I was wondering who do you think is the stronger duelist of the three? Take Yami Yugi without the Egyptian God Cards but with his deck from battle city, Jaden from season 4 of GX, and then of course Yusei from 5D's all in the same room who would come out victorious? Kalel lsok 20:39, 18 May 2008 (UTC)


JUST SO YOU ALL KNOW! YUGI WOULD WIN NO DOUBT AND SECOND WOULD BE JADEN! WHO THINKS HE IS COOL BECUASE HE CAN PLAY CARDS ON A MOTOR CYCLE SOOOO COOL!! (that was sarcasm about the "cool" part. yugi would win because he has the 3 egyption god cards and he also has the CREATOR OF LIGHT

  • Yusei would be able to beat Jaden. But Yugi would win all. your forgeting that Yami Yugi cheats, his puzzle alters reality. Yugi's cards do what Yugi needs them to do.


    • He only used the puzzle that way in the Ceremonial Duel. --Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
  • Jaden would win because he has Yubel. LOL Jaden would win!!!! he saved the world!!!!!!!
  • Please don't ignore the line Be sure to sign your edits with four tildes: ~~~~. And Yami Yugi would win out of them. But "Little" Yugi, with his deck from Millennium World, would beat any of the three of them. -- Deltaneos 08:46, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Hmm, hard one. i think they would tie in a three way duel. They are equally strong. I mean, the three gods in Yugi Moto's/Yami Yugi's deck, elemental heroes in Jaden Yuki's, and Stardust Dragon and Crimson Dragon are on Yusei Fudo's side. A duel between them would be awesomely epic! I would give anything for them to do that. But thats only my opinion. --Mewtwomaster58 (talkcontribs) 23:43, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, interesting, but i guess i would choose Yugi purely because of his belief in the heart of the cards. While Jaden is sitting back having fun he's being demolished by Yugi's belief. As for Yusei im not too sure. DragonDude 23:07, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

  • I agree that Yugi should win. --Dragon Slayer (Contribs Count) 00:06, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
    • Kaiba beats them all hands down...but out of those three...we have not seen Yusei duel enough to know, but between Yugi and Jaden that last GX episode answers that question. Dmaster (Contribs Count) 00:17, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
      • Yeah, Kaiba's such an awesome duelist that the only time he ever beat Yugi was when he threatened suicide if he lost. Danny Lilithborne 00:20, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
        • Yeah I perfer murder...umm forget I said that. Dmaster (Contribs Count) 00:43, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
        • Joey still owns them all. Getting up after being struck by Winged Dragon of Ra and still winning = BAD. ASS. Rodtheanimegod4ever 00:57, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

  • you guys shouldn't play with yourselves as zane is the real winner Mercinater 02:37, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
    I haven't seen much of the later seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, but I hear Zane becomes really bad. His social skills might even match his duelling skills at that point. Okay that's an exaggeration, but nope, no way would Zane beat Yugi. -- Deltaneos 12:35, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Not true. Zane loses exactly once, and only because he gets blown up by his own Power Bond. I doubt he's at Yugi's level yet, but he's fairly close, as are Aster and The D. Rodtheanimegod4ever 17:50, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
    • Zane was incredibly lucky, and relied too much on the Power Bond combo. It's funny how many people accuse the main characters of topdecking yet overlook Zane's godhands. --Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

    • Yanno, Yubel is technically undefeated. Danny Lilithborne 08:56, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
      • As is Raphael. His one loss was because he did himself in. Rodtheanimegod4ever 17:50, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
        • Raphael's deck relied on drawing the exact same cards at the right time. Not to mention that that last time was still a close call even looking past his voluntary loss.
      • Téa and Serenity are technically undefeated. -- Deltaneos 17:54, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
  • It's a really difficult question for me... Jaden and Yugi are too lucky, but Yusei doesn't need luck, so I choose Yusei. --Rein Weiss Ritter 18:48, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Yusei uses only luck, banking on his deck with the help of the crimson dragon helping him to draw the right cards at the right time. Yugi is going to win. Hands down. Nothing in Jaden or Yusei's decks hold a candle to the power of even a single god card.

  • Jaden perhaps (but not moreso than the likes of Raphael and early Ryo/Zane), but not so much Yugi, who is the best strategist.
  • Somehow I feel that their duel will not reach to the end (maybe Interupted, cutted out), with an advantage for Atem (Yugi). If it would reach to the end, I would like to see Yugi or Yusei win (Jaden hasn't good enough xD) --Blackwings0605 14:53, 31 July 2009

Depends on if the god card effects are going to be the original ones or the new ones that came out of the shonen jump.

Jaden got Bubbleman (Speicial summon plus draw 2 card), Honest (easy gg), and Neo God(unstoppable due tv show battle of monster). In Tv show style of dueling, they don't use effect card to blow up thing. (talk) 18:07, November 16, 2012 (UTC)


I think Yugi should win, preferbaly Atem if hes playing :)! Atem Mutou 18:40, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

i think i would win. but im not an anime character  :( Mini neos 16:58, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

It should already be a foregone conclusion that, as long as Yugi has the "God Draw", he won't lost to either of them. He's the Lucksack/ Topdecking King of Games. So I don't see him losing. Plus, he just crushed Judai in the last episode of GX.

Proof? Rodtheanimegod4ever 18:00, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Yugi was the protagonist most often. And the antagonist will get the lucky draws first and corner the protagonist first, in order to make the latter's comeback more climactic. Rewatch the Ceremonial Duel. Best strategic play ever. --Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

jaden didnt play the cards right. if i got the same luckydraws against yugi, i would have crushed him. and i wouldnt have crushed my self! HA! Mini neos 17:22, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

I say Judai would win because of his lucky draws. Some say that he cheats.

he uses bubblemans effect all wrong, and he summons monsters in face-up defense mode! whats next? face-down attack mode? Mini neos 05:17, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

    • Umm... that was Bubbleman's effect before he was a real card. No "wrongness" there. Rodtheanimegod4ever 06:45, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Does anyone forgot that little yugi defeated all 3 egypcian gods without the dark magician!! he still as the silent swordsmen and silent magician! yugi would won...

yugi and yusei

in anime, i choose yami yugi or atem. but in real live i choose yusei.

I like how you mention "in real life." I have to agree with you on that, in real life, Yusei would be the best of all. Yu-Gi-Oh Rules! 21:19, 13 August 2008 (UTC) rd with over Yusei has like two ca2000 atk points, jaden is small, so is yugi.

Yeah, even though I said they would tie back up there somewhere, in real life, that is, is Yusei and Yugi were real, (sorry Jaden, this isn't your part) I think Yusei would win. In real life, it all depends on terrain. On motorcycles, Yusei would probably crush Yugi. And I also agree with......whoever put that comment up there.-- (talk) 23:57, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Though Yusei could execute a 1 turn 3 kill. So I say Yusei.

Who's the third? Himself?... Plus the fact that Yusei's deck has some stall power (shield wing, ...), it's impossible!!!!!Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 20:37, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Obviously Judai Yuki...

Well, I'd say Jaden because like yeah Yusei just plain sucks to me and yeah, Yugi is pretty decent becuase I don't really he think he's the king of Yubel is within Jaden. I think Jaden owns them all! Sorry if i dissapointed yall... Gotcha!

JADEN RULES! He's better than better with his strategie and fusions than the stupid egyptian gods and StarDust Dragon. My neibors have stardust,and dark magician crud, and i can beat them alot. BUT my other neibor is making an elemental hero/neo spacian deck and he is hard to beat! P.S I have a (GX) style Frog Deck.

  • What are you talking about? Judai's deck is too situational, and most of his fusions are weak. It took his manga cards to make the E-Hero theme worth considering. --Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Anyone who says Jaden would be the best is completely insane.Jaden sucks, half of his duels use the same strategy, effects and cards!No twists or surprises... No doubt he'd lose! Yugi would even have a chance, but Yusei has a lot more options (like synchro monsters) and he's way more emotionally stable, I mean, come on, Yugi is a f***ing emotional wreck, he's totally bipolar, now he's a crybaby, and suddenly he becomes some egyptian badass dude (exorcism, anyone?). So yeah, my bet's on Yusei, he'd totally kick ass!--PL31 (talkcontribs) 15:34, January 24, 2012 (UTC)


Okay, I would practically never choose Jaden, he's just too... too... too light, too unconcentrated on the game for me.

Between Yugi and Yusei? To tell you the truth, I think it would be a tie. I mean, they're both about equal in my book.

Both equally good at dueling, and equally concentrated.

But Jaden? Not a chance.

Just my opinion.

Yu-Gi-Oh Rules! 01:09, 23 July 2008 (UTC)







  • Out of those 3, Yusei would so win. He's not a freakin' lucksack like Yugi and jaden, he has true skill. If you add in other duelists, I'd say Kaiba or Raphael. Bluedog187 01:18, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Are you kidding? Raphael is one of the biggest lucksacks in the series. Kaiba, in spite of his skill, relies on beatstick power. And Yugi's "lucksacks" were a factor of being the protagonist, where they inevitably draw it at the last moment to make things more climactic. (And more often than not, it's because the opponent lucksacked first.) Rewatch the Ceremonial Duel. Never was a duel more strategically played.

i havent seen 5d's yet but so far yugi would flaten jaden if he's his little self or yami yugi because it mensions in gx that jadens duels where all fixed inhis fist year at the academy when banner turns out to be a shadow rider he qotes youre duels have been set up to give you practice for when you duel kagimarou bawnsy 08:57, 23 July 2008 (UTC) your worng re witch the epside jaden beat banner banner say i lied you win all your duels ok the ywar not sit up banner siad he lied jaden wood is tie dwith litltle yugi the mnake siad so jadne beat yusei any time

"Heart of the cards" is a good thing to go by. Have you ever been in a situation were only one card in your deck can help you and you have faith and draw that card?happend to me a lot of times.


~w/o the heart of the cards thing... i think yugi still pawns them all... but in the tcg rules i think yusei... in strategy much of 3 equal... its just they are all damn good...

Have you watched the show 5D's yet, Bluedog187? In the first episode, Yusei says, "My cards... I believe in you... Pull through for me." If that isn't luck, what is? I agree with your opinion, though. :) Yusei does have awesome skill.

Yu-Gi-Oh Rules! 20:25, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Of course I've seen it. What I meant was that he was able to win with the old man's deck and that crappy criminal deck. Being able to win no matter what cards you have sounds like true skill to me. Bluedog187 16:46, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Good point. I agree, but remember he said in both cases something like, "Come on. Let's show the old man your true power!" and something simular to that when using the criminal deck. I agree, that does sound like skill, but it also sounds like luck. All I'm saying is, Yusei has and uses a mixture of great skill and belief in his cards(luck). Yu-Gi-Oh Rules! 00:17, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Yusei. Maybe not as he is now, but he has the potential to be much, much better. He's the least reliant on "luck of the draw," and it helps that his deck would be the most useful of the three in real life. Rodtheanimegod4ever 06:45, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

I think Yusei is just as reliant, if not most reliant on luck. It just doesn't stand out because he doesn't put as much drama into it, like saying "C'mon Heart of the Cards" or "There's only one card in my Deck that can win this". Or it's not made as obvious like with Joey who uses lots of coin flip, die roll, random selection cards. If you think about Yusei uses a lot of cards that are useless in most situations (even most situations generated by his Deck), yet he always only draws them when he needs them. He always gets just the card he needs when he uses "Nitro Synchron's" effect, he only drew "Limit Break" when he was able to use it and needed it, he drew "Speed Spell - Synchro Return", the one time he ever removed a Synchro Monster from play and many other similar situations. Unless he changes the contents of his Deck alot, so these cards are supported, they are incredibly lucky draws. And let's not forget how lucky he was in his Duel with Takasu. -- Deltaneos (talk) 13:47, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Anyone ever hear of a "Side Deck" thats where most of my "special" cards are when i know im going to need them in certain duels! This is where these cards are coming from! And Yusei Rocks so hard that it would take both yugi and jaden to team up just to beat him. Then jaden would turn evil and sneak attack yugi, but yugi would be ready and counter it with something mental and summon his Dark Magician Girl and wipe him out xD (love the DMG :P)

    • HOWEVER** this a free for all and in the end id say Yusei would win. and if anyone starts saying that Believing is the same as Luck then your WRONG! big time. sorry but its the truth. and the only people that say that dont have a bond with there decks like every TRUE duelist does. (yeah geek man xD haha)


Yusei would win. All three have a lot of believe in their decks, and I know from my own experiences that this isn't luck (there are 4 cards in my cousin's deck that awais are in his starting hand and or first draw, in any order, even when I shuffle his deck). But after all, yusei do have ability. Yusei deck is focused on defensive play, until he starts to understands his opponent strategies and then summon the appropriate Synchro Monster to counter it. And without the Egyptian Gods simple removing from play yugi's dark magician, Valkyryon and Buster Blader the only thing yugi would be able to do was going to be to play his monster in defense position agains't jaden and yusei stronger cards, or to summon his other strong monsters, who could easily be defeated by both jaden and yusei. By Snetonobre (talkcontribs) 19:12, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I know I once said they would tie in a three way duel. I changed my mind. Yusei would win, totally. He has Stardust Dragon, Majestic Stardust dragon, and Shooting Quasar Dragon, was it? And one more I can't remember. Meanwhile, Jaden has Yubel and Terra Firma. Yami Yugi had the three god cards. Yusei may have lost his mark in the last episode, and Yugi his puzzle, but Yusei has sychro summon, something Jaden and Yami Yugi don't have. Mewtwomaster58 (talkcontribs) 21:52, April 12, 2011 (UTC)

I say Jaden

because hes a major top decker and with his evil hero deck i think he'd win.

  • Hehe, that does seem true. The top decking would be useful. OsmiuMap 22:12, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Oh, COME ON, you can do better than this! Jaden is just a big lucksack that almost doesn't even evolve his abilities throughout the series, he goes from kinda good to good, and then they crown him as if he was a f***ing god, but really, who do you think would win, ex-inmate hardcore Yusei, with a mighty ginormous badass dragon and fearsome mechanical warriors, puny Jaden, with a man who shoots bubbles and some weird dude from space, or bipolar Yugi (who needs an exorcism by the way), with some magical bloke and lots of cards without effect? I think Yusei is the obvious answer. Dunno about you, but if Jaden won I'd go mental.....--PL31 (talkcontribs) 15:55, January 24, 2012 (UTC)


Come on it has to be Jaden since he is the best. Airblade86 21:40, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

  • I'd have to go with Yugi since his name means 'game' doesn't it? OsmiuMap 22:12, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Yugi means game? didnt know that

Yeah i sure "yugioh" means king of games :)

  • I think yusei means planetary. Jaden would definitely win because he is the only actual good duellist because yugi has atem and yusei has super signer powers, and jaden has nothing(except yubel in series 4 and he barly uses it) and if that stuff was taken away jaden would win easily.
  • if you look at their aces : dark magician, neos, stardust stardust would win but if you look at the best card they can summon using the aces(mirage Knight:yugi,magestic star dragon:yusei,rainbow neos:jaden) jaden clearly wins and jaden's is the only one that lasts more than a turn

Did you count Yusei's Shooting Star and Shooting Quasar plus Yugi's Egyptian Gods? Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 20:48, June 10, 2011 (UTC) jaden's hero deck owns stupid dark magician to hell with yugi and yusei


Good news the 5D's has come out in english so you can see that Yusei's the best. Nidzajojo

Yugi. Yu-Gi-Oh! See? The game is named after him, so that is already a huge advantage! Besides that, he has the best lucksack abilities. He could bust out the Jack-King-Queen combo by turn 2 and summon DM for 2500 direct damage, putting him at a huge lead. Or even on his first turn with Card Destruction/ Monster Reborn

You should almost never tribute to summon Dark Magician. (summon it with Magical Dimention, Dark Magic Curtain,...)

Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 20:52, June 10, 2011 (UTC) At least that is what I would like to say. But since NOONE plays with MST, Harpies Feather Duster, Dust Tornado, or other continuous magic destroying cards, Yusei would win due to speed world's 2000 damage per spell effect. Or Scrap Iron Scarecrow's effect. But with an updated deck, Yugi hands down. 18:50, 6 October 2008 (UTC) - I'm sorry, this is my first time posting in a wiki and I seem to have screwed up the formatting somehow X_X Really sorry.

Although, one thing I don't get from GX... God Cards can only be affected by magic for 1 turn, so wouldn't Jaden have won the final duel had he not attacked Slifer? Then the dragon would have just gone to the graveyard and Jaden could have direct attacked with neos... or am I missing some card they played that negates this ruling? 18:48, 6 October 2008 (UTC)BSD

  • I think that monsters of Divine-Beast type only go back after one turn, but since Yugi changed Osiris to a warrior type it will stay out on the field. -- Sub 03:49, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
  • But again, Jaden's goal is to have fun, not being seriously. --FredCat100 20:08, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
  • 3 things:
 1 the duel never ended so Jaden could definitely pulled something of and if couldn't he wouldn't of attacked.
 2 it was the last episode of gx and they wanted to end with some thong exiting like picture of neos taking on  slifer
 3 if jaden had attacked with shining flare wingman he would have won

How would he have won with Shining Flare? I recently watched season4 and Slifer had 5000 attack while Shining Flare had 4300. I also saw no face down cards and while it is possible he had Honest in his hand, it seemed more like he gave up once Slifer appeared and decided to go down fighting. For while it's true that Egyptian Gods can only be affected by MAGIC cards for one turn, Slifer was revived with a TRAP card, so it seems like that limit would not affect the Sky Dragon.

That's just my thoughts after having seen it, anyway. (talk) 15:03, July 6, 2012 (UTC)just another fan.

I think yusei will win because he has alot of power full monster like stardust dragon, junk

archer and expecually goyo gardian because can gain monster and he is play by 5d's rules


She's 7-0, and therefore the only recurring character to never lose a dual. She defeats Joey 5 times at the beginning of the series at the high school (that's right, Tea Gardner is responsible for about half of Dualist Kingdom Semi-finalist Joey Wheeler's known losses), she defeats Mai with the power of friendship, and she takes out Crump in the virtual world. She never dueled against Yugi, but with the power of friendship, how could she lose.

  • Mai was still winning, but conceded that duel, so that Tea could have those star chips to give to Yugi.


i say i beat them all my zombies are dang near unstoppable Lets see them get out five monsters on their first turn

it would never be jaden,his deck is shocking compared to yugi's or yusei's. I would have to say yusei though, sure all of them have luck but yusei shows more skill, but then again he uses synchro's which to be honest are better than all cards than the other 2 use, if yusei didnt have his synchros it would be yugi to win.

yugi would win... not with his deck at battle, but with the deck he duelled against yugi. for those of you who don't know, I mean the battle where the pharaoh would go away if Yugi moto wins. jaden yuki is just a big noob with his weak elemental heroes, but when the heroes combine they are hard to beat —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) 14:33, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

yugi man?

whats wrong with you people, atems' the pharaoh

THE KING OF FREAKING GAMES!, common yugi is just tight, hes so cool and honest yet bold. little yugi is cool too, but atem is the man. Jaden? knock off. yusei?(who?) plus, atem is cool enough to have MIND CRUSH!. shadow realm games. should i go on? yes. anyone thats seen the anime knows how cool he is.

Yugi is the Pharaoh (Not anymore after final episode), Jaden is a reincarnation of the Supreme King+Yubel (Yet it hardly matters), And Yusei is a Signer-at-birth (Different from Crow, who just got it for no good reason.) Yusei was also helped by a God-like futuristic figure. Oracle Fefe 21:14, June 6, 2010 (UTC) yes dos mater jadne cna ebat yugi shwo that bea tyugi 10 tiems over with jaden deck iv not lost over 4 years

Okay, we all know yusei has shooting star and a ton of other good stuff, but his deck has no reacurring type of card, it's all J-random. jadens not even in hight school yet, so probably not him. it would probably be yugi because he got the knowledge of a freaking pharaoh, and he had the most seasons, meaning he had most expirience. so probably yugi. but if all the characters were included, lester would win. go SKIEL MEKLORDS ROCK!!

  • I say Yugi will win, He runs Gadgets!!!! and we all know gadgets are awsome!!! And knowing his luck it wouldn't be surprising for him to win. I wonder if he would run royal oppression...That would screw over both Jaden and Yusei so much lol. Ok hmms...I summon Yubel..I pay! >< ok...I summon STARDUST...Pay!. Win! lol (Also I am going off of if they actually HAD a legit duel with 8k LP, and if their deck types were as powerful as possible in the real game. I would say...Yugi wins, with Gadgets.)--Takuma. 01:45, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
  • PLEASE, Atem is the king of games, he controls every monster and if I'm not making a mistake now, Atem MADE the cards 3000 or 5000 years ago in Egypt. He maybe has lost his memory, but he still knows the feelings and all that stuff. Not only that makes Atem invincible, he believes in The Heart Of The Cards, damn it! Plus he can feel wich card is wich (just as he did when he duelled with Yugi, the Ceremonial Battle) he can draw any card at any time, for Gods sake! So, deal with it you cursed Yusei and Jaden lovers, Yugi owns ya all and there is noooooothing you can do about it-a... --Dark-Magician 15:42, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I dunno. Personally I think that anyone who ACTUALLY RUNS a card like Ragnarok, not to mention using it against a monster that it really doesn't affect is just asking to DIE (though I'll admit that Yami's Catapult Turtle Flying Castle Gambit is pretty awesome). I'd vote Yusei, as Stardust rocks, and his deck is actually pretty decent. As to the whole luck thing, that really applies to all three main characters. 12:25, 3 August 2009 (UTC)


I vote for him because out of all of them, he is the only one that isn't too angsty and isn't too much of a happy go lucky 'tard' that I get tired of his personality after a number of episodes. Not to mention in this series the female miss Aki Izayoi actually has most if not all of her cards coming out instead of just some like with poor Asuka who was sooo demoted to being a third party character.

