    The biggest letdowns in Yu-Gi-Oh!

    Everyone who follows Yu-Gi-Oh! ,the real life game, the anime , the manga and video games or all the stuff i said previously at the same time ,had some moments of joyness when a card is revealed or when new Episode is up and shows you a good content... But this do not happen all the time sometimes Yu-Gi-Oh! let us down by making a card that you think is "ridiculous" or making a bad anime episode or a bad video game well at the end of the day nothing is perfect everything in this world have its flaws this is how the world rolls, but everyone had a big a letdown ,i had a lot of it like the lack of Rank 4s in RaidRaptors, Akaba Bros few ons-screen times and the fact Jack "lost" to Yusei in the first episodes of 5d's, some of these you can overcome and carry on but some of these you find unnaceptable , my biggest letdowns that comes to my memory now is the Numbers 1 to 4 even the fake forms with execpetion of baal-zebul i thought that those numbers before they come to screen were something god-like numbers or at least not fucking doors and also why numeron dragon is not fucking released yet?.

    PS: Sorry for some bad grammar i got a "lil" sick after X-mas

    Easy: the real version of the Winged Dragon of Ra. It's supposed to be the strongest of the three gods. And yet, when they made a usable card for it, it lacks it's primary way of getting attack. so it has to rely on Point to Point Transfer, which you can do only once, and if you do, you have to give up almost all of your life points. And if you do, you can't use it's other effect, which also requires life payment. So, you either have high attack and no effect, where losing it will cost you the game, or no attack and a great potential for destruction, which means you're treating it as a spell card.
    This is why they made the extra forms to make it playable.

    The fact that we'll most likely never get to see Cosmic Blazar Dragon is a good one, He sounded like the coolest monster ever!... And that's all, because he never got to exist...

    Let's see about the Anime and Manga:

    DM: I don't see a flaw, its the original after all, I never had something against it.

    GX: Rushing Season 4 which answered some plot holes and character developement but others were left unanswered (But it was because of some complications with Judai's Seiyuu, it was hard getting him for the Movie too). The Manga felt a bit rushed too.

    5ds: Promoting Blackwings (I don't have anything against Crow, he is a nice character after all, but because of his Blackwings 5ds got changed MUCH like Aki and Twins being Demonted to Extra). And having the bad luck of cult related stuff happening in the time 5ds was airing so they changed Yliaster to Future Heros to prevent references (And for more bad luck Carly suffered from that).

    Zexal: Not completing the fucking Numbers collection besides having Anime AND Manga to do it. And wasted characters (Numbers Club as the most prominent example). The letdown that were Numbers 1-4. E'rah appering out of the blue in the Manga (But that led to Astral's sad mission).

    ARC-V: Slow as fuck pacing in the current Arc, but when it recovers its episodes are NICE. Akaba bros. dueling literally each 30-60 episodes (It required 60 fucking episodes to have Reira at least duel against FODDER, and its one of my favorite ARC-V characters too). Cutting Futoshi and Tatsuya's duels against Reira in the MC, specially after knowing that Tatsuya had "Entermachines" and losing the opportunity of having Reira dueling more.

    Not releasing the unused mosnters:
    -Colorless, Chaos King of the Dark World.
    -Super Fusion God.
    -Cosmic Blazar Dragon.
    -Number 5: Doom Chimera Dragon (This is the one I want the most of the 4).

    TCG/OCG wise: I was dissapointed about the DOCS Raidraptor support, the Rank 3 being trash and Wild Vulture being hyped up for nothing.

    I will edit or comment again if I remember some flaws more.

    Biggest letdown: Black Stone of Legend rarity. I wanted to build a good Red-Eyes deck so much, but Konami screwed me up so hard with the Secret Rare Black Stone that I'm still pissed of about it.

    Anime wise, Cosmic Blazar Dragon never being revealed and the way Zexal was handled by the writers, with a lot of characters with wasted potential and unfinished plot lines.
    I don't post a lot, but I read everything in this forum. EVERYTHING.
    Current Decks: Red-Eyes | RaidRaptors | D/D/D | Generic Wyrm | Dark Doriado

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist is THE letdown of the month for me. I was thinking about gifting myself the game but after seeing some letsplays, yeah... I preferred to play Tag Force 5 in my PSP while I'm away from my computer because of the holidays (btw I'm having a great time playing that game. So much fun and so much nostalgia of beating the cr*p out of everyone with my GB and Infernity D-Heroes). A smaller letdown was Tag Force Arc-V because of not having the monster summon/attack animations.

    About the anime... The standard: GX 4to season not being dubbed when I watched it as a kid, Aki being overshadow by Crow and BUYBlackwings, Zexal I...

    Now the TCG/OCG, OH BOY. A lot of them are small but the ones that still hurt even today are Cyberdarks, Fortune Ladies and LV monsters (mostly the Silent monsters). I tried and I keep trying to make a deck that works but it's pointless.

    Akiza and the twins wasn't Crow's fault.

    Oh man do I have a lot.

