Dark Necrofear

Dark Necrofear
Monster TypeFiend
Card typeEffect
Card Effect TypeSummoning condition / Trigger Effect


Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 3 Fiend-Type monsters from your Graveyard. During the End Phase, if this card is in the Graveyard because it was destroyed by an opponent's card this turn (by battle or card effect) and sent to your Graveyard while it was a Monster Card under your control: Target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; equip this card to that target. While this card is equipped to a monster by this effect, take control of that monster.

  • Special summon instead of normal summon
  • High attack and very high defense.
  • Can take control of your opponent's monster when destroyed by either battle or card effects.


  • Can only be special summoned
  • Requires banishing 3 Fiend-Type monsters
  • Uses a spell/trap slot when the effect activates


You can special summon your banished monster by using Escape from the Dark Dimension or return them back to your graveyard using Doomsday Horror.

Sending fiends to graveyard

Send fiend type monsters to the graveyard to speed up the summoning of Dark Necrofear.

  • Sphere Kuriboh has great synergy because it helps defend against an attack while also adding fuel to your graveyard.
  • Fiend Griefing sends fiends to your graveyard and can be used to disrupt effects that involve a card in your opponent's graveyard.
  • Trance Archfiend gains 500 attack in exchange for sending a fiend type monster from your hand to the grave, and can also be used to recover a fiend removed by the summoning of Dark Necrofear.



Hot New Top
This fiend deck got me to Platinum, but barely. It includes a lot of utility fiends like Kuriboh and Possessed Dark Soul that counter a lot of the meta decks while sending a lot of fiends to the graveyard. It's a really fun deck to play.

Winged Minion is great when you have tempo or a way to prevent the opponent from doing anything for a turn. However, it is super bad when playing from behind and unfortunately in YuGiOh just going second can be enough to force you to play from behind.

what is the 1st card in the 2nd row? The 4-Level Dark Fiend Rare card?

it is shadowslayer, it can attack your opponent directly if all of their monsters are in defense mode, its attack is 1400 a
and its defense is 200 so if you pair it with equip cards it can 🔥 your opponent in 2 shots
why they give 2 relinquished but 1 necrofear.? This card is useless at least they give us 2. and the should ban relinquished.

Disappointing the event didnt even allow the chance to win another, either by the ridiculous 4mill or smashing special lvl 50.

I think they should limit relinquished and Sergeant electro to 1 and allow us to have another necroface and barrel dragon.

I meant necrofear.
Anyone have an idea what would happen if you've already unlocked Yami Bakura from Destiny Board and did the event again? Would you get another Necrofear?

No, you moron. You can only unlock a character once. If you already unlocked bakura from the event, it will skip over him as an unlockable.

Thanks. My OTK Necrofear deck can only get me as high as to Gold Rank 5 and I just needed another Necrofear to complete it.

Possibly could give another necrofear like last event of pegasus for the third copy of relinquished ( points example 1,000,000)

well yes event reward hahaha
Am I the only one who is saying two things
1. I want more than 1 of these.
2. How do I unlock destiny board ability.
3. Sky scourge enrise and dark necromancer combo deck.

I too wish you could get more than 1. I mean, look at Bakura's skills:

Compensation: useless for Dark Necrofear since there's only 1

Tether of Defeat: useless for Dark Necrofear since there's only 1, and considering its slowness and activation requirement, I see it useless for decking the opponent out as well

Destiny Board: useless since there's only 1 Dark Necrofear

And finally Fiend Farewell (couldn't add to the previous post): once again useless for Dark Necrofear due to there being only 1...

Sure, you can use the abilities for other reasons (besides Destiny Board which remains useless), but come on! It's Bakura!

Yeah, until someone gets SM Level 8 into the field before you can do anything about it. 3500 ATK + unaffected by opponent's Spells can be really scary.
Any ideas on how to improve this deck?

If you are running Dark Necrofear, your Deck shouldn't have any other monsters but Fiends (unless you run Fiend/Fairys). Just saying.

What I am running currently. It's low level and incomplete I plan to add the second pump fiend when I unlock it with draw sense dark or destiny board but it seems solid so far

GO for 20 cards only
<< Anonymous(Trust_luck)
nice deck m8 but try at least 21 cards in it, and if you can remove these monsters with level 4 and change for level 3.

20 cards is better mate. and wtf is that a prismatic storm? ur so lucky
Necrofear turbo may be possible, with Fiend Farewell + Doomdog Orthros and that new trap that sends one fiend card to graveyard, it is possible.

BUT the question is, is it worth it to make a deck that summons Necrofear ASAP? Yeah it takes control once it got destroyed but your opponent must have a mon on the field. So if your opponent has no monsters (common with OtC scenario or Yomi Ship), this card is useless.

I'd say this card is better as a backup plan than being summoned ASAP

True that and if you don't build around necrofear as your ace card then it becomes hard to summon. So it's kind of a lose, lose.

It's not useless. Even if your opponent has no monsters, that's a direct hit of 2200

Anybody know how to counter this card?

Exile of the Wicked to destroy it. It's a band-aid fix because you'll need to deal with it's effect afterward. can't really think of ways stopping its summon though.
