Trivia


TCG Rulings


Mentions in Other Rulings

Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste: If you copy the effect of "Stardust Dragon" and then Tribute this card to activate that effect, you cannot Special Summon this card back from the Graveyard during the End Phase.

Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste: If you copy the effect of "Majestic Star Dragon", then when you return "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste" to the Extra Deck during your End Phase, you will also Special Summon "Stardust Dragon" from the Graveyard.

Majestic Star Dragon: The effect to return "Majestic Star Dragon" to the Extra Deck is mandatory. It activates even if an effect that prohibits Special Summons is applied. In that case, you return "Majestic Star Dragon" to the Extra Deck" but will not Special Summon "Stardust Dragon".

Majestic Star Dragon: The effect to Special Summon "Stardust Dragon" targets the "Stardust Dragon". It activates even if there is no "Stardust Dragon" in the Graveyard.

Majestic Star Dragon: You can use "Stardust Dragon" as a Synchro Material Monster for "Majestic Star Dragon" even if it's being treated as a Tuner.

Majestic Star Dragon: You can Summon "Majestic Star Dragon" even if "Majestic Dragon" is being treated as a non-Tuner and "Stardust Dragon" is treated as a Tuner.

Stardust Xiaolong: If you have more than one "Stardust Xiaolong" in your Graveyard when you Synchro Summon "Stardust Dragon", you can activate the effects of each of them.

Starlight Road: If you negate an effect with “Starlight Road” but cannot destroy the card, you cannot Special Summon “Stardust Dragon.”

Starlight Road: If you Chain “Starlight Road” to “Heavy Storm” while you control 2 or more Spell or Trap Cards and Special Summon “Stardust Dragon” you cannot activate “Torrential Tribute” afterwards. Even though the effect of “Heavy Storm” is negated, the activation was not, so the card will still resolve without effect and you will miss the timing to activate “Torrential Tribute.”

Starlight Road: You cannot activate “Starlight Road” during the Damage Step.

Starlight Road: Negating and destroying a card and Special Summoning “Stardust Dragon” do not happen at the same time. First you negate and destroy the card, then you Special Summon “Stardust Dragon.” If you don’t Special Summon, the effect of “Starlight Road” ends after negating and destroying the card.

Starlight Road: Special Summoning “Stardust Dragon” with “Starlight Road” is not a Synchro Summon. If that “Stardust Dragon” is later sent to the Graveyard, it cannot be Special Summoned by its own effect or “Call of the Haunted.”

Synchro Magnet: If you Synchro Summon "Stardust Dragon" while you have Synchro Magnet in your hand and "Stardust Xiaolong" in your Graveyard, you can Special Summon both of them.

Wicked Rebirth: If you Special Summon “Stardust Dragon” with “Wicked Rebirth,” you can Tribute “Stardust Dragon” for its effect. After it is Tributed, “Stardust Dragon” is no longer targeted by “Wicked Rebirth.” Therefore its effect is restored and applied normally (so it negates an effect and is Special Summoned back to the field during the End Phase).

ZERO-MAX: You cannot negate "ZERO-MAX" with "Stardust Dragon

Judge Program Forum Rulings

{{RulingFlagged">TCGJudgeProgram =
If "
Divine Wrath" is chained to the "During either player's turn, when a card or effect is activated that would destroy a card(s) on the field: You can Tribute this card; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy it." effect of "Stardust Dragon" and negates it, then "Stardust Dragon" will not be able to activate its effect to Special Summon itself during the End Phase.: Divine Wrath vs. Stardust Dragon

You cannot activate the effect of "Stardust Dragon" to negate the effect of "Snipe Hunter" as "Snipe Hunter" is not guaranteed to destroy a card at activation.: Stardust Dragon vs Snipe Hunter

The effect of "Stardust Dragon" can be activated in response to the activation of "Gemini Spark".: Gemini Spark vs. Stardust Dragon

The effect of "Stardust Dragondescruction effect must be chained directly to the effect that it is trying to negate. This means that if two trigger effects are triggered simultaneously and are both placed on the Chain"Startdust Dragon" will only be able to activate and negate in response to the effect in Chain link 2.: Stardust Dragon vs Secutor

