* FunWithAcronyms: The antagonists of Sacred Lands, the Powerful Loyal Order of Princes



* 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.



* LittlestCancerPatient: Parodied ([[GagDub like everything else]]); Benny uses this as an excuse to trick Shobu into forfeiting.

* AllCGICartoon: Beginning with Zero, the series exclusively used cgi animation until Versus.



* AnimatedActors: Appears in a gag dub, particularly in a notable scene where Shobu asks Mimi and Boy George if they'll make any more appearances that season.



* {{Brainwashed}}: Mimi during her first duel. Then several other characters such as Yumama, and [[spoiler:later Hakuou throughout the subsequent series.]]



* LuckyTranslation: The English dub had Benny claim that Mimi was his little sister, completely unaware that they would actually show his sister (possibly unrelated in the original) in a (fake) flashback. As chance would have it, Benny's sister looked exactly like a young Mimi. WordOfGod from a post on the Toon Zone Forums.
