Disney Lorcana: Rush Explained

Disney Lorcana: Rush Explained

In the world of Disney Lorcana, sometimes all you need is speed. You know, while your opponent is busy setting up the perfect synergies, carefully managing resources, and thinking about the perfect combos, you can just rush in and take the win before they even know what hit them. It’s like ordering pizza delivery while they’re still dilly-dallying with their homemade dough.


But hey, if you’re the kind of player who likes to play fast and fearlessly, Rush is the keyword you should be paying attention to. It’s all about diving in and getting things done without waiting for ink to dry. No need to twiddle your thumbs while those slowpokes take their sweet time. So, here’s everything you need to know about Rush.

What Is Rush?

You see, in the magical realm of Disney Lorcana, when a character is first played, its ink hasn’t yet dried. And no, we’re not talking about the kind of ink that squirts from pens. This ink represents the character’s readiness, like a wet paint waiting to dry. So, until the start of your turn, that character can’t do anything fancy like going on quests or challenging opponents. It’s just chilling, waiting for the ink to dry and become usable.

But Rush, my friend, rushes through all the waiting. It lets a character challenge on the very same turn it enters the stage. It’s like that one kid who never needs a nap before going out to play. So, while other characters may still be bound by the ink drying rule for exerting their powers, Rush characters can just jump in and say, “Challenge accepted!”

Rush really comes in handy for those characters who’ve been around for more than one turn. Once their ink has dried, Rush doesn’t provide any further benefits. So, you better make the most of it while you have the chance. It’s like finding a secret stash of cookies when you’re all grown up and can’t indulge in sneaky treats anymore.

How To Use Rush

Rush is the quintessential aggro mechanic. You know, the kind that loves charging ahead and putting constant pressure on opponents. With Rush characters, you can charge in, challenge their creatures, and rebuild your board state for the next turn, ready to do it all over again. It’s like being a high-intensity fly buzzing around their heads, constantly keeping them on their toes.

But here’s the catch: timing is key when playing a Rush character. Once that first turn is over, Rush becomes about as useful as a drenched Pikachu in an electric-type gym. So, if you’re not willing to charge in and challenge something, it’s better to leave your Rush character in the deck. No point in bringing them to the party if they’re not going to show off their moves.


In essence, think of Rush characters as bold and reckless, just like those cowboys in old western movies who would shoot their six-shooters out of pure guts. They might put themselves on the line and sacrifice to take out an opponent’s character, but hey, if it throws a monkey wrench into their plans, it might just be worth it. So, don’t be afraid to let your Rush characters show their true spirit and make sacrifices for the greater good.
