Anime appearances

"Nordic Alfar", known as "Polar Star Spirit" (きょせいれい Kyokuseirei) in Japan, is a sub-archetype of the Nordic cards that is used by Broder in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. The main purpose of "Nordic Alfar" is to recover "Nordic" cards from your Graveyard to your hand and Synchro Summon "Loki, Lord of the Aesir".

The "Nordic Alfar" are connected to the Norse God Loki. Ljósálfr is a combination of the words "Light" and "Álfr" (Elf). The Light Elves are divine beings who dwell in the heavens of Álfheimr (Elfland). The Japanese name of "Svartalf of the Nordic Alfar", Dökkálfr, is the opposite of Ljósálfr: It's a combination of the words "Dökkr" (Dark) and "Álfr" (Elf). Unlike the Light Elves who live in the heavens, the Dark Elves dwell down below the Earth.

Playing style[edit]


  • A unique thing to note about them is that the colors of "Ljosalf", "Svartalf" and "Dverg" are cyan, magenta and yellow, respectively, while "Loki" and "Mara" are black (or shades of it). This may be a reference to the CMYK color system.
  • All of the "Nordic Alfar" monsters have a club-tail, similar to an Ankylosaurus.
