Pros

  • Special summonable monster from either hand or graveyard.
  • Can be summoned multiple times from the graveyard, as long as you have 1000 LP and a beast monster is destroyed by card effects.

Cons

  • Costs 1000 LP to special summon using its ability.
  • 1800 defense, which isn't very low but not difficult to get over.
  • Requires your monster to be destroyed from card effect outside of damage step, and it needs to be a beast-type monster.

Tips, related cards, skills

Uniflora, Mystical Beast of the Forest

Good for summoning beast monsters regardless of level or attribute, but can't attack the turn it's summoned. Mostly effective in beast decks only.

Playful Possum

Triggers Green Baboon's condition for special summoning, and can help with tribute summoning other monsters.

Obedience Schooled

Tricky to use, but it can help with summoning the Baboons or other tribute monsters, as well as thinning your deck. Some of the summonable monsters have effects that can activate in the graveyard as well.

This thing must be bugged, because literally nothing causes this effect to trigger for me.

It's possible to trigger baboon's condition with e-con or order to charge??

It's possible to trigger baboon's condition with e-con or order to charge?? -- No. Neither of them work. The reason being, both OTC and e-con's effect consider it as a "tribute" your monster and not "destroy" your monster.

I was planning to have a generation shift in my deck in order to trigger its effect sorta as a single tribute plus you get the monster back but it doesnt seem to trigger his effect. Is this a bug? I am using it on a beast during my standby phase and the trap card clearly indicates it destroys a beast and you can draw a copy from your deck

one of the trickier yugioh rulings; because green baboon has 'when a beast type monster is destroyed' in it's card text it's effect cannot be activated in reponse to 'generation shift'. because generation shift goes Destroy -> add card the last action after the card resolves isn't a beast type being destroyed, but the adding of the card, thus green baboon misses the timing and can't be summoned

Can you combo this with assault on GHQ?

The biggest problem with this is that I haven't seen that many destruction effects that would trigger it, given that it won't trigger from battles.

If you have this card, a low-level beast, Garlandolf and his ritual spell in your hand...

I tried to use gandora to summon green baboon, but it didn't work. Tried again to make sure and yeah, not working. This is a bug right?

it isn't a bug. you're gonna have to read the card effects carefully.

Gandora banishes the cards instead and for Baboon's effect to trigger they have to be sent to the graveyard. Hope that was clarifying enough.

can you use thunder crash on a beast monster of yours to summon this baboon??

I agree, i dobt even thibk this should be UR, not when they're tribute monster which can be special summoned much easier.

Actually he is good on the IA. On PVP he can be. You just have to be good with your deck.

I think a deck with 1 copy of this and some good beasts like des kangaroo and possum can be great with a some good staple cards to back it up.

Playful Possum and this card.

What's good is that you can destroy you own monster using a trap card and summon in the battle phase. I am assuming this is a quick affect

1000LP is too much maybe to be worth
