Dimension Gate
TypeTrap Card
Card Effect TypeCard effect / Trigger-like Effect


Activate this card by targeting 1 monster you control; banish that target face-up. When an opponent's monster declares a direct attack: You can send this face-up card on the field to the Graveyard. If this card is sent to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon the monster banished by this card's effect.

How to get / Rarity

  • Banishing your monster will protect it from getting destroyed, or targeted by your opponent.
  • Special summoning monsters will enable certain effects that trigger when monsters are special summoned.
  • Special summoning the monster will allow you to summon them in either attack or defense position instead of previous position.


  • Your monster can only be special summoned when the card is sent to the graveyard, through its effect activation, or if it's destroyed and sent to the graveyard.
  • This card can be cancelled if it's destroyed before banishing your monster. Like if your opponent (or you) chains their Twister to this card's activation.

Tips, related cards, skills

Escape from the Dark Dimension

Monster banished by Dimension Gate can also be special summon using this card, and once destroyed you can special summon it again by Dimension Gate's effect.

Enemy Controller

Take control of your opponent's monster and remove it from play with dimension gate, giving you permanent control of the monster when it returns to the field.


Use Storm to destroy your opponent's spell/trap along with this card, then special summon your removed from play monster.

Lab Builder deck

This card is a popular choice to add into Lab builder farming decks, as your opponent will not attack you directly with monsters that have 3000 or lower attack when you remove Labyrinth Wall with this card. Allowing you to stall as much as you want.

WTF I used Dimension Gate on my BEUD and then destroyed the Gate, but BEUD didn't come back onto the field! I lost to Kaiba cos of this crap!
Is this a bug?

In order to use Dimension Gate for BEUD, it must've first been fusion summoned through Polymerization. If it was not, Dimension Gate will not bring it back.
Only have 1 copy. Through the card trader though!
Remember folks, if your fusion monster isn't properly summoned (aka not by polymerization), it won't come back to field.

Doesn't work...
i used dimension gate on my monster then used escape from a dark dimension he killed my monster and i couldn't summon him again...

could have won of the combo actualy worked :$
Is this card compulsory for handless gaia?
I can't pull this card for the life of me. It's getting annoying. Only card I've pulled is labrenth wall TWICE. I get 8000 pts every time and usually just get gold..
almost 7 million points, got at least 1 copy of all cards except for Dimension Gate... so frustating
Any decks that I can make with 3 copies of this card?

I faced someone in duel who used this trap along with Enemy controller to perma-steal my lev 7 monster.

- used e-con, sac'd their monster, pulled mine to their side.
- then triggered dim-gate, sent the monster away
- then used a storm to destroy the dim-gate, once they got the monster back from banishment, it was theirs permanent.

Yep, we faced that combo a lot during the WC2017.

This is actually wrong as it's not how it's stated in the rule. E-con description says "take control until the End Phase", which means no matter where the card travelled, its control should return to its original owner after the EP, anytime it returns and is controlled

i use my Crimson Ninja to get the monster back to my side... to get the ninja on the field i can use the ninjutsu to sacrefice and spawn as many ninjas as possible... Dice Typhoon works too but its possible to deal yourself 1000 damage BUT with luck you destroy the Dimension Gate + another enemie trap/spell card...
