Ryoga's Deck is a WATER/Fish Deck consisting of monstrous looking sea creatures such as various races of sharks and arthropods. He utilizes a Burn strategy in order to quickly gain the advantage through cards such as "Submersible Carrier Aero Shark" and "Explosive Urchin", with a focus on using Level 3 monsters to Xyz Summon Rank 3 Xyz Monsters. His ace monster is "Black Ray Lancer"[1].

After his duel with III, Shark obtained one of his Numbers for himself, now owning Number 32: Marine Biting Dragon - Shark Drake.
