"Symphonic Warrior", known as "Sound Warrior" (
The "Symphonic Warriors" are similar to the "Synchron" monsters appearance-wise; both are also Tuner-based archetypes. Where most of the "Synchrons" have vehicle-related and race-related names, the "Symphonic Warriors" have music-related names. They also bear a superficial resemblance to the "Morphtronic" monsters, an archetype of anthropomorphic Machine-types based on household items.
"Symphonic Warrior Basses" can increase the Level of another "Symphonic Warrior" by an amount equal to the number of cards in one's hand. This can be useful for any Synchro Summon, and makes it ideal for "Morphotronic" decks due to the general lack of high-Level monsters within the archetype.
"Symphonic Warrior Drumss" can change the Attribute of another "Symphonic Warrior", making it useful for Attribute-oriented Synchro Summons such as "Zeman the Ape King". This allows it to fit into many different Attribute-based decks.
"Symphonic Warrior Piaano" can change another the Type of another "Symphonic Warrior", making it useful for Type-oriented Synchro Summons such as for "Stygian Sergeants" (Fiend) or "Trident Dragion" (Dragon). This also allows it to fit into a Type without many Tuner monsters, such as a Zombie Deck.
- The "Symphonic Warriors" are based on instruments usually played in a rock band.
- The "Symphonic Warriors" can be related to Konami Arcade Games Keyboardmania ("Piaano"), Guitar Freaks ("Basses"), and Drummania ("Drumss").
- The fact that all "Symphonic Warriors" are Tuner monsters may refer to musical tuning.
