Revolution is an ability word exclusive to creatures with the Revolutionary race.


The ability triggers if the player has less than the specified amount of shields and is a design counterpart to the abilities that trigger when the opponent has less than an amount of shields on Invaders.

While most creatures with Revolution have a Revolution 2 ability, certain Legend Rare Revolutionary creatures such as Dogiragon, Flaming Revolution have a Revolution 0 ability that are basically identical to the "Clutch" abilities found on previous cards, and also feature much stronger effects.

This ability had previously been seen on cards such as Gazarias Dragon and Siri, Glory Elemental.

Gou Toripragon has a Revolution 2 ability, but only has a Mega Command Dragon race.

The ability works well with cards that have a Shield Recovery ability, that return your shields to your hand.

  • Q: このクリーチャーをバトルゾーンに出したとき、自分のシールドが3つでした。何が起こりますか?
    • A: この時点では何も起こりません。革命2の能力は出たときの能力ですので、この後シールドが2つ以下になっても後から発動することはありません。一方、革命0の能力はシールドが0枚である限り常に発動する能力ですので、シールドが0枚になった瞬間から発動します。
