Trivia

  • The Duel Monster series is not to be confused with the earlier series of the same name. As the series is the second to be based on the manga. Some sources state erroneously that the first series produced by Toei Animation is a "lost first season", although the two series are unrelated aside from plot continuity. The success of the Duel Monster series was one of the main factors in creating a real-world version of the game that served as the focal point of the series, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game.
  • Ishizu Ishtar is named after Isis, egyptian goddess who at one point was the principle goddess of Egypt. "Isis" is taken from an onomatopoeic Asianic word, Ish-ish, meaning "she who weeps." A rather fitting name, as Isis is heavily concerned about her brother, Malik.
  • The beginning of Yugi and Jounochi's names form "yujou", Japanese for "friendship".
  • Kaiba's given name "Seto" is based on the Egyptian God Set.
  • Tea's Japanese name, "Anzu" means "apricot".
  • In the Japanese version, the nameless spirit inside Yugi's puzzle is known to the audience as "Yami Yugi" or "Dark Yugi". Yugi calls the spirit inside his puzzle "Mou Hitori no Boku" meaning "The Other Me". At first, Yami Yugi calls his host "Mou Hitori no Ore," meaning the same thing, only less formal. After Yugi beats Pegasus, Yami Yugi calls his host "Aibou" meaning "partner". Yugi's friends refer to the spirit as "Mou Hitori no Yuugi," or the "The Other Yugi".
  • Serenity's Japanese name, Shizuka, means "quiet," "peaceful," or "calm".
  • "Yugi" means "game" or "to play".
  • Mai's Japanese last name, Kujaku, means "peacock".
  • Yugi's hair is based off a five-fingered hand, from the saying that when a person is born and becomes able to see, the very first thing that a person visually memorizes is the shape of their palm.
  • The title Yu-Gi-Oh literally means "King of Game" or "King of Duel" which is used in the series. Yugi means "game" and the letters oh or u means king.
  • Marik is the Japanese transcription of the arabic name "Malik" which means "king". Kisara means "broken" in arabic.
  • The title "Yugioh" is intended as a double word pun. "Yugioh" means "Game King" but if the "ou" is interpreted as an honorific then "Yugi-oh" basically means "King Yugi", which serves as a clue to the other Yugi's true identity.
  • Dan Green (the English voice of Yugi and Yami Yugi) has been a special guest and presenter at several official Konami Tournaments, where he often participates in a Scripted Duel and sometimes participates in Q&As. He also has advertised www.yugioh.com.
  • A series of uncut DVDs were made by 4kids Entertainment and FUNimation. This adaption stuck closer to the original Japanese in dialogue and events. Text is not removed, and as such Japanese cards from the original version are used. Some original names such as Sugoroku Muto are kept. Some characters names are a mixture of their original and English anime names, such as Joey Katsuya and Tea Mazaki. Also Tristan is voiced by Greg Abbey in the uncut DVDs. Whereas Mai is voiced by Kathleen Delaney rather than Megan Hollingshead or Bella Hudson.
  • In Japan, Yu-Gi-Oh! was shown in a remaster version titled 20th anniversary by showing a remastered re-broadcast of the Duelist Kingdom arc. Then with the Battle City Edition (バトル・シティ編) being a remastered re-broadcast of the Battle City arc. The series will skip the Virtual World storyline and will just show a remaster version of the Memory World as the series finale. Therefore the remaster version of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters is following the manga storyline. Also in the English version of the original series, Yami Yugi is the narrator. Whereas in the remaster version of the original series, Kemo is the narrator.
  • This anime series has the most episodes out of the four Yu-Gi-Oh! series, with 224 episodes. Yu-Gi-Oh! GX is second with 180 episodes, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's is third with 154 episodes, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is fourth with 148 episodes and Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL is the fifth with 146 episodes.
  • During most of Yugi's transformation into Yami Yugi in the English version, a scene of them transforming is added. In the Japanese version, each transformation scene is only shown once and whenever Yugi changes into Yami Yugi afterwards, the scene just switches from Yugi to Yami Yugi with no transformation scene.

Although the series continues from where the Toei anime ended, it is actually a reboot of the previous series. There are several parts that reveal it.

  • Yami Yugi never challenged Ushio in a Shadow Game, because when Ushio beat Yugi, it was the same time that he stood up for Joey and Tristan, and that time, the Millenium Puzzle wasn't completed.
  • Death-T never happened, because it was altered in just a Duel Monsters game using the technology of Solid Vision.
  • The Monster World game between Yami Bakura and Yami Yugi became a Duel Monsters Shadow Game.
  • Miho Nosaka was absent in the whole series, without a single cameo of her.
  • Many characters had their appearance changed, like Seto Kaiba, Solomon Muto, Yugi, Shadi, etc.
  • Shadi's first meet with Yugi was changed to be in the end of Duelist Kingdom arc. *Also this time, Shadi helped the gang many times in latter episodes instead of putting them in trouble,so he never played the Labyrinth Treasure Hunt and never challenged Yami Yugi to the Trial of the Mind.
  • Capsule Monster Chess was remade as Capsule Monsters.
  • The Jiro the Jorogumo incident was remade to a less violent incident with Tea being threatened by a Mugger in a warehouse and saved by Yami Yugi by playing a Duel Monsters Drawing Shadow Game.
  • Yugi solved the Puzzle in a different way, as shown in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light.