Out of the yugi, yuki and yusei things.. It goes least liked to most liked. The only thing I hate is that all of them eventually move into the 'dueling to save the world' bit and stay there.. for-ev-er! Not to mention all three of the main characters used warriors to an extent, more so yuki and yusei then yugi who was more mish-mash. Oh and also I don't like yugi because he depended on his 'partner' too much in the whole series and no one ever really seemed to notice the things like height growth and attitude changing.. and a sudden drop in tone of voice but blah it's fantasy so whatever. There's my vote.

I'm going to have to go with Yugi on this one. As much as I detest yugi he has the magical item that turns him into a beast of a deulist who is undefeatable unless he chooses to loose. The only time I even remember Yugi losing was to kaiba and that was due to the suicide factor. If I remember correctly little yugi had to throw a b!@# fit to convicnce Atem to surrender.

Peronsally you put all these duelists in a room with a sword a pistol, a spear, and a banana and Kaiba's going to walk out to that room holding a blood stained banana. >.>

I would say Yusei, because of synchros, without them it would be Yugi Muto. If any character could be chosen i would say Akiza Izinski, purely because of Black Rose Dragon and she duels in such an angry way if she lost she would kill you sort of thing lol.

Doz Bate 20:54, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

if you could pick anyone i would pick aster phoenix because of his semi-undefetableness(he only loses to jaden) and his destiny heroes


they are all awesome but i just say jaden because he's my favorite.

Has to be Yusei

He defends against attacks like no other, and then swarms to overpower his opponent. You also have to look at the aces. Stardust is better than Neos and Dark Magician. And with others that have big effects plus this new Savior Star Dragon card. Jaden would lose in the first few turns because he doesn't play defense well, and Yugi would lose because he doesn't have enough fire power. Yugi could summon one or two strong monsters, but to keep them coming to match Yusei, he can't come close. Yusei in 8 turns. Messengerofthedark 03:52, 20 April 2009 (UTC)Messengerofthedark

Noooooo, yusei rides a bright red motorcycle and plays only one trap card that blocks an attack, scrap iron scarecrow, or as i say, crap iron scarecrow. yusei has no strategy or a reacuring type of card. jaden even (and jaden freaking sucks) could beat yusei in 3 turns most likely! YUGIMAN** 6:54 PM 9/16/2011

Yuki Judai

My choice woud have to be Jaden.He has insane combos to pull off.Miracle Flipper with Hero Blast.Convert Contact, Cocoon Party, Contact, then Space Gift.Not to mention the tons of De-fusion combos he has with his fusions.He has Yubel as well which can pull off a win easy with Neos for Wiseman.All Yugi does is blatantly cheat of just pulls his luck cards out of nowhere.I liked Yugi in the beginnig, but then he just started to cheat too much.He just so happened to have all his best cards at once in the first turn.Yusei is pretty good though.His deck mostly bridges his cards so he can get them out.Like Junk Synchron then Speed Warrior for Junk Warrior then Nitro Synchron for Nitro Warrior.SO in the end it will probably come down to Jaden and Yusei

  • Funny how you only accuse Yugi of cheating, when the other two are just as guilty. Infact, Bastion was probably the only duelist not reliant on topdraws. And Judai? Too many situational cards. Same goes somewhat for Yusei. --Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)


Jaden has skill and this 5Ds guy is the same but Yami Yugi would stategize more profound and ahead of time he knew his opponets moves and equal exchanged blow for blow. Yugi used more combos and always had more than a back up plan to his advantage. Jaden and This new guy is ok but yugi is more than capeable of mopping the florr with them both with or without god cards. Hes proven this to us on more than one occations actually defeating the god cards when niether of those slobs has been able to knock them down. Anyone else defeat a god card?....nope sure not.

Yeah, you tell 'em. Yugi is really good at strategy and people shouldn't claim he's a cheater because even though Atem was in control during most of the duels Yugi also won his share and he proved he was a great duelist at the Ceremony duel at the end of the series. Anybody remember that? If it cam down to it I think Yugi would win and Jaden would come in second. Yusei... hes good but he also didn't save the world at least three times.


With Yubel on him he will be un-defeatable, if he is only going to use the Evil Hero Monster cards, one of the most Powerful Monsters when they are just successfully summoned. With Jaden's Rainbow Neos, with high attack points and can just return monsters on the field back to the deck, poor Synchro Monsters. With Yugi using the god cards which are really illegal, he must not use that. Jaden will probably win.

  • The Egyptian gods were only used by Atem, and weren't illegal in the anime/manga.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

dont start predicting yet

just wait for this duel to air and then we will see who wins Sartorias 09:47, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

yugi GOD CARDS if youlot forgot.

listen to me carefuly, yugi would beat jaden and yusei because yugi is the original yugioh hero, he is the KING of games, he has 3 gods, he saved the world from the shadows twice, he beat kaiba, pegasus, marick, 3 gods, seal of orichalchos, leviathan, zork, exodia, reshef, bakura, yusei and jaden can not serpass him

Wrong, it was Atem who do all duels, Yugi had only like 1-2 duels, once for Rebecca (to deal with Blue-Eyes White Dragon card) and once again against his partner (end). But all other are by Atem, as of his look. So I am sorry, you lost. --FredCat100 20:16, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
    • What about the Ceremonial Duel, where Yugi beat Atem, with weaker cards to boot?--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)


If they were using hteir decks it would be Yugi but Yusei has the most skill. Even if yugi could use syncros in a different deck yusei would stil win

  • Doubtful. There hasn't been a better played duel than Yugi in the Ceremonial Duel.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

If you ask me (which nobody did but I'm going to spit it out anyway) synchro summoning isn't all that different from polermorization. They both pretty much cause the same thing only one needs a specific card (polymerization) and the other needs a certain type of monster (synchro summoning).

10th Anniversary Video

Well, when they release the 10th Anniversary Video that will feature the 3 Dueling, that will be when we find out who would win between the 3~MEOW~ Might of the BIRD Empire~~ 05:05, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Definitely Yugi

Come on guys. If Yugi is the King of Games, what would we call Jaden or Yusei? The Grandmaster of Game Emperor... Thing! No but in all seriousness, Yugi. He tends to build his decks with lots of balance. I'm also sure that if he built a deck with the new cards that have come out, he would have some amazing super Deus ex Machina deck that allows him to trump everyone else. He also has the God Monsters, and Black Luster Soldier Messenger of Creation, several of the more broken cards in the game. He also plays a lot of cards that give him more special summon and draw power. I think the only way Yusei could top him is that Yusei specializes in Turbo Duels, and Yugi would have to get the hang of it before hand. But in any case, I've gone on brown nosing Yugi long enough. xD--Overlordzorc 06:52, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

dont fight it

are you a fortune tellers like sartorius because u know anything cant be predicted as jaden said when he duels sartorius so when the duel air watch it and then you will learn who has won got that Sartorias 07:25, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

None of them, yugi would get blown up yubel,yugi would blow up yusei with Slifer,jaden would get blown up by savior star dragon, the end.--Airbellum 07:43, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Lol is that a joke , Yugi would win with no questions asked. -Arcangel- 22:46, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Get your facts straight the wiiner would be fucking luna!!!!

I must question your statement because first you curse and then you name a kid that's, like, ten! lol

Anyone but Yugi

Yugi's Battle City deck is impossible to actually win with and only won duels because his opponents were also using decks that are impossible to win with. As for Jaden and Yusei, if Jaden was using either his Season 1 deck or his Season 2 deck, he might stand a tough fight against Yusei. I don't know enough about Yusei to give a proper opinion, but I'll say this: Yugi loses in 3rd place, and then Yusei edges ahead of Jaden to win a struggle. By the way, even in the Doma arc, Yugi's deck was impossible (too many cards, all don't connect together). --WeezleBeezle 17:40, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree on that Yugi's deck wouldn't work in real life. I'd like to see Konami make 100% accurate decks of all three of them, actually shuffle, have three random guys play a duel using those decks, record what happens in that duel, and use it for an anime special (and yes, I'm aware of the announced 10th Anniversary thingie). Wouldn't that be interesting? An actual random duel that wasn't scripted. -- 23:49, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
I actually agree on this one. Yugi couldn't win. His deck is virtually mashed up with monsters that have no synergy. It's basically a bunch of Spellcaster, Warriors, Fiends, Beasts, Fairies and what-not. It has virtually only one copy of each card. Well, considering Yugi's random head... and deck, he'd only have one of each card. As for Yusei and Jaden... they're much more believable when winning. Why? Well... if you run an Elemental Hero deck, you should be at least aware that you'd be needing more than one freaking copy of Polymerization as well as three copies of each Elemental hero monster. And... for his Neos, Neo-Spacian and Yubel decks... there are plenty of ways to Special Summon a monster from the hand or deck. Yusei's deck is pretty much... okay by far. I don't see anything people would be b*tching about it not being able to win normally. However, I would like to note that, even in the Yu-Gi-Oh video games where all three of them are laughably weak and predictable in terms of startegy, Yugi goes down faster than Yusei and Jaden. Seriously. Even my Billy Decks have easily beaten Yugi's deck. Billy Decks, mind you. And they don't have any splashable cards in them at all. Yusei and Jaden did put up one heck of a fight though when I used the same Billy Decks against them. (P. S. In real life, there is no way Yugi's deck could win and what-not. Heart of the cards my butt. Luck is the only way. ;P) -- S.S. 3:29 January 19, 2010
But! Yugi was from the era when the franchise only started to become about the card game. And back then characters had cards that represented different things about them. Infact, few characters had consistent archetypes. GX and 5Ds were different in that they were built around Yu-Gi-Oh!! as a card game franchise from the get go. And even there, Jaden, for instance, uses too many situational cards.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Of course you could easily beat the main protagonists' decks in the video games! Because in the video games they don't have the writers rig it so that Yugi, Yusei, and Jaden always win. People! It's all about the writers, those three boys are literally made to win.

Think again !

I think YuGi will own the duel because he's not only calm but also quick response. Besides, he always has some backup plan for any circumstance ... And someone said that the deck he used is not balance. Of course it's not balance but the point is that he know his deck and the way to use it !

The truth is in each of their own show they would be the best. If they dueled in YuGiOh (original) Yugi wins, in 5d Yusei would win, in gx Jaden would win becaue the show obviously cheats for the heroe. However if yugi had the egyptian gods he would win, when I say yugi I mean the big one and the small one when they are one persone since yugi is the reincarnation of atem aka pharaoh aka yugioh they are the same personne. Plus yusei and jaden are just following in yugi's footsteps since he was THE ORIGINAL. Plus remember the show is named after YUGI whether it's YUGIoh gx or YUGIoh 5d Yugi does not depend on atem they are the same personne from a difent time and he can controle the draw. But seriously the show cheats for all three. And by the way Kaiba beats Zane, White Dragon beats Cyber Dragon.

I would coose Yusei, but... didn't he add a card to his deck in the middle of a duel?

For that question, there was only 1 card had been added, it's Majestic Dragon. Only twice by mental. --FredCat100 20:25, February 15, 2010 (UTC)


i dont know about yusei but yugioh killed jaden at the end of yugioh GX, they may not have showed it because jaden cried to alot when he lost thats why yugi should never work with loser, by the way the joke is from yugioh the abridged series. jaden did not cry or lose it end in the draw the make said so.

Either way YUGI WOULD WIN!!!!!!!!!!!! He's the king of games. And he has the millennium item so he would win. AND even if he didn't, his grampa owns a card shop he could just get more pieces of Exodia. AND with his "lucksackiness" he would be able to pull it off in like two draws.


Yugi Would Win

No one seems to remember that yugi was dueling at the start with only 4000 LP at the start. Heart of the Cards with Millennium Items not a force to be messed with! We all know how the Yugi vs. Jaden duel went so if by some way Jaden beats Yusei he will still lose but Yusei has more skill then Jaden so Jaden will lose first by a land slide but the Yugi Yusei duel will be a closer match, but Yugi will come out on top as long as he has the Heart of the Cards on his side along with God Cards. Also if they went to the shadow relm only Yugi would survive to walk away without having to duel. Drkylec

People Wake Up!

Jaden is a noob. So, in my opinion, Yusei will get a draw while dueling Yugi because of Yusei's Synchrons, and Yugi because of his almost never loss.

I like what that one guy said back there. if someone took there decks in real life, shuffled them, and gave them to 3 random guys with the same skill level, jadens deck would probably top because it has a REACURING THEME *GASP*!

Yeah, has anybody ever actually gotten all the cards for any one of the three main protagonists' decks because, really, I don't think any of them has a set deck. I think half the time the writers just add new cards on to make Yugi, Yusei, and Jaden win the duels. By the way: why do half the people on this page think Jaden is a noob. What? Can't a guy actually enjoy a CHILDREN'S CARD GAME?! (reference to Yu-Gi-Oh abridged series for all you little youtubers out there)

Yugi will

Yugi is the King of Games. If he loses, this will be bad for the first (and only interesting) Yu-Gi-Oh! series/manga. Then, Yugi has the three Egyptian Gods, he is invincible. 'Cause if Yugi must duel one (or both) of them, it will be Yami Yugi/Atem that will face or show himself a the end to achieve his opponent, beacause Yugi can't exist on screen without Yami/Atem (see the last GX Episode). So Yugi will beat all his opponents (confirmation in the next OAV with the 3 heroes). YAMIMILLENIUMMON PROG. - ME MAILER 15:52, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

The 3 gods can be beaten. Yugi's done it, using some crazy Magnet Force shit. But seriously, in a real duel, Yusei's deck and dueling skills are the best. Plus, his ace monster is the only really good one of them all, even though it doesn't have the same kind of support that Neos and Dark Magician have accumulated.

The Ceremonial Duel was the best played duel ever. Let's see Yusei play that well, then we'll talk.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
Yusei's Aces are Stardust, Savior Star, and maybe Stardust/Assault, but if you combine those, you're unbeatable.--Hydronic 17:02, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree with Azul120


If Jaden use his 1st season Deck he would have won.(In real life A Neos Deck is almost rubbish)so If he uses this deck Yami 'll win for sure


o boohoo jaden is too happy and not serious enough, lets say hes a noob!

it would be a draw like the last duel in gx

  • I think that little Yugi would come out as a winner, did you see the last episode of yugioh.

yugi will win you know king of games?--Scott 08 10:23, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

  • Of course it will be a draw because
  • one there to evenly matched jaydens to lucky and always draws and thinks pro when hes about to lose, yusai has great cards in tough spots and he knows how to use them while yugi is a pro stratigist. yugi will attack yusai then yusai will counter and send it to jayden then jayden will send it to yugi then he will send it back to yusai then he will play a card to evive a monster and send it back to jayden then jayden will use a card to destroy all there monsters and deal damage to there life points the same as there monsters then draw

  • two the producers wouldnt want yu to find out who is the most pro so they could build up the temptation as shown so they would end it in a draw

yeah, I mean look at the duel between Yugi and Jaden. If I recall correctly there was no set winner (although I think it was implied that Yugi won, but still)


  • In real life it would probably be Yusei, but in the anime the others always get the luck. By the way,Would someone who knows the answer to this question please reply. When is Abe the Monkey Man's deck/cards shown? I've been re-watching the Grand Championship episodes over and over but I can't spot his cards. Perhaps they're shown very vaguely so I'm missing them? Anyway, please reply someone! (Robbiejennings 10:42, September 2, 2009 (UTC))
    • It's not always luck. The last turn topdeck is required because the antagonist is written into topdecking first.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

depend upon the situation...

real life?still,i go with jaden..his the best..yussie?will waste so much monsters in the chance of the way,we should take out banned cards so yugi will not win..jaden deck the elemental dead draw..gotcha

  • Yeah, Bubble Blaster, Spark Blaster, Feather Shot, not dead draws, hahaha. Normal Yugi didn't use the gods, don't forget.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)


Let's see:

yugi: moronic THREE tribute god cards (countless cards to stop god summoning btw) , lots of turn to put it off, themeless salad deck( unless he uses the pure magician) , always wins by luck, banned cards still allowed? Has useless friends who always counts on him to save them Prototype for a reason

  • Wrong-o. Atem used the gods, not Yugi. Said deck was a result of most characters not having archetypes at the time because the card game was now. His wins by luck are because the writing dictates it by way of his opponent doing it first in order to make things more dramatic.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

judai: fast kill, otk possible, evil heroes rules, the impossible destiny draw bs,but hand empties too fast, low firepower, get rid of first fusion and he's gone Beta, close but not there yet

yusei: his defense is really godlike, how many reversal otks already? no kuriboh, synchro fusion( accel sychro?), cool biker, insane creature advantage in one turn, and since series still running , hasn't reached his limits yet.

Go make a guess

  • Judai doesn't use Evil Heroes... that's Haou. And since when do being a "cool biker" or having "useless friends" have ANYTHING to do with a duel? Besides, little Yugi doesn't use the god cards. --Bluedog (Talk) 02:08, September 6, 2009 (UTC)
Dude, Yugi has used God cards on more than one occasion... and it's freaking ridiculous that he gets to summon them every time... without any proper support. As for Jaden/Judai, he can (TAKE NOTE that it's "can" not "does") fuse his Elemental Heroes into Evil Heroes. Just add Dark Calling or Dark Fusion. As for the "useless friends" and "cool biker"... I have entirely no idea. But Yugi's deck seems to be the most out-of-place and useless by far. ;P 08:08, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
Well in Yugi's era duel monsters was just becoming big so they didn't really have specific different kinds of decks like junk decks (yusei) and elemental hero decks (jaden), back then what people had were more life preferences, one kid had a dragon deck because he liked dragons, joey had a deck based almost entirely on luck, even Yugi kind of had a mix between knights and magicians for the most part, so you can't blame him for having a million different types of monsters. Oh and by the way how can his deck be useless when hes saved the world like 4 or 5 times with it and beaten Atem with it?! (talk) 19:17, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

Yugi Focuses on speed summoning with his knights and magnet warriors to create 3 tributes. The knights actually work better in the anime since they summon jacks knight as long as the 2 others hit the field someway or another unlike the real ones where queen has to be out first and king must be normal summoned--DarkMagicRagnarok (talkcontribs) 04:53, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

There's actually gonna be a movie about this!

Kinda, I think...


Are you obsessed with sex or are you just a Yu-Gi-Oh! hater?

i know who would win

defintly jaden because he has more luk than the others

bold => bold


what lies RAWR

Smart money's on Yugi, after all he does have the God cards doesn't he? Although Savior Star Dragon can dismantal 2 out of 3 of them...--Azure Knight-Zeo 04:32, September 25, 2009 (UTC)

So there, that's proof that there are ways to destroy the god cards. Don't get me wrong though I still think Yugi would win


We will find out in the upcoming movie!!!!!! :P


Lol. The farao would win. 3 god cards, heart of the cards and MIND CRUSH (Thats one of the abridged series joke XD)

Jaden is too relaxing to win.

Yusei is just not using any good cards XD.

it'd be between Yugi and Yusei.

Jaden already faced Yugi, and I can tell you right know he lost since it was Neos versus Slifer. Yugi would probably be my vote for this, but Yusei has some skill (with proof being that he wins using cards that people throw away, since he's a satellite). I also think that if Yusei plays Majestic Star Dragon, he might have a chance.

==i say the winner will be yugi because i think that yusei can't defeat jaden because of yubel spirit and the supreme king jaden and jdaden already dueled yugi and he lost so i see that yugi is the winner but in my real life i want jaden to win

Big deal. So what if Jaden has Yubel. Ohh I got an emo psycho spirit helping me win. Jaden may have luck, but Yusei has more skill than Jaden does. Yugi has both though so I know he would win.

The proof of Jaden's luck is during his duel against Yugi, his card trooper sent 3 cards to the grave, and 2 of them have a good effect in the grave Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 21:03, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Why do you people think Jaden relies on luck, look at Yusei - hes the one always banking on his deck! If it came down to it I'd say Yugi wins and then Jaden comes in second. (hey, i just realized thats the order the Yu-Gi-Oh! series goes in! cool. maybe I think that's how the duel would turn out because each series gets shorter so you don't get to see as much of their dueling skills, but I stand by my answer!)

Yusei automatically consider the winner since both Yugi and Jaden didn't have their own D-Wheel to compete on Riding Duel... Lanspearsaber 16:37, December 20, 2009 (UTC)NoobYugiohPlayer

What does riding on motorcycles have to do with who would win or not? You think just because Yusei goes in a circle the entire duel it'll make him win?!

Jaden's Yubel card and Card Trooper, Necro Gardna, Elemental hero Divine Neos probably mean he'd win. Although Yugi has Swift Gaia... 18:43, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

Just because Jaden has uber cards doesn't mean he'd win. Yugi and Yusei have both proven that it doesn't matter if you have uber cards cause any card can be defeated. Jaden's good, but most of his good game play comes from his luck, and that only gets you so far. Yugi would win because he has the skill and just the right amount of luck.

GoldenSandslash15's Opinion

If the writers were to make this duel, they would cause Jaden/Judai to lose. This is because they want either Yugi to win (to show that the original is still remembered) or Yusei (to promote the "new" show). Between Yugi and Yusei, it would have to be Yugi. The viewers would like that best.

However, ignoring the writers, and if it was simply "characters do what they do on their own," it would be Yusei. Yugi's deck is unplayable by today's standards. His key cards, Dark Magician and Kuriboh, are worthless. A 2500 ATK card can easily be found in a 1-tribute card (probably with a decent effect), and if not for the support cards, Dark Magician would NEVER be played in real life. Kuriboh is just a cutesy card. I can't believe it actually saved Yugi in his duel against Kaiba in the Battle City Finals. Jaden/Judai has WAY too many cards in his deck to ever topdeck without the writers' help. Yusei is still good though, particularly in Turbo Duels.

