World Superstars: Hot-Headed HERO!

March 30th, 2015

World Superstars is filled with monsters making their stateside debut, but only one of these monsters can call himself a hero: Elemental HERO Blazeman!


Elemental HERO Blazeman has a couple of awesome effects, and you can activate one of its effects each turn.

  • If Blazeman is Normal or Special Summoned, you can add one Polymerization from your Deck to your hand. Not all Elemental HERO Decks use Polymerization, but for those that do, Blazeman’s effect make it easier than ever before to Fusion Summon monsters in the traditional way.
  • Elemental HERO Blazeman lets you send one Elemental HERO other than Blazeman from your Deck to your Graveyard, in order to change Blazeman’s Attribute, Attack Points, and Defense Points to match the Attribute, Attack Points, and Defense Points of the HERO sent to the Graveyard by Blazeman’s effect. You can’t Special Summon monsters, except Fusion Monsters, for the rest of the turn after activating this effect. Note that it’s “except Fusion Monsters” not “except by Fusion Summoning”. That distinction is very important because Mask Change and Mask Change II Special Summon Fusion Monsters, but don’t actually Fusion Summon!

Blazeman’s second effect is powerful for lots of different reasons.

First, Blazeman’s ability to copy the ATK of any Elemental HERO in your Deck enables it to destroy some of your opponent’s strongest monsters in battle. Although Blazeman’s original ATK is only 1200, using Blazeman’s effect to copy the ATK of something more powerful like Elemental HERO Neos (2500 ATK) or Elemental HERO Bladedge (2600 ATK) transforms it into a fierce warrior in battle.

Second, Blazeman’s power to copy the Attribute of any Elemental HERO in your Deck will smooth out your Fusion Summons so that you can always Summon the monster you want. Many Elemental HERO monsters, including Elemental HERO Absolute Zero, Elemental HERO The Shining, Masked HERO Acid, and Masked HERO Dark Law, can only be Special Summoned by using a monster of a specific Attribute to create it. Since Blazeman can change its Attribute on command, it will help fulfill the requirement for Summoning your favorite Elemental HERO Fusion Monsters when using cards like Polymerization, Mask Change, and Miracle Fusion.

Finally, Blazeman’s ability to send any Elemental HERO from your Deck to your Graveyard each turn is a big help to HERO Decks. By sending powerful HERO monsters to your Graveyard, you can fuse them together with Miracle Fusion, or Special Summon them with cards like O – Oversoul and Call of the Haunted. Perhaps most importantly, by sending Elemental HERO Shadow Mist to the Graveyard with Blazeman’s effect, you can activate Shadow Mist’s effect. If Shadow Mist is sent to the Graveyard, you can add any “HERO” monster, other than Shadow Mist, from your Deck to your hand. That means Elemental HERO Blazeman can send a Shadow Mist to the Graveyard each turn in order to reliably add a “HERO” monster of your choosing to your hand – including another Blazeman!

Elemental HERO Blazeman
is a versatile card that will be an asset to nearly every Elemental HERO Deck. You can get your hands on Blazeman after the release of World Superstars!
