Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist

Lists

Toon Monsters are a special breed of monsters that debuted in Spell Ruler. They are retrained monsters that are able to attack the opponent directly. As the name suggests, most of the monsters in this archetype are comical, cartoonish versions of their original selves. In the manga and anime, they are the signature monsters of Maximillion Pegasus. There are three classes of "Toon Monsters". These are Class A, B and C (more information below). They are favored by players because of their fast Summon strategies and powerful direct attacks.

Strengths

  • As mentioned above, the basic strategy of a Toon Deck is direct attacks on your opponent. However, all the cards within this classification require you to be in control of "Toon World" on the field. "Toon Table of Contents" can aid you in adding this card to your hand.
  • Since most Toon Monsters can be Special Summoned from the hand by their own effect if "Toon World" is present on the field, you can Summon more than one Toon in a turn. Although Toon Monsters Level 5 and above require Tributes for their Special Summon, as the Tributes are not Tributes for a Tribute Summon, you can Tribute Token Monsters generated from cards like "Scapegoat" and "Fires of Doomsday".
  • Swarming for fast Tuning, since a lot of the Toon Monsters can be Special Summoned when "Toon World" is on the field you can create a big swarm of monsters and Summon a Tuner monster for a fast Synchro Summon

Weaknesses

  • It is also possible to chain a "Emergency Provisions" to your "Toon World", and, in this way, you can "evade" the destruction of your Toon Monsters. However, since "Toon World" is now no longer on the field, Class C Toons lose their direct attack effects.
  • "Forbidden Chalice" can also be used to negate the effect of a Toon Monster, so it will not be destroyed when "Toon World" is destroyed, and it can also negate the Summoning Conditions of Toons, so they can attack during the turn they are Summoned. However, Toons will also lose their direct attack effects.
  • "Book of Moon" can be used to flip a Toon Monster face-down and thus saving it from destruction when "Toon World" is destroyed; however, it will need to wait an additional turn to commence an attack.
  • "Vengeful Bog Spirit" can be very useful in a Toon Deck, because, while it will not impair your Toons much (since they cannot attack when they are Summoned anyway), it will impair your opponent greatly.
  • "Creature Swap" is also very good in a Toon Deck, because your opponent will be forced to attack your Toon Monsters, if you swap a Toon.
  • It is not easy to keep the Toons long enough on the for their Direct attack effect to take effect. "Gravity Bind" is always a good card to stall as it gives your monsters time to 'warm-up' so to speak. But as the Toons are all Level 4 or above "Gravity Bind" may not work as it prevents them from attacking. "Nightmare's Steelcage" may be more useful as it gives you the time to activate your Toon's effect and "Nightmare's Steelcage" leaves the field two Turn's later enabling you to play their Direct attack effect.

The Three Classes

Class A

  • If your opponent does control a Toon Monster, it must select the "Toon Monster" as the Attack Target when attacking.

Class A Toons: "Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon", "Toon Summoned Skull", "Manga Ryu-Ran", "Toon Mermaid"

You can use "Soul Exchange" as a Tribute since you can't attack with them in the turn they are Summoned, or Special Summon a "Toon Mermaid" and Tribute her for a stronger Toon Monster. Since it's not a Tribute Summon, you can also make use of Tokens from cards like "Scapegoat" and "Fires of Doomsday".

Class B

  • If "Toon World" is destroyed, it is also destroyed.
  • CAN attack on the turn it is Summoned unlike Class A and C Toons.

Class B Toons: "Toon Dark Magician Girl"

Class C

  • CAN be Summoned/Set when there's no "Toon World" on the field unlike Class A and B Toons.

Class C Toons: "Toon Cannon Soldier", "Toon Gemini Elf", "Toon Goblin Attack Force", "Toon Masked Sorcerer".
