(HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!)



Exodia NecrossAlso known by its full title "Exodia the Forbidden One" (and at one time, the Great Defender of Egypt), Exodia is commonly perceived in the anime and manga as being among the strongest of all Duel Monsters. Although Exodia is typically shown as being summoned and attacking in the anime, its actual effect activates in the hand: players who gather all five Exodia parts in their hand can declare an automatic victory, regardless of Life Points. Exodia is split into a head, and four limbs (two arms and two legs). The story of why and how it was split and sealed is revealed in the final season, when its original master Shimon fragmented it because it was too powerful. However, when Zorc attacked the palace, Shimon released the beast to do battle with him. Although the two traded blows with near-equal power, Exodia lost because it was summoned by Shimon's energy, and thus when Shimon could no longer power it, Exodia was destroyed.


Exodia has a counterpart called Exodia Necross, a ghostly, necromantic version of it. Used by Gozaburo Kaiba against his stepson Seto Kaiba,[4] this version of Exodia is powered by the five limbs being in the Graveyard and can only be summoned by the effect of the Spell Card Contract with Exodia, and as long as all five parts remain, it cannot be destroyed in any way. Gozaburo uses the monster with the intent of dealing Kaiba an ironic defeat (the actual Exodia being the first monster to defeat Kaiba), but Kaiba overcomes Exodia Necross and claims victory by using the Trap Card Soul Demolition and unleashing the Blue Eyes White Dragon. Later in the GX anime, the character Adrian Gecko plays an Exodia deck featuring another counterpart called Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord, which is summoned by the effects of Ultimate Unsealing Ritualistic Technique (Ritual of the Ultimate Forbidden Lord in the English anime). Each time it attacks, it sends an Exodia part to the graveyard, and when all five limbs are sent, its controller wins the duel. Adrian acquires Exodia by sacrificing his love Echo to Exodia's spirit, but he is defeated in a duel to Yubel and loses Exodia's power. The real life card functions a bit differently; it has no corresponding spell card that summons it (you instead summon it by returning all monsters in the Graveyard to your deck) and when it attacks, you can send any normal monster to the grave from your deck, not just Exodia parts. In addition, Exodius looks like a more heavily-armored version of Exodia. Also, Exodia is one of the few monsters with an Egyptian appearance.

Wicked God Cards

The Gods (邪神 ,Jashin?), introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! R, are a trio of cards owned by Pegasus' protégé and adopted son, Yakou Tenma. Tournament-legal versions of the cards, known as The Wicked Dreadroot, The Wicked Avatar and The Wicked Eraser, exist in the OCG, released alongside the June 2005, February 2007, and March 2007 respective issues of V-Jump. Their TCG equivalents have been released in United States Shonen Jump, with The Wicked Eraser included in the magazine's September 2007 issue, The Wicked Avatar included in the November 2007 issue, and The Wicked Dreadroot was included in the January 2008 issue. The Wicked God Cards slowly made their introduction in Yugioh! R.


In terms of the anime, the founding of these cards are hidden away by Pegasus, after the release of the first 3 God Cards and the unfortunate events which followed them, the thought of having these cards in the wrong hands would be too great of a risk. When they had been discovered by Yakou Tenma, who is Pegasus' protege, they were thoroughly impossible to impede.


the wicked eraser- requires 3 monsters to tribute summon and can not be special summoned, its original attack points are for each card on the opponents side of the field, if it is destroyed. all cards are destroyed, during the main phase, the player controlling it can destroy it to activates its effect


the wicked avatar- requires 3 monsters to tribute summon and can not be special summoned, its original points are 100 points added to the attack and defense of the strongest monster on the field. when it is summoned. the opponent can not activate any magic or trap cards for the next 2 turns


the wicked dreadroot- requires 3 monsters to tribute summon and can not be special summoned, its attack and defense points are 4000, it halves the attack and defense of all monsters on the field besides the wicked dreadroot

Dark Magician

A Level 7 Monster Card that can be obtained through Yugi's Starter Deck and spellcaster-themed decks. There are various versions of Dark Magician, in which the spellcaster's hair is different-coloured and poses vary. In the manga and anime, Yugi often uses the Dark Magician against various foes, making it his signature monster card. When in a duel against a strong foe (maxamillion Pegasus), Yugi often 'evolves' Dark Magician to stronger forms using ritual and spell cards. The Dark Magician of Chaos and the Black Magic Ritual (Dark Magician was sacrificed with Jigen Bakudan) are examples of its more powerful forms, along with Sorcerer Of Dark Magic, Dark Sage and Dark Eradicator Warlock.


