XY - Dragon Cannon (e. XY-Dragon Cannon)
XZ - Caterpillar Cannon (e. XZ-Tank Cannon)
YZ - Caterpillar Dragon (e. YZ-Tank Dragon)

Any other special summon monster can be Monster Reborned/Dimension Fusioned as long as it was properly summoned.

Disclaimers. I think.
This list was compiled by the Yu-Gi-Oh OCG Expert Rules HP, which is not sponsored or endorsed by Konami or Upperdeck Entertainment, or any related parties. It was translated and edited by Raijinili (meaning that you can blame him for mistakes).
This list is accurate for the Japanese OCG as of November 5th, 2005. Its accuracy cannot be guaranteed past that date.
This list may not be used as an official reference for the Japanese OCG, the Asian TCG, or the TCG in Upperdeck Entertainment territories.
The OCG names were translated by Edward T. Hrzic,, or myself. They are not necessarily an accurate representation of Konami's initial intent for the names.
Respond with ANY typos or errors, no matter how small.

I'm not up to date with the English cards (or the Japanese ones, for that matter). I might have missed a few that came out in English.
Unless one of the other mods or admins objects, I've moved his to the Netrep Guides section. Plus I've enbled the auto-linking for the english cards (and not the Japanses translations to preserve the formating). I think it's it useful for both TCG and OCG purposes.
Dang it, I forgot to save it without auto-linking for other forums.

Oh, wait, I did.

Man, this post is pointless.

So, is anyone gonna check over the English names or not?

NOMI is the Japanese word for "only" as I understand it, and is the word we use to designate the difference between the two types of Special Summon-Only Monsters.

An example of a monster that is NOT a Nomi would be Spirit of Flames or any other monster with this text:

"This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card can only be Special Summoned by..."

This type of monster can only be summoned this way initially. But once properly summoned, then it's eligible for revival after going to the Graveyard or Removed from Game Zone through an effect like Call of the Haunted, Premature Burial or Return from the Different Dimension. But if, say, the monster were never summoned properly, like being discarded to the Graveyard without ever hitting the field, then the monster cannot be Special Summoned using revival effects.

On the other hand, a NOMI Monster has this text:

"This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by..."

This is a NOMI Monster. It cannot be summoned in any manner, except be through it's built in Special Summoning effect. Regardless if it's properly summoned the first time, the only way to ever bring this monster to the field is through the effect written on the card.

You'll notice the difference between the two is that NOMI Monsters use the words "cannot" and "except" in their second sentence and non-NOMIs do not.

NOTE: Well, a couple of notes actually. One is that there appear to be a couple of exceptions to the NOMI rule. In actuality, their effects that circumvent the rule. And, so far, this is only when dealing with the LV Monsters, who have a few cards that specifically say to ignore any and all summoning conditions. (e.g. Level Up!)

The other notation would be that the NOMI and non-NOMI text hasn't always been clear, so a lot of older cards in circulation do not have either of the above two text templates I quoted above. "This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set." was one sentence that didn't used to be in either version. The best way to make sure what the updated text is, is to check Netrepâ„¢ or the UDE site for the most recent and up-to-date erratas.
