Royal Paladin Emblem


Royal Paladin units used by Aichi Sendou in the Cardfight!! Vanguard Anime

"Royal Paladin" (ロイヤルパラディン Roiyaru Paradin) is a clan from the United Sanctuary nation. Their primary focus is in superior calling units from the deck and gaining benefits from having many rear-guards and/or giving the rearguards high amounts of power. Starting from Cardfight!! Vanguard G, the clan has a stronger focus on superior calling grade 2 rear-guards. The introduction of the Brave Keyword adds hand manipulation to the clans playstyle with brave cards activating certain abilities and power boosts when the player has three or less cards in hand.

Aichi Sendou uses this clan in the manga and in season 1 of the anime, aside from the time he used Shadow Paladins while under the influence of PSY Qualia. In season 2, the Royal Paladins were sealed along with Shadow Paladin and Kagerō, causing Aichi to switch to Gold PaladinsKourin Tatsunagi also uses Royal Paladin; she uses a Fang of Light, Garmore deck in season 1 and a Jewel Knights deck in season. Toshiki Kai uses this clan in season 4, focused on the Seekers sub-clan. Daigo also uses Royal Paladin; in season 2 he uses a White Dragon Knight, Pendragon deck with Soul Saver Dragon while being trapped in a space-time warp, then he uses the Sanctuary Guard Dragon deck in season 3, and in Cardfight!! Vanguard G: GIRS Crisis his deck focused on the Sanctuary Guard archetype.

In Cardfight!! Vanguard Movie: Neon Messiah, Aichi Sendou uses a deck similar to Kai's Royal Paladin deck, with Light Source Seeker, Alfred Exiv replacing Seeker, Thing Saver Dragon as his ace unit. In Cardfight!! Vanguard G, Shion Kiba and Akane Kiyosu both use Royal Paladin decks.
