    Q: If the monster affected by this effect is elemental hero the shining, what does happen if shining is sent to graveyard?

      The effect of “Elemental HERO The Shining” is a trigger effect that activates in the graveyard, and hence would be unaffected by “Number 25: Focus Force”.

      This interaction is similar to “Sangan” and “Effect Veiler”.
