Fulfilling a lifetime ambition, they set off down the east coast from Lowestoft in the Spring, heading down the UK coast and eventually onto their final destination in Southern Spain.

A cruise that allowed them to fully appreciate the fabulous French Canals, while continuously learning new valuable boating skills. The 32 Sedan made its international debut at the London Boat Show in January , and has gone on to be one of the most successful Haines models to date.

In the early hours of Monday morning the team from Haines and Norfolk Yacht Agency returned to Norfolk, a little tired and weary but extremely enthused by what was another successful Southampton Boat Show. The Haines 32 Sedan model had sold exceptionally well in the weeks leading up to the show, with 4 craft sold in a little over 3 weeks.

This made it an obvious decision to exhibit this model at the popular South Coast Show. An excellent review in the October edition of Motor Boat Monthly magazine resulted in many visitors making a beeline straight for the Haines berth on the water.

Despite the weather being slightly undecided as to whether the summer has ended, or is still wanting to remain with us, the queues frequently formed with visitors eager to take a closer look onboard.

Presenting extremely well on its side on berth in the relaxed marina environment, the visitors onboard were certainly impressed by the high standard of the Haines finish and the fine attention to detail. Interest in the 32 Sedan offshore model, ideal for South Coast cruising was also frequent, along with the soon to be released new Haines aft cabin model.

Designs have now been made for a new offshore planing version of the popular Haines 32 Sedan model. The new Andrew Wolstenholme designed hull will deliver an excellent offshore performance while retaining the appealing characteristics of the original river and estuary model. Built to full category B specification, capable of speeds in excess of 20 knots, and incorporating an array of practical features. The new 32 Sedan Offshore will satisfy the needs of boaters wishing to explore further afield in the safety and comfort of this stylish and spacious 32 foot cruiser.

Plans for this latest development have been in place since the launch of the original Haines 32 Sedan river and estuary cruiser, but such has been the far reaching appeal and increased demand that this development has been brought forward. Offered with single or twin engine installation, Haines UK agents Norfolk Yacht Agency have placed an order for their first with the single Yanmar hp engine option, available for delivery in June Haines Marine and the sales team from Norfolk Yacht Agency return to the Southampton boat show in September displaying the latest Haines 32 Sedan model.

Making its south coast debut, the 32 Sedan can be found on the water on berth M Such has been the demand for this new Haines model, that having an unsold boat available for MBM to fully test has been a challenge. The Norfolk Broads was again the destination, this time on the Southern Broads, departing the moorings from Brundall. Nick enjoyed the full day recording the boats finest details, as well as testing the boats performance and handling.

The full MBM Haines 32 Sedan test report will be in the magazine's October edition, and also look out for video footage of a walkthrough the boats interior and with it on the water. The latest 32 Sedan, with its new restyled galley and other new added features, was the star of the show. Presenting itself well, with its interior and dressings beautifully styled by Rebecca Fraser.

Also on show and capturing the imagination of many guests was the latest Haines 42 Elegance, which under the summer sun and with its large aft raised deck area, displayed exactly what you could expect when cruising on this style of motor cruiser. The on show completed the Haines all star line-up, and was gratefully exhibited with the permission of its proud owner.

The hardworking team at the Water's Edge ensured that all guests were looked after as the sun continued to shine into the early evening. For those wishing to get onboard and view some of the latest craft in the Haines range there is still an opportunity. There are still a few places left for anyone wishing to attend the Haines and NYA event to be held in the picturesque location of the Water's Edge in Bramerton Woods End, situated on the banks of the River Yare.

This event is invitation only, and if you wish attend please contact louise nya. The glorious weather continued as the Motor Boats Monthly team took to the water recently to review the Haines 42 Elegance. MBM editor, Carl Richardson, seized the opportunity to get his hands on this spacious and elegant cruiser while enjoying the delights of the Norfolk Broads. Sunshine greeted them as they explored some the Northern Broads, taking in the views from the craft's vast aft deck.

Designed specifically for cruising UK inland and estuary waters, or the canals and lakes of Europe. The full Haines 42 Elegance review will be published shortly. Situated on the banks of the River Yare, approximately a 10 minute drive from Norwich, invited guests will get the opportunity to view the Haines Range on show on the water in this stunning picturesque location.

Should you wish to join us, please contact louise nya. Tours of the Haines factory are an excellent opportunity to see the high level of craftsmanship that goes into every Haines boat, and visits for interested individuals or groups can be arranged upon request.

