[OCG] Raging Tempest Rulings

The Ruling Tempest.

Now sorted by set number. If there’s a card missing, it means no Q & As were posted during the initial update.

RATE-JP001 Dragoncalling Magician

Q: I activate the effect of Dragoncalling Magician that treats it as a Dragon-Type monster until the end of this turn. If Skill Drain is then activated, and the effects of Dragoncalling Magician are negated, what happens to its Type?
A: If Dragoncalling Magician is treated as a Dragon-Type monster by its own effect, and then its effects are negated by Skill Drain, it becomes its original Spellcaster-Type.

Q: 2 copies of Dragoncalling Magician in my Monster Zone are used as Fusion Materials to Fusion Summon a Starve Venom Fusion Dragon. In this case, how will the gained effect that makes its ATK double its original ATK during the Damage Step apply?
A: Even if 2 copies of Dragoncalling Magician are used as Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Materials for a Summon, since the ATK change due to its effect is not treated as the monster’s new original ATK, the result is no different than when only 1 copy of Dragoncalling Magician is used as Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Material. (In this scenario, the ATK of Starve Venom Fusion Dragon will be 5600 during the Damage Step when it battles a Dragon-Type monster.)

RATE-JP002 Performapal Return Tantan

Q: If I activate the Pendulum Effect of Performapal Return Tantan and return a Performapal Dag Daggerman in my Monster Zone to my hand, what happens?
A: If the Pendulum Effect of Performapal Return Tantan returns a “Performapal” Pendulum Monster to your hand, you cannot activate cards or effects with the same name for the rest of the turn. In this scenario, you can Normal or Special Summon Performapal Dag Daggerman as a monster and attack with it normally, but you cannot activate the monster effect of Performapal Dag Daggerman, not activate it in the Pendulum Zone as a Spell Card. Also, if there is already a Performapal Dag Daggerman in your other Pendulum Zone, you cannot activate its Pendulum Effect.

RATE-JP003 Performapal Dag Daggerman

Q: I Pendulum Summoned a Performapal Dag Daggerman this turn. Upon its Special Summon, my opponent activated Book of Moon and changed Performapal Dag Daggerman to face-down Defense Position. If Performapal Dag Daggerman is flipped face-up again this turn, can I activate its monster effect?
A: As in this scenario, if you successfully Pendulum Summon Performapal Dag Daggerman, but then it is changed to face-down Defense Position and then flipped face-up again, you will not be able to activate its monster effect this turn.

RATE-JP004 Performapal Laugh Maker

Q: When my Performapal Laugh Maker declares an attack on an opponent’s monster, my opponent activates Magic Cylinder. In this case, can I chain the effect of Performapal Laugh Maker that increases its ATK to my opponent’s Magic Cylinder?
A: The effect of Performapal Laugh Maker is an optional Trigger Effect that you can activate when it declares an attack. In this scenario, you will decide first whether or not to activate the effect of Performapal Laugh Maker as Chain Link 1, then your opponent can activate Magic Cylinder as Chain Link 2. Therefore, if you did not activate the effect of Performapal Laugh Maker as Chain Link 1, and your opponent activates Magic Cylinder as Chain Link 1 instead, you cannot activate the effect of Performapal Laugh Maker as Chain Link 2.

Q: When the effect of Destiny HERO – Dynamiteguy is activated during damage calculation and inflicts damage to both players, can I activate the effect of Speedroid OMKGum that Special Summons it from my hand?

Q: During the Battle Phase, my opponent activates Just Desserts as Chain Link 1 and Secret Barrel as Chain Link 2. If there are multiple copies of Speedroid OMKGum in my hand, can I activate their effects that Special Summon them?
A: The effect of Speedroid OMKGum that Special Summons it from your hand is a Trigger Effect activated when you take damage during a Battle Phase. In this scenario, after resolving the Chain with Just Desserts and Secret Barrel, you can only activate the effect of Speedroid OMKGum as Chain Link 1. (Even if there are multiple copies of Speedroid OMKGum in your hand, you cannot activate the effects of each one on the same Chain.)

Q: Speedroid OMKGum and Speedroid Bamboo Horse are used as Synchro Materials for the Synchro Summon of Hi-Speedroid Chanbara. In this case, when I activate the effect of Speedroid OMKGum that sends the top card of my Deck to the Graveyard, if my opponent chains Macro Cosmos, how does the effect resolve?
A: In this scenario, the effect of Speedroid OMKGum will resolve while the effect of Macro Cosmos is applying. In that case, when you send the top card of your Deck to the Graveyard, it will be banished instead. Even if it was a “Speedroid” monster, you cannot apply the part of the effect that increases the Synchro Monster’s ATK by 1000.

A: In this scenario, the effect of the chained Torrential Tribute will destroy Hi-Speedroid Puzzle, but the effect of Speedroid OMKGum will still send the top card of your Deck to the Graveyard.

