Cannot be Special Summoned. Negate any Spell effects that target a face-up DARK monster(s) you control and if you do, destroy that Spell Card. During your Draw Phase, instead of conducting your normal draw: You can add 1 Level 4 DARK monster from your Deck to your hand. This card must be face-up on the field to activate and to resolve this effect.
It is not a bug. The monster equipped to relinquished is considered an equip SPELL. Relinquished is Dark. Freed negates and destroys and spells targeting dark monsters. Including equip spells(which target)
To clear the confusion about this I will explain directly to the point, can Dark general Freed negate Order To Charge? no.
Why? because Order To Charge doesn't target on the initial destruction, the only time OTC targets is when you pay the cost by "selecting" one of your normal monsters as a tribute to "destroy 1 monster on the field".
OTC is NOT specifically targeting a monster on the field.
Choosing the monster to tribute is in no way a cost.
If you plan on using Freed the Matchless General, think about using this before. Unless you plan to use Feast of the Wild, this card is superior to Freed in every way (by having a wide protection effect and a wider searching ability)
