So I had starve venom fusion dragon on the field and used its effect to steal its effects/negate them and i lowered its attack power by 500 points so I attacked it and killed neos wise man but when it hits the grave it's effect to burn the opp triggers.....how come? the card says" If this card battles an opponent's monster, inflict damage to your opponent equal to the ATK of the target monster, and gain Life Points equal to that target monster's DEF. "
aka when it "battles" not when it hits the grave not to mention it was sent to the graveyard....then triggers.....
so it's burn effect should only be on the field only had it said " if this card had battled" or something along those lines then I could understand....

My guess it's just outdated text and works fine as it should. all cards that say "When this card battles" has another part where it says before or after the Damage Step. The text just needs to be updated.
Now this is how I play:

I think you're confusing it with the real like effect.
The anime one says "battles" and irl one says "battled" so shouldnt the anime one happen during the battle not when it dies?

"if this card battled an opponent's monster: Inflict damage to your opponent equal to the ATK of the monster it battled, and you gain Life Points equal to that monster's DEF."

The anime one is differently

"f this card battles an opponent's monster, inflict damage to your opponent equal to the ATK of the target monster, and gain Life Points equal to that target monster's DEF."

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Neos_Wiseman_ (anime)

had the anime one said the same thing with "if this card battled" then it would be the same thing but it's not
even in the anime it doesn't go off.


"Turn 13: Nightshroud
Nightshroud draws. "Darkness Neosphere" attacks and destroys "Neos Wiseman" (Jaden 2000 → 1000). Jaden then activates the final effect of "Neos Wiseman" to remove from play "Yubel" from his Graveyard and Special Summon "Elemental Hero Neos" (2500/2000) from his Graveyard in Attack Position."

I'll discuss this with the other scripters. Let's how this gets sorted out.
