Yu-Gi-Oh! is a multimedia franchise that includes multiple Anime and Manga series, a Collectible Card Game, a line of Video Games, and more.

Starting out as a manga by Kazuki Takahashi, Yu-Gi-Oh! tells the story of Yugi Mutou, a put-upon teenager who is pulled into a world of intrigue and high-stakes gaming after solving the mysterious and ancient Millennium Puzzle. The puzzle, an artifact from ancient Egypt, grants Yugi a mysterious alter ego, who spends much of the early series facing evildoers who threaten his friends in "Shadow Games," where mystic forces punish the wicked if they lose.

Slowly, the focus of the story turned towards the trading card game Duel Monsters, which was eventually revealed to be based on an ancient Egyptian game played by the previous owners of the Millennium Items. From then on, Yugi and his friends, find themselves facing bad guys seeking to use the power of Yugi's Millennium Puzzle for their own nefarious purposes, and always in games of Duel Monsters.

Yugi's story was eventually completed, but the francise continued in Spin Offs with new spiky-haired protagonists - the Shadow Games may be gone, but Duel Monsters still has a knack for channeling supernatural forces.
