Final Darkness will become famous soon enough
Default Racist cards

Can someone name me some racist cards?

Out of the top of my head, I can think of:
Izanami
Izanagi
OCG Psychic Commander
Mystic Swordsman series

Konami wasn't about to let Fortune Lady Dark keep her original name.

How are any of those considered "racist" by any means? Izanami is only remotely racist if you reverse the name, which is stupid because it is the name of an important goddess in Shintoism. Izanagi is not racist any way you spin, sir. Psychic Commander was edited for obvious reasons (and people complain about edits). And the Mystic Swordsman are just swordsman... Would you explain your logic with the Mystic Swordsman series?

What about Skilled White Magician? We have Skilled Dark Magician so why wasn't SWM called Skilled LIGHT Magician?

care to explain why any of these are racist?
Izanami: Here an idea do a little research. Google it, ignore the yugioh related site and you will find it the name of a deity so people really need to get over the name spelled backward garbage

Izanagi: same thing (learning isn't just for school kids)

Psychic Commander: He's doing a nazi like salute, you see this in anime every so often, usually for comedic effect or to show the bad guy really is bad. Hilter himself showed up in the Dragon Ball Z movie ****atsu no Fusion!! Goku to Vegeta /Fusion Reborn running around in a little tank doing the salute only to get beaten back down by Gotenks

Mystic Swordsman: uh care to explain why this is racist?

as a note The Japanesse generally aren't racist they just don't care about what other coutries call poltically correct.

Though they should be opposites since their stats are opposites. They're literally opposites of each other so Dark and Light makes more sense than Dark and White.

Politically correct bull****. Stop reading so far into this **** and just play the game.

That was censored on the grounds of "Black Magic" seen as Satanic rituals, in wich 4Kids and Konami didn't think parent's would take to well.

Think this should go in the OCG forum, along with Domestic Abuse Panda.

None of this is racist. This is why we can't get nice things in the TCG.

Izanami: Reversing the name of a deity in Japanese folklore that far predated Hitler and the Nazi regime to find "I'm a Nazi" in the name is crazy and is considered conspiracy theory.

Izanagi: IgaNazi? What are you seeing in this, once again.

OCG Psychic Commander: Once again, this was a great edit on Konami/UDE's part. Since a lot of America's controlling investment is Jewish, lots of them would have been rightly offended and not wanted their kids to play it. In Japan, where things are a bit more lax, it's not a big deal.

Mystic Swordsman series: Are you making a KKK reference here? Cause they're wearing white hats? Are you joking? HE'S A SWORDSMAN. There are no swordsman in the KKK, nor are any of them mystic. Furthermore, it doesn't even look like a KKK cap, it's a cowl and cape. Like every other Dark Magician based card.

The most racist thing in this thread is the OP thinking these cards are racist.

This thread fails on every level and OP is an idiot for thinking any of those are racist.

Re-actions like this are why Konami edits card art. Don't hate Konami, hate the fools who jump to stupid conclusions
