The Attribute Spirits are a group of monsters with "Spirit" 「精霊」 in their name; however, they are not Spirit monsters. They each belong to one of the four elemental Attributes: EARTH, FIRE, WATER, and WIND. Being Special Summon-only monsters, their conditions for being Special Summoned are that you must banish one of your monsters in your Graveyard with the same Attribute. There is another set of monsters with similar effects and conditions, but these do not include "Spirit" in their name, and some require you to remove two monsters of the proper Attribute instead of one. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime, these cards were part of Lyman Banner's/Amnael's Alchemy Deck, used as part of the cost for "Elemental Absorber".

Members

Their Japanese names share a naming pattern (Element "Spirit", Name) as follows:

Effects and stats

"The Rock Spirit" and "Spirit of Flames" have the same ATK and DEF and they have similar effects:

  • The ATK of "The Rock Spirit" increases by 300 during its opponent's Battle Phase.
  • The ATK of "Spirit of Flames" increases by 300 during its controller's Battle Phase.

"Garuda the Wind Spirit" and "Aqua Spirit" have the same ATK and DEF and have similar effects too:

  • "Garuda the Wind Spirit" can change the battle position of 1 face-up opponent's Monster Card monster during the opponent's End Phase.
  • "Aqua Spirit" can change the battle position of 1 face-up opponent's monster during the opponent's Standby Phase.

Monsters with opposite Attributes have effects with opposite purposes too:

  • "Garuda the Wind Spirit" has a defensive effect, while "The Rock Spirit" has an offensive effect.
  • "Aqua Spirit" has a defensive purpose while "Spirit of Flames" has an offensive effect.

Utility

These monsters are good for swarming, Synchro and Xyz Material because they can be easily Special Summoned from your hand.

They have different Attributes, so you can use them in an Element Deck or a Charmer Deck. These monsters make the activation of "Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan" easier.
