Since there are not very many cards with the
Gagaga theme, we are going to switch to the Gogogo
them. Hey they are close right, just turn the “o” to
an “a”. There are only 2 Gogogo monsters that I know
of: Today’s card Gogogo Giant and Gogogo Golem.
Gogogo Giant has a nice attack with 2000, but
unfortunately it has nasty effects that change it to
defense and with 0 defense, it is not going to last
This card does have some pluses. First, when you
summon Giant you get to special summon a Gogogo from
your graveyard. This means that you will be able to
Xyz summon a rank 4 monster. If that special
summoned Gogogo is another Giant, you can summon
Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon. It is not hard to get a
Gogogo to the grave. Just use Foolish Burial or Rock
A Thursday here on Pojo and we're looking at
another card with a name you can't say 5 times fast.
Gogogo Giant is level 4 EARTH/Rock type with 2000
ATK and 0 DEF. When Gogogo Giant is normal summoned,
you can target 1 Gogogo monster and your graveyard
and special summon it in face up defense position.
Then, change this card to defense position. If this
card attacks, it is changed to defense position
after the battle phase. Giant is there to make Xyz
summoning, and synchro summoning to an extent, even
faster. While 2000 is good for a level 4 monster, 0
DEF is bleh. And that DEF means something cause if
you attack with Giant it switches itself to defense
position after the battle phase. It's best effect
lies in it's ability to special summon another
Gogogo monster from the grave in face up defense.
Depending on what you do, you can Xyz or synchro
summon, or just have two walls there for protection.
Gogogo Giant does what he does pretty well, Gets you
a free monster from the grave to do what you need
Tomorrow: Two heads aren't always better than one.
Hello and welcome to a brand
new format where the plant synchro deck is dead and
the Top 3 decks are currently: Dino Rabbit,
Inzektors, and Wind-up! Today we are reviewing
Gogogo Giant, so let’s continue.
Rock/ Earth/ Level 4/ 2000 ATK/
When this card is Normal
Summoned: You can target 1 "Gogogo" monster in your
Graveyard; Special Summon that target in face-up
Defense Position, then change this card to Defense
Position. If this card attacks, it is changed to
Defense Position at the end of the Battle Phase.
This card would go great in
(obviously) rock stun decks. It can easily get over
Thunderking Rai-oh and other 1900 and 1800 atk
pests. The best part of this card is that it has a
recursion ability which allows you to summon another
monster from its own archetype. The obvious play is
special summoning another Gogogo Giant then go into
a Rank 4 XYZ as its defense is basically
Pros: good attack, great
recursion effect, and is potentially a 1 card rank 4
Cons: Laughable defense and not
so great continuous effect.
Well, I'll give you one thing: 2000 ATK isn't bad
(for that matter, Gogogo Golem's 1800 ATK is not
shabby either given it's an Earth Rock).
Given the likely prospect of more Gogogo's being
introduced in the future, I think it's way too early
to be giving Giant a decent rating. Regardless,
there are a total of six Gogogo monsters you can
run: three each of Giant and Golem.
Golem, in itself, is decent, I suppose, and is worth
considering for its synergy with Giant (it turns out
most level 4 Rock monsters with over 1800 ATK tend
to have negative effects). Giant itself can
instantly revive another copy, and is obviously
meant for an immediate Xyz summon, usually for
Utopia or, if a Rock theme is going on, Gem Knight
Pearl. Alternatively, if no such target is available
to summon, you can attack using Giant itself, then
Xyz with a level 4 monster already on the field (or
Synch with a Tuner) to bypass its suicidal effect.
Finally, since it is a 2000-ATK level 4 monster with
swarm capability, it can be a tool to play
Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon, although I highly doubt
anyone would want to consider that route.
To maximize its effect, you pretty much are mandated
to use three Gogogo Golems, and until more support
is produced, it just isn't all that fascinating.
Niche Decks: Rock Swarm, Gogogo, Photon
Aesthetics: 2/5 Go, go, Power Rangers?
Philosophy Corner: Once a shark killed a human.
This, in turn, incited the entire village to declare
a vendetta and go to the river in order to hunt the
shark. How would it be justifiable to seek murder as
an act of violence against a creature that needs to
prey for its survival?
