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.

  • Attack is pretty decent for a Level 5 monster.
  • It can manipulate the cards that you will draw in your Draw Phase.
  • Your monsters are protected from Spell Cards.
  • You can use The Warrior Returning Alive to get it from your graveyard.


  • Defense is not that high for a Level 5 monster which makes it an easy target if switched to defense position.
  • It can only protect face up DARK monster(s) from Spell Cards.
  • Spell Cards that doesn't target are not negated. E.g. Wonder Balloons
  • Cannot be special summoned.

Tips, related cards, skills

Exchange of Night and Day

A continuous trap card that you can use once per turn. This helps with getting specific card(s) in your deck, mostly if you use a deck that contains both Light and Dark attribute monsters.

The Warrior Returning Alive

This can be used to bring Freed back to your hand. Best used together with other Warrior-type monsters so you have more options, instead of becoming a possible dead card if you can't use it.

Is it a bug or work as intended ? I tried to summon this guy (either before of after) my Relinquished equip with the opponent's target monster, the equipped monster always negated.

Yes this is a bug, or Relinquished can't be used in the same deck with this card

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)
doesnt negate Order to Charge

Edgar, I only saw 1 statement made by you which is the below one: "You're flat out wrong. Unless the opponent monster used for Order to Charge is Dark, it's going to get tributed and then your monster destroyed." This statement was in response to CodeT statement. CodeT first 2 sentences are wrong. CodeT next 2 sentence are right. Continue...

Your first response sentence is wrong because not everything CodeT said was flat out wrong. Only half of what he said was wrong. Your second response sentence is right. However, I could be nit picky and find errors in it for the giggles! However, I'm just teasing. No hard feelings.

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)
huge ass
Stupid dark freed. Cant b special summoned. Enter the code left right otc
what a good eck to build with this card?

The only downside of this card and it's a huge one is that it can not be special summoned..
On the plus side. A tribute for a 2300 attacker with a neat effect is decent.
However I would keep this card out of my deck, but thats just me.
I would put 1 of this card in every Gravekeeper or any Soul Exchange deck. No OTC, no EC. You can dodge Mirror Wall, Only Etaqua or a bigger tread works on him. Beats HHG by himself.
