Card Spotlight: Scale Dart

How Is Scale Dart Used?

This card is used mainly by Aquas as a high-damage card and for card draws against Last Stand targets.

Unfortunately, this effect is somewhat hard to activate, especially since Last Stands are hard to come by and predict. 

FUN FACT: This Aquatic Scale Dart card has a twin from the Reptile class, which is also named Scale Dart. They have the same animation, but different body part names (Aquatic: Blue Moon, Reptile: Iguana) and stats.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Scale Dart?

Most of the Axies that use this card are Aquas in AAP (AquaAquaPlant) team compositions. It’s a high-damage back card that can be used in taking out both squishy and tanky Axies. 

Pairing it with Attack+ and using it against tanky classes can help Aquas tilt the scales (pun intended) in their favor. Players usually pair it with Fish Hook and Cockadoodledoo for big damage.

Pros and Cons of the Scale Dart Card


  • high damage and decent shields
  • draw a card when you attack a target in Last Stand


  • effect is only useful against targets that are in Last Stand
  • card draws can impact games, but not to a great degree

Scale Dart Card Synergies

  • Cockadoodledoo
  • while this card is from the Bird class, it can still synergize well with high-damage Aqua cards like Scale Dart because it applies Attack+ to the Axie
  • Fish Hook
  • the Attack+ buff this card provides increases the damage of Scale Dart
  • Upstream Swim
  • A standard card to have on a backline damage dealer Aqua; pairing it with Scale Dart enables your Axie to dish out more damage and win duels
