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.
15. Symbol of Friendship
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
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
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
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.
That is a lot less wordy than Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon and sort of cool.
11. Pot of Generosity
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.”
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
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
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 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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
