Q: If I have Archfiend Eccentrick in my Pendulum Zone, am I able to Special Summon Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Alich, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Rubik, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Calcab, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Farfa, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Libic, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Cagna, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, Draghig, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, or Barbar, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss from my hand using their effects?
A: Since Pendulum Monsters in the Pendulum Zones are treated as Spell Cards, even if there are no Spell/Trap Cards in your Spell & Trap Zone, you still have a Spell Card on your side of the field. Therefore, in this situation, you cannot activate the Special Summoning effect of Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, etc.

Q: If Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss was sent to the Graveyard this turn, but is removed from the Graveyard before the End Phase, can I still activate its effect that adds a Level 3 DARK Fiend-Type monster from my Deck to my hand?
A: The effect of Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is an effect that activates in the Graveyard, during the End Phase of the turn it was sent to the Graveyard. If Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is removed from your Graveyard before the End Phase, you cannot activate its effect.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17030&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: If Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is sent to the Graveyard during the End Phase, can I activate its effect that adds a Level 3 DARK Fiend-Type monster from my Deck to my hand immediately?
A: The effect of Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss does not create a chain at the time it is sent to the Graveyard. Therefore, even if Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is sent to the Graveyard during the End Phase, you cannot activate its effect immediately at that time. Similarly, if Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is discarded for your hand size limit, you cannot activate the effect of Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17233&keyword=&tag=-1

(This ruling is telling you that the effect does not activate in response to Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss being sent to the Graveyard, like the other “Burning Abyss” monsters, but rather activates in an open gamestate. This ruling does NOT mean that you would not be able to use the effect during the same End Phase; you simply need to wait for the gamestate to open during the End Phase. Although if Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is discarded for hand size limit, you do not have an opportunity to activate its effect at all.)

Q: Hero Mask is activated by targeting Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss. In this case, will Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss be destroyed by its own effect?
A: In this scenario, when Hero Mask resolves, Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is treated as having the name of the “Elemental HERO” monster sent to the Graveyard, and is no longer considered a “Burning Abyss” monster. Therefore, Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is destroyed by its own effect.

Q: Can the effect of Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss Special Summon Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss or Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss from the Graveyard?
A: Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss must be Ritual Summoned, while Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss must be Fusion Summoned, and neither can be Special Summoned by other ways. Therefore, neither Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss nor Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss can be targeted with the effect of Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss.

Q: Can I Special Summon Tour Bus From the Underworld with the effect of Libic, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss?
A: The effect of Libic, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss can Special Summon any Level 3 DARK Fiend-Type monster from your hand, even if it isn’t a “Burning Abyss” monster. Note that if you do Special Summon Tour Bus From the Underworld, since its effect is one that activates in the Graveyard, that effect will be applied normally and is not negated by Libic, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss.

Q: When activating the effect of Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss, do I have to select a target monster that has higher ATK and DEF than the ATK and DEF of the monster I sent from my hand to the Graveyard to activate it?
A: The effect of Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss can target any face-up monster on your opponent’s side of the field, even if its ATK and DEF are lower than the ATK and DEF of the monster you send to the Graveyard. For example, if you send Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss (ATK 1000/DEF 1500) from your hand to the Graveyard to activate this effect, you can target Alexandrite Dragon (ATK 2000/DEF 100), resulting in Alexandrite Dragon having 1000 ATK and 0 DEF.

Q: Can the first effect of Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss be activated by targeting a monster with 0 ATK and DEF?
A: You can target a monster with 0 ATK and DEF with the effect of Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss. For example, you can activate this effect by sending Libic, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss (ATK 1300/DEF 700) from your hand to the Graveyard, targeting Battle Fader (ATK 0/DEF 0). Battle Fader will still have 0 ATK and DEF, but because the effect of Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss was applied, even if Battle Fader is then equipped with United We Stand and its ATK/DEF are increased, you must recalculate its ATK/DEF and include the decreased values.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17230&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: If the effect of Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss is activated by sending Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss to the Graveyard, but The Transmigration Prophecy is chained to this effect so that Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss is no longer in the Graveyard when the effect of Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss resolves, is the effect applied?
A: Even if a monster that you sent to the Graveyard to activate the effect of Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss is no longer in the Graveyard when this effect resolves, the effect is applied normally. (In this scenario, since Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss was sent to the Graveyard, the targeted monster loses 1600 ATK and 1200 DEF.)

Q: If a Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss that I own changes control to my opponent by the effect of Creature Swap, and then it is destroyed by battle or card effect, can the effect that sends 1 random card from the opponent’s hand to the Graveyard be activated?
A: Even if Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss switched control to your opponent’s side of the field, and is then destroyed by battle, you can then activate its effect that sends 1 random card from your opponent’s hand to the Graveyard. (You, the owner of Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss, can activate the effect.) Also, if Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss switched control to your opponent’s side of the field, and is then sent to the Graveyard by a card effect, the effect that sends 1 random card from your opponent’s hand to the Graveyard cannot be activated.

A: Since you can only have 1 face-up Virgil, Rock Star of the Burning Abyss on your side of the field, in this scenario, you must destroy 1 of the 2 copies that are flipped face-up. Note that the destroyed Virgil, Rock Star of the Burning Abyss is not treated as having been destroyed by a card effect, so you cannot activate its effect to draw 1 card.

