General Zorpa Rapid Warrior
 
This is another one of Yusei's incredibly useless cards that somehow manage to win him the game no matter what happens. Anyways, it is a level 4 WIND Warrior with 1200 ATK and 200 DEF. These stats are abyssmal, and pretty much unless it has Quillbolt Hedgehog's effect, I am walking.
 
And it does not... The effect is that once per turn it can attack an opponent directly, but no other card can attack that turn. Hmm, Drill Warrior and Watt Giraffe are far superior as far as attacking directly, and even though it gains some playability from being a Warrior, it's not enough to save this card form the junk binder.
 
Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1/5

Rapid Warrior:

Atk directly cards just don't do it for me. They never have high enough atk values (barring toons and EBIs, but they both suck so who cares) or secondary effects that make them worth running. Who cares if you can atk directly for 1200 if that same monster is stuck on your field in atk position when your opponent's turn starts... sure, you can equip him, but why not just run bigger monsters in the first place? This dude is even four star, so he can't even get under gravity bind or level limit B! Waste of a card in my opinion.

Traditional: 1.0
Advanced: 1.5

Rapid Warrior is the shiny card from the new starter that nobody wants. 1200 points to attack directly with is nice, but not when it means only he can attack. Why not use Submarineroid instead? Or why not Wattgiraffe? The tiny ATK boost isn't worth losing out on your other attacks, especially when Drill Warrior will get you that direct 1200 for free, while fueling the deck.

1.5/5
Art: Ugly robot.
Fun Fact: If you have two Fortune Lady Darks, you can activate both of their effects after battles.
Tomorrow: The one we haven't reviewed yet.

"During your Main Phase 1, you can activate  this card's effect. If you do, it can attack your opponent directly this turn. Other monsters cannot attack during the turn your activate this effect."

Here's another example of a card that doesn't quite fit in with the meta, or the deck for which it's built for.  The stats for this level 4 monster are on the low side, and his ability his not that great.  Sure, attacking directly is an ok option, but not being able to swing with the rest of your monsters?  Well, that's too much of a downside to use this card.  Adding to that, if you activate Rapid Warrior's effect, and he gets removed/destroyed/flipped face down and doesn't attack, you still don't get to attack with your other monsters.  Way too many downsides, not enough reward.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

Rapid Warrior

This card is starter deck filler. Cards that attack directly don't cut it unless they have an additional effect (see: Unifrog).

T: 1/5
A: 1/5
