An Equip Spell Card, known as an Equip Magic Card (Japanese: (そう) () () (ほう) カード Sōbi Mahō Kādo) in the OCG, is a Spell Card that is a card that is equipped to a face-up monster on the field. Equip Spell Cards are a type of Equip Card; Equip Cards can also be Trap Cards or monsters that are treated as Equip Cards.

When you activate an Equip Spell Card, you must target a face-up monster on the field to equip the card to; the Equip Spell Card's effect applies to that monster as long as it is equipped. Equip Cards constantly target the monster they are equipped to; even while negated, Equip Cards remain equipped and continue to target the monster. If the equipped monster is no longer face-up on the field, or is no longer a valid target, the Equip Card is immediately destroyed. Because of this inherent rule of Equip Spell Cards, they are exempted from requiring the word "target" in their effects as part of Problem-Solving Card Text, unless they target a monster outside of the field upon activation.

Unless specified, Equip Cards can be equipped to monsters controlled by either player, and changing control of a monster does not cause control of an Equip Card to change. While the equipped monster can be the opponent's, the Equip Card's controller is the one referred to "you" in the Equip Card's card text, not the controller of the equipped monster.
