There are thousands of unique cards in Yugioh, in fact there may be a good million or two by now. Konami have produced archetype after archetype with their consistent releases of booster sets. If you ignore the archetypes and epic singles, you’ll find a lot of cards that go straight onto eBay, or into the bin. These cards are pretty much useless, having no real impact in any deck or requiring way too much set-up to get a bit of use out of them. Konami have done this since the inception of Yugioh, here’s a collection of the top 10 worst Yugioh cards of all time!
10. Dancing Elf
So there are plenty of low level monsters with pitiful ATK/DEF stats, the list could be made almost entirely on those. However, I’ve decided to keep it to just one. The card I chose was Dancing Elf, which displays such miserable stats that it has no use whatsoever.
9. Dark Sage
Dark Sage is by no means one of the worst cards when it’s on the field but getting it on there? Good luck with that. Requiring arguably the most difficult summoning conditions in the entire game, Dark Sage is so useless that it cannot fit anywhere other than your binder. You’ll get this as a dead draw constantly, even if you do manage to summon it then what? You get a spell card and a high ATK/DEF monster with no self protection.
8. Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon
Why would you ever summon Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon? If you even have it in your deck then you need to question your life choices. You would need to sacrifice a Red-Eyes B. Dragon equipped with Metalmorph for a card with no effect and just 100 extra ATK. Absolutely pointless.
7. Fortress Whale
Rituals have seen support over the years with specific archetypes that are actually quite decent. The old ritual monsters though, they’re a whole other kettle of fish. The likes of Hungry Burger is terrible but Fortress Whale is even worse. Sure it has more stats but you’ll have to wait to get both it and its Ritual Spell in your hand and then sacrifice monsters to reach the seven star requirements. All for a 2350 ATK/2150 DEF monster.
6. Zone Eater
This may be the most worthless effect monster in the entire game, what kind of duel doesn’t end within 5 turns of playing this card? As its an Aqua type with a Water attribute, it could potentially work in low-level Water/Aqua deck but please, why bother? Zone Eater is bad and it should feel bad.
5. Cold Feet
Maybe it’s just me but this card is absolutely useless, it just harms you more than it helps. Only under extremely situational conditions would this card have a use and even then, there must be hundreds of other cards that can help a lot more in those situations.
3. Sword Slasher
Back when Yugioh was first released, Sword Slasher wouldn’t be one of the worst cards. It wouldn’t be any good that’s for sure, but it’s utterly horrendous nowadays. As a level 5 monster, you would expect something in return for tributing a monster for it but instead you’ll get a card with 1450 ATK and 1500 DEF. Even some level 3 monsters have better stats than that..
2. Larvae Moth
This Insect type series of cards may just be the most pointless in Yugioh history. Thematically they’re brilliant, you must nurture your Petit Moth and the longer you do so, the more powerful it will become. Gameplay wise this is idiotic, who would wait 2 turns for Larvae Moth? Or even be able to reach 5 for Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth?
No one, that’s the answer. Larvae Moth in particular is quite easily one of the worst Yugioh cards in the game.
Players start with 8000 life points, as I’m sure you’re aware. Sparks deals 200 damage to your opponent’s life points, or around 2.5% if they’re at 8000. This is absolutely nothing, it’s a complete waste of space and even the worst Yugioh players won’t give it a second look. Definitely deserves to be called the worst Yugioh card in the game!
