Beast-Warrior (Japanese: じゅうせん) is a Type of Monster Card.

They usually resemble anthropomorphic animals or other half-man, half-animal creatures such as centaurs. Their effects generally apply after destroying a monster, and help them destroy monsters more easily, but many of their effects also deal with Normal Monsters or give an advantage during battle, like "Exarion Universe" and "Enraged Battle Ox". Devon Knox's Main Deck in Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL is primarily composed of these monsters, while Celina uses them in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V.

Beast-Warriors are neither Beast nor Warrior monsters, so they are not affected by effects that specifically affect Beast or Warrior monsters (though occasionally, support cards for either will also specifically include Beast-Warriors, such as "Enraged Battle Ox").

"Phantom Beast" was the only primarily Beast-Warrior archetype until 2012. Cosmo Blazer saw the release of the "Fire Fist" archetype, which also included a potent searcher for Beast-Warriors, "Fire Formation - Tenki". From that point on Beast-Warriors have remained consistently powerful; the "Lunalight" and "Zoodiac" archetypes would later follow in coming years. Some can be also found in the "Gladiator Beast", "X-Saber", and "Yosenju" archetypes. Other notable monsters include "Reborn Tengu", "XX-Saber Gottoms", "Manticore of Darkness", "Mystical Knight of Jackal", "Cat's Ear Tribe", "Chiron the Mage", "Gene-Warped Warwolf", "Ghost Knight of Jackal", "Pitch-Black Warwolf", "Indomitable Fighter Lei Lei", "Lycanthrope", "Shiba-Warrior Taro", "Mother Grizzly", "Beast King Barbaros", "Panther Warrior", "Vorse Raider", and "Thor, Lord of the Aesir".

In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Falsebound Kingdom, Beast-Warrior monsters are treated as Warrior monsters. Beast-Warrior monsters gain advantage from two Field Spell Cards that increase the ATK and DEF of specific monster Types, "Sogen" and "Forest".
