Has the distinction of being literally the last SaturdayMorningCartoon ever broadcast before the Creator/{{Vortexx}} block ceased airing on September 27, 2014. For now, anyway. Also holds the honor of being the second Yu-Gi-Oh series to completely finish its English dub (''GX'' only stopped at the end of its third season and ''[=5Ds=]'' stopped midway though its last season and given a hastily edited GeckoEnding).

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The gate Yuma opened at the end of the first episode releases all of the numbers, most of whom take people over and make them evil, with the exception of the one Yuma gets which is "Hope, King of Hope." Releasing various evils? And Hope being released with them? Now doesn't this sound familiar to the story of Pandora's Box?

* InformedAttribute: We are TOLD that Kaito does not enjoy dueling for people's souls, but we are SHOWN that he has a constant SlasherSmile on his face and seems to go about ripping out souls with a similar glee that a small child would have ripping off the wrapping from Christmas presents. He later shows a lot of remorse and becomes TheAtoner, but is convinced that nothing he does will prevent his own "guilty soul" was going to hell.

* {{Expy}}: Yuma looks like a cross between Jaden of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' and a ''{{Beyblade}}'' hero.
** As soon as ''5Ds'' fans got a glimpse of Yuma, they declared that he was ''[[OfficialCouple Yusei and Akiza's lovechild]].''
** There has been reports of the screen thing on Yuma's wrist having extreme similarities with something from ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}''.
*** Zexal II shares similar plot points to Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders: two warring, alien factions that involve humans in their war, the antagonists (Barians and Gundalians) both use human disguises to blend in on Earth, and both have a member "befriend" the main protagonist, only for said member to betray the team. It helps that both those characters - Rei Shingetsu and Ren Krawler - have a purple theme and share similar skin and hair colors (both in their true forms).
** Astral looks like Neo-Spacian Twinkle Moss from ''Yu-Gi-Oh! GX'', with a relationship to the protagonist not unlike Yubel.
** Yuma's relationship with Astral seems to be intentionally designed to draw parallels to that of Yugi and Dark Yugi from ''Yu-Gi-Oh''.
*** And it's not just his relationship with Astral, either. He's a boy with an artifact and a legacy deck, who lives with a grandparent and shares a close bond with a female childhood friend.

** Nelson Andrews has a similar concept to Tomoya Hanasaki from Season Zero. Both are hero impersonators who have different characters when they change into their hero persona, and both have problems with the way their parent try to fix this.



** Similarly, Vetrix: The second major antagonist, an eccentric rich boy with a taste for cartoons and something on his left eye? Oh my.
** Gagaga Magician and Gagaga Girl, anybody who's watched the [[Anime/YuGiOh original]] series knows about this one.
** Quattro looks [[http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/7207/ivgingabishonen.jpg oddly like]] the Galactic Pretty Boy of ''Anime/StarDriver''.
** Hell, the World Duel Carnival could be considered an Expy of Duelist Kingdom. 5 wins to get to the finals? The man setting it up is after series [=MacGuffins=]? Check and check.
** After initially being positioned as the Kaiba of this series as the protagonist's first major opponent, Shark is now shaping up to be the JOEY (street punk attitude before befriending the hero, bedridden little sister).
** [[spoiler:Chaos Number 107 bears much more resemblance to Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon than their previous counterparts did to each other.]]

** In their first duel with each other, Shark's play style is basically summoning a strong monster as quickly as possible, Yuma wins by increasing Utopia's attack points up to 5000. Shark got [[GenreSavvy a lot smarter]] by their next duel.

* GenreSavvy: Kaito knows his opponents will use Xyz Monsters, so his ace card is a tribute monster that counters Xyzes. That card's evolved forms are Xyzes themselves, though they are still designed to screw over the opponent's.
