Okay, so we have Red Eyes Black Chick for Blue Eyes
Frankly, I think it's funny that this guy's stats
suck even more than REBC. Don't know why. This is
the first card released in America to have a YGO!
character embedded in it. It's a Warrior and LIGHT
and has 200 attack and gains from all of those
characteristics, and it special summons BEWD's.
The rather nice thing about these kind of effects is
that the monsters are easy to search out and take
care of the object in your hand by forcing your
opponent to take care of an object on the field. It
rather helps to turn a 200 into a 3000 without
wasting a normal summon that turn.
Personally, I like the 1900 tutor ritual monster for

I don't even know what I'm doing today. Kaibaman
goes in a BEWD or Kaiba themed deck. He's staple in
one and half-considerable for the other.
I can't give you a rating. I don't rate cards that
only go in one deck because any "rating" will be an
empty number. Most pointless review ever.
Oh, and it's obvious that we should review him on
President's Day. He seems the ideal choice. No more
Bush, no more Kerry, just a small piece of
cardboard. Our neighbors in the world will no longer
consider us to be morons, just severely silly and in
need of a good nap.
I'll take this opportunity to annoy all the readers
and use the word rentsy in the sentence.
Thought I wouldn't be rentsy enough to use the word
in a review, eh Kirk?
And, since I have absolutely nothing better to do...

So now you know. Tomorrow's review will be good. I
Kaibaman is to BEWD what Red-Eyes B. Chick is to
This all boils down to an exchange of hand advantage
and field presence.
You give up two cards from your hand (BEWD and
Kaibaman) to get Blue-Eyes onto the field in one
turn. 3000 attack isn't much to scoff at.
Sangan and Witch can both fetch this card (and with
the copy of the next banlist up on the message
boards saying that they'll be unbanned, this becomes
very important for this and all cards)...
But come on. 200 ATK? This thing is pretty useless
if you don't have the BEWD in hand -RIGHT THEN-.
Otherwise, you get a crappy set. Kaiser Sea Horse is
better in that department -- it takes an extra turn,
but at least you have a 1700 attacker in the
1.5/5 Traditional (BEWD here? HA!)
2.25/5 Advanced (I'd still play Kaiser too)
We open off the week with Kaibaman, the card that
really, really looks like Seto Kaiba in a chicken
suit. It’s basically Red-Eyes B. Chick, but for Blue
Eyes instead of Red Eyes. It’s LIGHT, like BEWD; and
it’s Level 3 so it gets under Gravity Bind and Level
Limit, but with only 200 ATK, you probably won’t be
attacking with this (oddly enough though, I had an
opponent Creature Swap this guy to me in a duel
yesterday and I did attack him directly twice).
Summon Kaibaman, sacrifice him, summon Blue-Eyes –
all in one turn. There’s not much more to it than
that; you should run this in your BEWD Deck without
a doubt; he’ll get Blue-Eyes out quickly, and then
you can use those lovely cards like Burst Stream of
Destruction without worrying about those two
sacrifices you’d normally have to make for the
In any other Deck, Kaibaman is pretty useless.
Though he is LIGHT, and a Warrior…
Welcome to WC5 Week! This week we’ll be reviewing
the three cards from the new GBA game, as well as
some cards associated with them. Our first card this
week is Kaibaman, the Blue-Eyes version of Red-Eyes
If you didn’t like Red-Eyes B. Chick because of its
terrible stats then I’m afraid you really aren’t
going to like Kaibaman. With 200 ATK Kaibaman can
destroy almost nothing. It can of course kill
Scapegoat, but what monster can’t? Kaibaman is a
Warrior though allowing you to search for him in a
few ways. Unfortunately though Blue-Eyes White
Dragon Decks don’t use a lot of (if any) Warriors,
giving them no reasons to use a card like
Reinforcement of the Army. So in the only Deck that
you would use Kaibaman in, you’ll have few methods
of searching for him.
As you might have guessed by now, Kaibaman’s effect
only benefits Blue-Eyes White Dragon users. By
Tributing Kaibaman, you can Special Summon a
Blue-Eyes White Dragon from your hand. This effect’s
main use is that it allows you to summon BEWD on
your first turn, forcing your opponent to contend
with a 3000 ATK monster very early in the game. The
only thing I have against this effect is the monster
it comes with. When compared to other monsters that
assist in summoning BEWD, Kaibaman comes in dead
Kaiser Sea Horse, Paladin of White Dragon, and even
Lord of D. are all better monsters and allow you to
summon the “virtually invincible” Dragon.
Sure they aren’t as fast as Kaibaman, but they’ll be
staying on the field longer.
Advanced (BEWD Deck): 2.5/5. Good effect; terrible
Traditional (BEWD Deck): 2.5/5. Good effect;
Overall (BEWD Deck): 2.5/5.
Art: 4/5. It reminds me of some anime character but
I’m not sure whom…
Stats :Kaibaman is a Level 3 Light/Warrior. So
far, so good: Level 3 means that he can both be
dropped into play as your Normal Summon and that
he can slip under Level Limit-Area B and
Gravity Bind. Light means he can be
Chaos food, and has some actual Attribute
support besides that. Warrior is still one of
the best supported Types in the game. Finally,
we see an ATK of… 200. Ouch. Well, at least it
means he can be searched and summoned via an
effect like Shining Angel’s. We also
have a rather puny DEF of 700. Let’s see if the
effect is any good.
The effect is simple: Tribute this monster to
Special Summon a Blue-Eyes White Dragon
from your hand to the field. This isn’t too
bad, but it’s far from game breaking on its own,
given that BEWD needs to be in your hand,
so searching it out can be rather tricky.
Here’s what gives this card enough of a boost to
make it something to consider for at least
BEWD decks. You can get it out via
Shining Angel so that you can both Normal
Summon another Monster and Tribute it for its
effect for a nice, beefy BEWD… or you
could also use Reinforcements of the Army.
The real trick is getting BEWD into your
hand. If you run three in a roughly 40 card
deck, you stand a decent chance of doing just
1.5/5-It can be Chaos Food. Sadly, that’s about
its best use here. A BEWD themed deck or
a Light/Warrior deck with a little BEWD
TecH is just too weak.
3.5/5-This score is specifically for a BEWD
utilizing deck. Practically turning BEWD
into a no Tribute Monster (meaning you use your
Normal Summon then the effect to drop it into
play easy) is a very nice trick. It’s still of
limited use, since on its own, Kaibaman
is rather puny. I suppose it is nice to have
something that can sneak under most stall
cards. Consider using one or two in your deck
or at least side board.
1/5-It’s a promo. Now, even if it is reprinted
in a set, it’s still going to be just another
is an interesting card. It’s got a very
specific use, but it’s pretty good at what it
does: making Blue-Eyes White Dragon a
little easier to get into play. If it fetched
BEWD from the deck or hand, it’d probably
be a staple for such decks. As is, it’s
something to strongly consider.
