Jaden Yuki / Judai Yuki (遊城十代 Yūki Jūdai?)
Voiced by: KENN, Mariko Nagahama (young) (Japanese), Matthew Charles (English)
Jaden Yuki is the main protagonist of the series. He is described as an energetic boy who comes to Duel Academy to learn to become the new King of Games. He enjoys seeking out new duel challenges and is known to be quite lucky when it comes to his draws. He is capable of communicating with Duel Spirits, most often conversing with Winged Kuriboh, a card he received from Yugi Mutou on the day of his entrance exam. He specialises in using Fusion Monsters, his main deck being the Elemental Heroes deck before later obtaining a set of Neo-Spacian monsters and his key card, Elemental Hero Neos. Following the third season, in which he entered an alternate dimension and confronted the duel spirit, Yubel, he has gained the powers of both The Supreme King, an evil alter-ego he temporarily took on, and Yubel, giving him powerful insight.
Syrus Truesdale / Sho Marufuji (丸藤翔 Marufuji Shō?)
Voiced by: Masami Suzuki (Japanese), Wayne Grayson (English)
Syrus Truesdale is a timid young boy who enrolls into Duel Academy with Jaden, quickly taking a liking to him (calling him 'aniki' in the Japanese version.) He often doubts himself, living in the shadow of his older brother, Zane, but has shown himself to be a talented duelist, managing to rise in the ranks from Slifer Red to Obelisk Blue. He battles using a Vehicroid deck, which in season four becomes a Cyberoid deck that he creates by implementing Zane's Cyber Dark Dragon deck.
Chazz Princeton / Jun Manjome (万丈目準 Manjōme Jun?)
Voiced by: Taiki Matsuno (Japanese), Tony Salerno (1-89), Marc Thompson (90 onwards) (English)
Chazz Princeton is initially a selfish and arrogant duelist. Chazz is initially portrayed as an antagonist but eventually serves as one of Jaden Yuki's rivals throughout the series. However, it is revealed early in the first season of the series that his elitism stems from his older brothers who urge him to become a great duelist in order to have their family reign over the dueling world, as his brothers rule over the political and financial worlds. After becoming estranged with his brothers, Chazz decides to pursue a career in dueling without their help. It is revealed that Chazz has a soft side in the second season. When Alexis's brother arrives to take Alexis to make a band, they have a duel. During the duel, Chazz cheers on Alexis calling her "Lexi". He also has an awkward crush on Alexis.
He initially uses a power based deck, focusing on powerful monsters such as the Armed Dragons. Later on, he becomes able to see duel spirits and starts using the Ojama Trio, a trio of brothers with zero attack points but several uses.
His self-imposed nickname in the English version is "The Chazz" while his Japanese nickname is "Manjoume Thunder", which is spawned from the phrase "It's Manjoume-san!" ("Manjōme-san da!"?). In the manga, Chazz is a more serious character than his anime counterpart, and his main spirit card is Light and Darkness Dragon. Chazz's character design was overseen by Kenichi Hara.[1] His usual outfit consists of a slightly tattered black jacket with gray trimmings and sharp edges flowing out the costume's lower back. He originally wore the standard Obelisk Blue uniform, but switched to the black outfit after the leaving the school temporarily midway through the first season. He also wore a white version of his standard black outfit during his time in the Society of Light. His black hair is sectioned in two layers, his black eyes positioned directly beneath the bangs of the layer closest to his face. He carries an Academy-issued Duel Disk on his left hand.
Alexis Rhodes / Asuka Tenjoin (天上院明日香 Tenjōin Asuka?)
Voiced by: Sanae Kobayashi (Japanese), Priscilla Everett (1-26), Emlyn Morinelli McFarland (27 onwards) (English)
Alexis Rhodes is an Obelisk Blue student at Duel Academy who quickly takes interest in Jaden's talent. Later, it is also revealed that she loves Jaden. She duels using a Cyber Girl deck. Jaden accepted a duel with another player, and whomever won was to be engaged to Alexis, Jaden won but in the end had no idea what fiancee meant so Alexis responded " It means friends. At least for now, big guy." She also knows that Chazz has a crush on her.
In the timeline of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime, Alexis, residing in the Obelisk Blue dormitory along with Zane Truesdale and initially Chazz Princeton, is one of the top students at Duel Academy. She does not follow the crowd nor does she regard herself as better than other people like some students in the dormitory, but has a stern pride as an Obelisk Blue duelist.
Alexis mourns for her long-lost older brother, Atticus Rhodes. With the help of Zane, the top duelist at Duel Academy, she constantly searches for clues surrounding his disappearance, until it is revealed that he joined the Shadow Riders, under the control of Nightshroud.[2] Defeated by Jaden Yuki in a Shadow Duel and relieved of this persona, the incident leaves Atticus amnesic, prompting his sister to engage in a Duel with Titan to restore his memories.[3]
Later in the series, Chazz comes out about his infatuation with Alexis after Jaden defeats the final Shadow Rider.[4] Atticus helps Chazz with his crush and he steals all seven Spirit Keys needed to revive the Sacred Beasts in order to force Alexis to duel with him. Although Chazz plays suggestive cards such as Hidden Wish and Love Letter to show her how much he cares, Alexis wins in the end, stating that she cannot return his feelings, because she "loves dueling". Chazz's crush on Alexis continues throughout the series, although after having his free will sapped by Sartorius, his interests fade, until he is rescued by Jaden and returned to his former self.
