to:

* Yami and Kaiba often disregard the game's rules- well, [[{{Reincarnation}} they've]] played it long before it was a game, back when it was a significantly more lawless and bloody method of battling with spirits...



-->'''Pharaoh:''' So Kaiba, are you ready to enter a world of pain?
-->'''Kaiba:''' Sounds delightful.

Sounds delightful.


**** The second point is {{Jossed}} in light of season 4, which still uses the dub footage. Plus the last few episodes of season 2 use footage from the Japanese version. More likely, itís RealLifeWritesThePlot determining what footage is used based on ease of access.



** Téa, a self-described shipper, is the one shown giving Marik's Millennium Item to Florence.

Added DiffLines:

** Jossed in regards to Mai. She just got TheOtherDarrin treatment.

Added DiffLines:

** Though Yami also does seem to have wanted to push Yugi toward Rebecca Hawkins when she reappeared in Season 5. And declared it a "damn shame" when Yugi said he wasn't interested in "hitting that"



to:

* In the episode when Mokuba thinks he's a Pokemon, the first one he pretends to be is Bulbasaur. The voice actress for Mokuba in the 4kids dub has also voiced several Pokemon for them, including Bulbasaur.


** Also, originally the network cut some plot important episodes to get the dub of 5D ready on time, due to it they really don't know what the hell is he doing in venice.

to:

* Shadi warns the protagonists about the perils of fourth wall breaking... long after it's been broken. He was also late to warn Ishizu and Marik about their father.



to:

* Yami didn't pick up on Pegasus's CampGay [[spoiler:actually CampStraight]] mannerisms and refers to him as super manly, because he's from ancient Egypt. The standards for what's considered manly changed a lot over the centuries.


* Noah's {{Leitmotif}} towards the end of the series is ''Mad World''--specifically, the remix used in ''DonnieDarko'' (the song, FYI, was originally by ''Music/TearsForFears''). A viewer might dismiss it as [[StandardSnippet just a stock "sad song"]]... until they remember the lyrics. The song's bemused narrator reflects on how he can't connect with other people or find meaning in the world around himself, and mentions that his favorite dreams are the ones in which he dies. ''Noah is trapped in a fake world full of fake things and people because he's an AI. Nothing he can do here makes any difference.'' These things gave rise to his LackOfEmpathy. His story ends with a [[DeconstructedTrope debatably]] HeroicSacrifice. ...[[TearJerker ouch]].

* By Season 3 everyone seems to reference the real world a lot (even for the show standards). In other words they're BreakingTheFourthWall. The same Fourth Wall that collapsed during the Season 2 Finale.

to:

* Probably the most important case is the fourth wall, in appearance YGOTAS seems to not have a fourth wall, due to the sheer amount of references and random humor, but then you realize that the fourth wall of YGOTAS never gets closed as tapped but the Anime/YuGiOh series fourth wall, so when Shadi mentions that the great wall protection has been a great success, he's not wrong, only him, Ishizu (With her millennium necklace which explicitly gives her the ability to do so) and Melvin (A mercenary hired by 4kids to end YGOTAS) know about the fourth wall of YGOTAS itself.

** Season 3 and onward began using footage from the original Japanese anime rather than the English dub. Considering that the majority of the Virtual World arc took place inside the base of 4Kids and that it ended with the base getting destroyed while the gang managed to escape, it all makes sense. No 4Kids means ''no censorship''.
*** Although 4Kids doesn't get destroyed until midway through the season, it still makes sense given that the gang were trapped inside the company that ''uses'' the original Japanese version.

* Why ''did'' Weevil throw away the Exodia cards instead of keeping them for himself? Because stealing from a guy whose friends are bigger and stronger than you are is pretty pointless. Joey and Tristan would have got Yugi's Exodia cards back before the sun could rise (y'know, in a few hours).

** A recent livestream of Marik Plays Overwatch included a casual comment from Marik that even as obsessed as Bakura is with revenge, he's still certain that [[spoiler: Bakura would never think that defeating the pharaoh would be something worth dying over, and that he himself wouldn't get any joy out of the pharaoh's defeat unless Bakura was alive to celebrate the victory with him]]. [[ForegoneConclusion Oh no]].

* At first, it doesn't make sense that Zorc is such a ManChild since he's Yugioh's GodOfEvil. [[spoiler: But anyone whose completed the series knows that the CardCarryingVillain Florence is essentially Zorc's mind. So Zorc's kindness is understandable: He's naturally kind and simple without his mind.]]

* In episode 65, Dark Magician Girl explains that duel monsters live in a world that has a symbiosis relationship with the human world. This explains why several monsters like Celtic Guardian, Kuriboh, and Flame Swordsman[=/=]Frank are capable of talking and interacting with humans in past episodes, they're all inhabitants of that world being summoned during a duel.

* Rex explains in Episode 73 that the Power of Orichalcos allows you to {{Retcon}} your past, as its how he and Weevil stopped being WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead [[{{Expy}} Expies]]. This would also explain how Mai [[TheOtherDarrin got a actual female voice actress]] earlier in the season, and why Dartz and the other motorcycle-riding henchmen changed personalities and quirks (and voice, in Dartz's case).

** Plus he not only an insect theme that would clash with egyption ComicBooks/Hulk, but [[AwesomeButImpractical the cards are hard to use in a regular deck with you needing all five at once to instantly win]] and Weevil's deck probably couldn't be modified properly to use them well.
