"The Duel in Episodes 153-155 appears to have been structured to mirror or strongly resemble a Jewish wedding, beginning with Magic Chronicle as Yubel's dowry and the ketubah (Jewish wedding contract) and ending with a "cracked glass" when Jaden manages to take back Super Fusion and join his soul to Yubel's, something he reveals only after the worlds start shaking apart and the window in Sheppard's office cracks and shatters. With the exception of a couple of Jaden's more convoluted turns, it's actually possible to trace every single turn back to the ceremony, in perfect sequence. The resemblance even continues after the Duel—in a Jewish ceremony, the ceremony is complete when the bride and groom retire together, away from the guests (represented in this case by Syrus and Ojama Yellow). The German dub even adds a touch of its own, with Syrus commenting that "[Jaden] and Yubel are united among the stars"."

Can someone break this down for me please, because briefly looking up the stages of a Jewish wedding, I don't see how the duel parallels them.

Is Yubel really Jaden's official love interest? I've seen way more people saying Jesse is, even by Bonds Beyond Time after Jaden has bonded with Yubel.

Why does the page keep referring to Yubel as "she" if male pronouns are the canon pronouns?

TV Tropes goes by the most recent official media or the dub, where Yubel is female, and the most recent video games also refer to Yubel as female.

About the Draco in Leather Pants example, Edo wasn't really a villain because he had a Heel–Face Turn halfway through the second season. Oh, and should Darkness and Amnael count as DILPs?

Also, where is Ensemble Dark Horse on here? Because believe it or not, Daitokuji-sensei has a small following of fangirls. I should know because I am a part of said following.

I have to question if GX is really an Affectionate Parody of the original series. There's definitely aspects of it, but if it is intended a parody I'd say it's closer to an Indecisive Parody, as later seasons turn the show into a Deconstruction, and by their nature parodies are meant to be exaggerated and silly and deconstructions are serious and grim, I don't think the two styles can co-exist at the same time.

So, moral of the story - I'm going to reword that bit under Misaimed Fandom and add Indecisive Parody to the main page

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