At the start of the second year, Alexis moves into a spare room in the Slifer Red dormitory to escape Vellian Crowler, who was pestering her to begin a career with her brother as duelists that sings pop songs during duels.
Following Chazz's entrance into the Society of Light, Alexis duels with him to keep him from taking over Obelisk Blue completely. She fails, however, and meets the same fate as her fellow elites. Sartorius would subsequently strip Alexis of her mind completely, rendering her cold and heartless.[5] Providing her with a new White Knight deck, he orders her to retrieve the key to the mind control satellite of Misgarth, which his good personality entrusted to Jaden, but was freed from his influence upon being defeated.
During the third year, when the Academy had been transported to another dimension, she protects the school with other students from monsters while Jaden Yuki and Jesse Anderson go to the Gecko submarine to get medicine for Blair Flannigan. Later, she joins Jaden to search for Jesse in the second alternate universe, but she and several other of Jaden's friends are captured by Brron, the King of the alternate universe, and are all sacrificed and sent to the stars in an attempt to create the Super Polymerization Spell card, or so Jaden thinks, as they turn out to be alive, but trapped in another dimension.
During their graduation ceremony, Alexis and the others leave personal messages for Jaden in his bag, with Alexis's message asking Jaden if they can meet again somewhere.
Bastion Misawa / Daichi Misawa (三沢大地 Misawa Daichi?)
Voiced by: Yūki Masuda (Japanese), Eric Stuart (English)
Bastion Misawa is a duelist residing in Ra Yellow. He is regarded as a dueling genius, possessing six carefully calculated decks for each Monster attribute; he claims that a single carelessly added card can throw of their balance. At the end of season three, he stays behind in an alternate dimension to help out its inhabitants. In both the manga and anime, Bastion is shown to research those he seeks to duel to devise strategies to use against them; in both cases, he found a way to seal Polymerazation to keep Jaden from Fusion Summoning stronger Elemental Heroes. In the manga, Bastion is shown to use a Yokai deck (the cards were later made into real life ones, labeled as Zombie instead of Fiend).
Zane Truesdale / Ryo Marufuji (丸藤亮 Marufuji Ryō?)
Voiced by: Takeshi Maeda (Japanese), Scottie Ray (English)
Zane Truesdale is a strong duelist and Syrus' older brother. As a third year Obelisk Blue student at the start of the series, he was one of the most respected duelists in Duel Academy. However, when he loses in a duel against Aster Phoenix following his graduation, he starts participating in underground duels and takes on a more aggressive personality, earning him the name "Kaiser" in the Japanese version. However, all the underground duels, in which he battles using shock collars, causes his heart to become weak. He uses a Cyber Dragon deck which he later passes on to Syrus. In Season 2, he starts using a Cyber Dark Deck to fit his new aggressive nature.
Vellian Crowler, Ph.D. / Professor Cronos de Medici (クロノス・デ・メディチ Kuronosu de Medichi?)
Voiced by: Hiroshi Shimizu (Japanese), Sean Schemmel (English)
Vellian Crowler is one of the teachers at Duel Academy, who hopes to get high up in the ranks of the school. Crowler was defeated by Jaden during the latter's entrance exam to attend into Duel Academy. This earned Jaden Crowler's ire, and Crowler became determined to either show up or expel Jaden, though all his attempts only humiliated him (and his pawns) while making Jaden look better and better. Crowler grows throughout the series to appreciate all his students and in turn be respected for his noble actions.
Crowler plays an Ancient Gear (Dark Medieval (暗黒の中世 Ankoku no Chyūsei?)) in the Japanese version deck composed largely, as namesake implies, of Ancient Gear (Antique Gear (古代の機械 (アンティーク・ギア) Anteīku Gia?)) in the Japanese version cards. The majority of his monsters have the ability to prevent an opponent from activating Spell and Trap Cards until the end of the Damage Step. Crowler often employs various methods to speed up the summoning of his signature card, Ancient Gear Golem, such as summoning (then subsequently sacrificing) the Trojan Horse card, whose special ability allows it to be counted as a double sacrifice whenever Crowler summons a high-level Earth-attribute monster. His strongest monster is the Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem which requires one Ancient Gear Golem and two other Ancient Gear monsters, when its destroyed you can special summon one Ancient Gear Golem from the graveyard.
Lyman Banner / Daitokuji-sensei (大徳寺先生?)
Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi (Japanese), Wayne Grayson (English)
Lyman Banner is one of Jaden's tutors in Duel Academy who, in the Japanese version, often speaks with a 'nyaa' at the end of his sentences. It is later revealed to be an alchemist who used a homunculus body to prolong his life while he joined the Shadow Riders in order to seek out the Philosopher's Stone. When he is defeated by Jaden, his body dissolves into dust, but his spirit remains with Jaden, offering him advice whenever possible.

