  • Enormous boost to its ATK and DEF when battling Warrior-type monsters.
  • Good base DEF stats.


  • Situational Card, ATK and DEF boost only applies when battling Warrior-type monsters.


  • This card can be a good addition to your Machine-type themed deck, with the prominent usage of Warrior-type monsters such as Six Samurai decks currently.


You can protect Kinetic Soldier by using Pulse Mines to switch all your opponent’s summoned/would-be summoned monsters to DEF position for that turn. You can equip Gravity Blaster to further enhance its basic ATK and also negate monster effects that activate after it destroys it via battle.Super Rush Headlong may be an option to protect your monster, if your opponent decides to use a non-Warrior-type monster to attack your Kinetic Soldier.

DNA Surgery

DNA Surgery turns every face-up monster into Warrior-types. This way Cipher Soldier will always gain his buff when battling.

Useful Skill

[Skill] descriptionUser
The Tie that Binds
Until the end of you turn, the ATK of all face-up monsters on your field increases by the number of monsters on your field times 100. This skill can only be used once per turn.

Someday my opponent summoned 2 Shi En out of the blue in the first turn. then I summoned this card alone + some backrow.

The guy surrendered immediately.
Damn and then people say samurais are broken. Fail
can't believe people actually wanted this card limited in the past. It was so laughable to read them complaining.
I attacked a Destiny Hero Decider with Cipher Soldier and he didn't get 2000 ATK. Any idea why? Destiny Hero's a warrior type after all. He was only equipped with power of the guardians.
To become vaible against the meta, I must become the one thing I am mildly annoyed by.
Just a sample deck of Kinetic/Cipher Soilder. Basically the minumum you will need is max Cipher, DNA Surgery and Spikeshield. The skills My Monster Cards or Restart are what I personally recommend, and use whatever tech monsters you like. Finally, some backrow removers and Warrior Elimination are nice additions.

Basically, use Kinetic in face down defense with DNA Surgery and Spikeshield on Standby. When your opponent attacks, at the damage step, activate them and laugh as you OTK them on their turn (Or at least serverly damage them).

Why did you create this piece of crap? It's because of scum like you that I have to fill my decks with backrow removal and risk bricking.
