The Fiend Megacyber is one of those monsters that
fell just short of actually being playable.
A 2200 ATK Special Summon isn't bad, but if your
opponent has two more monsters on the field than
you, I'd rather answer back with a spell or trap
rather than trying to get rid of all the monsters
(except maybe when it comes to Asura Priest
attacking Scapegoats, preferably with Big Bang Shot
equipped at the time.)
This card gets a 1/5, as it falls into my
ever-popular "we already have something that does it
better" category. In this case, we got it from the
pre-releases last weekend for Cybernetic Revolution,
and its name is Cyber Dragon.
Cyber Dragon has just slightly less ATK (2100), is a
free summon even if your opponent only has one
monster out, as long as you don't have a monster out
at all, and best of all -- it's a 5-star Light
(helping not only cookie-cutter BLS-abuser decks,
but the PERFECT combo with Metamorphosis for a Dark
Balter the Terrible.)
Sorry, but although this is underrated Tribute week,
I think this card deserves its spot in the jank
The Fiend Megacyber was released a while ago and has
never been that popular. Being DARK and a Warrior,
he fits in nicely with a bunch of decks, and 2200
ATK is certainly respectable, though perhaps not for
a Level 6.
His effect is that you can summon him if your
opponent has at least two monsters on the field more
than you do. When he was first released, an
opponent’s field being full of monsters usually
meant he was pounding you with Jinzo and perhaps
some other high attackers, meaning a 2200 wouldn’t
Now, however, Scapegoat is everywhere. An opposing
field full of Sheep Tokens makes it so that
summoning The Fiend Megacyber without tribute is
much easier – and a bit more useful.
Of course, 2200 ATK still isn’t a lot. In fact,
Giant Orc or Goblin Attack Force would probably be
better choices than The Fiend Megacyber, simply
because, well, they don’t require any tributes.
OVERALL RATING: 2.8/5
Fiend Megacyber COTD
It's funny that we're reviewing this card. It's like
looking at Cyber Dragon and imaging if there was a
worse version of the card. And thus came Fiend
It basically says "Summon this 2200 stick if you're
in one of the following situations:
1.) The opponent has more Scapegoat tokens than you.
2.) You're getting your ass kicked by a lot of
monsters, you suck; no wonder you are using this
Just use Cyber Dragon if anything =/.
Hello to a week of the Underrated Tribute Monsters!
Today's card is The Fiend Megacyber, a card that has
increased uses with the newer of the dominant
There's nothing fancy about TFM; 2200 ATK isn't
great for a monster of his Level, though it isn't
something to be ashamed of. It's a Warrior, [insert
usual Warrior comments here], and that's about it.
Its effect however makes its ignorable-worthy stats
less worthy of said ignorableness. When your
opponent has two or more monsters on the field than
you, you can Special Summon TFM from your hand.
Now the uses of a card as old as TFM should be
obvious to most people, but I'll spell it out
anyway: TFM's effect will only become useful when a)
you're losing, or b) your opponent has used
Scapegoat. Scapegoat is the most likely reason you'd
use TFM's effect these days as it's uncommon you'll
find yourself in a situation in which your opponent
outnumbers you in monsters by such a large amount.
But when either situation occurs, you'll be happy
you had TFM.
The Special Summon of a 2200 ATK monster has
numerous benefits, the most basic of which is
getting to school the opponent's underlings with a
2200 ATK monster. And considering the standard CC
only uses two monsters that can exceed that ATK, TFM
will likely be able to do some major damage to the
opponent for the few turns it can stay on the field.
Of course, TFM will do little to solve your
Scapegoat problems, but it may be of some slight use
when your eventually opponent puts their Scapegoats
The second in command of basic uses is that TFM
becomes Special Summoned, allowing you to still
conduct a Normal Summon during the turn. What does
this allow? Well, nothing in particular if you used
the effect when you were losing, as it indicates
that you were unable to summon monsters to defend
yourself. But if you summoned TFM after a Scapegoat,
you'll be able to summon an Asura Priest as well. AP
will get rid of the Scapegoats, and TFM can attack
the opponent directly taking ╝th of their Life
Points in the process.
Overall, TFM is a peculiar monster that has obtained
renewed uses with Scapegoat's skyrocket in
popularity. It is by no means the answer to the
opponent's bah bah black sheep, but it may prove
particularly useful in a Deck meant to counter Goat
Advanced: 3.5/5. It's inevitable that your opponent
will use a Scapegoat, at which point TFM can work
Traditional: 2/5. As I've said many times, I have no
idea what Traditional is like today…
Art: 4/5. I'm not seeing much of his supposed
cybernetic or fiendish qualifications…
Welcome to a fresh week of cards and this week is
what I'd like to call "Underrated and/or Ignored
Tribute monster week!" I tried to choose cards for
this week that haven't been reviewed. I chose this
week because no one likes tribute monsters for the
most part unless they have an EXCELLENT effect (eg
On the note of the anime, Espa Roba used today's
card against Joey in Espa Roba, the ESP Duelist Part
Today brings us The Fiend Megacyber. The Fiend isn't
very strong for a Level 6 monster at 2200 attack and
his defense is equally low at 1200.
He is however DARK which makes him Chaos friendly
and he is also a Warrior.
Then his effect: If your opponent has 2 or more
monsters on the field than you, you may Special
Summon this 2200 attack monster. It could help but
it isn't really going to if your opponents two
monsters already happen to be stronger than the
If you want to try one out in your Chaos/Warrior
deck, go ahead, you might be surprised. Warriors
don't use tributes generally, but he may not be a

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
is only in the interest of being as consistent as
possible with my reviews that I am bothering with
this week. =\
Fiend Megacyber has a few cool things. First off,
he’s a Warrior, despite what his name says, so
there’s that to factor in. Second off, he’s 2200.
2200 is strong, but sucks considering his level.
But he Special Summons himself. That in and of
itself puts him in a bit of a good position. But
then again, look at it like this. In order for you
to be able to summon it, thus filling up your own
field and being horribly vulnerable to a Lightning
Vortex or Torrential Tribute, you need to be behind
or looking at a field full of Goats, which will then
make you pretty damn sure retribution will come
along after the Goats.
Yeah, I’m not going to bother. It’s cool, but that’s
