Manga appearances

"Symphonic Warrior", known as "Sound Warrior" (音響戦士サウンドウォリアー Saundoworiā) in the Japanese version, is an archetype of WIND Machine monsters (some of which are Tuner monsters), first released in Storm of Ragnarok. Sindy Cross used "Symphonic Warrior Basses" in the Yu-Gi-Oh! D Team ZEXAL manga.


"Symphonic Warriors" are mechanic anthropomorphized music equipment. They all have some sort of support effects to change the card attributes of monsters on the field. The Pendulum monsters of the series have more varied effects that allow the summoning of multiple monsters.

Playing style[edit]

The series focuses on changing the attributes of cards on the field to allow for versatile Synchro Summons - potentially any Level, Attribute, Type, or even specifically named Monster Card, the player needs for a Sychro Summon, can hypothetically be created using the support effects of "Symphonic Warrior" monsters.

"Symphonic Warrior Basses" can increase the Level of another "Symphonic Warrior" by an amount equal to the number of cards in one's hand. This can be useful for any Synchro Summon, and makes it ideal for "Morphotronic" Decks due to the general lack of high-Level monsters within the archetype.

"Symphonic Warrior Drumss" can change the Attribute of another "Symphonic Warrior", making it useful for Attribute-oriented Synchro Summons such as "Zeman the Ape King". This allows it to fit into many different Attribute-based Decks.

"Symphonic Warrior Piaano" can change another the Type of another "Symphonic Warrior", making it useful for Type-oriented Synchro Summons such as for "Stygian Sergeants" (Fiend) or "Trident Dragion" (Dragon). This also allows it to fit into a Type without many Tuner monsters, such as a Zombie Deck.

"Symphonic Warrior Guitaar" can Special Summon "Symphonic Warrior" monsters from the Deck or Graveyard with its effects, making it easier to get a Tuner and non-Tuner monster onto the field.

"Symphonic Warrior Synthess" adds a "Symphonic Warrior" from the Deck to the hand when flipped face-up (other than "Sizerrs"), and can banish itself from the Graveyard to Special Summon a banished "Symphonic Warrior" (again, excluding "Sizerrs"). In addition, once per turn, it can copy the effect and name of another "Symphonic Warrior" warrior you control or in your Graveyard, for added versatility.

"Symphonic Warrior Miccs" not only compliments "Guitaars" as a Pendulum Scale, but also allows for faster play of the "Symphonic Warriors". While in the Pendulum Zone, he can recycle banished "Symphonic Warriors", but when he is Summoned, either by his own effect, a Normal Summon, or a Special Summon such as a Pendulum Summon, he gives you an additional Normal Summon or Set, greatly increasing the number of plays you can make, especially since he is a Level 5 Pendulum Monster that can easily be recycled for powerful Synchro Summons.

"Symph Amplifire", the new Field Spell Card, rewards the player with Symphonic Counters for activating the effects of "Symphonic Warrior" monsters: all "Symphonic Warrior" monsters gain 100 ATK per counter, and counters can be removed to inflict damage or banish your opponent's cards!

Recommended cards[edit]


  • The "Symphonic Warriors" are based on instruments usually played in a rock band.
  • The original 3 "Symphonic Warriors" can be related to Konami Arcade Games Keyboardmania ("Piaano"), Guitar Freaks ("Basses"), and Drummania ("Drumss").
  • The fact that the first round of "Symphonic Warriors" are Tuner monsters may refer to musical tuning.
