"Shining" (シャイニング Shainingu) is an archetype of LIGHT monsters used by Vector while under the guise of Ray Shadows in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime.

The archetypal "Shining" monsters used by "Ray" were the only Main Deck members of the archetype and featured a radically different style. These "Shining" monsters had a "two-faced" theme, appearing as fairly benign monsters being controlled or influenced by sinister-looking familiars or shadows. Their appearance is likely to have been based on Ray's duplicitous and manipulative nature. They had little cohesiveness gameplay-wise, but all had effects related to the manipulation of damage.
