"Blue-Eyes" (ブルーアイズ Burūaizu) is an archetype of LIGHT Dragon monsters used by Seto Kaiba, Kaibaman, Paradox, and Roku. A mysterious woman named Kisara carries the spirit of the "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" as revealed in both the anime and manga.

Though members have existed since the Starter Box: Theatrical Release in 1999, it only received its first explicit support with the with Eyes of Blue series.

Design[edit]

Most "Blue-Eyes" monsters closely resemble the original "Blue-Eyes White Dragon", as all monsters in this archetype are either retrained counterparts, downgraded, or upgraded forms of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon". The With Eyes of Blue monsters are based on the four people who carried the spirit of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, included Kisara.

Playing style[edit]

The "Blue-Eyes" archetype centers on the Level 8 LIGHT Dragon Normal Monster, "Blue-Eyes White Dragon"; most "Blue-Eyes" Extra Deck monsters specify "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" as a material, and many "Blue-Eyes" support cards support "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" specifically. Generally, a "Blue-Eyes" Deck aims to utilize the support for "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" to swarm the field with many copies of it and its variants, and use them make Main Deck or Extra Deck boss monsters for OTKs or field control.

The archetype's boss monsters can be broadly divided into four types by their card typing: Main Deck non-Ritual, Ritual, Fusion, and Synchro.

The archetype's main lower-level support monsters are all Level 1 LIGHT Tuner monsters, and can be divided into two types: the with Eyes of Blue Spellcasters, and the "White Stone" Dragons ("The White Stone of Ancients" and "The White Stone of Legend"). The "with Eyes of Blue" monsters focus on searching and interacting with Level 1 LIGHT Tuners and Special Summoning "Blue-Eyes" monsters, making them consistency boosters for both the archetype's low-level monsters and boss monsters. The "White Stone" monsters meanwhile can search out "Blue-Eyes" monsters if sent to the GY, and are commonly sent to GY by milling or discarding costs/effects from other cards. Their status as Level 1 Tuners lets them easily make archetypal and non-archetypal Level 9 Synchro boss monsters if summoned alongside a Level 8 "Blue-Eyes" monster.

The card attributes that surround "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" (Level 8, LIGHT, Dragon, Normal Monster) gives it a large amount of external support. Examples include "Trade-In", "The Melody of Awakening Dragon", "Dragon Shrine", "Dragon Ravine", "Silver's Cry", and "Return of the Dragon Lords". Though the archetype has no archetypal Xyz boss monsters, the archetype's ability to swarm Level 8 monsters enables easy Xyz Summons of powerful Rank 8 monsters, such as "Number 38: Hope Harbinger Dragon Titanic Galaxy".

Weaknesses[edit]

  • As an archetype that consists primarily of LIGHT and Dragon monsters, specific Attribute and typing counters, such as "Ally of Justice" or "Light-Imprisoning Mirror" can significantly hamper the deck's performance.
