Not Yu-Gi-Oh GX! The original series. It doesn/t matter if it/s magic, monster, or trap. Just the best Yu-Gi-Oh cards in general.

The Top TenXW

1Exodia the Forbidden One

Amazing card! You win a duel if you have all the forbidden parts and exodia! Its only level 3!

But it's so easy to disrupt the strategy by seeing their hand and using card destruction

Exodia! OBLITERATE! When this card comes out, you're dead meat!

Exodia what more can I say the sickest card can not be killed infinity stats absolute beast try ti lock it up in a chain to strong gonna obliterate you to the shadow realm.

Which pack you get all 5 pieces of exodia

2Slifer the Sky Dragon

The best of the three god cards by far. Its always ben my favorite god card, IT GAINS 1000 ATK FOR EVERY CARD IN YOUR HAND! Vote for it!

İt is almost impossible to summon exodia guys. Yes you can't use god cards in a duel but there is the new playable egyptian god card serie. The effects are
Almost equal to the unplayable ones. And if you paly with an enemy who has exodia, you can beat him. Because when you summon a god card, either players
Can't activate any effects of monsters, spell and trap cards. So, Exodia can do anything to a god card.

Slifer is to beast to explain he always wins against about anything! I was again thinking I was going to lose but he basically destroyed my best friends' red eyes, blue eyes white dragon, and his twin headed thunder dragon! I run a dragon deck like my friend and slifer is my best dragon yet even counting blue eyes ultimate dragon!

Five card combo

3The Winged Dragon of Ra

Best monster card! It saved me when I thought I was about to lose in a tournament with my friends! It's one of the best monster cards I've ever gotten!

I got the tournament legal version and it totally rocks I need the other two cards though to make an ultimate deck

Give one thousand life points and wipe out your opponent's cards for good

This sucks because you drop to 100 life points

4Obelisk the Tormentor

Obelisk is the best guys. He can totally kick some butt. I mean with 4000 attack points your set. I have one its a king of my deck. My blue eyes ultimate and white dragon are second but obelisk is my big powerhouse of my deck

Obelisk is the most powerful egyptian gods because of his abilitys. Obelisk can easily defeat slifer and ra because he has abilites that will not backfire at all.

Man, this card is just epic, the picture is amazing, and the attack is beast, I mean, its just superior to the other two Egyptian god cards, I wish I had the tournament legal version, but I only have the legal version of Ra, regardless, I would trade Ra for Obelisk any day.

Obelisk... Tribute 2 to destroy all your opponent controls. #call of the haunted time

5Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon

No effect but it has a very strong monster combination spell cards is great

Can you get 3 of these on the field?
( Yu-Gi-Oh! Isn't boring.. It's just a children's card game )

Its awesome I absolutely love this card I want it now so anyone with it give me the card

Forgot one thing, five-headed dragon has more attack and defense.

6Five Headed Dragon

Even though it needs so much dragon type monsters, it is so strong atk-5000 definitely-5000, its stats is almost the same as elite master knight, I always defeat my classmate with this card.

Amazing card, 5000 attack the highest in the game and 5000 defense! And can't be destroyed by battle by Earth, Water, Fire, Wind or Dark monsters! Plus if you have Royal decree out it can't be mirror forced or sakuretsu armored or anything, AND if you have you have a lord of D on the field it's safe from card effects too! BOOM

Strongest Monster in the game and just overall one of the best. I dare you to be able to summon this powerhouse!

This had never loses

7Blue Eyes White Dragon

I love this card it rocks! Although I did a mistake of trading both of my only Blue Eyes. It will always be my favorite card. I like it because you can fuse it to make 2 really awesome cards(blue eyes ultimate dragon and dragon master knight)

One I the most iconic and powerful cards in the game. On their own they aren't exactly an unstoppable force but that's not why they are so good. They are the key to some of the three most powerful cards in the game. If you fuse three together you get the mighty blue eyes ultimate dragon then if you fuse that with black luster soldier you get the dragon master knight. However slightly more experienced players will want a card than can raise its attack every turn and is immune to effects so tribute the blue eyes ultimate dragon to special summon the blue eyes shining dragon. I have used this card many times and not once has it been destroyed. It takes a real strategy to bring it down so if you can spring it on your opponent Theseus is yours.

