A number of Yu-gi-oh! cards have unusual, inconsistent abbreviations in their card names that stand out.
Perhaps the most notable is the Lord of D.:
This card abbreviates the word which is clearly supposed to represent "dragon" without apparent reason for doing so. The word is definitely not too long to fit - other card names can testify to that. The word itself is also not taboo - it appears in the names of other cards, as well as in it's own body text in describing a creature type (Dragon-Type, a core creature type).
Speaking of dragons, another example comes in the form of the Red Eyes B. Dragon. Here, the word "black" has been abbreviated. Again, proof that the name wouldn't have been too long otherwise can be seen by comparing it to the Blue Eyes White Dragon, which is slightly longer in its first word and identical in length in the third word in question. The name "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" is also spoken aloud prominently in the show, as it is a trademark card held by main character Joey Wheeler.
Perhaps the most awkward is the card, "The A. Forces." In this particular case, I can not even tell what this letter stands for despite analyzing the context (perhaps its the same word as the one found here? Joking, of course, but that would actually give it a reason to be censored!)
What is the reasoning behind this haphazard abbreviating of seemingly random words on these cards?
