Monster Fusion Card
The Fusion Monster card is a special card that has its own label. A Fusion Monster deck of cards is created during battle by fusing two or more monsters.
A player can combine two cards together by using the Polymerization Spell card, thus creating a new monster that is more powerful from the two discarded Monster cards. Each Fusion Monster card specifies two normal Monster cards that must be used to create a specific Fusion Monster.

Also, unlike most cards, Fusion Monster cards are not included in the minimum 40 card Duel Deck. Players who use Fusion Monster cards must always place cards face down in the appropriate place (Fusion Deck Zone) on the Yugioh game mat.
Side Deck Card
Players to modify and improve their main Duel Deck using side Deck cards. The Side Deck must contain exactly 15 cards. Cards from the Side Deck can be exchanged for cards in the Dueling Deck, as long as the number of cards in the Dueling Deck remains the same. True Yugioh etiquette requires that you count the cards in your Side Deck so your opponent can see that you are only playing with 15 cards.
Side Deck cards must always be counted face down so as not to reveal their identity. Whenever a player exchanges cards from their main Dueling Deck with those in their Side Deck, he or she must recount the cards in their Side Deck to ensure they are only playing with 15.
According to Yugioh’s rulebook, players must always be honest about the contents of their Tomb. The grave consists of discarded cards. These cards must always be face up. They are common knowledge, and should not be hidden or obscured from other players.
