The Rule of 3000 ATK and DEF is a general unwritten rule stating that in order for a monster to have an original ATK or DEF of over 3000, it either must have negative effects to limit its playability, or otherwise have special conditions for being Summoned. This rule is similar to the "Level 4 ATK and DEF Rules".

3000 ATK or more

"Super Conductor Tyranno", a monster that breaks the rule by having over 3000 original ATK and being Normal Summonable with no drawback.

In general, monsters with up to 3000 ATK may be Normal Summoned with neither any special conditions nor any negative effects, such as the iconic "Blue-Eyes White Dragon". Many such monsters even have beneficial effects. However, monsters with greater than 3000 ATK should either possess negative effects in order to remain Normal Summonable, such as "Arcana Force XXI - The World" or "Ultimate Obedient Fiend", or must have Summoning conditions that prevent them from being Normal Summoned. All Extra Deck monsters fall into the latter category.

"Super Conductor Tyranno", "Thunder King, the Lightningstrike Kaiju" and "Jizukiru, the Star Destroying Kaiju" are currently the only known exceptions to this rule. There are currently 187 monsters with over 3000 ATK.