Q: I have my opponent’s Calcab, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss in my hand that was added by the effect of Exchange. When activating the effect of Virgil, Rock Star of the Burning Abyss that shuffles an opponent’s card into the Deck, can I target the same Calcab, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss that I discarded to my opponent’s Graveyard as a cost?

This does not mean they are sent to the Graveyard again, so the effects of Libic, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss and Cagna, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss that activate in the Graveyard cannot be used.

A: While the effect of Degenerate Circuit is applying, monsters that are returned to the hand are banished instead. Since you are unable to fulfil the Special Summoning requirement of returning a “U.A.” monster to your hand, you cannot Special Summon U.A. Mighty Slugger, etc. by its own effect.

A: In this scenario, if Vanity’s Emptiness is applying when the effect of U.A. Midfielder resolves, you will not be able to Special Summon monsters, so the part of the effect that returns the targeted monster to the hand is applied, but you cannot Special Summon a different monster from your hand.

Midfielder cannot be activated.

A: If the same monster is equipped with 2 copies of U.A. Powered Jersey, that monster will gain 2000 ATK, but the battle damage inflicted to your opponent is only doubled once.

A: If a monster equipped with U.A. Powered Jersey becomes unaffected by Spell effects, the effect that increases the equipped monster’s ATK and doubles the battle damage it inflicts to your opponent is not applied. Therefore, in this scenario, U.A. Perfect Ace has 700 ATK and 2500 DEF, and battle damage it inflicts is not doubled.

A: No, it cannot. The effect of U.A. Powered Jersey only allows the equipped monster to attack once in addition to its normal attack during each Battle Phase. Therefore, even if the monster equipped with U.A. Powered Jersey makes a second attack and destroys another monster by battle, the effect cannot be activated again. (The effect of U.A.

Q: If the effect of U.A. Powered Jersey that banishes the equipped monster is activated during my Standby Phase, but Forbidden Lance or Imperial Iron Wall are chained. In that case, if the equipped monster is not banished by the effect, will that effect still activate again during my next Standby Phase?
A: The effect of U.A. Powered Jersey that banishes the equipped monster is a mandatory effect that activates during each of your Standby Phases. If the effect of Forbidden Lance or Imperial Iron Wall is applied, and the equipped monster is not banished, it and the equipped U.A. Powered Jersey remain on the field.

Q: U.A. Perfect Ace, U.A. Midfielder, and Panzer Dragon are face-up on my side of the field, whereas Gem-Knight Pearl is face-up on my opponent’s side of the field. If I activate U.A. Turnover Tactics, how does it resolve?
A: The effect of U.A. Turnover Tactics returns all monsters on the field to their owner’s Decks. At this time, any Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz Monster on the field is returned to the Extra Deck, and is not included in the number of cards returned to the Main Deck. In this scenario, you returned 2 cards to your Main Deck, while your opponent did not return any. Therefore, although you are able to Special Summon monsters from your Deck, your opponent does not Special Summon any monsters from theirs.

A: The effect of U.A. Turnover Tactics returns all monsters on the field to their owner’s Decks. At this time, Tokens cannot be returned to the Deck, and are simply removed from the field, so they are not included in the number of cards returned to the Main Deck. Also, Zoma the Spirit will return to the Deck normally, so it is included in the number of cards returned to the Main Deck. In this scenario, you returned 2 cards to your Main Deck, while your opponent returned 1 card to theirs. Therefore, although you are able to Special Summon monsters from your Deck, your opponent does not Special Summon any monsters from theirs. Therefore, after you Special Summon monsters from your Deck, your opponent can Special Summon 1 monster from their Deck.

Q: I activate the first effect of Old Entity Hastorr, targeting an opponent’s Tri-Horned Dragon. If Book of Moon is chained to this effect, and Tri-Horned Dragon is changed to face-down Defense Position, how does the effect of Old Entity Hastorr resolve?

Q: While Old Entity Hastorr is equipped to a monster by its own effect, and then Forbidden Lance is activated so that the equipped monster becomes unaffected by Spell effects, what happens?
A: If Forbidden Lance is applied to a monster equipped with Old Entity Hastorr, Old Entity Hastorr remains equipped to that monster, but since the monster becomes unaffected by Spell effects, it is able to attack and its effects are no longer negated. Once the effect of Forbidden Lance stops applying, if Old Entity Hastorr is still equipped to that monster, the effects apply again, and the equipped monster cannot attack and its effects are negated.

Q: Old Entity Hastorr is equipped by its own effect to an opponent’s Giga Gagagigo. In this scenario, if my opponent Normal Summons Tsukuyomi and uses its effect to change Giga Gagagigo to face-down Defense Position, will the second effect of Old Entity Hastorr activate and take control of the equipped monster?
A: In this scenario, when the equipped monster is changed to face-down Defense Position, Old Entity Hastorr loses its target, so it is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard. Since Old Entity Hastorr is not treated as leaving the field while equipped to an opponent’s monster, its effect that takes control of the equipped monster cannot activate.

