A Synchro Summon is the act of Special Summoning a Synchro Monster from the Extra Deck using a Tuner with additional non-Tuner monsters.

In the anime, many characters have chants for some of their Synchro Monsters, which they recite while Synchro Summoning them.

How to Summon a Synchro Monster

1. During your Main Phase 1 or 2, when the total Level of a Tuner and 1 or more non-Tuner monsters you control is equal to the Level of a Synchro Monster you want to summon, you can declare that you are performing a Synchro Summon. These Tuner and the non-Tuner monsters are called the Synchro Materials. Redundant monster(s) are irrelevant.

2. In order to Synchro Summon a Synchro Monster from your Extra Deck, you add the level of a Tuner Monster on your field to the level of another monster(s) on your side of the field. That value must equal the level of the Synchro Monster you wish to summon.

A Synchro Summon is another type of Special Summon..

3. After sending the monsters from your side of the field to the Graveyard, you then place the Synchro Monster from your Extra Deck in face-up Attack Position or Defense Position on your side of the field.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ME

Earlier, Synchro Summoning in Yu-Gi-Oh! ME is depicted as having the Tuner becoming thick green rings equal to its Level while the non-Tuners becoming Levels. In Chapter 7, the Tuner rings became similar to how they appeared in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V  anime, then in Chapter 8, the sequences regresses the Tuner into a separate Level, also borrowing the same background used in ARC-V, then finally, in Chapter 9, the sequence used the same exact aesthetics used in ARC-V. Initially, it was planned to have a special Summoning sequence to "Paintress" monsters, but it never happened.
