There are many occasions in which a card, in the anime, may contradict its lore in the anime. These are usually due to errors on the writers' part.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX[edit]

  • Feather Shot - Select 1 face-up "Elemental Hero Avian" on your side of the field to activate this card. This turn, the selected card can attack as many times as the number of monster(s) on your side of the field when this card resolves.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card's written anime lore in its debut is the same as OCG lore which forbids direct attacks, however in episode 15, "Avian", who was affected by this card's effect, was able to attack directly as part of Jaden's winning move.
  • Gravekeeper's Watcher - When your opponent activates a card that includes an effect that requires your opponent to discard from his/her hand, send this card from your hand to the Graveyard to negate the activation and effect of the card and destroy it.
    • Reason for contradiction: The anime effect of "Transcendent Wings" has the discarding as a cost and this card's effect only negates effects where discarding is part of the effect.
  • Ancient Gear Castle - Face-up "Ancient Gear" monsters gain 300 ATK. Each time you Normal Summon or Set a monster(s), put 1 counter on this card. If you Tribute Summon an "Ancient Gear" monster, you can substitute this card for a Tribute(s), if the number of counters is equal to or greater than the number of required Tribute(s).
    • Reason for contradiction: This card's effect didn't activate when Camula Normal Summoned a monster when this card was used for the Duel between Crowler and Camula.
  • Cyber Barrier Dragon - This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card can only be Special Summoned with "Attack Reflector Unit". Once per turn, while this card is face-up on the field, you can negate the first attack made by an opponent's monster.
    • Reason for contradiction: In Zane's Duel against Camula and Zane's Duel against Yubel, he was able to activate this card's effect immediately after it was summoned, which it can't do in the TCG/OCG. It was also apparent during Zane and Camula's Duel, that this card was a Semi-Nomi in the anime, as Zane had the thought of using "Call of the Haunted" to revive this card.
  • Second Coin Toss - When a coin toss is performed, you can choose to redo the coin toss. (If the toss involved multiple coin flips, just redo the coin toss you are currently doing.) You can only use the effect of "Second Coin Toss" once per turn.
    • Reason for contradiction: When Pierre used this card's effect to insure that he gets three Heads on the effect of "Sand Gambler", he only redid the second coin toss instead of starting over at the beginning.
  • De-Fusion - Send 1 Fusion Monster on the field to the Graveyard or return 1 Fusion Monster on the field to the Fusion Deck. In addition, if all the Fusion Material Monsters are in the owner's Graveyard, Special Summon them all to the Fusion Monster's controller's side of the field.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card's written lore was written with the DM lore, but it used its TCG/OCG effect with the exception of Zane's Duel against Camula, Jaden and Zane's second Duel, and Jaden's Duel against Rose as the targeted Fusion Monster went to the Graveyard in those cases instead of the Extra Deck.
  • Counterattack! - Activate only during either player's Battle Phase. Once during this turn, if a monster attacks one of your monsters, the monster that was attacked must attack this turn, ignoring replays or conditions.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card was activated on Syrus' Battle Phase and it was established that Syrus and Hassleberry can't attack their own monsters hence "Training Field" being activated. Also "Element Saurus" had to have attacked, otherwise "Training Field" wouldn't have boosted its ATK.
  • Dark Creator - This card cannot be destroyed by battle or declare a direct attack. If this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle(except "Dark Creator"), inflict 700 damage to your opponent.
    • Reason for contradiction: Since the Dark Creator Tokens had the same effects of "Dark Creator", the effect of the "Dark Creator Token" Jaden used to destroy "Dark Creator" once and for all should have activated when "Dark Creator" was destroyed in battle, but it did not do so.
  • Contact (Season 3 onward) - Send all "Chrysalis" monsters on the field to the Graveyard, and Special Summon the monsters that are written in the card texts of those cards, ignoring their Summoning conditions, from your hand or Deck.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card's written anime lore in season 3 onward, was written in the same way as the OCG lore, however this card still uses the anime lore's effect as shown with Jaden using this card to summon more than one "Neo-Spacian" on various occasions.
  • "Sauropod Brachion" - When a monster(s) is Summoned to your opponent's side of the field, you can change this card from face-up Attack Position to face-up Defense Position.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card's written anime lore states it is switched to face-down Defense Position, but this card was switched to face-up Defense Position when "Fossil Dragon Skullgios" was summoned.
