Important to note that Mask Change cannot be used during Damage Step.
If your targeted HERO monster leaves your Field due to other card’s effects, when Mask Change was activated, you may not Special Summon Masked HERO Anki. Possible scenarios include Enemy Controller chained to your Mask Change, in order to take control of your targeted HERO monster.
You can use Mask Change on your Masked HERO Anki during your battle phase, to Special Summon another Masked HERO Anki, for possible OTK.
This Quick-Play Spell card is the only card that can Special Summon Masked HERO Anki currently. It can also be searched via Masked HERO Anki’s effect.
Destiny HERO Support
The main reason of using Masked HERO Anki together with Destiny HERO monsters is because all Destiny Hero monsters are DARK attribute, regardless of face-up or face-down, therefore Mask Change can be easily applied to them. Destiny HERO decks have incredible drawing mechanism which makes Masked HERO Anki a powerful addition to their deck. Recommended Destiny HERO - Drilldark because it is able to Special Summon another “Destiny HERO” monster from your Hand, with ATK equal or less than Destiny HERO - Drilldark. This grants you more options to use Mask Change on, and you can also choose to use Mask Change during your Battle Phase, after you have attacked with Destiny HERO - Drilldark, to Special Summon Masked HERO Anki for additional attacks. Destiny HERO - Dreamer is able to protect your HERO monster from being destroyed by battle, while being special summoned to the Field, it can also act as a fodder for you to apply Mask Change on it to Special Summon Masked HERO Anki. Destiny HERO - Celestial mainly is used to be banished together with another Destiny HERO monster from your Graveyard in order to draw more cards, and if it attacks, it can destroy 1 face-up Spell card your opponent controls. D-Spirit allows you to Special Summon 1 level 4 or lower Destiny HERO monster from your hand, provided you do not control another Destiny HERO on the Field.
Destiny Calling (Skill) Can be used after your Life Points are at 2000 or below. Play the Field Spell "Dark City." If there already is Field Spell on your side of the Field, return it to your hand. This skill can only be used once per Duel.
So the Vegabond Special Summoned this card using Mask Change, and I Massivemorphed the card so he could not attack me directly. Yet, he was able to attack me directly with the double Attack Points. Is this a bug or am I not understanding something about this card?
Wow, I thought this was a bug that someone exploited on me... But I just tried it with Submarineroid and it works. You just have to make sure toggle is on and it has to be the damage step not the "declared battle" step or the "battle" step.
Mask change to first anki, wipe a monster, search mask change, then change into another anki for massive push or even game.

This monster only works for D-Heros(vision heros too) because masked change tribute a hero and special summon a masked hero with the same attribute that the hero tributed, and E-Heros only necroshade is dark attribute.
Pfft, you're so, so wrong. Necroshade isn't the only DARK Elemental HERO available. There's also Elemental HERO Dark Neos. Geez, guys, you're such noobs. ;p (Technically if you were desperate you could also give the opponent a HERO with something like Give and Take or Mystic Box and copy it with Neo-Spacian Dark Panther. Think of the totally super-sweet combo potential right there!11)
