Who among the Duel Monsters, GX, Arc-V, 5Ds and Zexal characters will have some pets?
is a very big question…
off the top of my head, Honda already canonically has a German
Shepherd named Blankey
and Mai adopt a cat, Mai adores that fat tabby but Jou likes to
complain about the “asshole cat” (he actually loves it, its name
is Bacon, don’t ask why)
and Ryo also both have cats due to their connection to ancient Egypt
and their attunement to the spirit world (they like having them
around to warn them when something’s coming). Yugi’s cat is a
gorgeous, sleek calico called Hecate, Ryo’s is a fluffy af tuxedo cat
obviously has Pharaoh…
Misawa has a kitten named Schrodinger because he’s a fucking nerd
gets a falconry license and works mostly with a big peregrine falcon
called Echo (because birds are the closest genetically to dinosaurs~)
but he also has a big iguana named Potato.
has a pair of giant huskies called Muffin and Cinnamon. They like to
dog pile him every time he comes in the door and they’re constantly
trying to sit on his lap even tho they’re too big
has three gerbils; they’re called Phillips, Torx, and Hex.
has this pretty cream colored cat named Prince and that cat gets
pampered to no end from both him and Carly.
has a big bay draft horse called Dante.
has a ball python named Genevieve; she loves it but is under strict
orders to keep her far away from Yusei’s gerbils.
100% has a giant tank full of fish and each one has a name and he
says good morning to each one individually.
has the biggest fucking mutt when he moves out, it’s basically his
height and drags him everywhere; his name is Choco cause he’s dark
brown like chocolate.
gets a horse named Pegasus, and Mizael has a python called Jinlong.
already lives in a house full of animals…
gets a therapy cat after the war is over, her name is Reiko and she
adores both Akaba brothers, following them around and cuddling all
probably becomes a catlady and just adopts all of the cats.
K8wolfx: Yeah I’m excited for Yugioh Arc V, benorianlafume. I can’t wait to watch it!
And Yugioh Arc 5dxal? That’s what they’re calling it? Yeah that’s fine by me. But if we keep having so many different spinoffs of Yugioh, I’m afraid it will become impossible to come up with a name for it in the future! Thank you nuvoladitempesta!
Okay, so if you could switch which series each of the YGO!Protags were in, which one would you put them in and how do you think the series would change?
I’m just gonna bump them all over
one, so first we have Yuya as the protagonist of DM.
I feel like he would be so BORED.
The first half of the series, everyone stands on opposite sides of a
field and are pinned down to boards, and even once the Duel Disk
shows up, there’s still mostly just standing around. Yuya needs to
be able to move around!! He’d probably start inventing Entertainment
Dueling right then and speed the timeline up too much lol. He’d
probably do a little bit better emotionally though, because he
wouldn’t get constantly separated from the ones he cares about and
the world wouldn’t be so screwed up and there are more nice people
flitting around in the background of DM than there are in Arc V (like
literally all of the background people in Arc V are assholes no
wonder Yuya is so stressed all the time).
Yugi is now the protagonist of GX.
Basically things go the same except Yugi doesn’t turn into the
Supreme King because he’s more of an attentive personality than Judai
and wouldn’t get separated from his group if he could help it. He
might get angry, and
in fact I’d actually like to see how Yugi would react to having his
friends taken from him in the way Judai’s friends were (what would he
do if it was Anzu, Jonouchi, Honda, and Ryo that were sacrificed for
that blood rune book thing? Hmmm….I might smell an AU). But
overall I think it would be a little less heart breaking than GX was.
Judai is the protagonist of 5D’s,
and he probably startsout with depression and
cynicism because he has to grow up in this shithole called Satellite.
Judai would have to struggle along to get better at machinery,
because while Yusei just seems to have a knack for it, Judai isn’t a
very studious person and would have to fumble his way through things.
He’d probably have more character development than Yusei still,
though lol. Duuuude wait, Judai with a marker.
And Yusei is the protagonist of
Zexal. Shit does not go down the way it did because Yusei is the
oldest one there and he doesn’t take this shit, like dammit kids stop
fighting already *picks up Vector by the scruff of his neck and
shakes him a bit* Yusei isn’t quite as trusting as Yuma is; he’s
kind, but he’s not going to get himself screwed over quite as easily.