Q: Old Entity Hastorr is equipped by its own effect to an opponent’s Kaiser Glider. In this scenario, Mystical Space Typhoon is activated, and the equipped Old Entity Hastorr is destroyed. When the second effect of Old Entity Hastorr activates, but Forbidden Lance is chained so that Kaiser Glider becomes unaffected by Spell effects, how does the effect of Old Entity Hastorr resolve?
A: The effect of Old Entity Hastorr that takes control of the monster it was equipped to is a monster effect, not a Spell effect. Therefore, even if the monster that was equipped with Old Entity Hastorr (Kaiser Glider in this scenario) becomes unaffected by Spell effects, the effect is applied normally and you take control of it.

A: If Outer Entity Azzathoth is Xyz Summoned while the effect of Skill Drain is applying, the effect of Outer Entity Azzathoth is negated and is not applied. (During this turn, even if the effect of Skill Drain stops applying, the effect will not apply.) Also, if Skill Drain is activated after the first effect of Outer Entity Azzathoth has already been applied, the effect will not be negated.

Also, if Call of the Haunted is chained to The Unspeakable Trapezohedron, so that out of Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz, I now have all 3 of those types of monsters on my side of the field when The Unspeakable Trapezohedron resolves, is the effect applied?
A: When resolving The Unspeakable Trapezohedron, if you only have 1 out of the 3 types of monsters on the field, or if you have all 3, the effect The Unspeakable Trapezohedron is not applied.

Q: If The Unspeakable Trapezohedron is activated while I have a Synchro and Fusion Monster on my side of the field, but Mystical Space Typhoon is chained and The Unspeakable Trapezohedron is destroyed, how will the effect of The Unspeakable Trapezohedron resolve?
A: In this scenario, if The Unspeakable Trapezohedron has been destroyed by the time its effect resolves, you will still Special Summon an “Outer Entity” Xyz Monster from your Extra Deck, but The Unspeakable Trapezohedron will not be attached to it as an Xyz Material.

Q: If Cyber Dragon and other Machine-Type monsters on the field are sent to the Graveyard to Special Summon Chimeratech Fortress Dragon from the Extra Deck, can the “● Fusion:” effect of Dreamland is activated?
A: Monsters that are sent to the Graveyard to Special Summon Chimeratech Fortress Dragon are not considered sent to the Graveyard by a card effect, so the “● Fusion:” effect of Dreamland cannot be activated. But since Chimeratech Fortress Dragon is a Fusion Monster, if a monster is then sent from the hand or field to the Graveyard by a card effect, you can then use the “● Fusion:” effect of Dreamland.

A: In this scenario, when Jormungardr the Nordic Serpent is Special Summoned in face-down Defense Position, the effect of Gaap the Divine Soldier immediately changes it to face-up Attack Position, but since Jormungardr the Nordic Serpent was not changed from face-up Defense Position to face-up Attack Position, its effect that inflicts damage will not activate.

Q: Thor, Lord of the Aesir and Fenrir the Nordic Wolf are both face-up on my opponent’s side of the field in Attack Position, whereas The Legendary Fisherman III is face-up on my side of the field in Attack Position. If I activated the last effect of The Legendary Fisherman III this turn, so that the next damage my opponent takes this turn is doubled, and then The Legendary Fisherman III attacks Fenrir the Nordic Wolf, how much damage does each player receive?
A: In this scenario, damage calculation is performed using The Legendary Fisherman III (ATK 2500) and Fenrir the Nordic Wolf (ATK 4000), and you will take battle damage equal to the difference (1500). The effect of Fenrir the Nordic Wolf also applies, meaning that your opponent also takes the battle damage. At this time, the effect of The Legendary Fisherman III applies and doubles that battle damage. Therefore, in this situation, you will take 1500 damage while your opponent takes 3000 damage. (Also note that the effect of The Legendary Fisherman III prevents it from being destroyed by this battle.)

Q: If a Minerva, Lightsworn Maiden that is unaffected by Spell effects due to Forbidden Lance would be destroyed by battle, can I apply the last effect of Lightsworn Sanctuary and remove 2 Shine Counters instead?
A: If the effect of Forbidden Lance is applied, so that Minerva, Lightsworn Maiden is unaffected by Spell effects, you can apply the effect of Lightsworn Sanctuary when Minerva, Lightsworn Maiden would be destroyed by battle and remove 2 Shine Counters instead. (If the effect is applied, Minerva, Lightsworn Maiden is not destroyed by that battle, and remains on the field.)

Q: If I have 2 copies of Lightsworn Sanctuary on my side of the field, with 2 Shine Counters each, and a Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn on my side of the field would be destroyed, can I apply the effects of each Lightsworn Sanctuary?
A: In this scenario, if you want to apply the effect of a Lightsworn Sanctuary, you can choose 1 with which to apply the effect, and remove 2 Shine Counters from your side of the field. (You will not be able to apply the effect of the other Lightsworn Sanctuary at the same time.)

Q: While Dragon Horn Hunter is in my Pendulum Zone, my B. Dragon Jungle King attacks my opponent directly. If my opponent activates Dimension Wall, what happens to the battle damage inflicted during this battle?
A: In this scenario, if your opponent activates Dimension Wall, you will take any battle damage inflicted to them from this battle. Due to the effect of Dragon Horn Hunter, the ATK of B. Dragon Jungle King is increased to 2300, but battle damage you take from battles involving it becomes 0. Therefore, neither player will take battle damage from this battle.

