"Odd-Eyes" (オッドアイズ Oddoaizu) is an archetype composed primarily of DARK Level/Rank 7 Dragon monsters used by Yuya Sakaki and Z-ARC in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime, manga, and the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V The Strongest Duelist Yuya!!.
The moniker of "Odd-Eyes" refers to the heterochromia iridum present among the monsters of this archetype, all of which have either a red or yellow right eye and either a green or blue left eye.
The "Odd-Eyes", "Magician" and "Performapal" archetypes each have cards that specifically support the others in them and can be used interchangeably to focus on which part of the "Odd-Eyes" arsenal you wish to use most, as demonstrated with Yuya Sakaki who uses all three archetypes in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime.
Until Link Monsters were released, the "Odd-Eyes" archetype was the only archetype capable of using every Summon mechanic without leaving its archetype.
The Pendulum Summon mechanic was introduced with the trio of "Stargazer Magician", "Timegazer Magician" and "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon", the latter of which can search for one the former two cards. While "Odd-Eyes" is attacking, "Stargazer" and "Timegazer" can prevent the opponent from using Spells and Trap Cards until the end of the damage step.
"Terraforming" and "Sky Iris" can be used in combination with "Magical Abductor" as a Pendulum Scale or monster. "Odd-Eyes Vortex Dragon" can be used in combination with "Sky Iris", with the latter destroying Pendulum Scales to fuel the former's effect.
This archetype usually has "Performapal Pendulum Sorcerer" and "Performapal Skullcrobat Joker" to search for "Performapal Odd-Eyes Unicorn" and "Performapal Odd-Eyes Light Phoenix" for Pendulum Scales, or "Splashmammoth" and "Trump Girl" for a Fusion Summon.
The attack negation effect of "Odd-Eyes Absolute Dragon" works in combination with the protective field effects of "Odd-Eyes Mirage Dragon" and "Odd-Eyes Persona Dragon". "Mirage Dragon" is most useful for changing itself to another Pendulum Scale for "Pendulum Dragon" to reuse the search effect after a Pendulum Summon. "Absolute Dragon" can also be destroyed with the last effect of "Sky Iris" to Special Summon "Odd-Eyes Vortex Dragon" from the Extra Deck or can be targeted by the effect of "Xiangke Magician" to Xyz Summon and gain the full effect of "Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon".
"Harmonizing Magician" can be used with a Level 3 or 4 "Pendulum Magician" monster for a Synchro Summon of "Odd-Eyes Meteorburst Dragon" or Special Summon a Level 7 "Pendulum Magician" for Xyz Material. "Nobledragon Magician" can be used in a similar fashion (from the hand or graveyard) with "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" for a Level 7 Synchro Summon or (from the Extra Deck) "Odd-Eyes Persona Dragon" for a Level 8 Synchro Summon.
Odd-Eyes Chaos/Odd-Eyes Hieratic
This build focuses on using the Summoning effects of "Odd-Eyes Saber Dragon" and "Odd-Eyes Wizard Dragon to fill the graveyard with the necessary monsters to Special Summon large "Chaos" monsters, or to trigger the effects of "Hieratic monsters to swarm the field with monsters to Xyz Summon. The build can be split or changed around in several different ways; Pure "Chaos", "Hieratic" centric, or purely DARK focused.
