* Yusei's known in the fandom for being the one Yu-hero to have never turned evil or been possessed by evil at some point, along the lines of Oricalcos Yugi, Supreme King Jaden, Dark Zexal Yuma and Astral, and Berserk Yuya. There are some possible reasons for this.

* In relay races, which the WRGP is based on, the typical strategy is to have the second-fastest start to set the pace, the third and fourth fastest to maintain their position or pull ahead, and finally the fastest to finish strong. This is the strategy implemented by Team 5D's as Jack starts off with strong power cards to take out as many players as he can, Crow follows up with his swarming tactics and strong Synchro monsters to chip away the remaining players, then Yusei finishes with his ability to use all of his teammate's cards in conjunction with his own to make a strong finish. This also includes Aki on bench who fills in Crow's position which she can use Black Rose Dragon to reset the situation and re-establish an advantage.

* Of all the cards Team Taiyou brought from the earliest days of Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragon Capture Jar seems like the oddest choice. After all, plenty of duelists at the tournament wouldn't have a dragon in sight. However given Team 5D's is well known for having Dragon Aces, they likely slipped it specifically to deal with them.
** The fact that most of the damage inducing trap cards they use like Attack and Receive, Power Throw, and Fools Dice are used by Taro, the last duelist, is a way to accelerate their burn strategy if Zushin isn't summonable. Compare to the defense boosting and damage healing traps that Yoshizo and Jinbei have whose effect on the team is a lot more passive.
** Zushin is also a way to easily work around the Magic Poker Equation. Unlike other ace cards like the Emperor Cores, Zushin is extremely common, and each of them are likely carrying three of them in each deck. As decks in the anime are generally at 40, they are able to maximize the odds of drawing it without supernatural powers.

* One thing that all of the Dark Signers had was Dark Synchro monsters, which usually took the form of whatever their deck was based around or what is fitting for their deck (Zeman, Hundred Eyes Dragon, Quilla, etcetc) and they were described as "guardians of the underworld". Carly and Misty were the only ones without Dark Synchro monsters, but even then they still have monsters with death motifs. Carly's Fortune Fairies were turned into the Fortune Ladies, who all had dark robes and their staffs ended with a scythe, which fit typical depictions of the Grim Reaper. Misty had the Dragon Queen of Tragic Endings, who is based on a story that ends in death and can revive itself by destroying a continuous spell in the game, essentially coming back from death.

Added DiffLines:

* If Zero Reverse killed most of the population and destroyed most of Domino City, this means that it may have KILLED some of the characters form the original series and GX.

** Most if not all of these characters suffered from in series loss of allies or friends to death or evil, which factored into all but Yami Yugi's brief dip into evil. While Jack did betray Yusei, it occurred pre series, and long before Yusei could have any special powers to corrupt him around.
** Due to the loss of magical elements in the series following the cult scare between season 1 and 2, magical elements in the series were diminished, particularly cult elements, and elements vaguely magical like did not return to the franchise in full for a long while. This absence made it harder for Yusei to have a believable fall from grace.
** Most of the other Yutagonists were normal people who were thrusted into dangerous events over the course of the series. They were not prepared for their harshness and reacted badly to them at certain points. Yusei unlike the others had a rough childhood as a orphan in the slums, so he was more tolerant to the dark parts of the world(s).
** If one counts the Supreme King half of Jaden as a alternate personality Yusei is the only protagonist to go through the entire series without another person bound to them in some way or another. These personalities and people are generally responsible for the dark modes either by possession or corruption, which by lacking Yusei did not have an avenue for corruption.

*In the dub, the guy commands a monster to attack, and he has the same voice as Joey. I assumed the remark about Jesse Wheeler was sarcastic as in "is that Joey Wheeler?" "Of course it's Joey Wheeler!"

* Here's one people do not seem to have noticed. All this plot armor, which becomes especially evident against Team Unicorn (but also affects other duels, which are interrupted before their obvious finish, like the one against Sherry)? It is because Signers cannot lose against non-Signers (or people with similar powers, like Team Ragnarok or Yliaster ,anyways), so it is actually justified, even if it is somewhat unsatisfactory, and creates no plot hole or idiot ball, just the orders of fate.
* More Fridge Hillarious, but if you look at the way Jose mounts his Duel Runner, in order to do so without revealing he's a [[spoiler cyborg]] he'd have to either ''sit in it backwards'' or ''lie down like on a toboggan''.

** And then Yusei destroyed Wisel, with Goyo Guardian in it. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Way to go Yusei]].

* The BadFuture of Zone and the others looks awfully similar to the one shown to Judai by Darkness/Nightshroud doesn't it? Another case of (retroactive?) foreshadowing perhaps.

*** After Arc V's reveal of the multiverse, we can simply assume that GX (Fusion Dimension) never occured in this timeline (Synchro Dimension), leaving plenty of time for Synchro Summon to be invented, Zero Reverse to occur, and Ushio to join the force.

*** Not really. Bonds Beyond Time confirms that at least the first 3 series all take place in the same dimension, with the dimensions of the specific summoning mechanisms all separate from the main stories so far.
