Normal Monster?  There's not much to say here.  We have another Normal Monster with a ridiculously sick picture, and a Special Edition Promo to boot!  Noble Knight Artorigus is a Level 4, Light attributed, Warrior (all good things, work well obviously with Chaos) who has 1800 attack and defense.  Works well in Chaos, Warrior, even a Beatdown (or a Normal Deck, which do exist).  There seems to be quite a bit of lore behind this Noble Knight, I'd be interested in reading it.

We start this week off with the promo card for Galactic Overlord, Noble Knight Artorigus. There is not much to say about this card as it relates to how it affects the game. It has pretty decent stats for a normal monster with 1800 defense and attack. It is also a light warrior so it can be used in Warrior decks and with Honest. You could also use it with Rescue Rabbit to Xyz summon monsters like Utopia and Blade Armor Ninja.
 
The real value of Noble Knight is in the artwork and flavor. The first thing we notice is that the picture is of a knight pulling a sward out of a rock. This is because the name Artorigus means Arthur – aka King Arthur. The text is written as a poem and is the only Normal Monster to have its text written this way. It is also one of the only cards to have its artwork done by someone other than a Japanese artist.
 
If you are a collector, you will want this card in your collection. If not, then forget you even read this article as you will probably never see this card being played.

A new week means new cards....that aren't Heiratic cards. First out the gate is Noble Knight Artorigus. A Level 4, Normal, Light/Warrior type with the pretty bold stats of 1800 for both ATK and DEF. His flavor text pretty much says how he stole Excaliber from King Arthur, I believe. Anywho, Artorigus is a Normal monster, so he gets all access to their crop of goodies such as Justi-Break and Birthright. He's a Warrior-Type, so Reinforcements of the Army, Warrior returning Alive, and all that other countless Warrior-related stuff. Light attribute, well, that equals Honest. But He's useful when paired with Rescue Rabbit, you can get out two copies to Xyz a Rank 4 monster of your choosing. Overall, not the best Normal monster, but he has a few uses.

Noble Knight Artiorigus-
 
Hey Duelists, Coming to you with today's COTD is Team Sentinel's BlackMarketYuGiOh and Shad0wslayr. Today we will be discussing Noble Knight Artorigus, a Light Attribute Level 4 Normal Warrior-type Monster. with 1800/1800 attack and defensive points. What can we really say about this card? Well, not realy much of anything honestly. Key points however are as follows, The art on the card is quite impressive. Honestly, he looks like King Arthur pulling forth Excalibur. Also, the flavor text on the card is by far the best I've seen on a card in a while. Now with that being said, do we see the card being played? Not currently but who knows it might be useful for the Heroic Champions when they emerge later this year. A possible Rescue rabbit hybrid? Maybe. Its a solid Blade Armor Ninja or HC Excalibur.
 
 Advanced: 1/5 only time will tell
Traditional: 1/5
Artwork: 4/5 as well as the pic being awesome, the flavor text adds to the experience, kudos

I remember Dark Paladin and Argouru were doing the last card for 2011: Sabersaurus. They both gave it relatively low scores and had zero mention for its Tour Guide and Evolzar combo, the only reason we were really covering Sabersaurus anyway.  

1800 is the highest ATK for any Normal Warrior, and Arthur here also has the highest DEF of them all: 1800. This makes Arthur the strongest Warrior you can summon with Rescue Rabbit. 

But what is the point of all this? Is there any Rank 4 Xyz that specifically requires Warriors for its Xyz Material? Well...yes, yes there is, and I believe Arthur was designed specifically to work with Rabbit to bring him out*. He is, however, not as significant as the Evolzars, and that, in turn, significantly hampers Arthur's own score as a very bourgeois monster.

*That monster is Heroic Champion Excalibur. The Heroics are an archetype of Earth Warrior monsters, except for the Xyz Excalibur, which is Light. Quite admittedly, however, Blade Armour Ninja is better than Excalibur. 

Traditional: 1/5

Advanced: 1.2/5 (the only applicable use I can think for him is Normal Warriors with Dark Blade, if only for his Attribute to summon Black Luster Soldier; otherwise he can be used with a very situational Rescue Rabbit)

Aesthetics: Anyone that comes with his own storyline instantly maxes out in coolness value. He's almost like anime girls, my go-to example being Dark Magician Girl. They would be really awkward if you'd meet them in real life, or even someone LIKE them, but in concept...off-the-charts cool. He should've been part of the Heroic archetype though, or at least get more Noble Knight support. 

Philosophy Corner: I do believe life is a game, but that doesn't always mean you have to play by the rules.
