This card is treated as a Normal Monster while face-up on the field or in the Graveyard. While this card is face-up on the field, you can Normal Summon it to have it become an Effect Monster with this effect.● If your opponent activates a Spell Card: You can target 1 Gemini monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target. During either player's turn, when a Spell/Trap Card is activated that targets a monster(s) on the field: You can send 1 face-up Equip Card you control to the Graveyard; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy it.
Since this card can be special summoned, you can use Blazing Hiita on a monster you control or a token to special summon him.
Use Super Double Summon to have his ability up immediately. This is mostly if you are certain your opponent will be using spell cards or prevent them from using any. If they do, you can revive a gemini monster from your graveyard.
Equip him with Smoke Grenade of the Thief once his effect is already available. This can prevent your opponent from using spells altogether.
Me too! First pack in the game and of the BOX, got Phoenix Gearfried!
The game glitched on me and gave me two Phoenix Gearfrieds without resetting the box and 4 screeches(SR) which sucks cause screech is such a lame card. And now that I reset the box it gave me my third Phoenix Gearfried
He clearly states that screech is a lame card. Idk about you, but thats a pretty good reason to assume he was somewhat unhappy with the fact he collected four screech's with this glitch rather than something else that he would find useful, imo... Anyway, open your mind bub & attempt to look at things from different perspectives &/or notice the inevitable possibilities before stating your opinion.
Order to Charge actually DOES target on activation. After that, it does NOT target an enemy mons.
The game (actually this card) is bugged. I've been meaning to run a meta deck with Gearfried and Destruction Swordmaster, but right now, Fried's effect cannot be triggered while an enemy monster is equipped to Buster Blader. I know it works bcs I tested it on YGOpro. How the hell hasn't this been noticed? This shouldn't be a bug.
