Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Tally
The following table is a tally of all Top 4 finishes in the Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship main events, based on the total placement count of each region.
This ranking is ordered in a similar style as the Olympics – they are sorted by the amount of 1st-place finishes, followed by 2nd-place finishes, then 3rd-place finishes, and finally 4th-place finishes.
