Break is a keyword action.


It is the act of putting one of your opponent's shields into their hand when one of your creatures in the battle zone attacks your opponent and isn't blocked.

If there is no creature with the Blocker keyword to stop the attack, one of your opponent's shields is broken. That means you get to choose one of those shields and your opponent puts it into their hand (unless an effect such as Bolmeteus Steel Dragon says otherwise). It also enables the opponent to use cards with the Shield Trigger ability, so attacking recklessly may cause ambush and reversal.

Break is referenced on Breaker abilities signifying how many shields a creature with the ability will break when they attack your opponent, as well as to trigger the conditions of Turbo Rush, Break Bonus or Kirifudash.

There are Additional Break cards that allow your creatures to break additional shields.

From the Duel Masters - General Game Rules: Version 1.41 (April 12, 2024)

  • 701.14. Break
    • 701.14a To break a shield is to put it into its owner's hand. Break can be caused by attacking with a creature or by other effects.
    • 701.14b Putting a shield into its owner's hand isn't always caused by breaking a shields.

      Example: When a creature with an ability to put a shield into your opponent's hand, it doesn't break a second shield if given 'Double Breaker'.

    • 701.14c When multiple shields are broken by a card effect, they are moved into their owners' hands at the same time. This is different from breaking shields due to a 'Breaker' ability.
    • 701.14d An effect that increases the amount of shield a creature will 'break' affects both an attack caused by an attack, and a creature effect.

    • 701.14b シールドを手札に加える(戻す)という効果はブレイクと同じ挙動をしますが、ブレイクすることを条件とする効果は適用されません。
    • 701.14c 効果によって複数枚のシールドがブレイクされるとき、それは同時に手札に移動します。これは、ブレイカー能力によるブレイクとは異なります。
