| Can search ANY "[[Yang Zing]]" card upon its Summoning, and due to the wide variety of Levels the "Yang Zing" monsters share, it can function as almost any necessary Tuner, while sending "[[Chiwen, Light of the Yang Zing]]" to the Graveyard to easily activate its revival effect. In addition, if it leaves the field it Special Summons another "Yang Zing" from the Deck, extending the chain of defensive monsters or Synchro/Xyz/Link Materials. Also, unlike the others, neither effect can never miss their timing, leaving few options open for the opponent to stop them from activating. This card is Limited in the OCG.

| The effect is too powerful, [[Card Tips:Destiny HERO - Disk Commander|turning ordinary revival cards into Pot of Greeds]]. There are way too many ways to revive it: [[Call of the Haunted]], [[Monster Reborn]], [[Limit Reverse]], [[Kinka-byo]], [[Graceful Revival]], [[Soul Charge]], [[Oasis of Dragon Souls]], etc. Now, its draw effect can only be used once per duel, and furthermore, cannot be activated in the same turn it's sent to the GY.

It can also escape destruction with its second effect during the opponent's turn, restoring its materials for the next turn to Summon a fresh ABC-Dragon Buster and/or make Rank 4 Xyz Summons. Far outclasses other "[[A-to-Z]]" monsters, whose materials must be banished from the field, cannot be Special Summoned from the Graveyard, use [[Ignition Effects]] that aren't chainable (excluding [[A-to-Z-Dragon Buster Cannon]]), and can only destroy cards (excluding [[VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon]]).

| [[Kozmo Dark Destroyer]]
 
| The boss monster of Kozmo Decks. Can target and destroy any monster on the field when it's Summoned. While ordinarily not something worth writing home about, when paired with the lower level [[Kozmo]] monsters, it essentially becomes a form of pseudo-disruption during your opponent's turn. Quite hard to remove due to its high ATK and invulnerability to targeting effects. Also Special Summons another Kozmo monster from the Deck when it dies, and can even destroy itself to trigger this. Searchable by [[Kozmo Farmgirl]] and [[Kozmo Tincan]], and reusable by [[Kozmotown]] and [[Kozmo Strawman]]. This card is Unlimited in the OCG.

However, the effect has now been errata'd so it can only be used during the opponent's turn, can only be used on an opponent's monster with equal to or less ATK than the opponent's LP, and makes you take damage first, so it can't force tied games.
