Contact Fusion

Contact Fusion (コンタクトゆうごう Kontakuto Yūgō) is a semi-official term which means to Special Summon a Fusion Monster using its own Summoning procedure, instead of being Fusion Summoned or Special Summoned by another card's effect.

Contact Fusion is not an official term in the TCG/OCG. However, it has appeared in the anime, some official Konami sources,[1] and the flavor text of "Elemental HERO Neos".

Mechanics

Contact Fusion is a built-in Special Summon of a Fusion Monster by that monster's own Summoning procedure, so it is a proper Special Summon and does not start a Chain.

The monsters involved in the Contact Fusion are usually listed as Fusion Materials on the Fusion Monster. However, rarely, the monsters used in a Contact Fusion are fully distinct from the monsters listed as Fusion Materials, and are instead described in the Summoning conditions itself; in all such cases, these Fusion Monsters will also have the condition that they can also be Fusion Summoned.

As Contact Fusion is not a Fusion Summon, the materials cannot be replaced by Fusion Substitute Monsters. However, they are still used as Fusion Materials[citation needed], so cards that cannot be used as a Fusion Material still cannot be used as Fusion Material for a Contact Fusion.

The location that the Fusion Materials are used from and how they are used are both specified in the card text defining the Special Summon procedure. Fusion Materials for a Contact Fusion are often used from the field or Graveyard; and are often used by being banished, returned to the Deck, sent to the Graveyard, or Tributed for the Contact Fusion.

If a face-down monster is being used as a material for a Contact Fusion that returns it to the Deck, the player conducting the Summon must show that monster before shuffling it into the Deck to allow the opponent to verify the card's identity. This is unnecessary for Contact Fusions conducted via banishing, sending to the Graveyard, or Tributing, as their Fusion Materials can be publicly verified afterwards.

In older card texts, monsters that can be Summoned by Contact Fusion contain the phrase "(You do not use "Polymerization".)" in their card text to make them recognizable.[1] This text is no longer used, starting from Legendary Duelists: Rage of Ra (September 2020) in the TCG and Duelist Pack: Duelists of Gloom (May 2020) in the OCG.

Appearances

Yu-Gi-Oh! manga

Contact Fusion first appeared in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, where Magnet monsters could be combined together without the use of "Polymerization" to form a new monster. This Summoning method was generally called "Fusion Combination" (ゆうごうがったい Yūgō Gattai) by characters.[citation needed]

Two sets of Magnet monsters were seen in the manga: The XYZ monsters ("X-Head Cannon", "Y-Dragon Head" and "Z-Metal Tank") which combined into "XY-Dragon Cannon" and "XYZ-Dragon Cannon"; and the "Magnet Warrior" monsters ("Alpha", "Beta" and "Gamma") which combined into "Valkyrion the Magna Warrior".

Unlike a Fusion Summon with "Polymerization", monsters Summoned by Fusion Combination could attack in the same turn they were Summoned.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX

The common term Contact Fusion originated from the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime, where it was used to refer to the Summoning procedures of "Neos" Fusion Monsters, which are Summoned by shuffling their Fusion Materials from the field into the Deck.

Despite the use of the term "Contact Fusion", the Summoning methods of Fusion Monsters other than "Neos" monsters Summoned by their Summoning conditions continued to be referred as Fusion Combination.[citation needed]

Contact Fusions involving "Elemental HERO Neos" and 2 or more "Neo-Spacian" monsters were referred to by special names:

  • Triple Contact Fusion (トリプルコンタクトゆうごう Toripuru Kontakuto Yūgō) is a Contact Fusion involving 3 Fusion Materials. Monsters such as "Elemental HERO Chaos Neos" were Summoned this way.
  • Quadruple Contact Fusion (クアドラプルコンタクトゆうごう Kuadorapuru Kontakuto Yūgō) is a Contact Fusion involving 4 Fusion Materials. "Elemental HERO Cosmo Neos" is the only monster that can be Summoned this way. This term was never used in the anime (as "Cosmo Neos" did not appear in the anime), but is used in Jaden/Yubel's voicelines in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.
  • Ultimate Contact Fusion (きゅうきょくコンタクトゆうごう Kyūkyoku Kontakuto Yūgō) is a Contact Fusion involving 7 Fusion Materials. "Elemental HERO Divine Neos" was the only monster Summoned in this way in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime, by fusing "Elemental HERO Neos" with all the 6 "Neo-Spacian" monsters. However, in the TCG/OCG, "Elemental HERO Divine Neos" must be Fusion Summoned (with a total of 5 materials) instead.

Trivia

  • In the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime, instances of Contact Fusion were incorrectly referred to as Fusion Summons, even though they are technically not Fusion Summoning.
  • Contact Fusion can be considered a precursor to Synchro Summon, as it only requires the proper monsters on the field and the appropriate monster in the Extra Deck, without the need of a Spell Card (as used in most Ritual Summons and Fusion Summons).
