Stardust Dragon is the most popular Synchro Monsters in the game, and it is one of the best Synchro Monsters as well.
Jinzo is a Level 6 monster with 2400 ATK and 1500 DEF that negates every Trap Card on the field. Trap Cards cannot be activated at all while Jinzo remains on the field, so your opponent won't be able to protect himself/herself from Jinzo's wrath. However, Jinzo also prevents its controller from playing Trap Cards. There are two ways to counter this. The first method is using Quick Play Spell Cards which can be used at the heat of a battle. The second method is by using the Equip Spell Card, Amplifier on Jinzo. Amplifier is an Equip Spell Card that allows you to use Trap Cards even when you control Jinzo. Once Amplifier is destroyed, then Jinzo is destroyed as well, so make sure you have a card that will prevent Amplifier from being destroyed.

Tyrant Dragon is a Level 8 Dragon-Type monster with 2900 ATK and 2500 DEF that has an awesome effect. First of all, Tyrant Dragon is immune to Trap Cards. Even the nastiest Trap Cards like Mirror Force will have no effect on Tyrant Dragon. Then, during the Battle Phase, if this card attacks, and then there are some monsters on your opponent's side of the field, Tyrant Dragon can attack again. Tyrant Dragon has an incredible effect, but to harness all of this power, there must be a price. Tyrant Dragon can only be Special Summoned from your Graveyard by Tributing 1 Dragon-Type monster. When you Special Summon a monster, you're supposed to get an extra monster, but you have to Tribute 1 of your own monsters to even think about Special Summoning Tyrant Dragon.
Beast King Barbaros
Imagine a monster that you could summon with no Tributes, 2 Tributes, or 3 Tributes. Beast King Barbaros is that kind of monster, and it has 3000 ATK and 1200 DEF. If you want to Normal Summon Beast King Barbaros without Tributing, then its ATK becomes 1900. Beast King Barbaros is still a Level 8 monster when Normal Summoned like this, so XYZ Summoning for a Rank 8 XYZ Monster couldn't be easier. Then, you can Tribute 2 monsters, and nothing happens. Beast King Barbaros is just your typical 3000 ATK and 1900 DEF Yugioh Monster. However, when you Tribute 3 monsters to play Beast King Barbaros, you can destroy ALL cards on your opponent's side of the field without question. Then, Beast King Barbaros can attack directly, and your opponent would lose 3000 life points.
Malefic Cyber End Dragon
Out of all of the non Synchro Malefic monsters featured in the movie booster pack, Malefic Cyber End Dragon is the strongest one with 4000 ATK and 2800 DEF. Imagine getting a monster on your side of the field with 4000 ATK in 1 turn!

Red Nova Dragon
Red Nova Dragon is a Level 12 Synchro Monster with 3500 ATK and 3000 DEF that requires Red Dragon Archfiend and 2 Tuners as the Synchro Materials. These tuners must add up to a level of 4, so Red Nova Dragon is exceptionally hard to play, but the rewards are high. Red Nova Dragon gains 500 ATK for each tuner in your Graveyard, so 90% of the time, Red Nova Dragon will start out with 4500 ATK. Also, Red Nova Dragon cannot be destroyed by card effects. Red Nova Dragon can be targeted by cards like Change of Heart, but since Red Nova Dragon cannot be destroyed by card effects, Red Nova Dragon is a bigger threat to your opponent. When an opponent's monster declares an attack, you can banish this card to negate the attack. If Red Nova Dragon is banished by this effect, then it returns to your side of the field during the End Phase.
Back in the GX days, Yubel was considered the best card in the game.

Your opponent loses ATK equal to the ATK of all of their monsters that battle with Yubel. However, you must Tribute 1 monster on your side of the field once per turn or else Yubel will be destroyed.
