Yu-Gi-Oh!The iconic franchise’s Egyptian God cards are one of the main centers of the first anime in the series, which is particularly disappointing given the series’ other god cards, The Gods Norse gods (Arctic Gods in the original Japanese), was essentially forgotten after that. their introduction. This isn’t the first time the franchise has introduced an interesting concept and wasted its potential, but this doesn’t make this missed opportunity any less disappointing.
The introduction of these new magic cards actually appeared in the third anime of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D, considered by many to be the Yu-Gi-Oh! series. Interestingly, 5D’s focuses on another powerful set of ancient cards known as Signer Dragons. Many of the main characters in the series wield these powerful monsters, and they were vital in stopping the threat posed by the evil Earth Immortals in the first season. However, the second part shifts the focus to a future threat that isn’t intrinsically tied to these cards, allowing another set of characters with powerful ancient cards to try and confront them. this devil.
Team Ragnarok and the Norse Gods may have Yu-Gi-Oh! own cartoon
Team Ragnarok was originally introduced as a villain group for the main characters of 5D, although both groups wanted the same thing. Team Ragnarok consists of three characters Halldor, Dragan and Broder, who were chosen by the ancient Norse gods (Aesir) for some greater purpose. Each possesses one of the cards of the Norse gods, Thor, Loki, and Odin, all of which have been shown to be extremely powerful in a duel with Team 5D. However, since only one of the groups was able to take on the New Domino City that threatened the ultimate evil, Team Ragnarok was cast aside after losing the team match to Yusei and his friends. . Although they did later assist Signers in the final battle, it was very underpowered because of their huge potential.
The premise of Team Ragnarok was fertile enough to spawn its own series. After all, it combines elements of both Yu-Gi-Oh! series (a set of god cards) and 5D’s (the concept of duelists chosen by ancient entities for a specific purpose). On top of that, it will allow the series to delve into elements of Norse culture and mythology, which could set the series apart from other entries in the series. Even if an entire season wasn’t spent on Team Ragnarok, the idea of two competing sets of protagonists being chosen for a particular great destiny is incredibly unique and could easily have made its core worth. Full story in Yu-Gi-Oh! of the 5D itself. Instead, these characters were wasted in a one-off duel.
Although Team Ragnarok technically helped the Signer defeat Z-One and his allies at the end of the season, they never appeared in the franchise again. This is an incredible waste of their great potential and unfortunately a focus on Yu-Gi-Oh! anime on Rush Duels, there’s probably no way to salvage this wasted opportunity by bringing them back. Hope that Yu-Gi-Oh! franchises learn from their mistakes with Team Ragnarok and Cards of Norse Gods and develop more fully their interesting concepts in the future.
