Worst…rename…ever. The same guy
who came up with “Magical Something” was probably
charged with naming this monster. Wow, so bad. Right
up there with Mystical Space Typhoon and Jinzo. In
fact, for the rest of the review, I’m calling him by
his OCG name, Mochi Toad or Treatoad. I just can’t
handle that biz.
Treatoad is amazing, and would
have been great with current support, but then the
Paleozoic trap monsters were released as well. They
had previously only been available in Korea, but
were finally released to the rest of the TCG and OCG
just weeks ago, probably in anticipation of the
return of frog decks. I think what really got people
excited about this particular monster wasn’t exactly
its Solemn Judgment ability, but really it was the
prospect of being able to steal what was negated.
And make no mistake, that is exactly what makes
Treatoad such a beast. Knowing an opponent has
Solemn Judgment waiting is one thing, but knowing he
can steal whatever card you sacrifice to blow it up
is downright cruel. And let’s not forget this is a
once per turn per monster effect! Three Treatoads
with enough resources means a lockdown with greater
potential than Herald of Perfection or Herald of
Ultimateness. And of course, to ensure its
5-star status, of course Treatoad will replenish
your hand when it goes to the grave. And it’s ANY
water monster? Busted.
Treatoad has more future
potential than 99% of cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh library.
Any future level 2 Aqua monster released will point
to him immediately until the day he’s restricted,
even if you don’t want to run even a single frog
monster in your deck. I doubt he’ll ever be banned,
however. Unlike Number 16: Shock Master, Treatoad
isn’t capable of overwhelming without numbers. When
he’s at 3, he’s a force, but at 1, he’s just another
Future Potential: 5/5
Wow..... This has to be the greatest card art I've
ever seen in a long time, and I may not even be
joking. It's so aesthetically striking, yet
pleasant. I don't know what the frogs are
doing to each other and why that apple has to be
there for extra comedic value, but great job on that
But beyond that, it's a great Rank 2, exclusive to
Frogs (and since most of those monsters are weak
floaters, they need something powerful anyway).
2200 ATK is really good
for such a low rank.
You can get a +1 during
your Standby Phase.
It replaces itself when it
dies (so I guess, unfortunately, if
it gets hit with Bottomless Trap
Hole or something like that, you get
But the crown jewel is the
negation effect which manages to be
even better than Dark Paladin's
effect, except it stops all types of
effects with just the discard of
what is likely a floater anyway.
Hello Pojo Fans,
One of the best named monsters in Yugioh, I think
Yang Xiao Long named it.
Toadally Awesome is what Frogs needed when their
stuff wasn't touched by the ban list. A Rank 2 with
2200ATK is really good, but you are restricted to
only Aqua-Type monsters to use. It special Summons
Frog monsters from your deck for each material you
detach, but from the deck doubles as a deck thin.
Need that Treeborn Frog? Detach during the Standby
Phase, find that Frog and bring him to the field.
1-for-1 spell/trap negation ability with the added
bonus of you gaining that card face-down on your
field boosts this cards play. You force your
opponent to activate spell/trap cards in a certain
order to avoid your effect. Even if they take out
all your Aqua-Type monsters from the field (aside
from Toadally Awesome), you still can activate the
effect with a discard from the hand, or even using
Toadally Awesome as the cost.
Send is the key word. Toadally Awesome gets an
effect when its sent to the grave. Any WATER monster
in your grave comes back to your hand, even Toadally
Awesome (though it will go to the Extra Deck). Any
card that evens itself out after leaving the field
is worth a look, but with that one word, "send" it
opens up plays using Aqua monsters that gain effects
off being sent.
Until Next Time
Toadally Awesome is a Rank 2 Water Aqua-type XYZ
Monster with 2200 Atk and 0 Def. It needs 2 Level 2
Aqua monsters to XYZ Summon, but the effects require
Water or Aqua monsters anyway, so it can only be
played in those decks to begin with. This card has
decent Atk for Rank 2, and it even has 3 good
effects. The only one that costs an XYZ Material
let's you Special Summon any Frog monster from the
deck, but only once per turn during the Standby
Phase. I'm pretty sure it's either player's Standby
Phase and multiple Special Summons per Toadally
Awesome on the field. Deck searchers are great so it
stands to reason that Deck Summoners are great as
well. Restricting to Frog monsters only makes this
The second effect can be activated any time during
either player's turn and again only once per turn
per Toadally Awesome. You can negate an activation
of anything your opponent does and destroy the card
at the cost of sending an Aqua monster from the hand
or face-up on the field to the grave. Then you can
set that destroyed card to your field. "Walking"
Negation is very good. Between this and Cyber Dragon
Infinity, XYZ monsters really like to negate and
steal cards. The cost is very easy since Frog cards
in general love to get back to hand or field.
As if that wasn't enough, Toadally Awesome has one
final gift. It floats like a great big toad when it
hits the grave and gives you any Water monster to
your hand. I wonder if anyone will play Gale Dogra
to get any Water monster from the grave at the cost
of 3000 Life Points. Stranger things have happened.
Gee, Konami "Really" went out of their way with this
one when it came to thinking of a name for this
If I had to guess, this cards name was probably
decided upon during a drinking game of some sort or
And then there's that artwork... Lame!
Well, at least its a Secret Rare I suppose...
Actually, that makes the last part of this card that
is probably going to suck, its probable price tag.
BUT, aside from all of those former mentioned
negatives, this card is going to be good, especially
since its going to be rather easily Summoned via
Bahumut Shark (Mermail/ Atlantean), and for "Frog's"
this card is going to be very easily Summoned once,
if not more per turn. And even when Toadally Awesome
is sent to the Graveyard, if it does not choose to
return another WATER monster, it is able to return
itself to the Extra Deck, meaning that even if there
is Extra Deck space for only 1 Toadally Awesome,
this will be able to recycle itself over and over.
The noteable thing about the last part of Toadally
Awesome's effect is that it is able to return any
WATER type monster from the Graveyard to the hand,
making this guy essentially generic in any Deck that
runs WATER attribute monsters. Additionally, as long
as this card is "Sent" to the Graveyard, you will be
able to add a WATER type monster to your hand, thus
if you are able to send this card from your Extra
Deck, straight to the Graveyard, you'll also be able
to gain this cards effect... Very handy indeed!
This is going to be a very powerful stun type card
for many Decks, just like Laggia and Dolkka or
Infinity have been during their own moments in time.
When this card is released, expect a surge in
MermailAtlanteans and Frog Decks, plus, this also
works in Paleozoics too! People are going to want to
play this, and games where it is played could
potentially have the outcome of a Duel decided by
who gets this out first.
Rating: 4.5. Thankfully this cards Rank is low AND
it requires 2 Aqua (but not necessarily WATER!) type
monsters in order to Summon it, this means that
apart from Frogs whom will be able to Summon this at
a breeze, other Decks will likely be using Bahaumt
Shark as a way to Summon this. If it were easier to
Summon this cards Rating would for me be higher,
although ironically, that this card can be Summoned
via Bahumut Shark also makes this cards Rating
higher! This will be a card to be fearful of,
especially since the cards that you'll be trying to
remove this with, can then be turned right against
you, and that part of this cards effect is what will
make this truly an adversary to fear.
