  • Good stats.
  • Can negate opponent’s Spell/Trap cards.
  • Self protection effect.


  • Self Protection effect requires you to destroy another Six Samurai monster.
  • Semi-specific Synchro materials.


  • Having both Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En and Great Shogun Shien on the field at the same time does not mean you lock your opponent out of activating Spell/Trap cards. Spell/Trap cards negated by Shi En do not count towards the one activation Great Shogun Shien allows.


Normal Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Kageki and use his effect to Special Summon Kagemusha of the Six Samurai or Secret Six Samurai - Genba and use them to make Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En.

You can Normal Summon Secret Six Samurai - Fuma and then Special Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan and use both monsters to Synchro Summon Shi En.


You can only revive Shi En if he was Synchro Summoned properly first. Use Cunning of the Six Samurai to send a Six Samurai monster on your field and revive Shi En.

You can revive Shi En with Return of the Six Samurai. And instead of destroying Shi En during the End Phase, you can use his protection effect to destroy another Six Samurai monster you control instead.

There's a french card that has the same effect as him, but would require a lot of UR synchros to be summoned (consistently)

It is a fleure card which can be opened on rose dragon pack. It can negate too but only during YOUR turn, six sams can negate on EITHER player's turn.

So it's not the same, but actually far more terrible.
It's only obvious you don't look for Shi En in the box if you want to build Samurais; you look for Kizan instead and reset the box immediately after you get him.
Well hopefully Konami comes to their senses after the World and ends this deck. Turn #1 "No you don't get to play traps/spells" isn't fun, especially since that's half the game. I wouldn't be upset to see this deck get nerfed the way Cyber Angels got nerfed; losing everything they love and hold dear, especially since Synchro Samurai and old fashion Cyber Angels are pretty similar in terms of playstyle

Turn 2

"My monster effect activate"

Boom my combo spell /
The level 6 or lower monster mustn't have the ability to negate both spell & trap cards if they doesn't have a second negative ability to balance them

It is only 2500 attack monster

If there is no Dual wield or Enishi on the field then this is GG

Only? Five star monster with 2500 is really high enough
Con? He is easily syncro in one turn.

He can negate spell/trap once pee turn. This is too much
If you negate shi en with shadow-imprisoning mirror (before their summoned), do you negate the effect that negates

Not gonna play it to counter Shi En.
I'll fight him other way lol
f**king another annoying card. Why he can activate his effect even in my turn.
Damn rigged Card-packs.
Started playing and buyed "normal" Six-Samurai-packs... This was released and 192 Boosters later still no Shien :(
This guy is the reason why I run multiple copies of Void Trap Holes and Floodgates.

He's the latest and biggest boy on the block.
This card should be limited, along with Enishi.

No? The bigger problem is the cards that turbo it out

It doesn't matter. It should be limited, too. Only one of each per deck.

The problem isn't Shi En, its how easy it is to get it in play on turn 1 or 2, which is why a lot of people hate this card. If Konami ever does decide to nerf stuff, its probably going to be either Enishi or the main Synchro monster.

they put dojo to 2 and thats it
May as well call this card "Win Button"

That's pretty much what this thing is 99% of the time.
Another broken card after silent magician.

Spellbook isn’t even near broken. It’s good but there were other decks at that time that competes well against each other.

With full power six sams, it’s like cyber angels. You either play the deck, if you’re playing anything else you’re gonna get 🔥ed in the 🔥 real hard.

Agreed. 2.5k not needed. >3k better.
Yeah, Dyna's attack lock isn't that OP anymore. But probably put Wiz to 1 in exchang...
At least he might be coming with REDMD as well. That one can still be meta, despite the nerf.
