* AntiVillain: Anthony Draco, Ember's former employer, is Type II. He is a [[spoiler: githyanki]] and now the CEO of a very large company who has been on Earth for several centuries. He is an ally of [=DePen=], but only because [[spoiler: Sonja]] is blackmailing him. He expresses regret at having to hold Ember hostage initially, [[spoiler: and his final act before he apparently dies is open a portal that helps her escape from place where the duel with Sonja had occurred, which is about to sink into the ocean.]]
* [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]]: Prior her attempt on Earth, Sonja had drowned at least five worlds whose inhabitants were less than pleasant.
** [[spoiler:Louis [=DaPen=] is also murdered after Sonja believes he is [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no longer useful]].]]
* BadassInDistress: This happens to [[spoiler: Jinx and Gears after they both tried to (and failed) to stop [=DaPen=].]]
* BadGuyBar: Ember goes to an ophidia hangout called The Den to look for Hebi-Na; unfortunately, Hebi-Na finds her first. (The story mentions that there are a lot of places like this that have specific species as clientele.)

Takahasu, Mukuro Enjo, Shira, Professor Frank, and Jill de Lancebeaux all appear as minor antagonists, while Crow appears as an ally; Jeagar and Divine both make brief appearances. [[spoiler:Rally]] appears, "uncredited", in a brief scene, and [[spoiler:Yusei Fudo]] himself appears in the epilogue.

To top it all off, the lamp forces her to wear a revealing harem girl's outfit.

** There was also a brief reference to Creator/JRRTolkien, where it is said that his interpretation of the enimity between elves and orcs was pretty accurate.

However, it quickly made apparent that they're all ''very'' frightened and are doing it to stay calm.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4759824/1/Shadowchasers Shadowchasers]]'' is a YuGiOh5Ds fanfiction written by Cyber Commander and the 1st fic of the Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}} series.

Taking place simultaneously with the events of YuGiOh5Ds, Ember (real name Eiko Michiko) is a young secretary whom suddenly finds herself attacked by an ophidia. Yet before she is killed, a man named Shichiro comes to her aid and challenges the ophidia to a duel. After winning, the man takes Ember to a restaurant and explains what happened: all the creatures and things that are of myth and legend are real. These are called Shadows, and they are hidden by a veil that most humans, or Mundane, cannot see past. Thus, in order to protect the humans, the Shadowchasers were created and led by Jalal Stormbringer as a sort of police force to enforce the Great Treaty. That's where dueling comes into play: whenever a Shadow and a Shadowchaser get into a disagreement, the resulting conflict must be fair. Since Ember obviously has the gift of being able to see Shadows, Shichiro invites her to join the Shadowchasers.
