Specific rules[edit]

These are rules that only applied during this arc.

  • Each player starts the Duel with 2000 Life Points.
  • Neither player can attack directly.
  • Monsters can be Normal Summoned without Tributing regardless of Level.
  • Depending on where on the island the Duel takes place, there are different types of terrain on the field. Terrain provides a Field Power Bonus to monsters of certain types.
  • Only one monster was allowed to declare an attack per player per turn.[citation needed]
  • When a monster was destroyed by a card effect, the controller of that card will receive damage equal to half of that monster's ATK points.
  • A monster that is treated as an Equip Card is still treated as a monster and therefore can be used for something like Ritual Summons.[citation needed]
  • If a player fails to Summon a monster during their turn when they don't control one, they will automatically lose the duel.[citation needed]
