Q: I Special Summoned a Radian, the Multidimensional Kaiju from my hand to my opponent’s field with its own effect. In this scenario, I activate the first effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that places a Predator Counter on a face-up monster on my opponent’s field, targeting Radian, the Multidimensional Kaiju. If Remove Brainwashing is chained, and control of Radian, the Multidimensional Kaiju returns to me, how does the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia resolve?
A: Even in this scenario, the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia will place 1 Predator Counter on the targeted monster as usual. (The Predator Counter is placed on Radian, the Multidimensional Kaiju, and it becomes Level 1.)

Q: A Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon without any Predator Counters on it is face-up on the opponent’s field. In this situation, if my opponent activates the effect of Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon, but I chain the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia and place a Predator Counter on Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon, what happens?
A: In this scenario, since a Predator Counter was placed on Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon by the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia, the effect of Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon will be negated by the second effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia.

Q: A Mystic Tomato with a Predator Counter on it is face-up on the opponent’s field. In this situation, if the effect of Mystic Tomato is activated when it is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, will the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that negates the activated effects of monsters with Predator Counters on them apply?
A: As in this scenario, when Mystic Tomato is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, all Predator Counters on it are removed. The Mystic Tomato in your Graveyard will not have any Predator Counters on it when resolving its effect, so the effect will not be negated by Predaplant Dragostapelia.

Q: An Archfiend Eccentrick with a Predator Counter on it is face-up on the opponent’s field. In this situation, if my opponent activates the monster effect of Archfiend Eccentrick by Tributing it, will the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that negates the activated effects of monsters with Predator Counters on them apply?
A: As in this scenario, when Archfiend Eccentrick is Tributed to activate its effect, all Predator Counters on it are removed. The Tributed Archfiend Eccentrick will not have Predator Counters on it when resolving its effect, so the effect will not be negated by Predaplant Dragostapelia.

Q: A Darklord Zerato with a Predator Counter on it is face-up on the opponent’s field. In this situation, if my opponent activates the effect of Darklord Zerato that destroys monsters on the field, but Book of Moon is chained and changes it to face-down Defense Position, will the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that negates the activated effects of monsters with Predator Counters on them apply?
A: As in this scenario, if a Darklord Zerato with a Predator Counter on it is changed to face-down Defense Position by Book of Moon, all Predator Counters on it are removed. The Darklord Zerato that was changed to face-down Defense Position will not have Predator Counters on it when resolving its effect, so the effect will not be negated by Predaplant Dragostapelia.

Q: A Darklord Zerato with a Predator Counter on it is face-up on the opponent’s field. In this situation, if my opponent activates the effect of Darklord Zerato that destroys monsters on the field, but Book of Moon is chained and changes my face-up Predaplant Dragostapelia to face-down Defense Position, will the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that negates the activated effects of monsters with Predator Counters on them apply?
A: The effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that negates monster effects is a Continuous Effect. As in this scenario, if Predaplant Dragostapelia is in face-down Defense Position when resolving the effect of a Darklord Zerato that has a Predator Counter on it, that effect is not negated. (In this case, the effect of your opponent’s Darklord Zerato destroys your face-down Defense Position Predaplant Dragostapelia.)

Q: The Phantom Knights of Break Sword with a Predator Counter on it is face-up on the opponent’s field. In this situation, if my opponent activates the effect of The Phantom Knights of Break Sword that destroys 2 cards on the field, but I chain Call of the Haunted and Special Summon a Predaplant Dragostapelia from my Graveyard, will the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that negates the activated effects of monsters with Predator Counters on them apply?
A: The effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that negates monster effects is a Continuous Effect. As in this scenario, if Predaplant Dragostapelia is face-up in the Monster Zone when resolving the effect of The Phantom Knights of Break Sword that has a Predator Counter on it, that effect is negated. (In this scenario, neither of the 2 cards targeted with the effect of The Phantom Knights of Break Sword are destroyed.)

Q: A Hi-Speedroid Kendama with a Predator Counter on it is face-up on the opponent’s field. In this situation, if my opponent activates the effect of Hi-Speedroid Kendama that inflicts 500 damage, but Enemy Controller is chained and control of Predaplant Dragostapelia is switched to my opponent, will the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia that negates the activated effects of monsters with Predator Counters on them apply?
A: As in this scenario, if control of your Predaplant Dragostapelia is changed to your opponent, its effect is applied by its current controller. In this case, your opponent (the player controlling Hi-Speedroid Kendama) is not “the opponent” as described by the effect of Predaplant Dragostapelia, so the effect is not negated.

