Rex Raptor and Weevil Underwood
- Rex: He said "wood".
Weevil: Oh, yeah. Heheheheheh.
A pair of professional duelists modelled after Beavis and Butthead. Snicker a lot at dirty words, and not much else.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Lampshaded by Rex in The Other Abridged Movie after Kaiba beats him in a card game.Rex: This sucks. I'm gonna go dye my hair.
- Captain Ersatz: Of Beavis And Butthead, respectively.
- As of Episode 73, the Seal of Orichalcos has retconned them into not being this, though this is re-retconned in 82, where they have their normal voices back.
- Catchphrase: "Come... to Raptor," for Rex.
- Closer to Earth: As his personality's based on Butt-Head, Rex is smarter than Weevil, but only on a relative comparison.
- The Ditz: Being based on Beavis, Weevil is the dumber one.
- Heh Heh, You Said "X": They're based on the champions of this trope, did you expect any less?Rex: You said 'region'!
- I Banged Your Mom:Weevil: I already rule. Heh heh, I rule, heh heh.
Rex: You don't rule, Weevil!
Weevil: I rule your mom last night.
Rex: Shut up, asshole, that was your mom and it was me doing the ruling, heh heh.
Weevil: DAMN IT REX!!
- This Is Gonna Suck: Weevil, upon realizing just how much damage the Pharaoh is about to do to him with Berserker Soul.Weevil: Heh heh. This sucks!
- Those Two Guys: Almost universally appear together to make jokes together.
- Token Evil Teammate: To the heroes in Season 4.
- Took a Level in Badass: In Episode 73 when they become more like their canon selves.
"Bandit" Keith Steve Howard
- "In America!"
A cheating duelist from America, who is proud to be from America and duels for American pride against fellow American Pegasus... in America!
- Anything but That!: The French national anthem terrifies Keith because France (according to him) is the exact opposite of American.
- Berserk Button: He completely loses it when Joey uses his Copycat card to steal his catchphrase and is hauled away by security.
"Mess with Michael Bay and you mess with America!"
- He also seems to get upset whenever somebody criticizes Michael Bay.
- Breakout Character: Thanks to Little Kuriboh's giving him a catchphrase, Bandit Keith's popularity exploded. This was lampshaded in the episode summary for one version of Episode 11, his debut episode: "once upon a time, no one wanted to cosplay as Bandit Keith. Then this episode happened."
- Catchphrase: He loves to talk about America. In America!
- Eagle Land: Except he's not actually American. He's actually Canadian.
- However, when he reappears in episode 50, he still seems to believe that he's American. Joey was the first to point out that he's a fraud, but Kieth claims that he doesn't know what Joey's talking about, and he says that while waving a small Canadian flag.
- Exact Words: Takes pride on being an American, he didn't exactly say where in America is he born in...
- Flag Bikini: When he appears on The Spoony Experiment, he defends that Tina Armstrong (from Tekken) is wearing one, and even says he's "wearing a very patriotic thong".
- Foreign Culture Fetish: He's Canadian, but he idolizes America to the point that he actually wants to be American.
- Karma Houdini: Outside of losing to Joey and being reduced to a mind-slave by Marik, he gets no punishment for his crimes during the Duelist Kingdom tournament.
- No True Scotsman: Apparently his opinion of Pegasus."Pegasus! I pledge allegiance to your death, you sorry excuse for an American!"
- Otaku: Of American culture, made even more funny that he's actually Canadiannote .
- Patriotic Fervor: Keith loves America, American things, and talking about America.
- This Cannot Be!: Says this after being beaten by a kid in a duel."This can't be happening... in America!"
- Verbal Tic: He has one... in America!
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Trope Namer, when he calls out Joey for not wearing a bandanna of the US flag. Later Keith wears one of the Canadian Flag
The Hair Guy (Kemo)
- "Attention duelists!"
A security guard for Pegasus and (formerly) Kaiba. Has an unspecified acquaintance known as the Mullet Guy, who may be his brother.
- Adaptational Name Change: Sort of. His name in the original Japanese anime is Saruwatari and Kemo in English dub. In abridged series, he's referred to simply as "The Hair Guy".
