Cards with the Star Max Evolution ability

Rules

  • As an easy to summon evolution creature card type, it can be used for Ultimate evolution.
  • If you put another S-MAX evolution into the battle zone while the Star Max Evolution Creature is attacking, you can cancel the attack by returning the attacking creature.
  • Q: If I lose the game when I don't have Momoking-MAX in my battle zone, can I discard a 'Momoking-MAX' from my hand instead?
    • A: No, you can't discard it. The replacement effect can only be used when you have 'Momoking-MAX' in the battle zone. source [2022.4.8]

Trivia

  • The concept behind this ability is "Star Evolution where the evolution source is the player themselves." In this way, it is similar in concept to ore evolution. (Source: Twitter)
    • In the same way only the top card of a Star Evolution Creature leaves the battle zone, only the Star Max Evolution creature leaves the battle zone when the player would lose the game.
    • Also, a player can only have one Star Evolution Creature in the battle zone at a time because there is only one player to be an evolution source.
