Season 1

    Mako 

Mako Tsunami (AKA the freaky fish guy)

"I am not a freaky fish guy!"

A water duelist who is mocked for his obsession with fish, something he hates.


  • Amusing Injuries: Attempted on Yugi, successfully employed against Grandpa, who he impales with a harpoon.
  • Berserk Button: Being called a Freaky Fish Guy. He eventually comes to accept it, however.
    Joey: "You're not just a Freaky Fish Guy, you are the Freaky Fish Guy!"
  • Blade on a Stick: He loves chucking harpoons at things.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's very loud and energetic.
  • Cargo Ship: invoked He was married to the Ocean at one point. Then they divorced and he dated an Aquarium before getting back together with the Ocean.
  • Memetic Mutation: invoked Lampshaded, "freaky fish guy" went this route after Season 1. Joey convinces Mako to embrace his reputation as this because giving the fandom a meme and a Running Gag is more contribution than many other characters can claim, and he should be proud of it.
  • No Social Skills: None, whatsoever. It's why he threw a harpoon at Yugi when they first met, because he didn't know how to ask him to stay.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Lampshaded by Téa.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Threw a harpoon at a kid who called him a freaky fish guy.
    Mako: What? That could have been anyone's harpoon!

    Rebecca Hawkins 

Rebecca Hawkins

Voiced by Safty (Season 1), ColonelCheru (episode 65 only) and Erika Harlacher (Season 4)

Prof. Hawkins's granddaughter, she first appears in episode 20 where she challenges Yugi for Solomon's Blue Eyes White Dragon, until she learns that it was ripped in half. Later returns in episode 65, where she appears to have developed an obvious crush on Yugi, who seems oblivious about it. In general, She's… not quite right in the head, as evidenced by her friend, Teddy, who may or may not be the Devil himself.


    Shadi 

Shadi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shadi_4641.jpg
"Jagshemash! My name is Shadi!"

Shadi is the ancient guardian of the Millennium Items, but he's not very good at his job since they kept getting stolen.


  • Captain Ersatz: Of Borat.
    Yugi: I suppose it could be worse. You could be acting like Brüno.
  • Catchphrase: "Jagshemash!"
  • Dead All Along: Parodied. At one point, he just randomly tells Ishizu and Marik that he's a ghost. They ask what that has to do with anything.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: His Catchphrase, "Jagshemash", is a bastardization of Polish phrase "Jak się masz" ("How do you do").note 
  • How Do You Say: Invokes it on occasion.
  • Jerkass: "I am, how you say, kind of a dick."
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: "Man will become like the animal, animal will become like the dirt, and dirt will become like the Jew."
  • Spirit Advisor: Subverted, as he only shows up if absolutely necessary, mostly to screw with people or tell them information that they already know, then leaves without actually helping them.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Completely disappears from the story after Season 2 without a trace. Although he might make a return in the final arc.

Season 2

    Egyptian God Cards 

The Egyptian God Cards

Monster cards created by Maximillion Pegasus. They are children's trading cards with the powers of actual Egyptian gods, confirmation if ever needed that card games are serious business. They are Obelisk the Tormentor, Slypher the Executive Producer and Mega Ultra Chicken. Come Season 4 they have their original names again.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: They're so huge that they can tower over buildings.
  • Berserk Button: They do not take having a counterfeit of them being used.
    Mega Ultra Chicken: INSOLENCE!!! YOU HAVE ANGERED THE GOD OF TRADING CARDS! NOW YOU WILL NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY!!
  • Bolt of Divine Retribution: What happens to anyone who presses the aforementioned Berserk Button.
  • Insistent Terminology: At one point Marik flubs the name of "Mega Ultra Chicken" much to Yami's annoyance.
    Yami: I thought it was called "Mega Ultra Chicken".
    Marik: Oh, that's right. I guess I forgot.
    Yami: That is inexcusable. You should be ashamed of yourself!
    Marik: I mean, it's just a trading card...
    Yami: Stop ruining Yu-Gi-Oh!, Marik!
  • Large Ham: See Berserk Button.
  • Odd Name Out: Initially, Obelisk is the only one not to have his name changed from the original anime. Probably so LK can use the "TOR-MEEEEENT!" clip for it.
  • Physical God: Yes, in both card games and real life. Their magic is potent enough to effect the real world to the extent where Ra can summon lightning to shower down on those who offend him.
  • Running Gagged: The joke names were seeming dropped at the end of Season 3. In a clip show where the original names are used, characters repeatedly snark "I don't know why it's called that!" / "Nobody does, it isn't funny!"

