"Duston" (ダストン Dasuton) is an archetype introduced in Abyss Rising with the appearance of dust particles. Their playstyle revolves around using "House Duston" to Special Summon members of the archetype to either side of the field, ideally Special Summoning ones with negative effects to your opponent's side of the field and ones with positive effects to your side of the field. This reflects how dust can spread in real life.
The 4 colored "Duston" (Red, Green, Yellow, and Blue) share almost all of their effects with each other except for the one that activates when they are destroyed, the shared effects are:
- Cannot be used as a Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Material for a Summon.
- While this card is face-up on the field, it cannot be Tributed.
- You can only control 1 face-up "[corresponding "Duston]". (meaning a player can only control one of each colored "Duston")
- This archetype has a lot in common with the Ojama archetype.
