"Forbidden One", known as "Sealed One" (封(ふう)印(いん)されし Fūinsareshi) in the Japanese version, is an archetype of cards first released in Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon and was the first group of cards to provide an automatic win. The main card, "Exodia the Forbidden One" (often referred to as "Exodia's head") is also one of the first five Effect Monsters ever to be released. The "Forbidden One" cards are some of the most iconic cards in the series, being well known for their Automatic Win effect and how, in the anime, Yugi was the first person to ever Summon "Exodia" (and in the first episode). While many people simply refer to these cards as "Exodia" cards, only the head of Exodia actually contains the name, while the other pieces are called "Forbidden One" in any card effect that refers to them; when used elsewhere on this page, "Exodia" refers only to the card "Exodia the Forbidden One" or the completed monster.

While the original "Forbidden One" set was extremely hard to obtain (all five pieces were Ultra Rare), they have since been reprinted in lesser rarities; a common practice is to print "Exodia" as an Ultra Rare and the limbs as Commons, making the set much easier to obtain. While the "Forbidden One" Deck was perhaps one of the first Deck types, it still remains a popular one, being supported through several new cards (specifically, new draw engines and draw loops).

"Exodia" is one of the few cards that can actually declare an automatic win. Others include "Destiny Board", "Final Countdown", "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord", "Last Turn", "Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes", "The Creator God of Light, Horakhty", and the Match Winners.

Notably, "Exodia" was the only monster ever specifically mentioned in the rulebooks, even having the rule that should the five pieces be in your hand at any time you win the duel. This was, however, prior to other cards being released with effects that declared an automatic win. "Exodia" has since been removed from the rulebooks, as the effects written on the head are sufficient enough.
ExodiaTablet.jpg

"Exodia" was, at first, a beast of such incalculable and intimidating might that he was split up into five distinctive parts - each one of them chained and sealed away by magic from all the other monsters (hence "the Forbidden One"). This would prevent his power from ever being used again. It was used by Shimon against Zorc Necrophades, against whom he was equal; however, "Exodia" was defeated due to the fact that Shimon is a mortal man whereas Zorc has his own power source.

As a result, in the Yu-Gi-Oh card game, there are five distinct "Forbidden One" cards, each one symbolizing a part of the complete "Exodia". In order for "Exodia" to regain his tremendous power, all of the five cards must be reunited in the player's hand. This brings the parts of the Forbidden One together, allowing "Exodia" to break free - his strength being so great that he guarantees the Summoner an automatic win, regardless of the situation.

The effect of "Exodia" makes it one of the most godlike monsters in Duel Monsters; unlike the rest of the monsters used in duels, "Exodia" doesn't rely on attack and defense - it declares an immediate victory whenever complete & uncut - every time all five cards are assembled in the hand, the owner wins.

The complete set is first used by Yugi Muto/Yami Yugi.

This card is reffered to as "Head of Exodia" by one of the Rare Hunters.

The original manga and first series anime has this card as a Level 7 while the second series anime has it as a Level 3.

In the anime, this monster appeared when someone gathered his five limbs in their hand. In that instant, it appeared and attacked, destroying all the opponent's monsters with one blow and wiping out the opponent's Life Points with his attack.

The attack of this monster is called Raging Hellfire - Exxod Flame 「怒りの業火 エクゾード・フレイム」 in the manga, the Japanese anime and the English uncut versions. The broadcast anime doesn't have a consistent attack name, although Obliterate is what it does in the first episode.

First AppearenceEdit

When Yugi duels Seto Kaiba (the Death-T final match in the manga or the first duel of the second series anime), Yugi managed to assemble all five pieces of Exodia (a feat that no duelist has ever accomplished prior to that duel) and attacks and destroys all of Kaiba's three Blue-Eyes White Dragons, winning him the duel.

Duelist KingdomEdit

While on the ship to Maximillion Pegasus' Island, Weevil Underwood threw Yugi's Exodia cards overboard. Despite Joey Wheeler jumping in to try and save the cards, he only recovers two pieces.

Battle CityEdit

When Joey duels a Rare Hunter, the Rare Hunter recurringly uses Graceful Charity to get the five pieces into his hand, eventually succeding in getting a complete set and destroys Joey's Red-Eyes Black Dragon. After the duel, the Rare Hunter reveals to Joey that he has three complete copies of Exodia.

