* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The sudden removal of mysticism, which resulted in Yliaster's origins being inconsistent and {{Brother Chuck}}ed the Psychic Duelists, and the severe reduction of Carly's role were both caused by the discovery of her seiyuu's association with the Roma Sophia cult.



* CopyProtection: Pirated copies of WC 2010 and 2011 has the game start with an anti-piracy warning before the title screen. Continuing past that will result in certain plot-progressing events missing, and the computer never making its move in Duels.



* FinalExamBoss: The final boss of WC 2010 is challenged in a Turbo Duel, Tag Duel, and then a standard Duel. Fortunately, you get opportunities to save between each.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: The set up involving a more dystopian city and criminals trying to get what they can will create a more cynical setting than the last two YuGiOh series, but the tone, spirit, and characters still make this series more on the idealistic end of the scale.

* RousseauWasRight: This is a YuGiOh series after all and they all usually go to this direction. The antagonists in the second half of the show turn out to just be guys wanting to prevent a bad future from happening, even if they are unaware of the consequences of their actions on what they do to the past.

** (4+ 5) Yusei gets his rematch with Jack that he's been aiming towards. They clash, and at the climax of the duel the Crimson Dragon appears, leaving both with signs on their arms and Yusei carted off to prison.

When he tried to duel all of Security and ended up killing one of them, leading to a situation where he believed that Yusei had turned him into the police, Yusei's and Kiryu's friendship got shot to hell.

*** Might be justified, since motorcycle riding and rollerblading both require a lot of balance to do well.

** In the dub episode with FAKE!JACK, before REAL!JACK used his last attack, he says [[Music/{{Eminem}} "It's time for the real Jack Atlas to stand up"]]
*** OlderThanTheyThink. The origin is an old game show To Tell The Truth, which Eminem was referencing.
** Heck, there's even a reference to Mobile Suit Gundam 00. The design of Seven Swords Warrior is very similar to the 00 Raiser's design, except without the main-section of the 0 Raiser (the part where Saji usually sits with the Red Haro). Its name alone is a reference to both Exia and 00 Raiser's upgrades (though the latter only appeared in the manga sidestories): the Seven Swords System. Seven Swords Warrior seems, however, to be using a mix between Exia's swords and 00 Raiser's swords, most notably Exia's two extra physical swords and the 00 Raiser's GN Buster Sword II.
*** Speaking of Gundam, Katsumi Ono (the director of 5D's) has said that [[spoiler:Yusei turning gold during the Delta Accel Synchro summon]] came from [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G-Gundam's]] hyper mode.

In-show spellings don't help, seeing as some of them are inconsistent (Bommer/Bomber) and others take real names and make gibberish of them (Luciano's name, in-show, is incorrectly spelled as "Lucciano").

** You can always say Rudger is darker than his brother because Rudger is more of the AdventureArchaeologist and did the field work while Rex is more of a introverted MagnificentBastard NonActionGuy.
*** There's also the fact that human flesh discolours post-mortem as decomposition sets in. Considering Rudger is the first of the new Dark Signers, and he apparently continued to decay after reviving, this could explain it.

Examples include Mimi in 2010 (have a card that cant be destroyed by battle, easily summoned, and have 4000 attack and relatively good Spell/Trap/Monster Line-up) and Minegishi in 2011 (A Chaos DAD deck with good spell Trap Line-up that quality is on par of Tournament level deck)

The player ''must'' sweep through the remaining opposition for their team, even in instances where there is a third member who could pick up their slack should they be defeated.



* NintendoHard: It's often difficult for those who aren't well versed in the game or without cheating devices, to get off the ground as the starting decks are crap and you must progress in the game a fair bit in order to unlock the packs with decent cards. It is not uncommon for the player in WC 2009 to find themselves using only the three Synchros they begin the game with until the end- or post-game.
** 2010 and 2011 got better in that regards, in that you start the game with packs containing some useful synchros, and you can get a structure deck after the first few duels.
