Cuz Grif on the IRC said I couldn't. The rulebook said nothing against it, just not an example of it. Any proof from UDE? TehBazzard 01:14, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

  • "When a monster is "Set", it is played in face-down Defense Position. Monsters cannot be Normal Summoned in face-up Defense Position, except by a card effect that allows them to be summoned that way (such as "Light of Intervention")."-From the Defense Position Page.

and that's taken straight out of the rulebook, I'm not sure what version you read, but yea.. you can't summon face-up defense position no matter how many times they do that on the show (especially GX) Klovasos17 05:35, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

There are some online games that allow it (these are generally called "house rules"), but officially you cannot. Danny Lilithborne 00:46, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
There's an OCG ruling on this:
If you want to play a monster from your hand to the field in Defense Position, then you have to Set it in face-down Defense Position. You cannot Normal Summon it in face-up Defense Position.
