Cyberse (サイバース Saibāsu) is a Type of monster. This Type is used by Yusaku Fujiki and Revolver in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS. Appearance-wise, they resemble creatures and humanoids strongly connected to elements of digital technology and cyberspace. At times, they tend to resemble either Machine or Psychic monsters (the humanoids bearing design elements from the TRON franchise). The name is a portmanteau of "Cyber" (サイバー Saibā) and "Universe" (ユニバース Yunibāsu).
Their general theme revolves around swarming the field with weak monsters to easily Link Summon powerful Link Monsters, and they also have lots of monsters that gain effects when banished in a similar vein to Psychic monsters.
In the anime
In Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, the Cyberse monsters appear to be a special kind of monster related to the Cyberse world. When Yusaku used these monsters in his Duel against the Knights of Hanoi, the spectators were surprised to see him possess Cyberse monsters. As stated by Revolver, through currently unknown means the Knights of Hanoi had destroyed a vast amount of them to the point they believed Cyberse monsters to be extinct. All Link Monsters retrieved from Data Storms have been Cyberse-type. As such, the Topologic Bomber Dragon retrieved by Revolver is also a Cyberse-type.
- This is the first new Type to be used by the protagonist of a spin-off series.
- So far, there are no Fusion, Ritual, Synchro, Tuner, Xyz or Pendulum Cyberse monsters.
