RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: Do not pass go, do not collect $200 and most importantly, do not play this card outside GB decks.
GLAS-EN018
Gladiator Beast Spartacus
EARTH / Dinosaur / Level 5 / ATK 2200 / DEF 1600
This card cannot be Special Summoned except by the effect of "Gladiator Beast Hoplomus". When this card is Special Summoned, add 1 "Gladiator Beast" Equip Spell Card from your Deck to your hand. At the end of the Battle Phase, if this card attacked or was attacked, you can return it to the Deck to Special Summon 1 "Gladiator Beast" monster from your Deck, except "Gladiator Beast Spartacus".
RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: Contrary to Alexander, this guy isn't playable outside GB decks since its stats are below playable status to make up for the bad effect.
GLAS-EN017*
Gladiator Beast Alexander
LIGHT / Beast / Level 6 / ATK 2400 / DEF 600
This card cannot be Special Summoned except by the effect of "Gladiator Beast Dimacari". If this card is Special Summoned, it is unaffected by the effects of Spell Cards. At the end of the Battle Phase, if this card attacked or was attacked, you can return it to the Deck to Special Summon 1 "Gladiator Beast" monster from your Deck, except "Gladiator Beast Alexander".
SUPER RARE
Rating: 3
Comments: All it takes is an effect to knock off a star from a card's rating and that's exactly what happened here. Still decent outside GB decks, though.
GLAS-EN016
Expressroid
EARTH / Machine / Level 4 / ATK 400 / DEF 1600
When you Summon this card, you can add 2 "roid" monsters from your Graveyard to your hand, except "Expressroid".
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It probably should've been a common since its stats don't allow it to be on the field very long but perhaps its effect is why it became a Rare as it is also why its rating is 2/5.
GLAS-EN015
Stealthroid
DARK / Machine / Level 4 / ATK 1200 / DEF 0
If this card attacks, destroy 1 Spell or Trap Card at the end of the Battle Phase if you control another "roid" monster.
COMMON
Rating: 1
Comments: Stats of (1200/0) indicate to me that he dies more quickly than he flies.
GLAS-EN014
Truckroid
EARTH / Machine / Level 4 / ATK 1000 / DEF 2000
When this card destroys a monster your opponent controls by battle and sends it to the Graveyard, equip it to this card. This card gains ATK equal to the combined ATK of the equipped card(s).
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: IF it's lucky enough to destroy a monster in battle then it becomes somewhat playable but still not decent since its 1000 original ATK is horrible overall and its DEF doesn't quite make up for it, either.
GLAS-EN013
Cloudian Turbulence
WATER / Fairy / Level 4 / ATK 800 / DEF 0
This card cannot be destroyed by battle. If this card is in face-up Defense Position, destroy it. When you Normal Summon this card, place 1 Fog Counter on it for each "Cloudian" monster on the field. You can remove 1 Fog Counter from this card to Special Summon 1 "Cloudian - Smoke Ball" from your Deck or from either player's Graveyard.
COMMON
Rating: 1
Comments: Same as GLAS-EN011's comments.
GLAS-EN012
Cloudian - Altus
WATER / Fairy / Level 4 / ATK 1300 / DEF 0
This card cannot be destroyed by battle. If this card is in face-up Defense Position, destroy it. When you Normal Summon this card, place 1 Fog Counter on it for each "Cloudian" monster on the field. You can remove 3 Fog Counters from anywhere on the field to discard 1 random card from your opponent's hand.
RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: He's certainly stronger than the past two Cloudian monsters but still does not make it to playability land.
GLAS-EN011
Cloudian - Cirrostratus
WATER / Fairy / Level 4 / ATK 900 / DEF 0
This card cannot be destroyed by battle. If this card is in face-up Defense Position, destroy it. When you Normal Summon this card, place 1 Fog Counter on it for each "Cloudian" monster on the field. You can remove 2 Fog Counters from this card to destroy 1 monster on the field.
RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: Same as GLAS-EN010's comments.
GLAS-EN010
Cloudian - Acid Cloud
WATER / Fairy / Level 4 / ATK 500 / DEF 0
This card cannot be destroyed by battle. If this card is in face-up Defense Position, destroy it. When you Normal Summon this card, place 1 Fog Counter on it for each "Cloudian" monster on the field. You can remove 2 Fog Counters from this card to destroy 1 Spell or Trap Card.
RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: It can't be destroyed in battle but you still take major damage in most cases and he has the "die if in Defense Mode" effect as well, making him even less playable.
