Original V Series CF ZERO

Gold Paladin Emblem

"Gold Paladin" (ゴールドパラディン Gōrudo Paradin) is a clan from the nation of United Sanctuary, and introduced in Trial Deck 5: Slash of Silver Wolf alongside Narukami. In the lore, the leader of this clan is Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel. The clan also has seven notable troops, known concurrently as the Gold Paladin Corps, as well as the Liberation army, and the wielders of the Bluish Flame Armaments from the past. In the events of the Cardfight!! Vanguard G series, the Knights of the Sun are a notable troop lead by their charismatic commander, known for his exceptional intelligence and security prowess.


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.

What is Gold Paladin? (Card of the Day 7th March 2016)

It is the Second Regular Army of the Holy Nation "United Sanctuary". In the past, it was established as the coalition of the Holy Knightly Order and the Shadow Knightly Order to liberate the sealed heroes. After the war, the knights of shadow, having liberated the Hero of Darkness, parted company with Gold Paladin, and Gold Paladin was reorganized into the Second Regular Army under the command of the King of Knights, and came to modern times. Their major missions are securing and protecting borders with contact with the neighbouring nations, holding investigation and expedition in the neighbouring nations, and relaying messages to the capital.

The Disassembly of the Investigation Unit, and the Establishment of the New Troop

Some time before the end of the civil war caused by "Shadow Paladin", the Special Investigation Unit was disassembled due to the severe injuries suffered by the captain, "Gurguit". Nevertheless, the achievement the Investigation Unit had made so far, and the high reputation of Gurguit, led to the decision of establishing a new troop centered around Gurguit. As the troop has just been established, its name hasn't been decided yet, but people call its members "Knights of the Sun" from the features of their armament. By the way, the troop received high expectation as the members are young elites, but they could not make achievement as expected, and the troop's reputation has been dropping gradually. It is rumoured that the disassembly of the new troop is being examined. What will the mentally stressed Gurguit become---


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 the Royal Paladin and Shadow Paladin clans. Naturally, the Gold Paladin's playstyle is a combination of its progenitors'. Most units emphasizes multiple call and empower (such as Ezel and the Liberators), while few others retire their owner's rear-guards to activate their effects (such as Spectral Duke Dragon and the Bluish Flame group of the Liberators).

Gold Paladin's search abilities is limited at a few cards from the top of the deck, somewhat restricted compared to its predecessors, who can search the entire deck, but gains the right to call anything from among them in turn. The original limit is only one card from the top of deck. The search limit is expanded during the Legion Mate Era, to three or four. And finally up to five during the G era. Regardless of the increased, only one unit may be called for each search, in general.

In Cardfight!! Vanguard G, specifically with the Gurguit archetype, the clan gained its keyword "Unite", which is fulfilled by their playstyle of multiple calls. The archetype also have an ability to superior call cards to (GC) for further defense, and the call (including other normal calls) count towards "Unite".