- Catchphrase: "Attention Duelists!", "My hair is..." usually follows or they're separate.
- Cool Shades: Always seen with his sunglasses.
- HeelFace Revolving Door: In The Other Abridged Movie Yugi questions why he's suddenly taking orders from Kaiba when he's supposed to be working for Pegasus. Even he does not seem to know.
- Improbable Hairstyle: It's apparently the source of his power (to defy gravity), but definitely the source of both the jokes used for him and his popularity.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: He claims that his hair is Tristan's father.
- Vocal Evolution: Compare how he sounds in episode 6 to how he sounds in episode 21.
Marik's henchmen (also known as Ghouls or Rare Hunters in the actual series). Steve the Rare Hunter (the Exodia guy), Steve Arcana, Steve the Mime, Steve Luna, and Steve Umbris. He also controlled Bandit Keith (whose middle name is Steve) and Joey and Téa (he tricked them into legally changing their names to Steve).
- Adaptational Nice Guy: They don't cheat in card games like their original counterparts did.
- Captain Ersatz: Steve Lumis and Steve Umbra are parodies of Ignignot and Err.
- Enemy Mime: Guess which Steve?
- Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: Steve Luna and Steve Umbris say that on the moon, being gay is completely ok as long it's woman on woman and they're invited to watch.
- Mooks: For Marik.
- Elite Mooks: Joey and Tea are technically this, being two of the main characters and all.
- One Steve Limit: Defied; they're all named Steve.
- Shout-Out: Steve the Rare Hunter's voice is reminiscent of a certain martian.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: We're never told what happened to them after the Battle City arc is over and Marik is defeated by Yugi.
- "Yes, master Marik."
Marik's older brother who tried to be a tombkeeper, but unfortunately his stepfather Hank was an extreme Jerkass.
- Anti-Villain: Much like in the canon, he's loyal to Marik as a brother and genuinely loves his family.
- Bald of Evil: Which Joey mocks repeatedly.
- Bruiser with a Soft Center: His entire shtick.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He loved his mother.
- Gentle Giant: Closest thing to a Scary Black Man the show has; literally worships the Gummi Bears, and summons the Easter Bunny in his duel with Joey.
- Manchild: He loves gummy bears and plays childish cards.
- Minion with an F in Evil: He's not only completely harmless but also a Manchild.
- Morality Chain: For Marik; without him, Melvin is able to roam free.
- Scary Black Man: Well, Egyptian, but looks the part. Subverted in his immature and comical he is.
- Shoot the Dog: He murdered his father's pet poisonous snake, Cornelius, because he bit and almost killed Marik.
- The Stoic: Humorously so, as Marik describes him as "bland and one-dimensional".
- Trademark Favorite Food: Gummy bears. He loves them so much, just hearing "gummy bears" is enough to wake him up from a coma.
- The Unfavorite: Depressingly enough, he's this both in-universe and out."Jeez, Even in my own flashbacks I'm a minor character."
- Vocal Dissonance: Has the same deep, gravelly voice as a baby.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Tries to please his father, which obviously doesn't work.
- Yes-Man: Lampshaded when Marik notes that all he seems to say is "Yes, Master Marik."
- "Would you like to purchase our baby? We no longer have any use for it."
A gang of circus freaks led by Espa Roba, their brother duels to support them.
- Adaptational Villainy: They all want to get rid of their youngest sibling, a stark contrast to their close family bond in the original series.
- Catchphrase: "Would you like this baby?" and "This X doesn't deserves a spot in/on my Y, but it might make a good coaster for my drink!"
- Circus Brat: They used to work in the circus. Including the baby.
- No Indoor Voice: They all shout all the time.
- Parental Abandonment: They have no visible parents. They also keep trying (and failing) to give their youngest sibling away.
- Phony Psychic: Espa Roba pretends to be psychic, but in actuality, his brothers tell Espa what card Joey is using via a headset and viewing their duel from a tall building with binoculars. Joey also immediately caught on since Mai already tried that trick before.
