You can Ritual Summon this card with "Black Illusion Ritual". Once per turn: You can target 1 monster your opponent controls; equip that target to this card. (You can only equip 1 monster at a time to this card with this effect.) This card's ATK and DEF become equal to that equipped monster's. If this card would be destroyed by battle, destroy that equipped monster instead. While equipped with that monster, any battle damage you take from battles involving this card inflicts equal effect damage to your opponent.
Why in the world would they make a guy with such a powerful effect a level 1. There are effectless beater ritual guys like the greasy hamburger that are lvl 6 and u can get lvl 4 beaters with basically the same stats.
Try "murmur of the forest" it will change the card to face-down defense position, and when relinquished is face down, he loses his equiped card (also it returns all field spell cards on the field to the hand, so it's vert useful in other situations too)
