The Summoned Skull is one of the most iconic monsters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, and it’s no surprise that it’s been turned into a Funko pop.
The Summoned Skull is a powerful monster that dark magicians can summon, and it’s known for its fearsome appearance.
The Funko pop captures this perfectly, with its detailed sculpt and menacing expression.
Summoned Skull is a demon-type monster in the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game. It is one of the strongest monsters of its kind, with high attack and defense points.
However, what really sets Summoned Skull apart is its ability to confuse and mislead enemies. By using its powers of darkness, Summoned Skull can cause opponents to make poor decisions and even abandon their strategies altogether.
As a result, Summoned Skull is a powerful and feared opponent on the battlefield.

Although many people know the series from the anime, Yu-Gi-Oh! originally appeared in the manga.
Kakuzi Takahashi’s early career was not a great success, but that all changed when he released Yu-Gi-Oh! in 1996, published by Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
It wasn’t until 1999 that the work was given a physical collectible version of the card game and, one year later, an anime adaptation.
As bizarre as it sounds, the series’ focus was not exactly on monster card dueling.
In the original plot of the manga, the protagonist Yugi Muto faces several conflicts that are resolved through various games.
The card game, however, was only introduced during the plot.
Another curiosity is that the card game seen in Yu-Gi-Oh! was inspired by another classic Trading Card Game: Magic: The Gathering.
So much so that in the manga, the card game was called “Magic and Wizards” – a clear allusion to the original Magic TCG, released in 1993.
The fact is that the inspiration was right on the money.
The success was such that Takahashi had to change the focus from Yu-Gi-Oh! manga to the card game and released the physical TGC of the series in 1999, much to the fans’ demand.
Many may not know, but Yu-Gi-Oh! has been in the Guinness Book of Records a few times.
In 2009, it won the rank of most successful card game with over 22 and a half billion cards sold. In 2011, this was repeated, with over 25 billion cards sold by that year.
Today, the series holds two Guinness Book titles: the best-selling turn-based strategy series on consoles and the world’s largest Trading Card Games tournament.
The last bit of trivia is that, even after 26 years, Yu-Gi-Oh! is still relevant.
According to Konami, the fiscal year ending in March resulted in a revenue of $2.3 billion. And the highlight was the Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel game that hit the 30 million download mark in just three months.
And judging that Takahashi’s creation has been able to build an empire estimated to be worth $90 billion, it is hard to imagine that it will not continue to do so in the years to come.
