Other=Dungeon Dice Monsters - Dark Magician (Arkana) - Character

OCG Rulings

Tributing "Skilled Dark Magician" with three Spell Counters on it is a cost to activate its effect which Special Summons "Dark Magician".: Effect Monster > Skilled Dark Magician

You cannot activate the effect of "Skilled Dark Magician" or "Skilled White Magician" if you have no "Dark Magician" or "Buster Blader" in your hand/Deck/Graveyard.: Can the effect of "Skilled Dark Magician" be activated when there is no "Dark Magician" in your hand etc?

"Bottomless Trap Hole" only destroys and removes from play the monster(s) whose Summon(s) provided the correct timing for "Bottomless Trap Hole" to be activated.: If "Bottomless Trap Hole" is activated when multiple monsters are Special Summoned simultaneously, then are all monsters destroyed and removed from play?
Example: "Monster Reborn" is activated and targets "Dark Magician" (2500 ATK). "Birthright" is chained and targets "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" (3000 ATK). "Birthright" resolves first and Special Summons "Blue-Eyes White Dragon", and then "Dark Magician" is Special Summoned as Chain Link 1. If "Bottomless Trap Hole" is activated, then only "Dark Magician" is destroyed and removed from play because its Summon allowed "Bottomless Trap Hole

Previously Official Rulings

Mentions in Other Rulings

A Hero Emerges: You can Special Summon a high-level monster, like "Dark Magician", with "A Hero Emerges". But if your opponent selects a Special Summon-only monster like "Dark Necrofear", or a Spirit Monster, it is sent to the Graveyard.

Big Bang Shot: If you equip your "Big Bang Shot" to your opponent's "Dark Magician", and "Dark Magician" attacks your "Giant Soldier of Stone", the opponent of the owner of the "Big Bang Shot" takes the damage (so your opponent, who attacked with "Dark Magician", takes 900 points of damage.)

Chthonian Alliance: The monster equipped with this card does not count towards the bonus. So if you have 2 “Dark Magicians” on the field, and 1 is equipped with “Chthonian Alliance”, it has +800 ATK.

Contract with the Abyss: "Contract with the Abyss" is used as a generic substitute for Ritual Spell Cards like "Black Illusion Ritual" and "Contract with the Dark Master". You cannot use "Contract with the Abyss" to Ritual Summon a non-Ritual Monster like "Dark Magician".

Cyber Blader: Example 1: The opponent controls “Gemini Elf” and “Dark Magician”. The opponent attacks with their “Dark Magician”, attacking “Cyber Blader”, whose ATK is currently doubled. The opponent activates “Mystik Wok” and Tributes their “Gemini Elf” to gain 1900 Life Points. “Cyber Blader” now has 2100 ATK points, so it does not destroy “Dark Magician”, but since the opponent has only 1 monster now, “Cyber Blader” is not destroyed as a result of battle, either.

Dark Magic Attack: If you activate "Dark Magic Attack", and the "Dark Magician" is removed from the field with "Interdimensional Matter Transporter" or "Compulsory Evacuation Device", or flipped face-down with "Book of Moon", or destroyed by "Ring of Destruction", "Dark Magic Attack's" effect still resolves.

Dark Magic Curtain: If you activate “Dark Magic Curtain” to Special Summon “Dark Magician” and later in the turn another effect would cause you to Special Summon a monster, you will not be able to Special Summon the monster. For example, your “Insect Queen” would not be able to Special Summon an “Insect Monster Token” during your End Phase.

Dark Magic Curtain: If you Chain “Serial Spell” to “Dark Magic Curtain”, the effect that prevents you from Normal Summoning, Flip Summoning, or Special Summoning for the remainder of the turn is still applied. When “Serial Spell” resolves it will Special Summon 1 “Dark Magician” from your Deck and it will apply the Summon-restriction, so when “Dark Magic Curtain's” effect tries to resolve its effect will disappear because you cannot Special Summon a monster.

Dedication through Light and Darkness: You can Tribute a face-down "Dark Magician" to activate "Dedication through Light and Darkness".

Double Attack: If you use “Cost Down” so that your “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” in your hand is Level 6, then you cannot discard it to activate “Double Attack” and target your Level 7 “Dark Magician” on the field.

Metalsilver Armor: If you attack with "Dark Magician", and you control another monster equipped with "Metalsilver Armor", your opponent cannot activate "Magic Cylinder" because "Magic Cylinder" targets and only the monster equipped with "Metalsilver Armor" can be targeted (and it is not attacking).

Pole Position: If you control "Dark Magician" and your opponent controls "Blue-Eyes White Dragon", and you activate "Flint" targeting "Blue-Eyes White Dragon", and your opponent chains "Pole Position", then "Flint" is equipped meaninglessly to "Blue-Eyes White Dragon". If "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" is destroyed, "Flint" can be equipped to "Dark Magician" meaninglessly if you choose (even if other monsters are on the field).

Reasoning: You can Special Summon a high-level monster like "Dark Magician" with "Reasoning", but not Special Summon-only monsters like "Gate Guardian", Ritual Monsters, etc.

Serial Spell: If you activate "Monster Reborn", and chain "Serial Spell", discarding your entire hand, you can select and revive one of the monsters you discarded for the cost of "Serial Spell" to be the monster that "Serial Spell" Special Summons to the field. (For example, if you target "Dark Magician" with "Monster Reborn", then chain "Serial Spell" and discard "Buster Blader", you can use "Serial Spell" to Special Summon the "Buster Blader" you discarded to activate "Serial Spell".)

Skilled Dark Magician: This monster's effect does NOT target and you select the monster when you resolve the effect, so if you Tribute it to Special Summon "Dark Magician" from your Graveyard and your opponent chains "Disappear" and removes that "Dark Magician", you can Special Summon a different "Dark Magician" from your hand/Deck/Graveyard instead.

Skilled Dark Magician: If there are no "Dark Magician" in your hand, Deck, and Graveyard, you cannot activate "Skilled Dark Magician's" effect that Special Summons "Dark Magician".

Skilled Dark Magician: If a player controls the opponent's "Skilled Dark Magician" and Tribute it with 3 Spell Counters, the player who controlled and Tributed the "Skilled Dark Magician" is the player who Special Summons "Dark Magician" from the hand, Deck, or Graveyard.

Thousand Knives: The required card only needs to be face-up on the field. It does not need to be a Monster Card, so if "Dark Magician" is equipped to your "Relinquished", you can activate "Thousand Knives".

Thunder Nyan Nyan: "Thunder Nyan Nyan" can be destroyed by her own effect between steps in a chain. For example, the opponent targets your "Thunder Nyan Nyan" with "Snatch Steal". You chain "Call of the Haunted" to Special Summon "Dark Magician" from your Graveyard, a DARK monster. The chain resolves as follows: "Call of the Haunted" resolves, "Thunder Nyan Nyan" is destroyed because there is a DARK monster on the field, "Snatch Steal"’s effect disappears because the target is no longer on the field.
