Lists

Fiends (あく Akuma "Demon") are a monster Type consisting of cards resembling demons, devils and ghosts, as well as many other vile, twisted beasts or mischievous mythical beings symbolizing darkness, wickedness, perniciousness, and diabolical horror. Fiends are almost exclusively DARK-Attribute, as there are hundreds of DARK Fiends but only a few of other Attributes. Fiends are one of the most established and powerful Types in the entire Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise. As such, there is no one correct and specific dueling strategy built around them and their playing style, although the majority of Fiends focus on offensive beatdown tactics and destroying the opponent's cards, as well as pressuring the opponent by cornering them with stun and lockdown effects, banishing effects, or deck milling.

Fiends are most notably used by PaniK, Yami Bakura, Yami Marik and Declan Akaba. Some of both Yami Yugi, Yugi Muto and Jack Atlas's most well known monsters are Fiends, and Sylvio Sawatari's final deck is made up of Fiends. Otherwise, Fiends are generally cards used by minor antagonistic characters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise.

Fiend-Type monsters have their own Structure Deck; Structure Deck: Devil's Gate/Gates of the Underworld Structure Deck , which focused on "Dark World" monsters, and Structure Deck: Pendulum Domination, which focused on "D/D" monsters.

Fiend archetypes and series include "Archfiend", "Dark World", "Evil HERO", "Djinn of Rituals", "Fabled", "Steelswarm", "Wicked God", "Resonator", "Crashbug", "D/D", "Infernoid", "Magical Musket", "Abyss Actor", and "Tindangle".
