* AcceptableTargets / AcceptableLifestyleTargets: Mainly Duke, because he's the very wealthy villain, but everyone is made fun of.

* WTHCastingAgency: ''Yu-Gi-Oh'' characters in ''Moulin Rouge'' is probably the last thing any sane person would think to write. It's made a little better by the fact that the fic mostly uses the abridged series characterization (though, in the author notes, it says they tried to blend the dub and abridged personalities).

* WTHCastingAgency: ''Yu-Gi-Oh'' characters in ''Moulin Rouge'' is probably the last thing any sane person would think to write. It's made a little better by the fact that the author tried to adapt the roles to the characters' personalities and the fic mostly uses the abridged series characterization (though, in the author notes, it says they tried to blend the dub and abridged personalities).


* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Kaiba has many fans in the original, the Abridged, and fanon-based fandom. The characters in this fic, however, seem to be barely tolerating him (nobody defends him when Tristan slams him into the floor or when Duke starts on him, and they all make fun of him for his second job). Maybe the author just hates him.

Tristan stood aside and let Yugi in, purely out of shock. Yugi's cowboy boots on the wood floor snapped Tristan out of his stupor."

Added DiffLines:

* AcceptableTargets / AcceptableLifestyleTargets: Mainly Duke, because he's the very wealthy villain, but everyone is made fun of.
* DracoInLeatherPants: The depiction of Bandit Keith in Chapter Nine is this, specifically the fact that he appears to care about something (and a very unlikely character) other than drinking, gambling, and America.
* FashionVictimVillain: Duke pops his collar and wears a trucker hat tilted at the "angle of optimum irony." Later, he contemplates wearing a sheer top with sparkles to a meeting.
* FridgeLogic: Joey is the only one who [[spoiler: gets tuberculosis]], despite being in close contact with several other people, one of whom he ''shares a drink with''. Never mind the fact that this story (judging by the music used and technology) takes place in 2010-2011 and medicine is a lot more advanced than it was in late 19th century France.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment and HarsherInHindsight: After the end of Chapter Five, any jokes about Kaiba's second job are kind of painful.
* RonTheDeathEater: While not a hero, Duke Devlin is (usually) on Yugi's side. The story puts him not only against Yugi and friends, but against a whole political system based on a game with which canon-Duke has no problem. It's pretty clear his name is the only reason he's the villain.
* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Kaiba has many fans in the original, the Abridged, and fanon-based fandom. The characters in this fic, however, seem to be barely tolerating him (nobody defends him when Tristan slams him into the floor or when Duke starts on him, and they all make fun of him for his second job). Maybe the author just hates him.
* WTHCostumingDepartment: Quite a few outfits.
** From the first chapter:
-->"Tristan left his chair and went to inspect. On his couch was a skinny man of average height with black, red, and blond hair spiked up with blond tendrils hanging over his face. His blue tank top was speckled with debris from the ceiling and his red kilt had flown up in the fall, revealing his pyramid-patterned underwear. Being unconscious, the guy didn't seem to care much."
-->"A shorter, more doe-eyed version of this Yami stood at the door. He looked even more outlandish than the other one; he wore a green toga with a hoop skirt underneath. Tristan stood aside and let Yugi in, purely out of shock. Yugi's cowboy boots on the wood floor snapped Tristan out of his stupor."
** From Chapter Eight (full of this, as well as "what the hell, set designer?")
-->"Everyone put on their new hologram-emitting chest badges, headbands, and fingerless gloves and took their positions. Rhinestone-covered stars hung from the rafters in front of glittery white pyramids. Joey lounged on a couch that had been spray-painted gold, wearing a blue leopard print tunic with a pink bobbed wig. With all the reflective objects and Joey's second skin of body glitter, the downstage area seemed to be bathed in light."
** Then later:
-->"Glittering sparks shot out of holographic badges behind the two birthday hats on Joey's pectorals. Rainbows streamed from the hologram emitters on the dancers' headbands as they pranced in a circle around the stage."
* WTHCastingAgency: ''Yu-Gi-Oh'' characters in ''Moulin Rouge'' is probably the last thing any sane person would think to write. It's made a little better by the fact that the fic mostly uses the abridged series characterization (though, in the author notes, it says they tried to blend the dub and abridged personalities).
** Joey as Satine, abridged or non-abridged, is particularly baffling.
