The "Salamangreat" monsters are based on fiery themed animals. And while the Main Deck members appear to be based on small and average-sized animals, the Extra Deck monsters are based on the largest and most majestic of the animal kingdom. Much like Yusaku's animal-based Cyberse monsters, "Salamangreat" are armored with a cyberspace design, also they have a hot-red tint spread over their bodies and are constantly emitting flames.
Salamangreat is a portmanteau of the words "Salamandra" and "Great". The members of the archetype are named after various, likely symbolic, fiery animals.
"Salamangreat" (転生炎獣) can be translated as "Reincarnated Flame Beast", which is linked to the archetypes's style and philosophy.
