Wow power of the guardians is great with this card. Pretty funny combo
You Won't Regret it
It is good its just very underated. A fun deck would be having at least 3x Drill barnacle and 3x Power of the guardians. Its very cheezy!
Soon will be a game changer.

Considering how long we've had Raging Flame Sprite, and how little it's done... Yeah, totally.

We also have Mucus Yolk already, for years.
You use twin swords equip spell and the new 1500atk increase spell can't remember it but but basically drill barnacle then equip it with twin swords and use that spell to increase it's attack twice for a otk easy
I, uh, made a decklist for this card...

3x drill barnacle
3x mucus yolk (don’t have to run, still in development)
3x skull marked ladybug
1-2 spell striker
2x double attack
2x Kunai with chain
Any protection you want

Skill: restart or balance

Basically you want to use double attack to consistently get drill barnacle to 2300 attack (+1000 after an attack), then protect it until your next turn so that you can attack with it and hopefully another monster. It’s just a deck for fun

Don't use Mucus Yolk... It's a weak card, and it also needs an ATK boost in the first place to deal damage in order to gain ATK. Also, Raging Flame Sprite was obtainable from the Fire and Water Towers, and is obviously better anyway.
more cancer card

This card makes me wonder what we will get for Ryoga if Zexal world is released.

This is one of his early low level cards.....I doubt they are really going to give us more Drill Barnacle from Ryoga when players would have a lot from whatever this card is obtained from, so what are they going to replace it with when we get Zexal world?

...By your logic, we should be concerned about Joey's potential cardpool because Magical Arm Shield, Paladin of Dark Dragon, Gearfried the Iron Knight and Kunai with Chain were all released in booster packs.

Those aren't even his early cards.

He didn't even started playing Gearfried until Battle City!

Water support of course. They will give him anything that related to water. Since his whole deck is bunch of water cards.

I went for the most-played of his cards that ended up in Booster Packs. But if you want to go down the Duelist Kingdom route... Garoozis, Salamandra, Tiger Axe, Axe Raider.
Will this card lose the attack bonus when banished by SSA?

It will, since it is removed from the field, any ATK gain it received is reset.

Once there was an Ugly Barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The End.

I know the artist didn't copy anyone. But the card reminds me of JUSTICE from Afro Samurai.
A shame he can't attack directly.
