General description:
This is the one and only best card made for equipe cards out there today. the combonations you can make with equipes are endless! And more equipes come out every set! This card will only get better as tme goes by.

Uses:
this card is a strait forward Beat stick! Just give him a stick and watch him give the beating.

Strategies and game play:
This is were it get complicated. The number of equipes out there make this card very flexable. Just through in equipes that deal with your stratagy and give them to O'l ben kei.

Combos with other cards:
umm...how bout axe of despair! or Wicked-Breaking Flamberge - Baou.
the possiblitys are endless!

Ways to counteract it:
waboku...and change of heart will hurt this card too. mirror force. basicly any trap that deals with stoping or negating an attack will hurt this card.

Strengths/Pros:
if used properly this card can help you win very early in a game. cards like giant trunade and heavy storm to clear your opponents spells and traps and maybe a Wicked-Breaking Flamberge - Baou and some power up equipes and this guy can go to town on you opponents life points very quickly!

Weaknesses/Cons:
same as ways to counteract.

Variations:
none that I know of.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The artwork is ok. it would be really kool if it had an ultimate rare version. then I think people would take this card more seriously.

Overall rating:
I give ot a 9 out of 10

you forgot about another weakness...Tsukuyomi and Book of Moon.

Whenever a monster is flipped face-down, it loses all it's equips. Which means if one of these two cards found in a lot of competitive decks hits your Samurai, it's power is gone.

Also, being a 4* monster isn't all it's cracked up to be against stallers, but then again, with equips to counter that it's not a huge deal. Overall, this was a good review, but not comprehensive (i.e.: book of moon)

awesome card, and one of the most potentially destructive ones. Don't forget that if you equip stuff like United We Stand (with sheep tokens for a 3200 ATK boost) and Mage Power (the more you equip, the more powerful it gets) and finally Big Bang Shot it'll go through ANYTHING like a fusion cutter through paper.

Hey, i got another weakness for ya that would cripple this card before you put him on the field: *beep* Robber
*beep* Robber is a Trap that lets you go through your opponent's deck and remove 1 Equip Card from the whole game. If your opponent used this on you, and you save your equips for this guy, Ben Kei would be a sitting duck.
