They even were nice enough to DATE it. I think this also confirms Star Strike Blast as a a set by proxy. I swear Stardust and his forms get MORE AND MORE Freeza like. First Freeza as a dragon, then Freeza as a Panzer Dragon, then Freeza crossbred with Tekkaman Blade or an Orbital Frame, now Freeza's Final Form 2 as a Dragon with Optimus Prime's face. Btw - LeArk of DMC and Janime gave a translation on Formula Synchron as well:

  • フォーミュラ・シンクロン 光 ☆2 機械 シンクロ/チューナー 200/1500

チューナー+チューナー以外のモンスター1体以上 1ターンに1度、自分のデッキからカードを1枚ドローすることができる。

  • Foomyura Shinkuron (Formula Synchron)
  • 2 Stars/LIGHT/Machine-Type - Synchro/Tuner
  • 200 ATK/1500 DEF
  • 1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Monsters.
  • Once per turn, you can draw 1 card.

This ALSO confirms that it IS indeed Shooting Star Dragon in Believe in Nexus that the picture is straight from it (at the moment Stardust is transformed). Also, we know it's a Level 10 seeing as Stardust is 8 and Formula is 2. So can we get to removing all these "unconfirmed" blocks on the articles (especially Star Strike Blast)?

Thanks for confirmation.FredCat100 21:19, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

as a stardust- red dragon archfiend fusion

Ok, it's strongly inferred that this card is related to Stardust Dragon, but how many people think that this is a fusion of that and Red Dragon Archfiend or another dragon?--Dragonking 02:02, April 5, 2010 (UTC) well i had a thought of a fusion like this but i foresaw a different name unfortunately i forgot that name but just think if this is the case. what its effect will be like. Kazisaki 21:04, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

I was thinkin of this before , If Its a Fusion of "Stardust Dragon" and "Red Dragon Archfiend" that will be Lovely..... Instead of "Shooting Star Dragon" I would call it "Red Star Dragon" or ? But what may really happen is Stardust dragon and Red dragon archfiend probably get new modes, Maybe with a Spell card this time...Who knows? It will have a Deeezed Effect? --LetsGoDragons 02:15, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Guess it doesn't matter, now that we know this is a synchro monster.--Dragonking 11:19, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

There is no way shooting star dragon would be or can be a fusion of red-dragon arcnfiend and stardust dragon just no way so you can get that crazy idea out of your head.

I don't think it's an Accel Synchro....

It's because Accel Synchros a for anime only cards just like they did for Dark Synchros...

Maybe if they are Accel Synchros in anime, in the OCG they will become just Synchros again...Without returning them to the Extra Deck again like Majestics....--Don't talk the talk if you can't walk the walk...kapish~? 13:09, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Well the Dark Synchros have just come out as normal synchros. And the dark tuners are litterally Dark attribute tuners...they just did away with the whole negative level, which I think would have been cool to have. But our Accel Synchros, I'm pretty sure, will stay true. The cards tend to follow the anime now and if that's what's big, then that's what we'll see in upcoming sets. User:Jesse.Anderson 18:04, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

I think Accel Synchros will be somekind of Fusion monster which can only be summoned by contact fusion between two Synchro monster with each particular level. for it's colour, it can be purple but it's nice to see it white. Neos lover 10:37, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Accel Synchros are really just plain Synchro Monsters. They probbably just call Accel Synchro because of it's emence power. User:Elemental Hero Kid Neos

Accel Synchro? i think not...

Konami is trying everything to make the game less complicated. As you see, they didn't release dark synchros. Instead, they released them as regular synchro monsters.

Because of this, i highlly doubt that accel synchro monsters will ever make their way into the TCG\OCG. I believe that this will continue to be an anime exclusive type.

I very well could see Shooting Star Dragon as a Synchrofusion.

