Continuous Monster Effect
Continuous Monster Effect are monster effects that persist as long as
the monster remains face-up on the field. They do not use the Chain
Block, and as such, their effect cannot be chained to. In other words,
Continuous Monster Effect cannot be affected by Herald of Orange Light,
Gladiator Beast War Chariot and Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror. Said cards
can only negate monster effects that activates in a Chain Block.
There are generally two kind of Continuous Monster Effect.
Non-conditional Continuous Monster Effect
The first kind is the Non-conditional Continuous Monster Effect. From
Gachi Gachi Gantetsu, the effect “Face-up monsters you control gain 200
ATK and DEF for each Xyz Material attached to this card” is an example
of a Non-conditional Continuous Monster Effect.
As there is no condition for the Continuous Monster Effect, the
Continuous Monster Effect will be applied the moment that monster is
successfully summon. It will continue to be in effect while that monster
remains face-up on the field, until the monster leaves the field or is
More examples of a Non-conditional Continuous Monster Effect:
- Banisher of the Radiance
- Twinheaded Beast
Conditional Continuous Monster Effect
The second kind is the Conditional Continuous Monster Effect. From Gachi
Gachi Gantetsu, the effect “If this face-up card would be destroyed,
you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead” is an example of a
Conditional Continuous Monster Effect.
Conditional Continuous Monster Effects are only applied when the
condition is met. In this sense, it is similar to Trigger Effect, but
Trigger Effect uses the Chain Block, whereas a Conditional Continuous
Monster Effects do not.
More examples of a Conditional Continuous Monster Effect:
- Bountiful Artemis
- Dark Driceratops
- Black Veloci
Both effects of Gachi Gachi Gantetsu are Continuous Monster Effect.
Hence cards like Herald of Orange Light, Gladiator Beast War Chariot and
Divine Wrath cannot be chained to it.
