In the ever growing army of Gagaga Monsters, we look
at certainly an interesting one, in an XYZ Monster,
Gagaga Cowboy. Gagaga Cowboy is a Rank 4, Warrior
type XYZ Monster, XYZ Summoned by two Level 4
Monsters, with 1500 attack and 2400 defense. So,
are we going to go Gaga over this Gagaga? Well, by
discarding an XYZ Material, you gain the following
effect based on the Cowboy's Battle Position. The
effect of your choice can be activated only once per
If in attack position, when Cowboy goes to attack an
opponent's Monster, Cowboy gains 1000 attack and the
opponent's Monster loses 500 attack, only during the
if in defense position, inflict 800 Damage to your
So let's recap here. The first effect isn't bad,
but you can't use it if your opponent attacks Gagaga
Cowboy. You have to do the attacking. The burn is
nice, and you want Cowboy in Defense position, but
800 is negligible for discarding an XYZ. I'm not
even sure I'd use this guy in a Gagaga Deck, and
don't use it just because you see Yuma do it on tv.
He's even worse than Jaden was, seriously.
Art: 5/5 Looks pretty badass though
Gagaga Cowboy can work in just about any side
deck as it takes two generic level four monsters.
What it gives you is basically a 3000 attack monster
that can do effect damage depending on the battle
position of your opponents monster. Unfortunately,
these effects only work when you attack. If your
opponent is attacking, then you have a week 1500
attack monster with 2400 defense.
Gagaga Cowboy is essentially your beet stick Rank 4
monster to get over your opponent’s strong monster,
in much the same way as Acid Golem is for Rank 3
monsters. The nice thing about the Cowboy is that is
has a second effect that can burn your opponent for
800 life points. If your opponent is trying to stall
by playing defense monsters and is down to 800 or
less life points, the Cowboy can end the game for
you. It does not even have to destroy the monster.
Plying cards like Enemy Controller and Book of Moon
will also help your cause. If you are on game three
in time and you need to inflict damage to win the
match, this guy will do the job for you.
Gagaga Cowboy gives you another tool in a never
ending tool bag of Extra deck cards. Most people are
finding a home and making room for this card in
their Extra deck.
I hope The Almighty Pojo puts this up at 12/12/12
at 12:12:12 today....just saying. Gagaga Cowboy is
one of those cards that you look and you want it to
do more than what it does. A Rank 4 Xyz monster,
needing any 2 level 4 monsters to Xyz summon. With
1500 ATK and an eyebrow raising 2400 DEF as it's
base stats, it can fend off a lot while in defense
position. There more than a dozen ways to get Gagaga
Cowboy out the field so im not getting into cards
like Rescue Rabbit, Double Summon, or the Gagaga
Duo, or that decks like Six Samurai or even
Stall/Burn can benefit a little from this card, so
im not. When Cowboy is in attack position, you can
detach an Xyz material and when this card attacks an
opponent's monster, Cowboy gains 1000 ATK while the
monster it is attacking loses 500 ATK during the
damage step only. At times that could make all the
difference between a win or a loss. And with 1500
ATK, it could use a bit more help, so something like
Heroic Champion - Extra Sword could give you the
extra ATK power you need, even before raising it
another 1000 ATK. And while in Defense position, you
can detach an Xyz material to burn your opponent for
800 damage. Not bad, but I would have had it do
something like your opponent's monsters has to
attack Gagaga Cowboy instead of your other monsters.
Then this card would have gotten a higher score from
me. But overall, Gagaga Cowboy is one of those cards
you either use or don't use. I say try it out in
casual/fun duels, see how it works and then maybe it
could find a spot in your extra deck on a full time
