1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters Once per turn, if all monsters you control are EARTH Warrior-Type Synchro Monsters (min. 1): You can Special Summon "Goyo Defender" from your Extra Deck. When this card is targeted for an attack: You can make this card gain 1000 ATK for each EARTH Warrior-Type Synchro Monster you control (other than this card), until the end of the Damage Step.
You can Normal Summon a level-1 Tuner while Quillbolt hedgehog is in your graveyard. Quillbolt Hedgehog will special summon himself and you can use both monsters to Synchro summon. You can also special summon Goyo Defender with a copy of himself on the field.
EARTH Warrior Synchro
Here are the EARTH Warrior monsters that will help Goyo Defender boost himself.
There's only 1.5 LV2 Synchros that AREN'T Tuners. (Assault Blackwing - Sayo the Rain Hider isn't one by default, but becomes one if you use a Blackwing to Synchro Summon it.) T.G. Recipro Dragonfly is the only one that is purely just a non-Tuner.
Only Goyo Chaser on the field and l cant summon it. What am l doing wrong? Is it bugged?
I'd imagine along the lines of What Grows in the Graveyard puts Dark Verger in the Graveyard, you Normal Summon Spore, Synchro into Defender, Defender into Defender, use Spore's effect to Summon it by banishing Verger.
goyo defender is a good card to get out a quick synchro monster
Nothing. The special summon is Defender's on field effect so he is useless af unless we can get it as a drop reward
I understand that there are better Goyo’s you can get from the skill, but it’s best to think of it as After you’ve Synchro Summoned another Goyo, or X Saber, or any other Earth-Warrior Synchro, unless you had 3 monsters on the field before the Synchro and only used 2, you get to Special Summon this thing for no Extra Cost, either to be a 2000 Attack monster if your opponent attacks it before the other Synchro is removed, or as a Level 3 that can be used as Synchro Material
