"Masked HERO" (M・HERO(マスクドヒーロー) Masukudo Hīrō) is a "HERO" sub-archetype mostly consisting of monsters used by Jaden Yuki in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga.

They are currently the only monsters shown to perform Transformation Summons and Double Attacks.

Rather than Fusion Summoning like most Fusion Monsters do, they use cards like "Mask Change" to Special Summon themselves from the Extra Deck.

So far, the archetype consists of five Normal Monsters and six Transformation Monsters. It favors a fairly straight-forward Beatdown strategy, with "Goka" gaining 100 ATK for every "HERO" in the Graveyard,"Acid" destroying all spells and traps the opponent has and decreasing their monsters ATK, "Vapor" being unable to be destroyed except by battle and "Dian" Special Summoning more "HERO" monsters to the field. Two Transformation monsters were recently added to the OCG/TCG, the once manga-exclusive "Dark Law" and the brand new "Koga".

While the "Elemental HERO" archetype is said to be based off of American superheroes, it can also be assumed that the "Masked HERO" archetype is a salute to Japanese Super Sentai or Kamen Rider heroes. In addition to "Kamen" meaning "Masked", there are several similarities between the two, such the recurring "form changing" and transformations of Kamen Riders. The Double Attacks are also similar to the original Kamen Riders' (1 and 2) "Rider Double" techniques.
