¡Alebrije! is an Archetype of Flip monsters with various Types, Attributes and Levels. They focus on Flip effects, Fusion Monsters and battle mechanics. All monsters have an effect that makes it so any monster they battle is unable to attack or activate their effects, locking your opponent's field down with useless monsters, which is also their main playstyle, as their Field Spell ¡Alebrije! World protect them from being destroyed in battle, as well as giving them a second attack and attack directly. In other words, you run into an opponent's monster and then get to attack directly afterwards. That's not all though, as they have two other cards that help this work even better, Creation and Obsession. Along with this, you have their Fusion Monsters, which help both bring out the two former cards, as well as having effects that make their Flip mechanics easier, as well as their ramming tactics work even better. They are intended to work with Polymerization, as many of their effects are able to fetch it, and they have a gimmick that makes you instantly able to Fusion Summon with it while ¡Alebrije! World is on the field.
 
The Archetype name comes from the word Alebrije, which are Mexican sculptures and supposed mythical creatures, which have brightly colors and weird creatures, typically animals that are fantastical, and if you have never seen them before, they look amazing. The reason for the inverted exclamation mark is for two reasons, the first being that I thought it was cute to reference the way Mexican (and other Spanish speaking countries) write an exclamation, and that it sounds like "Wow, that's an Alebrije!", and the other reason being that it makes it easier to search for them on Duel Portal, in case others were to use the name. I was first introduced to them when watching Coco and knew I had to make an Archetype based on them one day, but it took a while until I found out what I wanted to do with them, and the concept got really weird really quick, but I think that the final concept is both a lot of fun and fits the theme of their unknown origins quite well.
