* AdaptedOut: In the manga, the soul of Akhenaden, merged with that of Zorc, was sealed inside the Millennium Puzzle and released during the Memory World game, inhabiting his mummified corpse outside of the game, and [[BigBadDuumvirate works with Dark Bakura]]. This is removed entirely in the manga, with any actions taken by Akhenaden's spirit given to Dark Bakura instead.

* FutureMeScaresMe: The High Priest of Darkness appears to the "normal" Akhenaden in the manga at a time before his FaceHeelTurn, who naturally freaks out. But since he's just a non-player character in the Shadow RPG, [[YouCantFightFate he doesn't do anything differently]].



* CanonImmigrant: He was in a number of ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' video games before he was introduced in the manga.

This is also true of Priests Seto and Isis, but Simon can be dueled against in ''every'' game from ''Forbidden Memories'' to ''7 Trials to Glory'', [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness even the ones set in the present day, giving him no known connection to Sugoroku.]]

* TheCorruption: To Thief King Bakura, Akhenaden, and anything that has a piece of his soul in it, as he will eventually consume and replace them. Dark Bakura began as Thief King Bakura, but ended as Zorc.

to:

* TheCorruption: To Thief King Anything part of Zorc ''becomes'' Zorc to some extent, with his influence most strongly felt in the Ring, Bakura, Akhenaden, and anything that has a piece of his soul in it, as he will eventually consume and replace them. Dark Bakura began as Thief King Bakura, but ended as Zorc.Akhenaden.



* GodOfEvil: In the original material, he's an EldritchAbomination who claims to have come into existence eons before he was summoned with the power of the Millennium Items. In the dub, he's the "Ruler of the [[NeverSayDie Shadow Realm]]", essentially {{Satan}}. Kazuki Takahashi even depicts Zorc on "the Devil" tarot card.
* GreaterScopeVillain: He is this for the series. He is the entity that the Pharaoh destroyed that Dark Bakura is trying to resurrect, and Pegasus indirectly mentions him as an "evil intelligence" inside the Millennium Items. Also, for most of the English 4Kids dub, he is frequently but vaguely referred to only as a dark evil defeated by the Pharaoh in Ancient Egypt who destroyed that country and which the Pharaoh is prophesied to defeat again. However, it is not until the end of the last arc that we find out who and what he is, and its revealed/confirmed that Dark Bakura was working to release him all along.

** In addition, there's a bit of Zorc's influence in several of the Millennium Items. Pegasus reveals this earlier on when he told Yugi that the Millennium Items contain an "evil intelligence", while Ishizu later clarifies that only some of them (the Eye, the Rod, the Ring and the Puzzle) contain his darkness and others (the Necklace, Scales and Key) do not.

* ArtifactOfDoom: The Millennium Items were used to summon him, and the Millennium Ring in particular is made inherently evil due to the presence of Dark Bakura, who is technically (a piece of) Zorc.

* CardCarryingVillain: You thought "Dark Master" Zorc sounded villainous? Try '''The Great Evil God'''
* TheCorruption: To Thief King Bakura and Akhenaden. Anything that has a piece of his soul in it, as he will eventually consume and replace them. The spirit of the Millennium Ring "Dark Bakura" began as that of Thief King Bakura, but ended as Zorc.
* ChekhovsGunman: His first appearance was as a generic FinalBoss in a tabletop RPG made by Bakura, and then it's a long time before we see the him again as yet another final boss of the final tabletop RPG, only as a much deadlier character.... the ''real'' Zorc (or, at least, what the RPG is actually simulating).
* DarkIsEvil: Red eyes, a dragon pe...I mean extra head and black wings, typical of an ancient demon.
* DragonInChief: In the manga, the Shadow RPG version of Zorc is a player character controlled by Dark Bakura, but only so that the soul of the ''real'' Zorc whom Dark Bakura serves (presently merged with Akhenaden and inhabiting his corpse) can be resurrected in the modern world.
** Subverted in the anime, in which the in-game Zorc appears to actually ''be'' the real one whom Dark Bakura takes orders from and later on flat-out merges with.
* DishingOutDirt: Zorc's third Hourglass ability is ''Natural Catastrophe'', which causes the land to slowly sink around the game board. Dark Bakura activates this ability to destroy the Valley of the Kings first, in an attempt to kill Dark Yugi's friends.
* EldritchAbomination: He has a ''dragon on his crotch'' for crying out loud! (Granted, it was revised in the ''bunkoban'' editions of the manga, but you really can't get over that...)

* EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce: Inverted. To win, Dark Bakura/Zorc actually recreates the events of Zorc's original attack in an elaborate Role-Playing Shadow Game, trying to rewrite history so that he never lost in the first place.
** As far as the manga goes, Dark Bakura winning the Shadow Game will unleash Zorc Necrophades onto the modern world in place of Dark Yugi rather than rewrite history...
* FinalBoss: Of the Millennium World arc - he's the final enemy that Dark Yugi and his party characters (Pharaoh Atem, Mana, and his Priests) have to defeat in the Shadow RPG. Or else Zorc is unleashed onto the modern world via the Millennium Puzzle.

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Zorc is a big evil god that wants to destroy everything because he can, and that's about all there is to his characterization.



* TheHeartless: Zorc was created by the collective hatred in the hearts of humankind, and physically unleashed into the world when a village was sacrificed to create the Millennium Items.
** The dub upgrades him to {{Satan}} or the closest equivalent of the "Shadow Realm".

* TheJuggernaut: The heroes throw everything they have on him, the Dark Magician duo, Exodia, the Blue-Eyes White Dragon and even the ''Egyptian Gods'' all fail to even scratch him. The only way Atem beats him is by summoning Horakty, who destroys him once and for all.
* KilledOffForReal: Horakty destroys Zorc in the final battle, and since the spirits of Thief King Bakura and Akhenaden contained the fragments of his soul needed to resurrect him, his death is permanent.
* LargeAndInCharge: Undeniably the biggest villain, if one does not count the Leviathan from the anime's Doma filler arc.
* TheManBehindTheMan: More of a passive variation. The character of Dark Master Zorc is influenced by the Game Master, Dark Bakura, who is the soul of Thief King Bakura influenced by the essence of Zorc Necrophades. Yeah...
* MassOhCrap: Exodia the Sealed One - ''demon god of the king's palace'' and the most well-known InstantWinCondition in the modern Duel Monsters game - is summoned by Priest Siamun as a Ka to combat Zorc. After Exodia manages to one-shot Zorc's entire army of undead with Exodo Flame and proceeds to fire at Zorc, Zorc [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bifurcates him]]. Cue this reaction.

* PlayerCharacter[=/=]{{GMPC}}: Dark Master Zorc was Dark Bakura's main avatar for the Monster World RPG. Likewise, during the Shadow RPG, the real Zorc Necrophades became one of Dark Bakura's main avatars once Thief King Bakura died and Zorc was summoned by Akhenaden.
* PlayingWithFire: ''[[CallingYourAttacks Zorc Inferno!]]'' Same attack he had in Bakura's Monster World, only much ''bigger'' here.

* TimeStandsStill: Zorc's second Hourglass ability stops time for the natural denizens of the Shadow RPG (naturally, the Dark Yugi-possessed Atem piece and his friends are exempt). This allows the Zorc-influenced Akhenaden to steal the Millennium Items and summon Zorc.
* UltimateEvil: Or in this case, "the door of darkness/ultimate dark power" that Bakura keeps going on about, of the entire original ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' manga storyline until the Millennium Word arc when he is finally revealed.

* TheStoic: In contrast to Dark Yugi. In the manga, we can see that he never smiles the trademark cocky smile of Dark Yugi when he confronts his enemy. Most of the time, he is rather serious - being a king at the young age helps.

* SummonMagic: In a similar vein to ''[[ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'', all controllable characters of the Shadow RPG are able to summon monsters that come from a person's soul and battle with them. Kisara's main Ka is the Black Magician Girl. Unlike the other characters, she channels her Ka using her own self, and is directly linked with it.

Added DiffLines:

* UndyingLoyalty: Less noticeable than Mahado/Mahad's behaviour, but he is loyal to Atem. He refers to himself as 'the Pharaoh's true friend' on the Tablet of Memories, and he was likely the one to set up the Tombkeepers to protect the secret to Atem regaining his memories in case he ever returned.

to:

* WiseBeyondTheirYears: As ever, lets Seto know that sacrificing allies is a destructive, cruel strategy in the long run. Generally acts much older than his age (though we do see him rising to the challenge when provoked by Seto).
