"Shien" (エン Shien) is an archetype of cards related to the "Six Samurai", through "Gateway of the Six" and "Shien's Dojo". The Japanese effect text for those two cards specifies all cards in the "Shien" archetype must have 「紫炎」 in their Japanese names, with 「エン」 as furigana. For this reason, "Kagemusha of the Blue Flame" ("Shien's Body Double") is a "Shien" card, while "Shien's Spy" is not.

Some of the monsters are monkeys that aid the "Six Samurai", and the archetype as a whole largely serves as support cards for "Six Samurai".

Etymology[edit]

"Shien" literally means "Purple Flame", so in the artworks of most "Shien" cards, there are visible purple/blue flames.
