Nubatama Emblem

"Nubatama" (ぬばたま) is a clan from the nation of Dragon Empire, and based on ninjas. The first four Nubatama cards, initially released in Booster Set 1: Descent of the King of Knights, were focused on effects forcing the opponent to discard, and increasing their own power if their owner has more cards in hand than his opponent. After this, no more Nubatama cards were released until Booster Set 13: Catastrophic Outbreak, where they were more focused on binding the opponent's cards in their hand and field but returning them to the owner's hand during the end phase, with some cards capable of sending cards from bind zone to drop zone.

Their unique keyword is "Afterimage".

Ninja Master M uses this clan in the anime. Kyou Yahagi also uses this clan in the manga; however, four of his cards became a new clan, Murakumo, when they were released in the Extra Booster: Comic Style Vol. 1. Kazumi Onimaru from Cardfight!! Vanguard G: NEXT also uses this clan.


What is Nubatama? (Card of the Day, 18th December 2015)

It is the Espionage Corp of "Dragon Empire", the militant nation of the dragons. Its members are experts who master the unique martial arts and dark arts passed in the eastern territory of the Empire. Their main mission is intelligence collection and spying. Led by black dragons said to be born from darkness itself, the corps is relentless, not hesitant of self-sacrifice if ordered. To them, "accomplishment of missions" is more important than their lives.
