Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu, another Earthbound monster we take a look at, and this one is quite the better monster compared to the one we looked at last week. Here we have a Level 10, Dark attributed, Fiend type monster with 3000 attack (not terrible) and 2500 defense
(meh.)

As you may have heard before, there can only be one face-up "Earthbound Immortal" on the Field, controlled by you OR your opponent, and there must be a face-up Field Magic Card on the Field, or this card is destroyed (which is another fairly big downside...)

This is the only monster your opponent can attack, and it can attack your opponent directly (so 3000 attack is excellent) and if this card destroys a monster, inflict damage to your opponent equal to the destroyed monsters attack, so a nice burn effect too.

Like I said last week, these monsters really aren't splashable, even in their own Deck, as only one can be on the Field at a time, but you can certainly construct a Deck around them in pairs, or even just around one at a time. They are a lot of fun.

Traditional: 2.85/5
Advanced: 3.85/5
Art: 3.5/5 Not too impressive
General Zorpa Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu

Today is the last Earthbound Immortal from this set. He has a rather stunning 3000 ATK and 2500 DEF, but that is again sub-standard for a level 10 monster. He is a DARk Fiend so he can fit pretty well into existing strategies, but you will definitely need to tailor a deck to this guy as his effects pretty much demand it. By the way, I looked up the rulings on level 10 monsters, and at least the NEW rulebook says that you use 2 tributes for ANYTHING of level 7 or higher. I apologize for anyone spreading misinformation.

He has the standard Earthbound Immortal effects. Only one on the field at a time, kill it if there is not a Field Spell, it can't be attacked and it can attack directly. The bonus effect is that when it kills something in Battle, you inflict damage to your opponent equal to it's ATK.

Well, it's effect is pretty bogus. Why attack a monster at all when you can attack directly? Kalut and Honest make it so that attacking monsters becomes far more dangerous than simply attacking directly. I suppose in a neutral game where neither player has much going on this guy is an absolute bomb, but I prefer to plan my games according to the fact that such an event will not occur. So far Aslla Piscu is far better and there are even better Immortals to come, so this guy gets an F and moves to the bottom of the Immortal's Greatest Hits list.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1/5

Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu …

Now I SHOULD be biased with this card … He’s a fiend (my favorite monster type), he’s Ultra rare, and he looks like a Celestial (check your marvel comics!) … plus he’s got 3000 ATK? Wow! Nothing could ruin this moment, right? …
Wrong. As much as I want this card to be awesome, the awesomeness stops pretty much right there. Oh, he’s dark too. But … yeah. That doesn’t help him out. The 3000 ATK is great, but because of his huge level, it’ll take 3 tributes just to normal summon him. Ccapac Apu, along with the annoying name to pronounce (I’ll just call him Apu), is just like the other Immortals in that he needs a Field spell to be active, cannot be selected as an attack target, and can attack your opponent directly. But his “Unique” effect is where he loses all his coolness. Any monster he destroys in battle your opponent takes extra damage = to that monster’s attack … seriously?!?!? Are u kidding me??? THAT is his effect? … Apu can attack DIRECTLY gosh darnnit!!! … for 3000!!!!! Why on earth would he ever be wasting his attack on another monster??
Best case scenario – your opponent's monster is in Attack mode, so the end result (battle damage + additional effect damage) will equal 3000 damage anyway … so why not just attack directly!?!? If your opponent’s monster is in DEF mode? – same question, but even moreso!!

Now a lot of people may be saying – u don’t want to leave monster on your opponent’s side of field if u can avoid it. They could always tribute it for something to hurt u if u give them the chance. And this is very very true. But let’s face it – the life expectancy for any monster in Yu-Gi-Oh WITHOUT self protection isn’t very long to begin with. 2 or 3 turns if u are lucky. So if u have something like Apu on the field, u want to make the most of him and dish out those 3000 knuckle sandwiches as quickly and often as possible before he’s g one. Ideally u can finish your opponent in 1 or 2 turns with him. Why waste a chance to hit for a sure 3000 by instead attackign a monster and walking DIRECTLY into Ryko’s flip effect … or a set Spirit Reaper …

Apu has no other skills, so his effect that essentially only DIMINISHES his usefulness is a crap effect. Thus, he’s one of the worst, if not THEE worst of the Earthbound Immortals.

Traditional: 2/5
Advnaced: 2.5/5

N o V a
Yay a themed card I seriously hate. Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu is my least favorite of the Earthbound Immortals, Aslla Piscu is my favorite. But we're reviewing Ccapac Apu today, like all Earthbound Immortals, there can only be one on the field at any given time and if there is no field spell on the field then its destroyed. Also like all Earthbound Immortals, they cannot be selected as attack targets and can attack directly. This clashes with Ccapac Apus effect, which is why I dont like this card. If he destroys a monster by battle, the opponent takes damage equal to the destroyed monsters attack. This doesn't seem to make much sense, I mean sure it is a threat in more than one way, but I'd rather just attack directly and im sure a lot of people would too. Its an ok card but I dont think I'd ever use it. Aslla Piscu is much better.

Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced: 1.5/5