Voiced by: Akira Ishida, Asako Yoshida (young) (Japanese), Pete Zarustica (English)
Aster Phoenix is a talented duelist who enters Duel Academy during the second season.

Tyranno plays a Dinosaur deck, relying on summoning high-level monsters quickly, such as Black Tyranno and Ultimate Tyranno. Tyranno does so using a various assortment of cards, including New Ultra Evolution and Ultra Evolution. Several of his cards allow him to take advantage of his opponents placing their monsters in defense position, including Black Tyranno along with Dark Driceratops.
Atticus Rhodes / Fubuki Tenjoin (天上院吹雪 Tenjōin Fubuki?)
Voiced by: Koji Yusa (Japanese), Jason Griffith (English)

Voiced by: Naoya Iwahashi (Japanese), Tom Wayland (English)
Jim is introduced in the third season. When he was younger he saved his crocodile named Shirley. Apparently his right eye was damaged in the process, and a medicine man gave him the Eye of Oricalcum as a replacement. Jim keeps this eye bandaged up. This power allows him to see peoples' true nature. He uses his power to try to free Jaden from the Supreme King but fails and winds up getting sent to the stars and is later rescued. He duels using a fossil deck and his duel disk resembles a boomerang.
Adrian Gecko / Amon Garam (アモン・ガラム Amon Garamu?)
Voiced by: Saichouya, Saori Terai (young) (Japanese), Darren Dunstan (English)
Adrian Gecko is a new student hailing from East Academy who enters Duel Academy in the third year. For most of his life he has always put the needs of others ahead of himself.

Blair Flannigan / Rei Saotome (早乙女レイ Saotome Rei?)
Voiced by: Eri Sendai (Japanese), Liza Jacqueline (English)
Blair Flannigan was initially a minor character appearing in a stand-alone episode during the first season, who wanted to enrol into Duel Academy despite being too young. She joins the central cast at the beginning of the third after proving her worth as a duelist. Blair in the first season had a crush on Zane Truesdale, but later turns her affections over to Jaden. Blair uses a deck of girls to sway her opponent's male monsters in the first season and later uses a deck of "Egg" monsters that have monsters such as Mystic Egg and Mystic Dragon.

Antagonist groups[edit]

Shadow Riders[edit]

The Shadow Riders, known as the Seven Stars Assassins (セブンスターズ刺客 Sebunsutāzu Shikaku?) in the original Japanese language version, are composed of seven duelists and their leader of varying origins and backgrounds who each have their own agendas. The Shadow Riders serve as the main antagonists of the series' first season, intent on resurrecting the Sacred Beasts.

