* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Vladimir mentions once that the EvilOverlordList is ''incredibly'' easy to look up on the internet, but for some strange reason, real evil overlords rarely read it or follow any of the advice on it.

* GuestFighter: Not counting anyone associated with the ''Francise/SuperMarioBros'' franchise other than ''[[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor The Thousand Year Door]]'', there are a few. Ryo uses a card that depicts the Marvel Comics villain the ComicBook/GreenGoblin, but it appears to be a normal card. Aesop later uses a card that depicts DC Comics AntiHero ComicBook/{{Etrigan}}, [[spoiler: but this one is a Dark Card, and is appears to be the real thing.]]

** In ''Redux'', [[spoiler: not only is the mystery of who Falagar is and what is his agenda left unanswered, but Lyrius also survives the FinalBattle and is also set to go on a RedemptionQuest by St. Cuthbert to rescue Iris and another individual he had failed to save in the past.]] Cyber Commander has confirmed that he plans to address the former in an upcoming fic and that 7th Librarian plans to address the latter in his own works.

* FateWorseThanDeath: Rather than kill her defeated enemies, the Shadow Queen trapped them in an interdimensional known as the Graveyard.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** The Shadow Queen reviews footage of previous duels like Yugi, Joey, and Kaiba's struggles against Dartz and his henchmen to learn from the bad guys' mistakes. Also, to increase her chances of victory, she loans cards to ordinary people, because this causes them to count as working for her, meaning these ordinary people would break the curse if they were to beat Stan, Fran, and Andy. In ''Redux'', when the Queen revives her former ally Smithy, she has a very clever backup plan in case he is defeated (which he is) sending Magical Scientist to sneak into his lair while he and the heroes are distracted to steal his blueprints. This backup plan is successful, and threatens to have repercussions that affect the remainder of the story.
** Several of the villains use multiple decks and switch in their rematches to keep Stan, Fran, and Andy guessing. Ivan also states that ''all'' of the Shadow Spawn have multiple decks (although they each remain within their own Attribute) so that no-one can truly prepare for them when they are doing their jobs as the Queen's enforcers.

%%* GenreSavvy: Stan, especially in ''Redux''.



* WrongGenreSavvy: In the original, Melissa, Kurtis, Tyson, Maria, and Leopold attack Stan, Fran, and Andy upon their entry into the Palace of Shadows. Ordinarily, this would be a very [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim practical move on their part]] since the trio is an enemy of theirs and this act would get rid of them, but it becomes this trope since the Shadow Queen's CurseEscapeClause ''requires'' the threesome to be defeated by her or someone under her employ (such as the Shadow Spawn) in a fair contest. Since this attack would be anything ''but'' a fair contest, the Shadow Queen has to enact a VillianousRescue so as to keep her only way out of the Palace from being destroyed. This scene is not present in ''Redux''.



** This is Bleck's response when the protagonists ask who Hooktail and Gloomtail's eldest brother was, although Stan, who is very GenreSavvy, seems to have a good idea who it is. [[spoiler: Bleck clearly knows that it's Bonetail, who is the villain in two spin-off fics written by mario72486, one of which is considered part of the Shadowchasers series.]]

* AscendedExtra: Aesop. From being just another duelist that Stan defeats to earn another Crystal Card in the original to becoming one of the finalists in ''Redux''. (According to Cyber Commander, Aesop has officially become Wanda's replacement. See OldShame below.)

** As mentioned above, if the Queen or anyone working for her, whether they want to or not (mind-controlled people and people who don't know they're working for the Shadow Queen, like people she loans cards to, count), defeats Stan, Fran, and Andy in a fair contest, the spell is lifted and the Queen can leave.

* HouseRules: The Deckmaster system is in place for all duels that occur inside the Palace of Shadow, which have been upgraded slightly.

The Shadow Queen finds out and saves them. She then offers them food. The heroes are understandably confused. (See PragmaticVillainy above for her reasons.)

** In the original version, Merlee senses dark forces and deduces that a new hero will eventually emerge to oppose it. This alludes to the now-cancelled fic ''YuGiOh: Tilting the Balance''.
