Censored Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards

Hello fellow Duelists, and welcome to a special post! Censorship in the Yu-Gi-Oh card game has been a huge thing in North America. Many cards are changed completely from the original Japanese art. Some of them are understandable, while others leave me shaking my head. This post will be covering some of my favorite cards that Konami of America decided to censor.

  • Fiend Comedian Type: Normal Trap Current Artwork: A cute, comical duo of a green fiend and his yellow toothed assistant. 

This card barely saw play when it was released, however it’s used quite frequently in today’s meta. It has many synergies with mill decks, and the large card removal is more useful than people give it credit for. This, however, isn’t the original artwork, and the changes made were completely necessary. The original card looked like something straight out of a Japanese Horror film! The green fiend is now covered in throbbing veins, and has a very long tongue. The pink fiend, on the other hand, is completely screwed up! He has bulging eyes, is licking a large blade, and for some reason, has an afro.

  • Parasite Paracide Type: Insect Earth Effect Appearance: A fearsome looking parasite with many tentacles and sharp fangs.

This card is not only one of the more annoying things in the game, but is also one of Insector Haga’s (Weevil Underwood’s) key cards. No other card can shuffle itself into the opponent’s deck, and literally “infect” its monsters. I do enjoy the international artwork of the card, but the Japanese original is a brilliant homage to body horror. It depicts an absolutely horrified knight with the titular card crawling out of his face. This is totally something that John Carpenter would make, and I love it for that.
