• "Predaplant Chlamydosundew" can be used to allow this card to be Fusion Summoned by using an opponent's monster with a Predator Counter.
  • Since DARK is an extremely popular attribute among monsters, this is one of the easiest cards to summon with "Super Polymerization".
  • Appropriately, this card is particularly useful against "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon", as it can copy that monster's effect and possibly cause an OTK, which can be backed up if "Starving Venom" was Fusion Summoned on this turn, allowing it to gain a opponent monster's ATK.
    • You can use "Shien's Spy" to give "Odd-Eyes" to your opponent, and beat 5600 damage into your opponent.
  • After Fusion Summoning this card, destroy it with "Destruct Potion", and use "Starving Venom's" effect to destroy your opponent's Special Summoned monsters, with the added benefit of gaining at least 2800 LP.
  • By Summoning either "Grinder Golem" or "Lava Golem" on an earlier turn, this monster's ATK can be boosted by 3000.
  • You can use the effect of "Darklon" to make all your monsters become eligible Fusion Materials for this card.

Traditional Format

  • "Makyura the Destructor" is an excellent Fusion Material for this card, since it enables Trap cards to be activated from the hand for the turn.
  • Special Summon "Level Eater" by decreasing a DARK monster's Level, and use both monsters to summon this card.
  • If this Fusion Summoned card is destroyed by the Flip effect of "Cyber Jar", this card's effect can be used to destroy the opponent's new monsters.
  • In a Dragon Deck, select this card when you activate "Last Turn". If it is destroyed, your opponent's Special Summoned Monsters will be destroyed along with it. "Keeper of the Shrine's" effect can be chained to this card's, leaving you as the sole player controlling Monsters.
