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 has both sphere and Phoenix abilities are a powerful combo. What I found was that Ra along in the normal TCG is lean OK but throw in one sphere and one immortal Phoenix and the game changes all together. Not only do these three forms antagonize with one and other but all three combined are so devastating it stupid. The way to go in that area is to get the Immortal Phoenix into the grave, summon the Sphere Mode, and Finally Summon Ra. If Ra should be destroyed Ra's Phoenix will come out a decimate the entire field if you choose but if you choose you can send the phoenix to the grave and get out the sphere mode again and repeat. If the Sphere mode is used Ra gets 4000 ATK & DEF points.

Great in the anime, but not practical at all in real life. He has the potential for very high ATK, but it's very volatile, and you'll be left near dead afterwards. Seeing as how Ra has no form of self-protection against card effects, this leaves you extremely vulnerable. Your other option is to leave him at a pitiful 0 ATK and DEF in exchange for a 1000 LP monster removal. Not terrible...if he didn't require 3 tributes to summon. You can't even special summon him, unlike the other two. Sphere and Phoenix forms might make things interesting, but by himself, Ra is the worst of the God cards and pretty mediocre in general.

DISCLAIMER: Alright I get how Ra is an Egyptian God card and all but in reality It's not that strong at all. It may look strong and have a cool design but it's effect is no better than Slifer or Obelisk and is probably worse than them considering you have to pay life points. Imagine trying to defeat a Cyber dragon You would have to pay many life points. Compared to slider who gets attack from your hand and Obelisk who can wipe the field of all monsters, Ra's effect just seems so Obselete. And compared to other cards Ra is even worse What about Chaos Empereror Dragon? , Shooting Quasaer Dragon? , Cyber End Dragon, Shooting Star Dragon? , Raviel Lord Of Phantasms or even a regular Utopia/Utopia Byond/ Utopic Dragon?! I don't mean to be rude and am sorry if I have offended anyone but Although Ra is cool he is not that strong and can't be ranked in the top ten or even 20. Effect: D Attack: D Design: A Rarity: B- As you can see not that great...

If you pay 1000 life points to activate Ra third and most powerful ability. Ra becomes phoenix his atk and def becomes zero until end of that turn but :

1. He is completely unaffected by magic, trap and monsters effects and he can't be destroyed by battle

2. He destroys all monsters on the field. This effect works on any divine monster.

So he can't be destroyed and he can destroy every monster on the field with this effect.

2 Slifer the Sky Dragon

I'm not saying slifer is the strongest, of course he isn't, Exodia, it's just hard to put him together, but the reason I voted Slifer is because of two reasons.
1) A dear friend gave me this card
2) If you've got the right setup, your practically unbeatable, make it so you can have as many cards in your hand as you like, use loads of pots of greed, graceful charities, etc. and then get lots of monsters, and your done.
1 God card
4 of anything
5 Of the same card to give you as many cards in your hand
15 things like Graceful Charity, Pot Of Greed, etc.
15 low-mid level monsters

Now easy to summon, great to use. I use Pegasuses deck, but I've added Slifer and a few more cards to it, now I have 3 ways to win, with Relinquished, Slifer or Toon World.

The Anime version is so powerful that Yugi almost lost to this god card because of Slifer's second mouth. The second mouth nails all monsters that were summoned onto the field as long as they were 2000 or less ATK and DEF. Ultimately Slifer is very powerful because of the second mouth making it impossible to summon the good monsters and can leave you 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 is in the anime if you've seen it is that Marik Destroyed Slifer's intended Stratagy and Ultimately Made Slifer Untouchable but as a consequence left his deck wide open with his Strategy. If Yugi didn't notice this flaw he would have lost and lost his Dark Magician. But if Marik didn't try and alter Slifer's Strategy he probably would have won. This is why it's my personal favorite of the Three God Cards and no mater what you say you can't change my mind about it. Slifer is #1 in my opinion.

It gains 1000 atk and definitely points for every card in your hand. If you have the magic card "Infinite Cards" then you could get some pretty high attack points. And not to forget, if there is a monster on the opponents side of the field it loses 2000 atk points. So say you had slifer and 5 cards in your hand, and your opponent has blue eyes white dragon. Slifer= 5000 atk, blue eyes now has 1000 atk...that's a huge 4000 life points difference. You'd only need 2 turns with slifer then you can win the duel.

