Top Ten Most Annoying Yugioh Cards

I've been playing Yu-Gi-Oh! For at least 9 years now so I though it would appropriate to make this list. Feel free to leave your feedback. Also, this list covers the most ANNOYING cards, not the worst or most useless.

The Top Ten

1 Monster Reborn

Ah, that was a much simpler time when we did not have this watered down versions of Monster reborn. One Spell Card resurrects one monster, no strings attached. What made this card ultra annoying is the fact that this is considered a special summon and that you can resurrect your opponent's monsters. - hendiadyoin

This is one of those "I-win-the-game-from-nowhere" type cards, so it definitely deserves to be here. - PlaystationArchfiend

One of those cards you love using, except when your opponent uses it.

I kiled my opponent with their own monster - 101gamerx

2 Marshmallon

It's not the effect of this card that pisses me off - it's the principle. I mean just imagine summoning Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, getting ready to roast your opponent, only to find that your immensely powerful beams of godlike energy can't actually hurt your opponent because there is a marshmallow in the way. A MARSHMALLOW. If this card was a badass dragon or soldier, that would make sense. But, quite frankly, the fact that a blob of sugar, starch and gelatin can block any attack in the Yugioh universe pisses me off.

Had a bunch of op synchro cards, but couldn't get around two of these. Got rid of one, but then opponent uses effect to destroy the only one that can destroy marshmallon...

Love this card every time it is attacked you lose 1000 life points add Marshmallon glasses and you have to attack it - mew28221

You don't lose 1000 every time and the glasses only make it so you have to target it for an attack not forced to attack - Ryuu

Cannot be destroyed by battle and can get to your opponents life points!

3 Raigeki

Destroying all of your opponents monsters with no cost definitely gives this card a reason to stay banned. - PlaystationArchfiend

Raigeki, an effect so simple yet totally OP. It should be renamed to "Suck it, Loser! " - hendiadyoin

Hell, this card puts other cards like dark hole, or any other card effects that has strings attached to it to shame!

Total destruction in a single card

4 Magic Cylinder

I just let my opponent summon blue eyes or something and then when they attack I just flip it over and simply say "i win lol"

I love this card it really pulls my spell caster deck together and I usually win if I pull this at the beginning of a game

I love playing it, beats my opponents every time


*flip card*

gg, nice try

5 Tour Guide From The Underworld

One of my most hated cards, this card is ranked so high on my list because it's effect is a free Special Summon from the deck & is can also lead to an immediate rank 3 exceed summon. Wind-Up Zenmaines is broken as hell, Leviar the Sea Dragon is sometimes hard to get around & Number 17: Leviathan Dragon can change the game around. To sum things up, this card is practically the cancer of Yugioh. - PlaystationArchfiend

God this card is so annoying, anyone who doesn't think so has obviously not experienced how much it can throw off a true strategy.

I always come up against this card no matter what and I hate it so much

I like this card becasue its very useful

6 Chaos Emperor Dragon-Envoy Of The End

When this thing hits the field, you're practically screwed. - PlaystationArchfiend

Ugh, when playing against traditional decks, it always gets you. no exceptions. it doesn't help its easy to summon. if it was banish 3 light and 3 dark it would be fine, but right now? NO, JUST, NO.

This card is like a nuclear bomb to the game, so thank GOD this one is forbidden in official games.

The most annoying card ever!

7 Scrap-Iron Scarecrow

Cannot be used more than once per turn, you cannot activate a card the same turn you set it. I wish people understood this.

I have Scrap-Iron Scarecrow and it is so useful! But there is a simple way to beat it. It's a trap card, just destroy it by effect. I faced this card before and yes, its annoying, but I managed to beat it because I had Heavy Storm it was no big deal.

