"Armed Dragon" (アームド・ドラゴン, Āmudo Doragon) is an archetype of monsters introduced in Soul of the Duelist, composed primarily of WIND Dragon "LV" monsters. First support for this archetype did not appear until Duelist Pack: Legend Duelist 2, which also released cards that tie this theme heavily to the "Ojama" and A-to-Z themes. All three of these themes were used famously in one Deck by Chazz Princeton in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime.

Due to its Japanese name, "Hardened Armed Dragon" is not a member of this archetype.

"Armed Dragon" monsters also appear as characters in video games.

Playing style[edit]

The original "Armed Dragon" series focused on sending cards from the hand to the Graveyard to destroy monsters on the field. Depending on the ATK of the monster sent, certain monsters could be destroyed while others were not. "Armed Dragon LV10", being the strongest, simply destroys all face-up monsters regardless of their ATK and any card could be sent from the hand to the Graveyard, rather than only monsters, as was the case with the lesser forms.
