"Resonator" is an archetype of Fiend Tuner monsters used by Jack Atlas and his imposter in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime, as well as his alternate universe counterpart in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. Their effects are centered around being useful towards Synchro Summoning and stalling. With the exception of DIVINE, there is at least one "Resonator" for each Attribute. Most of these monsters wield a tuning fork and a mallet.
In the anime, "Clock Resonator" is the only Machine "Resonator", although it was changed to a Fiend when released in the OCG. The first six "Resonator" monsters that were released in the OCG are each a different Attribute.
"Barrier Resonator" and "Creation Resonator" are a Tag Team in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's World Championship 2011: Over the Nexus, and "Dark Resonator" appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Arena.

A "Resonator" Deck can be used in many different ways. Most use the classic, Level 3 and Level 5 setup for easy "Red Dragon Archfiend". Cards such as "The Tricky" or "Cyber Dragon" work really well in this kind of Deck. "Instant Fusion" is also an excellent choice. "Resonator Call" is the "Reinforcement of the Army" for the "Resonator" archetype. "Dark Necrofear" is also another option for a "Resonator" Deck. "Primitive Butterfly" is another good option because its effect to Special Summon itself and then to increase its Level by 1 means easier access to your Level 7 and Level 8 Synchro plays.
