Raidraptor – Ultimate Falcon
 
Like fusion monsters that can be brought out by Instant Fusion, it’s equally hard to rate an XYZ or synchro that solely depends on other cards. No one is ever going to XYZ summon Ultimate Falcon normally. Three level-10 bird types is outrageous. So, you bring him out in one of two other ways: through the spell cards Skip Force or Cattle Call, or through the monster Last Strix. You can Skip Force into Ultimate Falcon using Revolution Falcon and get him in his full glory, or you can use the before-mentioned cards to bring Ultimate Falcon out with no material and use him as material for the summon of Number 77: The Seven Sins.
 
And this is what makes him such a beast. He’s not difficult to bring out, especially in Raidraptor decks dedicated to doing just that. He’s a monster with 3500 ATK that you HAVE to kill in battle (unless you have the cure-all Kaiju in hand.) His second effect is okay, but that’s just what I call a “bonus effect.” What matters is that this is a GG Monster, and there’s not many of those. His future potential is also good since Raidraptors are run by a regular character in Arc-V and can expect more future support.
 
However, like Norden, I rate em how I see em. Last Strix, Skip Force, and Cattle Call are the cards that make Ultimate Falcon relevant. Without them, Falcon would never see the light of day. However, unlike Norden, Falcon can be brought out by cards that were meant to bring him out and are part of his theme – Skip Force and Last Strix. Norden doesn’t have a card like that, and so I can rate him a little better than the 1/5 I gave to him and to Thousand Eyes Restrict.
 
Advanced: 3/5
Future Potential: 3/5

The best card that you will (most likely) not be able to summon.  Running the materials you need to summon it (Doom Force, XYZ Universe, etc.) are just going to clog your hands.  If you're able to pull off the large combo to summon this card, you're probably in a win-more position anyway.  I'd say it's only a waste of Extra Deck space, but someone trying to seriously summon this thing is going to blemish their deck with crap cards. 

1.5/5

I love boss monsters. Raidraptor - Ultimate Falcon has huge stats. It is a Rank 10 Dark Winged Beast-type XYZ monster with 3500 Atk and 2000 Def. Even though it requires 3 Level 10 Winged Beast monsters to XYZ summon this behemoth, it's still worth it because of the stats alone. Its effects make it a protected force to be reckoned with. 
 
Even without XYZ material, Raidraptor - Ultimate Falcon is unaffected by other card effects, including your own. It only has one effect that costs one material which makes your opponent's monsters lose 1000 Atk and then all their cards and effects can't be activated. That can only be activated during your turn, but it lasts the whole turn. Finally, if there is a Raidraptor attached Ultimate Falcon, during the End Phase you can bring their monsters down another 1000 Atk. But if there aren't any on the field, this effect inflicts 1000 points of Direct Damage. This monster can win a game on its own with just that last effect. It also of course has perfect synergy with all the Raidraptor rank up effects. However, it is still in a deck that just isn't consistent enough to be relevant. As a monster, Ultimate Falcon is indeed worth the effort it takes to bring it out. 
 
Score: 4/5
Art: 4/5
