* MulticoloredHair: A requirement for the main hero, with Yugi and his starburst of black, red and blond reigning supreme. Downplayed with Judai, who has brown hair in two different shades. Since ''ZEXAL'', even the side characters have these kind of hair.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Practically all the games that were in this series. You would be amazed how epic a children's card game can be when it's played in a holographic arena, in a stadium full of cheering fans, being broadcast on national television, for a championship title.



** Alexis is ''GX'' fits this trope with her short skirt, shapely body, and large, curvy breasts.
** Akiza from ''5D's'' is easily the sexiest major female protagonist. While she herself was never flirtatious or seductive, her large breasts, exposed clevage, short skirt and leggings with straps were all censored or altered in the dub.

* CentralTheme: All installments share the theme of ThePowerOfFriendship. ''ARC-V'' and ''VRAINS'' share that theme alongside an individual one.

* MsFanservice: Each series has at least one female protagonist. While dueling skill varies, shapely bodies and outfits to show them off are a consistent. And then there's the Dark Magician Girl, the living incarnation of this trope for the franchise. Numerous other female Duel Monsters are quite nice to look at too.

** The original series has Tea and Mai portraying this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceGirl: All the YuGiOh female protagonists are this.
** Akiza becomes this after her CharacterDevelopment however. Before she was very insecure and sadistic.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: This franchise overall has a very idealistic edge its just that it takes a lot of redeemed characters and a heavy dose of EarnYourHappyEnding to make it there.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: The original series has a number of darker moments, especially in the manga, but still relies heavily on the idealistic end, with only truly evil villains not getting redeemed.

** ''ARC-V''slides back and forth on the scale, with a light beginning, ''very'' dark middle, and a surprisingly upbeat end.

** ''VRAINS'' adds bleakness and cruelty with Yusaku's backstory being comparable to Seto Kaiba's, but as the series progresses he comes to terms with his trauma and re-learns how to have fun.

** ''VRAINS'' is the bleakest and most cynical series in the franchise so far. It adds bleakness and cruelty with Yusaku's backstory being comparable to Seto Kaiba's, but as the series progresses he comes to terms with his trauma and re-learns how to have fun.fun. This makes the series start off cynical but slowly heading more towards the idealistic end.

* RousseauWasRight: Regularly proven and defended by the heroes, and challenged by many villains. This trope seems to be shown the strongest in the original, ''ZEXAL'', and ''VRAINS''.

to:

* RousseauWasRight: Regularly proven This is the philosophy that all installments in the franchise portray. ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' regularly proves that people are human, complex creatures. It shows humanity and defended by the heroes, and challenged by understanding in many villains. This trope seems to be shown of the characters. The series where this philosophy is the strongest seems to be in the more serious series like the original, ''ZEXAL'', ''5D's'' and ''VRAINS''.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: Its almost a requirement that each YuGiOh protagonist is a kind-hearted, passioante person who is very protective of his friends.
** Pretty averted hard with Yusaku. Unlike the other protagonists, Yusaku is a AntiHero who doesn't seem to enjoy dueling and doesn't appear to like socializing with people. That said however, Yusaku still shows heroic and noble intentions. He is still protective of any person as he does not want anyone to be harmed in his own mission.

** [[Anime/YuGiOhVRAINS VRAINS]] is more GreyAndGrayMorality. The hero is a rude, anti-social JerkWithAHeartOfGold and the villains are WellIntentionedExtremists.

Added DiffLines:

* ShadesOfConflict: Morality is often challenged in each installment but in the end seems to end towards WhiteAndGreyMorality.
** [[Anime/YuGiOhARCV ARCV]] goes completely overall all over the place. It starts off with traditional BlackAndWhiteMorality in the Standard dimension but changes depending on which world they end up in.
** [[Anime/YuGiOhVRAINS VRAINS]] is more GreyAndGrayMorality. The hero is a rude, anti-social JerkWithAHeartOfGold and the villains are WellIntentionedExtremists.
