Charming Gambler YKTTW Discussion
He's got a way with the cards...and the ladies
- "I guess Lady Luck has got the hots for old Duke Devlin-- like everyone else."--Duke Devlin, Yu-Gi-Oh!
Examples:Anime and Manga
- Duke Devlin of Yu-gi-oh (see page quote), inventor of Dungeon Dice Monsters and possessor of legions of fangirls--in-universe and out.
- Gambit, obviously.
- The DCU's Bat-Lash, who was inspired by Maverick (see Television example below)
- There's one Lucky Luke where a perpetually-unlucky guy is on the winning streak of his life, with all the saloon beauties hanging on his arm.
- Brett Maverick
- James Bond, especially the casino scenes.
- The eponymous protagonist of the Trinity movies is a gambler, a ladies' man, and a Gunslinger.
- Dale Rowan in the Beka Cooper series by Tamora Pierce. He manages to utterly charm the very prickly Beka, who previously resisted the Rogue's advances.
- Brett Maverick as played by James Garner in the 1950's series Maverick.
- Parodied in Ratchet & Clank 3, where Clank has the main role in a James Bondesque TV show called "Secret Agent Clank". The first scene we see of it is Clank in a tuxedo, playing in a casino while surrounded by a bunch of robotic babes. Not too surprising since he is the Chick Magnet of the series (despite being a 2 ft. tall robot...)
