  • Opponent unable to respond with Spell/Trap when this card attacks, until the end of damage step.
  • Inflicts Piercing Damage.
  • Very powerful ATK and DEF stats.


  • Cannot be Special Summoned.
  • Requires 2 tributes to summon.

Tips, Related Cards, Rulings

  • Being the strongest ATK and DEF stats monster in its archetype, this card is an extremely powerful attack machine that can go straight for your opponent's’ monsters or even attack your opponents directly, disregarding any face-down -
    Spell/Traps they have in place.
    However, Sphere Kuriboh can still be used to switch your Ancient Gear Golem’s position so do take note on that, although by doing so your Golem still remains as a powerful defense monster on the field.
  • Always remember, Ancient Gear archetypes have access to both Machine-type support cards and Ancient Gear support cards, so you can build your deck with the best support cards among them.
  • Do take note that before/during attack declaration, your Ancient Gear monsters are still susceptible to cards like Forbidden Chalice, which will negate your Ancient Gear monsters suppression effect until your End Phase, in which this will allow your opponents to respond with their face-down Spell/Traps during your Damage step.
  • During a mirror match, if the opponent’s Ancient Gear monster attacks your Ancient Gear monster which is equipped with Gravity Blaster, it will negate your opponent’s Ancient Gear monster’s suppression effect and allows you to respond with face-down spell/traps.

Suppression during Battle Phase

These are among the most prominent Spell/Trap cards in current meta that are triggered during Battle Phase, to protect monsters on the field and it will be suppressed by Ancient Gear Golem during its battle phase.

Speed summon methods

  • Using Mausoleum of the Emperor, you can pay 2000 LP to Normal summon Ancient Gear Golem.
  • Using Soul Exchange, you can tribute 1 of the opponent’s monster as 1 tribute to summon Ancient Gear Golem, but it cannot attack that turn.
  • You can substitute Ancient Gear Castle with 2 Counters to Normal summon Ancient Gear Golem.
  • Spell Gear is exclusively used to bring out Ancient Gear Golem even faster, but you must have 3 face-up “Ancient Gear” cards on the field. (Can be Monster/Spell cards)
  • You can use Stray Lambs to provide tokens in order to summon Ancient Gear Golem, but it must be set in Face down defense mode.

Machine support

This is the recommended support card for Ancient Gear Golem. Reason being not only this card boosts it’s attack by 400 every turn, it also grants Ancient Gear Golem the ability to negate monster effects that it destroys, effectively making it heavily immune to Spell/Trap/Monster Effects during the Battle Phase. And as a bonus, the 400 attack increase will continue every turn, even after this card is removed from the field. However, do take note that monsters’ effects are still able to be activated from the graveyard.

These are the useful support cards that can assist Ancient Gear Golem even further.

Bet you're wrong.
You get 1st AG Golem When you unlock Crowler (in his starter deck) and one more in special duel against him (not sure which one). This should be added to "How to Get - Other"
In the future, this card will better than Blue eyes and Red eyes

This card now has a 4300Atk fusion monster, we'll see how it goes
Absolute Deal
With Crowler's skill, this Golem equipped with Air Cracking Storm results in pretty early OTKs.
So I've played a few games in a row and it doesn't give me a chance to activate sphere kuriboh against his attack?? Any ideas why.. is this a game error or something to do with the settings or am I just wrong and sphere kuriboh counts as a spell??

I saw a video where ebola worked to stop him, maybe the toggle?

The AG ability doesn't stop monster effects when attacking (only Beast after destruction). Get your Activation settings fixed. :/
I feel like I should already have the 100 summon game mat for this card, could it not count if I normal summon it with Ancient Gear Castle?

Sad how you still can't get KOG this late in the season with 3 CV BEWD deck, which shows how trashy the deck is even without the ban being hit. After the ban, it will be tier 5 deck.

gotta rely on backrow when you play with a brain and not a beatdown little card, also not p2w but pws
no protection from cyber dakini effect tho
Will Michizure work on this?
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
Yes and no. It'll work outside of the damage step, but if you're thinking of using this after your monster is destroyed by Golem, then it won't work due to Golem's effect.

So if this card destroys a monster, the opponent can't use Michizure in response, right?
<< Anonymous

Can't use Michizure if Ancient Gear Golem (or another Ancient Gear with similar effect) destroys a monster, but you can still use Michizure on Ancient Gear Golem if for example Vorse Raider or Tribute to the Doomed destroys your monster.