When Yugi duels the Rare Hunter, the Rare Hunter utilizies the same strategy (resulting in the Rare Hunter having two copies of this card in his hand) but Yugi quickly figured it out before the Rare Hunter revealed it. After Yugi eliminates the Rare Hunter's Stone Statue of the Aztecs and Gear Golem the Moving Fortress, banishes the Rare Hunter's Right Arm of the Forbidden One for three turns via Lightforce Sword and the Rare Hunter using Swords of Revealing Light to stall for time, he summons his first copy that he has in his hand as a defensive monster (while he kept his second copy in his hand) as he ran out of defensive monsters and became worried that Yugi might destroy his Swords of Revealing Light before the effect expires but Yugi uses Chain Destruction to destroy the Rare Hunter's other copies of this card in his hand and Deck then Yugi attacks and destroys the one on the field with Chimera the Flying Mythical Beast after he gets rid of Swords of Rvealing Light via Dust Tornado. After Yugi won the duel, he discovers that the Rare Hunter's cards had been marked (either by an invisible ink that let him know what card the Rare Hunter was about to draw in the English version or with the cards being forgeries in Japanese version) and Yugi then rips the Exodia cards up.

Virtual RealmEdit

When Seto duels with his stepfather Gozaburo Kaiba, Gozaburo sends this card, Left Arm of the Forbidden One, Right Leg of the Forbidden One and Left Leg of the Forbidden One to the Graveyard via Painful Choice. Once Gozaburo had the five pieces of Exodia in his Graveyard, he activated Contract with Exodia to Special Summon Exodia Necross. This card makes Exodia Necross unable to be destroyed by battle but damage calculation is still applied normally. Later, this card (along with the other four pieces) are banished by Kaiba's Soul Demolition.

Waking the DragonsEdit

When Weevil Underwood and Rex Raptor are taken within Dartz's headquarters, the two see a complete of Exodia among other copies of every card in existence at the time sans the Legendary Dragons and the Egyptian Gods.

Dawn of the DuelEdit

During Aknamkanon's reign, Shimon (the past life of Solomon Muto) has this monster as his Ka and he swore to seal it and never use it again after he destroyed the force that was attacking the Egyptian capital.

When Zorc Necrophades attacks Egypt, Shimon summons Exodia from its five pieces after he took up the Millennium Key (either after Isis brought it back in the anime or when Shimon took it off Shada's corpse in the manga). Although Exodia experienced some success (like after Shimon demonstrates its ability to regenerate after its arm was torn off by Zorc in the anime), Zorc overpowers Exodia since its power is based on Shimon's while Zorc can draw power from the darkness. Therefore, Exodia is destroyed and Shimon is killed.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GXEdit

In episode 75, this card appears in a flashback to episode 57 of the previous series.
In episode 127, the Yubel-possessed Marcel Bonaparte had the Exodia cards in his hand against Adrian Gecko, and was about the draw the final piece, but the duel ends prematurely.
In episodes 144 and 145, Adrian uses the Exodia cards against Aster Phoenix and eventually Summons "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord".
In episodes 149 and 150 Adrian plays the Exodia cards against the Yubel-possessed Jesse Anderson. He Summons "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" and when this strategy fails, attempts to use "Fog Castle" and "Break the Seal" to gather the cards back to his hand.
This card appears in the Japanese closing song Borderline In all Non-Japanese Version of the Exodia Cards the Spellbinding Circle can be seen behind him. In the Japanese Version there is a picture of a pentagram star.
Exodia and his limbs do not align properly when all 5 cards are physically placed together.
This card's Japanese name translates roughly to "Sealed Exodia".
This card is featured on the artwork of the following cards:

TCG "Exchange"

The Bandai version of this card is Level 8, the Konami version is Level 3.
This card is the first ever card released to permit an Automatic Win.

This card has three counterparts: Exodia Necross, Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord, and Exxod, Master of The Guard.

Exodia the Forbidden One

The Greek lore given is not official.

Greek - Εξόντια ο Απαγορευμένος
Οι 4 καρτές των άκρων αυτού του θεού διασκορπίστηκαν. Συγκεντρώνοντας τα 5 κομμάτια Αυτός ανασταίνεται και όλοι οι εχθροί αφανίζονται αυτομάτως.

(This lore is the translated Bandai lore.)

This card can be searched via "Sangan", "Mystic Tomato", "Magician's Circle", "Deep Diver", "Gold Sarcophagus", "Different Dimension Capsule", and "Lavalval Chain".

See Exodia OTK for a list of decks that focus on winning with this card's effect.

Use "Armageddon Knight", "Dark Grepher", "Lavalval Chain" and "Foolish Burial" to send the five Exodia pieces to your Graveyard quickly. Then use "Dark Eruption", "Dark Factory of Mass Production", and "Backup Soldier" to return the pieces to your hand.
If you play "Graceful Charity" and (after discarding) you have the 5 pieces of "Exodia", you win the duel before "Magical Thorn" inflicts damage.[1]

After resolving a Chain Link, if you have "Exodia the Forbidden One"/"Right Arm of the Forbidden One"/"Left Arm of the Forbidden One"/"Right Leg of the Forbidden One"/"Left Leg of the Forbidden One" in your hand, you immediately win the Duel. If your opponent activates "Delinquent Duo" and you chain "Backup Soldier", "Backup Soldier" will resolve first. If you have all five pieces in your hand, you will win the Duel before "Delinquent Duo" resolves.[2]