  • Yugi's Kuriboh move worked because it was written that way in the manga, where a lot of the real life rules, regardless of player, don't apply.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Finally, we cannot ignore other characters that are strong as well: (Joey/Jyonochi, Kaiba, Zane/Ryo, Chazz/Manaoujme, Jesse/Johan, Jack, Akiza). I think that they (especially Zane/Ryo) are stronger than the main characters of their respective series, ignoring the writers' help.

  • You're kidding on at least a couple of them. Zane/Ryo also relies on topdecks to achieve the wins he does, Kaiba relies on beatstick power even if he is second best, Jack is too much of a Leeroy Jenkins, and Joey isn't as strong as Yugi either. Yugi, btw, crushed a stronger deck using weaker cards. That takes strategy.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Now, we know that Yugi and Jaden/Judai dueled at the end of GX, and Yugi won (although the duel was interrupted), so Jaden/Judai will definitely lose this duel. (Jaden/Judai's duel with Dimitri doesn't count, as "no amount of studying you can do will allow you to use somebody else's cards as well as they can." -Zane Truesdale/Kaiser Ryo

Similarly Judai/Jaden vs. Kaibaman doesn't count.

Lastly, we will see the protagonists debut together in the new 10th anniversary film. Although they probably won't duel each other, we can better analyze a duel involving all of them once we actually see the movie.

I don't know how much this info is worth. It's either $0.01 or it's $0.02.

Either it's a penny for my thoughts, or it's just me putting in my two cents.

(Cheesy, I know.)


--GoldenSandslash15 04:29, December 21, 2009 (UTC)


In real life, Yusei would win the duel but if Yugi lost, it would be a bad publicity for the viewers.... I think it would be a draw or somehow Yugi won but not shown just like the epilogue of Yugioh GX. Blackwing Guy 04:53, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

On Deck Structure alone, Jaden/Judai would have the largest advantage, since his cards build on each other moreso than the others. Should each of the characters have access to all of their cards from both the manga's and Anime's, Jaden has the clearest advantage. Yusei would possibly come in second, since his junk deck has some semblance of strategy too. I've Built various versions of Yugi's/Atem's Decks, and they dont stand a snowball's chance in hell against either of the other two, the "King of Games" has no REAL strategy to his deck.

Shadowfox337 07:41, January 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • Yugi came before the era of characters having archetypes. Judai, who doesn't have that excuse, uses too many situational cards to have a good build.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, a lot of new cards are created since the beginning of Yu-Gi-Oh and Yusei can use the most of them.(except the bans). Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 21:09, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

yusei's deck will win because its the fastest among the three decks, he can summon a 2500atk stardust in 1 turn and the two others, maybe jaden can outpower stardust with his fusion monsters and yugi's deck in real life is a great bunch of underpowered cards and i can forgive that because he is the pioneer but in today's playing, yusei's deck will win, jaden, maybe but never for yugi's deck unless he unleashes his forbidden cards! but for animewise , YUGI should win or else the creators of the movie will screw up big time! dude he's the King of Games, and the game is named Yugi-Oh, hence his name.

My Two Cents

Even though i don't particularly like Yugi and i do agree Kaiba would leave with a blood stained banana; i would have to say Yugi would win because when you factor in the "King of Games" into determining what his realworld deck would be it; i gotta say it would be awesome. Yusei would have a chance and between the two of them (Yugi & Yusei) it would be a hell of a fight to the end. BTW Jaden loses in 2 turns tops DaywalkerAA 12:21, January 19, 2010 (UTC)

It depends, but...

For me I think it's Yusei, not because of his skill because he can compromise by using various decks whether mishmash or useless... I'm not bias, I have watched the 3 seasons, and played the games actually, currently playing 5d's and Gx on psp... I don't have much experience but, since it was a game, the draws can either be bad or good...(even with destiny draw it's still bad T-T)or in short it was totally shuffled...

Yusei- definitely best defense and fast summoning due to synchros Jaden- bad defense, good offense with fusion monsters and other effects... Yugi- he's good... but I don't know if it's lucky draws or what but yeah it's true too much luck, I don't know what his deck concentrates on is it on kuriboh's, dark magicians, magnet warriors etc... whatever... but also has good defense with his kuriboh's and spellbinding, magical harts etc trap cards, his spells are also cool, like change of heart etc etc...

I played Yusei, from weakest to strongest deck, and damn his strongest was definitely strongest.... it's like at first you think you're winning then he makes a comeback when least expected(remember deck shuffled no writers to totally make him win or what!!)...(same with his weakest) I was like hurray!.... dammit! especially with that stupid scarecrow thing ugh!!! plus with jaden's and yugi's deck, since they don't synchro summon they'll have a hard time since you can just summon one monster at a time, and that includes tributing and etc unless you discard your strongest card and draw monster reborn... (except special summon cards) beat him from time to time, but it took a lot of defending and stalling =.= till the good draw (see everyone depends on luck and yugi is not exempted...) although you can wipe Yusei out, as long as you can destroy his monsters before he can even synchro summon since his cards are weak, not all...but since he specializes in synchros...and destroy his traps before he can even use it!!! >.< oh yeah before I forget, there was one time, in one term he actually filled up the field with his monsters due to effects to special summoning and of course no use of monster reborn there and synchro summoned twice or thrice o.o man it would be terribly hard to turn the tables if it was turbo and nitro warrior since their effects are cool.(and experienced that and yes it was hard go mirror force!! :D)

Jaden? as I said his defense was flunky!! I tag dueled with him, and the only way to beat him in a few turns is, wipe him out and overpower him fast... and don't make him summon anything lol! make it hard!! which is true... because our opponents just beat his heroes and spacians with various effects and we're like defenseless >.< and since his deck depends on fusion monsters, it was hard, until he finally had a good draw and was able to fusion summon -.-... it wasn't really bad, it's just hard to defend with him >.<. and can't you believe alexis defeated us T-T... well she is also strong -.-... even against truesdale...

Yugi, I have to agree with the mish mash thing, since I really can't find what his deck concentrates on... is it dark magician, or whatever... and yes I can agree to other users that there are monsters that are more powerful than dark magician with cool effects... maybe if he concentrates more on enhancing his dark magician maybe he might win... I mean, as I said not bias, it's his deck is the problem.-.-...(haven't and never had fought with yugi since I don't know a game where I can actually tag duel or just battle him in whatever unit...if someone knows do tell me via here...) he just needs to concentrate on his dark magician!! >.<

and that's the way I can conclude who's and who's not strong, since the decks were shuffled, it was definitely shuffled because one time, yusei and jaden only had a hand filled with effing spells and no monsters =.= totally bad draw rar... and good thing yusei has that scarecrow thing -.-....

so yes, I go for yusei for his wicked cool defense and fast summoning followed by yugi... as long as he edits his deck... plus his lucky anyways, even if he doesn't edit his deck -.-... (agrees to another user, saying that yugi losing would be bad publicity)... and jaden last, its not that I don't like him as I said Jaden has fire power, as long he's able to fusion summon, or get his heroes together, I actually like his hero spell cards... wicked effects actually and like his deck since it's a deck that actually concentrates on something, but, I don't know... maybe they're actually equal too... if they draw good ones, but yusei actually has strategy to follow that up, it's like even if his deck is shuffled to the max, even if he got bad draws, he's able to cover it up (seen that as I duel him or duel with him even if it's a computer) and the cards on his deck connects same with jaden... another fact jaden was beaten by yugi in the show, so assuming it's definitely a fight between yugi and yusei...

but even if I pick yusei, I can say it depends since they're all strong with their own weaknesses but with cool strategies to back it up hands down but it also depends on the draw plus its just my opinion based on observing their decks and gameplay, whether reality or the anime.... I mean all duelists depends on that, I depend too much on draw especially when I'll almost lose :p so there I pick yusei due to his card connection, chains, cool defense, card combos etc...

but I'm also still yugi's fan though -.- .....jz-randomewateruser-do0147

Be realistic. Its in the rulings...

To be true and honest, yusei will definitely win. I'm not biased or anything but a new gen deck is better than the first edition deck.

Yugi: Holy Ra! I'm so TCG.
Jaden: I could OTK you with just one card! yeah!
Yusei: My motorcycle gives me strength!(from YGOTAS)

Ok even if they duel, they'll be darned confused about the cards, rulings and stuff...

Yusei: I'll tune my monst...
Jaden: Oh, you're a guitarist?! rock on men!
Yusei: I mean I'll synchro summon. Arise Stardu...
Yugi: What in Anubis' name??? That's against the rules! Can you summon with that???
(Cue)(Kaiba: Screw the rules, I have money!)(from YGOTAS)
Yusei: What millenium are you? Dont you know this???
Jaden & Yugi: uhhhh...

--SilentHero26 09:34, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I pretty much agree with this. XD Sounds pretty real. I mean, that's what you get from making an ancient pharoah with an amnesia of some sort, a happy-go-lucky teenager and a calm, calculated punk. But... I don't think Jaden's deck would lose out to Yusei's deck. I mean, isn't that why Stratos got into the List anyway? 'Cuz it's too... well, splashable. As for Yusei, well... his deck is no pushover as is with Jaden's decks... whichever he'll be using. ;D Yugi, on the other hand, has a pretty much outdated deck with... absolute no strategy. Sorry, Atem's underlings. This ancient kiddo would have no luck in surviving the duels nowadays. =D 13:43, January 23, 2010 (UTC)
Unfair comparison.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

It is obvious that Yugi will win.

I am not talking about Atem I am talking about Yugi the true King of Games he is known for having a very balanced deck and unlike his counterpart he can control his emotion even in a bad position.

Even though I have yet to see Yugi use the god cards you can tell that by looking at his level deck/ machine deck that he is a little better than the pharoah.

As for 2nd place it will be Yusei Fudo with his millions of overpowering monsters Majestic Star Dragon, Stardust Dragon/ Assualt Mode, Stardust Dragon, Junk Warrior, Nitro Warrior, Turbo warrior exc. that he is going to be second and he isn't an emotion crazy like Jaden Yuki only when needs he shows how he feels.

Yusei Fudo has an very bad deck setup though it relies on Synchro too much Royal Oppression will put Yusei and Jaden to there knees. 3rd Jaden Yuki I don't hate the guy he does have a few good duels but he relies to much on Fusion his downfall but his doesn't always need to fuse he got some good cards like Bladedge, Neos, Yubel and a few more others but kill his fusing abilities and he is a goner.

Also one more thing there aces who will win Dark Magician, Elemental Hero Neos, or Stardust Dragon.

=P Dark Magician because of it has more support than Neos or Stardust.

It is true that DM has a lot of spells that support him, but Stardust can sychro for Shooting Star and Quasar, Majestic, fuse for Draco-Equest,... Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 21:17, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Secondly if you control the Gods Cards and have a pharoah in a keychain with unlimited dueling smarts that is like 2 vs 1 vs 1 so the answer to your who will win is Yugi Moto THE KING OF GAMES because of his abilities to have an equal deck and shuffle between fusion and tributing.

I would say Jaden would win. If and only if for one reason. He does in fact cheat. He has over 160 cards in his deck (more then 3 times the legal limit) and only one copy of each save polymerization and hero kid. (maybe a couple of others) Not only that but he can always draw EXACTLY which card he needs, when he needs it. Not to mention he has all the Yubel forms, and the Evil Heroes (which he probably wouldn't use, but he still has them.) So yeah Jaden would tottaly win ESPECIALLY if were talking about the manga, where he has access to the natural heroes such as earth, great tornado, and absolute zero. Yusei comes in second mostly because synchro spam screws poor yugi over big time.

personaly i think its pritty obvious thet Yusei would win think about it people he use's scnchro's Taylor ace

you guy notice all there ace have the same atk and def atk= 2500 and def=2000 and the ace monster are all the same level

No they aren't (at least level-wise). Stardust is level 8, Dark Magician and Neos are both 7 -Just another fan


i think that Yugi would win, but Jaden is definately better than Yusei, and just for some people, there was an episode in GX, where Jaden beat the Winged Dragon Of Ra :)

possibility of a tie

They're all pretty good duelists and any one of them is strong on their own but if they faced each other i think jaden would go down first, and yusei, and yugi would bring each others life points to zero at the same time. Soundeffex 00:04, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

they all suck

a real life deck (thats good) could easily beat any of there decks so wat does it matter?

Then you're a true hater of them. --FredCat100 00:45, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

My opinion

Well, you're all actually forgetting one thing with the movie out. If you look, Atem/Yami Yugi WHATEVER you wanna call em has some updated cards that were reasonable. I mean hey, a trap card that doubles a monster's ATK? That's actually a pretty good one shot attack. That's a VERY easy OTK right there if he combos that with Dark Paladin. And you gotta figure that depending on WHEN they duel while Yusei has a god-like defense, could it stand up to Yugi OR Judai if they updated THEIR decks with synchro monsters and better strategies? (Well, maybe not synchros for Judai's who knows but at least an updated strategy could do some good for him

Furthermore, like everyone's been saying Yugi and Judai almost ALWAYS pull godly luck draws. Yusei one the otherhand is full on all skill and I've seen enough to know that if he wanted to he could brutally own someone. Judai's got an amazing deck synergy though and his cards flow almost like water as does Yusei's. Yugi on the otherhand has a very strict "deck of glass" even as Kaiba himself says. Again according to Kaiba that if you know Yugi's strategy and you can break it off before he can pull it off, you can either totally throw him off for a split second or leave him totally open for the kill. Ruining one core piece of Yugi's deck can just totally mean the end for him and I think that's what everyone's getting at here. And yes, they have ZERO synergy. Yusei and Judai however can very easily switch into another strategy or have several other reliable monsters in case of such an incident.

That's just strategy though. I'd say there, Yusei and Judai tie, and Yugi dies. Now on power, yes Judai fans Judai totally wins there. Yes it's granted that Yugi has god cards but several Neos fusions can easily go over 4000 attack points and Judai I believe has a monster destruction spell card. Since Gods are affected by spells (YES they are go look it up if you don't believe me) he could take them out, as could Yusei. Yusei could have a shot in power but his cards are more focused on just defending before he totally destroys the opponent's strategy and goes in for the kill. Yugi would actually in my opinion be second in power if anything for some of his more powerful monsters and of course the Egyptian God Monsters.

With power and strategy aside, there comes the final element being just the opinion. So with these factors I say:

Really, just a flat out draw. Yusei has way to many defenses that could keep him going FOREVER, Judai's power could hold him out for a really long time, especially if he manages to call out Yubel or Neos Wiseman and Yugi well, he's just epically lucky like that. In the end the final result would be either Yugi or Judai would probably summon some godly monster of monstrous attack strength and just as it's about to nail someone Yusei pulls a defense card that most likely ends the duel in a tie, some other circumstance occurs that forces the duel to end (like perhaps the 3 rivals wanting a piece of the action) or they could be gay like they were at the end of GX and blank out the screen and just vaguely hint to us what happened.

I got that, but remember Yusei is from the future, while Yugi and Jaden are in present era. That which mean either Yugi/Jaden not have know about Synchro till Yusei pulled it out of his pretty ass. --FredCat100 04:15, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

Point taken. However, even then the two could update their decks. I still think it would end in a draw though cuz even the mightiest of defense walls must come down And luck would only get Judai so far and well, I think I've already explained Yugi's problems

  • You're kidding. Judai uses too many situational cards. Yugi at least has the excuse of coming from the pre-archetype decks, as does Kaiba, who relies on beatdown and having strong cards no one else has access to. And strategy? Rewatch the Ceremonial Duel. Better than anything Yusei has done so far, and certainly better than Judai.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)


Pharaoh is a God. If you remember his final duel with Yugi, he could actually Manipulate Fate to draw the cards he needed/wanted. It's not luck, and it's not "heart of the cards" (more like heart of the duelist anyway). So, obviously, he'd win hands down. Atemu, with his final deck, or his regular deck "updated" would be the winner.

Yugi's deck was built specifically to counter Atemu's deck, so that's why he won that time. But I think older Yugi, with an updated deck would stand a very high chance of winning against Yusei or Judai too.

Yusei's deck is just as much a mishmash of cards as Yugi's is, it's just a centralized strategy for syncro support His only adaptability comes from the various syncro monsters he can summon.

Judai's deck is the most adapatable out of them all, but the most reliant on luck (he has WAY too many cards in it, and it's loaded with single circumstance support cards). If luck was on his side, He'd come very close to defeating Yugi or Yusei, but if luck favored them all equally, he'd be the first to lose. (As much as I like Yubel, I have to say it, Judai's deck is the worst of them all) 13:46, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

I truly don't know. I've been watching the whole Yu-Gi-Oh! trilogy since I was 4, and since then, I've been rooting them all on. They are all great at dueling (duh, that's why they have their own series)and if they were dueling each other, it'd be epic. Truly, I don't think Judai/Jaden has much of a chance, so between Yugi and Yusei.

Different times, different rulings

Are we forgetting that the rules during Yugi's time were very sketchy. Remember, there was even no such thing as quick play spell cards. I can just imagine it now. Yugi goes "What do you mean I can't activate Monster Reborn during your turn?" and "How can you attack me with your fusion monster in the same turn that it was summoned, Jaden?"--Hide Head Turtle 15:56, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Yusei Must win

yusei muse win because he play inside 5d's rules . compare with jaden ,jaden win cause of

luck,in real life I think jaden can lose easlly.

Every character in the Anime and Manga wouldn't have a chanse against any player in thae reality. The only players that would have a small chanse is Andore, Crow and Kiryu (just because of their decks). Yusei plays a crap synchro deck, Jaden plays a forgotten archetype and Yugi play a random deck. Yugi and Yusei only win on luck, neither of them is good. The only thing I know about GX is think he is good at all that Jaden plays Neo-Spacians, but I dont. Btw, Crow missplays a lot against Bommer (I dont know the dubbed names, the dubbed versoin suck). If I had to pick any of them it would be Yusie, because he can syncho summon. Ancientgearking 16:23, April 21, 2010 (UTC)

  • Just no. Rewatch the Ceremonial Duel. No one has played better than Yugi did.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Yugi would win.

He has the Egyptian Gods and he believes in the heart of the cards. The Horror'Speak if you dare

It doesn't matter....much.

It depends. If the creator of Yugioh make all three of them duel each other, its pretty obvious that yugi would win. In real life it would end up in a tie. I think they are beatable if today's duelist in real life dueled them.


Lets all be honest here, the original is the best. And also as you guys say atem, I say yugi as he is the only character who can take on all three god cards in one go. Judai and yusei are cool in their own way but until they are staring down the major plot point for about four seasons straight and win, then I'll change my mind but for now, the little awsome that is Yugi Motou is who I'd pick. by the way, for those who think about deck synergy, lucky draws etc. do please remeber that this is an anime, it is ment for entertainment purposes only, you are right in saying that most characters only win by luck and little stratergy but it isn't ment to be serious and in a world ruled by a card game and friendship, I do find it surprising that the fans are dimanding logical deck construction. don't take this the wrong way, you are right, but do remeber the context that these characters and scenarios are in, this is a world where anything can happen and good draws do seem a bit tame after yami bakura sends people to hell it self. sorry for this text rant user:Jak Da Koopa 22, April, 2010

Don't know about who wins, but the final score would be:

After 1 loss: 1st: 2400, 2nd: 1700, 3rd: 0000

Final Result: 1st: 0100, 2nd/3rd: 0000

"How'd you arrive at those numbers?"

I guessed. Sabre Knight 05:07, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

yusei not lucky?

all of you say yusei has skill not luck but as you can see in episode 110 HE DRAWS 5 TUNERS IN A ROW isn't that luck--Arcanitejedi 12:49, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

Unless all of his tuners were clusterfucked (pardon my French) together, which can happen when half of the cards in his deck are tuners, I myself have built a Yusei deck with all cards one of each up to TSHD, except Power Frame and the deck really relies on what your starting hand is. 15:56, May 29, 2010 (UTC)



i think it would be yugi,, he faced more people , he won more opponents , we know more about him, he defeated the leader of arikalkos which was practically undefeated cause he did have a monster with infinite attack points and both of them where on 0 life points! i think its Yugi , and then he is the first yu-gi-oh character

Mind you yugi beat yami in the final episode so yugi can kick tail.


ok this is seriously a stupid question,, the creator would not make a winner, because : his companies economy will fall , if some one likes yugi and yugi loses would he want to by his cards ,,,, NO and then how would the creator feel like ,, its like asking a kinder garden teacher to announce her favourite student in public ,, first of all how would she start even thinking about that,, why her student is the best same goes here each individual has his own pluses , third sais its yusei other third sais iys yugi and final third sais its jaden , there is absoloutly no way can we ever figure this out , if we were to make/create/write down the plot of the episode where they fight each other what would we say?????

We say "Destiny Draw went down to 5 dollars!!" Yugioh DED 23:09, June 6, 2010 (UTC)Yugioh DED


Yusei ftw because he obviously has the most combos. Jaden's the coolest though. And Yami Yugi's classic, which I respect, but he doesn't come close with his dumbass useless Normal Monsters.

Yusei, hands down. While Judai and Yugi have luck, he's the only one with real skill. IronChain 15:47, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

  • Might as well put down the rest of the old duelists too. Geesh. Effect monsters were rare back then. And you forgot Yugi's Ceremonial Duel performance. That was not luck. That was real skill.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

What We Know

Yugi, yugi has the worst deck of the three and only wins because of the cheap god cards that almost never have the same effects N00B (yes i called the king of games a N00B duelist)

Yusei, i'm not to sure bout yusei but his deck is stupid and really he ONLY wins with luck

Jaden, Jaden Beat a GOD not a god card a GOD and he has a real deck not just random cards like yugi (and partially yusei)

Look im sorry to say but who ever posted this is an idiot, yusei has the best deck out of both of them by far, neo spacians are terrible, I'm not joking there actualy terrible and for you too say they are better than yusei deck is just silly. I mean most of them go back to the extra deck once summoned and their effects aren't even that good. We all know in a duel yusei or yugi would win with jaden being at the bottom all the time.