RATE-JP007 Wind Witch – Ice Bell

Q: I activate the effect of Wind Witch – Ice Bell that Special Summons it from my hand, and Wind Witch – Ice Bell itself is Special Summoned, but I choose not to Special Summon a “Wind Witch” monster from my Deck. In this case, will the part of the effect that prevents me from Special Summoning monsters from my Extra Deck this turn, other than Level 5 or higher WIND monsters, still apply?
A: When you resolve the effect of Wind Witch – Ice Bell, even if you complete the resolution after Wind Witch – Ice Bell is Special Summoned from your hand, the part of the effect that prevents you from Special Summoning monsters from your Extra Deck is applied normally.

RATE-JP008 Wind Witch – Snow Bell

Q: 2 copies of Wind Witch – Ice Bell are the only face-up monsters on my field. In this situation, I activate the effect of Wind Witch – Snow Bell that Special Summons it from my hand. If my opponent chains Book of Moon, and one of the face-up copies of Wind Witch – Ice Bell on my field is changed to face-down Defense Position, how does the effect of Wind Witch – Snow Bell resolve?
A: As in this scenario, even if you have 2 or less WIND monsters on your field when resolving the effect of Wind Witch – Snow Bell in your hand, the effect resolves normally and Wind Witch – Snow Bell is Special Summoned.

Q: I use 2 copies of Wind Witch – Ice Bell and 1 Wind Witch – Snow Bell as Synchro Materials to Synchro Summon a Wind Witch – Winter Bell. Then, if my opponent activates Skill Drain so that the effects of Wind Witch – Winter Bell are negated, will the effect of Wind Witch – Snow Bell that prevents Wind Witch – Winter Bell from being destroyed by my opponent’s card effects still apply?
A: If Wind Witch – Snow Bell is used as a Synchro Material monster for a WIND Synchro Monster, its effect prevents that Synchro Monster (in this case, your Wind Witch – Winter Bell) from being destroyed by your opponent’s card effects. This effect is not treated as one that the Synchro Monster gains, so even if the effect of Skill Drain is applied, the effect of Wind Witch – Snow Bell continues to apply. (That Synchro Monster still cannot be destroyed by your opponent’s card effects.)

Q: I use 2 copies of Wind Witch – Ice Bell and 1 Wind Witch – Snow Bell as Synchro Materials to Synchro Summon a Wind Witch – Winter Bell. Then, if my opponent activates Creature Swap and takes control of my Wind Witch – Winter Bell, will the effect of Wind Witch – Snow Bell that prevents Wind Witch – Winter Bell from being destroyed by my opponent’s card effects still apply?
A: If Wind Witch – Snow Bell is used as a Synchro Material monster for a WIND Synchro Monster, its effect prevents that Synchro Monster (in this case, your Wind Witch – Winter Bell) from being destroyed by your opponent’s card effects. Your opponent in this case refers to the opponent of the player who performed the Synchro Summon. Even if control of that Synchro Monster is switched to the opponent, Wind Witch – Winter Bell will not be destroyed by the effects of the opponent as viewed by the player who performed the Synchro Summon.

Q: I use my Hi-Speedroid Kendama and a Wind Witch – Snow Bell that my opponent owns as Synchro Materials to Synchro Summon a Clear Wing Synchro Dragon. In this case, will the effect of Wind Witch – Snow Bell that prevents Clear Wing Synchro Dragon from being destroyed by my opponent’s card effects still apply?
A: As in this scenario, if your opponent is the owner of the Wind Witch – Snow Bell that you used to Synchro Summon a WIND Synchro Monster, its effect prevents that Synchro Monster (in this case, your Clear Wing Synchro Dragon) from being destroyed by your opponent’s card effects. Your opponent in this case refers to the opponent of the player who performed the Synchro Summon. (In this scenario, Clear Wing Synchro Dragon is not destroyed by the card effects of the owner of Wind Witch – Snow Bell.)

RATE-JP009 Parasite Fusioner

Q: Can I only use Parasite Fusioner as a Fusion Material monster when resolving its second effect that performs a Fusion Summon?
A: Parasite Fusioner cannot be used as a Fusion Material monster unless its first effect is applied, which allows it to be substituted for 1 monster whose name is listed as a Fusion Material for a Fusion Monster. The effect of Parasite Fusioner that substitutes it for a Fusion Material can be applied not only when performing a Fusion Summon by its own effect, but also with other cards such as Polymerization.

Q: Can Parasite Fusioner be used as Fusion Material to Fusion Summon a Starve Venom Fusion Dragon?
A: Starve Venom Fusion Dragon requires any 2 DARK monsters on the field other than Tokens as Fusion Materials. Parasite Fusioner cannot be used as a Fusion Material monster unless its first effect is applied, which allows it to be substituted for 1 monster whose name is listed as a Fusion Material for a Fusion Monster. Therefore, Parasite Fusioner cannot be used as Fusion Material for the Fusion Summon of Starve Venom Fusion Dragon.

A: Parasite Fusioner cannot be used as a Fusion Material monster unless its first effect is applied, which allows it to be substituted for 1 monster whose name is listed as a Fusion Material for a Fusion Monster. In this scenario, if you are using Fusion Materials in your Deck when resolving the effect of Shaddoll Fusion, you cannot apply the effect of Parasite Fusioner, so Parasite Fusioner cannot be used.

