What is an Xyz Monster and how do I summon it?
Xyz Monsters are placed in the Extra Deck at the start of the Duel.

What is a Synchro Monster and how do I summon it?
Synchro Monsters are placed in the Extra Deck at the start of a Duel.
You can Special Summon a powerful Synchro Monster to the field in an instant just by using the Levels of your monsters.
You can Synchro Summon them from the Extra Deck by sending 1 face-up “Tuner” monster and any number of face-up non-Tuner monsters from your side of the field to the Graveyard. Make sure the sum of all their Levels are exactly equal to the Level of the Synchro Monster!
Some Synchro monsters have different requirements in order for you to summon them, be sure to check out the card as this will be where all the information you need will be listed.
In order to Synchro Summon a Synchro Monster, you need 1 Tuner Monster. The Tuner Monster and other face-up monsters you use for the Synchro Summon are called Synchro Material Monsters.
To check out how to Synchro Summon, take a look below and let’s rev it up!
1 - During your Main Phase, you can declare a Synchro Summon when the combined total Levels of 1 face-up Tuner Monster and any number of other face-up monsters you control are equal to the Level of the Synchro Monster you want to Synchro Summon.
2 - After double-checking the Level of the Synchro Monster you want, send the face-up Synchro Material Monsters from your side of the field to the Graveyard. Remember, only 1 can be a Tuner Monster.
3 - After sending the monsters from the field to the Graveyard, take the Synchro Monster from your Extra Deck and play it onto the field in face-up Attack or Defense Position.
What is a Ritual Monster and how do I summon it?
Ritual Monsters are monsters that are Special Summoned with a specific Ritual Spell Card, along with a required Tribute.
Ritual Monster Cards are placed in the Main Deck and cannot be Summoned unless you have all the proper cards together in your hand or on the field.
The first Ritual Monsters appeared in Yu-Gi-Oh! when the Pharaoh took on Pegasus’ “Relinquished” with “Magician of Black Chaos”. To learn how to Ritual Summon like the Pharaoh check out the steps below because it’s time to duel!
1 - When you have a Ritual Spell Card, along with the matching Ritual Monster Card, in your hand, along with the required Tribute (as listed on the Ritual Spell Card), you can activate the Ritual Spell Card, placing it in the Spell & Trap Card Zone.
2 - If the activation of the Ritual Spell Card is successful, Tribute monsters by sending them from your hand or the field to the Graveyard. The Ritual Spell Card will list the required amount to Tribute.
3 - After sending the Tributed monsters to the Graveyard, play the Ritual Monster Card on the field in either face-up Attack or Defense Position. Finally, place the Ritual Spell Card in the Graveyard.
What is a Fusion Monster and how do I summon it?
Fusion Monsters are also placed in your Extra Deck at the start of the game.
They are Summoned by using the specific monsters listed on the card, known as Fusion Material Monsters, combined with a Summoning card like "Polymerization" or another card that allows you to perform a fusion summon.
If you want to get your game on like Jaden, check out how to Fusion Summon with these 3 easy steps!
1 - If you have all the Fusion Material Monsters listed on the Fusion Monster Card, in the places specified on your Summoning card, you can activate your Summoning card by placing it in your Spell & Trap Card Zone.
2 - Send the Fusion Material Monsters to the Graveyard, then take the appropriate Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck and play it onto the field in either face-up Attack or Defense Position. Finally, place your Summoning card in the Graveyard. (If another card effect causes your Fusion Material Monsters to be sent to a place other than the Graveyard when your Summoning card resolves, send them to that other place but the Fusion Summon still happens anyway.)
3 - Remember that in order to use a Fusion Monster during a Duel it needs to be in your Extra Deck. Since a Fusion Summon requires specific cards, be sure to include those necessary cards in your Main Deck
