How to get

Can this skill lower a monsters level to 0? Or would it only go to 1 and no lower?
I noticed that Level Reduction states Minimum 1, whereas this doesn't.
Use this with the 3 jins and arrival rival. Thank me later. :)
So I dueled a paradox brothers on PVP who had this ability, but when he used it, he had full LP and my LP was at 2000. Can some please explain to me why this ability is not working as described? I haven't unlocked it myself and it's real frustrating to lose because of an ability that's completely cheating the system

It fits the description
"This skill can be used to "Suijin, "Kazejin", and "Sanga of the Thunder," regardless of your remaining Life Points."
nop nop
We can use the effect only once per duel and can activate it without lose LP if you have Sanga, Kazeji,... If not you only can activate it if you have less than 1000LP

If you're not playing kazejin and co, there's no point using this skill and play cyber style instead. 3 levels down vs 3 free monsters. That's how broken cyber style is now.
Started a duel with paradox brothers. First turn of the duel he summoned a level 5 monster not using any skill at all without tributing. It was a normal monster with no effect. Then in the same turn he tributed that monster for horus. He had no spiel or trap cards activated and again used no skill. I read through the log multiple times trying to see if anything happened that would have allowed him to do this. There was nothing. Wtf? Maybe I'm just a noob and I'm just over looking some rule? Someone please explain this to me.

It's a skill, too:
the description seems inaccurate
This is broken. It does not apply to Sujin and other guardian anymore. It is not activated

Same here. Someone used this skill on their first turn. Full 4000 LP, and they summoned Suijin with no cost.

@Mango Joe: then read the description...
this page needs to be updated it says once per turn it is now once per duel, also overview has a typo i think it says great potential for potential for PvP Duels, someone must have been really sleepy

You don't lose any life points to use the effect anymore but your lp has to be 1000 or less so unless your opponent had more than 1000 lp when they used the effect its not bugged

I just got rekt Reply
Opponent life points 3500 (hadn't gained any LP in the duel).
My LP 2900 (hadn't gained any LP in the duel).
His/her field: One face down Gazelle King.
My field: Nothing.
S/he then activates 3 star demotion for no cost, summons Sanga and wins duel.
What's the drawback of this skill? Doesn't work like it's described on this page at all.
