"Djinn" (じん Majin) is an archetype of mostly DARK Fiend monsters. The ones that support this archetype are Xyz Monsters used by Yuma Tsukumo in Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, as two-horned, musician-like monsters which mostly focus on anti-Xyz tactics while also supporting one another via their own effects. Their team symbol is a musical eighth note featuring a fiendish-looking face.

The symbol of the musical "Djinn".

Due to their Japanese names, a number of older cards, such as the "Djinn of Rituals" series ("Ritual Djinns") and "Dark Balter the Terrible" ("Djinn Dark Balter"), also fall into this archetype. However, because their TCG and OCG support only works on Xyz Monsters, the only other cards which receive support from them are "Queen Dragun Djinn", "Number 65: Djinn Buster" and "CXyz Mechquipped Djinn Angeneral".

"Witty Phantom" appears as a character in the anime, "Dragon Piper" appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Spirit Caller, "King Dragun" appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 and "Melomelody the Brass Djinn" appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Arena.

Trivia[edit]

"Musical Djinn" monsters are the only monsters whose Korean names include Hangul as base text and Hanja as ruby text, to avoid any confusion caused by the Hangul text.