I love this card it is my favorite to others this card is annoying because you go to attack any monster and they play scrap-iron scarecrow they negate the attack and then they set it back down so they can use it again plus it can be used more then once if needed in a turn by what I see this is a good card unless heavy storm takes you out this card could be banned because it is such a good card no matter what generation of cards you use if you have the scrap-iron scarecrow you can always be safe

I once dulled this guy. He had Scrap-Iron Scarecrow- 3 to be exact. I had Obelisk, Slifer, and Ra on the field. They all attacked- they all got negated. That kept happening until... I DECKED OUT

8 Neo-Spacian Grand Mole

I admit I love using this card, but it's so annoying when your opponent can constantly bounce back your crap all day long. - PlaystationArchfiend

Neo-spacian grand mole is very fun to use but I feel my friends hate him lol

My friend gets pissed whenever I play this on him lol

I played against Jayden's deck in Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Generation and I was just mad that I kept on losing mainly because of this.

9 Mystical Space Typhoon

I used this card once my opponent said, 'no it's not is it? NO! That's what I wanted to not be

The only reason it pissed me off so much is that the game is so degenerate that a second turn MST isn't considered as a bad play. - TenYearsOld

My favorite Quick Spell Card. It's a petty it does not negate, though. - hendiadyoin

10 Penguin Soldier

Flip! Return this card and my only monster on the field! Direct attack! Repeat the process! What the-!?

Ah, I had this card when I was in school. I traded it away cause I thought the effect is useless. How foolish I was! - hendiadyoin

Return this card and another one on the field to your hand, and then just simply set it.

Whyy was it made :(

The Contenders

11 Exodia The Forbidden One

What the hell is this? Automatic win... Way too op and some decks just screw things up. I think the effect should say that all cards must be on the field. I use this card, but when someone uses it on me I just rage quit (dueling network)

I just think this is annoying because of the way it was brought up as this "AMAZING AWESOME CARD" then got rid of. Plus if it's so awesome and amazing and instant win and rare and expensive why isn't it a god card?

This card is terrible. You need all 5 cards in your hand to win, but the chances of that is terrible. Easily killed by "Eye Of Truth and then a card your opponents cards into their deck" combo.

To be honest not to bad unless in an exodia draw power deck...when I face the draw power deck though ;-;

12 Fiber Jar

When Flipped, this card returns all cards on the field, graveyard, and hand to their owners deck, and allows both players to draw 5 cards, effectively resetting the game except for life points. And it allows you to continue your turn and attack, allowing you to swarm your eneny and take them out. It's really annoying when your opponent has 3 in their decks, and constantly gets them. Fortunately, it's banned.

Whoever created this card is a dick! Although it's banned, that won't take away all the bad memories involving this card.

Unfair when opponent flips it, gives him a free field, to attack you directly when you have 5 cards on the hand and nothing on the field to protect you, very unfair and angering card.

Basically a reset button. - hendiadyoin

13 Marshmallon Glasses

One thing is an indestructible marshmallon... But another thing is being forced to beat a punching bag and get pwned by your opponents strong monsters

Being forced to attack an indestructible MARSHMALLOW, and even more, IS WEARING GLASSES!

Lol! Only attack a marshmallow that can't be destroyed. Wow! - Cobra-Kraken

Op right guys

14 Waboku

Really, this card can actually be beneficial to the opponent it is played against. Somebody once played this against my Blue-Eyes deck, but I got out Twin-Burst and banished both of his monsters. (OTK, anyone? )

Get this: your oponents life points can't be taken away and their monsters can't be destroyed one thaat one turn

It stupid as hell that the monsters are basically indestructible during the turn the card is activated. Before the errata, I always assumed that only affects the Life Points. - hendiadyoin

15 Black Luster Soldier-Envoy Of The Beginning Black Luster Soldier-Envoy Of The Beginning

Okay, people, let me tell you a story. So, It had been about three or four turns in a duel between me and my cousin, right? It was going so well for me because I managed to summon red nova dragon, right? Well, the very next turn I summoned it, he summoned Black luster soldier envoy of the beginning, and immediately banished red nova. I almost instantly lost the duel after that.

Konami made a HUGE mistake bringing this guy back to 1. - PlaystationArchfiend

It's good when you have it

This guy is one of the reasons I hate yugioh players.

16 Draining Shield

I only have one of these but that's all I need because its in my aroma deck when ever I gain life points I can destroy 1 monster on the field - rabid

An AMAZING card, I'm so glad I have 2!

