"G unit" (Ｇユニット Ji Yunitto) is a type of unit. Currently, all G units are grade 4. Unlike normal units and trigger units, G units are placed in the G deck during deck construction, which can contain up to 16 cards, with a maximum of 4 copies of a card by name.
The appearance of a G unit card differs based on its mechanic:
- G units with Stride have a red card frame and no shield value.
- G units with G guardian have a green card frame, an elaborate box for their shield value and a "G-GUARDIAN" label in place of power and critical values.
- During setup, a player's G deck is placed face down as his or her G zone. The G deck need not be shuffled; a player may view the face-down cards in his or her G zone at any time.
- G units cannot be normal rode nor normal called. Instead, they have procedures which allow themselves to be placed on the field.
- During a game, cards in a player's G zone may be placed face up. The face-up cards in each player's G zone are public information.
- A G unit card can only be in the G zone or on a circle on the field. If a G unit would be put into another zone, that G unit is instead returned to the G zone face up. In addition, if a G unit would be flipped face down while on a circle (except by being deleted), it is also instead returned to the G zone face up.
