* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Sartorius makes ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' history by ordering a {{Brainwashed}} minion to activate his KillSat and destroy the world ''before'' defeating the protagonist in their duel! In fact, he wasn't going to bother dueling Jaden in the first place, because he managed to trick him into giving up the MacGuffin. He only did duel Jaden because he absolutely had to, and began said KillSat firing the moment Neos was out of the way.



* HostageForMcGuffin: Sartorius holds Aster hostage, threatening to kill him if Jaden doesn't hand over the KillSat keys. Jaden, in what's probably his most GenreBlind and {{idiot|Hero}}ic [[TooDumbToLive moment]] ever hands them over, then challenges Sartorius to a duel. Which the GenreSavvy villain declines, until outside forces (Neos) force him to duel.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Aster, you're the AntiHero in a {{shonen}} GamingAndSportsAnimeAndManga -- not Franchise/{{Batman}}!
** In the dub, Bastion thinks to himself that Crowler is [[SchmuckBait obviously trying to trap]] Jaden, and only a "[[LeeroyJenkins cavalier fool]]" would agree to it. He's right that it's a trap... but Jaden wins anyway.

* DenserAndWackier: It's quick downward spiral into DarkerAndEdgier territory in later seasons aside, the first several episodes of the series can get ''really freaking weird'', especially in comparison to [[Manga/YuGiOh the original series]]. Not only are some of the duelist Jaden duels ''very'' quirky in nature, at one point, he even ends up dueling a ''literal dueling monkey!'' While it ''does'' start to take itself more seriously later on, it can be a ''bit'' hard to press through at points because of it.

** In one episode, Jaden battles Kaibaman, in a duel with apparently high stakes. He loses, and is admonished that it's just a game, and it's not like it's a matter of life or death -- a valuable lesson for kids in RealLife. Except that, throughout the series (as well the other Franchise/YuGiOh animes), dueling really is SeriousBusiness, and the stakes really are very high, including life or death.

* DoubleStandard: All girls who enter duel academy are placed in the luxurious Obelisk Blue no matter how bad of a duellist they are. Whereas a boy who displays poor duelling talent can find himself living in the shed they call the Slifer dorm. It can takes years of hard work for a boy to reach the same level of living standard the girls get automatically on entry.

* Season 3 (Dimension World arc): When things started to get... strange as the show headed down a slow but steady path from lighthearted comedy to Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion levels of disturbing, angst, and creepiness. Jaden becomes close friends with Jesse Andersen when students from Duel Academy branches around the world come to compete in a tournament. When an unknown HiddenAgendaVillain's actions get Jesse TrappedInAnotherWorld, Jaden becomes dangerously obsessed with finding him. His journey eventually leads to: the apparent deaths of all of his friends, his discovery of his SuperpoweredEvilSide and the past life of his {{Reincarnation}}, and meeting his StalkerWithACrush Yubel, a horrifying card he had as a child that harmed anyone who defeated him, prompting him to launch her into space. Now she's back and she's not too happy about that...

** The "Super Polymerization" card is this in the 3rd season. It first appeared as blank card being used by Brron with hopes of summoning it by using all of Jaden's friends as sacrifices. Although only 4 of them fall victim to it. Jaden acquires it after defeating Brron, [[SplitPersonalityTakeover with the Supreme King taking control of him]] and completing it, who would go on defeating countless duelists [[KickTheDog including Jim and Axel who also fell victim to it.]] Jaden, [[HeroicBSOD after much turmoil]], is able to use this card to purify Rainbow Dragon and [[DemonicPossession free Jesse from Yubel's control]], [[BatmanGambit but lost this card to Yubel who intended to steal it at that moment.]] In their final duel, [[OmnicidalManiac Yubel attempted to fuse all 12 dimensions to destroy reality]], but [[FusionDance Jaden was able to thwart her strategy and instead fuse himself and Yubel to end the conflict.]]

* AwesomeButImpractical: Quite a lot of the duel disks in the third season, including The Supreme King's (which spins like a buzzsaw), Jesse's (which appears to be ... made of giant razorblades), and Yubel's (which is actually an extension of her arm). The question many a cosplayer has moaned over is: How do you actually ''build and use'' any of these?

