  • Excellent DEF stats.
  • Able to lock down 1 designated opponent’s monster from attacking or tributed for Tribute summon.


  • You need to pay 500 Life points during each of your End Phase as maintenance cost for this card.
  • Weak ATK stats.
  • Needs to remain face-up in order for its effect to remain active.


Lock Monsters

You can Special Summon Lava Golem to your opponent’s field, and protect yourself for 1 turn. The next turn you can Normal Summon Grapple Blocker and lock down Lava Golem, so your opponent will still take 1000 Life Points damage every turn as long as Lava Golem is on their field.


These cards help you recover Life Points since you need to pay Life Points every one of your End Phase as maintenance cost for Grapple Blocker.


  • Remember to protect your Grapple Blocker if your opponent has multiple monsters on the field. You can only switch it to defense position during the next turn after you have Normal Summoned it.
  • This monster is completely negated by cards like Floodgate Trap Hole and Ultimate Providence, with Floodgate Trap Hole being very popular protection card in the current meta.

Hey does it count if I facedown this, and when it gets flip summoned can I use the effect? Or only normal summon?

Only Normal Summon.

If it would count for Flip Summon or Set it would be stated on the card.

Normal =/= flip

You are a 🔥ed moron.

You think This pos card is comparable to Woodland Sprite???? What kind of dumb🔥 didn't instantly see how OP WS is? You'd have to be a total dumbass not to see how strong that could would be.

Name a way this COULD be useful. I'll even let you name cards outside of duel links.

Nothing? No you're a stupid 🔥 optimist.

Almost. It is ALMOST good in this way. Literal trash in all other forms. If it didn't cost 500 lp a turn this would be a truly legit use for this card.
I want Esba Roba (since he is "psychic") to shout "Grapple Blocker! Use Tentacle Rapeeeee!" XD
