- This card can be used as an alternative to "Cyber Dragon" for the purposes of tribute fodder or a quick Synchro Summon. Since you will usually summon this when you have less cards on the field than your opponent, you may wish to Synchro Summon "Black Rose Dragon" to clear the field.
- Dragon Decks often require tribute fodder, and using this card (rather than "Cyber Dragon") allows you to use "Solidarity" or other Dragon support cards:
- If you special summon this card, then activate "A Wingbeat of Giant Dragon", you can simply special summon it again after it returns to your hand.
- This card will work well with "Strong Wind Dragon", giving it an automatic ATK increase of 1000 after you tribute "Vice Dragon".
- You can also Tribute it for "Tiger Dragon" so you can use "Tiger Dragon's" effect
- Its effect also allows it to dodge "Bottomless Trap Hole". You can then use "A Wingbeat of Giant Dragon" or "Stamping Destruction" to destroy your opponent's trap(s) before Synchro or tribute summoning a more powerful monster.
- This cards works well with "Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon" by filling in the need for a Dragon to be banished to Special Summon "Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon" if you don't have another lower level Dragon to normal summon. If "Vice Dragon" is used this way, it also saves you a Normal Summon.
- If you Special Summon this card and use "Inferno Reckless Summon", you can Special Summon another two copies of it from your Deck or Graveyard.