And dude it would be so funny to see him just tossed into Zexal,
because he’s not only the tallest and oldest one in the main group
then, but his color palette just doesn’t match Zexal at all dude this
is the funniest image in my head, scowly little Yusei pulling apart
Kaito and Shark with their arms flailing like toddlers and like stop
Yusei punching Heartland in the face oh gosh yes
And then Yuma is in Arc V.
he’s gonna die
Yuma feels just about as much as Yuya does, if not more, and trusts
so much more. He’s going to be doubly devastated by Sora and Dennis’
respective betrayals, by all of the fighting and chaos and
destruction. And in Arc V, Yuya gets separated from his group A LOT.
Yuma doesn’t get separated from his friends often, and not usually
for long (we don’t talk about that time with Astral). He’s going to
be broken before the end of the first arc because he’s alone and
isolated and broken by everyone betraying him and all of the fighting
and death oh no my poor baby
Hey, another fan of ALL the yugioh spin-offs AND DM! Yay! Say, there's something that's crossed my mind, and I decided to ask you because you have such thoughtful responses to asks: if (hypothetically, like for the 20th anniversary or something) Arc V did a side-arc that had the ex-protagonists of all the previous shows reappearing and meeting as adults and meeting teenage Yuya, (kinda like BBT but not just one short movie), what would you like to see happen?
Oh geez I could go on for hours about this
Mostly, I just need to see them bonding. I want to see them
poring over cards together and geeking out over potential combos. I
want to see the older ones taking Yuya under their wing and playing
friendly games with him and then exchanging ideas for how to better
each other’s decks and playing styles. I want to see Yuma join Yuya
in an Action Duel and have a total blast jumping around and snagging
Action Cards. I want to see Yusei introducing Yugi to Riding Duels
and seeing that starry eyed look in Yugi’s eyes at the idea of how
far dueling has progressed past his time. I want to see Judai taking
Yuma and Yuya under his wing and fighting off anyone that tries to
beat them down or turn dueling into a suffering activity for either
of them. I want to see the whole group just sitting around a table
and eating hamburgers and drinking milkshakes and laughing and joking
and exchanging stories about the crazy shit they’ve seen. I want to
see them comparing their magical artifacts and having mock “I bet
my adventure was crazier than yours” battles.
I just want to see them all being friends. I would pay
to have a slice of life anime about them all meeting up after the
events of their series and just hanging out, getting used to living a
normal, not adventurous life again, having dumb adventures to the
grocery store where Yuya and Yuma almost knock over a display and
Judai and Yugi get distracted by trading cards and Yusei has to
scramble to keep them all together like a mother hen, I want a
generic slice of life comedy anime about them with all of the generic
episodes like the beach episodes with them breaking watermelons
together and stuff
What are some of your favorite duels in the YGO franchise?
the Ceremonial Duel in DM. In GX I adore Judai and Johan’s two tag
duels (one against Martin/Yubel and one against Fujiwara) as well as
their duel against each other, and also I have a soft spot for
Chronos versus Camula because that’s where I started to like Chronos
as a character.
favorite 5D’s duel is Yusei versus Aki and Carly versus Jack (I like
to see my ships fight each other I guess pffft). I also like the
duel with Jack, Lua, and Luka versus Aporia (right? It was versus
Aporia? I just remember that’s the one where Lua FINALLY got his
goddamn Signer mark).
I really like all of the Yuma versus Shark duels (wow I have a thing
for my ships dueling each other pffft). Astral versus Dark Mist and
Tetsuo versus Dark Mist are good ones too, as well as most of
Arc V my FAVORITE duel EVER is Yuya versus Sawatari with the
Yosenjus, closely followed by Masumi versus Yuzu the second time, and
I liked the first Yuya versus Reiji duel (not so much the
second…kinda broke my heart). I love Yuya v. Sawatari because
like…that was such a happy duel. They got to push each other to
the limits and show the audience an amazing entertainment duel, and
it was like…the last duel where Yuya got to duel because it made
him happy and because he wanted to make people smile. All the duels
after became fights with such high stakes and more heartbreak than
smiles for Yuya.
