Following the original ''Franchise/DuelMasters'' manga, which used cards from ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' instead of the ''Duel Masters'' cards (which were created for this series, thus explaining the similarities), the anime is what helped the Duel Masters franchise to hit the main stream.

As explained on Duel Masters main article, the anime is completely different whether you are looking at it from the Japanese version or the North American version. While the former is a serious series about a children card game ([[Franchise/YuGiOh not unlike the series which inspired it]]), the latter is the UrExample of TheAbridgedSeries in all but longevity.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Surprisingly averted for the most part. Other than a moment that mocked Mimi's unexplained [[BreastExpansion breasts]], the gag dub was pretty clean, even going so far as to prevent a potential one with the L in the [[FunWithAcronyms Powerful Loyal Order of Princes]]



* InNameOnly: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lT7nl1jXIdY trailer for the new American show]] seems to reveal that it will have nothing to do with the card game, as there are no cards, and summoning is done with gloves.