Continuing to attract interest from customers based on a variety of European waterways is the popular Haines 32 Sedan. Now with five of this model craft in production at the Haines Norfolk factory, each with different specifications and tailored to each customers exact taste and style.

The 32 Sedan has continued to prove a real success since its official boatshow unveiling at London ExCel in January. Featuring a few changes and some subtle restyling, expect to see the latest display 32 Sedan model at Norfolk Yacht Agency available for viewing later in the summer.

Haines now offer a range of synthetic decking choices, traditionalists may prefer the teak effect with a standard black caulking, or some may choose teak effect with a cream caulking.

Also offered is this striking black effect, as fitted on a new Haines recently, with charcoal coloured decking and a light grey caulking. As the picture above shows, set against the black console, the overall effect looks stunning and delighted the new owners. Haines Marine have just completed the last of an eight boat production run for the German boat charter operation of Swiss based company Hapimag.

The lakes and rivers in Mecklenburg, Brandenburg and Berlin offer customers from all over Europe stunning scenery and plenty of cruising choices in these vast waterways. Haines' strong relationship as builder of Hapimag boats began in the mid 90's and seen the production of over 60 craft leave the Haines Norfolk factory all heading for destinations in France and Germany.

The wind blew, but sun shone as thousands of visitors young and old descended on the pretty Norfolk village. Taking the opportunity to get onboard and view the range of boats on show, throughout the day the queues formed on the Haines and Norfolk Yacht Agency stand as people waited eagerly for their chance to view the new Haines 42 Elegance and the Haines on display.

The two craft, one a boat designed for cruising inland waterways in the UK and Europe, the other a stunning all action offshore cruiser, demonstrated perfectly the build quality and accommodation provided throughout the Norfolk built Haines range of motor cruisers.

Children's entertainment was provided by a balloon modelling pirate and goodie bags were dispatched as the numbers grew on the stand. Later in afternoon the entrainment continued as guests on the stand enjoyed refreshments and the obligatory jazz band, as what proved to be a very worthwhile and hugely enjoyable day drew to close. For these loyal Haines customer's it represents their third Haines craft and incredibly for one Haines employee he has been involved in the build of all three.

Haines Marine boat builder Kevin Turner first met Mr and Mrs Newland in when he was part of the build team that completed their first Haines boat, a 35 foot model, which along with son Mark they used and enjoyed extensively on UK waters, the French Canals and on the Mediteranian. Impressed by the space provided on the Haines model and their appreciation of the enduring build quality of Haines boats, Mr and Mrs Newland decided to place an order for a third new boat. Although not intentionally planned, they were delighted to discover that the same hands that built their first and second boats were now crafting their latest new vessel.

Haines Marine are very much giving their full support to the latest date on your boat show calendar, the first ever Horning Boat Show. The iconic Norfolk village will be making the most of its riverside location to host the event on Saturday 4 th May. A range of attractions and entertainment are planned throughout the day, and the picturesque setting will without doubt draw in the crowds. Haines along with agents Norfolk Yacht Agency will be exhibiting the latest craft in the range, with the usual team on hand answer any of questions.

Haines are recognised internationally as leading builders and suppliers of charter craft to the European inland waterways. For the last 30 years, Haines have been regularly supplying boats to the largest fleet operators in France, Germany, Ireland and Italy.

New charter craft have recently been supplied to all corners of Europe ready for the start of the boating season. Featuring all modern day creature comforts, these craft often provide future boat owners with their first introduction to Haines motor boats.

Holidaying on the Canal du Midi in the south of France, cruising on the Lagoon of Venice, or enjoying the charm of the stunning Irish waterways can all be done aboard a Norfolk built Haines craft.

The launch of a new model is always going to capture the imagination of the boating media. First to get onboard to review the latest model in the Haines range was Anglia Afloat magazine. Highlighting the charms of this 32 foot river and estuary cruiser, from the quality of the boats finish to the appeal of the quiet smaller engine option.

Read the full Haines 32 Sedan boat test report in the latest edition of Anglia Afloat. The Haines and Norfolk Yacht Agency sales team returned to snowy Norfolk on Sunday night in high spirits, following one of the most successful and enjoyable London Boat Show's for many years.

A vibrant atmosphere was created by the new layout of the ExCel Show, and viewings of the Haines 32 Sedan on display were constant throughout the 9 days. Happens during Aki's rematch with Misty when a couple of mirrors around her are smashed. The Riding Dueling instructor, in the style of R. Lee Ermey of course. Tetu Ushio as well, when he's performing the final exams for the riding dueling license.

