Each card is named after a Shogi piece or move. The monsters' names are puns involving the Japanese name of the piece, and their appearances consist of the piece they are based mixed with elements of the words their pun is made of (check individual card's trivia for more information).
In the manga, the "Shogi" cards had effects based on a card's position on the field. They focused mainly on destruction effects to annihilate the opponent monsters, using "Line World Revival" afterwards to revive the opponent's monster and further corner them.
