"A boggling monster of an eyeball from which grows a foot.
To attack, it leaps high and strikes with its sharp talons."
- The Drdek card description.
A Duel Monsters card game creature that can be found in Konami's 2002/2003 Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Sacred Cards Gameboy Advance video game, which is based on the popular anime/manga, and real-world collectible card game, of the same name, created by Kazuki Takahashi.
1 Monster card strength ranges from 1-12 stars; summoning stronger monsters (generally 5-6 stars and above) will require the sacrifice of 1-3 other creatures.
2 There are twenty Types of monsters (Aqua, Beast, Beast Warrior, Dinosaur, Dragon, Fairy, Fiend, Fish, Insect, Machine, Plant, Pyro, Reptile, Rock, Sea Serpent, Spellcaster, Thunder, Warrior, Winged Beast, and Zombie). Type dictates how terrain changes will affect any given creature, if at all (its ATT/DEF will increase, decrease, or stay the same, depending on the Type and the terrain encountered). Fiends and Spellcasters get a 30% bonus to their ATT/DEF in Yami (darkness), so, in other words, The Drdek would be a 910 Attack/1,040 Defense creature on a Yami battle field, instead of its normal 700/800 values. If you're going to rely heavily on Fiends in your deck, then obviously it would be to your advantage to include cards that can change the terrain to Yami in your strategy.
3 There are eleven Summon types (Dark, Divine, Dreams, Earth, Fiend, Fire, Forest, Light, Thunder, Water, and Wind), these correspond to elemental strengths/weaknesses, with the exception of the Divine cards, which are neither weak, nor strong, against any other Summon type. Fiend cards are strong against Dreams cards (automatic win, regardless of ATT/DEF power) and weak against Light cards (automatic loss, regardless of ATT/DEF power). Needless to say, attacking a Light card with a The Drdek card would be suicidal.
4 Cost pertains to your Duelist Level and Deck Capacity. You cannot add a card to your deck that has a higher Cost than your Duelist Level. So, let's say your Duelist Level was 58, or less--you would not be able to put any The Drdek cards in your deck. Whenever you place any card in your deck, the Cost of said card gets added to your total deck value--the final Cost of your deck cannot exceed the number of your current Deck Capacity. Win more card battles to increase both your Duelist Level and Deck Capacity (think of it like experience points/levels in a traditional roleplaying game).
5 Passwords can be entered into the password machine inside the Card Shop, after which, the corresponding card can then be purchased from the shopkeeper (provided you have enough Domino, the currency of Yu-Gi-Oh!, that is). This is basically a way to force the clerk to sell a specific card that you wish to buy.
Newsprint, tissue paper, white glue, synthetic hair, nail polish, and acrylic paint.