Oooh, how about best YGO finales then? (Obviously excluding Arc V)
Okay so in order for me:
aaaand an explanation
DM gave me some of the best closure in
a franchise ever. I feel like maybe I’m part of a minority but I was
glad that Atem returned to the afterlife. I was glad that he was
able to find peace. And although I haven’t watched the whole of DM
in Japanese, I have seen the
last scene that was unfortunately cut out of the dub, in which Yugi
gives the last speech about how every story ends in the light, and we
get to see pretty much every character moving on with their lives and
finding their own paths through their existence.
just…it was so peaceful and reassuring to me. To see everyone
having grown up, having made it through their problems to look
forwards towards the bright future. It was beautiful to see Yugi
having grown through his interactions with Atem and to know that he
was going to make it somewhere new by his own power, and it was
reassuring to me to see Atem return where he belonged, to see that
great weight leave him because he was finally able to go home, a
place that had been denied to him for so long.
almost the same kind of feeling to me. Like you knew not everything
was perfect, Judai was still going to be struggling with his past and
his guilt, but he was moving forward. The world was open and there
was possibility there. I felt good seeing him having reached a point
where he felt like he was able to walk forward. The only reason this
one is lower is because I just prefer DM’s final speech and the
flashing around to all
of the characters, including some of the “filler arc” characters
like the biker boys and such. I liked how DM let us see everyone
moving into their own lives and stories. I get why GX didn’t really
do that because they were just leaving school right then, but I would
have liked to see flashes of them finding their dreams and moving
towards their new stories too.
is lower because I didn’t really feel a total closure. I get why
they ended it the way they did, but I wanted reunion scenes, real
reunion scenes. I didn’t want to see them all flying off on a new
adventure. I wanted the closure of the other two that told me that
there were no more adventures except the adventures of living an
ordinary life and striving for your dreams. I didn’t like the way it
felt like there was still more of the story to be told, like there
was a “missing arc,” a new enemy to fight and defeat that we
didn’t get to see the closure of. I guess I just would have
preferred to see that there were
no more enemies, they had won and now they could start to live again,
to find the paths that they wanted, in the same way that DM did that.
5D’s is the lowest probably more for personal reasons than anything
else…when I watched the finale, I was kind of in a bad emotional
place and I had already procrastinated watching the last two episodes
for almost two weeks because I just wasn’t ready for endings of any
kind. I was scared about certain things that were ending for myself
(I think I was almost done at community college at the time and I was
going to have to move to my new campus soon) and I didn’t want to
think about anything ending, especially not the show that I was so
attached to at the time. And then…I don’t know it just wasn’t as
cathartic for me as DM, GX, or even Zexal was. I was frustrated with
the stagnation of Yusei’s character. I was frustrated with him for
choosing to stand still. It felt like the opposite of the message of
the series, the series that continually told me to reach and stretch
for the future and what it could offer, to never give up reaching, to
keep walking forward, and then…here was Yusei, just…staying put.
Not taking the steps forward that he had been talking about and
impressing on me, as a viewer, that were important. He chose to
stand still and stay where he was and it just wasn’t…it wasn’t good
for me, especially where I was at the time. That’s the finale that
made me cry the most and not in a good, releasing way, it made me cry
because I just didn’t want to accept the ending.
If you had to choose a favorite Yugioh series (DM, GX, 5d's, etc), which would it be and why?
I am sorry anon, but the question you have asked is impossible for me to answer. I love every series for it’s own reasons, and there is no way that I could pick a favorite from between them.
DM I love for it being the first series I watched, for the Egyptian mythology entwined with it, for it’s fantastic villains and inspirational protagonists that inspire me to be stronger and to believe in more.
GX I love for its sensitive dealing with the nature of depression and hurt, how to deals with a protagonist that subverts the idiot hero trope by revealing a complex, unstable character underneath, and how it subverts the cliche of light versus dark and gives the dark more of the desirable traits.
