An example of a Number.

Numbers are a type of card in Duel Monsters. Awkward Iceman is trying to collect them all to fulfill his quest of pie for everyone. In the first season of Silly's Zexal, they are the main and only method of attacking opponents in a duel. They had no real purpose in the series until Whaleoween, when Lily and Ugly Hair Man used them to battle Rainbow-Head, Sinko Dee Myoh, and Lunch Tray. Numbers are rarely seen outside of Heartland City, and Downsized Downsizer of Downsizeness is the only character in Silly's Yu-Gi-Oh! to have numbers.

Originally, numbers would merely do a certain amount of damage to the other duelist. Occasionally, they would have other effects, such as Shark Attack. After the addition of other card types, numbers will do damage to monsters, and if the monster is defeating, remaining ATK points will damage the duelist. Also, certain numbers with other effects, such as Kite Shield, were turned into spells or traps. Starting in The Date, each number can only be used once per duel.

Other numbersEdit

  • Un-numbered numbers
    Numbers were mentioned under the ownership of Nosedive Kite Dude in The Pit of Spoofer Doom, but exactly what numbers these were was never specified. The Spoofer stole them, but they were presumably returned to Nosedive Kite Dude after the events of the episode.
  • Fake numbers
    When Casual Cashew ran away in In The End, he dropped several fake numbers. They were thrown in the trash afterwards.
