TCG Rulings

Mentions in Other Rulings

Drill Warrior:" Special Summoning “Drill Warrior” and adding 1 Monster Card to your hand do not happen at the same time. You Special Summon, then add the Monster Card to your hand. “Bottomless Trap Hole” cannot be activated.

Drill Warrior:" If you activate the effect of "Drill Warrior" when Summoned and your opponent chains "Bottomless Trap Hole" you will not be able to resolve either effect as "Drill Warrior" will not be able to be removed from play by its own effect as it has already been removed from play by "Bottomless Trap Hole". You will not be able to discard a card.: Drill Warrior vs. Bottomless Trap Hole - Question and Answer

Ido the Supreme Magical Force:" The effect of “Ido the Supreme Magical Force” that Summons it in the Standby Phase, and its effect that destroys all other monsters, happen simultaneously. Therefore, you can activate “Torrential Tribute” or “Bottomless Trap Hole” when it Summons itself, as you have not missed the timing.

Trojan Gladiator Beast: “Bottomless Trap Hole” cannot be used in response to “Trojan Gladiator Beast” as it misses the timing, since the last thing that happened was that the player drew a card.

ZERO-MAX: The effect of "ZERO-MAX" Special Summons your "Infernity" monster then destroys monsters. Your opponent cannot use "Bottomless Trap Hole" or "Torrential Tribute

Judge Program Forum Rulings

{{RulingFlagged">TCGJudgeProgram =
Bottomless Trap Hole" does not negate a Summon. It destroy{{Spanremoves from play the monsters after it has already been successfully Summoned.: Dodger Dragon

As long as you are properly chaining cards with appropriate Spell Speeds, you can activate as many cards that respond to the Summon/Attack in the chain responding to those actions.
Cards like "Bottomless Trap Hole" or "Sakuretsu Armor" do not have to be Chain Link 1 in order for them to be activated. You can technically activate 3 copies of "Bottomless Trap Hole" during the same Chain, even as Chain links 5, 6, and 9.: On responding to last event multiple times: Appropriate chains

Dodger Dragon: Since "Bottomless Trap Hole" is not a Counter Trap Card, the effect of "Dodger Dragon" will not prevent your opponent from activating "Bottomless Trap Hole".

Gateway of the Six: "Bottomless Trap Hole" does not prevent "Gateway of the Six" from gaining the 2 "Bushido Counters". The effect of "Bottomless Trap Hole" does not negate{{Spanremoves the monster from play after the monster has already been successfully Summoned. All "Gateway of the Six" needs in order to place the "Bushido Counters" on it, is for the monster to be successfully Summoned.: Gateway of the six and bushido counter

Genex Ally Crusher: Player A (the turn player) controls a face-up "Genex Ally Crusher" and Player B controls a face-down "Bottomless Trap Hole". Player A Normal Summons "Breaker the Magical Warrior". Since after a successful Summon all Trigger Effects must be activated first before players can respond with other card effects to the Summon, Player B will not be able to activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" until Player A has the chance to activate the Trigger effect of "Genex Ally Crusher". There are two Trigger effects being activated at this moment, "Breaker the Magical Warrior" and "Genex Ally Crusher".
Chain link 1: "Breaker the Magical Warrior" (Mandatory Trigger effect that will place the counter on itself)
Chain link 2: "Genex Ally Crusher" (Optional Trigger effect)
Chain link 3: "Bottomless Trap Hole": Genex Ally Crusher

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.

OCG Rulings

"Bottomless Trap Hole" only destroys and banishes 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 banished?
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 banished because its Summon allowed "Bottomless Trap Hole to be activated.

If "Bottomless Trap Hole" is activated when multiple monsters are Special Summoned simultaneously, then all Summoned monsters with 1500+ ATK are destroyed.
Example: Two copies of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" are Special Summoned by "Dimension Fusion". If "Bottomless Trap Hole" is activated, then both copies of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" are destroyed.

The effect of "Bottomless Trap Hole" does not target. Thus, if "Lord of D." is on the field, then you can still activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" when a Dragon-Type monster with 1500+ ATK is Normal Summoned/Flip Summoned/Special Summoned, and the Dragon-Type monster will be banished normally.: Does the effect of "Bottomless Trap Hole" target the Normal Summoned/Flip Summoned/Special Summoned monsters?

On Timing and Missing the Timing

Drill Warrior: "Drill Warrior" is Special Summoned during the Standby Phase, and afterwards you add a card to your hand. The two are not treated as resolving simultaneously. Thus, "Bottomless Trap Hole" cannot be activated; you miss the timing since you add a card to your hand after "Drill Warrior" is Special Summoned.: Are the "Special Summon" and "add to your hand" effects of "Drill Warrior" treated as being resolved at the same time?

Drill Warrior: When resolving the effect of a banished "Drill Warrior" which Special Summons it, you can Special Summon "Drill Warrior" even if there are no monsters in your Graveyard. However, after Special Summoning "Drill Warrior" you cannot resolve the effect which adds a card from your Graveyard to your hand, so cards like "Bottomless Trap Hole" may be activated.: When resolving "Drill Warrior", if there are no monsters in the Graveyard, then can you not Special Summon it?

