Nova Grappler Emblem

The Nova Grappler (ノヴァグラップラー Nova Gurappurā) is a clan from the nation of Star Gate. First introduced in Booster Set 1: Descent of the King of Knights. Lore-wise, the Nova Grapplers are a participant in the "Nova Grapple", a fully free fighting sport.

Kamui Katsuragi uses this clan in both the anime and manga. Nagisa Daimonji also uses this clan in the anime.


What is Nova Grappler?

Pro fighters have gathered from around the globe to participate in this event. As all weapons, spells, and modifications are allowed, no one is really sure whether this is a no-holds-barred competition or a battlefield anymore. Most of the participants are machines, but there are other types of participants as well. The Nova Grapple is also one of Star Gate's main sources of tourism.

Extreme Battlers and Exxtreme Battlers

Recently, the number of young kid fans of Nova Grapple is increasing drastically. To amuse these adorable guests, a certain team develops series of robos---the "Extreme Battlers" and the reinforced "Exxtreme Battlers". The heroically fighting "Exxtreme Battlers" win popularity among both adults and kids, while the "Extreme Battlers", who have comical looks and fight merrily, attract the eyesight of younger children.

What is Nova Grappler? (Card of the Day 20th April 2016)

It is a group of pro fighters with global popularity. Their activities have become a great source of tourism income of "Star Gate". Nova Grapple accepts participants from all races, and all weapons, spells, and modifications are allowed. Although many participants are machines, but there are also superhumans who can fight with machines equally, and aliens from other planets. Their fights go beyond the common senses of ordinary combat sports. Their fights are not limited to ground, and seas and the space are also their rings to be fought on mobile weapons.


Nova Grappler fully focuses on Standing for a successive attack, and gains more power from Stand. Many of their cards can Stand after an attack, and some wil gain more power. Their Keyword Rush, which activates when they [Stand] due to an effect or Trigger, is a symbol to this playstyle.

The Death Army and Asura Kaisers focuses on Dive Check and reveal a grade 3 so they would [Stand] themselves and little bit of other cards.

The Beast Deity also focuses on Drive Check, this one requiring any grade 1 or greater among them.
