"Blue-Eyes" (ブルーアイズ Burūaizu) is an archetype of LIGHT-Attribute, Dragon-Type monsters used by Seto Kaiba, Kaibaman, Paradox, and Roku. A mysterious woman named Kisara carries the spirit of the "Blue-Eyes White Dragon".

Though members have existed since the Starter Box: Theatrical Release in 1999, it only received its first explicit support with "Priestess with Eyes of Blue" in 2015, with further support in Shining Victories.

This archetype is closely related to the "with Eyes of Blue" series.

Design

Most "Blue-Eyes" monsters closely resemble the original member of the archetype, "Blue-Eyes White Dragon".

Thematically, it has been stated that "Blue-Eyes" represents power while "Red-Eyes" represents potential.[1]

Playing style

"Cards of Consonance" and "Trade-In" were used with "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and "The White Stone of Legend" to Draw the four "Dragon Rulers", after they were restricted to 1, known collectively as the "Dragon Draw" engine or "Egg Turbo" build. These Monster cards could Synchro Summon "Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon" and fuel the effect of "Soul Charge" (when it was at 3) to swarm the Field.

"The Melody of Awakening Dragon" can search "Blue-Eyes Alternative White Dragon" and make it's effect active. Off of this Discard effect or "Dragon Shrine/Ravine", the Graveyard can be loaded with "Blue-Eyes" Monsters for the revival effects of both "Silver's Cry" and "Return of the Dragon Lords" makes the basic engine of this Deck, besides the Level 1 Tuner Monsters listed below.

Structure Deck R: Revival of the Great Divine Dragon offers "Return of the Dragon Lords" and "Divine Dragon Lord Felgrand" for "Blue-Eyes" decks to have additional protection and revival effects and the combination off of "Dragon Shrine" to send "Arkbrave Dragon" with "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" or "Dragon Spirit of White" and then revive the second mentioned. "Amorphage Goliath" can also be used but needs more than a one card setup than with just "Dragon Shrine".

The "with Eyes of Blue" and "The White Stone of Ancients" monsters are LIGHT-Attribute Level 1 Tuners that gain an extra Normal Summon off the effect of "Mausoleum of White". Alongside the "with Eyes of Blue" Tuner's effect to target and activate the effect of "Maiden with Eyes of Blue". "Where Arf Thou?" may also be used in conjunction with "Mausoleum of White" to avoid its costly 2000 Damage.

When Normal Summoned, "Sage with Eyes of Blue" can search any Level 1 LIGHT Tuner monster, or can Discard itself to Special Summon "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" from the Main Deck, and is a key card of both the "Blue-Eyes" and "with Eyes of Blue" archetypes.

Shining Victories includes a new monster, "Dragon Spirit of White", who has the ability to banish an opponent's Spell or Trap Card whenever it is Normal Summoned or Special Summoned. It is also treated as a Normal Monster while in the hand or Graveyard, granting it synergy with cards like "Ancient Rules" and "Silver's Cry".

"Dragon Spirit of White" also has a Synchro Monster counterpart called "Blue-Eyes Spirit Dragon", who prevents both players from Special Summoning two or more monsters at the same time, locking down most Pendulum-based Decks. It also has the ability to negate any effect that would activate in the Graveyard once during either player's turn.

"Blue-Eyes Spirit Dragon" can also can Tribute itself to Special Summon any LIGHT Dragon-Type Synchro Monster. The Synchro Monster must be used as a Material for another Summon or be able to protect itself to avoid being destroyed at the End Phase.

"Blue-Eyes Twin Burst Dragon" is a Fusion Monster that does not need a "Polymerization"-like card to Fusion Summon. It cannot be destroyed by battle, can attack Monsters twice during the Battle Phase and banishes any monster it attacks that is not destroyed by battle.

"Dragon's Mirror" is recommended for the Fusion Monster "Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon". While it is the only face-up card you control, it can attack multiple times in the same Battle Phase, and at the same time, able to send and use other copies of "Neo Blue-Eyes" from the Graveyard to protect any "Blue-Eyes" monster(s) from being targeted by effects.

Rank 8 Dark Matter Dragon Combo

The "Blue-Eyes" deck can easily make use of this dangerous monster due to its ease of summoning the various "Galaxy-Eyes" Xyz monsters, and Rank 8 Xyzs in general. When you have two "Blue-Eyes" monsters on the field, Xyz Summon any "Galaxy-Eyes" Monster; then, Xyz Evolve that monster into "Galaxy-Eyes Full Armor Photon Dragon", which can detach an Xyz Material to destroy any card. After that, Xyz Evolve that monster into "Number 95: Galaxy-Eyes Dark Matter Dragon". If you can resolve this play early enough into a game, this can set up many "Blue-Eyes" Monster combos from the Graveyard, especially when combined with cards such as "The White Stone of Ancients" or "White Stone of Legend" to generate hand advantage (with Stone of Legend) or End Phase field advantage (with Stone of Ancients).

If running "Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon", Banish the first "Dark Matter Dragon" on the Field and use the effect of "Metal Dragon" to Special Summon the first "Galaxy-Eyes" Xyz Monster to Chaos Xyz Change into "Full Armor" and then "Dark Matter Dragon" to repeat the combination and effects twice in the same turn. This combination requires one or two "Full Armor Photon Dragons" and two "Dark Matter Dragons" in the Extra Deck, so it is not recommended to run this and "Neo Blue-Eyes" in multiples.

Common in both "Dragon Rulers" before their banning, "Hieratic" Rank 8 Deck builds or any Level 8 Deck running "Soul Charge" and effects like it.