When Aki goes to get her Riding Duel license. Actually, outside of a bit of sabotage from the other testees, the "smashing" a duel with Ushio is part of the test. There are two big ones, both of which, interestingly, work as foreshadowing: Rex Godwin calls himself the fifth Signer in dub episode 26, then temporarily becomes exactly that in episode 62 , and Yusei says he has the Head of the Crimson Dragon in dub episode Although at the time he actually has the Tail, he gains the Head in episode The dub bizarrely cuts out the intro scene of episode 26, leaving fans to wonder where Yusei's Junk Warrior went, how his LP got reduced to and where Jack's 3 facedown cards came from.

Crow says in a one-off joke from the English version of episode 44 that Jaeger's monsters remind him of his fifth birthday party. This is impossible, since episode 52 reveals that Crow grew up alone on the streets; orphaned because of Zero Reverse, and had no friends until he was pretty clearly older than five.

Dub seems to imply that Dr. Fudo did, but then contradicts itself and says it was Rudger , just like the Japanese version - before skipping back to it being Dr. Because 4kids skipped the episodes after Placido and Yusei's all the way to Team Ragnarok's exposition episode, dub fans are left to wonder how did Jack acquire Scar Red Nova Dragon and where did Sherry disappear off to. At least the Hulu subs did some of the missing episodes, though they still don't have the Ark Cradle.

Skipping over the Ark Cradle, means that fans won't learn of Bruno's identity, history and everything that happens in the real Final Battle. Zone will just remain a mystery as well. Almost everyone and everything. With the exception of one 'u' in Yusei being left out, much like Yugi. Monsters, though it's not really their fault as the TCG people at Konami changed the names officially for the Western release.

Listed below are some examples, though the name changes are far too many to list. It is speculated that this was done was to avoid copyright troubles with the film Mad Max 2 , released in America as The Road Warrior.

A weird inversion of this trope occured as well. Perhaps most evident in Episode 31, where Carly tells Jack to "get back to the hotel" instead of telling him he can't be out on his own when he's barely healed. Also from Episode This line has absolutely nothing to do with the original Japanese, where Yusei simply asks Crow if he's all right after taking a direct hit from their opponents. The dub of Episode 72 plays up Sherry's duel with Yusei as a kind of metaphor for sex. Aki's musings over Yusei's interactions with Sherry also sound like jealousy.

Episode 93 has Trudge ask "Yusei, would it be okay if [Bruno] shacked up at your place just a little bit longer? Please note that this was deifinitely not in the Japanese version, and that although Jack crashed, he was still talking just fine.

There are also many, many non-sexual examples of this trope, far too many to list. It is Yu-Gi-Oh after all. Dude Looks Like a Lady: Except in the Latin American Variant where he's turned into a she. Dying Declaration of Love: Carly confesses her love to Jack right before she dies in his arms. This is removed from the dub, however. Not as bad as some other works, and more often than not played for laughs.

A Friend in Need: Also, Yusei to Kiryu, and Jack to Carly. The English dub of episode 13, when Yusei meets Rua and Ruka. It only lasts for one episode.

Guess how he gets it back. Lampshaded for several episodes, with Rua nicknaming Yusei "Mr. The first part of Yusei's stay in Neo-Domino, starting with his imprisonment and ending when he breaks his D-wheel out of Security, is absolutely full of this. How did that kid not suffer permanent brain damage? The dub DID give him amnesia as stated above, though. The Signer Dragons and their attributes. Yusei's Stardust Dragon Casting a Shadow: The only attribute not represented by a Signer Dragon.

Z-One takes this to the absolute maximum level, since Yusei had been dead for a good two centuries or so by his time period, he chose to impersonate Yusei by not only doing complete reconstructive surgery on himself to look like Yusei, but implanted a mental control device on himself that gave him Yusei's skills and personality.

The duel spirits in Ruka's deck qualifies and possibly D-Wheels themselves as they are powered by Momentum, which responds to people's hearts. The cause of Divine 's death. Say it with me, folks: More recently, "It Is Luquiring. This troper's guess would have to be along the lines of "Acquiring Fingerprint", but even then it would make that "It Is Acquiring". Apparently someone didn't realize the G is silent?

