"Battlewasp", known as "Bee Force" (B・Fビー・フォース Bī Fōsu) in Japan, is an archetype of WIND Insect monsters used by Shinji Weber in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime.


The Japanese name of "Bee Force", 「B・F」 is analogous to the Japanese name of "Blackwing", "Black Feather", also abbreviated 「BF」, which emphasizes the friendship between Shinji and Crow Hogan. The English name reflects this with the initials of both archetypes' localized names being "BW".

Individually, the "Battlewasp" monsters are named after piercing weapons, such as arbalests and ballistae.

Playing style

The "Battlewasp" archetype seems to focus on very straightforward swarming tactics to perform quick Synchro Summons and overwhelm the opponent with ATK/DEF decreasing and burn effects. Furthermore, they seem to revolve around "numbers" - the more "Battlewasp" monsters you gather, the stronger their effects become, reflecting Shinji's mentality of union.