  • Not to mention Atemu played the gods, not Yugi, who by the way was the one to beat more than one god.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

First of all yugi deck is pure ass because most of his monster dont have effects and yusei is just pure ass him sefl because his cards effect are so dead on to what he need which i say is bull and luck.


I think that all of these duelists have a fair chance of winning.

Yugi's deck has some of the most essential yet powerful cards in the game (such as Mirror Force) which the other two respective decks lack since they are of a different focus. Yugi's old Dark Magician combo may be old, but it is NEVER to be underestimated. More and more combos became possible asthe long, original Yu-Gi-Oh! went on.

Jaden's Elemental Hero deck is amazing, though I must admit the the later-added Neo-Spacians are really, really bad. Nevertheless, Jaden can access and utilize several great ablities unique to several of his different Heroes. He also has many archetype-based support cards to help he get all the cards he needs. I must also mention that there are several Heroes that NEVER ACTUALLY APPEARED IN THE ANIME. I'd say that Jaden's deck, minus the neo-spacians and plus some more Heroes, would stand a very good and equal chance at winning a duel.

Yusei's Synchro Deck is amazing if used properly. It has great defense tactics and to protect the lower-level and lower-ATK Tuners required for Synchro Summoning. All of Yusei's Synchros are AWESOME. Yusei is definitely a competent player.

Yugi for one reason.

Its all Yugi because he can "MIND CRUSH" everyone if he wanted.

Still can't beat Kiaba at screwing the rules though. -- 08:18, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

Is this the longest discussion ever because this is like World War 2 or something jeez. Fallensilence 09:04, June 15, 2010 (UTC)Fallensilence

In all Realism, Its gotta be Yusei, Majestic Star Dragon would Eat Yubel for breakfast, (Nom), Meteor Stream and Stardust's Effect would handle the Gods, and Yusei, though he runs some cards that arent out, He's the only one who doesnt run any cards on the ban list, Yugi and Monster Reborn, Jaden and Mirage of Nightmare. Stealing Black Luster Soldier Envoy of the beginning or Neos Wisemans effect using Majestic Star Dragon would make it easy for Yusei. Jaden would be more useful if he ran evil heroes and Super Polymerisation (though I Swear Evil Heroes can only be summoned with Dark Fusion/Calling, so technically Jim should have beaten him) Yugi could manage if he got Slifer on the field before anyone else got something decent on the field. Jack atlas, at least now he's gone all Burning Soul with Scar-Red Nova Dragon would beat both Yugi and Jaden easy, though he really needs to Duel Yusei again between Accel synchro summons and Scar Red Nova, it would be a good match

Billy decks were never really that impressive though. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 02:20, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

As much as I hate to admit it...

Yusei. Only because has Synchros and the other two have fusions. Yusei would run all over them with his synchros or syncrho fusions. Not to mention that Yugi or Jaden have a single Synchro/coutner Synchro, I bet Yugi could implement Synchros into his Deck, but Jaden = Synchros little city? No Way! Drew-Gi-Oh! (talkcontribs) 16:28, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Well, they are introducing Fusions that use syncros so there might be a day with Elemental Hero Syncros but I highly doubt it--DarkMagicRagnarok (talkcontribs) 04:41, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

Thinking about it... =

I'm not sure. Yugi hasn't had a chace to update his deck, Jaden, with these new Elemental Hero fusions would do tons better. If you put Jaden and Yugioh in Yugi's time, Yugi would win (maybe) because of strategy and his heart of the cards. I would probably say Yugi, but with the new ban list, maybe not. (Dark Magician of Chaos rules!) Yugi would probably find a way o get past all the new startesgies Yugi is using. He beat Kaiba. The first time was luck, but come on, Kaiba. So I think Yugi. If he loses the first time, he'll just srategize a way to win. I've kind of changed my mind, but Yugi. Definetely him, if we get more Dark Magicians. Kwame120 (talkcontribs) 21:21, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Jaden uses the newest fusions in the Manga. As for Yugi and his strategy, it depends on whether you mean his anti-meta deck or the one he used after the ceremonial battle. His anti-meta deck wouldn't work, as the key cards aren't even real, but the other deck would do pretty well. If he included a tuner like Chaos-End Master or frequency magician, he might be able to beat Yusei outright. Jaden technicly didn't beat him when he dueled Dimitri, and the the ending to other one wasn't shown. Drew-Gi-Oh! (talkcontribs) 21:47, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Wait a second... The GX manga's still going? And everyone used was new in their time. Yusei Synchro's, Jaden Fusions, and Yugi...Yugi...introduced alot of stuff. Ritual's for one. So if they all updated their decks, I think Yugi, because he has great strategy. His deck's just, ewwy. Kwame120 (talkcontribs) 22:14, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

...... I seriously doubt it. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 16:38, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

Actually I think yugi would win he's just full of luck or yusei beacause of stardust dragon

Same here. You know anime characters these days. Full of luck and unexpected stuff. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 13:11, September 10, 2010 (UTC)


I say jaden because in the final duel between him and yugi spoiler alert! atem steps in and summons slifer the sky dragon or orisis whtever you want to call it and judai said go neos! 2500 to 5000 atk oviously jaden has something in mind and yusei in my opinion doesnt stand a chance his deck is all about summoning stardust a 2500 attack monster when tht thing is gone hes through and jaden can summon god neos yah yusei loses and they all have the luck of the draw i was watching an episode of 5ds i belive 65 and he hopes his deck comes through for him and it denies him and giv es sonic chick it was hilarious and then gets rid of speed counters to draw the good cards and again the stardust summon blah blah blah sorry he sucks and jaden/judai powers up alot againsit oppenets same with yugi so yah jaden wins

Not really. Yusei has pretty ok traps and plus he has pretty ok strategies with his synchros and a really good defense plan to back him up. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 23:35, September 15, 2010 (UTC) even still ok isnt good enough

Base on their ORGINAL Deck, Yusei would win, then jaden, then yugi. Base on strategy, will to win, option to pick the up-to- date cards(same rules for all), Yugi is the best king of games , then Yusei, and Jaden. Yugi figure out how to beat 3 god card in one turn. Yusei always win with 100 or less life points because he plans the entire match. Jaden has bad hand advantage, but powerful monsters combo with grave yard summon.

In the future yugi will build a perfect deck because they keep upgrading his monster.

I think a kitteh with a snippa rifle would win


I would have to go with Yugi for this one. You have to remember that in our world, the cards play differently and some even have different effects so in the anime, Yugi's cards are actually much stronger not to mention he had Black Luster Soldier, Envoy of Beginning and Dark Magician of Chaos in his deck when it was on exhibit in GX. As the Game evolved, so did Yugi's Deck. And Remember his Sorceror of Dark Magic's movie effect? It not only negated traps but lowered your opponents attack by 500 for each spellcaster in your graveyard!That so broken that it wasn't even funny! So it depends on if you are judging by the anime effects of the cards or the real life effects. Also, in the first series, magic cards were usable like trap cards during your opponents turn if set face down.--DarkMagicRagnarok (talkcontribs) 17:34, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

It's because they used battle city rules. And besides with all the evolved cards, there are some cards that Yusei might have to save himself from that like Majestic Star Dragon or Shooting Star Dragon. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 14:16, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

I think that if Yugi was alive during the time 5d took place, he would probably have a much stronger deck since the game evolved significantly since his time. Although I have no idea when 5d takes place in the timeline. Anyways, I think the real Game breaker is Yugi's egyptian Gods since in the anime, they are insanely over-powered. Does Yusei have anything that can take down the god? and in YugiohR, Yugi has new cards like Gorz the emissary of darkness, Spellbinding Illusion and Arcana Knight Joker. In the new movie, he has Ancient Rules, and That card that allows him to summon Dark Magician Girl from his hand or deck if he has a Dark Magician on the field, and That card that lets him take an opponents monster while he has 2 spellcasters on the field.--DarkMagicRagnarok (talkcontribs) 04:34, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

sorry yugi isnt that great anymore especially now that he only relies on the gods and dark magician yusei oviously now is

Please don't tack on the end of my paragraph and sign your posts so people know its someone else posting. Also, How is relying on your most powerful cards a negative? We all rely on our powerful cards and build strategies around them. and if you ever read yugioh R, he never really relied on the Gods to win. when in a bind, doesnt Yusei also rely on his strongest cards? And Yugi's Dark Magician is his signature card just like how Yusei has Stardust Dragon and Jaden has Neos.--DarkMagicRagnarok (talkcontribs) 04:34, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

  • Not to mention Atemu used the gods, not Yugi.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

I totaly go with dark magic ragnarok dark magician rules!--Arcanitejedi (talkcontribs) 13:50, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

yusei would win. Yugi just have a bunch of useless cards and cant execute combo's with them. Dark magacian 2 tribute no effect with an low attack. yusei can just bring an junk archer or sometimes some other warriors in 1st turn. Jadens good but he relies to much on fusion. Stardust Mirage (talkcontribs) 21:34, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

The fusions are really good though if you think about it. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 01:22, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

Non-effect types have a bunch of really good spell cards now. Just cause it doesnt have an effect doesnt mean it sucks. Not only that, Dark Magician has tons of support to get him out on the field so it doesnt really matter if he's 2 tribute or not. And I agree with fallensilence on fusions. Fusions can be incredible and jadens manga deck has fusion monsters who use 1 e-hero and a monster of a certain attribute which you can use super polymerization to fuse with your opponents monsters. He has a wide variety too so he covers almost all types.--DarkMagicRagnarok (talkcontribs) 16:08, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

Alright u pull out dark magician with 2500 attack points in real life i summon stardust and then accel syncrho summon shooting star dragon i say pick up 5 cards 3 tuners among them tht means 3 attacks boom dark magian bye bye and then so is 6600 of your life points altogether thts 7400 ya yugi just got whooped.

I would include support cards for specific monsters as less as possible because most of the time it justbecomes a dead lock in your hand (talk) 19:52, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

A dead hand is a bad hand so most decks need support anyways. What kind of deck doesn't? Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 23:44, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Dumbasses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yusei would crush them in a Battle Royal with his awesome Speed Warrior!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Speed Warrior wouldn't even stand a chance against Marshmallon. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 23:51, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

To the Shooting star dragon guy, Yugi activates Monster Reborn and Polymerization (like he does in the anime) and brings back Buster Blader and fuses them into Dark Paladin. Dark Paladin gain 500 for each of your dragons making his attack at least 3900 from shooting start and star dust. This is only according to how Yugi played in the anime, and lastly, Just because certain card support was made, it doesnt mean you have to put it in your deck. Dark Magic Curtain is enough for Dark Magician and combined with spell economics, you dont need to pay the life points--DarkMagicRagnarok (talkcontribs) 06:07, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Man it's like Konami changes their fetish for a type of card every time. First Spellcasters, then Warriors and finally Dragons. I'm starting to see something here. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 13:09, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

dark ragnarok yeah tht is true didnt think on tht 1 good point

I have a feeling that Winged Beast would be next. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 22:47, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

They are all good

Yugi would not win without his milenium puzzle but still he is good with his god cards. Jaden is good with his fusions but without them he would be crap just like yugi and his puzzle. Yusei is cool and relaxed but he needs to get a few more better cards, but i have not watch enough to know about him.

  • You missed the Ceremonial Duel, where he battled his alternate puzzle self. Yugi took down more than one god card and won with weaker cards.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Well Yusei got Majestic Star Dragon and Shooting Star Dragon and both are pretty crazy just to let you know. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 23:22, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

well , there is no god player who never lose, but its different when we talk about that three, all of them is the main character , main character of their era , as far as i see the main character always make a miracle in what ever situation , so what ever the result , i just want to watch their match . Nagareboshi-kun (talkcontribs) 02:25, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

I wonder if Yusei will get an epic duel like Jaden in the very end of the series but now is not the time to talk about the end and hope if 5ds can last very long. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 02:32, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

Yugi can duel without his puzzle. In GX he doesnt have it and is still known as the best. But I agree that all 3 of them are amazing.--DarkMagicRagnarok (talkcontribs) 07:27, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

yusei rocks

Yusei will win because he has the majestic star dragon which will Jadens elemtal heros and yugi stupid god cards. plus yusei can also turbo duel while the other two is only about skillv not speed Even leo can beat jaden and yugi. plus jaden is also fucking crazy and yugi believes in the heart of cards while yusei thinks the power of the heart of cards and way more. Yusei is quiet which makes him think better sometimes too quiet

Wat r u tryin to say. I personally think yusei would win, but i also like the play styles of yugi and jaden. (talk) 22:49, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

.......jeez it's just an anime with card games in it. You don't have to swear about it. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 03:19, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Slifer would just cribble the deck by destroying the sync. material....... Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 23:01, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

It's so obvious

That the winner would be Yugi. And I mean Yami yugi, not the little one. Guys, look at the original question more carefully. It's not saying who has the better deck (in that case Yusei, Yugi's cards are outdated and Jaden's combos are highly situational), but the question is asking if those 3 were to duel each other who would come out on top. Yugi has millenium puzzle, which lets him draw whatever he wants. Jaden has Yubel's power, which doesn't do quite as much. And yusei, he's got the birthmark. It lights up, wow. He has actual viable combos and decent cards like Stardust, but he has no chance against the 2 biggest lucksacks in the history of Yugioh. IPlay4Fun (talkcontribs) 08:08, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

but the little one beat the big one . so the little one will win i think . Nagareboshi-kun (talkcontribs) 08:55, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure. You are saying that Yugi will beat Jaden and Jaden is going to beat Yusei? That's a confusing logic. Fallensilence (talkcontribs) 22:48, October 25, 2010 (UTC)


Alright i feel that each of these duelist have their own strengths and weaknesses.

As a Duelist in real life Stardust is plain out broken because its affects don't target and it can take out my obelisk X( This drives me crazy when dueling my friend who runs a Yusei-style deck.

Your wroung because obelisk is uneffected by the effect of monster,spells and trap

Lets Start with Jaden(Jadai)

I personally Don't Like his Dueling Style, But it works for him; on top of that, every elemental hero has a fusion of some sort and all their Effects are amazing. This gives him so much room to plan and make his turn worth while. Next he uses "Contact Fusing" which was what lead to Synchro-Summoning don't forget. this also helps so much. Yes Jaden is lucky but he also obviously "found what he lost" at the moment he attacked Yugi, which definately works in his favor. So give some credit to the guy at Duel Academy. But his weaknesses are he is too unfocused and "La Di Da" Also he doesnt really pack enough punch, one turn power ups won't due, Woboku, Kuriboh and, Mirror Force will stop him in his track.


Yusei is a very Exceptional and Skilled Duelist. You can't deny this. The whole Stardust family is incredibly powerful. but one Summoned Skull will take care of a Stardust in one attack. Yusei has some very power cards but they can easily be countered with some planning, for instance force a tribute like with dark hole and then attack his weaker monsters, not to mention his new star monster Shooting Star can only negate one destruction per-turn and doesn't get removed from the field like stardust. Yusei is TOO wrapped up in being defensive. But an amazing thing that Yusei Specializes in is the fact that he produces so many special summons that he can adapt, recover, defend, and go offensive. Also, Don't mess with Scrap Iron Scarecrow.


Yugi runs very adaptive cards that can adjust to all types of duelists, but his cards are very outdated. On the other hand his cards are also very hard to beat and are strategic. (Well Monster Reborn and Mirror force are just BS) But you look at his top monster Dark Magician, and all the support cards and you can understand why he beats everyone in Battle City. They rival those of the more modern cards that force you to be strategic. Yugi is often too trigger happy to use his cards and protect his favorite card dark magician when sometimes he should let the sacrifice go, like a rook or knight in chess. His advantages are definitely his god cards and his luck. Disadvantages to the gods are the fact that he can't summon gods so quickly with there three monster tribute. the question though was without the gods so his deck would be way less over powered of course.


Alright so Yami cheats, "Oh yeah I can will my cards and pull a first turn all three gods on the field haha and I'm sexy" Anyway this would give Yugi boy an advantage but i feel as if Yami wouldn't step in until Jaden pulls Yubel and Yusei his Stardust. Not to mention the lack of the cheating Egyptian Gods. It would be decently fair because Yugi has less skill.


Well I noticed the mentioning of heart of the cards and luck, and Side Decks.

So heres how most of this would go down, All three use the "Heart of the Cards". Yugi portrays it out loud and preaches it like a sermon. Yusei in prison talks all about believing in the cards and wins with the old mans deck and the criminal deck. Not to mention, his random destiny draws that save him from losing with 100 life points left. And don't forget Jaden with his only one card to save my butt cards. As for Side Decks, a few cards that would help: Divine Wrath *personal favorite I always use at least one every duel, My heart of the cards*, Bottomless Trap Hole, Yugi's Magic Cylinder and Mirror Force, Tuners Scheme *If they update any cards* Negate Attack, Magic Jammer, Trap Jammer, and obviously the Wicked Gods and Sacred Gods(Beasts) would hold up. This would be incredibly Epic but I think Yusei would win because of his Adaptive-ness or that Yugi/Yami would cheat will his cards. Or Pegasus would step in and read everyones cards lol :) Sry it's so long had alot on each.

Mouthal (talkcontribs) 04:25, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

  • You messed up a couple for things. Yami only willed his cards in the final duel. Yugi has more skill because he beat Yami when he was using said willing power and the god cards, even with the use of weaker cards.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 10:02, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the correcting me :). Yugi does have more skill than Yami and we knew this had to be true because Yugi was destined to control Yami. But I was referring to Jaden and Yusei as having more skill due to the fact that they had to deal with everything that existed in Yugi's time and more. But thats just my oppinion though.

and Another thing I remembered is that all three of their ace monsters have 2500 ATK and they all have cards that support them throughout their decks. Mouthal (talkcontribs) 11:56, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

    • Here's the thing though: they also had more cards of their own at their disposal, especially when you consider Yusei and his synchros. I like to think Yugi might possibly use the magician synchros if he were to update his deck.--Azul120 (talkcontribs) 05:05, November 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • I absolutely agree with this, one thing we I was always curious about is the difference in time between Yugi and Yusei; because that would make a huge difference in how well they could handle each other. And i think the question should have been reworded to Yugi with Slifer, so only one god vs Yubel and Shooting Star Dragon seeing as how those were possibly the more powerful Cards of Yugi's time and the 5 signers are gods on their own.

Mouthal (talkcontribs) 20:34, November 23, 2010 (UTC)

Yusei, no doubt about it!

Naturally with his Synchros Yusei would beat both Yugi and Jaden. Besides he has Shooting Star Dragon in his Extra Deck.--elementalknight (talkcontribs) 23:43, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

yusei is gay

trap cards

as i watched yugioh i noticed whoever had the most trap cards won. so from what i an gather the outcome is yugi had the most, followed by yusie, and then jaden, he rarely used trap cards. well thats compared to the other two. with that said jaden has lost horribly to yugi, not atem, or it wasnt supposed to be atem it was an older yugi. and yusie well his deck is very fluid but something about it does seem rite in real world rules and yusie does have stardust assualt mode. yugi on the other hand has an unlimited deck lol he can always draw for the win. heh lets toss a coin.

It is true, because traps can completely reverse the situation (e.g. Mirror Force). In the anime, they do this because it is more epic. But in real life, the Ancient Gears would cribble your poor traps..... 8-( This is also without counting Royal Decree, Jinzo, Sorcerer of Dark Magic,... Of course, with your theory that Yugi's cheating, this won't harm him a lot cuz he'll just put them on the bottom of his deck....... Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 23:19, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

If you update all of their decks...

If you were to update all of their decks with the current cards that are out, it would be Yugi, Jaden, and Yusei, in that order. Yugi, because he could have the Wicked Gods, and probable Spellcaster synchros, Jaden because he could used Evil Heroes, Elemental Heroes, and Masked Heroes (assuming that the OCG support continues beyond mentioning them in card text), and Yusei, due to his reliance on Stardust incarnations. Just a thought. Jon Kovacs (talkcontribs) 19:44, December 27, 2010 (UTC)

    • You are forgetting that actual question in itself. They don't get to update their decks if we are to answer this question correctly.

Adding in some ideas pretty late...

Before I can answer that question one needs to ask; which of their respective decks are they using? If Yugi is, per say, using his duelist kingdom deck (first season), Jaden is using his original Elemental Hero Deck (GX first season), and Yusei is using his initial deck (5Ds first season), then the only real question is who does what first; does Jaden pull out Flame Wingman and Skyscraper, or does Yusei summon Junk Warrior or another of his initial Synchrons? I only include those two because Yugi has no chance here. If Jaden summons his Wingman first, even with Skyscraper out, he loses, Yusei would synchro summon into a powerful Nitro Warrior, maybe combine it with Armory Arm, and end it there. Jaden wouldn't even be able to counter. Likewise, if Yusei summons ANY of his synchros first, it doesn't matter which one; next turn Jaden will pull of some combo, pull out wingman and skyscraper, and win.

So it comes down not only to what DECKS that the three are using, but also to WHO makes the first move, understand? Perhaps another example will help my explanation;

Yugi is using his final deck of the series (The one for the Ceremonial Duel), Jaden is using his respective final deck (which he plays, surprise, against Yugi), and Yusei is using his current deck that we know of (with about a billion Stardust Dragon variants).

Again now we need to know who does what first. Obviously, if Yugi pulls out a God Card in this scenario, the other two are put into a tough spot; Anime-wise, the Egyptian gods are nigh-unstoppable, immune to most effects and can gain an immeasurable amount of attack points fairly quickly. To defeat any of them, Jaden and Yusei would have to focus on cards that affect Yugi's FIELD rather than the cards ON it, not an easy thing to do.

