OCG Rulings

  • "Chaos Burst" first destroys the monster, and then inflicts damage - they do not occur simultaneously. Because of this, you cannot activate a card that can only activate when a monster is destroyed, like "Snake Whistle", after a monster is destroyed by "Chaos Burst".[2]

Previously Official Rulings

  • You cannot activate this card when a Reptile-Type monster that is being treated as a Spell Card (by "Relinquished", etc.) is destroyed.
  • You can activate this card when your opponent's Reptile-Type monster you control (with "Brain Control", etc.) is destroyed and sent to their Graveyard.
  • You cannot activate this card if you have no Level 4 or lower Reptile-Type monsters in your Deck.


Notes

  1. The latest print of "Dark Magician of Chaos" uses Problem-Solving Card Text, which makes it clear that its effect activates during the End Phase of the turn it was Normal or Special Summoned, not when it is Summoned. This also means that its effect cannot miss the timing. This difference is due to a major change in the functionality of "Dark Magician of Chaos".