Q: DNA Surgery is face-up on the field, and its effect makes all monsters on the field Machine-Type. If I have Cyber Dragon and Parasite Fusioner face-up on my field, can I Special Summon Chimeratech Fortress Dragon from my Extra Deck by its own procedure?
A: The effect of allows it to be substituted for 1 monster whose name is listed as a Fusion Material for a Fusion Monster’s Fusion Summon. Special Summoning a Chimeratech Fortress Dragon by its own procedure is not treated as a Fusion Summon. In this scenario, even if Parasite Fusioner is treated as a Machine-Type monster by the effect of DNA Surgery, since you cannot apply its effect that substitutes it for a Fusion Material, it cannot be sent to the Graveyard to Special Summon Chimeratech Fortress Dragon.

In this scenario, if Parasite Fusioner is face-up in your Monster Zone, since its effects are negated, you will not be able to apply its first effect and cannot use it as a Fusion Material monster. Furthermore, if Parasite Fusioner is in face-down Defense Position, its effects are not negated by Skill Drain, but the effect that substitutes it for a Fusion Material can still be applied. (Parasite Fusioner can still be used as a Fusion Material monster.)

Q: While there are no Ritual Spell Cards in my Graveyard, I activate Machine Angel Ritual. By the effect of Machine Angel Ritual, Cyber Tutubon is Tributed to Ritual Summon Cyber Angel Nasatya. In this case, can I activate the effect of Cyber Tutubon that adds a Ritual Spell Card in my Graveyard to my hand?
A: In this scenario, when Machine Angel Ritual resolves, Cyber Tutubon is Tributed for the Ritual Summon, and then Machine Angel Ritual is sent to the Graveyard.

Q: A face-up Zodiac Beast Wildbow on my field only has Zodiac Beast Marmorat as an Xyz Material. In this situation, can I activate the effect gained from Zodiac Beast Marmorat that Special Summons another copy from my hand or Deck, by detaching that Zodiac Beast Marmorat?
A: In this scenario, if an Xyz Monster has gained the effect from Zodiac Beast Marmorat attached as Xyz Material, that effect can be activated by detaching Zodiac Beast Marmorat itself. In that case, the effect resolves normally and another Zodiac Beast Marmorat is Special Summoned from your hand or Deck.

RATE-JP021 Crystron Sulfafnir

Q: If there are no cards on my field, can I activate the effect of a Crystron Sulfafnir in my hand or Graveyard that Special Summons it, then destroys 1 card on my field?
A: Even if you have no cards on your field, you can activate the effect of Crystron Sulfafnir that Special Summons it from your hand or Graveyard. In that case, after Crystron Sulfafnir is Special Summoned in Defense Position, it will be the only card on your field, so you must destroy Crystron Sulfafnir itself. (Note that since Crystron Sulfafnir is destroyed by its own effect, you can activate its effect that Special Summons a “Crystron” monster from your Deck.)

Q: If I activate the effect of a Crystron Sulfafnir in my hand or Graveyard that Special Summons it, then destroys 1 card on my field, can my opponent chain the effect of Stardust Dragon?
A: In this scenario, if the player activating the effect of Crystron Sulfafnir has at least 1 card on their field, their opponent can chain the effect of Stardust Dragon. Note that if the player activating the effect of Crystron Sulfafnir has no cards on their field, the effect is not treated as one that would destroy a card on the field, so their opponent cannot chain the effect of Stardust Dragon.

RATE-JP022 Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu

Q: If a face-down Defense Position Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu on my field is attacked by an opponent’s monster, can I activate its effect that increases its ATK and DEF during this Battle Phase?
A: If a face-down Defense Position Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu on your field is attacked by an opponent’s monster, you cannot activate its effect at the start of the Damage Step. However, before damage calculation, after Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu is flipped face-up, you can activate its effect.

A: As in this scenario, even if the effect of Macro Cosmos is applying, you can activate the effect of Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu by discarding a Spirit monster. In that case, although the discarded Spirit monster is banished instead of sent to the Graveyard, the ATK and DEF of Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu is increased normally.

However, when you activate this effect, you can discard Otohime which has 0 ATK and 100 DEF.

Q: I activated the effect of Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu during the Damage Step that increases its ATK and DEF, by discarding Amaterasu, and its ATK and DEF increased by 3000. Afterward, if Forbidden Chalice is activated and the effects of Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu are negated, what happens to its ATK and DEF?
A: After the ATK and DEF of Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu are increased by its own effect, if its effects are negated by Forbidden Chalice, it no longer gains the ATK and DEF from its effect. In this case, since Forbidden Chalice also increases its ATK by 400, Espirit Bird Shinobigarasu will have 400 ATK and 0 DEF.

A: When activating the effect of Espirit Bird Tsutaehato, you can target a monster treated as a Spirit monster by the effect of Kawanokami, and the effect will be applied normally. (In this scenario, you can target All-Devouring Glutton even though it is not originally a Spirit monster.)

