Ishizu Ishtar is a character in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards and Yu-Gi-Oh! Reshef of Destruction. This is a video game depiction of Ishizu Ishtar from the manga and Ishizu Ishtar from the anime.


The Sacred Cards[edit]

Ishizu's younger brother, Marik Ishtar undertook a scheme to gather the three Egyptian God cards to give him ultimate power and the title of Duel King. Ishizu believed that Marik had allowed evil to consume his heart and set out to stop him.

Ishizu came into possession of one of the Egyptian God cards, "Obelisk the Tormentor". In order to prevent the God cards falling into the wrong hands, she was willing to entrust "Obelisk" to a worthy Duelist, who would stop Marik. She considered two such Duelists, Seto Kaiba and the player, and during the Battle City tournament, arranged for them to meet at the art museum.

Ishizu greeted the player when he arrived at the gallery, just before the tournament finals. Inside, she told him of the ancient Egyptian roots of Duel Monsters; how wizards sealed monsters in stone tablets to protect the land and how corrupt priests rebel against the pharaoh by using the wizards and the monsters in the stone tablets. She showed the player a 3000-year old artifact which recorded that war and told him that Maximillion Pegasus based Duel Monsters on those stone tablets.

Before explaining why she needed to tell the player of the origins of Duel Monsters, she asked him to Duel her to confirm that he possessed true power. After the player won, she said that he may be the one to put an end to her brother's mad scheme. She showed the player a tablet depicting the three Egyptian Gods and told him of the power said to be bestowed upon the person who collects their three cards. She then introduced Seto Kaiba, as the final test to see who was worthy of bearing a God card. Ishizu congratulated the player when he won and entrusted him with "Obelisk the Tormentor".
