"Trap Hole", known as "Pitfall" (()とし(あな) Otoshiana) in the OCG, is an archetype of Trap Cards having "Trap Hole" in their names. These cards are counterparts of the original "Trap Hole". With the notable exception of "Adhesion Trap Hole", most "Trap Hole" cards have effects that destroy 1 or more monsters under certain conditions. This archetype is supported by all international texts of "Goblin Pothole Squad" (or rather, "anti-supported" in this case), and only the Japanese text of "Traptrix" archetype. In the TCG, it is treated a sub-archetype of the "Hole" archetype, as all cards that support "Hole" cards also support "Trap Hole" cards.

"Chaos Trap Hole" and "Gemini Trap Hole" belong to the "Hole" archetype instead of this one, since their Japanese names don't include 「落とし穴」 Pitfall. "Darkfall" (formerly known as "Dark Trap Hole") is also not a member of this archetype since its Japanese name has the kanji 「大」 between 「落とし穴」, thus creating 「落とし穴」.


A knight, orange goblin, and/or green goblin appear in most of the artworks of "Trap Hole" cards, the only exceptions being "Deep Dark Trap Hole" (featuring "Goyo Guardian"), "Time-Space Trap Hole" (not featuring a victim), and "Void Trap Hole" (featuring the "Brionac", "Gungnir", and "Trishula").
