Maximum Mode

Maximum Mode (マキシマムモード Makishimamu Mōdo) is a term in Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel used to refer to a state of three Maximum Monsters that have been simultaneously Maximum Summoned as a single monster.[1] Maximum Monsters can only activate or apply their effects while they are in this state, and this state cannot be entered by Summoning the three Maximum Monsters separately. A Maximum Monster in Maximum Mode cannot exist in Defense Position, nor does it have DEF, and while they are in Maximum Mode, their MAXIMUM ATK is the ATK value applied to the single monster.

The Level, Type, and Attribute of the combined Maximum Monster is based on the central card. Even though a Maximum Monster in Maximum Mode is composed of three monster cards, it is still treated as one monster; if the Maximum Monster in Maximum Mode leaves the field and is sent to a new location, all three component Maximum Monsters are sent to the same location, and they only count as a single Tribute for a Tribute Summon.

While in Maximum Mode, the three cards making up the Maximum Monster are placed directly side-by-side on the field so that their artworks connect, rather than in the Monster Zones, as seen in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime where the Monster Zones on the Duel Disk slide together without separators, and in the Yu-Gi-Oh! RUSH DUEL: Dawn of the Battle Royale!! video game.
