Anime appearances


"Salamangreat" (サラマングレイト Saramangureito) is an archetype of FIRE Cyberse monsters used by Takeru Homura in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

"Salamangreat" appear to have a general fire theme, resembling animals with flaming armor. Additionally, the animals they resemble are largely carnivores.

Etymology[edit]

The name of this archetype is a portmanteau of "salamander" (サラマンダー Saramandā) and "great" (グレート Gurēto). The kanji (転生炎獣) literally translate to "reincarnation flame beast", referencing Takeru's use of Reincarnation Link Summon. The archetype is also loosely inspired by alchemy, with Emerald Eagle being named after the "Emerald Tablet" and Violet Chimera serving as the representation of a chimaera.

Playing style[edit]

In the anime[edit]

"Salamangreat" monsters focus around swarming the field with their effects to Special Summon themselves, setting themselves up for a Link Summon. The support cards for the archetype have effects which either replenish LP, or shuffle "Salamangreat" monsters from the GY to the Deck, sometimes doing both.

The boss monsters have effects that can only be used if it was summoned using another copy of itself as material. For "Salamangreat Heatleo", this is supported through the use of "Salamangreat Sanctuary", which bypasses the usual summoning conditions by using only a copy of "Heatleo" as Link Material.
