Speedroids: The Used Toy Section

October 8th, 2015

Yesterday we showed you the blazing acceleration of Speedroid Terrortop, an amazing monster that searches the rest of the Speedroids to Synchro Summon monsters like Goyo Guardian, Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, and Black Rose Dragon for just one card.

Those awesome plays kick off the Speedroid early game, but today we’ll look even deeper into the new theme from High-Speed Riders, to show you what they can do once you’ve built up your Graveyard.


While Speedroid Terrortop searches Speedroids from your Deck, Speedroid Double Yoyo revives a Level 3 or lower Speedroid from your Graveyard when you Normal Summon it. You can revive Terrortop to get another search effect, or bring back Speedroid Red-Eyed Dice for another Synchro Summon. Combined with Red-Eyed Dice’s Level shifting effect, Double Yoyo Tunes for almost any Synchro Monster from Level 2 to Level 7.

That’s a lot like Terrortop, but since one card searches your Deck and the other revives from your Graveyard, you can combine them to make sure you never run out of options. You can only search Red-Eyed Dice from your Deck three times, because you can only run three copies. But with Double Yoyo to reuse it you never run out of gas.

And while Speedroid Terrortop is at its best when you can Special Summon it to your empty field, Speedroid Double Yoyo’s even better when you already control monsters. Take the Level 4 Speedroid Menko: you can Special Summon it from your hand when your opponent tries to make a direct attack on your LP. Menko hits the field in Attack Position and turns all of your opponent’s face-up monsters to Defense Position, stopping them all from attacking.

Use Speedroid Menko’s ability to block an attack and Special Summon it. Then next turn, Normal Summon Speedroid Double Yoyo to revive Speedroid Red-Eyed Dice. Since Menko and Double Yoyo are both Level 4, you can Tune them to Red-Eyed Dice and ravage your opponent’s hand, field, and Graveyard with Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier!


Once your Speedroids hit the junk pile, there are lots of ways to put those spare parts to use. Double Yoyo can revive your monsters as you just saw, and yesterday we talked about Speedroid Tri-Eyed Dice’s defense ability; you can banish it from your Graveyard to block an attack. But the Speedroids’ Spell and Trap Cards build on that focus, making amazing things happen when you have the right cards in your Graveyard.

Shock Surprise is the simplest of the bunch, but it’s tremendously powerful. It’s a

Normal Spell that lets you banish up to two Speedroids from your Graveyard, then target the same number of cards on the field and destroy them. It’s really easy to blow away two cards for just one. Shock Surprise can destroy monsters, Spells, or Traps too, so whatever your opponent has you’re going to demolish it.

Speed Recovery’s another Normal Spell, but this one has two uses. First, you can activate it from your hand to revive any Speedroid monster from your Graveyard; bring back a “Hi-Speedroid” Synchro Monster, or grab Speedroid Terrortop or Speedroid Red-Eyed Dice to use their effects again; their abilities trigger whenever they’re Summoned.

When Speed Recovery’s in your Graveyard, you can banish it to return a “Speedroid” monster from your Graveyard to your hand. You can’t use both effects on the same turn, but over time Speed Recovery gets you two monsters for one card. That makes it even easier to gather your Synchro Materials.

Finally, you can activate Dice Roll Battle when your opponent declares an attack. When they do, you choose one “Speedroid” monster from your Graveyard, then banish the Speedroid you chose plus a “Speedroid” Tuner from your hand to Special Summon a Synchro Monster that matches their combined Levels. It’s a cool way to field a big monster when your opponent least expects it, especially a field-wrecking Black Rose Dragon.

When Dice Roll Battle’s in your Graveyard you can banish it in your opponent’s Battle Step for another effect: you’ll target two Attack Position Synchros, one on either side of the field, and force them into battle. Since Speedroids are so good at making big Synchro Summons you’ll often use Dice Roll Battle’s effect to destroy your opponent’s Synchro, then clear the field for a direct attack on your own turn. It’s tricky, but it can win you Duels.

Speedroids are one of the best Synchro Summoning themes we’ve ever seen. They make amazing Synchro Monsters for just one card, they search whatever you need, and they have a wealth of Graveyard effects to hammer home the win. You’ll find them in High-Speed Riders, so get ready to put the pedal to the metal and slam the brakes on your opponent!