Give and Take: The "Special Summon 1 monster" and "Increase the Level of 1 monster you control" effects of "Give and Take" are considered to resolve simultaneously. When you activate "Give and Take", after it resolves, your opponent can respond with "Bottomless Trap Hole".: When the player Special Summons a monster to the opponent's field with "Give and Take", can his opponent activate "Bottomless Trap Hole"?

Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World: When "Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World" is discarded by an opponent's card effect, its effect Special Summons it and then proceeds to destroy cards, so "Bottomless Trap Hole" cannot be activated. Also, if there are no cards on the opponent's field to destroy, then the effect finishes resolving with "Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World" being Summoned, so "Bottomless Trap Hole" can be activated.: Can "Bottomless Trap Hole" be activated when "Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World" is Special Summoned?

Ido the Supreme Magical Force: Destroying monsters and Special Summoning "Ido the Supreme Magical Force" are considered to occur simultaneously. You can respond to the Special Summon with "Bottomless Trap Hole" or "Torrential Tribute".: When "Ido the Supreme Magical Force" is Special Summoned and destroys monsters, can you activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" without missing the timing?

Relieve Monster: If "Relieve Monster" resolves and Special Summons a monster, then "Torrential Tribute" or "Bottomless Trap Hole" can be activated at this time. The Replay occurs after resolving those effects.: Can something like "Torrential Tribute" be activated if "Relieve Monster" Special Summon a monster?

Telekinetic Power Well: With "Telekinetic Power Well", you Special Summon the monsters, and then you take damage. Because of this, you cannot activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" etc, since you miss the timing.: When "Telekinetic Power Well" Special Summons a monster and you take damage, after it resolves is it treated as both occurring simultaneously?

Trojan Gladiator Beast: With "Trojan Gladiator Beast", you Special Summon the "Gladiator Beast" monster, and then you draw 1 card. You do not do the two simultaneously. Because of this, "Bottomless Trap Hole" cannot be activated in response to the Special Summon.: Can "Bottomless Trap Hole" be activated when a monster is Special Summoned by the effect of "Trojan Gladiator Beast"?

Mentions in Other Rulings

Chaos Hunter: When you Normal or Special Summon "Chaos Hunter", the effect "Your opponent cannot banish cards." is applied, so the opponent cannot activate "Bottomless Trap Hole".: Can your opponent activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" when you Summon "Chaos Hunter"?

Imperial Iron Wall: If "Imperial Iron Wall" is active, cards/effects that destroy and banish cards (such as "Bottomless Trap Hole") cannot be activated. If "Imperial Iron Wall" is chained to such an effect, then the affected card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, but is not banished.: When "Imperial Iron Wall" is active, how do effects which destroy and banish cards resolve?

Relieve Monster: If "Bottomless Trap Hole" is used against the monster Special Summoned by "Relieve Monster", the replay occurs after "Bottomless Trap Hole" resolves.: When a monster is Summoned with "Relieve Monster", can cards like "Torrential Tribute" be activated?

Starlight Road: When multiple monsters Summoned simultaneously and "Bottomless Trap Hole" is activated, if two or more of those monsters have 1500+ ATK, then "Bottomless Trap Hole" would destroy two or more monsters on the field, so "Starlight Road" may be Chained. However, if only one of those monsters has 1500+ ATK, then "Bottomless Trap Hole" would only destroy one monster, so "Starlight Road" cannot be activated.: If "Bottomless Trap Hole" is activated when multiple monsters are Special Summoned, then can "Starlight Road" be Chained?

The Wicked Avatar: When "The Wicked Avatar" is Tribute Summoned, its effect begins a chain. You can chain "Bottomless Trap Hole" or "Torrential Tribute" to this effect.: When "The Wicked Avatar" is Summoned, can "Bottomless Trap Hole" or "Torrential Tribute" be activated?

On Destroying and Banishing

Malefic Truth Dragon: You can Special Summon "Malefic Truth Dragon" if a "Malefic" monster like "Malefic Blue-Eyes White Dragon" is destroyed and banished by an effect like that of "Bottomless Trap Hole".: Can "Malefic Truth Dragon" be Special Summoned if "Malefic Blue-Eyes White Dragon" is destroyed and banished?

Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode: If "Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode" etc is destroyed and banished by "Bottomless Trap Hole" etc, then you can activate the effect that Special Summons "Red Dragon Archfiend" etc.: Can "Red Dragon Archfiend" etc be Special Summoned when "Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode" is destroyed and banished?

Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys: When "Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys" is destroyed by a card effect, its effect to Special Summon itself during your next Standby Phase activates in the Graveyard. If "Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys" is not in the Graveyard at this time, then its effect does not activate. If "Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys" is destroyed and (then) banished by "Bottomless Trap Hole" (or "D.D. Crow"), then "Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys

Previously Official Rulings

This card can remove from play multiple monsters at once, if they are Summoned simultaneously. Since this card can affect multiple monsters, it does not target.