Out of Date

Starlight Road: You can respond to the Summon of "Stardust Dragon" from "Starlight Road" with "Bottomless Trap Hole".
Example: If "Starlight Road" is Chained to the activation of "Heavy Storm", then "Heavy Storm" is Chain Link 1 and "Starlight Road" is Chain Link 2. When "Starlight Road" resolves, it will negate the activation of "Heavy Storm" and destroy it (at the same time, due to the “and if you do” conjunction), then it will Summon "Stardust Dragon". At this time, the activation of "Heavy Storm" has been negated, so the chain ends. The last thing to happen is the Summon of "Stardust Dragon", so players may respond to that summon with any legal card, including "Bottomless Trap Hole".: Starlight Road and Bottomless Trap Hole"Starlight Road"s newest errata states that it does not negate the activation of the card or effect it was Chained to, which makes this ruling invalid.

On the Effect which Negates Activations

Tributing this card is a cost to activate the effect. The effect does not target.: Synchro Monster > Stardust Dragon You can activate the effect during the Damage Step.: Can the effect of "Stardust Dragon" negate the effect of "Ally of Justice Catastor"?
Example: If the effect of "Ally of Justice Catastor" activates during the Damage Step, then the effect of "Stardust Dragon" may be Chained to negate the activation of "Ally of Justice Catastor"s effect and destroy it: Can you use the effect of "Stardust Dragon" to negate the effect of "Ally of Justice Catastor" and destroy it?, even if that "Stardust Dragon" is the monster battling "Ally of Justice Catastor".

To activate "Stardust Dragon"s effect against another effect, the other effect must destroy a card when it resolves. You cannot activate "Stardust Dragon"s effect when "Night Assailant" is sent from the hand to the Graveyard, since it does not destroy card(s) (even though "Night Assailant"s Flip Effect destroys a card).: When a card can destroy other cards, and you activate a different effect of the card which does not destroy other cards, can you chain "Stardust Dragon"s effect?

"Stardust Dragon"s effect can be chained to an effect that does more than destroy cards. You can chain "Stardust Dragon"s effect to "Ring of Destruction", even though it also inflicts damage.: Can you chain "Stardust Dragon"s effect to cards which both destroy a card and also do something else?

You can chain "Stardust Dragon"s effect to the effect of a Continuous Spell or Trap with a chainable effect that destroys cards, such as "Skull Lair".: Can "Stardust Dragon" negate the effect of a face-up Continuous Spell/Trap Card?

You cannot chain "Stardust Dragon"s effect to effects like "Barrel Dragon", "Blowback Dragon", "Blind Destruction", "Sand Gambler", "Dangerous Machine Type-6", "Snipe Hunter", "Gambler of Legend", etc., since it is not known if they will destroy a card or not, depending upon the coin toss or the die's result. In addition, for an effect like "Time Wizard" which is certain that it will destroy a monster on the field regardless of the coin toss's, etc., result, "Stardust Dragon" can be chained. Furthermore, for an effect like "Crush Card Virus", "Deck Devastation Virus", etc., when a face-up monster would be destroyed, you can chain "Stardust Dragon" effect. If the only monsters on the field are face-down monsters, since it is unsure if they will be destroyed by "Crush Card Virus's", "Deck Devastation Virus's", etc. effect, you cannot chain "Stardust Dragon" effect.: Can you chain "Stardust Dragon"s effect to a card which may or may not destroy a card?

If "Stardust Dragon" Special Summons itself during the End Phase, and your opponent activates "Torrential Tribute", then you can activate "Stardust Dragon"s effect to negate "Torrential Tribute". "Stardust Dragon" will then Special Summon itself again during the same End Phase.: Can "Stardust Dragon"s effect be activated multiple times during the same End Phase?

Counter Trap Cards are Spell Speed 3, so you cannot activate the Spell Speed 2 effect of "Stardust Dragon" in Chain to the effect of a Counter Trap Card like "Magic Jammer", "Seven Tools of the Bandit", or "Divine Wrath".: Can the effect of "Stardust Dragon" be activated in Chain to the activation of a Counter Trap Card?

Suppose that the effect of "Stardust Dragon" is Chained to "Mystical Space Typhoon", and then "Emergency Provisions" is activated at Chain Link 3 by sending "Mystical Space Typhoon" to the Graveyard. In this case, "Stardust Dragon" cannot destroy "Mystical Space Typhoon", but "Stardust Dragon" still negates its activation, and you can still Special Summon "Stardust Dragon" from your Graveyard during the End Phase.: If the effect of "Stardust Dragon" cannot destroy the card, then can it Special Summon itself?

