D.D. Crazy Beast/Dimension Beast:
Eff: A monster destroyed by this card in battle is removed from play.
Negates "when sent to the Graveyard" Effects
Attacks under GB and MoP
Searchable By WotBF, Sangan, Last Will and Giant Rat
Kind of weak - Only having 1400/1400 is the only thing I can see being negative.
Not much, but being able to destroy Sinister Serpent for good and stopping Sangan, WotBF, Mystic Tomato and other Effects can be useful.
I would assume that D.D. stands for either Dark or Different Dimension/Dimensional, Edo had him translated to Twighlight Zone Beast and I've even seen it listed as Insane Beast, so Different Dimension Crazy Beast sound alright I guess.
The whole purpose of this Monster is to negate Effect that activate "when this card is sent to the Graveyard" or "when your Monster is sent to the Graveyard". The most popular of these cards include WotBF, Sangan, Mystic Tomato, Newdoria, Nimble Momonga and it can even disrupt the Sinister Serpent cycle. The only Trap often played that D.D.CB stops is Michizure, but personally I only see it used once a month or less. He also works well with or against Fiber Jar, being able to remove certain Monsters then resetting the Field/Hand/Graveyard can leave your opponent as many options as they started.
Just being able to attack WotBF and not have your opponent search out Jinzo or another strong Monster can help out enough, but with only 1400 ATK & DEF he really only fits in GB/MoP or Clown Control Decks unless you boost him enough to take out big Monsters. Since most Beatdowns don't play Monster under 1800 ATK except for maybe Don Zaloog and tech Monsters like Cyber Jar and the searchers, this guy probably won't be used that often.
He's basically a shortened version of Lesser Fiend and I'm sure we all know how much he isn't used, but D.D.CB can be an alternative to using Banisher, but he'll still never amount to Kycoo. If you do run Gravity Binds or Messenger Of Peaces for any reason this Monster may help out, for any other Decks... he wouldn't last long enough to serve any good use.
ArtWork: 2.5 - Hey! He's snagging a Second Goblin(MFC-13)/Goblin Manager(306-015) and removing him from this dimension. Where he's bringing him? Who knows? But I bet he's going to eat him.
D.D. Crazy Beast
A monster destroyed by this card in battle is removed from play.
D.D. Crazy Beast is a neat card and probably a little overlooked.
Removing your opponent's monsters from play is a good thing. Getting rid of Witch, Sangan, Sinister Serpent, Mystic Tomato etc means your opponent will not get the effect from any of these monsters. Being searchable by Witch, Sangan and Giant Rat makes it fairly easy to get onto the field. Getting underneath both Gravity Bind and Messenger of Peace makes for a lot of versatility. 1400 ATK isn't awesome but it gets rid of many utility monsters and 1400 DEF means Mystic Tomato and Don Zaloog can't kill it while in Defense Position. This monster was made to crush Weenie Monsters.
There really isn't anything bad about this monster other than that 1400 ATK means all the standard beatsticks will run over this monster. This is also probably something you don't want your opponent Reborning on you since it seems to always come at the most inopportune time (like when you're both topdecking and all you have is Sinister Serpent).
Anyways, this is a pretty decent card. This can help many decks and would work especially well in a Weenie Rush or Earth Deck.
