Crazy Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Art (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more strange card art. Now, let’s duel!

  • Twin Long Rods 2 Type: Aqua Attribute: Water 3 Stars Atk: 850 Def: 700 Normal

Aside from the name sounding like a penis, this creature is just strange! It has an extremely odd body, and an absolutely terrifying face. Its eyes are popping out of its head and it has a horrifying expression that shows all of its teeth. The body almost resembles a dildo, and the veiny purple coloring doesn’t help at all!

  • Doom Donuts Type: Fiend/Dark Flip Effect Atk:0 Def: 0 1 star

I guess pastries are evil now?! This monster actually looks kind of cool, however its effect is questionable. What we have is a yellow, demonic looking donut with sharp teeth and bright red eyes. It can kill every monster with 0 attack and defense if its flipped up. This absolutely destroys cubic monsters, and all of those annoying XYZ creatures. Although the card is quite useful, it’s still just a living pastry!

  • Velvet Ant (Dasymultila klugii) Size: 0.75 in Habitat: The North American Southwest  Diet: Larvae and adult insects Schmidt Pain Level: 3

The Velvet Ant, or “cow killer”, is a large ground wasp with a hairy, orange body. While not an actual species of ant, its appearance can confuse people. It’s known for delivering an excruciating sting that can last for 30 minutes. Only the females have the stinger, which is quite long and pointy. Coyote Peterson described the pain as radiating and fiery with a tingling sensation.

The Tarantula Hawk is an incredibly scary, parasitic wasp with an amazingly painful sting. They hunt tarantulas, and paralyze them before eating them whole. The pain is equivalent to being shocked with a taser. The females are the only ones that sting, and won’t unless provoked.

More Bizarre Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Art (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more strange card art. Now, it’s time to duel!

  • Soitsu 4 stars Type: Fairy Attribute: Wind  ATK: 0 DEF: 0 Normal Monster

I never was a big fan of these “paper airplane monsters.” They’re a pain to summon, and they only provide a large attack boost to those in their archetype.  All of these creatures are missing eyes and are completely useless alone. Soitsu is a green colored, nude humanoid with a pronounced butt. He’s also flexing both of his arms.

  • Tongyo Normal Type: Water/Fish 4 Stars ATK: 1350 DEF: 800

UGH! What the hell is this abomination?! It appears to be some kind of fish with an extra long tongue. It has sharp, blue teeth and eyes that are bulging and crossed. I guess this is what happens when you give a fish cocaine!

The game stars the main character, “You”, an anime-obsessed high schooler who’s coaxed into joining a Literature Club by their childhood friend, Sayori. Points of the game require you to make poems, and this is where the plot really shines. Your choices of words, decide on which of the four girls you’ll get to know. I will now describe the girls in a non-spoiler way. First there’s Sayori, your peach-haired childhood friend. She’s incredibly friendly and cheerful in nature. She’s also quite air headed, and is often late for school. Second, there’s Yuri, an elegant, tall, and mature girl with large breasts and purple hair. She’s into dark horror stories, and is quite timid in nature. She also is the Vice President of the Literature Club.  Third, there’s Natsuki, a short girl with bright pink hair. She’s very tsundere in nature, and loves baking cupcakes. She also has a soft spot for cute things. Last, there’s Monika. Monika is the president of the Literature Club, and is tall, brown-haired, beautiful, and athletic. Her interests are spoiler-heavy, so I’ll leave it to the viewer to find out! In conclusion, Doki Doki Literature Club is a incredibly amazing game, that is guaranteed to make you jump out of your skin!
