Dinosaur (Japanese: きょうりゅう Kyōryū) is a monster Type. Dinosaur monsters are aesthetically themed after their historical namesake, and gameplay-wise typically revolve around high-ATK monsters, offensive Monster Effects, Special Summoning high-Level Main Deck monsters, and effects that destroy friendly Dinosaur monsters for advantage. Dinosaur monsters are predominantly EARTH, but do have many non-EARTH members; notably, WIND Dinosaurs typically resemble pterosaurs.
