The Top Ten

The Winged Dragon of Ra
The egptain god cards like slifer, obilisk, and raw are the strongest cards, but exodia is unbeatable and raw is stronger then slifer
The Winged Dragon of Ra is by far the best card in all of Duel Monsters. For one, he is an Egyptian god card, which by itself makes him unstoppable. Second, his effects make him good
Ra can put his attack as the attack of all the monster it has sacrifised. It can make an amaxing attack
[Newest]He will take the pants off you

2The Dark Master - Exodia
Exodia is the strongest Yugioh monster easily. You don't even have to summon all his pieces to win. When his parts are together in your hand, you win! Plus, he is so strong that he had to be split up into five card! That's how powerful he is. When he is full again, he is so strong he guarantees you a win
Exodia is by far the strongest monster in yu gi oh
He is the ULTIMATE weapon to win the game!
[Newest]Exodia is the most powerful and original card from yu gi oh

3Slifer the Sky Dragon
HE LIKES TO BATTLE A LONG SIDE WITH THE PHAROH AND I HOPE SLIFER WINS AGINST ALL OYJER MONSTERS AND OTHER GOD CARDS but that's just my opinion I was just wondering I have been watching yu-gi-oh on my T.V. and I really like seeing slifer the sky dragon on my T.V. because he looks cool and I really wish I could ride on slifer the sky dragon and how can you find all the god cards in real life and why are they really hard to find in virginia because I have been trying to find all the god cards in every yu-gi-oh packs and I can't seem to find the god cards in virginia and what yu-gi-oh packs do I find the yu-gi-oh god cards? Do you thinkbyou can tell me what packs I can find the yu-gi-oh god cards?
He can beat almost any card. If you have 6 cards in your hand, he would have incredible attack and defense in thousands. I once had 10 cards in my hand and that made sliver the sky dragon have 10000 attack and defense power. Sliver is so awesome!
Well For Starters, Slifer Was Destroyed by The Pharoh But That Doesn't Make Him Weak In Real Life. Second, part Of Slifer's Abillity Gives him His Boost -For Ex Someone Normal Summons Slifer And Has Like About 15, Times That to 400 Slifer Would Be The Ultimate God. You Know How Peple have a Favorite Card, They Judged That Card Because They Saw A Person Who Won a Duel With it. Don't Judge Slifer By The Way He Looks or his Attacks. If You Like Slifer And Your Friend Doesn't, don't Be Afraid To Tell Them just Tell Them If You Have To.
[Newest]This card by far is in my 'third strongest card' even my cousins can't defeat me!

4Five Headed Dragon
It is very hard to summon but I have never lost a Yugioh card game if I summoned this card. Plus, it can't be destroyed by battle with a wind, water, fire, dark or earth monster. AMAZING!
I think that 5 headed dragon is the best card if you have dragon type deck
5 headed dragon is one of the strongest monster in the yugioh game AWESOME!
[Newest]If your opponent doesn't have a light monster they're screwed.

5Obelisk The Tormentor
I like obelisk for his three tribute summon effect I once did this against a friend of mine it really caught him off guard he had silfer on the field with 7 cards in his hand
Blue eyes ultimate dragon can beat it but it is still an incredible card
He has 4000 atk people nothing is able to beat this king of destraction fist of fury rocks the house down he is the best ever
[Newest]He is the god of strength

6The Creator God of Light, Horakhty
Best card ever! Almost the same as exodia.
Here is his effect:Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by Tributing 3 monsters whose original names are "Obelisk the Tormentor", "The Winged Dragon of Ra", and "Slifer the Sky Dragon", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. The Special Summon of this card cannot be negated. The player that Special Summons this card wins the Duel.
Sweet, hein!
She's actually the strongest since she destroyed effortlessly Zorc Necrophades in just one hit. And by doing so, she's definitely much stronger than the rest for example The Great Leviathan. She's actually considered the ultimate card for being the only one where enemies are automatically considered lose when this card is successfully summoned. Also, the three Egyptians god when combined will summon horakhty and I think she's also unbeatable when battled with exodia.
It doesn't matter exodia's an instant win if you have all five in your hand or the field
The combination of three egyption god cards when it is on the field game over
[Newest]Awesome card I ever got!