    The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future 

The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future

"FIVE THOUSAND YEARS AGO..."

A robot from the future… or the past… maybe? It appears to Kaiba in visions to help him. Or at least, it tries to. Mostly it just annoys and confuses him.

Season 3

    Hobson 

Hobson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hobson_smash_3190.jpg
"HOBSON SMASH!"

Voiced by: ShadyVox

Some "giant-faced mutant" Gozaburo hired as a Butler. Appears in Kaiba's flashback during The Cancelled Series. Also is the one who helped Seto take the company away from Gozaburo by giving his shares.


  • Adaptational Heroism: Not as much compared to his Season Zero counterpart, but Hobson in the second anime was Sadist Teacher who mistreated Kaiba on Gozaburo's instructions. This one hates Gozaburo for mistreating him, and eventually helps Seto take over KaibaCorp.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: In one scene, he is seen plotting to one day smash everything and force his masters to do silverware as a vengeance for Gozaburo's bad treatment. Then Mokuba arrives, politely asks him a service, and thanks and praises him when he agrees. Hobson immediately decides he won't smash Mokuba because of this. This might also be the reason he betrayed Gozaburo gave his shares to Seto.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Plans to do this to Gozaburo. He eventually does so by helping Seto get the company.
  • Expy: Of The Incredible Hulk.
  • Gonk: The reason Seto refers to him as a mutant.
  • Hulk Speak: "HOBSON SMASH!"
  • I Regret Nothing: When he helps Seto take control of Kaiba Corporation from Gozaburo, Gozaburo is shocked that Hobson would betray him. Hobson's response?
    Hobson: HOBSON REGRET NOTHING.
  • No Indoor Voice: Constantly yells his lines out loud.
  • Third-Person Person: Comes with Hulk Speak.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Pursued his dream of becoming a wrestler after Kaiba overthrew Gozaburo for control over Kaiba Corp.

Season 4

    Dark Magician Girl 

Dark Magician Girl

"Why does everyone wanna have sex in front of me?!"
Voiced by Nowacking as of Season 4

The Distaff Counterpart of Yugi's ace card, the Dark Magician. In Season 4, the Duel Monster spirit that the card is based on calls forth The Chosen Ones note  to awaken three legendary dragons and save the world from the Great Leviathan.


  • Buxom Is Better: The Pharaoh likes pointing this out.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: In her debut, a caption on the screen claims that "somewhere, a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan is touching themselves".
  • Distaff Counterpart: To the Dark Magician.
  • Going Commando: During Téa's Imagine Spot in Episode 49, Yugi claims that she watched a play about the Dark Magician Girl. During the play, she's not wearing any underwear during what would otherwise be a Panty Shot.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Seems unaware or indifferent about how attractive she is to other people.
  • Ms. Exposition: Her role at the beginning of Season 4.
  • Ms. Fanservice: As is the case in the real series, she's considered a sex symbol in-universe and in real life. One Running Gag with her is the Pharaoh pointing this out. Even Seto Kaiba thinks she's sexy, as he complains about Pegasus turning the hottest card in the game into a five-year-old by making the Toon Dark Magician Girl.
  • Only Sane Man: To the likes of Yami Yugi and Seto Kaiba.
  • Panty Shot: Averted. During Téa's Imagine Spot of the Dark Magician Girl play, there's a shot where the audience can see up her skirt, and there's a censor bar instead of panties.
  • Remember the New Guy?: In Téa's Imagine Spot in Episode 49, Yugi shows her the Dark Magician Girl card and claims that it's her favourite card despite her never having seen it before.
  • Rule 34: In-Universe. Jaden has "Two Dark Magician Girls, One Pot of Greed" bookmarked on his computer.
  • Running Gag:
    • The Pharaoh usually refers to her as something along the lines of "Dark Magician With Boobies" or "Dark Magician Who Got it Goin' On" rather than Dark Magician Girl.
    • In Season 4, whenever she tries to get The Chosen Ones to fulfill their destiny, they initially misinterpret it as a prompt that leads to a lot of sexual innuendo, much to her dismay.
  • Suddenly Voiced: In Bonds Beyond Time Abridged, she asks Dark Magician why they can talk in the movie. He tells her that A Wizard Did It. Starting with Season 4, she becomes a full character with dialogue.
  • That Came Out Wrong: Telling Seto Kaiba to "become one with the almighty beast" when said beast is a dragon goes about as well as you'd expect.
  • Toon: Like the Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon and Toon Summoned Skull, Toon Dark Magician Girl is a Super-Deformed version of a real monster, Dark Magician Girl in this case.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Mostly averted, as she's voiced by Nowacking, but prior to Season 4, her only speaking appearance was in Bonds Beyond Time Abridged, and she was played by LittleKuriboh with an unconvincing female voice.
  • A Wizard Did It: In Bonds Beyond Time Abridged, she asks the Dark Magician why the two of them are Suddenly Voiced, and this is the answer she gets.

