Unlike support cards for other archetypes, which uses 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, which 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.

|Bravo||4||FIRE||Reptile||Increases the ATK/DEF of all monsters "Fur Hire" by 500, until the end of the turn.|

The Level 5 or higher monsters have a Trigger Effect that activates when they are Special Summoned and another effect that serves as a protection against the opponent's actions, by either negating their cards/effects or preventing them from targeting other monsters "Fur Hire" with card effects.
|Fur Hire||Level||Attribute||Type||Trigger Effect when Special Summoned||Protective effect|

Lastly, the Link Monster "Folgo, Justice Fur Hire" supports the playstyle with further Special Summoning and drawing.
- The "Fur Hire" archetype desperately needs its Normal Summon to swarm the field, therefore any card that can negate it will severely cripple the "Fur Hire" strategy.
- Cards like "Rivalry of Warlords", "Gozen Match" and "Unification" can prevent monsters "Fur Hire" from swarming the field.
- Monsters "Fur Hire" heavily depend on their monster effects, making cards like "Skill Drain" very effective against the Deck.
