Tribute Summon

A Tribute Summon (Japanese: アドバンス(しょう)(かん) Adobansu Shōkan "Advance Summon") is a form of Normal Summoning a Level 5 or higher monster by Tributing another monster(s) you control. Level 5 and 6 monsters require one Tribute, while Level 7 and higher require two Tributes.

Tributing a monster for a Tribute Summon is part of a Summoning procedure. Therefore, if the Tribute Summon is negated, the Tributed monster(s) will not return to the field.

Some cards require 3 Tributes to be Normal Summoned, such as "The Wicked Avatar". Other monsters can be Tribute Summoned with varying numbers of monsters, such as "Moisture Creature".

Some cards allow high-Level monsters to be Normal Summoned with fewer or no Tributes. "Fog King" can be Tribute Summoned with 1 Tribute, or "Normal Summoned" without a Tribute. "Mausoleum of the Emperor" allows either player to pay Life Points instead of Tributing monsters. However, if no monster is Tributed to perform the Normal Summon (as is always the case when using "Mausoleum of the Emperor"), the Summon is not a Tribute Summon.

The "Monarch" monsters focus on Tribute Summons.