    The Three Legendary Dragons 
The three almighty beasts that are sealed in stone after defeating a great evil known as The Great Leviathan. They are reawakened when Dark Magician Girl sent Yugi (both of them), Kaiba, and Joey to release them and wield their great power.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: As with many prominent monsters in the series, they are inhumanly large. Critias alone seems to be bigger than Kaiba's Blue Eyes White Dragon (the largest of the cast's ace cards, not counting the Egyptian Gods).
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Yugi used Timaeus to defeat The Great Leviathan the first time it appears.
  • Joke Weapon: The Claw of Hermos + Time Wizard = …a dorky looking cartoonish hammer.
  • Fusion Dance: As was the case in the original version, this is their schtick.
    • Timeaus fuses with other monsters to form brand new monsters.
    • Critias fuses with Trap Cards instead of Monster Cards to form new monsters.
    • Hermos fuses with other monsters to form Equip Spell Cards that further upgrade Joey’s monsters.
  • Physical God: Kaiba implied in the original dub that the dragons are as powerful as the Egyptian God Cards. Their true power level here in the Abridged series is unknown, but they’re definitely powerful enough to stand up to an Eldritch Abomination.
  • Poisonous Person: Doom Virus Dragon, who is created by Kaiba fusing Critias with his Crush Card Virus, enabling it to destroy monsters with 1500 ATK or more just from being summoned.
  • The Voiceless: As dragons. Once their true forms are revealed, as the Knights of Atlantis, they are rather obviously Yugi, Joey, and Kaiba in knight form.

Season 0

    "Gary Stu" 

"Gary Stu" (Shougo)

"I don't like playing card games!"

Voiced by: Safty

A never-before seen character who is reportedly Yugi’s best friend. He hates playing card games, so Kaiba tries to kidnap him to force him to take part in a card game tournament. Only appears in The Other Abridged Movie.


  • Adaptation Name Change: His name in the original movie is Shougo.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Little Kuriboh's then-girlfriend Safty plays the male Gary Stu.
  • Mary Sue: invokedInvoked and parodied. Despite the fact he’s never appeared before, he’s apparently Yugi’s best friend that he looks up to and has a really rare card.
  • Mind Rape: Watching Yugi and Kaiba duel for hours finally convinces him to love the game.
  • Only Sane Man: He's the only cast member who regards Duel Monsters as a stupid card game and has no interest in playing it.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Lampshaded.
    Yugi: Those bullies are being mean to Gary Stu!
    Joey: Who the hell is Gary Stu?
    Yugi: I don't know but apparently, he's my best friend.
    • Also this:
    Yugi: Gary what happened to you? You used to be so cool! I looked up to you! Which was pretty difficult since we never actually met.
  • Serious Business: His refusal to play Duel Monsters horrifies other people, who consider him an insane freak.

    Miho 

Miho

"Miho loves to dance!"

A strange, blue-haired girl that tends to appear when the Season Zero animation is used. Despite usually being seen around Yugi and his friends, they hardly ever notice she’s there.


  • Failed a Spot Check: Most of the time, the cast doesn't see her and mistake her voice for the wind.
  • Simpleton Voice: Her speech mannerisms show that she isn't very smart.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Yugi acknowledges her a total of once, and questions as to who she is and why she's watching him play a card game with Joey. For their part, Joey and Tristan think Yugi's just crazy.
  • Third-Person Person: Her few lines reveal her to be this.

Spin-Offs

    Jaden 

Jaden Yuki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AbridgedJaden_829.PNG
"Aw yeah! Looks like we chillin' with the King Of Games biatches! This shit be ballin'!"
Voiced by ShadyVox of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: The Abridged Seriesnote 

The hyperactive protagonist from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, who thinks he’s black, loves to spontaneously rap, and is highly disliked by other characters.


