Top 10 Best Yugioh Link Monsters

Many Yugioh players went crazy when link monsters were released, the game had changed completely and these new monsters were deemed unnecessary. Now though, Yugioh is still going strong and link monsters are accepted by the community. Not many link monsters have been released, particularly outside of asia, but there’s still enough to make a list such as this one. There is one card from the OCG that isn’t released in English yet, I’ll update the list when more are released.

Disclaimer: Archetypes have been avoided. Lets be honest, you already know the best archetypes. This list will focus on lesser known and/or ‘independent’ cards. Excluding entry number 8, I ran out of cards to choose from lol

 


10. Topologic Bomber Dragon

Toplogic Bomber Dragon, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

This monster can be awesome, it’s the lack of reliability that puts it in 10th place. The effect to destroy all monsters in main monster zones can be a huge advantage, or it can be detrimental to your efforts. It depends on the situation really, if you manage to get full usage out of the effect then it can be a game-winner on its own.

9. Link Spider

Link Spider, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

The most simple link monster released yet, Link Spider is a good starter for any deck looking to find its trade in the new Yugioh version. It’ll grant you more options when its on the field, giving you the ability to summon a normal monster from your hand, then you can use both that monster and Link Spider to summon another, better link monster. That’s pretty much the main usage, its a sacrifice for better things!

8. Ib, the World Chalice Priestess

Ib the World Chalice Priestess, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

I know it belongs to an archetype and I wanted to leave archetype monsters out but there wasn’t that many non-archetype link monsters to choose from, one had to make the list. I chose the one that fits into most decks nowadays, Ib the World Chalice Priestess is a great choice for any deck that can meet its requirements. Singular type or attribute decks won’t benefit from this card but any other will. It’ll serve as a means to get stronger, more powerful monsters on as Ib’s effect will prevent itself and/or a current monster from being destroyed.

7. Missus Radiant

Missus Radiant, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

An upgraded version of the classic Milus Radiant, I hope we see more of the same for other old cards. This card is perfect for an earth attribute deck, the ATK/DEF stats it provides is too good to pass up, especially when you consider how easy it is to summon. If it does get destroyed, you get an earth monster back to your hand, such ability to recycle is mandatory for a card like this to be viable!

6. Proxy Dragon

Proxy Dragon, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

Proxy Dragon is one of those cards you can always do with having one or two in your extra deck. It’s simple to summon, requiring any two monsters, and provides you with two extra zones to summon more cards from your extra deck. That alone makes Proxy Dragon useful, its effect is situational and requires the right combos but it can also be useful.

5. Gaia Saber, the Lightning Shadow

Gaia Saber the Lightning Shadow, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

When synchro monsters were first released, a card by the name of Gaia Knight the Force of Earth was released. It looks like Konami is continuing this trend of high ATK Gaia monsters with no effect. While they’re never the first choice, having the option of a high ATK beater is underrated, sometimes a 2600 ATK monster is more valuable than a 2300 ATK monster with a decent effect.

4. Honeybot

Honeybot, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

Summon two Honeybots and enjoy the stalling capabilities.  Of course, Honeybot is only usable in a deck containing cyberse cards but don’t let that dissuade you as you also have the option of using other link monsters to summon Honeybot. So many decks (probably 99% nowadays) like to destroy or target your monsters, this monster helps to alleviate your concerns. An effect like Honeybot’s is crucial to achieving victory, so it’s definitely worth getting your hands on one of these if you can.

3. Decode Talker

Decode Talker, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

Awesome name & awesome art make an awesome card!

Supplying some handy links to main monster zones when its in the extra monster zone, it’s easy to summon and will extend your ability to summon monsters from the extra deck. Not only this, it can gain a size-able ATK stat from its first effect, making it a truly powerful choice in any extra deck.

2. Binary Sorceress

Binary Sorceress, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

It gains benefits depending on the amount of monsters with a mutual link to it. With 1 or more mutual link, Binary Sorceress increases your life points whenever a linked monster destroys another monster by battle, the life points gained is equal to any battle damage your monster inflicted. The other effect allows you to half a monster’s (you control) ATK stat and give the amount to another monster.

All this for a link card that requires any two monsters to summon, although it does require mutual links. But still, such an amazing card!

Not as good as..

 


1. Firewall Dragon

Firewall Dragon, the best link monster in the entire Yugioh game

Firewall Dragon is such an amazing card, especially for how easy it is to summon. Any 4 monsters is required to get this cyberse monster on the field, there it’ll donate generously to your victory. The first effect is fair decent, allowing you to return any monsters (both yours & yours opponents) to the hand from the field or graveyard. Then you get the second effect and what an effect it is. Your monster got destroyed? No worries, here’s another. It’s for this reason Firewall Dragon is by far the best link monster in Yugioh!
