TCG Rulings

  • If the monster targeted by “Ebon Arrow” destroys a monster with equal ATK (so both are destroyed), the opponent still takes damage based on their destroyed monster’s DEF.[1]
  • If a monster is targeted by 2 “Ebon Arrow” effects, it loses 1000 ATK, and both effects that inflict damage based on DEF will activate (they form a chain). However, the battle damage inflicted to the opponent still only happens once.[1]
  • If control of the monster switches to the opponent and it battles, it is your opponent who will take damage from the effect of “Ebon Arrow”.[1]

OCG Rulings

  • When the targeted monster battles, if both monsters are destroyed by battle, then "Ebon Arrow" still inflicts damage to your opponent equal to the other monster's DEF.[4]
