This article is about the keyword. For the song, see: Limit Break (Song)


"Limit Break" (リミットブレイク Rimitto Bureiku) is a keyword in which it is required that you have a certain number of cards in your damage zone to activate (like four or more). It was first introduced in the Trial Deck 5: Slash of Silver Wolf and Trial Deck 6: Resonance of Thunder Dragon. It appears marked by something like a clock or speedometer with "LB" and its respective number on it: LB4Icon / LB5Icon.

Thunder Break Dragon's ability which is a Limit Break ability (see below), there is "Limit Break 4". Which means the effect only activates when you have four or more cards in your damage zone. So if you have less than four cards in your damage zone, that effect does nothing and will not activate.

[AUTO](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):When this unit attacks a vanguard, this unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of that battle.

Sub-names of Limit Break

  • Ultimate Break: In some cases, you might see cards with Limit Break 5 (LB5) instead of Limit Break 4 (LB4), this means that can only be activated if you have five or more damage, this is called "Ultimate Break" in the anime. Booster Set 15: Infinite Rebirth even introduced two units, from Link Joker and Gold Paladin clans, which have both Limit Break 5 (LB5) as well as Limit Break 4 (LB4) abilities that can be used simultaneously at five or more damage.
  • Break Ride: These are skills that can be activated only when you ride a unit of the same clan on top of it while you have four or more damage. When you do, your vanguard gets +10000 Power until end of turn, and in addition other effects during that turn.


  • There are units whose skill allows Limit Break 4 to be used without requiring 4 or more damage.
  • So far the only units with Limit Break that have been introduced are grade 3 or greater.
  • Gear Chronicle is the only fully playable clan without Limit Break cards.
  • Glory Maker has a skill similar to Limit Break (need exactly four or more cards in the damage zone).
    • Ironically, this card was released long before the era of Limit Breaks.
