Types

Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set.

In no circumstances can the card be Normal Summoned or Normal Set (including Tribute Summon and Tribute Set).

This is included on all Special Summon Monsters (i.e. Main Deck Nomi and Special Summon-only monsters, except Ritual Monsters).

Cannot be Normal Summoned.

The monster is a Normal Summon Monster, but can only be Normal Set but not Normal Summoned.

"Mystic Swordsman LV6" is an example of such a monster.

This card can only be Normal Summoned by…

The monster is a Normal Summon Monster that has a specific procedure to Normal Summon it. For example, "Flamvell Commando" can only be Normal Summoned by Tributing 1 "Flamvell" monster.

Several monsters require specific Tributes for their Tribute Summon, but in many cases this is simply a restriction on Tribute Summons and not Normal Summons.

Requires 3 Tributes to Normal Summon/Set.

A specific variant of the previous condition. The monster can be Tribute Summoned, but requires 3 Tributes to do so (regardless of its Level).

Some monsters with this condition (such as the Egyptian God cards and Match winners) also specify that they cannot be Normal Set. Others (such as "Apoqliphort" monsters) can be Normal Summoned or Set.

Additionally, some monsters with this condition (such as the "Apoqliphort" monsters and Match winners) also specify requirements the kinds of monsters that can be Tributed for their Tribute Summon.

You can Tribute 3 monsters to Tribute Summon (but not Set) this card.

Some monsters can be Tribute Summoned by Tributing 3 monsters to gain an effect, but can also be Normal Summoned with other numbers of Tributes.

Examples include "Gilford the Lightning" and "Moisture Creature".

You can Normal Summon/Set this card without Tributing…

Some Level 5 and higher monsters can be Normal Summoned or Set without Tributing, due to their effect. Monsters Summoned this way are no treated as being Tribute Summoned.

Examples include "Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight" and "Fusilier Dragon, the Dual-Mode Beast".
