There are many cases in Tokyo encounters where you can cause damage to a selected monster and one case where you can "discard" a monster. Can these actions be taken on epic monsters as well?

I thought there was some documentation that specifically referred to a ruling at least in part related to this, but I cannot locate it.


Page 6 of the Reference Guide:

Epic Monsters are treated like Monsters for all effects except as described here:

  • An Epic Monster cannot be defeated by any effect except losing Health equal to or greater than it's toughness.

So, yes to the first part, no to the second. You can't out-right kill an epic monster with a card ability. You MUST do damage to it. Though, if a card does damage, you can use it all day long.

Additionally, with the expansions, you are able to have things that 'Advance the current Mystery'. If the Epic Monster is part of the current Mystery, you do three damage to the epic monster for 'Advancing the current Mystery'.
