Thunder (いかずち Ikazuchi) monsters are generally LIGHT Attribute, although there are WIND, EARTH or WATER Attribute minorities. Thunder monsters usually represent beings with electrical powers. Many Thunder-Type card effects and support cards focus upon destroying the opponent's monsters by effect.

Thunder archetypes includes "Batteryman" which is purely composed of Thunder-Type monsters, and "Watt" (apart from "Wattaildragon" and "Wattsychic Fighter").

Some of the more notable ones include "The Creator", "Mist Wurm", "Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder", "Zaborg the Thunder Monarch", "Thunder King Rai-Oh", "Mist Valley Thunder Lord" and "Denko Sekka".

"Thunder Dragon" is also a well-known Thunder-Type monster, for its Deck-thinning abilities and for its Fusion Monster counterpart, "Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon".

There is also a subset of Level 4 LIGHT Thunder-Type monsters that are noteworthy for stalling or locking down both players from performing some action: "Denko Sekka" prevents Spell/Trap Cards from being set on the field, "Lightning Rod Lord" forbids both players from activating Spell Cards during the Main Phase 1, "Thunder King Rai-Oh", whose effect prevents cards from being searched from the Deck and "Zap Mustung", which locks both players from Special Summoning in a very peculiar manner.

Support cards include "Electro-Whip", "Judgment of Thunder", "Mountain", "Umi", and "Makiu, the Magical Mist". Most notably, the "Hunder" series include general support for LIGHT Thunder-Type monsters, such as "Pahunder" and "Thunder Sea Horse".

Like Beast-Warrior-Type, Thunder-Type Gains advantages from the two field spell cards that Empowers the ATK/DEF of monster-Types, which are "Mountain" and "Umi".
