A Link Summon (リンク(しょう)(かん) Rinku Shōkan) is the method of Special Summoning a Link Monster from the Extra Deck.

During their Main Phase 1 or 2, the turn player can Link Summon a Link Monster from the Extra Deck by first declaring the action and then selecting the Link Monster in their Extra Deck that they intend to Link Summon. Following this, they send the requisite Link Materials they control to the Graveyard, as listed on the Link Monster itself, provided that two conditions are fulfilled. First, that the number of sent Link Materials satisfies the number of required Link Materials listed on the Link Monster being Link Summoned, and second, that the combined number of any sent non-Link Monsters and the combined Link Numbers of any sent Link Monsters exactly matches the Link Number of that Link Monster. After that, the Link Monster is taken from the Extra Deck and placed on the field in face-up Attack Position.
