- This card has an advantage over "Skill Drain" in that it can be used to negate the effects of a single monster, as opposed to all monsters on the field. It also can be used from the Graveyard (albeit only during its owner's turn), where it is difficult to negate.
- In a Ninja Deck, "Upstart Golden Ninja" lets you send a Trap Card from your hand to the Graveyard to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower "Ninja" monster from your Deck. Send Breakthrough Skill and you’ll get your Special Summon (and potential Xyz Summon) and a free shot at negating an opposing monster effect in the future.
