Thunder Break Dragon

Break through the limits!

—Phrase when declaring Limit Break

"Limit Break" or "LB" for short (リミットブレイク Rimitto Bureiku), is a keyword introduced in the Trial Deck 5: Slash of Silver Wolf and Trial Deck 6: Resonance of Thunder Dragon. It is indicated by a speedometer followed by a variable number; LB4Icon / LB5Icon.

How it Works

A "Limit Break" ability remains active, or can only be used, as long as the number of cards in your damage zone is the stated number or more. You need to have the stated number or more as soon as the event for an ability would occur, even if you are able to get it during the resoluion of other ability. If it activates successfully, then it will resolve even if the requirement is not met after being activated. If the number of cards in your damage zone becomes less than the stated number anytime (even during an attack), the ability is no longer active.

Limit Break 4 Enablers

Booster Set 16: Legion of Dragons & Blades introduced units with an ability that allowed the vanguard's "Limit Break 4" to be used even if the player had three or less damage; however, the unit with this ability must be already on the field to be applied.

Generic Support Cards

  • Some clans with Limit Break cards have generic support cards in the form of a grade 0, a grade 1, and a grade 2 card, which possess the same ability for each grade.
    • Grade 0: [AUTO](RC):[Put this unit into your soul] When an attack hits a vanguard during the battle that this unit boosted a «clan» with Limit Break 4, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card.
    • Grade 1: [AUTO](RC):[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit boosts a «clan» with Limit Break 4, you may pay the cost. If you do, the boosted unit gets [Power]+3000 until end of that battle.
    • Grade 2: [AUTO](VC/RC):When this unit attacks, if you have a «clan» vanguard or rear-guard with Limit Break 4, this unit gets [Power]+3000 until end of that battle.

  • When a unit activates its Limit Break in the anime a vanguard circle with a color corresponding to the color of the user's VC color appears and spins quickly above the unit.
