Types are a means to split monsters into groups (in a broader way to what Attributes do) in order to enable Support Cards granting various effects, to a specific order of monsters. Players use Field Spell Cards to use Type divides to their advantage.

Each monster has 1 Type. There are 22 different legal Types in the TCG and OCG. Divine-Beast is exclusive to the Egyptian Gods and was considered Illegal, although it is now legal in the OCG and will be in TCG as of January (when the first legal English-print God Card is released). Immortal only appears in "Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses".


Immortal is a Type appearing in the video game Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses.

Human is a Type appearing only in a character's fantasy in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime.

Black Magic and White Magic are Types used in the Bandai card game.

??? ?Edit

??? is used to indicate that a monster's Type is unknown.
