Kai Narukami

"Narukami" (なるかみ Narukami) is a clan from the Dragon Empire. They were first introduced in Trial Deck 6: Resonance of Thunder Dragon. Like Kagerō, Narukami focuses on retiring the opponent's rear-guards. However, while Kagerō has a defensive, pressure-based playstyle, Narukami has an offensive playstyle, as many of their cards involve preventing the opponent's rear-guards from intercepting, retiring front-row rearguards, and gaining large amounts of power and critical, Meaning, Narukami is more focused on high-risk abilities than Kagero. In Vanguard G, Narukami has a bit more of a Nubatama-esque playstyle, with cards that can bind cards permanently. They also received a new clan specific keyword skill, "Thunderstrike".

Toshiki Kai and Taishi Miwa used the Narukami clan for the entirety of Season 2 of the anime after the Kagero clan (along with the Royal Paladin and Shadow Paladin clans) were sealed away. Toshiki Kai continued to use this clan until early Season 3, when he switched to Link Joker and later back to Kagerō in Season 4. Naoki Ishida also used the Narukami clan in Season 3, and Season 4, focusing first on the Eradicators and later on the Brawlers.

In Cardfight!! Vanguard G, Takeru Baba uses Eradicators, while Ryutaro Oyama, the "Narukami Clan Leader" uses Vanquisher. In Cardfight!! Vanguard G: NEXT, Henri Hayao also uses a Narukami deck based around Vanquisher.
