"Fur Hire" (空牙団 Kūgadan, "Skyfang Brigade" in Japanese), is an archetype of monsters with different Types, Attributes and Levels that debuted in Dark Saviors.
Unlike support cards for past archetypes, which used the text '"[archetype]" card' in their effects, "Fur Hire" support cards use the text 'monster "Fur Hire"' or 'card "Fur Hire"'.
The monsters "Fur Hire" are anthropomorphic animals wearing armor.
The main strategy of the archetype is to swarm the field with as many monsters "Fur Hire" as possible, in order to trigger their effects, that range from card destruction to LP recovery.
- The Level 4 or lower monsters "Fur Hire" have an Ignition Effect that allows the player to Special Summon a monster "Fur Hire" from their hand during their Main Phase, plus an additional Trigger Effect that activates if a monster "Fur Hire" is Special Summoned while that monster is face-up on the field.
