The name "Blood Moon", alongside its sister archetype, "Crimson Eclipse", are based off the red glow the moon gives off when seen on Earth during a lunar eclipse, relating to their owner, Luna.
This archetype's focus is to easily gather materials or Tributes to Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, or Ritual Summon. Supported by its sister archetype, "Crimson Eclipse" to add consistency to the Deck, this Deck supports Dragon-Type Pendulum Monsters, most notably, its other sister archetype, "Rift Beast". A large portion of the monster effects focus on swarming the field with monsters or searching other members. Because a few monsters can banish themselves to activate effects, the current "Rift Beast" Pendulum Monsters can be used to recycle them, thus it is recommended to use both archetypes together as intended. With the release of "Ancient Spirit of the Crimson Eclipse" in Luna's Deck: Descent of the Moonlight Dragon, the Deck can now place used Pendulum Scales back into the Pendulum Zone or combo with "Foolish Burial". The Deck can also notably use the Impure mechanic relatively easily due to the easy access of high Level monsters. As powerful as this Deck is however, it does not come without a drawbacks or weaknesses. Many of the members destroy themselves, though this can be taken advantage of with cards like "Supply Squad" and the monsters can be recycled with the aforementioned "Ancient Spirit of the Crimson Eclipse". Another drawback is that it can lose hand advantage rather quickly if played recklessly.
This archetype's relation with "Rift Beast" is similar to the relation between the "Magician", "Odd-Eyes", and "Performapal" archetypes.
This archetype's relation with "Crimson Eclipse" is similar to the relation between "D/D" and "Dark Contract" archetypes.
