TCG Rulings

Mentions in Other Rulings

  • Light End Dragon: If “Light End Dragon” or “Dark End Dragon” activate their effects, but an effect like “Shrink” is chained, so that when the effect resolves, they have less than 500 ATK or DEF, you cannot reduce their ATK and DEF by 500 to resolve the effect, so the effect is not applied.
  • Pestilence: If you use Shrink on a monster equipped with Pestilence, the monster’s ATK will be half of its original ATK while Shrink is being applied. It will return to 0 when Shrink is no longer applied.[2]
  • Pestilence: If Pestilence is equipped to a monster that is already being affected by Shrink, its ATK will be 0. If Pestilence is removed from the field before Shrink’s effect stops applying, the ATK will become half of its original ATK.[2]

OCG Rulings

Versus Effects which Alter Original ATK

Versus Effects which are Applied Continuously

Versus Lingering Effects

  • Honest: After a monster has had its ATK increased by "Honest", when it is targetted by "Shrink", the monster's ATK becomes half its original ATK.[15]

Miscellaneous

Previously Official Rulings

  • Even if a monster is targeted by multiple copies of "Shrink", its ATK will still be half of its original ATK. For example, if a monster with 1400 original ATK is affected by 2 copies of "Shrink", its ATK will be 700 NOT 350.[20][21]
  • The effect of "Shrink" works like "Megamorph", setting a new current ATK based on original ATK. If the same monster is targeted by both "Shrink" and "Megamorph", only the effect of the card that resolved last will be applied.[20][21]
  • If “Shrink” affects a monster with ATK that varies due to its Continuous Effect, like “Gren Maju Da Eiza” or “King of the Skull Servants”, that monster’s ATK will be halved. If its ATK changes due to its own effect in the same turn, recalculate the effect of "Shrink" based on the new original ATK. When the effect of “Shrink” wears off, that monster’s ATK will be calculated as normal.[20]
  • If "Shrink" affects a monster whose ATK is doubled by "Limiter Removal", that monster's ATK will become half of its original (printed) ATK.[20]
  • If a monster affected by "Shrink" attacks while "Mirror Wall" is in play, both effects are applied and the monster's ATK becomes 1/4 its original ATK. Because "Mirror Wall" continually recalculates, the result is the same no matter which card is activated first.[20]
  • If a monster whose ATK is reduced by "Dark Jeroid" is affected by "Shrink", first calculate half that monster's original ATK, then subtract 800 for "Dark Jeroid's" effect; this becomes the monster's current ATK.[20]
  • If "Exarion Universe" is targeted by "Shrink", its ATK will become half of its original ATK, even if its effect to reduce its own ATK by 400 has been used.[20]

Mentions in Other Rulings

  • Black Garden: If a monster has its ATK halved by "Black Garden", and afterwards its original ATK is halved by "Shrink", the monster's ATK becomes half its original ATK. When the effect of "Shrink" is no longer applied, the monster's ATK returns to its original ATK.
  • Karate Man: If the effect of "Shrink" is applied after "Karate Man's" effect has been used, its ATK will become 500. If "Karate Man" is affected by "Shrink", then its effect is activated, its ATK will become 2000.
  • Light and Darkness Dragon: If "Shrink" is used to halve the original ATK of "Light and Darkness Dragon", the original ATK of "Light and Darkness Dragon" is halved to create a new current ATK and then the ATK and DEF lost by the effect of "Light and Darkness Dragon" is reapplied. Example: If you use the second effect of "Light and Darkness Dragon" twice (500 X 2 = 1000 lost ATK and DEF) and "Shrink" is used to halve the original ATK of "Light and Darkness Dragon", the effect of "Shrink" is applied (2800 / 2 = 1400 ATK) and then "Light and Darkness Dragon's"ATK is reduced by 1000 (1400 - 1000 = 400) for a total of 400 ATK and 1400 DEF. When the effect of "Shrink" is no longer applied (because the turn had ended, etc.), reapply the lost ATK and DEF to the "Light and Darkness Dragon's" original ATK of 2800. (In our example, the values would be 1800 ATK and 1400 DEF)
  • Riryoku: If this card targets a monster that is affected by "Shrink", its ATK will become half of the halved ATK, or 1/4 its original ATK. If a monster whose ATK is halved by "Riryoku" is affected by "Shrink", its ATK will become half of its original (printed) ATK.
  • Shield & Sword: If "Shrink" affects a monster affect by "Shield & Sword" after "Shield & Sword's" effect is applied, its ATK will be half of the switched ATK (ie., half of its original DEF). If "Shield & Sword's" effect is applied after "Shrink's", that monster's ATK will become equal to its original DEF, and its original DEF will be equal to its original ATK (The effect of "Shrink" effectively disappears).
