This little Water monster has of late become quite the popular monster, I of more recent times have quite often been asked as to if I have any spare copies of Jigabyte for trading.

 

The main reason for this little guys increase in play is that it not only helps Clown Blade create early plays that would otherwise be much harder to achieve, but it sees a small amount of play in some Shaddoll variants.

Additionally, this card is searchable from the Deck via King of the Feral Imps, is that all important Level 4 and because it’s a Water-type monster, can be used to increase the base attack of Abyss Dweller if used as an Xyz material for it.

 

While this is an important little “Tech” monster, it is actually very hard to say a lot about it since how you use it is really so simple, if this is your only monster, you Summon/ Set it and then as long as your opponent destroys it, you’ll be able to Special Summon from your Deck a Nefarious Archfiend Eater of Nefariousness or Inari Fire, or if you control a Spellcaster monster, you can Special Summon this straight from your hand.

The only minor inconvenience with this card is that you can only ever control 1 “Jigabyte” at a time, but since you’ll likely be Xyz’ing with it, this is a pretty easy issue to overcome.

 

Rating: 3. Handy “Tech” card for Decks that run a sufficient amount of Spellcasters.

Jigabyte (much like the Blackwing we reviewed yesterday) is very good theme support, in this case, for Reptiles, and it's own family.  Working well in either, or both.  You can only control one Jigabyte, which might seem silly, and I agree to a point.  It prevents swarming, if you lost three in Battle in the same Battle Phase, you'd get three appropriate replacements.  Those being another Monster (ANY Monster) so long as it has 1500 atk and 200 def like this guy.  OH but wait, you get said effect if Jigabye is destroyed by card effect also.  It doesn't matter who destroys it either, but remember, it must go to the Graveyard.  If all this wasn't enough, it can be Special Summoned from your Hand if you control a Spellcaster.  Great card

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Jigabyte is best used in connection with Nefarious Archfiend Eater of Nefariousness and Inari Fire, as all revolve around Spellcaster-Type monsters and Special Summon in roughly the same way. Jigabyte can search Nefarious and Inari, while you can use Nefarious to destroy Jigabyte to Special Summon itself, then search and Special Summon Inari.
 
Special Summons are good, but none of these three monsters are Spellcaster-Type monsters, and, as tech choices go, there are better Special Summon monsters to add to a deck (BLS). Jigabyte can't search a copy of itself, but can Special Summon Inari or Nefarious, again, better choices for monsters that can Special Summon.
 
Advanced-1.5/5
Art-2.5/5

Continuing with Level 4 week we have Jigabyte. I believe my review for King of the Feral Imps should go up slightly because Jigabyte is a Reptile-type monster worth getting with King's effect. The rest of Jigabyte's stats are a Level 4 Water monster with 1500 Atk and 200 Def. 1500 Atk always reminds me of the die-by-battle searchers, in this case Mother Grizzly, but I don't see that making a comeback anytime soon. 
 
I'm glad this card has 2 effects. The first effect is that if you control a Spellcaster-type monster, you can Special Summon Jigabyte from your hand. You can only control 1 Jigabyte to keep from spamming, but easy Level 4 Special Summons are great. The second effect is to Special Summon any monster with 1500 Atk and 200 Def from the deck when Jigabyte is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard. You can't get another Jigabyte which really limits this effects usefulness. There aren't many monsters that fit such strict criteria, but it's better than nothing. 
 
Score: 3.5/5 Atk is a bit low for Level 4 and the second effect's summon list is small. 
Art: 3/5 I'm not sure why he is being electrocuted. It makes sense with the name, I guess. If anything, I would want a Spellcaster in the image supporting Jigabyte.

Snodin Jigabyte

Ah, another chapter in the Gagagigo series reveals itself. For those of you who don't know, this Monster actually has a story to tell along with Freed the Brave Warrior. Here we see him in his adult stage prior to the cybernetic enhancements. His ability to be Special Summoned when you have a Spellcaster on the field is actually a nod to the story; apparently Freed is his best buddy.

In a way, Jigabyte is actually a step up from the traditional searchers (Giant Rat, Mother Grizzly, etc.), because he can get his search effect not just in battle but also if he's destroyed via card effect. However, the monster he is searching for is VEEEEEEEEERY specific; 1500/200 only. I don't know about you, but I can't name any monsters off the top of my head that fit that criteria. So, he comes close to being good.... but not close enough.

Final Score: 2/5
