Lists

Toon monsters (トゥーンモンスター Tūnmonsutā) are Effect Monsters with the ability "Toon". They are cartoonized counterparts of existing monsters, capable of attacking the opponent directly. All Toon monsters belong to the "Toon" archetype (including "Manga Ryu-Ran", since its Japanese name does contain "トゥーン").

There are five classes of "Toon monsters", dubbed by fans Class A, B, C, D, and E.

Toon monsters were the first Effect Monsters with an ability to be introduced, debuting in Spell Ruler. While Flip monsters (as Flip Effect Monsters) were introduced earlier, they were not treated as having an ability until much later.

In the manga and anime, they are the signature monsters of Maximillion Pegasus.
