- Special Summon "Evil Hero Dark Gaia" by using "Dark Fusion" with cards like "Valkyrion the Magna Warrior" and "Raviel, Lord of Phantasms", then use "Dark Calling" to summon another Dark Gaia to the field. Play "Burial from a Different Dimension" and put Valkyrion and Raviel back into your Graveyard, and you could use another "Dark Calling" to summon a 3rd Dark Gaia, potentially winning the duel in a single move.
- Use "Magical Stone Excavation" to discard two Fusion Materials to recover this card. Then activate it to fuse the two material monsters in the graveyard.
- Use cards like "Morphing Jar", "Card Destruction", and "Hand Destruction" to speed up this card's playability.
- You can add this card to any Deck that includes high ATK Rock and Fiend monsters, such as "Granmarg the Rock Monarch" and "Caius the Shadow Monarch" (without using "Dark Fusion"). As long as you only use it with monsters in the Graveyard, you won't lose Card Advantage, while Summoning "Evil Hero Dark Gaia".
- You can use this card right after using "Dark Fusion" to Special Summon another copy of the Summoned monster.
- After Special Summoning a Monster with "Dark Calling", you can Special Summon the material monsters removed from play to the field with "Dimension Fusion".
- Fusion Monsters that specifically require "Dark Fusion" to be Special Summoned, but can use this card as a substitute in order to be Special Summoned from the Extra Deck:
