Inzektor Exa-Beetle, a Rank 6, Dark attributed, XYZ Monster, with 1000 attack and defense, brings into play why the first two cards of the week could be so important, what with the Level increases and all.  When this card is XYZ Summoned, you can target a card in the Graveyard, either Graveyard note, and this card gains attack and defense equal to half the Monster chosen when equipped.  Also, once per turn, you can discard an XYZ Material Monster from this card to select two cards on the Field, (one from each side) and sen them to the Graveyard.  Sending cards to the Graveyard is good, even in this case where its one of your own, as this combos well with most of the other effects of Inzektors.  The only real downfall is the low attack (base of 1000) and the fact it only gains HALF the attack of a Monster equipped.  For instance, a 2000 attack equip only gives Exa-Beetle 2000 total attack.  But if you can equip something powerful enough, you might have a force to be reckoned with.

Now that we have covered many of the main Inzektor monsters and how they work together, we are going to put them to work to make Inzektor Exa-Beetle. Exa-Beetle has a Scrap Dragon like effect but only better. Instead of destroying two cards, it sends two face-up cards (one on each side of the field) to the graveyard. That fits right into the theme of the Inzektors. You send their Stardust Dragon or Xyz monster to the graveyard and one of your attached Inzektors and get the effect of your sent Inzektor monster. If you do not have an attached Inzektor monster, just use Exa-Beetle’s first effect to attach one to it when you Xyz summon it.
 
Getting Inzektor Exa-Beetle to the field is fairly easy for an Inzektor deck. Most Inzektor monsters are level 3 and are increased by 3 levels when attached with another of the level 3 monsters. Inzektor Giga-Mantis is also a level 6 monster and can be special summoned from the deck by Inzektor Dragonfly. If you feel like running some Rykos and Effect Veilers in you deck so you can run BLS, you might as well add a Chaos Sorcerer so you have another way to make a level 6.
 
Obviously, Inzektor Exa-Beetle can be summoned by other deck types as well. Chaos Dragons, Laval’s, Jurrac, Evols, and Dragunity decks are just a few of the decks that can make level 6 monsters fairly easy. I am not too crazy about the 1000 atk and def that Exa-Beetle has, but this little defect can be overcome with its first effect or with other Inzektors. By attaching Inzektor Giga-Mantis to Exa-Beetle from your hand, you can make Exa-Beetle’s original attack 2400, then add in the 1200 attack boost via Beetle’s effect and you have a 3600 attack monster.

Angelic Nightmare

Inzektor Exa-Beetle
Insect/ Dark/ Rank 6/ 1000 ATK/ 1000 DEF
2 Level 6 monsters

When this card is Xyz Summoned: You can target 1 monster in either player's Graveyard; equip that target to this card. This card gains ATK and DEF equal to half the original ATK and DEF of the monster equipped by this effect. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card to target 1 face-up card on each side of the field; send those targets to the Graveyard.

Today we are reviewing our first Rank 6 XYZ and it has some unique uses outside of an Inzektor deck. In a Dragon deck you can equip Light Pulsar Dragon or Light and Darkness Dragon. When they are sent from the field to graveyard (doesn’t specify whether as a monster or spell/trap) and have their effects activate. This card can also be used in various other decks like Destiny Hero because of D-HERO Malicious and D-HERO Dasher, Rekindling decks, Zombie Decks, and of course in the intended Inzektor deck.

The best thing to do with this card is retrieve your opponent’s monsters that they were planning to revive like treeborn frog, stardust dragon, etc. Over all, this card has some unique uses, but it’s rank is kind of awkward to summon.

Well, this guys is interesting, but far too restrictive. Even with equiped Inzektors on the field, that's a lot of effort to get out a guy who might not have very good targets to draw on for his equip effect. He certainly won't hit the field until the late game and by then, his effect might not be enough to win you the duel. Having to lose one of your cards as well is what really hurts the usefulness of his second effect as the card you'll have to lose might be a critical one. On top of everything else, he's a Secret Rare, meaning he'll be rediculously expensive and hard to get. My advice is to save your money.

Too hard to get out, too weak and a rather sharp cost for might end up being a situational effect.