Pretty good it's a useful trap

Its like Enchanted Javelin, but it also negats the attak

17 Zombie World

Grrr my younger brother uses it in his water machine deck. When he puts it on the field I RAGE QUIT because it affect says I cannot tribute summon so I cannot beat him with my slifer because he has a elemental hero ocean on the field and the attack is too high for my monsters to defeat. THIS CARD NEEDS TO BE BANNED! 1! The only way you can win a duel against someone using this degenerate, badly designed card is by drawing all five peices of exodia for the instant win, but by then my brother ususally summons blue eyes ultimate dragon to attack for game. WHY DID KONAMI MAKE THIS CARD!
All because I don't play the meta decks doesn't mean I can't win against them. My friend said the Magicians are meta but my blue eyes can easily defeat his dark magician! LOL!

18 Number 101: Silent Honor ARK

Absolute Cancer.

This card is the most haxed XYZ monsters if you look up to rank 4. When you summons a good monster strong as Shooting Star Dragon, and your opponent summon ARK to the field, then he/her can easily steal your card unless you put any set cards to avoid it.

All you need is Heraldry Record which would negate the activation of the effect and destroy the card.

19 Rescue Rabbit

Very broken card because it leads to easy Exceed summons. - PlaystationArchfiend

20 Wind-Up Rabbit

This card pisses me off so much whenever I'm on Dueling Network. If you don't have a card to negate it's summon, your opponent can practically create near-infinite loops with it. - PlaystationArchfiend

Makes me angry

21 Change of Heart

I activate change of heart on your dark magician, attack you with him and then tribute him gah I'll rip your face off!

Haha, I have change of heart! Say bye to silfer the sky dragon! I take control of it, and tribute it HA-HA-HA

22 Swords of Revealing Light

This card is such a annoyance especially if you have nothing to stop it.

Annoying when your opponent uses it

Help stall to get more monsters

Little bitch swords FUUU - ALL_HAIL_LELOUCH

23 Crush Card Virus

I know it's banned, but this card was legal a couple years back & whether it's banned or not, it's still a huge game-breaking trap card. - PlaystationArchfiend

Actually the reason it is limited now is because its effect was changed so now it's a risk to use it

Actually this is a great card. It isn't banned it is limited

24 The Dark Master Exodia


25 Scapegoat

Waste of four turns.

Hilarious so funny


Me: "Gee, it seems you activated my face down card." *4 cute little sheep pop onto the field* "Have fun."

(I sit on Scapegoat for four turns while my brother angrily attacks them.)

My brother: *Attacks last scapegoat* HAHA, you're dead next turn!

Me: OK. My turn. *set one* End.

My brother: MY TURN! *draws like an ape on meth* BATTLE PHASE! I ATTACK YOU DIRECTLY.

Me: Mirror Wall. GG.


26 Relinquished

This thing uses your monsters as a meat shield and a weapon, what

This bloody thing is WAY too easy to summon, even if it is a ritual monster. However, it's fused form is just borderline broken.

It's so funny, when ever I summon it all my friends just moan. Amazing card

It's a fun card to use when your losing I barley just won with it

27 Self-Destruct Button

Let's say you're about to win, the opponent activates this card and boom the duel's over and it's a tie that's literally what it does! How is this not on the list! That's my question if you restart the duel what is the opponent gonna do? Use it again!

This card is basically used as a trolling tool to piss you off.

Srly I love dis here card. I played a game with my bro online at the dual network with it, and we where playing for over an hour an he was winning so I used this on him and he raged so much it was comical. srly if you use a LP burn try this card.

28 Judgement Dragon

Not as bad as Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End, but still something to watch out for.

Lost against this guy way too many times."pay 1000 lp and destroy everything but this card." Then you take a direct 3000.

29 Yata Garasu

All I can say is this card will annoy the crap out of you. It's almost impossible to destroy and it attacks directly

Combine this with Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End in a combo and your opponent's guaranteed to rage out.

Win's games by itself. If that's not OP, I don't know what is

Its annoying

30 Pot of Greed

Is this jar of greed, draw one card? There's nothing wrong with that!

