"Machine Angel Ritual"
|Video game appearances|
"Cyber Angel" (サイバー・エンジェル, Saibā Enjeru) is an archetype of LIGHT Fairy-Type Ritual Monsters used by Alexis Rhodes in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime, as well as her alternate universe counterpart in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime, which are all summoned using the Ritual Spell Card "Machine Angel Ritual". Originally playable in the Tag Force games, they were first released in the Collectors Pack: Duelist of Flash Version.
The "Cyber Angels" are based on gods and creation myths of Asian mythologies, such as Buddhism and Hinduism. Their names are written in Ateji－their names use kanji, but only for their pronunciation without any regard for the meaning of the characters.
"Cyber Angel" cards rely on Ritual Summoning and then recycling Monster cards and granting effects to aid more Summon Rituals for next turn. Also having "Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands" and "Pre-Preparation of Rites" search cards to further aid strong field presence.
"Benten" inflicts effect damage when it destroys a monster by battle, and can search any LIGHT Fairy-Type monster when Tributed. "Idaten" immediately recycles a Ritual Spell Card when summoned, and grants all Ritual Monsters you control an additional 1000 ATK/DEF when Tributed. "Dakini" allows a Ritual Monster to deal piercing battle damage, and can add a Ritual Spell Card or Ritual Monster from the Graveyard your hand at the end of each of your turns.
"Vishnu" destroys all of your opponent's monsters summoned from the Extra Deck when Ritual Summoned, inflicts 1000 points of effect damage for each monster destroyed, can attack twice that turn if it does so, and can negate a card's destruction once per turn by shuffling a Ritual Monster in your Graveyard back into the Deck. Finally, "Nasateiya" allows you to increase your LP equal to half the ATK of a face-up monster on your side of the field and negates any attacks direct to Ritual Monsters you control. Additionally, when "Nasateiya" is in the graveyard after having been properly Ritual Summoned before, you can banish a "Cyber Angel" monster from your Graveyard, Special Summon "Nasateiya" and take control of an opponent's monster.
