With shiny silver lettering, paler colors, and a holographic effect that depicts the images popping out of the frame, these rarities show the monsters of the game in an almost ethereal light. With only 40 types of creatures printed in the Ghost Rare edition, many of these cards have the artwork and the dueling abilities that would make them the highlight of any Yu-Gi-Oh! fans collection.

10. Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon

Yugioh Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon

This Monster card is equipped with Special Summons and can be played by sacrificing two other Monsters with a high number of attack points. If it battles another Monster, it can banish both itself and its opponent then come back once its player finishes their turn.

The Ghost Rare version of Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon looks absolutely cosmic, with the standard red edges on its wings and tail changing to a subtle silver. The holographic effect makes the photon wings seem much more expansive.

9. Elemental Hero Chaos Neos

Yugioh Elemental Hero Chaos Neos

This is a Warrior card that can join a duel when a player shuffles their cards and flips a coin to determine what damage the card inflicts. If luck is on their side, they can eliminate all of an opponent's Monsters.

Despite a Yu-Gi-Oh card design mistake that involves a mix-up with Rainbow Dragon, the original art for Elemental Hero Chaos Neos is incredibly intimidating with its bat-like wings and claws reaching out for its prey. Add the monochromatic scheme of its Ghost Rare form, and players have a card that looks truly demonic.

8. Ancient Fairy Dragon

Yugioh Ancient Fairy Dragon

While this Yu-Gi-Oh! card may be underrated because it is not effective in battle, it is useful for a duelist to build up their active arsenal. It can summon any monster with a level up to 4 without sacrificing any other cards.

The design for Ancient Fairy Dragon is exquisite. With wings like a butterfly, it shines with its flowing mane and electric blue scales. The Ghost Rare edition completely reverses this bright appearance, giving the creature a glow-in-the-dark effect that makes it much more spooky.

7. Rainbow Neos

Yu-Gi-Oh Rainbow Neos

In gameplay, Rainbow Neos can only be used when it is Fusion Summoned with two other cards. Once in action, it forces an opponent to shuffle the cards they control into their deck. This monster's illustration looks almost regal with its angelic wings and imposing armor.

At first, the Ghost Rare version of Rainbow Neos looks simple by substituting its golden details for a single blue-gray. However, when tilted in the light, the holographic printing reveals an entire prism of colors that live up to the Light Warrior's name.

6. Black Rose Dragon

Yu-Gi-Oh Black Rose Dragon

While this Dragon card looks as if it should be Earth-related due to its floral aspects, it actually has Fire attributes. It can be activated with a Synchro Summon and will destroy all the cards on the field as a result.

True to its name, the look of Black Rose Dragon consists of a black body with a thorny tail and magenta rose petals for wings. In its Ghost Rare form, the magenta fades to an icy white like a rose caught out in the first frost of winter.

5. Bujinki Ameratsu

Yu-Gi-Oh Bujinki Amaterasu

This female Beast-Warrior is an Xyz-type card, meaning it is stored in the Extra Deck. Once it is summoned, it can bring a player's banished cards back to their hand.

The artwork for Bujinki Ameratsu is breathtaking with a flowing lavender skirt beneath its angled armor, a sharp jet-black crown on top of its violet hair, and a powerful sword highlighted by rays of light. With the holographic element added in the Ghost Rare print, a multicolored effect adds to the aura of the mystical figure.

4. Honest

Yugioh Honest

There are players who argue that this Fairy-type card has moves so powerful that it should have been banned in Yu-Gi-Oh. Honest can jump from the playing field back into a duelist's hand for later use, or sacrifice itself to give more attack points to another Light card.

Designed in the image of an angel, the original artwork for Honest is full of warm colors, from the tricolor tips of its wings to its long golden locks. The Ghost Rare version loses this warmth and resembles more of a stone statue, yet still maintains its awe-inspiring beauty.

3. Rainbow Dragon

Yu-Gi-Oh Rainbow Dragon

In order to use this Dragon card, a player must use a Special Summons involving 7 different Crystal Beast cards. Once on the field, Rainbow Dragon gains a massive amount of attack points. This Monster's illustration is astonishingly elaborate.

It spreads out its large celestial wings while its silver scales are adorned with jewels from every color of the rainbow. The Ghost Rare variation seems to hide this grandeur behind a look of granite, but the holographic effect soon reveals its true kaleidoscopic nature.

2. Stardust Dragon

Yu-Gi-Oh Stardust Dragon

One of the most valuable cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh! game, this Monster card can sacrifice itself in order to save another card from being destroyed. The player can then use a Special Summons to bring it back from the Graveyard.

The design of Stardust Dragon is a sight to behold, with immense tattered wings and baby blue scales decorated with indigo gems. In the Ghost Rare edition, its body pales to a full bright white throughout with an aqua blue glow that demonstrates its zephyr-based essence.

1. Majestic Star Dragon

Yu-Gi-Oh Majestic Star Dragon

As a Synchro card, Majestic Star Dragon is very helpful for strategic dueling. When an opponent activates an effect, this card can be sacrificed to take out all of the cards that the opponent controls.

The image of Majestic Star Dragon is utterly stupendous. With diamond-like skin and space-age-style wings, it is as if the creature truly came from the stars. As for the Ghost Rare form, it takes the bright shine of the original design and melts into a galactic blue that is reminiscent of a faraway nebula.
