Recovers damage received and summon a potentially strong monster


Only works if you take a direct attack while your LP is higher than the attack and when there are no monsters in your field.


  • Pair this with cards like Enchanted Javelin to ensure your survival
  • Field spell Yami will always make the token have higher attack than the attacking monster due to token monster type

Holy mother of glitches! I had a golden apples lose all its attack down to 0 for no reason. Anyone ever run into this ?

So first I used a golden apple in response to a Mako deck's Umi-boosted Hammer Shark, therefore 1700+200 = 1900 stats. On a later turn he used Riryoku to halve my attack (for one turn), and I used Etaqua to put his monsters in defense. When the turn ended... instead of returning my attack back to full, it went to 0 ! Bizarre !

I clicked too fast through the end to save the log (which I wish I did), but wowowow weird.

It's not a bug per-se, at least not on GoldenApple's token. It's the effect of riryoku which returns the victim's attack to its original value, which for the token's case is unfortunately 0.

Glitch with malus token and Shield & Sword? Token's atk and def went to 0...

It's not a glitch that atk/def is grant value. So the original atk/def is basically 0. And I believe it'll stay at 0 for the rest of your game too because those atk/def is set once only. You change it and it'll return to real original (0)
Duelist noob
Do you gain lp. Of all attacks at the same time

You activate it immediately after being hit by the attack. So it recovers the damage from that attack
I'm at 4 packs remaining in FotT...Have all URs and SRs except Apples....GAH!!!!!!
How do you get Malus Token?
Try not to use INTERDIMENSIONAL MATTER TRANSPORTER or DIMENSIONHOLE on your Malus Token or else you will loose it.

favorite card to combo with Enchanted Javelin and Rising Energy. Opp attacks, activate Rising Energy to increase opp monster's att, activate EJ to save your life points, then GA to restore the LP you just lost, plus have a monster with 1500 att more than your opp's monster. Even better when it's their strongest monster.

another option is Rising Energy, 2 Golden Apples and Aquachorus. 2000 attack and defense more than your opponent's monster
It's weird for me while resprawns could use two or more The Golden Apples and I couldn't do that. Please tell me how to use it twice in same time.
