World Championship[edit]

During World Championship tournaments, all cards are automatically set to their lowest allowed status in any region. (For example, a card that is on the Semi-Limited list in one region but the Limited list in another will be Limited on the World Championship banlist, and a card that is Forbidden in one region but Unlimited in another will be Forbidden.)

However, in addition to any cards that are Forbidden on either the OCG or TCG lists, several other cards are also made Forbidden:

Special Rule[edit]

At some (but not all[citation needed]) Japan-specific tournaments and World Championships, a select few additional cards have been Forbidden under a Special Rule. "Self-Destruct Button" allows players to legally stall for time by forcing DRAWs and replaying Duels, while the remaining cards all allow a player to suddenly gain a large amount of LP during their opponent's turn by paying a no-longer-relevant cost, allowing them to abuse the sudden death win condition rules if a game's time limit runs out.

"Self-Destruct Button" and "Rainbow Life" were Forbidden by Special Rule at Japan's World Championship Qualifiers 2014.[1]

"Self-Destruct Button", "Rainbow Life", "Emergency Provisions", "Mystik Wok", and "Tri-and-Guess" were Forbidden by Special Rule at the 2014-2016 World Championships;[2] the 2018, 2019, and 2022 Japan Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series,[3][4][5] and a Remote Duel tournament in Japan in 2020.[6]

Anime and manga[edit]

During the Battle City arc it is mentioned that cards that directly damage the player, such as "Hinotama", "Meteor of Destruction", and "Raigeki", are Forbidden.[7]

When taken to the Virtual World, the Egyptian God cards were excluded from the virtual card database, since Lector noted they are forbidden cards.[8]

A handful of other cards are noted by characters as "Forbidden" in the anime, including "Golden Castle of Stromberg" in Yu-Gi-Oh!,[9] "Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End"[10] and "Infernalvania" in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX,[11] "Gate Blocker" and "Gate Blocker 2" in official Turbo Duels in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's,[12][13], "Restraining Sword of Impact" in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V,[14], and Monster Reborn in "Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens".

Video games[edit]

In some video games, the player can unlock the ability to use Forbidden cards in their decks after they fulfill certain in-game requirements. In such cases, they are usually allowed to only include at most one Forbidden card and only one copy of that Forbidden card (as opposed to one of each Forbidden card as with the case of Limited cards). This type of restriction would later be used as the Limited 1 status in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.

Tag Force[edit]

In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force, the player is able to include one Forbidden card after they have finished Parts 2 and 3 of the game's story with all Tier 1 characters. Afterwards, upon starting a new playthrough from Part 1, the player's character will receive a special email from Chancellor Sheppard on May 2 who allows the player to use a Forbidden card. In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 2 and Tag Force 3, the player is able to include a Forbidden card once they have finished Story Mode with enough characters without a special event. Starting with Tag Force 2, if the player's current deck includes a Forbidden card, all opponents will always use their strongest decks when they are challenged to a duel. The opponents' decks will also include a Forbidden card and from Tag Force 3 onwards, said decks will also use quantities of cards in the games' respective Forbidden/Limited lists that are normally unusable by the player, ie. multiple Forbidden cards, 2-3 copies of a Limited card and 3 copies of a Semi-Limited card.
