* {{Reincarnation}}: Gets rather complicated. [[spoiler: It is ''heavily'' implied that Yugi is the other half of Atem that ''didn't'' get sealed into the puzzle and just sort of floated around until it was born again. Common EpilepticTrees is that [[NiceGuy Ryou]] is something similar in regards to the ancient BigBad Thief King Bakura (who more complicatedly never did a bad deed until being controlled by Zorc, a completely separate being). Seto (with Set) and Ishizu (with Isis) are straighter examples.]]

* DubInducedPlotHole: In Season 2 Ishizu arrives in Domino City via plane. A Domino museum official welcomes her "to America." This is contradicted in Season 4 when the protagonists actually travel overseas to America to investigate the local {{Filler Villain}}s.
** In the dub, they are are said to be flying to ''California''. It is perfectly reasonable for people living near the East Coast to need to take a plane to California.

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 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.

* AerithAndBob: [=4Kids=] gave new names to only ''some'' of the characters, resulting in completely typical sounding names like Jonouchi for Jonouchi, Tristan for Honda, and Duke for Otogi appearing alongside characters like Yugi, Seto, Mokuba, and Bakura.

** An in-universe fictional example is Exodia, a monster so powerful it takes multiple cards to contain him. The individual pieces are worthless, but a player who reassembles Exodia by getting all five parts in play wins immediately.

* ActingUnnatural: Since he and Anzu/Tea are stowaways on the ship to Duelist Kingdom, and Jonouchi/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.

** Episode 11 has a flashback to Joey's days on the streets. Yhe gang members that attack him look like Hirutani's gang from the manga, and have similar styles of uniforms.

* AccentAdaptation: In the 4Kids dub, Jonouchi was given a Brooklyn accent to represent his plain speech patterns in the original. Ryou Bakura was given a British accent to reflect his politeness.

** The Dungeon Dice Monsters arc was turned into ''three'' unrelated stories, though not adding to the original depiction in any meaningful way. In the manga, a big chunk of Otogi's motivation came from his dad (the actual BigBad of the arc) 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, the only parts that remotely resemble each other being some parts of his DDM battle with Dark Yugi (which, in the manga, was a battle with the normal Yugi). His dad also did not appear in the anime.
** Serenity's character is slightly expanded, as she gets to duel in the Virtual World using a female monster-deck. Her adoration of Jonouchi and friendship with Mai is given more focus as a result.
** Bakura's Battle City duel with "Ghost" Kotsuzuka, which lasts ''one page'' in the manga, is given its own episode in the anime.
** 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 Anzu and Honda were able to contribute to the final battle.

* HostageForMcGuffin: So much so (especially with Kaiba's little brother Mokuba) that [[http://www.dailymotion.com/littlekuriboh/ LittleKuriboh]]'s GagDub of the show has an entire running gag built around it.

* MythologyGag: Some anime-only arcs reference the manga obliquely, like having Yugi get upset when Earu the virtual fairy died like when his virtual pet in the manga died, and Yami Bakura's soul-eating Morphing Jar card being like Imori's soul-eating Dragon Jar. Noah's arc and character design are a reference to the manga's Death-T arc, as well as Toei's Yu-Gi-Oh anime.