- Older Than He Looks: Espa Roba is 37 years old, despite looking not much older than Yugi. While Espa claims that this is because of a growth hormone condition, Yami theorizes it's because of the in-breeding.
- Strong Family Resemblance: They all look exactly the same (even the baby).
- "Oh, hey, son! How's it going? I was just busy whipping the only true friend you ever had! So, how was your day?"
Marik and Ishizu's father and Odion's stepfather. An abusive monster who likes to whip people and is very stupid, it's his terrible parenting skills that can be blamed for the Ishtars being a Big, Screwed-Up Family.
- Abusive Parent: Especially to Odion, who he whipped bloody for Marik's misbehavior. He also lets Marik play with a pet cobra.
- Acquired Poison Immunity: Hank claims that his poison immunity stemmed from his pet snake Cornelius biting him again and again. He even theorizes that this is why he's "messed up in the head".
- Aerith and Bob: Marik, Odion, and Ishizu, the children of Hank and Veronica Ishtar.
- Asshole Victim: No one was upset when Melvin stabbed him.Marik: I just murdered my father in cold blood. I need a moment to get over it. (beat) Okay, I'm over it.
- Beard of Evil: He's an abusive parent with a beard. Ironically, he claims that men with beards (like Jesus as an adult and Santa Claus) intimidate him.
- Bumbling Dad: If there's ever a time where he's not busy being an Abusive Parent, he's usually this. For example, he apparently bought Marik an Xbox and a Playstation, which would be awesome if A) he ever let Marik outside to buy games for them, or B) he'd stop pouring beer inside the consoles.
- Catchphrase: "Binky boy!"
- Fluffy the Terrible: He loved his poisonous pet snake, Cornelius.
- Funetik Aksent/What the Hell Is That Accent?: Sounds somewhat Italian-ish and
we don't know."It was a long taym agoe, een a galuxy FAR, FAR HAWAII "
- Hypocritical Humor:
- He claims he's "The finest human being in the world," then says he will fix Marik's misbehavior the way he fixes all other problems in his life; whip everyone in a 500-yard radius.
- During "An Ishtar Family Christmas", he claims to hate men with beards because they intimidate him even though he is a man with a beard.
- Jerkass: Of the highest caliber.
- Large Ham: Dear god he is, possibly where Marik got it from.
- Laughably Evil: He's so over the top that it's nearly impossible to take anything he does seriously.
- Named by the Adaptation: He didn't have a name in the original. Nether did Veronica for that matter.
- Obliviously Evil: Insists that he is the finest human being in the world and the greatest dad of all time. This isn't sharing a border with Insane Troll Logic so much as invading it.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He's rather full of himself for a guy who lives underground ignorant of the world.
- Soundtrack Dissonance: Keeps singing a (modified) version of "The Cat's in the Cradle" while Melvin stabs him to death.
- Skewed Priorities: Decides to hold his newborn baby son up to the moon (as some vaguely defined ritual they apparently do) rather than show any concern when his wife tells him she's dying. Also punishes Odion for killing his poisonous pet snake Cornelious, despite how it had just bitten his son Marik and almost killed him.
- Too Dumb to Live: Literally. His sole appearances are to establish Marik's Start of Darkness was killing him for being a terrible parent.
- Whip It Good: "I'm going to fix this like I fix every other problem in my life: by h-whipping everybody within a five-hundred-yard radius!"
Team 4Kids / The Big Five
A group of former Kaiba Corporation executives who were fooled by Seto into assisting him in taking over Gozaburo's position, only to get screwed by his newfound money. They begrudgingly served him until Pegasus attempted making a deal with them that would give them back their prominent positions. They failed. Afterward, they tried to trap Kaiba in cyberspace. They failed. To add insult to injury, they ended up trapped in their own little world until Noah stumbled upon them and offered them new positions at 4Kids. They eagerly accepted and now an opportunity has arisen in which they will have their Roaring Rampage of Revenge.
- Affectionate Parody: Of 4Kids Entertainment and Team Four Star; the latter cast members voice them.
- Amoral Attorney: Johnson is the head of the 4Kids legal department, and the one responsible for repeatedly pulling Abridged Series videos from YouTube.
