"Satellite" (サテライト Sateraito) is a series of LIGHT Machine monsters with 0 ATK that were introduced in GameBoy Duel Monsters Promos: Series 8. This series focuses on increasing their ATK/DEF during their controller's End Phases, and their ATK/DEF decreases to 0 after attacking (or, in the case of "Satellite Base", after being attacked). With the exception of "Satellite Laser Balsam", all members of this series are Effect Monsters with 0 DEF and share an effect of being indestructible in battle against monsters within a certain Level range. The main card of this series is "Satellite Cannon", as it is the only card from that series released while the rest appear only in the anime and video games.

Leichter used "Satellite Cannon" against Seto Kaiba in Yu-Gi-Oh!, while Prince Ojin used it and its support against Sartorius and Jaden Yuki in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX.