Not only is it the most beautiful dragon ever, but it's also the basic foundation for the most powerful cards of all time. Blue Eyes alone has 3,000 ATK. Combined three of those bad boys together you get the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon with 4,500 ATK. Combine the Ultimate Dragon with a Black Luster Solider, you get the Dragon Master Night with 5,000 ATK. Spare one of your Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragons to send out a Blue Eyes Shining Dragon. A super powerful card right there. Anyways, you can't get any of those powerful monsters without starting off with a Blue Eyes White Dragon.

I was given my one I don't combine my blue eyes I haven't got the right cards but its definitely meat to be in the top ten for sure

8Dark Magician Girl

Dark Magician Girl is just simply awesome and her effect makes her stronger too. She is practically a Dark Magician but the opposite gender. So in turn, she deserves second place. Maybe even first.

Of course She is very strong.

Theoretically her attack power is limitless.

And she have a very good balance between her attack power and her defense power.

Many monsters have a good attack or a defense, but a very bad defense or attack.

Dark magician girl is very strong and have much power, doesn't matter attack or defense.

She's cute though, I wish will have a dark magician girl show, I think anime lovers will love it, mostly yugioh lovers, I wish it happen someday, because dark magician girl has a looks, charm, and appeal to the audience, and she's deserving to have her own spot, I wish anime companies will appreciate it...

The best magician ever when it comes to attack and defense

9Rainbow Dragon

I use crystal beast and if rainbow dragon is out, I dominate

I have this card its also called rainbow neos its the best I got it in a twilight pack from argos £12.99 came with 3 packets and 3 bonus packs great! Epic I thin

This card is awesome super strong and beautiful. I have many cards gem beast so if I get it I'm the king.

When I use this card I always win

10Dark Magician

It's an old card, but also a card that was one of the first cards ever realeased. It also has strong attack points and ok defense points and it looks pretty cool. Plus it is one of the most famous cards in the world, and its stronger than Red Eyes B. Dragon! They even named more cards after Dark Magician; Dark magian girl, Dark Magician of Chaos, Dark Magician of Arkana and more! So I'm here to say, "Vote for Dark Magician! " - fallenfannumber1

Let's face it, no card is more iconic to the series or has as many backup cards as the Dark Magician. It practically defines the Spellcaster type. - jessicaclaytor

Came with my first deck, I loved the heck out of it.

It was probably my favorite card 8 years ago.
I always played with my cousin, and beat him with it.

Best card ever

?Junk Warrior

Incredibly reliable monster with solid attack and defense

?Soul Drain Dragon

The Contenders

11Cyber End Dragon

This is the best card for it can deal a piercing damage when it attacks a defense position monster. You can also make a combo with this card to kill your opponent in a single turn. For example, 3 cyber dragons, 1 power bond, 1 heavy storm, and 1 dark hole can kill your opponent in a single turn. First, activate dark hole and heavy storm to clear the opponents field and then activate power bond to summon cyber end dragon and use it to direct your opponents life points, so to reduce the life points to 0 and win the game. There are also other combination of cyber end dragon cards to make a one turn kill to your opponents life points.

This card is the best card ever. You can use this card in so many yugioh stragisties that can obliterate your opponent Best card ever

CED is the way to go if you want a complete powerhouse that's easy to summon. With 4000 ATK, piercing damage and easy summoning requirements (there's so many cards that can take Cyber Dragons place) this is truly a card without equal.

I find it funny that Exodia and Ultimate Blue Eyes are in the top 2, since Exodia needs all its limbs to be any help and Ultimate Blue Eyes is easy to counter with traps and spells.

He is very nice.

Well, what can I say this card. Wow. Got a ritual raven to summon it and when it is out it will not be stopped, even if they manage to kill it after the killing pain and agony trying to take it down, I quickly activate a monster reborn or call of the haunted. carnage begins once more.

Relinquished is easily a valuable card to have in your deck. When I used to play, I always hated ritual summoning, but this card isn't much of a problem to deal with. You can sacrafise a low level monster to summon it and relinquished's effects are probably at the top of the game. He takes control of a monster and takes that monster's attack and defense. If your opponent attacks and successfully destroys it, then you don't loose any life points; instead the damage is delt to them. I don't know of any monster that can beat this card, only spell and trap cards.

You can't beat it. Something comes on the field, "oh I'll just eat that."

