The following rulings apply to all Monster Tokens:

TCG Rulings

  • Monster Tokens are monsters that appear on the field as the result of a card’s effect. They are not included in the Deck, and cannot be sent anywhere other than the field, such as the hand or Graveyard. When a Token is destroyed or returned to the hand or deck, they are simply removed from the field instead. You can use official Token cards or use coins, card sleeves, or any similar marker (as long as it can indicate Attack Position or Defense Position) as Monster Tokens and play them in Monster Card Zones. Each Monster Token takes up 1 of your 5 Monster Card Zones. Their battle position is always either face-up Attack Position or face-up Defense Position[1]. Tokens cannot be used as an Xyz Material.[2]

OCG Rulings

  • The ATK of "Kasha" is determined by the number of returned monsters which are Zombie-Type while they are in the Deck. If "Zoma the Spirit" is returned to the Deck, it is not a Zombie-Type monster while in the Deck, so it is not counted. Monster Tokens are not returned to the Deck, so they will not be counted.[6]
  • Monster Tokens cannot be sent to the Graveyard, since they disappear when they are removed from the field. Thus, they cannot be sent to the Graveyard as a Fusion Material Monster to Special Summon "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon".[8]
