Synchro Gods

The Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Trading Card Game and the anime series have introduced us to unique legendary cards that prove their power to be like no other. First, there were the three Egyptian Gods, Obelisk the Tormentor, Slifer the Sky Dragon, and The Winged Dragon of Ra. Then, in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, the three Sacred Beasts were introduced and based on their appearances, said to be equivalents to the Egyptian Gods. The Sacred Beast cards actually held the honors of being playable "God" cards first. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! R manga, the Wicked Gods came along and in the card game, they were made into Dark attribute monsters in order to be legal playable cards. In Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, the equivalents seemed to be the terrifying Earthbound Immortals, but there were seven as opposed to the traditional three, so it didn't seem to be the case. As for the Egyptian God cards, their original versions are considered illegal, but now they are being remade into playable cards and appropriately enough, have had their abilities toned down in order to be legit. So what are the new "God" cards for Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's? Well, here's the answer. They are currently called "Polar Gods" in Japanese and there are three of them, named after the Norse gods. Like the Egyptian Gods, they are also exclusive in that they are Divine attribute monsters, but this time, they are all Synchro Monsters, and to be summoned, they currently require a Tuner Monster and two non-Tuner monsters, sticking to the rule of sacrificing three monsters on the field. They seem to be overly powerful and now they are planned to be released in Japan's newest upcoming booster pack, Storm of Ragnarok. And you can be assured that they'll be toned down quite heavily. But still, what awesome power they possess...
