* GameplayAndStorySegregation: A rare anime and real-life example. Duelist Kingdom uses completely different rules than later arcs, playing more like an RPG than a trading card game, and even afterwards some cards have completely different effects than they do in real life.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Duelist Kingdom uses completely different rules than later arcs, playing more like an RPG than a trading card game. There are too many to list, but examples include Yugi being able to "beach" Mako's sea creatures, being able to target separate ''parts'' of monsters, attacks being able to "miss," etc. The rules of the Duel Monsters TCG weren't really made yet when Duelist Kingdom happened in the manga, which the anime mostly follows. Later seasons bring the rules in closer with the real-life card game.

** A creeping one happens as far back as Episode 2. Joey is motivated to play Duel Monsters to win an upcoming district tournament when he sees the prize is 3,000,000 yen, so he trains under Solomon/Granpa to get better. After that scene it flashes forward an estimated few days to weeks where he ends up losing in the quarter-finals. In the dub all mention of his entrance in the District Tournament disappears. This ends up causing a bit of confusion when Season 3 rolls around and [[spoiler:he ends up comatose after his duel with Marik, where during his time in the coma he relives his memories from the tournament showing how he lost in the quarter-finals to show how much stronger he's become since then, and fighting subconsciously to fulfill his promise and face Yugi again]]. In the dub [[spoiler:he's just straight-up dreaming and is told this by Yugi in the dream, turning it into an EpiphanicPrison of sorts as he fights his way out of the Shadow Realm.]]

** The anime never explains ''why'' Dark Bakura is after Mokuba in Duelist Kingdom (it's for the key to Kaiba Corporation's safe, which Mokuba had). The dub actually makes a little more sense, with him being after Mokuba's soulless body instead, although it creates a plot hole where Dark Bakura wants Mokuba's body over the chosen host of the Shadow RPG.

* AerithAndBob: By-product of dubbing. 4Kids gave new names to only ''some'' of the characters, resulting in completely typical sounding names like Joey, Tristan, and Duke appearing alongside characters like Yugi, Seto, Mokuba, and Bakura.

There are a huge number of video games based on the anime and manga. It also spawned a movie called ''[[Anime/YuGiOhTheMoviePyramidOfLight The Pyramid of Light]]''. This version of Yugi and his alter ego return in the ''Anime/YuGiOhTenthAnniversaryMovie'' that [[BatFamilyCrossover teams him up with Jaden and Yusei.]] ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'' was written to take place six months after the manga continuity in the Japanese version, but takes place a year after the anime in the West and is the first ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' anime adaptation with direct involvement from Kazuki Takahashi.

This adaptation is given the subtitle "Duel Monsters" to demonstrate the elevated prominence of the card game compared with the manga and first series anime (though the manga at the time was also given the subtitle of "Duelist" in the English localization). It was sponsored by Creator/{{Konami}} as a successful attempt to remain dominant of the license to the card game, after it stripped it away from Creator/{{Bandai}}, which failed to retain the license of capitalizing on the manga's card game with Toei's movie and anime.

* ActingUnnatural: Since he and Anzu/Tea are stowaways on the ship to Duelist Kingdom (and Joey isn't really supposed to be there either), Honda/Tristan advises everyone to "act casual" going past the guards... and then marches past looking ridiculously uncomfortable and suspicious.

** Jonouchi/Joey in the anime. When Bandit Keith tries to steal his card during the Duelist Kingdom Arc, Jonouchi beats him up, claiming that while Keith may be good at card games, he's the best at fighting. (Consider that Keith is taller and more muscular than Jonouchi.) In the anime, Jonouchi gets beaten up rather ungracefully instead. He also had more anime-exclusive losses.

** An especially strange case with the Dungeon Dice Monsters arc, which the anime turned into ''three'' unrelated stories. In the manga, a big chunk of Ryuji/Duke's motivation came from his dad being an old rival of Yugi's grandpa, which Rebecca took over in the anime. Meanwhile, the whole "Yugi almost dies in a fire" plotline that concluded the arc got shoved into the Yugi vs. Marik/Bandit Keith duel that kicked off the anime version of Battle City. And last, but not least, the anime did its own version of DDM, which featured a completely different take on Ryuji but was otherwise... ''somewhat'' faithful to the manga story.

** The Memory World arc expanded Seto and Kisara's role, having them meet as children in backstory. Kisara was also made more assertive, Bakura and Mahad's duel was elaborated on, and Tea and Tristan were able to contribute to the final battle.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Beyond the parts that [[SadlyMythtaken never would have been accurate to begin with]] (Obelisk as a God, the costumes, the fact that most of the characters in the Memory World are going around with their own hair), other AnachronismStew mistakes crop up, such as people using what seem to be steel or iron swords during what should have been the ''Bronze'' Age. Doubly the case for the dubbed version, which changes "3000" to "5000": Five thousand years ago--3000 BCE--would have been ''before the pyramids were built,'' and horses weren't introduced to Egypt until around 1700-1550 BCE.

* AttemptedRape: In a flashback, Anzu is lured into a gym hall where a creepy gym teacher with a camera was waiting to blackmail her for going to work at Burger World against school rules. Yugi arrives on time and Dark Yugi emerges to play a "draw the stronger Duel Monster" Shadow Game and gives the pervert a "Mind Crush" Penalty Game. In the dub, the camera (and shots of Anzu's thighs) were edited out, and she's assaulted by a mugger instead.

** Pretty much every character's deck only works because of TheMagicPokerEquation and the fact that the writers can let them get whatever cards they need. For a fun drinking game, watch the show and take a drink any time a duelist's strategy could be utterly ruined with any simple one-for-one destruction card like Mystical Space Typhoon or Smashing Ground -- cards that no one seems to use, not in multiple copies at least.
** Rare cards in-universe are ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin rare cards]]''[[note]]the prints possibly only numbering around the double digits world wide[[/note]], which most of those destruction cards are (e.g., Harpie's Feather Duster).

* CCGImportanceDissonance: Countless examples, the most famous of which being the Dark Magician, Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Red-Eyes Black Dragon.
** Those cards did have importance in the early days of the card game, since effect monsters and monster removal, amongst other meta-defining concepts, were few and far between at the time, thus making the game more about which monsters had the higher stats, with BEWD in particular standing alone at the top.
** Even now, most monsters with 3000 or more ATK have some form of summoning conditions to keep Blue-Eyes White Dragon unique (although these conditions often make such monsters easier to summon).

** If the camera ever pays particular attention to the cards that players put in the graveyard when they have to discard cards for some reason, it's likely (though not guaranteed) that at least one of those will have an effect that works in the graveyard, or that the player will otherwise get to use that card later on.