This is zack and I belive that slifer needs to be number 1. This awesome card can literally DECIMATE any opponent under 2000 atk and seriously cripple others. It is also unaffected by spells, traps, OR card effects. This card is a true monster, and doesn't require lp to power it, unlike the Winged Dragon if Ra or Obelisk the Tormentor. This truly deserves to be #1

3 The Dark Master - Exodia

Exodia has entire decks designed around finding his pieces, bringing them to your hand or graveyard, and using Exodius or Exodia Necross to destroy 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 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

I have exodia the dark master and have herd lots of opinions of its existance. I learned that it do sent have all the other things on it like other cards because the first few cards created for yugioh when it started were to look like cards in the show which don't have the extra stuff on them. Also exodia the dark master comes in one piece.

He may be considered unstoppable but still. It is so hard to get all the parts to him. And you can only have up to five cards in your hand. But he is still over powered when compared to the rest and is not as hard to summon as Harakhty.

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 gods power is an illusion so cards like ra and silver which rely on your opponents or a special circumstance in the game they can be useless. Obelisk on the the other hand has 4000 attack and defense and a killer effect so either way he can kill monsters on its own. No wonder kaiba liked it so much after critics cling silver and ra so much!

Obelisk for me is number seven because it can easily be encountered by Ra Silfer Exodia and even Dark Magician

My top ten strongest yu gi oh in my opinion are
1.Blue Eyes Alternative Ultimate Dragon
2.Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon
3.Blue Eyes White Dragon
4.Dark Magician
5.Dark Magician Girl
8.The Winged Dragon Of Ra
9.Silfer Sky Dragon
10.Red Eyes Black Dragon

M8 you can't beat INFINITE ATTACK. Obelisk is the only card in existance 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" tight back at him. Literally no-one can beat the original obelisk card.

Nothing can beat him except a monster with higher ATK points, as seen on the card you cannot destroy it with spells, traps, or monster effects like man-eater bug. Also when it is on the field, the effect still works, I dueled someone that didn't know that on and he quit because it was so powerful and he was afraid to lose.

5 Five Headed Dragon

Rocks cannot be destroyed in battle by other cards only specific cards it can be attacked by. This actually I feel is really strong but its rarity is not that well since I have two... as I said very strong cannot be normal summoned usually I'm up to ten life points haha ha. But it's better in my opinion than any other god card, because the god cards just make you loose your life points for well taking out one monster when this guy can do all of it.

Thanks for reading it, I hope I did not hurt any ones feelings. :) good luck

I have a cheat to get him on the battle field faster first get five low level monster cards (any type) then in the same turn use D. Tribe to turn all of your monster cards into dragons then use polymerization on all of them together and the you get five headed dragon!

It can easily be summoned with cards such as Dragon's Mirror and if you're playing with the traditional format, Future Fusion. Basically, an instant 5000 ATK monster, which is the highest possible attack for any monster that has a definite ATK power. That means Ra and Slifer don't count toward this. (Since both have special means of obtaining ATK. )

If replaced in a deck based around dragons, it is very easy to summon especially with something like nightmare steel cage to protect your monsters from being destroyed for three turns. It also has the highest attack in yugioh beating Obelisk by 1000 ATK and definitely

6 The Creator God of Light, Horakhty

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.

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!

Watched the series? The Creator is the most powerful by far. How can the God cards be higher than this when The Creator IS the God cards FUSED TOGETHER. Zork killed Exodia, Ra, Obelisk, Slifer, and Blue Eyes Ultimate easily. The Creator killed Zork like it was nothing. So, erm... Um... Think the Creator might be the strongest ever so slightly people. So yeah.. Another wrong list.

He is the best (it's a male since it's a god not goddess) I know exodia wasn't at full power against sore but that means his power can be taken away whereabout horakhty nothing can beat him.

7 Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon

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

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 placed this down, it's my new signature card AWESOME!

My friend has two blue eyes ultimate dragons, and is the best card in the WORLD!

