"Stardust" (スターダスト Sutādasuto) is an archetype of cards used by Yusei Fudo in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime and manga. They focus on Synchro Summoning and Special Summoning "Stardust Dragon" and "Stardust Warrior".
"Stardust Shimmer" is not a "Stardust" card because it does not have 「スターダスト」 in its Japanese name.
"Stardust Dragon" appears as a character in World Championship 2010 and in Duel Arena, "Malefic Stardust Dragon" appears in World Championship 2011 and "Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode" appears in World Championship 2009, in World Championship 2010 and in World Championship 2011.
The archetype focuses on Synchro Summoning "Stardust Dragon" and larger Synchro Monsters that require it as Material. The smaller "Stardust" Synchros, "Assault Warrior" and "Charge Warrior", focus on advantage, such as gathering more Materials for Synchro Summons, or drawing cards. "Stardust Dragon" and its upgraded forms, focus on protection from destruction or attacks, or negating effects.
The archetype’s Spells and Traps focus on gathering Materials, removal effects, and gaining advantage from the Dragon’s various tributing/self removal effects.