Jaden's ultimate card (as far as I'm aware, anyway-correct me if I'm wrong) is Elemental Hero Divine Neos. Now, since this IS an anime, the tedious summoning conditions are easily bypassed. The card's final effect also offers a lot of versatility. Still, it lacks the immunity and the physical force that Yugi's own powerful God Cards possess; it simply wouldn't be much of a match-up unless Yugi used SEVERAL other cards to support it in an all-out brawl.

Similarly, Yusei's ultimate card, Shooting Star Dragon, has tedious summoning requirements, but he pulls it off enough anyway. Again, the card is good, but none of it's effects help it against the god cards. Still, Yusei was able to use it to defeat Sleeping Giant Thud, when combine with several other cards, so that gives him a slight edge in this battle.

Ultimately, however, a duel such as this would go about something like this, should this be a triangle-duel scenario;

The players take a few brief turns stalling each other and doing a small bit of damage. Each of them is able to summon out their respective ace monsters. After a few turns of suffering and great reduction of life points, said ace monsters are all destroyed in some way. At this point, it is up to the player's reserve ace monsters; cards like Dark Magician/Silent Magician, Flame Wingman, and Junk Warrior. The overall victor in the duel would be the player who has the largest collective amount of planning, bluffing, and luck (in addition to whoever the god-damned writers SAY is going to win.).

There is my (not-so) professional opinion on this matter. Good day.

Well, Let's Think About This

@ Everyone calling Yugi, Jaden/Judai and/or Yusei a luck-sack. OK, let's get something straight:

EVERY Yu-Gi-Oh! MC is a luck-sack.

It's true-they all have some magical power that helps them "cheat" and win duels. Yugi has Yami, Judai/Jaden has Yubel (he might not have gotten her until the 3rd season, but it's not like he was that amazing without her :P) and Yusei has the Crimson Dragon. And they all use the Heart-of-the-Cards bit. Magical powers aside, if none of them EVER got their powers, then Yusei would probably win. Yugi got good at dueling and won against Atemu and Bandit Keith from watching Yami play for him on the sidelines. He wouldn't be a very good duelist without him. Judai...he's a good duelist, I'll give him that, but there were just some times (even in the freaking first season) where he lost because he wasn't skilled enough. Yusei won a LOT of duels without any help from the Crimson Dragon. ACTUALLY, he won all the duels that are HUMANLY possible (w/o using any magical powers against anyone who wasn't using magical powers).

@ Everyone saying Yugi would win because the show is named after him

No, it's not. Yu Gi Oh literally means Game King in Japanese (Yugi meaning game and Oh, or Ou, meaning king). Judai (Jaden's Japanese name) means teenager and Yusei means planetary.

@ Everone saying that Judai/Jaden doesn't have a chance

Well, he was a main character, wasn't he? :P I didn't get much past DMGX (just wasn't too interesting), but Judai could probably put up a fight against those two.

@ People just randomly saying that the original was best, and that Atemu's the freaking Pharaoh, so Yugi's automatically gonna win

So? Judai's the freaking King of Darkness or something of that sort, and Yusei's THE FUTURE SOLE SURVIVOR OF HUMANITY!

@ The people who say that God cards pwn and no one can beat them!

What does God cards have to do with ANYTHING? It's a duel, you win with strategy.

Deck-wise at this very moment, I think Yusei would win. Judai has a strong offense, but Yusei has amazing defense. Yugi's deck has no balance-it's just card thrown randomly together. Yusei's deck is just faster and can deal out cards on the first turn. IF Yugi and Judai did upgrade to Synchros, then it would be an extremely interesting battle.

So yes, if there was a duel between all three Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonists, Yusei would win. If Yugi and Judai upgraded their decks, I'd still kind of be rooting for Yusei.

Manga cards?

I don't know how accurate the Anime is to cards the characters have in the Manga, but if I'm not mistaken, Yugi and Jaden had even more powerful monsters in the Manga. In addition, Yugi could have access to the Wicked Gods from Yu-Gi-Oh R. I guess it all comes down to whether or not their decks are the same as they are at the end of their series. If they are, then, according to the anime, it would come down to Yugi and Yusei, considering Yugi beats Jaden at the end of GX. If they're not, and they are expanded to meet the rest of the manga cards, and the support that has since come out for their respective decks, then it could be any of them. Can we let the topic rest now? Maybe if we're lucky the end of 5D's will be the three of them dueling, to continue the trend from GX. Jon Kovacs (talkcontribs) 02:33, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

Euh... Think a little bit: if you put Wicked + Egyptian Gods, it would require even more tributes and considering that putting 3 3-tributes monsters in a deck is already very heavy. Plus Dark Magician, DM Girl, Magician of Black Chaos, Black Luster Soldier, Archefiend of Gilfer.................. and ........................ , it's gonna need a lot of tributes - more than what a deck can generate - even with a LOT of luck. (its gonna need 3 Lv Eater in the grave or something like this). Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 23:39, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Just to be honest

knowing how yugi duels his deck is always upgrading..soooooo..his deck would actually be stronger than all of thiers combine. can u imagine his deck with u really think he really would lose to those to if this deck got a upgrade to fit 5d' not sayin this because he is the king of games im jus stating facts...his deck always had a card for every and any situation..his deck was very well balance and the egyptian god is just another bonus. and i sure we all rememba the episode where he summoned all of them in 3 turns.. red eyes b. ruler (talkcontribs) 02:43, January 24, 2011 (UTC)


There is a lot of confusion about who would win, mainly because the duelists compete in different "metagames".

If this topic were titled "whose deck is the best?" it would clearly be Yusei. His deck is the fastest and and most consistent of the three.

But if the three duelists were to compete in the modern day, to build their own decks using the current pool of cards available to them OR if they were to do a three-way mirror match, I am quite certain the winner would be yugi. Maybe that is a preferential bias, since I grew up on the original show but I feel as if yugi is the one who is the most versatile duelist, regardless of what deck he uses. Think about that time he defeated Duke Devlin in Dungeon Dice Monsters, a game he never played before. Or when he dueled Noah and incorporated Kaibas strategy into his ow? I think it is pretty obvious that yugi is the best duelist and, if the three were to meet on an even playing field, he would emerge victoriousTrak0don (talkcontribs) 23:36, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

Luck or not, he cheats like no other. Kuribohs do not explode on contact, and you can't fuse a magic card with a monster to drain its attack. (talk) 02:38, February 1, 2011 (UTC)


Since all of the main characters (or maybe not Yusei, I haven't seen much 5Ds or read much of it's Manga-yet) seem to have crazy luck only at the end of duels, unless they are playing a non-essential character (whom they will easily defeat), they'll probably all end up at 500 LP, then play their best cards, and none will win, since their luck will kick in and they'll all beat each other.BobaFett2 (talk) 03:12, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Yugi or Yusei

Either yugi or yusei will win

Why? Yugi will draw the correct cards excatly when he wants them. Then he can like freakin summon a god card in just 1 turn. Better yet maybe if will find some crazy way to summon all 3 god cards is one turn. When all 3 are out he will win. Silfer the sky dragon any monster summon attack lower than 2000 will die=GAY!!!

talking about a way to summon a god in a turn, have Malicious, Lv Eater x 2 in your grave. Remove malicious to summon malicious, then Lv eaters eat malicious's lv to S.S. them, and tribute them all. Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 23:48, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Yusei maybe he will win because final moment he will find someway to clear out the field or if there are alot of monster he will just summon shooting star dragon and use the special effect and he will DRAW 5 TUNER MONSTER!!! Also Yusei will get his delta accel synchro so his new delta syncho card will be more gay than shooting star. So Yusei may win

Either way they all cheat to win. you don't see someone in real life draw 5 tuner monster at one go. If it happens that person is really lucky!!!

yusei would win

Um to think about it all the decks suck I mean ya the main cards are awesome but its the other cards that make a deck work like with yusei. I've hardly ever seen him use starlight road and jaden needs to use e-hero absoult zero and a few subs (king of the swamp,hex fusion monsters,etc) and yugi well his deck aways seem to change if he would play with his main cards that u see all the time in his show he get pwned. So with there crap decks and yugi not cheating making himself win or the dudes in japan making him win yusei would beat all of them with shooting star dargon drawing 5 tuners and have it equiped with somethiing to do extra damage and yugi would use mirror force but yusei would use starlight road and jaden.... idk maybe e-hero shining flare wingman or something

But if all of them were in yusei's time I know yugi would build that best deck and jaden would have some awesome new heros(maybe hero synchros. That be awesome) and yugi has a dark magican synchro or use a sweet spell caster deck Hey but yugi is like the only yugioh character who never loses jaden and yusei lose if the first few ep.

YUSEI WOULD WIN!with his stardust dragon that keeps on evolving,He would cream them!yusei more powerful


Yeah, He would just destroy everyone with SPEEEEEEEED WARRIORRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Besides, Paradox would win , if it took all 3 to defeat him, imagine one-on-one. Or Rex ( Not the dinosaur freak, the acually good one), Because He took down blackwings, Jack AAAAAAAAAAAAAND SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED WARRIORRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!

Most objectively

If yusei gets stardust or any of his evolutions he wins, if yugi gets slyfer first, he wins, if jaden gets E-HERO Divine Neos first, he wins. But in a real duel, yugi's deck is really slow, jaden is second and yusei's the fastest of them all, he's able to summon SD in his first turn, and evolve him in the second, or even in the same turn. Yugi's top cards (mirror force, thousand knives and slyfer) destroy cards, so they'll be negated by SD, jaden deck is not high in attack, but have some good effects and might have a chance until either Shooting Star Dragon or SD/バスタ are summoned. Jaden's best card against Yusei is Rainbow neos, but he can only use it if he tags with Crystal Beasts. So... 1. Yusei 2. Yudai 3. Yugi

talking about speed, there's a combo to synchro Shooting Star, or even T.G Halbeld Cannon WITHOUT LOSING HAND ADVANTAGE!!! Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 23:54, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Yusei Would

In my opinion Yusei would main reason being he has synchros and doesn't cheat + he is the only 1 who uses advanced format

-So adding a card/making Majestic Dragon magically appear in his deck DURING a duel isn't cheating? :P -Just another fan

yugi can't use slifer because it says in his text at the way bottom this card can't be used in a duel also yugi's monsters are mainly normal + his deck is slow but the number 1 reason he wouldn't win is he would be disqualified first because he cheats and uses cards incorrectly. Okay let's see how many cards Yugi's used incorrectly: Makiu, the Magical Mist does not drench the playing field with water and increase Summoned Skull atk by 1000, an equip spell like Mystical Moon cannot be attacked by a monster, Burning Land does not serve as a Raigeki, Magical Hats only works for one turn not any more than that, Spellbinding Circle is not Shadow Spell, Spellbinding Circle does not negate a flip effect, Catapult Turtle does not break your opponents Castle of Dark Illusions flotation ring or destroy Mirror Wall, Summoned Skull cannot take on Gate Guardian, Mystic Box does not destroy an opponent's monster without giving them a monster, Multiply does not create an infinite wall of Kuribohs, you cannot fuse Mammoth Graveyard with your opponents blue eyes ultimate dragon with Polymerization, Brain Control requires a cost, Catapult Turtle cannot destroy trap cards, Dark Magician does not turn into Dark Sage when your opponent uses Time Wizard, Horn of the Unicorn goes to the top of your deck if it's destroyed or sent to the grave, Mirror Force does not take any lps away from your opponent after their monster's are destroyed, you can't blind Thousand-Eyes Restrict with Kuribohs or take his absorbing effect with them and they don't self destruct on contact and you cannot atk while he's face-up.

Note that all these cards I mentioned were just used in season 1 there's no telling what other cards he misused in season 2, 3, 4, and 5.

   Who says he misused them? Think about it, man. Different time, different rules. He didn't misuse them according to the ORIGINAL rules that were set in place in the anime and/or manga (been a while since I read the latter, so I'm not entirely sure it was the same). If you want to say he misused them, just say that the entire tournament was a fraud because "You don't only have 2000 life points and you can't summon level 5 or higher without sacrifices!!". As for Mammoth Graveyard fusing with Ultimate Dragon, you forget he used Living Arrow. Yet another card that has a different effect in the anime than it does in real life, so it wouldn't be considered misusing. It just seems like you're trying to make the anime follow the same rules as real life, and there's no reason for that, especially since the anime was first. Heck, if you want to get down to it, you could almost say WE'RE the ones misusing the cards because they don't follow the anime's effects, which was the original :P (talk) 15:12, July 6, 2012 (UTC)just another fan

Jaden probably wouldn't because he uses some of his cards incorrectly and he relies on drawing the correct card like yami/yugi I mean if someone just played Drop Off Jaden/Yugi would lose because they wouldn't have the heart of the cards anymore, also compared to synchros jaden's e-hero fusion are nothing special. (talk) 19:09, May 3, 2011 (UTC)

I think Yusei would win, because his era has much more powerful cards then Judai's and Yami/Yugi's. Shardsilver (talkcontribs) 15:48, January 24, 2012 (UTC)


Yusei has only lost one duel(and that was in a flashback mind you). Yugi has lost at least 3 times and forfeited once. And Jaden, do I need to say it?--DoitForTheLulZ! (talkcontribs) 02:03, May 12, 2011 (UTC)


First and foremost, “Yugi” / “Yami Yugi” would automatically be the winner if such a triple duel were to take place in the anime series due to the proper respect that is given to the protagonist who launched the series.

Furthermore, If the parameters of this question were modified to the current ban list (March 1rst 2011, the reason that I am specifying the current ban list is so that when this gets “archived”, the readers know what ban list to check) and using the “advanced” format (as this appears to me to be an “officially” sanctioned tournament), I would have to say that the winner would be none other than “Yusei Fudo”. Why is this so, you ask? Well, let us look at the following please…

(1) “Stardust Dragon” decks are faster than “Elemental Hero” decks! “Dark Magician” decks are the slowest ones in the group (with all due respect, please do not get angry at me because I am stating my opinion, I hope that you understand that I am not “bashing” the other deck builds at all; I am just being honest about the situation).

(2) “Stardust Dragon” decks are more dangerous than “Elemental Hero” decks and “Dark Magician” decks (with all due respect, please do not get angry at me because I am stating my opinion, I hope that you understand that I am not “bashing” the other deck builds at all; I am just being honest about the situation).

Please look at my “User Profile” information on the deck build that I use when I duel, I am proud to use it and I am not ashamed or too blind to know that following statement is true… You all are probably better duelist than me, but even with my lame and pathetic dueling skills, "Yusei" clearly has the best dueling deck!

  • My “Vanilla” Beatdown Deck SUCKS! because of the following reasons…

(1) It is too slow!

(2) It relies too much on brute force!

(3) The combined effects of the monster cards and spell / trap cards that my opponents use will overwhelm me!

But… I don’t care because even with all of these factors going against my dueling deck, If I am able to catch my opponent off guard with a “dead hand” (a.k.a my opponent cannot use “most” or “all” of the cards in their hand for whatever reason), I can grind my opponent’s LP in dust with brute force and the monster removal capabilities of my deck are insane! Like I said, all I want is “1” win against a synchro deck! I don’t care if I loose 1,000,000 times in a row because according to the mathematical laws of probability, my chances of winning are not “zero”.

YUGI OF COURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i cant believe people are even thinking bout this!!! YUGI WOULD WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he is the KING OF GAMES!!!!!!!!!! and is the most greatest hero (out of jaden and yusei) YUGI WILL WIN HANDS DOWN!!! he beat Seto Kaiba and lets not forget the creator of duel monsters Maximillion Pegasus! AND HIS GOT ATEM THE PHARAOH! its so obvious he would win. Yusei has a birthmark. Wow (sarcasm) and Jaden is a NOOB!!!!!!!! YUGI WILL WIN HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!! (i wrote that twice)

im uber sure yugi would win mostly because hes the only one there that runs a magic cylinder and he also has envoy of the beginning and mirror force and lets not even talk about the god cards Eyemaker (talkcontribs) 19:12, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

Dude he does not have Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning he has the cheap Black Luster Soldier and if you didn't notice Yugi misuses all his cards and the Egyptian Gods can't be used in duels except the legal which he didn't have. Also just because he runs staples doesn't mean he'll win. (talk) 01:08, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Did you ever watch GX? They had a replica deck and he DID have Envoy in it. And how does he misuse the cards? Answer: He doesn't. True, it may seem that way because they have different effects in real life (Card of Sanctity comes to mind), but the anime follows different rules. That doesn't mean he misuses them, it means he uses them correctly according to the ANIME'S rules. If you want to get down to it, you could say that we misuse them because the anime came first and set down the effects before the real cards were made... (talk) 15:17, July 6, 2012 (UTC)just another fan


If their deck were remade into a meta version i.e. yusei=choas plants or quickdraw dandy warior. judai= hero beat/ hero gate. but yugi just really has a topdeck deck, but maybe with the good spellcaster support like that Secret Village of the Spellcasters. i would say it would be close between yusei vs judai...buut tbh i think judai would win :P maybe because i like heroes :) (talk) 17:02, May 27, 2011 (UTC)sbb

think about it!!!!!!!!

ok first of all.... shut up all of you!!! don't you guys think this is just idiotic because:

1.all the powers of yugi,jaden and yusei are the same. the power of the cards just make th powers look different

2. there isn't any yuma in the bet so add yuma too.

ok so... think about it!!!!!!!!

Not Yuma cuz he's as pathetic as Jaden... XD ( least until now) Qun2092849 (talkcontribs) 00:13, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

My thoughts....

I read through most of this and I think there needs to be a few things that needs to be cleared up before seeing who is the better player. Also due to being an in-universe thing I think that Yugi, Jaden & Yusei shouldn't have access to the new ZeXal card pool since I think ZeXal is set in a different universe since so far no references to any of the old series or Domino City has been mentioned.

  • Atem left after the ceremonial battle and losing to Yugi so Yugi will not have Atem helping him in any further games but its safe to assume that Yugi is more confident to play on his own since then. Remember from GX he has BLS-EotB as his key card so by the 5Ds era and the increase in card pool its safe to assume Yugi would've built his deck to work around it.
  • Jaden will probably gotten more HERO cards since travelling with Yubel and would've adapted his deck to the new rulings also out of all the characters he would still have his spirit helper since Yubel never left.
  • Yusei doesn't have the Crimson Dragon anymore since it left all the Singers at the end of 5Ds so its safe to assume he updated his deck at the end so since the end he is just like Yugi in terms he doesn't have that special luck anymore.

At the moment I think the one who would win is either Yugi or Yusei, since both of them are just normal players at the end of the series the match would be more even but its hard to see if one or the other will win, Jaden's deck has always needed alot of luck to pull it off and even with a bigger card pool.

ZeXal has just begun so lets not get ahead of ourselves and add Yuma just yet but if you do he would lose to everyone since without Astral's help he would either play his cards wrong or mess up but in time I think Yuma would win and why is explained in my opening.LDEvolution (talkcontribs)

  • first off watch yugioh bonds beyond time yugi,jaden,and yusei are all in it.Next off what the question there deck battling in a real life seniro or a cannon duel because in a real duel yusei`s deck would win because of his precation cards.yugi`s deck is is not practical but in a cannon duel yugi would win with his belief of the heart of the cards and god cards but yusei and jadden would then have a tie

My observations...

Upon the battle between the 3 king of duelists, I'd like to clear some thing about them.



I don't know. Yami's deck is pretty much composed of some random cards and it will change per duel. I don't like the idea that some of his cards are far too useless unless pulled off by director's command. Example will be Curse of Dragon and effect-less Gaia. Who the hell will put those things in their deck?! Yami only gradually manage to pull off it's use with it's attacks. But seeing it otherwise, most of his cards doesn't go well with each other. Yugi has a random deck. There are only recognizable good portions of his deck, Mirror Force, Magic Cylinder, Swords of reveling light, monster reborn etc.

There is no known strategy for it except Yami just getting out of opponent's pinch. His most notable pressure will be the god cards, which people think will make him win over the other 2 protagonist but hey, Yugi defeated them all at the same time. There's no point in saying absurd things as both Judai and Yusei has encountered a lot of overpowered opponents in their way and YET they didn't use any overpowered cards. Shame on Yami in this part. Yami relies too much on over-powerful cards on the later parts of his journey. It will be good if he is actually defeating them all like nuts, just like what Yugi did. But well, the writers want Yami to look powerful with those so what can we do about it. But guys shouldn't be blindsided by it. Gods doesn't give Yami total advantage. To think about it, everyone knows what Gods cards are capable of(yeah, even Yusei knows about the god cards, mind everyone). And Judai got some experiences himself dealing with Rah and that's without the use of another over-powerful card(again, shame on Yami).So even with god cards, Yami doesn't have 100% chance of winning.

Anyway, the point is that Yami's deck is not really that offensive. He can count on some of his defensive states, like Celtic Guardian, swords of revealing light, anti-attack traps and then pull off some turntables with his aces. Still, Yami also has offensive games. Any deck has, in fact. It's just that no strategy can be viewed from it.


I always hate it when people point out Judai doesn't stand a chance. Heck, because he's not cool in personality? Because GX sucks in their view? Whatever the reason is, THEY'RE WRONG!!! 100% WRONG!!!

Judai's deck has the "BEST OFFENSIVE ABILITY" out of the three. Don't even try to disagree with this. His fusion's comes with little-to-no effort summoning and that's based on real life experience. If ever you have been able to use an E-Hero deck quite good, then you know what I am talking about. In fact, it doesn't really matter if he don't have polymerization in his deck. Judai is a fusion powerhouse. He WILL find a way to fuse monsters, specially with his skills. No body in the anime can beat him in fusion summoning.

