** Furthermore, Rua (Leo) and Ruka (Luna) both shifted from being voiced by Creator/CassandraLee from episodes 12-64, to being voiced by Eileen Stevens from episodes 65 onwards and the 10th anniversary movie after the latter moved away from New York to California and unable to constantly travel between both States.

** While the original Japanese airings avoided this, getting a consistent timeslot and never going on hiatus, the dubbed American airings weren't so lucky. First appearing on the CW Saturday morning block, its timeslots constantly changed around, airing as early as 7am or as late as almost noon. It also went on hiatuses often, and refused to air certain episodes due to sensitive content. Finally CW stopped airing it since DM proved to get better ratings. ''5D's'' did a ChannelHop to Cartoon Network, but its problems didn't end there. Episodes aired at 8am on weekdays, a time when most of the target audience would be attending school. New episodes updated randomly and one had to check the 4kids website to find the latest episodes. Oh, and streaming episodes are only available for Americans. And ''then'' the 8AM timeslot was reserved for reruns of Anime/{{Pokemon}}. Back to the CW.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Especially prominent in the dubbed version, since 4kids recycles their actors a ton. We have Yusei as [[Anime/YuGiOh Tristan]], Jack Atlas as [[Anime/YuGiOh Bakura]], Ushio is [[Anime/YuGiOh Yami]], and (early on) Rex is [[Anime/YuGiOhGX Saiou]] and [[Anime/YuGiOh Grandpa]]. Aki's VA is also Mai Valentine's [[TheOtherDarrin Season 4 voice]], and the Dark Magician Girl ([[MsFanservice notice a trend?]]).
** Aki's Japanese voice is [[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Jasmine]].
** Jack Atlas's Japanese one is [[Anime/GunxSword Van]] and [[Anime/YuGiOhGX Honest]].
** Takasu is [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Garterbelt]].
** [[Creator/MasayaOnosaka Harald]] is [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Leeron]]. [[BrainBleach You will never look at Harald the same again.]]
** Rudger is [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Akuma]], [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 aka]] [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken Gouki]].
** The German dub also recycles some voice actors from previous series. Most notably, Divine gets the voice actor of the little Yugi. Of course, German fans love Kiryu's German voice. It's freaking [[Manga/DragonBall Son Goku]]!
** In Episode 85 'Mother Knows Best', Zora's son, Lyndon, is voiced by [[Series/TheFlash2014 Robbie Amell]].



* RelationshipVoiceActor: We know that Yusei and Kiryu are friends. And they were best friends before the bad stuff happened to Kiryu. Their German voice actors are Wanja Gerick and Tommy Morgenstern, who voiced [[Manga/DragonBall Krillin and Son Goku]], respectively.

** It's been suggested that this is also the reason why the Arcadia Movement was never followed up on, due to a recent at the time scandal in Japan involving a cult, and thus the series' creators doing their best to avoid anything cult-related.

* ExecutiveMeddling: In 2015, news came out that the reason for a lot of the plot changes made in Season 2 could be attributed to the same, strange reason. Carly's season one voice actress was discovered to be a member of a dangerous cult that was under investigation in Japan at the time, which led to her being fired and the production staff panicking to cover up anything [[TooSoon that might make the series seem pro-cult]]. Thus, Yliaster was retconned to being founded not by mystics in the past but time travelers from the future who went ''back'' to the past, Carly's entire arc was excised and she was DemotedToExtra, and the Psychic Duelists, who ''were'' actually a cult, simply vanished without explanation, leaving poor Aki without a plot of her own for the majority of the second season.

** Crow was intended to be a ''villain'', and the FinalBoss of the Dark Signer arc. However, his Blackwing cards in real life sold very well, so he was quickly rewritten as a protagonist and worked in the story as such. This resulted in Rua's role in the story being reduced, and the intention for him to get his Signer Dragon and become the Fifth Signer was dropped until the end of the series so Crow could be the Fifth Signer.

* RealitySubtext: At the time of the show's airing, the Roma Sophie cult was grabbing some headlines in Japan. Carly's voice actress, Li-Mei Chiang, was connected to them, which led to her being fired. Some fans theorize that this influenced the near-complete jettisoning of any occult aspects from the series after the Dark Signer arc.
