WIND (かぜ Kaze) is an Attribute in Yu-Gi-Oh!. WIND monsters are commonly thematically associated with avian and airborne beings. The Monster Types typically associated with WIND are Winged Beast and Psychic.

Notable WIND monsters include "Raiza the Storm Monarch", "Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms", "Windrose the Elemental Lord", "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon", "Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon", "Stardust Dragon", "Castel, the Skyblaster Musketeer", "Majespecter Unicorn - Kirin", "Mariamne, the True Dracophoenix", "Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack", and "Stellar Wind Wolfrayet".

Effect-wise, WIND monsters are strongly associated with non-destruction removal, such as returning to the hand or Deck. They are also strongly associated with effects that remove Spell and Trap cards. Many Spell and Trap cards with effects involving the destruction of Spell/Trap cards are also thematically related to winds and wind-related natural phenomena, such as "Mystical Space Typhoon", "Twister", "Typhoon", "Tornado", "Dust Tornado", "Heavy Storm", "Cyclone Boomerang", "Malevolent Catastrophe", "Harpie's Feather Duster", "Pendulum Storm", etc.

In some card effects (e.g. "Greatfly") and in certain video games, the WIND Attribute is positioned as the opposite of the EARTH Attribute.
