Strongest Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards

The Top Ten

1 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

The people that made this are casuals, anime effects do not translate to the real card, sparks can kill you once you summon this card that should be enough evidence to why this card is bad.

Ra can put his attack as the attack of all the monster it has sacrifised. It can make an amaxing attack

2 Slifer the Sky Dragon

I have all the yu gi oh top ten and I am nearly unbeatable but have been beaten and slifer the sky dragon is my favourite and best card I have

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?

This is the best

Ultimate beast it got game

3 The 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

How can this be debated? When all the cards of exodia are combined, nothing can stop it. Easily the #1 best.

He is the ULTIMATE weapon to win the game!

4 Obelisk The Tormentor

With 2 sacrifices he gets infinite attack points

It schould be 1st

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

V 67 Comments
5 Five Headed Dragon

This card is stronger than obelisk the tormentor

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!

Easy to summon really powerful and cool looking

Just a little hard to summon but SUPER OVER POWERED

6 The Creator God of Light, Horakhty

It seems strong...

This is the best card in the game

It's a god at this game!

It's To OP!

7 Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon

I have one of these as well as 3 blue-eyes white dragons and I have never been beaten with it on the field! this card is even stronger than obelisk the tormentor! THIS CARD IS ALMOST UNBEATABLE!

Dragon Master Knight is Stronger

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

V 33 Comments
8 Exodia

It the best card

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.

It is so powerful

Exodia is good but it needs all of the pieces to activate it but its still a beast card

9 Neo Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon

#best card ever

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.

It's a cool card

This is from number hunter

10 Red Nova Dragon

He is a spec in popularity, and the ultimate raigeki in power.

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

He is by far the strongest dragon second only to 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 its super easy to summon

V 26 Comments

The Contenders

11 Blue Eyes Shining Dragon

Super awesome. but almost impossible to summon

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.

I have a friend he used blue eyes shining dragon and I have only won once he also had ghost ogre with snow rabbit to make it even more difficult and is almost impossible to destroy.

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

12 Hamon, 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

I have this card and with this card I have win all my duels

Yo this guy is awesome!

I win all my matches with this card

V 1 Comment
13 Raviel, 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!

It's awesome it helped me beat my friend

I have this card and in my opinion it isas good if not netter then obolsk

14 Yubel

My friend uses Yubel, and he's getting Terror Incarnate and the Ultimate Nightmare forms of her in a few days, so yeah. Yubel is broken - Mattblue66

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 card is awesome, although hard to summon, it destroys monsters immediately and can't be destroyed by battle, it's unbeatable!

15 Red 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 use him to stack my field early in the game and not give my opponent a chance

Great Card. I always win with this card.

Same man its epic

16 Uria 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!

Best card in the world this card kicks butt. It wins every dual

Destroys my friends cards

The First Sacred Beast, Awesome powers!

17 Stardust Dragon

This should be the 1st. you guys are bad

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 is a bull card! It is a card that should be banned in tournaments

18 Dark Magician

If you have supportive spell/traps your unstoppable.Dark Magician Circle and Eternal soul (have support against spell/traps that destroy your ones or all your monsters are gone) work well as practically once per turn you can banish a card on your opponents side of the field and if they only have one monster on the field, you can keep attacking dierectly

If you have the right combinations, this card is unstoppable!

Almost unstoppable if the deck is built correctly

Dark magican is simpily the best magican

19 Armityle 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

This card is epic! It has more attack point's than any other cards in yugioh! Best card ever

How is this not the best it can't be destroyed by any monster

V 13 Comments
20 Relinquished

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!

He can defeat and defile the sacred beasts like they were nothing

21 Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End

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

This card is so overpowered that it is banned.

This card is op

It's half the yata-garasu lock, not letting your opponent do anything

22 Dragon 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!

How can blue eyes ultimate dragon be stronger that this card when you have to tribute that card to make this card.

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

Screw all the cards in the game, this is the best lol

Kuriboh is the best ever

24 Harpie's Feather Duster

its BAN

I have this on its fun to use

25 Heavy Storm

Ya this is super powerful!