When you have 300 Life Points and activates "Graceful Charity" while "Skull Invitation" is active, if you have "Exodia the Forbidden One"/"Right Arm of the Forbidden One"/"Left Arm of the Forbidden One"/"Right Leg of the Forbidden One"/"Left Leg of the Forbidden One" in your hand after "Graceful Charity" resolves, then you immediately win the Duel before resolving the effect of "Skull Invitation".[3]

If each player has a "Sangan" sent to the Graveyard simultaneously by "Dark Hole" etc, the two form a Chain and you resolve backwards. The Turn Player's "Sangan" is Chain Link 1, and the opponent's is Chain Link 2. If each player has four pieces of "Exodia" in his hand, then Chain Link 2 resolves first and the opponent is declared the winner before Chain Link 1 resolves.[4]

If both players draw all five pieces of "Exodia the Forbidden One" from the effect of "Morphing Jar", then the Duel ends in a DRAW.[5]

If a player completes "Exodia the Forbidden One" while "Prohibition" is active and declaring "Exodia the Forbidden One", then that player still wins the Duel.[6]

Suppose that two copies of "Sangan" are destroyed simultaneously by "Dark Hole" while both players have four pieces of "Exodia the Forbidden One" in their hands. Both cards' effects activate and form a Chain, with the opponent's "Sangan" as Chain Link 2. Resolving backwards, the opponent adds a piece of "Exodia the Forbidden One" to his hand, causing him to win the Duel.[7]

For cards like "Graceful Charity", "Dark World Dealings", "Solar Recharge", "Allure of Darkness", "Common Charity", and similar cards: if you draw the fifth piece of "Exodia the Forbidden One" through this effect, then you declare victory after you finish fully resolving the effect. If the second part of the effect causes you to discard a piece, then after you finish fully resolving the effect "Exodia the Forbidden One" is no longer complete, so you cannot declare victory.[8]

Suppose that both players have "Appropriate" active, and that they are in the middle of a "loop" where both players keep drawing. If a player completes "Exodia the Forbidden One" during that loop, then he immediately wins the Duel and there is no more drawing.[9]

When resolving the effect of "Pot of Greed" or "Appropriate", if the only card left in your Deck is the last piece of "Exodia the Forbidden One", then you lose the Duel because you cannot draw when you are forced to draw.[10]

When you draw the fifth piece of "Exodia the Forbidden One", you win the Duel as soon as all five pieces are in your hand. Your opponent cannot activate "Drop Off" in response, since the Duel has already been won.[11]

If you draw the fifth piece of "Exodia the Forbidden One" while "Deck Devastation Virus" is active, then you immediately declare victory before the effect of "Deck Devastation Virus" destroys the last piece.[12]

When a player adds the fifth piece of "Exodia the Forbidden One" to his hand, he must declare victory immediately. He cannot refuse to declare victory.[13]

At the start of the Duel, if the player going second starts off with all five pieces of "Exodia the Forbidden One" in his hand, then he wins the Duel before the first player draws his card. The same applies if the player going first starts off with all five pieces. If both players have all five pieces of "Exodia the Forbidden One" in their hands at the start of the Duel, then the Duel ends in a DRAW.[14]

When you add the fifth piece to your hand and declare that you win the Duel, you are using a victory condition. You are not activating a monster's effect, so "Divine Wrath" and "Gladiator Beast War Chariot" cannot be activated.[15]

Mentions in Other RulingsEdit

Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord: A single "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" must send all five "Forbidden One" cards to the Graveyard for you to win the Duel. If multiple copies of "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" send a total of five "Forbidden One" cards to the Graveyard, you do not win the Duel.[16] If "Foolish Burial" sends one piece to the Graveyard, you do not win the Duel.[17]

Jar Turtle: If both you and your opponent control a "Jar Turtle", then the Turn Player's "Jar Turtle" is treated as resolving first. If the Turn Player draws and obtains the last piece of "Exodia the Forbidden One", then he wins the Duel before his opponent draws from his "Jar Turtle".[18]

There are many ways to get all 5 pieces of Exodia into your hand in one turn. Each of the following decks focuses on different playing styles in getting Exodia to the hand as soon as possible. Generally, the Best way to play Exodia is to concentrate on draw power and protection of the Exodia pieces. There are many other ways to use them well.




Standard Exodia
Monsters

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Sangan
Emissary of the Afterlife
Skelengel
Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive
Deep Diver
Vortex Trooper
Card Car D
Mad Reloader

Gold Sarcophagus
Foolish Burial
Magic Planter
Monster Reborn
Level Limit - Area B
Pot of Avarice
Painful Choice
Contract with Exodia
Traps

Limit Reverse
Call of the Haunted
Gravity Bind
This version of is probably the most basic way of constructing an Exodia deck. Mainly on the first turn, you use "Foolish Burial" to get "Sangan". Using "Infinite Cards" helps here. Then, continuously use "Upstart Goblin", "Hand Destruction", or "Card Destruction". Use "Limit Reverse" or "Dark Eruption" to repeatedly use "Sangan's" effect to win the duel.