5D’s I love because it deals with so many relevant topics, like the experience of being in an abusive relationship, police brutality, racism/classism, and humanity’s ability to find their own future even when confronted with destiny. Plus I love the setting and the duel gimmick, the motorcyles are hella cool and Synchro Summons are probably my favorite main type of summon (since apparently Ritual summons aren’t main anymore)
Zexal I love for its variety of beautiful, engaging characters, for how even though it seems like it’s going to be a cute, sweet anime, it delves into the darkness of the realities of war and how loss affects a person’s mind, how it’s not afraid to show its protagonist cry when he loses someone, how it deals with what happens when trust is broken between two people, and then found again.
And Arc-V I love for its attention to fixing the mistakes of the past, how it gives the female protagonist her own story line and character development aside from the protagonist’s story, I love it because I have never related more to a Yu-Gi-Oh protagonist than I have with Yuya, and his simultaneous confidence and insecurity, I love it because it’s already dealing with the plot and feels as though everything has already been planned ahead of time for once, so we can see the foreshadowing from the beginning.
So, anon, I couldn’t possibly choose one. They’re all so incredibly precious to me and there is no way I could ever view one over another.
Thank you for the ask, and I apologize if this was not the answer you were looking for!
mfw i realized that GX, Zexal, and Arc-V all have one thing in common: Happy, expressive protags. Compared to the original DM, where Yami was capable of making about 3 different faces, all of which were some variation of angry eyebrows, and 5d's, where yusei is also pretty deadpan in terms of emoting.
That might be why I personally tend to lean towards those three over
the other two most of the time. Don’t get me wrong, I still love all
of the Yu-Gi-Oh series on pretty much an equal level, but I always
tend towards expressive characters, characters that wear their hearts
on their sleeves, or else the kinds of characters that hide their
insecurities behind those bright and cheerful emotions, which
basically describes Judai, Yuma, and Yuya.
Although, Yami no Yugi’s got some pretty nice derpy, dorky faces
Omg I'm sorry my keyboard is acting up I meant the most sad moments in the yugioh series sorry my bad :(
ooooh okay! That makes sense, sorry I wasn’t able to figure it out,
and thanks for sending a correction!
In DM, it’s a tossup for me between the scene where Yami no Yugi
duels Orichalchos!Yugi and the moment when Atem passes on to the
afterlife. I know a lot of people would be like “what?? Atem
dying is definitely the saddest moment!” but honestly in my case,
while it was super sad the first time I watched it, the times I saw
the scene afterward I found it to be a very peaceful scene that gave
me an overwhelming sense of closure. So while it’s still sad, Atem
passing peacefully to the afterlife back to his friends and family is
a more bittersweet moment…while Yami no Yugi being forced to duel
his best friend and partner in a duel to basically the death is still
In GX, I’d have to say the saddest moment is when Judai says goodbye
to Shou just before he goes to finish the duel with Yubel.
Especially if you only watched the dub because after that you might
as well think Judai’s death, and that’s not even a good closure death
like Atem’s. But even outside the dub, Judai telling Shou that he’s
leaving for a little while to grow up while Shou panics over him
disappearing is really a hard one to take. Runners up to that would
be the moment that Fubuki, Asuka, Manjoume, and Tyranno die, but I
felt like those were more anguished and shocking than really sad.
For 5D’s, it’s straight up Carly’s death. No questions about it.
Nothing else even comes close for me. Carly dying in Jack’s arms is
probably the saddest moment in Yu-Gi-Oh EVER for me. I’ve watched it
about three times and I still start sobbing every single time, even
during the time that I was watching with my roommate…and one thing
to know about me is that I don’t generally cry when I’m around other
people. Not because I don’t want to, but because for some reason, I
just don’t. I don’t usually react as strongly to things when I’m
around other people, but that scene was strong enough for me to start
crying while I was watching it with my roommate next to me.
In Zexal, the absolute worst and saddest moment was Astral’s death.
