"Gold Paladin" (ゴールドパラディン Gōrudo Paradin) is a clan from the United Sanctuary nation, first introduced in Trial Deck 5: Slash of Silver Wolf, and was revealed at the same time as Narukami.

After both the Royal Paladins and the Shadow Paladins were sealed away in the events leading to the War of Liberation, the Gold Paladins were created by the remaining members of Royal Paladin and Shadow Paladin clans. Naturally, the Gold Paladin's play style is a combination of its progenitors'. Some units gain benefits from having a high number of rear-guards or give rear-guards high amounts of power (e.g. Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel, Liberator, Monarch Sanctuary Alfred), while others retire their owner's rear-guards to activate their effects (e.g. Bluish Flame Liberator, Prominence Glare, Spectral Duke Dragon). It also focuses on superior calling units from the deck to help meet these conditions. Originally, Gold Paladin superior calls were limited to top-decking, but this was improved upon in Legion Mate to the point where you have the top three to five cards of the deck to choose from. In the newer generation, some units (such as Sunrise Ray Knight, Gurguit) can also superior call units into the guard zone.

Aichi Sendou, Ren Suzugamori, and Takuto Tatsunagi use this clan during the season 2. Aichi continues to use this clan in season 3, now focused on the Liberators sub-clan. Olivier Gaillard uses this clan during season 4. During his first appearance, Olivier uses Aichi's deck, with Bluish Flame Liberator, Percival replacing Blaster Blade Liberator as Olivier's avatar. For the duration of the season, Olivier's deck becomes increasingly focused on the Bluish Flame series.

Yuya Karasumori uses this clan once in Cardfight!! Vanguard G and having Locus Liberator, Asclepius as his main grade 3. Taiyou Asukawa uses this clan in the same series with Sunrise Ray Knight, Gurguit as his avatar.


Who are the Gold Paladin?

Originally a rag-tag team of creatures who would normally be sworn enemies, brought together by the threat of annihilation, this clan has become a disciplined army of the United Sanctuary. Wielding the power of light in one hand and the power of darkness in the other, the Gold Paladin will defend the Sanctuary to the finish.

What is the Shadow Paladin Investigation Unit?

A faction of the Gold Paladin created to investigate reports of havoc being wreaked by the Shadow Paladin, specifically the clique led by the nefarious Claret Sword Dragon. Led by Gurguit, one of the Gold Paladin's strongest, the unit arrested many Shadow Paladin within in a short period of time. However, this made Gurguit the target of Claret Sword Dragon.