Obviously, this deck is vulnerable to Aggro Decks and Beatdown Decks, so cards like "Messenger of Peace", "Wall of Revealing Light", "Gravity Bind", "Spatial Collapse", and "Destiny HERO - Defender" can help stall for time. Plus, cards like "Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive" 'Witch of the Black Forest"and "Emissary of the Afterlife" can help you draw or search for the Exodia pieces. (You could also use "Deep Diver" to move an Exodia card to the top of your Deck.)

You can also use "Hand Destruction" to discard 2 normal pieces of Exodia to search for more parts. Then, once you've done this, use "Dark Factory of Mass Production" to add the 2 discarded pieces.

This deck focuses on using mass draw power to get through your deck as quickly as possible in one turn. By using "Royal Magical Library" for a big boost in this deck you are able to go through the deck at rocket speed and possibly drawing the whole deck in one turn, leaving your opponent with very little reaction time. By using LV8 "Destiny HERO" cards, you can combo "Trade-In" and "Destiny Draw" to get the most flexibility out of the deck. As "Destiny Draw" is now rendered Semi-Limited, "Broken Bamboo Sword" and "Golden Bamboo Sword" can provide an excellent substitute combo. Another combo, which can draw up to 12 cards, utilizes Good Goblin Housekeeping and Emergency Provisions. (Further details in Good Goblin Housekeeping "Tips" section.) There is also another type of Exodia Deck, one that also focuses on Mega Draw but also thins the deck.

You can also combine this Deck with "Destiny HERO" monsters to abuse the effect of "Allure of Darkness" and "Destiny Draw". Also, you can use Level 8 "Destiny HERO" monsters such as "Destiny HERO - Dreadmaster", "Destiny HERO - Plasma" and "Destiny HERO - Dogma" to use "Trade-In" with them. A good strategy is to use "Destiny HERO - Diamond Dude" in combo with "A Feather of the Phoenix" to use again the effect of one card in the Graveyard without costs. So you got a lot of draw cards, without the necessity of thinning the Deck with cards like "Toon Table of Contents" or "Thunder Dragon" and you got a solid Deep Draw Exodia Deck.
Dark Searcher ExodiaEdit
Dark Searcher Exodia
Monsters

Sangan
Emissary of the Afterlife
Witch of the Black Forest (Traditional only)


Spells

Allure of Darkness
Dimension Fusion
D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation
Magical Stone Excavation
Magical Merchant
Dimensional Fissure
Pot of Avarice
Burial from a Different Dimension

Alternate strategy

The monster searchers above
Magical Merchant
Pot of Avarice
Prometheus, King of the Shadows
Deck Devastation Virus or Eradicator Epidemic Virus
Dimension Fusion

This strategy relies on using the Draw Engine of "Allure of Darkness" together with the well-known searchers "Sangan", "Emissary of the Afterlife", and using "Dimension Fusion" or "D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation" to Special Summon the searchers and destroy them to search up to 5 pieces of Exodia. A "Pot of Avarice" is a great backup if all of your Exodia pieces are dropped to the Graveyard and to fuel your draw.

First, use "Magical Merchant's" effect to send the Dark Searchers to your Graveyard. Then, use "Prometheus, King of the Shadows" to remove the 5 searchers from play and remove him from the field via "Deck Devastation Virus". With "Dimension Fusion" you Special Summon the searchers from your Removed from Play zone and destroy them to acquire the 5 pieces of Exodia instantly.


Heart of the Underdog ExodiaEdit

Heart of the Underdog
The 5 pieces of Exodia
Hand Destruction
Reload
Monster Recovery
20-30 Level 4 Normal Monsters with high stats.

The goal is to activate "Heart of the Underdog" and use its effect to draw as much of the deck as necessary. "Hand Destruction," "Monster Recovery," and "Reload" are used because they are Quick-Play Spells, so they can be activated during the "Draw Phase", making it easier to draw "Heart of the Underdog" more quickly and consistently without later interruption of "Heart of the Underdog's" effect.
Appropriate ExodiaEdit

The 5 pieces of Exodia
Appropriate x3
Hiro's Shadow Scout
The Bistro Butcher
Destiny HERO - Defender
Chainsaw Insect
Dark Bribe
Miracle Locus
Cup of Ace
Any cards to make your opponent draw cards, such as:
Dark World Dealings
One Day of Peace
Hand Destruction
Book of Eclipse

Additional options include:

Magical Stone Excavation
Upstart Goblin
Pot of Duality (to search for Appropriate in case you don't draw it)

