If a face-up "Fire King" monster you control is destroyed by a card effect (except during the Damage Step): You can Special Summon this card from your hand. If this card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard: You can destroy 1 card in your hand or that you control. You can only use this effect of "Fire King Avatar Yaksha" once per turn.
Attack is high for a monster that doesn't require a tribute.
This card can be Special Summoned from you hand.
Defense is very low which makes it an easy target when switched to defense position.
A "Fire King" monster should be destroyed by a card effect so it could be Special Summoned from your hand.
Utilizing Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys
When Fire King Avatar Yaksha is destroyed and sent to your Graveyard, you can destroy Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys from your hand. By doing this, Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys will be special summoned on your next Standby Phase and it will destroy all Spell and Traps on the field.
Fire Kings Synergy
By using Fire King Island's effect, you can destroy Fire King Avatar Kirin on the field to get Fire King Avatar Yaksha from your deck. By doing that, you can use Fire King Avatar Yaksha's effect which is to Special Summon it from your hand. It's basically replacing a weaker monster with a better one.
Activates from your Graveyard
Destroys your Monster Cards / Destroys your Spell Cards / Destroys your Trap Cards / Destroys hand
Special Summons itself from your hand

Can someone explain to me why this still works even if its negated by aromaseraphy jasmine? I get its "not face up" when its destroyed, but the effect to negate is until end of turn, so it shouldn't get its effect after being sent to grave
Newbie question, does e-con also destroy this monster or just send it to graveyard???
Problem: I try use e-con on this card (steal monster from opponent) to special summon another copy from my hand. Didn't work.
If you are destroying a FIRE monster, then yes, that is a bug. But if you are not destroying a FIRE monster, then that is not a bug, you are missing the timing because Kickfire activates when you destroy a FIRE monster, and the last action that you took was destroying a card that was not a FIRE monster.
Actually suck you discard or destroy ur own monster if this card destroyed
You can use this effect to destroy your own traps like dark coffin and wild tornado.
Don't use this with autoduel. The effect always activates with autoduel and it ends up discarding Mirror Wall/E-Con/anything that is in your hand that autoduel believes is somehow beneficial to discard.