- Badass Creed: During their proper introduction.
- Cruel and Unusual Death:
- Noah asks for suggestions on what to do with the cast of the series once it gets canceled. Their suggestions? "Death by drowning!" "Death by robot!" "Death by justice!" "Death by bad publicity!" "Death by penguins!"
- Lecter actually appears, where it is revealed his job is localization, and his deck master Jinzo can destroy internet memes. Given the series' reliance on Shout Outs, this is actually more effective than it seems.
- Dirty Old Man: Crump. He lusts over Téa during their duel, and is shown in episode 63 masturbating to Pingu.
- Eagle Land: Lector is of the "America the Boorish" variety.Leichter: It's called localization, Mr. Kaiba. Because I do declare, there's only one country that matters when it comes to translatin' stuff. And that's Americanlanyvania... I mean America.
- Even Evil Has Standards: The other four of the Big Five admit that they don't want Téa's body due to not wanting "Crump's sloppy seconds. Not even Crump".
- Everything's Better with Penguins: Subverted with Crump. His obsession with penguins just creeps everyone out.
- Fate Worse than Death: Each member is sent to the darkest, most vile parts of the internet. In some cases it's subverted, though.
- Gansley gets sent to Megaupload, where he's all alone since the site has been taken down by the FBI.
- Johnson gets sent to The Dangerous Box.
- Nesbitt winds up on ChatRoulette, where he has an encounter with Naruto. He claims he's a robot when he's seen using his human form.
- Leichter ends up on Fanfiction.net. Let's just say he gets royally Mind Screwed.
- The only one who seems genuinely happy about his fate is Crump, because he gets sent to 4chan and spams the board with penguins. The sudden cutoff, however, implies that he gets banned.
- In the flashback during Episode 63, Noah instead banishes them all to Tumblr. Again, Crump is the only one who likes it.
- Grand Theft Me: Like the show, Nesbitt succeeds in stealing Tristan's body. Unlike the show, Crump takes over Téa's body and remains in it for a few episodes before Marik kicks him out.
- Greater-Scope Villain: Johnson, in a sense. He reveals he's the one that's repeatedly banned the series from YouTube, but Johnson isn't the main antagonist of the arc.
- Logic Bomb: Invoked with Nesbitt due to him being a robot. When asking "the chicken or the egg" question doesn't work, Duke resorts to showing him the design◊ for Yuma.
- Merchandise-Driven: Parodied with Nesbitt, who is head of merchandising. He intends to turn Tristan, Duke, and Serenity, into Totally Radical characters with lots of accessories that will appeal to kids better.
- Phrase Catcher: Nesbitt. After a Rocket-powered fist!, it's obligatory to say "I stand corrected".
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: For their Badass Creed, they recite a variation of the original Team Rocket motto.
- Robosexual: Nesbitt."There's nothing sexier than a giant robot with rocket-powered fists!"
- Rocket Punch: Nesbitt loves this trope.Serenity: "Okay Nesbitt, which came first: the chicken, or the egg?"
Nesbitt: "The rocket-powered fist!"
Serenity: "But that wasn't one of the opti—OWWWWWW!"
- The Other Darrin: Lampshaded. GanXingba voiced Gansley in his short scene at the end of Season 2, but hbi2k took over the role for Season 3. Then in a clip show at the end of the season, GanXingba returns as him to note the trope.
- Would Hurt a Child: Nesbitt has no problem with physically assaulting Mokuba and knocking him unconscious. Granted, while possessing a teen's body, but still.
Alister, Raphael, and Valon
Dartz's three henchmen who love riding on their motorcycles. They are extremely disturbed by his accent distorting his plans to have sexual implications.
- Adaptational Heroism: They often show reluctance with whatever order Dartz gives them, mainly because it either horrifies or grosses them out, and are a lot less antagonistic to the heroes here than in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime (except Alister, who still hates Kaiba the same).
- Adaptational Wimp: Played with, as their track record so far is about the same, but they're not as imposing here as they are in the original dub.
