Tributed cards do not need to end up in the Graveyard to still be considered Tributed.

Tribute

Japanese

リリース (formerly () (にえ) (ささ) げる)

English

Tribute
Formerly: offer as a Tribute or offer as Tributes
Noun: Tribute (Monster)

Tribute, called Release (Japanese: リリース Rirīsu) in the OCG and the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's and Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime series (previously called Sacrifice ( () (にえ) (ささ) げる Ikenie ni Sasageru) in the OCG and the Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime series, and offer as a Tribute in the TCG).

Tributing is an action that sends a monster(s) the player controls to the Graveyard.

Monsters are Tributed in two ways:

Unless a card specifically states that you can Tribute monsters in your hand or under your opponent's control, such as "Gishki Aquamirror" and "Reptilianne Vaskii", you can only Tribute monsters you control (on the field).

While normally only monsters can be Tributed, some cards, such as "True Draco" cards and "Kiryu", can Tribute Spell and Trap Cards.

Tributed cards do not need to end up in the Graveyard to still be considered Tributed. For example, Tributed cards banished by the effect of "Macro Cosmos" will still be considered to be Tributed, so the cost of cards such as "Horn of Heaven" can still be paid while "Macro Cosmos" is active.
