Reptile (Japanese: ちゅうるい Hachūrui) is a monster Type.

Many Reptile cards focus upon weakening the opponent instead of strengthening themselves, limiting the opponent's possible actions and winning the game over the course of a few turns. The most infamous example of this strategy is found in "Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes", which, while difficult to get onto the field, is invulnerable to all other card effects and can revive itself if destroyed by battle, and provides one of the game's few Automatic Win conditions. Reptiles are used by Gansley, Thelonius Viper, Seika Kohinata, Jim Crocodile Cook in the GX manga, Misty Tredwell, Damon Lopez, Braun Honya, Yuga Goha, and Mitsuko Hiramori.

Reptiles gain no ATK or DEF boost from any Field Spell Card; however, the Ogdoadic Field Spell "Ogdoadic Origin" lets the user send opponent's cards to the GY if that opponent destroys a face-up Reptile the user controls. Archetype-wise, Aliens do get a helping hand from "Otherworld - The "A" Zone", while Venoms benefit from "Venom Swamp".

The strongest Reptile in terms of original ATK is Ogdoabyss, the Ogdoadic Overlord at 3100 ATK. Other notable Reptiles are "Gogiga Gagagigo", "Gagagigo the Risen", "Sinister Serpent", "Reptilianne Vaskii", "King of the Feral Imps", "Evil Dragon Ananta", "Cosmic Fortress Gol'gar", "Old Entity Hastorr", "Vennominon the King of Poisonous Snakes", "Divine Serpent Geh" and "Earthbound Immortal Ccarayhua".
