"Captain" (たいちょう, Taichō) is a series of EARTH Warrior monsters centered around the classic "Marauding Captain" and his retrained counterparts. With the exception of "Motivating Captain", all members of this series are Level 3 monsters with 1200 ATK and 400 DEF.


The Captain series focuses on Special Summoning other monsters upon their own Normal Summon.

In most languages their names are composed as "[X] Captain", where [X] is a word that rhymes with the other members' corresponding one.