Q: During the Battle Phase, can I activate the effects of 2 copies of Envoy of Chaos by targeting the same face-up Attack Position Gaia the Fierce Knight on my field?
A: You can activate the effects of 2 copies of Envoy of Chaos during the same Battle Phase by targeting the same monster. In this scenario, the effect of each copy increases the ATK of Gaia the Fierce Knight by 1500, so it has 5300 ATK. Also, when that Gaia the Fierce Knight battles an opponent’s monster, even though the effects of each Envoy of Chaos are applied, the opponent’s monster’s ATK still becomes equal to its original ATK during damage calculation. (This effect does not change even if the effects of multiple copies are applied.)

Q: During the Battle Phase, I activate the effect of Envoy of Chaos by targeting a face-up Attack Position Black Luster Soldier on my field. If my Black Luster Soldier battles my opponent’s face-up Attack Position Paleozoic Anomalocaris equipped with Axe of Despair, what happens?
A: In this scenario, the effect of Envoy of Chaos increases the ATK of Black Luster Solider by 1500 until the end of this turn, so its ATK is 4500. In addition, the effect that makes the ATK of the opponent’s monsters that it battles become equal to their original ATK is an effect that is applied to the opponent’s monsters, and since Paleozoic Anomalocaris is unaffected by other monsters’ effects, it will have 3400 ATK during this battle while it is equipped with Axe of Despair.

Q: When Special Summoning a Ritual Beast Ulti-Apelio from my Extra Deck by its own procedure, can I banish 2 copies of Spiritual Beast Tamer Winda on my field?
A: Spiritual Beast Tamer Winda is both a “Ritual Beast Tamer” monster and a “Spiritual Beast” monster. Therefore, since Ritual Beast Ulti-Apelio requires 1 “Ritual Beast Tamer” monster and 1 “Spiritual Beast” monster as Fusion Materials for its Special Summon, you can use 2 copies of Spiritual Beast Tamer Winda.

Q: When Special Summoning a Tierra, Goddess of Rebirth by returning 10 other cards with different names from my hand or field to the Deck, can I return a Harpie Harpist on my field and a Harpie Harpist in my hand to the Deck?
A: In this scenario, the name of the Harpie Harpist on the field is treated as Harpie Lady by its own effect. Also, since the Harpie Harpist in your hand is not treated as Harpie Lady, each Harpie Harpist is considered to have a different name. Therefore, when you Special Summon a Tierra, Goddess of Rebirth with its own procedure, you can include both the Harpie Harpist on your field and the one in your hand among the 10 cards that you must return to the Deck.

A: A face-up Odd-Eyes Raging Dragon in your Extra Deck is a Pendulum Monster, but is also an Xyz Monster as well, so any effects that return it to the Deck will return it to the Extra Deck instead. In this case, the effect of Tierra, Goddess of Rebirth cannot return Odd-Eyes Raging Dragon to a Deck, so it remains face-up in the Extra Deck. Note that any copies of Odd-Eyes Raging Dragon on the field or Graveyard will be returned face-down to the Extra Deck by the effect of Tierra, Goddess of Rebirth.

A: If a face-up monster treated as a Spirit monster by the effect of Kawanokami is changed to face-down Defense Position, the effects of Kawanokami are no longer applied.

A: The effect that prevents All-Devouring Glutton from being Tributed or used as Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Material is a Continuous Effect.

Therefore, you cannot Tribute a face-up All-Devouring Glutton on your opponent’s field to Special Summon Dogoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju.

A: The effect of All-Devouring Glutton activates at the start of the Damage Step, so if All-Devouring Glutton attacks an opponent’s face-down Defense Position monster and activates its effect, that monster is banished before it is flipped face-up by the attack. Therefore, in this scenario, the effect of Apprentice Piper cannot be activated.

A: While the effect of Fairy Tail – Cinderella is applying, neither player can target other monsters on the field with the effects of Spell Cards, not only when a Spell Card is activated, but also when the effect of a Spell Card that is already on the field is activated.

If my opponent chains the effect of Divine Dragon Knight Felgrand, making it unaffected by the effects of other cards during this turn, how does the effect of Cyber Angel Nasatya resolve?
A: As in this scenario, even if the monster targeted by the effect of Cyber Angel Nasatya is unaffected by card effects, Cyber Angel Nasatya is still Special Summoned from the Graveyard normally, but you do not take control of the targeted monster. (In this situation, Divine Dragon Knight Felgrand remains in your opponent’s Monster Zone.)

Afterward, if Cyber Angel Nasatya is destroyed by battle or card effect and is sent to the Graveyard, does my opponent regain control of Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon?
A: The effect of Cyber Angel Nasatya allows you to gain control of the opponent’s targeted monster for as long as that monster remains on the field. Therefore, as in this scenario, Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon does not return to your opponent’s side of the field if your Cyber Angel Nasatya is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard again.

Q: My opponent has 1 Set card in their Spell & Trap Zone. In this situation, when I Ritual Summon Espirit Lord Himekujaku, I activate its effect that returns up to 3 of my opponent’s Spell/Trap Cards to the Deck, then Special Summons a Level 4 or lower Spirit monster from my Deck. If my opponent chains their Set card, which is a Mystical Space Typhoon, how does the effect of Espirit Lord Himekujaku resolve?
A: When resolving the effect of Espirit Lord Himekujaku, a chained Mystical Space Typhoon cannot be returned to the Deck. In this scenario, if there are no other Spell/Trap Cards on my opponent’s field, you cannot apply the part of the effect that returns your opponent’s Spell/Trap Cards to the Deck. In that case, you also cannot Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Spirit monster from your Deck.

