"Statue" (スタチュー Sutachū) is an archetype of cards that appears exclusively in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime. They are EARTH Fairy versions of some of the more iconic cards from the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. All have the same ATK and DEF stats as their original counterparts, and each has effects that prevent themselves from attacking and that reduce their ATK and DEF to 0 while they are face-up on the field. This is circumvented by their support card, "Statue Zone", which negates those effects and also enables them to be Special Summoned from the hand for quick swarming of powerful monsters. As with many anime-only archetypes, this archetype has several TCG and OCG members that are otherwise unrelated, but that would theoretically be valid targets for "Statue Zone".

This archetype also includes the "Pendulumstatue" archetype.

This archetype shares many similarities to the "Malefic" archetype.