The goal of this deck is to force your opponent to draw while you use the effect of Appropriate to draw more cards than your opponent. "Hiro's Shadow Scout" and "Cup of Ace" are great cards to use because they make your opponent draw cards while you chain your "Appropriate" to their draw, and also have other effects that help you. Cards that force your opponent to draw like "The Bistro Butcher" are pretty useful for this strategy, although this deck is not normally offensive. "Dark Bribe" is one of the staple cards in this deck. Use it to protect your appropriates. It should also be noted that "Mind Wipe" and "Disturbance Strategy" could also be used to reset your opponent's hand (in case they have something to stop you) and then use "Appropriate" to draw more cards. Also, an important thing to keep in mind is not to use cards like "Book of Eclipse" too often, unless your opponent has a small amount of monsters, or you have multiple "Appropriates" on the field. Also remember that at the end of your turn, you discard cards because of your large hand, but your opponent doesn't. This is why cards like "Disturbance Strategy" and "Dark World Dealings" are especially usefull.
Rainbow Ruins Brionac Exodia OTKEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Crystal Beasts
Witch of the Black Rose
Krebons
Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins
Emergency Teleport
Rare Value
Crystal Blessing
Crystal Beacon
Crystal Counter
Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

First of all, you must get "Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins" + 4 Crystal Beasts in your spell and trap card zones. Then you must have "Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" on the field. Use the effect of "Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins" to draw 1 card. Then use the effect of "Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" to return your "Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins" to your hand. Activate it and use it's effect again to draw 1 card. Repeat the same thing as many times as you need until you drew the 5 Exodia parts and win. Use "Rare Value", "Crystal Beacon", "Emergency Teleport", "Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus", "Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins" and "Witch of the Black Rose" to help you draw and empty your deck faster as well as synchro summoning your "Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" and fill your spell and trap cards zones to draw more cards with "Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins". Use "Crystal Counter" and "Crystal Blessing" to fill your spell and trap cards zones faster. If you successfully get all the needed cards on the field plus 5 cards in your hands, you win the duel.
X-Saber Exodia OTKEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Rainbow Life
X-Saber Axel or Card of Safe Return (Traditional only)
X-Saber Palomuro
XX-Saber Emmersblade

You will need 1 "X-Saber Palomuro" in your graveyard and 1 on your field. You will also need "X-Saber Axel" on your field and "Rainbow Life" face down. First you need to activate "Rainbow Life". Now you attack with "X-Saber Palomuro" against a monster which has 500 ATK or more than it. With "Rainbow Life" you will gain the Life Points that you should have lost and with "X-Saber Axel" you will draw a card and then you can pay 500 Life Points to summon the other "X-Saber Palomuro" from your graveyard and keep on attacking until you have drawn out your deck. This works with "Spirit Barrier", but only if you have a lot of life to spare. "XX-Saber Emmersblade" is a good choice to add as well as it thins the deck and searches for "X-Saber Palomuro" and "X-Saber Axel".

In Traditional Format you can use "Card of Safe Return" instead of "X-Saber Axel".
Bistro Butcher ExodiaEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Creature Swap
Nova Summoner
The Bistro Butcher
Shining Angel
UFOroid
UFO Turtle
Masked Dragon
Troop Dragon


Use "Creature Swap" on your "The Bistro Butcher" to put it on your opponent's side of the field in Attack Position. Have a "Nova Summoner" on your side of the field in Attack Position. Now just attack "The Bistro Butcher" and Special Summon another "Nova Summoner" once the other one gets destroyed. Once you run out of "Nova Summoners" Special Summon "Shining Angel". Keep on doing this and do it in this pattern : "Nova Summoner" > "Shining Angel" > "UFOroid" > "UFO Turtle" > "Masked Dragon" > "Troop Dragon". Each time your monster gets destroyed you will draw 2 cards because of "The Bistro Butcher".
Worm ExodiaEdit

All 5 pieces of "Exodia".
Worm Zero
3 "Worm Linx"
Future Fusion
Gold Sarcophagus or any card that can pull a spell card from your deck.
20+ "Worms" (preferably 6 or more different types of "Worms").
Any stall card you desire.

What you got to do is to try to get "Future Fusion" in your hand as soon as possible. If you draw it first turn, use it to send every "Worm" monster, except 1 - 2 "Worm Linx" to the graveyard. Regardless of whether or not you manage to summon "Worm Zero", what you will be drawing will either be the Exodia pieces or stall cards. Set "Worm Linx" on your side of the field, then either Flip Summon it or have your opponent attack it (with "Waboku" activated) and combine it with stall cards for great drawing power. This deck focuses heavily on just 1 card, "Future Fusion", and cards such as "Mystical Space Typhoon" or any spell negation cards will severely hinder the deck's capability to thin out and draw. Place a couple of "Dark Bribes" and "Spell Reclamation" (optional, only if it gets negated) to protect "Future Fusion". DD will ruin the deck as well, so beware running this deck against it. If you do run against it, you can use "Imperial Iron Wall" to stop all remove from play effects.
Chimeratech ExodiaEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Future Fusion
Deck thinning cards
Gold Sarcophagus
Cyber Dragon
Chimeratech Overdragon
Machine-type Monsters


Pretty similar to Worm Exodia, the Chimeratech Exodia focuses on using "Future Fusion" to Fusion Summon "Chimeratech Overdragon", thinning your deck and making it easy to draw Exodia.

