"what do YOU want?!"

Yami Yugi/Yugi Mutou
Yugi is the main character and the hero of Yu-Gi-Oh! He was given the Millennium Puzzle by his grandfather, Surogoku Mutou. Yugi then proceeded to solve and complete the Millennium Puzzle, thus accessing the hidden powers that waited in it. Within the puzzle, Yugi gained a hidden spirit, an ancient spirit that comes out whenever Yugi plays a game. This is what is known in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Series as Yami Yugi, or "Dark Yugi" in English. Yami Yugi is the only "good natured" spirit of the Millennium items and continually helps Yugi through all the tribulations set before him.

Starting with the Duelist Kingdom Story Arc, Pegasus J. Crawford, the creator of Duel Monsters, found out about Yami Yugi defeating the uncontested champion, Seto Kaiba. Pegasus knew Yugi had some kind of Millennium item, and in his quest to bring together all seven items, he lured Yugi into a major tournament held on an island named Duelist Kingdom. Pegasus lured Yugi, by first trapping him into a Shadow Game, in which Yugi lost due to the duel having a time limit. Since Yugi lost the "Shadow Game", Pegasus inflicted a "game penalty" to Yugi, thus stealing Surogoku's soul. This was the "bait" Pegasus needed to lure Yugi, as well as Bakura to the Duelist Kingdom, because Ryou Bakura was after Yugi's Millennium Puzzle as well.

With Yami Yugi taking over when the duels started, Yugi passed through most of his obstacles in the Duelist Kingdom, beating several challenging opponents. While doing this, he played with honor and skill, unfortunately, most of his opponents did not. He faced devastating opponents such as the sea duelist, Ryouta Kajiki (English name: Mako Tsunami), Insector Haga (English name: Weevil Underwood), Player Killer (English name: Panik), Mei and Kyuu (English names: Para and Dox, the Paradox brothers), and Seto Kaiba, right before Pegasus' castle, where Kaiba unleashed one of Yu-Gi-Oh!'s most perilous and powerful monsters, the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon.

Once Yugi got in the castle and was named one of the Duelist Kingdom finalists along with Bandit Keith Howard (Nickname and Eng. name: Bandit Keith), Mai Kujaku (English name: Mai Valentine), and Katsuya Jounouchi (English name: Joey). He faced Mai in the Duelist Kingdom semi-finals and won, unveiling his counter to the Blue Eyes White Dragon, the Black Luster Soldier, also known as the Chaos Soldier. In the finals, he faced a surprising Jounouchi, where they had an extremely impressive duel. Jounouchi waited for Yami Yugi to play Demon Summon (English: Summoned Skull), and with a quick combo, fused Summoned Skull with his own Red Eyes Black Dragon, creating Black Demon's Dragon (English: Black Skull Dragon). Yami Yugi got past this ordeal though, taking advantage when Jounouchi used his Time Magician's effect to turn Baby Dragon into Thousand Dragon. Unfortunately, for Jounouchi, he didn't know it would also turn Yugi's Black Magician (English: Dark Magician) into Black-Robed Sage. Yugi eventually beat Jounouchi, let Jounouchi take the claim to the prize money so he could help his sister, and Yugi went on to duel Pegasus.

Yugi and Pegasus laid high stakes on the line. Pegasus said he would free Seto Kaiba, Mokuba Kaiba, and Surogoku Mutou if Yugi won, but said Yugi would become entrapped and would lose the Millennium puzzle if he lost. After seeing and surviving Toon World and the Thousand Eyes Sacrifice, Yugi finished off Pegasus with the Magician of Black Chaos (Likely English Name: Magician of Dark Chaos).

Yugi later went on to help Kaiba fight the "Big 5" (the people who tried to take over Kaiba Corp) and encounter Otogi in the Dungeon Dice Monsters. Currently, Yugi is participating in the Battle City tournament and wields the god card, Osiris, as well as Jounouchi's Red Eyes Black Dragon (see the situation in later updates, and in Jounouchi's bio, how he lost Red Eyes).

