Inherent Summon vs Effect Summon

Post  D.D. Eatos on Mon Jun 24, 2013 11:51 pm

Inherent and Effect

Credit goes to Sinisterplantboy

Inherent Summon is an unassisted summon that does not create a chain. Nomi and Semi-Nomi Monsters are all Inherent Summons.
Effect Summons are summons who either start a chain or require another card's effect to be summoned. This type of summon can be chained to.

Inherent Summon comes in the following forms
Normal Summon
Flip Summon
Special Summon
Synchro Summon (without Formula Synchron)
Xyz Summon

Effect Summoning comes in the following forms
Special Summoning
Fusion Summoning
Ritual Summoning
Synchro Summon (with Formula Synchron)

How can I tell the difference?
In the text of all inherent summon monsters, they have the parenthesis is thier text

Ex. of an Inherent Summoning Monster

Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World

Attribute: Dark
Level: 8
Type: Fiend/Effect
ATK/DEF: 2700/1800
Text: You can Special Summon this card (from your Graveyard) by returning 1 face-up "Dark World" monster you control to the hand, except "Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World". If this card is discarded to the Graveyard by a card effect: Target 1 card your opponent controls; destroy that target, then, if this card was discarded from your hand to your Graveyard by an opponent's card effect, look at 1 random card in your opponent's hand, then, if it was a monster, you can Special Summon it to your side of the field.
Ex. of an Effect Summoning Monster

Text: You can return 1 face-up monster you control to the hand to Special Summon this card from your hand and this card gains 500 ATK if it was a WIND monster you returned. If this card is Special Summoned with this effect, remove it from play when it is removed from the field.