In this situation, when I Ritual Summon Espirit Lord Hikokujaku, I activate its effect that returns up to 3 of my opponent’s monsters to the hand, then Special Summons a Level 4 or lower Spirit monster from my hand. In this case, how does the effect resolve?
A: When resolving the effect of Espirit Lord Hikokujaku, you can choose a Token on your opponent’s field when returning up to 3 of your opponent’s monsters to the hand. In this scenario, if the Doomsday Tokens are the only monsters on your opponent’s field, the effect does not return any monsters to the hand since the Tokens disappear when they leave the field. In that case, you also cannot Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Spirit monster from your Deck.

A: If Espirit Lord Hikokujaku is equipped with Mirror of Yata, the effect of Mirror of Yata makes it so that you can choose not to activate its effect that returns it to the hand during the End Phase, in which case you can end your turn without activating the effect of Espirit Lord Hikokujaku. (If you do not activate the effect, Espirit Lord Hikokujaku does not return to your hand, and you do not Special Summon any Espirit Bird Tokens.) You can also still choose to activate the effect of Espirit Lord Hikokujaku instead of applying the effect of Mirror of Yata, in which case Espirit Lord Hikokujaku will return to your hand normally, and you will Special Summon 2 Espirit Bird Tokens.

RATE-JP039 Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon

Q: Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is face-up on my field. In this situation, I activated Ghost of a Grudge, making the ATK of my opponent’s Heavy-Armored Train Iron Wolf 0. If my opponent activates the effect of Heavy-Armored Train Iron Wolf that allows a Machine-Type monster on the field to attack directly, will that effect be negated? Also, if Heavy-Armored Train Iron Wolf is destroyed, will its effect that adds a Level 4 or lower Machine-Type monster from the Deck to the hand be negated?
A: While the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is applied, effects activated by monsters with 0 ATK are negated. In this scenario, if the effect of Heavy-Armored Train Iron Wolf on the field is activated, since its ATK is 0 due to the effect of Ghost of a Grudge, the effect is negated by Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon. However, if the second effect of Heavy-Armored Train Iron Wolf is activated when it is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, the effect of Ghost of a Grudge no longer applies, so the effect is not activated by a monster with 0 ATK. (The effect of Heavy-Armored Train Iron Wolf is not negated, and that player can add a Level 4 or lower Machine-Type monster from their Deck to their hand normally.)

A: While the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is applied, effects activated by monsters with 0 ATK are negated. In this scenario, the ATK of Blazing Meteor Black Dragon became 0 when Ghost of a Grudge was chained to it, but it did not have 0 ATK when its effect was activated, so the effect is not negated by the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.

In this case, will the effect of Wangtianhou, Origin of the Yang Zing be negated?
A: While the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is applied, effects activated by monsters with 0 ATK are negated. In this scenario, even if Book of Moon is chained to the effect of Wangtianhou, Origin of the Yang Zing and changes it to face-down Defense Position, it had 0 ATK when its effect activated, so the effect is negated by the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.

Q: Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is face-up on my field. In this situation, if my opponent activates the effect of Zodiac Beast Bullhorn that only has Zodiac Beast Rabbina attached as Xyz Material, by detaching that Zodiac Beast Rabbina, will the effect be negated?
A: In this scenario, since Zodiac Beast Bullhorn has a Zodiac Beast Rabbina attached as Xyz Material, its effect increases its ATK and DEF by the total ATK and DEF of any “Zodiac Beast” monsters attached to it, so it has 800 ATK and DEF. When your opponent activates the effect of Zodiac Beast Bullhorn that adds a Beast-Warrior-Type monster from their Deck to their hand, they do so by detaching 1 Xyz Material from Zodiac Beast Bullhorn, but Zodiac Beast Bullhorn did not have 0 ATK when the activation was declared so its effect is not negated by the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.

A: While the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is applied, effects activated by monsters with 0 ATK are negated. While Tragoedia is in the hand, its ATK is “?”, so it is not treated as a monster with 0 ATK. Therefore, the effect is not negated by the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, and Tragoedia is Special Summoned from the hand normally.

Q: Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is face-up on my field. In this situation, if my opponent activates the effect of Fullmetalfoes Alkahest that equips an Effect Monster to it, which of its effects will be negated?
A: While the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is applied, effects activated by monsters with 0 ATK are negated. The effect negates only the effects of monsters that create a Chain, so in this scenario, the Continuous Effects of Fullmetalfoes Alkahest that increase its DEF and allow you to use monsters equipped to it as Fusion Materials are not negated by the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.

Q: If my Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon attacks my opponent’s Flower Cardian Fivelights, and Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is destroyed by battle, is it possible to activate the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon that banishes the opponent’s battling monster at the end of the Damage Step?
A: Even in this scenario, since Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon attacked an opponent’s monster, but that monster was not destroyed by battle, you can activate its effect. In this case, since Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon was destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, its effect activates in the Graveyard. Although the effect of Flower Cardian Fivelights negates the effects of monsters that battle “Flower Cardian” monsters, the effect of Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon that activates in the Graveyard is not negated.

