"Celestial", known as "Heavenly Halo" ( (てん) (りん) Tenrin) in the Japanese version, is an archetype of cards used by Rex Goodwin in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's manga.


All members of the archetype have a large halo in their backs, and their bodies have a robotic-looking angelic appearace. Their names are composed of "Celestial (occupation)".

Playing style

The members of this archetype focus on swarm and lockdown tactics. Cards like "Celestial Undertaker" and "Celestial Bowman" swarm low Level monsters in order to Synchro Summon low-Level Synchro Monsters, ultimately swarming up the field with "Celestial Double Star Shaman" for Synchro Summons up to Level 10. Goodwin uses this archetype with his "Celestial Conquering Dragon - Drago Ascension", using the latter's last effect and "Celestial Bell Tower" in order to create a loop, protecting "Ascension" from destruction and Summoning it back while drawing more cards.