Suggested combo:

Cyber Eltanin
Cyber Larva
Cyber Ouroboros
Cyber Valley
Most of your Machine-type Monsters should be Light.

After using Future Fusion and filling your graveyard, summon Cyber Eltanin and remove the Cyber Ouroboros (among others). You'll receive a colossal ATK/DEF monster and you'll be able to discard a card from your hand and draw new ones, making chances of getting Exodia higher. Cyber Larva and Cyber Valley are both usable to summon Cyber Eltanin and work for stalling. Plus the former works for Deck Thinning and the later for Drawing.

It's also possible to use Overload Fusion instead of Cyber Eltanin in order to remove Cyber Ouroboros from the deck and summon an even stronger monster (Chimeratech Overdragon), but this card can not be removed from the deck by Future Fusion effect.
Tele/Exodia OTKEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Caam, Serenity of Gusto
Mind Master
Telekinetic Charging Cell / Brain Research Lab
Another Psychic-type monster on your side of the field
Hand Destruction based cards.

Use the effect of "Mind Master" to send all Psychic Monsters in your Deck to your Graveyard (using the Equip Spell or the Field Spell to the negate Life Point payment), summoning "Caam" last. Then use "Caam's" effect to shuffle 2 "Caam" from your Graveyard into your Deck and draw a card. Then tribute "Caam" to summon another "Caam" from your deck with "Mind Master's" effect. Repeat until you have 2 "Caams" in your Graveyard again. Use cards whose effects cause you to discard, like "Dark World Dealings", "Hand Destruction", and similar cards to put a "Caam" you draw into the Graveyard. Repeat this process until you draw all five pieces of Exodia.

This can be made into an FTK with "Double Summon" or "Emergency Teleport". "One for One" also works to this extent but is less likely to work.

You can do this with two "Caam": instead, just shuffle a "Caam" and a Gusto into your Deck to draw a card and use "Mind Master's" effect to get the other one and a "Caam" into your Graveyard.

Cards that can search/summon Mind Master include "Shining Angel", "Damage Condenser", "One for One", "Doctor Cranium", and "Sangan".

"Pot of Avarice" speeds up drawing a little, as it lets you put five Gusta back into your deck and to draw two cards (the Psychics are then summoned by Mind Master).

"Hidden Armory" can search "Telekinetic Charging Cell" but will prevent you from Normal Summoning (so you must already have had the monsters out) and "Terraforming" and "Demise of the Land" can search "Brain Research Lab".
Inmato Exodia Deck Edit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Inmato x3
2 or more Cherry Inmatoes
Shien's Spy/Creature Swap
Mystic Tomato
Chainsaw Insect
Lord Poison
Rainbow Life/Spirit Barrier
Seven Tools of the Bandit/Trap Jammer
Card of Safe Return (to draw extra cards for each "Lord Poison" destroyed) (Traditional Format Only)
The Beginning of the End (Optional Support)
Armageddon Knight (Optional Support)
Mother Grizzly (Optional Support)

This strategy is based on the "Inmato" Engine combined with "Mystic Tomato" and "Lord Poison". First, use "Shien's Spy" to give your opponent "Chainsaw Insect" and use "Spirit Barrier" in order to prevent taking damage. Use "Mystic Tomato's" effect to Special Summon itself from the Deck every time you destroy it with "Chainsaw Insect", thus drawing 1 card; as an extension you may use "Lord Poison" to bring "Mystic Tomato" back from your graveyard. If you've Special Summoned enough "Tomatoes", Special Summon "Cherry Inmato" - its effect helps you Special Summon 2 (or 3, if you've Special Summoned 2 "Cherry Inmatoes") "Inmatoes" to your side of the field. Finish by getting your "Inmato" destroyed by battle. All in all, you will get to draw at least 9 cards. If you used "Rainbow Life", you could use "Supremacy Berry" to draw more cards. You can also use "The Beginning of the End" to draw three cards. You can also use "Mother Grizzly" to get three more draws as well as Special Summon "Lord Poison" which will then Special Summon "Mystic Tomato".

You could use "The Bistro Butcher" instead of "Chainsaw Insect". You should not use "Rainbow Life" or "Spirit Barrier" if you do this. This strategy will slightly be more risky as you will be losing life points but instead of drawing at least 9 cards you will draw at least 18 cards.

