Useful to prevent your monster from being attacked with high level effect monsters.

Effect monsters are common, making this usable against a lot of monsters. Especially good when they have high attack or defense.

Tips, related cards, skills

Dream Clown

Turning this monster from attack to defense position gives you more advantage, can easily destroy monster on opponent's side of the field.

Blade Rabbit

Another card with the same effect as the Dream Clown, switching it to defense position is more of an advantage to destroy monster on your opponent's side of the field.


  • The effect of this card cannot be activated at the damage step.

Will curse of anubis work if red eyes slash dragon uses its effect? What cards can counteract the effect of slash dragon?

Curse of Anubis doesn't target, so Slash Dragon can't negate it with its effect
Please update this page. Odion lvl 21 is not the only way to get this card

Well... Not anymore then.
Interesting how this little card is so good lol
uh.. currently the "battle position cannot be changed part" isn't working apparently. Not sure why, but every people I've faced recently were able to switch it back to attack position, especially when I had to pop it on main phase, because a sergeant electro was tryna pin it down. I'm certain this is a bug, because I've faced an opponent using this card several times and back then I couldn't change my monster's battle postions. AND NO, they/I were not using normal/gemini monsters.

I think is not a bug as is but something wrong with the way the text was interpreted, apparently this effect only last one turn as well. You can try it activating this in your main phase on your own monsters, you won't be able to change them back to attack except with card effects

Yes! I have also had this issue in the KC cup. That turn they should not be able to change their effect monsters to attack position.
why is this card suddenly popular out of nowhere?

This does does not work om Cocyctus because it attacks in defense mode.
truly useful and f2p
I need to make a correction and Idk where else to post it. So here it is. This says Curse of Anubis comes from Odion at lvl 21. I'm not saying that isn't true because I haven't even gotten Odion in the gate yet so Idk, but I got Curse of Anubis when I unlocked Ishizu Ishtar.

That seems wrong. Not saying it didn't happen, but I have Ishizu and no Curse yet (with Odion at 18 currently). Are you thinking of Judgement of Anubis?

Can this work against vampire kingdom when it procs or does the card need to hit the field and activate to be able to chain curse of anubus?

Wrong card
If it taps my monsters during the opponent's turn, will I be able to attack with them on my next turn?