- Amazon Chaser: Played with. Raphael assumes that Valon loves Mai because of her being wild and determined. Valon agrees, then admits it's more because she has a nice bum.
- Ambiguously Bi: Valon shows up before Joey and Tristan and comments that he's "got a date with the attractive blonde". He's not talking about Mai.
- Badass Bikers: Though Yugi, Joey, and Tristan don't think so.
- Bigger Is Better in Bed: Alister, in the Kami-Con 2011 trailer, when he takes Dartz's orders to have Marianne Miller sign his dick to its logical conclusion.Marianne Miller: How do you even hide that?! Where do you put it?! I-I'm not even angry, anymore. I'm impressed, actually.
- Black and White Insanity: Raphael is revealed to have this in episode 71 where he believes that the ability to do evil means you are automatically evil.
- Cerebus Retcon: Raphael saying nothing but "ZUG-ZUG" in his early appearances was due to him having forgotten how to speak English during his time stranded alone on a desert island. And Alister's voice is the result of being injured in an explosion.
- Characterization Marches On: Raphael started as a generic henchman whose only line was "Zugzug." Later installments of Evil Council turned him into a Deadpan Snarker.
- Valon initially used stereotypical "Australian words" until Rapahel told him he's supposed to have a Cockney accent. From that point he slowly began to shift more and more towards using Cockney lingo.
- Contrived Coincidence: Basically how their (failed) plan to kill Yugi and his friends in California came down to. They hire a limo driver to drive a bunch of kids in a dessert to which a gang of bikers just randomly show up to kill them.Valon: Oi, Raf. Why does our plan make absolutely no sense?
Valon: Oh yeah.
- Creepy Monotone: Raphael's voice rarely ever raises above a dull monotone, which incidentally has the side effect of making it difficult to read when he's being sarcastic and when he isn't. The one time it does go higher, its when the plot of the season gets so contrived he enters Sanity Slippage.
- Dark and Troubled Past: All three of them.
- Alister's involved two foreign countries going to war with his brother dying in the crossfire, and his voice stuck in a permanent soprano after his testicles were forced back inside his body from a tank explosion. He proceeded to blame the first person he saw, Gozoboro Kaiba, the one who was supplying weaponry to both sides of the conflict.
- Raphael lost his family in a freak tsunami and was stranded on an island for several years, losing the ability to say nothing but "zug-zug". He thus decided that humanity deserved to die due to having the potential to be evil.
- Valon gave up on trying not to be an "evil little shithead" at a young age after he witnessed Goro Majima burning down a random nun's church. Unlike the others, however, he doesn't consider humanity to be evil because of this—it's just that he really hates people. Joey admits this is actually quite a reasonable motivation compared to the other henchmen.
- Darker and Edgier: Yami considers Raphael to be the edge-lord version of Mako Tsunami.
- Deadpan Snarker: Raphael after his Characterization Marches On.Raphael: Are [the new members] gonna be lamer than the last one?
Zombie Boy: I'm right here.
Raphael: Sup', lame-o?
- Alister, surprisingly enough, gets a few moments of being this when he's impersonating Pegasus.
- The Dragon: Raphael, the leader of the motorcycle riding henchmen and Dart'z right-hand.
- Elite Mooks: The three of them (and Mai) are likely to this to the biker henchmen used to kidnap professor Hawkins and try to kill the main characters.
- Evil Brit: Raphael notes Valon is supposed to be Cockney but he speaks, acts, and thinks like he is an Australian.
- For the Evulz: Unlike Alister, who specifically hates Kaiba for his father's crimes, and Raphael, who believes all humanity is evil just because he lost his family to a freak tidal wave, Valon helps Dartz wipe out humanity simply because he hates people.
- Freudian Excuse: Defied by Valon. He doesn't work for Dartz because of some tragic past, he just really hates people. Joey considers this the most sensible motivation in the series.
- Freudian Slip: Raphael keeps calling Guardian Eatos "mommy" and try to correct himself immediately after.
- Graceful Loser: After Joey inexplicably becomes the most badass duelist in the entire series to beat him, Valon admits that Joey is more worthy of Mai than he is.
