When this card is Normal Summoned: You can target 1 monster on the field; change that target to face-up Defense Position.

If you control these flip monsters, you can use Black Brachios to flip them face-up and use their effects. Except for Man Eater Bug, Medusa Worm and Guardian Statue can choose to flip themselves face-down, and be flipped face-up again, during the same turn. This way you can target multiple monsters from your opponent’s field to either destroy them or return them to hand.
Book of Taiyou has the similar function to flip face-down monsters to face-up Attack position, but since it is a Spell card, it is without doubt faster than placing 1 flip monster and Black Brachios.
Together with these position switching cards, Black Brachios can effectively combo with Tragedy in order to decimate your opponent’s monsters that are in Defense position. These position switching cards also function to protect Black Brachios and other monsters on your field.
Black Brachios is able to benefit from Dino-type support. Jurassic World to increase its attack and defense by 300 points, Fossil Excavation to return Black Brachios from the Graveyard to the field, and Hunting Instinct can be used to Special Summon Black Brachios, should your opponent Special Summons a monster. Fossil Dig can be used to search out Black Brachios from your deck.