If the opponent has "
Lord of D." on the field and activates "The Flute of Summoning Dragon" to Special Summon 2 copies of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon", you can activate this card and both will be removed from play. "Lord of D." does not protect the Dragons because "Bottomless Trap Hole" does not target. The same situation would occur if only 1 "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" was Special Summoned, "Bottomless Trap Hole" still does not target.

This card can only be activated when the last thing that resolved in the Duel was the opponent Normal/Flip/Special Summoning a monster(s). It cannot be activated at any other time.

If "Cyber Jar" is flipped during a Main Phase, and the opponent Special Summons "Dark Blade", "Luster Dragon", "Magical Scientist" and a face-down monster, you can activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" and both "Luster Dragon" and "Dark Blade" will be removed from play. The "Magical Scientist", face-down monster, and all monsters you Summoned will remain on the field.

If "Cyber Jar" is flipped as a result of being attacked, you cannot activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" because it cannot be activated during the Damage Step.

If the opponent Summons a monster, then you activate "Bottomless Trap Hole", and the opponent chains "Book of Moon" to flip the Summoned monster face-down, it is not removed from play by the effect of "Bottomless Trap Hole".

Use the current ATK at time of Summoning to determine if you can activate "Bottomless Trap Hole". So if the opponent Tribute Summons "Enraged Muka Muka" with 1 card in their hand, you can activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" (since its ATK is 1600).

You cannot activate this card after "Jinzo" is Summoned.

You can activate this card after a monster was Special Summoned by the effect of another card, such as "Monster Reborn".

If the opponent activates "Monster Reborn" and then chains "Call of the Haunted" (so that 2 monsters are Summoned in the same chain), and then you activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" after that chain resolves only the monster Summoned by chain link 1 ("Monster Reborn") is removed from play.

Only the monster(s) that triggered "Bottomless Trap Hole" by being Normal / Flip / Special Summoned can be destroyed & removed from play by "Bottomless Trap Hole's" effect. Example: Player A Normal Summons "Dark Blade", and Player B activates "Bottomless Trap Hole" in response (Chain Link 1), then Player A chains the effect of his face-up "Ultimate Offering" to Tribute "Dark Blade" for "Summoned Skull" (Chain Link 2). "Ultimate Offering's" effect resolves first, and "Dark Blade" is Tributed for "Summoned Skull". Then the effect of "Bottomless Trap Hole" disappears because the monster it would have applied to is no longer on the field.

So the opponent cannot activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" the timing is no longer correct

Imperial Iron Wall: While "Imperial Iron Wall" is active, optional effects that would remove card(s) from play cannot be activated, so the effect of "Bottomless Trap Hole" cannot be activated.

Imperial Iron Wall: Cards like "Bottomless Trap Hole" cannot be activated while "Imperial Iron Wall" is active. If you activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" and "Imperial Iron Wall" is chained, the destroyed monster is sent to the Graveyard instead of being removed from play

Magical Dimension:" If you Summon a monster like "Skilled Dark Magician" and the opponent activates "Bottomless Trap Hole", you can chain "Magical Dimension" to Tribute "Skilled Dark Magician" and Special Summon another Spellcaster from your hand. This new monster will NOT be destroyed by "Bottomless Trap Hole".

Valkyrion the Magna Warrior:" The opponent can activate "Bottomless Trap Hole" and "Beta the Magnet Warrior" and "Gamma the Magnet Warrior" will be destroyed.

D.D. Survivor: If "D.D. Survivor's" effect is activated in the End Phase, and it is removed from play again (by "Bottomless Trap Hole", or "Torrential Tribute" while "Dimensional Fissure" is in play, etc.), its effect will activate during the next turn's End Phase.The latest errata of "D.D. Survivor" states that it can only activate its effect during the turn it was banished, making this ruling "invalid".

Uria, Lord of Searing Flames:" When a player Special Summons "Uria, Lord of Searing Flames" and activates its effect to destroy a Set Spell or Trap Card, no Spell or Trap card can be chained, including "Bottomless Trap Hole"This is no longer correct due to the removal of Ignition Effect priority. Ignition Effects cannot be activated in the Summon response window.

Judge List Rulings

Zombie Master: "Zombie Master's" effect is a Spell Speed 1 effect, so you can't chain it to a Spell Speed 2 effect like "Book of Moon", "Bottomless Trap Hole", "Torrential Tribute", "Compulsory Evacuation Device", etc.: Clarification on Zombie Master-effect negated?

Monarchs: "Monarch's" effects activate at the time they are successfully Tribute Summoned. Their effects are Spell Speed 1. If the opponent wants to activate a card like "Bottomless Trap Hole", it will be placed onto the Chain with the "Monarch's" effect. But "Monarchs" don't need to remain on the field to resolve their effects, so destroying them with "Bottomless Trap Hole" will not negate their effect.: Bottomless Trap Hole Vs. Monarchs
