Yu-Gi-Oh! Paper Craft Art Takes Black Rose Dragon to Next Level

The Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise is filled to the brim with fantastic monster designs, and some of the coolest ones are reserved for the series' dragons. This was especially true during the iteration of the series where the dragons were most important in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.

One of the standout dragons of that series was Akiza's Black Rose Dragon, and now a cool fan project has added a new dimension to the fan-favorite dragon design.

Twitter user @mozza120x2 (who you can find out Twitter here) shared their paper craft recreation of the Black Rose Dragon, and it's immediately gone viral with Yu-Gi-Oh's parent company Konami even taking notice. Check it out below!

Not only is this a fantastic recreation of the original dragon, but it seems there has been a ton of time poured into this creation. @mozza120x2 shared an elaborate thread on the process it took to create the paper craft on Twitter, and revealed that the materials used were as inexpensive as you would expect. Though this definitely seems like it would run a pretty penny among fans.

The Black Rose Dragon is a special Synchro monster that made its debut during Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's. The main monster of Black Rose Akiza's deck, the Black Rose Dragon was brought to life in a much different way than other monsters thanks to her psychic abilities. Needless to say, it's made a big impression on fans.

Yu-Gi-Oh! was originally created by Kazuki Takahashi for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and ran from September 1996 to March 2004. The series follows Yugi Mutou, a young boy who solves an ancient puzzle and is possessed by the spirit of the Egyptian pharoah. Being skilled at deadly games, the Pharoah goes on to create and solve problems for Yugi based on deadly games of chance.

Two anime adaptations were created for the series, but the one most fans will recognize is Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters. Duel Monsters was the first arc in the story to focus on the "Duel Monsters" card game and was the first season licensed for an English language release by 4Kids Entertainment. The first season of the series, which fans often dub as "Season 0," has such deadly games of chance with horrible consequences that fans could not believe it was a part of this series at first.

Pokemon Fan-Art Gives Eeveelutions Hilarious Yu-Gi-Oh! Makeover

Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokemon share quite a bit in common as both franchises have spawned an anime, card game, and video games.

The order in which they did so might have been different, and each might have come from a different origin, but both series have a wide variety of characters and monsters that fans have come to love over the years. But what would it look like if you mashed the two together?

One fan did just that as they mashed together the wild hair and clothing styles of Yu-Gi-Oh's main characters together with Eevee's various evolutions to a surprising result. Check it out below!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Switch Game is Getting a Physical Release in the West

Konami recently announced plans to bring the Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution game to Switch in the west this summer, and now those plans have been expanded. In addition to the digital release, Konami has a physical retail version on the way, with more details to come later this month. 

Yu-Gi-Oh Fans Spot One Clever Pokemon Easter Egg

Yu-Gi-Oh! is one of the biggest manga and anime franchises offered today, and it has only gotten much bigger over its 20 year long tenure.

The real life card game inspired by the series is just as huge, and has expanded to thousands of different types of cards over its long run too. This has resulted into a few cards being a little playful and referencing outside pop culture, and fans have spotted a clever Pokemon Easter Egg hidden in one of the newer cards.

The Performapal line of monster cards were introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, and they make their mark by being a cute line of magician inspired monsters. But one monster in particular looks a lot like the starter Pokemon Charmander.

Is it just me or does Performapal Lizardraw look EXACTLY like Charmander from r/yugioh

As highlighted by Toku-Nation on Reddit, the monster card Performapal Lizardraw shares a striking resemblance to Charmander. The resemblance is most noticeable in the monster's head, which does match Charmander's design. Fans have made all sorts of jokes pertaining to this by referencing the "Can I copy your homework?" meme, and that Charmander is trying to work its way into Yu-Gi-Oh without being noticed.

But the biggest Easter Egg comes with the name as "Lizardraw" is awfully close to Charizard's original Japanese name, "Lizardon." Now this isn't an official confirmation that this design was inspired by the Pokemon favorite, but it's definitely a good argument for it. That's just one too many coincidences.

Why Yu-Gi-Oh Is Still Relevant

Yu-Gi-Oh is a trading card game in which everyone can battle or trade cards with other people, and it was even once a children’s cartoon show.

Why Yu-Gi-Oh Is Still Relevant

Yu-Gi-Oh is not the only card game though. There’s also Magic: The Gathering and Pokemon. If you don’t already know, people nowadays people don’t know much about Yu-Gi-Oh or even remember the name for that matter, so is it still relevant? Well, the answer is yes, it is.

The main reason is that people still do tournaments every year. Many people do attend them, and at every tournament, there will always be a new series of cards, which can be bought. Junior, Tony Drain plays the game and even goes to the tournaments. He said, “I attend the tournaments myself because I make a new deck. Every time I get new cards, and I always want to test my deck out.”