TwosidedDragon 18:27, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

accel synchro is not complicated at all. its a specific tuner w/ a specific synchro...what the hek is so complicated. Sbaldasari 20:34, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

I have MORE proof: Accel Synchros won't be made because in order to do something in your opponents turn it must have a speed spell of 2 or higher but since when has a summon had a speed spell? Blaze Pyro 11:47, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

  • A: You seem to have a very gross misconception of the word "proof." Exactly what do they learn in school now? B: That's exactly right, effects generally go on chain, but you are very much twisting something that has nothing to do Accel Synchro to justify your own bias. What you have is a thought in your own head that you feel makes an suitable argument or point of debate. Not even close to proof. Effects have speeds, since when is a summon an effect? Game mechanics still supersede everything else (which is why many things still don't work as worded because of things like Damage Step rule). If Konami wants us to have Accel Synchro, WE WILL HAVE IT REGARDLESS OF WHO LIKES OR DISLIKES IT. It's a simple matter of it being a condition on the cards themselves. Period. Just like Contact Fusion isn't an effect, just a special condition of certain Fusions. So what is so hard for people to grasp to have Synchros with condition text placed on them. ShinobiPhoenix 14:48, May 1, 2010 (UTC)
    • It is proof because Accel synchros contradict Yu-Gi-Oh rulings meaning that they can't be made in to useable cards. Also who said I went to school and children are getting more and more intelligent so much more that standards are changing. Anyway I never said a summon was an effect I was saying the opposite; that a summon has no speed spell so it can't be done manually in your opponents turn (i.e. normal summon or synchro summon or contact fuse (at least without another card's effect that can be done in your opponents turn). Full Stop. Blaze Pyro 15:15, May 1, 2010 (UTC)
    • Contradict the rules as dictated by... who? Synchros themselves already go against the rules and are a NEW rule (or could tokens be SENT to the Graveyard before? (sarcasm)), so what exactly is your point? It's not proof in any way, it's not even a debate, it's just you fashioning whatever makes you feel satisfied even and will probably be that way even after it's proven otherwise. It's funny you bring up that standards are CHANGING and yet in a very hypocritical fashion say that Accel Synchros are impossible right now. Things can change... what a strange concept. No, you didn't say it was an effect, you said they have no Speed, EFFECTS HAVE A SPEED, that is why things that ARE in fact summoned during opponent's turns do so on the chain. The effects of summoning them, not the summoning itself. If one wants something to work, they just word it to work. Before it was a rule that you needed Fusion cards to actually pull out a Fusion, that changed. Before, you couldn't activate Magic on your opponent's turn, that changed. Before, everything on a card was just an effect or flavor text, that was changed and now some things are clarified as conditions for added rules. Let's not even get started on the creation of PRIORITY because we all know didn't even exist until Chaos. Before you couldn't send Tokens directly to the Graveyard if that is where they had to go, THAT WAS CHANGED WITH SYNCHROS and JUST FOR SYNCHROS. When it becomes explained, we won't even have a choice in the matter. Whether we get it or ANYTHING AT ALL in the future just the same as it has it been, it's on Konami's whelm of whether they think we can figure it out without... oh I don't know, bitching about it too much because some people don't grasp or cope with change too much. It's not about can be done for them, it's their game and they will add in whatever the bloody hell they want, it's about do the trust us to get it (unfortunately, it's amazing how lazy people are about a simple matter of subtraction, but negative numbers were just too much). You'll simply say it was slapped into the rules or whatever helps you cope. I just fail to see how you think you can dictate what Konami feels like doing or saying or acting on. Against the rules. HA. Rules only apply to what exist and already has rules slapped on it, but as long as Konami runs the game, even that doesn't stop them from laying down the mighty KSS Hammer. Even Wizards of the Coast live by the Golden Rule in writing. "The card is always right." I'm pretty sure that if the game that came first and still keeps going with far more rules than YGO could even hope to survive under can say that with a straight face, Konami isn't too far an apple from the tree. ShinobiPhoenix 16:03, May 1, 2010 (UTC)
      • I could argue that Dark Synchros could change the rules, I said I could. Again a summon isn't an effect it's a summon but I suppose they could change the rules to allow it. Although what you said about me having a thought in my head that I believe, could also be said about you, that you believe Accel Synchros are going to be made and that is a figmnet of your imagination. If they do make Accel Synchros I won't carry on believing that they can't be used but I will just be a little irritated. I don't want this to become an argument about us when this is supposed to be about Shooting Star Dragon so no matter what you post, whether I can argue back or not I won't post anything more here.

