Note: In the Japanese Version, if an event is being held in the "Extreme" format, all restrictions and limitations below do not apply (this included the usage of Epitome of Knowledge, Silvest, whose restriction exists as a part of card text but not part of the Fighter's rule).

Bushiroad's Reason for Adjustment in the Japanese Version:
  • 'With regards to the over-usage of the above mentioned cards and an imbalance in tournament results, the adjustments will be made to refresh the game environment for the fighters.'
  • Reason for Addition of Card(s) in the Japanese Fighters Rule

- Eradicator, Dragonic Descendant
→This card can be found in more than 50% of the top 2 decks during the following tournaments: "Asia Circuit Special Memorial Tournament", "Great Vanguard Festival Fighters Cup 2013", and "Great Vanguard Festival Fight Royale 2013". As such, it is recognized as an overused grade 3 unit. In order to prevent the deck builds from heading in only one direction, this card will be added to the list.

Reason for Removal of Card(s) in the Japanese Fighters Rule - King of Knights, Alfred
- Wingal Brave
- Lizard Soldier, Conroe
- Dragonic Overlord the End
- Silent Tom
- Godhawk, Ichibyoshi
→As the above cards were not found in great numbers in the top 16 decks of the "Great Vanguard Festival Fight Royale 2013" tournament, where the Fighters Rule which restricts them do not apply, it was deemed that they will not affect the future deck builds too much and can be removed from the list.

Bushiroad's Statement:
  • 'As the situation is different for the Japanese and English versions, there are no plans to implement the following restriction for the English version of Cardfight!! Vanguard at all!'
