Dark Synchro Monster


Dark Synchro Monsters (Japanese: ダークシンクロモンスター Dāku Shinkuro Monsutā) are a type of Monster Card exclusive to the anime, manga, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Tag Force video games. They are a counterpart to Synchro Monsters, having Negative Levels (in the anime and video games) that are represented by blue orbs with purple stars, or are Level 0 (in the manga). Dark Synchro Monsters are still considered to be Synchro Monsters for the purposes of card effects which mention Synchro Monsters in their text. The color of their card frame is dark grey. These cards are placed in the Extra Deck.

Dark Synchro Monsters are Dark Synchro Summoned by sending 1 Dark Tuner monster and 1 non-Tuner monster to the Graveyard. The non-Tuner monster's Level minus the Dark Tuner monster's Level must be equal to the Dark Synchro Monster's Level.

In the anime, their negative Level stars are left-aligned (like the Ranks of an Xyz Monster), contrasting to the right-aligned positive Levels, while their dark gray card frame contrasts with the white card frame of regular Synchro Monsters.

Dark Synchro Monster is not an official term in the TCG/OCG; the TCG/OCG counterparts to the anime/manga Dark Synchro Monsters are regular Synchro Monsters.
