To detach ( () (のぞ) Torinozoku) refers to a method of sending an Xyz Material attached to an Xyz Monster to the Graveyard.

When an Xyz Material is detached, it is not treated as leaving the field, since Xyz Materials are not treated as being on the field; as such, the effects of monsters like "Sangan" and the conditions of monsters like "Plaguespreader Zombie" are not applied.

However, a detached Xyz Material is treated as being sent to the Graveyard, so effects of monsters such as "Heraldic Beast Leo", "Dandylion" and "Needle Sunfish" will activate when detached. In addition, Xyz Materials are not treated as any particular card type, so are unaffected by cards such as "Dimensional Fissure" and "Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Bear" when detached.