Like, that moment is almost up there with Carly’s for me. Yuma’s
anguished cry just cuts me so badly. That smile that Astral has
before ze disappears, how ze reaches out for Yuma one last time…it
hurts. It hurts a lot. And it just doesn’t feel any better after
that because there’s no quick jump back into the plot to distract us,
we actually have to watch Yuma deal with his grief in a really
wrenching way. A scene that come close to this level of sad for me
is the death of Michael and Chris, and the speech that Michael gives
to Yuma just before they lose and he dies. That hurts a lot too.
Zexal hurts. It hurts so much.
In Arc V….I honestly don’t know that we’ve seen its saddest moments
yet. I’d have to say the saddest moment off the top of my head was
the carding of Mitchie and Teppei. The carding of all the other
characters was distressing too, but they were the first deaths that
we got a prolonged scene for and a breath to really see how
devastated that made other people witnessing it. But I feel like we
have yet to see Arc V’s saddest scenes, scenes on the level of the
ones I talked about above. I have no doubt that we will see it
happen though, and that it will emotionally ruin me. The only
real question is who of the main cast they’re going to kill off
first, and how devastating it’s going to be for everyone involved.
(and then, how long we’ll have to wait for everyone to be fucking
The evil/dark sides of the YGO!protags meet up. What happens?
Orichalcos Yami is probably just
sitting in a corner hugging his knees and mumbling to himself because
he’s always upset, while Orichalcos Yugi just constantly pokes fun at
him because Orichalcos Yugi is a little shit. Wicked Avatar Yugi is
probably there too, standing in a corner and glaring silently at
everyone, plotting all of their demises but he can’t talk so there’s
Haou doesn’t talk much either, so
he’s standing in the same corner with Wicked Avatar Yugi and both of
them just kind of share evil auras while they both internally plot to
kill everyone in the room. *evil fist bump*
Does Yusei have a dark version?????
Like in the manga sorta but not really? And definitely not in the
anime unless we’re going with my personal internal retcon of Z-ONE
being Yusei. If that’s the case then Z-ONE is floating around in his
mechanical stuff mumbling over and over about fixing the future and
probably bumping into things, sometimes that thing is Orichalcos Yami
who just groans and covers his head with his hands again.
And then we have Dark Zexal
grinning maniacally and Berserk Yuya just glaring at things with his
pendulum glowing and this is not very exciting is it? Pfft, I just
can’t imagine any of them really knowing what to do with the
situation, they’d all just sit there and kind of silently scope each
other out and wonder if they could handle the others.
But let’s be honest Haou would win
if they all fought. Dark Zexal maybe a close second, but Haou would
Here's a question which were the most was moments in all of the yugioh series from DM To Arc v
The most…what moments? Do you mean
my favorites, or something else?
I mean, I guess I’ll just interpret it
that way…sorry if you meant something else!
In DM, my fave moment off the top of my
head is when Jonouchi blurts out “I DESERVE TO BE WITH MAI TOO”
in the otherwise pointless and stupid ninja actor episode.
In GX, it’s that moment where Darkness
steals Yubel and forces her to attack, but Judai uses a card to shift
it to a direct attack and since Yubel has zero attack, it does
nothing. So he just catches her fist in his palm and he’s like “I’ll
definitely get you back” and she’s like “YOU DAMN WELL BETTER”
For 5D’s it’s the whole scene where
Jack and Carly are on a date, particularly the scene on the balcony
where she encourages him to find his own path. It’s closely tied
with the horrendously sad moment during Jack v. Carly where we see
normal Carly in like a dream like world going “let me draw your
fortune one more time, Jack,” and she draws a card with a picture
of him holding up all these laughing kids, as a King again.
In Zexal it was probably the moment
after Yuma and Shark’s duel in the WDC where Shark’s like “I could
always hear your voice” or Yuma and Astral’s reunion after the duel
And in Arc V so far my fave moment is
any time that Reiji and Yuya look at each other the final duel
between Jack and Yuya where Jack starts laughing and tells Yuya to
give him everything he’s got, and then everyone says the attack
together and it’s great.
It’s coming out day and now seems like
as good a time as ever to dump my gender headcanons for Yu-Gi-Oh
characters here. I’d do sexuality too except then i’d just be
listing every single character since almost all of them are gay, bi,
pan, ace, or something other than straight in my headcanon.
