An archetype-exclusion condition is a condition that specifies a card as not being part of an archetype when its printed name says it would be. This condition effectively has the opposite effect of an archetype condition.

These conditions are only found in the TCG, used in lieu of renaming a card, either due to the card being too well-known to rename, or the name being difficult to translate otherwise.
