  • Can be Normal Summoned without tribute.
  • Reduced attack is still decent.
  • Can destroy all your opponent’s cards.


  • Summoning him in full strength is costly.
  • Summoning him with his nuke effect is even more costly.


Negate Effect

After Normal Summoning Beast King Barbaros with no tribute, you can bring him to full power by negating his effect. Axe of Fools can negate his effect while adding an additional 1000 attack. Forbidden Chalice is a great tech option and can be used on Beast King Barbaros to negate his effect.

Magical Hats

Use Magical Hats to flip Beast King Barbaros face-down. If Beast King Barbaros survives the battle phase then you can Flip Summon him with his full attack.

Temporary Banishing

Temporarily banish Beast King Barbaros using Dimensionhole, Dimension Gate, Different Dimension Gate, or Interdimensional Matter Transport. He will then return with his full 3000 attack.

Tribute Fodder

In case you want to use Beast King Barbaros’ field wipe effect here are some cards that can help. Trojan Horse and The First Monarch can be treated as 2 tributes reducing the overall cost of summoning Beast King Barbaros. Obedience Schooled can Special Summon monsters from your deck to use as tribute fodder.

High Level

Even when Normal Summoned without tribute, Beast King Barbaros still keeps his level. You can use this to your advantage by using cards like Advance Draw and Advance Force.





Good for synchro summoning high level monsters?

It depends. Many of them need 2 or more non-Tuners. But there are some that would work with this card.

The level stays at 8, so I don't see this card as being that useful for Synchro Summon.

There are some nice Level 9 to 11 Synchros that only need 1 Tuner and 1 Non-Tuner.

So....who said Konami will never put this card into DL because it's too OP?
This card + World Legacy Clash. Reduce opponent's monster ATK by 3000 as well as bring back this card's original ATK

Maybe x3 World Legacy Clash and x3 Forbidden Chalice with Barbaros and Fusilier Dragon. Now that's spicy.
Duel stand by will make his atk 3000 ye?

No, it's a Continuous Effect.
Similar to BRD effect but it affects your opponent's field pretty cool.

As long as you can keep 3 monsters up, but I agree. Definitely strong nuke potential with high damage follow up for decks that can spam monsters.
