Five Headed Dragon
This is the monster Dragons Mirror has been waiting
for. 5000 attack and defense is massive. His effect
is pointless but his stats definitely make up for
that. If you run dragons then this is the reason you
Being a fusion he does not actually cost us
Dragons Mirror grants us this destructive monsters
for 1 card, thus if used correctly he will pay for
himself. Take that Jinzo:)
Sadly, the card isn't actually any good. This is
true to the spirit of Yu-Gi-Oh in that this is
virtually impossible to summon, when it hits the
field it gives one an excuse for a lengthy speech
about one's impending doom, but is in fact weak
enough that a simple trap can stop it (with
associated gloating speech and triumphant music).
However, in real life, this is far too impractical
to use. Merely admire it.
Anime note: This
monster was seen in Merger of the Big 5 Part III.
Well, we start off this new week with quite a
powerful card, and a long awaited one. I am of
course referrring to, Five Headed Dragon.
This is an incredibly powerful Fusion monster with
5000 attack points (and defense points). So, I am
here to say, if you get this card, do NOT go
splashing it into your Fusion deck. At least read
the card first, ok?
Now, let's look at all that this card has going for
it. First, Five Headed Dragon can only be destroyed
by a monster of the Light attribute. Or, of course,
by a magic or trap card or monster effect, but the
fact that it can only be destroyed by one attribute
is awesome...or is it?
Since it can ONLY be destroyed by a monster of the
Light attribute and he boasts 5000 attack points,
odds are you won't be attacking him with anything.
You more than likely will be using a magic, trap, or
Furthermore, you need to fuse FIVE Dragons to make
Five Headed Dragon (ironic, hmm?) Granted, it can be
any five Dragons, which gives him a lot of
versatility, but wow. It's also quite good that are
friend doesn't take battle damage, but again...he
does have 5000 attack points!
So, you really don't need to waste your time
attacking or destroying a monster that isn't even
going to hurt your opponent's lifepoints. If you run
a hardcore Dragon deck, and are bold enough to try
this, go for it.
Explanation: Yes, Five Headed Dragon IS a Fusion,
but a very difficult one to play, and really has no
place out of the Dragon deck, if at all.

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
is a Monster Card well known to fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh
manga and animé. It is a Fusion, so it does
very little harm to keep it in your Fusion deck
(unless Memory Crusher is huge in your
area). The text of the card indicates it can
only be Special Summoned via a Fusion Summon, so
shortcuts like Metamorphosis or
Cyberstein are out. The effect also
explains what the Fusion components are, since
they aren’t listed above the rest of the effect
text in quotes as they normally would be.
Instead, the first line says tells us that it’s
any five Dragon-Type monsters. This means that
Five-Headed Dragon requires a six card
investment if Fusion summoned via
Polymerization. Obviously that would
require more or less an automatic win to be
worth playing, and that isn’t the rest of the
effect, so at first glance it wouldn’t be worth
it. Fortunately, this is Dragon itself, and
thus Dragon’s Mirror becomes an option.
Well, unless the first sentence isn’t considered
“listing”, in which case disregard the rest of
this review and just understand it’s a one out
of five. Assuming I am correct, though, and
Dragon’s Mirror becomes a staple (though
probably at a single copy and with this in the
Fusion deck) for Dragon decks. You can then
exchange any five Dragons from the Graveyard in
exchange for a fatty with 5000 ATK and DEF
points. I mean, this Monster is unsurpassed in
terms of printed ATK/DEF scores and as long as
it gets one good swing in, it’s worth a Spell
and removing those Monsters from the Graveyard.
Dragons actually have a good Normal Spell for
S/T Removal, and almost any normally played
Monster in ATK position won’t be able to soak at
least a good hunk of the damage, so then it
becomes well worth it. Combined with Return
from the Different Dimension and you should
be able to swing for an obscene amount of damage
from almost “no where”.
As for the rest of Five-Headed Dragon,
being a Dark-Type is okay (it is big enough to
fuel Deck Devastation Virus), and being
immune to Battle Damage (that is done to itself
– spillover damage would still slam your LP)
unless its from Light Monsters means little
since so few Monsters will be big enough to
destroy it in Battle and most people would just
use an effect of some sort anyway.
Fusions are often almost silly to score since
they have almost no drawback to run, but in this
case the scores really are more a reflection of
how such a deck would fair.
(for a Dragon deck using Dragon’s Mirror)
This is the Fact Man (Bhret) and for my first COTD
ever, I will be reviewing the Fusion monster, Five
God Dra.. Sorry, Five Headed Dragon.
This is a great monster in spite of its' strict
summoning requirements and one which I personally
This card is the only reason why I purchased more
than one dinosaur structure deck.
