World Championship

During World Championship tournaments, all cards are automatically set to their lowest allowed status in any region. (For example, a card that is on the Semi-Limited list in one region but the Limited list in another will be Limited on the World Championship banlist, and a card that is Forbidden in one region but Unlimited in another will be Forbidden.)

However, in addition to any cards that are Forbidden on either the OCG or TCG lists, several other cards are also made Forbidden:

Anime and manga

During the Battle City arc it is mentioned that cards that directly damage the player, such as "Hinotama", "Meteor of Destruction", and "Raigeki", are Forbidden.[1]

When taken to the Virtual World, the Egyptian God cards were excluded from the virtual card database, since Lector noted they are forbidden cards.[2]

A handful of other cards are noted by characters as "Forbidden" in the anime, including "Golden Castle of Stromberg" in Yu-Gi-Oh!,[3] "Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End"[4] and "Infernalvania" in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX,[5] "Gate Blocker" and "Gate Blocker 2" in official Turbo Duels in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's,[6][7] and "Restraining Sword of Impact" in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V.[8]