GLAS-EN009
Cloudian - Poison Cloud
WATER / Fiend / Level 3 / ATK 0 / DEF 1000
If this face-up card attacks or is attacked, and is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, destroy the monster that destroyed it, and then inflict 800 damage to your opponent.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: Same as GLAS-EN007's comments.
GLAS-EN008*
Cloudian - Sheep Cloud
WATER / Fairy / Level 1 / ATK 0 / DEF 0
When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, Special Summon 2 "Cloudian Tokens" (Fairy-Type/WATER/Level 1/ATK 0/DEF 0) in Defense Position. These tokens cannot be Tributed for a Tribute Summon, unless it is for a "Cloudian" monster.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: What's unfortunate about this card is that virtually everything about it doesn't support it being a Super Rare. The tokens it summons can't be tributed for non Cloudian monsters and its stats are horrible.
GLAS-EN007
Cloudian - Nimbusman
WATER / Fairy / Level 5 / ATK 1000 / DEF 1000
This card cannot be destroyed by battle. If this card is in face-up Defense Position, destroy it. You can Tribute any number of WATER monsters for the Tribute Summon of this card. When this card is Tribute Summoned, place 1 Fog Counter on it for each WATER monster you Tributed. This card gains 500 ATK for each Fog Counter on the field.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: His first effect, like Ghost Fog, is all that pushes his rating to 2 stars as everything else doesn't support it.
GLAS-EN006
Cloudian - Ghost Fog
WATER / Fiend / Level 1 / ATK 0 / DEF 0
This card cannot be Special Summoned. All Battle Damage to either player from a battle involving this monster becomes 0. If this card is destroyed by battle, distribute new Fog Counters equal to the Level of the monster that destroyed it among face-up monsters.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: About the only good thing he does is power up Nimbusman since everything else about him leads to a very unplayable monster.
GLAS-EN005*
Cloudian - Eye of the Typhoon
WIND / Aqua / Level 8 / ATK 3000 / DEF 1000
This card cannot be destroyed by battle. If this card is in face-up Defense Position, destroy it. When this card declares an attack, change the battle positions of all face-up monsters, except "Cloudian" monsters.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 3
Comments: While normally worthy of 4 stars, his effect and low DEF are the culprit for his 3-star rating. Everything else stops his rating from going any lower.
GLAS-EN004
Evil Hero Infernal Gainer
EARTH / Fiend / Level 4 / ATK 1600 / DEF 0
During your Main Phase 1, you can remove this card from play and select 1 face-up Fiend-Type monster you control. That monster can attack twice during each Battle Phase. Special Summon this card in face-up Attack Position during your second Standby Phase after you activate this effect.
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: With his low stats, his effect does protect him from being destroyed in battle and lets your strong Fiend-Type monsters destroy more monsters but when this guy comes back, he's susceptible to Bottomless.
GLAS-EN003*
Evil Hero Malicious Edge
EARTH / Fiend / Level 7 / ATK 2600 / DEF 1800
If your opponent controls a monster, you can Normal Summon this card with 1 Tribute. During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 3
Comments: Since most experienced duelists will have a monster out by the time you draw this guy, he'll save you from two tributes and inflict extra damage when destroying your opponent's Defense Position monsters!
GLAS-EN002
Cloudian - Smoke Ball
WATER / Fairy / Level 1 / ATK 200 / DEF 600
Smoke Balls are newly born Cloudians. They fear being alone, and would rather swing and sway in the sky with their friends.
COMMON
Rating: 1
Comments: Another unnecessary useless Normal Monster that Konami feels is worthy of including in every set.
GLAS-EN001
Chamberlain of the Six Samurai
EARTH / Warrior / Level 3 / ATK 200 / DEF 2000
The Six Samurai are supported from the shadows by this silent and mysterious warrior. His past is unknown to them, but his countless scars are proof of his experience.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: He can join the many others who are just as near-unplayable as he is.
GLAS-EN000
Gladiator Beast Octavius
LIGHT / Winged Beast / Level 7 / ATK 2500 / DEF 1200
When this card is Special Summoned by the effect of a "Gladiator Beast" monster, destroy 1 face-down Spell or Trap Card. At the end of your Battle Phase, if this card attacked or was attacked, return this card to the Deck unless you discard 1 card.
SECRET RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: Needing two tributes and a really bad effect make for a really bad card for a Secret Rare.
