The DIVINE Attribute was initially only used on the three original Egyptian God cards, which were illegal in official play. Thus, the Attribute was not considered legal until the end of 2008, when "Obelisk the Tormentor" was first released in the OCG as an Effect Monster and a V Jump promotional card. With the release of Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants in 2013, all three Egyptian God cards have received legal releases in all regions of both the OCG and TCG.
Since then, there have been three additional DIVINE monsters released: "Holactie the Creator of Light" (OCG only), the combined form of all three Egyptian Gods; "The Winged Dragon of Ra - Sphere Mode"; and "The Winged Dragon of Ra - Immortal Phoenix" .
The DIVINE Attribute's exclusive nature makes it useful in some cases; for example, it is the only Attribute unaffected by "Clear World".
Aside from the three Egyptian Gods and their combined form, other monsters have also been considered DIVINE Attribute outside of the OCG and TCG. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! R manga, the three Wicked Gods are DIVINE. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, the three Sacred Beasts are DIVINE, and in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime, the three "Aesir" are DIVINE. All nine cards have different Attributes in the OCG and TCG.
The DIVINE icon uses the same background as the LIGHT icon.
In Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM, the DIVINE Attribute is used by the Sacred Beasts; "Raviel, Lord of Phantasms", "Uria, Lord of Searing Flames" and "Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder". DIVINE cards have their own black and gold frame and only one DIVINE card can be included in a Deck.
