  • Decent ATK stats.


  • Special Summoned monster has its effects negated.
  • This monster must be Special Summoned by an effect of a “Gladiator Beast” monster in order to activate its effect.


  • Special Summoning Gladiator Beast monsters from your Graveyard also allows you to set up for contact Fusion of stronger Gladiator Beast monsters such as Heraklinos and Nerokius.

Gladiator Beast

Gladiator Beast Heraklinos, Nerokius, Essedarii are the Fusion “Gladiator Beast” monsters which you can Special Summon from your Graveyard as a strong beater, because they cannot activate their effects.

Gladiator Beast Octavius and Augustus are also options to be considered because of their high ATK value, and Octavius does not require you to discard a card as maintenance, since its effects are negated.

Gladiator Beast Augustus, Alexander, Laquari, Murmillo, Beastiari, Dimicari, Equeste, Retiari can Special Summon Darius from your Deck, if they attacked or was attacked.

Essential Support

These cards are the essentials in a Gladiator Beast deck as they are able to protect your Gladiator Beasts from being destroyed by battle after it was being attacked, or you attacked using them.

About the last effect of gladiator beast Darius, is the "return to the deck and special summon" thing works even if he send to the graveyard?

No, same with all Gladiator Beasts.
Will we have à chance To get the card again?
Horse dude is not bad, but yeah, too bad there's no main phase 2. Anyway, still strong and worth getting.
What is the goddamn point of this card? There is no main phase 2 in DL so the GB you ss with his effect can't be used as fusion material, and it is shuffled into the deck during the end phase so you can't use it to attack.

You may not have impenetrable attack but with a properly balanced deck, you should always have a back row set. Not a useless card at all

Haven't met many Hey Trunade users. The problem is more with Amazoness(and now FH) being very strong against GBs. Before they were decent(useful against MH/some other decks) but with those 2 common ones, they can't really compete with.

you don't really think that GB are good against MH? I play MH since like two months and never ever lost a single game to GB

What can do MH? They have low ATK monster and 2 fusion ones. That's all. I don't say it's easy, but it depends on both sides(especially with Mask Change). If you don't draw Poly/MC or it get somehow 'negated', then you are vulnerable.
It's funny that the usable cards from the box are all R-SR rarity, and this sh!t is UR.
Sweet, fusion glad beasts just got easier

This is totally one of the skills that should have been available to all characters by default. ...
