Kinshi Kādo


Forbidden card

In the OCG and the TCG Advanced Format, Forbidden (禁止 Kinshi) cards, sometimes unofficially called banned, are cards that players are not allowed to use in their Main Deck, Side Deck, or Extra Deck. There are no Forbidden cards in the Traditional Format; by default, all Forbidden cards are Limited in the Traditional Format.

These cards are Forbidden as of July 1, 2016 for the OCG, and April 11, 2016 for the TCG Advanced Format.

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]

A handful of other cards are noted by characters as "Forbidden" in the anime, including "Golden Castle of Stromberg"[2] in Yu-Gi-Oh! and "Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End"[3] and "Infernalvania"[4] in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX.