Kagemaru (影丸?)
Voiced by: Nobutoshi Canna (younger), Mugihito (older) (Japanese), Marc Thompson (younger), David Wills (English)
Kagemaru is the leader of the Shadow Riders and former superintendent of Duel Academy. The "Kage" portion of his name is derived from the Japanese word "kage" (影), meaning "shadow".
In horrible health, Kagemaru hoped to attain eternal youth by sacrificing Duel Monster spirits to the Sacred Beasts. During his Duel with Jaden, his youth gradually returned. After being defeated, however, he returned to his aged state. He then asked forgiveness and promised to renounce his former ways, carried off to the hospital by helicopter. He appears again as his younger self in episode 84.
Kagemaru plays a Sacred Beast deck. He carries a basic Fiend deck to support Raviel, and plenty of Spell and Trap Cards to support Uria and Hamon.
Nightshroud / Darkness (ダークネス Dākunesu?)
Voiced by: Hozumi Gōda, Kouji Yusa (Atticus) (Japanese), Jason Griffith (English)
Nightshroud is the first Shadow Rider. But in reality, Nightshroud is an entity of unknown origin tied to the darkness itself and the final antagonist in the series. He entered the body of Atticus Rhodes and took control. Nightshroud is voiced by Hozumi Gōda in the Japanese version. While possessing Atticus' body, Nightshroud is voiced by Jason Griffith in the English version, while Kouji Yusa takes the role in the Japanese version.
Being the owner of the other half of the Shadow Charm pendant in Jaden's possession, Nightshroud sets a Shadow Game for both of them where the loser has his soul sealed in a card. When defeated, Nightshroud's soul (represented by his mask) is sealed away, and Atticus is freed.
During the GX Tournament, Atticus uses Nightshroud's deck in hopes of convincing his friend, Zane Truesdale, that the dark path taken by a duelist is a terrible course. As a result, Nightshroud's influence (that lay dormant within his cards) is once again able to take control of Atticus, only to be banished following his defeat.
In the fourth season, Atticus again uses Nightshroud's deck to duel Jaden, revealing he still has nightmares about his alter-ego. During the duel, Atticus remembers that one of the missing students at the academy, Yusuke Fujiwara, was the original host of Nightshroud and before he vanished, he made Atticus into a temporary host for Nightshroud to inhabit. But Nightshroud eventually returns in the body of Fujiwara, and though he loses to Atticus in a one-on-one duel, he cheats reversing time and preventing Atticus from playing Red-Eyes Burn. But after losing to Jaden when he and Jesse double teamed Fujiwara, Nightshroud left his vessel and duels Jaden in a match with the world at stake. Jaden reverses all of Nightshroud's evil doings and finally destroys him. Though beaten, Nightshroud boasts that as long there's darkness in humans, he would return, but Jaden counters by claiming that as long as there are bonds between humans, Nightshroud has been sealed. In his final duel, Nightshroud is portrayed as megalomaniac or simply insane, once he claims he is God and the Savior.
Nightshroud, while possessing Atticus, plays a Red-Eyes Darkness Dragon deck, which focuses on quickly summoning the eponymous card and strengthening it by placing a large number of Dragon-type monsters in his Graveyard. Once within the body of Fujiwara, Nightshroud uses a Clear deck which shuts down the opponent's strategies based on the attributes of the monsters they summon. Once without a host, Nightshroud uses his personal Darkness deck, which controls the field through its "Darkness" field spell card.
Camula (カミューラ Kamyūra?)
Voiced by: Kanako Irie (Japanese), Bella Hudson (English)
Camula is the second Shadow Rider. Her name is derived from the title of Joseph Sheridan le Fanu's novel, Carmilla.
A vampire, Camula is very serious when it comes to dueling, as she hopes to revive her race from its destruction by the people of Medieval Times. She had been asleep within her coffin until Kagemaru uncovered it and invited her to join the Shadow Riders. She captures the souls of her opponents following their losses within dolls to fuel her cause, and uses the Shadow Charm strangler around her neck to bet the souls of others in conjunction with the Shadow Game-exclusive Illusion Gate to ensure victory. She manages to obtain the keys of Crowler and Zane, but during her Duel with Jaden, her Shadow Charm's power is negated by the completed item that Jaden possesses. Out of self-confidence, Camula places her own soul on the line, and it is dragged into the gate after she loses, leaving her body empty and turning it to dust.
Camula plays a Vampire deck. Several of her monsters (such as Zombie Werewolf and Vampire Bat) can feint revival by either summoning or discarding additional copies of themselves when destroyed through battle. Camula is also able to combine the recursion ability of Vampire Genesis with Genesis Crisis to repetitively raise her undead army from the grave.
Tania / Amazoness Tania (アマゾネス・タニヤ Amazonesu Taniya?)
Voiced by: Kazue Komiya (Japanese), Alyson Johnson (English)
Tania is the third Shadow Rider.