  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: He uses a lot of jive talk.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's been taking ballet for six years.
  • Same Character, but Different: Jaden's personality in LittleKuriboh's works is considerably different from how he's written in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: The Abridged Series, despite that version supposedly being the same as this one. To elaborate…
    • In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: The Abridged Series, Jaden tends to be a sarcastic asshole (and occasional Only Sane Man) to those around him and is generally deserving of the hatred and abuse he gets from them. In YGOTAS, he's more of an excitable, harmless, and dimwitted guy who others are disproportionally annoyed by.
    • When describing his background to Yusei, Jaden speaks rather fondly of Duel Academy, even calling it, "a kick-ass school that teaches how to play card games." In his own series, Jaden absolutely loathes Duel Academy for being a Weirdness Magnet, and is eager to get expelled so he doesn't have to put up with that crazy place.
    • Jaden seems to admire Yugi and appreciate the Winged Kuriboh card in this version. In YGXTAS, he finds the Winged Kuriboh card to be an annoying distraction at best and he hates Yugi for giving it to him.
    • Also in YGXTAS when put on the stop and asked to rap, Jaden bombed and was absolutely flawed. Meanwhile LK's Jaden is a pro at rapping and can due Freestyle no problem.
  • The Scrappyinvoked: In-universe. Yami and Yusei pretty much despise him and will call him out for even the slightest thing… even if it isn't actually bad. The Abridged fanbase seems to think otherwise, however.
  • Stepford Smiler: Implied in the Ishtar Family Christmas special.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: While he doesn't feel this way in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series anywhere near as much as in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX The Abridged Series, he plays himself as this in Evil Council 5 when pretending to be a villain leading the forces of evil.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: A milder example. When Yugi tries mocking him for having "imaginary friends", his only response is, "Oh, right, look who's talking."

    Yubel 

Yubel

Voiced by Kaiji Tang.

One of Jaden's two "imaginary friends", aka "the demon living inside my head." Actually a living spirit residing in the actual card "Yubel."


  • Ambiguous Gender: Yubel is canonically genderless, but seems to prefer being called a female by both herself and the cast. To make it even more confusing, her original self in the anime has her being a boy in her past life, before being made into what she is by "having the heart of a dragon".
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Farted on Yusei because she believed that he'd insulted Jaden. He didn't, and he never noticed her.
  • Demoted to Extra: Only has one line in the entire series.
  • Spirit Advisor: To Jaden, in theory. At least, it's her role in the canon.

    Lyman Banner 

Lyman Banner

A side character from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX who accompanies Jaden in Bonds Beyond Time in spirit form.


    Yusei 

Yusei Fudo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AbridgedYusei_9612.PNG
"Jack! ...I came again."
Voiced by TheAzureCrownote .

The protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. He's one of the saner characters in the series, despite the fact that he dates his bike. He has an incredibly nice voice.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: As noted below, he's a bit more selfish and cold compared to how he is in source material.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Aki is his; she adores him but Yusei wants nothing to do with her.
  • Anime Hair: Ironically, he freaks out at the sight of the hair of the other characters when his is just as bad.
  • Aroused by Their Voice: Deliberately played up it seems. Lampshaded in the movie when he introduces himself to Yugi.
    "I'm the serious one with a voice that makes the fangirls swoon".
  • Berserk Button: Do not call his bike smelly.
  • Canada, Eh?: From the credits of Bonds Beyond Time Abridged, it says "Every time Yusei slips into a Canadian accent, take a drink".
    "Withoot"
  • Cargo Ship: invoked His motorcycle is his girlfriend. He prefers it over girls because girls are smelly.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "I came... to [location]." It'll always get subverted by the end of the video, leading to gems like this:
      Yusei: "Paradox… I came."
      Paradox: "What?!"
      Yusei: "To the past."
      Paradox: "Oh."
      Yusei: "But I also had an orgasm!"
    • In the movie, "What's wrong with his hair?"
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: To Jack and Jaden.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: He regards the day Jack Atlas destroyed the city during a mic test as the worst day of his life on the grounds that he couldn't get laid due to everyone being too busy burning to death.
  • The Comically Serious: Very much so. Though he rarely makes actual jokes, he's still hilarious.
  • Girls Have Cooties: "Girls are smelly."
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    • Believes whole-heartedly of The Power of Friendship almost as much Tea does, yet he's the most hostile of the Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonists.
    • Constantly criticizes the absurd hairstyles of his fellow protagonists, even though his hair is just as ridiculous.
  • Jizzed in My Pants: He has a medical condition developed from riding on a motorcycle for long periods of time that gave him "a hair-trigger down there."
  • The Modest Orgasm: "Jack? I came… again."
  • Only Sane Man: He's rather intelligent and competent as far as this series goes.
  • The Power of Friendship: An honest-to-goodness believer, despite the fact that their antics (Jack and Jaden) and assholery (Yugi) annoy him most of the time.
  • Smug Super: He's quite confident in his dueling ability, to the point of declaring that he won any duel regardless of whether or not there was any victor or if they even dueled at all.
  • Straight Man: The smart and sane to Jack's loud and stupid. And Yugi and Jaden to some extent.
  • Tranquil Fury:
    Aki: Well, I think motorcycles are smelly!
    Yusei: Get out.
    Aki: But—
    Yusei: Get. Out.