Attack points = 2500 Defence ponts = 2100



[edit] Advanced Ritual Art

A Ritual Spell that can be used to summon Ritual monsters from your hand by sending Normal monsters from your deck to the Graveyard. The card is notable for making the aforementioned monsters playable, both of which had been deemed unplayable at a competitive level. Since its release it has been used in a "One Turn Kill" variant. Advanced Ritual Art would be used to Summon Demise, King of Armageddon by sending 2 Insect-type monsters to the Graveyard. Demise's effect would then clear all other cards from the field, while the player special summons Doom Dozer by removing the insects from their Graveyard. Then, a combination of Megamorph and Metamorphosis allows the player to summon Cyber Twin Dragon and attack for over ten thousand damage.



[edit] Blue-Eyes White Dragon

The signature card of Seto Kaiba, it is considered to be one of the strongest monsters in the anime. Its attack is White Lightning in the English anime, and Burst Stream of Destruction (滅びの爆裂疾風弾) in the Japanese anime. In the manga and anime, there are only four in the entire world (held by Collectors in Japan, Germany, Hong Kong and America)[1] the explanation being that the card was considered "too powerful" and therefore discontinued. Kaiba, who dreams of owning all of them, acquires three of them through underhanded tactics such as a mafia deal, forcing the owner into bankruptcy and forcing one to commit suicide (though it is implied he had the person killed). Only three of one card can be in one's deck at a time, and the fourth Blue-Eyes belonged to Sugoroku Mutou, which Kaiba ripped up so it can never be used against him.[1] Soon afterward Kaiba begins using all three of his Blue-Eyes cards in his deck, fusing them via Polymerization to form the three-headed Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, one of the most powerful monsters in the game. The card becomes Kaiba's trademark and motif, as he owns a jet, a dueling arena and a theme park all based on the beast, as well as a card Kaibaman modeled after Kaiba to support the Blue-Eyes. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX episode in which Kaibaman's spirit appears, he has the same voice, deck and mannerisms as Kaiba.[2] Kaiba's appearance of a white coat and bright blue eyes also conjure the dragon's image, and in the PlayStation 2 video game Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses, Kaiba's armor is modeled after the Blue-Eyes.


In the final season of the anime, the dragon is revealed to be the spirit of Kisara, a young woman who was captured by Akhenaden for the power of the beast. Kaiba's past incarnation, Priest Seto, fell in love with Kisara and defended her to the death. After Akhenaden killed her and possessed Seto, Kisara's spirit entered Seto's mind and destroyed Akhenaden. The love the two shared is the reason why Kaiba was driven to claim all the Blue-Eyes cards in the present. In the anime, the monster itself is described by Zorc as "the ultimate creature of light," with power greater than that of the three God Cards. In the anime, the Blue-Eyes White Dragon's power is further demonstrated by being the first monster who deals actual damage to Zorc. Even Exodia, considered by many in the anime to be invincible, was unable to do this: while he did damage Zorc, Zorc was able to regenerate.



[edit] Cyber Dragon/Cyberdark Dragon

Cyber Dragon is the signature card used by Zane Truesdale in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime, and a staple for many tournament decks. Cyber Dragon is a a five star monster that can be special summoned if your opponent has a monster on the field but you don't. Many decks would consist of 3 Cyber Dragons, but in time the card became Limited meaning only 1 copy could be used. The Cyberdark cards are the counterpart to the Cyber Dragon series, and make their debut in season 2 of GX. They consist of Cyberdark Keel, Cyberdark Edge and Cyberdark Horn, and they can be fused to create Cyberdark Dragon. The Cyberdark strategy revolves around equipping Level 3 or lower Dragon-type monsters and gaining their attack strength, or fusing them to create Cyberdark Dragon who can equip any dragon in the grave, as well as gain attack power equal to the number of monsters in your graveyard.



[edit] Cyber-Stein

Cyber-Stein or Devil Franken in the OCG , which is named after Frankenstein. At the cost of 5000 Life Points this card allowed a player to Special Summon a Fusion monster.


Cyber-Stein has been the subject of two controversies in the history of the card game. Cyber-Stein was originally printed only for winners of Shonen Jump Championship competitions, with the first card having a bid placed on eBay for over 20,000 US dollars.[3] The buyer did not pay,[3] however and the card was resold for approximately $7,000 USD. The card is now available as a rare in Dark Beginning 2, however this card is banned from most tournaments.



[edit] Dark Armed Dragon

This card is commonly played in the winning Shonen Jump tournament decks and it is based on Chazz Princeton's Armed Dragon LV7. It is a 2800/1000 DARK monster that could be special summoned by having exactly 3 DARK Monsters in the graveyard. While it is on the field, one can remove one DARK monster to destroy one card on the field. When this card is released, a common strategy was to use cards such as Dark Grepher and Armageddon Knight to send DARK monsters to the graveyard, then remove them, and use recursion effects such as Return from a Different Dimension, and Dimension Fusion to swarm your opponent to win. As a result, the former has been restricted to one per deck and then later was banned.

