Break
ブレイク (Bureiku)
Japanese Wiki: 638

Break is a keyword action.

Details

It is the act of putting one of your opponents shields into his hand when one of your creatures in the battle zone attacks your opponent and isn't blocked.

If there is no creature with the Blocker keyword to stop the attack, one of your opponent's shields is broken. That means you get to choose one of those shields and your opponent puts it into his/her hand (unless an effect like Bolmeteus Steel Dragon's says otherwise). It also enables the opponent to use cards with the Shield Trigger ability, so attacking recklessly may cause ambush and reversal.

Break is referenced on Breaker abilities signifying how many shields a creature with the ability will break when they attack your opponent, as well as to trigger the conditions of Turbo Rush.

Rulings

From the Duel Masters - General Game Rules: Version 1.9 (August 9th, 2018)

  • 701.14. Break
    • 701.14a To break a shield is to put it into its owner's hand. Break can be caused by attacking with a creature or by other effects.
    • 701.14b Putting a shield into its owner's hand is not always caused by breaking shields.

      Example: A creature with the ability to break a single shield adds another ability When returning the shield to your hand, it is not a break, so it will not break an additional.

    • 701.14c When multiple shields are broken by an effect, they are moved into their owners' hands at the same time. This is different from breaking shields due to a Breaker ability.
    • 701.14d The effect of breaking the shield is also effective for a break by attack. It also affects both.
