Template:Infobox Archetype Victory is an archetype of creatures featured between the Episode 1 and Dragon Saga blocks, and is featured in the DMR, DMD (DMD-18 and DMD-19 onwards) and DMX series of booster packs.
One or two Victory Creatures are included in each of the main and peripheral sets, except for the DMD line and DMX-01 through DMX-03, which contain no Victory cards. Victory cards have a collector number that is listed before a set's super rare (S) cards and they begin with a V, for example (V1/V1 on the unawakened card face, and V1b/V1 on the awakened card face).
This card rarity features a stylized =V= () in place of the mana value symbol on the unawakened Victory Creature's card face, otherwise the symbol is placed under the awakened creature's race line. Like Super Rare cards, these creatures feature artwork that passes through the card frame.
Cards that feature the card rarity are considered to be a Victory cards. Each psychic creature with the Victory Rare card rarity is also part of a Psychic Super Creature. If both sides of a Victory card contain a mana cost, the unawakened side of a Victory Creature is the card face without the Psychic Cell indicator and with the lower cost. The awakened side of a Victory card is almost always the topmost psychic cell of a Psychic Super Creature, which contains the Psychic Super Creature's cost, name, race(s), and Victory symbol.
Each of the Victory creatures are featured heavily throughout the Duel Masters Victory anime season and are used by protagonists and antagonists alike.
In Episode 2 it is also shown that the Victory Rare creatures will be appearing on the new Zero Civilization cards and more races like Human, Unknown and Zenith. However, all the Victory Rare cards in Episode 2 are either of the Fire or Zero Civilization.
After the Episode 1 to Episode 3 block of sets ended, Victory creatures continued in the Dragon Saga block. In this new block they appeared with a new rarity type; Double Victory. This new card rarity Victory Rare symbol appears twice on the card (A small symbol is on the top of the card while a large is on the bottom of the card). The card number also uses VV1/VV1 instead of only V1/V1. So far this new rarity of cards has only featured on Dragheart Weapons / Dragheart Creatures.
