* {{Metagame}}: Try to run a deck ''without'' cards like ''Heavy Storm'', ''Lightning Vortex'', or defensive traps such as ''Scrap-Iron Scarecrow'' and ''Mirror Force'' and count the time until someone says you ''can't'' run a deck without them.
** The Forbidden/Limited lists that change every 6 months tend to both reflect and change the Metagame.

Because of PowerCreep, exactly what decks and cards like ''Heavy Storm'', ''Lightning Vortex'', or defensive traps such as ''Scrap-Iron Scarecrow'' and ''Mirror Force'' and count the time until someone says you ''can't'' run are considered meta tend to change on a deck without them.

* {{Retcon}}: A few cards have been renamed outright in order to make them fit better with later-released archetypes: "Amazon Archer" became "Amazoness Archer," "Oscillo Hero #2" became "Wattkid," and the various "Heroes," such as the "Elemental Heroes," are now all officially "[=HEROs=]," since there are ''five different sub-archetypes'' which use the keyword.* RetiredBadass: The set "Storm of Ragnarok" heavily implies that the support monsters for the Six Samurai archetype were the original members of the group.

** The inverse has also occurred, with cards being renamed to exclude them from archetypes they're not a part of: "Red-Eyes Black Chick" became "Black Dragon's Chick", "Frog the Jam" became "Slime Toad", and "Harpie's Brother" became "Sky Scout".

* PowerCreepPowerSeep: Much of the ultra-powerful and ultra-fast nature of the game[[note]] the overwhelming majority of tournament games in 2016 only last 1-2 turns[[/note]] comes from the fact that, unlike MagicTheGathering or {{Pokemon}}, YuGiOh doesn't have proper "set rotation," meaning all cards are always legal. New archetypes are designed in a bubble to work only with themselves, but adding in just 2-3 older general-use cards takes them from "Overpowered by Design" to flat-out "broken". This has also led to such things as the once-unstoppable Cyber-Stein being vastly overshadowed by its once-weaker cousin, Magical Scientist - MS can only summon level 6 and lower fusions for one turn, but at a cost of only 1000 LP each. This was bad back when Fusions were the final stage of monster power, and you wanted the biggest around for as long as possible. Now, it's a one-man win-condition due to summoning up to 4 level 6's which are then used to fuel Rank-6 Xyz Monsters, summoning more Fusions to fuel even more Xyz Monsters, etc., setting up for a complete lockdown.

The ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' collectible card game first appeared in the [[Manga/YuGiOh manga of the same name]] as an {{homage}} to ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', of which author Kazuki Takahashi is a fan. Originally, the manga was intended to feature a new game every few weeks, with the trading cards being one of many. However, Takahashi received a lot of fan mail asking how to play it, and so he cobbled together a rudimentary game system loosely based on that of ''Magic'' which [[NewRulesAsThePlotDemands generally]] agreed with how the characters played. Fan mail kept pouring in, and so Takahashi reworked the manga to have it appear more as an important plot device. When {{Konami}} was approached to produce a real version of the game, which was released in 1999, a second [[AnimatedAdaptation anime adaptation]] of the manga, which centered solely around the card game serving as advertisement for Konami's real life card game, and it proved to be a surprise international hit. The real game made considerable changes to the rules originally established by Takahashi, and so the manga and anime were revised to more closely reflect the rules of the real game.

* PromotionalPowerlessPieceOfGarbage: Surprisingly, a lot of "[[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Illegal Illegal]]" and tournament prize cards are this. A lot of them share the same effects of "if you attack your opponent with this card and reduce their life points to zero, you win the match". They can't be used in "official" duels for one, and sure, they ''sound'' good... If not for the fact that a lot of them need to tribute three monsters of specific types and/or attributes to summon, most non-tournament duels only have one duel per match anyways, and there's [[LoopholeAbuse nothing stopping your opponent from surrendering before you attack them, saving them from losing the entire match]]. About the ''only'' prize cards that would be worth wild among them would be a few Pendulum monsters... And ''that'''s purely for their pendulum scales alone.[[note]]As of mid Arc-V era, outside of a few Pendulum monsters tied to specific archetypes like Deskbots, no "generic" Pendulum scale goes over scale eight, while a few prize cards can go up to 12-13, and don't have any archetype restrictions on them.[[/note]]

*** The Elementals weren't the only ones: Destiny Heroes, two in particular, were based on two chracters in classic Novels (Double Dude/ Literature/DrJekyllAndMrHyde; Dreadmaster/ Literature/TheManInTheIronMask) and one Evil Hero is based on one of the ComicBook/XMen (Malicious Edge/Wolverine).