A white tiger that assumes human form with her Shadow Charm gauntlet to find a worthy duelist to be her husband, Tania travels with another tiger named Bass, who resembles the Amazoness Tiger. She falls in love with Bastion Misawa, and after some sweet talking and showing off her amazing dueling skills, defeats him and makes him her bridegroom for a short time until she grows tired of him. Tania then fights Jaden in a soul match with the effect of Amazon Arena, and eventually resumes her true form and runs off. She appears before Jaden and his group during the third year as her human self, having been sucked into the second alternate dimension they visit since their last meeting. She serves as their guide through the first town they encounter, and stays behind with Bastion after Jaden liberates it.
Tania's Amazoness cards, based on the Amazons of Greek mythology, are divided into two decks: Courage and Knowledge (the former focusing on offense with more damage inflicted via Amazoness Arena, while the latter is more based on turning the opponent's battle strategies against them). She uses the Knowledge deck against Bastion, and the Courage deck against Jaden.
Don Zaloog (首領-ザルーグ Shuryō Zarūgu?)
Voiced by: Taiten Kusunoki (Japanese), Darren Dunstan (English)
Don Zaloog is the fourth Shadow Rider.
Zaloog is actually a Duel Monster spirit brought to life by the power of the Shadow Charm eyepatch he wears. He is also the leader of the band of thieves known as the Dark Scorpion Gang (Black Scorpion Graverobber Gang (黒サソリ盗掘団 Kurosasori Tōkutsu-dan?) in the original Japanese language version), who were also brought to life by the item. He masquerades as a detective named Detective Zaloog (Police Inspector Manguer), sent to assist the students in hiding the remaining Spirit Keys, while his posse work on taking the keys incognito. However, since they fail to obtain the keys in a Duel, they are unable to unlock the Spirit Gate of the Sacred Beasts. When Zaloog and his gang are discovered, he and Chazz Princeton duel with all the remaining keys on the line. In the end, he and his cohorts are defeated, and the power of his Shadow Charm is nullified. After reverting to their spirit forms, the Dark Scorpions join the many weak monsters in Chazz's care, to the young duelist's annoyance.
Zaloog plays a Dark Scorpion deck, themed on bringing together the members of the Dark Scorpion Gang and triggering their five effects in unison, with support from cards such as Mustering of the Dark Scorpions and Dark Scorpion Combination. Like his card, however, in the English anime, he wields twin swords and in the Japanese version, he wields guns.
Abidos / Abidos the Third (アビドス3世 Abidosu San-sei?)
Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese), Darren Dunstan (English)
Abidos is the fifth Shadow Rider. His name is derived from the name of the ancient Egyptian city, Abydos.
An ancient pharaoh who never lost a single Duel, Abidos regained physical form through the powers of the Shadow Charm headband he wears. With an army of mummies, Abidos gathers Jaden and company on his celestial yacht for a Duel. During the Duel with Jaden, Abidos realizes that the only reason he kept winning was because his opponents always lost on purpose, simply because he was pharaoh. Jaden, however, manages to give Abidos a real Duel in which the opponent actually tries to win. Satisfied with his defeat, Abidos departs for the afterlife, giving Jaden his Shadow Charm, the latter making a promise to meet him again in one-hundred years time, presuming that Jaden will be dead within that time.
Abidos plays a Servants of the Pharaoh deck, themed on gathering three Sarcophagus cards to summon Spirit of the Pharaoh.
Titan (タイタン Taitan?)
Voiced by: Norio Wakamoto (Japanese), Eric Stuart (English)
Titan is the sixth Shadow Rider.
A hitman originally hired by Crowler to deal with Jaden, Titan captured Alexis Rhodes to force Jaden into a Duel for her life. Despite his reputation of possessing the power of a Millennium Item, the "Millennium Item" turned out to be a fake Millennium Puzzle, and Titan used various tricks to mimic a Shadow Game. He became the victim of a real Shadow Duel, however, but was saved by Kagemaru, wearing a Shadow Charm mask to bind him to the real world. Taking advantage of Alexis' desire to restore her brother's memories, Titan challenges her in the abandoned dorm where they first met. He is ultimately pulled back into the pits of darkness when he is defeated.
Titan plays an Archfiend (Demon) deck, composed largely of monsters based on chess pieces, in his first encounter with Jaden, which is later supported by Fiend Bullfighter (Demon's Matador) cards in his Duel with Alexis; this last deck is inspired by Spanish traditions with names related to bullfighting, such as "Picador", "Matador" and "Banderillero".
Amnael (アムナエル Amunaeru?)
Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi (Japanese), Wayne Grayson (English)
Amnael is the seventh and final Shadow Rider.
A homunculus inhabited by Lyman Banner's soul. Unable to find Banner's Cat, Pharaoh, Alexis, Chazz, Jaden and the others start looking for him. While looking, Amnael challenges and defeats both Chazz Princeton and Alexis Rhodes in a duel, who then get sucked into Amnael's book as a result. Jaden gets lead to the abandoned dorm where he defeated Titan. There he finds a mummified body that resembles Banner, and Amnael who later reveals himself to be the spirit of Banner. Both Amnael and Jaden duel which results in Jadens victory. After giving Jaden his Emerald Tablet which previously held his Shadow Charm, Banner is reduced to dust along with his original mummified body. His spirit, however, lives on in the stomach of his cat, Pharaoh. His appearance is seen when the cat is clueless causing its body to revieve Banner's spirit for a short amount of time.

