Top 10 Strongest Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards

The Top Ten
1 The Winged Dragon of Ra

I found some time ago that the Winged Dragon of Ra's Sphere and Phoenix abilities are a powerful combination. What I discovered is that Ra, in the normal TCG, is okay, but when you add one Sphere and one Immortal Phoenix, the game changes completely. Not only do these three forms complement each other, but when combined, they are devastatingly powerful.

The strategy is to get the Immortal Phoenix into the graveyard, summon the Sphere Mode, and finally summon Ra. If Ra should be destroyed, Ra's Phoenix can decimate the entire field, if you choose. Alternatively, you can send the Phoenix to the graveyard, summon the Sphere Mode again, and repeat the process. When the Sphere Mode is used, Ra gains 4000 ATK and DEF points.

2 Exodia the Forbidden One

Exodia has entire decks designed around finding his pieces, bringing them to your hand or graveyard, and using Exodius or Exodia Necross to defeat the opponent. Sometimes, you can simply win by getting all the pieces in one place - your hand or graveyard if you have Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord in play. He is the single most powerful Duel Monster created, even having decks and support cards just for him.

Exodia is the strongest Yu-Gi-Oh! 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 cards! That's how powerful he is. When he is full again, he is so strong he guarantees you a win.

3 Slifer the Sky Dragon

The anime version of Slifer the Sky Dragon is so powerful that Yugi almost lost to this god card. The second mouth of Slifer targets all monsters that are summoned onto the field as long as they have 2000 or less ATK and DEF. This ability makes Slifer very powerful, as it can prevent the summoning of good monsters and can leave the opponent in the dust if not stopped immediately. I have used this card myself because of its ability to take control of the battlefield.

One more thing to note from the anime is that Marik destroyed Slifer's intended strategy, ultimately making Slifer untouchable. However, this left his deck wide open. If Yugi hadn't noticed this flaw, he would have lost along with his Dark Magician. But, if Marik hadn't tried to alter Slifer's strategy, he probably would have won.

This is why Slifer is my personal favorite of the Three God Cards, and no matter what you say, you can't change my mind about it. In my opinion, Slifer is number one.

4 Obelisk the Tormentor

I actually think he may be the strongest card, even though Ra is ranked higher in godly rankings. As Laibach said, a god's power is an illusion, so cards like Ra and Slifer, which rely on your opponents or a special circumstance in the game, can be useless. Obelisk, on the other hand, has 4000 attack and defense and a killer effect, so either way, he can defeat monsters on his own.

No wonder Kaiba liked it so much after critics clung to Slifer and Ra so much!

Mate, you can't beat INFINITE ATTACK. Obelisk is the only card in existence to get infinite attack and still be unaffected by card effects. He'll crush Ra's skull, tie Slifer in a knot, and send Exodia's "obliterate" right back at him. Literally, no one can beat the original Obelisk card.

5 Last Turn

Combine this card with any monster that prevents special summoning, and you instantly win.

6 Holactie the Creator of Light

She's actually the strongest since she effortlessly destroyed Zorc Necrophades in just one hit. By doing so, she's definitely much stronger than the rest, for example, The Great Leviathan. She's considered the ultimate card for being the only one where enemies are automatically considered defeated when this card is successfully summoned.

Also, the three Egyptian gods, when combined, will summon Holactie, and I think she's also unbeatable when battled with Exodia.

Best card ever! Almost the same as Exodia.

Here is her 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, right?

7 Apoqliphort Towers

This thing was banned for a reason. It's immune to almost every effect, its stats are pretty good, and it lowers the ATK of all special-summoned monsters by 500. If you know you're going against this thing, you better bring your anti-summon cards.

Good card. The term towers comes from this card.

8 Five-Headed Dragon

Rocks cannot be destroyed in battle by other cards. Only specific cards can attack it. This, I feel, is really strong, but its rarity is not that high since I have two. As I said, it's very strong and cannot be normally summoned. Usually, I'm up to ten life points. Ha ha.

