* TheAllSeeingAI: While most ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' games in the pre-DS era were rife with this anyway, Pegasus--a frequent offender where this trope is concerned--was likely intentional given the powers of his [[MagicalEye Millennium Eye]]. As such, [[ArtificialBrilliance Pegasus is one of the few CPU opponents who doesn't regularly fall for the player's traps and bluffs]], instead carefully calculating terrain and (facedown) card effects before making his move.

* VillainHasAPoint: Seto's argument for why you should join the Yorkists is a pretty good one: The Lancastrians were losing the war badly enough that they needed to summon you, so they really aren't in much of a position to gather the Rose Cards and send you back to your time.

->''"A card! A card! My kingdom for a card!"''



The game centers on the player character being pulled through time to arrive at Stonehenge circa the mid 1400s, during the War of the Roses. 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.

The tiled board can be terraformed with Field Cards, with appropriate power boosts given for monsters battling on them. Players move their cards around the board, attacking opposing monsters or attacking the opposing Deck Leader directly, to deplete the opponent's Life Points. Otherwise the usual EarlyInstallmentWeirdness of the early ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' video games, particularly freely fusing cards into new ones and using power-up cards on monsters they shouldn't effect, are in play.

* EarlyBirdBoss: Rex Raptor is fought on the Wasteland terrain, which increases his monsters' strength by 500 points. At this point in the game, the only other opponent you'd be able to defeat would be Weevil, whose forest creatures are weakened by Wasteland terrain. If you start with Fairy King Trusedale, whose deck is almost all insects and plants, your only hope is judicious use of the Forest magic card and Acid Trap Hole. On later tries Rex isn't nearly as bad when you have more variety in monsters.
* EnemyMine: Yami Bakura is on the side of the Lancastrians as Jack Cade.

** 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 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.

In the Yorkist campaign, this is dropped (since you're allied with him), but Seto [[spoiler:rewards the player with a pendant as thanks for their efforts, telling them to show it his descendants in their time and pledging his family's loyalty to the powerful Rose Duelist.]]
