Absolute Crusader, a Monster who really looks as though he should be a Spellcaster, is a Level 4 Monster, of the Earth attribute, with 1800 attack and 1200 defense.  Now, Absolute Crusader is essentially the non-XYZ Monster version of Steelswarm Roach.  Crusader allows you to tribute himself to destroy a Level 5 or higher Monster when Special Summoned, as opposed to discarding an XYZ Material Monster.  In comparison alone, if only because it's faster, albeit a one time thing, I like this more than its XYZ counterpart.

Ratings:

Traditional:  2/5
Advanced:  3/5
Art:  5/5

Absolute Crusader

I don't like this card. It has the same effect as Thunder King Rai-Oh, but it doesn't have the 1900 ATK, can only hit high-LEVEL monsters (AKA he can't hit Xyz), and doesn't lock down the opponent's deck. It's not an optional effect, and it doesn't even negate the summon.

The only advantage Absolute Crusader has over Rai-Oh is that Rai-Oh must negate the summon, but cannot negate an effect that summons, therefore he can't stop Call of the Haunted or Monster Reborn. And that's not enough to make him worth running.

1/5 -- stick to the superior Rai-Oh.
Art: A lot of armor.
Fun Fact: Rai-Oh means Thunder King in Japanese.
