Originally, Upgrade Monsters are like Ritual Monsters. The similarity is that they need to be summoned by spell cards. However, the difference is that Ritual Monsters can be summoned by tributing a monster while Upgrade Monsters can be summoned when a monster is on the field as their current form.
Plus when they're destroyed, Upgrade Monsters are sent back to the Extra Deck.