Yugi's Duelist Kingdom deck, or rather, Surogoku's deck has a Black Magician Theme, with support from a ritual theme. Surogoku's deck is very ingenious at first, but when Yugi loses Exodia, and gives Jounouchi his Time Magician, it strictly becomes a basic Black Magician Deck supported by ritual monsters. Yami Yugi, being the great duelist that he is, constructed a new deck for the Battle City Story Arc, and so far, it has worked to satisfaction, leading Yugi far into the tournament finals. While it still centers on the Black Magician, Yugi has added a few counters to his new deck to the Blue Eyes White Dragon, such as the Buster Bladder, and when Jounouchi refused to take his Red Eyes back when Yugi won it back from a Rare Hunter, Yugi kept it in his deck. So now, with Red Eyes and Demon Summon both in his deck, he can fuse them into Black Demon's Dragon (Eng. name: Black Skull Dragon).

Tea's "i've just been molested" look haha

Neener Neener

Friendship Power.. (thats so stupid..haha)

Tea Gardner

Tea is a freshmen at Domino High School. Her dream is to visit New York and study dance. While that's not happening, she spends her free time at school with her friends. She worked at a burger place called "Burger World", but a criminal there stopped that. Yugi had saved her from getting shot down. That was when Tea started wondering about the person that had saved her, and her friend Yugi. She is often found with Yugi and is sometimes mistaken for his girlfriend. Yugi would love that to happen, but perhaps Tea finds safety in the fact that their just friends. Tea cares a lot about her friends and shows it on a regular basis. Tea can't stand Mai. She only puts up with her because she's another duelist. Later down the road Tea and Yugi find themselves together, accepting each other for who they really are. Among all of Yugi's friends, Téa is the voice of reason. A childhood friend of Yugi's, Téa is also the biggest cheerleader in the group, always encouraging everyone to believe in themselves and to never give up. Téa loves her friends so very much and is willing to help them in any way she possibly can.
What hikari says about Tea: Well lets see.. tea definatly has a crush on yugi (hahah) and omfg she is obsessed with friendship! dang i think they all are. Or is that the way cartoon network made it?  I dont know but, what ever funimation did to YuGuiOh.. they totally screwed it up!

Joey Wheeler
He is one of Yugi's best friends and slowly develops himself into one of the best duelists in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! Along with his tight pack of friends, Yugi, Anzu (English: Tea), and Hiroto Honda (English name: Tristan Taylor) they journey to the Duelist Kingdom and Jounouchi, despite not being invited, is lent one star chip by Yugi and officially becomes part of the Duelist Kingdom tournament. He duels for his sister in this tournament, because she has an eye disease that will eventually cause her to go blind. With an expensive operation though, she can be cured.

On the boat to Duelist Kingdom, Jounouchi (Joey) is lent the rare Time Magician (English: Time Wizard) card when Yugi sees he has traded for the Baby Dragon card. Jounouchi trades for some really major magic cards that save his behind later in the Duelist Kingdom tournament. When they first land on the island, Jounouchi dueling skills are a joke, and not only that, but his first duel is against the skilled, Mai Kujaku (English: Mai Valentine). She starts to pretend she has psychic abilities and starts to mentally put Jounouchi off his game. With some help from Yami Yugi, Jounouchi eventually realizes Mai just put different perfumes on her cards, and with a quick play of Time Magician, aging Harpy Ladies, and turning Baby Dragon into Thousand Dragon, wins one of Mai's starchips.

