* In Pharaoh's Throne, when Yami summons the Egyptian gods, he calls out their names. So why in the hell did he use Ra? Nowhere else was Ra used for the actual God, which is named Mega Ultra Chicken in this series. Why did he change the name? Why did he use the name from the proper series? [[AdventuresofSonictheHedgehog WHY!? WHY!? WHHHYYYY!!?]]

** It went as far as stopping to be a joke and became Marik's actual personality, even for a comedy series, changing a character's personality just because you want to change the jokes is too far-fetched, in-universe, Marik's being a poorly closeted homosexual and other stuff is actually taken serious(much to Florence's chargin), or at least as serious as it can get.
* Duke's inability to explain why Dungeon Dice Monsters is completelly different from Duel Monsters, each game have it's own very distinct set of rules, not to mention DDM is fairly more luck based that DM, Duke only uses the same creatures from DM, which is actually a fairly smart marketing idea(as DM is already an obscenelly popular game) as long as the holder of the copyrights, who is most likelly Pegasus(not to mention, several monsters appear on ancient stone tablets and stuff, it is possible they are public domain characters), agreed with it, which he aparently did, so, [[MostAnnoyingSound tell]] [[CallBack me]], is there anything on it other that RuleOfFunny?

*** I already mentioned that on the very question, Duke could just say "It uses dices" or something to this effect to shut everyone's mouth for good…
** Duke's arguing the finer points of a dice game to a bunch of teenagers and a 3000 year old Pharaoh who's a massive dick. Duke could have Pegasus show up and tell them that DDM and DM are different, and they just wouldn't care.

** Mega Ultra Chicken is the curent day name of the monster, I mean, you don't think Slifer was called "The Executive Producer" in ancient Egypt, do you?

* During Yami Plays Fallout3, why does Yami keep using Creator/LiamNeeson's "I will find you…" speech from Taken? Neeson's had a lot more films since then, and he's played more memorable roles, so it's a bit of an odd choice.
** The "I will find you…" line is a fairly popular meme at the moment that viewers can easily recognize/relate to or something. And it sounds bloody hilarious coming out of Yami's mouth, so why not?

** Slifer making Kaiba's ego look miniscule could be due to the fact that the card is named so because Slifer the Sky Dragon was renamed from Osiris the Sky Dragon by Slifer the... Executive Producer. The audacity of that move is why the comment is made. It's not Slifer's size that makes Kaiba's ego look small,[[FridgeBrilliance it's his ego]]!

* So… Is his (Yami Bakura) name Florence or not?! The exact line is "Did you know they wanted to call me Florence? Who names a boy Florence?". But it seems like Florence is the most commonly used name for him. It is quite confusing.

*** Same reason everything that happens in this series...RuleOfFunny.
* In episode 52, I know it's RuleOfFunny, but there's a part where Yugi can't remember Duke's name… Despite the fact he said it about 20 seconds earlier at the frickin' start of the same conversation. It just bugs me is all.

* Okay, I am ''very'' confused. Did Téa [[spoiler:get her body back in Episode 53 or is Marik now the one controlling her?]] I originally thought it was the latter, but I've heard people say it's the former.
** No,[[spoiler: she's got her body back. If Marik was in control, you'd probably hear his voice coming from her. If you've ever seen the unabridged series though, then you can just wait a few episodes and he will be possesing her after all. Should be fun.]]

** I kinda think that's part of the joke. Abridgers take jabs at each other all the time. LK even takes jabs at TeamFourStar sometimes...even though [[TakeThatMe he IS a part]] of TeamFourStar.

* While Joey calling Ra/Mega Ultra Chicken [[Pokemon Moltres]] was funny, if LK is familiar enough with Pokemon to reference that one and the Kanto region, wouldn't he know that there are non-Kanto locations where Moltres can be found, like Mount Silver, Mount Ember, roaming Sinnoh... And now, the Ep.59 opening argues exactly otherwise.

* Yugi's about to give Kaiba the finishing blow during a duel, which will blow him off the side of Pegasus's castle and possibly kill him. Yugi's friends are ecstatic that Yugi is going to kill Kaiba. Tea stops Yugi from making the final blow because, if he does, "Kaiba might survive." So how does this work? They all would love to see him dead. They can either have Yugi win and risk Kaiba living, or have Yugi lose or have Kaiba survive regardless. So Tea makes Yugi let Kaiba live because there's a chance Kaiba will live anyway?

* Why does Alister say that the names of the relevant nations in his backstory are not important when questioned by Kaiba about it? The fact that he doesn't know the names is actually important to the story, considering that it's the reason why he chose to blame the Kaiba family instead of directing his vengeance towards the nation that was at war with his homeland.
