You can discard 1 WATER monster to Special Summon this card from your hand. When this card is Summoned, you can select and send 1 Level 2 or lower Aqua-Type WATER monster from your Deck or your side of the field to the Graveyard. Once per turn, you can return 1 monster you control to your hand to Normal Summon 1 "Frog" monster, except "Swap Frog" or "Frog the Jam", in addition to your Normal Summon or Set this turn.

How to Get

  • Allows you to send 1 Level 2 or lower aqua-type WATER monster from your Field or Deck to the Graveyard, when this card was Summoned.
  • You can discard 1 WATER monster to Special Summon this card.
  • You can return 1 “‘Frog” monster you control, back to your Hand, in order for you to Normal Summon 1 “Frog” monster (except "Swap Frog" or "Frog the Jam"), in addition to your Normal Summon/Set for that turn.


  • Weak ATK and DEF stats.


  • You can use Swap Frog’s effect to Special Summon itself and then return it to your Hand, as long as you have WATER monsters to discard.
  • You can use Salvage to recover WATER monsters with 1500 ATK or lower, which you have discarded previously, to your Hand.


You can use Swap Frog to send Treeborn Frog to the Graveyard, then when Treeborn Frog was Special Summoned to your Field on your Next standby Phase, you can return Treeborn Frog to Normal Summon another Frog monster from your Hand, on top of your Normal Summon/Set. T.A.D.P.O.L.E. can be sent to the Graveyard to set up for Des Frogs’ Special Summons.


This Field Spell greatly boosts all your Level 2 or lower Aqua-type/ WATER monsters’ ATK by 1200, which will empower your entire Field of “Frog” monsters.

Paleozoic Archetype

Since Paleozoic monsters are also regarded as Level 2 Aqua-type monsters when they were Special Summoned from the Graveyard, you can use them as beaters as they gain the ATK boost from Wetlands, as well as immune to monster effects.




ActionsDiscards for cost / Sends from your Deck to your Graveyard / Sends from your field to your Graveyard / Returns from field to hand for cost
Summoning categoriesSpecial Summons itself from your hand / Allows multiple Normal Summons


I might use the next UR dream ticket that we get, on another one of these.

If I'm not wrong, it was duel links ace the one who uploaded the obelisk + frog deck.
why swap frog wont trigger atlantean cards effect when i discard with this frog?

It's not discarded by an effect, but by Swap Frog's special summoning condition, and summoning condition is not treated as an effect.

This is different than Abyssmegalo, whose discard and summon is an effect that requires manual activation.

I've seen the frog in an Obelisk deck :o
use with by order of the emperor and water monsters to draw cards until you run out of water monsters. this is because you can repeatedly special summon him

Frog the jam op

The latest text doesn't exclude Frog the Jam since there is no longer a card called Frog the Jam.

I like when the card texts refer to a card that no longer exists, lol. Dramatic Rescue, Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon, Red-Eyes Spirit, etc. make me smile for some reason.

At least this card already has an errata'd reprint.

Look at Goblin Pothole Squad. Not only Dark Trap Hole has been renamed, but also, Goblin Pothole Squad hasn't been reprinted yet to reflect this.

As a result, in DL and real life it still reference a card that literally doesn't exist lmao
