* When you keep that in mind, a lot of things about ''[[Anime/YuGiOhGX GX]]'' that initially made no sense or just seemed weird suddenly make more sense. For example, the community at tv.com found a lot of the {{Freudian Excuse}}s ridiculous -- Martin making a DealWithTheDevil just because his parents got divorced, Fujiwara being overcome by Darkness and orchestrating {{Instrumentality}} just because his parents died... In retrospect, maybe they were ''supposed'' to look ridiculous and show how having some normal sadness or ParentalIssues in your past is a lame excuse for causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Even Edo thought him risking his life to protect Ekou made no sense -- deliberately showing how absurd TheDulcineaEffect is? And, of course, there's Fujiwara needing to use MindControl to get characters to RememberTheNewGuy and Manjoume's BreakTheHaughty arc going so far that it becomes detrimental to him. Basically, the more audacious and over-the-top this show's use of a trope is, the more likely it is that it's actually a TakeThat at the trope or its genre. ~@/{{Lale}}

* Why did the Winged Dragon of Ra obey Jaden even though he doesn't have an Egyptian heritage? Because Jaden's opponent, Franz, abused it and treated it like a slave, so fighting on Jaden's side would enable it a chance to get back at its owner!

* If You think about it The Entire reason that Yugi gives Jaden the "Winged Kuriboh" Card at the start of ''[[Anime/YuGiOhGX GX]]'' is because Yugi knew who he was, as well as the fact that he would use the Kuriboh cards because of the events of [[Anime/YuGiOhTenthAnniversaryMovie The Tenth Anniversary Film.]] This is because in the film Jaden uses The Flute Of Summoning Kuriboh. For Jaden, he is meeting Yugi for the third time, but for Yugi, they are meeting for the first time. (The order being "GX:1", "GX:180", "The Movie" for Jaden, but for Yugi "The Movie", "GX:180" "GX:1") This explains why Yugi would give a random duelist one of his cards, as well as why in episode 180, Yugi (the one Jaden duels, in the past) knows Jaden's name, without being told.

to:

* Judai's favorite card is a mix between a man and women, part dragon, has an effect that deals damage based on the opponent's monster attack and through a source of light becomes much more powerful and vicious, before it gets replaced by Elemental Hero Neos. Are we talking about Yubel, or Elemental Hero Flame Wingman?



* Take a look at the future Darkness/Nightshroud shows Judai in their final duel after watching 5Ds. Seem familiar?

* Judai not knowing what a "fiance" is makes a lot more sense (and shades into FridgeHorror) once you know that a significant portion of his childhood memories were erased.

*In the last two episode of Gx? Yugi says to Jaden that he will challenge the most powerfull duelist to what Jaden asks if he is stonger that Yugi. I always thought that Yugi refers to Atem since he always shils him (and the fact that he has the Gods' cards) but he actually might refers to the combinaison of him and Atem.

* After Zexal's reveal of the Numeron Dragon, Darkness/Nightshroud's speech about the origins of the universe as represented by a single card becomes much less metaphorical in retrospect.

* In the fourth episode of the first season, Duel Academy has an entire military transport just to protect its shipment of rare cards. It's validated when the captain mentions they've had to fight off "mecha-triggers(something like that) and attack subs". People probably died. This is a world where wars may very well be fought over trading cards.

* Before going to Domino City, Sartorius is coldly confessing to Aster that their friendship is only a part of destiny, like everything else he taught him, and Aster's purpose was served brainwashing members, Sartorius has tears running down his face. Strange for the BigBad to be crying while displaying his ManipulativeBastard plan, but later on revealed Sartorius was under DemonicPossession by the Light of Destruction and it was the real Sartorius crying as the Light cut off his friendship with Aster.
* Yubel is an exaggerated ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend during Jaden's childhood because she has been the guardian of the Supreme King's vessel for several unknown lifetimes. Who knows what experiences Yubel has encountered trying to protect him from people pretending to earn his trust, or even considering the Supreme King himself can turn out to be evil, Yubel didn't take any chances with whatever Jaden or his friends might believe his best interests are.