Jounouchi then comes across Dinosaur Ryuzaki (English: Rex Raptor), who is pushed to duel Jounouchi because he wants to duel Mai. In this duel, Ryuzaki starts pounding through Jounouchi's deck with pure dinosaur beat down. Jounouchi eventually draws the Flame Swordsman, and starts slicing through Ryuzaki's dinosaur sub-types. Ryuzaki then draws his Evilknight Dragon (English: Serpent-Knight Dragon) and disposes of the Flame Swordsman. Jounouchi eventually plays Barbarian #1 and Barbarian #2 (English name: Lava Battle guard & Swamp Battleguard) which repels Evilknight Dragon's attack and destroys itself. Ryuzaki then plays one of the most popular cards in Yugioh and perhaps one of the most feared, the Red Eyes Black Dragon. Not only that, but Ryuzaki attaches the Dark Dragon Claws, raising its power to 3000, the exact Blue Eyes atk strength. Red Eyes incinerates the Barbarian duo, and Jounouchi is backed into a wall, while Ryuzaki strikes a bargain with Jounouchi, saying whoever wins gets the cards on the field. Jounouchi agrees and is reminded of the Time Magician on the field. He uses it, and Ryuzaki loses the duel.

Jounouchi then comes across some other tough situations including his duel with Ghost Kotsuzuka (English name: Bonz/Bones), where he uses the Shield in the Right Hand, Sword in the Left Hand (English: Sword and Shield) magic card to dispose of Kotsuzuka's undead type monsters. He then tags with Yami Yugi versus the Labyrinth Brothers, Mei and Kyuu (English: Paradox Brothers, Para & Dox), where Red Eyes fuses with Summoned Skull and forms the Black Skull Dragon. Jounouchi makes it all the way into the finals, where now he is a seasoned duelist. In the Duelist Kingdom semi-finals he faces Bandit Keith Howard (English: Bandit Keith).

In his Duelist Kingdom semi-final match, he encounters Keith's Machine deck. At first, Jounouchi tries to fight with his magical monsters, but finds out machine monsters have a natural resistance to magic monsters (Note: Applies only to anime, not CCG). This puts Jounouchi in a tight situation. Keith then reveals his Devilzoa monster card along with a trap, Metal Conversion - Magic Reflex Armor (English: Unknown, it could be Metal Force or Metallize). This turns Devilzoa into Metal Devilzoa, with the insane strength of 3000. This is when Jounouchi makes his comeback, activating Pit Trap destroying Metal Devilzoa, and then starts going through Keith's deck. Jounouchi plays Baby Dragon along with Time Magician, aging Keith's Revolver Dragon (English: Barrel Dragon), and turning Baby Dragon into Thousand Dragon, but Keith activates his Time Machine trap card, bring back Revolver Dragon and annihilating Thousand Dragon. With a quick play of the Red Eyes Black Metal Dragon and Dark Dragon Claws (Atk str: 3400) he kills Revolver Dragon. Keith destroys REBMD, but Jounouchi uses Grave Digger to copy Keith's Time Machine trap, reviving Red Eyes and defeating Keith.

Jounouchi loses to Yugi in the Duelist Kingdom finals, but Yugi gives him the claim to the prize money if he wins so Jounouchi can help his sister. Yugi goes on to defeat Pegasus, and Jounouchi gets the operation done for his sister, Shizuka Jounouchi (English: Serenity Wheeler). He helps Yugi in the side story arcs between Duelist Kingdom and Battle City, and eventually participates in the Battle City tournament. He faces a Rare Hunter from the organization that wants the god cards, and Rare Hunter defeats Jounouchi because Rare Hunter plays with an Exodia deck. Yugi duels and defeats Rare Hunter and getting Red Eyes back, but Jounouchi doesn't accept it.

Jounouchi plays with a basic Warrior/Beast Deck, with a mix of luck cards like the Time Magician. Red Eyes immensely helps him in Duelist Kingdom, but in Battle City he gains some really awesome cards for his deck. He gains Android: Psycho Shocker from defeating Esper Roba, and Legendary Fisherman and Fortress Whale from Ryouta Kajiki (English: Mako Tsunami).

He wants YOU!

Look how cute he is!! n_n

Scared...but still cute ^_^

sigh.. jou being a bakka

Jou and card

Bakura's hot yami.. hehe

"Choose your fate!"

Favorite pic of bakura..right here!

The millenium ring glows... GASP!

