The Plant Princesses[1] are a series of Level 8 female Plant monsters with different Attributes and 2800 ATK or DEF. The first member of the series ("Tytannial, Princess of Camellias") was released in Crossroads of Chaos, then more members came in the Judgment of the Light, Shadow Specters and Legacy of the Valiant sets.

The Japanese names, specifically the "titles" of the princesses, are puns based on various readings of the word for "princess", formed in a fashion similar to that of the names of the Yo-kai Girls. All monsters in this archetype are alraunes.

Tytannial, Princess of Camellias WIND Titania Camellia

Playing style

Their strategy relies on protecting Plant monsters from being destroyed by battle or against card effects.

  • "Talaya" protects other Plants against card effects that would destroy them.
  • "Chirubimé" protects all other Plant monsters from attacks and can replace itself with another Princess if it is sent to the Graveyard by your opponent.
  • "Tytannial" negates any effect that targets your monsters, by the cost of a Tribute.
  • "Mariña" punishes your opponent for destroying one of your Plants.

As usual, "Lonefire Blossom" is the quickest way to bring the "Princesses" to the field. "Cherry Inmato" and "Rose Witch" can also be used as the required tributes for Tribute Summon while cards like "Lord Poison" and "Blue Rose Dragon" can Special Summon them from Graveyard. During your turn, "Periallis, Empress of Blossoms" and "Miracle Fertilizer" can also Special Summon them from the Graveyard as well.

If the player wishes to Summon "Number 87: Queen of the Night", three princesses are required. One can also use the effect "Xyz Dimension Splash" to quickly Special Summon 2 "Talaya", Summon "Copy Plant" and use its effect to easily Xyz Summon this card.

Recommended cards

Lightsworn Plant Princess

The Lightsworn Plant Princess is made by using the effect of "Lightsworn" monsters to mill the princesses from the Deck, then Special Summon them from the Graveyard.


While the "Princesses" are fairly powerful, they also possess some weaknesses:

  • "Talaya" cannot protect itself and is susceptible of being destroyed if there is only one copy of it on the field.
  • "Chirubimé" is vulnerable to cards that can remove it from the field without sending it to the Graveyard, such as "Bottomless Trap Hole", "Virgil, Rockstar of the Burning Abyss", "Dark Core" etc
  • "Mariña" effect doesn't activate if multiple monsters are destroyed at once and requires itself to be on the field for the effect to resolve, which makes it vulnerable to "Book of Moon", "Compulsory Evacuation Device", etc, if those cards are chained to its effect activadion.
  • "Tytannial" requires a Plant monster to be used as Tribute in order to negate a targeting effect, which also makes its effect useless if it is the only monster under its owner's control. The fact it only negates targeting also makes it vulnerable to cards like "Raigeki". "Black Garden" can be used to provide tokens as Tribute fodder, however.

All of them are Level 8 and unless "Lonefire Blossom", "Gigaplant", "Rose Lover" are used to Special Summon them or if they are not used as cost for "Trade-In" they could easily be dead draws.

The variety of Attributes also makes them vulnerable to "Gozen Match".


  • "Number 87: Queen of the Night" shares a strong physical resemblance with the four "Plant Princesses", any of which can be used to Xyz Summon it.
    • Also, this card is a "Queen" while "Tytannial, "Talaya", "Chirubime" and "Mariña" are "Princesses".
  • The Japanese name of "Number 87: Queen of the Night", "Numbers 87: Beautiful Goddess of the Four Seasons - Queen of Nights" implies that, if it is included with the princesses, this family may be intended to symbolize the four seasons as follows.
    • "Tytannial" represents Winter, as many Camellia species also bloom in mid to late winter, which is a season also known for strong winds.
    • "Talaya" represents Spring, since it is WATER Attribute and Spring is typically a rainy season. In addition, the flower it is based off, the Cherry Blossom, blooms in Spring– around April– when Cherry Blossom Festivals are typically held.
    • "Mariña" represents Summer, given that it is FIRE attribute, and Summer is universally the hottest season. In addition, Sunflowers are the only flower featured in the princesses' artwork that blooms in Summer.
    • "Chirubimé" represents Autumn, as its name explicitly calls it "Princess of Autumn Leaves." Furthermore, it is EARTH-Attribute, and Autumn is associated with the harvest season. In addition, the plant it is based upon is the Maple Tree, whose leaves undergo a vivid spectrum of color changes in autumn.
