"Trickstar" is an archetype of female LIGHT Fairy monsters used by Aoi Zaizen in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime, which debuted in the OCG with Code of the Duelist.

Appearance

Design

Trickster (anime)

Blue Angel with "Trickstar Holly Angel", "Lilybell" and "Lycoris in the anime.

The "Trickstar" monsters are based on Japanese idols. All of the members shown so far are females dressing in colorful attires with a few pairs of insect-like wings, glassy eyes, a tattoo of varying shape on their faces, and holding an unique object in their respective artworks. Their skirt designs resemble the petal of each flowers they're named after. The Main Deck monsters have an appearance of teenage girls, while the Link Monsters appear as young women.

The monster "Dark Angel", although not being an official member of this archetype, has a similar design to the rest of the "Trickstar" monsters and was also used by Aoi in the anime once.

Etymology

Trickstar is a portmanteau of the words "Trick" and "Star" while also playing on the word "Trickster". The members of this archetype are named after various flowers. In addition, all the Link Monsters' names released so far also contain religious motif.

Playing style

The primary strategy of a "Trickstar" Deck is dealing small amounts of effect damage, usually 200 damage, multiple times through various effects. Each will deal damage when:

The archetype is not without the ability to deal battle damage, however;

  • "Trickstar Holly Angel" gains ATK each time a "Trickstar" monster deals damage, including herself.

This archetype's secondary strategy is to disrupt your opponent's plays to prevent them from mounting a comeback. "Lightstage" can lock down their Set Spells and Traps for a turn before forcing a "use it or lose it" scenario. "Trickstar Reincarnation" banishes the opponent's entire hand and lets them draw an equal number of new cards for them (which can also deal significant burn damage off of the effect of "Lycoris"), eliminating the benefit of search cards and cards that activate in the Graveyard. "Holly Angel" prevents "Trickstar" monsters in her Link Points from being destroyed. "Lycoris" can return "Trickstar" monsters from the field to the hand to avoid other removal effects.

To help facilitate the above strategies, "Trickstars" have immense searching and reviving power. "Lightstage" can search any of the "Trickstar" monsters on activation. "Candina" can search any "Trickstar" card, including herself, when Normal Summoned. This will often be "Lilybell," which you can then Special Summon, allowing you to promptly Link Summon "Holly Angel" or attack directly with "Lilybell" via its effect to recover a "Trickstar" card from the Graveyard. "Lycoris" can return "Candina" to your hand to allow you to Summon her and search again. "Reincarnation" can be banished from the Graveyard to Special Summon a "Trickstar" from the Graveyard.
