  • High Attack value for a level 4 monster.
  • Can be Special Summoned by Tributing 1 monster, during the turn it was destroyed by its own effect.


  • Self-destructs after it conducts its attack, during your End Phase.
  • Has no DEF value, susceptible to position switching plays.


  • You can make use of Hieratic Dragon of Gebeb’s effect, by Tributing it in order to Special Summon Infernal Dragon from your Graveyard, in turn Hieratic Dragon of Gebeb’s effect allows you to Special Summon 1 Normal Hieratic monster from your Hand, Deck or Graveyard.
  • This monster’s effect when being destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, also applies during your opponent’s Battle Phase.


You can use Strike Ninja’s effect to banish 2 D.D. Scout Plane from your Graveyard, so that D.D. Scout Plane can be Special Summoned to your Field. They can be used as Tributes to Special Summon Infernal Dragon from your Graveyard (after it was destroyed by its own effect during your End Phase). Therefore, D.D. Scout Plane that was used as Tribute once again returns to your Graveyard, and you may use Strike Ninja’s effect again later on.


You can make use of Double Attack to allow Infernal Dragon to attack twice in order to maximize its uses before it is sent to the Graveyard. You can use Forbidden Chalice to temporarily halt its self-destruct effect for that turn. Alternatively, you can choose to use Powerful Rebirth to Special Summon Infernal Dragon from your Graveyard. After you have attacked with Infernal Dragon, simply use Dragon’s Rebirth on it to banish it instead, in order to Special Summon a stronger Dragon-type monster such as Blue Eyes White Dragon, from your hand or Graveyard. Axe of Fools can permanently negate Infernal Dragon’s self-destructive effects (as long as it is equipped to it), at the same time boosts its ATK by another 1000, but it comes with a steep price of paying 500 LP during each of your Standby Phases.

Infernal means "from hell", so it's essentially the same name. (And sounds a little less generic IMO. "Hell Dragon" sounds like what a 6-year old would call the dragon they drew in crayon.)

very unlikely, since it will be destroyed during the end phase, not after the attack.

Eh, you can combo it with Des Counterblow, but that still requires you to Tribute other monsters, so isn't super-useful.
Would work well with Hieratic Dragon Gebeb.
