* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: The reason for this is that this is one of the earliest ''Yu-Gi-Oh'' video games to incorporate continuous effects, so ''every single time'' a card is played or a monster attacks, the game takes about two-three seconds to visually scan the field for any effects it needs to resolve, and will then do so if it finds one. You may want to hold off adding Slifer the Sky Dragon to your deck, because if you summon him, when that auto-scan goes off, it will find Slifer, notify you of his effect and resolve it, even if there's nothing new about the state of said effect. To repeat -- this will happen every. ''Single''. '''Time''', a card is played! Even worse, ''Stairway to the Destined Duel'' came out on the same console two years ''earlier'' than it ([[MarthDebutedInSmashBros in Japan, anyway]]), and incorporated continuous effects far more smoothly. One wonders why they felt the need to take a step back.

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Bandit Keith. In the manga and anime, he wasn't a major threat. In the game he steals the Millennium Puzzle, thus disabling Yami Yugi, and has the Winged Dragon of Ra on his side. [[spoiler: Well, except said Dragon is in Sphere Mode]]. Also, he usurps control of the Ghouls from Marik, who controlled ''him'' in the anime.

** Towards the end of the game, Panik and the Mimic of Doom realize that just because they lost a duel, it doesn't mean they can't keep dueling until they win. Joey steps in to hold them off while you and Yugi escape.

** Your one saving grace in hard duels is that the computer will always attack your cards if they are face down in defense mode unless their monsters have 0 Attack. This will happen even if you use a card to cover up previously seen monsters. Once you get an advantage on an opponent, you can keep setting defensive monsters to bait them into attack into your Traps and/or keeping their monsters in attack mode. They will also always attack with their monsters in order of strength, letting you bait them into having their strongest monster attack your defending monster with an Attribute advantage over it.

Added DiffLines:

** For the first turn of a match, if the AI scans your hand and sees you have an attribute advantage monster, they'll usually place their monster in face-up attack mode, letting you see which monster to use (though they sometimes play traps along with it).

* PurposelyOverpowered: The Egyptian God Cards... with the exception of the Winged Dragon of Ra's Sphere Mode. All of them, except Ra's Sphere Mode, have extremely powerful effects and 4000 ATK and 4000 DEF. The God Cards are excluded from the ElementalRockPaperScissors, and they're immune against destruction effects, even if you're holding them in the hand. To top it all off, they cost no Deck capacity, so including them in the Deck frees up space for your stronger cards. And unlike in ''The Sacred Cards'', the Egyptian God Cards won't activate any destruction Trap Cards. And The Winged Dragon of Ra's Phoenix Mode is the GameBreaker due to avoiding AwesomeButImpractical.

* PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling: Mako Tsunami in Chapter 4. He's the first theme duelist who you can rematch at will, and he stays true to that theme, which is Water monsters. With a deck stacked with Thunder monsters, you can take him out with minimal difficulty.[[note]]Of course he still has a few non-Water monsters to cause trouble, but unless you get unlucky and he opens with them in his hand, by the time he draws them you'll have enough of an advantage that it's too little too late.[[/note]] He drops Umi, Power of Kaishin, and plenty of high-level Water monsters. Grinding against him lets you build your own Water deck with good cards for it, and anything you don't want can be sold for good cash, especially Fortress Whale, which nets a cool 2,000 bucks at the card shop.

** Later, the Millennium Guardians in China in Chapter 7. They ''very'' often drop the Divine-attribute monsters that sell for 2000 each, and also give you cards afterwards that you can farm and sell. While they lack Mako's thematic deck to exploit, they each only have 3000 Life Points, so if you can get the hang of beating them, once again they provide a steady source of reliable income.

** In ''The Sacred Cards'', an exploit to quickly increase duelist level was to fight a boss-type duelist that rewards 30 deck points, and then forces you to face another boss right after (Ishizu and Kaiba are a good example). Fight the second boss with no ante and lose on purpose, and you'll respawn in your house still up the 30 deck points you won. Go back, face the first boss again, beat them, lose to the second, and repeat for quick level grinding. The developers seemed to have been made aware of this exploit, because any BossRush in this game, all but the last opponent will give only 1 deck point.

The plot starts off when the Millennium Puzzle goes missing. Your character, along with Yugi and Joey, sets out to find it. And it appears other Millennium Items are also missing. The group soon finds the cause: Pegasus Crawford/[[DubNameChange Maximillion Pegasus]] has returned! Now sporting a ponytail, EyepatchOfPower, and calling himself "Sol Chevalsky/Taiyou Tenma", Pegasus plans to resurrect Reshef, an Ancient Egyptian SealedEvilInACan. The only cards powerful enough to stop him are the Egyptian God Cards, but they have been sealed in stone. To awaken their power and seal Reshef away, you must collect the Millennium Items.
