Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki

"Battleguard", known as "Barbarian" (バーバリアン Bābarian) in the OCG, is an archetype of Warrior monsters used by Joey Wheeler in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and The Sledgehammer and Grizzlepike Jones in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V. One of the "Battleguards" originally belonged to Tristan Taylor, but he gave it to Joey before his Duel with Rex Raptor where he used it with his own "Battleguard" to defeat Rex's "Serpent Night Dragon" but they were then destroyed by "Red-Eyes Black Dragon".

Due to their Japanese name ("Barbarian"), the "Battleguard" group is a sub-archetype of "Barian".

All of their anime support that was released in the OCG was retooled to support Warrior monsters, making them an archetype only in the anime, until the release of "Battleguard Cadet".

Playing style

The most powerful "Barbarian" monsters are high-Level and focus on beatdown strategies, while the lower-Level ones and their support focus on making the Tribute Summon of the high-Level "Barbarian" monsters easier, by Special Summoning monsters, negating attacks or gaining control of opponent monsters.
