"Fortune Fairy", known as "Fortune-Telling Witch" (うらなじょ Uranai Majo) in the Japanese version, is an archetype consisting of six Spellcaster monsters with 0 ATK and DEF, each with a different Level from 1 to 6. The archetype was used by Carly Carmine in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's prior to her rebirth as Dark Signer, and is playable in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 4-6.

Design[edit]

Each member is named and colored according to their own Attribute. In the anime and Tag Force games, they're Normal Monsters whose flavor text each tells the fortune of the person who draws it, along with a listing of a lucky number, color, and item. The lucky color and number correspond to that monster's Attribute and Level.

The lowest-Level "Fortune Fairy", "Hikari", is the best prediction (Super Happy), and the predictions get less optimistic as they go up in Level, with the Level 6 "Chee" being Absolutely Awful. The fortune may be said to be based on the usefulness of you having such a card in the hand during a Duel, e.g. a Level 6 Normal Monster with 0 ATK and DEF being a pretty unlucky draw. Curiously, in the anime, "Chee" is the card Carly draws right before her Duel with Sayer, which ends in her death and transformation to a Dark Signer.[1]

In the episode in which they were played, it appears that their playstyle focused on Summoning as many and as fast as possible, using cards such as "Lucky Loan" and "Unacceptable Result", then using "Miracle Stone" to increase their ATK. Otherwise, Carly's use of these monsters mimicked Sartorius' use of his "Arcana Force" monsters as tarot cards.

After Carly became a Dark Signer, these cards evolved into the "Fortune Ladies", which appear to be older and "more twisted" versions.[2]

Starting in the English-version Duel Terminal 1, the "Fortune Fairies" appear in the "Card Only Get" mode.
