How Much Money Does Yugioh Make?

In today’s blog post, I’ll answer the question of how much does Yugioh make, both in terms of the real company, and of the fictional character Yugi Moto. For my part, the Yugioh franchise has brought in $2.8 billion dollars worth of revenue each year to the Konami Inc. Corporation, which by the way is a $100B market cap stock (I know I couldn’t believe it either.) The Mobile Yugioh games, cards and playstation games drive $2.8B per year worth of revenue to the Konami inc corporation, and Yugioh has grossed over $1,000,000,000,000.00 Yen, at more than $10,000,000,000.00 USD and 35 billion cards sold worldwide. Yes, the Yugioh company is an extremely large company, but how much does Yugi Moto make as a character in the show? My estimate is about $50,000 per year in income in the earlier series of the show and about $250,000 per year once he gets all of the Egyptian God Cards, I’ll explain why in this blog post, subscribe for more details and information!

How Much Money Does Yugioh Make? The Konami Revenue Maker

So, in real life, the Yugioh series earns something like $2.8 Billion US dollars per year for the Konami Inc. Corporation. Consequently, this makes up about 20% or so of the Konami Incorporated’s overall revenue. Yes, Yugioh is a massive revenue maker indeed, and actually, I remember I used to have the debate when I was younger about how Yugioh was making more money than Harry Potter. The Harry Potter series has somewhat died out, however Yugioh strives on, making billions of dollars per year in revenue, and with more than 1 Trillion Yen in overall revenue having been generated!

How Much Money Does Yugi Moto Make in Season 1?

So that’s how much the actual Yugioh series makes as a whole, but how much does Yugi Moto make in the series. Well, in Season 1 and 2, it looks like he is living in a 1 bedroom apartment, by himself, without roommates. This leads me to believe that he is making somewhere around $50,000 per year, mainly from probably his earnings from Grandpa’s card shop. And while Yugi is still in High School in the series, it looks like the type of world he in is similar economics-wise to say how 2040 will be, in that you need to really scrap and make a lot of money to live modestly well.

Here’s How Much Money Yugi Moto Made After Getting The Egyptian God Cards

Once Yugi gets the Egyptian God Cards however, it is pretty apparent that Yugi is making somewhere in the range of like $250,000 per year to $1,000,000.00 per year, with likely a high six figure bonus for him winning the tournament finals. Yugi is shown on TV winning everything, and likely this would lead to a lot of media coverage and endorsement deals for him. Assuming these tournament wins that he is getting over and over again also yield bonuses, say Yugi is pulling in $500,000 per year, a far cry from Seto Kaiba’s $1,000,000,000.00 per year, but not too shabby at all.
