- Use its second effect to recycle your "Mezuki" and "Plaguespreader Zombie" that were banished because of their own effects, then play "Card Trooper" to send them back to the Graveyard.
- You can use "Burial from a Different Dimension" to use this card's first effect again. Even better, you can use two or three "Shutendojis" and keep recycling your Zombies by alternating it's two effects.
- You can use "Inferno Reckless Summon" to Summon the others "Shutendoji".
- Most Zombies are DARK, so you can use "Escape from the Dark Dimension" to Special Summon one of the banished Zombies.
- Bring back "Vampire Lord" after Summoning "Vampire Genesis". Then you can either Summon it or toss it for its counterpart's effect.
- If your opponent has a non-optional, Continuous Card with an effect that will inevitably mill your Deck somewhat, you can set either a "Mezuki" to be sent back to the Graveyard, or set up "Fear from the Dark" and/or "Despair from the Dark" for a Special Summon.
- Use this card to return Zombies that require certain Summoning conditions (i.e. "Immortal Ruler" and "Kasha").
- You can use this card and "Return from the Different Dimension" to bring back your banish "Mezuki" and "Plaguespreader Zombie" to Synchro and then re-Synchro. This combo can give you either 2 Level 6 Synchros or 2 Level 8 Synchros, plus hand control.
- Use its drawing effect in a combo with "Soul Absorption", that way you gain 1000 Life Points. Even better, banish 1 or 2 copies of "Necroface" to gain 1000 Life Points + 5000 Life Points per "Necroface".
- Use this card with "Zombie World" to combo with "Return from the Different Dimension" better since you can now banish any 2 monsters you want to draw 1 card.
- Along with the above combo, you can also abuse this card in a "Elemental HERO" Deck. First Summon "Shutendoji" and play "Zombie World" turning all monsters on the field and in the Graveyard into Zombies. Activate the first effect of "Shutendoji" and banish any 2 "Elemental HERO" monsters from your Graveyard and draw 1 card. Then play "Parallel World Fusion" and return them to your Deck to Fusion Summon the appropriate Fusion Monster. By doing this combo, you have effectively used both of the effects of "Shutendoji" in 1 turn, but with better results.
- After using its effect to return a Zombie-Type monster to the top of your Deck, Special Summon "Glow-Up Bulb" with it's own effect. Not only has the Zombie-Type monster returned to the Graveyard, you will also have the materials necessary to Synchro Summon "Naturia Beast".
