They are similiar in appearance to "The Winged Dragon of Ra", both being based on the Egyptian deities. The focus of this archetype is that each individual monster would not turn against the controller once it is on the field. They do so via effects such as not switching sides, being unaffected by Spell Cards and negating the activation of any Spell Card.
The major draw of this "LV" family is the capability of "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8", which can shut down the activation of any Spell Card as long as its face-up on the field. The dreaded Horus Lockdown involves a combo of "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" and "Royal Decree", which shuts down the effects of Spells and Traps. The best part of this combo is that the player controlling "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" is still able to use the effects of Spells, while their opponents cannot. A new variation of the lock down is to use "Tyrant's Temper" and then add in cards like "Skill Drain", "Gravity Bind", and "Royal Decree", meaning it can negate monster effects as well. Due to this, Decks that do not focus around low Level monsters are limited against the new lockdown. Another option, if one is not willing to invest in the given Trap Cards, is to include "Destiny HERO - Plasma", which can easily be Special Summoned by Tributing three "Sheep Tokens".
