"Toon" (トゥーン Tūn) is an archetype of cards used by Maximillion Pegasus.

All Toon monsters are "Toon" cards—including "Manga Ryu-Ran", because it has 「トゥーン」 in its Japanese name. "Toon Alligator" is the only monster of this archetype that is not also a Toon monster.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Each "Toon" monster (with the exception of "Toon Alligator") is a highly exaggerated cartoon caricature of another monster.

In the original manga and anime series, Toon monsters are simply the original monsters after being transformed by "Toon World". After they appeared as separate cards in the OCG, Toon monsters appeared as separate cards in the anime as well.

Members[edit]

Based on their effect patterns, "Toon" monsters can be divided into several types of designs.

Special Summon-only Monster (Toon World Required)

Shared effects:

  • Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by Tributing [the same amount of monsters as required for a Tribute Summon of a monster with its original Level], while you control "Toon World".
  • Cannot attack the turn it is Special Summoned.
  • You must pay 500 LP to declare an attack with this monster.
  • If "Toon World" on the field is destroyed, destroy this card.
  • Can attack your opponent directly, unless they control a Toon monster, in which case this card must target a Toon monster for its attacks.

Playing style[edit]

The main strategy of a "Toon" Deck is direct attacks on your opponent. For some Toon monsters, "Toon World" is required for them to be able to attack the opponent directly while they control monsters. "Toon Table of Contents" and "Toon Bookmark" can aid you in adding "Toon" cards to your hand.

As several Toon monsters can be Special Summoned from the hand by their own effect, while you control "Toon World", it's possible to Summon multiple Toon monsters in one turn. Although Level 5 or higher Toon monsters require Tributes for their Special Summon, as the Tributes are not Tributes for a Tribute Summon, you can Tribute Monster Tokens generated from cards like "Scapegoat" and "Fires of Doomsday".

Since a lot of the Toon monsters can be Special Summoned when "Toon World" is on your field you can create a big swarm of monsters for a fast Xyz Summon or Summon a Tuner monster for a fast Synchro Summon.

"Toon Gemini Elf" and "Toon Masked Sorcerer" can maintain hand control, because they can attack directly while you control "Toon World", at which time their effects will trigger ("Toon Gemini Elf" forces your opponent to discard a random card from their hand, while "Toon Masked Sorcerer" allows you to draw a card).

With the addition of cards such as "Red-Eyes Toon Dragon" and "Toon Dark Magician", Toon decks can not only swarm a lot easier and get access to their support a lot more consistently as well, but opens the deck up for Rank 7 Xyz Summon plays as well. Cards such as "The Black Stone of Legend" and "Toon Page-Flip" can make the task of summoning these high-level Toon monsters a lot easier, and the additions of Toon Black Luster Soldier" and "Toon Harpie Lady" create removal opportunities as well.

Strengths[edit]

  • The ability to always attack directly unless facing another Toon deck allows the player to inflict large amounts of damage and avoid hard to deal with opposing monsters.
  • "Comic Hand" uses your opponent's monsters against them, which can make up for the lack of removal Toon cards have.
  • "Red-Eyes Toon Dragon", "Toon Dark Magician", and "Toon Mask" are ideal methods for swarming with other Toon monsters while ignoring their Summoning conditions; "Comic Hand" can also bolster their presence by virtue of turning the targeted opponent's monster into a Toon.
  • If "Toon World" would be destroyed, "Emergency Provisions" can be chained to send it to the Graveyard instead, preventing your Toons from destroying themselves via their own effects.
  • "Starlight Road" is very useful against mass destruction cards that pose a threat against "Toon World".
