In the game, Slider The Sky Dragon requires three tributes to summon the monster and gains 1,000 Attack and Defense Points for every card in the player's hand. Slider The Sky Dragon is an archetype of DIVINE Beast Monster cards not released during its appearance until 2012 in Shnen Jump's July 2012 issue that included the promotional Monster card.
Read More Key Features One of the Egyptian God Cards Gains 1,000 Attack and Defense Points for every card in player's hand An archetype of DIVINE Beast Monster cards Reduces the Attack Points of an opponent's monster by 2,000 Points. Pros Card effect allows for players to have an incredible upper-hand during a duel Various versions of the card are released for people to collect Gains 1,000 Attack and Defense Points for every card in player's hand Reduces the Attack Points of an opponent's monster by 2,000 Points.
Cons Requires 3 Monster cards to act as tribute on the playing field to special summon Forbidden from worldwide tournaments It is an archetype of DARK Spell caster monsters released in the Legend of Blue-Eyes White Dragon card packs.
Forbidden One was one of the first deck themes and remains one of the most popular ones to date. Exotic's backstory and pharaoh-like appearance seemed to be a reference to the famous Egyptian legend of Osiris.
Osiris was the god Egyptians believed brought them civilization, such as the knowledge of architecture, farming, and establishing the line of pharaohs. However, Osiris was betrayed by his jealous brother Set and was cut into several pieces, which were then scattered across Egypt.
This leads the story to the explanation of Exotic's card set in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Originally, the complete “Forbidden One” set was extremely hard to obtain, with all five pieces being Ultra Rare.
They have since been reprinted into lesser rarities, making a complete set easier to obtain. Often, Exotic The Forbidden One is printed as an Ultra Rare card, and the limbs are Commons.
Yuri's Legendary Deck prints all five pieces as Fixed Rarity Ultra Rares. If you're willing to risk the match by unleashing Exotic The Forbidden One, then be the legend that can hold all five cards together to defeat any opponent that comes at you.
Relinquished is easily a valuable card to have in a player's deck if Black Illusion Ritual is also in the inventory. The most likely way to defeat the monster is through Spell and Trap cards.
However, if that is not executed properly, expect Monster cards facing Relinquished to be absorbed and destroyed in an instant. Relinquished is eligible for Trading Card Game tournaments, having Common rarity but defeating opponents most of the time during duels.
Yuri summons him during his very first casual duel between himself and Joey Wheeler, his classmate and longtime friend. Dark Magician can only be summoned by sacrificing a Monster card already on the playing field.
As for its eligibility for Trading Card Game tournaments, Dark Magician is allowed to be used in-game. However, it is part of the Magician archetype that can be a trump set of a deck if a player has various Spell caster Monster cards in hand.
Cons No effect included, acting as just a Monster card with high Attack and Defense Points In the main series, the story goes that Kaaba won Solomon Mouth's Blue-Eyes White Dragon card, then destroying it.
Leaving only three Blue-Eyes White Dragons in the world for himself, Kaaba became very obsessed with them, liking to decorate everything he possesses as Blue-Eyes. Kaaba gained the status of being the only character in the series that is worthy and powerful enough to control the monsters.
In the universe, these monsters were only capable of being summoned by the chosen Pharaoh. A player is able to pay 1,000 Life Points and target one monster on the field to destroy it.
Like its neighboring Egyptian God cards, The Winged Dragon Of Ra is an archetype of DIVINE Beast Monster cards not released during its appearance until Shnen Jump's January 2011 issue that included its promotional card. The Winged Dragon Of Ra is of Ultra Rare rarity and Secret Rare rarity, the highest rarity status in the Trading Card Game, being impossible to obtain during the show's appearance, but has since been easier to obtain over time.
Cons Banned from all Trading Card Game tournaments Lore, it states that “the descent of this mighty creature shall be heralded by burning winds and twisted land.
Just like the other Egyptian God cards, Obelisk The Tormentor could only be obtained until many years after its appearance in the series, in the 2012 issues of Shnen Jump with its promotional card. Fanatics far and wide due to its reputation held in the main series and cards that people can collect.
The card's legend and continuing legacy grasps the hearts of many who remember the monster's appearance in 2003. To this day, Obelisk remains a statute of strength and unbelievable power for Trading Card Game players to enjoy and play.
Cons Banned from all Trading Card Game tournaments After the card was summoned, Kaaba uses Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon to attack and destroy Yuri's Soldier of Stone.
Compared to the other monster cards listed so far, Ultimate Dragon can be used in tournaments and elsewhere, acting as more than just a collectible in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Even though the card can be fusion summoned by fusing three Blue-Eyes White Dragons together, it doesn't stop there.
If possible in a duel, the player can also fuse Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon and Black Luster Soldier together to summon Dragon Master Knight, a Monster card beyond belief with 5,000 Attack and Defense Points. While difficult to make that move, it still serves a purpose to destroy the opponent during a match.
Pros Extremely high Attack and Defense Points of 5,000 Points each Eligible in Trading Card Game tournaments Monster card cannot be destroyed by DARK, EARTH, WATER, FIRE, or WIND Monster cards Pot Of Greed was first introduced in Episode 65 and 66 of the main series during a battle against Yuri and Strings, one of Mark's so-called brainwashed slaves.
Strings activate Pot Of Greed during the 11th turn but is ultimately defeated by Yuri in Episode 67. As most fans state that it is by far the strongest card ever with no disadvantages, it is a positive note to state that it is banned because nearly all players in tournaments would have this Spell card in their decks.
It is based on the fictional game of Duel Monsters created by manga artist Kabuki Takanashi, which is the main plot device during the manga franchise, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and its various anime adaptions and spin-off series. The Trading Card Game was launched by INAMI in 1999 in Japan and 2002 in North America, being named as the top-selling trading card game in the world by Guinness World Records in 2009, having sold over 22 billion cards worldwide.
Simply, Blue-Eyes White Dragon is one, with only a great value of Attack and Defense Points, but no effect whatsoever. Out of the main deck, Ritual Monsters are Monster cards that also require a Special Summon called a Ritual Summon.
