OCG Rulings

This card's effect can activate if it is destroyed during the Damage Step.: When a face-down "Statue of the Wicked" is destroyed in the Damage Step, does its effect activate?

The text "cannot activate any Spell or Trap Cards" of "Ancient Gear Golem" means that the opponent cannot activate Quick-Play Spell Cards or Trap Cards from his hand or from face-down on the field. When "Ancient Gear Golem" attacks, your opponent may activate the effect of an "Ultimate Offering" which is already face-up on the field.

Previously Official Rulings

This card is only activated if sent from the
field to the Graveyard. There is no way to activate this card while it is Set on the field.

The effect of "Statue of the Wicked" is activated in the Graveyard, so its effect is activated even if "Jinzo" is on the field, because "Jinzo" only applies to Trap Cards and Trap Card effects on the field. Also, cards like "Seven Tools of the Bandit" cannot be used against "Statue of the Wicked".

"Statue of the Wicked" activates its effect even if it is destroyed on the same turn it was Set.

If "Banisher of the Light" is in play, then "Statue of the Wicked" does not activate its effect when destroyed, because it is not sent to the Graveyard.

"Statue of the Wicked" activates its effect even if you destroy your own "Statue of the Wicked".

You can Tribute a "Wicked Token".

Mentions in Other Rulings

Magical Hats: If "Statue of the Wicked" or "Dark Coffin" are selected and they are destroyed while face-down, their effects activate. If they are flipped by an attack and destroyed, their effects do not activate.

Ojamagic: Since a Spell Speed 1 effect cannot be chained to a Spell Speed 2 effect, and "Ojamagic" is a Normal Spell Card, if "Ojamagic" is sent to the Graveyard simultaneously with a Spell Speed 2 card that activates in the Graveyard, like "Statue of the Wicked" or "Dark Coffin", then "Ojamagic" is the first chain link, and the Trap Cards will be the second and third chain links.

Sasuke Samurai 2: While "Sasuke Samurai #2"s effect is active, you cannot activate the effects of cards that activate in the Graveyard like "Black Pendant" and "Statue of the Wicked".
