James Steven Harrison (born February 6, 1987) is a Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game player. Harrison began playing the game upon its release in 1996 but began competitively in 2003. Harrison is regarded as the greatest player of all-time. He was the first person to win multiple Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championships and to win consecutive tournaments. Harrison retired from competitive play in 2009 before returning for a few minor tournaments in 2015 before announcing a full return in late 2016. Despite this he remains the only person to win all four majors, the world championships, their specific continental championships, the Dragon Duel and the Shonen Jump Championships, now known as the Championship Series.
