  • Good attack stat.
  • Self attack boost.


  • Costly to summon.
  • Attack boost effect is costly.

Use these cards to search for Rainbow Dark Dragon. Rainbow Path negates an opponent’s attack and searches Rainbow Dark Dragon. Rainbow Gravity Special Summons Rainbow Dark Dragon from your deck if you have the proper graveyard setup. The Melody of Awakening Dragon can search Rainbow Dark Dragon because of its stats.

Graveyard Setup

Use these cards to put DARK monsters into your graveyard so you can Special Summon Rainbow Dark Dragon or use its effect.

Retrieve Banished monsters

Doomsday Horror and Burial from a Different Dimension can return banished DARK monsters to your graveyard, allowing you to boost Rainbow Dark Dragon’s attack further. Pot of Acquisitiveness can return banished monsters to your deck and let you draw a card.

"You can Special Summon this card (from your hand) by discarding 1 Level 5 or higher DARK monster. Once per turn: You can discard 1 DARK monster; send 1 DARK monster from your Deck to the Graveyard."

That's 3 DARK monsters in your Graveyard in a single turn.
I suppose the easiest way to summon this would be using the rainbow gravity trap card in the crystal beast deck

I know, not bad
This could work well with the ishizu skill that turn every card in the grevyard into skull servant. Also the dark creator and some more dark-related cards

For the ATK boost effect? Sure.

For the summoning though, you still need to gather 7 different DARKs in your graveyard by yourself.

Rainbow Dark Dragon + Grass and a lot of different dark monsters is a decent way to turbo it out

its summoning condition is 7 different DARK monster regardless of type so there is plenty of potential.. desperado dragon ect.. there are plenty of very useful dark cards to make this possible

Good luck building a decent deck with 8 or more different Dark type monsters. Even with That grass looks greener it's still damn unreliable. And it seems to brick a lot like most Grass decks.

Oh it’s definitely a casual brick fest, but at least Grass makes it somewhat “playable” and can instant set it up if you open well enough, unlike something else gimmicky like Venominaga who getting on the field is nearly impossible even casually
Jesse does have dialogue for using this card, check it out!

Dude they should add the field spell card for making crystal beasts all dark, or even the dark crystal beast anime cards

There is no "dark crystal beast", even in the anime.

They're just DARK because of the field spell, otherwise they're identical to the regular ones lol

there was no Dark Crystal Beast, they were Advanced Crsytal Beast, which were just cyrtsal beasts but needed the field
We just need rainbow neos to make this card useable

hah jokes on you due to ocg naming stupidity you cant even use it to fusion summon it
if you wanna learn more about this shenanigan watch rank 10 ygos crystal beast archetype archive on youtube

The video is outdated now due to the new Neo-Spacial support, and the OCG naming mix-up doesn’t stop Neos Fusion from being a simple 1-card Rainbow Neos.

Go watch Rank10’s support report if you haven’t already to hear for yourself

Umm, Rainbow Neos' material clearly states Rainbow Dark Dragon is a valid material.

And even if we're going by the new TCG errata that says Rainbow Neos uses an "Ultimate Crystal" monster, Rainbow Dark Dragon is also already reprinted in the TCG with the text that says it's treated as an "Ultimate Crystal" monster.

My bad I didnt know that errata stuff thanks guys fo letting me know
I doubt cards like Rainbow Neos and Ultimate Crystal Magic would be available yo get, especially for free
Are these 3 cards a good combo with this? Doomsday Horror,Gren Maju Da Eiza and, Trance Archfiend
Well, time to build a gimmicky turbo deck with this, a bunch of different Dark monsters and Grass
Rainbow Overkill Dragon
is it even possible to get this card in duel links?
<< Anonymous(WM)
Yes it is!
wow seems like they are teasing, maybe crystal beast will receive extra support in the future? :o
