Manga
* Yuzu is Yuya's mom. [[note]]The BittersweetEnding of the manga concludes with Yuzu encountering a young Yusho Sakaki after Yuya promised that they'd meet again. This combined with Yugo, Yuto, and Yuri recognizing Yuzu earlier led to many people assuming that Yuzu was actually Yuya's mom (it's not definitively stated either way) and took off given their usual romantic pairing.[[/note]]


* Roget's VillainousBreakdown in episode 94 quickly caught off with the fandom, thanks to his Japanese VA's show-stopping performance and Roget's facial reactions to what's going on. In particular, his [[spoiler: "'''''[[SkywardScream SEEEEEEERRGEEEEEEEEEY!!!]]'''''"]] line quickly become one of the most memorable moments in the show so far, and is wildly regarded as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Roget's VA because of ''how high and enraged'' he managed to make it sound. Similarly, jokes about his VA needing a cough drop afterwards are common as well.

** You know that this has become a meme when one of the voice actors from WebVideo/FinalFantasyVIIMachinabridged defaults to it in one of the bloopers.[[note]]Admittedly it could also be coincidence...[[/note]]

** And then, [[HarsherInHindsight rather cringe inducingly ironically]], this has been replaced with "Will Yuzu get to do ''anything''?" Starting around the Synchro Dimension arc, where she either does things that have no impact on the plot at large or [[spoiler: gets repeatedly kidnapped by the respective {{Big Bad}}s of the arc]].

* It's traditional to refer to practitioners of different Summoning methods as "[x] scum", in reference to the FantasticRacism going on in the series. This is particularly common with Kurosaki or Sora.
* The "Berserk Mode" or "Berserker Mode" is an unofficial term created by fans to describe [[spoiler:the SuperpoweredEvilSide of Yuya and his {{Identical Stranger}}s]]. For a long time, everything known about the Berserk Mode was just fan theories and very little was confirmed about it. Now it's officially called "Awakening".
* Everyone in this series is colorblind![[note]]Despite the difference in their hair color and hair style, everyone except Reiji [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WN7xnv6S8AA and Allen]] often mistakes Yuya and Yuzu for their counterparts.[[/note]]
* XYZ MONSTERS DO NOT POSSESS LEVELS.[[note]]Used in times someone in the anime activates an effect against an Xyz monster relating to their level (Xyz monsters don't have levels, they have ranks) often followed by "then isn't their level 0?!" It's often used as a callback to the original reaction to Xyz monsters not possessing levels and the number of level-related cards that they rendered obsolete.[[/note]]
* Carded.[[note]]An abbreviation of saying "someone sealed into a card".[[/note]]
* Egao.[[note]]Japanese for "Smile" - used repeatedly over the course of the series, most notably as part of Yuto's FamousLastWords, [[MostAnnoyingSound which the creators won't let us forget]].[[/note]]
** Egao cult. [[labelnote:Explanation]]This meme is used to describe characters doing a HeelFaceTurn after witnessing Yuya's Entertainment Dueling. Critical viewers tend to use it sarcastically and treat it like a pandemy.[[/labelnote]]
** Eggo [[labelnote:Explanation]]A derogatory term in regards to the sheer overuse of 'Egao' in both terms and thematics. Often used by detractors of the series and the more [[StopHavingFunGuys Meta-oriented watchers]] who find 'spreading smiles through dueling' to be ridiculous.[[/labelnote]]
* "But you'll still take the damage!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Effectively the ''ARC-V'' version of the "Pot of Greed" meme, this line is shouted by the attacking player whenever the opponent uses a "negate destruction by battle" effect that doesn't negate battle damage, which is ''exceptionally'' often.[[/labelnote]]

** Before its official name was revealed, many people on certain parts of the internet had taken to calling Yuri's dragon as "Big Dick Fusion Dragon" thanks to a [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/File:Yuris_Dragon_Silhouette_Back.png certain angle of its silhouette in its debut episode]].
* Referring to Nico Smiley as Hitler or being a Nazi in some fashion, mostly for his design and apparent skeeviness contrasting oddly with his genial personality.

* The reveal of [[spoiler:Asuka]] joining the series caused some fans to use [[spoiler:her picture in her white uniform, since she was BrainwashedAndCrazy in season 2, fitting to the AxCrazy behaviour of Academia students]]. This became ironic, since it has turned out that [[spoiler:she is not an antagonist]].
* Similarly, the reveal of [[spoiler:Edo Phoenix]] caused fans to re-use the jokes with the letter D.
* The preview talks about a character all by him/herself, all by him/herself. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The preview descriptions for a ''lot'' of ARC-V episodes often have the phrase "'x characater' does 'y', all by him/herself." This even includes instances [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment where it would be redundant]], such as a character disappearing "all by him/herself", or a character being kidnapped, "all by him/herself." Naturally, most English speaking fans have started poking fun at this.[[/labelnote]]



* Yūgō jane! Yūgo da![[note]]Lit. translated as "It's not Fusion! It's Yugo!", a RunningGag where people will say Yugo's name wrong. Over time, fans start calling him "Fusion" and others react like this.[[/note]]

* Crossing over with ''Anime/DigimonUniverseApplimonsters''. Due to that show's protagonist looking like Yuya, tons of jokes sprung up about Yuya taking the dimension-hopping game into another franchise. The fact that ''Universe'' has added a pink-haired heroine with twintails, makes it even more obvious.
** Similarly, in the wake of [[spoiler:the infamous bait and switch concerning the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Pokemon XY&Z anime]] league]], the resulting salt it ended up generating in the Pokemon fandom has ''somehow'' gotten people comparing Alain and Yuya. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Yuya and Alain share the same voice actors and Alain's main motivation for entering the league was because [[spoiler:Team Flare promised to revive Mairin's Chespin]], and specifically mentioned he wanted to bring back Manon's "egao". (He didn't literally say "egao", but a different word for "smile".)[[/labelnote]]

** Related to the aforementioned meme above, some fans think that ''ARC-V'' is "a poor man's version of ''Anime/CardfightVanguard''".



** Related to the aforementioned BrokenBase ending above, some fans think that ''ARC-V'' is a poor man's version of ''Anime/CardfightVanguard'' and were expecting the writers being incompetent if an ''ARC-V'' movie happens.


** SCREW THIS! I'M WATCHING [X] INSTEAD! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Many fans feel that ''Anime/CardfightVanguard'' , ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', ''Series/KamenRiderAmazons'', and ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' did a good job at handling its respective stories and characters, citing that these are good examples of writing a DarkerAndEdgier series.[[/labelnote]]

** The introduction of Crow, in conjunction with his own MerchandiseDriven origins and the fact that he immediately (again) became a prominent character who can defeat just about anyone and rarely loses, led to the counter-call of "BUY BLACKWINGS!"
*** Crow's longterm association with shilling cards and habit of showing up right before periods considered SeasonalRot has led to him becoming associated with Konami, often in terms of him either being a fanboy defender or an agent of them.