Q: If a Relief Squad treated as a Normal Monster by its own effect destroys an opponent’s monster by battle, can I activate the effect of Dragoons of Draconia in my Pendulum Zone?

Q: Dragonpulse Magician and P.M. Captor are both in my Pendulum Zones. In this scenario, if I Pendulum Summon Zombie Master and Noble Dragon Magician, can I activate the Pendulum Effect of P.M. Captor?
A: In this scenario, even if you Pendulum Summon a Zombie-Type monster and non-Zombie-Type monster at the same time, you can activate the Pendulum Effect of P.M. Captor.

Q: Zombie World is face-up in my Field Zone, whereas P.M. Captor and Foucault’s Cannon are both in my Pendulum Zones. In this scenario, if Flash Knight and Archfiend Eccentrick are Pendulum Summoned, can I activate the Pendulum Effect of P.M. Captor?
A: In this scenario, since the effect of Zombie World changes all monsters on the field and Graveyards to Zombie-Type, even if you Pendulum Summon a monster that is not originally Zombie-Type, you can activate the Pendulum Effect of P.M. Captor. (Neither Flash Knight nor Archfiend Eccentrick will be destroyed by battle or card effects this turn.)

If DNA Surgery is chained to this effect, declaring Zombie-Type, how will the effect of P.M. Captor resolve?
A: In this scenario, when resolving the Pendulum Effect of P.M. Captor, even if a non-Zombie-Type monster that was Pendulum Summoned has become a Zombie-Type monster, the effect of P.M. Captor is only applied to the monster that was Zombie-Type when Pendulum Summoned. (In this scenario, the effect is only applied to Zombie Master, so only Zombie Master is not destroyed by battle or card effects this turn.)

Q: Is Spiritual Whisper considered a “Gishki” monster?
A: Spiritual Whisper is not a “Gishki” monster.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17047&keyword=&tag=-1

(The “Gishki” archetype is “Ritua” in the OCG, a corruption of the English word “Ritual”, just as “Gishki” itself is a corruption of the Japanese word for ritual. Since this card’s name is also pronounced phonetically in English for the OCG, a Japanese reader would read the “ritua” part of “Spiritual”.)

Q: If Heavy Knight of the Flame attacks a monster that was Special Summoned in face-down Defense Position by the effect of The Shallow Grave, can the effect of Heavy Knight of the Flame be activated?
A: Even if Heavy Knight of the Flame attacks a monster that was Special Summoned in face-down Defense Position, the effect of Heavy Knight of the Flame can be activated. (Note that the opponent’s monster will be banished face-up.)

Q: If BOXer has 2 or more A-Counters on it, can I send it to the Graveyard to activate its effect that Special Summons an EARTH monster from my Deck? Also, if BOXer has any A-Counters on it, can I use them to apply the effect that removes a counter from it instead when BOXer would be destroyed?
A: Only the counters that BOXer gains by destroying an opponent’s monster by battle and sending it to the Graveyard can be used when activating its effect that Special Summons an EARTH monster from your Deck, or applying the effect of removing a counter instead when BOXer would be destroyed. A-Counters placed on BOXer cannot be used for either of these effects.

Q: If BOXer destroys an opponent’s Embodiment of Apophis treated as a monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard, can I activate its effect that places 1 counter on it?
A: When Embodiment of Apophis is destroyed by battle, it is treated only as a Trap Card in the Graveyard. In this scenario, BOXer is not considered to have destroyed an opponent’s monster by battle and sent it to Graveyard, so its effect cannot be activated.

Q: If there are 2 copies of Kabuki Dragon face-up on my side of the field, can both of their effects be activated when a monster I control attacks an opponent’s monster?
A: In this scenario, if you want to activate the effects of both copies of Kabuki Dragon that change the battle position of your opponent’s battling monster, their effects form a chain before damage calculation. Note that if there are 2 copies of Kabuki Dragon face-up on your side of the field, and an opponent’s monster attacks during your opponent’s turn, you can also activate the second effects of each Kabuki Dragon on the same chain, and they will resolve similarly.

Q: If Blade Rabbit is changed from face-up Defense Position to Attack Position by either effect of Kabuki Dragon, can the effect of Blade Rabbit be activated?
A: If Blade Rabbit is changed from face-up Defense Position to Attack Position by the effect of Kabuki Dragon, the effect of Blade Rabbit will activate before damage calculation. (Incidentally, if the attacking monster is then destroyed by the effect of Blade Rabbit, damage calculation cannot be performed, and the Damage Step ends.)

Q: If the effect of Hero Mask has been applied to Fiendish Rhino Warrior, so that its name is treated as Elemental HERO Sparkman, can Fiendish Rhino Warrior be destroyed by battle or card effects?

Q: While the effect of Cuben is applying, if the die result was 2, can Level 2 monsters be Normal Set or Special Summoned in face-down Defense Position by the effect of The Shallow Grave?
A: In this scenario, neither player can Normal or Special Summon Level 2 monsters. You can still Normal Set a monster in face-down Defense Position, but because The Shallow Grave Special Summons monsters, you cannot target a Level 2 monster with The Shallow Grave.

