General description:
Chthonian Emperor Dragon is a Gemini Monster, Dragon type, level 6 and 2400 ATK, when it is re-summoned (Gemini Summon) can attack 2 time in the same Battle Phase (BP)

Gemini Monsters are monsters that when they are face up on the field and in the graveyard are treated as Normal Monsters, when they are face up on the field can be re-summoned and treated with the respective effect.Gemini Monster level 5 or higher NOT need another tribute when they are re-summoned.
Re-summonned a Gemini Monster counts as a Normal Summon, therefore can NOT make a Gemini and a Normal Summon Summon in the same turn (unless you use cards like Double Summon and Ultimate Offering)

Uses:
Its main use is to attack (obviously). Mainly in a Gemini Deck (where it helps to have 2), can help support the new Structure Deck Warrior's Strike and the expansions Stardust Overdrive, or can also be used in a Dragon Deck by their type.

Strategies and game play:
As is Gemini Monster and treated as Normal Monster in the Field and Graveyard cards can generally take for Normal Monsters as, Swing of Memories, Dark Factory of Mass Production, to return it to the field or your hand, you can use to protect Non-Spellcasting Area , if is treated as Effect Monster Energy Bravery, can use to look from the deck we can use Woodland Archer, which helps us to find any Gemini Monster from the deck to the hand.

Combos with other cards:
Dragon's Mirror + Return from the Different Dimension: We use Dragon's Mirror to remove 2 ChtED and summon Superalloy Beast Raptinus and then activate Return from the Different Dimension to return it.
Vanguard of the Dragon: With this card we make a good combo, discard ChtED for Vanguard of the Dragon has 2000 ATK and is destroyed when can reborn ChtED.
Rope of Life: When ChtED is destroyed in battle we can activate it, discard the hand and back with +800 ATK, re-summon it and can attack 2 times.
Strike Slash: Activate when ChtED attack and was re-summoned, gain +700 ATK (3100 ATK) and may "pass" defense, in addition to attack 2 times by its own effect.
Spiritual Fire Art - Kurenai: If the opponent has 2400 or less lp, we can use this card and tributing ChtED to causing 2400 of direct damage and win the duel.
Gemini Trap Hole + Gemini Monster treated as Effect Monster Monster: Suicide Gemini Monster and then activate Gemini Trap Hole to destroy all opponents monsters and so direct attack ChtED.
Evocator Chevalier + Supervise: Equip Chevalier Evocator with Supervise, used its effect sending Supervise the cemetery to destroy 1 card and reborn to ChtED.
Blazewing Butterfly + Supervise + 2 ChtED in the graveyard: Equip Butterfly Blazewing with Supervise, tributed and are reborn to 1 ChtED won its effect, then the effect of other reborn ChtED and if you have the possibility to re-summon.
Future Fusion + Blazewing Butterfly + Swing of Memories: With Future Fusion send to the graveyard 1 ChtED and 1 Blazewing Butterfly, activate Swing of Memories to reborn Blazewing Butterfly, re-summon it , tributed and reborn ChtED with effect.
Whe can use A Wingbeat of Giant Dragon, Dragon's Gunfire, Stamping Destruction, Burst Breath and Dragon's Rage.


Ways to counteract it:
Avoid summon and effect:
Bottomless Trap Hole, Solemn Judgment, Book of Moon.
Destroy him with monster effect, spell and traps cards:
Old Vindictive Magician, Night Assailant, Lightning Vortex, Smashing Ground, Mirror Force, Sakuretsu Armor, Dimensional Prison.
Decrease ATK:
Shrink, Burden of the Mighty.

Strengths/Pros:
1) Good effect.
2) Good ATK of 2400
3) Only need 1 tribute.

Weaknesses/Cons:
1) Vulnerable to monsters with more ATK.
2) It is vulnerable to effects of monsters, spell and trap cards, this does not apply if you have to Energy Bravery face-up in the field.
3) It must be re-summoned, so you lose 1 Normal Summon.

Variations:
Ultra Rare in TAEV.
Ultimate Rare in TAEV

Artwork and aesthetics:
This monster has a counterpart that is Doomkaiser Zombie Dragon, in my opinion should have 2 heads to represent you can attack 2 times.

Overall rating:
I give a 7, having to re-summon it is tedious, but has good ATK and can attack 2 times is good.

Comment and rate please

great reviews so true , THe thing about gemini monsters is that abusing cards that special summon so they can regain they're effect ( if you haven't normal, .. duh) and cards to support them like supervise and cards that say : Normal monsters

This card works wonders in combination with King Dragun (I've got a review on it). You can spec al summon it, then re-summon it in the same turn. Plus, because of King Dragun you don't have to worry about any kind of effects because they are negated!
