The effect is only in play when it's Normal or Flip Summoned. When it's removed from the field, its effect doesn't "continue counting", and since it doesn't get Normal or Flip Summoned upon return, its effect simply does nothing

Summoning monsters from a card effect is Special Summon, not Normal or Flip Summon so it won't work.
Rope of life might give it enough boost to survive but I think it would be a waste. There is probably a card somwhere good for this monster but it's not common apparently.

The double stats effect only triggers upon normal or flip summon though, so rope of life will just resurrect it as a generic 1900 akt monster.
security orb, half shut and sphere kuriboh is the best way to save this card for one turn.

Actually windstorm of etequa, curse of anubis or half shut are the best way. The other ones protect only one attack.
Maybe Staunch Defender will defend this card if there is a high-level monster beside it
No it doesn't. I tried it.
