1 "Buster Blader" + 1 Dragon-Type monster
Must be Fusion Summoned and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. This card cannot attack directly. This card gains 1000 ATK and DEF for each Dragon-Type monster your opponent controls or is in their Graveyard. Change all Dragon-Type monsters your opponent controls to Defense Position, also Dragon-Type monsters in your opponent's possession cannot activate their effects. If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent.

  • Good attack and defense, and can be increased higher if your opponent uses Dragon-type monsters.
  • Very strong against Dragon decks since it will negate their effects, and switches them to defense position.
  • Deals piercing damage when attacking defense position monsters.
  • Fusion summoning this card can be easy if you use fusion substitute monster, since you can use any other dragon type monster as the other material.


  • Can't attack directly.
  • If you are using a dragon deck, and your opponent takes control of this card (through cards like Enemy Controller), it can potentially one shot you if you don't have any protection.
  • If your opponent does not use any Dragon-type monsters, it is just a high attack monster that can pierce defense position monsters, but can't attack directly.


Fusion substitutes

Without needing to bring Buster Blader, you can use any Dragon-type monsters to fuse into the Dragon Destroyer. This can make it more versatile and much easier to summon. Red-Eyes B. Dragon now can be used to fusion summon into 3 different monsters, which can make it versatile, especially since Red-Eyes has its own supports as well.

Like this card would even be good...

It is hard to summon (3 cards to get it) and doesn't even have protection from spells or traps.

Of course you’d use the liar card. Fine

Blue Dragon Summoner 3x
Kaibaman 3x
King of the Swamp 1x
The Earth Hex-Sealed Fusion 2x
Dark Magician 1x
Fusion Gate 1x
Luninous Spark 1x
Polymerization 3x
E-Con 3x
Champion’s Vigilance 1x

Everyone is saying RIP BEWD while I’m sitting here with my BEUD deck that runs this card also. Sometimes you have to turn a deck’s weakness into its strength.
Weakness of REBD & BEWD deck for sure

This is a factual statement. I literally own with this combo

I find that combo rather slow at times unless you can search the cards. I typically run all my dragon decks with BB because he just slips in there easily
What "This card cannot attack directly." means exactly ?

Faggot being mean to a post from like months ago. How noob are you?
Why I can't destroy this with Devine Wrath? Although it's effect is activated when I summon a dragon monster and it's changed to defense position.

cuz his efect just resolves is not an activation

Same reason you can't activate Divine Wrath in response to a monster's piercing damage.

Cuz it's a continuous effect. Divine Wrath can only negate effects at the point of activation. Continuous effects just happen automatically without activation. Activation would be Dark Paladin's effect that negates spell cards.

Great explanation above. Another tip for you: when monster effect activation takes place, you will see huge portrait of monster popping on screen.
played against a Seto running dragons, who started his turn owning the field with a 3k dragon and another 4* dragon vs my 1 dragon. He summons darkflare dragon, uses his effect to drop Kidmodo to his graveyard, and summons a Blue 3 high atk dragons..but can't attack that turn.

I have 1 card in my hand (buster bladder), my next draw is over. The dragon destroyer arrived on field with over 7k attack..

I dueled a similar person who used a Dragon deck while I was running a basic Paladin/BB fusion deck and I won in two turns with a first turn Buster Blader fusion
Why can't I fusion summon this card with "1 buster blader + 1 fusion substitute monster"? Though I can do the opposite thing (1 dragon + 1 fusion substitute)!

Am I missing something here?!

More than likely because the fusion sub has a specific card they're subbing for (buster blader) when you have a dragon in your hand whereas having bb in your hand, the sub monster has no specific card to sub for this not becoming a dragon type

I thought it was a bug or something. Thanks for replying.

I think you are using the other 'Buster Blader, the Destruction Swordmaster' card which only 'buster blader' when it is on the field
<< Anonymous(VSS9)

the other person already replied with the correct answer. You can't use fusion substitutes to substitute for non-specific materials. So you can't substitute for "1 Dragon type monster" you can only sub for "Buster Blader."
Can this guy be summoned with buster blader + fusion substitute monster?

No, but if you have a "Dragon Type Monster" in your hand/field you can use a substitute for "Buster Blader".