I have never lost a battle with these cards, yet it's still a little difficult to summon him since you have to summon all of the pieces of him. Huff.
Very strong card. Catches many opponents by surprise.
It is powerful, however if you don't have all in the hand, and your opponent activates card destruction, swoosh they go to the graveyard, and it is hard to get those cards back into the hand from the graveyard, unless you have 5 monster reincarnation cards which you can't have, but if you have a card that gives you back a spell from the graveyard, then you can activate 2 more of the monster reincarnation cards to get them all back into the hand.
[Newest]Ya serious, this guy is the definitely the strongest card in the game, just watch yu gi duel with him.

8Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon
He is a thunder bolt that will never brake and he is definitely one of the strongest yu gi oh cards ever used
Strongest dragon with original Atkins that can be summoned again after being destroyed plus mega morph him then he's at 9000 Atkins and have. Lord of d so he can't be targeted by card effects
[Newest]My friends call me Kaiba because of how many times I placed this down, it's my new signature card AWESOME!

9Neo Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon
This ultimate beast is mighty it can negate any cards effect it has more attack it can absorb all the overlay units and gain 500 attack for each on. Also it can keep attacking. It can simply crush the gods cards combined with the attack of 4500 and the unescapable effect this monster is clearly one of the top strongest monster.
Its a cool card
This is from number hunter
[Newest]Kaito's monsters are the best.

10Red Nova Dragon
He is practically immortal a powerhouse straight from the jaws of hell
Immune to spells and traps plus he can prevent his own death if you manage to somehow over power him which is near impossible
My name Joseph Rex this card monster red nova dragon had all level stars what I think about this card had 3500 atk points is the best one red nova dragon is much biger in yugioh 5ds is the best of the best I love the card is powerful one
Undeniable a beatstick from hell and one of the boldest cards int the game
[Newest]I have a red nova dragon but I can't summon him because I don't have a archfiend dragon

The Contenders

11Blue Eyes Shining Dragon
Can kill red nova dragon by negating his banishing effect. Can also kill five headed dragon. When I used a dragon deck I've had this card at 8100 Atkins points and killed my opponent in one hit. Plus most effects don't effect him like magic cylinder. This card should at least be higher than blue eyes ultimate.
Nearly invulnerable, and when summoned is only 300 attack points weaker the blue eyes ultimate. This has to be in the top ten, even if it can be hard to summon at times
Almost indestructible a lot better than blue eyes ultimate when using a dragon deck better than the god cards can also kill Five headed dragon and obelisk and can negate magic cylinder
[Newest]Red nova dragon's effect can be negated by this card 4⃣

12Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
Awesome card. You can summon him by just tributing 1 dragon on the field. His ability lets him special summon 1 dragonn in your graveyard or hand.
I never lost a duel with him and combine him with the bule eyes and lord D and he is almost unstoppable his effect is boss I have 2 of them and never lost I bet my friend he has the toon bule eyes 3 bule eyes and 3 red eyes and lord D

Even though it has the drawback ability of having to tribute a monster per turn, it can still be a powerful monster at play especially when brought back by call of the haunted. It also gets bigger and stronger as it falls. And yubel can still be special summoned by cards like witch of black forest and mystic tomato. It works really well with tragoedia and monster reborn. (tragoedia effect- discard yubel- can take control of a monster that is yubel's level like ra or slifer- monster reborn to get yubel back, summon another monster- GG
She won me 5 duels and beat slifer
This thing can't be killed. I've dualed against it multiple times. I was barely able to win those duals.

14Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder
Hamon has super effect when you destroy enemy monster, he makes your enemy pay 1000 life points as tribute, so if you attack lover level monster in attack position, he losses half or more of his total life points... Laugh out loud
Yo this guy is awesome!

15Stardust Dragon
Stardust Dragon is a very powerful card. Its attack is a whopping 2500 which as a synchro is very strong. Also the card is one of the legendary 5 Dragons so it has a reputation.
I have 5 different synchro dragon cards and this is far by my favorite and it's so powerful!
Stardust dragon is so cool I always summon it out when I have tthe cards I need

16Dark Magician
Very original, not the bestbut original
Dark magician is the bomb!
I have the dark magician

17Shooting Quasar Dragon
It's the strongest synchro monster in game, it has 4000 atk and definitely, it can attack at lest 2 times in a turn also once per turn you can negate a card or effect activation and destroy the card, if you can destroy it he will leave you a present a shooting star dragon
Amazing in correct deck
Shooting Quasar Dragon is the second good card in the game my opinion because I can always bring him in to the field field adnd I always win
[Newest]I have one of those and I a the same guy as before in the red nova dragon comment

18Raviel, Lord of Phantasms
Yeah every turn it summons a fiend token with 1000 attack and defense which can be used as tributes and has a whopping power of 4000 attack and defense and can get stronger when equipped with the tokens!
I have this card and in my opinion it isas good if not netter then obolsk

19Dragon Master Knight
Best card in my deck, I have some card called hex something which lets me use as fusion material instead of having to summon blue eyes ultimate in its place
This card works great and like the other person said it's not as good as exodia or the god cards but with a lot of dragon monsters it's attack gets REALLY high!
I found this card one day. He is super strong but can be beaten by Egyptian gods or Tragegodia with enough cards in your hand or united we stand. I reckon it should be higher up to 12 or 9
[Newest]How can blue eyes ultimate dragon be stronger that this card when you have to tribute that card to make this card.

20Uria Lord of Searing Flames
For every trap card in your graveyard he gains 1000 attack and defense power. So much fun to see opponents faces. LOL!
The First Sacred Beast, Awesome powers!
Best card in the world this card kicks butt. It wins every dual

21Red Eyes B. Dragon
The Red Eyes brings potential. Can be the strongest card in yugioh if you help it with supportive cards.
It is may second fave flaming fire ball is explosive when it hits the target
Red eyes and good attack explosives
[Newest]Can't beat the gods but very strong

Relinquished can take your opponents monster and your enemy is hurt with battle damage too. If Relinquished would be destroyed, the equipped monster is destroyed so relinquished can take the stronger monster
So cool he can take control of you enemy's monsters and use them. And if he is attacked by a stronger monster he can use the monster he took control of a a sacrifice and you opponent takes all the damege
This card can take any monster card's attack and use it against your opponent! Beside this card is easy to summon because its a level one. You know what's better? A Gravity Bind on the field. After you do those... GG!
[Newest]I have it he is amazing

23Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
Also the 'Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Evening Twilight' is good to, though this card can attack twice instead of just banish one, plus the twilight one is very hard to summon, you have to have an equal number of light and dark monsters in your graveyard then send all of the light or all of the dark to your banished pile or removed from play. So I vote for envoy of the beginning.
Awesome card. For a light and dark deck. Easy to summon, great effects. Good attack
Powerful easy to summon banishing effect

24Red Eyes Darkness Dragon
Yet again I have one! And I use it a lot its very powerful
Best card for every dragon type monster in your graveyard you gain 300 attack perfect if you use D. Tribe then dispose of those cards to your graveyard.

