* AssPull: After the pier duel, Kaiba waits until he's sure Jonouchi drowned to drop the key in the water to free him. The key somehow goes straight down, and despite being chained to an anchor that's dropped in the ocean Jonouchi is able to grab something that small, free himself, and swim up without losing consciousness or sinking too deeply.

to:

* AssPull: AssPull:
** In the Monster World arc Yugi and his friends are stuck in a DeathTrap, the only escape from which is for Dark Yugi to roll one specific number using two 10-sided dice. He has three chances, but already used up two of them without success. In other words, there is only a one percent chance that they will get out alive. Of course, on [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt the last possible turn, he just happens to roll the exact number]], and Dark Bakura decides not to cheat even though he never specified which was the right number to begin with. [[note]]It is possible that any "doubles" number that fit the slab would have worked, so that Bakura couldn't cheat, but this still gives the heroes only a 5% chance of success.[[/note]]

* CommonKnowledge: The manga starts out dark and bleak with Dark Yugi as a VillainProtagonist, only for it to get much lighter when the card game comes around...except that's only what the common rumor upholds. In reality, Dark Yugi was always an AntiHero (just with more extreme methods that are toned down through character development) who was protective of his friends. The early chapters had many lighthearted as well as dark moments. The arcs Duelist Kingdom and onward did not tone down the darkness but instead used different methods of expressing it.

Added DiffLines:

** In one episode, Joey faces Duke Devlin in a draft format of the [[MerchandiseDriven real life Pharaoh's Servant booster set]], which Yugi protests against, claiming it's all luck. Any ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' draft player would laugh at that claim.[[note]]However, Yu-Gi-Oh sets aren't structured for draft formats the way Magic sets are, since most cards in the former are VendorTrash[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* AccidentalAesop: The moral of the Dungeon Dice Monsters arc can be seen as "be patient and always check your email." If Otogi had waited a day before going out for revenge he'd have seen the contract and never gotten into conflict with Yugi at all.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The dub adds layers to Ryou Bakura by having him give a detailed description of the Millennium Eye and its powers, then claim to know only a little about it, and having Yami Bakura claim he promised to help him collect all the Items in the church scene at the start of season 5.

** The biggest MagnificentBastard in the series is Dark "Spirit of the Ring" Bakura, who pulled off a GambitRoulette which took over 200 episodes/chapters to complete. Hell, in the manga, he succeeds in faking a HeelFaceTurn. This guy really knows how to pull everyone's strings.
** Dark Marik had his moments too. As batshit insane as this guy is, he's also one of the best duellists in the entire show and an absolute master of both {{Batman|Gambit}} and {{Xanatos Gambit}}s.

** Anzu is this for DieForOurShip reasons, for being selfish and occasionally hypocritical in her love triangle with Yugi/Yami Yugi, or because of her friendship speeches (mostly in the dub, which lampshades the frequent friendship speeches). Kaiba fans tend to dislike her the most, as she has some of the most hostile interactions with him, especially in the anime where he saved her life. At least [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap she's farly useful to some extent]], unlike [[Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL Kotori]], who is even ''[[UpToEleven worse]]'' than her.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Compared to the [[TheScrappy widely notorious]] [[Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL Kotori]], many fans have softened their opinion towards Anzu/Tea for [[WhatTheHellHero calling out]] Kaiba over his cruel BatmanGambit on Yugi, dueling experienced players (Mai and Otaki) twice and ''winning'', getting a short character arc about her dancing career, and formulating a few daring gambits in dangerous situations. ''Anime/YuGiOhCapsuleMonsters'' also had this, as Tea knows a lot of historical facts, gets to be snarky without being overbearing, and has a lot of moments of supporting her friends, including Joey. It helps that she is directly involved in the action, with her Dark Witch being one of the strongest team members initially.
