* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Raid Raptors -- Armatus Vulcan's design is stated to look quite different from the machine birds that comprise Shun's deck, especially since it is seemingly more organic than the others. [[spoiler:It's because Armatus Vulcan is meant to perform a Fusion Summoning.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** [[spoiler:Shun]] using Fusion Summoning catches the attention of Academia, as while the energy emitted by the summoning is lower than theirs, it's higher than what anybody in Standard should be capable of. As a result, Leo sends Berrett to investigate, with Serena sneaking along for the ride. It also leads to her encountering Yuzu slightly earlier in canon.

** After the Tag Duel with Yuya and Zarc, Reiji discovers the location of Shun and Yuto and confronts them, accepting a duel from Shun in order to prove he can be trusted while asking for their help in preparing Standard for the coming war. Due to Yuto's investigation, and the results of the duel, Shun accepts.


** In ''Scale 09'', when Ray unveils her En archtype, Zarc asks Yuya if he's heard of it before. Yuya doesn't know anything about it, believes that it wasn't released to the public because of its effects, even outright mentioning the Toon archtype used by Duel Monsters creator Pegasus.
** ''Scale 10'' has Reiji bring up the Rare Hunters from the original ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' series, even specifically mentioning an incident where a Rare Hunter dueled using the Exodia archtype and made illegal copies, as well as mark his cards so he would know what card he was drawing. In the Battle City arc, Joey was defeated by one such Rare Hunter, and was later exposed and defeated by Yugi in the following episode.

* GoodCounterpart: The Four Dimensional Dragons are this to their darker, more malevolent SKSD counterparts. Special mentions go to [[spoiler:Entermate King Odd-Eyes Dragon]], which is stated to be the good counterpart to Odd-Eyes Raging Dragon.



** In ''Scale 09'', when Ray unveils her En archtype, Zarc asks Yuya if he's heard of it before. Yuya doesn't know anything about it, believes that it is like the Toon archtype in the early days of Duel Monsters where it was never released to the public until later when there were more powerful cards released.
** ''Scale 10'' has Reiji bring up the Rare Hunters from the original ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' series, even specifically the first Rare Hunter that was introduced during the Battle City Tournament arc that defeated Joey with illegal copies of Exodia before being exposed and defeated by Yugi sometime later.

Added DiffLines:

* OtherMeAnnoysMe: The Dimensional Dragons and their SKSD counterparts, if Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and SKSD Odd-Eyes are of any indication, ''do not like each other''. '''''At all'''''. This is most likely because of what the SKSD dragons represent, being "shadows" of Supreme King Z-ARC.
* PlayingWithFire: Raid Raptors -- Armatus Vulcan, Shun's [[spoiler:Fusion]] monster, as befitting its name, has fire spewing from its body and attacks using a miniature sun.

** In the anime proper, Yuya was the only person to have Xyz-Pendulum, Synchro-Pendulum and Fusion-Pendulum monsters respectively. The fanfic has Reiji have an Xyz-Pendulum monster of his own in the form of D/D/D Admin Limbo.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the anime, Shun violently hunted down anyone from LDS and considered Reiji an enemy until proven otherwise. In the fanfic, thanks to Yuto learning that LDS is unconnected to Academia and stopping his assault early, as well as determining for himself what sort of person Reiji was in their duel, he's considerably more heroic and even joins LDS in order to help Standard prepare against Academia.



* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Zarc was portrayed as power hungry and vicious, who mindlessly destroyed everything in his path, in no major part due to the crowd wanting more vicious duels. Thanks to his amnesia, however, Zarc demonstrates a personality similar to Yuya's, especially in regards to Entertainment Dueling when he sees it first hand.

** In the anime, Reiji's actions were morally dubious until they were explained further. The fanfic drops the ambiguity of his actions and portrays him and Himika in a more positive light.



* PragmaticHero: Yuto rightfully points out that, eventually, Xyz Summoning will be countered by the Fusion Dimension so they should learn other Summoning Methods in order to gain the advantage. While initially hesitant, Shun [[spoiler:decides to learn Fusion Summoning in spite of his hatred towards it.]]



* RealityEnsues: Excluding Zarc, Yuzu, and Sora, one being an amnesiac with no money or identity to his name, another being the daughter of the school Principal, and the last basically being a freeloader, it's a wonder how You Show hasn't shut down already by the time LDS arrives. As Himika points out, there's no way that You Show can continue as it is with only four students paying to attend classes, and uses it as part of her advantage in her XanatosGambit.'

** Yuya, in ''Scale 07'', shows his new skills by unveiling Synchro Summoning a season ahead of schedule. He's also in the midst of learning about Xyz Summoning, but at present he only knows how to do Synchro. He also uses his new Synchro Monster, Odd-Eyes Skate Streamer, to defeat Hokuto.

[[spoiler:''Scale 10'' has it kicked up another notch by not only turning a copy of his father's ace card, Entermate Sky Magician, into a Pendulum monster, but also creating the first ever Ritual-Pendulum monster -- "Entermate King Odd-Eyes Dragon."]]



** The SKSD EvilCounterpart monsters of the Four Dimensional Dragons count, but ''Scale 10'' throws in another set: [[spoiler:the "original" versions of the Four Dimensional Dragons from before the Original Dimension was split into the four dimensions.]]



* ArchaicWeaponForAnAdvancedAge: InUniverse, literally. Before Himika and Reiji introduced Fusion, Synchro and Xyz Summoning the Standard Dimension only had Ritual Summoning to their name. It's since begun to decline, with Himika noting how rare Ritual Summoning is used in the present. Doubles as a MythologyGag, as in canon, only two characters were ever shown using Ritual Summoning, only one of which was from Standard. The Standard native Mieru Hochun, and the former Academia Student and Fusion native Asuka Tenjoin.

* CatchPhrase: Zarc's usual quip before he begins a major move is, "It's showtime!" He also has a more minor one, which is similar to Yuya's own: "The fun, has yet to begin!"

* ShoutOut: Yuzu's Ritual Monster, Requiem Diva of the Salieri Symphony, is obviously a shout-out to the historical character Antonio Salieri. A given, since there's a monster in her deck called Mozart. However, part of Requiem Diva's summoning also summons a ghostly orchestra that plays music upon its arrival, bringing to mind [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder the ghostly apparitions summoned by the musician himself as the Avenger-class Servant]].

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: Zarc was never even mentioned until near the end of Arc V's second to last story arc. He makes his first ever appearance in the first chapter, and sometime after Yuya defeats Strong Ishijima.

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: {{Downplayed}}. Kakimoto, one of Sawatari's three stooges, is chosen to participate in a Tag Duel in ''Scaoe 02'' with Sawatari, even possessing a Pyro deck. In the show proper, his name was only revealed in the credits and had no other role besides sucking up to Sawatari.


Added DiffLines:

* BorrowedCatchphrase: The preview for ''Scale 10'' has Yuya and Zarc apparently borrowing Dennis' CatchPhrase, presumably when they are going to defeat Ray and Reiji.
-->'''Yuya & Zarc''': SHOW MUST GO ON!


* DarkIsNotEvil: Zarc's "Supreme King" Deck is primarily composed of DARK Attribute Monsters, with the [[EvilCounterpart SKSD counterpart to the Dimensional Dragons being particularly terrifying]]. However, Zarc is nowhere near his mindset as the Demon Duelist.
