* GenerationXerox: Hand in hand with the {{Expy}} trope above, since the story deals with the children (or apprentices) of the canon series' characters and how they deal with each other. For example, Yugo Muto and Seta Kaiba are expert duelists like their fathers Yugi and Seto; Jenna Wheeler is hot-blooded like her father Joey; Kyo Bakura is methodical like his father Ryou; and Miki Taylor is gentle-spirited like her mother Serenity. Non-family examples include Marcus Ironside, who is "Bandit" Keith Howard's military subordinate, likewise uses Machine-type monsters as his mentor did and is also a major-grade JerkAss (though he later becomes a JerkWithAHeartOfGold), and Wade Ocean utilizes water-themed monsters and is cheerful and jovial but also lost a loved one in his back-story, just as his teacher Mako Tsunami did. A prominent exception is Flora Green, who utilizes Insect-type and Plant-type monsters like her mentor Weevil Underwood, but unlike him she is pleasant and polite ([[CaptainObvious and a girl]]).

** NEVER make Kyo take his glasses off. Just don't. If you do and don't end up in a body bag... You'll wish you had.


* ComedicSociopathy: During Dueltropolis, David tries to distract Malachi to give Luke and Miriam, who are making out close by in a cave, enough time to get themselves in order. Unfortunately, [[BigBrotherInstinct Malachi]] is GenreSavvy enough to know something’s being covered up, and goes into the cave...and HilarityEnsues (including him throwing a rock at Luke, who manages to duck before it can hit his head).

* DuelsDecideEverything: From the most mundane things such as who in a competition is going to win the monetary prize and rare cards at the end, to much more serious things like the fate of the world--all par for the course ever since the original series, of course.

* {{Expy}}: Several of the originally-created characters in this series have physical descriptions that are [[ShoutOut shout-outs]] to characters from the canon series or even from other series altogether. Quick examples include Janus Yuki, the son of [[Anime/YuGiOhGX Jaden Yuki]], having his father's hairstyle but being blond, while Raven Pegasus is basically a black-haired [[{{Trigun}} Knives]].

* BottomlessMagazines: For the most part, duelists’ decks never seem to run out of cards. The trope is subverted in one case, however: during Yugo and James’ duel, it's highlighted that for James's Exodia strategy to work, he has to have the minimum number of cards (40) in his deck at any one time, to increase the chances of getting the requisite cards when he needs them. [[hottip: *:For those not in the know, an Exodia strategy revolves around five cards--Exodia the Forbidden One, Right Arm of the Forbidden One, Right Leg of the Forbidden One, Left Arm of the Forbidden One, and Left Leg of the Forbidden One. While the four limbs are Normal Monster cards, Exodia the Forbidden One is an Effect Monster whose effect states that when the player has all five cards in their hand, that player automatically wins the duel. This was the original use for the Exodia cards before the advent of other Exodia-centric cards to diversify the strategy, such as the Exodia Necross card.]]

* AnimeHair: Given that this is a ''Yu-Gi-Oh'' fic, it's not very surprising that most of the characters will have some rather outlandish hairstyles. Just for a few examples, both Yugo and Malachi are blond, but have hairstyles similar to Yugi and Marik respectively (justified in Yugo's case because Yugi's his father); meanwhile, Wade's got sea-green hair and Marcus is a WhiteHairedPrettyBoy. Arguably the most crazy-haired person in the whole cast would be Odachi, whose hair is a black-and-white copy of Yugi's style.

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Many of the characters have realistic hair colors, thereby averting this trope. Others play it straight, such as Marcus, [[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy whose hair is silver despite him being 19 years old]], and Jan Shimizu, whose hair is aqua-colored and isn't said to be dyed. Subverted with Seta, Wade, Michael Bronte, and ''Eternal's'' Diane Chill, whose hair colors (blue, green, purple, and light blue, respectively) ''are'' actually dyed, and stated as such in their introductory biographies.
