This weeks Throwback Thursday is Five-headed Dragon, to continue our list of dragons that are meant to be supreme but not quite there. Five-headed Dragon was last reviewed almost 6 years ago back in 2011, and not much has changed for him since then.
 
Originally called Five-God Dragon in the OCG, people had never seen the likes of a monster with 5000 attack that couldn't be killed in battle by anything but a Light monster. Flaunting a 5000 attack and defence body on a level 12 dark dragon is pretty good, and he's even generic, only needing 5 dragons to summon it.
 
He's a solid beater and a nice wall, but sadly he doesn't have any protection outside of 5/6's battle protection. And it's a shame, on the spot removal is more commonplace nowadays and with extra deck space being even tighter now and moreso in the not-too distant future, FGD sadly doesn't see much play anymore. That aside, he's easy to summon, is a high attack threat for the opponent to worry about and looks imposing.
 
Advanced 2/5

When you need a 5000 ATK Fusion monster, I guess you can't beat Five-Headed Dragon.  He's also protected in battle against most monsters because 5000 ATK is not enough.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Throwback Thursday looks at one of the fiercest Dragons to ever be played: Five-Headed Dragon.
 
Five of any Dragon-Type monsters fused together gets you this 5000ATK/5000DEF boss dragon. For your efforts to summon this monster, it can't be destroyed in battle by anything other than a LIGHT Monster. Simple to summon in terms of not needing anything too specific, you have to commit to the summon, dedicating up to six resources to make it, you'd better have some protection for it though when you summon it.
 
Future Fusion is back in the game, so if you can protect it long enough you can easily dump enough stuff into the grave with it and start the process. You'd always want to run monsters that would get you advantage in the grave so you could recoup after the commitment. Lightpulsar, White Stone of Legend, Dragon Rulers, etc, these monsters dumped in the grave were the best ones. While using Polymerization or Fusion Gate were rare to summon Five-Headed, it wasn't impossible, Future Fusion was just best: it thinned your deck, set up your grave, and only used one resource from your hand. Dragon's Mirror made summoning this monster MUCH easier. Late game you could get a hold of Dragon's Mirror, banish five dragons and slam your opponent with this monster. If you seriously wanted to summon Five-Headed, Dragon's Mirror and Future Fusion were a must. The combo of Future Fusion then Dragon's Mirror in one turn was even better, potentially netting you two Five-Headed Dragons once Future Fusion reached the 2nd Standby Phase back in the day.
 
Now Five-Headed isn't that great, but it is still one of the strongest monsters in the game.
 
Advanced-1/5

Today, for Throwback Thursday, we review a card that has an infamous history in the meta just for existing, and that is Five-Headed Dragon.
 
Five-Headed Dragon is one of few monsters with 5000 ATK as well as 5000 DEF. He requires 5 Dragon-type monsters, which is why he was important to the meta. Future Fusion let you dump 5 dragons to the grave, and that was so good in Chaos Dragons that Future Fusion was banned and more recently erratted so it is much slower. If you do summon this guy (which is only possible via Fusion Summon first), he can only be destroyed by battle with Light monsters, which sucks because that is the attribute that has access to Honest.
 
I can see this card rising in importance in the future with the new Cyberdark support, but for now he is just good as being a boss summonable off Future Fusion or Dragon's Mirror.
 
Advanced Rating: 3/5