  • Elemental HERO Wildheart - This card is unaffected by Trap Cards and can't be targeted by their effects.
    • Reason for contradiction: The effect of "Dark Cure" didn't activate when this card was summoned even though this card can still be targeted for the effects of Traps.
  • Elemental HERO Necroshade - While this card is in the Graveyard, one time only you can Normal Summon 1 "Elemental Hero" monster from your hand without Tributing any monsters. If you Normal Summon a monster this way, you can Normal Summon twice this turn.
  • Freed the Brave Wanderer - Once per turn, you can remove from play 2 LIGHT monsters in your Graveyard to destroy 1 face-up monster on the field whose original ATK is higher than this card.
    • Reason for contradiction: When Jaden used this card's effect on "Power Annihilator", this card's ATK was higher than the ATK of "Power Annihilator" and that would make it impossible for Jaden to use this card's effect to destroy "Power Annihilator".
  • Wicked Canon - When you take Battle Damage, you can send 1 "Wicked Rune" Spell Card from your hand or Deck to the Graveyard. You can remove from play this face-up card you control and all "Wicked Rune" cards from your Graveyard to Special Summon 1 monster from your Fusion Deck that can only be Special Summoned with "Super Polymerization", ignoring the Summoning conditions OR 1 Fusion Material Monster, from your Deck, that is listed on a Fusion Monster in your Fusion Deck that can only be Special Summoned with "Super Polymerization", and whose Level is equal to or less than the number of "Wicked Rune" Spell Cards removed x 2.
  • Common Soul - Select 1 face-up monster on the field. Special Summon 1 "Neo-Spacian" monster from your hand to the same side of the field as the selected monster. The selected monster gains ATK equal to the ATK of the monster that was Special Summoned by this effect. When this card is removed from the field, return the Special Summoned monster to its owner's hand. When the Special Summoned monster is removed from the field, destroy this card.
  • Super Polymerization - Send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard. Send 1 Fusion Material Monster you control and 1 card from either side of the field to the Graveyard that are listed on a Fusion Monster Card, and Special Summon that monster from your Fusion Deck. (This Special Summon is treated as a Fusion Summon that ignores Summoning Conditions.) Spells, Traps, and Monsters' effects cannot be activated in response to this card's activation and that monster's Special Summon.
    • Reason for contradiction: In both the anime and the real card game, "Evil Hero Dark Gaia" and "Evil Hero Malicious Fiend" must be summoned with "Dark Fusion", yet the Supreme King summoned both those monsters with this card even though this card does not ignore summoning conditions.
  • Destiny HERO - Diamond Dude (Season 3 onward) - Once per turn, you can reveal the top card of your Deck. If it is a Spell Card, send it to the Graveyard and you can activate its effect during the Main Phase of your next turn. If the card is not a Spell Card, place it on the bottom of your Deck.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card used its TCG/OCG effect from season 3 onward as shown with Aster activating "Destiny Draw" through this card's effect in episode 144.
  • Force of Four - When this card is activated, if a player(s) has more than 4 cards in their hand, they must send cards to the Graveyard until there are 4 cards in their hand. While either player has 4 cards in their hand, if they draw a card(s) during their Draw Phase or activate an effect that would add a new card(s) from their Deck or Graveyard to their hand, they must send all those cards to the Graveyard instead.
    • Reason for contradiction: This was not said in the written lore, but when Adrian Gecko drew "Exodia the Forbidden One" through his Draw Phase, this card forced him to send that card to the Graveyard, which prevented him from completing Exodia at that point.
  • Ritual of the Ultimate Forbidden Lord - You can activate this card while there are 5 different "Forbidden One" cards in your hand or Graveyard and this card is in your Graveyard. Return all "Forbidden One" cards in your Graveyard to your Deck. Discard 2 "Forbidden One" cards from your hand to the Graveyard, and Special Summon 1 "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" from your hand or Deck. (The Deck is then shuffled.) While this card is in the Graveyard and "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" is on your side of the field, when a "Forbidden One" card(s) is sent to the Graveyard by a card effect, except by the effect of "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord", return that card(s) to the Deck.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card's effect activated in the Graveyard in both Duels it was used in despite the lore not saying so.
