It allows me to draw two cards from my deck!
There is no way you could have known that!

Luckily Pot of Greed was banned before the end of GX, so you didn't have to hear it in 5Ds.
I'm amazed there was no Speed Spell - Pot of Greed. :D

I wonder if there's supercuts of other overly-used things in the later series.

Seeing GX at all is a super cringe, although I honestly think I might hate ZeXal and Arc V just as much.
Honestly, though, I haven't paid any attention to any of the past 3 anime.
I caught a couple episodes of 5Ds, enough to know it's stomachable, and caught the episode 1 of both ZeXal
and Arc V, enough to hate the main characters and find the shows awful.
If the original show was as bad as GX, ZeXal, or Arc V, I'd probably never have gotten into Yu-Gi-Oh.

Idk how much of GX you watched subbed but it's actually infinitely better, and season 4 is really good. 5Ds also gets destroyed by the dub but not as much. Haven't seen enough of ZeXal or Arc V to comment

These two clips pretty much show how badly GX was crushed by the dub

Yeah, the Yu-Gi-Oh English dubs have always been cheaply and badly done, but Jaden as a character always annoyed me.
I also really find the concept of a school for playing a game really dumb, even in a world where the game is so well
loved that it's played professionally, especially putting that school on a remote volcanic island with such a disgusting class sytem.

Zexal and Arc V do the same thing with those really annoying, hyper main characters
and everyone else is such an exaggerated caricature instead of a developed character.

It's just not good anime that nobody would watch if they weren't playing the card game.

The original was good enough they made a real game from it.
The rest of them are promotional material for a game that already exists.
Instead of selling a game that promoted a show, they started selling a show that promoted a game.

Jaden is not the same hyper character in the dub, you'll be pleased to hear

Nah, I've seen bits of subtitled Judai, and he's still terrible.
I watched the Bonds Beyond Time movie subbed with him, Yugi, and Yusei, and he's as bad there as in the English dub.
