* In a chapter of ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersTournamentOfShadows'', Bruno gets the idea to up the ante in one duel, wagering Alice of Despairland for his opponent's card Lost Time. Unfortunately, Alice is a sapient card, and she is ''very'' upset he would do so without so much as asking her. He nearly loses the duel as a result, as he is unable to draw her card if she doesn't allow it, and does badly until they come to an agreement - with a rather thorough apology from Bruno.
