** DD himself becomes one shortly afterwards when his ship explodes.



* TheCasanova: Atticus. He even has a little [[strike:black]] blue book. In one of the last episodes of Season 1, Chazz tries to be this. The English version of the episode is even named "Chazz-anova". He subsequently fails at beating Alexis in a duel and thus (through some strange logic that doesn't even apply in most anime) fails to win her heart. Instead, he loses while having all the Spirit Keys in his possession and thus lets the Sacred Beasts/Phantom Demons free.

** The underground promoter who triggered Zane's DespairEventHorizon and FreakOut by duping him into a Duel laced with ElectricTorture, and is implied to have done the same for a number of other people? He gets absolutely no punishment other than Zane declaring that he doesn't need the guy anymore, which doesn't amount to anything.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Jaden gets his share of these having to do with his lack of serious motivation, first from Aster, then Sartorious, then constantly in Season 3 until he goes over the edge.

[[{{Spinoff}} Ten years after]] ''Anime/YuGiOh'', ''Duel Monsters'' has skyrocketed in popularity all around the world, to the point where [[SeriousBusiness dueling is a professional spectator sport of equal importance to politics and the economy]]. Like any other athletes, duelists start training at a young age, and a good place to start is Seto Kaiba's boarding school, Duel Academy, a high school where kids come to learn how to duel with dreams of [[ToBeAMaster becoming the next King of Games]].

''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' is the story of a group of Duel Academy's students thwarting the plans of these new threats while dealing with the dueling school in general. It particularly focuses on Juudai Yuki (Jaden Yuki in the dub), a [[AlmightyJanitor Osiris/Slifer Red student]] [[note]](The school is divided into three dorms named after the [[OlympusMons ancient Egyptian cards]]: the opulent Obelisk Blue, Ra Yellow, and [[DustbinSchool the lowest]], the run-down Osiris Red (Slifer Red in the dub).

The Anime seasons go like this:are as follows:



Season by season, as {{Story Arc}}s pass, the cast grows into LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, as different students graduate or arrive and villains are defeated and replaced. The [[Manga/YuGiOhGX manga]], which came [[AnimeFirst after the anime]], uses the same characters and the same setting but includes none of the arcs covered in the anime. So far, it's not entirely clear whether this will turn out to be [[FanService a good thing]] or not.

The anime has a very [[PostModernism Post Modern-esque]] tone, blending elements of GamingAndSportsAnimeAndManga, MindScrew, and DeconstructorFleet. The absurdity of the SeriousBusiness of Duel Monsters is taken UpToEleven, with entire educational and athletic industries centered around the game, to make you repeatedly say, "You have ''got'' to be kidding me." Meanwhile, the plot has serious, painful, traumatic psychological effects on everyone involved, particularly Jaden, whose psyche collapses under the pressure and power and responsibility he's burdened with. "[[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries I've lost a card game! I have no reason to live!]]" suddenly isn't funny anymore, particularly for the Truesdale brothers. In short, it's a very self-aware GenreBusting series that plays some tropes absurdly straight and others painfully realistically.

The things that fans love about the show tend to be the same things critics hate about it, from the lack of anything in common with the original series (aside from the card game) to the utter lack of CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds. Many fans also feel the existence of Shadow Games [[RetCon Ret Cons]] the end of the first series and the destruction of the Millennium Items. The dub was, predictably, as badly {{Macekre}}d as the original, with severe [[NeverSayDie awkwardly censored references to death]]. There's also a strangely sharp similarity in the LampshadeHanging and [[NoFourthWall fourth wall breakage]] of some episodes in the dub's third season to that of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''.