Q: While the effect of Cuben is applying, if the die result was 4, but then Cuben changes control by the effect of Creature Swap, does the effect still apply normally?
A: In this scenario, if the effect of Cuben has already resolved, even if Cuben changes control to your opponent by the effect of Creature Swap, its effect will continue applying normally. (In this case, neither player can Normal or Special Summon Level 4 monsters.)

Q: While the effect of Cuben is applying, if the die result was 3, but then Skill Drain is activated, does the effect still apply normally?

Q: If Carrot Man is in my Graveyard, can I activate its effect by sending a Warrior-Type monster on the field to the Graveyard whose Type has been changed to Plant-Type by the effect of DNA Surgery?

Q: If Carrot Man is in my Graveyard, can I activate its effect by sending a Carrot Man on the field to the Graveyard whose name has been changed to Elemental HERO Clayman by the effect of Hero Mask?
A: When activating the effect of Carrot Man in your Graveyard, you cannot send a Carrot Man on the field to the Graveyard to pay the cost. But in this scenario, since the effect of Hero Mask has been applied and the card name of Carrot Man is treated as Elemental HERO Clayman instead, you can send it to the Graveyard to activate the effect of a Carrot Man in your Graveyard.

Q: While the effect of Macro Cosmos is applying, can the effect of Kentaurus be activated?
A: Even in this scenario, you can activate the effect of Kentaurus. In that case, the Beast, Beast-Warrior, or Winged Beast-Type monster that you would send to the Graveyard from your hand or Deck is banished instead, so the part of the effect that increases this card’s ATK is not applied.

Q: While the effect of Dimension Fortress Weapon is applying, can the effect of Kentaurus be activated?
A: Even while the effect of Dimension Fortress Weapon is applying, as long as you have a Beast, Beast-Warrior, or Winged Beast-Type monster in your hand, you can activate the effect of Kentaurus. (If you only have them in your Deck, you cannot activate the effect of Kentaurus.) In that case, the Beast, Beast-Warrior, or Winged Beast-Type monster is sent from your hand to the Graveyard, and Kentaurus gains ATK equal to its Level × 100.

Q: My opponent’s monster attacks my Dinosewing, and its effect that increases its ATK and DEF activates. During this Battle Step, if I activate Call of the Haunted so that a replay occurs, and my opponent chooses Dinosewing as their attack target once again, will its effect activate a second time?
A: The effect of Dinosewing activates not only when targeted for an attack during attack declaration, but also when targeted for an attack when a replay occurs. In this scenario, if the effect of Dinosewing activates, and then a replay occurs, so that Dinosewing is targeted for the attack once again, its effect will activate again and it will gain a further 1000 ATK and DEF.

Q: If Parent Seahorse is excavated by the effects of Monster Gate or Reasoning, what happens?
A: Parent Seahorse is a monster that can be Normal Summoned/Set, but it cannot be Special Summoned except by a Wyrm-Type monster’s effect. Therefore, when resolving Monster Gate or Reasoning, if Parent Seahorse is excavated, Parent Seahorse and the other excavated cards are sent to the Graveyard, and the effect finishes resolving.

Q: If the effect of Parent Seahorse was previously used, and then Skill Drain is activated, what happens to the Level of Parent Seahorse?
A: In this scenario, if the effects of Parent Seahorse are negated by Skill Drain, its Level returns to its original value. (Afterward, even if the effect of Skill Drain stops applying, the previous Level reductions are not reapplied.)

Q: If the effect of Parent Seahorse is activated, but then Book of Moon or Compulsory Evacuation Device are chained so that Parent Seahorse is not face-up on the field when its effect resolves, is the effect of Parent Seahorse applied?
A: When resolving the effect of Parent Seahorse, if Parent Seahorse itself is not face-up on the field, since its Level cannot be reduced, the part of the effect that Special Summons a Seahorse Token also does not apply.

Q: If the effect of Parent Seahorse is activated, but then Vanity’s Emptiness is chained, how does the effect of Parent Seahorse resolve?

Q: If the effect of Parent Seahorse is activated, but either the activation or the effect itself is negated, how many more times can I activate the effect of Parent Seahorse that turn?
A: You can only use the effect of Parent Seahorse up to 3 times per turn, even if you control multiple copies of it. In this scenario, even if the effect of Parent Seahorse or its activation are negated, that still means you used the effect of Parent Seahorse once this turn. (If that was the first time you used the effect of Parent Seahorse that turn, you can activate the effect 2 more times this turn.)

Q: While the effect of Macro Cosmos is applying, can Fusion Substitute be activated?

Q: A Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon that was Special Summoned by the effect of Cyber-Stein is then destroyed and sent to the Graveyard by Torrential Tribute. During my Main Phase, if I have Fusion Substitute in my Graveyard, can I activate its second effect by targeting the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon that was not properly Fusion Summoned?
A: The second effect of Fusion Substitute is activated by targeting any Fusion Monster in your Graveyard, even if that Fusion Monster was first Special Summoned by a method other than Fusion Summon, or even sent directly from the Extra Deck to the Graveyard by an effect such as Zaborg the Mega Monarch. (Thus, in this situation, if the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon that was Special Summoned by the effect of Cyber-Stein is then sent to the Graveyard, it can be targeted with the second effect of Fusion Substitute.)

