"Starving Venom", known as "Starve Venom" (スターヴ・ヴェノム Sutāvu Venomu) in the OCG, is an archetype of DARK Dragon Fusion Monsters used by Yuya Sakaki, Yuri, and Z-ARC in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. It is a sub-archetype of the "Venom" archetype, and is related to the "Fusion Dragon" archetype.
As with the "Fusion Dragon" archetype, the "Starving Venom" archetype is focused on "all-out stealing", ranging from changing ATK, gaining or negating effects, and having effects. The archetype is only supported by "Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon" whose effects share similar characteristics with the members.
