Yuugi Mutou’s ace monster card, Dark Magician has never failed to let Yuugi down. He is often supported by a number of spell and trap cards, such as Magical Hats and Thousand Blades, and even has several upgraded forms, such as Dark Sage and Dark Magician Knight.
Dark Magician Girl
Dark Magician Girl is the Dark Magician’s apprentice and is also used by Yuugi, usually to support the Dark Magician and as a backup trump card. Like the Dark Magician, she is supported with spells and traps. Yuugi’s friend Anzu has also used the Dark Magician Girl in her deck.
Blue-Eyes White Dragon
Blue-Eyes White Dragon is used by Yuugi’s rival Seto Kaiba, who utilizes not one but three of these mighty beasts. Said to be one of the strongest Duel Monsters, the Blue-Eyes is able to overwhelm most opponents through sheer power alone. The three dragons can also combine into Kaiba’s ultimate weapon, the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon.
Kuriboh is looked down upon by most duelists for its small attack points and tiny, fluffy body. Despite Kuriboh’s reputation, it is one of Yuugi’s most trusted and valued cards. He commonly combines it with spells as well as other tactics to surprise opponents who consider the fluff-ball to be no threat.
Red-Eyes Black Dragon
Red-Eyes Black Dragon is the trump card of Yuugi’s best friend Jonouchi. Whereas the Blue-Eyes White Dragon represents power, Red-Eyes represents potential. Red-Eyes is the strongest beast in Jonouchi’s arsenal. When Red-Eyes’ power alone is not enough, Jonouchi transforms his dragon into other forms to boost its power.
Black Luster Soldier
Black Luster Solider is a secret weapon in Yuugi’s deck, having enough power to rival even the legendary Blue-Eyes White Dragon. When the tricks of Yuugi’s magicians cannot win the day, he calls upon this ultimate soldier for its raw power. This soldier can also combine with the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon to form one of the greatest Duel Monsters of all, Dragon Master Knight.
Slifer the Sky Dragon
Slifer the Sky Dragon is one of the unique Egyptian God cards and is most often associated with Yuugi, being the first God card he acquired. Slifer’s twin mouths offer it dual forms of attacks. This monster was originally named Osiris but was renamed Slifer after Roger Slifer, a co-producer of the 4Kids dub of Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Duel Monsters.
Obelisk the Tormentor
Obelisk the Tormentor is the second Egyptian God card and was primarily used by Seto Kaiba. Obelisk’s power is immense and he possesses the ability to crush opponents by using his ally monsters as sacrificial offerings to increase his own power to infinite levels.
Winged Dragon of Ra
The Winged Dragon of Ra is the last and most powerful of the Egyptian Gods. Ranking above Slifer and Obelisk, not even the powers of the other two God cards can hurt Ra. Possessing the power of the immortal phoenix, Ra can both give and take life and even make itself invincible for brief periods of time.
Exodia, the Forbidden One
Exodia is the most powerful Duel Monster to exist within Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Duel Monsters. His power was so great that he had to be split into five separate cards in order to keep his power at bay. When all five pieces are assembled and Exodia becomes whole again, it is no exaggeration to say that nothing can stand in his way.
