Dimension Gate

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.

If I use this card to banish one of my Fortune Ladies, when the fortune lady returns to the field will it still have the same level it did when it left the field?
(Example: FL Past gets banished at LVL 4, does it come back at 4 or it's original LVL 1?)

Same here, i'm not very good with cards such as interdimentional matter, Ninjas etc... dunno it just feels weird getting rid of your own monsters for a while lol.

But that's just me... I've seen some really cool combos with Ninja 2.0
Very weird card if you ask me....... lolz
I used dimension gate and took control of his monster, which was dark of magician of chaos and it allowed me to bainish it and the card stayed, but didn’t give me it back when I i used dimension gate, it is broken.

That's working as intended. Dark Magician of Chaos banishes itself when it leaves the field. (So rather than Dimension Gate banishing it, it banishes itself since it's leaving the field. And since Dimension Gate didn't banish anything, it can't Special Summon anything.)
Remember folks, if your fusion monster isn't properly summoned (aka not by polymerization), it won't come back to field.

Dark Paladin cannot be Special Summoned except by a Fusion Summon
help i dueled mark level 50 and tried to steal his RA but when i banished the monster using dimension gate it didnt come back when i activated the second effect and i lost any idea why ???

Because The Winged Dragon of Ra can't be Special Summoned and Dimension Gate Special Summons the banished monster?

Not that it matters much, it would come back at 0 ATK/DEF anyway.
Good for BLS-SS maybe
Only have 1 copy. Through the card trader though!

Hrm? Card trader? Am I missing something? Well I already have 3 copies, but it was at the cost of around 2000 green gate keys.

it was there when paradox events happened
So now AI immedietly attacks directly to force you to activate its second effect...?
Why doesn't this card work with doc? It makes no sense? Why if I'm gett8ng attacked and use it then they declare a direct attack it doesn't trigger? The card is broken or bugged

Thanks for your answer. That means if a DD Warrior is on the field, she will attack to force you using your Dimension Gate ? I'm glad I farmed everything too...

Uhm you just repeated what anon 1 and 3 said.
It's not a quick effect, in case you mean you want to disrupt your opponent during their turn
We're actually talking about tournament not just in game PVP.
'there's no' + 'can't be' + 'without' got me confused as ...
