  • Discarding a card is an effect, not a cost. You can activate the effects of "Dark World" monsters discarded by this effect.[1]
  • If your opponent activates an Effect Monster's effect to destroy this card and you Chain an effect to take control of their monster, you can still discard 1 card from your hand to prevent this card from being destroyed by the effect.[1]
  • You choose which card you want to discard to prevent this card's destruction.[1]
