Japanese (kanji and furigana)







Beast-Type monsters are often overlooked, but often have great utility. Because they are relatively low in number compared to more popular monster types, there is no one specific theme or strategy common to them, though many have effects that assist them during the Battle Phase. Many Beasts are weaker utility monsters that splash well into other decks, like "Nimble Momonga", but a few Beasts are potent on their own, such as "Green Baboon, Defender of the Forest", which summons itself whenever ANY Beast is destroyed, "Master of Oz", which is one of the strongest Fusion Monsters available in terms of sheer ATK, and "Naturia Beast", which has a potent Spell Card lockdown. One Beast-type card, "Rescue Cat", was previously only truly useful for setting up Ojama fusions, but since the release of Synchro Monsters, it has become a near-invaluable staple card in by summoning a Beast-type Tuner Monster and another Beast for an immediate Synchro Summon. This strategy has been supported in Duelist Revolution with the inclusion of several cards used by Team Unicorn, where as their deck's are based on Synchro Summoning using mostly Beast monsters to summon their "Thunder Unicorn", "Voltic Bicorn", and "Lightning Tricorn", which are all Beast-type synchro monsters.

Archetypes include the Ojamas, Sphinx, the Koala monsters, and The Fabled sub-archetype. In addition, a good portion of the Crystal Beasts fall underneath this Type.

Some other respectable Beast-Type monsters are "Super-Nimble Mega Hamster", "Zeman the Ape King", "Earthbound Immortal Cusillu", "Green Baboon, Defender of the Forest", "Yellow Baboon, Archer of the Forest", "Bazoo the Soul-Eater", "Berserk Gorilla", "King Tiger Wanghu", "Outstanding Dog Marron", "Mosaic Manticore", "Behemoth the King of All Animals", "Rescue Cat", "Neo-Spacian Dark Panther" and "Voltic Kong".

Beast DecksEdit

Moja DeckEdit

A Moja deck is based around three TCG-Exclusive cards released in Raging Battle; "Moja", "King of the Beasts", and "Beast Striker". The idea is to have a King of the Beasts in the graveyard and continuously re-summoning Moja, so that King of the Beasts can continually revive itself no matter how many times it is destroyed. An example decklist can be found here.

For this deck, you can use cards such as:

Weenie BeastsEdit

This deck is based around swarming the field with beasts, mainly using Rescue Cat, and increasing their attack for an OTK. The deck is known as "Weenie" Beasts because, individually, most of the monsters in this deck have quite low attack.

Some suggestions of cards to use for this deck:

This deck can also be built using Royal Decree; just take out most of the traps and put these in.
