"Yu-Gi-Oh! is a production of the Children's Television Workshop."
- The Alcoholic: Tristan's voice, apparently.
- Coming-of-Age Story: Joey supposedly gets one by finally winning a children's card game without any outside help.
- Hold Your Hippogriffs: Yami Bakura uses "What in Zorc's name is going on?!"
- Implausible Deniability: Tristan refuses to acknowledge his dramatic voice change.
- Malaproper: Rex repeatedly mishears "harpies" as "herpes".
- Ominous Latin Chanting: Bakura is introduced with this playing in the background.
- Voice Changeling: Tristan spontaneously switches voices in this episode, going from his original ridiculous one to something more mundane. Thankfully it's only temporary.