Negating Specific Cards

Ally of Justice Catastor: "Listed above, in the main section"

Ambitious Gofer: The effect of "Ambitious Gofer" may or may not destroy a monster at resolution, so the effect of "Stardust Dragon" cannot be Chained to it.: Can you Chain the effect of "Stardust Dragon" to the effect of "Ambitious Gofer"?

Deck Devastation Virus: "See above; listed above under "Crush Card Virus"."

Eradicator Epidemic Virus: "See above; listed above under "Crush Card Virus"."

Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8: The effect of "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" is not considered to destroy Spell Cards on the field. Therefore, its activation cannot be negated by the effect of "Stardust Dragon".: If a Spell Card is activated from the hand, and the effect of "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" is activated in a chain to negate its activation and destroy it, can the effect of "Stardust Dragon" be activated in a chain to negate the activation of the effect of "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8"? Also, if a Set Spell Card on the field is activated, and the effect of "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" is activated, can its activation be negated by "Stardust Dragon" effect?

Royal Oppression: If "Royal Oppression" is Chained to "Monster Reborn", then you can then Chain the effect of "Stardust Dragon". During the End Phase, you can Special Summon "Stardust Dragon" from the Graveyard.: Can the effect of "Stardust Dragon" be Chained to the effect of "Royal Oppression"?

Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter: If you activate the effect of "Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter" and choose to not destroy a card, then the effect of "Stardust Dragon" cannot be Chained to it.: If the effect of "Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter" does not destroy a card, then can you Chain the effect of "Stardust Dragon" to it?

Versus Specific Cards

Royal Oppression: When the effect of "Stardust Dragon" which negates the activation of the effect of a Spell Card/Trap Card/Effect Monster Card is activated, the effect of "Royal Oppression" cannot be activated. To negate the effect of "Stardust Dragon" which Special Summons itself, you must activate the effect of "Royal Oppression" in Chain to that effect of "Stardust Dragon" during the End Phase.: Can "Royal Oppression" negate the different effects of "Stardust Dragon"?

Skill Drain: "Skill Drain" has no effect on "Stardust Dragon". For the first effect, Tributing "Stardust Dragon" is a cost, so "Stardust Dragon" is not on the field and is unaffected by "Skill Drain". The second effect activates in the Graveyard, so "Skill Drain" cannot negate it.: Will "Skill Drain" negate the effects of "Stardust Dragon"?

Wicked Rebirth: After "Stardust Dragon" is Special Summoned by "Wicked Rebirth", "Stardust Dragon" can activate its effect. Then, "Wicked Rebirth" is no longer face-up on the field and "Stardust Dragon" is no longer targeted by it, so the effect of "Stardust Dragon" will not be negated and "Stardust Dragon" will negate the activation of an effect and destroy the card.: Is the effect of a "Stardust Dragon" Special Summoned by "Wicked Rebirth" negated if it is not face-up on the field at the resolution of its effect?

On the Effect which Special Summons

Skill Drain" has no effect on "Stardust Dragon". For the first effect, Tributing "Stardust Dragon" is a cost, so "Stardust Dragon" is not on the field and is unaffected by "Skill Drain". The second effect activates in the Graveyard, so "Skill Drain" cannot negate it.: Will "Skill Drain" negate the effects of "Stardust Dragon"?

If "Stardust Dragon" Special Summons itself during the End Phase, and your opponent activates "Torrential Tribute", then you can activate "Stardust Dragon"s effect to negate "Torrential Tribute". "Stardust Dragon" will then Special Summon itself again during the same End Phase.: Can "Stardust Dragon"s effect be activated multiple times during the same End Phase?

If "Banisher of the Light"s effect is active and you Tribute "Stardust Dragon", or if "D.D. Crow" removes "Stardust Dragon" from play after it is Tributed, then "Stardust Dragon" will not Special Summon itself during the End Phase. This applies even if "Stardust Dragon" is later returned to the Graveyard.: If "Stardust Dragon" is Tributed and removed from play, does its effect activate?

If "Stardust Dragon" or "Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode" do not negate the effect of a Spell/Trap/Effect monster, during the End Phase they cannot Special Summon themselves. For example, if "Divine Wrath" negates the effect of "Stardust Dragon" or "Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode", then you cannot activate the effect during the End Phase.: When "Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode" does not negate the activation of the effect of a card, can it Special Summon itself during the End Phase?

