• You can easily Summon this card if you have Synchro Summoned "Majestic Star Dragon". Since "Majestic Star" returns back to the Extra Deck during the End Phase, you can activate "Synchro Change" to banish it and Special Summon this card in return. Although this costs not activating its effect during that turn and Summoning back "Stardust Dragon" from the GY.
  • This card can be easily Summoned in one turn using only 2 cards if "Formula Synchron" is already in your GY. Special Summon "Cyber Dragon", "Oracle of the Sun" or "Vice Dragon", from your hand, then Normal Summon "Junk Synchron" and use its effect to revive "Formula Synchron". Then, using "Junk" and the Level 5 monster, Synchro Summon "Stardust Dragon". Finally, tune "Formula" and "Stardust" to Summon this card. You can also use "Instant Fusion" to provide the Level 5 monster.
    • If you have "Stardust Xiaolong" and one Level 1 Tuner in your GY, you can use the above combo. Special Summon the Level 1 Tuner with "Junk". Then, when "Stardust" is Summoned, you can Special Summon "Xiaolong" from the GY and Synchro with the Level 1 Tuner for "Formula".
  • Equip this card with "Silver Wing" to make this card extremely powerful, together with its own negation ability.
  • You can prevent your opponent from banishing this card by using "Imperial Iron Wall", making this card much harder to get rid of. But note that you will not be able to use this card to negate attacks if you do so.
  • You can create an OTK with this card providing your opponent has no monsters and you pick up at least 3 Tuner monsters. Use cards like "Plaguespreader Zombie" to Top-Deck Tuner monsters from your hand.
  • When you have excavated enough Tuner monsters, equip "Shooting Star Bow - Ceal" to deal enough direct damage to your opponent, leading to an OTK
    • Use the Tuner monsters in your GY to power up this card again with "Battle Tuned".
  • "Zero Force" can weaken your opponent's monsters to protect you in the event your opponent's other monsters are more powerful than your current ones.


Note: due to new rules and the addition of Main Monster Zone and the Extra Monster Zone, the current tips for Summon this card are out of date. But, it can be still used in videogames.

  • Activate "One for One", by discarding "Dandylion", to Special Summon "Spore" while two "Fluff Tokens" appear. Then Normal Summon a Level 3 or 4 non-Tuner. Tune "Spore" with "Fluff Token" to Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron". Special Summon "Spore" with its effect and by banishing "Dandylion"; "Spore" becomes Level 4. Tune "Spore" with the Level 4 monster or "Spore" with the Level 3 monster and the last "Fluff Token" to Synchro Summon "Stardust Dragon". Then, Synchro Summon this card.
  • Activate "One for One", by discarding "Gigaplant" or another level 6 Plant monster, to Special Summon "Spore". Then Normal Summon "Evil Thorn", and Tribute it to Special Summon two more from the Deck. Tune "Spore" with "Evil Thorn" to Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron". Special Summon "Spore" with its effect and by banishing "Gigaplant", or the Level 6 monster; "Spore" becomes Level 7. Tune "Spore" with the other "Evil Thorn" to Synchro Summon "Stardust Dragon". Then, Synchro Summon this card.
  • "Synchro Change" and "Starlight Road" can quickly Summon "Stardust Dragon", making this card's Summoning fairly easier.
  • You can easily Synchro Summon this monster in a "Quickdraw Dandywarrior" Deck. You need to have a "Lonefire Blossom" on the field along with a "Dandylion". Tribute "Lonefire" and Special Summon another "Lonefire". After, Tribute "Dandylion" by the effect of "Lonefire" and Special Summon "Spore". The effect of "Dandylion" will Special Summon 2 "Fluff Tokens". Tune "Spore" with a "Fluff Token" to Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron". Then, use the effect of "Spore" banishing a "Lonefire" from your GY. "Spore" will become Level 4. Tune "Spore" along with "Lonefire" and the "Fluff Token" to Synchro Summon "Stardust Dragon". Last, tune "Formula" with "Stardust" to Synchro Summon this card.
  • You can easily Summon this card with just three cards in your hand "Debris Dragon", "One for One" and "Dandylion". Activate "One for One", discard "Dandylion", Special Summon a Level 1 Tuner and the two "Fluff Tokens". Tune one "Fluff Token" with the Level 1 Tuner to Summon "Formula Synchron". Next, Normal Summon "Debris Dragon", then Special Summon "Dandylion". Now tune "Dandylion", "Debris Dragon" and the remaining "Fluff Token" to Summon "Stardust Dragon". Special Summon two "Fluff Tokens" and tune "Stardust" with "Formula" to get "Shooting Star Dragon". Because of the drawing effect of "Formula" you technically only used two cards to Summon "Shooting Star" and two "Fluff Tokens".
  • Have at least one "Monarch" monster on the field other than "Zaborg the Thunder Monarch". Special Summon "Level Eater" from your GY by lowering the Level of "Monarch" by 1, then Normal Summon "Junk Synchron" to bring back a Level 1 Tuner. You can tune "Junk" with the "Monarch" to Summon "Stardust Dragon", then tune the Level 1 Tuner with "Level Eater" to Summon "Formula Synchron".
  • This card can be easily to Synchro Summoned by the effect of "Star Siphon": Reduce the Level of a newly Summon Synchro Monster to 1, then Summon a Tuner Synchro Monster and another Synchro Monster whose combine Level equal to 11. For example, "Formula Synchron" / "Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile" and a Level 9 Synchro Monster, "Tatsunoko" and a Level 8 Synchro Monster etc. In addition, you now have a high Level tTken that can easily be used for Synchro Summon and restart the combo again.
  • Having "Quickdraw Synchron", "Debris Dragon", "Dandylion", "Glow-Up Bulb" in your hand can summon this card in one turn. Discard "Dandylion" to special summon "Quickdraw Synchron" then using one of your two fluff tokens, summon "Drill Warrior". Use its effect to discard "Glow-up Blub" and banish it. Summon "Debris Dragon" and special summon "Dandylion" then summon "Stardust Dragon". Using "Glow-up Bulb" mill the top card of your deck to special summon it. You have two "Fluff Tokens" again at this point. Use one to summon "Formula Synchron", then summon Shooting Star Dragon.


