Solemn, known as God's ( (かみ) Kami no) in Japanese, is a series of Trap Cards whose artworks feature an old man with a divine, authoritative mien; some of the cards also feature one or more women, some of whom appear to be angels. All cards of this series are Counter Traps, except for the Continuous Traps "Solemn Wishes", and "Solemn Authority".

The Counter Trap Cards focus on negating Summons or activation of cards and effects, just like the majority of the cards of that variety, but all have in common the LP payment as cost. The Continuous Trap Cards don't have any feature in common (the Kanji "神の" makes them part of the series) and they have no direct relation of effects with one another or with the "Solemn" Counter Trap Cards.

"Ultimate Providence" is an unrelated Counter Trap card that features different artwork and cost, however, due to its Japanese name, it also inadvertently belongs in this series.

Solemn Wishes” also belongs to this series even though it has no relation effect wise, and also does not feature the Old Man from the other cards.

This series also has relation to “Condemned Maiden” and the “Forbidden” series.