Judai also can get an easy advantage in attack power above Yugi basically but not that easy against Yusei. E-Heros are powerful for overwhelming defensive opponents. And they come in any situations possible. And mind everyone, He can has a wide variety of fusions. There are many combinations, and most are very powerful. Might it be piercing, effect damage, additional destroy or altogether, Judai's fusions masters those. And notably, he has some new aces for the movie. Well, can't help it. His deck has the most powerful offensive combinations. For Yugi's deck, it'll be hard. For Yusei's deck, well, there's considerations.

Now, despite all this, Judai's deck has the least defense. Judai can defend himself by giving more powerful monsters on the field. But hey, Judai gets some good spell and traps too. Although, most are waiting-types. Yeah, some equips are really pissing and in real life, that's the greatest weakness of E-Hero. However, Judai make-up for it with his very own designed Neo-Spacians. His Neos fusions are undoubtedly his specialty. But they go to deck at end phase. Well, It's really pissy but some cards always pull's off Judai's Neos so not for him to worry, isn't it?


Yusei's deck is synchro and for an anime deck, is smartly made. I like his deck as much as Judai's. Yusei is swarm. I like I when Yusei is getting monsters and then getting monsters and synchro. Then gets monsters and gets another one. Like HELL! Yusei's deck is so swarm that you rarely see him advance summon a monster. This goes without saying, Yusei has the fastest deck in the three. He pulls good cards very easy despite not having a central strategy like that of Judai's deck and that's thanks to his cards that gets another cards. It's all understandable. After all, his deck needs the most skill to utilize. His cards are mostly composed of adjusting levels and too bad synchros need to be exact in level. Plus the fact the his playing riding duel, restricting his spells much.

Just like Judai's, Yusei's synchros are powerful. His non-Stardust synchros are field worthy and they even get more ability by the fact that Yusei's synchro materials have additional benefits when they are used for synchro summon. Getting to his main dish, his Stardust family is tremendously powerful but is really hard to maintain for real-life duelist. Considering he has a wild variety of Stardust-based monsters, you might think that Yusei is hopeless when Stardust dragon bites the dust. But don't even think about it. Yusei controls his dead cards better than Yugi and Judai. Be it Stardust dragon being in graveyard or remove from play, he can manage to get a way and acquire it back. His deck always has the great ability to give him stardust dragon where ever it is. Heck even if they are on opponent. Well, I guess Yusei is not afraid of the words "remove from play" that other duelist might be wetting they pants about.

I also think Yusei's deck has the best defensive in the 3. Yusei plays with stardust family to survive barrages of combos, and it can be pissing for opponent once Yusei sets his Scrap Iron Scarecrow. That's a nasty trap card that I want to get my hands with, seriously. Even the gang banging of 3 Polar gods, Temporals and some more asses didn't penetrate against his synchro awesomeness.

Another things to clear out:

JUDAI IS NOT AN UNFOCUSED AND A NOOB DUELIST!!! What makes people think Judai in not very focused in dueling? Judai has been a very combatant duelist ever since he step to season 4. And mind everyone, he is very good in focus that Judai can even win based on card calculations. That was against a very good deck-destruction duelist he fought. I don't really like the fact that people are underestimating Judai for his un-cool personality. Who ever said Judai is noob??? Can a noob defeat 3 demon cards, a god card, par with Yubel and Yugi? Like seriously, they are clearly underestimating Judai.

Strong cars vs God cards??? Oh like hell... Everyone is asking things like "Does Judai/Yusei have a card to go up against the gods?", which is plain stupid to ask. Yugi destroyed the living crap out of the three of them without using powerful monster. What makes people think Yusei or Judai should have one to try and take it down?

Special powers = Pure win!!! Another crazy thing. The protagonist's special attributes doesn't really give them any "plus" in dueling. Yugi/Yami's millennium puzzle doesn't actually give them the ability to draw the cards they want. Judai's yubel doesn't really give him the same ability either(what does yubel have to do with Judai's dueling, honestly???) and Yusei's crimson dragon are but willpower for him.

Final Episode of GX is convincing??? Oh please, why do people have to judge Judai's skills to Yugi based on the final episode of GX, for god sake!!!??? Didn't people really noticed it? JUDAI LOST ON PURPOSE!!!!! He attack Slifer himself. If he didn't, the battle is still not over since Slifer will go back to the graveyard.

[]Just want to ask: Are you sure Slifer would? True, MAGIC cards affect the Gods for only one turn, but Slifer wasn't revived with a magic card, it was a trap, so it seems that that limitation would not affect Slifer and he would indeed stay on the field. Unless I missed something in the anime that states traps only work for one turn as well. (talk) 15:26, July 6, 2012 (UTC)just another fan

All of them are overpowered!!! So let me get this straight. For people saying Judai and Yusei also has overpowered cards, mind you, that is nothing compared to God card's summoning condition. 3 Tributes is so easy even for casual duelist.

King of Duelist automatically wins "Yugi/Yami is the king of Games!!! They will win!!!"... These are getting irritating as always. Who cares if Yugi is the king of duelist. A person will be beaten by a better person regardless of his title. Yugi being king of duelist doesn't automatically give him a winning streak. By the way, Judai and Yusei are King of Duelists and legendary as well...

Luck... Ok, for people here saying a protagonist only wins by luck is not really acceptable. We all know some of their duels are in accordance to a "lucky draw" stuff, but we can't put a blind eye on the things they have accomplished with their skills. Hell, Yusei's win over 3 polar gods = Mind game win! Yusei's win over team unicorn = maind game win agin.

Ok, this time i won't say who actually will win. It's up to the writers. In terms of skill, it's hard to decide. But I will say Yusei because his deck requires one hell of a skill to utilize. Besides, he's planning, bluffing and cautions are far more realistic than the other 2. Plus, his cards are hard to maintain.

But anyway, It's hard to decide who will win...

Hmmm... Whoever tampered in my post can't accept things...--Coballes19 (talkcontribs) 13:09, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

Jaden or Yugi

I don't know how some of you guys say that yusei's deck is consistent. It is always stacked full of new cards every duel, most of which he only uses once, to the point where he practically has a new deck every duel. And if you look at Jaden's deck, he uses a lot of his cards more than once, more than yusei and yugi does, making his deck more consistent than all of the 3 protagonists. If each protagonist was to stick to the cards that they mainly use, which yusei doesn't have as much as the other protagonists, then Jaden would probably win. But if you take into account that Yugi was able to beat Yami, who had all 3 Egyptian gods on the field and at the same time, not to mention that Yami has the power to draw the exact card that he wants, which the other two can't do, then Yugi would win, as the other 2 haven't been in a situation like that. Neos01 (talkcontribs) 21:42, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

ok first sign your posts, secondly, what the hell? The main problem people have with Jaden is that he ass-pulls a new card every match. Yusei is quite consistent, using the same stuff a lot like stardust and junk warrior. For GX, every episode is a let's see what new elemental hero jaden hasnt pulled out of his 3 million size extra deck yet. So yeah you got that mega backwards dude, Jaden is not consistent at all. I'm not saying Jaden is bad, I'm just saying your points are backwards to what it actually is. Neon Rider (talkcontribs) 17:17, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Are you serious? Don't you notice that in just about every duel, yusei pulls out like 5 brand new cards he only uses once? and no, if you watch yugioh gx properly, Jaden doesn't debut a new a hero every single time. I admit he does have some one time only cards, but Yusei has a lot more. Look at his duels from the WRGP onwards, he debuts probably 5 or more new cards per duel that he only uses once, even in the previous season he did the same thing. And if you notice, ever since he got his shooting star dragon, he rarely used a non stardust related synchro afterwards, apart from his final duel with Jack and his duel with Z-one. Jaden always uses the same Elemental Heroes and Neo spacians, sure he debuts a few new heroes which he only uses once, but Yusei will just debut some random monsters and trap cards which he only uses once to synchro summon his shooting star dragon, so no, his deck isn't consistent. I'm not saying Jaden's deck is perfectly consistent, but it does have significantly less one time only cards than Yusei's deck, so your points are all backwards, not mine. Neos01 (talkcontribs) 21:42, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, seriously though guys, how many times have we seen Yugi pull out some random ass card from nowhere and never use it again? Disgraceful Charity, Brave Attack, Relay Soul, Magical Academy, Pump Up, Reduction Barrier, Natural Selection, Royal Straight Slasher, Dark Magic Retribution, and more. All three of them do all the same crap. The only real difference is their intelligence levels. So, since Jaden makes Joey Wheeler seem smart, I don't think he stands a chance. Skullvarnish (talkcontribs) 19:21, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

All I'm saying is that Jaden does it the least, while everyone seems to think he does it the most when he doesn't if you look at his deck properly. I'm not saying that he doesn't do it at all. And no, Jaden does duel smartly, he just shows more excitement to duels than the other protagonists, even in life threatening situations, which makes him seem stupid, but he's way smarter than Joey. Neos01 (talkcontribs) 21:42, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

lol, you're right, no one's dumber than Joey.

"I don't get it, what's that dog under?"

Also, Sartorius was a tougher opponent than Marik. I just feel that either Yugi or Yusei would win. Skullvarnish (talkcontribs) 19:34, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Yusei does have skill, but I'm sick and tired of everyone saying that Jaden always ass pulls out a one time only card in every duel more than any other protagonist, which makes his deck inconsistent, but Yusei does that far more often. He always debuts random monsters and trap cards that he only uses once, more so than Jaden. He probably debuts 5 or more new cards per duel, most of which he only uses once; Jaden doesn't debut that many new cards per duel if you look at his deck closely. Also ever since he got shooting star dragon, yusei hardly used any synchro monster other than that one. Before that, it was either Stardust Dragon of Junk Warrior. Jaden doesn't just focus on using Neos or flame wingman, he uses practically most of his heroes, whereas Yusei practically just focuses on Stardust dragon, Shooting Star Dragon and Junk Warrior. Neos01 (talkcontribs) 21:42, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

No, you're totally right. I was just pointing out that they all do it, a lot. Even Yugi. It's just, for me, I can't see Jaden winning. It's not even about skill. In a three-way duel, the best player rarely wins. I just feel that Yugi would be the best at trying to deal with two great opponents at the same time. Skullvarnish (talkcontribs) 20:57, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Fair enough. I agree with you on the fact that Yugi is better than Jaden and that they all pull out one time only cards, but literally, the only excuse that people can come up with to make Yusei better than Jaden is that they say that Jaden always pulls out a random one time only card in every duel more than yusei or yugi and because of that has a very inconsistent deck; whereas if you actually look at it, Yusei pulls out random one time only cards far more often than Jaden or Yugi. I'm just sick and tired of people making that stupid excuse about Jaden when its not even true; I'm glad that somebody is able to notice that about Yusei's deck, no one else seems to mention or notice that about his deck. Neos01 (talkcontribs) 21:42, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Another thing to look at is mental stamina. The way all 3 of these guys play, this duel could go 50+ turns. That's the difference maker. I'm not sure who would necessarily have the edge there. Skullvarnish (talkcontribs) 21:19, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

I never thought about that factor, but given Jaden's love of dueling being outrageously high, he could probably have the edge. I know this is a really stupid question so forgive me, but do you know how to sign your posts. I'm new to the forums section of the wiki so I don't know Neos01 (talkcontribs) 21:42, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, that actually could help Jaden a lot...

Anyways, just type this thing----> ~ 4 times. There's also a button for it under the "publish" button a ways. Click that and it does it for you. Skullvarnish (talkcontribs) 21:35, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks dude for the help Neos01 (talkcontribs) 21:42, July 15, 2011 (UTC)


I assum the Following: 1 its not a three way duel each player duels every other player and the one who beats both of them is best 2 hey use a more refined verison of there decks each protactagist uses a ton of 1 time only cards that are never shown again and there decks have way more than a normal professional player would have, there decks will be cut back less luck focused. 3 There's no lucky last draws involved they have to rely on how good there decks are with out getting the right vcard at the right time.

Yusei seems to be the most probable, I think power would make a biggest difference. Yugi's deck lack power since he has the oldest deck out of all of them, I realize that the Egyptian Gods are powerful (well I'm assuming that were talking about the one's in the anime not the real ones) but they take 3 tributes to summon and Yugi has very few cards to help him special summon where as Yusei has tones of card that can swarm the field so he can Synchro summon his powerful monsters before Yugi could tribute summon his, Also most of Yugi's Anti monster cards destroy cards instead of banishing or bouncing them so yusei could easy counter them

As for Jaden he has more useful cards but his deck relizes on luck and having neo space on the field. Againist Yusei's Shooting Star Dragon most Neos monsters wouldn't do very well since non of them can attack twice and there first attack would be negated so they'd return Extra deck before inflicting damage. Grand Mole would be great aggainist Synchro monsters bt not enough to defeat Yusei on it own

Sorry I miss understood the question Yusei still

If Yugi didn't have his Egyptian gods and his battle city deck and it was a three way. First of all Yugi would lose instantly without using a lucksack. Jaden would rely on luck too much since he would need 2 approprate Elemental Heros or Neos Space to be active, for his fusions to be effective

Where as Yusei can synchro summon his powerful cards fast and he has the most powerful final form of his ace card Shooting Quasar Dragon.

However, summoning Shooting Quasar Dragon is no easy task, while Jaden's God Neos is more easy to summon. Also Jaden doesn't need Neo Space for his fusions to be effective as he has instant neo space, and he can use his non-neos elemental hero fusions as well and summon them just as quickly as Yusei. Also don't forget that Yusei also relies on drawing the right card at the right time, not just Jaden. Yusei also has to worry about the level of his monsters being appropriate to his synchro monsters, whereas Jaden doesn't have to worry about that. All 3 of the main protagonists rely on the luck of the draw, so saying that Yugi would lose instantly without it isn't being quite fair. Neos01 (talkcontribs) 18:08, July 16, 2011 (UTC)

This is Tough

Hm... it is best to look at each duelist's individual strengths and weaknesses to make a thoughtful decision.

Yami Yugi. The King of Games. Atem the Pharaoh. What ever name you give him, Yami Yugi's cards and style is iconic to the series, but is his deck good enough to go against Jaden's E-Heroes or Yusei's Synchro Monsters? From my opinion on his deck, I would have to give a resounding "yes." Yami Yugi has a few advantages over Jaden and Yusei. For one, Yugi has the three Egyptian God cards in his deck and his deck focuses on summon one of his key cards or the god cards. Another obvious strength is his ability to draw the cards he needs at the exact moment. This is not just anime protagonist powers, it's one his abilities as demonstrated in the Ceremonial Battle against Yugi Muto. He could probably use this to his advantage. His deck is also quick to summon his key cards like Dark Magician.

There's always negatives though, and the King of Games is no exception. In the Ceremonial Battle, he seems to be full of himself when he has all three god cards on his field, even though it has been shown that they can be stopped. This might leave him to being easily shocked when something goes wrong. Also, even though his deck is fast, it is not as fast as Jaden's or Yusei's decks.

Now onto Jaden Yuki. This was the duelist that was pretty much blessed by Yugi during the first episode of GX when he gave Jaden the Winged Kuriboh. We have noticed in the final few episodes of season four of GX, he is able to hold up his own against Yami Yugi, even though it is presumed he lost. What about Yusei, though? I personally love Jaden's deck, but it's not without faults. His playing style involves summoning fusion monsters, usually involving Elemental Heroes or Neo-Spacians. Even without fusion monsters, the easily-summonable Elemental Hero Neos has a bunch of support cards that Jaden uses on a regular basis. His deck can easily adapt to most situations, whether it suits the situation or not.

Unfortunately for Jaden, he is the weakest of the three duelists in terms of deck. Most of the cards in his deck are very situational and it isn't likely that he'll draw the right cards at the right time (he relies mostly on his anime protagonist powers). I imagine him struggling a lot against Yugi's and Yusei's aggressive monsters. Like the other protagonists though, Jaden is pretty bright when he's not distracted by other things.

Yusei Fudo may appear to be an interesting character. However I find him the least interesting of the three protagonists. He doesn't suffer a profound fall-from-grace like Yugi and Jaden, he just hits a speed bump and quickly recovers. I can see that as a characteristic of Yusei's strength as a YGO protagonist. Does Yusei have the upper hand with his Synchro monsters?

The answer to that is debatable, with no solid answer. His deck is quick to Synchro Summon his key Synchro monsters. Even without Synchro monsters, his deck can bring out big monsters regardless with varying support cards. Either way, Synchro Summoning is his major advantage. Also, much like Yugi, he has the ability to get the cards he needs at the right moment, thanks to his connection to the Crinsom Dragon.

In a way, Synchro Summoning is also his major weakness. He NEEDS to Synchro Summon. Even when his Synchro Summoning is "sealed," the way to get around that was to, of course, Synchro Summon. He didn't learn much from season two, I believe. He didn't REALLY find a way to prevent the Meklord Emperors, he just destroyed them before they could absorb his Synchros. Also like Jaden's deck, the cards in his deck are situational and only apply to Yusei's world where his opponents would use Synchro monsters as well as him.

From my observations, I believe that Yami Yugi would have the easiest time against Jaden and Yusei. For one, the cards in Yugi's deck aren't situational and could be used against any opponent. His deck is the most flexible out of the main protagonist's decks. He is also the most intimidating out of the three, thanks to his experience to the game. I believe that Yusei would be able to trump against Jaden Yuki quickly with his Synchro Summoning. Jaden's deck might not come out on top, but it could be a force to be reckoned with if he did draw the right cards.

Basicially: Yami Yugi > Yusei Fudo > Jaden Yuki I hope you enjoyed my little essay. ^^

No... Just 2 random people using Yusei and Yugi's deck fighting each other. No way it'll prove something. It's just a tie for me. All 3 of them are equal...--Coballes19 (talkcontribs) 12:55, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

He's one of my favorite characters... AnnoyingMacroPrick (talkcontribs) 16:35, July 20, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think they'd be able to make a valid Jaden replica deck, he uses way too many cards to fit into a real deck. Yugi and Yusei, as well as the duel having been a fight between old and new (Jaden being in the middle), have decks with the same guys showing up with consistency (Dark Magician, Stardust). Jaden is just pull out a new card every episode (Moar Neos boosts =O ), so including it would be hard. But yeah I assume the main reason is between old and new ^_^ Neon Rider (talkcontribs) 22:12, July 21, 2011 (UTC)


for any of you who havent seen dawn of the duel you havent seen yugis true real deck with silent swordsman,silent magician, gandora the dragon of destruction and many others. so dont say dark magicain is yugis only yugi got mirrior force.yugi would win he is the king of games,the orginal heart of the card believer and has the best hair. jaden is the a good duelist but not better then yugi. yusie is good but has trouble during regular duels as apose to regular dueling. and it ight happen cuz in the movie it says they will meet again

yugi will surely win

I think Yusei would win. Then Jaden and then Yugi. Yusei is AWESOME!!! And I think turbo dueling is cool and its not a motor bike its a duel runner. :P

It's not a duel runner it's a D-Wheel, don't let 4kids win! ;D Neon Rider (talkcontribs) 10:01, September 5, 2011 (UTC)


Okay first of all, it should be a turbo duel. yusei would have his duel runner, jaden with akizas (just because its red), and yami with crows. then yusei with Acsel Sycro - Summon. but it would be a draw. an epic duel all the way through, but then at the end, they would take each others life points with Majestic Star Dragon, Dark Magician, and Elemental Hero Neos.

Who would actually win, and why.

Okay, first off... Every single one of those character's are freaking lucksacks. ALL of their card combo's are situational and VERY few of those combo's can be altered quickly and effectively... EVERY single card they draw that is shown is SOMEHOW used in the duel. If they draw a card at the beginning of the dual that requires a specific monster? Guess what! Next 1-5 turns, there's that silly lucky monster! I mean, seriously in Yusei's Deck he has Starlight Road. Now, I've played in more than my fair share of tournaments in MULTIPLE states, and it is VERY rare that anyone has an effect that destroys two or more of my monsters. The three most that come to mind is Lightning Vortex, Mirror Force, and Heavy Storm. Despite those three, it's still VERY circumstantial that I even have that card on my field. And yes, every time it's happened to Yusei, it's been on the field. Now, Jaden's deck. Let's not even get started... Every card he draws is just so helpful to the current situation, so I don't even need an example there. Next, Yugi Muto. His deck is actually well comprimised and has very little cards centered around a single card. Marshmellon is the only card the requires a specific monster, and even then Marshmellon can stand alone quite well. And now the big one. Atem, whose deck may as well just say "I cheat." Defusion? Assuming anyone ever has a fusion on the field... De-spell? Assuming someone uses a continuous magic card or you pick a lucky facedown. Exile of the Wicked? Assuming they have fiends! Multiply assuming you have a Kuriboh. And I will also take into account the actual effect of Multiply in the show. So instead of Kuriboh, it is now either Kuriboh, or a token monster. Disgraceful Charity. Assuming anyone will discard a card from your hand with a spell card. Life Shaver? You might be dead by then. And Light of Intervention only helpful if they have face downs to play. This is all not even counting if you DRAW the card. Yami Yugi has around seventy cards in his deck without the Egyptian Gods. Not counting his need of the Dark Magician for Thousand Knives and Magical Hats, his deck is by far reliant on "the heart of the cards". All in all from what I can see. This is how it would go. Yugi Muto in First Place. Yusei Fudo in Second Place Jaden Yuki in Third Place Yami Yugi in Fourth Place

This all is assuming they lack ANY form of magical capability, and if you've noticed, taking their strongest form of deck, Yugi Muto is the only one who dueled without Magic.

With Magic, the duels would be more like this.

Yami Yugi in First Jaden Yuki in Second Yusei Fudo in Third Yugi Muto in Last

I say Muto in last, simply because during that final duel with Atem, a single wrong draw meant he lost, so it was all too circumstantial, while at the same time Atem can draw whatever card he wants to draw. (He uses this ability whenever he desperately needs the card to win, and this has happened prior to the Atem VS Yugi final dual.)