Light and Darkness Dragon

A powerful dragon card released in 2007, Light and Darkness Dragon has become one of the most sought after cards and is wildly known to be playable in nearly any deck. The site pojo.com rated it the number one card released in 2007.[5] The card itself possesses attack power higher than most other monsters commonly played, can negate the effects of other cards in exchange for weakening itself, and allows the player to special summon any monster in their Graveyard when destroyed. For these reasons it has become known to provide unprecedented field control, forcing opponents to play cards to purposely weaken the dragon enough to destroy it and then being forced to deal with whatever the player revives.[6]Multiple copies of the dragon are often featured in decks using Destiny Hero - Disk Commander, Destiny Hero - Malicious, Dark Magician of Chaos and Elemental Hero Stratos, with such decks relying on accumulating advantage through the dragon's effects and keeping a supply of monsters in play to tribute summon it.


The card has not been shown in any of the anime, but is featured in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga as Chazz Princeton's Spirit Partner.



[edit] Red-Eyes Black Dragon

A dark dragon that is commonly seen as a counterpart to the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Its link to Blue-Eyes is explicitly stated in the first movie: "The Blue-Eyes brings victory, while the Red-Eyes brings potential". While the Blue-Eyes is stronger in terms of pure power, the Red-Eyes has a greater number of alternate forms that can overpower the Blue-Eyes. The Red-Eyes is one of Katsuya Jonouchi's (Joey Wheeler's) strongest cards. It originally belonged to Dinosaur Ryuzaki (Rex Raptor), but he bet it against Jonouchi in the hopes of seizing his Time Wizard. Jonouchi instead used that same card to fossilize Ryuzaki's dinosaur monsters and thus claimed victory, along with Dinosaur's favorite card.[7] The card goes on to become a key card in Jonouchi's deck, and he gradually integrates more and more cards to strengthen the dragon and call forth its alternate forms.


The card is also used by Nightshroud, aka Atticus Rhodes in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. Nightshroud uses the full extent of the card's power through a wide array of cards based around it, including Red-Eyes Darkness Dragon. After Nightshroud is defeated, his spirit is sealed in the card and Atticus periodically calls on its power for assistance.


In 2008, the Structure Deck "Zombie World" was released and along with it, the Ultra Rare card, Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon, which is the evil counterpart of Red-Eyes Black Dragon.



[edit] Kuriboh

Kuriboh has been used in Yugi's Deck, and has been seen many times. It initially appeared alone, but later became one of Five Kuriboh Brothers, each with a different ability ranging from combining into new forms of Kuriboh to blocking an opponent's strike. Kuriboh also has a counterpart, Winged Kuriboh, who serves as a Duel Spirit and card in Jaden's Deck.[8] It was given to Jaden from Yugi in the first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX.[9] Winged Kuriboh has two alternative forms: Winged Kuriboh LV10 and Winged Kuriboh LV9. Winged Kuriboh LV10 was used by Jaden in his duel against Chazz to defeat his VWXYZ Dragon Catapult Cannon.[10]. A female variation, the Kuribon, was introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's as part of Luca's Fairy/Spirit deck.


Kuribohs have the ability to negate battle damage. Thanks to this ability Kuriboh is sometimes side decked to counter "One Turn Kill" Decks.[11] The Kuriboh series is backed up with a few support cards. One of which, The Flute of Summoning Kuriboh, can be used for tech in Monarch decks, either to place a Kuriboh in hand to block the aforementioned One Turn Kill, or to Special Summon one to be tributed.



[edit] Card Archetypes


[edit] Archfiend

Archfiends didn’t get their own classification until they started being printed as such. Monsters such as Terrorking Archfiend, Skull Archfiend of Lightning, Archfiend Soldier, Archfiend General and the Synchro Monster Red Dragon Archfiend are part of this archetype. Some of the first of these cards were produced in a chess themed set, that had a chess board in the background of the artwork, and piece names in the card titles. These were released in the Dark Crisis and Dark Revelation booster packs. There was Terrorking, Infernalqueen, Darkbishop,Shadowknight, Desrook and Vilepawn, respectively. This batch all pretty much required the use of a card called Pandemonium, the field card that lets the player use the Archfiends without paying life points, and even allow some Archfiends to be on the field (Archfiend General). Later on more archfiends have been added, and some cards retro-classified as Archfiends. Some of these cards include Lesser fiend, Axe of Despair, Summoned Skull, and Shadow Tamer. In Yu-Gi-Oh GX, a shadow duelist named Titan used an archfiend-oriented deck.



