** Actually, looking through the manga... where exactly is this mentioned? It doesn't appear in the parts around the finals where the prize is mentioned.

** Imagine that there were no cards, and the series were all about magic-users actually summoning monsters and using spells to fight each other. It'd get boring if they kept using the same tactics in every battle, right? It's the same thing here; they add in new cards so that you can see them using new moves rather than using the same ones every time.

* How does Malik take his shirt off while wearing the Millennium Ring ''and'' a duel disk? This is pointed out in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' -- he would totally get stuck in his shirt and it would totally be really funny. Does he have some kind of IntangibleMan powers he also uses to take off his bangles and chokers? Did he just rip his shirt (after all, he seems to have brought a spare, since he [[ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction swapped]] his cute lavender top for a plain black tanktop when Yami Malik took over)? Why didn't he just take off his duel disk?

* Seto's big test to prove his worthiness to lead KaibaCorp. His mission was to turn $10 million into $100 million in one year. He did so by buying a majority stake in a company, then demanding to be bought out at ten times his purchase price, or else he would fire all the company's employees, whom the now minority owner cared deeply enough about to give in. How in the world did that scheme succeed? The idea that said super-protective owner, who apparently had so much surplus cash lying around that paying off Seto's outlandish demand was even possible, would even allow outside investors in his company at all, much less allow someone else to take over majority control, is hard enough to swallow. But why couldn't he have simply used a fraction of that buyout money to start a brand-new company and re-hire everyone Seto fired? It all makes LittleKuriboh's alternative narrative, wherein Seto simply pulled a gun on the company owner, much more plausible by comparison.

** Another aspect could be that fighting for a sibling would be seen as more heroic and selfless than fighting for personal reasons like going to dance school in America. Anzu would only be fighting for herself if her motivation was dance school, whereas Jounouchi is trying to win the prize money for someone else.


Added DiffLines:

** Probably a Player Killer eliminated him, and this could also apply to Mako Tsunami, who only bet two of his three chips against Yugi. There were 40 players invited, so 80 Star Chips total to compete for, but only the first four to get ten chips would qualify for the finals, which leaves 40 chips unaccounted for, which were probably won by the Player Killers.

* Okay, this happened in GX, I know, but it pertains to [[TheChosenOne Yiugi]] and the end of Anime/YuGiOh, so I figured it fit here better: It's blatantly hinted at that "Yugi" in GX looks like a lot like Atem, both from the time Judai got Winged Kuriboh and when he challenged Judai to a duel in that... alternate world/time/whatever the hell it was. But I ''swear'' I saw Yugi looking and sounding a lot like he did in Yu-Gi-Oh when he was on the boat to give Duel Academy his deck–you know, during that arc with that one kid on a serious mind-trip thinking he was "Yugi"/Atem. So, what the hell? Did the anime team just screw up, or was that a hint at Atem having come back at some point?

* How was Rex eliminated from the tournament? He said he won 5 star chips and when he duels Joey, they only wager 2 star chips since that's all Joey has. Joey wins so Rex loses 2 stars, but that still leaves him with 3.


Added DiffLines:

** As individuals, nothing that we know of, but as a group, they're unhappy with Seto for convincing them that Gozaburo doesn't respect them and promising them they power they deserve (however, this may also because of them being power hungry) if they help him overthrow Gozaburo as the KaibaCorp president only for Seto to not only back out of his end of the bargain, converting the company from war weapons to games but for also supposedly taking whatever power they had. At best, helping Seto was pointless and got nothing from their deal, at worst, they basically lost everything (taken literally in the end).

* Why are all of these "psychic" duelists not instantly disqualified? It doesn't even really matter whether you believe that psychics are real or not. If you don't believe in psychics, then they're clearly just cheating and should be disqualified. If you do believe in psychics, then they're ''still cheating'' by using their powers to gain an unfair advantage over other duelists. It's not even like any of them are subtle about it!

** Before Yami Yugi dueled Jounouchi (who at the time was brainwashed by Marik), Kaiba calls him out for believing in friendship. He tells him that Marik will likely use the Millenium Rod to brainwash Jounouchi and pit him against Yugi, which Marik in fact does. He also tells Mokuba that it's a duelist's destiny to challenge anyone who stands in their way, even a friend. This remains consistent with Kaiba, who believes that you have to take down anyone who stands in your way, regardless of circumstances. Kaiba probably thinks that if Yugi doesn't have the resolve to [[KickTheDog attack an injured opponent]], he's not a worthy rival. It's a dick move on Kaiba's part, but again, that's staying consistent with his character.

That same reason is why he didn't take either Destiny Board or Dark Necrofear from Bakura, And he did take the other two gods from Kaiba and Marik. So, either Yugi did take a card from his opponent, or he had a good reason not to (or, at least, not to put it in his deck).

** His motivation was never to power up his deck. The only cards he ever wins from antes were Red Eyes from Seeker, and the God Cards, and those each relate to some sort of motivation. Yugi took Red Eyes back from Seeker because he took it from Jounouchi. He ended up keeping Red Eyes because Jounouchi didn't feel worthy of owning it, which starts Jounouchi's subplot to become a true duelist. The God Cards are directly tied to the Pharaoh's missing memories, so he needs those cards to learn the truth about his past. It's also later confirmed that Kaiba took Des Guardius from Lumis and Umbra to make sure he went first in the four way duel, since that was decided by choosing a monster, and the order went from highest ATK to lowest. The downside is that whatever card is used can't be used for the rest of the tournament, but that didn't matter in Kaiba's case since he didn't have any other cards that work with Des Guardius.
