20 Times Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards Were Censored

Yu-Gi-Ohis one of the more popular card games around the world. Shocking, I know. While the game is fun, and the thrill of picking up a booster pack is intoxicating, collectors have always been disappointed with the amount of censorship that is in the international version of the game.

From religious and demon references to blood and sexual content; nothing is safe from the censors.

1. Psychic Commander

The hand pose was changed so it wouldn’t look like the Nazi salute.


2. Avatar of the Pot

His man-thong was switched for something a little more modest.


3. Dark Magician Girl

Three changes were made; cleavage removed, chest sized reduced, and the hexagram is replaced with a red jewel.


4. Dark Witch

Three changes were made; dress is made longer, cleavage is removed, and chest size is reduced.


5. Flying Fortess

The rockets were removed.

7. Goddess of Whim

A poor MS Paint job was done to cover up her cleavage and reduce her chest size.


8. Bicular

Cone is removed from his jock so it won’t appear that he is attacking you with his dong.


9. Water Girl

MS Paint strikes again.


10. Asleep at the Switch

They took the king’s cross necklace and gave a tank top.


11. Harpie Queen

Allow me to introduce you to clothes.


12. Enchanting Mermaid

I have a feeling that they are trying to tell us that cleavage is very bad.


13. Junk Berserker

The face on his junk was moved up to the chest.


14. Cyber Tutu

Lengthened the skirt and made it less transparent. Can’t have kids staring at the booty.


15. Kunoichi

Absolute territory is too corrupting. Get rid of it.


16. Allure Queen LV7

Skirt is longer and she has a classy underskirt.


17. Celestia, Lightsworn Angel

Her halo was removed to avoid religious reference, despite the fact that she is angel.


18. Destiny Board

The Ouija board was removed. Also, the international version spells FINAL whereas the Japanese version spells DEATH.


19. Corroding Shark

The shark’s blood and guts were removed.


20. Dramatic Rescue

The card got brand new art work except for the sentient hand.


This is just a taste of the censored cards that are out there. What are some that you know of?
