Majin Buus Bicycle Kick Fusion Saga
Uncommon - #59
Physical Combat

Power: Physical attack doing +5 power stages of damage. If successful, lower your opponent's anger 2 levels, and if he has 0 anger, lower his Main Personality 1 personality level.

This is an ok card. Nothing too great. It will scare anger decks a bit, but that really should be it.

It is a big physical attack, but now there are a lot bigger ones. If you plan on using this to combat anger decks, Id look elsewhere. There are much better options out there. That and anger doesnt do a lot right now. Apocalyptic Battle is where Id go. The two anger is nothing; the lowering one level hurts. Lowering to level 1 is worse. You can save yourself a Supreme Kais Ki Push. But honestly, I dont think it is worth a spot in your deck. There are much better physical attacks with better if successful effects, and much better ways to deal with anger.

Standard: 1.5 out of 5.0 (deal with anger)
Tuff Enuff: 1.3 out of 5.0
Sealed: 2.9 out of 5.0 (not bad here, can stall some decks)

Majin Buu's Bicycle kick

A physical for +5 is always nice. If successful, lower their anger 2 if successful and if they have 0 anger they lose a personality level. Pretty decent for an uncommon. Its okay for heros since they dont have a Cells Threatening position yet. And its still a pretty big attack for an uncommon. Blue decks get more +5 physicals in this set and heres another card to add in. Hm yeah thats about it.

Rating 2.5

Friday - Majin Buu's Bicycle kick

This is a pretty good card. If you have a physical beatdown deck, it may be wise to run one of these in it. A physical for +5 before modifiers is good as it is, but it also lowers your opponents anger 2. And after that, if
they are at 0 anger, they lose a personality level. This is very good,
because if your opponent has 2 or less anger when you perform this attack, they can say goodbye to a personality level. Too bad the text is "if
Successful". Of course, if you are running a red physical beatdown deck
and you use REd Torso Chop before this, and they have 2 or less anger, then they will definetly lose a personality level :). But it's still no Blue
Happiness or Cell's Threatening Position :)

Standard: 3.0 (being able to slow down anger decks is helpful..) Tuff ENuff: 3.3 (A beefy attack, and a way to keep your opponent down to his
less powerful level after he Aura Clashes, AYTEs, Determination DRills, or
any of those other cards that let them advance personality levels easily)
 
Mewfive Majin Buu's Bicycle Kick

Hmmm... Interesting. +5 stages is not too shabby, even today. But, most decks do not rely on going up levels. Most decks that do use Anger will gain Anger rapidly, and you'll be lucky to have them at 0 anger for more than two phases, unless you have a card attached to them. Some decks also like to use stuff like Aura Clash/AYTE to get to a certain level. This card can affectt those decks because they use very little anger other than those two cards. Anyway, I would not use more than two of this card. Even with its secondary effect, not too many decks will be affected by it.
Standard - 2.4/5.
TE - 2/5.

Majin Buu's Bicycle Kick, #59 from Fusion Saga.

Power: Physical attack doing +5 power stages of damage. If successful, lower your opponent's anger 2 levels, and if he has 0 anger, lower his Main Personality 1 personality level.

I really like this card! There are not too many cards out there that can
lower personality levels, although with Fusion Saga there came a lot more. This card is definitely one of the better ones. This card is most likely going to be used more in Tuff Enuff where people use Are You Tuff Enuff??? and Aura Clashes like crazy. Besides the fact this card has the possibility to lower your opponents personality level, it is also a physical attack for +5, which is not bad at all.

The only downsides to this card is that to lower your opponents personality level this attack has to be succesful and your opponent has to be at 0 anger, after you lower it 2.

(By the way, I added 4 of this card to my Red Majin Buu deck that got me
into Top 64!)

Ratings:

Regular - 3.5 (a good physical with a good if succesful effect, though not
too many decks will be above level 1 anyway)

Tuff Enuff - 4.25 (A nice freestyle card that you can add to any physical
beatdown deck; a lot of decks rely on their high levels in tuff enuff, use
this card to bring them back down)

Sealed deck - 2.5 (This card will mainly just be used for a physical attack
for +5)
