Original Level (もともとのレベル Motomoto no Reberu) and original Rank (もともとのランク Motomoto no Ranku) refer to the Level and Rank values of a Monster Card before any cards or effects alter its value. They are the Level or Rank values listed on the card.

5 cards ("Number F0: Utopic Future", "Number F0: Utopic Future - Future Slash", "Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL", "Phantasmal Lord Ultimitl Bishbaalkin", "Ultimaya Tzolkin") have a printed Level or Rank of 0, but have a condition that specifies their original Level or Rank is a different value.

The original Level of a Trap Monster or Token Monster is the Level the card text specifies it is Summoned as. However, "Dark Soul Tokens" do not have an original Level.

Spell/Trap Cards Set by the effect of "Magical Hats", and Boss Duel cards, do not have an original Level or Rank.