Q: Zodiac Sign is face-up in my Field Zone, and its effect prevents my opponent from targeting Beast-Warrior-Type monsters on my field for attacks except for the one(s) with the highest ATK. If my opponent has a face-up Attack Position Beast King Barbaros on their field, while I only have a face-up Zodiac Beast Rabbina on my field, can my opponent attack?
A: The effect of Zodiac Sign prevents your opponent from targeting Beast-Warrior-Type monsters on your field for attacks, except for the one(s) with the highest ATK that are on your field (you being the player controlling Zodiac Sign). As in this scenario, Beast-Warrior-Type monsters on your opponent’s field do not affect which monsters your opponent can target for attacks. Therefore, since Zodiac Beast Rabbina is the Beast-Warrior-Type monster on your field with the highest ATK, your opponent can target it for an attack.

Q: Zodiac Beast Drancia and Zodiac Beast Wildbow are face-up on my field, and Zodiac Sign is face-up in my Field Zone. In this situation, if my opponent activates Dark Hole, can I apply the third effect of Zodiac Sign and destroy 1 other monster in my hand or field instead?
A: Even if 2 or more “Zodiac Beast” monsters on your field would be destroyed at the same time by the effect of Dark Hole, you can apply the third effect of Zodiac Sign. In this scenario, since both Zodiac Beast Drancia and Zodiac Beast Wildbow would be destroyed, you must destroy 1 other monster on your field or hand that is not being destroyed by the effect of Dark Hole. (Since all monsters on the field are being destroyed in this situation, you must choose 1 monster in your hand to destroy instead.)

A: If your opponent activates Super Quantal Finisher Alphan Ball, you can Special Summon a Number C88: Gimmick Puppet Disaster Leo from your Extra Deck with its effect.

Q: During the turn that my opponent activated Scapegoat, can I activate Super Quantal Finisher Alphan Ball?

A: In this scenario, once the effect of Forbidden Lance is applied, Inzektor Dragonfly becomes unaffected by the effects of Spell Cards so it is not returned to the Deck by the effect of Super Quantal Finisher Alphan Ball. Also, Forbidden Lance is not returned to the Deck and is sent to the Graveyard after it resolves. In this case, only Inzektor Giga-Mantis is returned to the Deck, but you will still Special Summon a monster from your Extra Deck.

A: If the card revealed from the top of your Deck by the effect of Destiny HERO – Diamond Dude is Mowing the Neighbor’s Lawn, since Mowing the Neighbor’s Lawn is a Normal Spell Card, it is sent to the Graveyard normally. During the Main Phase of your next turn, you can activate the effect of Mowing the Neighbor’s Lawn from your Graveyard. However, since the effect of Mowing the Neighbor’s Lawn sends cards from the top of your Deck to the Graveyard until your Deck has the same number of cards as your opponent’s, you cannot activate the effect if your opponent has more cards in their Deck than you.

RATE-JP067 Terminal World Next

Q: An Embodiment of Apophis that was Special Summoned as a Normal Monster by its own effect is face-up in my opponent’s Monster Zone. In this scenario, in which situations am I able to activate Terminal World Next?
A: Terminal World Next can be activated only if you have no other cards on your field, and your opponent has 3 or less monsters as well as 3 or less Spell/Trap Cards on their field. Otherwise, you cannot activate it. After Embodiment of Apophis is Special Summoned as a Normal Monster by its own effect, it is still also treated as a Trap Card, so if your opponent does not have 3 or less monsters on their field including Embodiment of Apophis, and 3 or less Spell/Trap Cards on their field including Embodiment of Apophis, you cannot activate Terminal World Next.

A: The effect of Terminal World Next allows each player to only place up to 3 monsters on their field, or up to 3 Spell/Trap Cards on their field. Since Terminal World Next is counted towards the number of Spell/Trap Cards the activating player can place on the field, that player can place up to 2 other Spell/Trap Cards on their field.

Q: While the effect of Terminal World Next is applying, if I already have 2 Spell/Trap Cards on my field, can I activate Pop-Up?
A: When you activate Pop-Up, since it must be placed in one of your Spell & Trap Zones, it will become the third Spell/Trap Card on your field. If you already have 2 Spell/Trap Cards on your field, the effect of Pop-Up will also place the fourth Spell/Trap Card on your field when the Field Spell Card is activated directly from your Deck. While the effect of Terminal World Next is applying, since you cannot place more than 3 Spell/Trap Cards on your field, you cannot activate Pop-Up in this scenario.

Taking control of an opponent’s monster until the End Phase with the effect of Mind Control is NOT treated as placing a monster on the field, so that even if you already have 3 monsters on your field, you can activate Mind Control and take control of an opponent’s monster.

