  • You can tribute summon this Level 7 monster for one tribute.
  • It can special summon the monsters that it destroyed and send to the graveyard.
  • Can be special summoned from the Graveyard by Red-Eyes Spirit and Red-Eyes Wyvern
  • Can be special summoned from hand by using Gozuki's effect.
  • This card can be tribute summoned with one tribute using Double Coston.


  • Attack is pretty low for a Level 7 monster.
  • It's very unlikely for your opponent to have a Zombie-Type monster, which makes it effect pretty unusable.
  • One tribute effect only works if the monster to be tributed is a Zombie-Type.

Tips, related cards, skills

Cards like Give and Take, and Mystic Box can be used to send your zombie monsters to your opponent. Destroying them with Zombie Dragon will let you special summon them back to your field.



Red-Eyes Deck

Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon has a lot of synergy in a Red-Eyes deck since it can be special summoned using Gozuki, Red-Eyes Wyvern, or Red-Eyes Spirit.

Why is this card rated only at 6.5? Its effect being "unusable" is a stretch as the preview dedicated an entire combo to its effect. Also for a 1 tribute, 2400 attack and 2000 defense is quite good. While I would have to say that it has low general use, it shines as a key component in zombie and red eyes decks. I mean no disrespect but are the rating based off of how "teachable" a card is or how good a card is in the specified cards related deck? An answer would be appreciated.

It's *not* a stretch at all. combos you see in duel school tutorials can be difficult to set up in real matches due to the randomness of what may happen in an actual match where not everything is all there and set up for you.

To call an effect "unusable" means the effect isn't usable. This is a stretch as the effect is more than usable in real duel situations, As I have proven to myself. Especially given that there are cards to support this effect, it is unquestionably a stretch.

Usable yes, but good? Not really, it's somewhat situational since you also need Zombie World on the field.
Try DNA surgery use it with it and Econ and you can otk every game trust
Still a thing after 2 years, wow
I'm thinking of running this card alongside Red-Eyes Necro.
Will work with zombie world. Just saw someone put together a decent deck using it.

Red-Eyes Slash Dragon Effect doesn't work when Donpa is targetting it. FIX IT Please. Lost so much battle even if it clearly mention "Target" in both card's description!

If Donpa's effect is chained with another effect, Red-Eyes Slash misses the timing and cannot protect itself.
What about this deck? Kinda outdated. How can i make it work? Got no zombie stuff

DNA surgery is in game weevil 40
Give and take and mystic box can give opponents a zombie or if when creature swap comes to duel links. I don't see zombie world but maybe a skill like harpy hunting ground for zombie world.
Something like when you lose 2,000 lp all monsters on field and grave become
Zombies. Technically ishizu does have the skull servant skill which red eyes zombie maybe able to use.
But GnT mystic are minor fixes til a card or skill like zombie world shows up red zombie is less useful for its effect
