Signature move is a series of Spell and Trap Cards, as well as retrained monsters, whose names reflect the attack or effect names of monsters used in the anime or manga. Their effects usually specify a full monster name, although archetype names are sometimes used. Most of these cards require the monster with the listed name to be on the field.
Cards whose names are the same as the names of attacks or effects conducted by the key monster while it was affected by that card in the anime/manga do not count as members of this series. As such, this excludes cards such as "Neos Force" and "Terra Firma Gravity".
- Signature move names tend to vary between the original Japanese anime and the English dub. In these cases, Konami favors the English dub to better reflect its market audience. However, some cards do not match this localization.
- Cosmic Crush ("Wrath of Neos")
- Cyber Energy Shock ("Psychic Wave")
- Mechanized Melee ("Ancient Gear Golem - Ultimate Pound")
- Strident Blast ("Evolution Burst")
- White Lightning ("Burst Stream of Destruction")
- The retrained monsters were created to honor episodes that won favourite duel polls in Shueisha's V Jump magazine for each Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series.
