Quick Effect

A Quick Effect, formerly called a Multi-Trigger Effect, and called an Immediate Trigger Effect (誘発即時効果 Yūhatsu Sokuji Kōka) in the OCG, is a type of monster effect that is Spell Speed 2 (and is the only Spell Speed 2 monster effect).

It is the only type of monster effect that can be activated in Summon negation window, and the only one that can be chained to another activation (excluding SEGOC). As such, monsters effects that negate the activation or Summon of something are all Quick Effects.

For cards with Problem-Solving Card Text (PSCT), starting in Maximum Crisis: Special Edition, Quick Effects are noted by mention of "(Quick Effect)" in the text. Prior to Maximum Crisis: Special Edition, for cards with PSCT, Quick Effects are normally noted by "During either player's [turn/Phase/Step]" in the activation timing, or "(this is a Quick Effect)" at the end of the effect if that wording is not applicable.

For cards without PSCT, Quick Effects are more difficult to identify. They can be identified by text which indicates the same timing as the PSCT standard. Some Quick Effects can only be determined to be that way due to rulings.

The same Quick Effect can be activated multiple times during the same chain as long as it cannot chain to itself. Quick Effects with the ability to chain to themselves may only be used multiple times per chain when they have an activation cost they can continue to pay.

Chain example[edit]

The player controls a face-up "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8", and it is currently the opponent's Main Phase 1.

Since Chains resolve backwards, this Chain would resolve as follows:
