As Peter Raeves points out in the comments, a useful listing is available at Wikipedia's List of Yu-Gi-Oh! episodes article. In brief: Watch Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters (the first series, not the "zeroth" series), which is 224 episodes / 5 seasons in length. At any point after episode 144, you can, if you'd like, watch the Pyramid of Light movie. If you'd like,...

In the initial stages of the manga, Yu-Gi-Oh was more or less supposed to be a horror manga. Although the end result was a manga about games, it was clear that some horror elements influenced certain aspects of the story. It was later decided that "battle" be the primary theme. Since there were a lot of "Fighting/Combat" based manga, it was in a way ...

An alternate answer to Senshin's answer is however the Fortune Ladies used by Carly Carmine while she was a Dark Signer in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's series. and unlike her Fortune Fairies she used before becoming a Dark Signer the Fortune Ladies are also official cards while the starting level of the Fortune Ladies is initially low, the highest being 6, their ...

The manga starts with Yugi and the soul inhabiting the enigma being involved in many different disputes on many different kinds of games: from card games, tabletop games, electronic games, video games, lots of gambling and small crimes too. Then, the card game created for the manga starts being the center piece of the story, with clear rules being developed ...

Remember that Kaiba vs. Yugi duel way back in Duelist Kingdom (episodes 22-24) where Yugi polymerized his Mammoth Graveyard with Kaiba's Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon? (lol) Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon is a level-12 monster. I don't believe there are any monsters of level 13 or higher. So, there's that. (There are probably other level-12 monsters in the anime, ...

I don't really follow Yu-Gi-Oh anymore, but I think this can be explained on purely linguistic grounds. Leaving Obelisk (and "Slifer") aside for a moment, Ra and Osiris take as their namesakes beings that we, in English, call gods. Ra is "an Egyptian god" because he was worshipped by the Egyptian people, and the same is true of Osiris. So we call their Yu-...

Two reasons: Rarity and plot. Exodia is supposedly the strongest monster and summoning him means you win. In normal circumstances, summoning Exodia is very hard, and decks that can are hard to pull it off: You draw a starting hand of 5 cards out of a minimum deck of 40 cards. This means you need to draw 5 specific cards in the entire deck, which is roughly ...

The Yu-gi-oh! GX dub by 4Kids ends after the defeat of Yubel, which is in episode 155. This is the 3rd main arc in the anime, the Dimension World Arc (Note that 156, while still belonging to this arc, was never dubbed). However, there is one more arc of the anime which was never dubbed in English, which is just called Season 4. The conclusion of season 4 (...

Yugi does lose a duel in the manga and Toei anime, but not in Duel Monsters In chapters 46 and 47 of the manga, and episode 18 of the Toei anime, Yugi plays a game of Dragon Cards (called Dragon Block in the anime) against Imori, a student from his school (this was back when the series used a different game nearly every chapter, before it changed to focus ...

The intro sequence showing of monsters at the end only changes 3 times in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series At the start of the series, Yugi became famous for not only defeating Kaiba but also summoning Exodia which is shown in the flashback prior to his grandfather saying it hadn't been done before. So, Exodia became an iconic card to Yugi's fame, enough so ...

If you are referring to Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium World then according to Wikipedia Viz released the first volume of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga up to the end of the Monster World arc under its original title. Starting from the last chapter of the seventh Japanese volume, the Duelist Kingdom, Dungeon Dice Monsters, and Battle City arcs are released under the title Yu-...

To clarify before I proceed, I am referring to "Yu-Gi-Oh!" as the story from Duelist Kingdom up until and including the Millenium World arc (including anime fillers in between although my answer does not discuss it). I will not consider the original 7 volumes of the manga, Season 0 of the anime or GX/5D's/Zexal/Arc-V. Basically most the story that involves ...

It started out as being a manga about a kid who became possessed by an ancient spirit residing in the Millennium Puzzle who fought evil games It was originally a horror manga. In order to make the fights original, the author made the fights Shadow Games that reveal the dark nature of players. As for why the story deviated from the original, that's what ...

The academy was created by Seto Kaiba who first owned Obelisk while Yugi owned Slifer. We can infer from Kaiba's personality that Kaiba always wants to be better than Yugi, so he placed the rank of Obelisk the highest and Slifer the lowest. For Ra, the card was originally owned by Marik, and the only spot left the rank could be placed is in the between the ...

In terms of the anime, the God Cards have been made weaker due to new mechanics added to the game. At the end of the original series, Yugi was able to defeat all 3 at once. I should also point out that Exodia under the rules of the anime, if assembled will win even if the opponent has 2 of Obolisk and Slifer, one of Ra and has infinite hand in play. Also, ...

The name Osiris was changed to Slifer by 4Kids employee Sam Murakami, possibly due to religious symbol/reference. According to Wikipedia, A god card in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game, originally named Sky Dragon of Osiris (オシリスの天空竜 Oshirisu no Tenkūryū), was renamed "Slifer the Sky Dragon" after Slifer by 4Kids Entertainment employee Sam Murakami. ...

Its probably skipped for brevity. In episode 97 of season 2, Bakura offers three monsters as a tribute to summon the Winged Dragon of Ra, just like any other monster he instantly appears. Sphere Mode, as well as the cinematic appearance of the summoning, was probably just skipped because after Joyful Doom's effect a Ra with 0 ATK is not a spectacular sight ...

Yes, everyone can come to use it First off, the definition of Heart of the Cards is a little hazy. The best definition I can come up with is: Having something worth dueling for besides yourself (e.g. friendship) Having faith that your cards will come through for you when you need them to In Yu-Gi-Oh! 1x22 "Face Off, Part 1", Seto Kaiba comes to an ...

I would say this is a fairly opinion-based question, since some people will say the anime is superior to the manga, while many others will say vice versa. I would say the manga is a better place to start; it is its most faithful form, without fillers and without card games shoehorned into every available opportunity. It should be noted that unlike the ...

If you want to start watching the series you should better start from the first anime adaptation of the manga with the same name released in 1998. see Yu-Gi-Oh! (1998 TV series) It is based on chapters 1-59 of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga series. here is a list of the first 59 episodes in the anime. You should check this post. What's the correct order in which to ...

There is no YGOTAS season 4 yet, so "these guys from season 4" are from the actual show when it starts getting all trippy and Egyptian.

The 5D's is meant to represent the legendary 5 Dragons (Signer Dragons) that the protagonists (Signers) use in order to fight the antagonists (Dark Signers). These dragons are: Stardust Dragon Red Dragon Archfiend Black Rose Dragon Ancient Fairy Dragon Black-Winged Dragon

The editor of the English Version of the Manga, Jason Thompson stated that the licensing of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga had not been entirely coordinated, so Viz decided to use many of the original character names and to "keep it more or less violent and gory." Thompson said that the manga "was almost unchanged from the Japanese original." Because the core fanbase ...

I honestly can't recall any where he didn't have an 'additional' affect to something, or went and did something impossible for a card game (like smashing the moon against mako or breaking the float ring against the floating castle)... Also pot of greed lets you draw 2 cards from your deck

There are holographic technologies that allow you to "touch" holograms using a machine that applies pressure to anything that touches the hologram. Maybe the machines Kaiba made with the colourful lights, are able to do that, in a minor scale that is not harmful.

My best guess is immersion, like if you're playing a vr game and you're about to get attacked or something and flinch a bit, let's be honest here though it's just to make the duels dramatic. (I'm talking about the first and second series')

It was implied that Atem's (Yami Yugi's) deck and the Millenium Puzzle were left inside his tomb in Egypt. But in the Movie, Yugioh: The Dark Side of the Dimension, it was shown that the Millenium Puzzle got reassembled again, but nothing happened. In Episode 086 of Yugioh GX! (which is set years after YGO: TDSotD), Pegasus said that the Egyptian God Cards ...
