A Continuous-like Effect is an unofficial term used to refer to the effect of a Spell/Trap Card on the field that is continuously "applied" while that Spell/Trap Card remains face-up on the field. Just like the Continuous Effects of monsters, these effects do not start a Chain (although the activation of their Spell/Trap Card does) and sometimes need to meet extra conditions in order to be applied. These effects are commonly associated with Continuous Spell Cards and Continuous Trap Cards, as well as Equip Cards.

Similar to how Continuous Effects are only applied if their corresponding monsters were Summoned successfully (i.e. their Summon wasn't negated), the Continuous-like Effects of Spell/Trap Cards are only applied if the activation of the card resolves successfully without being negated.
