"Piercing Battle Damage" Tip Card

Japanese (base text)

貫通ダメージ

English

piercing battle damage

Piercing battle damage is battle damage dealt by a card effect to the controller of a Defense Position monster by an attacking monster. If the defending monster's DEF is lower than the attacking monster's ATK, the difference is inflicted as battle damage. It is occasionally referred to unofficially as "trample" damage, due to that term having a similar meaning in Magic: The Gathering.

Interestingly, because some Equip Spell Cards that allow monsters to inflict piercing damage deal damage to the opponent of the controller of the Equip Spell Card rather than the opponent of the controller of the monster, if a player equips a card like "Fairy Meteor Crush" to an opponent's monster and the opponent attacks the player's Defense Position monster, the opponent will take battle damage instead of the player.

Example

Player A's "Dark Driceratops" (ATK 2400) attacks Player B's Defense Position "Mystical Elf" (DEF 2000). Regardless of whether "Mystical Elf" is destroyed or not, Player B takes the difference (400 points in this case) as damage.

Text

Effects that give monsters the ability to inflict piercing battle damage have the following text:

If (???*) attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent.

Prior to Problem-Solving Card Text, the same effect would be described as:

During battle between (???*) and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent.

Also prior to Problem-Solving Card Text, on "Cyberdark Horn" from Duelist Pack: Zane Truesdale only:

This card inflicts Piercing damage.

In Japanese, it is written as:

「(???*)が (しゅ) () (ひょう) () モンスターを (こう) (げき) した () (あい) 、その (しゅ) () (りょく) (こう) (げき) (りょく) () えた (ぶん) だけ (せん) (とう) ダメージを (あた) える。」(??? ga Shubi Hyōji Monsutā wo kōgeki shita bāi, sono Shubiryoku ga koeta-bun dake Sentō Damēji wo Ataeru)

*="This card" or referring to another card
