[[WMG: Authors, and Websites]]

''[[ Snibbity Dibbity]]''
* Recommended by VeryMelon
* This author has written a Trilogy of NextGenFic, the first two starting the SpinOffspring of Yugi Motou participating in the Gx {{Canon}}, and the third(and still in progress) proper NextGenFic starting an original adventure. The second fic contains NSFW material.

[[WMG:[[GenFic General Fics]]]]
''Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.''

''[[ Call To The Dragons]]'' by Kaze-Kami-Ha
* Recommended by VeryMelon
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': OC fic. A new duelist in a new academy battles for one reason: to become the greatest dragon duelist ever! Of course, that's assuming he can deal with all the problems that come up...
* ''Comments'': One of the oldest fics I can remember reading fondly. The story takes place before GX's timeline and includes the original series characters in cameo roles, except for Serenity who's upgraded to a main character in this fic. All of the OCs, including main protagonist JB Jennings, are distinct and likable, with cool decks and somewhat cliche but enjoyable personalities. The duels are the focus, and the duels are great. The fic hasn't been updated since 2008 so it's pretty much dead, but I still want other tropers to read what I think is a good fanfic.

''[[ Tag Force: Learning to Duel]]'' by Hiyuusha
* Recommended by deathcaker123
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Based on the Tag Force games, it's a story that follows Red Hat "Konami" on his adventures through Duel Academy. It also has a completed 5D's counterpart.
* ''Comments'': It is not only a GX counterpart, it is also a sequel and considered alternate of the [[ 5D's route]]. The author never fails to amaze people with many unexpected twists. [[ A third part]] is underway.

''[[ Houseguest]]'' by [=SilvorMoon=]
* Recommended by ManCalledTrue, {{Heleentje}}, moberemk
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': ''Houseguest'' by [=SilvorMoon=] begins with Manjoume being ordered to come home for summer break by his brothers. Unable to refuse, he decides to keep them distracted... by bringing Fubuki.
* ''Comments'': HilarityEnsues (meant unironically).
** {{Heleentje}}: Wholeheartedly seconded. In fact, everything by [=SilvorMoon=] is pretty amazing.

''[[ Supreme King Jaden]]'' by [=SuperNeos2=]
* Recommended by NarutoUzumaki7
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': An Alternate Take on the first season of the anime. Jaden has a disabled twin brother in this story, knows about his past as Haou, and has Yubel with him right from the start.
* ''Comments'': This is a well-written story that shows just how different the story could've gone down had Jaden had a twin and known about a few little things prior to his first year at Duel Academy. It takes detours from the story of the anime and expands upon key events to enhance the flow. Lots of twists in this one that'll satisfy any fan of the anime and any reader. Well written and developed original characters, especially Jaden's twin, as well as interesting takes on existing characters. It has everything you could want in a story. Angst, drama, friendship, family, you name it. I highly recommend it. A spin-off and Season 2 are in the works as of now!

''[[ Chariot's Progress]]'' by [=SilvorMoon=]
* Recommended by {{RubberLotus}}, Tropers/{{Timber}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A retelling of the second season focusing on Misawa, and why he joined the Society of Light. Contains slight AU.
* ''Comments'': If you're angry over Misawa's DemotedToExtra treatment in the series, fear not. This fanfiction proves that there are people out there who care about him. This fic also provides insights on how the way that the Society gets its members is MoreThanMindControl, and no character is left flat. Note that there aren't a lot of duels, though.
** Tropers/{{Timber}}: Seconded. In this Troper's opinion, it told the Society of Light arc better than the canon did, and in a way that made much more sense.

