Spirit (スピリット ; supiritto) is a card type in the game Battle Spirits. Spirits are the primary creatures you can summon to battle with and deal damage to the opponent. They have different families and effects, and always belong to at least one of the six colors: Red, Purple, Green, White, Yellow, or Blue. (For info on the colors, please refer to the navibox at the bottom.)
Q1. Can new Spirits be summoned using cores already on Spirits?
A1. Yes, cores on Spirits can be used in the same way as cores in the Reserve.
Q2. A new Spirit was summoned using cores from another Spirit. When that other spirit's number of cores becomes 0, what happens to it?

Q3. When the LV1 cost for a Spirit is 2, must two cores be put on it?

Q4. Can Spirits summoned on the main step attack on the attack step of that turn?
A4. Yes, they can.
Q5. When do "when summoned" effects activate?

A6. Yes, any number of core can be put on a Spirit when summoning.

Q1. A Spirit card has levels from 1 to 3, but how does it level up?
A1. Level is decided by the number of cores on the Spirit. In the case of Metalburn, it needs one core to be at LV1, a minimum of 3 cores for LV2, and at least 8 cores to be at LV3.
Q2. Can a Spirit have number of cores on it exceeding the amount needed for it to be at a certain level?
A2. Yes, there is no limit to how much core can be on a Spirit.
Q1. When using a card, if there is not enough core on field, what happens?
A1. When you declare you are using a card, you must use the core you can, even if it means depleting all your Spirits. If there is not enough core any which way, the card returns to your hand and the field returns to the state it was in before attempting to use the card.
Q2. When the number of cores on a Spirit becomes 0 during your main step and is depleted, does that Spirit go to Level 0?
A2. Yes, when the number of cores on your Spirit becomes 0, it goes to Level 0 and is depleted.
