Triple Tuning (トリプルチューニング, Toripuru Chūningu) is a kind of a Synchro Summon that uses three Tuner monsters, rather than the usual one. It is an upgrade of Double Tuning, and thus can be considered similar to Delta Accel Synchro, as both are further-evolved types of a Synchro Summon method.
"Red Supernova Dragon", a monster original to the card game (and an upgrade of Jack Atlas' "Red Nova Dragon", which debuted the Double Tuning mechanic), is the only monster that specifically requires Triple Tuning to be Synchro Summoned.
Triple Tuning is not an official term in the TCG/OCG, and wasn't mentioned in the anime or manga; the term was only ever officially used during the Jump Festa 2020 Duel Opera, when "Red Supernova Dragon" was Synchro Summoned by Jack's voice actor, Takanori Hoshino.

- Prior to the release of "Red Supernova Dragon", 2 other Synchro Monsters could be Synchro Summoned using 3 Tuner monsters. However, neither strictly required using 3 Tuner monsters, and their Synchro Summons were not distinguished with the "Triple Tuning" name in any media.
- "XX-Saber Gottoms" requires a Tuner and 1 or more EARTH monsters for its Synchro Summon, but it does not specify that the EARTH monsters must be non-Tuners; therefore, it can be Synchro Summoned using 3 Tuners.
- "Crystron Quariongandrax" requires two or more Tuners to be Summoned, meaning that it is possible to use 3 Tuners for its Synchro Summon.
- In the artwork of "Red Supernova Dragon", 4 orange Synchro Summoning rings are featured in the background, possibly depicting a Triple Tuning being performed.