It's not just one card it's two and in otk decks it's op

31 Snatch Steal

Every time my oponent uses this card I quit the game

I am quiting too

32 Honest

This card wrecks gAmes

Won me loads of games!

Just visualize you've got F.G.D on the field and about to attack a neos and outta nowhere your opponent yells" I activate Honest's effect and neos gains 5000 atk points and destroys your fgd 😢😢

33 Wall of Revealing Light

This card is so annoying it restricts you from attacking with powerful monsters and gives your opponent enough time to destroy/summon a more powerful monster.

It restricts your attack and let's your opponent have enough time to destroy your monster/summon a more powerful monster.

I aggree this card is really annoying

34 Shapesnatch

This card is too op. One time my friends snatched my shape with this guy and now I play with triangular cards

Broken, please ban

So OP it can copy the effects of other monsters, I have ZTk'd (Zero Turn Killed) tens of opponents with this amazing beast of a card.

Idiot maricagay

35 Mirror Force

Your opponent just has to activate it the turn you get 5' cards on the field. It negates my attack, and leaves my field open for my opponent to rush me with.

Mirror Force should be on the list of forbidden cards, if you know what a forbidden card is. If you want a trap card that's not annoying, I would recommend Luminize. It stops an attack and you get to increase the attack points of one of your own monsters.

Among the not-forbidden cards, this is by far the cheapest and overpowered card. And now you can have 2 in the regular deck! What were they thinking? - MetalGurja

It's like you're just about to win and then puff there's that trap card

36 Call of the Haunted

Everyone uses it all the time it's annoying

37 Gravity Bind

As someone who relies on level 4+ monsters for most things, I can say that this card is absolute cancer, especially when your opponent can attack you directly and you can't do anything but wait until you draw something to destroy this card.

I had the card I used to activate it and then I couldn't attack:(

38 Ordeal of a Traveler

Yeah, I nearly destroyed you, oh wait, I have to guess what card type you have? Fine, monster. Wrong?!

Oh, your SCREWED now!

1 of these is bad, but having 2 or more on the field and having someone play scapegoat or scapeghost backed with these things... I'd rather kill myself then play that duel.

39 Evilswarm Exciton Knight

Destroy the field with 2 lv4 mons. Really annoying.

40 Revival Jam

It will always reform itself - trainerd6

So annying! So many combos that make you instoppable

You can't destroy it and it can beat an Egyptian god card. How can a little card beat one of the most powerful Yu-Gi-Oh cards? 😕

41 Level Limit - Area B

Oh yeah, I have that card, I don't use it because it states that ALL, (including yours)face up monsters level 4 or higher remain in defense position.

42 Magician of Black Chaos

It's easy to summon

43 Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

This card is the greatest mistake Konami has ever made since 5ds.

44 Stardust Dragon

This card just keeps on returning and there's no cost! Just tribute it while someone's attacking and then afterwards he's back again!

When the opponent only actives an effect that destroys cards

My friend has it I hate the card

It's unstoppable with Batteryman OTK Deck

45 Double or Nothing

noice card

46 Crimson Blader
47 Burden of the Mighty

Cripples all of your strong cards. The stronger the card the more attack it loses. It drives me insane every time my friend uses this card!

Honestly rank monsters aren't effected by this since it only affects level monsters

I have it and I love it but it's so annoying when somebody else plays it lol

I made a kiroboh able to beat a blue eyes white dragon with this and one ecuipe spell card it was aseome

V 1 Comment
48 Afterglow

Wow, 8000 damage? I would OTK'd the hell out of the opponent!

Even though I need to draw it of a 1% chance...

I even needed 3 of them to use it and give the supreme chances!

49 Cloud Castle

I use blue-eyes and if you get out blue-eyes spirit dragon and tribute for cloud castle, you just get spirit back and then overlay for True king of all calamities and its basically game from there

Good definitely easy to summon

Awesome definitely card

50 Treatoad

It's effect is annoying for people who have an out to it, and can just bring it back out again after you had a hard time destroying it, this needs to be at least at 1