Society of Light[edit]

The Society of Light (光の結社 Hikari no Kessha?) is a cult led by the alien-influenced Sartorius, the Society of Light's legion of followers dedicate themselves to worshipping the Light of Destruction, and serve as the main antagonists of the series' second season, intent on cleansing the Earth of its deficiencies.

Sartorius, known as Takuma Saiou (斎王琢磨 Saiō Takuma?) in the original Japanese language version, is a fortune-teller with dual personalities under the influence of an alien force. Sartorius serves as the main antagonist of the series' second season, poised to remake the world in the image most befitting the extraterrestrial radiance within him.
Lorenzo / Ryusei Gin (銀流星 Gin Ryūsei?)
Voiced by: Kazuhiro Shindou (Japanese), Anthony Salerno (English)
Lorenzo is the champion of the "Shooting Game" arcade game. His name in the original version means "silver meteor" when translated in Japanese order.
Lorenzo is employed by Alexis and Chazz to duel Jaden. Although he is defeated, he comes to understand his opponent's definition of a fun duel, but is punished by Sartorius for his failure. Leaving his hair stark white, Sartorius takes complete control of him and his future.
Lorenzo plays a B. E. S. (Giant Battleship (巨大戦艦 Kyodaisenkan?) in the original Japanese language version) deck. With the effect of Boss Rush, Lorenzo is able to continuously summon B.E.S. monsters as they are destroyed, causing extra damage with Cyber Summon Blaster. The flaw of this strategy, however, is that he is no longer able to summon in any other manner as long as Boss Rush remains in play.
The concept of Lorenzo's cards is derived from the Konami video game series, Gradius. The "Core" monsters are all based on signature Bosses from the games, and the term Boss rush is derived from a gameplay mode commonly found in the series.
In the English dub, he speaks in a Italian accent.
Princess Rose (プリンセス・ローズ Purinsesu Rōzu?)
Voiced by: Hiroko Kasahara (Japanese), Veronica Taylor (English)
Princess Rose is a representative selected by Sartorius to duel Jaden in his place.
Rose claims to have the ability to see Duel Monster spirits (manifested as three "princes" named Jeffrey, Roosevelt and Percival in the English version), but others do not believe her. Jaden, however, notices the spirit of a frog prince watching over her following their Duel.
Rose plays a Frog deck. Through the effects of her trump card Des Frog, as well as T.A.D.P.O.L.E., Rose is able to summon three copies of the former relatively quickly. With her assault team in play, she is able to neutralize all threats and constantly strengthen her monsters with various other cards.
In the English dub, she speaks with a Valley girl accent.
Bob "Game Show" Banter / Tsugio Kanda (神田次男 Kanda Tsugio?)
Voiced by: Ryo Kubota (Japanese), Matthew Charles (English)
Bob Banter is the Quiz King who has feelings for Alexis. His name in the English version is a pun on the name of Bob Barker.
Saddened by the fact that Alexis considers him uninteresting (in the Japanese version, she instead never remembers his name), Bob duels Jaden in hopes of impressing her.
Bob plays a Game Show (Quiz) deck, which sets up the Duel as a game show, with Bob as the host. The majority of his monsters possess abilities that activate when they are flipped face-up, causing damage to opponent if he is unable to answer a posed question correctly, or inflicting damage to himself if he does answer correctly. Once his Quiz Panels are depleted, the summoning of Quizzer Panel 9 allows Bob to return all of them to his deck for another round.
In the English version he makes references to numerous existing game shows including The Price is Right, Whammy!, and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?.
Howard X Miller / X (エックス Ekkusu?)
Voiced by: Yoshitada Otsuka (Japanese), Ted Lewis (English)
Howard X Miller is Sartorius' lawyer. His name is meant to be a pun in English, as "mill" (a term borrowed from Magic: The Gathering) denotes a direct disruption of a player's deck.
As a child, X dreamed of becoming a pastry chef, but instead grew up to become an attorney. In the Japanese version, he is instead a Pro League duelist associated with the Society of Light whose ranking is greater than Aster's. He successfully reduced the cards in Jaden's deck to zero, but lost when Jaden was unable to draw due to the effect of the Neo-Spacian Glow Moss he had summoned on X's field, causing him to discard his deck.
X plays a Deck Destruction deck. His strategy relies primarily on Monster Register, a card that, under normal circumstances would effectively demolish the decks of both players. X, however, cleverly protects himself with the ability of Trap Sluzer, while rendering himself almost untouchable with a wide array of Spells and Traps.
Prince Ojin I (オージーン王子 Ōjīn Ōji?)
Voiced by: Hisayoshi Suganuma (Japanese), Darren Dunstan (English)
Prince Ojin is a professional duelist and celebrity from Misgarth. His name is meant to be a pun, as "ōjin" is the Japanese word for "royal person".
Ojin dueled against Sartorius in the GX tournament. He gloated that he would defeat Sartorius with one attack, but was himself defeated before Sartorius' first turn even came. Upon his defeat, he fell under Sartorius' influence and provided him with the control switch to his mind control satellite. He returns later in the tournament to retrieve one of the switch's keys given to Jaden by Sartorius' good personality, but fails despite aid from the Dark Light. While Jaden and Sartorius face one another in their final Duel, Ojin falls under Sartorius' control once again, and is successful in arming the satellite.
Ojin plays a Satellite deck. His strategic preference involves devoting all his resources to performing a "One Turn Kill" with Satellite Cannon. In the case that this manoeuvre fails, he is also able to fuse three copies of the said monster together to summon Satellite Laser Balsam by activating Debris Station for a final wave of destruction.
Dr. Eisenstein / Dr. Albert Zweinstein (アルバート・ツバインスタイン博士 Arubāto Tsubainshutain Hakase?)
Voiced by: Takeshi Aono (Japanese), Sean Schemmel (English)
Dr. Eisenstein is a nine-time Nobel Award-winning German physicist, with an IQ of 173, specialized in duel physics. His name is a pun on the name of Albert Einstein. Eisenstein arrives at Duel Academy under Prince Ojin's request, and is sent by Sartorius to eliminate Jaden and retrieve his key to the mind control satellite, though his underestimation of the young duelist's tactics results in his failure. Bastion idolizes him for his unified theory of the world.
Sarina / Mizuchi Saiou (斎王美寿知 Saiō Mizuchi?)
Voiced by: Tomo Sakurai (Japanese), Bella Hudson (English)
Sarina is Sartorius' younger sister.
A miko, Sarina granted her assassins special abilities with her own powers, and erected a barrier around Domino City that prevented Duel Monster spirits from leaving the boundary while Frost and Thunder dueled Tyranno and Syrus. After disposing of her subordinates, she challenged Aster and Jaden to a Tag Duel in KaibaLand's virtual system, but was ultimately defeated. Sarina then revealed that she wished to save her brother from the influence of an evil aura housed in a Hero card that was shown to him when they were younger. In a final act of gratitude, she helped those trapped within the virtual world to escape, but was left behind in the collapsing program, digitizing herself to act as her brother's "guardian". While no mention of it is made in the English adaptation, the Japanese version further includes a promise by Sugoroku Mutou to speak with Seto Kaiba in hopes of restoring her consciousness. Sarina returns near the end of the second year, contributing to the mind control satellite's end. She is flown in to Duel Academy via helicopter by Kaiba's associates, and reunited with her brother.
Sarina plays a Mirror deck. Each of her Silver Spirit (Shikigami (式神?) in the original Japanese language version) monsters, is either sent to the Graveyard to activate Mirror Bind, or to use as fodder for Full Moon Mirror. Once a collection of ten counters has collected on the latter, she is able to play Infinite Fiend Mirror to summon nine copies of her powerful Dark Creator (based on an illustration by Toshiki Nakayama (中山俊希 Nakayama Toshiki?) submitted for a card illustration contest held earlier during the series) to the field. The concept of Sarina's cards is derived from onmyōdō, and she herself takes on the role of an onmyōji during episodes in which she makes appearances.
In Italian version she's called Sabrina.
The Light Brigade, known as the Four Monarchs (四帝 Yon Tei?) in the original Japanese language version, is a group of assassins in Sarina's service.
  1. Thunder, known as Ikazuchimaru (雷丸?) in the original Japanese language version (voiced by Jamie McGonnigal / Takanori Oyama): The "Ikazuchi" portion of the his name in the Japanese version is derived from the word "ikazuchi" (雷), meaning "lightning".

