Link Arrow

A Link Arrow, known as a Link Marker (リンクマーカー, Rinku Mākā) in the OCG, is an indicator unique to Link Monsters, used to denote where the Link Monster points to. A Link Monster's Link Rating is equal to the number of Link Arrows it has. Link Arrows are represented by red arrows radiating outward from the Link Monster's art frame.

If a Link Monster is in a Monster Zone, any Monster Zone pointed to by its Link Arrow and any other Link Monster whose Link Arrow points to its Monster Zone are linked to that Link Monster. Monsters can be Special Summoned from the Extra Deck to Main Monster Zones if they are pointed to by a Link Monster.

Link Arrows are not card effects, so links remain even if the effects of a Link Monster are negated. If a Link Monster is treated as an Equip Card, it is no longer a Link Monster, so it cannot point to anything.
