Manga appearances


"Forbidden" (きんじられた Kinjirareta) is an archetype of Quick-Play Spell Cards sharing similar artworks and effects. They debuted in Raging Battle and received their first support in Soul Fusion.

All the "Forbidden" cards focus on manipulating monsters' ATK (or, in the case of "Forbidden Scripture", ignoring changes in ATK and DEF during battles) and card effects, either by granting monsters immunity or by negating their effects.

Their artworks all feature a woman in a white dress holding the item. She later appears as "Condemned Maiden" and subsequently "Condemned Witch", implying that she was punished for using the four items, as seen in "Solemn Scolding". The artwork of "Forbidden Scripture" further hints that these items are truly owned by the old man featured in "Solemn Judgment" (identified as God in the Trap's Japanese name).

Origin[edit]

Despite the Greek theme and appearance of each of the cards' artwork, the inspiration behind the archetype appears to have come from the 4 most notable holy relics of Christianity.
