"Armed Dragon" (アームド・ドラゴン, Āmudo Doragon) is an archetype of WIND Dragon "LV" monsters used by Chazz Princeton. They were introduced in Soul of the Duelist and related to the "A-to-Z" series through "Armed Dragon Catapult Cannon" and the "Ojama" archetype through "Ojamatch" and "Ojama Pajama", a reference to Chazz having played the three alongside each other in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. A sub-archetype of the "LV" archetype, they are one of two groups of Dragon "LV" monsters, the other being the "Horus the Black Flame Dragon" series.

The majority of the archetype's members are WIND Dragon "LV" monsters. Originally a series, the archetype did not have support until "Duelist Pack: Legend Duelist 2" with the aforementioned "Ojamatch".

"Hardened Armed Dragon" is not part of the archetype due to its Japanese name, 「ハードアームドラゴン」, not containing 「アームド・ドラゴン」.

In the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime, Chazz Princeton obtains these cards while at North Academy, shortly after obtaining "Ojama Yellow, and uses them throughout many of his further appearances throughout the series.

Playing style

The original "Armed Dragon" series focused on sending cards from the hand to the Graveyard to destroy monsters on the field. Depending on the ATK of the monster sent, certain monsters could be destroyed while others were not. This is why cards that decrease your opponent's monsters attack, such as "Shrink" and "Burden of the Mighty" can be helpful. "Armed Dragon LV10", being the strongest, simply destroys all face-up monsters regardless of their ATK and any card could be sent from the hand to the Graveyard, rather than only monsters, as was the case with the lesser forms. This series is one of two "LV" Dragon series (the other being the "Horus the Black Flame Dragon" archetype).

"Dark Armed Dragon" is the Dark counterpart of "Armed Dragon LV7", capable of destroying multiple cards simply by banishing DARK monsters from the Graveyard. In the artwork of "Dracocension" it is shown that "Dark Armed Dragon" was transformed into "Metaphys Armed Dragon" by it, which is currently the only Wyrm member of the Armed Dragon archetype.
