"Rank-Up-Magic" (RUM(ランクアップマジック) Rankuappumajikku) is an archetype of Spell Cards introduced in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime. Their effects allow one to Rank-Up an Xyz Monster. An Xyz Monster with a Rank higher than the target is Special Summoned from the Extra Deck, and the targeted Xyz Monster and its Xyz Materials become Xyz Materials on the newly Summoned monster. This process is called "Chaos Xyz Evolution" (when performed with Rank-Up-Magic cards associated with the power of Chaos) or "Rank-Up Xyz Evolution" (when performed with other methods).


The Rank-Up Spells were first introduced in the anime by Girag, who used "Rank-Up-Magic Barian's Force" to brainwash residents of Heartland in order to take the "Numbers" from Yuma, Astral and Shark. Each time it would be used to Rank-Up Xyz monsters into "CXyz" monsters in order to overpower the "Numbers".

Mizar used it next when he himself ranked up his "Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon" in order to form its Chaos form. This monster wasn't fully revealed as the Sphere Field collapsed from its power.

Alito and Girag both ranked up their respective "Number 10X" monsters. Both of them were defeated by Yuma and Astral (Girag was also defeated by Vector posing as Ray).

Yuma gained his own Rank-Up spell in the form of "Rank-Up-Magic Limited Barian's Force" during his Duel with Girag from "Ray" but was later transformed into "Rank-Up-Magic Numeron Force" by ZEXAL II.

Vector also demonstrated his mastery of Rank-Up Spells when he used "Rank-Up-Magic Barian's Force" on his "Number 10X" monster, and also to brainwash Brook Walker.

When Yuma went to the Astral World looking for Astral, he Dueled against Eliphas who used "Rank-Up-Magic Astral Force" in his Duel against Yuma, the first appearance of "Rank-Up-Xyz Evolution".

Vetrix and Quinton researched the Barian World and managed to create "Rank-Up-Magic Argent Chaos Force". Due to it being reverse engineered from the Barian cards, its effect is weaker, only Ranking Up the monster and doing nothing else. Quattro, Trey and Quinton would go on to use this card against the Seven Barian Emperors".

When Shark became Nash once again he augmented the Barian Emperors with the Spell Card "Rank-Up-Magic - The Seventh One" which worked specifically for their "Number 10X" monsters and was used by all the Emperors except Vector. They still retained the original "Barian's Force" when Alito used it to summon "Number C80: Requiem in Berserk.

Vector gained a new "Rank-Up-Magic" card during his Duel against Nash in Episode 137, "Rank-Up-Magic Admiration of the Thousands".

During the same duel Nash also gained a new "Rank-Up-Magic" card in the form of "Rank-Up-Magic Quick Chaos", becoming the first Quick-Play Spell Card in that set.

Astral's final Duel against Yuma revealed he possesses three "Rank-Up-Magic" cards, "Double-Rank-Up-Magic Utopia Force", "Rank-Up-Magic Dark Force" and "Hyper-Rank-Up-Magic Ultimate Force".

In the ZEXAL manga, Yuma obtained "Rank-Up-Magic - Shining Force" during his second Duel against Kaito.

In the ARC-V anime, Shay Obsidian was revealed to possess many "Rank-Up-Magic" Cards: two cards in his Duel against Sora Perse, "Rank-Up-Magic Raptor's Force" and "Rank-Up-Magic Revolution Force". In his Turbo Duel against Dennis Macfield, he revealed a third; "Rank-Up-Magic Raid Force".In his second Turbo Duel against Dennis Macfield, he revealed a fourth; "Rank-Up-Magic Doom Double Force" and a fifth; "Rank-Up-Magic Soul Shave Force". In his Turbo Duel against Crow, he revealed a sixth: "Rank-Up-Magic Skip Force".

"Rank-Up-Magic" cards are implied to not exist in the Standard Dimension, as Dipper O'rion has stated that LID doesn't instruct people in their use.

In the Japanese version of the anime, when a Duelist declares the activation of a "Rank-Up-Magic" card, they do not say the phrase "I activate the Spell Card..." However, if the card is not a Normal Spell Card, they declare the card's property.