(N.B. I posted this before the last four posts above this) I just wrote the thing above and then I thought it could be the effect of a synchro monster: you can send this card and one face-up synchro monster you control to the graveyard to special summon a synchro monster from your Extra Deck whose level is equal to the total level of the sent monsters. This summon is treated as a synchro summon. You can activate this effect during your opponent's turn. But this still wouldn't avoid the infinity monsters! Blaze Pyro 11:47, May 1, 2010 (UTC)


It says it is not a level 12, it is a level 10, and it may be easily summoned with Formula Synchron and Stardust, most likely Accel Synchro.

How Yusei obtained it (and more from 107)

To make this easy, I will copy paste from the 107 Discussion Page:

" Unlike how Janime bitched about thinking it would happen, Yusei does NOT in fact just pull the card out his ass. He does however receive the card from God... himself. Not the Crimson Dragon. GET THIS... As Yusei gained the speed, a STONE tablet fell. You would THINK it was Jose's M.E.I. IT WASN'T. IT WAS THE STONE TABLET OF SHOOTING STAR DRAGON, which falls somewhere FAR from Neo Domino in another desert (and Yusei's new speed gets him there easily). Upon touching the tablet, he's transported once again to the room of the "God Machine Magatama." But instead of all scary, he SPEAKS to Yusei and actually sounds benevolent. After a few words, he GIVES SHOOTING STAR DRAGON to him (the physical card is placed right in his hands which later he slips into his deck). After a few other words, "Godtama" disappears and sends Yusei back to the crater. "

To put it simply, it's one of the few cards you actually see him obtain rather than just be used or appear in his Deck (a great rarity to see in YGO, only a few cards you see obtained, like Hane Kuriboh to Judai). ShinobiPhoenix 10:42, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

    • Instead of waiting for a clear raw to show up I could rip, Shriek showed me the screenshots he had made (he hadn't checked the episode yet to know the dragon was shown, but checked when I brought it up to him). So courtesy of Shriek:

Incidentally, they are still teasing us, as any attempt at seeing the effect text is heavily thwarted on both the stone tablet (and the name isn't even in Japanese, or any language) and the physical card in Yusei's hand. Even the Attribute is still unknown because the symbol is not any used in the game (and not even close to looking like the Wind one). ShinobiPhoenix 12:17, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

Shooting Star or Formula Synchron

I was watching the subbed again, and I realized it's still not actually confirmed that Zone gave Shooting Star to Yusei. No doubt it was to USE it, but all we see is a white card and Zone says it was "the REQUIREMENT" for Clear Mind, or simply put, the Accel Synchro. The requirement for a Accel Synchro is a Synchro/Tuner which Yusei hasn't had until now and let's face it, he has to get BOTH cards. I'm thinking the card he was given was actually Formula Synchron. ShinobiPhoenix 13:59, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

  • No its Shooting Star Dragon alright. Yusei probably got Formula Synchron sometime after he first met Bruno as Dark Glass. Plus, Accel Synchro and Clear Mind aren't the same. Clear Mind is the ability to control Momentum with the human heart, which is needed for Accel Synchro.