Okay rant's done.

They are all very talented and Pro duelist,but only one is better then all.Im Listing from 1-3 .

Number 1 is clearly Yami Yugi/Yugi.He is the Pharaoh and has been playing the game for 5000 years.He Rarely loses a duel and can also make a number of strategy's with yugi in his mind.Thats 2 smart and talented duelist in one mind.He also holds the three Egyptian god cards which makes him unbeatable.Also if Jaden or Yusei happen to steal the gods and use them on yugi it wouldn't matter because yugi can take out all three at once,which he has done before when dueling the pharaoh in Egypt.A duelist who holds the three strongest duel monsters and knows its weakness when use against him,thats a real king of duelmonsters.

Number 2 has to be Jaden.He has to be one of the most talented duelist in the yugioh series.He is the best duelist in duel academy history,but he doesn't get the dueling reputation he deserves,since he is the lowest classmen in duel academy.I doubt that anybody outside duel academy knows of his skills.He beat numerous duelist that outranks him and just like yugi,he rarely loses a duel.Jaden nearly beat yugi is season 4 but yugi came out on top.Jaden has so many EHeros and so many combinations and different effects for each one.If Jaden was more known for his dueling skills or chooses to duel in the pro league, he can easily be the next duelmonsters champion.

Number 3 is Yusei.Im putting yusei on the bottom because he cant beat jaden.Yusei is good but he wouldnt win against saying this because of yusei's monsters.Yusei's main strategy is to synchro summon.He relys on low level monsters with very low attack points while jaden has numerous monsters with high attack points.Jaden also has better combos and many different strategys with his heros and neospacians.jaden can clearly summon out more monsters than yusei and take out his tunners before he gets a chance to synchro.Also if jaden manages to bring out Neos Knight he clearly has field advantage which can clear the field.Yusei is very talented and smart when it comes to turbo dueling,which jaden clearly cant beat yusei at. Yusei can get out of pretty much any tight spot he is in when turbo dueling.When dueling against team unicorn in the WRGP he defeated all three members with less than 15 cards in his deck.Team Unicorn clearly had the advantage and yusei came out on top.When it come to turbo dueling Yusei is the best.

The answer.

I am very annoyed of reading stupid posts!! Most of the people who write hear EXCEPT the ones who said that the 3 legendary duelists would tie, love a character so they said that we would definitley win!! The truth is that NONE of the 3 decks is formitable as all 3 of them used some cards only once in their series to win some battles. Let's analyse that:

Yugi Muto: Main Protagonist and known as the best of the best. In the battle between Jaden he would 99% lost as he has no cards that could turn the table in his hand and all the card-drawing cards were used. His will manipulates fate and he lost only to Kaiba (Duelist Kingdom) when kaiba cheated, Rebecca giving up the duel to make her learn something and Raphael when evil penetrated his heart.

Advantages: Always has a way of surprising the opponent on the final draw and bringing out the right monster at the right time. He is the duelist that can read the others strategy easier because he has 2 minds (Yugi and Atem) and in the series had only a few 'winning cards'that were used only once just to win a different battle (such as in the battle in Noa's virtual world against Big 5 he used 'rainbow blessing').

Disadvantages: Many of his cards are not quick-play now and he cannot use them as he did in the first series..also 'multiply' cannot make kuribo's the ultimate shield, (just 5 kuriboh tokens now) and many more that would make his game with the today rules weaker.

Best Turn-overs: Noa, Rare Huner(Exodia Deck), Kaiba (Battle City) and Leon. Top: Against Dartz.


Jaiden Yuki: A duelist known to always have fun and win because he trusts his deck and treat his monsters as friends. He is capable of communicating with duel monster spirits. At the end of season 3 his unlocks his true potential as he gains the power of Supreme King and Cosmic Power of Yubel. Already having the Cosmic Power of the Neo-Space in his deck he defeats 'Darkness' duel Yugi were he lost on purpose probably because the match should have no winner to keep the fans quessing. He lost 3 times, Against Zane, Kaiba-man who used Kaiba's Deck and Aster and got his ultimate deck.

Advantages: He has a way to protect his monster although their attack points are not high. And when not he has the 'Skyscraper' ready and no other duelist out of the 3 has a field spell. His traps that protect his monsters are very efficient when an 'E-Hero' is on the field..He never destroyed his opponents monsters with them instead he negated the attacks and turned the tables next round. 'Neos Fusion Monsters' can have a lot of attack points (Magma Neos, Flare Neos) and his E-heros (Flame Wingman, Thunder Giant) a lot of special abilities. Plus Yubel, and the new E-hero monsters "(Absolute Zero, Great Tornado) could make Jaden's deck unstoppable.

Whenever he is out of cards he draw 'bubbleman','pot of greed' or 'fifth hope' or Neos that he needs to turn the game...'necroshade' and 'necrogardna' are ALWAYS in the grave. He used many more cards than Yugi and Yusei that were played only once and some of them haven't even been released. Even 'Divine Neos' special ability is not the same in the game. This makes hi deck less efficient and the combos much more difficult to pull out.

Best Turn-Overs: Howard (Sartorius Lawyer), Viper, Sarina and Sartorius (Season 4). Top: Against Sorano.


Yusei Fudo: A duelist who duels for what is right and to protect his City. Most of the times he Turbo-Duels but he made some great duel while not riding his Runner. He gains power from the Crimson Dragon and draws many winning cards at the last moment. He has no special powers other than that but he proved that he can gain unlimited power from the bonds with his friends and hope.

Best Turnovers: One turn K.O. again st the three 'Red' duelists, Aporia, Team-Ragnarok and Sleepin Giant Thud. Top: Against Z-one.

Advantages: His deck is surely the most formitable and even without the addition of some 'single used' cards, it is still mearly unstoppable as you as summon 5 monsters an once, synchro summon twice in a round or summon shooting star dragon who is almost unbeatable with the ability to attack 2,3,4 or even 5 times every battle phase. Managing to accel-synchro during his opponents turn shows his unlimited skill. His biggest advantage is that half of his game is played by using monsters or effect from the grave as many of his tuners bring out monsters from the grave. Many of his cards when used let him draw another one so with these 2 (graveyard and draw) it's very uncommon that he runs out cards.

Disadvantages: Only ONE but important. Dueling against Yugi or Jaden Yusei would not be able to Turbo-Duel so no accel synchro here and his best monster is sealed. His deck has proved to be really strong even when dueling on normal conditinons, but his greatest battles -if we exclude the Iliaster Robot- we Turbo-Duels. If Yusei was to battle either Yugi or Jaden on a Runner, he would probabaly beat both of them because his dueling styl has many more options (synchro, graveyard summoning, effect damage) than the other's 2.


AND JUST TO CONCLUDE, AND THANKS YOU IF YOU READ ALL OF THIS, WE WILL NEVER KNOW THE OUTCOME OF A DUEL OUT OF THESE 3 unless we see the duel!! The best thing we can do is relax and watch Yuma and Astral reaching the Other 3 duelists's skills and powers.

Looking forward to the next movie because the one with Paradox was too short. We fans deserve a decent 1 and a half our movie and if you ,Producers, have no ideas just ask us i'm sure you will get many answers. ^^

-ok some people need to understand some things if they are to use their actual decks then Yugi has the lowest chance of winning (barring random luck) the other IDK. Using the best deck available of the time well... the game progresses by making new cards to attempt and make older super combos obsolete (for when the forbidden list just doesnt cut it) not to mention each time a new protagonist is introduced how many new cards do you think he has access to the new deck are more focused on swarming the field.

Look at Yugi he summons and tributes and uses random one shot cards to stall till he can summon a strong monster (mirror force being the exception). Then Jayden/Judai/whatever He uses lots of fuisions to get a single strong monster quickly out and hope they cannot take care of it the whole game. Then Yusei swarms the field and summons multiple high ATK monster through the use of billions of weak ones. He seems to have the best chance of winning (As opposed to yugi's magic cylinder he uses scrap iron to stall). All there basic trump cards have 2500 (Dark magician, Neos/Terra, Stardust) exclude terra and Stardust is the only one with an effect and including terra is still the easiest to summon. (Dark magician requires 2 monster on the field in general, and so does Neos, Terra needs two monsters in hand and poly, but star dust just needs to swarm with a total of 8 stars).

Jaden would win , cause let's face it , Yubel would go all ape $hit and kill both yugi and yusei!

It is plain impossible.

Guys, before we plunge into this discussion, we have to consider these things: they are not in the same time period; they have different rules; Yugi should be separated into Atemu and Yugi Muto; whether this "battle" is anime or real life; those fancy stuff each uses (ex: Millenium Puzzle, spirits (Yubel?), D-wheel...); and many other things. Once you consider these things, you will come to the conclusion that it is impossible. And it is still impossible even if you upgraded all their decks and took away all their special stuff...besides, it wouldn't happen anyway.(personally I favor Yugi/Atemu, but that's another story) conclusion: IMPOSSIBLE. XNiteShadex (talkcontribs) 20:37, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

Agreed --PL31 (talkcontribs) 15:59, January 24, 2012 (UTC)


Regular Yugi is the most skilled of all of them shown when he beat Atemu who was considerd the best in history and during GX Yugi has retained his title of King of Games, even during 5D's a 100 years later no one has surpassed Yugi he is the only one to have ever achieved the title of King of Games that means hes undefeated as the only way to claim the title is to beat him the title began with him and it died with him thats why they had to create the new title of Duel King he is even considered a legend among legends during Yuseis time.

If in real life, yugi/jaden deck somehow lack of synergy in real life,u see, in jaden deck, can we play neos fusion at the same time with another e hero fusion (except omni hero)? ln yugi deck, magnet warrior archtype, fusion monster:Chimera the flying beast, ritual monster:bls,and spellcasters, yugi has no theme and his most of the card in deck cant synergy with each other in real life.ln yusei deck, yusei use variaton of synchron monster, which their synchron synchro monster counter part are different level, and their counterpart require a certain tuner monster, which mean yusei synchron synchro monster can be quite hard to summon, but at least, after yusei obtained shooting star dragon, he changed his deck onto focus summoning shooting star dragon, which easily to summon in real life.But nowdays, jaden deck become an anti meta deck, yusei deck become a chaos plant deck, yugi deck become an old school deck. Now we imagine, if these 3 main character add staple card in their deck like we do, yugi will definitely stand no chance, obelisk can be killed by dark hole and mirror force, and left yusei and jaden, jaden will probably win because jaden has super polymerisation, which is able to kill yusei's majestic star dragon, stardust dragon, shooting star dragon, and shooting quasar dragon which hard to kill by staple card like bottomless or torrential.

Yu Gi is the King, end of story.

If we decide to take the actual game into accounts, Yugi could always use Buster Blader/ Dark Paladin to demolish Yusei. Jack/King/Queen Knight could bring those suckers out. Swift Gaia could also provide a fast and powerful monster. Jaden doesnt have the firepower to stand against those monsters, Yubel, Rainbow Neos, and Divine Neos are too hard to bring out, dark paladin will hit the field before them, and jaden will be screwed.

Dude, I think Judai would win, since he's got that Sebatiel the Philosopher's Stone thingy-majig and Fusion Cards (Electrum is BEASTLY!). And, personally, I don't think that Judai's a lucky duck. Yugi won his duels since they were so darn scripted, and Yusei won his 'cause of his stupid Crimson Dragon mark like when he dueled Primo and activated Shooting Star's ability, revealing five tuner monsters with the "power" of his friends and Crimson Dragon. And, I don't think that Yusei has the skill because of the Dragon Mark. I'm glad that the Mark left him and his friends; now he won't cheat anymore!! (PS: I HATE YUSEI SO BAD. HE HAS NO HUMOR AND THINKS HE'S SO COOL. PLUS, HE EXAGERATES ON SYNCHRO SUMMONING AND GOES GAGA OVER FRIENDSHIP.)



  • And Jaden would just use the Power of the Supreme King. And then Yusei would use the Crimson Dragon. Yugi isn't the only one with powers.--Helix-king (talkcontribs) 12:21, April 13, 2012 (UTC)


Yami Yugi/Atem? Or Yugi himself?

Oh, and if it's Atem...his will power is so great that in the final dual, when foccused through the puzzle, it ALTERED REALITY, causing him to draw the cards he needed. If Yugi didn't know Atem as well as he did, Atem would have won, as the only reason Yugi won was because he had Monster Reborn in that casket. Yubel is good and all, but... Hell, in Bonds Beyond Time Yusei called YUgi the greatest dualist to ever pick up a deck.

By the way, Yugi can get the dark magician out with cards like Magic Curtain.

  • And Jaden would just use the Power of the Supreme King. And then Yusei would use the Crimson Dragon. Yugi isn't the only one with powers. By the way, Jaden can just fuse, and Yusei can synch, again, yugi isn't the only one who can summon his Ace monster in one turn.--Helix-king (talkcontribs) 12:24, April 13, 2012 (UTC)
Remind ya that Yugi do have "Dark Paladin", which is of course can't be Summon if that magic card managed to pull "Dark Magician" from Deck for half of Life Points. Judai have "Elemental HERO Neos", which is regular Vanilla Monster while Yusei's only one with Synchro Monster (which is extreme-naturally) --FredCat 12:29, April 13, 2012 (UTC)


To everyone who is saying Yugi would win because he has the god cards, take a first look at the question you obviously did not finish reading. It says Yugi does not have and/or is allowed to use the god cards. Pretty sure Jadon beat Yugi's deck without god cards. inb4 possessed copycat doesn't count he used his best cards and still lost.

Yusei would probably win as the newer cards become more and more OP so his synchro deck would thrash Jadon's fusion deck, and Yugi is super obselete without the god cards and his mystical bs, so in a fair fight it would be 1.Yusei 2.Jadon 3.Yugi. Sorry to burst your bubble but thats how the game works. —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) 03:08, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

First of all, many here are falling into the argumentative fallacy of judging Yugi's deck, Jaden's deck, and Yusei's deck as each stood during the characters' respective series. This really isn't a fair comparison, as the game changed a great deal between Yugi's time and Jaden's time, and arguably changed even more between Jaden's time and Yusei's time. Despite this, at several different points in time (Yami) Yugi is clearly shown to be the best duelist of the three featured duelists: 1. In the final episodes of Gx, Yugi managed to match Jaden move for move, and had 3500 life points remaining to Jaden's 1600 life points when Yami Yugi ultimately came took Yugi's place and brought out Slifer (a move Yugi himself was easily skilled enough to make, except that Yugi's never shown to control the God Cards). Also, note that during this duel Yami Yugi is still considerably better than Yugi, as the duel takes place between Battle City and Doma; thus, however well Yugi dueled in this duel, Yami Yugi could have dueled even considerably better. Also, because the duel takes place between Battle City and Doma, this deck which clearly beat Jaden easily (Jaden admits as much when he states he'll get much stronger and duel Yugi again) is arguably less powerful than decks Yami Yugi and Yugi utilize in later arcs of the anime. I'd also like to defend Yugi's use of the God Cards, as he earned the cards by winning them off of powerful opponents, and as they serve to level the playing field somewhat in a duel between Jaden's deck and Yugi's deck; Yugi's deck is naturally weaker because the card game is much newer in his time, and thus considerably less support exists for the archetypes he wields, effectively stopping him from building a more coherent deck. 2. In the recent movie, Yami Yugi shows himself to be a powerhouse even among duelists with much more advanced decks by managing to summon both of his ace monsters, destroy Paradox's apparent ace monster, get Yusei control of Yusei's ace monster, and stop Paradox's use of his monster's ability to lower the protagonists' monsters' ATK, all in one turn. (Not only this, but he shows himself to be a skilled duelist without ever using his Egyptian God cards.) 3.) At the Yu-Gi-Oh! WCQ 2011, there was a simulated duel between Yugi and Yusei in which Yusei used the most current form of Yusei's deck and Yugi used a deck similar to his Grand Championship deck; Yugi outdueled Yusei throughout most of the duel, and ultimately won without too much difficulty and without having to bring out his God Cards, even after Yusei successfully brought out Shooting Star Dragon. I considered both portrayed dueling styles to be relatively faithful to the source material, although I suppose neither duelist really used trap cards as much as he did in the anime. 4.) In Gx, Yugi is still undisputed King of Games, and even in 5ds, Yugi is still well known as a great duelist, while I seem to recall Yusei didn't know who Jaden was when the two met. Generally, the impression I always got from the anime was that Jaden was a great duelist because he and his deck shared a special connection due to his powers as a spirit duelist. Likewise, in 5ds I always got the impression that Yusei's skill as a duelist was a byproduct of his status as a general genius. Throughout the anime, though, (Yami) Yugi's portrayed as the King of Games, the person who's simply better strategically at games than anyone else (although we usually only talk about the game DM); he's just innately skilled at DM in a way that no one else in the show is. Therefore, in-continuity Yugi will out-think and out-duel any opponent, including Jaden and Yusei.

In real life (assessing deck quality in real life), I still give the win to Yugi. Here's why: By my count, in season four of Gx Jaden uses some 112 different cards in his main deck, including untold numbers of cards he can really only use in one situation. Were someone to use that deck in real life, they'd be likely to have an incredible number of dead draws, and thus lose due to simply not being able to defend their life points effectively. For the World Riding Grand Prix, Yusei uses over 90 cards; for a deck based focusing completely on Synchro summoning, this makes it altogether possible that one could go turns and turns without drawing a single tuner. Yugi's deck may be slower than those of the other protagonists, but with many fewer cards, he's much more likely to be able to do something with any given hand than either of his fellow protagonists, meaning he might well summon a powerful monster to defeat his opponent before his opponent can get the right cards in the opponent's hand to effectively attack or defend. (This whole analysis rests on the fact that a limit to the number of cards in one's deck doesn't seem to exist after DM, in that I can't ever recall such a limit even being eluded to in Gx or 5ds. Were we to enforce a 60 card limit, Yusei and Jaden would have to get rid of the cards not integral to their main strategies, the same cards that give their decks the decks' oft-mentioned flexibility, mentioned many times on this thread as the reason why Yusei's the superior duelist.)-- (talk) 07:31, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

My Say on the Matter

In real life, Yusei would win (assuming these are the anime decks we are talking about). His Deck has the most functional cards in any situation, especially since he has Tuner monsters and Synchro Monsters.

Unfortunately, Jaden's Elemental HEROes are reliant upon Polymerization (he doesn't use King of Swamp), Fusion Gate, and their specific cards like "Spark Blaster" and "Clay Charge (although there are good cards like Neo-Spacian Grand Mole, Hero Blast, etc.). Remember that Super Polymerization is worthless without his manga Deck Fusion Monsters: Elemental HERO The Shining, Elemental Hero Gaia, etc. Even in the manga, they sucked, cuz E-Hero Ocean's only eff was the ability to attack directly if "Umi" was on field, and Stratos had NO eff. Once his combos get off though, they are good.

Yugi plain and simple sucks. His deck doesnt even support an archetype or central theme. Often, 1 particular card in his Deck only works with 1-3 other cards in his Deck, which would make them dead draws in normal life. Yusei and Jaden have no problem with this though.

Because yugi uses Staples bro. He may not have a archetype, but He has every good cad we still use today.--Helix-king (talkcontribs) 22:04, May 9, 2012 (UTC)


YUGI would win because he is the king of games. In the gx anime yugi won against jaden and yugi would in against yusei cause I saw in youtube that yugi won. Heres a link:

All bias aside...

All bias aside...

Every duelist has a repercussion

Yugi. While Yugi Muto is the King of Games, some of his ace cards don't do what they really do in the OCG. Yugi's deck is what you call a strategy deck, meaning it was a strategy deck designed to win against any deck he came across. HOWEVER, that being said, if it is implied that it is Yugi from where the show left off, then no. He be at a serious disadvantage to Yusei, seeing as he has a entirely new deck that Yugi has never seen before. BUT if he updated his deck as time went on, I couldn't imagine what he could be capable of. Yugi did have a counter for everything, but he also "Willed his fate" and all that kind of stuff. All the magical bull***t involved in his playing kinda makes me think that if reality was involved that Yugi probably wouldn't win. Depending on where he strategies his deck to revolve around would also be influential, as he did have a lot of cards that would make it simple for an OTK. Including Creator of Light, Exodia, Knight of Destiny, etc. Yugi defiantly knew what he was doing.

Jaden. I know a lot of people talk badly about this character and I really don't see why. He was a really good duelist and he was very realistic with his playing style, except for the occasional top decking. While it is more believable that Yugi "Willing his fate" it's still hard to believe that he always got what he needed. Now, the Elemental Heroes have a lot of potential and so do that Neo Spacians. Put together with Super Polymerization, he could rob every singer character of their best monster. There for if we are talking about Season 4 Jaden Yuki, I give him an enormous edge. Every card he used had a fair effect that did everything it was it did. Jaden is a very strong and tactical duelist and he DID know what he was doing. He was absolutely incredible with his fusion combos and traps. Hero decks are still in, and they have a lot of normal monsters, but even with that disadvantage, they have a lot of cards to go with them. I really don't understand why so many people take away from his dueling. He is actually a very powerful duelist. Yugi did beat the Egyptian Gods in one turn, and Jaden beat the Sacred Beasts. Don't take anything from this duelist. I think he could give Yugi a very good run for his money.

Yusei. Yusei is another incredible duelist. Like Yugi and Jaden, he managed to defeat the Nordic Gods. The difference between him and the other characters is that he doesn't rely on top decking or any of that. Every card in his deck relies on each other. That is one very powerful deck. I saw an episode of 5D's where he spammed the field like crazy and Synchro summoned twice in the same turn with like 8 or 10 monsters. Yusei was very tactical and his strategies are absolutely mind blowing. However, he is very reliant on Stardust Dragon and the other Synchros. Yusei can only win if he Synchro summons, but his deck is set up to not fail to do so. Yusei has a lot of cards that not only keep his enemies at bay, but also that keep him in a highly advantaged spot. If it was a turbo duel, no doubt Yusei would win as his deck is built for that. Also, he is very calculating, always seeming to duel out of a corner. His skills have never been questioned, and he is the captain of the Team 5D's. He always seems to have some combo to take out his enemies, making him a lot like an updated Yugi.