  • Elemental HERO Shining Flare Wingman - This monster cannot be Special Summoned except by Fusion Summon. This card gains 300 ATK for each "Elemental Hero" card in your Graveyard. When this card destroys a monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard, inflict damage to your opponent equal to the original ATK of that monster.
    • Reason for contradiction: When "Shining Flame Wingman" destroyed "Ojama King" in battle, its effect activated and inflict 3000 damage to Chazz when it should have inflicted none since "Ojama King" had 0 ATK when it was in the Graveyard and the anime effect of "Ojamuscle", in episode 166, affected the original ATK of "Ojama King". In Jaden's Duel against Ojin, this card's effect inflicted no damage to Ojin" since "Satellite Cannon" had an original ATK of 0.
  • Level Bond - Your opponent draws 2 cards. Special Summon 1 "LV" monster from your Graveyard, ignoring the Summoning conditions. That monster's effects are negated, and it cannot attack this turn.
    • Reason for contradiction: Though the written lore said that you must banish two LV monsters with the same name from your Graveyard and Special Summon a LV monster with the same name as the banished monsters from your Deck, this is not what happened in the episode. Aster just drew two cards and Chazz just revived one of the "Armed Dragon LV7" from his Graveyard.
  • Mirror Gate - Activate only when an opponent's monster battles a monster that you control. Switch control of the battling monsters, and then calculate damage. Control of those monsters switch back during the End Phase.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card's written anime lore doesn't say that the affected monsters switch control during the End Phase, but this happened during Jaden's Duel against Jesse in episode 172.
  • Clear Wall - If "Clear World" is not face-up on the field, destroy this card. Attack Position "Clear" monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle. All Battle Damage less than 1000 you would take from a battle involving a "Clear" monster you control becomes 0. If you would take 1000 or more damage from a battle involving a "Clear" monster you control and that "Clear" monster would be destroyed by battle, you can destroy this card instead.
    • Reason for contradiction: When Yusuke destroys this card, it stopped "Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus" from destroying "Clear Rage Golem" or inflicting Battle Damage. Battle Damage occurs before a monster is destroyed by battle and the written card lore states the last effect stops Battle Damage only, so "Clear Rage Golem" should have still been destroyed.
  • Rare Value (later anime) (Episode 176 only)- When there are 2 or more "Crystal Beast" cards in your Spell & Trap Card Zone, select 1 random card among them and send it to the Graveyard to draw 2 cards.
    • This card's written anime lore in season 4 matches its TCG/OCG effect and was used as such in episode 172. In episode 176, this card instead used its anime effect from season 3.
  • Neos Wiseman - This card cannot be destroyed by card effects. When this card attacks an opponent's monster, inflict damage to your opponent equal to the ATK of the target monster, and gain Life Points equal to that target monster's DEF. When this card is destroyed by battle, you can remove from play 1 "Yubel" from your Graveyard to Special Summon 1 "Elemental Hero Neos" from your Graveyard.
    • Reason for contradiction: The second effect of "Neos Wiseman" didn't activate when "Darkness Neosphere" attacked it. Had that happened, Jaden would have already have won the Duel at that point and there would have been no reason to summon "Elemental HERO Divine Neos".
  • Dark Renewal - Activate only during the turn in which your opponent summons a monster. Tribute one summoned monster on your opponent's side of the field and one monster on your side of the field to Special Summon one Spellcaster-type monster from your Graveyard.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card's written anime lore wouldn't have worked in conjunction with "Code Change" as the latter card changes the writing on a card so it can summon a monster of the declared type and this card's written anime lore explicitly states that it Special Summons a "Dark Magician" from the controller's Graveyard.
  • Mystical Refpanel - Activate only when your opponent activates a Spell Card. You may negate the effect of that card. At anytime, you can select and activate one of the following effects.
    ● Change the target of the Spell Card to another appropriate target. If the Spell Card was an Equip Spell Card, destroy it on the End Phase.
    ● Use the negated card from the Graveyard as your card or your opponent's card.
    • Reason for contradiction: This card saved the effect of "Code Change" for when Yugi needed it in episode 180. In reality, he should have used the effect of "Code Change" as soon as he had activated this card.
