However, it's important to note that not all f2p players may be able to own all meta decks at once, since Legendary Cards sometimes are too expensive to craft with Souls.

Q: What is the "attack gauge"?
A: The attack gauge is the moving arrow/bar coming out of a Unit Card, blue for ally Units, red for enemy Units.
Q: How do I check the count of an ability?
A: Some cards can only perform something if your "count" is at a set number. For example, Unleashed (DON 022) will only give Flight to a friendly Unit Card if your "Explore" count is at 3 or higher. There are two ways to know the count of something:
- By tapping the card which needs the count to be at a certain number to perform a specific action.
- By tapping at your Hero, which will then display your Hero Art's effect and the count needed. Do note that just like the cards, only Hero Arts which need a count in the first play will display it on the text.
Q: I tried to play an Action Card but it did not work!
A: Certain Action Cards can only be played under a certain condition. Make sure to read the Action Card's description to see what the condition is. For example, Unforeseen Interference (COR 117) cannot be played unless your opponent plays an Action Card first.
Q: Why did my Unit Card just suddenly get killed?
A: Sometimes things in TEPPEN can happen too quickly. If one of your Unit Cards got killed immediately out of nowhere, make sure to tap any enemy Unit Cards to see what their effects are. For example, the effect of Lady (COR 024) reads "When played: Deals 6 damage split among all enemy units.", as such, this card can potentially immediately one shot your Unit Cards when the opponent plays it.
Q: Why do I keep playing against a person named "Stranger" all the time?
A: "Stranger" is the default name given to players if they have not set a name or if the player chooses to not show their screen name to others.
Q: What is a "Giant Killer Challenge"?
A: Please see the following link: Ranked Match.
Q: Can I complete Missions in Room Matches?
A: Yes, if the mission states "against another player", then you can complete it in Room Matches, Free Play, Ranked, etc.
Q: What are the rewards given for leveing up [Hero]?
A: Please see the following link: Level Up Rewards.
Q: What is the maximum level of a Hero?
A: 50 for all Heroes.
Q: Can I build a deck with more than one color?
A: Yes, but the maximum MP will be decreased. Please see the following link for further information: How to Play.
Q: What are Secret Cards?
A: Secret Cards are an alternate version of an already existing card. These cards feature an alt illustration, with it usually being animated. The Secret version still acts as a duplicate of the original card, so you cannot have x3 of the default card and x3 of the Secret version in a deck.
Q: I know my opponent is using a deck with two or more colors but they have played a card with an MP cost that's higher than their limit, how is that possible?
A: While the game gives a warning that you are using a card with an MP cost above the limit, there are still ways to force it into play, such as using False Throne (COR 175) followed by Rebirth (DON 099).
Q: My opponent has more than one Devil Hunter Dante (COR 116), even though the Legendary limit is one.
A: The effect of Devil Hunter Dante (COR 116) reads as:
- Resonate: Sends this unit to the Graveyard and puts Devil Trigger Dante in the previously occupied board slot.
As such, when your opponent triggers Resonate, Devil Hunter Dante (COR 116) will be sent to the Graveyard and Devil Trigger Dante (T002) will be placed in the same slot. Your opponent can then use Rebirth (DON 099) or Obsessive Duel (HBM 097) to bring the Devil Hunter Dante (COR 116) that was on the Graveyard onto the field, this will not remove the Devil Trigger Dante (T002) from the board.
Q: What are Tour Points?
A: Please see the following link: Tour Points.
Q: I have used Wire Snatch (NERO 013) but my Unit Card was still hit/destroyed/halted/etc.
A: Wire Snatch (NERO 013) will only move the Unit Card to a different slot, it will not stop Action Cards or abilities from interacting with the card in the question. The only ability that would miss is the one related to "the unit in front", such as Experiment Records (WESKER 012).
Q: Does Spillover trigger when hitting the Hero?

Q: Who made this wiki?
Q: Is this wiki affiliated with GungHo/Capcom?
Q: There is something wrong with a page...
A: If you find something wrong, or something that requires an update, then you can always edit and fix the page yourself. Some pages are protected so that only registered users may edit, if the page you want to edit has that requirement then you must log in or create an account to edit it.
If the problem is unrelated to the content within the page itself, then there may be something wrong with FANDOM, if this is the case, then simply wait until the problem fixes itself, or contact FANDOM to let them know what is wrong, because the TEPPEN Wiki cannot do anything at that point.
Q: How can I help?
A: You do not need to help the wiki, but if you wish to do so, you may want to see the categories under the site maintenance category, they will list pages that need some type of edit.
If you wish to create a new page, it's recommended for you to see the layout guide first so that it fits the style of the wiki.
