"Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" will gain the name and effect as normal, and its Original ATK will be treated as the removed monster's Original ATK.: When "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" obtains and activates the effect of "Phantom of Chaos", does the ATK change?

When "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" or "Phantom of Chaos" has its name changed to "Junk Synchron", you can only use it as a Synchro Material Monster for "Junk Warrior" if it becomes a Tuner monster with "Lightwave Tuning".: When "Lightwave Tuning" is applied to "Phantom of Chaos" when it is treated as "Junk Synchron", can it be a Synchro Material Monster?

While you control "Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu"/"Earthbound Immortal Aslla piscu"/etc, you can activate the effect of "Phantom of Chaos"/"Neo-Spacian Dark Panther"/etc and target a "Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu". After the effect of "Phantom of Chaos"/etc resolves, it is destroyed.: While "Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu" is on the field, can the name of "Phantom of Chaos" be changed to "Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu" by its effect?

If "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" copies a Gemini Monster, then "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" is not treated as a Gemini Monster, even though it has the effect of one. Thus, you cannot equip "Supervise" to a "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" which has the effect of a Gemini Monster.: Can "Supervise" be equipped to a "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" which has obtained the effect of a Gemini Monster?

The effects of "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" or "Phantom of Chaos" are only applied as long as "Phantom of Chaos" or "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" are face-up on the field. When the monster is removed from the field, then it no longer has the copied effects. If a monster like "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" copies "Sangan" or "D.D. Scout Plane", then you cannot activate the effect of "Sangan" which activates in the Graveyard or the effect of "D.D. Scout Plane" which activates in the place to where cards are removed from play.: If "Phantom of Chaos" obtains an effect which activates in the Graveyard or the place to where cards are removed from play, then can the effect be activated?

The text "This card cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster, except for the Synchro Summon of a Dragon-Type Synchro Monster. The other Synchro Material Monster(s) cannot be Level 4." of "Debris Dragon" is not treated as an effect, so if "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" or "Phantom of Chaos" copies "Debris Dragon", then you do not apply this text.

If "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" gains the effect of "Victory Viper XX03", destroys a monster by battle, and Special Summons an "Option Token", then during the End Phase when the card's name turns from "Victory Viper XX03" back into "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" there is now no "Victory Viper XX03" on the field, so the "Option Token" which was Special Summoned disappears.: If "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" gains the effect of "Victory Viper XX03", then does the "Option Token" disappear during the End Phase?

For the effect of a monster like "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" or "Phantom of Chaos" or "Hundred Eyes Dragon" or "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste", you choose the time during the End Phase that you stop applying the effect.

If "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" is flipped face-down after using its effect, the effect is no longer applied. You could flip it face-up and activate its effect again in the same turn.

When you use this card's effect to copy another monster's name, its name is not considered to be "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" for the duration of the effect. If you targeted "Cyber Dragon" then activate "Next to be Lost" you would send a "Cyber Dragon" from your Deck to the Graveyard and not "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther".

If "Skill Drain" is activated after "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther's" effect has resolved, the effects that the "Dark Panther" copied will be negated, but it will still keep the copied card name until the end of the turn.

You can target "D.D. Warrior Lady" and if "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" battles with an opponent's monster you can use the copied effect and remove both monsters from play, because "D.D. Warrior Lady's" effect activates on the field.

You can target "Exiled Force" and then Tribute "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" to destroy 1 monster on the field.

If you target "Spirit Reaper", the "Spirit Reaper" will be destroyed after "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther's" effect resolves.

You can target a Union Monster and equip "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" to an appropriate monster, but at the end of the turn the copied effect disappears and "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" will be destroyed.

If you target "Strike Ninja" you can remove from play "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" with the copied effect, but then it will no longer be face-up on the field, so the copied effect disappears and "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" remains removed from play.

If you target "Cyber Harpie Lady", "Harpie Lady 1", etc., then "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther's" name will just be "Harpie Lady" for the duration of its effect.

If you target "Proto-Cyber Dragon", "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther's" name will be treated as "Cyber Dragon" because of the copied effect.

If you target a monster with an effect that accumulates Spell Counters, such as "Skilled Dark Magician", any Spell Counters on "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" will be removed when its effect ends.

You can target your opponent's "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" but the copied effect is the same as the one you just used, so you cannot activate it a second time that turn.

If you target an "LV" monster, you could Tribute the "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" to activate the Spell Card "Level Up!". It will be in the Graveyard when "Level Up!" resolves, so it will no longer have the copied effect, so there is no monster name to reference and therefore the effect disappears.

If you copy an Ignition or Trigger Effect, those effects can be chained to when they are activated, as normal.
