"World Legacy", known as "Star Relic" (せいぶつ Sei'ibutsu) in Japanese, is an archetype of DARK Machine monsters introduced in Code of the Duelist. It is related to, as well as supports, the "World Chalice", "Krawler", "Mekk-Knight", "Knightmare", and "Orcust" archetypes; the "Crusadia" archetype and "Guardragon" series are also thematically linked despite not being directly supported.


The archetype appears to be based on religious relics, as evidenced by its Japanese name (星遺物 is an homophone of 聖遺物, which literally means "Holy Relic"). Visually, they appear as huge tool-shaped artifacts embedded in the environment, giving them a feel of being ancient and long abandoned, each glowing with one of the colors of the rainbow.


As teased in the flavor text of "Chosen by the World Chalice", there are 7 original "World Legacies", which corresponds to the 7 archetypes as shown in the table below. The number 7 is also related to "World Gears of Theurlogical Demiurgy", who's based on Demiurge, the creator of the Seven Heavens and the Seven Archons.

Playing Style[edit]

Many "World Legacy" monsters are either Anti-support for monsters Summoned from the Extra Deck or specifically act as Support/Anti-support for Link Monsters. In addition to often having effects designed to support their related archetypes (such as "World Armor" Special Summoning itself from your hand in response to a Flip Summon), many members have effects that require them to be Normal Summoned in order to receive their full benefits.