[edit] Arcana Force

Arcana Force are a series of monsters introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh GX used by the main antagonist of the second season, Sartorius. The Arcana Force are based on the major arcana in tarot. Arcana Force monsters are all Fairy-Type and Light. All Arcana Force use coin flip to determine their effects.



[edit] Chaos

A deck-archetype that reigned over all tournaments prior to the creation of the Forbidden List, it's these monsters and "Yata-Garasu" that were blamed for the creation of the Forbidden List in the first place. The trademark Chaos cards are Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End, Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning, and Chaos Sorcerer. When they were first released, Chaos Emperor Dragon and Black Luster Soldier were the two that were used, because Chaos Sorcerer's effect didn't seem to make it worth playing at the time. The original Chaos Deck relied on discarding Light and Dark Attribute monsters and removing them from play to meet the popular Special Summoning conditions of the Chaos monsters. With their powerful effects, ability to be easily summoned, and high attack power, the Chaos monsters could easily dominate an opponent. It's of popular opinion among the best players in the game that Black Luster Soldier is the better card, for its ability to remove from play helpful monsters used by many during this time such as, Sangan, Witch of The Black Forest, Sinister Serpent, and others that had to be sent to the graveyard to get their effects.


With Chaos Emperor Dragon in particular, players would use its effect while Sangan or Witch of the Black Forest was on their field by paying 1000 lifepoints to destroying all cards on the field and in both players hands, allowing the player to search their deck for Yata-Garasu with either Sangan or Witch's effect once they went to the graveyard with CED's effect. With Yata, this could stop the opponent from drawing cards if it inflicted lifepoint damage to them. The end result is a situation in which the opponent has no cards in their hand or on the field, and cannot draw, making it impossible for them to win, barring effect cards in their graveyard activating. This dangerous strategy has become known as a Yata-Lock, and both Yata-Garasu and Chaos Emperor Dragon were two of the cards on the first Forbidden List for this reason. After Chaos Emperor Dragon and Black Luster Soldier were banned, the Chaos theme didn't see much play until the release of the popular card, Cyber Dragon in the Cybernetic Revolution Set. Along with Zaborg The Thunder Monarch and a few other Light and Dark attribute monsters being released, this allowed players to create competitive Chaos Decks once again, but this time with Chaos Sorcerer's. With its effect being a slightly weaker version of Black Luster Solder's but still being effective, Chaos Sorcerer quickly rose to being in the Top 8 decks for many tournaments until it too was banned.


Although Chaos as an archetype is now non-existent in competitive play, weaker versions of the Chaos monsters have been released such as Demise, King of Armageddon and Ruin, Queen of Oblivion. Various other monsters relying on summoning by removing cards in the graveyard from play are also commonly released, such as the Sky Scourges, two of which have abilities that mirror the abilities of Black Luster Soldier and Chaos Emperor Dragon.


Both of the Envoys are also used in the Yu-Gi-Oh anime. Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning and Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End were in the decks of the characters, Yugi and Kaiba, respectively in the original Yu-Gi-Oh series. Black Luster Soldier made an appearance and was played by the character Dimitri in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX series, while he was using Yugi's stolen deck (although Yugi himself never used the card.[12]Chaos Emperor Dragon was used by Kaiba against the character, Zigfried[13].



[edit] Crystal Beasts

A set of cards belonging to Jesse Andersen in the Yu Gi Oh! GX Anime Series. The Crystal Beasts were made from gemstones gathered from all over the world, and have the special ability to occupy space in the Spell Card field once they are destroyed. From there, various support cards can be used to revive them. They have become stronger now that Jesse has retrieved the Ultimate Gem God, Rainbow Dragon; the trump card of the Crystal Beasts deck.


In the TCG, Crystal Beasts are able to quickly swarm the field using Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus and Crystal Blessing to amass Crystal Beasts in the spell/trap zones, then use Crystal Beacon and Crystal Beast Ruby Carbuncle to summon them all at once. Besides this, when four Crystal Beasts exist in the spell/trap zones, Crystal Abundance allows the player to simultaneously destroy four or more cards on the opponent's field and then summon an equal number of Crystal Beasts from the Graveyard. When used in such a fashion, Crystal Beast decks can accomplish a one-turn kill. Crystal Beasts are often used as a substitute for Continuous Spell Cards in Sacred Beast decks.



