Limitation text is an unofficial term for the text sometimes displayed in the bottom-left corner of a card instead of a password, and details special limitations for when that card may be used.

There are currently four types of limitation text used in the TCG and two types in the OCG.

This card cannot be used in a Duel.[edit]

This limitation text states that the card is Illegal in any official Duel. This is the most common type of limitation text. However, some cards with this text are specifically allowed at Yu-Gi-Oh! Day events in Japan.

The following cards use this text:

Several Giant Cards and Case Toppers also use this text to state that only that particular copy cannot be used in a Duel, due to its nonstandard size.

Not usable in Official Duels.[edit]

This limitation text is a more direct translation of the OCG equivalent of "This card cannot be used in a Duel", and has exactly the same meaning. This is only used on the TCG promotional card "Get Your Game On!".

Not an Official Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Card.[edit]

This limitation text states that the card is considered unofficial, and thus like all unofficial cards (fan-made, counterfeit, etc.), it is illegal. This was only used on the Upper Deck Entertainment promotional "The Seal of Orichalcos", which was specifically made for and used at the Duel the Master 2005 Event, hosted by the then-distributors of the TCG.
