"Cyber" (サイバー Saibā) is an archetype of cards used by several characters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime and manga, most prominently Zane Truesdale and Alexis Rhodes. It includes the "Cyber Angel", "Cyber Dragon" and "Cyberdark" archetypes, as well as the "Cyber Girl" series. Support had previously existed only in the anime and manga, but a support card for their Spells and Traps debuts for the OCG in Structure Deck: Blitzkrieg of the Mechlight Dragons.

Duelists who use this archetype are said to be practitioners of "Cyber Style".

The "Cybernetic" archetype, although related, contains no members of this archetype, as their Japanese names do not contain 「サイバー」. Since all support for the "Cyber" archetype also supports the "Cybernetic" archetype, in the TCG (in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese), the "Cybernetic" archetype is treated as a subset of the "Cyber" archetype.

In addition, "Cyber Commander", "Cyber Falcon", "Cyber Saurus", "Cyber Soldier", "Cyber Soldier of Darkworld", "Cyber-Stein", and "Cyber-Tech Alligator" are not considered to be part of this archetype, as their Japanese names do not contain 「サイバー」. However, since support for this archetype only affects Spells and Traps in the Main Deck, this is not an issue.

Etymology[edit]

In the manga, some "Cyber" cards are named after stars in the Draco constellation.