    Jack 

Jack Atlas

"YUSEI!"

Another main character from 5D's. Likes CARD GAMES ON MOTORCYCLES and has No Indoor Voice.


  • Big "WHAT?!": Utters one any time that Yusei tells him that he came.
  • Catchphrase: "CARD GAMES ON MOTORCYCLES!" Later "re-branded" to "DUEL MONSTERS ON D-WHEELS!"
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Thinks Paradox is Waldo of Where's Waldo? when Yusei spots him in an old picture, and thinks the ash of the crumbling city is snow.
  • The Ditz: Jack is pretty much Tristan's only rival for the dumbest character on the show.
    Godwin: Jack, I will double your paycheck if you never say [card games on motorcycles] again.
    Jack: WHAT'S TWO TIMES ONE MILLION?
    Godwin: Two million, Jack.
    Jack: THEN I WILL STOP SAYING THAT. BUT ONLY BECAUSE I LIKE HAVING MORE MONEY.
  • Forgetful Jones: He was surprised to find out that he used to be in a band. He's forgotten again before the end of the conversation.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Yusei, although at one point they're called "Slightly homo life partners".
  • Hypocritical Humor: Calls Paradox a dick for stealing Yusei's Stardust Dragon card, before admitting "I know I did it in season one, but uh... He's a dick!"
  • Large Ham: HE'S ALWAYS SHOUTING AT THE TOP OF HIS VOICE LIKE THIS!
    Godwin: Jack, we need to talk.
    Jack: I MOSTLY JUST LIKE TO YELL.
    Godwin: Fine, I'll talk, you can yell.
    Jack: YAY.
  • No Indoor Voice: So much so that Jack shouting into a microphone caused a giant explosion.
    Yusei: The strange part is that the microphone wasn't even plugged in.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: He's supposed to be Cockney. This is parodied by dubbing his voice over a clip from Crocodile Dundee.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: He calls Jaden a "puff"note  twice in the Ishtar Family Christmas special because of the way his Supreme King costume looked.
  • Simpleton Voice: He sounds as dumb as he is.

    Aki 

Aki Izayoi/Akiza Izinski

Voiced by: Squeaky93

The female lead of 5D's. She is desperately in love with Yusei, but it's highly unlikely to go anywhere since he's dating his motorcycle.


    Yuma 

Yuma Tsukumo

Voiced by: Kirbopher
Protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL. Cameos at the end of Bonds Beyond Time.

  • Anime Hair: As is tradition for the series.
  • Catchphrase: EXTREME!!!!!
  • Flat Character: Justified in that ZEXAL hadn't even premiered when Bonds Beyond Time was uploaded, and so had no actual character to parody beyond his "extreme" design.
  • No Indoor Voice: Shouts all the time.
  • Out of Focus: The only Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonist besides Yuya and Yusaku to never have a solo spotlight. Yuya and Yusaku, meanwhile, don't even appear in the show.
  • Totally Radical: "Get set to get decked, motherf*ckers, yeah!"

Other

    The Slender Man 

The Slender Man, aka Jack Slenderman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thumbnailcacxozzf_2220.jpg

The Slender Man. Know him. Fear him. Give him $20 or he'll ruin your movie. And possibly eat some kids along the way. Was formerly Bakura's college roommate, and has made several guest appearances in the spinoff videos, though he hasn't appeared in the actual material. Yet. Appeared as the Third Angel in LittleKuriboh's Card Games For Charity NGE One-Shot.
