Card Trivia

 This monster is based on Johannes Kepler.
This is further expressed in the design of the card, which features several orbs racing along on tracks. Kepler postulated the current model of the Solar System that we know today, which was later proven by Galileo Galilei.
This card is a polar opposite to D/D Savant Galilei in terms of its Level, Pendulum Scale and Pendulum Effect.
In the anime, the Pendulum Scale-decreasing effect of this card is explained by this card being an unstable Pendulum Monster prototype.

"You cannot Pendulum Summon monsters, except "D/D" monsters. This effect cannot be negated." effect does not start a Chain Link.: D/D Savant Kepler

"Once per turn, during your Standby Phases: Reduce this card's Pendulum Scales by 2 (min. 1), then destroy all monsters you control with a Level greater than or equal to this card's Pendulum Scales, except "D/D" monsters." effect starts a Chain Link.

"If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can activate 1 of these effects." effect is a Trigger Effect. You choose 1 "●" when this effect is activated.

You can only use the Monster Effect of "D/D Savant Kepler" once per turn by activating 1 of the "●" effects.

This Monster Effect can be activated during the Damage Step.

"Target 1 other "D/D" card you control; return it to the hand." effect targets.

"Add 1 "Dark Contract" card from your Deck to your hand." effect does not target.

Even if the Pendulum Scales of "D/D Savant Kepler" are 2, the Pendulum Effect is still activated during the Standby Phase. In that case, its Pendulum Scales become 1, and the "then" effect is applied. Also, even if the Pendulum Scales of "D/D Savant Kepler" are 1, the Pendulum Effect is still activated during the Standby Phase. In that case, since you cannot reduce the Pendulum Scales beyond 1, the "then" effect is not applied.: If the Pendulum Scales of "D/D Savant Kepler" are 2 or 1, is the Pendulum Effect of "D/D Savant Kepler" activated during the Standby Phase?

If the Pendulum Scales of "D/D Savant Galilei" and "D/D Savant Kepler" have changed by their own effects and their Pendulum Effects are negated by "Spell Canceller", their Pendulum Scales return to their original values written on the card. After that, if the effect of "Spell Canceller" is no longer applied, their Pendulum Scales will start changing again during your Standby Phase, starting from the values written on the card.: If the Pendulum Effect of "D/D Savant Galilei" and "D/D Savant Kepler" are negated by "Spell Canceller", what happens with their Pendulum Scales?

Each time the "Once per turn, during your Standby Phases: Reduce this card's Pendulum Scales by 2 (min. 1), then destroy all monsters you control with a Level greater than or equal to this card's Pendulum Scales, except "D/D" monsters." effect resolves, this card's Pendulum Scales are reduced by 2.
1st time: Pendulum Scale 10 -> Pendulum Scale 8
2nd time: Pendulum Scale 8 -> Pendulum Scale 6
3rd time: Pendulum Scale 6 -> Pendulum Scale 4
4th time: Pendulum Scale 4 -> Pendulum Scale 2
5th time: Pendulum Scale 2 -> Pendulum Scale 1: When the Pendulum Effect of "D/D Savant Kepler" resolves, what happens with the Pendulum Scales?