    DM: The fact The Winged Dragon of Ra was separated into three cards, just for it to be usable, with the original form a piece of crap, Sphere Mode being the most underwhelming, despite being great support for the God, due to the set it was in and how late the card came out, and with Phoenix being the most meh, despite its absolute power it had in the anime. In addition, I found the Waking the Dragons Arc slightly decent, as it had some of the coolest monsters in the series thus far, as well as some of the best support for iconic cards, and the fight with the Leviathan, with all three God cards fighting off against this invincible, titanic beast...only to be used as fodder for two measly sets that came out almost 10 years later, and with the entire arc treated as useless, as it's almost always skipped whenever anyone mentions the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series.

    GX: I hate that Japan got Season 4 way the hell before us, the fact that this series was rushed, and despite some nostalgic characters and events, there was hardly no backbone in some of the more climatic Duels. Also, HERO support to this day, to which is insane. Last, I hate Nightshroud overall. Sure, they may have tossed this season out because he looked like the Grim Reaper and Death's crazy anti-christ love child, but the fact the entire series was just a rising point to this guy's appearance...only to end up nothing more than uber-generic bad guy that gets his ass kicked into by a kid, not to mention his entire season punted from the US, and the fact his build-up erased some of the more mysterious plot-holes, character backgrounds, and more, only to be removed? Ew.

    5D's: Blackwings. There's too many. Sure, it's a fun archetype, sure, Crow's a cool character, but I wanted to also see more of the Twins and Akiza more. They had interesting backstories, but as soon as Crow gained access to Black-Winged Dragon, Akiza became nothing more than our fanservice, and the twins becoming side characters. it was sad to see. Also, like GX, we didn't get the seasons that were as important as hell until way later. To this day, I'm still answering questions as to why there's Timelords in Yu-Gi-Oh, and if Shooting Quasar was actually used by Yusei in the anime. It's many a stupid question to answer, but yet here I am, having to not judge over a mistake as big as this. Also, can I say that the manga in this series is strange? It's fine by manga standards, but it seems odd to me that Yusei is actually a criminal, Akiza is a Priestess, Jack is the King, and the fact the NOTCrimsion Dragon is the Devil...Just saying!

    ZeXal: Oh boy..they messed up, big time. I'm not gonna judge this series, but I'm gonna complain like no one ever did. Not all the numbers were released, the main, most important ones are underwhelming, Number 5 never fucking happened, the manga variants are the most broken cards in the game to date, some defined a format, the show was executed..okay, but didn't have as high expectations of the previous three, the Dub was atrocious, the music in this series was meh, and bad in the dub, another Gx and 5Ds moment happened where we didn't get the important episodes until a year or two later when ARC-V was airing, and that the manga is slightly better, but still somewhat ugly. Most of the characters are devoid of their Anime counterparts, E'Rah is a thing, which is stupid, crazy, and WHY DID THEY NERF DYSTOPIA/ANTI-HOPE. Last, this series introduced a widespread incident known as "Xyz Cancer", which, honestly, is absolutely stupid. This series brought the Rank 4 Spam into the game, and it's sad that this series is always targeted as a scapegoat for everyone's anger about that, and it sickens me more that I do it as well.

    ARC-V: despite being good, it's dark as hell, the plot is slow as hell, although there is some great parts that keep us watching it, and that the important Duels with important characters don't actually happen. Also, the Akabas. Riley/Riera finally duels again, after 50 or so episodes, against fodder of all things, and Declan/Reiji finally Duels again after 32 Episodes...as a one-shot with only Kali Yuga and Ragnarok on field...May I mention that there are overhyped characters that actually lower our expectations? Shun, for example. Awesome character, diverse Deck, but in actuality, we only use half the Deck he actually has, as the TCG doesn't have the needed support, that there's better options than a Pure build, the fact that there was overhyped cards that were nothing but trash, and that kids won't understand the person he is as they're not only too young to understand war, but by the time the Dub rolls in the episode with Shun and Crow, they're already going to admire a crap ton more characters, like Yuya and Yuzu, as an example. Sure, we like him, hell, he's my favorite character, but mind you, this is a show with a target audience, meant for children.
    Speaking of, why the hell weren't the kids in the Standard Dimension fleshed out more? The three biggest fans of Yuya, each running a Deck that symbolizes him in some way, only to be used as bait for Yuya's desires to make people happy? The fact I don't know their names bugs me too.

    Last, the Dub is okay, but it took a long time for the showrunners to get that right, and the manga is stupid. It already spoiled the anime (Odd-Eyes and Co. will merge into a super dragon at Number 100: Numeron Dragon levels.), and it's not even close to the plot of the anime, something the other 4 manga actually stayed close to (For example, Yuya Duels Shun in the Manga, in fact, as the second opponent. When did this happen in the Anime?), and last, there is no connection with the returning characters in the previous animes to ARC-V. I wanted to actually know how Crow was doing after 5D's, not see he's a completely new person with a face we all recognize.

    Bleh, I'm done ranting for one evening.
    Oh look, a REALLY small set of words. It's not like they're important..right?