8 Exodia

Best card stronger than horakhty because you need thirteen cards to summon him and with exodia you just need five. If horakhty is in your hand you don't win, whereabouts if exodia is in your hand he wins, his mere presence allows the dueller and automatic victory

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.

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.

If you get all pieces of Exodia you automatically win the duel. If you think a card is better then one that automatically win go right ahead but Exodia is the best card.

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

It is cool. If can keep attacking and you will get murdered. It is a beAst it will kick donkey

Dang it1 I had him, then I traded him because I didn't know.

10 Red Nova Dragon

I special summoned him via mystical beast of serket. On 1st turn too, I had gilasaurus, so I special summoned him, tribute summoned for mystical beast of serket (already had temple of the kings in play), and tributed both to summon. A total boss in battle, and using a spell and megamorph I did 7000 direct damage!

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

My strongest card Legendary Fiend with a attack of 1700 and defense of 2000 but, also has an effect which every turn that's mine he ganes 700 attack. Anyways he has no chance standing any of these cards

It's attack is very high and it's effect is pretty awesome but compared to the divine gods it's not powerful enough.

The Contenders
11 Blue 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.

If The Winged Dragon of Ra would have opposite side of his character-that would be definitely this one..Shinig NOVA - it can put a rage of a 1000 blue-eyes into a blast so strong that it can destroy even himself..absolutely amazing looking..I would say this dragon is RA in blue version

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

This card is far too powerful I beat 2 god cards with this obelisk the tormenter and the winged dragon of ra I have never faced slifer the sky dragon before but this is far to op.

my deck with him in beat exodia this card is just over powered it's so op

Hard to summon but super awesome!

Yo this guy is awesome!

13 Raviel, Lord of Phantasms
14 Yubel

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

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

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

This thing can't be killed. I've dualed against it multiple times. I was barely able to win those duals.

15 Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon

Best dragon in my deck not the most
powerful attack but special summon 1 dragon type no tributes, flood the field with dragons while your opponents face slowly drops and with castle of dragon souls and black metal dragon I can make his attack 4100!

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.

Great Card. I always win with this card.

Same man its epic

16 Uria Lord of Searing Flames
17 Stardust 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.

2500ATK may not be as strong as it used to be but I got to the semifinals two years in a row thanks to this card so my vote goes here.

I have 5 different synchro dragon cards and this is far by my favorite and it's so powerful!

This card is awesome.As long as you have this bad guy on the field and know how to use it,you will be unbeatable.Oh yea and if you have majestic dragon and stardust you can special summon majestic star dragon.

18 Dark Magician

All those boss monsters at the top...So easy to kill in reality. Now this card...If your opponent has Soul stele out on the field then your pretty much screwed until you kill it. Not only will it bring Dark magician back from the grave but it will also allow your opponent to retrieve Thousand knives and Dark magic attack, the latter is one of the reasons you would use the deck.

A few battles, I would have lost without this and my friends magical hats!

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!

19 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

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

I have it he is amazing

20 Armityle the Chaos Phantom

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.

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

I have this card and it all ways wins me the duel but it is hard to get out but over all he rocks

Is the best card!

21 Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End

Of course pre-errata: Setting up your graveyard, then special summon this, send your oppoents hand to the graveyard and get an 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

This card is so overpowered that it is banned.

It's banned and or limited.

22 Dragon Master Knight

1) Attacked Zorc the Dark One with an attack so strong that it destroyed itself in the process.
2) Is the combined efforts of Kaiba and Yugi, incontestably the strongest duelers.
3) Defeated the Five - Headed Dragon
4) Requires the tribute of Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon
5) It's attack can increase even further just by summoning any more dragons.

I traded my blue eyes toon dragon and to on world and it is the best card ever in the world me and my friends are having a turnament on Jan 10 and I think I have them beat. That's why it's in my deck. (To bad it's not in mint condition ) it also has 5000atk and 5000def

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

23 Kuriboh

Kuriboh is the best ever

He is the strongest

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

I don't thank he is the 24th strongest card unless you have the right spell cards

24 Harpie's Feather Duster
25 Heavy Storm

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.

Ya this is super powerful!
