Card Me: Gagaga Girl

Every card game has their beloved characters, and Yu-Gi-Oh! has many such characters to its name. One iconic card for the newer Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL series is Gagaga Girl. “Gagaga” references the 我 kanji, which is used to indicate physical impact in Japanese manga/comics (e.g. like a POW sound effect).

You can target 1 “Gagaga Magician” you control; this card’s Level becomes the Level of that monster. An Xyz Monster that was Summoned using only this card and other “Gagaga” monsters as Xyz Material gains this effect.
● When it is Xyz Summoned: You can target 1 Special Summoned monster your opponent controls; its ATK becomes 0.

Gagaga Girl is this Yu-Gi-Oh! generation’s Dark Magician Girl equivalent.

Back in the day, Dark Magician Girl was the special assistant/partner character for Dark Magician.

When Dark Magician Girl hit the scene, she became one of the most popular characters in the entire Yu-Gi-Oh! series.



Simply put, Dark Magician Girl became a staple and well-respected character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise.

In regards to Gagaga Girl, she has a lot of similarities to Dark Magician Girl that are quite evident.

For one thing, Gagaga Girl is the special assistant/partner character for Gagaga Magician.

There are also random traits that these Gagaga cards have in common with their older-generation counterparts.

These traits include:

  • The Dark Magician and Gagaga duos are all Spellcaster types.
  • All of these cards are DARK Attribute.
  • Each Gagaga counterpart is three Levels lower than the respective Dark Magician ones. Dark Magician is Level 7, whereas Gagaga Magician is Level 4. Dark Magician Girl is Level 6, whereas Gagaga Girl is Level 3.
  • Each Gagaga counterpart has exactly 1,000 less ATK points than their respective Dark Magician ones. Dark Magician has 2,500 ATK, whereas Gagaga Magician has 1,500 ATK. Dark Magician Girl has 2,000 ATK, whereas Gagaga Girl has 1,000 ATK.
  • The Dark Magician cards are signature Monsters for Yugi Muto, Yu-Gi-Oh!’s main protagonist. The Gagaga cards are signature Monsters for Yuma Tsukumo, Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL’s main protagonist.

Not a lot of people technically run the Gagaga Girl card in their decks because of how niche she is (though her effects are nonetheless powerful and useful). I still think Gagaga Girl is a slick character. She fights with a cellphone, yo. Plus, “Gagaga Girl” is fun to say really fast.
