Turbo Rocket is specifically required to Synchro Summon Turbo Cannon, and Turbo Rocket is Level 2 Machine and Tuner-type monster, and Turbo Cannon is only a Level 3 Synchro monster, so you do the math there.
Turbo Cannon can destroy one face-up monster and inflict damage to its controller equal to half it's attack.

It's not as faulty as Turbo Rocket, but at the same time, the not being destroyed by Battle ability would be really nice to have...Turbo Cannon could be a lot of fun, and could win you a game if used at the right time, but it's probably most fun for casual play only.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
Art: 4/5 Sort of looks like something that might be in Toy Story
General Zorpa Turbo Cannon

This is the smallest Synchro in the game and it is a doozy. He has 0ATK and 0 DEF on a level 3 Fire Machine and you have to use Turbo Rocket to Synchro it up. The stats are of course abysmal, but that didn't stop Thousand Eyes Restrict to be one of the top cards of all time.

The effect is that you can destroy a monster once per turn and inflict damage to the owner equal to half of that monsters ATK. This is a kind of Ring of Destruction effect, and especially used against a deck like Gladiator Beasts can be extremely effective. However, it has no way to capitalize on this effect, so you will be forced to protect it or face massive repercussions.

The fact that you do have to defend it rather vigorously is not what I want in a card. There are better spells and traps that kill things without having to be Synchro Summoned. It is not a bad card, just that the game doe snot reward those who slow roll the game right now.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-2/5

Turbo Cannon ...

I ALMOST like this little guy ... First off - he gets the award for the lowest level Synchro Monster available ... (that i know of) ... but then he loses points for having one of those "I can only be Synchro'd with 1 stinkin Tuner" stipulations ...
The simplicity of his effect - destroy any 1 monster on the field and inflict damage to its owner equal to half of its ATK - is good stuff. But then with no ATK of his very own, he really only functions best when your opponent is basically ALREADY out-gunning u ... A position u never actually want to be in. And then if u succeed in destroying their monster, u have to have a serious way of protecting him afterwards, or he's gonna be run over like CRAZY come next turn ... Hell, even Treeborn Frog could do it.

Meh ... this one is almost a toss-up ... I like what he does, but I just cant get past the specific tuner need and zero ATK/DEF ... I might have been able to live with one or the other ... but not both. He falls JUST short of worthwhile.

Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced: 2.5/5

N o V a
Almost done with the week, its Thursday! And today we're looking at the first ever level 3 Synchro monster. Turbo Cannon is one of Yusei's cards that he used in the anime to get past one of the "Dark Signers" by tuning Turbo Rocket and Turbo Booster if memory serves. It may have no attack and defense, but its got one heck of a good effect. Once a turn it can destroy a face-up monster to inflict damage to its controller equal to half its attack. Sure once a turn its not so harmless, but in a lot of those stalling burn decks, this may help speed up the burn process. This cards also very easy to summon if you do as Yusei did to get it out. Since you would normal summon Turbo Rocket, you can Special Summon Turbo Booster from your hand with no cost. Being easy to summon and with the ability to do some decent damage, its a pretty good card. Only drawback I'd say is having to use Turbo Rocket to summon it, but then again I think its effect is worth it, but only in its own deck.

Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced: 2/5
