[RIRA] Tianwei Style Martial Arts

It looks like we’re going for some Chinese style Martial Arts.

Note: The term Tianwei is Chinese for “Heavenly/Imperial Authority”, but based on the cards we’re taking it to be a style of martial arts, and often with martial arts, you don’t translate the style’s name, now, do you? No. So we’re leaving it in a Chinese style naming pattern.

Note 2: This theme’s ‘plotline’ will be revealed in V Jump!

Level 1 EARTH Wyrm Tuner Effect Monster

(2) If you control a non-Effect Monster: You can banish this card from your hand or GY, then target 1 of your banished Wyrm monsters, except this card; add it to your hand.

Note: This card’s name is a reference to Muladhara, the Chakra at the base of the spine that represents Earth, and is the foundation of one’s energy body. And is related to you know, the human buttocks and all the fun stuff related to that.

(2) If a non-Effect Monster(s) you control is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can banish this card from your hand or GY, then target 1 of those destroyed monsters; Special Summon it, then you can destroy 1 monster your opponent controls.

Note: This card’s name references Svadhishthana, the second bottom most Chakra, associated with taste and reproduction and the element of water. It is located in the Tail Bone roughly.

RIRA-JP014 Ten’iryuu – Manira (Tianwei Dragon Manira)

(2) When your opponent activates a card or effect that targets a non-Effect Monster(s) you control (Quick Effect): You can banish this card from your hand or GY; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card.

Note: This card’s name references the Manipura Chakra, located behind the Navel/Solar Plexus. It is associated with energy, digestion, sight and movement. It is naturally, a Chakra elementally associated with fire.

RIRA-JP015 Ten’iryuu – Nahata (Tianwei Dragon Nahata)
Level 4 WIND Wyrm Effect Monster

DEF 1000

Note: This card is named after Anahata, the Chakra associated with the Heart, and Wind. It’s very much associated with the hands and endocrine system.

RIRA-JP016 Ten’iryuu – Vishudda (Tianwei Dragon Vishudda)
Level 7 DARK Wyrm Effect Monster
ATK 1500
DEF 2500
You can only use the (1) and (2) effects of this card’s name once per turn each.
(1) If you control no Effect Monsters: You can Special Summon this card from your hand.
(2) If you control a non-Effect Monster: You can banish this card from your hand or GY, then target 1 card your opponent controls; return it to the hand.

Note: This card’s name is derived from the Vishuddha chakra, the Chakra located at the throat, and is associated with purification and the element of Akasha, i.e. Space/Aether or what is sometimes void. The likely point of this card being DARK is that when this chakra is closed, or mishandled, it leads to decay, death, and corruption.
