Anime appearances

"Star Seraph", known as "Holy Lightning" (光天使(ホーリー・ライトニング) Hōrī Raitoningu or 홀리 라이트닝 Holli Laiteuning) in Japan and Korea, is an archetype of LIGHT Fairy-Type monsters used by Dumon in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime. Their non-Xyz Monsters' effects are centered around quickly Summoning each other from the hand, for Xyz Summoning their own ace and other Rank 4 Xyz Monsters. The members introduced in The Duelist Advent focus on drawing cards as well as swarming for Xyz Monsters that need 3 or more materials.

The kanji in their Japanese names literally translate to "Light Angel", fitting to both their Type and Attribute.

Each member's English name is also an alliteration of the letter S.

Play Style

Similar, to the "hunder" archetype, "Star Seraph" monsters focus on swarming the field. All "Star Seraph" monsters are Level 4 with slightly different effects as "hunders". With "Star Seraph Scout", when Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon another "Star Seraph" monster from your hand. The effect of "Star Seraph Sage" has you discard a Spell from your hand to Special Summon another "Star Seraph" monster from your hand. While the last monster, "Star Seraph Sword", instead of being able to Special Summon, it sends a "Star Seraph" monster from your hand to the Graveyard to increase its ATK until the End Phase. Adding in "Nova Summoner" is a great idea since when it's destroyed, you can Special Summon a LIGHT Fairy monster with 1500 ATK or less. It proves to be a much better option than "Shining Angel" since his effect leaves your Life Points open due to Special Summoning your monster in Attack Position.

Another approach involves using "Photon Thrasher" and "Gellenduo". Since both monsters are LIGHT monsters they can greatly reinforce Xyz Summons, since "Thrasher" can make an instant Rank 4 by his own effect and "Gellenduo" can become a wall to buy the player time for their plays, also their DEF at 0 makes them an ideal target for "Masked Chameleon" to perform Level 8 Synchro Summon tactics. Through these 3 monsters the Deck can play smoothly while mitigating the otherwise high costs of the main deck "Star Seraph" monsters while also expanding their arsenal with powerful monsters.

Also since they are Fairy monsters, cards like "Valhalla, Hall of the Fallen" and "Archlord Kristya" can be used reliable to greatly enhance the summon of strong boss monsters.