A: The effect of Terminal World Next allows each player to only place up to 3 monsters on their field, or up to 3 Spell/Trap Cards on their field. In this scenario, the effect of your opponent’s Ojama Trio Special Summons 3 Ojama Tokens to your side of the field, so you will not be able to place any more monsters on your field. In this case, the effect of Monster Reborn is not applied. (The targeted monster remains in the Graveyard.)

In this scenario, the effect of Terminal World Next starts applying after a monster is Special Summoned by the effect of Call of the Haunted, and the 4 monsters on your opponent’s field will remain there.

A: The effect of Terminal World Next allows each player to only place up to 3 monsters on their field, or up to 3 Spell/Trap Cards on their field. In this scenario, once the effects of Terminal World Next are negated by the effect of D/D/D Cursed King Siegfried, players are able to place more than 3 monsters and more than 3 Spell/Trap Cards on their fields normally. Then, when the effects of Terminal World Next start applying again and you have 4 or more monsters on your field, those monsters will remain intact in their Monster Zones. Since you now have 4 monsters on your field, the effect of Terminal World Next will prevent any more monsters from being placed on your field.

Q: When resolving the effect of The Beginning, can all 3 revealed Warrior-Type monsters from my Deck be “Black Luster Soldier” or “Gaia the Fierce Knight” monsters?
A: When you reveal 3 Warrior-Type monsters from your Deck with the effect of The Beginning, you can choose 3 “Black Luster Soldier” or “Gaia the Fierce Knight” monsters. In that case, your opponent still chooses 1 randomly, and that card is added to your hand while the others are sent to the Graveyard.

Q: After the effect of Shiranui Style Samsara that makes it so that I take no damage for the rest of the turn has been applied, if Shiranui Style Samsara is destroyed by the effect of my opponent’s Mystical Space Typhoon, will I take damage this turn?
A: As in this scenario, if the effect of Shiranui Style Samsara already resolved, but Shiranui Style Samsara is then destroyed by a card effect, you will still not take any damage for the rest of this turn.

Q: Can I activate the effect of Shiranui Style Samsara that returns 2 of my banished Zombie-Type monsters to my Deck, by targeting Shiranui Samuraisaga and Shiranui Shogunsaga?
A: As in this scenario, you can activate the effect of Shiranui Style Samsara by targeting 2 of your banished Zombie-Type Synchro Monsters with 0 DEF. In that case, since both Synchro Monsters return to the Extra Deck instead of the Deck, you will draw 1 card without shuffling your Main Deck.

Q: I activate the effect of Shiranui Style Samsara that returns 2 of my banished Zombie-Type monsters to my Deck, targeting Shiranui Spectralsword and Shiranui Shogunsaga. If my opponent chains Burial from a Different Dimension and returns Shiranui Shogunsaga to the Graveyard, how does the effect of Shiranui Style Samsara resolve?
A: In this scenario, if one of the targeted Zombie-Type monsters is not banished when resolving the effect of Shiranui Style Samsara due to the effect of Burial from a Different Dimension, you do not return any monsters to the Deck and you cannot draw a card. (In this case, Shiranui Spectralsword remains banished.)

RATE-JP077 Purusha Shaddoll Aeon

Q: If I do not have a “Shaddoll” card in my hand, can I activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon?
A: If you do not have a “Shaddoll” card in your hand, you cannot activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon. Note that you must send a “Shaddoll” card from your hand to the Graveyard when Purusha Shaddoll Aeon resolves, but the effect that changes the targeted monster to face-down Defense Position during the End Phase does not require you to have a “Shaddoll” card in your hand.

Q: While the effect of Macro Cosmos is applying, can I activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon?
A: Even while the effect of Macro Cosmos is applying, you can activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon. In that case, when the effect resolves, you must banish 1 “Shaddoll” card from your hand instead of sending it to the Graveyard, and the targeted monster does not gain 1000 ATK and DEF, nor is it changed to face-down Defense Position during the End Phase.

Q: While the effect of my opponent’s Dark Simorgh is preventing me from Setting cards, can I activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon?
A: Even while the effect of your opponent’s Dark Simorgh is applying, you can activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon. In that case, the effect of sending a “Shaddoll” card from your hand to the Graveyard and increasing the targeted monster’s ATK and DEF by 1000 is applied normally. Then, if the effect of Dark Simorgh is still applying during the End Phase, the targeted monster is not changed to face-down Defense Position, and its ATK and DEF will remain increased by 1000 as long as it remains face-up on the field. (Note that during the next turn, although the targeted monster will still gain 1000 ATK and DEF, the effect that changes it to face-down Defense Position will apply again during the End Phase.)

Q: I activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon by targeting a face-up El Shaddoll Wendigo on my field. If Book of Moon is chained and El Shaddoll Wendigo is changed to face-down Defense Position, or if Compulsory Evacuation Device is chained and returns it to the Extra Deck, how does Purusha Shaddoll Aeon resolve?
A: As in these scenarios, if the targeted “Shaddoll” monster is no longer face-up on the field when Purusha Shaddoll Aeon resolves, you still send a “Shaddoll” card from your hand to the Graveyard, but the targeted monster cannot gain 1000 ATK and DEF, and does not change to face-down Defense Position during the End Phase.