  • Use "Skill Drain" to negate this card's effect and then use destruction cards.
  • This card bears the same weakness as cards with similar self-banishing effects: namely, by using "Burial from a Different Dimension" (or cards with similar effects) once this card has been banished by its own effect. You will force this card into the GY and prevent its return to the field.

Traditional Format

  • You can Synchro Summon this card easily with "Debris Dragon" and "Doppelwarrior" in your hand, and one "Glow-Up Bulb" in your GY. Normal Summon "Debris", then use its effect to Special Summon "Glow-Up" from your GY, then Special Summon "Doppelwarrior" from your hand. Tune "Debris" and "Doppelwarrior" to Synchro Summon any Level 6 Dragon Synchro Monster. Special Summon 2 "Doppel Tokens". Tune "Glow-up" with one "Doppel Token" to Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron". Special Summon "Glow-Up" from your GY via its effect. Tune "Glow-up" with one "Doppel Token" to Synchro Summon another "Formula". Tune one "Formula" with the Level 6 Dragon Synchro Monster to Synchro Summon "Stardust Dragon". Tune the other "Formula" with "Stardust" to Summon this card.
  • If you are running a "Dragunity" Deck, you may also use the following steps. In your hand, you should have the following: "Dragunity Arma Mystletainn", "Dragunity Phalanx", "Unknown Synchron", "Stardust Xiaolong" and "Dragon Ravine". Be assured that before you do this, your opponent has a monster. First in any order, Special Summon "Unknown" and activate "Ravine". Second, using the effect of "Ravine", discard "Xiaolong" to take any "Dragunity" card. Third, Normal Summon "Phalanx", then Tribute it to Special Summon "Mystletainn". Using the effect of "Mystletainn", equip "Phalanx" from your GY, so it will be Special Summoned. Then, tune "Phalanx" and "Mystletainn" to Synchro Summon "Stardust Dragon". Since "Stardust" have been Synchro Summoned, "Xiaolong" will be Special Summoned due to its effect. Now, tune "Unknown" with "Xiaolong" to Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron". And lastly, tune "Formula" with "Stardust" to Synchro Summon this card.