25Exodia the Forbidden One
Duude he's baller he can have put to infinite attack the only downside is no defense XI

26Blue Eye White Dragon
He should be in the top 10 not #54th
Yeah way to go push him up to the top 10
He is the strongest monster without a special ability to help him out.
[Newest]Blue eyes white dragon is better than dark magician it should be in the top 10

27Rainbow Dragon
It's very strong if you have crystal beast deck it's hard to get him out but he will destroy even the god cards when he is out you can add his power by 1000 for each of the crystal beasts you still have out are sacrificed
Very powerful if you have a crystal beast deck

28Majestic Red Dragon
I have this card and I honestly think it is the best card because it can't be destroyed by card kills all the defense mode cards on the field whats cooler than that
I agree that the majestic red dragon is an awesome card and that it should be put in the top 20 not top 30

29Dark Armed Dragon
This is generally the best dark-typed dragon-typed ever created
Have it love it

30Emperor of Thunder - Hammon
Hamon is a really strong card and you can win easily with him cause if you destroy one card you can inflict 1000 damage to your opponents life points

31Lord of Searing Flames - Uria
Uria can destroy 1 magic or trap card every turn,
And his/her attack and defense is affected by number of continous trap card in graveyard, for those who use a deck with a numerous continous trap card like me..
He is my ace!

32Divine Serpent
Infinite attack and infinite defense
Once you have this card on the field you cannot lose
On YGOPro, my Orichalcos OTK deck is practically unbeatable. I've only been able to get Serpent out twice, but when I did, it was invulnerable to all, and I won the game in one turn. Totally reccomend using a deck of this nature.

33Crush Card Virus
Not a monster but it cripples some of the best decks.

34Red Dragon Archfiend
It is an ultimate monster. The attack power of 3000 is immense as it is stronger then any card I have ever witnessed. Its effect is awesome because if you synchro summon Red Dragon Archfiend and your opponent has several set monsters then you could attack one monster and the rest would be destroyed so in one turn you can have an advantage over your opponent even though you the last turn he had much more cards on the field than you.

35Elemental Hero Magma Neos
He gains 300 attack points for every cards on the field, plus an extra 500 from neos space and equip spells also give 300 extra atk. In the final episode of GX Jaden would have won with this if yugi did not have magic cylinder. But a flaw is that when shuffled into the extra deck by its own effect every card on the field is shuffled into the deck even yours and you can not set or summon any more cause its you end phase so have a contact out for a deck using this card.
This card is my favorite it gains 400 atk every card on the field but it go back to the fusion deck

36The Creator
Don't even have to be in your hand to win in your deck.

37Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon
I think this card rocks
I think this guy looks sick and also it's effect is a pretty good one. I have never lost a match with this card
How is red eyes higher

38Judgment Dragon
Easy to get out all you need is 4 lightsworn monsters with different names in your grave, pay 1000 life points to destroy all other cards on the field. One of the best nuke cards in the game.
This is The most powerful Card ever. This card destroy any Card in a blink of an eye. If you have more than 3000 life point in 3 turns your oponent can say godbye to The duel. Not even The Egyptian gods stand agains him.

39Monster Reborn

40The Wicked Avatar
It's affect us that it is 100 points stronger than the strongest monster on the field meaning it is the strongest yugioh monster ever made
Why does this card be at the bottom it is by far the best
So if I summon the wicked avatar and my opponent summons exodia
Who wins the duel?

41Armityle the Chaos Phantom
Gains 10,000 attack points each turn of mine! The best card I think
I have this card and it all ways wins me the duel but it is hard to get out but over all he rocks
Pretty good, as long as your opponent doesn't have magic cylinder or draining shield set. Good counter for Heart-Earth dragon as you don't take any damage from its attack, but it definitely needs good suport to not get destroyed right away by any attacks, and without suport, it leaves you wide open for a OTK.

