| Power |
A creature's power determines how well the creature will battle other creatures.
When creatures battle, the one with the higher power destroys the other one. In a tie of equal power, they both destroy each other.
Some creatures have plus signs (+) next to their power numbers. The plus sign is a reminder on creatures that sometimes get extra power from special abilities such as "Power Attacker."
Some other creatures have minus signs (-) next to their power numbers. The minus sign is to show that when a certain effect is triggered that the creatures sometimes lose power. When a creature has its power reduced to 0 due to an effect or a card ability, it is destroyed. This is a gaming rule and is not a card effect so it does not trigger effects such as Ken Geki, Absolute Ruler ~Final Flare~'s extra win condition.
Unlike in most trading card games, power is not a creature's hit points or attack points (There are no hit points in this game and attack points are replaced by "Breaker" Abilities.) and has no relations to what a creature can do, as well as having no use other than battling other creatures. Therefore, a creature that has it's power infinitely increased and has no other effects is almost just as good as a Vanilla or Quasi-Vanilla creature. Additionally, Removal in Duel Masters is highly powerful so the power of creatures becomes a minor factor when it comes to deciding the usability of a creature.
Note that power is also not a decisive factor of a creature being removed as spells and weaker creatures can remove much stronger creatures from the battle zone via their effects.
- A creature with 10000 base power is only introduced 14 years into the lifespan of Duel Masters.