- Groin Attack: Alister suffered an explosion that caused his testicles to retreat back to his body when he was kid, which is where he gained that high-pitched voice of his.
- Halfhearted Henchman: They help Dartz but find him really weird.
- Hypocrite: Rafael. After calling Yugi evil for sacrificing his monsters and using the Seal of Orichalcos once in Episode 71, he used the Seal himself and later sacrifice his monsters to empower Guardian Dreadscythe in Episode 80. Yugi was not amused by this and calls him out on it.Yugi: "Because I didn't realize that Orichalcos was Latin for giant f*cking hypocrite."
- Hypocritical Humor: Alister thinks Pegasus has a silly voice. Then again, he can't exactly stop speaking in a high-pitched squeak
- Informed Flaw: Alister alledgedly suffered a Groin Attack that left him with a high-speeched voice due to his testicles being unable to drop, yet he is perfectly able to mimic Pegasus' much deeper voice while posing as him. Then again, he personally seems to think that voice is even more ridiculous.
- Just Following Orders: Or at least what they assume are Dartz' orders.
- Knight of Cerebus: Raphael may have flimsy motives, but the fact that he could beat Yami shows just how serious he is. Yami even describes him as a "total edgelord".
- Knight Templar: Raphael believes that just having the potential to be evil is as bad as being evil, which is his motives for hating Yami.
- Land Down Under: Valon is Australian, though his anime voice actor meant to give him a cockney accent.
- Manly Tears: Raphael when Yami mocks his dead family.
- Misanthrope Supreme: Valon's motivation. Sadly, it's probably the most logical motivation among all of Dartz's henchmen.
- Misplaced Retribution: Parodied with Alister; after a war devastated his country and caused the death of his brother, he initially tried to swear revenge against the country responsible. However, since both said country and his own were an in-universe case of No Name Given, he was unable to figure out which country it was, and decided to instead direct his hatred toward the first person he saw as vaguely associated to the conflict, namely Gozaburo Kaiba. And since Gozaburo died by the time he showed up, he decided to redirect it toward Seto, despite the fact Seto had nothing to do with this whole thing and in fact ended Kaiba Corps' weapon trade.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Raphael plays Duel Monsters properly, announcing his moves as he makes them. Contrast to everyone else, whose duels consist of standing around talking, internet references, and Yami winning at the end.
- Not So Harmless: Yugi and his friends originally consider them to be "lame," only for Raphael to defeat Yami several episodes later. Likewise, Valon is incredibly violent during his duels while Alister manages to really get under Kaiba's skin while he's disguised as Pegasus and arranges for the plane they're dueling on to crash in case he should happen to win their rematch.
- Only Sane Man: Inverted. They all are this to their boss. Especially Raphael.
- Pokémon Speak: Raphael, who said nothing but "ZUG ZUG" in the first two Evil Council videos. Episode 71 reveals that this was a side effect of being stranded on that island for years.
- Suddenly Voiced: After that he normally speaks in a slow and droning fashion. Dartz lampshades this in the fourth Evil Council video."Mayan, I liked you bettah when you said "zoog zoog". Ya weren't such a little bitch!"
- Yami also mocks him for this, saying that he'd be better off continuing to say nothing but "ZUGZUG".
- Surrounded by Idiots: Raphael knows this all too well, which is why he does the monologuing.
- Villain Teleportation: Via their Orichalcos stones, which creates Fridge Logic of why they even need vehicles to travel when they can simply warp to anywhere they want.
- Worthy Opponent: Subverted. Yami considers Raphael "worthy" in the sense that he'd never insult him face-to-face again for fear of getting defeated a second time.
- "Look man, I'm just an episodic villain; they didn't give me a name."
Another member of Dartz's organization who duels Yami in the premiere of Season 4. He's just a throwaway Villain of the Week, so he has no proper name, but Yami names him "Bro." Something he does not approve of.
- As You Know: Despite Yami lampshading that he's a world champion duelist who knows Duel Monsters very well, Bro feels the need to explain what his cards do.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Courtesy of his guest-star voice actor, he has a very deep and booming voice as far as most voices in the show go.
