Link Number

A Link Number (Japanese: LINKリンクすうぶん Rinku no Sūjibun), often referred to as simply Link (Japanese: LINKリンク Rinku), is a property exclusive to Link Monsters, in place of a Level or a Rank. A Link Monster's Link Number is equal to the number of Link Markers it has.

The original Link Number of a Link Monster Card is located next to its ATK, in the space normally taken up by the DEF on other Monster Card types. In the TCG, the original Link Number can also be found in the card text box, on the same line as the Link Monster's Link Materials.

As Link Monsters do not have Levels or Ranks, they cannot be used for Ritual, Synchro, or Xyz Summons; and any effects that would refer to the Level or Rank of a monster, such as those of "Gravity Bind", "Level Limit - Area B" and "Planckton", do not affect Link Monsters. Since Link Monsters do not have Levels, cards such as "Star Changer", "Scanner" and "Yellow-Bellied Oni" do not affect them at all. Cards that modify Levels or Ranks such as "Harmonic Waves", "Feedback Warrior", and "Xiangsheng Magician" also do not affect Link Monsters.

It appears that a Link Monster's Link Number has the same role of gauging the maximum original ATK it can have as with Levels and Ranks. So far, the limits are:

  • 1000 ATK for Link 1 monsters
  • 2000 ATK for Link 2 monsters
  • 2600 ATK for Link 3 monsters
  • 3000 ATK for Link 4 monsters
