The three powerful Egyptian God Cards are, from left to right: The Winged Dragon of Ra, Slifer the Sky Dragon, and Obelisk the Tormentor. In the first season of Yu-Gi-Oh!, they were owned by Marik/Malik Ishtar, Yugi Muto, and Seto Kaiba respectively. Seto Kaiba founded Duel Academy with dorms based on these cards, making Slifer the worst because of his not-so-friendly feelings towards Yugi, and Obelisk the best because of his ego. The cards’ original Japanese names were: Winged God-Dragon of Ra, Sky Dragon of Osiris, and Giant God-Soldier of Obelisk. The English change from Osiris to Slifer references the 4Kids employee Roger Slifer, who worked on the English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh!. (Photo Credit: Erik McLean / Unsplash)
