3 Level 4 Winged Beast-Type monsters
This card can attack all Special Summoned monsters your opponent controls, once each. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up Special Summoned monster your opponent controls; this card gains ATK equal to that monster's current ATK.

This card can get powerful and go on a battle
rampage, but requiring 3 monsters (instead of the
standard 2) is too pricy.Your opponent needs to control 3 monsters to
make this card worthy of use.And, if Rise Falcon is hit with a Trap Card,
that's a -2 for you.Not good odds.
Might be useful on some rare occasion for a Winged
Beast deck, but overall, it's bad.
Raidraptor-Rise Falcon, is a Rank 4 XYZ Monster, who
is a Winged-Beast (but clearly a Machine judging by
the artwork) with 100 attack and 2000 defense, and
requires three Level 4 Winged-Beast Monsters to be
XYZ Summoned. So we're obviously seeing how
effective this is in it's Deck as it can't be played
elsewhere. Guess it's not a Machine cause they
have enough toys. Now first, most people, to
include myself say, sure, he can increase his attack
via his effect, but why not simply play something
stronger in the first place? Plus, is he
really worth THREE XYZ Material? Well, maybe
not exactly but it does actually make him better, in
terms of one of his effects. First, he can
attack all Special Summoned Monsters once each in a
turn, and by discarding an XYZ Material, once a turn
he can gain attack equal to that of a Special
Summoned Monster your opponent controls.
Honestly, since he can only work in a dedicated
Winged-Beast build, I don't see why you don't use
one. He's not broken, but he doesn't suck
hurts this card is that it requires 3x Level 4
monsters AND they must be Winged-Beast type
this limits the cards ability to be used by any
Deck… After all, its not generic so it requires a
specific Deck such as the obvious Raidraptors and
then Blackwings, Harpie Lady’s and possibly even if
using a Bujingi or a Mist Valley Deck.
AND if you
are REALLY desperate to Summon this, consider DNA
Surgery or the hideously situational to use Xyz
So since it
is expensive (to Summon) and essentially more
difficult to Summon out reliably, there will surely
be an effect that makes it worthy of not only
Summoning, but taking up a Space in your Extra Deck,
really, while it can attack up to 5 times in the one
turn AND it can always run over the biggest monster
your opponent controls (if its in attack position
though of course!), AND it can even help you in some
situations to OTK an opponent, the reality is that
it’ll be more often than not a dead weight, and
Extra Deck’s simply cannot afford wasted space in
So for a
card that MIGHT help you out, this is disappointing.
the good side, your opponent cannot use Bottomless
Trap Hole against you when you Summon this, so
that’s a positive! Hooray!
Lets see if it’ll get better, but apart from more
situational combo’s this will rarely if ever truly
benefit you more than something else, making it more
of a liability than an asset.
"Oh obscured falcon, raise your sharpened claws
in face of adversity, and spread your wings of
rebellion! Xyz Summon! Appear now, Rank 4!, Raid
Raptors, Rise Falcon!"
For today's card, we have one of the ace cards of
Shun Kurosaki, quite possibly my favorite character
so from Arc-V(which you should all be watching, for
the record), in Raidraptor, Rise Falcon
I want to like this card, truly I do, because of how
badass its portrayal in the anime was. So, for the
summoning conditions, it requires 3 Winged Beasts.
This severely limits what it can be played in, and
basically narrows it down to Harpies, Blackwings,
and Raidraptors, once they get their cards in the
future and become an ok deck. It's attack stat is a
paltry 100, and its defense is an alright 2000.
So moving to the effect, it can attack each
specialed monster your opponent controls. Which
would be useless with its stat, but it can detach a
material once per turn to gain the attack of a
Long story short: it isn't worth it. If you want to
nuke fields, use Exciton Knight, and if you want to
gain attack, use Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon. Sadly, a
cool anime card that sucks.
Advanced:1.5/5(this rating disgusts me)
I want to
start by talking about how cool Raidraptors are. I
mean, seriously. They look so much better in the
anime than you would know from their generic ZEXAL
style artwork. Shun Kurosaki plays them as well, and
he’s also really cool.
Rise Falcon. It’s nowhere near the menace that it is
in the anime, where it could be a powerful OTK tool.
In the real game it can still be possibly used to
OTK, but those occasions are generally going to be
rare. The effect is still okay. The attack increase
is permanent and you can use the effect multiple
times if by some slim chance Rise Falcon survives
Raidraptors aren’t fleshed out yet, at least, not in
the TCG, Rise Falcon can only really be used in two
decks, Harpies and Blackwings, and this is
stretching the truth quite a bit, given that if a
Harpie player ever has a chance to go for a 3
material Rank 4, there’s not really many reasons to
run this over Harpie's Pet Phantasmal Dragon. In
Blackwings, there’s not going to be many occasions
that you’re going to want to go for this either,
because in all likelihood you’re going to want to be
killing your opponent faster than this can generally
do so. In terms of advantage, this is a big -2 card
to summon, so you probably won’t have many monsters
left to kill your opponent off with after summoning
it all comes down to the cards that make this
monster work not being out yet, but it’s interesting
to see where the deck, and this card, is going to
