  • Armed Samurai - Ben Kei: Even if "Armed Samurai Ben Kei" is equipped, attacks twice, and you use "Tailor of the Fickle" to move its Equip Card to another monster, and then use "Collected Power" to move it back, "Armed Samurai Ben Kei" has already attacked twice and gets no additional attacks.
  • Ekibyo Drakmord: If control of a monster equipped with "Ekibyo Drakmord" changes, the turn count resets. If "Ekibyo Drakmord" is moved by "Collected Power" or "Tailor of the Fickle" to another monster, the turn count resets.
  • Morale Boost: "Morale Boost"'s effect includes when "Tailor of the Fickle" is used.
  • Premature Burial: You cannot activate "Tailor of the Fickle" selecting "Premature Burial" as a target.
  • Scroll of Bewitchment: If you switch the target of this card with "Collected Power" or "Tailor of the Fickle" you do not select a new Attribute. The newly equipped monster becomes the Attribute that was originally selected when "Scroll of Bewitchment" was activated, even if it is the same as the monster's original Attribute.
  • Shooting Star Bow - Ceal: If a monster equipped with "Shooting Star Bow - Ceal" declares a direct attack, and "Shooting Star Bow - Ceal" is removed from the monster during the Battle Step with "Mystical Space Typhoon" or "Tailor of the Fickle", the monster is no longer capable of attacking directly and a replay occurs.