[edit] Destiny Heroes

A series of Dark-attribute Warriors, these are the trademark cards used by Aster Phoenix during the second season of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. They are considered the rival cards to Jaden's Elemental Heroes, and possess abilities pertaining to time or the passage of time, ranging from the displacement of his opponent's monsters into the future to the revival of his monsters or halving of his opponent's Life Points within a turn. In the same way, they have a wide support base of cards, some of which (Dark City, D-Cubic and Destiny Mirage) directly parallel the support (Skyscraper, Wroughtweiler and Elemental Mirage) for the Elemental Heroes.


Some of the Destiny Heroes include Diamond Dude (Diamondguy), Doom Lord (Devilguy), Dreadmaster (Dreadguy), Captain Tenacious (Diehardguy), Blade Master (Daggerguy) and Dogma (Dogmaguy). Many are based on various anti-heroes of British literature (such as Double Dude being a reference to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde). In the original series, all the Destiny Heroes had the suffix "Guy" and had names starting with "D" (Devilguy, Doomguy, Dogmaguy, etc). The only exceptions were Plasma (though the original name is Bloo-D, which D is still a main part of the name) and Darkangel (lacking the "Guy" suffix).


Destiny Heroes served as a playable deck type, particularly while Elemental Hero Stratos was unrestricted.[14] This deck type has proven a popular choice and has featured in some of the top eight decklists in "Shonen Jump TCG Championship Series Tournaments".[15] Beyond this, a decktype known as "Diamond Dude Turbo" (abbreviated DDT) also exists, relying on using Diamond Dude's effect in tandem with Destiny Heroes "Malicious" and "Dasher", as well as "Card Trooper" and the Spells "Destiny Draw" and "Magical Stone Excavation". The Deck Revolves around using 'Destiny Draw and Magical Stone Excavation with "Diamond Dude"'s effect to gain card advantage, as costs are not paid with "Diamond Dude"'s effect.[16] "Malicious" and "Dasher" are sent to the Graveyard with the many discard effects featured in the deck so their effects can activate, allowing the player to get many monsters to the field. Another type of Destiny Hero deck is known as "Perfect Circle", which revolves around Destiny Hero - Disk Commander. By using cards like Destiny Draw and Foolish Burial to discard Disk Commander, players can then revive it continuously using Destiny Hero - Fear Monger, among other cards, and draw two cards every time Disk Commander is revived, allowing them to accumulate large hands with ease.



[edit] Elemental Heroes

you can make a e-hero derk by finding e-hero avian,burstrinitix,wildman,sparkman bubbleman,edgeman, and fusion monster.


you need field card like fusion gate,and sykscaper.



[edit] Cyber Girl

These series of cards are used by Alexis Rhodes from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. The monsters are all female monsters themed on ballet, such as Etoile Cyber, Blade Skater, Cyber Blader, Cyber Tutu, Cyber Gymnast and Cyber Prima. Their effects range from direct attack, card destruction, attack power increasing and not being destroyed by battle, depending on the monster. They were introduced in the third episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, titled A Duel In Love, in which Alexis brought out Cyber Blader.


To summon Cyber Blader you must use a spell card called "Polymerization" to fuse together Etoile Cyber and Blade Skater.


The background behind each of the Cyber Girls are all designed the same. With the backgrounds you can tell it is a Cyber Girl. They can be found in Elemenal Energy and Enemy of Justice.



[edit] The Five Dragons

Five Dragon/Synchro monsters who pay a pivotal role in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, which introduces the concept of Synchro/Tuner monsters into the game. Each dragon is the signature card of one of "Signers", the series' main characters. So far only four dragons were revealed: Stardust Dragon (Yusei Fudo), Red Dragon Archfiend (Jack Atlas), Black Rose Dragon (Akiza) and Ancient Fairy Dragon (Luna).



[edit] Gadgets

A series of machine-type monsters whose effects allow players to search for relevant gadget monsters. They are Green Gadget, Red Gadget and Yellow Gadget. Each of the Gadgets can search each other from the player's deck. They are also supported by Stronghold the Moving Fortress, Boot Up Soldier - Dread Dynamo, Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Dragon and Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Chimera. They are found in the Machine Re-Volt Structure Deck.


They were notably used by Yugi Muto in the Ceremonial Duel against Atem in the last episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters.


Gadgets are a mildly well known set, due to their effects and appearance in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series. Players often use them to get ahead in what is considered card advantage, by gaining another Gadget in hand each time a gadget is summoned and protecting the Gadgets with numerous removal and negation-based cards like Sakuretsu Armor and Royal Oppression. The card known as Elemental Hero - Stratos (E. Hero Airman) tended to neutralize the use of Gadgets this way. Stratos has recently been restricted in play, allowing Gadget use to thrive again.



