Hyper-Ancient Shark Megalodon is another long named Water Monster. This is a Level 8, Water attributed, Fish Monster, with an excellent 2900 attack and a not so great 1300 defense. Let me start by saying that Level 8 really hurts Water Monsters, at least in terms of Summoning. A Level 7 Water Monster still requires two tributes, BUT, IF you're playing A Legendary Ocean in your Water Deck, which isn't a necessity, but IF you are, a Level 7 Monster becomes Level 6 and only requires one tribute. Level 8 becomes Level 7 and still requires two tributes. Now, when HASM (as I'll refer to him for the rest of the review) inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent, you can target and destroy another Monster your opponent controls. Note there's an option, so you don't have to if you choose not to. With 2900 attack, you're likely to get the effect sometimes. There seem to be more and more Water Monsters all the time, and to that point, more high level ones with various effects. I'd consider this guy to be not that bad, but with Mermails being the Water Deck to beat, I'm not sure you have room for this guy.

Ratings (for Mermail, than Water)

Traditional: 2/5, 2.5/5
Advanced: 3/5, 3.5/5
Art: 4.5/5

Welcome to another card of the day review about cards from the Cosmo Blazer booster. Here we have a monster that may not seem like a very good card right now but will it be better in the future?

Hyper-Ancient Shark Megalodon
Attribute-Water
Type-Fish/Effect
Level 8
When this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent: You can target 1 monster your opponent controls; destroy that target.
ATK/2900 DEF/1300

So this monster has a really nice effect with a high attack power. It is a good monster that is level 8 so it can be used for trade-in. So why don’t people really play this monster? Realistically, there aren’t many ways to easily summon it. It needs two tributes to normal summon. You could run this monster in a deck with Genex Undine, Call of the Haunted and other monster revival cards. Genex Controller would be able to pitch Megalodon and then it can be special summoned back with Call of the Haunted. This would probably never be a competitive deck but it can be a good fun deck. This card would be better if it required only one tribute to summon but it is just way too slow to be played competitively.

Advanced: 1.5/5
-It is just way too slow right now. In the future this card may become better, but right now it’s just not good.

Traditional: 1/5

Art: 5/5
-Very nice art. It looks menacing and cool looking at the same time.

Hyper-Ancient Shark Megalodon
Water/Fish/Effect/Level8/2900/1300
You can Tribute Summon this card by Tributing 1 WATER monster. When this card inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent: You can destroy all monsters your opponent controls whose ATK is equal to or less than the amount of Battle Damage inflicted.

Next up is Hyper-Ancient Shark Megalodon, another in the long line of recent powerful Water monsters. First off Hyper-Ancient Shark Megalodon though a level 8 has the important alternative summoning method that is now essential for high level tribute monsters and in this case he can be tribute summoned using just 1 Water monster. So far so good.

His main effect is that if he inflicts battle damage you can destroy all monster your opponent controls whose ATK is less than or equal to the damage inflicted. On the plus side he has the ATK (2900) to use his effect, however unless you either do a lot of battle damage or your opponent has a lot of weak monsters you aren’t going to see many destroyed monsters.
Overall a decent Water monster but there are better fish in the sea.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
