Winged Beast


Winged Beast ((ちょう)(じゅう) Chōjū "Bird Beast") monsters represent creatures of flight such as birds or bats. The "Harpie" archetype, one of the most renowned, is comprised primarily of Winged Beasts. The "Blackwing" archetype is composed of DARK Winged Beast-Type monsters that were first released in Crimson Crisis, with further support in Raging Battle and Ancient Prophecy. Winged Beasts commonly have effects related to removing cards from the field, especially cards in the Spell & Trap Card Zone, although some are designed instead to take advantage of an opponent without any cards in their Spell & Trap Card Zone once it has been cleared by the others. One fine example of a card making use of Winged Beast monsters is "Icarus Attack", being extremely popular in the aforementioned "Blackwing" Decks.

Few Winged Beasts are considered to be powerful cards although some of the best are "Stealth Bird", "Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys", "Simorgh, Bird of Divinity", "Earthbound Immortal Aslla piscu", "Earthbound Immortal Wiraqocha Rasca", "Dark Simorgh", "D.D. Crow", "Blackwing Armor Master", "Raiza the Storm Monarch", "The Atmosphere", "Windrose the Elemental Lord", "Simorgh, Bird of Ancestry", and "Raidraptor - Rise Falcon. Interestingly enough, very few of the strongest Winged Beasts are of the WIND Attribute.

While most Winged Beasts are WIND Attribute monsters, there are some exceptions, such as the "Blackwing" and "Raidraptor" archetypes, "Firebird", "Fushi No Tori", "Dark Simorgh", "D.D. Crow", "Battlestorm", "Fire King Avatar Garunix", "Fire King High Avatar Garunix" and others like them. Winged Beasts feature in Structure Deck: Lord of the Storm and a number of them are present in Dragunity Legion Structure Deck.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Falsebound Kingdom, Winged Beasts are treated as Beast Monsters.
