Flip Effects (called Reverse Effects (リバース効果 Ribāsu Kōka) in the OCG) happen when a Flip Effect Monster is flipped face-up; either by battle, a Flip Summon, or a card effect that specifically flips it up such as "Swords of Revealing Light". Cards like "Ceasefire" can flip face-down cards face-up, but specifically prevent no Flip Effects from being activated.
If the monster is flipped up and destroyed by battle, the card is destroyed first, then its effect is activated and resolved on the field in the Damage Step after damage calculation; since the card is already destroyed, effects like that of "Hane-Hane" cannot target themselves.
Not all monsters with effects that activate upon flipping face-up are Flip Effect monsters. There are also Pseudo-Flip Effect monsters whose effects can bypass those that negate Flip Effects (such as "Ceasefire").
In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses, a Flip Effect is a one-time effect that is activated only when the card is manually flipped face-up or as a result of another event, such as battle.