Q: My Luster Dragon is controlled by my opponent due to the effect of their Mind Control, and my Luster Dragon #2 is controlled by my opponent due to the effect of their Falling Down. In this situation, the effect of Remove Brainwashing is applied, and both monsters have returned to my control. Afterward, if Remove Brainwashing is destroyed by the effect of my opponent’s Harpie’s Feather Duster, what happens to each monster?
A: In this scenario, even after Remove Brainwashing is destroyed, control of your Luster Dragon does not return to your opponent. Furthermore, after Remove Brainwashing is destroyed, the effect of Falling Down is applied again and control of your Luster Dragon #2 returns to your opponent.

Q: Dark Simorgh and Fairy Tail – Sleeper are both face-up on my field. In this situation, if my opponent activates a Normal Spell/Trap Card, can I activate the effect of Fairy Tail – Sleeper that changes the activated card’s effect to “Change 1 face-up monster your opponent controls to face-down Defense Position”?
A: In this scenario, since the effect of your Dark Simorgh prevents your opponent from Setting cards, you cannot activate the effect of your Fairy Tail – Sleeper.

Q: Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is face-up on my field, and its effect that negates any effect activated by a monster with 0 ATK is applying. In this situation, my opponent activates the effect of their D Cubed that Special Summons more copies of D Cubed, and then further chains Rush Recklessly to increase the ATK of D Cubed to 700. In this case, will the effect of D Cubed be negated?
A: While the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is applying, the any effect activated by a monster with 0 ATK is negated. In this scenario, although Rush Recklessly was chained to the effect of D Cubed so that its ATK was increased to 700, the effect was activated while its ATK was 0, so it will be negated by the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.

Q: Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is face-up on my field, and its effect that negates any effect activated by a monster with 0 ATK is applying. In this situation, if my opponent’s Timaeus the Knight of Destiny is destroyed by battle, will its effect that Special Summons 3 “Legendary Knight” monsters be negated?
A: While the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is applying, the any effect activated by a monster with 0 ATK is negated. In this scenario, Timaeus the Knight of Destiny has “?” ATK when its effect activates in the Graveyard, and it is not considered a monster with 0 ATK. Thus, its effect is not negated by that of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, and your opponent Special Summons 3 “Legendary Knight” monsters normally.

Q: When my opponent activates Fiendish Chain, targeting my Merkabah the Eidolon Beast, I chain the effect of Merkabah the Eidolon Beast that negates the activation of my opponent’s card and banishes it. If my opponent further chains Imperial Iron Wall, how do the effects resolve?
A: If Imperial Iron Wall is chained to the effect of Merkabah the Eidolon Beast, the effect of Imperial Iron Wall will prevent any cards from being banished. In this scenario, the activation of your opponent’s card is negated as usual, but the Fiendish Chain whose activation was negated cannot be banished, and it is sent to the Graveyard. Note that while the effect of Imperial Iron Wall is already applying, the effect of Merkabah the Eidolon Beast cannot be negated.

Q: A face-up Attack Position Tune Magician with a Predator Counter on it is on my opponent’s field. Can I perform a Fusion Summon using the effect of my Predaplant Sundew Kingii, using it and my opponent’s Tune Magician as Fusion Materials?
A: When using Tune Magician as Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Material for a Summon, all other materials must be “Magician” Pendulum Monsters. Furthermore, when performing a Fusion Summon using the effect of Predaplant Sundew Kingii, it must include itself as a Fusion Material. Therefore, when performing the Fusion Summon, you cannot use your opponent’s Tune Magician with a Predator Counter on it.

Q: When resolving the effect of my Polymerization, I also apply the effect of Chain Material so that I can banish monsters from my field, hand, Deck, and/or Graveyard as Fusion Materials. In this case, can I use a Tune Magician in my hand, Deck, or Graveyard as a Fusion Material monster?
A: When using Tune Magician as Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Material for a Summon, all other materials must be “Magician” Pendulum Monsters. This is not considered a monster effect, and even if you use a Tune Magician in your hand, Deck, or Graveyard as Fusion Material with the effect of Chain Material, all other monsters used as Fusion Materials must still be “Magician” Pendulum Monsters.

Q: I Pendulum Summon a Tune Magician from my hand, and activate its effect to Special Summon a Nobledragon Magician from my Deck in Defense Position. Afterward, if Nobledragon Magician is used as a Synchro Material monster, what happens to it?

