Phantom God Beast




Divine-Beast (Japanese: げんしんじゅう Genshinjū "Phantom God Beast"), called God (Japanese: かみ Kami) in the manga, is a Type used for the Egyptian God Cards: "Slifer the Sky Dragon", "Obelisk the Tormentor", and "The Winged Dragon of Ra" (including their illegal original prints as well as "The Winged Dragon of Ra - Sphere Mode" and "The Winged Dragon of Ra - Immortal Phoenix").

In Yu-Gi-Oh! R and in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime, the Wicked Gods and the "Aesir", respectively, are also Divine-Beast-Type monsters, unlike their real-life counterparts.


Prior to the release of the legal prints of "Obelisk the Tormentor", "Slifer the Sky Dragon", and "The Winged Dragon of Ra", Divine-Beast was not a legal Type. With their release, it can now be declared with cards like "DNA Surgery".

For many years there was no explicit support for Divine-Beast monsters, though "Ra's Disciple" and "Holactie the Creator of Light" both support the primary three monsters with this original Type by name. Additionally, because all monsters with the original Type of Divine-Beast are also DIVINE-Attribute, they are also supported by cards that support DIVINE, such as "Mound of the Bound Creator" and "The True Name".

Duelist Pack: Duelists of Gloom included the first support for Divine-Beast monsters; "Reactor Slime" Special Summons two "Slime Tokens", but prevents the player from Normal or Special Summoning non-Divine-Beast monsters for the rest of the turn, while "Millennium Revelation" allows the player to send any Divine-Beast monster from the hand to the GY to search "Monster Reborn".

Prismatic God Box also included support for "Slifer the Sky Dragon" and "Obelisk the Tormentor", while also making Divine-Beast monsters easier to summon by using "Soul Crossing" to Tribute Summon using the opponent's monster(s).
