The Winged Dragon of Ra

The Winged Dragon of Ra


Cannot be Special Summoned. Requires 3 Tributes to Normal Summon (cannot be Normal Set). This card's Normal Summon cannot be negated. When Normal Summoned, other cards and effects cannot be activated. When this card is Normal Summoned: You can pay Life Points so that you only have 100 left; this card gains ATK and DEF equal to the amount of Life Points paid. You can pay 1000 Life Points, then target 1 monster on the field; destroy that target.

How to Get

  • Your opponent cannot respond with cards or effects when this monster is Normal Summoned to the field.
  • You can pay Life Points until you have only 100 left, in which the Life Points paid will contribute to this monster’s ATK and DEF value.
  • You can pay 1000 Life Points to destroy any monster on the field. This effect can be used multiple times in 1 turn provided you have Life Points to spend.


  • Cannot be Special Summoned by any means, except by Sphere Mode which ignores this specific condition.
  • If you paid Life Points for Ra’s ATK and DEF value, leaving you with only 100 Life Points makes you very vulnerable to your opponent’s effect damages.


  • Due to the lack of support for Divine element and Divine-Beast type currently, it is quite challenging to for your Divine monster to exhibit further potential on the field.
  • Although immune to Floodgate Trap Hole, The Winged Dragon of Ra is not immune to Spell/Traps or Monster effects after it was Normal Summoned, therefore your opponent can take use a variety of plays to handle your monster, such as Enemy Controller, Super Rush Headlong, Mirror Wall, Mask of the Accursed etc.
  • The Life Points paid to increase this monster’s ATK and DEF is not optional, meaning you will be left with 100 Life Points and that is the mandatory result of this effect. This makes you very vulnerable to virtually any cards that burns your Life Points without going through Battle Phase. Hence it is important to have some healing cards as backup and only activate after you paid Life Points for your monster.

Speed Summon

These are the cards recommended to fill your field with enough monsters to Tribute summon the Winged Dragon of Ra. Ra’s Disciple is able to fill your field with another 2 Ra’s Disciples during the turn it was Normal Summoned. Bubonic Vermin is able to Special Summon other Bubonic Vermins from your deck, but you must protect the 1st Bubonic Vermin. Since it is flip summon and Special Summon performed by Bubonic Vermin, you can use Normal Summon on Ra. Cosmic Compass is able to generate 2 more tokens provided your opponent has at least 2 monsters on their field. You can also use Creature Seizure to force your opponents to trade 1 of their monsters to your field, by trading 1 of your tokens. Since Cosmic Compass was Normal Summoned, you need to protect all your monsters for that turn until you can Summon Ra on your next turn. Mecha Phantom Beast Hamstrat is able to generate 2 more tokens when it is flipped summoned. Worm Bait can be used if you control 1 face-up insect-type monster, which allows you to Special Summon 2 Worm tokens. Ra is a Level 10 monster so it is unaffected by Worm Bait’s effect of unable to Normal or Special Summon level 3 or 4 monsters the turn Worm Bait was activated.

Life Points Support

Since using Winged Dragon of Ra requires considerable amount of Life Points, these are some of the cards to help you regain Life Points faster.

Additional Support

Windstorm of Etaqua and Curse of Anubis generally functions to protect your monsters on the field for your Tribute Summon. Double Magical Arm Bind to take over 2 of your opponent’s face-up monsters and include them in your Tribute Summon instead, potentially making their field open for a direct attack. Different Dimension Capsule to place your Winged Dragon of Ra from deck to your banished zone face-down, and add it to your hand during your 2nd Standby Phase after this card was activated.

Future Support

Currently it is unknown whether Konami will release this support card for Winged Dragon of Ra, but it is used by game AI therefore included in Future Support Section.

I hate the way Konami nerfed this card. I mean, its Ra, the mos powerful Egyptian God, and what effects does it have besides corroding your lp and taking out 3 more useful monsters from your side of the field? It is not immune to traps, it can't attack directly, it doesn't receive tributes atk points ... Konami should have more respect for a god and put effects worthy of meta.
(And if Konami has reduced Ra's power just to not be so OP, why didn't do the same with magic / trap cards that are also OP, like mirror force and wall of disruption?)

Yeah the legal version of Ra isn’t good on his own. But Sphere Mode and Immortal Phoenix are both new forms Konami printed to help Ra feel a little more like his anime/manga counterpart. But that only matters if they’re added to Duel Links at some point. The Mound of the Bound Creator field spell would certainly help Ra out too if we were to get that.

I used exchange to take this card from marik and summon it before last turn. Not easy, you have to modify an ojama deck AND BEFORE ALL, summon ojama king 1st turn.
Not gonna tell you if I obtained anything at the end pre release thought. ;) Gl!

Are there rumors/leaks how we can obtain that card? It's not a card i need, but for my collection is it a must have :)
I just wanna know, if we can farm marik at the gate by using 50/100/200/... fragments or if he will appear like all other lv50 LDs randomly in duel world.
Maybe some of you nice guys have some informations about that ;)

I think that we have "only" to win against him and get it as a gift for the first win. There is normally a random spawn of him, so it's possible that not everybody get's that card, 'cause we have only 4 days to defeat him.

imo he will appear once for everyone as a guaranteed battle. If you win, horaay, you got ra, if you lose... well, literally pray to god that he will appear once again or you're fucked my boi.
