Normal Summon Monster
|This article is a stub. You can help Yugipedia by expanding it.|
A Normal Summon Monster (通常召喚モンスター, Tsūjō Shōkan Monsutā) is a monster that can be Normal Summoned and/or Normal Set. This term is typically used in Japanese rulings to distinguish monsters from Special Summon Monsters.
Some Normal Summon Monsters have effects that let them Special Summon themselves without starting a chain (e.g.: "Cyber Dragon"). Despite the similarities with the non-Chaining Summoning conditions of Special Summon Monsters, this does not make them Special Summon Monsters.
Monsters that cannot be Normal Summoned, but can be Normal Set (e.g.: "Mystic Swordsman LV4"), are still considered Normal Summon Monsters.