[edit] Gladiator Beasts

This series of cards was released in the Gladiator's Assault booster pack and is based in the strategy and effort of activating their effects. Most Gladiator Beast monsters have the ability of "tag" with another Beast in the deck and summoning it onto the field to activate its effect. The effect reads "At the end of the Battle Phase, if this card attacked or was attacked, you can return it to the Deck to Special Summon 1 Gladiator Beast monster from your Deck, except a copy of the same monster". The most powerful Gladiator Beast in the TCG is Gladiator Beast Octavius with 2500 ATK Points. These monsters also have a "Contact Fusion" theme just like the Neo-Spacians with E-Hero Neos sending the monster to the Deck instead of the Graveyard and no need of Polymerization and so far 3 fusions have been release, Gladiator Beast Gaiodiaz, Gladiator Beast Gyzarus, Gladiator Beast Heraklinos, the last one being the most powerful with 3000 ATK Points and the ability to negate the activation of a Spell or Trap Card by discarding 1 card from your hand; this effect does not have a limit so it can be use multiple times. Other Gladiator Beasts include Gladiator Beast Murmillo, Gladiator Beast Bestiari,Gladiator Beast Hoplomus and others. Usually, one card or more comes in a pack to support this Deck. The names of this monsters have been taken from gladiator classes in the Roman period or real characters in the time such as Alexander the Great and Octavius. It has yet to be confirmed if this series of cards will be shown in the Anime series. Of all the deck types used in tournament gameplay, this is one of the most well-known and powerful. It is also one of the few deck types which all cards in the series are unlimited, since some TCG only cards like Test Tiger have yet to make a Japanese appearance.



[edit] Koalas

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game features many koala cards including Des Koala, Big Koala, Sea Koala, and a fusion monster, Master of Oz. In the television show Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, the character Chumley Huffington, who has a koala-like nose and hair that resembles koala ears, uses an Australian-themed deck. All of the koala cards listed above came out in different booster packs: Des Koala came out in Magician's Force; Big Koala was first released in Invasion of Chaos; Master of Oz was in Soul of the Duelist; and most recently, Sea Koala came out in Phantom Darkness. However, Sea Koala was never used in the GX anime. Chumley also used some never released koala support cards such as Eucalyptus Mole and Koala March, which bring koala cards to the field and revive them. Of all the koala cards, Des Koala is probably the most notable because it has been used in many burn decks because his flip effect is able to give out 400 points of damage for each card in the opponent's hand. Unfortunately, Chumley was only able to successfully use this effect once during the anime, in his duel against Dr. Crowler. Master of Oz is also notable, having 4200 ATK points.



[edit] Lightsworns

Lightsworns (Lightlords in Japan) were introduced in Light of Destruction. While most of them are on the field, the player is required to send cards from the top of his or her deck to the Graveyard. While this may sound counterproductive, many card effects are helped by having Lightsworns in the grave, including Gragonith, Lightsworn Dragon who is powered up the more unique Lightsworns there are in the grave, and the support card Judgment Dragon which can only be summoned when there are four unique Lightsworns in the grave, and can destroy the field at a cost of 1000 points. Wulf, Lightsworn Beast is summoned to the field when discarded from the deck which assists in their power, and other Lightsworns have useful effects on the field, such as the TCG-only Ehren, Lightsworn Monk which automatically returns Defense-position monsters to the deck in battle. Lightsworns have been used to counter Dark Armed Dragon decks because they can swarm the field quicker than the latter can clear it.



[edit] Monarchs

A series of cards whose effects are triggered when Tribute Summoned, allowing the player to remove cards from the field or hand in some manner. The members include Zaborg, Mobius, Thestalos, and Granmarg. They were later joined by three new Monarchs: Raiza, Caius and Kuraz. The effects all deal with the disposal of cards. All the Monarchs have 2400 attack points, 1000 defense points and are level six with the exception of Zaborg who is level five. The Monarchs were initially released in Ancient Sanctuary with Zaborg the Thunder Monarch. Since then single monarchs have been released in following sets.


The "four elemental" Monarchs are used in the anime by the "Light Brigade" led by Sarina, Sartorius' sister. This arc depicts four duelists who each use decks based around their Monarch's elemental inclination (ice, thunder, fire, earth).[17]


The Monarchs are very popular deck theme in the real life Trading Card Game, often featuring in top eight decklists in major tournaments. Monarch decks usually focus on Tribute Summoning Monarchs without losing any card advantage by tributing monsters. This is often done with cards such as Treeborn Frog, Brain Control and Soul Exchange.[18]



[edit] Neo-Spacians

Another set of cards Jaden had in his deck during season 2. The six alien monsters, each based on a manga design, originated from Neo Space and came to help Jaden fight the Society of Light. They were designed by Jaden, printed by Kaiba, and sent into space (where Jaden later finds them) in order to share the game with Alien life. Their unique ability, other than their effect, is that they can evoke Contact Fusions with Elemental Hero Neos, upgrading his form with their power. Its members are composed of Aqua Dolphin, Flare Scarab, Air Hummingbird, Grand Mole, Glow Moss, and Dark Panther, with each being of a different Attribute.


