McDonald's is using the spell card Polymerization to fuse Yu-Gi-Oh! and Hello Kitty as Happy Meal toys around the world.


It is still an absolute crime 4kids changed the Japanese card name "Yuugou" meaning "Fusion" in English, a simple 7 letter word, to "Polymerization", a longer and not so simple to say word (depending on your age & since 4kids is for kids... you know).
