Greetings Yu-Gi-Oh! Fans!
Welcome to another Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One set coming to a retailer near you in 2014! Today’s preview is a character that’s quite the card, Red Eyes B Dragon! Come see what has us fired up about him!
Red Eyes B. Dragon starts his first 2 clicks with Running Shot, Impervious, and the special power Inferno Fire Blast that states Red-Eyes B. Dragon can use Energy Explosion and Penetrating/Psychic Blast. When it uses either, after actions resolve, hit characters are knocked back equal to the damage taken. This character is the one that will have a large red target painted above his red eyes.
However, now that Energy Explosion and Penetrating/Psychic Blast work together, this can potentially put a wrench in your opponent’s strategy. If they are hiding characters behind other characters, using these two powers together can deal penetrating damage to all hit targets! And any knockback generated by this power can separate an Enhancement based team, or even drop opposing characters off elevated terrain and possibly dealing more knockback damage!
After the top 3 clicks of Running Shot, Red Eyes B. Dragon transitions to Sidestep for 2 clicks. With an 8 range single target and Sidestep he should be able to keep on the offensive. On click 4 he gets Shape Change and damage reducers for his entire dial. On clicks 6-8 he gets the special power Sharp Claws which states when Red-Eyes B. Dragon is targeted with an attack by an opposing character 150 points or less, after the attack resolves, modify Red-Eyes B. Dragon’s combat values by +1 until the end of your next turn. With high attack and damage values throughout the dial, the +1 to combat values at end of his dial can help decisively end the battle and making sure it doesn’t “drag on.”
