A Type (((しゅ))(ぞく) (Shu)zoku) is a means to split monsters into groups (in a broader way to what Attributes do) in order to enable Support Cards granting various effects, to a specific order of monsters. Players can use Field Spell Cards to use Type divides to their advantage.

Each monster has one Type. There are twenty-three different legal Types in the TCG and OCG. Divine-Beast is exclusive to the Egyptian Gods and was considered Illegal until the first legal-print God Card, "Obelisk the Tormentor", was created; Creator God is exclusive to "The Creator God of Light, Horakhty". Immortal only appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses.

"Type" should not be confused with "type", which refers to the three main types of cards: Monster, Spell, and Trap.


These Types exist within the OCG and TCG.
