In Ancient Egypt Ra was one of the three ancient gods who were able to be summoned by the Pharoh, making it one of the three most powerful spirit monsters in existence. The only monsters to rival the three Egyptian Gods were Diabound and the White Dragon.
When Maximillion Pegasus created the Duel Monsters card game he searched far and wide to find the carvings of the three Egyptian gods. Despite his archaeological teams misfortunes Pegasus hand painted the designs for the God Cards which released their spirits back into the real world. Pegasus then sealed the cards in the tomb within the original carvings though all but Obelisk would be stolen by rare hunters. The Winged Dragon of Ra was used by Marik as his signature card.
