Beast-Warrior (Japanese: (じゅう) (せん) () ) is a Type of monster that usually resembles anthropomorphic animals or other half-man, half-animal creatures such as centaurs. Their effects generally apply after destroying a monster, and help them destroy monsters more easily. Many of their effects also deal with Normal Monsters. However, a lot of their effects tend to give an advantage during battle, like "Exarion Universe" and "Enraged Battle Ox". Devon Knox's Main Deck in Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL is primarily composed of these monsters, while Celina uses them in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V.

Beast-Warrior are neither Beast nor Warrior-Type monsters, so they are not affected by effects that specifically affect Beast or Warrior-Type monsters (though occasionally, support cards for either will also specifically include Beast-Warriors, such as "Enraged Battle Ox").

"Phantom Beast" was the only primarily Beast-Warrior archetype until 2012. Cosmo Blazer saw the release of the "Fire Fist" archetype, which also included a potent searcher for Beast-Warriors; "Fire Formation - Tenki". From that point on Beast-Warriors have remained consistently powerful; the "Lunalight", "Zoodiac" and "Ancient Warriors" archetypes would later follow in coming years. Some can be also found in the "Gladiator Beast", "X-Saber" and "Yosenju" archetypes. Other notable monsters include "Reborn Tengu", "XX-Saber Gottoms", "Manticore of Darkness", "Mystical Knight of Jackal", "Cat's Ear Tribe", "Chiron the Mage", "Exarion Universe", "Ghost Knight of Jackal", "Enraged Battle Ox", "Pitch-Black Warwolf", "Indomitable Fighter Lei Lei", "Lycanthrope", "Shiba-Warrior Taro", "Mother Grizzly", "Beast King Barbaros", "Panther Warrior", and "Thor, Lord of the Aesir".

In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Falsebound Kingdom, Beast-Warrior-Type monsters are treated as Warrior-Type monsters. Like the Thunder-Type, the Beast-Warrior-Type gains advantage from the two Field Spell Cards that increase the ATK and DEF of monster-Types; "Sogen" and "Forest".
