Default Utopia vs Dimensional Prison/Mirror Force

If a monster attacks and its controller's opponent activates Mirror Force or Dimensional Prison, can either player activate Utopia's effect to negate the attack and if they do will it cause DPrison/Mirror Force to fizzle?

They were activated properly. So they resolve fine.

Utopia has a Trigger effect, meaning it is Spell Speed 1, as opposed to Traps, which are auto-Spell Speed 2. Apply simple mechanics, so no, Utopia cannot.

It MUST be CL1, chained directly to the attack.

Utopia not SS2? Trigger is never 2?

No, Trigger effects are Spell Speed 1.

Also, this is a VERY helpful ruling:
Quote:
During the attack declaration, when the opponent already activated a card like Dimensional Prison, you cannot chain this card's effect.
Straight from Utopia's rulings.

If the attack is negated, like chaining Negate Attack to Mirror Force/ Dimensional Prison (for no reason), effect still goes through right?

Yes. Unless the other cards are also trying to negate the attack (which neither of them are), they'll resolve normally.

Dimensional Prison requires its target to remain correct (that is to say, an attacking monster) in order to resolve properly.

These contradict each other in the case of DP. Consensus?

A slight nit-pick. Utopia doesn't have to be chain link 1 in all cases. Say for example you have 2 Utopias on the field, you can activate both of them in response to an attack in a SEGOC, naturally leaving one of them being chain link 2.

Looking at the ruling of Dimensional Prison, it does seem like the monster must remain being an attacking monster to properly resolve its effect.

Yes, look at the rulings for Scrubbed Raid. It says D Prison doesn't get effect if it's no longer attacking.

Additional Comment:

Is it ok to chain Mirror Force/D Prison to Utopia?

Yea, though I don't know why you would unless the opponent had "Herald of Orange Light" in the middle of them, or you're chaining to the second effect.

Opponent needs a 3rd dark in grave so they attack with their own Utopia and detach a dark material?

And Redshift is too good to not poke his head in every rules thread and flaunt his ego with useless, condescending posts? I've explained this to you before, it's more efficient for me to just post my question here and get an immediate & accurate answer than research it elsewhere.

Its actually usually quicker to have a quick look on yugioh.wikia.com then post a question on here if you can't find a ruling to answer your question.

If you Chain the effect of Scrubbed Raid to Dimensional Prison, Dimensional Prison will resolve without effect, since its target is no longer correct.

Mirror Force does not destroy attacking monsters, it destroys Attack Position monsters, so Chaining the effect of Scrubbed Raid would be moot.

However I run the risk of the answer not being there, which DOES happen quite often. And it's not so much the speed of the response, it's that I can do whatever else and just come back here whenever with the answer waiting for me.

Why do you care? I'm not being lazy I'm being efficient. If this works better for me than checking the Wiki does, why wouldn't I do it?

^ It just means you want the answers to be spoon-fed to you. Probably suits you since you're "spoonman"

The thread has been answered. If Dimensional Prison is used, Utopia cannot chain its effect to negate the attack.
