If I recall correctly they actually say target on the card.

Another question, though:
What about traps that equip?
Most of them target in their wording

The more you observe, the less you assume.

Reading is fundamental.

Gee I couldn't tell.

At regionals it was ruled to be targeted by card effect. But that's a regional so who knows

You guys are making no sense here. There is no such thing as "targeting by game mechanic".

All Equip Spell Cards target by default. That's all.

You know other than the bit where no rulebook says so and outside of Equips that summon monsters I can't find any that say "Target a monster..."

Equipped Monster

A monster that is equipped with an Equip Card is an “equipped monster.”
When this monster is destroyed or flipped face-down, the equipped card
loses its target, and is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard.

Yes, but there are cards that say cannot be targeted by Cards or effects, and wouldn't that imply that cards can target without effects? That would have to be a mechanic, and if it is then Equip Spells are the only thing that come to mind.
Thus we ask, are Equip Spells a game mechanic? Or a card effect?

Yes, because a card can be targeted for an attack.

Wait so if a card says, "this card cannot be targeted by Cards or Effects" it can't be attacked?!?

There are two type of targeting. Targeted for an attack, or targeted by a card eff. Simple.

No. I clearly said there are 2 types of targeting.
Targeted for an attack is not targeted by a card eff.

So if the card says cannot be targeted by cards or effects, basically saying that both effects and cards can target, independent of each other.
