* InvincibleHero: Completely subverted. The best way to maintain a high win ratio in Vanguard is to ''not fight''. Averted for Aichi, who has only won ''slightly'' over half his fights (even less if you count the training camp's half-offscreen half-on matches). Justified in that he's still a newbie at the game. Played irritatingly straight with [[CurbStompBattle Kai]] due to his unbelievable luck at pulling Triggers, his only onscreen losses being to Aichi in Episode 2 (and it's implied he deliberately wasn't playing at full strength, since that was a training match) [[spoiler: and Ren in episode 58, and Leon at the end of season 2]].
** [[InvincibleHero Invincible Rival]]: Kai. This is partly the reason for his BaseBreaker status, that currently only Aichi, Ren and Leon have beaten him. This sounds fine until you note two things. A) His characterization. And B) Who he happens to beat, including the winner of the shop tournament for the previous year. While commenting exactly the same as he does when beating [[CripplingOverspecialization Morikawa]].
*** Legion Mate only proves the first point even further. Kai's win ratio takes a huge blow after being promoted to main character, losing against Kamui and Kourin (who he had beaten in previous seasons), as well as newcomer Gaillard. Even his victory against Ren is because Ren himself allowed it, as he could've easily won if he wanted to. [[spoiler:That said, once he obtains Kagero, he's back to winning every fight, even against Aichi.]]

* BlackKnight: The Shadow Paladins. Particularly Blaster Dark, given the second opening plays up the contrast between it and [[WhiteKnight Blaster Blade]].

The franchise was popular enough to warrant its own video game. In April 2013, the first game Ride to Victory came out in the Nintendo 3DS handheld, produced by the FuRyu Company. The game follows the player character (Chosen from 6 available) in his/her way to become the National Champion. A year later, in June 2014, a sequel game, Lock On Victory, followed suit, produced by the same company. It follows closely to the plot of Link Joker Arc where the player character (Chosen from the same 6 characters from the previous game + 5 new characters in this game, one of them voiced by NobuyukiHiyama, no less!) gets to choose which of the 3 high schools (Aichi's Miyaji, Kai's Hitsue or Ren's Fukuhara) to join and win the Vanguard High School Championship while fighting the invasion of Link Joker. However, both games are subjected to NoExportForYou and region "Lock"ing by a Link Joker controlled Nintendo doesn't help the matter.

** In a more subtle example, in over 200 episodes altogether between the original series and ''G'', the only fighter to ever be unable to ride due to lacking a card of the right grade in their hand is Morikawa (whose unbalanced deck makes it far more likely he won't have a grade 1 or 2).

A second series, ''Cardfight!! Vanguard G'', began airing in Autumn 2014. Taking place after a three-year TimeSkip, it focuses upon a brand new set of characters: [[PowerTrio Chrono Shindou, Shion Kiba and Tokoha Anjou]], who all wield new "G Units" with the "Stride" ability. A second season, ''GIRS Crisis'', began airing in October 2015 and focuses on a new mega-quest hosted by the Friendly Vanguard Association which will see Team [=TRY3=] travelling to all the different branches of the organisation to win the title of Generation Master.

A flash anime for the Mini Vanguard series, a 4-panel comic strip will be produced too. There are also two manga series published by Kadokawa Shoten in different magazines: one in Comp Ace and another in [[KeroroGunsou Kerokero]] Ace. However, ever since the discontinuation of Kerkero Ace, the manga was moved to Bushiroad's own monthly magazine, the Monthly Bushiroad. It also has a {{Prequel}} in the form of ''0 Start Set'', which depicts Kai's childhood and playing Royal Paladins before meeting Aichi. Another manga series was also serialized in the Monthly Bushiroad, titled Cardfight!! Vanguard Gaiden: Swordsman of Light, which follows the story of the units and their battle on the Planet Cray.

** Also in Episode 3, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game poster actually featured official artwork for ''[[VisualNovel/{{AIR}} AIR]]'' for some reason, even though AIR isn't geared toward the same audience and doesn't have its own card game.

** The Etranger clan appears to consist entirely of characters from other sources, starting with Blaster [[KeroroGunsou Keroro]]: [[http://i39.tinypic.com/fveovt.png Keroro cosplaying as Blaster Blade]]. "Etranger" literally translates as "foreigner".

* FandomNod: Bushiroad's April Fools joke for 2013 was announcing a Vanguard MMO called Chronicles of Cray, with one of the starting Clans for the game being Sky Paladin. Sky Paladins were a fan-made Clan created by a user on the Vanguard wiki.