Suggested Cards:

The Bistro Butcher
Hand Destruction
Dark World Dealings

Lastly, you could use "Sasuke Samurai 3" instead of "Chainsaw Insect" or "The Bistro Butcher". This strategy requires you to use cards such as "Hand Destruction" in order to lose advantage while drawing as well as an Equip Spell Card (preferably "Fusion Sword Murasame Blade").

Suggested Cards:

Sasuke Samurai 3
Hidden Armory
An Equip Spell Card that gives at least 600 Attack.
Hand Destruction (For use during Battle Phase)
Reload (For use during Battle Phase)
Dark World Dealings
Reinforcement of the Army

DARK Heart Exodia DeckEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
DARK Normal Monsters
Veil of Darkness
Allure of Darkness
Pot of Avarice (Max one)
The Beginning of the End
Heart of the Underdog
Reload
Hand Destruction
Monster Recovery (Max one)

Use "Veil of Darkness" and "Heart of the Underdog" to go through your deck until you draw all of Exodia. This can be quite fast if you get at least two of the cards on your first turn. Use "Hand Destruction", "Reload", and "Monster Recovery" to gain more draws/sends during your draw phase. Use Pot of Avarice to return your Exodia pieces when using Veil of Darkness in case you hadn't drawn Heart of the Underdog just yet.
Emperor Swap Exodia DeckEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Swap Frog x3
By Order of the Emperor x3
Ultimate Offering x3
Solemn Wishes
Gravity Bind
Magic Planter x3
Upstart Goblin x3
2 or more Mask of Darkness
Dark Eruption
Legacy of Yata-Garasu x3
Magical Mallet
A Cat of Ill Omen
Sangan


This strategy works by stalling your opponent with "Gravity Binds" until you draw "Swap Frog", "By Order of the Emperor" and "Ultimate Offering". When you do so, Normal Summon "Swap Frog", activating his effect to send a monster to the Graveyard. Negate his effect with "By Order of the Emperor", drawing 1 card, and return "Swap Frog" to your hand with his own effect. Activate "Ultimate Offering", paying 500 Life Points to Summon the Frog again, creating a loop that ends until you run out of Life Points (Or, if you have "Solemn Wishes", infinite). Once you can't pay for "Ultimate Offering", use all card-drawing effects in your hand ("Upstart Goblin", "Magic Planter", etc.) and all "Magical Mallet"s to draw the remaining Exodia pieces.

"Dark Eruption" works with "Mask of Darkness" (allowing you to get back any pieces of the combo your opponent may have destroyed or, at least, "Legacy of Yata-Garasu"), "A Cat of Ill Omen" (a slow but effective way to gather all pieces of the combo), "Sangan" (for "Swap Frog" or even to skip the combo completely and get the Exodia pieces) and, obviously, the 5 pieces of Exodia (in case your opponent uses a discarding effect).
Watt/Exodia OTKEdit

This OTK uses the effect of "Watthydra" equipped with "Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce" to inflict 1000 Damage to the opponent and to add 2 Exodia Pieces from your deck to your hand within 2 turns. Using this effect every turn will allow the player to add 2 Exodia Piece the next turn after its first use. Spell Cards like "Gold Sarcophagus" and "Pot of Duality" are used to maximize the effectiveness of the OTK. "Messenger of Peace" will also protect "Watthydra" from being destroyed by battle.

Cards for this Deck include:

5 Pieces of Exodia
Level 4 Watt monsters (Eg. "Wattgiraffe", "Wattpheasant" etc.)
"Wattkiwi" or "Wattberyx (This is a Level 3 Watt Tuner Monster)
"Watthydra"
"Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce"
"Messenger of Peace"
"Pot of Duality"
"Gold Sarcophagus"

Of course, Trap Cards like "Mirror Force" and "Dimensional Prison" which slow down the OTK must be anticipated with cards like "Royal Decree", "Trap Stun" and "Seven Tools of the Bandit".
Traditional Format Exodia DecksEdit

Note: All decks in this section contain some cards that are only allowed in the Traditional Format.
Manticore's Exodia EngineEdit

Foolish Burial
1 Manticore of Darkness in your hand and 1 in your deck
Card of Safe Return

Use "Foolish Burial" to send the "Manticore of Darkness" from your deck to the graveyard. At the End Phase, send the on-field "Manticore of Darkness" to the graveyard to revive the other "Manticore of Darkness". You get to draw 1 card due to "Card of Safe Return's" effect. Keep repeating until you draw all 5 cards of Exodia. You'd want a card to counter "D.D. Crow", or it will remove "Manticore of Darkness" from play, ruining your loop. "Prohibition" and "Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer" can stop "D.D. Crow" in its tracks.

