“Curse of the Dark” Playing Guide Error

Konami apologizes for another product error.

About the “Structure Deck R -Curse of the Dark-” Playing Guide Misprint

The Playing Guide packaged with “Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game Duel Monsters Structure Deck R -Curse of the Dark-” (On Sale March 10th, 2018) contains an error in its description.

In the introduction to using “Fiendish Rhino Warrior” above, it states “~send “Darkest Diabolos, Lord of the Lair” to the GY~” in its text, but the effect of “Fiendish Rhino Warrior” sends only Fiend-Types to the GY, meaning you cannot send the Dragon-Type “Darkest Diabolos, Lord of the Lair” to the GY.

As indicated by the 2nd effect of “Fiendish Rhino Warrior”, please play its effect as “Send 1 Fiend-Type monster to the GY”.

We truly apologize for causing so much trouble to customers. We will improve our internal systems to ensure something like this doesn’t happen in the future, as well as strive to provide products that satisfy our customers.


Of note, the TCG version of the Playing Guide for Lair of Darkness on display at GAMA appears to carry the same mistake.

The basic issue for those not catching on is every other new monster in the Deck, sans Diabolos, and nearly all of its monsters are Fiend-Type, so this likely resulted as “Diabolos is probably a Fiend” for whoever drafted up the booklets.
