23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yu-Gi-Oh too! isn’t safe from joke cards, and by joke cards, we don’t just mean meme cards, but the funniest Yu-Gi-Oh cards that make you laugh out loud and are memes in themselves.

Many of them have odd titles or meaningless skills that are just useful for making people laugh.

Other cards appear to have run out of creative inspiration or to have been inspired by an anime character that nobody would want to be, leading to the character’s disappearance from history and the bizarre cards he produced in his place.

Whatever they are, the designs themselves are unquestionably outrageous.

So, included below are some of Yu-Gi-Oh’s joke cards.

23. Tardy Orc

01 tardy orc yugioh card 1 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

The Tardy Orc is the Yu-Gi-Oh card that breaks the fourth wall the most.

Before this card came out, there was a set called Order of Chaos, which was written as ORCS on the cards.

Fans noticed that there were no ORCS in a set called “ORCS.”

Konami heard about this anger and, in the next set, they made Tardy Orc, whose art showed him running late for the bus.

In an official blog post, they said that this was the reason why Tardy Orc wasn’t in Order of Chaos.

This card breaks the fourth wall about Yu-Gi-Oh being a card game more than any other card or product, which is why I think it’s the funniest in the game.

22. Yu-Jo Friendship

04 yu jo friendship yugioh card 1 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh anime don’t often show up on real cards:

In reality, there are only three of them, and they were all Shonen Jump promo cards.

This was also the first Yu-Gi-Oh card that required players to touch each other in real life.

You ask your opponent to shake your hand when you play Yu-Jo Friendship.

If they accept, the number of life points for both players is made the same.

It’s a weird card because if your opponent has more life points than you, all they have to do is refuse the kiss.

But that’s not in the spirit of the Yu-Gi-Oh show, and could you really say no to the Pharaoh in that way?

21. Ghost Beef

05 ghost beef card yugioh 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

You know how less can be more sometimes?

Every time I read the taste text on this card, it makes me laugh.

“The Ghost of the Christmas Dinner.”

It says everything in one short line, and it’s so casual that it’s funny. This card is one of a set of two. The other card in the set is a cooked turkey.

When these cards came out, Pendulum monsters were still fairly new, and Konami wasn’t sure where to take them.

I have to say that I’m sad that we don’t have a full deck of meat-based swaying monsters, but I can dream.

20. Weather Report

20 weather report yugioh card 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

This guy gets points for having weird art and a stupid result.

When it’s face up, you can destroy the Sword of Revealing Light your opponent has. If you do kill one, you get two fight phases the next time you get to attack.

This is one of the most specific Yu-Gi-Oh cards I’ve ever seen:

What are the chances that your opponent has Swords of Revealing Light on the board and that you have this guy set face down?

His art is just strange as well. It looks like someone in the Konami art department was in a hurry, drew a face on a rubber ball, and thought that was good enough.

10/10, Weather Report should never be changed.

19. Inmato

13 inmato yugioh card 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Tell me this puzzle:

What in the world could a tomato have done to deserve to go to jail?

Strangely, this isn’t the only card in the “Inmato” line. There have been other cards with bad vegetables on them, too.

Yes, tomatoes in jail is the basis for a whole mini-archetype. It only has two people in it, but that could change in the future.

It’s surprising that this character hasn’t been used more in recent years, and I can only hope that Yu-Gi-Oh will give us more vegetable criminals one day.

But for now, this card is very funny and not a bad addition to most plant decks.

18. Toadally Awesome

11 toadally awesome card yugioh 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

The Koami translation team makes some big mistakes from time to time. “Mekk Knight Avram” is a great example of this.

Sometimes they really hit the mark.

Toadally Awesome is either one or the other, depending on who you ask.

This guy’s original name was Treatoad because of the orange on his head.

I don’t know how they got from that to Toadally Awesome, but it’s one of my favorite cards in the game, so I can’t really complain.

The strangest thing about this card is that, even though it looks silly, it is a competitive beast.

It pretty much brought back all Frog decks, and Toadally Awesome is still played a lot.

17. Ojama Yellow

09 ojama yellow card yugioh 1 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

I chose Ojama Yellow because I think it’s the most ugly of the bunch.

But you could have chosen any of the Ojama cards because none of them are a sight for sore eyes.

The art on this card is horribly funny in every way.

The tiny spandex pants he’s wearing, the way he’s standing that makes him look like a bag of knees held together by willpower, and the huge, saliva-dripping red lips make this Yu-Gi-Oh card one of the weirdest I’ve ever seen.

