Card traderTradable [SR]
[Required trader items]
  • SR Jewel x5
  • Stone of Water x40
  • 35,000 Gold




  • Has a very high attack which can surpass most of the other high level monsters.
  • It has a devastating effect that can wipe out the field and hand which makes your opponent totally defenseless.


  • It takes time to summon since it can only be summoned by tributing a Levia-Dragon - Daedalus.
  • You need to have an Umi in your field to activate its effect.
  • 1600 defense is pretty low for a high level monster. It's an easy target if it's switched to defense position.


Daedalus & Umi

Summoning Neo-Daedalus requires Levia-Dragon - Daedalus on your field, which makes it difficult since Levia-Dragon - Daedalus is a high level monster, and activating its effect, requires an Umi on the field.

You can special summon Levia-Dragon - Daedalus using Big Wave Small Wave, so you can special summon Neo-Daedalus when you have him in your hand. It uses up a lot of cards, but if you are planning on activating its ability, then it won't matter that much.

Alternative field spells

Forgotten Temple of the Deep and A Legendary Ocean can use to substitute for the usual Umi. This means that you won't have to use Mako's exclusive character skill, and are able to use skills like "Restart". The other Umi alternative cards also provide different effects, making other playstyles viable.


Using Interdimensional Matter Transporter or Dimension Gate, you can banish your monsters so they won't be affected by Daedalus/Neo-Daedalus' effect. This will leave you with 2 or 3 monsters left, while your opponent with no cards on their field and hand.

Dedalus and Neo Dedalus are fun to play... And their art is beautiful too.

How are you guys so surprised by this card's effect? Both Daedalus cards are old school & WERE a thing back in the day. Even one of my fav starter decks. I mean, I'd partially understand the shock of this was a new card, but it is simply not. :/

Agreed. This is my fav structure deck as well. Back in the days when the structure deck Fury from the Deep was released, it was such a shock.

Once again, all you new bloods screaming "OP", just be glad this isn't the original ODL because he didn't need the 1st Daedalus to be summoned.

Neo-Daedalus, welcome to Duel Links. Now let's start wrecking it~

Yep. The original didn't require it. (Actually didn't know that until now lol)
<< Anonymous(AussieRiolu)
Daemon Blitzkrieg Reply
Yep yep. I believe they really changed it because --
1: It threw off focus from Daedalus as it had a way more devastating effect.
2: Define Overshadowed > See #1~
But yea, it was more likely an unintentional misprint that they didn't fix until the WC was over that year...or so. ('cause I DEFINITELY was never getting cards when they 1st came out, lol)

ACtually it always did. When the card was first printed in the TCG there was a printing error. The first few lines of it's text were missing. Upper Deck actually had a mail in deal where if you gave them your miss print they'll mail you the corrected card later during that time help fix the issue.

The original Japanese version and the current English is the correct printing.

UR = Good??? I guess that's why Axe Raider, Daedalus, BES Core, Sky Scourge, etc are UR? Because they're fantastic cards!Either way DW isn't the worst card in the game but isn't worth using because of the discard effect. Better off running cards that are less situational. IDK man just seems like you love some garbage cards when you suggest Overwhelm and Prime material falcon LOL

why do people can't compare cards apple terms of countering monster effects, divine wrath is much better than ultimate providence. using dw let you discard any types of card, but if you're using up and no monster in your hand, you're dead. also, you need normal monster for otc, still more situasional than dw.

dw are less popular because people need efficiency in countering spell/trap, not just monster effects, and up will be more efficient than dw for that purpose. but dw is still the best trap for countering monster effects in any situation.

Using enemy control is useless. They can still switch back to atk position. Even if you take his monster. Next turn you still be dead.

Lol, you need luck for that, with only 1 draw, you may get twister and Facebook yourself while surrendering.

But neo daedalus skill lis sent to graveyard not destroy so cards like prime material falcon, wild tornado,etc cant prevent the skill
Emil J.
For personal reasons I am glad to see this card. A very devasting ability if pulled of. But that's a big IF, as it requires one specific monster (that first needs to be tribute/special summoned) and a specific labeled umi-card to use its effect, leaving ALOT of margin for error. Other than the nostalgia, the requirements for the payoff is kinda meh. But once the tide turns, there is little to no hope once the ability is executed successfully.
