Central is a new monster type for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters card game created by LHK. These monsters are colored dark grayish blue; they are stored in the Extra Deck.
Central Monsters have Negative Levels, and, for their Summon, they require a number of monsters on the field (listed on the Central Monster's text), whose number of effects they have (combined) exactly equal the modulus of Level of that monster.
- Barrel Cannon Central Dragon: 2+ monsters with the same Type
You can Central Summon this card by using " " (1 effect), " " (2 effects) and " " (1 effect) on the field.
- Normal Monsters and non-Effect Monsters count as having 0 effects for a Central Summon.
- Monsters that give effect to other monsters count as that monster has an additional effect. For example, if " " was Summoned using " ", "Utopia" is treated as having 3 effects instead of 2.
- Gemini monsters are treated as having X effects, while X is the number of effects it gets, only when it is treated as an Effect Monster. Gemini monsters that are treated as Normal Monsters, are treated as having 0 effects for a Central Summon.
