* BuxomIsBetter: As seen [[http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2015/039/2/a/ygo_girls_by_xbrain130-d8h5njp.png here]], up to the [[Anime/YuGiOh5Ds third series]] the main female character had a larger chest size than the previous. Then came [[Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL the fouth series]], which averted it by having the main girl be a (nearly) flat 13-year-old. The trend seems to be starting again with [[Anime/YuGiOhARCV the fifth]] girl, however.

** Yusei's Synchrons. While a few of them are gimmicky, overall it's proven to be a pretty solid archetype in it's own right, even in today's PowerCreep, with a few Synchrons being staples of many Synchro heavy decks, especially Junk Synchron.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: The best way to make friends in the world of ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' is to beat them in a game. At the worst, they'll become your JerkWithAHeartOfGold [[TheRival Rival]]. This was how Yugi made several of his friends in the original manga, a traditional which isn't broken in its two anime adaptations and subsequent spin-offs.
** At least until ''ARC-V'', which [[ZigzaggedTrope zigzaggs]] between playing it straight (twice when the opponent changes his ways due to the audience's behavior instead of the hero's and once when the opponent reverts to his old personality before he became a FallenHero) and averting, mocking, or having villains exploit it.

** Taken to it's LogicalExtreme in Anime/YuGiOhArcV, though it's a bit more justified in that the HardLight setup of most duels makes a pretty awesome tool to [[{{Deconstruction}} wage war with or seriously harm others]].

* IdiotBall: Here's a drinking game -- watch the anime series and take a drink every time a duelist makes a move and doesn't notice the opponent has countered it until its too late. Blame RuleOfDrama, since apparently if it'll make for a dramatic twist then duelists can activate cards without announcing such (ie, Isis activating Blast Held By A Tribute to "secretly" infect Obelisk without ever announcing she activated it). In the real card game every action must be announced, and the target of that action announced if it targets, then your opponent is given a chance to respond with an action of their own, and when players are done chaining to the last move the combo resolves backwards step by step. And if a player passes on responding they don't get to rewind and change their minds once the other player responds. Judges definitely pay attention to this both ways, unlike the anime characters who would regularly be disqualified if they tried this type of trick.

** ''Duel Monsters'' has the original Solid Vision fields and Duel Disks are invented during it's run, but otherwise technology is similar to the late 90s.

** It reaches it's LogicalExtreme in ''[[Anime/YuGiOhARCV ARC-V]]'', where the HardLight setup of most duels essentially makes ''every'' Action Duel a Shadow Game from ''[[Anime/YuGiOh Duel Monsters]]''. Sora ended up getting sent to the infirmary after his duel with Kurosaki, and the Fusion Dimension uses it to wage war with the other dimensions. Despite this, there's no age limit for children to compete in Action Duels, though there at ''least'' seems to be some safety precautions with extremely young Duelist, such as making so they can only duel in extremely well padded areas. (Though, this does not stop the damage certain monster cards can cause.)

** Played straight in Season 1 of the second series anime since the game's rules weren't clearly defined yet, once they were, they stayed that way with only a few slip-ups.

** [[{{Deconstruction}} Taken to it's extreme and logical conclusion]] in ''ARC-V'', wherein not only does the BigBad [[spoiler: run a literal army of duelists]], the hero's rival [[spoiler: begins building a military force based around card games on what appears to be a GLOBAL SCALE]] without any known government interference, action, or involvement.

* ObviouslyEvil: If we put all the villains of the franchise in a line-up, you'd be able to peg more than half of them as evil. Notable exception to the anime version of [[HydePlaysJekyll Dark Bakura]], who is very good at impersonating his harmless and meek host's appearance and mannerisms to avoid detection. Even against Marik he didn't mind losing his life.

** ''ZEXAL'' has Duel Pads which are similar to real-life tablet computers and smartphones, with touchscreen controls and to access the internet with all that entails, and Duel Gazers allow for Augmented Reality Duels where monsters appear to interact with the environment.
** ''ARC-V'' has their (currently unnamed) Duel Disks look exactly like real-life tablet computers with a much more streamlined design from the Duel Pad, and are used for all they were in ''ZEXAL'' and more. They also do away with card trays to have them project HardLight surfaces the duelists place cards on, and appropriately buttons to control the device seem entirely forsaken in favor of voice commands. Solid Vision technology has further evolved to allow duelists to directly interact with the holograms, allowing for Action Duels where the duelists run about fantastic fields interacting with their monsters. Even the series version of D-Wheel have been updated with autopilots so advanced that characters who have never ridden a motorcycle before can do tricks during their duels.

** Anime/YuGiOhTenthAnniversaryMovie: A three-way team-up between the ''Duel Monsters'', ''GX'', and ''5D's'' protagonists. Ties into ''5D's''' plot through its villain, who comes from that series' BadFuture.

** This results in a very amusing exchange in ''GX'' when Judai challenges Saiou to a duel, but Saiou has been DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to find out how to execute his plan ''without'' having to duel him, and Judai is at a loss for what to do. He ends up dueling Judai anyway, but only because circumstances he didn't expect force him to.

* OddlyNamedSequel: ''GX'', ''[=5D's=]'', ''ZEXAL''. While the names are odd, they have meaning inside each series. The GX was for "Generation Next", ''[=5D's=]'' for the Five Signer Dragons, and ''ZEXAL'' is the SuperMode the hero receives. The fourth spin-off, ''ARC-V'', has yet to have its significance revealed, but a common theory is that it refers to the arc made by a swinging pendulum, or that it's the fifth series (story ''arc'').