Yuma. I'm not sure if we're talking about him or not, but I will make it quick. He's rash and not very strategical. Every duel I've seen him in, he wasn't doing so good and I don't really even like XYZ summoning. I feel like it's kinda pointless because most of the monsters aren't really that great. He doesn't really seem to have any type of strategy to his deck, but I think he has a lot of Warriors and that's about it. Honestly I see potential in him, but for now, he's kinda just there.

So who do I think would win?

Jaden=Yusei>Yugi > Yuma


Well, if I put all of them against each other, they all have strengths and weaknesses. Jaden and Yusei are about the same level, but if I had to pick a winner, I would give the slight edge to Jaden, because even though the other main characters have dependencies on Dark Magician, Neos, Stardust and I guess Utopia this actually puts Jaden on top. Why? Because he has other fusions he can summon. If you take out all ability to summon the main trump card, Jaden has other, easily accessible power houses. Flame Wingman. Shining Flare Wingman. and Even the generic fusions from the manga. Plus as mentioned before, Super Polymerization puts a huge edge on the competition. So that is why I put Jaden at the top of the list.

Yusei, a close call against Jaden, has the ability to Synchro summon and evolve his monsters and also to spam the field. Plus almost every card in his deck can take Yugi's. But his victories do seem to be slightly illogical because toward the end of season 2, they were heavily based on luck. I have seen the Yugi vs Yusei battle live, but the b.s. effect of Card of Sanctity helped a lot. So, I think Yusei is better in a realistic duel with no "Heart of the Cards" or "Willing the Fate" and all that nonsense. Yusei and Jaden I think are able to beat each other and that is why I put them at equal levels.

Yugi is REALLY close. Excluding all his anime powers and cheating card effects, he is a really strong duelist. I don't believe in banned cards either, but I won't go into that. So, Yugi is good because though his cards were kinda random, he did have strong combo's and like I said, capabilities for OTK's. HOWEVER, though this does seem like an advantage, all of his OTK's require more than 1 card and there for puts him at another disadvantage. Also, I do know he has the gods, but against Yusei, good luck getting out 3 tributes for all 3 Egyptian gods. I guess he could fuse them from his hand into Creator of Light, but this also seems like it maybe a bit unrealistic as in the show, there were only 3 of them and getting all 3 in hand and a polymerization is sort of unlikely. Not to mention, Yugi's deck takes too long to use by today's standards. But I do give him props, as he did defeat all 3 of the gods in one turn, however that didn't win him the duel, so I put him under the first 2. (NOTE: it is never shown the outcome of Yugi VS Jaden, but if you ask me, Jaden also sort of threw the duel if he lost and if he didn't, he could have had facedowns or just straight up overpowered Slifer. No matter what the outcome, Jaden had a reason for attacking Slifer, so that duel really doesn't really stand as a good basis for this forum.)

Yuma. XYZ summon's are kind of a waste of monsters for this duel in reality. Jaden could take it out with Super Polymerization. Yusei could use Shooting Star Dragon to attack more than once. And Yugi would use Dark Hole. So that is why Yuma is at the very bottom.

This is my opinion and I would love to speak with anyone who agrees or disagrees. Thanks for reading.

Alright, I'm going to split this into three sections: response to the previous comment, what would happen in the anime, and what would happen in real life.
Response: First of all, Yugi doesn't have "cheating card effects". The cards he played debuted in manga/anime and were then changed when they were made into real life cards; therefore, Yugi's cards having the effects they do is not the result of the creators changing cards to fit his uses, or of him cheating. Second, based on the fact that Jaden hated it when Chazz - while dueling as "Ojamanjoume" - threw a duel with Jaden, as well as the fact that even as he had a great time dueling Yugi, Jaden happily tried to strike a finishing blow against Yugi, I conclude that Jaden did not throw his duel with Yugi. Furthermore, Jaden's statement that he'd become much stronger and then fight Yugi again clearly implies that Jaden lost. I've never made sense of Neos attacking Slifer, during that last turn... Oh well. I just pretend that attack wasn't shown. Anyway, back on topic. While Yusei does rely mainly on Stardust Dragon, he would have other cards to turn to if he couldn't use Stardust Dragon: he can use the powerful "Junk" or "Warrior" synchro monster series. Yugi really doesn't rely on Dark Magician exclusively, if one looks at his duels; he easily and frequently brings out powerful monsters such as Dark Magician Girl, Summoned Skull, Buster Blader and Black Luster Soldier. In fact, Yugi's deck is interesting in that only some of his strategies revolve around Dark Magician, leaving him with strategies revolving around the Poker Knights, the Magnet monsters, or any number of other series when his magicians fail. While Yuma tends to use Utopia and its evolution, he does have plenty of other powerful Xyz monsters he could use in its place, including the Xyz Djinns, Gagaga Gunman, Heroic Champion - Excalibur, and some of the stronger Numbers (think Shock Master). I'm going to leave Yuma out of the discussion after this paragraph, but I'll just briefly suggest that you're selling Yuma and Xyz monsters a little short. With the right Xyz monster, Yuma could do some serious damage to the other protagonists. (For example, if Yuma managed to Xyz Summon Shock Master, he could activate its effect to negate the other protagonists' monster effects, a move that would debilitate both Jaden and Yusei's decks. Although Yugi's deck would be less affected, giving Yugi the chance to destroy Shock Master, Yugi - being the master strategist he is - would probably just fortify his Spell/Trap defenses against Yuma and help take out Jaden and Yusei; neither Yusei nor Jaden could survive three turns without monster effects when pitted against master duelists like Yugi and Astral (anime Jaden - the one with Super Polymerization - couldn't use Super Polymerization against Shock Ruler because he has no shown fusion monsters that require an E-Hero and a light monster). After both other duelists were taken out, Yugi's superior strategical skills would certainly guarantee him victory against Yuma and Astral. Given that Yuma's deck allows for relatively easy swarming of level four monsters, I have now convinced myself that the following scenario would be likely if the four protagonists fought: Yusei and Jaden quickly demonstrate their reliance on monster effects; Astral instructs Yuma to block said effects with Shock Ruler; Jaden and Yusei are unable to use their decks' true strengths, and are consequently eliminated; Yugi defeats Yuma and Astral to take the win.) Anyway, I consider Yugi's win over Yusei in the live battle to be reasonable, because even though Yugi used a number of very powerful spell/trap card effects, those powerful effects are juxtaposed with all of the powerful effect monsters and techniques (think Synchro Summoning) Yusei has that Yugi doesn't have access to. That said, I think in the anime Yusei would have had a set trap to activate in that final turn, saving him and letting the duel continue.
Anime: As demonstrated above, it's very likely that Yugi defeated Jaden in the anime. Furthermore, that duel likely takes place between Battle City and Doma, meaning that Yugi and Yami Yugi still got considerably better later in DM. It thus seems that, should Jaden from the end of the anime have fought (Yami)Yugi not long before the two were separated, he would have been even more outclassed. Yugi and Yusei would have been a very close battle, given that - as you observed - their dueling style is very similar. One thing that is accurately reflected in the live battle is that (Yami) Yugi is a careful and perceptive duelist. His traps would stop Yusei from winning, and he would quickly learn and counter all of Yusei's strategies. Yusei would have trouble countering Yugi's strategies because, as Jaden noted in his duel with Yugi, Yugi uses a wide variety of very different strategies. At the end of the day, Yusei basically has one strategy: synchro summon and activate the resulting monster's effect. Thus, Yugi would be winning, although the match would be close. If the match was a friendly one, Yusei would lose, but if it mattered that Yusei won, he would activate a new level of clear mind ("Final Nexus Clear Mind") to "[something] accel synchro summon" a new Stardust evolution that has exactly the necessary effects to win him the duel.
Real life: If we cut down each duelist's deck to forty cards while keeping the most important cards in the deck (what we might call a model deck), Yusei has a functional synchro summon deck. A model Yugi deck can't compete with a model Yusei deck. If Jaden had the generic E-Hero monsters, he could use Super Polymerization to optimal effect and fuse his E-Hero and Neo-Spacian monsters to bring out those powerful generic E-Heroes. That would make a model Jaden deck a match for a model Yusei deck. The problem is, without those E-Heroes, Jaden uses two different archetypes, with only a few cards/strategies that connect the two, making dead draws almost inevitable. The model Yusei deck wins. If we look at the duelists' actual decks, Yugi's got a good chance of winning: with around 40 cards in his deck (and many of those staples rather than cards that only support one monster/archetype), he can probably make effective use of the cards in his hand. Jaden and Yusei, by contrast, use so many different situational cards in such massive decks (90-120 cards) that their probability of drawing cards that work with each other is relatively low. The versatility of synchro summoning helps Yusei out some in this category, but Jaden's two barely compatible archetypes only exacerbates the issue of having many too many cards. Out of the real decks, Yugi's deck most likely wins, and Yusei's deck could win if Yusei got somewhat lucky draws.-- (talk) 19:29, August 12, 2012 (UTC)

(All Bias Aside) Poster response: I really appreciate and respect your response. I'm actually tired of hearing "He wins because this guy sucks." Anyway, I have to disagree with you're reasoning of not using super polymerization with a light monster because in real life there is "The Shining" and he is powerful as it is. While I do qualify every one of your points, and they did make me think, I have to disagree with you saying Yugi would come out on top. For one reason only. Because his deck revolves mostly on Dark Magician, he doesn't exactly have the best strategy in the game. Compared to the other decks, he has a lot of random cards that don't necessarily go together. Don't get me wrong, in the last season of the original series, Little Yugi's deck was one of my favorites. But, his deck was all over the place. If I was to bring a deck like that to a tournament and face a staple of Jaden's or Yusei's deck, I would probably lose pretty badly. GRANTED if you included things to strengthen the Dark Magician strategy such as tokens, multiple copies of DM, and DMG, and DM Knight, Sorcerer of Dark Magic, and the Silent Magicians, with a lot of Spell castor cards, then I see why Yugi would win. Especially with the devastating effects of the synchros as well. As I was saying about Jaden, Heroes have a lot of support, and multiple strategies are able to be done with it. I agree with you that taking out card effects would defuse his deck. But Super Polymerization would probably be a trump card and using multiple copies of this card would probably leave Jaden as the last man standing. Yugi's deck would most likely be the only deck to counter this as his deck was more universal in attribute. I don't really get why everyone says he couldn't hold his own in this duel though. As for Yusei, he's powerful, but as I said before, removing monsters from play would probably screw his deck over. BUT his ability to spam the field would be an amazing feat that neither one of the other two duelist's could really do. So now that you've given me some stuff to to think about I think I would actually put the order like this. Jaden=Yugi<Yusei and here's why. Yugi has a powerful deck, but I think it's the way the cards fall that would determine who wins between Jaden and Yugi. Yusei, though he is a powerful duelist, may have trouble defeating Jaden or Yugi because taking Stardust Dragon with Super Polymerization, or just automatically winning the duel like Yugi did, would be a hard thing for Yusei to counter. I still say that in real life, with a Jaden deck that has been stacked for a Super Polymerization strategy, Jaden wins.

In the Anime: I would have to give the edge to Yugi. One reason is that marketing wouldn't look so good if Yugi lost a duel to his "cheap imitations". But aside from that, I think Yusei could also take Yugi on because of his ability to spam the field and get his best monster out in one turn. Jaden has plenty of fusions and some you don't even think about, Thunder Giant for example. With a devastating ability+ Sky scraper. All I'm saying is that between all of them (all good duelists) it's kinda just how the writers choose to make it happen. I'm not sure about Yugi's victory in GX. I know it's implied, but I would need to see it again. Potential for a great duel between the three of them seems like a really fun thing to see, but ultimately I would think Yugi would win. Nothing beats a classic right?

  • In my opinion, I think Yusei would win. He has shown the capability of beating monsters equal to the Egyptian Gods and as you said, he is the most strategic and fast of all the characters. Yugi and Jaden to be fair are ALMOST equals. Both duelists have an incredible amount of variety in their decks, essentially a card for every situation, and also Yugi has some of the strongest cards in history, not just the gods but BLS-Envoy, DMoC, etc. While he is not as fast as Jaden, he has more power. Now, with Jaden (anime), he doesn't use the omni-heroes. The closest I know to an omni-hero he has is his Neos/Warrior fusion that appeared in Bonds. And Manga Jaden doesn't have Super Fusion. While Jaden's attack strength isn't as high as Yugi's in most situations, he has speed and effect monsters to his advantage. If Yugi does manage to summon an Egyptian God, well, then Jaden is toast. The Sacred Beasts are strong, but the gods can easily beat them. I can agree on Yuma though, his deck does have Numbers (which can only be destroyed by Numbers), but against the other three that won't go very far. He doesn't even use his best Numbers, he only uses No 39 and N0 C39. Of course the Zexal weapons are strong, but by the time he can get one out (and hell, by the time he gets to less than 500 lps to even summon No. C39 it would already be too late. Yuma is the worst out of the 4 (that is part of his character), but considering how strong Yugi, Jaden, and Yusei were at the end of their series, that's really not saying much. Jamesfury (talkcontribs) 05:59, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

I think Yugi is intended to be a better strategist than Yusei, if the movie is anything to show.-- (talk) 22:37, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

In real life i think 100% yusei will win against jaden and atem. yusei can summon any-number of synchro monsters on the field or attack multiple monsters in a single turn and can create an OTK or FTK that strategy atem and jaden can't never do on their decks. jaden has full of fusion spell's super polymerization can only have 3 copies don't you dare there are many yusei cards that can destroy it while it is face down but yusei's spell is not the same as jaden and jaden trap's are weak compared to the traps of yusei and yugi's deck is very slow to summon more monsters compare to yusei so it's impossible that yugi can defeat yusei. yugi has many card effects than destroy's cards but stardust can negate them and it will become more strong when he become stardust/assaultmode you can negate any cards so yusei is the best and better.

In anime i don't know is up to kazuki takahashi who he want's to win now that settles.

(Real life-Yusei for the win. Anime-I don't know.) (That's how it is..............)

I haven't watched yu-gi-oh in a long time, but im pretty sure jaden would win then yugi then yusei. I don't think yusei really ever fought in 5ds. Yugi only plays a little so she would never beat jaden in a duel.

It would depend on factors

First, it would depend what part of the series they're in. Since Jaden is going to Duel Academy throughout GX, I doubt he would win if it were Jaden at the start, but he'd probably hold out well if he was at the end of the series. Similarly, if Yugi were at Duelist Kingdom point when this happened, he wouldn't stand a chance, as Duelist Kingdom was just a bunch of insane, made-up moves. Battle City or past it, he would most likely hold out well. Also, we never learn the outcome of Yugi and Jaden's duel in the GX finale. However, with Yusei in the mix, it would be hard for them, as they are fighting a future deck("Synchro-What?"), and wouldn't have counters for Synchros, but if they could stop Yusei from swarming the field, then Yusei probably would have a much harder time. Also, what cards they have will matter as well. First, we should talk about the cards they wouldn't be caught dead without. Yugi has his Dark Magician, a powerful monster, but the tributes are something to think about, as with Yusei's swarming, it would be hard for Yugi to gain the two monsters needed to summon his Dark Magician, and also, even then, nothing could stop Jaden or Yusei from using an effect to destroy it, as Dark Magician is just a normal monster. The tributes problem should also be considered for the God Cards, if he has them. Also, Slifer requires hand control, and since Yugi is facing 2 at once, he may not be able to keep up the hand count to support Slifer. Obelisk is probably the best bet on God Cards, but even then, the right monsters could defeat it, such as God NEOS, as Jaden could use it's ability to make it stronger than Obelisk, especially with Flame Scarab, which can have it's ability being more useful for ATK gain to God NEOS, due to having 2 opponents. Back to the Gods, Ra is also a tough one to talk about, since it has many abilities, such as it's ATK being the sum of the monsters Yugi tributes, which means Yugi would need the right monsters to survive, but then the ATK-LP transfer is another difficult decision, as then a direct damage effect would remove him from the game. Jaden also has a variety of cards he couldn't be seen dead without. As mentioned before, God NEOS is a good choice. Jaden's Fusion-based deck does allow a variety of choices for him, so he could be prepared to counter many moves, for example, if he used Skyscraper, it could be easy to destroy Stardust and Dark Magician with either Flame Wingman or NEOS, and then the added damage from Flame Wingman would be enough to nearly defeat Yusei and Yugi in one shot. Also, let's say Jaden was still allowed his Pot Of Greed, then that would be extra drawing power, giving him easier Contact Fusions for NEOS, or better Fusion Material for normal E-HEROS as well. And of course, Winged Kuriboh, a card that could help Jaden stall, and he could even use the Winged Kuriboh LV 10 to trick whoever attacks it. And finally, Yusei. His Stardust is easy for him to play, but counters for it have already been brought up, so it may not work as well as it usually does. And the various tuners he has are powerful with their swarm effects, which allow me to look into a hypothetical scenario, let's say Yusei was able to get a God from Yugi into his hand(pretend the Egyptian incarnation stuff doesn't work in this case), his swarm effects would make it easy to gain the tributes for it, of course, it would depend on what God he used. If Yusei played Ra, it wouldn't work out, as he swarms with weak monsters. If Yusei used Slifer, it would be difficult to decide, as Yusei appears to switch between drawing power, and discarding from the hand. If Yusei played Obelisk, it would be his best bet, as it comes with high power instantly, and it doesn't weaken either, and the swarming can be a perfect compliment to Obelisk's ability to sacrifice 2 monsters and destroy every monster the opponents control, and inflict 4000 damage. And also, the Scrap-Iron Scarecrow is a very useful card, as he can block once per turn with it.

Despite all these, it would really be who draws the best cards at the best times, and makes the best choices. (And my Yusei+God idea is just waiting for a fanfic now, isn't it?)-- (talk) 21:11, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

With the criteria, I'd have to vote Yusei. However, that's a statement that reflects nothing of character skill. Quite frankly, the farther in the series you go, the better cards get, the more easily you can use cards (granted they also become less flexible, as most cards are very specialized) and the more old strategies become obsolete. However, Yugi and Jaden are both far more skilled than Yusei. Yes, I just said Yami is skilled. Everybody should re-watch Yugi vs Seto Kaiba in the finals of Battle City. Unlike a lot of other duels, that wasn't topdecking or godhanding, that was being CREATIVE. Even after the gods simultaneously destroyed each other, Yugi was left with a less than decent hand and managed to pull a great play against Kaiba's really powerful hand. While Jaden shows a mid-to-high level of skill across the board, especially starting when his Neo-Spacians were introduced, Yami has shown a level of experience and planning that clearly outclasses Jaden and Yusei. With their current Decks? Yusei. If Yugi and Jaden were able to reconstruct their Decks with new cards, however, I think Yugi would win. (talk) 23:48, December 1, 2012 (UTC)

ok the way i see it turning out is in a draw because

1-yusei uses tuner monster witch jaden and yugi have no experience in

2-jaden uses contact fusion (which nobody else in the entire anime uses)

3-yugi has the 3 egyption god cards witch are very powerful

4-in terms of effect monsters they all have a wide variety witch can help them out

5-in terms of trap cards yusei and jaden clearly have more thus have an advantage

in countering where as yugi has the advantage in setting up the play with his many

spell cards

6-looking at there trump cards (dark magician, E.H neos & stardust dragon) yusei's monster would win with its effect in a head on battle between the 3 , however this is not certain because of all the specially designed cards for dark magician and E.H neos

7-no when it comes to power monsters yugi would win as his egyptian god cards have high attack points (don't recall yusei or jaden having a monster with 4000atk points)

8-strategy wise

  yugi proffers an all out atk style (all out attack with what ever means)
  jaden uses more of a counter battle style (using effect cards that help boost    ,         save or gain new monsters e.g "a hero emegance")
  yusei tends to use an effect style (e.g nitro worrier destroys a card in def it     .         atcks again)

9-as i said before jaden and yugi do not no of tuner monsters and don't really have

 a counter for them but this does not mean they are at a complete disadvantage

since yusei's most powerful monsters are sencros he would fall at a disadvantage if

he was not able to summon it

jaden has the advantage with his contact fusion as like yusei there is no way to counter it but if some how his neos was removed from play this would put him at a disadvantage also

yugi's deck does not contain the new type of cards (sencro & contact fusion) so he would be at a disadvantage however the advantage to this is there is no way to cripple his game play (except by removing his trump card from play)

10-and the best reason for it ending in a draw is that lets face it you wouldn't really want just one of them to win (lol gonna get all deep on you now) see if just 1 of them had to win it would mean only 1 style was right and that the other styles other cards other combinations are wrong and lets face it thats what makes the game amazing the fact that there are so many different styles , combos and cards

anyway thats just my top 10 opinions on why it would be a DRAW (talk) 23:12, January 6, 2013 (UTC)

definitely jaden

Consider it yami decks is good with little reliance on Other cards but the hods are his ace and they are Not indestructible as everyone thinks they're a bit Overated actually. Yugi moto deck wouldn't stand A chance and don't go on about exodia the Chance of drawing them is minimal same with yamis

Ad for yuesi deck it good but the synchro monsters Could be destroyed easy enough and without duel Runners even with he could not take jaden or yami He just doesn't have enough skill

As for jaden although his deck relies on fusion he can Use contact fusion this combined with the fact that Jadens monsters have special abilities as well as nearly Equal attack power will allow him to come first

So it would go 1 jaden 2yami 3 yuesi under certain circumstances he may come second But unlikely 4 yugi
