Neither player can activate Trap cards and its effects as long as this monster is face up on the Field.
You cannot activate Trap cards as well.
Can still be overpowered by opponent’s higher ATK monsters, or Spell effects that destroys it.
This card is limited edition currently so you will need either heavy draw power or efficient search ability to retrieve this card from your Deck quickly.
You can consider using Espa Roba’s unique Skill Psychic Onslaught in order to increase more Jinzo copies in your Deck.
The summoning of Jinzo can still be negated by cards like Solemn Scolding or Champion’s Vigilance because these cards are Spell Speed 3 activation that negates monster’s summoning during pre-summoning phase.
You cannot use Escape from the Dark Dimension to summon Jinzo from your Banished zone because Jinzo’s effect will immediately negate and destroy Escape from the Dark Dimension and cause Jinzo to be destroyed as well.
Soul Exchange directly tributes 1 of your opponent’s monster in order to Summon Jinzo to the Field. Psychic Shockwave can be situational but it can Special Summon Jinzo from your Deck, when your opponent activates Trap card. You will need to discard a Spell/Trap card as a cost.
Jinzo - Returner can attack your opponent directly, and if it was destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, it’s effect allows you to Special Summon Jinzo from your Graveyard to the Field. However, that Jinzo will be destroyed during the End Phase. You can prevent that by using Jinzo - Lord, an upgraded version of Jinzo, by tributing that Special Summoned Jinzo and Summon Jinzo - Lord to the Field. Similarly, it will negate all Trap cards effects, additionally it can also destroy all face-up Trap cards once per turn, inflicting 300 damage per face-up trap card to your opponent. Heavy Mech Support Armor is an additional utility to be equipped to Jinzo, so that it cannot be targeted by your opponent’s card effects and if Jinzo would be destroyed by battle, this card acts as protection and is destroyed instead.
Gold Sarcophagus can be an alternative way to search for Jinzo from your Deck quickly, but it will also alert your opponent that you intend to use Jinzo. Machine Assembly Line increases all Machine-type monsters ATK by 200, and it can use 6 Junk counters to Special Summon Jinzo from Graveyard. Forbidden Dress can be used as protection for Jinzo to prevent it from destruction, and cannot be targeted or destroyed by card effects, for that turn. My Body as a Shield allows you to pay 1500 LP to negate an opponent’s Spell/Trap/Monster effect that would destroy your Jinzo. This card cannot be used during Damage Step. Gravity Blaster is a very good equip card for your Jinzo to further increase its attack every turn, and negates monster effects that it destroys via Battle.
So now Roba is at the gate... but the 2nd copy of this is completely unavailable for all players who didn't manage to get the absurd amount of points needed for it during the event. They added a lifelong mission for the skill but not for the second Jinzo. So unfair.
Dream tickets were given but this card is not in any. The "How to Obtain" part for this card just mentions "Espa Roba's starter deck". The second copy is so hidden and was so hard to get that even the game advice omits it. They really need to give the 2nd copy for those who didn't get that absurd quantity of points needed for it. They made a mission to get the skill... all that's left is this.

Jinzo is actually a lot better in an Ojama deck, some guy made it to top 20 in the kc cup with armed dragon 5, jinzo and sphere kuribohs.
