Tragoedia Attack

Tragoedia is the main antagonist of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga.


Back in the times of ancient Egypt when Aknamkanon ruled, he was one of the citizens of the village of Kul Elna, who gained an upper position in the Pharaoh's entourage as a court astronomer. However, after learning about the massacre that decimated his village (ordered by Akhenaden so as to create the Millennium Items), his hatred and anger led to the creation of an extremely corrupted and powerful ka, that being Tragoedia. While judged by the original priests who held the Millennium Rod and Millennium Scale, and by Akhenaden himself, the criminal was judged through the ba Winged Kuriboh, which was white at the time, but turned black after coming into contact with the malice inside the man's heart. Tragoedia was sealed then, though his power was so great that he remained aware of himself even while sealed, and so his tablet was smashed and its remains buried in the royal tombs. Akhenaden and the other priests vowed to take the memory of what happened there to their graves, so as not to alarm the Pharaoh.

Three thousand years later the burial chamber in which Tragoedia lay sealed was opened by archeologists, offering the monster freedom and letting him pursue his revenge. Possessing people, he ended up gaining control over the principal of the American Duel Academia, and thus the Academia itself. From there, he dispatched students David Rabb and Reggie MacKenzie as a mean of gaining the spirit cards, such as Winged Kuriboh.

As an embodiment of wickedness and corruption, Tragoedia can possess people at will and use the power of darkness as a mean to restrain, kill or plunge any duel into a dark counterpart of itself, much akin to a Shadow Game. He is however extremely weak against the powers of the Light and Darkness Dragon, calling it the Feather of Ma'at, a reference to his trial through the Millennium Scale.
