Ultimate Yu-Gi-Oh! Filler List: Complete Skippable Fillers Guide

Yu-Gi-Oh! is by far the best anime involving games and the one with most entertaining fillers.

The manga has two adaptations, Yu-Gi-Oh! (1998) and Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters (2000).

The 1998 version heavily abridged from the manga and changed many of its details in the anime. The 2000 version is a remastered series and focuses on the Duel Monsters games.

The 1998 Yu-Gi-Oh! has 27 episodes, of which 8 are reported fillers. While the 2000 Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters is a 224-episode series with 90 reported fillers bringing the filler percentage to 40%.

Other than the main series, there are 6 spin-offs which have a combined total of 767 spin-off episodes with 83 reported as fillers.

Thus, the filler percentage of 11% is very low. Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens is the 6th spin-off which is currently airing and has no fillers as of now.
