DARK (やみ Yami "Darkness") is an Attribute in Yu-Gi-Oh!. DARK monsters are commonly thematically associated with conceptual themes of wickedness, mysteriousness, and magic. The Monster Types typically associated with DARK are Fiend, Zombie, and Spellcaster.

Notable DARK monsters include "Dark Armed Dragon", "Jinzo", "Red-Eyes Black Dragon", and "Dark Magician".

Because they are so widespread, DARK monsters have a very wide range of effects, and overlap with almost all other Attributes (for example, there are enough burn-damage DARK monsters to rival FIRE monsters). However, the one thing that DARK monsters specialize in more than any other Attribute are card effects relating to the Graveyard, often by using it as a resource in some way (though the predominately-DARK "Gravekeeper's" Archetype notably prevents the use of the Graveyard as a resource). Most other DARK monsters like "Blackwing" monsters have swarming abilities that allow you to summon monsters to your field to overwhelm your opponent by numbers in battle.

DARK monsters have their own Structure Deck in the OCG, Structure Deck: Curse of Darkness.

In some card effects (e.g. "Wee Witch's Apprentice") and in certain video games, the DARK Attribute is positioned as the opposite of the LIGHT Attribute.