Another topic is the cards themselves. They still bring new types of cards and series, like this year’s “Speed Duel,” where you have up to three monsters and spell/trap cards on the field. They also brought new cards called “skills” that can be used in duels. “In my opinion, this mode is great. The reason is it’s more quick, and sometimes when I play the regular duels, it would take hours. But now with speed duel, it’s much quicker now,” said Tyler Johnson, junior.

The last example would be the show itself. While it doesn’t appear too much nowadays, they do have new anime show called Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS. Right now, the show only appears in Japan, because it’s first in Japanese. When it gets to America, they change to English voice actors. This will happen when they are done with the series. “While I do enjoy much better the first series of Yu-Gi-Oh, this one is not too bad. I would say that it does have its moments,” said Fredy Noguera.

Yu-Gi-Oh may not have the same cultural potency as it used to, but saying it’s no longer relevant is probably wrong.

Yu-Gi-Oh Fans Can't Stop Seeing the Blue-Eyes White Dragon in Game of Thrones

One of the most iconic monsters in Yu-Gi-Oh! is Seto Kaiba's Blue-Eyes White Dragon. It's such an iconic figure of the popular manga, anime, and card game that fans can't help but recognize it when other white dragons fill the screens.

One of the most prominent recent examples is of Game of Thrones' Viserion, which has been conquered by the Night King and is now a blue dragon that spits out a blazing fire.

Much like how the Blue-Eyes White Dragon's white lightning attack can clear out monsters with a single breath, Game of Thrones' Viserion has shown off its power in the latest episode of the series. Read on to see some of the ways fans are comparing the two series below.

'Yu-Gi-Oh!' Fans Want To Snap Off With This Infinity Gauntlet Duel Disk

When it comes to power cheats, there are some items you got to have. Game Sharks did the trick for gamers long after the Konami Code showed up.

For fans of Yu-Gi-Oh!, a solid deck with Exodia chilling to the side gave a solid chance at victory, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe has its own catch all. There is a reason Thanos wanted the Infinity Gauntlet so bad, and it seems one fan has taken the glove a step too far.

After all, nothing good can come from an Infinity Gauntlet-style Duel Disk that comes complete with the five pieces of Exodia. However, that doesn't mean fans won't want to snap it.

Over on Reddit, fans began buzzing when a photo was posted of a custom-made Duel Disk. The image, which can be seen below, shows what the terribly powerful combo of Exodia and the Infinity Gems might look like.

This is to powerful from r/gaming

As you can see, the Duel Disk is set into a gauntlet that looks just like the golden won worn by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. However, the sleek piece has the sections of Exodia put into play, and Yu-Gi-Oh! fans know what that means. With the legendary card assemble, it is an automatic game over for whoever is playing against this Duel Disk's player, and that means it is timing for another (Life Points) decimation.

With Avengers: Endgame on the horizon, this clever mash-up has resurfaced to some serious hype, and it isn't hard to think of ways to make your own Infinity Gauntlet TCG accessory. However, if you wait a bit, an actual replica of Seto Kaiba's Duel Disk will be going on sale, and the pricey purchase will have diehard fans ready to d-d-d-d-duel.

Yu-Gi-Oh! was originally created by Kazuki Takahashi for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and ran from September 1996 to March 2004. The series follows Yugi Mutou, a young boy who solves an ancient puzzle and is possessed by the spirit of the Egyptian pharoah.

YU-GI-OH! TOURNAMENTS TO PENALIZE PLAYERS FOR BEING SMELLY

Konami is cracking down on poor hygiene at its official Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tournaments, with the implementation of a new rule that penalizes players if they or their clothes are "dirty or bad-smelling."

The new rule, posted to the official Yu-Gi-Oh! blog as part of a wider tournament policy update, can be found under a subsection labeled "Hygiene." It reads: "This is a new section, requiring all persons attending a tournament to be clean and wear clean clothing. If you or your clothing is excessively dirty or bad-smelling, you can be penalized."

The new rule appears to be a welcome policy update, judging by players' reactions online. A post linking to the new policy on the Yu-Gi-Oh! subreddit is overwhelmingly, if not entirely, filled with messages of support. "Best timeline," reads the post's top comment.

Another comment, however, poses a valid question: How will the smell rule be enforced? It's likely that will be left to the discretion of the judges, though the subjectivity of stink may lead to controversy.

Yu-Gi-Oh's Seto Kaiba teases his Jump Force skills in slight trailer

Less is more, I guess


The stoic young man is one of Yu-Gi-Oh's primary characters, and wields his signature cards "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and "Obelisk the Tormentor" with devastating precision. Not one for pleasantries, Kaiba. A modern incarnation of Priest Seto, Kaiba is arrogant and generally disrespectful of others, though he does look out for his younger brother, Mokuba.

You can check out Seto Kaiba in action below. Look fast, as the spot lasts barely 20 seconds. There is no specific date for his release, but he will be a part of May's DLC drop. Jump Force is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
