  • Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, several times, gives the moral that "no card is worthless, just as no person is worthless." However, this is undercut by the fact that protagonist Yusei Fudo uses one of the most powerful decks in the series, full of Synchros ranging from rare to one-of-a-kind. What's more, every time he uses "worthless" cards to make this point, he quickly reverts to his usual Deck. It's especially obvious when the one time this strategy was applied against him (the enemy used low-level vanillas and an ace so Awesome, but Impractical it'd never been summoned before), he dealt the finishing blow with a unique superpowered dragon that'd been given him by a god from the future (one backed up by a friend's card, but still).

I'm disputing the last sentence of this. Last time I was here I deleted the last line because in context it fails to live up to the point being made by the paragraph. Yusei destroyed said Awesome, but Impractical monster using a card combo that didn't require him to attack with said "unique superpowered dragon" to defeat it, so it has nothing to do with the "no card is worthless, just as no person is worthless." aesop being broken either for or against. When I left this as the edit reason for deleting it the last time, whomever added it back couldn't come up with a counter argument and only used WeaselWords to pad over my point.

I'm going to leave this up for a week so I can have time to debate the point with the editor, then re-delete the sentence if I fail to be convinced to keep it up.

As it's been a week and no one's responded to the PM I sent, I'm going to go ahead and delete the line.