They should un-ban 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 7 trap cards on the field.

26 Red Eyes Darkness Dragon

its ass

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.

27 Majestic 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

I have a majestic red dragon

It's the #6 strongest card ever

28 Shooting Quasar Dragon

Best card ever

IT SHOULD 1ST.It is one of the best card we have ever seen! And it can attack max. 4 times!

By far this is one of the strongest card existed it has a hgh attack and defense Attack:4000 Defense:4000
and its effect is really insane Effect:Its Maximum Number of attack is the number of non-tuner cards used to summon this up to 5 I guess (Min is 2 4000x2=8000 I guess max 5 4000x5=20000) and once per turn when any card or effect is activated negate the effect and destroy the card lastly if this leaves the field you can summon 1 shooting star dragon so by far this could beat almost any card I defeated all my classmates with this card some of them have really strong including neo galaxy eyes photon dragon so if you got ths card destroy all your yu gi oh friends! this should be number 1 card or at least top 10 its only weakness is cards that destoy this x2 including raidaraptor stranger falcon x2 its effect is to destroy a monster and inflict the cards damage to the opponent you need 2 of raidaraptor because shooting quasar have to destroy the first one to survive but you have to ...more

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

29 Lava Golem

I don't know wt card is this

WHAT the heck is this doing all the way down here?!?!.for 1 this card has 3000 atk points that's the same as b.e.w.d(blue eyes). Its one of the ultimate cards only downside is that it damages you every turn you weild it.

30 Red 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.

31 Blue Eyes White Dragon

It is the best card in my opinion

He's the best he should be number 5

Top 10

He should be in the top 10 not #54th

32 The Creator


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

33 Monster Reborn

This spell card is probably the greatest, no wonder it's banned from tournaments. Monster Reincarnation needs to have a better card effect to replace Monster Reborn.

Sometimes when I play my monsters that I have get destroyed and when I draw this I never lose.

Monster Reborn kicks ass

I have this card and its butiful

V 3 Comments
34 Judgment 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.

I have this guy!

I have itt its awesome

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.

35 Magic Cylinder

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

I can destroy my opponents live points with this card

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

36 Divine 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.

37 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning

I love it demolished opponents life points

Black luster soldier is one of the most rare and my favorite monster it has the same amount of strength as the Blue-Eyes White Dragon!

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

38 Dark Armed Dragon

This is generally the best dark-typed dragon-typed ever created

Super powerful

Have it love it

39 Man-Eater Bug

Best yugioh card, because it doesn't required tributes and has a flip effect that can destroy blue eyes ultimate.

It may be weak in Atk points and definitely points but it's special ability is amazing and also it's more known then the other monsters that have the same effect.

40 Crush Card Virus

This card has to be better than #40! ps I have it and it is just epic

How is this #41

Not a monster but it cripples some of the best decks.

It's so op it's band from the iPad game of Yu-gi-oh

41 Beast King Barbaros

Best card! Kinda hard to get the monsters to tribute for him thou...

42 Lord 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!

43 The 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

This monster is always the strongest on the field no matter what, and on top of that, your opponent can't even activate Spells or Traps until 4 turns after you've summoned it!

Why does this card be at the bottom it is by far the best

This is one of the best cards saying that I have it

44 Millennium Shield

Just kidding'

45 Emperor 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

46 Red 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

47 Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon

Mates this card is a beast and anyone who denies its power really need to experience such overwhelming strength. This card is the raw essence of power. Every deck requires this plus add Lightray Daedalus and you have a extreme battle ground set up for even the most worthy of duelists.

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

Galaxy eyes if really powerful and belongs to kite he is awesome and can even become neo galaxy eyes but I like this one more!

V 5 Comments
48 Mirror Force

It is super strong

The best trap card in the game;says me

op trap

49 Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon

It is op because it can be used in every dragon deck and I use it to make my Slifer invincible. In a sense, it is even better than Slifer

I love it what if I fused it together with my blue eyes white dragon.

50 Grapha, 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
