A Maximum Summon (マキシマム召喚 Makishimamu Shōkan) is a form of Special Summon introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS for Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel. Maximum Summoning is the act of Summoning three specific Maximum Monsters simultaneously from the hand in Attack Position in "Maximum Mode" as a single monster.
During their Main Phase, if the turn player has three specific Maximum Monsters in their hand, that player can Maximum Summon those three monsters from their hand simultaneously. If the player already controls monsters, they can send them all to the Graveyard to Maximum Summon. A player can only Maximum Summon Maximum Monsters in Attack Position, as Maximum Monsters in Maximum Mode cannot exist in Defense Position, and Maximum Summoning is the only way to make Maximum Monsters enter Maximum Mode. The specific monsters monsters required for a Maximum Summon are listed in the center Maximum Monster's card text.
In the anime
When a Maximum Summon is performed in the anime, three energy spheres emerge from the three Maximum Monsters that the Duelist is holding, and then the Duelist places the three Maximum Monsters on their Duel Disk. The Monster Zones then slide together to connect the artwork of the Maximum Monsters, and the separators on the Duel Disk between the Monster Zone "road" entrances slide aside, allowing a holographic duplicate of the card to be projected into the air on a golden road of light as opposed to the usual blue and intersect with the golden energy, after which the Maximum Mode Maximum Monsters arise.
