The final Link Monster we look at until Code of the Duelist releases is Link Spider, a card that makes Gofu a 1-card Link-3 already.
 
Link Spider is a Link-1, requiring only 1 Normal Monster. Tokens are Normal Monsters, and currently this is the only Link Monster you can use Tokens for. This is why Gofu is broken, because Link Spider is an Effect Monster, you can use the Tokens Gofu gives you to summon two Link Spiders (since they have the Bottom Link Marker you can summon the second one to the Main Monster Zone) and use Gofu and the Two Link Spiders to go into Decode Talker to unlock the Extra Deck for your Main Monster Zones. Gofu will get limited or banned, but lets get into the effect of Link Spider. Link Spider allows you to summon a Normal Monster from your hand to a zone this card points to. This is a nice little handy effect to get another monster for Link Material whether you have to use the Normal Monster to Link Summon or not.
 
This is a nice little card, not amazing though. Great in World Chalice and mostly used right now because Gofu and maybe other future Token Generators exist.
 
Advanced Rating: 3.25/5

Today we're taking a look at Link Spider, a Link 1 Light Cyberse monster with 1000 attack and a down arrow.
 
Link Spider's summoning material is 1 normal monster. And for that, once per turn you can special summon a level 4 or lower normal monster from your hand that he's pointing to. That's all, he's somewhat disappointing for what he does and doesn't really have much use outside of a few specialised decks, but then, Link Spider is nothing more than a stepping stone at this point.
 
Link Spider's real use comes in conjunction with Blackwing - Gofu the Vague Shadow. Most players already know the combo play that comes with Gofu, but for those that don't. When Gofu is summoned through its effect, it creates two tokens, which are normal monsters. Both tokens are used to make a pair of Link Spiders, which along with Gofu itself, are used to Link into Decode Talker.
 
For the moment, that is essentially all Link Spider is, just a piece of a small puzzle to make Decode Talker easier to summon. Link Spider may have uses in World Chalice, Metalfoes and a few other niche decks, but for the moment, he is limited by what's actually playable.
 
Artwise, I think Link Spider actually looks the best out of the initial 3 Link monsters that've been released. Looking like a more streamlined Tachikoma from the Ghost in the Shell franchise.
 
Advanced 2.5/5
Art 5/5

Link Spider is named very simply. It is an Earth Cyberse-type 1 Arrow Link Monster with 1000 Atk. 1000 Atk isn't a lot, but the effect to bring a Level 4 or lower Normal Monster from your hand to Link Spider's pointed zone. The more monster's on the field, the better most of the time. Blue-Eyes players have enjoyed being able to just use their Vanilla Beater to attack and then tag out to this. Link Spider is also an effect monster to be used to climb the link ladder to Decode Talker or Honey Bot from yesterday. Certainly an excellent start for a new feature. 
 
Score: 4/5
Art: 4/5 Spider's are cool, but the name could have been better.
