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".

There is currently no support for Divine-Beast-Type monsters; however, "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".
