I want to try this card in crawlers because of how it can search out most of the archetype, but its super expensive to pull through Blazing Rose 3 times
Will this card ever come back?

The Japanese name? "G" stands for "Goki", the Japanese word for roach.
Does anyone knows what the "C" is supposed to stand for on this and Confronting the "C"?

A little bit of trivia: they are not the only "C" Insect-Type monsters in Yugioh, and among the ones we don't have yet, one is actually a meta card, as in, everyone in OCG/TCG used it.
So basically right now it can only respond to Mask Change and the occasional Poly?

Since Rank-Up-Magic cards are still far away, and nobody plays Ritual anymore....

You forgot Ancient Rules, Destruction Swordsman Fusion, Silver's Cry and Ties of the Brethren.

It's still pretty bad though

Relying on your opponent to do a thing is gross

Quite a number of meta cards in OCG/TCG actually relies on opponent doing a thing lol.

Loli handtraps, Kaiju, Maxx "C", PSY-Frames.....heck even Cyber Dragon, the card everyone wants to have in DL, relies on the opponent having already summoned a monster if you want to SS Cyber Dragon.

Don't forget Trickstar.

Although granted, Trickstar has a Trao card that forces the opponent to make a certain action. However, on their own, the monsters completely relies on the opponent making an action in order for their effect to activate.
