Anime appearances


"Dinowrestler" (ダイナレスラー Dainaresurā) is an archetype of Dinosaur monsters with 0 DEF used by Gore in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

"Dinowrestler" monsters are anthropomorphic prehistoric reptiles; primarily dinosaurs. The "Dinowrestlers" that are based on dinosaurs are EARTH, while the WIND "Capaptera" is based on a pterosaur.

Etymology[edit]

The name of this archetype is a portmanteau of "Dinosaur" and "wrestler". "Dino" means "terrible" in Greek, so "Dinowrestler" can be translated as "terrible wrestler". This archetype's monster names are portmanteaus of prehistoric animals and martial arts (eg. Dinowrestler Capoeiraptor is derived from "velociraptor" and "capoeira".)

Playing style[edit]

"Dinowrestler" monsters have effects focused on battle; their support cards often increase their ATK and prevent their destruction. The archetype also focuses on uninterrupted one-on-one battles through the effects of "Dinowrestler King T Wrextle" and "World Dino Wrestling". Like the "Gouki" archetype used by Gore, they too have 0 DEF.
