Still not available outside that one skill. Yes, it's stupid.
Literally invincible
Cons - Unable to special summon using Monster Reborn due to effect that cannot be targeted by spell. I don't know when did they implement the rule. I tried to revive it using Monster Reborn in Duel Links but I failed. Haha!

Someone else was preventing you from special summoning it. You can revive Obelisk and similar cards with card effects. The target immunity is only applied when they're face up on the field.

You can click and hold on the card and check if it has a negated symbol on it. There is a cheat that can disable your cards. The negate symbol will also show up on trap/spell zones if they are cheating. It's the effect from Elements Unite but hacked to be used on any opponents cards.

Get into dlm -> pay premium membership -> ask for "coaching" tool -> enjoy your cheat tool that has been distributed among most of the dlm tournament regulars

Get into YouTube -> type "duel links bullywiiplaza" -> see with your very own eyes how cheating in dl works

Yup its very well known and they dont even deny it. The interviews have been removed from YT but 4 tournament winners on cam said they use card transparency and have bots or friends play in shifts. You can also look for players that have [random letters] ign. They will ask you to join and give you cheats and lose so you can get KoG easy.
I wish they'd hurry up and give us the Alternate Artwork card already. I'm suck of it showing as grayed out in Summon Animation menu
Fake god.
You do the will of another, you become a slave immediately.

This fella preaches inferiority complex. Read the Leviticus, this guy has less confidence than an orphan child.

Marik and Kaiba managed to control Obelisk and Osiris beacuse kaiba was considered the prince of egypt and Marik almost defeated the pharaoh itself it was also considered "king marik" he was a manipulator of the shadow realm itself and he managed to control Ra even Bakura can control the Gods cuz he is The Darkness itself only beings who have supernatural powers and a past on Egypt can control God

You forgot to mention you also need to be able to recite the specific ancient egyptian phrases to be able to control Ra.
someone got me with this in platinum running ojamas. shouts out.
Its easily affected by widespread ruin, cards like mirror force wall of disruption and the Amazoness Trap card
I was checking Kaiba lines video and I found that he had a line with Obelisk with something like "I activate Obelisk's effect, Titan Firestorm". That's different from his other "fist of fury" line.

So what does that titan Firestorm thing? Or we will get an Obliesk skill for Kaiba like the Ra and Slifer inspired by the anime?

Obelisk has an effect where you van tribute 2 monsters to destroy all monsters on the field however you cant attack dueibg that turn.
How come that Darklord Desire can target Obelisk??

Likely because a The Sanctified Darklord had negated its effects.

Did it target? If not then that's why it worked.

Some traps target some don't. Widespread ruin for instance will get rid of Obelisk as that destroys the highest attack monster but doesn't target.

Treacherous Trap Hole won't destroy it though, as that requires a target.

It's all there in the card description.