- Flat Character: Mercilessly mocked; he has no depth, personality, backstory, or even a proper name. He's just there to be Yami's opponent. Ironically, his Not So Above It All moments probably give him more character than in the original version.
- I Take Offense to That Last One!: He didn't appreciate Yami calling his beard "little".
- Lame Comeback: "Mr. Smarty-pharaoh" is not a very impressive insult.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: He claims he doesn't have a real name, so Yami names him "Bro." In the dub, his name was never mentioned — he introduced himself as "Gurimo" in the Japanese version.
- Never Say "Die": A Running Gag in Season 4 is him being subjected to an inversion of this trope. Yugi repeatedly refers to him as being dead ever since they dueled, even though he seems to know that this technically is not true.
- Not So Above It All: He starts off rather serious and stern, but as the episode continues he begins responding to Yami's slang-filled, immature insults in kind.
- Robbing the Dead: Yugi claims that this is what he did to "Bro" by taking the Orichalcos stone from his body after beating him. It's technically incorrect since "Bro" did not actually die, he lost his soul, but Yugi keeps referring to him as dead.
- Your Soul Is Mine: He introduces the Seal of Orichalcos to the series by doing this to Rex and Weevil, then threatens to do this to the Pharaoh. Later, he's subjected to this himself by Dartz.
The leader of the Elite Beat Agents and minor antagonist for the Pilot episode of Season Zero. Becomes a motorcycle-riding security guard in the future.
- Adaptational Villainy: Zig-Zagged. He's just as worse as his first anime counterpart, but he also died as a bully, whereas his original self went on to be a cop who is friends with Yusei in the future.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: His gigantic eyebrows are the first thing Yugi notices about him.
- Death by Adaptation: In the first episode of Season Zero, he gets Eaten Alive by giant man-eating worms. In contrast to the actual anime where he suffers from a horrible Mind Rape.
- Decomposite Character: Officially, Officer Trudge from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's is really the adult version of Ushio. Here, Ushio is simply that bully Yami Yugi killed in Season 0, while Trudge ends up being a "fan fiction police" in a charity video Little Kuriboh made for shadowwolf, appearing solely to arrest Yugi and Kaiba for violating Canon storylines.
- Only in It for the Money: His intentions are revealed when he demands 20000 Yen (That's like a whole dollar!) for his services (AKA beating up Joey and Tristan without Yugi ever telling him that he wanted him to.)
- Stealth Pun:
- Violence Really Is the Answer: Played for laughs when Yugi found out that he beat the ever loving crap out of Joey and Tristan.The Elite Beat Agents tried to solve your problems the old-fashioned way - by dancing. But unfortunately these guys refused to play along. So we tried a new method. We call it BEATING THEM HALF TO DEATH!
Jiro the Yellow Spider
A self-described "criminal mastermind and part-time fast food restaurant manager" who appears in the third episode of Season Zero.
- Adaptation Name Change: A small case. The canon Jiro called himself the Jorogumo, a type of Japanese spider. The third Season Zero episode gives him the moniker Yellow Spider, a common translation.
- Bad Boss: Forces Tristan to clean up an old woman's "mess" with his shirt and not a mop.
- Berserk Button: He doesn't take it kindly when you mock the quality of his restaurant's food. Unfortunately for him, this leads him to do something that ends up killing him
- Evil Is Petty: See Bad Boss.
- Kill It with Fire: How Dark Yugi kills him.
- Pet the Dog: Stored a supply of alcohol and cigarettes for Hayao Miyazaki.
- Poke the Poodle: While he does accomplish actual crimes by attempted murder and hostage situation in the episode, the reason the YouTube police sees him as a criminal mastermind was merely because he found a Loophole Abuse allowing him to post internet parodies without getting arrested for copyright.
- Tattooed Crook: The spider tattoo on his back gives away his identity.
- Too Dumb to Live: Even though Dark Yugi warned him shooting would set him on fire, he still decides to do so when his Berserk Button get pushed, which leads to his death.
- Would Hit a Girl: If said girl sings Firework off-key, as Tea finds out the hard way.
