A Lingering Effect is any effect that resolves after the card itself has resolved, and has been sent to the Graveyard. Here are a few such cards with these effects:

One type of card which often has a "lingering" effect are the Token Monsters. Tokens are neither Effect Monsters nor Normal Monsters, they do not have any effects of their own; rather, the "effects" of Token Monsters are actually the "lingering" effect of the Spell, Trap or Effect Monster effect that Summoned it.

These effects, however, are listed as "effect(s)" of the Token Monsters, along with the only way it can be Summoned, to make their purposes less confusing.