Q: Can Moon Mirror Shield be equipped to an opponent’s monster? If possible, will the effect of Moon Mirror Shield that changes the equipped monster’s ATK and DEF activate?
A: Moon Mirror Shield can be equipped to an opponent’s monster. However, the effect of Moon Mirror Shield will only activate when the equipped monster battles an opponent’s monster, and “the opponent” is always viewed from the perspective of the controller of Moon Mirror Shield. Therefore, if Moon Mirror Shield is equipped to an opponent’s monster, its effect will not activate.

Q: A Warrior Dai Grepher (ATK 1700/DEF 1600) equipped with Moon Mirror Shield is face-up on my side of the field, whereas an Axe Raider (ATK 1700/DEF 1150) equipped with my opponent’s Moon Mirror Shield is face-up on their side of the field. In this case, if these two monsters battle, how will the effects of each Moon Mirror Shield resolve?
A: In this scenario, the effect of the turn player’s Moon Mirror Shield is Chain Link 1, and the effect of the opponent’s Moon Mirror Shield is Chain Link 2. For example, if Axe Raider is attacking, the effect of the opponent’s Moon Mirror Shield is Chain Link 2 and resolves first, making both the ATK and DEF of Warrior Dai Grepher become 1800. Then, when the Chain Link 1 effect resolves, the ATK and DEF of Axe Raider both become 1900.

Q: A Gaia the Fierce Knight (ATK 2300/DEF 2100) equipped with Moon Mirror Shield is face-up on my side of the field, whereas The Wicked Avatar is face-up on my opponent’s side of the field. In this case, if these two monsters battle, how are the effects of Moon Mirror Shield and The Wicked Avatar applied?
A: In this scenario, the effect of The Wicked Avatar makes its ATK and DEF each become 100 higher than the ATK of Gaia the Fierce Knight, in other words 2400. If Gaia the Fierce Knight and The Wicked Avatar battle, upon entering damage calculation, the effect of Moon Mirror Shield makes the ATK and DEF of Gaia the Fierce Knight become 2500. Therefore, since the ATK of the other monster on the field with the highest ATK has changed, the ATK and DEF of The Wicked Avatar is recalculated, and when damage calculation is performed, the ATK and DEF of The Wicked Avatar will be 2600.

Q: A Dark Blade (ATK 1800/DEF 1500) equipped with Moon Mirror Shield is face-up on my side of the field, whereas a Warrior of Zera (ATK 1600/DEF 1600) affected by Forbidden Lance is face-up on my opponent’s side of the field. In this case, if these two monsters battle, how is the effect of Moon Mirror Shield applied?
A: In this scenario, firstly, the effect of Forbidden Lance makes Warrior of Zera lose 800 ATK, so its ATK is currently 800 and its DEF is 1600. Also, since the effect of Moon Mirror Shield is not one that affects the opponent’s monster that the equipped monster is battling, even if that opponent’s monster is unaffected by Spell effects, the effect of Moon Mirror Shield applies normally. Therefore, in this situation, if Dark Blade and Warrior of Zera battle, the effect of Moon Mirror Shield makes the ATK and DEF of Dark Blade become 1700, and damage calculation is performed.

Q: If the second effect of Dice Roll Battle is activated, and one of the battling monsters is equipped with Moon Mirror Shield, will the effect of Moon Mirror Shield activate?

Q: If I activated Pendulum Impenetrable this turn, can my opponent activate their own Pendulum Impenetrable?
A: During the turn the effect of your Pendulum Impenetrable is applying, your opponent can still activate their Pendulum Impenetrable. In that case, since the effects of both copies of Pendulum Impenetrable are applying, cards in the Pendulum Zones are not destroyed by either player’s card effects, and the effects of any player’s cards that target them are negated.

Q: During my opponent’s turn, if I activate Pendulum Impenetrable, can my opponent activate the Pendulum Effect of their Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon during the End Phase?
A: Even if the effect of Pendulum Impenetrable that was activated during your opponent’s turn is applying, your opponent can activate the Pendulum Effect of Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon. In that case, since Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is not destroyed by its own effect, your opponent also does not add a Pendulum Monster with 1500 or less ATK from your Deck to their hand.

Q: I activated Pendulum Impenetrable this turn. During this turn, if my opponent activates the effect of their Aromage Cananga that is being affected by Forbidden Lance, targeting a card in the Pendulum Zone, how will its effect resolve?
A: In this scenario, since your opponent’s Aromage Cananga is unaffected by Spell effects, its effect is not negated by Pendulum Impenetrable, and the targeted card is returned to the hand normally.

