Tamaseed is the soul of a creature! After using its ability,
it will remain in the battle zone, so use it as an evolution source!!
However, be careful as it can't attack!!

Tamaseed is a card type.


It was first mentioned on the Luna Daybreak Sigma card in DMEX-18 20th Anniversary Huge Thanks Memorial Pack: The Chapter of The Shadow Parallel Masters, however, no card with the card type was released in that set.

The card type was later introduced in the DMSD-20 King Master Start Deck: Joe's Star Max Evolution and DMSD-21 King Master Start Deck: Abaku's Oni RexStars decks before their inclusion in the DMRP-21 Oni Yaba Counterattack Star Max!! booster pack.

Each Tamaseed has the Shinkarise keyword that allows you to put evolution creatures on them as if they were a creature (This also includes Neo Evolution).

Shinkarise: You may put evolution creatures on this tamaseed as if it were a creature.

Each Tamaseed also has at least 2 races, one being either RexStars or Oni RexStars (paired with Demonio).


A Tamaseed's name is based on formerly released creatures.

Their suffix is also dependent on their civilization (unless they have the Jokers or Oni RexStars race).

  • Q: What is a Tamaseed?
    • A: This a new card type. If you use it, it will be put into the battle zone. After using its abilities, it stays in the battle zone, but unlike a creature, it has no power and can't attack. As its not a creature, it also can't be attacked by your opponent's creatures and can't be chosen by abilities that destroy creatures such as Terror Pit? source [2022.4.8]
  • Q: When I use Viola's Shadow, can I remove a seal from FORBIDDEN SUNRISE ~Dawn of Forbidden~?
    • A: No, you can't remove a seal. Tamaseed isn't a creature, so using it isn't considered a "Summon". source [2022.4.8]
  • Q: Can the "when you put" ability of Jaouga, Finality King Oni destroy the creatures and tamaseeds under my opponent's evolution creatures?
    • A: No, they can't be destroyed. The characteristics of any cards under a creature are ignored. Therefore the effect of destroying creatures and tamaseeds doesn't allow you to choose creatures or tamaseeds under a card. source [2022.4.8]
  • Q: What happens to the cross gear that was crossed, weapon that was equipped or attached aura to an evolution creature when the top card of an evolution creature leaves, and a tamaseed remains in the battle zone after Rebuilding?
    • A: The cross will be uncrossed and stay in the battle zone, and the weapon will be put into the hyperspatial zone. (Note: No information is mentioned about Aura. It is likely removed as it only attaches to creatures.) source [2022.4.8]
  • Q: With the "when you put" ability of Slotton's Memory, I evolved Shield Knight (Absolute Star) and gave it "Blocker". If 'Shield Knight (Absolute Star)' leaves the battle zone during the same turn, does the 'Slotton's Memory' tamaseed still have 'Blocker'?
    • A: Yes, it has the 'Blocker' ability. After an evolution creature has been given an effect, if the creature becomes a Tamaseed during that turn by rebuilding, the effect isn't lost. However, as Tamaseed isn't a creature type, you can't block with it, and it can't be referenced by an effect that specifies a 'creature that has "blocker"'. In that turn, if 'Slotton's Memory' evolves, the evolution creature will get 'Blocker'. source [2022.4.8]
  • Q: Can I choose the Smapon's Memory under my opponent's Shield Knight (Absolute Star) and destroy it with the "when you put" ability of Akkan Perocket?
    • A: Yes, you may put them into the graveyard. Tamaseeds under evolution creatures are also non-creature cards. source [2022.4.8]
  • Q: When Orlilia (Petro Star) evolved over Smapon's Memory leaves the battle, the 'Star Evolution' only removes the top card instead. can the 'Smapon's Memory' stay in the battle after Rebuilding?
    • A: Yes, you may leave it. source [2022.4.8]
