Ew. Just...ew.

This one falls under that so very broad category of "we already have better cards".

For your Tribute (or your A Legendary Ocean), you get a 2100 (or 2300) monster that can tribute one of two weak cards to either destroy monsters or S/Ts. Without ALO, Cyber Dragon just suicides into it; with ALO, it takes a Monarch or a removal card to get rid of this thing.

The problem is it requires very specific tribute fodder, unlike Cannon Soldier who can launch anything. If they would make a card with the same stats that would let you tribute/discard any one card to destroy any one card, and NOT give it a ridiculous summoning requirement (XYZ), it might see some play. But that's not the case here, and this guy blows chunks.

1/5 all
 

Dark Paladin
Orca Mega-Fortress of Darkness
Level 5
2100-1000
Water-Sea Serpant

Offer 1 "Torpedo Fish" on your side of the field as a tribute to destroy one monster on the field. Offer 1 "Cannonball Spearfish" to destroy one magic or trap card on the field.

Here's a decent monster for those of you who run A Legendary Ocean type decks. Orca Mega-Fortress of Darkness becomes a 2300 attack Level 4 monster under ALO, which isn't too bad. Not as good as some other water monsters, but still not bad.

Now, Orca likes to be fairly destructive. By tributing a Torpedo Fish, you can destroy one of your opponents monsters. Furthermore, by tributing a Cannonball Spearfish to destroy one Magic or Trap card on the field.

That's cool that it says destroy one on the field, so if you needed to destroy one of yours for some reason, you could, like Dark Coffin or something...?

Ratings:

Traditional ALO: 3.35/5
Advanced ALO: 3.85/5

Art: 4/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
 
Rj Ohh! Look at this! Its a sea serpent!

Too bad its one of the only ones, damn UDE/Konami ;p.

Cards like these make me sick. Its said because with an effect like that, this card kinda has potential it would seem, but many things are holding it back, including its 5 star status.

If they would release one HUGE set (Say, 300 total cards 0_o), all supporting differnt themes, such as Rock, Sea Serpent, Dragon (Good dragon support ;/), and Dinosaur. Maybe make good searchers, Pyramid turtle like.
But for all the different types. That would be awesome, and I would totally be into running a sea serpent deck.

Sadly, the people that make Yugioh cards don't care about the players, just the money ;[.

1/5 all formats.

Orca Mega-Fortress of Darkness

This is a monster that could have had potential is the tribute monsters weren’t so sub - par, however I do find the idea of shooting fish at the enemy hilarious. Ones a 1000/1000 that cant be affected by spells with an Umi on, and the other is exactly the same.

This is a card I do like, as I’ve always had a fixation with Killer whales, and whales in general. I’d love to see a good deck built around this, mother grizzly’s and ALO, not to mention Salvage. Water decks have a lot going for them, and many different variations. Who knows, this one might be worth a try.

Traditional : 1/5 Not going to happen

Advanced : 3/5 There’s potential.
