When Bakura, King of Thieves invaded the Pharaoh's palace after plundering Akhenamkhanen's tomb, he engaged in a ka battle with the priests. During the battle, Akhenamkhanen's son, Atem, heard his father's spirit uttering "justice lies in the name of the gods". With that, Atem managed to summon Obelisk to fight Diabound, forcing Bakura to retreat.
3000 years later, Maximillion J. Pegasus created cards depicting the three Egyptian Gods, for his game Duel Monsters. However the souls of the Gods came to dwell in the cards, making them powerful weapons. On realizing this, Pegasus regarded their creation as one of his greatest mistakes. He tried to destroy the God Cards, but could not bring himself to do it, so he had the Egyptian supreme council of antiquities bury the cards in different locations in the Valley of the Kings. The Ghouls stole the "Slifer the Sky Dragon" and "The Sun Dragon Ra" cards. However the Egyptian supreme council of antiquities was able to prevent them finding the "The God of the Obelisk" card. Ishizu Ishtar, from the council, later gave it to Seto Kaiba, so that he would host the Battle City tournament to retrieve the other two.
Kaiba used "The God of the Obelisk" in many of his Duels in the Battle City preliminaries. In his quarter final Duel against Ishizu Ishtar, Ishizu had used the Millennium Necklace to see in the future. She played the Duel in accordance to her foresight, which would result in her destroying "The God of the Obelisk" and winning. However after seeing a vision of Priest Seto and Kisara, Kaiba felt compelled to Summon "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and did so by Sacrificing "Obelisk", allowing him to win the Duel instead.
When Kaiba was defeated by Dark Yugi, he gave him the card "The God of the Obelisk", which Dark Yugi needed to obtain his memories.
"Obelisk" was used in Dark Yugi's Duel against Yako Tenma, being Summoned with "Monster Reborn" after being discarded to Special Summon "The Tricky". Dark Yugi used its effect to increase its ATK to infinity in an attempt to defeat "The Wicked Avatar", which had taken "Obelisk's" form. Dark Yugi then used "Divine Evolution" to increase its Hierachy to the same level as "Avatar", causing "Obelisk" to ascend to its "Obelisk The Progenitor" form, allowing both God monsters to destroy one another.
Dark Yugi used Obelisk against Yugi Mutou during the Ceremonial Battle. Yugi defeated Obelisk, then defeated Dark Yugi.