Looking at surroundings

Ryou Bakura/Yami Bakura
Bakura is a new transfer student into Yugi Mutou's high school class. The normal Bakura is a kind-hearted person who encourages Yugi and Jounouchi through their duels in Duelist Kingdom. The bad part to Bakura is that he is the wielder of another Millennium item. He wields the Millennium Ring, contrary to Yugi's Millenium Puzzle, Pegasus' Millennium Eye, and Malik's Millennium Rod.

Bakura's Millenium Ring contains a very evil spirit that takes control of him and has very dark ambitions that rival even Yami Malik's ambitions. The Millennium Ring has the power to locate other millennium items with its various pointers. Yami Bakura is first seen when Yugi is challenged to a Game of Darkness (English: Shadow Game) by Bakura in the Duelist Kingdom. Bakura entraps normal Yugi, Honda (English: Tristan), Jounouchi (English: Joey), and Anzu's (English: Tea) souls into their favorite cards inserted in Yugi's deck. Yami Bakura then proceeded to claim the Millennium Puzzle in which Yami Yugi stopped him. Yami Yugi won his duel versus Yami Bakura with a quick use of his shadow powers. He switched normal Bakura's soul with the soul of Yami Bakura in Bakura's Change of Heart card to send Yami Bakura to the graveyard.

At the very end of Duelist Kingdom, Yami Bakura makes a return appearance by "disposing" of Pegasus and taking his Millennium Eye. When Battle City rolls around, Bakura is still with the group, but Yami Bakura shows his true intentions of taking the Millennium Puzzle. He duels Yami Yugi again in a rematch, during Battle City. Yami Bakura took an early advantage using a combo from his Occult Deck, involving the Dark Necrophia (English name: Unknown) and Quija Board.

As long as Dark Necrophia was in the graveyard, Yugi had 5 turns left in the duel to finish it, otherwise he would lose. If all 5 turns of the Quija Board are passed, spelling D-E-A-T-H, Yugi would automatically lose. (Note: In the CCG it is different, you need 5 magic cards to assemble to win.) With a quick combo, and one turn left, Yugi manages to summon the god card, Osiris. Bakura gets hit with Osiris' Thunder Force attack and falls unconscious. Currently in the magna, after this duel, Yami Bakura faced Yami Malik in one final duel. The game penalty to the loser would be that whoever lost would disappear forever. As it seemed, Bakura loses, via Malik's summoning of Ra, and the revealing of Ra's final ability, the Hand Phoenix. This allows Malik to sacrifice all his LP but 1, and transfer all LP sacrificed to Ra's attack and defense stats. As Ra uses his Breath Cannon to wipe out Bakura, Yami Bakura says, "I may have lost, but I will definitely be back, and I will kill you. This is because I AM the darkness."

Bakura has not reappeared in the series, manga or anime, since that duel. Bakura uses an Occult deck, which is a mixture of dark main type monsters, and fiend monsters. He is pretty good at dueling with this in his Yami form. His main combo is the Dark Necrophia / Ouija Board combo, but if not he has some strong back-up monsters lying in wait.

even with messed up hair.. hes sexy

reading.. yea cos hes smart like that..

running.. to where? no one knows..

kaiba has pretty eyes

insert.. elbow.. here...hahaha

Seto Kaiba

He is Yugi's main rival, and an extremely good duelist. He is the Duel Monsters World Champion, and has only lost three times in his life. He loses to Yugi before Duelist Kingdom because of Exodia, he then loses again to Pegasus, and finally loses in the Battle City semi-finals to Yugi. While extremely cold on the exterior he has a soft-spot for his little brother Mokuba. Seto inherited Kaiba Corp from his father that adopted him. The Kaiba brothers were adopted when he beat Kaiba Corp's former chairman at a game of chess. Kaiba's "father" trained him to be cold, which is what turned out to be Kaiba today.

