Dark Synchro Monster


Dark Synchro Monsters (Japanese: ダークシンクロモンスター Dāku Shinkuro Monsutā) are a type of Monster Card exclusive to the anime, manga, and Tag Force video games. The color of their card frame is black. They all have negative Levels (in the anime and video games) or are Level 0 (in the manga). These cards are placed in the Extra Deck.

Dark Synchro Monsters are Dark Synchro Summoned by sending 1 Dark Tuner monster and 1 non-Tuner monster to the Graveyard. The non-Tuner monster's Level minus the Dark Tuner monster's Level must be equal to the Dark Synchro Monster's Level.

Their negative Level stars are left-aligned (like Ranks), contrasting the right-aligned positive Levels. Their black card frame contrasts with the white card frame of regular Synchro Monsters. Dark Synchro Monsters are also Synchro Monsters, and Dark Synchro Summoning is a form of Synchro Summoning.

Dark Synchro Monsters debuted in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's episode 27. They are also present in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 4, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 5, and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 6.

Because of the greater difficulty in Summoning them, Dark Synchro Monsters are generally more powerful than Synchro Monsters of equivalent level.

In the OCG/TCG

There are no Dark Synchro Monsters in the OCG/TCG. In the OCG/TCG, all Dark Synchro Monsters have been released as regular Synchro Monsters.

Dark Synchro Monsters from the anime (except "Moon Dragon Quilla") require DARK-Attribute Tuner monsters (instead of Dark Tuner monsters) to be Synchro Summoned. Also, the non-Tuner monsters are required to be the same Type as then non-Tuner monster that was used for their Dark Synchro Summon in anime (e.g. in the anime, Grady Dark Synchro Summoned "Frozen Fitzgerald" using "Dark Tuner Catastrogue" and the Beast-Type non-Tuner "Blizzard Lizard"; as such, the TCG/OCG card "Frozen Fitzgerald" requires Beast-Type non-Tuner monsters).

The two Dark Synchro Monsters from the manga, "Ultimaya Tzolkin" and "Ultimitl Bishbalkin the Ultimate Legendary God", are Level 0 and have Summoning conditions that more closely simulate the Summon of Dark Synchro Monsters. They require sending 1 Level 5 or higher Tuner and 1 Level 5 or higher non-Tuner with the same Level from your field to the Graveyard, to equal 0 as these Synchro Monsters are Level 0.
