"Topologic" (トポロジック Toporojikku) is an archetype (series in the anime) of DARK Cyberse Link Monsters used by Ryoken Kogami (Varis) and Pandor in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS. With the exception of "Topologic Trisbaena", all of its members are Link-4 monsters with 3000 ATK. They also all specifically require 2+ Effect Monsters to be Link Summoned.


In mathematics, topology is the study of the properties of space that are preserved under continuous deformations.

Network topology refers to the arrangement of elements in a communication network, such as links and nodes. This most likely references how the Topologics are Cyberse Link Monsters whose effects activate when linked.

Playing style

"Topologic" monsters usually involve mass removal of cards whenever a monster is Special Summoned to a Zone a Link Monster points to. In addition, they inflict heavy effect damage.

  • The Topologics and their sister archetype, the Topologina, are the only Cyberse monsters in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS to not ultimately be in the service of an Ignis. In, fact they outright join the Knights of Hanoi in killing the Ignis. Whether their anti-Ignis behavior is influenced by Varis in anyway is unknown.