As a real deck, Ojamas has some of the funniest moves ever.

It’s really a “go big or go home” approach. If you can get all 3 Ojamas out at the same time, you can do some really crazy things.

If not, all you’ll have is a field with a few people in pajamas, which won’t get you anywhere.

16. Transmission Gear

08 transmission gear yugioh card 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

I love Yu-Gi-Oh cards like this one, which change how the game is played in a weird way.

Transmission Gear completely changes how battles work:

If your monster fights an opponent’s monster, you and your opponent have to play Rock, Paper, Scissors.

If you lose, your monster is sent away with its back to the board. If your opponent loses, their monster is sent to the bottom of the deck face down.

With this trap card, it doesn’t really matter anymore how strong monsters are. And it just adds to the fun of the battle part.

In Rock-Paper-Scissors, you don’t need a strong attack to beat someone. So, everyone can do whatever they want.

15. Symbol of Friendship

Symbol of Friendship yugioh 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Everyone is familiar with how Yugioh! Friendship frequently appears in anime.

This is often linked to the fact that “Heart of the Cards” moments can lead to some of the most cheesy victories when the right card is drawn to win a fight.

This is the same idea behind the card “Symbol of Friendship.”

To be activated, it must be drawn in the Draw Phrase while the opponent is in control of three or more monsters.

Additionally, you are not allowed to control any Monsters, and they must be used on the turn you draw it.

You can then choose any card from your deck and put it in your hand to create your anime moment.

14. Doom Donuts

DoomDonuts.png 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

If I had a nickel for each item of food on this list that appeared to have the potential to kill me, I’d have two. which isn’t much, but the fact that it’s happened twice is strange.

I just can’t get over how terrifying this guy is while still being kind of adorable. Those razor-sharp fangs, the determined tiny eyes…

I’m just curious as to how Konami concluded that a donut should be the next terrifying monster in the series.

13. The Master of Oz

19 master of oz ygo card 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

I adore Master of Oz, which is Yu-Gi-attempt Oh’s to capture Australia on a single card.

The two most characteristically Australian animals you can imagine, the koala and the kangaroo, are fused to summon it.

A gigantic Koala sporting boxing gloves, a spooky mustache, and an alarming quantity of underarm hair. It all makes sense!

That recognizable sandstone plateau in the distance may also be familiar to you. That alludes to Uluru, one of Australia’s most well-known natural landmarks!

A much more flattering representation of Australians than the koala in front of it, this is a nice nod to the nation.

12. Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon

18 interplanetarypurplythorny dragon card 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

90% of the time, I think the people who named this card were unable to settle on a single name and were forced to combine all of the suggested names.

The absurd name of this card leads to some entertaining exchanges.

In several exchanges in Yu-Gi-Oh, you must specifically pronounce the name of a card to target it, and this guy just makes that so much funnier.

You’re hilarious and I highly encourage it to try to visualize your opponent saying “Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon” without fumbling.

Even better, this card’s name is regular in the Official Card Game edition! Thorny, Purple Dragon from Another World was the original name of this person.

That is a lot less wordy than Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon and sort of cool.

11. Pot of Generosity

17 pot of generosity card yugioh 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

The Yu-Gi-Oh card Pot of Generosity pokes fun at all the other pot cards, including Pot of Greed and Pot of Duality.

Except for this one, all of these Pot cards focus on drawing additional cards.

Using the Pot of Generosity, you can deal cards from your hand back into your deck.

I can’t think of even one application for this card.

Maybe you could flex a little on your opponent if need be. If you can accomplish this in a duel and still prevail, then you are rightfully referred to as the “lord of games.”

10. Slushy

16 slushy yugioh card 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

This card straddles the line between odd and cute in a way.

It appears just how you would imagine it to: like a Slushy drink you may have purchased as a child at an arcade, only it has now come to life and is spitting itself all over the place.

It has a passable effect for Water decks, but I find it fascinating that there is a Yu-Gi-Oh card that is nothing more than a drink.

Even better is the fact that Konami has not overlooked this card either. One of the most recent Speed Duel sets included a reprint of it!

This is the type of reprint I want to see more of in Yu-Gi-Oh! instead of the Mega Tin ones.

9. Parasite Paracide

15 parasite paracide ygo card 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

One of the worst cards ever to be prohibited from tournament play is Parasite Paracide.

