“Inzektor” is an archetype of DARK Insect-Type monsters that debuted back in August in Empire of Scarlet. “Inzektor” monsters are able to equip themselves to or with other monsters of their own archetype from the hand or Graveyard in order to enable certain effects.
The archetype mostly focuses on Xyz Summoning, a mechanic that has not been introduced yet into the game, and, since no further support outside of their original Mini BOX has been released up to this point, it’s not a surprise it hasn’t seen much competitive play.
Inzektor is definitely a viable deck that can get you to King of Games, but the archetype is still lacking a few key components, namely Inzektor Dragonfly and Inzektor Hornet.

Lair Wire is a pretty decent Trap Card that allows you to destroy a monster on your opponent’s side of the field by banish an Insect-Type monster from your Graveyard. An Inzektor deck can easily fulfill the activation requirement of this card and use it to get rid of problematic monsters such as Masked HERO Anki.
Once per turn, Inzektor Centipede allows you to equip an “Inzektor” monster from your hand or Graveyard to it; being able to use your Graveyard as a resource is part of what makes this archetype so good. Notice that you can equip Inzektor Centipede with another Inzektor Centipede.
If an Equip Card is sent to the Graveyard while equipped to Inzektor Centipede, you can add an “Inzektor” card from your Deck to your hand. You can search not only monsters with this effect, but even Spell Cards like Inzektor Sword - Zektkaliber and Trap Cards like Inzektor Orb.
Inzektor Hopper can be sent to the Graveyard while it’s equipped to a monster to allow it to attack your opponent directly. The monster affected by Inzektor Hopper’s effect will be the only one able to declare an attack during the turn you activate this effect, but, if you consider that we only have 4000 Life Points to work with in Duel Links, it’s really not that big of a deal.
Inzektor Giga-Mantis can be equipped to a face-up Inzektor monster you control from your hand. Giga-Mantis changes the original ATK of the monster it’s equipped to to 2400 and, if it’s sent to the Graveyard while being equipped to a monster, it allows you to Special Summon another Inzektor monster from your Graveyard.
Giga-Mantis can’t, however, Special Summon itself from the Graveyard and its effect will not trigger if, for example, you tribute the monster it was equipped to or if that monster is destroyed.
Inzektor’s playing style is quite weak against cards like Floodgate Trap Hole and Paleozoic Canadia, both of which are quite common in the current meta: Hey, Trunade! provides a quick way of getting rid of your opponent’s backrow, possibly enabling an OTK.
Beatdown! This turn, the ATK of all face-up monsters on your field increases by the number of monsters of Level 5 or higher on your field times 300. This skill can only be used once per turn
When they are equipped to a monster of their own archetype, Inzektor Hopper, Inzektor Centipede and Inzektor Ladybug increase its Level by 4, 3 and 2 respectively, easily making it Level 5 or higher and giving it access to the ATK boost from this Skill.
