Fusion Substitute Monster

From Yugipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A Fusion Substitute Monster is a formerly official term describing a monster with an effect that allows it to be used as a material in a Fusion Summon in place of a material with specified conditions that the monster itself doesn't inherently fulfill. The term was used by previously official rulings from Upper Deck Entertainment, but is no longer an official term used by Konami.

These monsters are not to be confused with monsters with effects that change the name of a card, which can also be used to substitute named material requirements in Fusion Summoning.

Characteristics[edit]

Shared effect[edit]

All Fusion Substitute Monsters, save for "Shaddoll Core", share the following effect (or a variant of it with additional restrictions):

  • This card can be used as a substitute for any 1 Fusion Material mentioned by name on the Fusion Monster Card, but the other material(s) must be correct.

Due to their often old age, the specific card text for this effect is not written in a consistent manner between the individual cards. However, reprinted versions of Fusion Substitute Monsters often update their card text to this latest standard.

This effect is an Unclassified Effect. It applies on the field (even while face-down), in the hand, and in the Graveyard. It does not apply while in the Main Deck or while banished, so this effect cannot be used with cards that Fusion Summon using cards in the Deck or that are banished, such as "Future Fusion" or "Parallel World Fusion".[1]

The effect only lets the Fusion Substitution Monster substitute for a Fusion Material mentioned by name on the Fusion Monster Card. The effect cannot make the monster substitute for a non-specific material (such as those on "Ojama Knight" or "Evil HERO Dark Gaia").[2] The requirement that the "other material(s) must be correct" means that each Fusion Summon can only use up to one Fusion Substitute Monster that is applying its Fusion Substitute effect.

The effect does not change the name of the card. Therefore, the substitution effect cannot be applied when Special Summoning Fusion Monsters with their Summoning conditions (also known as Contact Fusions). For the same reason, the substitution effect cannot be used in Fusion Summons with effects that use specifically named materials, such as "Cyberdark Impact!"[3][4]

If the Fusion Monster being Fusion Summoned has a condition that they must be Fusion Summoned with their listed Fusion Materials, then the substitution effect also cannot be applied.[5]

"Shaddoll Core", unlike other Fusion Substitute Monsters, substitutes for materials that list a specific Attribute, rather than materials that list a specific monster name.

Hex-Sealed Fusion Ignition effect[edit]

Each monster in the Hex-Sealed Fusion monster series (itself a series of Fusion Substitute Monsters) features the following shared effect, which has some interactions with the conditions related to Fusion Substitute Monsters:

  • You can Tribute Fusion Material Monsters on the field, including this face-up card; Special Summon 1 corresponding [Attribute] Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck.

Even though this effect performs a Special Summon rather than a Fusion Summon, the player can still apply one (and only one) Fusion Substitution effect in the process (whether it be from a Hex-Sealed Fusion monster, or a different Fusion Substitution Monster).[6] However, outside of this effect, Fusion Substitution effects cannot be applied in effects that interact with Fusion Materials but doesn't perform a Fusion Summon.[7]

The effect also bypasses the Fusion Monster condition that they must be Fusion Summoned with their listed Fusion Materials, as it performs a Special Summon rather than a Fusion Summon.