Martin Empire[edit]

Yubel (ユベル Yuberu?)
Voiced by: Hiromi Tsuru (Japanese), Cassandra Morris (English)
Yubel is a duel spirit that is owned by Jaden and the true antagonist of season 3. When Jaden was a child, Yubel was protective of him and caused anyone to come near him to fall into a coma. Jaden had sent Yubel into a capsule which was fired into space in hopes of it coming in contact with the Darkness of Justice in order to cure it of its protectiveness. However the capsule that Yubel was in became affected by the Light of Destruction driving it insane and causing it to begin to believe that love and suffering are the same thing. When it returned to Earth, Yubel was heavily damaged to the point where her hand was the only thing left of it. Yubel met Professor Viper and made a deal with him that if he could gather enough energy to revive its body it would bring his dead son back to life. However Yubel used Viper to her own ends and after getting what it wanted it killed Viper. Yubel would possess Marcel's body and afterwards Jesse Anderson's body all to show Jaden how much she loves him through the pain her actions bring to him. She carries a pathological hatred for Jaden's friends and loved ones, out of the belief that they stole him from her. In the end, after being defeated in a duel with Jaden, he would merge his soul with Yubel's, bringing it peace. Yubel plays a fiend/plant deck that featured its own card.
Marcel Bonaparte / Martin Kanou (加納マルタン Kanō Marutan?)
Voiced by: Asako Yoshida (Japanese), Sebastian Arcelus (English)
Marcel is a Ra-Yellow student and the son of Jean Louis Bonaparte. Marcel was always depressed at the sight of his parents fighting all the time and he became even more depressed when his father left home, leaving him with his mother. Marcel was possessed by Yubel after it sensed how he suffered. However he would be freed from its control after Yubel gained enough energy to sustain its body and didn't need him anymore. Under Yubel's control, Marcel played a Exodia themed deck and after gaining the Sacred Beast cards switched to a new deck that focuses on them.
In the English dub, Marcel has a French accent. When he is possessed by Yubel he loses this accent leading to a running gag where whenever someone talks to him they ask what happened to his accent.
Professor Viper / Professor Cobra (プロフェッサー・コブラ Purofessā Kobura?)
Voiced by: Masaya Takatsuka (Japanese), Sean Schemmel (English)
Professor Viper was a major antagonist. During a mission with his comrades, he found a baby boy all by its lonesome. When Viper went after the baby his comrades went in another direction and got blown up by a bomb (captured in the English version). Believing the baby saved his life, Viper vowed to raise him as if he were his own. Naming the boy Pierce (called Rick in the Japanese version), Viper adopted and raised him. One day Viper gave his son a deck of Duel Monster cards as a present but they were blown away by the wind. When Pierce went after them he was hit by an on-coming truck and was killed (in the English version Pierce was said to have died of a diesase). In another mission Viper encountered Yubel, who sensed the darkness in his heart, offered to bring Pierce back to life if Viper were to gather enough energy to revive it to which Viper agreed to do. Viper entered Duel Academy a couple of years later and gave Bio-Bands (Death-Belts in the Japanese version) to the students of the academy in hopes that the energy they produced from their duels would be enough to revive Yubel. Viper would eventually duel Jaden Yuki and lose to him but the energy from that duel did revive Yubel. However Yubel double crossed Viper and instead of bringing Pierce back to life it cast Viper in a illusion and made him believe his son never died. Viper walked off the arena that he and Jaden were dueling on and fell to his death. Professor Viper played a snake themed deck.

Minor Characters[edit]

The following is a list of minor characters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime and manga series.

Character appearances are documented on the basis of relevance to plot, therefore flashbacks and other momentary glimpses of characters outside their introductory episodes are not included.

All seasons[edit]

Duel Monsters[edit]

Several Duel Monster spirits not directly linked to the main cast appear throughout the series.

