* {{Badass}}: He's one of two people in the entire series to have beaten Yusei (the other being Jack in their backstory). He's even more so in the manga, seeing as he has ''Red Demon's Dragon''.
** BadassBiker: As a Dark Signer.
** BadassLongcoat: He wears one of these during the Crash Town arc.

* {{Badass}}: Andore alone is this, as he managed to defeat Jack and Aki ''just by himself'' and then went on to half Yusei's Life Points (in order words, he took out ''10000 Life Points'' on his lonesome). He only loses to Yusei because he activated a Trap Card that inflicted 2000 damage to both players. It should be noted that his first duel with Yusei got interrupted, and while it looked like Yusei would have won, Yusei was sure that Andore's face-down card would have countered him.



* {{Badass}}: He's a very skilled duelist, with a powerful One-Turn Kill strategy. It requires both Kiryu and Yusei to defeat him.
** BadassBaritone: His voice is not only low, it sounds more impressive than any of the other guys from Crash Town.

* CircusBrat: As a child, he was part of a third rate circus, until he - being the oldest son - realized he needed a better salary to pay the bills. (Seeing as his whole family pretty much lived on cup ramen, it implies business was even worse than he suggested.)

* HeroicSacrifice: During Yusei's first battle with Rudger, when things begin to go pear-shaped for the Dark Signer, he switches places with Rally. Rather than let Yusei be killed, Rally takes out Uru and his own life points to ensure that Yusei can continue.

He uses a psychiatry-themed deck.



* AllPsychologyIsFreudian: Professor Frank is a psychologist and a hypnotist, whose cards (most notably Id the Superdemonic Lord, a.k.a. Ido the Supreme Magical Force) are a ShoutOut to Freudian psychology (specifically, psychoanalysis) especially easy seeing as he's dueling Ruka, and his calm demeanor quickly leaves him talking like a lunatic when they both enter the SpiritWorld. On top of that his ace monster (the aforementioned Id) is in itself an extra ShoutOut to the monster of the same name from ''Film/ForbiddenPlanet''.

It is later revealed that he was a former developer in M.I.D.S. and an assistant to Yusei's father along with his older brother, Rudger.

He is also the Legendary D-Wheeler from the legend of the Daedalus Bridge, having flown from Satellite to Neo Domino and losing his left arm in the process.

He plays an Inca-themed deck based around using the effects of Sun Dragon Inti and Moon Dragon Quilla to maintain field presence. His Earthbound Immortal is Wiraqocha Rasca, the condor.



* CainAndAbel: An interesting variant of this trope. Despite being the younger brother, Rex is the Cain to Rudger's Abel, but not in a classic sense. Rex loves his older brother, but to end the circle of battle between the Signers and Dark Signers he tries to get the same powers Rudger once possessed. He already has Rudger's arm with the Dragon Head, then Rex lets himself get killed by his brother so that he will be revived as a Dark Signer.

Later, he flew the Signers, Mikage, and Rua to Satellite on Godwin's orders. While at Martha's place he began to respect Satellite residents more after learning how one of the children, Takuya, admired Security for trying to save his father and wanted to become one someday (despite the fact that Satellite residents couldn't join Security). After Yusei's initial duel with Rudger, he became one of Yusei's allies and has accompanied his group during the fight against the Dark Signers. He has worked with Mikage on several occasions and has developed a crush on her, though he is aware of her feelings for Jack.

She uses destiny-themed decks, which she uses to tell her fortune as well as to duel. She starts off using an (anime-only) Fortune Fairy deck, which is focused on swarming and powering up weak Normal fairies. After being reborn as a Dark Signer, this evolves into a (real-life) Fortune Lady deck, comprising monsters that become more powerful as time passes plus spell and trap cards with stall effects.

He's in a deal with Godwin to expose the Signers in the tournament in return for financial aid for his village. However, before his duel with Yusei, Bommer learns that his village has been destroyed, apparently by one of Godwin's experiments to summon the Crimson Dragon. This leads to him attacking Godwin after he is defeated, only to be stopped by Yusei. Afterwards, he is arrested by Security. During the attack on the Arcadia Movement, he is freed from custody by Demak, who invites him to join the Dark Signers to get revenge on Yliaster for his village's destruction. Later, when Demak is defeated, Rudger hangs Bommer over Old Momentum in order to make him a replacement Dark Signer, giving him the Killer Whale Birthmark and a second chance at revenge.

Team 5D's fourth opponent. They were shown to be very important when they were immune to Yliaster's changes to history, due to having a new set of God Cards (the Tripolar gods, all 3 based on Norse mythology). They're notable for being the very first Divine Type Monsters since the 3 Egyptian god cards from the [[Anime/YuGiOh very first series]], as well as the first Divine type of Synchro monsters.

All three use Nordic decks built around summoning Aesir. Dragan uses Nordic Beasts and swarming effects to summon Thor, Brave uses Nordic Alfars to dummon Loki supported by a large number of Trap cards, and Harald uses Nordic Ascendants to summon Odin coupled with a large number of burn effects.



* ComplexityAddiction: Harald seems to have one of these, and it cost him his duel with Yusei. Already having gotten rid of Savior Star Dragon and having a massive field advantage with his team's three Polar Gods, Harald keeps playing cards that he thinks will completely ensure his victory over Yusei rather than just using the Gods and their powerful effects to just crush Yusei underfoot. Yusei ends up turning all of those cards against him to not only bring out Shooting Star Dragon, but to depower all of the Polar Gods and banish them.

To put it in perspective, Odin is in the background during the entire duel and is ''still'' bigger than the other two.

Another is that when Dragan summons Thor, he gains a green mark in his eye similar to another [[Anime/CodeGeass certain eye power]].

Then, he loses to Jack, Rua, and Ruka, and appears to die then. ''But'', he returns again to challenge Z-One, although after losing that duel he dies for real. This is not even counting Placido, one of his three embodiments who returns good-as-new after being torn ''in half'' by Shooting Star Dragon.

* ChekhovsGun: Life Stream Dragon, appearing to Rua as the final Signer Dragon ''over two years'' after it initially cameoed in the second ED, ''Cross Game'', and again in Ruka's vision in Episode 30.
* ChekhovsSkill: Doubles with ChekhovsGun above. At first, Rua's Life Stream Dragon being a Synchro Tuner monster and having the effect to manipulate the levels of other monsters on the field (in the anime) seems fairly random and a waste. However, after Rua lends it to Yusei for the final battle with [[BigBad Z-One]], Yusei tunes it to all the other Signer Dragons (minus Stardust Dragon) to Synchro Summon [[AllYourPowersCombined Shooting Quasar Dragon.]]
