What is a Fusion Monster in Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel?

A Fusion Monster is a Monster card with the Fusion tag. Monsters that are Fusion Monsters, just like Synchro, Link and XYZ Monsters, are stored in your Extra Deck. This means that you won’t put them into your Main Deck or draw them during your Draw Phase. These monsters can then only be summoned from the Extra Deck by activating the effect of the monster, spell or trap card that allows you to conduct a Fusion Summon.

How to Fusion Summon in Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel

In order to summon a Fusion Monster, you must use the materials listed on the card, alongside a card that allows you to Fusion Summon a monster such as Polymerization. Typically, fusion cards like Polymerization require these cards to be present on your side of the field or in your hand.

However, there are fusion cards that allow you to use monsters from other areas. For example, Cynet Fusion allows you to banish 1 Cyberse Link Monster from your Graveyard as Fusion Material if you control no monsters in the Extra Monster Zone. Additionally, some monster effects allow you to use them as part of a Fusion Summon without the need for a fusion card such as Polymerization. Predaplant Chlamydosundew and D/D Swirl Slime are each monsters whose effects allow them to initiate a Fusion Summon using them as one material for the Fusion Summon without the need for a fusion card.
