What makes it special? Man-Eater Bug was one of the 10 original Super Rare cards featured in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG’s first set released in North America: Legend of Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Collectors hoping to pull a Man-Eater Bug from a booster pack had a 1:5 chance of pulling one for each box they opened.

Did you know? Man-Eater Bug is a Flip Monster (Flip Effect Monster), meaning its stated card effect takes place whenever the card is flipped over to be facing up. If timed correctly, these effects can have game-changing consequences. Man-Eater Bug is one of only four Flip Monsters in the 2002 Legend of Blue-Eyes White Dragon set.
