** Aster: A ''third'' expy of Kaiba, in his Rival status and generally feeling he's superior. The fact that all three characters go through some form of BreakTheHaughty cannot be a coincidence.

* CombatCommentator: It's ''Yu-Gi-Oh'', so ''someone'' has to be there on the sidelines to make sure the audience didn't miss anything. In some Season 4 duels where there's nobody left alive to commentate, the duelist currently representing the protagonist side of the fight will serve as his own commentator.
* CombiningMecha: VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon.

* JustJokingJustification: for the GenreSavvy, Jesse's fake summoning of Rainbow Dragon in Episode 106 is funny; for the cast, his seeming mockery of something that is SeriousBusiness is enough to cause shouting, anger, and general uproar. Jesse even lampshades it by giving a large grin and announcing that he's "just kidding".

* DeusExMachina: In true ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' fashion, you get duels being settled by the MagicPokerEquation when the hero, who's on the back foot, turns things around with a single miracle draw. Philosopher's Stone - Sabatiel might be fhe most obvious, as it's only around to help Jaden get past the Sacred Beasts and then disappears.