#1 best card of all time

V13 Comments

Essential in most decks. One of the best effects for a level 6 monster. Before acquiring this card, I was always losing against my friends... with my Jinzo deck, I really frustrate them.


This needs to be in the top 10. All the other cards up there are overpowered or famous (dark magician girl), and needs more cards like this.

Easily one of the best cards to frustrate your opponent

14The Creator God of Light, Horakhty

Yes but this card can be easily stopped by the winged dragon of ra so this card should be under the God cards. so this should be in 4th place because all the good cards could hold up against it winged dragon of ra would destroy it. Obelisk would use his effect and since this card is so strong it will most likely be in attack mode so then the controller of obelisk would be able to reduce your life points to zero. Then slifer could go into wildfire mode and be able to survive for ten turns without being destroyed and would have ten thousand attack for those ten turns and by that time you should have gotten something to destroy it with so that is y it should be in fourth place and not first. First place should belong to the winged dragon of ra if you wanna know how to get the winged dragon of ra' s attack 20,000 or higher visit my list fatkideatingpie1234567890 is my user name. - fatkideatingpie1234567890

This card should be #1! How this isn't in at least the top 10, I don't know. There isn't a card stronger than Horakhty. The moment this monster is summoned, you automatically win! I sure hope you consider puting this in at least top 10. The fact that is below #10 makes list idiotic. I hope to see better results in the future.

Whoever just posted the comment saying"Yes but this card can be easily stopped by the winged dragon of ra so this card should be under the God cards. So this should be in 4th place because all the good cards could hold up against it winged dragon of ra would destroy it. Obelisk would use his..." Has obviously not ever read The Creator God of Light because she requires the three God Cards to Summon from your Hand, and once you get her on the field, you automatically WIN. So there's not even a SMALL chance of the God Cards deafening her, I mean she is created from the Egyptian God Cards, meaning she must be a lot stronger, so there's no way they can defeat her.

Instant win exodia requires you to have five cards at once, but you instant win with this card as soon as it is summoned.

He is cool looking cause he is a marshmallow and each time your opponent tries to attack it face-down, your opponent takes 1000 pts. of damage! And he cannot be destroyed by battle so I keep switching him to DEF mode. - dmagicatk24

I have 3 of these in my deck. He can't be destroyed by battle, so put him in defense position and your life points will always be safe. Plus you should get mashmallon eyes with him it's a magic card that makes your opponent only attack marshmallon. Stack up your deck with this guy and you'll be sure to win.

Best card I know

16Harpie's Feather Duster

IS the best card of mai Valentine.

17Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy Of The End

Game Breaker of Awesomeness. This card should definitely be up on the list. Nuking the field for a small price? Yes please! 300 damage per destroyed card? Great idea! Rumors that it's coming back? Awesome!

I have seen people kick my butt the moment they get out this card. I totally wish I had it, as it is an amazingly powerful card- and that's why it is banned... Unless I get my hands on one, it should definitely stay that way.

Strongest most deadliest card ever released, why it's still banned and will always be. This is a legendary card people!

18Mirror Force

Mirror force in my opinion is like the best trap card we will ever know. Basically if your opponent attacks when this is set there screwed. There monsters are destroyed and you can attack directly next turn. Its a handy dandy trap.

I don't know why this isn't higher on the list.
No card infuriates me more.

One of the most anoying things ever is when you've got an army of strong cards, you attack your opponents weak last monster and then all of your monsters die.

19Exodia Necross

Amazing card should be in top ten

Indestructible and unlimited power

This card can't be destroyed by battle spells trap or monster effects and gains 500 attack and defense every turn it is a really good card if you play painful choice for the 5 exidia cards

Is really good but can be dealt with

V5 Comments
20Wicked Avatar

The wicked avatar should be number 1 I mean it's the strongest card in the game!

What can you do to it on the first two turns no trap or spell can touch it and it is stronger than any monster by 100 points unless you can get The Forbidden One Exodia or The Creator God of Light, Horakhty

It can even have 1,000,000 ATK. This is the best card ever dude. Do you feel me boys and girls? If you agree vote to move it up the list!

Wicked Avatar is powerful however Your Copying another monsters attack your committing suicide to your monster You must be in a tight spot if your using wicked avatar I use him as a last resort. Unless your using Ax of Despair or something leveling up your monsters attack what difference would it make?
