TCG Rulings

  • Returning the removed from play card to the hand does not start a Chain.[1]

OCG Rulings

  • This card can be activated directly in Chain to the activation of a Spell/Trap Card, or at the time a monster is Normal Summoned face-up.[2]
  • It can be activated during the Damage Step directly in Chain to an activated Spell/Trap Card.[2]
  • Resolving "Negate the activation of a Spell or Trap Card, or the Normal Summon of a monster" and "remove that card from play" are treated as being done at the same time.[2]
  • Resolving "The card removed from play by this effect is returned to its owner's hand during the End Phase" does not make a Chain Link.[2]
