- "Once per turn: You can pay 500 LP, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; that monster loses 500 ATK." [sic] effect starts a Chain Link. (This effect can only be activated during your Main Phase. It targets. Paying 500 Life Points is a cost to activate this effect.)

- If you have a face-up DARK Pendulum Monster in your Extra Deck, you can Special Summon that monster even if it is not a "D/D" monster.
