Transformers--More than meets the eye!

Sorry, but the whole "Roid" series of monsters strikes me as a poor Transformers rip-off.

Here, we have Ambulance Rescueroid, a good Fusion monster obviously for Roid decks, but falls JUST short of being playable. Why? It all comes down to the fact that this monster has only 2300 attack.

If it had 2400 attack, it could at least suicide with Monarchs, however, 2300 makes it vulnerable, which is sad as I sort of like this card. The effect is decent, but you probably won't get to use it often. Recursion is usually a nice thing however.

When your monster is destroyed, excluding this one, you can Special Summon it back to the Field in defense position. Not bad, but your opponent will be annoyed and tired of this quickly, so destroying the Rescueroid will be in order.

*sigh*

Ratings:

2/5 all around, so close
4/5 Roids...there are better Roid Fusions

Art: 3/5 Anyone call for a medivac?

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Ambulance Thingyroid :
Fusion. Must..not...shout...

Ok, this is a reasonable fusion. Respectible stats, respectible fusion material monsters, and a nice recursion effect ensuring your opponent has to deal with this before anything else you have out. If you want to play fusions, I'd say this would be a choice.
Shame you can't fetch it with Metamorphosis. It also means you can have fun with "comes into play" or "hits the graveyard" effects. The idea of suiciding Sangan suddenly sounds fun (so I trade 500 damage for a card.
Hmmm, sounds reasonable).

Traditional: 3/5

Ambulance Rescueroid

1/5

The "lock" this thing provides is too hard to set up. Drillroid, Steamroid, etc. are superior in every way.

Why is it that we don't have any of Syrus Truesdale's cool Roid Fusion monsters? Outside of Jumbo Drill we have nothing worthwhile to justify running a Roid-Fusion deck, and this card certainly doesn't help.

If Elemental Heroes have taught us anything, it is that running crappy monsters to fuse into a good Fusion Monster does not a competitive deck make. So what do you get for running crappy monsters to fuse into a crappy Fusion Monster?

A crappy score on Pojo.com's COTD!

Stop fooling around Konami, and give us Super-Vehicroid Stealth Union please!

So, we’ve gone from bad card, to good card, to great card this week so far…and the trend continuous…..

Ambulance Rescueroid

Fire-Machine-Fusion
Fusion: Ambulanceroid + Rescueroid
Level 6
2300 atk 2000 def

This monster cannot be Special Summoned except by Fusion Summon. Once per turn, when a monster on your side of the field is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon that monster in Defense Position.

So, we have a fusion of two sub-par monsters. 2300 attack, just short of a monarch. 2000 defense, just short of defending against a Cyber Dragon. We all know how hard it is to play Fusions. If you decide to run this card, you need to probably run Future Fusion and Vehicroid Connection Zone (which makes this nearly invincible).

The effect isn’t actually too bad, if another monster on your side of the field is destroyed by battle Rescueroid can special summon that same monster in Defense Mode. If you need to keep a particular monster on the field, then Rescueroid might help. It’s just questionable whether the resources needed to bring out Rescueroid are worth it. The monster that killed your creature is still there, ready to kill it again., when you could run Solemn Judgments or whatever in order to protect that vital creature and be rid of your problem.

So, while this monster is interesting, I wouldn’t consider running it outside of a ROID deck (which aren’t terribly threatening as of late)
Traditional: 1/5

By now you should know my feelings on fusions. You should also know my feelings on situational effects. You should also know my feelings on putting a lot of resources into nothing.

And you should definitely know how I feel about mixing them all together into one card.

Knowing that, I present to you Rescueroid.

I think you can draw your own conclusions……
