- Cross-Dressing Voices: Both Yugis are voiced by Megumi Ogata, so Yugi sounds very young, and Dark Yugi has kind of a husky Contralto of Danger.
- Fan Nickname:
- 'Series 0' or 'Season 0'.
- Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series calls it The Forbidden Season.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: The only release this anime got was on VHS tapes in Japan, all of which are out of print. The 30-minute movie is just as scarce.
- No Export for You: The Toei anime was never released outside of Japan, even after the franchise became very popular overseas.
- What Could Have Been: Imagine what could have happened had this show continued past the first seven manga volumes. The episodes we did get are so eclectic that who knows how a hypothetical Toei version of Duelist Kingdom or Battle City could have gone.
- The Wiki Rule: The Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki, and the forked site, Yugipedia.
