"Purgatory Knights" (れんごくだん Rengoku Kishidan) is a series of 《Armordragon》/《White Dragon》 monsters with "Purgatory Knights" in its card name.

Lore

The ciphers, when put together, tells this story of the Purgatory Knights.

0. The Purgatory Knights went on an expedition to the demonic world. They did not realize then that they would come to cross swords with the next generation of knights that will succeed their will.

1. Long ago, a door leading to the Dragon World opened, allowing demonic creatures to pour out from the Darkness Dragon World, plunging the world into a state of chaos.

2. To disperse the army of the demon realm, the mightiest warriors of the Dragon World, the Purgatory Knights, struck down the demon army and, charged into the demon realm. Once they broke through, they sealed the gates shut from within.

3. And so after, to prevent the gate of the demon realm from opening again, the "Purgatory Knights" stood guard. Cursed with a never aging body, they fight continuously to protect their homeland.

4. And now is the time to return. Assemble under this flag! The hopeless souls of berserkers, the Purgatory Knights!"

After the Purgatory Knights' disappearance, the Thunder Knights were founded to honor them. Their existence appears to have faded into myths among Dragon World, however some older monsters such as El Quixote still know about them and their technique of sacrificing each other for power called the Purgatory Curse, and they seem to take being sacrificed with pride. Some Purgatory Knights such as Death Sickle are still in Dragon World, however they seem to be unaware of what happened to the members that left to Darkness Dragon World.

Playstyle

Unlike other Darkness Dragon World decks' standard playstyle of ignoring/destroying the opponent's defenses, Purgatory Knights revolve around destroying their own monsters or cards with "Purgatory Knights" in its card name to make use of their abilities. Some cards also compensate this destruction through either drawing cards or adding other Purgatory Knights to your hand, or other beneficial effect.
