"Egg" (エッ E—[Note 1]) is an archetype of monsters supported by "Insect Imitation" solely in the video game Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses.

"Insect Imitation", known as "Hatching" in the Japanese version, has the effect of transforming an "Egg" monster into a random monster with the specified characteristics, giving the impression of the egg hatching.

Wing Egg Elf An "Elf" monster


  1. While most of the cards in this archetype have the full term 「エッグ」 (Eggu) in their Japanese names, "Ryu-Ran" and "Manga Ryu-Ran" instead have 「エッガー」 (Eggā), hence the Japanese name 「エッ」. Because 「エッ」 ends with a sokuon, and there is no standard way to romanize an ending sokuon, the romanization E— is used.
