Link State

A monster is in a Linked State (リンクじょうたい, Rinku Jōtai) if its Link Marker is pointing to a monster, or if it has at least one Link Monster's Link Marker pointing to it.

Mutual Link

A Mutual Link (そうリンク, Sougo Rinku) is a kind of Link State that occurs when two Link Monsters' Link Markers are pointing to each other. For example, if one player controls a Link Monster with a Down Link Marker in an Extra Monster Zone, and a Link Monster with an Up Link Marker in their Main Monster Zone in the same column, those two Link Monsters are in a Mutual Link.

Extra Link

An Extra Link is a chain of Mutual Links that enables a player to occupy both Extra Monster Zones simultaneously. This is the only way for a player to control monsters in both Extra Monster Zones.

A player can perform an Extra Link, so long as the following conditions are met:

  1. The player controls a Link Monster in an Extra Monster Zone while the other Extra Monster Zone is unoccupied.
  2. The three middle Main Monster Zones on one side of the field must be occupied by Link Monsters.
  3. Each of the Link Monsters involved in the Extra Link must be in a Mutual Link with the orthogonally adjacent Link Monsters that are also involved in the Extra Link.
  4. The Link Monster involved in the Extra Link occupying the Main Monster Zone in the same column as the unoccupied Extra Monster Zone must have a Link Marker pointing to that unoccupied Extra Monster Zone.

In that case, a Link Monster can be Summoned to the unoccupied Extra Monster Zone, as long as it maintains the Extra Link by meeting the following conditions:

  1. The Summoned Link Monster will be in a Mutual Link with the monster involved in the Extra Link that is in the same column as it.
  2. Performing the Summon of that Link Monster does not disturb the Extra Link (e.g. by using the monsters involved in the Extra Link as Link Materials).

The final result is a U-shaped chain of five Link Monsters, in which all five of the Link Monsters involved are in a Mutual Link with the orthogonally adjacent Link Monsters that are in that U-shape.
