In the world of Game King, there are lots of extremely good card players, even up to the divine level like the main characters Yugi, Kaiba or Bakura. Indeed, these characters are inherently geniuses in the field of games, so it is not uncommon for them to surpass other rivals. However, if you consider who is the best magician, this will definitely be for a less prominent name – Katsuya Jonouchi.
For many people who have read or watched Yu-Gi-Oh cartoons, this is a very controversial answer. Although Jonouchi’s achievement is not always good, but if you think about it, it is clear that this normal guy has to confront those who follow the story? Let’s check out a few names to see the difference between them.
Imba trio first in the game King.
First, his close friend Yugi, who was possessed by a powerful Pharaoh, also had an enthusiastic support grandfather to help him have a rare and powerful deck of cards. Next is Kaiba, a gaming genius who even invented a machine to upgrade the playing of magic cards even more modern. Next is Bakura, a devious tomb robber who has lived for thousands of years with terrifying power and intellect. In addition, there are countless professional players with extremely powerful decks that can beat ordinary players like Jonouchi in just a few turns.
Marik also had to sweat when he fought Jonouchi even though he owned the god.
I know life is not a dream, but is Jonouchi in a dream world? Therefore, it was not uncommon for him to defeat countless opponents, even in the absence of such cards as the Red-Eye Black Dragon. In the battle on the island of card games, Jônuchi defeated Mai Valentine twice, along with a series of other famous players. Even Marik will almost face Jonouchi if he is not unconscious during the Shadow Duel battle.
Without the red-eyed black dragon, will Jonouchi still win?
If this is still not convincing enough? Then let’s recall how many times Yami Yugi lost. The exact number here is 3 times, and Jonouchi is exactly one of those 3 people. During the battle in Battle City, there was a battle between Joey and Yami Yugi with the reward of a Red Eye Black Dragon card. The results were not told, but the fact that Jonouchi would later use the Red-Eye Black Dragon was enough for people to know who won here.
Although not a very good player, Jonouchi has never tired of anyone.
In conclusion, we can see that if compared to many high level players, Jonouchi still clearly has too many weaknesses. However, when faced with difficult circumstances, it is clear that no player can be better than this “normal” guy. Is that enough to confirm he’s the best player in Yu-Gi-Oh?
