Critical Hit (クリティカルヒット, Kuritikaruhitto) is a keyword introduced in SD22 and BS25. The keyword is used to boost the effect of Ultimate Trigger, and only exists within Ultimate Trigger. This effect reads:
- *Critical Hit*: If the hit card is [condition], also [additional effect].
Due to the use of the wording "also", the resolve timing of Critical Hit is the same as Ultimate Trigger itself after it's confirmed hit. Also, if the Ultimate Trigger is guarded, even if the condition of Critical hit is confirmed, Critical Hit can't activate.
