* AdaptationalHeroism: On the Yorkist side Seto is much less of an asshole in this game than he was in ''Forbidden Memories'', or even in the regular canon for that matter. Subverted if you're on Yugi's team, where he's a manipulative villain again.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Henry Tudor (Yugi) comes off as much more of a jerk, especially in the Lancastrian ending where [[spoiler: he takes the credit for the player character's accomplishments once they head back to their own era.]] Strangely subverted if you're on Seto's team, as he's a GracefulLoser who nonetheless vows to win the war.

* AnotherSideAnotherStory: Both sides of the story reveal details about the over-arcing plot, particularly concerning Seto and the Rose Cards. Because of the PerspectiveFlip, [[spoiler:Seto [[GoodAllAlong is actually a pretty noble guy]] (though something of an AntiHero) if you side with the Yorkists, as opposed to a straight-up villain seeking the power of Manawyddan fab Llyr. He even apologizes for accidentally unsealing the entity using the Great Summoning of the Roses.]]

* BraggingRightsReward: Completing both sides of the game's storyline lets you duel all opponents on one save file... but you've beaten the game so why bother?
* ColorCodedCharacters: Red Rose for Yugi and the Lancastrians, White Rose for Seto and the Yorkists.

** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Rosenkreuz Christian Rosenkreuz]] has nothing to do with the Wars of the Roses or Richard III, and according to legends lived 50+ years before the Wars of the Roses. However, as [[Fridge/YuGiOhTheDuelistsOfTheRoses the Fridge page for the game]] goes into detail on, the symbolisms behind the Order of the Rose Cross Rosenkreuz founded, Seto's motives in this game, and the acknowledgment this is AlternateHistory, actually make Rosenkreuz's presence surprisingly appropriate.

* AnachronismStew: Aside from some of the European historical figures taking on Japanese names, things like machines and cartoons should not have existed during the Wars of the Roses.

Added DiffLines:

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The game's title has a habit of being marginally misspelled elsewhere, usually by [[TheTheTitleConfusion omitting the "The"]] (i.e "Duelists of the Roses"), using a singular noun (i.e. "The Duelist of the Roses"), or a combination of the two.

The game centers on the player character being pulled through time to arrive at Stonehenge circa the mid 1400s, during [[UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses the War of the Roses]]. [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfTudor Henry Tudor]], who prefers his nickname "Yugi", has sent his priest Simon [=McMooran=] to Stonehenge to summon the "Rose Duelist", who is prophesied to be TheChosenOne to turn the tide of war against the enemy Yorkists. However, Rose Crusader Seto Rosenkreuz has also arrived and offers the player to join the Yorkists and fight Yugi and the Lancastrians on their side. Both sides task the player to infiltrate the enemy's territory and duel their elite commanders to recover the [[PlotCoupon "Rose Cards"]] from the other side. Each side has 8, and together the cards are said to unlock great power.

* MagikarpPower: Leveling up a monster card's rank unlocks special abilities when that card is made your Deck Leader. Low level monsters are harder to rank up, but often get additional abilities to compensate for it.
