Optional use of multiple Tuner monsters[edit]

Double Tuning is also possible with some Synchro Monsters that do not specify that the monsters other than the required Tuner must be non-Tuners.

"XX-Saber Gottoms" must be Synchro Summoned using a Tuner and EARTH monsters, but it does not specify that the EARTH monsters must be non-Tuners. Therefore, up to 9 Tuner monsters can be used for its Synchro Summon.

If a specifically named Synchro Material is treated as a Tuner monster, it can be used for the Synchro Summon and result in there being 2 or more Tuner monsters used. For example, if "Stardust Dragon" is treated as a Tuner monster, it can be used as a Synchro Material for the Synchro Summon of "Majestic Star Dragon" or "Shooting Star Dragon" in addition to the necessary Tuner monster. If "Red Dragon Archfiend" is treated as a Tuner monster, "Red Nova Dragon" can be Synchro Summoned using 3 Tuner monsters.

Example[edit]

In the anime[edit]

In the anime, this type of Synchro Summon was first seen in Episode 113 of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, when Jack Atlas Synchro Summoned "Red Nova Dragon".

In Episode 097 of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, an alternative Jack Atlas used Double Tuning in his Duel against Yuya Sakaki to Synchro Summon "Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend" .

Visually in both series, this Summoning is represented with the chosen Tuner monsters transforming into rings of fire in place of the usual green rings found in standard Synchro Summoning.