But, in my opinion, it's better than any other god card. The god cards just make you lose your life points for taking out one monster, whereas this guy can do it all.

Thanks for reading. I hope I did not hurt anyone's feelings. Good luck.

9 Super Quantal Mech King Great Magnus
10 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon

This is the best dragon in my deck, not the most powerful in attack, but it can special summon one dragon-type monster without tributes. Flood the field with dragons while your opponent's face slowly drops. And with Castle of Dragon Souls and Black Metal Dragon, I can make his attack 4100!

This is the 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.

Awesome card. You can summon him by just tributing one dragon on the field.

His ability lets him special summon one dragon in your graveyard or hand.

The Contenders
11 Red Nova Dragon

He is by far the strongest dragon, second only to the Five-Headed Dragon.

I have never lost a duel when I got it on the field, and my deck is built around summoning it, so it's super easy to summon.

Its attack is very high, and its effect is pretty awesome.

But compared to the Divine Gods, it's not powerful enough.

My strongest card, Legendary Fiend, has an attack of 1700 and defense of 2000. It also has an effect where every turn that's mine, it gains 700 attack.

Anyway, it has no chance standing against any of these cards.

12 Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon

The strongest dragon with original attack stats that can be summoned again after being destroyed.

Plus, mega morph him, then he's at 9000 attack, and have Lord of D so he can't be targeted by card effects.

YES, this is the most powerful. I have two Blue-Eyes White Dragons, and that only just beat it!

But the dragons I used had magic cards for attack, so I think it's the BEST CARD EVER.

My friends call me Kaiba because of how many times I've played this card. It's my new signature card. Awesome!

13 Wightprincess
14 Relinquished

Relinquished can take your opponent's 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.

This card can take any monster card's attack and use it against your opponent!

Besides, this card is easy to summon because it's a level one. You know what's better? A Gravity Bind on the field. After you do those... GG!

So cool, he can take control of your enemy's monsters and use them.

If he is attacked by a stronger monster, he can use the monster he took control of as a sacrifice, and your opponent takes all the damage.

15 Harpie's Feather Duster
16 Kuriboh

Yeah, he is so powerful he can jump and point his ferocious claws at the opponent.

17 Heavy Storm

They should unban this card! It's great to use against people who are too dependent on the back row, including pendulum zones.

Banned, but removes all spell and trap cards on the field.

18 Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End

Of course, pre-errata: Setting up your graveyard, then special summoning this, sends your opponent's hand to the graveyard and gets a bunch of resources back.

An instant win that is even searchable as a dark dragon monster.

Having checked the ban lists of every update for the past 10 years, I can confirm that this card has been flat out banned for AT LEAST a decade. That means something.

Chaos Emperor is the strongest card by far, stronger than even Slifer and Obelisk. He is the Envoy of the End for a legitimate reason.

19 Toadally Awesome
20 Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon

This ultimate beast is mighty. It can negate any card's effect and has more attack. It can absorb all the overlay units and gain 500 attack for each one. Also, it can keep attacking. With an attack of 4500 and an inescapable effect, this monster is clearly one of the top strongest monsters.

- It's not really hard to bring out when you have strong decks.
- It is the ultimate form of Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon.
- The 2nd strongest Galaxy-Eyes, along with Neo Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon, after Galaxy-Eyes Neutron Dragon.

21 Raviel, Lord of Phantasms
22 Lava Golem
23 Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder

Hamon has a super effect. When you destroy an enemy monster, it makes your enemy pay 1000 life points as tribute.

So, if you attack a lower-level monster in attack position, he loses half or more of his total life points. Laugh out loud.

Hard to summon, but super awesome!

24 Magic Cylinder

Basically, if you can end the game with an attack while it's face down, well, you're screwed.

This card is the best trap card ever, no doubt about it.
