* GodzillaThereshold: For the villains. After being a game ending threat for all of its appearance, [[spoiler:Bohman and Ai]], two of the effective FinalBoss of the series, were the only one who manage to survive Clock Dragon's assault and their response can only be summarized as this. [[spoiler:Bohman immediately responds by summoning an even stronger Link 5 monster and activating Judgment Arrows]] while [[spoiler:Ai]] went a step ahead with their countermeasure [[spoiler:with A.I.'s Show a card that specifically only really works well when used against Cyberse Clock Dragon, to summon 3 Extra Deck boss monster, and when that failed he went ahead and summoned a Link 6]].

* BigDamnHero: Its commonly joked that Elemental Hero Bubbleman is Jaden's true ace card because of its tendency to act as this trope. Since Bubbleman have an effect to draw 2 cards if have empty hand, it is used a lot to increase the card count for the duel, saving Jaden in a pinch in the process. Often times this is paired with cards such as Pot of Greed, Graceful Charity, and Fifth Hope that allows Jaden to draw 2 more cards to further save Jaden from a bad situation. In ealier parts of the anime, its draw 2 effect can activate on summon as long as its the only card on the field making it even more versatile as a get out of jail card.

* BoringButPractical: Cyberse Clock Dragon's primary effect is simply just to have a really high attack score. Over the course of the series this proves to be ridiculously effective, winning 2 duels in a single turn, and winning the third one within 2 summons in a single hit. Even after it stopped outright winning games, Cyberse Clock Dragon was considered as such a threat by both of the FinalBoss of the series that it was the trigger for them to finally go all out and summon their final boss monster.

* TheWorfEffect: In its early appearances, Cyberse Clock Dragon appearance is game ending. Comes Earth and its first summon failed to result in a one turn kill, showing that its power alone is not going to be enough to end whatever duel it is summoned in. After that point, Cyberse Clock Dragon ended up playing the role of Yusaku's boss monster that is summoned in the earlier phases of the duel to force the enemy to summon their true ace in the hole. Conveniently, putting Clock Dragon in this role easilly sets up for a comeback scenario, thanks to its secondary ability to fetch any spell card when it went down.

Added DiffLines:

** Somehow in season 3 this manage to happen to Decode Talker depite being heavilly advertised in the season's openning theme song, and it being used to end the duel. Decode Talker is summoned early, does nothing of note before its destroyed in a battle against Dark Templar, and is used to fusion summon Cyberse Clock Dragon. It proceed to go absent for the entire duel until the very last turn. The spotlight during the duel is mostly split between Firewall Dragon Darkfluid, Cyberse Clock Dragon, the EleventhHourSuperpower [[spoiler:Accesscode Talker]], and.... Borreload Furious Dragon.


Added DiffLines:

** In terms of gameplay function Darklfuid also serves as this for Yusaku's alternative summoning method ace monster since it requires a Cyberse monster of different summon type to fuel its effect. As a result, everytime Darkfluid is summoned into the field, Cyberse Clock Dragoon, Firewall eXceed Dragon, Cyberse Quantum Dragon, and Cyberse Magician is also in the graveyard.


Added DiffLines:

** In a sense subverted. While the original Firewall Dragon seldom made a proper appearance in the show, eXceed Dragon and Darkfluid appears in both the finale of season 2 and season 3, being a key player in both.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: Firewall Dragon Darkfluid made its appearance at the finale of season 2, after which season 3 is far shorter than season 2 and Yusaku only had 1 proper duel in the series. Essentially Darkfluid only appeared at the very end of the series.


* SpotlightStealingSquad: A particularly egregious case early into season 2. After its appearance against Blood Shepard, Cyberse Clock Dragon is immediately used again for Bohman duels as a game ending move. The next major duel against Earth, it was summoned twice after failing to close out the duel after the first summon. Cyberse Clock Dragon did not make an appearance again for a long time, all the way until the final duel of the season and even in that duel, it played the second most important role of Yusaku's Ace card, being the one that pushes the enemy to go further. This lasts until the end of the series, making Cyberse Clock Dragon by far Yusaku's most used card after its appearance.

This lasts until the end of the series, making Cyberse Clock Dragon by far Yusaku's most used card after its appearance.


Added DiffLines:

* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Cyberse Quantum Dragon's effect to return a monster to the deck only manage to work once in the entire series, against Rousing Hydradrive Monarch during episode 73, the debut episode of Quantum Dragon. Every other appearance of Quantum Dragon ends with its effect negated, or the opponent outright immune to its effect. Ironically those other duels where it failed was the only one that is won by Yusaku, as Quantum's debut ends in a draw.

Added DiffLines:

* OvershadowedByAwesome: Quantum Dragon's role in the series basically boils down to being the monster Yusaku summoned when the villain shows off their newest ace monster, in an attempt to use its effect to get rid of it. Since the duel have to last longer than that, it always failed so Yusaku's other monster such as Cyberse Clock Dragon can pick up the slack.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: To date Cyberse Quantum Dragon is Yusaku's least successful extra deck monster, being uneffective for almost everytime it is summoned, and the only one who never won a duel, even during its debut. For the most part, Yusaku would summon it to test the waters against the villain's new boss monster in hope of getting rid of it with its effect only for it to fail.


* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Once it became clear how ludicrously powerful Firewall Dragon's effects actually were, Cyberse Clock Dragon has gradually taken its place as Yusaku's ace monster after Decode Talker.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Once it became clear how ludicrously powerful Firewall Dragon's effects actually were, by the time of the second season, Cyberse Clock Dragon has gradually taken its place as Yusaku's ace monster after is introduced, got a lion share of screentime while both Firewall Dragon and Decode Talker.Talker got put to the sidelines for the vast majority of the series until they need to come out to introduce their evolved form.


** Interesting enough, after Atem got his hands on them, this trope ended up being applied to every single one of the Egyptian God Cards with the exception of Obelisk. Almost every attempts to summon Slifer and Ra ended up in failure in one way or another. Obelisk, on the other hand, ended up being Atem's most used God card, being the one that got most of the focus against Dark Marik, winning against 2 primary villain on stories set after Battle City, and being the first God card to be summoned in the Ceremonial Duel against Yugi, and in the manga, the only one summoned properly.

** Obelisk, and quite possibly all three of them during the Ceremonial Duel. By the time of the Ceremonial Duel, Yugi figured out that [[AwesomeButImpractical the Egyptian God Cards simply requires too much sacrifice to be used together]] which is what leads into the Monster Reborn God card strategy that is overly used by the end of Battle City. In the anime, this turns out to be unfounded since Atem ended up summoning all 3 of them. In the manga this is proven true, as Atem ended up only summoning Obelisk. Regardless of continuity, Yugi proceed to dismantle the god cards, while shutting down the the Monster Reborn God card strategy out of the game.
