Card Trivia

 This monster appears in the artwork of Cyber Repair Plant and Cyber Network.
This card has a retrained counterpart: Chimeratech Megafleet Dragon.
This card has a similar counterpart, Chimeratech Overdragon.
Both this monster and Chimeratech Overdragon are based on the Chimaera, a mythical beast who had three heads; that of a dragon, lion, and goat. More recently, 'chimaera' refers to the idea of combining things that occur naturally, much like both monsters are fused from varying Machine-Type monsters.
This monster's body appears to be made of nine portals. Each portal seems to produce the head of a Cyber Dragon, likely referencing the fact it gains 1000 ATK per monster during Fusion. Including the mouth, this would allow the dragon to have ten heads, likely referencing the number of monsters that can be on both sides of the field at once (until the introduction of Extra Monster Zones in Master Rules 4).
The maximum ATK this card can reach with its effect is 13000. This is achievable with an active DNA Surgery set to Machine and twelve monsters, including Relinquished, or a similar monster, equipped with Cyber Dragon.
This is the first Fusion Monster Special Summoned by Contact Fusion whose Fusion Materials do not have to originate from the side of the field of the player conducting the Contact Fusion.

Rulings

The effect which alters its ATK is a Continuous Effect. The other effects are not treated as effects.

A Fusion Material Monster is a monster written on the card of a Fusion Monster, and which is needed to Special Summon or Fusion Summon the monster from the Extra Deck. Because of this, you cannot send "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon" from your field to the Graveyard to Special Summon another "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon" from your Extra Deck, since you are still using "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon" as a Fusion Material Monster.: Please explain about Fusion Material Monsters.

If "DNA Surgery" turns "Vanity's Fiend" into a Machine, you still cannot Special Summon, so you cannot send "Vanity's Fiend" to the Graveyard to Special Summon "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon".: Can "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon" be Special Summoned by sending "Vanity's Fiend" which is a Machine-Type Monster to the Graveyard?

You may send "Cyber Dragon" equipped to "Relinquished" to the Graveyard to Special Summon "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon".

The ATK gained by "Turret Warrior" is based on the monster's ATK after it is Tributed. If a "Evil HERO Dark Gaia" or "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon" under the effect of "DNA Surgery" is Tributed, ? ATK is treated as 0 ATK, so "Turret Warrior" will have 1200 ATK.: When the ATK of "Turret Warrior" is raised, the increase is the monster's ATK at what time?

When a Pendulum Monster would be sent from the field to the Graveyard, it is placed face-up in the Extra Deck instead. It is not possible to send a Pendulum Monster to the Graveyard to Special Summon "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon"; therefore, you cannot use "Timegazer Magician" being treated as a Machine-Type monster and "Cyber Dragon" to Special Summon it.: If "Timegazer Magician" is treated as a Machine-Type monster because of "DNA Surgery", can it and "Cyber Dragon" be sent to the Graveyard to Special Summon "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon"?
