* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler: Luard was originally born from the mana of Gyze, a GodOfEvil, created to be Gyze's vessel, and suffered terribly during his childhood. But despite this, the love and affection Dagda showed him was able to give him a heart and hope.]]




to:

!!Dragfencer, Dagda
-> Remember. You are not alone.

A knight of the Shadow Paladins who adopted Luard and served as a brotherly figure to him. Dagda's murder at the hands of Shiranui sent Luard on a fanatical quest for vengeance. [[spoiler: In truth, he was murdered by Gastille, who used Domination to frame Shiranui for the murder in order to guide Luard back to his destiny of being Gyze's vessel. Dagda's soul was trapped within Void Relics, but was released by a miraculous light of hope, reuniting with Luard long enough to impart his final words.]]

!!!Tropes:
* BrilliantButLazy: Despite his incredible skill with the blade and Dragshift magic, Dagda was known for being apathetic and showing no enthusiasm for anything until he adopted Luard.
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler: "Because of you, I noticed the value of protecting someone."]]
* MagicKnight: Dagda incorporated Dragshift magic into his fighting style alongside his swordsmanship, hence his title.
* MasterSwordsman: Dagda was renowned in his time for his skill with the sword.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: Luard's quest for revenge begins with Dagda's death.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: [[spoiler: Dagda unknowingly adopted what was essentially a fragment of the setting's equivalent of ''the Devil'', and through the kindness and compassion he showed Luard, he managed to derail the plans of Gyze and Gastille.]]
* YouAreNotAlone: Invoked by his card's flavor text.

[[folder: Messiah]]
A powerful god of creation and positive emotions, Messiah is the BigGood of the ''Vanguard'' setting, embodying the antithesis of the Void and its master Gyze. In ancient times, Messiah waged war against Gyze in "The Cataclysm", calling countless warriors of light to its cause to fight against its enemy's Zeroth Dragons and Apostles. After a long and arduous struggle, Messiah was victorious, casting Gyze down and imprisoning it.

this new faction of Link Joker.



* DeusExMachina: Given Harmonics' incredible power and divine nature, it's likely that its appearance via Stride is meant to evoke this.
* LightIsGood
* MeaningfulName: The Harmonics part of its name is clearly derived from 'Harmony', reflecting how it belongs to all Clans and Nations at once.
** Stride is written with kanji that literally mean 'transcendence', reflecting Harmonics Messiah's status as a divine entity.
* MessianicArchetype: In more than name, it is the first card in the game which is in every Clan at once.
* OlympusMons
* OrderVersusChaos: Alluded to by its flavor text.

to:

* DeusExMachina: Given Harmonics' incredible power and BigGood: Messiah is the representation of all that is good in the world.
* CCGImportanceDissonance: Messiah received perhaps the most lackluster representation of any major lore figure in the setting, particularly given its
divine nature, it's likely that nature: its appearance via Stride is meant to evoke this.

* EvilCounterpart: To Messiah.

to:

* BrightIsNotGood: In his true form, Gyze is a pure white mecha-dragon, but it's a god of destruction which seeks to annihilate everything.
* EvilCounterpart: To Messiah.Messiah, being the god of negative emotion and destruction to its positive emotion and creation. It's taken further by their card incarnations, with both possessing a "Neon" starter Vanguard form.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The teaser text given for Gyze's card incarnation was "Overturning the common sense of Vanguard". One of Gyze's defining features is that he's a ''double-sided'' card that turns over from Neon Gyze to Dragon Deity of Destruction, Gyze.

* BadassCreed: A recurring line spoken by his Apostles [[spoiler: and Gyze himself while Diffriding Kazuma]] is "The world will be silent!", a perfect description of Gyze's ultimate end.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: To even play Gyze, you need to have scored 5 triggers throughout the entire fight, and used his skill as Neon Gyze to bind 5 Zeroth Dragons from the G-Zone. His base form as Neon Gyze is also lacking Forerunner and does not increase any of your unit's power with triggers while face-up in the G-Zone, so you'll suffer defensively and offensively until it's time to play Gyze without a deck dedicated entirely to it. But if you get him out, he's a 30k power Vanguard that no normal deck would be able to even SCRATCH, is immune to almost all card effects along with the Zeroth Dragons, protects the rear-guards by making them unable to be attacked, and can [[InstantWinCondition give the opponent one turn before they lose]].


Added DiffLines:

* InstantWinCondition: When your turn starts, he automatically deals one damage to the opponent for every Zeroth Dragon rear-guard you have. Not enough to end the game ''unconditionally'' but damn well close enough.

Added DiffLines:

** Megiddo calls units from the hand (Bermuda Triangle) and drop zone (Granblue), and gives them the ability to switch places with another rear-guard after attacking (Aqua Force).
** Drachma retires all of your opponent's units (Kagero and Narukami), binds the retired cards (Narukami and Nubatama) and forces your opponent to discard cards from their hand (Nubatama).
** Zoa's ability to set a unit's Power to 99999 is inspired by the high-power rear-guard tactics of Neo Nectar and Great Nature.
** Stark's ability to attack multiple times without resting combines the restanding style of Nova Grapplers with the high-power Vanguard tactics of Dimension Police.
** Ultima calls cards from the deck (a combination of all three Paladin clans) and stacks cards on top of the deck (Oracle Think Tank and Genesis).
