Card Trivia

 Like many other Frog and Toad monsters, this card's Japanese name is a pun. This card's name is a pun of 生きかえる (Ikikaeru) or to return to life.
This is the second monster to have its name treated as Des Frog, the first being Dupe Frog. Both monsters have the same Attribute, Type, Level, ATK and DEF, as well as the highest DEF of all Level 2 monsters.
In Feudal Japan, a ronin was a samurai who currently had no liege, usually because its original one had died without an heir.
The leaf on this monster's head is similar to the leaf on certain types of Baki in the game Drawn to Life.
This monster also bears a strong resemblance to Gamabunta, the chief toad from the Naruto and Naruto Shippuden series.


TCG Rulings

Removing a "Frog" monster from play is a cost.: The Shining Darkness Sneak Peek -- Card Rulings (Version 1.0)

"This card cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster" is a condition, not an effect. It also applies in your hand, so you can't use "Ronintoadin" as a Synchro Material Monster with "Eccentric Boy" either.

OCG Rulings

The text "This card cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster." of "Ronintoadin" is not treated as an effect of an Effect Monster.: Effect Monster > Ronintoadin

Removing from play one "Frog" monster from your Graveyard is a cost to activate the effect of "Ronintoadin" which Special Summons it.