Seto Kaiba goes to the Duelist Kingdom to rescue his little brother Mokuba, when Pegasus kidnaps him in a plot for the "Big 5" to take over Kaiba Corp. After the duel with Yugi, in the Duelist Kingdom, he is seen dueling Jounouchi, and then duels Yugi again to gain entrance to Pegasus' castle. Kaiba wields the mighty Blue Eyes White Dragon, and although people think its the strongest non-fusion card in Duel Monsters, it is far from it.

When Kaiba duels Jounouchi to test out the prototype Duel Disk system, Kaiba horribly beats Jounouchi even though Jounouchi started to make a comeback with Red Eyes. Then Pegasus forces Kaiba's hand, and Kaiba must then duel Yugi for entrance into the castle. At the beginning of the duel, the match is pretty even with Kaiba summoning Lamp Spirit: Ra Djinn (English: La Jinn) and Vengeful Swords talker (English: Swords talker), while Yugi used his Curse of Dragon and Black Magician (English: Dark Magician). Kaiba then plays his Saggi: The Dark Clown / Deck Destruction Virus of Death (English: Crush Card Virus) combo, infecting Yugi's deck for the remainder of the duel (Note: In the CCG, it only infects your deck for three turns). Kaiba then fuses all three of his Blue Eyes White Dragons into Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, one of the most powerful duel monsters in existance. Yugi counters with the ultimate defense, using a Kuribo / Multiply combo. With that, Yugi fused his Mammoth Graveyard into BEUD, reducing BEUD's attack by 1200 each turn. When Yugi finally weakened it below 1400, he summoned Retrained Elvish Swordsman (English: Celtic Guardian) and killed one of the BEUD's heads. Kaiba went to the psycological game and threatened to jump of the castle if Yugi won the duel. Yugi conceded and lost the duel.

Kaiba then loses to Pegasus in their duel to settle Mokuba's fate. Pegasus' use of Toon World, and then his use of the Copycat (English: Mimicking Illusionist) to copy Kaiba's Deck Destruction Virus of Death card, was too much for Seto in the end. Pegasus then trapped Seto's soul in a card, like Mokuba. Yugi then went on to defeat Pegasus, thus releasing Kaiba's soul.

After the Duelist Kingdom ended, Kaiba turned his wrath on the Big 5. They challenge him to a virtual game, and with Yugi, Jounouchi, and Mai's help he wins. This is where the two most powerful cards in the game are revealed, The Five-god Dragon, and the Master of Dragon Knight. After this ordeal with the Big 5, Kaiba is given the god card, Obelisk, by Isis Ishtal, so an organization called the GHOULS don't achieve getting all three-god cards. Kaiba then sets up the Battle City tournament to attract the controllers of all three-god cards to the tournament.

Tristan Taylor

Tristan Taylor Tristan is Joey's best friend along with Yugi. He doesn't play a spectacular role in the series, but like Tea Gardner , goes with Yugi and Joey to the Duelist Kingdom tournament to provide moral support. Tristan is known to have some Duel Monsters cards but doesn't duel anywhere in the series. Like Joey, he has a quick temper, but is very supportive of Joey, and is quick to remind Joey of his sister when Joey loses control of a situation.

Although Tristan Taylor doesn't duel two of his cards are featured in the Duelist Kingdom Story Arc. His favorite card, Cyber Commander, was entered into Yugi's deck when Yami Yugi faced off in a Shadow Game with Yami Bakura. Yami Bakura trapped all of Yugi's friend's souls into their favorite cards which were entered into Yugi's deck. They only escaped because Yami Yugi dueled and defeated Yami Bakura. The other card featured from Tristan Taylor's deck was the Swamp Battleguard, which Joey entered in his deck with his duel against Rex Raptor. It helped Joey's Lava Battleguard to repel Valentine's Serpentknight Dragon.

During Battle City, Tristan Taylor again is nothing but a cheerleader although he does help on the sidelines guiding Joey's sister, Serenity through Battle City while her brother duels and eventually goes on to fight in the Battle City Semi-finals where Joey is barely defeated by Marik in a Shadow Game.

A decent picture of Tristan

i dont want to know what that object is.....

