Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist


The Moths are a series of Insect-Type EARTH monsters. Each is an evolution of "Petit Moth", that is summoned by waiting a number of turns that "Petit Moth" is equipped with "Cocoon of Evolution". "Scary Moth" is false moth monster because its japanese name has モ-ス in it instead of モス

The Moths were used in the anime and manga by Weevil Underwood.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses, the moths can also be Summoned by evolving "Kattapillar" with "Cocoon of Evolution". Two addtional stages are also added; "Larva of Moth" and "Pupa of Moth"

Summoning and weakness

Only 1 "Moth" monster can be Normal Summoned, "Petit Moth". The other "Moth" monsters can only be Special Summoned by tributing "Petit Moth" some turns after "Petit Moth" has been equipped with "Cocoon of Evolution".

This is a difficult process, as the opponent is given plenty of time to destroy "Petit Moth", before a strong evolution can be Summoned and protecting it is considered difficult and wasteful of cards. It is also difficult to get "Petit Moth" into face-up Defense Position before equipping it with "Cocoon of Evolution", while playing it in Attack Position will result in it having 0 ATK.
