Téa uses a Deck full of mostly Fairy cards, but in the Virtual World arc, she played with a Deck mostly made of Spellcasters. At first, when using a Fairy deck, her deck was subject to much ridicule and mockery by her opponents like Mai Valentine and even her friends Tristan Taylor and Joey Wheeler, for being too girlish and cute, as her main monsters were "cutesy" as described by Mai, in reference to her cards like Shining Friendship and Fairy's Gift. When she first summoned Petit Angel, Tristan and Joey reacted with anguish and embarrassment at her lackluster and weak card. Like Mai Valentine, most of her monsters are female. She combines her Spell Cards with Monster Cards to boost the overall strength of her monsters and she uses Trap Cards like "Waboku" and "Mirror Force" to protect her monsters from harm. She Duels once in the manga and six times during the course of the second anime series (four of which were off-screen).