Tristan getting angry!

marik and his ever sexy smirk.. sigh

"I banish you to the shadow realm!"

I think he's looking at somone hehe

purple is a good color for marik n_n

Marik Ishtar

Marik Ishtar was born to a family of tomb keepers, but his mother died after his birth, because of this his father never loved him. The youngest child and only boy in his family he was meant to take on the role of head tomb keeper in his family, because of this he was not meant to see the out side world. The only people who were company were his older sister Ishizu and his adopted brother Odion, who was more of a friend to him then a brother.

At the age of 11 Marik was given the initiation to become head tomb keeper, even though he never wished to take on the role when his father was to die. From this initiation Marik received a large tattoo that covers the whole of his back, the tattoo tells the secrets of the Pharaoh and only those who can read the ancient Egyptian text know what it says.

After the initiation Marik began to go mad and only Odion seamed to keep the evil back, but not for long. Not long after his initiation Ishizu took Marik up to see the out side world, with their father not knowing, it was up here that Marik saw his first T.V. and magazine, it was in this magazine that he saw his first motorcycle, after he saw it he said that he would one day own one of his own. Ishizu took Marik home thinking that his father would never find out, but somehow he did and was going to kill Odion because he felt that Odion was responsible for his son going up to the outside world. Marik went mad and took the Millennium Rod, which is when his evil side began to show it’s self to his family, Marik then attacked his father and killed him with a dagger that is inside of the Millennium Rod.

Odion managed to again keep the evil side of Marik away but now Marik blamed the Pharaoh for his father’s death and was out for revenge, he took the Millennium Rod for himself. With Odion as his right hand man he formed a gang called the GHOULS and stole 2 of the 3 Egyptian God Cards, Slifer the Sky Dragon and the Winged Dragon of Ra. Marik then entered the Battle City competition using the false name Nabu, he would take over peoples minds with his Millennium Rod and then make them go up against Yugi Mutou, who holds the Millennium Puzzle and is the Pharaoh.

"i see you" haha

he wants YOU!

duke devlin.. the one and only

Duke Devlin

Duke originally arrives on a mission: to get revenge on one Yugi Moto for ruining his chances for a great game success. Duke likes Duel Monsters, but his real love is dice. So he decided to develop a way to combine those ideas into a new game. He spent a long time developing every aspect of the game, using concepts from dice-based RPGs and from Duel Monsters. Eventually, he had it all together: Dungeon Dice Monsters. Duke decided to submit his game idea to Industrial Illusions to see if they would distribute the game. Pegasus himself invited him to Duelist Kingdom to try the game out.
Pegasus used the Millennium Eye to cheat and win the game, but he complimented him on such a fascinating concept. Pegasus said he'd begin work on the game soon, but he a had a tournament about to begin on the island. He would see to the game after the tournament. Duke left the island with a marked respect for the man. Yugi then beat Pegasus at the end of the tournament, and ever since then, Pegasus has been out of the picture (I didn't know the real reason for Pegasus' incapacitation: his encounter with Yami Bakura and the theft of the Millennium Eye). Duke was mad. To me, Yugi had robbed him of his chance, and he couldn't believe that Yugi could beat Pegasus at the game that Pegasus had created himself. Thus, when Duke beat Joey and Yugi attempted to challenge to save Joey's face, he set the challenge: a duel with Dungeon Dice Monsters...and if Yugi lost, he'd never duel again.
 It was then Yugi managed to defeat him (at the game that he created) that he realized finally that Yugi was the genuine article: the King of Games. His spirits received a boost, however, when a e-mail came from Industrial Illusions. It was the contract for the Dungeon Dice Monsters game. With that, Duke was able to make up with Yugi and the gang. Duke re-appeard on the scene in Battle City, first by coming to Tristan and Serenity's aid. This would turn out, however, to be the beginning of a rivalry...because both him and Tristan are developing a crush on Serenity!

I got this music from

I do not own any of the YuGiOh or Yu Yu Hakusho characters. I simply love the show and manga and am a big fan :)