42Winged Kuriboh
The reason I picked this card because there are so many combos you can do with this card. when you summon this card on the field make sure you have mage power or united we stand in your so you can give it to your opponent monster then use battle mania so they are forced to attack then you win
Really good with a huge

43Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World
He's so easy to summon,2700 ATK plus if discarded you get to destroy a card. By far the best card

44Cyber End Dragon
This Monster is a beast! Just read its effect: If this card attacks a defense position monster inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent. That combined with a massive 4000 Atk/ 2800 definitely it makes it one of the strongest cards in the game! Speaking about attack strength using Power Bond or Limiter Removal you can boost its attack up to 8000-16000 and beyond! Plus it's extremely easy to summon because of Cyber Dragon Nova's effect or the effect cards Cyber Repair Plant, Cyber Network or Cybernetic Fusion Support. And if you run a decent cyber deck then you should be drawing into the cards you need for th Otk, I suggest a 40 card minimum deck.
This card should be much higher on this ranking it packs 4000 attack and if the opposing monster has less than 2800 defense it inflicts the damage to life points. It rocks!

45Thousand-Eyes Restrict
This card is a automatic tournament winner that's why it's banned it's so powerful it will literally make your cry!
Thousand-eyes restrict is one of the best cards

46Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8
If you can get this card out on the field, your opponent can no longer use spell cards, that basically takes away one of there only chances to destroy it, and if you have a Jinzo or Royal Decree out on the field, you opponent can't activate trap cards either, oh and I almost forgot to mention this but... 3000 ATTACK

47Special Call to Fiend - Duoleduo
he is awesome he cuts the attack of all other monsters on the field in half

48Master of the Gaurd - Exodd
This card has 4000 definitely that is enough for even rainbow dragon I mean seriously this card is just plain awesome, the only thing I don't like is the Spinx tribute but seriously!
A monster made for defense! Really cool monster!

49Baby Dragon
Isn't so strong but its fun
3 star, only 1700 atk, and when you summon thousand dragon it still isn't strong

50Beelze of the Diabolic Dragons
My strongest card by far. Once it's on the field victory is already mine

51Golden Homunculus
He gains 300 attack and definitely for each removed from play monster. I'm not saying he is the strongest just should be considered for the list...

52Fire King High Avatar Garunix
^ and the Circle of the Fire Kings, Onslaught of the Fire Kings, Fire King Avatar barong, Fire King Avatar Kirin/ THE FIRE KING CANN'T GET BEAT!

53Flame Wingman
This elemental beast has an epic ability that activates when it destroys a monster. It hurts the opponents' life points equal to the destroyed monsters attack points!

54Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo
Once you put 3 destiny counters on it you win the duel.

Kuriboh is the best card in yugioh

56Number C39: Utopia Ray
I gave him a zexal weapon and he got 4400 attack
It could turn to c39utopiavictory by using Astro card
You can also Xyz Summon this card by using a "Number 39: Utopia" you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card. ) You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; it gains 500 ATK and 1 monster your opponent controls loses 1000 ATK, until the End Phase. You must have 1000 Life Points or less to activate and to resolve this effect.

57Megarock Dragon
Him with catapult zone is the ultimate combo.
His effect is very powerful I have him in my deck
Fill your deck with defensive rock monsters, then summon mega rock dragon by removing 10 or more rock monsters from your graveyard, and you will have a monster with 7000 atk or more. Doest not need tributes to summon so toriential tribute is useless.

58Gold Sarcophagus

59Man-Eater Bug

What about hundred eyes dragon?

61Number 11: Big Eye

1000 damage for a set monster :P great wall monster

63Schwarzschild Limit Dragon
His effect is awesome!
He saved me a thousand times!

64Lava Golem

65Zubaba General
This can get really strong quickly in warrior deck

66Master of Oz
Incredbel card super attack

67Number 32: Shark Drake
Where the fuc are the wicked gods? They are by far the best

68Mirror Force
The best trap card in the game;says me

69Gagaga Magician
Effect: Declare a level from 1-8, this card becomes that level until the end phase.
! Should be higher rank

70Torrential Tribute
Even if they manage to bring out the creator god of light this trap card can be used when any monster is summoned and destroys ALL monsters on the field

71Number 39: Utopia
If it were to me utopia should #2000 HE'S WEAAK!
It has a upgrade duh! It is utopia Ray