** [[EldritchAbomination The Light of Destruction]] a malevolent celestial entity. Scientific evidence suggests for billions of years a white hole released a mysterious energy and when it reached Earth it caused several calamities such as dictatorships and wars. Season 2 largely revolves around [[DemonicPossession Sartorius being possessed by the Light]], and later attempting to use a KillSat to wipe out humanity. In season 3, Yubel was also AzCrazy because she came into contact with the Light. By series end, the Light remains active in the universe. Although a flashback reveals that [[TheChosenOne Jaden is the reincarnation of the Supreme King]] who holds the power of the [[TheSacredDarkness Gentle Darkness]] to extinguish the Light.

* DefiedTrope: When Jaden faces down Yubel, he admits that there's no point giving Yubel what we call a KirkSummation. (For the record, Kirk Summations practically never work even when they are given...). Yubel is also surprised she can't get a reaction from Jaden as she continues to taunt him.

* {{Engrish}}: Jim. Oh god, Jim. All over the place. Yubel's VA does a great job correctly pronouncing her German card names. It's a shame the [[GratuitousGerman German itself is completely ungrammatical]].
* EvenTheGuysWantHim Jaden, though it's not surprising considering the show only has two female characters that even begin to qualify as "main characters."

** In Johan and Judai's first duel, when the topic of Johan's ace card Rainbow Dragon comes up, Judai playfully says, "Come one! If you've got ''that'', then show it to me!" Johan's response is to giggle and say, "I can't do that. I mean, Rainbow Dragon is really, ''really'' special!" [[HomoeroticSubtext Yeah.]]



* HideYourGays: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in the third season, where two separate people (three, if you count Syrus ranting about Jesse in the previews) assume Jaden may have an interest in guys, to the point where Yubel possesses Jesse in an attempt to make Jaden surrender to her. The actual 'ship that's most hinted never happens (that we know of--see GettingCrapPastTheRadar above), but Jaden ends up with someone who's half-male anyway. There really isn't any smoke without fire in this case.

* KarmaHoudini: After spending a season manipulating, torturing, possessing, and killing people (and turning the guy she loves completely batshit insane), Yubel...gets the guy for all eternity. Which was what she was after the entire time, since all she really wanted was for him to honour his promise to love only her for all time. Sure, we don't know why she went so wacko in between their lives (she was sane in their first life, after all) but she was not entirely in control of what she did. Though his crimes don't even begin to compare to Yubel, Franz from season 2 episode 33 counts. He stole a copy of the Winged Dragon of Ra and hospitalized three people and Pegasus still let him keep his job.

* ParentalAbandonment: Chumley's father is the only one we ever see or hear mentioned in the series; the other closest thing to a parental unit the main cast has is Chazz's much older (and politically and industrially successful) brothers. In fact, it was Jaden's ParentalAbandonment that gave rise to the seeds of his obsession with dueling. That led to Yubel being overprotective of him whenever he lost and then he sent her into space in a hopeful attempt to get her the powers of the Gentle Darkness.

** Yubel's name may be a Japanese pronunciation of the German "juwel" (pronounced "you-vell," with b/v pronounced the same in Japanese), meaning "jewel" or "gem". By itself it's nothing, but it's pretty funny when you consider that she considers the owner of the Gem Beast deck to be her greatest romantic competition.

** Yubel's name is not Japanese in origin, and because her name is only ever spelled onscreen in katakana, the question isn't the spelling of her name so much as ''the name itself.'' "Yubel" could be the Japanese pronunciation of the German "juwel" (pronounced "you-vel"), meaning "jewel" or "gem," or a correct pronunciation of the Swedish "jubel," meaning "joyful." Nobody actually knows.

* BiTheWay: In the original, various characters assume Jaden has something going with Jesse (and Axel also wonders about Jaden and Jim), and the hints are spread pretty thickly on the ground. Meanwhile, Jaden's "girlfriend" turns out to be a hermaphroditic duel monster, and before she turns up, he does spend some time blushing while in close proximity with a (fully female) Duel Monster.
