Counter Black Rose Dragon, Superheavy Samurai ogre shutendoji, Fortune Fairy monsters, Gladiator Beast monsters, Fur Hire high-level monsters, Crystron synchro monsters and Night's End Sorcerer. It also can counter amulet dragon, quintet magician, fire king high avatar garunix and sacred phoenix of nepthys but they have floating effects and one of them cannot be destroyed by card effects.

The move that Irou performed here is an actual swordplay move, called "tsubame gaeshi", a move inspired by how swallows can quickly turn its tail (and its direction) mid-flight.
(It's also the name of a judo move, but the judo move itself is inspired by the sword move, so.....)

And the reason why it's Irou in the artwork, is because the move is created by none other than the legendary real-life samurai Sasaki KojIROU.

Pokemon fans might know the move Tsubame gaeshi as the signature move of Swellow. Yes, it's the Japanese name for the move Aerial Ace.

Excellent trivia.

I'll also add that "tsubame gaeshi" literally means "turning swallow".

Tsubame Gaeshi is also the OCG name for this card. "Swallow Flip" is just a slightly less literal translation.

It's actually better. Effects activated from special summon are more common than from normal summon

Doesn't stop it being a mostly worse Traptrix Trap Hole Nightmare, though.
