  • The effect "The ATK of the opponent's monster is reduced by the amount of Life Points you paid, until the End Phase." starts a Chain Link. (It targets the opponent's battling monster. Paying Life Points in multiples of 100 is a cost to activate this effect.)[2]
  • This effect can only be activated once during each Damage Step. (If you control multiple copies of "Attack of the Cornered Rat", you can activate the effect of each card once.)[2]