Additionally, all Yu-Gi-Oh tournaments took place as Remote Duels using video conferencing software during the lockdowns, making it physically impossible to play Parasite Paracide!

This is because you must place it face-up in your opponent’s deck for its effect to work.

The only way I can see this working is if you mail this card to your opponent, pause the duel until they get it, and then resume it once they do. Now that we’re playing in a competition, I can see how this can slightly slow down the action.

This card is similarly strange when used face-to-face.

I’m talking about adding a card, face up, to your adversaries’ deck.

This is the closest thing to that that I can think of in Yu-Gi-Oh. This card reflects Konami’s earlier, more experimental stage of Yu-Gi-Oh development.

8. The Humble Sentry

02 cold feet ygo card 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

An excellent Yu-Gi-Oh! The parody card is The Humble Sentry. The Forceful Sentry is one of the most successful playing cards ever produced.

The Forceful Sentry has been prohibited for many years because hand looping (the act of pulling a card out of a player’s hand and getting rid of it) is quite effective.

The Forceful Sentry has the same result as The Humble Sentry, but it has an impact on you.

You lose two cards in the process, the card itself and the card that gets shuffled back into the deck, in addition to disclosing your whole hand to the opponent and giving them free information.

7. Foolish revival

Foolish revival 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Foolish Reveal is one of the best Yu-Gi-Oh! cards ever released. However, the parody card for it is one of the worst ever produced for the game.

You are compelled by Foolish Revival to special summon a monster to their side of the field in defense position from their graveyard.

Their board now has a free body that they can use for any type of Extra Deck material.

Foolish Revival is a trap card, which makes it not only awful but also exceedingly slow to use as if things couldn’t get much worse.

6. Cold Feet

02 cold feet ygo card 1 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

The coward card, known as “cold feet,” is used to demonstrate your cowardice as a duelist.

It’s absurd because it only hurts you and you have to play it, “Hey, I’m going to play this card that makes it so I can’t do anything to have a leg up in the game.”

The majority of cards are made to be activated, hence they are useless for strategic purposes.

Even the card’s illustration is appropriate because it depicts the person who is using it freezing to death. The only practical application is to block a trap card from being countered.

5. Humpty Grumpty

HumptyGrumpty.png Yu Gi Oh Cards 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

If you made one into an egg, it would resemble a Titan from the anime Attack on Titan.

With its tiny wings, which could never give this egg flight, and the little horns, which would be terrible for any form of offense, it appears to be somewhat devil as well.

It also has T-Rex problems because its hands are unable to extend past its torso.

This must be Humpty Dumpty’s crazy relative who no one ever invites to parties as he is typically depicted as an egg.

Who added Humpty Grumpty’s nose ring is the best question regarding this design.

4. D-Boyz

DBoyz.png 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Clearly, this is a pretty poor attempt to be popular in the 1990s and 2000s.

It’s comparable to creating a Hipster card with just a blue person wearing Nike apparel, a fedora, and a large beard as the image.

The worst feature of this card is summoning additional D-Boyz cards from it with its special ability, which deals 1000 damage each time. It isn’t even useful as fodder with 100 attacks.

3. People Running About

PeopleRunningAbout.png 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

This is one of those cards that says, “Running out of ideas.” The name of the card barely qualifies it as a monster card; a trap or spell card would have made more sense.

The phrase “They run around in quiet” on this card is among its strongest features.

In other words, they are moving around softly. Picture what would happen if you and your pals suddenly started moving silently in a circle.

The concept is absurd, especially when it pertains to a monster card where the objective is to attack.

Therefore, the monster is essentially a collection of people moving around in silence and running into another monster by accident.

2. Hungry Burger

HungryBurger.png 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

The hungry burger. It’s a dull Saturday morning anime villain with no original ideas. It results from the “Oh, but what if food consumes YOU” mentality.

It’s difficult to tell how big it is; it might be the size of a murder burger.

Just picture a tiny, palm-sized hamburger that is trying to bite everybody who comes close to it, like some type of venus fly trap.

That fool is dead after a 2000 attack point on that little murder burger.

1. Overworked

Overworked.png 23 Most Funniest Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Wow, the origin of this idea is a riddle. It nearly seems like a request for assistance from the Yu-Gi-Oh! card creators.

Even a computer screen exploding up at a worker at an office at late-night, blasting his glasses off, is visible.

Nope, that’s it, it must simply be a card. It’s a really good card against cards that strengthen themselves, anyway.

Furthermore, you get to humiliate them in front of them by laughing at how they overuse their cards.