If "Stardust Dragon" was Special Summoned by and has its effect negated by an effect like "Descending Lost Star" or "Synchro Change", then when it Tributes itself to activate its effect, the effect will still be negated even though "Stardust Dragon" is no longer face-up on the field. Thus, the effect of "Stardust Dragon" cannot negate the activation of an effect which destroys a card on the field.: If the effect of "Stardust Dragon" is activated after it was Special Summoned by the effect of "Synchro Change", then will the effect be negated?

Mentions in Other Rulings

Assault Mode Activate: If you do not have "Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode" etc in your Deck, then you cannot activate "Assault Mode Activate" by Tributing "Stardust Dragon" etc. If an effect is Chained to "Assault Mode Activate" so that there is no "Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode" in your Deck, then "Assault Mode Activate" resolves without effect.: Can "Assault Mode Activate" be activated when you do not have the "/Assault Mode" monster in your Deck?

De-Synchro: Suppose that "Stardust Dragon" Tributes itself and then Special Summons itself back to the field during the End Phase. If it is targeted by "De-Synchro", then it returns to the Extra Deck, but you do not Special Summon the Synchro Material Monsters from your Graveyard.: Can you Special Summon the Synchro Materials if "De-Synchro" is activated on a "Stardust Dragon" that Special Summoned itself?

Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste: You can activate the effect of "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste" by selecting a Dragon-Type Synchro Monster in the opponent's Graveyard, such as an opponent's "Stardust Dragon".: Can you remove from play a monster from your opponent's Graveyard for "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste"?

Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste: Suppose "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste" gains the effect of "Stardust Dragon". If it negates the activation of "an effect which destroys a card(s) on the field" and destroys it, then during the End Phase you cannot Special Summon "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste" from the Graveyard through the effect of "Stardust Dragon".: Can "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste" be Special Summoned from the Graveyard during the End Phase if it gains the effect of "Stardust Dragon"?

Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste: "Majestic Star Dragon"s effects during the End Phase all resolve as part of the same effect. So, if "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste" gains the effect of "Majestic Star Dragon", then during the End Phase you can return "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste" to the Extra Deck to Special Summon "Stardust Dragon".: If "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste" gains the effect of "Majestic Star Dragon", then can you Special Summon "Stardust Dragon"?

Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon: If you activate the effect of "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" when it battles a "Stardust Dragon" Special Summoned by "Starlight Road", then at the end of the Battle Phase both monsters return to the field.: If "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" battles with and banishes a Token or "Embodiment of Apophis", then do they return to the field at the end of the Battle Phase?

Majestic Star Dragon: The effect of "Majestic Star Dragon" which returns it to the Extra Deck during the End Phase and Special Summons "Stardust Dragon" is mandatory, so it will activate even if "Vanity's Fiend" or "Jowgen the Spiritualist" are face-up on the field. In this case, "Majestic Star Dragon" will return itself to the Extra Deck, but "Stardust Dragon" will not be Special Summoned.: Will the effect of "Majestic Star Dragon" activate during the End Phase even if "Vanity's Fiend" is on the field?

Majestic Star Dragon: You may Synchro Summon "Majestic Star Dragon" by using a "Stardust Dragon" which is being treated as a Tuner Monster. If a non-Tuner Monster has its name treated as "Majestic Dragon" and "Stardust Dragon" is being treated as a Tuner Monster, then you may Synchro Summon "Majestic Star Dragon" by using the non-Tuner "Majestic Dragon", the Tuner "Stardust Dragon", and one other non-Tuner Monster as Synchro Material Monsters.: Can a "Stardust Dragon" being treated as a Tuner Monster be used as a Synchro Material monster for "Majestic Star Dragon"?

Majestic Star Dragon: The effect of "Majestic Star Dragon" which returns it to the Extra Deck during the End Phase targets one "Stardust Dragon" in your Graveyard.

Majestic Star Dragon: If the effect of "G.B. Hunter" is active, then during the End Phase the effect of "Majestic Star Dragon" to return itself to the Extra Deck still activates. However, "Majestic Star Dragon" cannot be returned to the Extra Deck, so when resolving the effect "Majestic Star Dragon" is not returned to the Extra Deck and "Stardust Dragon" is not Special Summoned.: Does the effect of "Majestic Star Dragon" which returns it to the Extra Deck still activate if "G.B. Hunter" is on the field?