VolticWind 17:43, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • Actually, Zone said quite bluntly "That is Clear Mind's requirement. A card that has the possibility of Accel Synchro." There's no reason that Accel Synchro isn't one of the forms OF control over Momentum, but that doesn't change the fact of the statement made in favor of Formula Synchron being the card given. I don't know about you, but in my almost 28 years old speaking the English language, "possibility" and the actual thing you are trying to accomplish are not the same thing or it wouldn't be a possibility, now would it?. Still, I expect you have PROOF of what you said, but logic is on the other side. If he had Formula Synchron before, he would have used it by now. Besides, one might want to take stock in the fact that in Shooting Star's premiere episode, Formula Synchron is the Card of the Week, adding some importance to him (as well as preventing ANYONE from reading off or seeing Shooting Star Dragon anytime before next week. ShinobiPhoenix 18:05, May 5, 2010 (UTC)
  • Indeed, but if that's only Formula Synchron he achieved, then how does he have that card, Shooting Star Dragon, to Accel Synchro Summoning? So far I know is, that he get SHOOTING STAR DRAGON from the stone that fell from the sky, not FORMULA SYNCHRON. --FredCat100 18:11, May 5, 2010 (UTC)
    • That's just the standard question of the ages in ANY of Yu-Gi-Oh. Do you get mad at EVERY card they don't give a detailed explanation about? Where did Dragoequites come from? Or any of the still unexplained, never-to-be-explained cards in the entirety of YGO? I choose to believe that God wouldn't just GIVE him the card like that, he would still have to earn it the first time but he WOULD give him the final key for it and go the rest himself. It took him this long just to even get the speed and focus required for it, he's not going to get a "handlead" now. ShinobiPhoenix 18:28, May 5, 2010 (UTC)
      • In my personal canon, it seems like Yusei got SSD from the tablet like Placido and Lucciano got Wisel and Skiel and then went to see Zone to get Formula, but that's just me. --Blackstone Dresden 03:28, May 11, 2010 (UTC)

It's effect

Shooting Star Dragon's effect is it also negate effect or could it be something else?

It is most likely a ramped-up version of Stardust's effect and another effect to counter Synchro Killers. VolticWind 17:04, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

Keyhole TV picked...

...a truly fine day NOT to work. I mean seriously, it's like more effort at keeping that damn dragon a secret just a little longer. Milking it for all it's worth. Suddenly none of my streaming options works today. Then watch as it probably does anyway AFTER the episode goes off. ShinobiPhoenix 09:04, May 12, 2010 (UTC)

  • UPDATE: I did at least catch what I could with another program. Yusei did use at least 2 new cards. One that had Necromancer in the name, but I couldn't catch it all due to the glitching in the program and one called Rescue Warrior that he used to attack ME Wisel Infinity with that retrieved Stardust for him. Also can confirm ANOTHER Insert Song called "Clear Mind" (name confirmed from the credits) that plays for most of the sequence before and during the summon of Shooting Star. I can also finally confirm the white card given to him by Zone was Shooting Star, so I will change those pages accordingly. Once someone gets some decent screenshots, the effect will be easily read so long as it wasn't obscured. Even with the program I was using, you could see the text without anything obstructing like a thumb or hand, but it was a LOT of text. Unfortunately, that's all I could get on memory alone and I missed the first 12 minutes getting a new stream option. I will post my notes from my other forum here.
  1. Shooting Star WAS the card given to Yusei by Zone... HOWEVER even Yusei didn't truly know if that was true as the card never came into focus for him until he finally was going to summon it.
  2. Placido is a cheating fuck... oh wait, that's not a secret, but when you make a TORNADO to destroy the city and keep Yusei from beating him, you are truly a cheating fuck.
  3. To anyone who can get the screenshot, Shooting Star's stats and effect should be well readable. I unfortunately couldn't even catch the ATK stat reveal when it was summoned as the program decided to glitch there, so I only heard the "warping beep" sound effect that plays when a monster is summoned and stat is shown. It was a LOT of text on the card though.
  4. Aki ends up having to rescue Haruka from the storm without her powers (maybe she's being tested as she has been dependent on her powers for years, even abused them).
  5. Next week, the Emperors gets in your face, but it looks like they will at least explain themselves directly (to Yusei and perhaps the rest).
  6. Yusei uses (to my knownledge) at least 2 new monsters. One I missed the summon of called (something) Necromancer. From the effect, he used it to summon back Formula Synchron. He also used a card called "Rescue Warrior" which he used to attack ME Wisel and when it was killed, it somehow retrieved Stardust Dragon from Wisel's grasp.
  7. I can't really confirm this, it might have just been Yusei not trying it or not feeling confident enough to NOT screw up again, but he only tried the Accel Synchro this time on Placido's turn, but that doesn't CONFIRM that you can only do it on your opponent's turn. After all, Bruno was going to do it on his turn as well and he did it alone before entering the Battle Royale with Yusei against the Diablos Army.
  8. Lastly we have ANOTHER INSERT SONG. A new one called "CLEAR MIND" as said in the credits. It plays from before Yusei actually does the summon (when focusing and everyone is cheering him on) all the way until the end of the episode. Incidentally, for the long wait on even seeing the dragon, the summon was definitely worth it, but moreso because the song makes it TRULY dramatic and heartpounding. ShinobiPhoenix 10:08, May 12, 2010 (UTC)

