** In the first major duel of the series, Jaden was actually losing hard against Crowler from the beginning, but just managed to scrape by.

** Jaden lost the duel with Chazz, and probably almost got expelled.
** Winged Kuriboh isn't even alive, and Yugi didn't give it to him. It's some random card he found, and he tells the story for attention while thinking it's alive due to his schizophrenia, which only gets worse as the seasons go on.

** Alternatively, perhaps Johan's character was designed to be a DistaffCounterpart to Judai, while also a human counterpart to Yubel, hence the very feminine themes, in fitting with most other female duelists (a deck of sparkling jewelry, cute adorable monster friends) but by the time the designs were finalized and most of the story was written out, someone upstairs was worried about being so forward with turning the series into a straight romance and was worried about such a prominent female duelist not appealing to children and turned the character male in order to hide under the flag of "they're just close friends" while potentially improving their marketing. As the plot was already in its final stages they couldn't adjust it in time, and decided to slightly alter the design and simply turn the storyline from a RescueRomance plot to contain more homoerotic subtext. Note that this doesn't dismiss the potential canonicity of the above WMG, only offer a meta explanation.

*Yu-Gi-Oh GX is actually being told through Jaden's clouded, delusional memories of what he THINKS happened while he was at Duel Academy. In reality...
** Crowler is just slightly effeminate and doesn't like him, but isn't obsessed with him at all.
** Chumley's a bit chubby and a bit lazy, not what basically amounts to a Koala.
** Syrus and Alexis don't spend all their time sucking his dick.
** Bastion's less of a pretentious fuck and actually just genuinely smart.
** None of Crowler's sabotage attempts happened.
** Jaden lost the duel with Chazz, and probably almost got expelled.
** Winged Kuriboh isn't even alive, and Yugi didn't give it to him. It's some random card he found, and he tells the story for attention while thinking it's alive due to his schizophrenia, which only gets worse as the seasons go on.

* He seems to be estranged from his birth family, given that he refers to the Crystal Beasts as his family, and many trans people are estranged from their families due to transphobia and intolerance. While losing contact with one's family doesn't necessarily make someone trans in and of themselves, it does fit into the evidence already stated above.

* This theory makes the throwaway line in the dub about how Jun's brothers "had a long way to go if they wanted world domination" even more hilarious.

\n* Given that Yu-Gi-Oh got the western exclusive "Capsule Monsters" series(and Pokemon got the western exclusive "Return of Mewteo", it's not too far-fetched that we might see more episodes for GX in the future. The alternative theory for why they never dubbed season 4 is that they simply did not think it was very good and did not consider it worth dubbing(ratings for GX season 3 weren't exactly great either, and low ratings were cited as the reason why 4Kids never finished dubbing 5DS.