Q: I activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon by targeting a face-up El Shaddoll Winda on my field. If my opponent chains Forbidden Lance and makes El Shaddoll Winda unaffected by Trap effects, how does Purusha Shaddoll Aeon resolve?
A: When resolving the effect of Purusha Shaddoll Aeon, even if the targeted “Shaddoll” monster is not affected by the effects of Trap Cards, you still send a “Shaddoll” card from your hand to the Graveyard, but the targeted monster cannot gain 1000 ATK and DEF, and does not change to face-down Defense Position during the End Phase.

Q: While Shaddoll Core is the only card in my hand, I activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon. If my opponent chains Mind Crush, discarding Shaddoll Core from my hand, how does Purusha Shaddoll Aeon resolve?
A: When resolving the effect of Purusha Shaddoll Aeon, if you do not have a “Shaddoll” card in your hand, none of the effects of Purusha Shaddoll Aeon are applied.

Q: Before damage calculation, when my opponent’s Infernoid Attondel is attacking my El Shaddoll Grysta, I activate Purusha Shaddoll Aeon. When the effect resolves, I send Shaddoll Hound from my hand to the Graveyard, and El Shaddoll Grysta gains 1000 ATK and DEF. In this case, if I activate the effect of Shaddoll Hound and change the attacking Infernoid Attondel to Defense Position, how does the battle proceed?
A: As in this scenario, if you activated Purusha Shaddoll Aeon before damage calculation and sent Shaddoll Hound from your hand to the Graveyard, the effect of Shaddoll Hound can be activated normally. At this time, if the attacking Infernoid Attondel is changed to Defense Position by the effect of Shaddoll Hound, it is no longer able to attack and the Damage Step ends without damage calculation being performed. Note that even in this case, since El Shaddoll Grysta gained 1000 ATK and DEF, it is changed to face-down Defense Position during the End Phase normally.

RATE-JP079 Switch Hero

Q: If both players each control 5 monsters, can I activate Switch Hero?
A: Even in that scenario, you can activate Switch Hero. The effect of Switch Hero switches control of both players’ monsters at the same time, so that even if both players control 5 monsters, the effect is applied normally.

Q: If there is a monster on the field that is affected by Forbidden Lance, can I activate Switch Hero?
A: Even in that scenario, you can activate Switch Hero, but since the effect of Switch Hero switches control of both players’ monsters with each other, if any monster on the field is unaffected by Trap effects, the effect of Switch Hero is not applied and no monsters change control. (If Forbidden Lance is chained to Switch Hero, the result is the same.)

Q: If Mataza the Zapper is face-up on the field, can I activate Switch Hero?
A: The effect of Switch Hero switches control of both players’ monsters with each other, and since control of Mataza the Zapper cannot be changed while it is face-up on the field, Switch Hero cannot be activated if Mataza the Zapper is face-up on the field.

RATE-JP080 Megaswell

Q: If I activate 2 copies of Megaswell by targeting the same Goblin Elite Attack Force on my opponent’s field, how are their effects applied?
A: When the effect of each Megaswell resolved, the ATK and DEF of the targeted monster becomes double its current ATK and DEF. (The result is the same whether both copies of Megaswell were activated on the same Chain or separately.) In this scenario, after the effect of the first Megaswell is applied, the ATK and DEF of Goblin Elite Attack Force become 4400 and 3000 respectively. After the effect of the second copy is applied, its ATK and DEF become 8800 and 6000 respectively.

Q: If I activate Megaswell, but Book of Moon is chained so that the targeted monster is changed to face-down Defense Position, how does Megaswell resolve?
A: If the monster targeted by Megaswell is in face-down Defense Position when the effect resolves, the effect is not applied. (That monster’s ATK and DEF do not change, and it is still able to attack directly.)

Source: http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/faq_search.action?ope=5&fid=20119&keyword=&tag=-1

Q: I activated Megaswell by targeting my opponent’s Goblin Elite Attack Force. After the effect resolves, if Book of Moon is activated and Goblin Elite Attack Force is changed to face-down Defense Position, will the effects of Megaswell continue to apply?
A: After the effect of Megaswell resolves, if the affected monster is changed to face-down Defense Position, the effects are no longer applied. (That monster’s ATK and DEF return to their original values, and it will be able to attack directly.)

Q: My opponent declares a direct attack with Goblin Attack Force. During the Battle Step, if I activate Megaswell by targeting that Goblin Attack Force, what happens to the attack?
A: In this scenario, if the effect of Megaswell is applied to Goblin Attack Force, it is no longer able to attack directly and a replay occurs. (If there is a monster on your field that can be targeted for an attack, your opponent can attack that monster, but otherwise your opponent will not be able to reselect an attack target and must cancel the attack.)

Q: My opponent declares a direct attack with Goblin Attack Force. During the Damage Step, if I activate Megaswell by targeting that Goblin Attack Force, what happens to the attack?
A: In this scenario, if the effect of Megaswell is applied to Goblin Attack Force during the Damage Step, the attack continues normally, but no further direct attacks can be made by that monster. (Therefore, in this case, damage calculation is performed while Goblin Attack Force has 4600 ATK, and you take the damage.)
