--->'''Joey''': The best part is, I have no idea how I did any of this!
--->'''May''': Do you even ''read'' the descriptions on your cards?

** One that infuriated fans in the Kalos League Finals was [[spoiler: Ash-Greninja's Water Shuriken attack [[NoSell doing absolutely no damage whatsoever to Mega Charizard X]] yet Mega Charizard X's Blast Burn strikes down Ash-Greninja. The anime seems to want to imply that the Ash-Greninja lost because it poured all of its power into the Water Shuriken and that's what caused him to lose, but the fact that a water attack, even one charged up to full power, didn't even hurt a ''fire type'' seems to have infuriated fans to the point of calling it an AssPull.]]

* In the anime, the Egyptian God Cards cannot be effected by any card effect apart from each other's, and in Ra's case, not even that. However, in the first duel with The Seal Of Orichalos, it does raise Obelisk's Attack Points. Apparently, because the Orichalcos is more ancient, it has more power than the Egyptian Gods.
* The duel against Dartz has quite a bit of this. First, it is said that The Seal Of Orichalos can't be made to leave the field by any means. However, Dartz does remove it, in order to activate an enhanced version, which is later replaced by an even more enhanced version. Then when the Pharaoh summons the Legendary Knights, they destroy the Orichalos anyway. When one of Dartz monsters is destroyed, he pays all of his Life Points to summon Divine Serpent, a monster with infinite Attack Points, and an effect that makes him able to continue, even though he has no Life Points. Unsurprisingly, despite being hit by an attack with infinite power behind it, [[PlotArmour the Pharaoh still doesn't lose]], and uses a card that also makes unable to lose, as long as he keeps his Dark Magician Girl in play. Then the Pharaoh has two of his Legendary Knights attack Divine Serpent, and make their attacks constantly reflect each other, until their Attack Points raise to infinity. Then he suddenly sacrifices them in the middle of an attack, so as to summon a fused form of the Legendary Knights, which gains the infinite Attack Points, and then is able to destroy Divine Serpent, and win the duel.

* During Episode 57, Dark Yugi is able to play the trap card Lightforce Sword as soon as he draws it. This is the card that prevents him from losing to Exodia next turn, so it's a significant move. As a Trap Card, the rules should force him to set it first then legally activate it on the next turn. This instance is the result of the anime adapting the duel from the manga without taking into account that the manga version of Lightforce Sword is a Spell Card.

* During his Duel with Kajiki, Jonouchi's Alligator Sword is inside the Fairy Box, but when Umi is played, the monster almost drowns. Aside from the FridgeLogic that alligators cannot be drown that easily, Umi has no effect that would harm monster cards that cannot breath underwater, a mechanic that only works with the hologram system, or negate effects of other cards, such as Fairy Box.

** One episode has Cosmo picking Da Rules and ripping off the page that says he they can't help Timmy win the movie's competition, but he never does it again. The funniest part is, Timmy changed his mind later so he didn't even break the rule.

* Every point just made regarding TableTopRolePlayingGames is also true of table top wargames, with the exception that it becomes a rules agreement between friends. The best solution is roll a die, then check the FAQ for a ruling sometime later. It also helps that these rules oversights come up less often in wargames, which tend to have clear-cut mechanics with units only having a few actions available on their turn. Players often like adding story-based rules to the games, too.

* In ''Manga/YuGiOhR'' there was an odd rule pertaining to Fusion Monsters; a duelist's field was considered to contain both the Fusion Monster and its components. This meant Yugi's Arcana Knight Joker counted as ''four'' monsters when determining the ATK of Devil's Eraser, which had 1,000 ATK times the number of opposing monsters. (The rule implemented simply to make it strong enough to defeat Arcana Knight Joker.)
