Set Size 60
07/12/2013 Release and Legal Date
It’s time to hunt down some new Number Monsters for your collection – and for your Extra Deck!
Number Hunters is the single-biggest surge of new Xyz Monsters ever released at one time. This special, all-foil, 60-card booster set introduces 25 brand new Xyz Monsters, including 9 of the mysterious “Number” Monsters that so many characters are tracking down on the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL TV series.
You’ve seen Number Hunters on TV use these powerful Xyz Monsters in their Decks. Now you can do some Number Hunting of your own!
Number Hunters includes:
- 25 new Xyz Monsters
- 14 new Effect Monsters from Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL
- 6 new Spell/Trap Cards from the Zexal Age
- 5 new, non-Zexal cards, including some famous cards from the earliest days of the original TV series
- 10 previously-released Zexal cards, reprinted as foil cards for the first time ever
One of the most exciting things about this set is the number of Chaos Xyz Monsters! Chaos Xyz come in 2 varieties – “Number C” and “CXyz” (the “C” stands for Chaos both times).
Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy introduces you to a special Spell Card called Rank-Up-Magic Barian’s Force, the fastest way to turn ordinary Xyz Monsters into extraordinary “Number C” and “CXyz” monsters. Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy also included a small number of Chaos Xyz Monsters, but now Number Hunters gives you a whole army of them!
Work Hard, Play Hard
Rank-Up-Magic upgrades Xyz Monsters into “Number C” or “CXyz” monsters of the same Type, but 1 Rank higher. These super-charged Xyz Monsters are much stronger, get to steal an Xyz Material from an enemy monster, and if you rank-up using a ‘matching’ monster, they sometimes come with phenomenal cosmic powers!
Coach King Giantrainer has 2800 ATK and uses its Xyz Materials to let you draw extra cards and deal extra damage, but in return you have to skip your Battle Phase. But if you use Rank-Up Magic …
…you get CXyz Coach Lord Ultimatrainer! It has 3800 ATK, it can’t be targeted by card effects, and you don’t have to skip your Battle Phase to use its abilities, so just let loose!
Vote for Norito – Moral Leadership, Working for You
Duels not going well? Maybe it’s time for some proven leadership. It’s time for Norito the Moral Leader!
Your opponent’s Spells and Traps can be big threats to your monsters, even during your own turn. But Norito knows how to negate them, destroy them, and then lead the way forward with his 2700 Attack Points!
But during your opponent’s turn, the biggest threat to your monsters is often your opponent’s own monsters and their effects, which means it’s time to…
… hold an election! Wait, no, it’s time to play Rank-Up-Magic to replace Norito with his running mate, CXyz Simon the Great Moral Leader! Simon is a tough talker against the threat of monsters to society. He has 3000 ATK and isn’t affected by other monster effects. And if you Summoned him by ranking up Norito, he can switch a monster to defense position and negate its effects. Now that’s effective leadership!
Try using Gagaga Magician with either Gagaga Child or Gagaga Girl (from Super Starter: V for Victory) to get the 2 Level 6 Spellcasters you’ll need to Summon Norito.
These are just two of the Xyz/CXyz pairs you’ll find in Number Hunters! You’ll also find organic battlecruisers, comic book heroes, massive orbital weapons, and more!
The Hunt is On!
It’s time to go Number Hunting! Nine new Number monsters have crash landed, and it’s up to you to find them! Take on the invincible warrior king Number 54: Lion Heart, keep your eyes on the skies for the swift-striking Number 44: Sky Pegasus, and be wary of the whirling dervish of swords, Number 74: Master of Blades! Number monsters come in all shapes, sizes, and Ranks. They could be anywhere, so here’s a handy list to what to look out for!
|Number 44: Sky Pegasus
||Number 49: Fortune Tune
||Number 54: Lion Heart
||Number 57: Tri-Head Dust Dragon
||Number 63: Shamoji Soldier
|Number 74: Master of Blades
||Number 85: Crazy Box
||Number 87: Queen of the Night
On Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, the Number monsters are protected from other monsters by virtue of their alien origin. Now you can add that power to your Number monsters, with Number Wall!
As long as you control Number Wall, nothing can destroy your Number monsters – except battle with another Number monster, just like on TV!
Decks You Might Already Have
The Number Hunters booster set also includes many cards for Decks you might already be working on, like Chronomaly monsters, Gimmick Puppets, and Heroic Challengers.
Finally, keep your eyes open for Box of Friends. This cards lets you Special Summon 2 monsters with 0 ATK or 0 DEF from your Deck. It’s a great way to set up an Xyz Summon, especially if you make a Deck heavy on 0 DEF monsters, which will be a new strategy this August when Judgment of the Light comes out!
