Yu-Gi-Oh! is a media franchise created by Kazuki Takahashi. The series began in 1996 with a manga published in Weekly Shōnen Jump. It is most well-known for the trading card game owned and published by Konami. The manga later received two anime adaptations and numerous spin-offs by various animation studios. A number of video games have been produced.

The series focuses on decks of collectible cards which players use to "duel" with each other. Within duels, each player has a set number of "Life Points". When these are fully depleted by their opponent's monsters, a player loses the match. In the anime series, Yugi Muto takes the role of the player. Throughout the show he investigates an ancient entity called Pharaoh after solving the Millennium Puzzle. The various spin-off series follow different protagonists.

A Brawl in a Small Town Part 1 (S5E192)[edit]

Leon's Gingerbread House swallows Rebecca's Luster Dragon and spits it out. Because its ATK exceeds 2500, it gains so much weight that it explodes.

In the same duel, Leon's Forest Wolf is seen swallowing both Fire Princess and Luster Dragon. Leon counters the latter attack by activating "Tribute to the Doomed" which destroys Forest Wolf.
