Trivia / Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS

Go To

  • Acting for Two:
    • In the original Japanese airing:
      • Tomokazu Seki voices Frog, Pigeon, and Eagle.
      • IKKAN voices both Bishop and the MC.
      • Masaaki Yano voices both Knight and Boot.
      • Minami Takahashi voices Roboppy and a young Ryoken Kogami.
    • In the dub:
      • Varis (Revolver) and Gore (GO) are both voiced by Daniel J. Edwards.
      • Koulter (Kusanagi) and Knight are both voiced by Sam Black.
  • Blooper: During Soulburner and GO's Duel, Soulburner shuffles "Falco" and "Jack Jaguar" from his GY to his deck by the effect of "Rise of the Salamangreat". However, the only monsters with levels in Soulburner's GY at the time were "Jack Jaguar" and "Meer", as "Falco" was shuffled into the deck due to "Jack Jaguar's" effect, and thus Ritual Summoning "Emerald Eagle" should've been impossible as Soulburner technically doesn't meet the requirements based on the levels of his GY's monsters.

  • Celebrity Voice Actor: Shouya Ishige, voice of Yusaku, is a Japanese actor who had a few minor voice roles before he was cast into VRAINS. He's also the third protagonist voice actor who falls under this trope, after those of Yugi and Yusei, Shunsuke Kazama and Yuuya Miyashita, respectively.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Haru is voiced by Ryoko Shiraishi.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Yu-Gi-Oh! Try for the series itself, mainly for its Tag Line and Arc Number being a recurring theme.
    • With the introduction of Speed Duels, many fans would usually call it "Duel Links: VRAINS Version".
    • HACKERMAN for Yusaku. Sometimes Skater Boi instead.
    • Certain groups have shortened Ignis into "Iggy".
    • Hotdog guy for Kusanagi (Koulter). Sam Black has embraced this one.
  • I Knew It!:
    • In a hilarious variation, almost everyone assumed that the 'terrifying' card Revolver used to defeat Ghost Girl was the entirely mundane Mirror Force, as confirmed when GO Onizuka falls victim to it as well.

    • While Aoi & Aqua's relationship is not what many expected, many people from the beginning of the series predicted they would eventually team up. Come episode 77 it finally happened.
    • Most people expected Kusanagi to betray Yusaku when the second OP more or less spoiled it.
  • Name's the Same:
    • VRAINS isn't the first Yu-Gi-Oh! series to have a character named "Haru".
    • GX also has a character named "Echo", childhood friend of Amon Garam.
  • Promoted Fanboy:
    • Shunsuke Takeuchi, best known for his voicework on THE iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls' Producer, has followed the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise since his younger days.
    • Yuuki Kaji, who provides the voicework for Takeru Homura/Soulburner, reveals in an interview that he got into Yu-Gi-Oh! since the original series manga commenced serialisation, and is honoured to be given the opportunity to contribute his voicework to the franchise's anime series.

    • Miku Kobato of Band-Maid considers it an honour that the band was chosen to perform ED4, "glory", as someone who personally has been a fan of Shueisha's Jump since her childhood.
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
  • Schedule Slip: VRAINS was originally scheduled to begin airing on April 2017 after the conclusion of ARC-V, but was delayed to May 2017.
  • Star-Making Role:
    • Yusaku Fujiki is Shouya Ishige's first major voice acting role.
    • Emma Bessho is Yuna Kamakura's first major voice acting role.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Frog, Pigeon, and Eagle, all voiced by Tomokazu Seki.
    • In the dub, Varis and Gore are both voiced by Daniel J. Edwards. Daniel even joked that he can't wait to kick his own butt, making a reference to episode 39-40.
  • Trolling Creator: Alyson Leigh Rosenfield revealed that she was joining the dub in Season 2 on Twitter. When she was quizzed on who she was voicing, she quickly explained that she couldn't reveal who it was yet, but proceeded to troll the bajebaz out of the commenters.
  • Troubled Production: The Schedule Slip with the series' debut, occasional Previously On clips composed of clips from previous episodes, and unusual amount of Recap Episodes during its run led some to speculate production issues. The second director of the series, Katsuya Asano, eventually confirmed this (alongside a third apology after the airing of the fourth recap episode). This was hinted at with the first director of the series being Masahiro Hosoda, famous in Japan to be the man capable of working under the most extreme pressure in the anime industry, the guy that animation studios usually called for when there's a production issue so serious, the animation project is in risk of being outright cancelled. Katsuya Asano didn't step in until after the situation has calmed down a bit.
