Anywhere Zone is a term used for the processing a card, is special processed when a card is moved between zones until a card has finished its Resolution. It is sometimes known as the "resolution area" or "stack".


It is the zone used when a spell is currently resolving when a spell is cast.

  • Effects on cards such as Cyber G Hogan or Parlock's Miracle Fever are considered to use this zone temporarily while they are resolving..
  • When the card moves between zones, this zone isn't specified by the ability of the card in any way. For example, Duema Ogre! Kikuchi, Assistant Instructor and its interaction with Justice, Lord of Spirits Left God. While Justice is looking at the top 5 cards of your deck in order to cast a spell, it doesn't trigger the ability of Duema Ogre. However, after the spell is cast and put into your graveyard, the ability of Duema Ogre can trigger as the card a seen as being "moved from the deck to your graveyard".
  • The position of this zone on cards isn't specified. For example, spells being resolved are often put into the battle zone during a game in the sense that are being "played".
  • Although it doesn't have an official name for the zone, it is thought of being "outside the game", distancing itself from the other 7 zones.
    • On the other hand, there are places in which the this "zone" exists so there is contradictions in the rule.
  • It was mentioned by the "Duel Masters General Game Rule" document.
