Alternate Loss Condition
(Tokushu Haiboku Jōken)
Japanese Wiki: 3955

Alternate Loss Condition is an effect that can change the conditions of how you lose a game of Duel Masters.


Usually you lose a game by a Direct Attack from a creature, but these cards give alternative methods, usually as a demerit to their powerful abilities. It is the opposite of Alternate Win.

Bombazar, Dragon of Destiny

Fire + Nature / Creature / Armored Dragon + Earth Dragon / 7 / 6000

(This creature is put into your mana zone tapped.)

■ When you put this creature into the battle zone, destroy all other creatures that have 6000 power. Take an extra turn after this one. You lose the game at the end of that turn.

■ Speed attacker (This creature doesn't get summoning sickness.)

■ Double breaker (This creature breaks 2 shields.)

Although Bombazar, Dragon of Destiny is a powerful card that exists on the Premium Hall of Fame, it has a condition that you will lose the game at the end of your Extra Turn. Other cards with this sort of alternate loss trigger have appeared in the Hall of Fame with Dokindam X, The Legendary Forbidden and Dormageddon X, Forbidden Armageddon.

As they are generally a Trigger Ability, depending on the situation, these can be avoided by cards that skip the rest of the turn such as Ragnarok, the Clock.