Q: I activate the second effect of The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws in my Graveyard, targeting The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots in my Graveyard. Afterward, if the Special Summoned The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots leaves the field, such as by being destroyed by battle or card effects, what happens to the Level of The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws?
A: When The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws is Special Summoned by its own effect, its original Level is determined by the Level of the other targeted “The Phantom Knights” monster. In this scenario, The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots was targeted, so The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws was Special Summoned as a Level 3 monster. Even if The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots leaves the field, The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws is still treated as a Level 3 monster.

Q: The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws and The Phantom Knights of Fragile Armor are Special Summoned together by the second effect of The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws, and the former is treated as a monster. Afterward, if The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws is changed to face-down Defense Position by the effect of Book of Moon, can it be Tributed to activate the effect of Dark Strike Fighter?
A: When The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws is Special Summoned by its own effect, its original Level is determined by the Level of the other targeted “The Phantom Knights” monster. In this scenario, The Phantom Knights of Fragile Armor was targeted, so The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws was Special Summoned as a Level 4 monster. Even if The Phantom Knights of Mist Claws is then changed to face-down Defense Position, it is still treated as a Level 4 monster, so it can be Tributed to activate the effect of Dark Strike Fighter. (Your opponent will take 800 damage.)

Q: Speedroid Den-Den Daiko Duke is the only monster on my field. In this situation, can I activate 2 copies of Speedrift in the same Chain?
A: Speedrift can only be activated if the only monster on your field is a single Tuner monster, but its effect is applied normally even if another monster is on your field when it resolves, or if that Tuner monster is no longer on your field when it resolves. In this scenario, both copies of Speedrift can be activated in the same Chain, and their effects are applied normally.

A: You can activate Predator Blast targeting Level 1 monsters or Xyz Monsters on your opponent’s field. Even then, a Predator Counter is placed on each of those monsters normally. (In that case, since they are not Level 2 or higher monsters, the part of the effect that makes them Level 1 while they have the Predator Counter on them is not applied.)

Q: Macro Cosmos is face-up on my opponent’s field, and its effect that banishes any card that would be sent to the Graveyard is applying. In this situation, can I activate Ostinato?
A: Ostinato can be activated even while the effect of Macro Cosmos is applying. In that case, the 2 “Melodious” monsters sent from your hand and/or Deck as Fusion Materials are banished due to the effect of Macro Cosmos, but you still Fusion Summon a monster from your Extra Deck normally. Since the Fusion Material monsters are banished, it is impossible to Special Summon them during the End Phase with the effect of Ostinato, but the Special Summoned Fusion Monster will still be destroyed.

Q: I activate the first effect of Lunalight Kaleido Chick by sending a Lunalight Cat Dancer from my Extra Deck to the Graveyard. If Book of Moon is chained, and Lunalight Kaleido Chick is changed to face-down Defense Position, how does its effect resolve?

A: If Skill Drain is activated after the effect of Lunalight Kaleido Chick resolved, even though the effects of Lunalight Kaleido Chick are negated, that effect will still apply. (In this scenario, Lunalight Kaleido Chick can still be treated as a Lunalight Panther Dancer when being used as Fusion Material this turn.)

Afterward, if Skill Drain is activated and the effects of Lyrical Luscinia – Recite Starling are negated, what happens to its ATK and DEF?
A: In this scenario, after the effect of Lyrical Luscinia – Recite Starling is applied, its own ATK and DEF is increased. Afterward, even if Skill Drain is activated and the effects of Lyrical Luscinia – Recite Starling are negated, the increase to its ATK and DEF remains. (In this scenario, the ATK and DEF of Lyrical Luscinia – Recite Starling each remain at 600.)

Q: I activate the effect of Yosenju’s Divine Mountain Wind that places Yosenju Shinchu L and Yosenju Shinchu R in my Pendulum Zones. If I chain Draco Face-Off, what happens?
A: The effect of Yosenju’s Divine Mountain Wind can only place Yosenju Shinchu L and Yosenju Shinchu R in your Pendulum Zones if both of your Pendulum Zones are empty. Therefore, when resolving the effect of your chained Draco Face-Off in this scenario, if you choose to place the Pendulum Monster randomly chosen by your opponent in one of your Pendulum Zones, the effect of Yosenju’s Divine Mountain Wind cannot place Yosenju Shinchu L and Yosenju Shinchu R in your Pendulum Zones.

Number VI of The Organization, Redshift is a firm believer that the toilet paper should be pulled outward from the top of the roll, not the bottom.
