  • 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.

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.

my thoughts exatcly! I played the shit out of Joey The Passion, Kaiba The Revenge and Yugi the Destiny like a decade ago. Good times.
I don't know but if you use this Card, Gamushara and this DNS Card (to change all Monster into warrior type monster)you can easy win in one turn, am I wrong?

only if your opponents monster are big enough to deal massive damage with gamushara but not so big that the can run over the boosted KS

The thing about Gamushara is, you will only damage equal to your monster's ATK, unless you reduce your enemy's ATK. Without ATK modification, Kinetic Soldier + Gamushara will always only do 3350 LP dmg against a warrior monster.
We at Konami were fucked pretty hard by heroes and amazoness, so now we you little filthy kids.