Alternatively, you could use "Generation Shift" instead of "Foolish Burial" - or indeed, any spell or trap where you discard a card as a cost.
Infinite Equip Draw LoopEdit

Gearfried the Iron Knight
Butterfly Dagger - Elma
Royal Magical Library

First, "Royal Magical Library" and "Gearfried the Iron Knight" must be both face-up on the field. Equip "Gearfried the Iron Knight" with "Butterfly Dagger - Elma". Due to "Gearfried the Iron Knight's" effect, "Butterfly Dagger - Elma" will be destroyed, but because of "Butterfly Dagger - Elma's" effect, it will be returned to your hand instead. Also, "Royal Magical Library" will receive a counter. When there are 3 counters on "Royal Magical Library", you get to draw a card. So keep using "Butterfly Dagger - Elma" until you draw all 5 cards of Exodia. (based on the fact that Butterfly Dagger - Elma is banned in Advanced you can only use this deck in causal and Traditional play)
Makyura's ExodiaEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Makyura the Destructor
Morphing Jar
Hand Destruction
Any Traps with Draw effect

This combo focus into drawing the 5 pieces of Exodia in the opponent's turn. You must discard "Makyura the Destructor" on the opponent's turn with "Morphing Jar" (to get a best hand and activate the key Traps) or "Hand Destruction" (not to waste the Exodia pieces already into your hand). Due to Makyura's effect you might activate "Reckless Greed", "Good Goblin Housekeeping" or even "Legacy of Yata-Garasu" right from your hand on your opponent's turn, turning into a deadly FTK when your opponent least expects it.

Another combo that works similarly is "Temple of the Kings" with "Sixth Sense", allowing you to draw cards easily or even milling your Deck with complacency.
Dragonfrog ExodiaEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
3 Substitoad
3 D. Tribe or DNA Surgery
3 Super Rejuvenation
20+ "Frog" monsters
Staple draw cards used in Frog Burn FTK

The idea behind this deck is to summon a frog monster alongside "Substitoad" as you would in Frog FTK, turn them into Dragons with either "D. Tribe" or "DNA Surgery", activate "Super Rejuvenation", then repeatedly tribute your frogs using "Substitoad". When you end your turn, the effect of "Super Rejuvenation" will activate causing you to draw a card for each Dragon-Type monster that you tributed that turn; if you tributed enough "Dragonfrogs", you will draw until you eventually have all 5 pieces of Exodia in hand!
Colossal LoopEdit

All 5 pieces of Exodia
Colossal Fighter
Card of Safe Return
Any monster with more ATK than your Colossal Fighter
Spirit Barrier or Rainbow Life

First, Synchro Summon "Colossal Fighter" and active "Card of Safe Return". After this, active "Spirit Barrier" or "Rainbow Life". Now you must use "Colossal Fighter" to attack the opponent's monster and the effect of "Spirit Barrier"/"Rainbow Life" prevent the Damage. "Colossal Fighter" will revive itself in attack position and active the effect of "Card of Safe Return", allowing you to draw 1 card. Repeat this process until you have all 5 pieces of Exodia in your hand. Cards like "Axe of Fools" can be used to boost your opponent's monster's attack while negating their effect, preventing any harmful effects from hurting you.

What did you do, type in Exodia on Yugioh wikia and copy and past from there. O wait, yes you did.

Maybe not everything is an exact copy from there, but you took a lot of stuff from that website. Next time, try to add your own opinion on here.

And if you are going to copy and paste, then give credit where it is due please.

Here is just one part of what is on Yugioh Wikia.

"Forbidden One", known as "Sealed One" (封ふう印いんされし Fūinsareshi) in the Japanese version, is an archetype of cards first released in Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon and was the first group of cards to provide an automatic win. The main card, "Exodia the Forbidden One" (often referred to as "Exodia's head") is also one of the first five Effect Monsters ever to be released. The "Forbidden One" cards are some of the most iconic cards in the series, being well known for their Automatic Win effect and how, in the anime, Yugi was the first person to ever Summon "Exodia" (and in the first episode). While many people simply refer to these cards as "Exodia" cards, only the head of Exodia actually contains the name, while the other pieces are called "Forbidden One" in any card effect that refers to them; when used elsewhere on this page, "Exodia" refers only to the card "Exodia the Forbidden One" or the completed monster.

While the original "Forbidden One" set was extremely hard to obtain (all five pieces were Ultra Rare), they have since been reprinted in lesser rarities; a common practice is to print "Exodia" as an Ultra Rare and the limbs as Commons, making the set much easier to obtain. While the "Forbidden One" Deck was perhaps one of the first Deck types, it still remains a popular one, being supported through several new cards (specifically, new draw engines and draw loops).

"Exodia" is one of the few cards that can actually declare an automatic win. Others include "Destiny Board", "Final Countdown", "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord", "Last Turn", "Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes", "The Creator God of Light, Horakhty", and the Match Winners.

Notably, "Exodia" was the only monster ever specifically mentioned in the rulebooks, even having the rule that should the five pieces be in your hand at any time you win the duel. This was, however, prior to other cards being released with effects that declared an automatic win. "Exodia" has since been removed from the rulebooks, as the effects written on the head are sufficient enough.