Shooting Stars Effects

After reading the effect, if it is its confirmed as its anime effect, how is it supposed to counter the Machine Emperors ability to absorb synchro monsters? I get the part about being synchro summoned on the opponents turn but after that there's nothing to stop its from being absorbed again.

machine emperors are based on parts and combining attack points but with one part is destroyed if it has ATK machine emperors ATK is reduced. But shooting star dragons first effect is you pick up 5 cards from your deck and you attack as many times according to the number of tuner monsters you picked up out of the 5 cards from your deck then you put them back on top. but the effect can only activate during your battle phase. so in conclusion the affect can work but it depends on luck and you can reduce its attack and if you have another monster with more attack and eliminate machine emperor and the parts wasted there effect. sorry if you dont understand what iam saying

Also, since you can synch during opponent's turn, you can due this to avoid the targeting of Machine Emperors effect, so it will miss its target and the effect will disappear, don't forget, it's a once per turn absorbtion, so yeah. Plus the whole multipe attacks ability also helps. If he gets rid of every part of one limb, then its effect disappears.


ALL THE INFO ON THE PAGE DISAPPEARED!!!! —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) 08:22, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Please don't type in all capitals. I'm not sure what you're seeing. I've looked at the page history and the page wasn't ever blanked. -- Deltaneos (talk) 08:45, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

that confused me too. what's more confusing is that it didn't completely disappear, the picture reverted to the w jump scan and the effect and attribute were removed as well as the atk and def points. And now the page is back to normal. very strange...

Shooting Star Dragon = The COOLEST Dragon-Type Monster in the Game!! Along with Jack's Scar-Red Nova Dragon!! XD

This Dragon-Type Monster card is the most sweetest Dragon I've ever seen in the game so far! I am definitely gonna add it to my Deck and maybe Jack's new Dragon too.--Red-Eyes Black Dragon 21:59, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Coincidence much?

"Shooting Star"... "Shooting Star Dragon." Both have something to do with"Stardust Dragon."

What if there are no tuners?

05:00, June 4, 2010 (UTC) When you activate SSD's first effect, what will happen if there are no tuner monsters in the top 5 cards of the deck? Does that mean SSD cannot attack during that turn?

Yes, Stardust cannot attack that turn. Ascriptmaster 18:21, June 4, 2010 (UTC)

i eanted to know if it can attack even if there is no tuner in the first 5 top cards of my deck.thanks wikia

(in your opponent's turn)

  • ^^^I disagree, since Formula Synchron only allows you to Synchro summon during the opponent's Main Phase, not battle phase.

Does anyone have Proof that this will be an "Illegal" Card when it is released

I'm just curious as to why people are saying that it will be an Illegal Card in the TCG?Altyrell (talkcontribs) 04:47, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

See the History page or User_talk:Falzar_FZ#Shooting_Star_Dragon... -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 04:47, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

I was just going to say; it's rather strange that this card is already legal in the OCG, yet it may be illegal in the TCG... How strange it is! --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 02:49, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Oh not again! *going to revive it back to normal* I hate those Card Topper so much. --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P. 03:03, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
"Case Topper" is not a separate company who are printing these cards. "Case topper" is an English term used for an item inserted into a box of cards as an incentive for the purchase of the entire box. If these cards are released in the boxes, that definitely means they are made by Konami and not fake. The "This card cannot be used in a Duel" line is included because the cards are larger than usual, so should not be put in a Deck. -- Deltaneos (talk) 22:04, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Shooting Star Dragon

Well for one thing i still don't get why it doesn't say stardust dragon + 1 or more non-tuner monsters

Because Stardust Dragon is the non-tuner monster. Karkashan (talkcontribs) 18:18, December 6, 2010 (UTC) (talk) 20:21, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
