An Effect (Japanese: 効果Kōka), also known as Card Effect (カードの効果Kādo no Kōka), is any effect in the game introduced by a specific card, excluding the conditions and costs of that card. Card effects include monster, Spell and Trap effects.
In the anime (both original Japanese and dubbed), card effects are often called "special abilities" (Japanese: 特殊能力Tokushu Nōryoku). In the manga, they are referred to as both "effects" and "special abilities"; they are also very rarely referred to as "powers".
Jaden Yuki for the first season referred to his Elemental Hero's abilities as "Super Powers".
