* SeasonalRot: The fourth season, "Waking the Dragons" aka the Doma arc, is derided by some fans for consisting of a lengthy filler arc that {{Retcon}}s the origins of Duel Monsters, has an insanely powerful villain who gets no comeuppance and has the ''only'' time Yami Yugi legitimately loses in the franchise aside from his final duel. Naturally, it is a frequent source of mockery in WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries.

** Ryo Bakura spends the ''entire series'' under the control of a sadistic ancient spirit. He had to constantly change schools, living with the guilt and negative stigma of having his friends fall into a coma whenever they played a game with him because of the evil personality within the Millennium Ring. After Yugi and his friends free him of the Ring's influence, he's nudged into putting the Ring back on to escape a maze, becoming an unknowing pawn for the spirit thereafter. At Battle City, as part of a plan to help Marik, Yami Bakura stabs Bakura's arm so badly he had to be hospitalized. Even then he can't get rest, as his body's dragged out of bed to duel Yugi and Yami Marik, the latter of whom killed him temporally. At the beginning of the Millennium World arc, Bobasa refuses to let him into the Pharaoh's mind, despite his desire to help his friend, because of the darkness within his heart, which we all know is the evil spirit of the ring. He puts on a [[StepfordSmiler smile]], and runs away, in tears. The anime does very little to make it better and reduces his screentime, omitting him entirely from non-manga adapted adventures.
*** ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarksideOfDimensions'' continues this, as [[spoiler:he was possessed by the Ring when he was ''four years old'' and had it fuse into his chest, leading to Dark Bakura killing Shadi and his father, and Aigami wants to kill him for the incident]]. Ryo mentions not wanting to talk about the Ring at ''all'' and suffers headaches when pressed, then becomes trapped in another dimension for the last third of the movie. [[spoiler:The Ring itself also advocates killing him at one point]].

** While exploring the Pharaoh's tomb, Yugi's grandpa was shot in the back and left for dead, barely hanging onto a ledge. Somehow, the Pharaoh--who was still a spirit trapped in the Puzzle at this point--pulled him up and apparently healed him, as the wound isn't brought up again.

** Franchise-wide, you could make a drinking game out of all the times [[DeusExMachina a duelists topdecks just the card they need]], but you would destroy your liver after a single story arc. Rarely does the more skilled duelist actually win in the show; more often than not the character the writers want to win will pull a victory at the last moment. This is usually done by revealing a new card you've never heard of before that happens to do exactly what they need done to reverse the situation, and this can come up multiple times for both opponents to prolong the match.

This is usually done by revealing a new card you've never heard of before that happens to do exactly what they need done to reverse the situation, and this can come up multiple times for both opponents to prolong the match longer. It's justified sometimes due to a few different reasons.
*** We see on at least a couple occasions that the characters are on the lookout for new cards. Yugi's grandfather owns a game shop and Kaiba is a billionaire known to have briefcases packed full of spare cards, so it's not unfeasible they regularly get new cards off-screen, and it would be silly to give a decklist for them before every duel. Spin-offs similarly give protagonists reasonable ways they could consistently acquire new cards off-screen.
*** A few duels have the duelists obviously stalling for time while they draw what they need, or trying various strategies and them not working so they try something new. If there ''is'' one card that can help you turn it around, it helps the realism that the opponent has a counter ready, or the duelist has to stall while they wait to draw that card.

** It's often an explicit power to be able to draw, or even create whole cloth, the cards needed to win. Dark Yugi has that as his main power, and Yuma and Astral's Zexal form explicitly describe their power as being able to create new cards as needed.

** Anzu/Tea. Her detractors dislike her for being a non-Duelist and stereotypical female [[TheChick cheerleader]] that doles out corny friendship speeches, and is often negatively compared against Mai from the same series and [[Anime/YuGiOhGX Asuka/Alexis]], [[Anime/YuGiOh5Ds Aki(za)]], and [[Anime/YuGiOhArcV Yuzu]] from later series, who actually do participate in duels. On the other hand, her fans appreciate that even despite not being a Duelist, she actually does have many courageous and assertive actions to her name (see RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap), which became even more apparent in contrast with NeutralFemale [[Anime/YuGiOhZeXal (Ko)tori]].

** Kaiba, especially due to the anime. In the manga he was an antagonist at first, stealing the Blue-Eyes White Dragon card and riving others to ruin to get the other three. After his Experience of Death Penalty Game, which was meant to teach him about the heart of the cards, he built a huge death trap to kill Yugi and was fine with killing his grandpa and friends as well. He was still a jerk after his Mind Crush, especially to Joey. Kaiba gets better when trying to save Mokuba and empathizing with Ishizu in Battle City, but overall isn't a nice person. He became a BreakoutCharacter that underwent AdaptationalHeroism with the anime casting him as an anti-hero along with Yugi and Jonouchi, and for it is often seen as a main hero alongside the rest of the cast despite still being a jerk. Being TallDarkAndSnarky and qualifying for EvilIsCool also plays a part in this, as does his abusive childhood with Gozaburo Kaiba explaining his more extreme actions.
** Dark Bakura and Dark Marik are ridiculously popular with legions of fangirls, and are often shipped with each other or their alter-egos. Apparently the fandom missed that the two are both sociopathic murderers who repeatedly try to kill the heroes (and each other at a couple points) and care nothing about their alter-egos except as pawns to be used against the heroes.

** Seto Kaiba, who was originally intended to be a VillainOfTheWeek. The Duel Monsters card game brought him back as a recurring antagonist, and he got more and more popular from there when he became a hero, to the point that the manga-based ''Darkside of Dimensions'' movie was originally all about him. The card game itself only meant to be featured in a single story but got so popular it featured heavily in the manga and they based the second anime adaptation around it.

** In terms of actual cards, there's the Dark Magician Girl, because she was powerful and very pretty. She even appears in most of the sequel spin-offs.

** In his Battle City duel with Kaiba, Yami Yugi spontaneously summons Red-Eyes Black Dragon from his hand. How? Because Kaiba activated the Flute of Summoning Dragon, which lets ''both'' players summon dragons from their hands. A rule that was never brought up before or again afterward, and which the real card does not have. What's particularly confusing is that the only reason Red-Eyes was summoned was for the trite symbolism of Jonouchi helping Yugi to duel; had the Red-Eyes not be summoned, the rest of the duel could have proceeded exactly the same way.
