Non-Effect Monster

From Yugipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A non-Effect Monster is a Monster Card without a monster effect. This includes all Normal Monsters (including Normal Pendulum Monsters, Token Monsters and Gemini monsters while treated as Normal Monsters) and certain Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Link Monsters.


Non-Normal Monsters are non-Effect Monsters in the following cases:

Even if the only card text on an Effect Monster Card is a condition, such as "Cyber Harpie Lady" and "Exodia the Forbidden One", that monster is not treated as a non-Effect Monster.

Token Monsters are treated as non-Effect Monsters and will be affected by "Non-Spellcasting Area"; however, Tokens cannot be sent to the Graveyard as a cost, and thus will not work with "White Elephant's Gift".

Effects affecting non-Effect Monsters[edit]

Several cards specifically affect non-Effect Monsters; these are "Backup Soldier", "Cosmo Brain", "Daigusto Emeral", "Defender of the Labyrinth", "Draco Masters of the Tenyi", "Fists of the Unrivaled Tenyi", "Flawless Perfection of the Tenyi", "Gaia Drake, the Universal Force", "Heavenly Dragon Circle", "Metamorformation", "Non-Spellcasting Area", "Shaman of the Tenyi", "Tenyi Spirit - Adhara", "Tenyi Spirit - Ashuna", "Tenyi Spirit - Mapura", "Tenyi Spirit - Nahata", "Tenyi Spirit - Sahasrara", "Tenyi Spirit - Shthana", "Tenyi Spirit - Vishuda", "Tyrant Farm", "Vessel for the Dragon Cycle", "White Elephant's Gift".

Non-Effect Monsters being given effects[edit]

Some cards can give non-Effect Monsters an effect when used as a Material for their Summon, or as part of the requirement for their Ritual Summon. If a non-Effect Monster is given an effect this way, the monster becomes an Effect Monster, so can be affected by cards like "Effect Veiler" and "Skill Drain".[1]

Some cards, such as "Sword Hunter", can grant effects to Monster Cards they equip to themselves as Equip Spell Cards, even cards that are originally non-Effect Monsters.