Majestic Star Dragon: The effect of "Majestic Star Dragon" which returns it to the Extra Deck and Special Summons "Stardust Dragon" during the End Phase is a mandatory effect.

Malefic: You cannot Special Summon a Synchro Monster if it was not properly Synchro Summoned previously, such as if it was banished directly from the Extra Deck. Thus, you cannot use an effect like "D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation" or "Return from the Different Dimension" to Special Summon a "Stardust Dragon" which was banished to Special Summon "Malefic Stardust Dragon". Also, "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and "Red-Eyes B. Dragon" are Normal Summon monsters, so they may be Special Summoned even if they are banished directly from the Deck.: Can "D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation" Special Summon a "Stardust Dragon" which was banished to Summon "Malefic Stardust Dragon"?

Solemn Warning: You can Chain "Solemn Warning" to "Starlight Road" or "Macro Cosmos", even if there is no "Stardust Dragon" in the Extra Deck or no "Helios - The Primordial Sun" in the Deck.: Can you Chain "Solemn Warning" to "Starlight Road"?

Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode: The effect of "Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode" targets 1 "Stardust Dragon" in your Graveyard.

Starlight Road: The Special Summon by the effect of "Starlight Road" is not treated as a Synchro Summon. Thus, if the Special Summoned "Stardust Dragon" activates its effect and Tributes itself, then during the End Phase it cannot Special Summon itself. Likewise, the Special Summoned "Stardust Dragon" cannot be Special Summoned from the Graveyard by effects like "Call of the Haunted".: Can the "Stardust Dragon" Special Summoned by the effect of "Starlight Road" be Special Summoned from the Graveyard?

Starlight Road: Suppose "Heavy Storm" is activated while there are two or more Spell/Trap Cards on the field, and "Starlight Road" is Chained. After "Starlight Road" Special Summons "Stardust Dragon", the resolution of the negated "Heavy Storm" still occurs, so "Torrential Tribute" cannot be activated since you miss the timing.: Can cards like "Torrential Tribute" be activated when "Stardust Dragon" is Special Summoned by "Starlight Road"?

Starlight Road: The effect of "Starlight Road" which negates and destroys does not resolve at the same time as the effect which Special Summons "Stardust Dragon". "Stardust Dragon" is Special Summoned after the card is destroyed and its effect is negated. If "Stardust Dragon" cannot be Special Summoned, then the effect finishes resolving with negating the effect and destroying the card.: Are the "destroy" and "Special Summon" effects of "Starlight Road" treated as being done at the same time?

Starlight Road: "Starlight Road" may be activated even if a card like "Vanity's Fiend" is on the field, or if there is no "Stardust Dragon" in your Extra Deck. The effect of "Starlight Roadfrom the Graveyard the "Stardust Dragon" which was Tributed to activate its effect.: Can you activate "Starlight Road" while "Vanity's Fiend" is preventing you from Special Summoning?

Starlight Road: "Royal Oppression" may negate the effect of "Starlight Road", even though it is unknown at activation whether or not "Starlight Road" will Special Summon "Stardust Dragon". "Royal Oppression" may negate the effect of "Starlight Road" even if "Stardust Dragon" may not be Special Summoned, such as if "Vanity's Fiend" is on the field or if there is no "Stardust Dragon" in the Extra Deck.: Can "Royal Oppression" be Chained to "Starlight Road"?

Starlight Road: Suppose that "Elemental Hero Absolute Zero" is returned from the field to the Extra Deck and its effect activates. If you Chain "Starlight Road" to the effect, then the effect is negated and the "Elemental Hero Absolute Zero" in the Extra Deck is destroyed. Also, you can then use the effect of "Starlight Road" to Special Summon "Stardust Dragon".: Can "Starlight Road" negate the effect of "Elemental Hero Absolute Zero" and destroy it?

Starlight Road: Suppose that "Elemental Hero Absolute Zero" is sent to the Graveyard or is removed from play, and that its effect activates. "Starlight Road" can be Chained to negate the effect, but "Starlight Road" cannot destroy "Elemental Hero Absolute Zero", so afterwards you cannot Special Summon "Stardust Dragon
