| Race Category |
Race Category is an advanced grouping of races.
Certain cards refer to a common word that is included in the names of various races. This can include a race that includes the word exclusively or partially.
It should be noted that a Race Category isn't necessarily a race itself. For example, if you choose a race by the effect of Petrova, Channeler of Suns, you can't choose "Dragon" and increase the power of both Armored Dragon and Red Command Dragons. You also can't choose a word such as "Mecha" found on Great Mecha King or Mecha Del Sol that isn't found as an actual race.
However, if there is a race that has the same name as a Race Category, if you choose that race, you are able to extend the range of the effect to all races in that category. If you were to choose Outrage by the effect of Petrova, Channeler of Suns, you increase the power of all Outrage creatures, as well as Outrage MAX (and even Outrage OMG, Outrage Dragon, Outrage Wanko and Outrage Nyanko).
This Race Category is only applied to the text in the Race section of the Card Frame, not the Card Name. A card such as Three-Eyed Dragonfly or Dark Jios, Lord of Dark Dragons aren't treated as a dragon.
As this rule wasn't initially in the game until the 2015/9/25 rule change, there are few oddities featured on some cards. For example, Mantis Sword, Brute Insect has both the "Giant" and "Giant Insect" races. While this rarely has much gameplay impact, it causes 2 cards to be drawn with Shaman Totem.
- This also allows it to receive support from cards such as Kirino Giant or evolution creatures that weren't designed for Giant Insects.
If a card such as Sir Virginia, Mystic Light Insect refers to "that has the same race", it includes all the races included in that Race Category. Therefore, you can pseudo-Reanimate if the creature has a Dark Knightmare or Funky Knightmare race.
This Race Category system was expanded and designed around fully between Dragon Saga and Revolution Final blocks with the Invasion and Revolution Change abilities based on specific race categories, mainly Dragon, Command and Command Dragon. It also introduced various new races based on previous races such as Human Baku, Dark Knightmare or Cyber Virus Kai.
