• "Proto-Cyber Dragon", "Cyber Dragon Zwei", "Cyber Dragon Core" or "Cyber Dragon Drei" can be banished instead of the original "Cyber Dragon" to allow this card to gain ATK.
    • Note that the above cards are only treated as "Cyber Dragon" while on the field or Graveyard. To use this effect, the substitute "Cyber Dragons" must be face-up on the field. Only the printed "Cyber Dragon" can be used for this effect from the hand.
  • Banish "Cyber Dragon Drei" with this card effect. Not only can this card's ATK increased, one of your "Cyber Dragon" that was Special Summoned by this card effect can be protected from being destroyed.
  • An OTK can be performed by activating this card's effect to give it a 2100 ATK boost and moreover doubling it with "Limiter Removal" to a total of 8400 damage.
  • Use this card's effect to Special Summon a "Cyber Dragon", then Normal Summon "Heraldic Beast Basilisk" and switch the control of it by using "Creature Swap". Then, attack "Basilisk" with this card and after this card be destroyed by its effect, Special Summon "Barbaroid, the Ultimate Battle Machine" or "Cyber Twin Dragon" and attack with it. Without counting with the opponent's monster switched, this combo can deal a total of:
    • 15300 damage, if the Fusion Monster was "Barbaroid":
      • 3200 (this card with a 2100 ATK boost attacking "Basilisk") + 4000x2 (assuming that the opponent's monsters have 0 ATK and are in Attack Position, once "Barbaroid" can't attack directly) + 2 x 1000 (the effect of "Barbaroid") + 2100
        • 28600 if "Limiter Removal" is used (as "Barbaroid"'s effect damage isn't doubled);
    • 11900, if the chosen Fusion Monster was "Cyber Twin Dragon" and your opponent controlled no other monster, besides the one that was switched, or 23800 with "Limiter Removal."
  • "Inferno Reckless Summon" can be used when you Special Summon "Proto-Cyber Dragon" or "Cyber Dragon Core" to Special Summon three copies of the original "Cyber Dragon", then use two of the "Cyber Dragons" to Xyz Summon this card. This allows this card's effect of gaining ATK to be used by banishing "Proto-Cyber"/"Core" on the same turn.
  • This card's name is not considered to have the same name as "Cyber Dragon", so if "Evolution Burst" is used in combination with a card who does have that effect. Use it to Xyz Summon this card, then this card can still attack.
  • "Level Lifter" is a good way to get this card out quickly is to discard a Level 5 monster to make both your Machine monsters Level 5 to Xyz Summon this card.
    • Even better, in a well-made Machine /"Cyber Dragon" Deck, this monster can be Summoned in 1 turn, and activate its effect, using "Level Lifter". Normal Summon "Tin Goldfish", then use its effect to Summon any Level 4 Machine monster. Use "Level Lifter" to discard "Cyber Dragon" and target the Machine monsters that was just Summoned. Now use those two monsters to bring this monster out, and use its effect right away to bring back your discarded "Cyber Dragon".
