Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards: The 10 Strongest Monster Cards

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards: The 10 Strongest Monster Cards

The best monsters in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards have high attack and huge defense while a few even have powerful effects. Here are the strongest!

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards is a video game for the Game Boy Advance that was released in North America on November 4, 2003, and is remembered as a game that was somewhat short, yet full of awesome dueling action that makes video games about the popular card game always interesting.

The story follows the Battle City arc of the anime, where Yugi and his friends participate in a Duel Monsters tournament hosted by KaibaCorp set in the middle of an urban landscape. In addition to the fun gameplay and unique story that delves into the past, players can obtain a ton of incredibly powerful monster cards in which to crush their AI competition.

The best possess monstrously high Attack and colossal Defense while a few even have powerful effects for when sheer force is not enough. These powerhouses also come with neat little card descriptions unique to the game that elaborate on their existence and lore; a nice feature for fans of the franchise's long history and innovative creature designs. The Egyptian God cards will be left out, as acquiring them is locked behind story events.

10. Dark Sage - Attack 2800 | Defense 3200

Yugioh dark spellcaster effect monster.

"An Imposing And Powerful Sage That Dons Striking Black Clothes. He Is A 'Dark Magician' Who Gained Power Over Many Years."

One can think of Dark Sage as an evolution of a Dark Magician, for they are greater in both stats and effects. To summon this elder Spellcaster, duelists will need to sacrifice a Dark Magician immediately after resolving the effect of Time Wizard in which one called the correct outcome of the coin toss. While being very situational, players can thankfully summon Dark Sage directly from their deck.

9. Cosmo Queen - Attack 2900 | Defense 2450

Yugioh dark spellcaster normal monster.

"A Woman Of Distinguished Demeanor And Enormous Power. She Is Said To Rule Over All The Stars And Planets In The Cosmos."

A behemoth of a Normal Monster card, Cosmo Queen is renowned for being one of the Spellcasters with the highest base attack stat. One would essentially summon her in order to flatten the opposition with brute force. She can become even more mighty after being equipped with one of the many cards that can buff Dark-type monsters.

8. Blue-Eyes White Dragon - Attack 3000 | Defense 2500

Yugioh the legendary normal dragon monster.

"A Legendary Dragon That Takes Pride In Its Enormous Power. Its Power Of Destruction Far Exceeds Comprehension."

Anyone who has ever had even the slightest interest in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise has likely heard of the legendary Blue-Eyes White Dragon. It is the strongest regular Normal Monster in the game and an icon known as a bringer of destruction. It is the favorite card of Seto Kaiba, who uses his 3 Blue-Eyes to reign devastation upon his foes as often as he can.

7. Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon - Attack 3000 | Defense 2500

Yugioh a parody of the legendary dragon card.

"A Cartoony Dragon That Was A Blue-Eyes White Dragon. It Had Been Drawn Into The Toon World And Transformed."

The animated version of a Blue-Eyes White Dragon that has been sucked into, and warped by, Toon World. It possesses the same tremendous Attack and Defense as the original Blue-Eyes White Dragon, though now also comes with the usual effects of a "Toon" monster, which, among a few other things, lets them attack the opponents directly if the foe does not have a Toon monster of their own.

6. Black Luster Soldier - Attack 3000 | Defense 2500

Yugioh earth warrior ritual monster card.

"The Strongest Of All Warriors, It Suitably Wears Black. It Equals The Blue-Eyes White Dragon In Ability."

As its description mentions, it is on par with the mighty Blue-Eyes White Dragon in combat potential, however, Black Luster Solider is a Ritual Monster that can only be summoned with the "Black Luster Ritual" Spell card. They possess no effects, like their lore-rival, meaning that this card is one ideally used for brute force tactics or possibly greater strategies.

5. Black Skull Dragon - Attack 3200 | Defense 2500

Yugioh dark dragon fusion monster card.

"A Fiendish Dark Dragon That Is Of Extremely High Rarity. It Is The Fusion Of A Rare Fiend And A Dragon."

Without even looking at Black Skull Dragon's stats, one can glean the depths of their power by taking a gander at their fusion components: one of the strongest Fiend-type monsters and a legendarily powerful Dragon-type beast of darkness. Black Skull Dragon's 3200 Attack is a massive threat to anyone facing this Fusion monster, plus, it also can be boosted by cards that enhance "Archfiends", for this Dark-type Dragon counts as one.

4. Gate Guardian - Attack 3750 | Defense 3400

Yugioh dark warrior effect monster.

"A Combined Being That Consists Of Sanga, Kazejin, And Suijin. Its Powers Place It Among The Strongest Of All Beings."

RELATED: Yu-Gi-Oh: Ranking The Monster Summon Types

Gate Guardian is one of the few monsters that are essentially the combination of others but do not need a fusion card to merge. Their special summoning requirement is actually more expensive, in that one must tribute Sanga of the Thunder, Kazejin, and Suijin to get this crazily powerful Warrior onto the field. Sadly, they don't retain the effects of any of their component monsters, which results in them simply being a beastly force of high Attack and Defense points, though one that is not likely to be overpowered.

3. Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon - Attack 4500 | Defense 3800

Yugioh light dragon fusion monster.

"The Ultimate Of All Dragons That Has Three Awe-Inspiring Heads."

A short and sweet description that says it all. Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon is a fusion of 3 Blue-Eyes White Dragons and possesses a power that feels appropriate for its name, lore, and component monsters. It can be tricky to gather the resources to summon this beast of blinding destruction, but it is always worth it to have this mighty Dragon on one's side.

2. F.G.D. (Five-Headed Dragon) - Attack 5000 | Defense 5000

Yugioh dragon fusion effect dark monster card.

"A Gargantuan Dragon With Five Heads That Is Simply Invincible. It Is Formed By The Fusion Of Five Strong Dragons."

While F.G.D. (which stands for "Five God Dragon") in The Sacred Cards, the real-world card is known in North America as Five-Headed Dragon and is a Dark-type monster with an effect that makes them nearly indestructible. However, the version in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards is a bit different; instead of being Dark-type, they are Divine-type and they also lack their overpowered effect, resulting in them becoming one of the two strongest monsters in the game in terms of stats instead of just being a completely broken card that everyone would use all the time.

1. Master Of Dragon Soldier (Dragon Master Knight) - Attack 5000 | Defense 5000

Yugioh light dragon fusion effect monster card.

"A Huge And Awesomely Strong Dragon That Can Be Powered Up Based On The Number Of Dragons On The Player's Field."

Equally mighty to F.G.D. is the Dragon Master Knight, known in The Scared Cards as Master of Dragon Soldier, this Light-type monster is a fusion beast borne from Black Luster Soldier and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon. In addition to having ridiculously high Attack and Defense, they also possess an effect that increases their already colossal Attack by 500 for every other Dragon ally on the field.
