Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Elemental HERO Neos Krieger


ATK/3,000 DEF/2,500

“Elemental HERO Neos” + “Yubel”
Must be Fusion Summoned. Before damage calculation, if this card battles an opponent’s monster: You can inflict damage to your opponent equal to that opponent’s monster’s ATK. If this face-up card you control is destroyed by battle, or leaves the field because of an opponent’s card effect: You can Special Summon 1 “Neos Wiseman” from your hand or Deck, ignoring its Summoning conditions. You can only use this effect of “Elemental HERO Neos Krieger” once per turn.

Elemental HERO Neos Krieger is a retrained version of Neos Wiseman. Elemental HERO Neos Krieger has a good design for modern Yu-Gi-Oh! Players can easily play this card. This monster does not have the limitations from its predecessor.

First Effect:

Elemental HERO Neos Krieger inflicts damage to your opponent equal to your opponent’s monster’s ATK in battle before damage calculation. Therefore, Elemental HERO Neos Krieger has the potential to inflict massive damage to an opponent. You have a great opportunity to gain momentum during a duel. You will inflict damage from this effect and the battle.

For example, Elemental HERO Neos Krieger inflicts 3,000 damage to an opponent after he destroys the Dark Magician. The first effect and the battle determine this amount. You inflict 2,500 damage from the effect and 500 damage from the battle for total of 3,000 damage.

Second Effect:

Elemental HERO Neos Krieger special summons Neo Wiseman by ignoring its summoning conditions when an opponent removes him from the field. You lose one monster, but you gain a new monster with the same effect. You have a new monster on the field to protect your life points and the new monster has a useful effect.

In addition, Elemental HERO Neos Krieger’s second effect is the easiest method to special summon Neo Wiseman. You do not need to summon Yubel to the field. You only need Yubel in your hand for the fusion of Elemental HERO Neos Krieger. Then, you may gain Neo Wiseman after Elemental HERO Neos Krieger’s removal from the field.

Furthermore, an opponent cannot easily dodge this effect. Destroying or banishing Elemental HERO Neos Krieger will trigger his second effect. Any method of removal will bring Neos Wiseman to the field.

Card Rating:

Overall, Elemental HERO Neos Krieger is a major upgrade from Neos Wiseman. He is a much easier card to summon because you only need the materials in your hand. That is the biggest difference between the two cards. Elemental HERO Neos Krieger has an amazing effect to inflict damage to an opponent. I recommend playing this card in a deck for Neos and Yubel.
