piercing battle damage


Piercing battle damage is battle damage dealt by a monster attacking a Defense Position monster if the defending monster's DEF is lower than the attacking monster's ATK. This type of battle damage is only dealt if granted by a card effect; otherwise, no battle damage is dealt in this situation.

Although "Piercing" is the official term, it is occasionally colloquially referred to instead as "Trample", borrowing the term from Magic: The Gathering.

Interestingly, because Equip Spell Cards that allow monsters to inflict piercing damage deal damage to the opponent of the controller of the Equip Spell Card rather than the opponent of the controller of the monster, if a player equips a card like "Fairy Meteor Crush" to an opponent's monster and the opponent attacks the player's Defense Position monster, the opponent will take battle damage instead of the player.


Player A's "Dark Driceratops" (ATK 2400) attacks Player B's Defense Position "Mystical Elf" (DEF 2000). Regardless of whether "Mystical Elf" is destroyed or not, Player B takes the difference (400 points in this case) as damage.


For cards whose effects allow themselves to inflict piercing battle damage, the following text appears on the card:

If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent.

Prior to the Problem-Solving Card Text, it would be formatted as:

During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent.

On "Cyberdark Horn" only, prior to the Problem-Solving Card Text (when "piercing" became widely used), the following text appeared:

This card inflicts Piercing damage.


The following cards automatically have or allow Piercing in OCG and TCG:
