  • Can be used on your monster to negate negative effects.


  • Can negate a useful effect.
  • Opponent gains 400 attack when you negate their effect.


Negate set monsters

When the set monster you attack is flipped face-up you can activate Forbidden Chalice to negate it's effect.

Negate negative effects

Negate your monster's negative effect, so you can use them to their full potential.

  • Negate the effect of Flash Assailant to turn him into a 2400 attack monster plus the 400 boost from Forbidden Chalice.
  • Turn toggle to on so you can activate Forbidden Chalice on The Unfriendly Amazon before she destroys herself during your standby phase.

Il bud

Use Forbidden Chalice on Il Blud just before he is destroyed so that you can keep the monsters you revived with his effect.


Use Forbidden Chalice on Toon monster to protect them just before Toon World is destroyed.

Delg, the Dark Monarch

Use Forbidden Chalice on Delg the Dark Monarch so that he can attack the turn he was summoned.

Blue Flame Swordsman

After giving away much of his attack, use Forbidden Chalice on Blue Flame Swordsman will replenish his attack.


Anki can attack directly using its effect, but it will only deal half of his attack. This can be "negated" by using Forbidden Chalice during damage step so that it will deal 3200 damage directly. But it is best not to battle a monster with Anki with Forbidden Chalice because he will not get his search effect.




Hot New Top
Pretty much mandatory if facing sylvans with no protection.
Why isn't possible to chain a trap in response to this card activation at damage step?

I think only atk/def changing traps or countertrap could be chained in such a situation.

How about Gandora and Monstermorph: Evolution with Mokuba (with Red-Eyes ofc) ?
The combo forbidden chalice + super rush headlong will never work on horus lv 8. He can negate both cards since they are quick spells
Combos great with Zombyra the Dark.
What is she drinking?

water wouldnt be 'forbidden', the setting looks something like garden of eden stuff, and she is in the clouds with a roman cathedral in the distance and a tree next to her.

Most likely that Chalice belongs to a god capable of taking away and giving powers, she stole it, hid next to the tree, and is now drinking it.

Cum lmao
what a waste, fck u
Nephthys player gonna have a hard time with this card
I don't get why this card is that good... Ultimate Providence / Divine Wrath need a discard, but they can replace Forbidden Chalice, especially because the targeted monster is destroyed! In a 20 card deck, I don't see any need of this one.

I was wrong I used it for horus lv4 when he used lv up

Would this even activate against Horus level 8?
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
Nope because once lvl 8 Horus is out on the field, this card will be negated.
So can this card reverse the effects of cards like Wall of Disruption for one turn?

monster effects. something like gearfried, or gemini
Everybody is talking about Gandora here. But what about Spirits + Chalice to keep them on the field?!
<< Anonymous(Ulle)

If you are playing spirits you might want to keep the stronger ones on the field, which takes alot of resources to summon out in the first place. Spirits gain benefit if they return to hand using Shinobird Power Spot, and we rarely see people play spirits anyways.
This can be used for countering d.d warrior and mirage dragon...