Let's get to the review; it's going to be a long
Much like the next strongest monster out there, Blue
Eyes Ultimate Dragon, 5 Headed Dragon is a twelve
star fusion monster and a Dragon. At 5000 Attack and
5000 Defense this card has the highest listed stats
of any monster, and in the right deck is a force to
be reckoned with. It is dark monster, but this does
not really matter any more now that chaos is dead.
1. This card does not take any Battle Damage and
cannot be destroyed by battle with an EARTH, WATER,
FIRE, WIND, or DARK monster. (Battle Damage is still
inflicted to players.)
This is really nice because it laughs at Chimeratech
(Dark), and can only be destroyed by a Dragon Master
Knight or more realistically a pumped up Blue Eyes
Ultimate, Cyber-Twin, or Cyber-End Dragon. However,
no one is going to try to kill it in battle anyway
when it is so easy to get rid of monsters from the
field with card effects like; Smashing Ground,
Exiled Force, and Zaborg.
2. The fusion material monsters for this card are
any five Dragon-Type monsters.
This is another great effect for you can use any 5
dragons. However, you can not use substitutes unless
they have been changed into dragons (DNA Surgery).
3. This monster cannot be Special Summoned except by
You can not summon 5 Headed Dragon EXCEPT BY FUSION
SUMMON even after it has been fusion summoned
This means you can not use the following cards to
summon this card; Cyber-Stein, Summoner of
Illusions, Dark Hex-Sealed Fusion, Premature Burial,
Call of the Haunted, Instant Fusion, Return from
Different Dimension, Dimension Fusion, Re-Fusion, or
Even with this effect it is worth playing in a
So how can you get this sucker out?
1. Polymerization[NORMAL]/Fusion Gate[FIELD]
I do not recommend these methods, for you must use
too many resources; Poly/Gate for start, plus 5
dragons, either from the hand or field. Of course,
you can use DNA Surgery to change your goats to
Dragons, but this saves only 1 or 2 cards from the
combo plus you have to wait for a trap that is prone
2. Future Fusion[CONTINUOUS]
With this card you dump 5 Dragons (no Substitutes)
directly from your deck to the graveyard, and on
your second standby phase you Special summon the 5
Headed Dragon to the field (This Special Summon is
treated as a Fusion Summon).
This is a better choice, for it only uses resources
from the deck and does not deplete your hand or
Of course, it must remain on the field and the
monster will be destroyed if it is removed from the
field, so it is always prone to S/T removal.
I suggest you dump Horus Level 6, Kaiser Glider,
Mirage Dragon, Horus Level 8, Divine Dragon
Ragnarock, White Horn Dragon (New McDonald's Promo),
or any big beat-stick like Blue Eyes White Dragon,
or Red Eyes Black Dragon. Do not use Twin-Headed
Behemoth his effect is too good to waste.
Even if it is destroyed and you never get 5 Headed
Dragon out, it still thins the deck and primes your
graveyard for cards like Premature Burial, Soul
Resurrection, Call of the Haunted, Level Modulation,
and Dragon Mirror, which is the next, and best way
to get this beast of a Dragon onto the field.>
3. Dragon Mirror [NORMAL SPELL]
Remove from play, from your side of the field or
your Graveyard, Fusion Material Monsters that are
listed on a Dragon-Type Fusion Monster Card, and
Special Summon that Fusion Monster from your Fusion
Deck. (This Special Summon is treated as a Fusion
So, if you have any combination of 5 dragons in your
graveyard or on the field thanks to Future Fusion,
Graceful, or whatever, then you can surprise your
opponent with 5 Headed Dragon and you still have a
normal summon for that turn too.
Here are some cards that will help keep him alive:
Lord of D., not a dragon; King Dragun, get him out
with Dragon Mirror or Dark Hex-Seal; Horus Level 8;
Royal Decree; My Body as a Shield; Solemn Judgment,
or even De Fusion, if you got him out with Future
Even after it is dead, it can still help power up
Buster Blader or Dark Paladin, be fuel for Dragon
Mirror, or be equipped to a Cyber Dark Dragon in
some kind of "Machine/Dragon" deck for some major
Being a Nomi fusion monster does not make this card
unplayable, for it has a powerful effect and several
feasible ways to "Fusion Summon" it. This
combination of killer effects and strict summoning
requirements creates a well-balanced monster that
will make a nice edition to a well constructed
Dragon deck that includes cards like Future Fusion,
and Dragon Mirror.
5 Headed Dragon is a welcome addition to the Dragon
Family, and may help Dragon decks finally compete
with tier 1 decks.
