The "Abyss Actor" monsters are based on different kinds of performing artists. In the anime, the "Abyss Actors" change their appearances when used with "Abyss Script" cards, such as "Abyss Actor - Superstar", which dons a new costume, fitting to it performing the role of the "Abyss Script", such as being a wizard when used with "Abyss Script - Fantasy Magic" and a knight when used with "Abyss Script - Abode of the Fire Dragon".
The "Abyss Actor" monsters tend to follow a pattern of "Abyss Actor" followed by an adjective (excluding "Abyss Actor - Extras") and then the performing art role that the "Abyss Actor" is based off of.
"Abyss Script" Spell Cards also have secondary effects triggered when they are destroyed by your opponent's card effects, but you can also force this by giving a face-down "Absorbing Jar" to your opponent and attacking it, or using the first effect of "Artifact Durendal".
