Extra Monster Zone


Extra Monster Zone
Extra Monster Zones are the two Monster Zones in the center of the field where Monsters Summoned from the Extra Deck are placed. These Monster Zones were introduced with the release of Starter Deck: Link Strike in July 20, 2017.

Mechanics
If a Monster is Special Summoned from the Extra Deck, it must be placed in either a Main Monster Zone a Link Monster points to, or an Extra Monster Zone. If you Special Summon a Monster from another location, even if it is an Extra Deck Monster, it is Summoned in a Main Monster Zone. If control of a Monster in an Extra Monster Zone is changed, it is placed in a Main Monster Zone, even when returning to its owner. If a Monster in an Extra Monster Zone is temporarily banished, when it returns to the field it is placed in a Main Monster Zone.

Unoccupied
While an Extra Monster Zone is unoccupied or when a Monster is about to be Summoned to that Extra Monster Zone, that zone is not treated as being part of either player's field. When you control a Monster in an Extra Monster Zone, that zone is considered to be part of your field. You can only control one Monster in an Extra Monster Zone at a time unless you have an Extra Link to the other Extra Monster Zone.

Extra Link
However, even if your opponent controls both Extra Monster Zones due to an Extra Link, this does not prevent you from Special Summoning to an Extra Monster Zone by using a Monster in one of the Extra Monster Zones as Material (e.g. Special Summoning "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon" using an opponent's Machine-Type Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone as a Fusion Material).