''[[ Year One, The Trial of Shadows]]'' by [=cypsiman2=]
* Recommended by {{HeroSlayer}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': An Alternate Universe fanfic that is based more on the manga. A more serious look at the first year at Duel Academy, with more competent villains and a darker plot.
* ''Comments'': You've probably seen several of these, but this it's well written. Features loads of original characters that are three dimensional. A much darker look at the GX Duel Academy swamped with threats that will end the world.
** {{Troublethecat}}: For one thing the fic [[GenderFlip Gender Swaps]] Kaiser Ryo, Samejima and Hayato simply because the [[AffirmativeActionGirl author doesn't think there's enough important female characters in the cast]], but also turns ThoseTwoGirls Junko and Momoe into more important characters for the same reason. Also [[spoiler:The Author replaces the Seven Stars with [[Franchise/DotHack the Eight Phases of the Cursed Wave]], and then has [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot the audacity to have The Epitaph of Twilight be a real poem in the setting without The World also existing in the story]], thus making the whole thing all the more ridiculous and out of place.]] Not to mention [[spoiler:[[StayInTheKitchen the Subject]] of the HannibalLecture Kaiser Ryoko is given to convince her to give in to her dark side.]] Ugh. And then there's what the Author did to [[spoiler:Daitokuji, turning him into [[RonTheDeathEater an unrepentant cackling villain]] before promptly killing him off.]] Also, Asuka, who goes from being competent to rapidly approaching BlackHoleSue territory in the Sequel [[spoiler:by way of avoiding being brainwashed by Saio despite losing to him in a duel, AND being seen as more of a threat to his plans than Judai is for some reason.]] I could go on even further than this, but I should really stop here. A lot of things about this series just grinds my nerves, but it's well written enough that I'm sure plenty people will like it anyway and it's at least worth taking a look at.
** {{LilyNadesico2}}: I, on the other hand, recommend this. It's well written, the characters are actually well developed, and it avoids the wallbanger moments that destroyed the canon series in my book. Definitely worth a look.

''[[ So Far, So Good]]'' by Heleentje (there is death in this fic, and it can be violent)
* Recommended by {{Higuchimon}}, @/KaiserinKai, {{Ephemera}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': This is set post-canon and involves mainly Juudai, Johan, and Yubel, with appearances by other canon characters at various points as Juudai travels. The general plot involves a force known as Chaos and the search for the incarnation of Good Light, which could be much closer to Juudai than he thinks, in more ways than one.
* ''Comments'': This story has now been completed and is still absolutely wonderful. The original characters are well written and believable, a rarity in this fandom, and the plot is well thought out and even more well crafted. Be prepared to have your every heartstring tugged, even the ones you didn't know you had.

''[[ An Ode to Kaiser]]'' by WhiteLadyDragon
* Recommended by: The Otaku Ninja
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': This is poetry dedicated to Duel Academy's Kaiser...Zane Truesdale or Ryo Marufuji, whatever you wish to address him by. Criticism is allowed. Fourth part, addressing his Dragons and his brother.
* ''Comments'': Like it says above, this is a series of poems about Ryo Marufuji/Zane Truesdale that reads almost like an epic about his rise to power, his fall into darkness, and beyond. Very nicely done, and very emotional.

* ''Comments'': Jaden only gets to travel back in time to when one of the pictures were taken and thus only gets a short amount to try and change what happened in that particular picture. UPDATE: This story will be continued by SpicyMangoSlice at Fanfiction.Net []

[[WMG:Crossover Fics]]

''[[ Kamen Rider GX]]'' by [[ Fenikkusumaru]]
* Recommended by: StarlightAT
* ''Status'': Complete
* Crossover with: Franchise/KamenRider and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
* ''Synopsis'': Kamen Rider. They are masked heroes that protect mankind. Armed within the Deck, Kurogasa Kururugi ventures out to the prestigious Duel Academy as he sets on his journey to find his father and determine the path of his destiny. Henshin!
* ''Comments'': A very good read for those who want a Yu-Gi-Oh! and Kamen Rider Crossover. It starts off rather slow but it picks up speed and leaves you wanting more. Many OC involvement and many divergences from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! GX so it isn't a complete rewrite of the anime series with added characters. Season 2 is in the works.
* Now with a TV Tropes page!! [[ here]]

''[[ Assemble! Yu-Tagonists]]'' by [[ driftingstar]]
* Recommended by fsdfsdfsd, sarcasticnerd
* ''Status'': Complete

* ''Status'': Ongoing
* Crossover with: VideoGame/FateExtra and Anime/YuGiOhGX
* ''Synopsis'': At the end of at the end of the Moon Cell Grail War Hakuno is being deleted by Moon Cell when Gilgamesh appears and takes them to a planet Light years away. They end up in Kaiba's digital world where Gilgamesh learning of the ''King's'' card game creates a body for Hakuno within it and a deck compromising of Heroic Spirits for Hakuno before hacking the system of Duel Academy and having the former NPC enrolled. Starts off as light hearted but the theme slowly gets darker as the story progresses, Jaden is still and idiot though.
