"Gaia the Dragon Champion", known as "Gaia the Dragon Knight" (りゅうガイア Ryūkishi Gaia) in Japan, is an archetype of Level 7 WIND Dragon Fusion Monsters closely related to the "Gaia The Fierce Knight" archetype and "Curse of Dragon" series.

The only direct support for this archetype is "Knight of Legend", a TCG Speed Duel-exclusive Skill Card; as such, the only monster of this archetype that can benefit is "Gaia the Dragon Champion" itself, which is Legal in the format. In the OCG and main TCG formats, the name "Gaia the Dragon Champion" is instead used to search "cards that mention "Gaia the Dragon Champion"".


The core members of the archetype are the original "Gaia the Dragon Champion" and its two retrains, who share its properties, stats of 2600 ATK and 2100 DEF, and have similar Fusion Materials. Both of its retrains treat themselves as "Gaia the Dragon Champion" via a Continuous Effect while on the field.

Though not a member by name, "Gaia the Magical Knight of Dragons" is treated as "Gaia the Dragon Champion" while on the field and fits the theme of this archetype, and will therefore be included in this list.

Monster Fusion Materials
Gaia the Dragon Champion "Gaia The Fierce Knight" + "Curse of Dragon"
Sky Galloping Gaia the Dragon Champion 1 "Gaia The Fierce Knight" monster + 1 Dragon monster[a]
Gaia the Magical Knight of Dragons 1 "Gaia The Fierce Knight" monster + 1 Level 5 Dragon monster[b]


"Gaia the Dragon Champion" support cards typically support "Gaia the Dragon Champion" by name, but the Speed Duel Skill "Knight of Legend" supports "Gaia the Dragon Champion" as a common name string.

Though "Gaia the Dragon Champion" support cards lack an archetypal name, they are collectively supported by "Curse of Dragon, the Cursed Dragon" and "Curse of Dragon, the Magical Knight Dragon" as "[card] that mentions "Gaia the Dragon Champion"".