Q: I activated Pendulum Impenetrable this turn. During this turn, if my opponent activates Icarus Attack, targeting a Dragonox, the Empowered Warrior in the Pendulum Zone and an Empowering Armory in the Field Zone, how does it resolve?
A: In this scenario, since your opponent’s Icarus Attack is targeting a card in the Pendulum Zone, it is negated by the effect of Pendulum Impenetrable. (Neither targeted card is destroyed.)
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17060&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: I activated Pendulum Impenetrable this turn. During this turn, my opponent activates Icarus Attack, targeting a Dragonox, the Empowered Warrior in the Pendulum Zone and an Empowering Armory in the Field Zone. This time, if the effect of my Constellar Pleiades is chained, returning Dragonox, the Empowered Warrior to the hand, how will Icarus Attack resolve?
A: In this scenario, if the Dragonox, the Empowered Warrior that was targeted by your opponent’s Icarus Attack is no longer in the Pendulum Zone when Icarus Attack resolves, the effect of Icarus Attack is applied normally. (In this case, only Empowering Army is destroyed.)
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17057&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: I activated Pendulum Impenetrable this turn. During this turn, if my opponent activates the effect of Number 66: Master Key Beetle by targeting a Dragodeus, the Empowered Warrior in the Pendulum Zone, how will it resolve?
A: In this scenario, since the effect of Number 66: Master Key Beetle is an opponent’s card effect targeting a card in the Pendulum Zone, the effect is negated by Pendulum Impenetrable. In this case, rather than continuing to target the selected card, even after the effect of Pendulum Impenetrable stops applying, the effect of Number 66: Master Key Beetle will not start applying. (Also note, the targeted card cannot be used to apply second effect of Number 66: Master Key Beetle if it would be destroyed.)

Q: My opponent previously activated the effect of Number 66: Master Key Beetle by targeting a Dragodeus, the Empowered Warrior in their Pendulum Zone. In this situation, if I activate Pendulum Impenetrable, what happens to the effect of Number 66: Master Key Beetle?
A: In this scenario, since it already resolved, the effect of your opponent’s Number 66: Master Key Beetle is not negated.

Q: I activated Pendulum Impenetrable this turn. During this turn, if my opponent activates Raigeki Break by targeting a monster in my Monster Zone, but I chain the effect of Cairngorgon, Antiluminescent Knight, and make Raigeki Break target a card in my Pendulum Zone instead, how does its effect resolve?
A: In this scenario, if the effect of Cairngorgon, Antiluminescent Knight makes Raigeki Break target a card in the Pendulum Zone instead, the effect of Raigeki Break becomes an opponent’s card effect targeting a card in the Pendulum Zone, so it is negated by Pendulum Impenetrable. Since the effect of your Cairngorgon, Antiluminescent Knight is not an opponent’s card effect targeting a card in the Pendulum Zone, it is applied normally.

Q: While both players have 0 cards in their hand, can I activate Mischief of the Gnomes, or the second effect of Mischief of the Gnomes?
A: If you and your opponent both have 0 cards in your hands, you can activate Mischief of the Gnomes or its effect. Even in this case, monsters that are then added to the hand during this turn will have their Levels reduced by 1.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17216&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: If 2 copies of Mischief of the Gnomes are activated during the same turn, will the Levels of monsters in the hand be reduced by 2? Also, if Mischief of the Gnomes is activated, and then its second effect is activated during the same turn, will the Levels of monsters in the hand be reduced by 2?
A: If 2 copies of Mischief of the Gnomes are activated, or if both Mischief of the Gnomes and its second effect are activated, during the same turn, each effect that reduces the Levels of all monsters in the hand is reduced by 1 applies, so the result is that all monsters in the hand will have their Levels reduced by 2.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17066&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: While the effect of Mischief of the Gnomes is applying, I Normal Set a Vice Dragon that had its Level reduced by 1. This turn, if Vice Dragon is flipped face-up by Ceasefire, what will its Level be?
A: In this scenario, if Vice Dragon was Set in face-down Defense Position and then flipped face-up by Ceasefire, since the effect of Mischief of the Gnomes is still applying, its Level will be 4.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17064&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: While the effect of Mischief of the Gnomes is applying, I Normal Summon a Cyber Dragon that had its Level reduced by 1. This turn, if Cyber Dragon is changed to face-down Defense Position by Book of Moon, what will its Level be?
A: In this scenario, if the effect of Mischief of the Gnomes is applied to Cyber Dragon, and then Cyber Dragon is changed to face-down Defense Position by Book of Moon, its Level returns to its original value written on the card (5).

Q: The effect of Mischief of the Gnomes is applying. If I Tribute Summon Apoqliphort Towers, what will its Level be?
A: In this scenario, if the effect of Mischief of the Gnomes is applying, the Level of Apoqliphort Towers in your hand is reduced to 9. If you then successfully Tribute Summon Apoqliphort Towers, even though its effect makes it unaffected by Trap effects, its Level remains reduced by 1.

Q: If Rocket Hand is activated, but Zero Gravity is chained so that the targeted monster is changed to Defense Position, how does Rocket Hand resolve? Also, if a monster equipped with Rocket Hand is changed to Defense Position by the effect of Zero Gravity, what happens to Rocket Hand?
A: When resolving Rocket Hand, even if the targeted monster has been changed to face-up Defense Position, Rocket Hand is equipped to it normally. Also, if a monster is already equipped with Rocket Hand, and is then changed to Defense Position, Rocket Hand is not destroyed. (Incidentally, even if the equipped monster is in Defense Position, you can activate the effect of Rocket Hand that destroys 1 face-up card on the field.)

Q: If Rocket Hand is activated by targeting Robotic Knight, but then my opponent chains Nitwit Outwit by discarding The Six Samurai – Irou, how does Rocket Hand resolve?
A: In this scenario, the targeted Robotic Knight loses 1700 ATK, so its ATK becomes less than 800, but even so the activated Rocket Hand resolves normally and equips to it.

