* BreastExpansion: Mimi's breasts get larger from episode to episode in the first season. The American first season actually ''toned this down''. By the way, she's underage. Though the dub did make reference to it in a late first season episode when, as the girls were expressing relief that [[BreakingTheFourthWall a possible cancellation of the series]] had been averted, Mimi commented that she was enjoying her new curves. To a lesser extent, Sayuki also gets noticably bigger as the series progresses.
* CardCarryingVillain: Pardoning the pun, Kokujo is a self proclaimed "Evil Genius".

The story revolves around Shobu Kirifuda, an enthusiast of the titular card game who is exposed for the first time to a higher level of play (referred to in the North American release as Kaijudo, literally "the way of monsters"; it wasn't given a name in Japan), in which actual monsters serve the will of their summoners. As his father had mastered the game before him, Shobu [[ToBeAMaster feels a certain need to live up to his family's reputation]].

* {{Defictionalization}}: The card game.
** In Kintaro's introduction episode in the dub, a reference is made to a "www.noveltyflyingcapes.com", which sells, well, novelty flying capes. During the shows run, there was actually a page at that address, featuring a picture of Hakuoh with his cape, and information on where to get the capes--for 50% off, you can tell them Fritz the Bitter Goblin sent you. Unfortunately, the page is long gone. An [[http://web.archive.org/web/20050202062203/http://noveltyflyingcapes.com/ archived version]] still exists, but all that's visible is the aforementioned information.

Kaijudo duelists are referred to as "True Duelists" and Kaijudo battle as "Duel of Truth".[[/note]]

* CrossOver: The Duel Masters movie (''Curse of the Death Phoenix'') saw a release in tandem with the MegaManNTWarrior movie (''The Program of Light and Darkness'') ([[NoExportForYou only in Japan]]). In ''Program'', Netto and company are at an expo, where they catch Shoubu summoning the Bolmeteus Steel Dragon; in ''Curse'' the same crew are in the tournament stadium, cheering him on more directly. While in the movies themselves only contained brief snippets of the other's footage, both Shobu and Netto (as Rockman R) worked together in the opening cinema. Also, MegaManBattleNetwork 5 saw a set of Giga Chips with the powers of the Eternal Phoenix (just named "Phoenix" in game) and the Death Phoenix, whereas [=Forte.EXE=] got a pair of cards in the [[http://duelmasters.wikia.com/wiki/Forte,_Brave_Fear_Lord DM game]]. (Same card, different artwork, technically).
