Calling an impact monster also counts as casting an impact, following the same rules as such.
- Calling an impact monster via a card's effect bypasses the restriction of "only one impact monster per turn". A player may call any number of impact monsters by using effects and during any phase.
- An impact monster can be a player's buddy. A player who calls an impact monster that is his or her buddy may gain 1 life with buddy gift if it enters the field successfully.
- An impact monster may attack during the attack phase or during the final phase.
- While an impact monster is on the field, it is put horizontally to represent its standing state, and vertically to represent its resting state. If an impact monster is a buddy, it is put vertically at the start of the game when face down in the buddy zone and turned horizontally (ie. its standing state) when it is turned face up. After a buddy call, the impact monster in the buddy zone is turned vertically (ie. its resting state).
