• This card can be used as the discard for "Trade-In".
  • Activate this card's effect, then Tribute it for the effect of "Athena" and Special Summon this card again to prevent it from being destroyed by its own effect.
    • Special Summon "Darklord Superbia" instead and use its effect to Special Summon this card for more damage.
  • When your opponent uses this card's effect, chain "Enemy Controller" to take control of it, then it will resolve and destroy their monsters instead.
  • Use this card along with "The Dark Creator" to constantly reuse its effect, using the discarded cards for the effect of "Dark Creator".
  • After using this card's effect and attacking, use "Eradicator Epidemic Virus" to hinder your opponent's Spell or Trap Cards.
  • Tribute Summon this card normally using "Hardened Armed Dragon" to prevent this card from destroying itself.
  • Special Summon this monster with "Celestial Transformation" to quickly use its effect. "Inferno Reckless Summon" can also be used since its ATK will be halved to Summon more copies of itself for a potential OTK, since the three "Zerato" together will deal 7000 damage and there still a Normal Summon.

Traditional Format

  • Use "Painful Choice" to quickly load the Graveyard with 4 different DARK monsters to make it easier to Tribute Summon this card.
