• Remember that this monster can activate its effect an unlimited number of times each turn, as long as there are Xyz Materials. With proper support (like the above tip), this monster can make its ATK rise very quickly.
  • Use the last effect of "The Phantom Knights' Rank-Up-Magic Launch" to give this card extra Xyz Materials so it can use its effect twice.
  • "Number 96: Dark Mist" can also be Summoned, then use "DNA Surgery" to treat it as a Dragon-Type (or any other Rank 2 monster and use both "DNA Transplant" and "DNA Surgery" to edit its stats) and use "Rank-Up-Magic Astral Force" to Xyz Summon this card with more Xyz Materials.
  • When running this card, it pays to play defensively until your opponent Summons a high-powered monster, so "Dark Rebellion" will come into play with an optimum ATK.
  • Combo this card with "Xyz Override" to gain more use out of its effect.
  • Since this card is easy for most Decks to get out, if your Deck has little offensive power, use this monster to supplement.