The Neo-Spacians are typically lacking in power, but have powerful effects to compensate: the effects of the Contact Fused-Neos is typically an upgraded version of this effect. They also have several Contact and Coccoon cards that let them Special Summon themselves. They even have their own field card, Neo Space, to counteract the return of Contact Fused-Neos cards back to the Fusion Deck. Recently, Neos has been shown to have the ability to Contact Fuse more than one Neo-Spacian at the same time, leading to Chaos Neos, Storm Neos, and Magma Neos. In a past episode, Neos Contact Fused with Rainbow Dragon, creating Rainbow Neos, although it isn't really considered Contact Fusion, as it also requires a fusioning Spell Card, for example Super Polymerization or Polymerization, as shown by Jaden when he Fusion Summons Rainbow Neos.


In the last episodes of GX, two more Neos fusions have appeared: Neos Wiseman, a fusion of Neos and Yubel along with Divine Neos, a Contact Fusion of Neos and all 6 Neo-Spacians (this makes Divine Neos the Fusion monster with the most required Fusion-Material monsters in the history of Yu-Gi-Oh).


In the TCG Neo-Spacian Grand Mole has seen the most play because of its ability to send a monster back to a players hand simply by attacking it. The effect activates before Damage Calculation so there are no Life Points lost by doing this. A "Mole-Lock" can be created in this way by using its effect in combination with Ultimate Offering, returning all your opponents' cards on the field to their hand. The card is one of two (the other being Elemental Hero Stratos) Elemental Hero cards that have been limited.



[edit] Ojama Trio

A set of cards, used by Chazz Princeton in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. The members include Ojama Yellow, Ojama Green, and Ojama Black. Ojama Yellow initially served as Chazz's only duel spirit. But after forced into a duel where Chazz could only use monsters with 500 or less attack points Chazz acquired the other two brothers much to his annoyance.[19] In the English version, Ojama Yellow has a high-pitched, falsetto voice, while Ojama Black and Ojama Green have voices similar to Moe and Curly of The Three Stooges.


Each Ojama has 0 attack points and 1000 defence points. Although weak in appearance, they host a great deal of support cards, such as Ojama Delta Hurricane! and Ojamagic and a fusion, Ojama King and Ojama Knight, who cuts the Monster Spaces on an opponent's field by 3 and 2 respectively. Ojama King lacks in ATK power also, but has 3000 DEF, which can trump most attackers, such as Ancient Gear Golem.


The support card Ojama Trio is often used by players in the TCG who are using burn decks (a deck type that focuses on inflicting direct damage to the opponent via card effects, as opposed to battle damage).[20] Ojama Trio places three Ojama tokens on the opponents side of the field, restricting their opponent's ability to summon, allowing Just Desserts and Secret Barrel to inflict more damage, and also inflicting 300 points of damage when each token is destroyed.


Recently, new Ojama cards Ojama Red and Ojama Blue have been announced for future release, as well as a support Field Spell Ojama Country.



[edit] Sacred Beast Cards

The Sacred Beasts (三幻魔 ,Sangenma?, Three Phantom Demons in the Japanese anime) are prominent plot points in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. Known as Uria, Lord of Searing Flames, Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder, and Raviel, Lord of Phantasms. They are dark counterparts to the God cards, but their history and reason for existing are not made clear. The Chancellor of Duel Academy mentions a legend that they have the power to destroy Duel Monster cards by absorbing their energy, and they were thus sealed on the island. Like the God cards, the Beasts are depicted as the most powerful of all Duel Monsters in GX and serve essentially the same purpose as the God cards did in the original anime.


The main antagonist of the first season, Kagemaru, used the cards to drain energy to rejuvenate his aged body, but was defeated. The antagonist of the third season, Yubel, also used them for the same purpose of rejuvenating itself. Yubel also reveals the Sacred Beasts have a combined form, Armitael, Phantasm of Chaos, although its design and role differ greatly from the combined form of the God Cards. These monsters reflect the Egyptian God Cards; Slifer the Sky Dragon, Winged Dragon of Ra & Obelisk the Tormentor.


