"Assault Blackwing", known as "Assault Black Feather" ( (アサルト) BF (ブラックフェザー) Asaruto Burakku Fezā) in the Japanese version, is an archetype of DARK Winged Beast monsters, as well as a sub-archetype of the "Blackwing" archetype. They are used by Crow Hogan in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. With the exception of "Assault Blackwing - Kunai the Drizzle", all members of this sub-archetype are Synchro Monsters.



Like the original "Blackwing" monsters, the "Assault Blackwing" monsters resemble either humanoid birds or humanoids in bird-like outfits. Additionally, the "Assault Blackwing" monsters have a half-mechanical appearance to them.


The "Assault Blackwing" monsters are named after legendary Japanese weapons and given a title relating to rain.

Playing style

"Assault Blackwing" monsters tend to treat themselves as Tuner monsters if they are Special Summoned by using at least 1 "Blackwing" monster (either as a Tribute for the Main Deck members, or as a Synchro Material for the Synchro members), allowing their user to quickly gather up the total Levels needed to Summon powerful Synchro Monsters.