  1. Alien of Light (光の宇宙人 Hikari no Uchiujin?) (voiced by Wayne Grayson / Takahiro Hirano): Alien of Light's Duel with Jaden, arranged by Neo-Spacian Aqua Dolphin, serves as a test of the boy's abilities to wield the powers of darkness. It plays a Different Dimension deck, primarily centered around Candelato, the Beast of Light. Although the card prevents its controller from drawing any additional cards during the Draw Phase, the Alien of Light takes advantage of its simple summoning conditions as a means of brute force.
  2. Dark Magician Girl (Blamagigirl (ブラマジガール Buramajigāru?) in the original Japanese language version) (voiced by Bella Hudson / Yuki Nakao): A Duel Spirit towards whom Syrus Truesdale harbors feelings for, Dark Magician Girl surfaces during a school-wide festival to duel with Jaden. She plays Spellcaster deck, which centers around her own card (much like Yubel) and its related support.
  3. Dark World (暗黒界 Ankokukai?): A dictatorship of legendary monsters hailing from the world of the humans trapped in the third alternate dimension that Jaden and his companions visit. Its army is composed of numerous advisors and foot soldiers, and is headed by Dark World's king, Brron. None prevailed against Jaden.
  4. Freed (フリード Furīdo?) (voiced by Yūji Kishi): The captain of the Steel Knight army which protects the humans trapped in the third alternate dimension that Jaden and his companions visit, including the daughter and son of one of his battalion, Lars. He leads the fight against the Dark World monsters, and sacrifices himself to give Jaden a fighting chance against its knight, Zure.
  5. Gravekeeper's Chief (墓守の長 Hakamori no Chō?) (voiced by Tom Souhrada / Bin Shimada): The leader of the Gravekeeper's who demands that all intruders seen as tomb robbers be buried alive. While searching for his friends in another world, Jaden meets a Gravekeeper's Assailant named Yasmin (Sara (サラ?) in the original Japanese language version) (voiced by Lisa Ortiz / Yūko Mizutani), who rescues him from harm, and Jaden develops a little crush on her, though he is ultimately captured and forced to duel the Chief in a Shadow Duel. He plays a Gravekeeper deck, which focuses on the wide range of abilities available with his "Gravekeeper's" cards, as well as preventing both players from activating cards that interact with the Graveyard.
  6. Supreme King advisors: consisting of Skilled White Magician, Skilled Dark Magician, Skull Knight, Chaos Sorcerer, and Guardian Baou, they serve as henchman to Jaden while under the guise of Supreme King. All but Baou are destroyed prior to Jaden's defeat, and Baou is dispatched by Jaden himself afterwards.
  7. Harpie's Brother (バードマン Bādoman?, Birdman in the original Japanese language version) (voiced by Akio Suyama): A winged warrior who guards the power generator in the second alternate dimension that Jaden and his companions visit. He plays a Winged-Beast deck, which concentrates on the Direct Damage capabilities of Simorgh, Bird of Divinity and reflects his world's view that lower-level monsters are inferior to those of greater rank.
  8. Jinzo (Android -Psycho Shocker- (人造人間 サイコショッカー Jinzo Ningen Saiko Shōkā?) in the original Japanese language version) (voiced by Sean Schemmel / Satoshi Tsuruoka): An evil Duel Spirit who seeks to become a real person, Jinzo takes the souls of those who summon him. This may be the case because Jinzo is a Dark-attribute monster. A group of three students including Torrey (Takadera (高寺?) in the original Japanese language version) unwittingly call him forth, but was defeated by Jaden in a Shadow Duel and forced to give up his ambition. He plays a Psycho deck, which includes spirit-related cards in addition to himself as a trump card.
  9. Kaibaman (Friend of Justice - Kaibaman (正義の味方 カイバーマン Seigi no Mikata Kaibāman?) in the original Japanese language version) (voiced by Eric Stuart / Kenijirou Tsuda): A monster modeled after Seto Kaiba, Kaibaman duels and defeats Jaden after he and his friends happen upon the Duel Monsters world. He intended to quell Jaden's worries regarding Shadow Duels, and thus sarcastically threw around the possibility that he himself may have been initiating such a battle with Jaden. He plays Seto Kaiba's deck, complete with his three legendary Blue-Eyes White Dragon cards. The card that represents himself can be sacrificed to Special Summon a Blue Eyes from his hand.
  10. Honest - An angel who belongs to Fujiwara Yusuke, before being put away in a box when Fujiwara goes to the darkness. At the beginning of Season 4, he disguises himself as Fujiwara and uses his powers to manipulate the memories of the others into thinking he's been there all along. However, Jaden's powers show his true form, and Honest later resides inside Jaden's body until he and Jesse face Fujiwara, in which Honest returns to Fujiwara's side following his defeat.

Following Duel Academy's arrival in an alternate dimension, he encourages the students to save his son Marcel from the Duel Spirit Yubel.

Although the characters do not recognize him, Satyr points out through a series of flashbacks that he had been a background character in several episodes in the first season as an in-joke about his character not being noticed.

Belowski plays a Mokey Mokey (Moke Moke) deck. With the Spell Card Mokey Mokey Smackdown in play, Belowski's naturally weak Mokey Mokey monsters are able to pose a formidable threat for his opponents. By combining this with Human-Wave Tactics, Belowski is able to keep up a supply of monsters as fodder to trigger Smackdown's effect, albeit at the cost of his own Life Points.

Despite its possession, Dimitri is defeated by Jaden as he lacked the same heart that Yugi put into creating his deck.
In the English version, Dimitri refers to his Spell Cards as "Magic Cards", as this was the term used in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series before the revised printing format of the TCG took effect.

While the whereabouts of his physical body after the Duel is explained as being absorbed by Plasma (showing Doctor Collector's face on the left wing of Plasma during the confrontation between The D and Aster Phoenix) in the English version, the fire caused by the Ultimate Destiny Card in the Pro League stadium is linked to his death in the Japanese version, though DD believes it was in fact the shock of being defeated that proved fatal.