Uria, Lord of Searing Flames, is the counterpart of Slifer the Sky Dragon, Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder, is the counterpart of The Winged Dragon of Ra, & Raviel, Lord of Phantasms, is the counterpart of Obelisk the Tormentor. The Sacred Beast Cards work well with any duelist playing a Chaos deck.



[edit] The Six Samurai

Introduced in the set Strike of Neos, the Six Samurai are a group of six monster cards featuring a futuristic samurai design. Each of the Six Samurai have an effect that is activated only when two or more Six Samurai with different names are on the field at the same time. The effects can range from destroying Spell or Trap Cards, automatically destroying monster cards that a Six Samurai attacks, being able to attack a player directly or attacking twice in one turn. They all have a secondary effect which allows a player to save one of their Samurai about to be destroyed (by cards such as Smashing Ground or Ring of Destruction) by destroying another Six Samurai on the field.


To further the playability of these monster, Upper Deck Entertainment attained special permission to print a monster card that Japanese players (who normally have entire sets of cards upwards of three months before players in other countries) have never seen before: Grandmaster of the Six Samurai. Grandmaster of the Six Samurai is considered the "Seventh Samurai" in the Six Samurai series because "Six Samurai" appears in its card name. It is a 2100 attack, 800 defense monster that can be Special Summoned from a player's hand when they have another Six Samurai monster on the field (this is very important as this is an LV5 monster, meaning a Normal Summon would require a tribute). Being considered a Six Samurai monster, Grandmaster of the Six Samurai is able to activate the effects of other Six Samurai on the field and, because of this, he is considered the most important Six Samurai monster to have in a deck. While he lacks the protection effect, Grandmaster of the Six Samurai has his own valuable effect; when destroyed by an opponent's card effect, he is able to return one Six Samurai monster in the Graveyard (including himself or other copies of himself) to the controller's hand.


Another valuable card for the Six Samurai series is Great Shogun Shien. Great Shogun Shien is a 2500 attack, 2400 defense monster that can be Special Summoned from a player's hand as long as he has two or more Six Samurai on their side of the field. His primary effect limits the opposing player from playing more than one Spell or Trap Card per turn and, to prevent its destruction, it also has the ability to destroy a Six Samurai monster on the field to save itself.


The Six Samurai also have other support cards, such as Shien's Footsoldier, which when destroyed by battle, gives the player the chance of Special Summoning a Six Samurai from the deck; other one is Legendary Ebon Steed, which, including the attack and defense power up, allows the player to destroy the card instead of the Six Samurai holding it, if it was to be destroyed; And Shien's Castle of Mist, which decreases the attack of a monster that attacks it by 500 Other support cards is Spirit of the Six Samurai" which is a union monster; and Hand of the Six Samurai which can tribute a Six Samurai on the field to destroy a monster your opponent controls.



[edit] Harpie Lady Cards

The Harpie Lady cards were made famous by the anime character Mai Valentine. They are all winged-beast cards of the wind attribute. They are cards based off of the Harpies in greek mythology. However instead of appearing as ugly, they are quite beautiful. The monsters include Harpie Lady, Harpie Lady 1, Harpie Lady 2, Harpie Lady 3, Cyber Harpie Lady, Harpie Queen, Harpie Girl, and Harpie Lady Sisters. Magic support includes Elegant Egotist, Triangle Ecstacy Spark, and Harpie's Hunting Ground. These cards allow for increased attack and defense, special summoning more Harpies, and magic and trap destruction. Their support monsters, Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon and Harpie's Pet Dragon's attack points and special abilities are increased by the Harpie Lady monsters. Harpies combine the ability to be rapidly summoned, to destroy the opponent's cards, and to increase each other's attack and defense points. Harpies can't innately destroy cards, but the Field Spell Card Harpies' Hunting Ground causes one Spell or Trap Card to be destroyed every time Harpie Lady, Harpie Lady 1, Harpie Lady 2, Harpie Lady 3, Cyber Harpie Lady, Harpie Queen, and/or Harpie Lady Sisters are Summoned in any way. And When three Harpie Ladies are on the field, if a Harpie's Pet Dragon is face-up, it can destroy any one card per turn. They are one of the very few cards that can be Summoned en masse from the Graveyard. This is done through the use of Hysteric Party, a continous trap which allows all Harpies in the graveyard to be returned by discarding one card from the hand. Their support cards, Harpie's Pet Baby Dragon and Harpie's Pet Dragon, rapidly gain in power and usefulness through effects including protecting other harpie cards, increased attack and defense values, and card destruction as the Harpies swarm the field. Properly played, Harpies can overwhelm the opponent in moments with high attack power and poweful effects, but they are individually quite weak, so they are vulnerable to opponents who Summon strong single Monsters early to whittle down the number of Harpies on the field.