Q: When the effect of Rocket Hand that destroys 1 face-up card on the field is applied, will the ATK of the previously equipped monster remain 0 indefinitely, and will it be unable to change its battle position indefinitely?
A: The effect of Rocket Hand will make the equipped monster’s ATK 0 and make it unable to change its battle position as long as that monster remains face-up on the field. Note that even if your opponent takes control of that monster with Mind Control, your opponent also will not be able to change its battle position.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17067&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: A monster equipped with Rocket Hand is also affected by Forbidden Lance. In this scenario, can the effect of Rocket Hand that destroys 1 face-up card on the field be activated?
A: Even in this scenario, you can activate the effect of the equipped Rocket Hand. The part of the effect that destroys a face-up card on the field is applied normally, but because the equipped monster is unaffected by Trap effects, its ATK does not become 0 and it is still able to change its battle position. (In that case, the effect is not considered to have finished resolving when it destroyed the targeted card.)
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17068&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: A monster equipped with Rocket Hand has its ATK become 0 by the effect of Ghosts From the Past. In this scenario, can the effect of Rocket Hand that destroys 1 face-up card on the field be activated?

Q: Rocket Hand is equipped to a Machine King on my side of the field. If I activate the effect of Rocket Hand that destroys 1 face-up card on the field, but Compulsory Evacuation Device is chained, so that Machine King is no longer on the field, how does the effect of Rocket Hand resolve?
A: Even in that case, the part of the effect that destroys a face-up card on the field is applied normally. Since the monster that was equipped with Rocket Hand is no longer on the field, the part of the effect that changes its ATK to 0 and makes it unable to change its battle position does not apply. (The effect will finish resolving when the targeted card is destroyed.)

Q: Rocket Hand is equipped to a Battle Footballer on my side of the field. If I activate the effect of Rocket Hand that destroys 1 face-up card on the field, but Book of Moon is chained, so that Battle Footballer is changed to face-down Defense Position, how does the effect of Rocket Hand resolve?
A: Even in that case, the part of the effect that destroys a face-up card on the field is applied normally. Since the monster that was equipped with Rocket Hand is no longer face-up on the field, the part of the effect that changes its ATK to 0 and makes it unable to change its battle position does not apply.

Q: In a situation in which I would not take any battle damage, such as if I activated Waboku, or an opponent’s monster with lower ATK attacks my monster, can I still activate the effect of Stegocyber in my Graveyard?
A: As long as you are in damage calculation of your opponent’s Battle Phase, even if you would not take any battle damage, you can activate the effect of Stegocyber in your Graveyard.
http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=17075&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: Stegocyber was Special Summoned by its own effect, and then during Main Phase 2 it is changed to face-down Defense Position by Book of Moon. Then, if it is destroyed by Dark Hole, will it be banished by its own effect?
A: If Stegocyber was Special Summoned by its own effect, and then changed to face-down Defense Postion, the part of its effect that banishes it when it leaves the field stops applying. Therefore, in this scenario, when Stegocyber is destroyed by Dark Hole, it is sent to the Graveyard instead of being banished.

Q: If I activated Hidden Armory this turn, can I activate Card Advance?
A: Even if you activated Hidden Armory, so that you cannot Normal Summon/Set a monster this turn, you can still activate Card Advance. In that case, apply the effect that allows you to look at and rearrange the top 1-5 cards of your Deck, but you cannot apply the effect that allows you to perform an additional Tribute Summon this turn.

Q: Heavy Knight of the Flame was Special Summoned from the Graveyard with Monster Reborn. Then, if Heavy Knight of the Flame is Normal Summoned again as an Effect Monster while on the field, can it be equipped with Bashing Shield?
A: Bashing Shield is an Equip Spell Card that can only be equipped to a monster that was Normal Summoned, or Normal Set and then flipped face-up. If a Gemini monster is Normal Summoned again while it is on the field, even if that monster was first Special Summoned, it can be equipped with Bashing Shield.

Q: A Marauding Captain equipped with Bashing Shield is face-up on my side of the field, whereas Photon Crusher is face-up on my opponent’s side of the field. If my opponent’s Photon Crusher attacks my Marauding Captain, and then Forbidden Lance is activated so that Marauding Captain becomes unaffected by Spell effects, will the effects of Bashing Shield apply?
A: In this scenario, while Marauding Captain (ATK 1200) is equipped with Bashing Shield, its ATK is 2200. If the effect of Forbidden Lance is then applied, the equipped monster is no longer affected by the effect that increases its ATK by 1000, and also loses an additional 800 ATK, so damage calculation will be performed with Marauding Captain having 400 ATK. The difference between its ATK and the ATK of Photon Crusher (ATK 2000) is 1600, but the second effect of Bashing Shield still applies, so you take no battle damage.

Q: If a monster equipped with Bashing Shield battles, and Forbidden Scripture is activated during damage calculation, what happens to the battle damage?

Q: If I activate Unbreakable Spirit, but Compulsory Evacuation Device is chained so that there are no monsters on my opponent’s side of the field when Unbreakable Spirit resolves, or the monster with the lowest ATK is one with 0 ATK, does the effect apply?
A: The effect of Unbreakable Spirit increases the targeted monster’s ATK by the ATK of the opponent’s monster with the lowest ATK present when the effect resolves.
