Sevens Road (セブンスロード Sebunsu Rōdo) is a series of DARK Spellcaster monsters, debuting in Starter Deck Yuga - Cut Through! Sevens Road!! and used by Yuga Ohdo in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. The series is related to the Road Magic series.

History[edit]

In the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime, the Sevens Road series was developed by Otes at the Development Department of Goha Corporation. Otes gave "Sevens Road Magician" to Yuga when Yuga was a child. In addition, Otes proclaimed that the Sevens Road monsters will be the road leading the owner to the throne of the king.

Design[edit]

The Sevens Road monsters are visually similar to the "Dark Magician" and "Gagaga" monsters, with "Sevens Road Magician" and "Sevens Road Witch" in particular being counterparts to "Dark Magician" and "Dark Magician Girl", respectively.

Each Sevens Road monster so far is named after a type of magic user that begins with M or W, and has a different Level from 1 to 7. All Sevens Road monsters share the same background in a different color; with the exception of the "Magician" and "Witch" pair, their clothing is the same color as the background of their artwork. Each monster also wears 7 rings somewhere on its body, and has its own magical symbol in the same color as the background of its art, which appears 7 times in its background.

Curiously, when the monsters are sorted by Level, the colors arrange themselves to form the rainbow order, although offset by 2 (such that it begins with yellow, loops back to red after violet, and ends with orange).

Member Level Color
Wiz 1 Yellow
Mage 2 Green
Enchanter 3 Cyan
Warlock 5 Violet
Witch 6 Red
Magician 7 Orange

Playing style[edit]

The Sevens Road and Road Magic series focus on supporting their ace monster, "Sevens Road Magician", using many Spellcaster monsters of different Attributes to apply a wide variety of effects and increase the ATK of "Sevens Road Magician".

"Sevens Road Witch" is able to Special Summon "Magician" from the hand to put on a quick offense, while "Sevens Road Warlock" can easily set up the combo of "Magician" and "Witch" by retrieving both from the GY at once. Combined with the effect of "Sevens Road Mage", the Deck is able to easily destroy most, if not all monsters by battle - even a Maximum Monster.