72Exodia Necross
This card is awesome when you have all the pieces of exodia in the graveyard

73Sphinx Teleia
Has a great defense at 3000 that is a keeper
A great defense at 3000

74Barbaroid, the Ultimate Battle Machine
It can Attack 2 times a turn.
Great effect and 4000 atk and definitely one nice machine

75Andro Sphinx

76The Seal of Orichalcos
Field Spell:
All monsters you control gain 500 attack. once per turn this card cannot be destroyed by card effects. While you control 2 or more face up attack position monsters, your opponent cannot target your monster (s) with the lowest attack for an attack. When this card is activated Destroy All special summoned monsters you control. You cannot special summon monsters from your extra deck. you can only activate one the seal of orichalcos per duel.

Sick Field Card?
This card is pretty sweet minus the fact you can't summon any monsters from your extra deck but your opponent can.

77Number C88: Gimmick Puppet Disaster Leo
The god card in number.
Very good for a control deck

78Zorc Necrophades
He has beaten exodia

79Millennium Shield

80White Night Dragon
This card is a lethal card compared to many cause it destroys spells and traps that target it and you can destroy your on spell to make it as the target of an attack instead
This Card is OP! 3000 atk just like blue eyes, but has a amazing eff. can't be effect by traps or spell and you can send to the grave ti with the attack of your opponent's monster to it.
At 3,000 ATK and 2,500 definitely its just as strong as Blue Eyes plus its affect negates spells and trap cards

81Ancient Crimson Ape

82Skill Drain
Stops almost every deck out there in current meta cold, Also the only card if out on the field first can negate venomminga the snake diety. You can go on an on about this card or that when the fact is Skill drain takes all your monsters effects even Jinzo's if out first and shuts them down.

83Victory Dragon
Banned yes I know, but the only card in duel monsters that not only will win you the game but wins you the match. which is why it will forever be banned in tounrys.

84Number Ci1000: Numerronius Numerronia
5 Level 13 monsters
Cannot be destroyed by battle except with "Number" monsters. When a "Number C1000: Numerronius" you control is destroyed: You can Xyz Summon this card from your Extra Deck, by using it as the Xyz Material. This card cannot be destroyed by card effects. This card cannot attack. Your opponent cannot target other monsters for an attack. During your opponent's End Phase, if your opponent did not declare an attack this turn, you win the Duel. When an opponent's monster declares an attack: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate that attack, and if you do, gain Life Points equal to that monster's ATK. WOW.

85Darklord Desire

86Mine Mole

87Gogogo Golem
1nce per turn he can be made unstoppable without you having to do anything! Sick or what!

Okay it's not a monster card but so what if your opponent has a lot of spell cards on his side you can use tornado to flip them all up and destroy one.

89Susa Soldier

90Hero Kid

91Remove Trap
Can remove a trap.

92Horus The Black Flame Dragon Lv 6

Sick it has the power of a number card.

94Malefic Truth Dragon

95Magic Cylinder
Basically if you can end the game with an attack while it's face down well your screwed

96Number 96: Dark Mist
Once per battle, during either player's turn, when an attack is declared involving this card and an opponent's monster: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; halve the ATK of the opponent's monster, and if you do, this card gains that same amount of ATK
My favourite card, but extremely easy to beat with card effect

97Gagaga Girl

98Gagaga Child
Has a cool effect

99Darklord Asmodeus
I have him (100% original) and he is my best card. He himself is ok but his tokens are awesome :D (Asmo token (ATK1800/DEF1300/Fairy/Dark/Level 5) Can't be destroyed by card effects) (Deus token (ATK1200/DEF1200/Level 3/Fairy/Dark) Can't be destroyed by battle.
I am never giving him away.

100ZW - Unicorn Spear
You can equip this to utopia ray & he gains 1900 atk also he stops all effects best card for utopia
