Dododo Warrior kinda makes you want to say D'oh, doesn't he?  This is a Level 6, Earth attributed Warrior, with 2300 attack and 900 defense, both of which are subpar.  Requiring a tribute, almost would singe handedly kill any playability this card may have had.  But he can be Normal Summoned without Tribute from your Hand, although his attack drops to 1800, but he still is a Level 6 Monster.  This is good, obviously for XYZ or even Synchro Summons.  When this card attacks, your opponent cannot activate card effects from the Graveyard until the End of the Damage Step.  Honestly, you could do worse, but that isn't going to stop a lot, if any, of the cards you see played against you.  If it were able to stop card effects generally or something, we might have winner.  But since we don't...

Traditional:  1.25/5
Advanced:   2.25/5 
Art: 3.5/5

Today’s card, Dododo Warrior, is a card with many uses. First, it is a level 6 monster that can be normal summoned. Level 6 monsters that you can get on the field easily are a good thing. Once it hits the graveyard, Call of the Haunted and Monster Reborn can resurrect it to become a 2300 attacker or Xyz material for one of the many powerful rank 6 monsters in the game. Even at 1800 in attack, it can still destroy and negate all of the recruiter and searcher monsters in the game. If you can’t wait for your Warrior have a larger attack, you can always play it with Skill Drain or Forbidden Chalice.

The main benefit that Dododo Warrior gives you is in its level. If you want to have a Warrior build designed to special summon rank 6 monsters, you might try Destiny HERO’s with Dasher and Malicious. When also played with Elemental HERO’s you have Gaia and Masked HERO’s Goka and Vapor. Another nice fit with Dododo Warrior is Hammer Bounzer and The Fiend Megacyber as they too can be normal or special summoned.

Dododo Warrior will also work well with Dododo Buster in the future, as when it is tribute summoned, you can special summon Dododo Warrior from the graveyard. It is all about making those cool rank 6’s with Dododo Warrior and having a negation ability is just icing on the cake.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5

Welcome to our second day of looking at the cards from the brand new collectible tin! Today we look at another Yuma card, but this time a main deck monster! This can be quite the threat against decks like Lightsworn, but let's jump right ahead into our review of Dododo Warrior!
Dododo Warrior
Level 6/ Earth/ Warrior
You can Normal Summon this card without Tributing, but its original ATK becomes 1800. If this card attacks, negate all card effects that activate in the opponent's Graveyard, until the end of the Damage Step.
2300/ 900
A very interesting card to say the least. Just from looking at it, it is obvious to see that is meant for making Rank 6's. However, there are a couple other uses for this card.
For starters, he can be normal summoned for no tribute, allowing you to easily get another level 6 on the field. Not bad I must say. However, his attack does drop to the disappointing 1800. For a beater now-a-days, 1900 is somewhat the norm, unless you carry an awesome ability.
Luckily, Dododo Warrior does have a pretty good effect. When he attacks, your opponent will be unable to activate any effect that activates in grave. Primarly, this stops cards like Necro Guardna or Bacon Saver from stopping your attacks.
Andddd... that's about it. It's use is kinda limited as to only grave-yard effects, but the effect is pretty useful to have! However, there are plenty of better options
Advanced: 2.5
It's decent, but not the best card to have been released. Maybe if we ever receive any more Dododo cards like Gagaga and Gogogo are?
Traditional: 1.5
I wouldn't even bother.
Art: 2.5
A very interesting mini-viking type character. 


Okay, today we have another monster from the Zexal Tin. It is a card that hasn’t had too much attention but is it actually good?

Dododo Warrior
Level 6

You can Normal Summon this card without Tributing, but its original ATK becomes 1800. If this card attacks, negate all card effects that activate in the opponent's Graveyard, until the end of the Damage Step.
ATK/2300 DEF/900

So at first glance this monster doesn’t seem too special. It is a warrior monster that can be normal summoned with 1800 attack without tributing. Now it’s actually a decent monster. You can normal summon this monster with 1800 attack and then use skill drain or forbidden chalice to make this monster’s original attack return to 2300. You can also return this monster to its original attack by using it together with the field spell Future Visions. This card is also a nice monster to use for rank 6 Xyz monsters.

This monster is also a nice monster that can help deal with monster effects like mystic tomato’s and x-saber emmersblade’s effects.

Advanced: 2.75/5
-This card is decent but isn’t very good right now. I can see this card as possibly being useful in the future. Right now it is just too slow and not relevant enough to use. It seems like a card that would be good for casual play but not competitive play. Beast king Barbaros can do almost the same thing as this card and is just better.

Traditional: 1.5/5
-This card can be used against monster like sangan and witch of the black forest, but it isn’t dark, light, or fast enough to play here.

Art: 4/5
-The art looks pretty good and looks kind of cool because it looks a Viking.

Dododo Warrior
You can Normal Summon this card without Tributing, but its original ATK becomes 1800. If this card attacks, negate all card effects that activate in the opponent's Graveyard, until the end of the Damage Step.

Next card from the 2013 Zexal Collection Tin is Dododo Warrior. Dododo Warrior like a couple of high level monsters  has a way to summon him without tribute summoning. In this case he loses 500 ATK turning him into a level 6 monster with 1800 ATK which was bad even back in the early days of Yu-Gi-Oh! Still he does keep his level so he can be used to get out Xyz and Sycnhro monsters easier.

Luckily Dododo Warrior has a second effect to make up for his first. He will negate all effects in the graveyard when he attacks. This is a good effect as it stops the likes of Mystic Tomato and Sangan, as well as cards like Necro Gardna.

Overall, Dododo Warrior has a lot going for him, but it’s still hard to see him getting too much play compared to other level 6 monsters.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3/5
