Strongest Yugioh Monster Card

When I wrote this post last year, Yubel the Ultimate Nightmare was in my opinion, the strongest monster in Yugioh. I still think Yubel the Ultimate Nightmare is the strongest monster in Yugioh in terms of effect and efficiency, however, it isn’t the strongest in terms of stats. 0 attack and defense points? Those are the weakest stats a monster can have. So what monster is the best in terms of high attack, high defense, and has an adequate effect? What is the strongest Yugioh monster card? In some recent comments I have gotten, Armityle, the Chaos Phantom and Dragon Master Knight are supposedly the strongest Yugioh monster cards (with the criteria above). However, I don’t agree.

Though Armityle also has 0 attack and defense points, his effect gives him 10,000 extra attack points. A lot of people would say that’s amazing, but I do not concur. That effect only applies in the controller’s turn. Because that is his only effect, Armityle could be easily beaten in your foe’s turn, no doubt about it. If you want to go as far as to waste the three Yugioh Sacred Beasts in order to summon Armityle, you better have an arsenal of traps to protect him. Plus, just summoning Armityle is difficult. You have to get all three Sacred Beasts on your field, which is nearly impossible given the fact that each of their summoning requirements are so hard to fulfill.

Dragon Master Knight is a much better monster than Armityle, however, he has his down side as well. While DMK has better stats as well as a better effect, it is much harder to summon. Some of you are going, “What? DMK is way easier to play. Just use Dragon’s Mirror or Future Fusion!” I wish summoning Dragon Master Knight was that simple. DMK is a fusion of a fusion. To play him, you first have to get Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, then fuse Black Luster Soldier. One fusion might be easy to pull off, but your opponent will not let you fuse a monster again. So many things can go wrong when you play a double-fusion monster, especially with DMK. If your foe destroys one Blue Eyes White Dragon, summoning DMK is going to be a nightmare. If your foe destroys your Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, it’s over. If you foe destroys Black Luster Soldier or even your Black Luster Ritual card, you can say goodbye to summoning DMK.

I think that Five Headed Dragon is the strongest Yugioh monster card statistically. It has 5000 attack and defense points, plus it has a decent effect. F.H.D cannot be destroyed in battle by any monster except a light attribute monster. If you have a Dragon deck and own the spell card, Dragon’s Mirror (a pretty easy to find card), F.H.D is very easy to summon. Easy to play, adequate effect, and  phenomenal stats, Five Headed Dragon is one of best beat-down monsters in Yugioh.
