Fairy (てん使 Tenshi, "Angel") is a Type of monster often represented by beings such as sprites, angels, deities, or, in some cases, advanced organic and mechanical beings of supernatural or extraterrestrial origin. They're primarily LIGHT, although there are at least some for all six main Attributes. Fairies usually appear as benevolent beings of love and harmony, however there are many villainous-looking themes as well, such as "Arcana Force" and "Darklord". They are used by many characters in the anime and manga, often female ones, including Belowski, Sartorius, Adrian Gecko, Midori Hibiki, Reggie MacKenzie, Z-one, Dumon, Zuzu Boyle, Micky Starlett, Aura Sentia, and Skye Zaizen.

Fairies have three of their own Structure Decks: Structure Deck: Surge of Radiance (OCG-only), Structure Deck: Lost Sanctuary/Lost Sanctuary Structure Deck, and Structure Deck R: Surge of Divine Light/Structure Deck: Wave of Light.

Prominent Fairy monsters include "Arcana Force EX - The Light Ruler", "Archlord Kristya", "Athena", "Banisher of the Radiance", "Bountiful Artemis", "Darklord Morningstar", "Guiding Ariadne", "Herald of Perfection", "Honest", "Master Hyperion", "Odin, Father of the Aesir", "Vylon Omega", "Number 16: Shock Master", "Artifact Durendal", and "Sacred Arch-Airknight Parshath".
