** A BiggerBad villain [[ManBehindTheMan who is responsible for every other bad guy in the series/current arc]], [[OrcusOnHisThrone only shows himself at the very end]] (optional for arc villains), [[GreaterScopeVillain has wide-ranging plans for world domination or something similar]], and if not an EldritchAbomination then at least has [[LovecraftianSuperpower Lovecraftian Superpowers]]. He/it will be [[FinalBoss one of the final duelists to defeat,]] with any duels coming after his battle being more focused on the personal relationships between the main characters to tie up lose story and character bits before the series ends.
** A villain who is presented as [[KickTheDog genuinely sadistic]], powerful, and [[ManipulativeBastard dangerously deceptive.]] Often prone to EvilIsSexy (at least according to the fans), but is usually either TheDragon to the BiggerBad or his/its pawn. This is the person who the audience sees playing the game for most of the arc/series, and if the BiggerBad is somehow incapable of dueling directly, will take the role of the "final opponent to save the world." Sometimes will pull a HeelFaceTurn against all odds, especially [[TheDogBitesBack if this villain betrayed him]] and/or if he took the time to befriend the main character, although expect RedemptionEqualsDeath if so.

* OddlyNamedSequel: ''GX'', ''[=5D's=]'', ''ZEXAL''. While the names are odd, they have meaning inside each series. The GX was for "Generation Next", ''[=5D's=]'' for the Five Signer Dragons, and ''ZEXAL'' is the SuperMode the hero receives. ''ARC-V'' comes from the [[spoiler:machine that Leo Akaba intends to fuse the dimensions with and Zarc, the [[AntagonistTitle titular]] [[BigBad main antagonist]] of that series]].

** Akiza from ''5D's'' is easily the sexiest major female protagonist. While she herself was never flirtatious or seductive, her large bust, exposed clevage, short skirt and leggings with straps were all censored or altered in the dub.

* GodlikeGamer:
** Yugi Muto, or rather his SuperPoweredEvilSide Dark Yugi, is possibly the TropeCodifier for the anime community. Yugi is dubbed the "King of Games" and has the reputation for being an expert in all forms of games. It's played far more straight in the [[Manga/YuGiOh manga continuity]] and the [[Anime/YuGiOhFirstAnimeSeries first anime series]] where he would play in all types of games from board games to card games. However, all subsequent anime-only series have him only focusing on the Duel Monsters card game. Though he still qualifies for this, where to date he has only lost twice, with one of them due to timeout and the other time being ''against himself''. His amazing success combines both exceptional strategic thinking along with [[WindsOfDestinyChange luck manipulation]].
** Seto Kaiba is a ChildProdigy and already a genius at everything. So it's no surprise that when he invested his talents into gaming he became one of the greatest duelists in history, second only to Yugi. The two of them end up as [[TheRival rivals]] and {{Worthy Opponent}}s. A battle between him and Yugi will be long and drawn out and can go either way as the two duelists run rings around each other.


* ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'': Second anime spin-off, starring Yusei Fudo and Riding Duels (Turbo Duels in the dub). It introduces Synchro Summoning, which becomes the main focus of the duels.
