Activate this card by targeting 1 Set Spell/Trap Card your opponent controls. Your opponent cannot activate the targeted card in response to this card's activation. While this card is face-up on the field, that Set card cannot be activated. All Beast-Warrior-Type monsters you control gain 100 ATK.

  • Locks down a designated Spell/Card from your opponent’s backrow.
  • Grants your Beast-Warrior Type monsters ATK bonus.


  • Potentially clogs your own backrow as well since it is a 1 card for 1 card lockdown basis.


  • Due to the current zone format, we are yet to see the full potential of Fire Fist monsters because their Spell/Traps potentially clogs your backrow while the trade-off benefit is not really worth it.
  • Overall, this card does not provide significant improvement to Fire Fist monsters, and even less flexibility in other decks. Current meta is still too fast paced for Fire Fist monsters, should they remain without any breakthrough.
  • As an individual Spell card, it may be comparable to cards such as Nobleman of Extermination to disrupt your opponent’s face-down Spell/Traps, there are better alternatives such as Cosmic Cyclone, which is a Quick-play Spell to banish opponent’s Spell/Trap cards thus being more versatile and does not clog your backrow.

Fire Fist monsters

These are the Fire Fist monsters that can synergize well with Fire Formation – Gyokkou.

They can't chain the targeted card to Gyokkou directly. However, if something else is chained to Gyokkou, they'll then be able to chain the target to THAT, since they're no longer chaining it to Gyokkou.

can get you to plat ez (assuming you have many copies, and 1800-1900 beast warriors. Plus you can shut down Wall of D. ez).

Still raw power can only get you so far.

I think this card is wildly under-rated.
Yes, it uses 1 slot but at the same time it blocks 1 opponent slot, AND the card it blocks can't be activated in response.
if used in a deck that doesn't relay heavily on the back row so you don't care much about clogging this card can be really strong.
Am i wrong?

No, you're right. Many CA players used Gyokkou as tech card in their deck and got KOG

Good point OP.
I had a problem with this card during the KC: i activated gyokku to lock down a face down card on my opponent's field, but after i activated my spell opponent activated the card which i targeted. Is this card bugged or opponent was cheating me?

if they have a second face down card they can activate it and then chain the one u targeted

No he activated the card which i targeted without activating other spell/traps to counter my fire formation: the card i targeted was xing zhen hu, and after locked down my face down spells and traps the fire formation was still on the field (i'm replying my own post)
This card is under rated by game a. Fire formation gyokku is better than cards that destroy opponent's backrow (cosmic cyclone, nobleman of extermination etc...) since this card locks down the opponent's card, unclogs his backrow (1 less spell/trap slot) and the card cannot be activated in response, while even you destroy an opponent's card with cylone or nobleman he can set another card in next turn

Nope. If you play 2 set cards u can activate the other one and chain the targeted card to dribble that

what an hyprocrite, you are a fakest person on here and now defending someone as If was your gf while in all your comments you talk shit abouts everyones opinion
Your opponent has 3 set s/t + this card activated on 1 of the card + xing zhen hu on other 2 = total backrow restrict with 1 slot open to be used
Tea surprise present+ sergeant+fire fist deck+ this work really well.
This would be funny with floodgate and electro. Just locking all of my opponent zone plus with Ojama fusion as well. Might try that for fun when it is released for fun sake
Even with no beast warrior support this card is pretty strong. Not allowing you to chain is just powerful like anti magic arrows is. Might need to build a good beast warrior deck with this even without it its strong
