Template:Infobox archetype

"F.A.", short for "Formula Athletes" (F.A. (フォーミュラアスリート) Fōmyura Asurīto) is an archetype of WIND Machine monsters. It is one of two TCG-exclusive archetypes to debut in Code of the Duelist[1][2], the other being "Vendread".

Design

The archetype is based on a futuristic motor racing theme, with some elements referencing the Speed Racer franchise.