Well, to be fair, f- and h- sounds apparently have the same phonetic base in Japanese. Well Come to Crash Town! Episode 87 gives us a saloon with the wonderful name of "The Classy Ass". On at least one occasion, Jack's ace monster has been identified on Yusei's data-visor as "Red Damon's Doragon". A trap sprung by Rudger after Yusei defeats him sends him falling into the Old Momentum generator, and he ends up in a hellish place where he is assaulted by the spirits of everyone who was killed in Zero Reverse.

Fortunately for him, one of these spirits is his father, who helps him escape. Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Rudger and Rex are very close brothers, even though both are "evil" villains as the series progresses.

Jaeger might not be evil, but he's certainly not good, unless his family is concerned. He'll work for the villain, break into your home, steal your cup ramen, and cackle like an evil maniac, but he loves his wife and son more then anything.

Even the Guys Want Him: Everything's Better with Monkeys: Demak's deck, the yellow monkey Earthbound God, and the monkeys running around in skirts in the Duel Monsters Spirit World. Everything's Better with Rainbows: Momentum in general, some special effects during the duels. The Dark Signers are a Rainbow Motif.

After summoning the three polar gods in a non-duel Team Ragnorok activated the spell card " The Rainbow Bridge Bifrost" not to be confused with with the card "Rainbow Bridge Bifrost" , without the "The" to get Yusei and co up to the Arc Cradle.

Unlike Z-ONE, this card actually has no other practical use. Everything's Better with Samurai: The archetype of Mizoguchi's Bushido deck, complete with seppukku-themed trap card.

Everything's Better with Sparkles: Stardust Dragon, The Saviour Dragons, along with some special effects. Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: In episode , Jose cannot understand why Crow would lose prematurely in their duel in order to give Yusei a greater chance at victory by summoning Blackfeather Dragon.

Sherry is shown to have one in Episode The design is reminiscent of the Sin monsters' armor, and of Paradox. Rudger's right arm with his Dark Signer birthmark just before he decides to cut the left one off, with his Signer birthmark, and give it to Rex , and we all saw how well THAT turned out Kiryu, Jaeger, Divine and Rex all have one.

Let's not forget Earthbound God-possessed Carly. Episode 65 gives us Ghost's evil laugh, and most hammily of all, Lucciano. In episode 76, Jack has one of these after he punches the guy whose life he just saved.

Episode gives us a quick one from Jose. Bolger killed his best friend and Crow's mentor, Pearson, for a D-Wheel investment. His company was successful for a while, but a few years later, it's basically hemorrhaging money, and needs the Blackfeather Dragon from Pearson's old deck as collateral for an investor. Jack briefly has one. Technically, it's an evil robot twin created by Yliaster. After the group goes off to confront the Dark Signers, the intro sequence adds scenes of Jack and Aki facing off against their opponents, as well as reanimating Rua and Ruka simultaneously summoning their dragons, and replacing Yusei's Turret Warrior attacking one of Kiryu's monsters with another of his monsters attacking Rudger's Earthbound God.

Also, after Wisel and Skiel were used, they were shown in full-colour as opposed to being silhouettes. Grannel joined them in ep sadly spoiling its big reveal at the end of the episode. Kiryu qualifies as he grows his hair out after the Dark Signer arc. Aki's hair has also grown longer, as has Mikage's. Aki's change to a plain hairband in the final episodes' Time Skip , as she no longer needs the metal thing to control her powers. Sly is a mini version of Manjoume from Yu-Gi-Oh!

Bommer is a good guy version of Bandit Keith. He tries to the kill the Big Bad , has a Machine deck and is later resurrected in a twisted way. They're even played by the same voice actor in the dubs. Jack's overall attitude and dress make him look like Kaiba given a blonde Anime Hair makeover. Funnily enough, Jack's main divergences from Kaiba are his hotbloodedness and shades of Idiot Hero Add in the fact that they both love their Dragons, and Yusei and Jack together a very close Expy of Kaiba.

Brave could be an expy of Crow from the same series, having many character traits in common. To the point where it seems like they're actually twins Separated at Birth.

So is it just me that thinks that Aki looks like a certain terrorist mecha pilot with longer bangs. Pretty much every single one of the Dark Signers. All turned Heel because they died with hate in their heart. Sherry, who says if Yusei comes to the Ark Cradle, despite her warning he'll die when he does, she'll kill him herself and accepts that she is essentially the Signers' enemy. And since this is Yu-Gi-Oh! Ushio is smitten with his lovely co-worker Mikage, but the moment he chose to make his feelings known to her unfortunately turned out to be the moment when she was having a rather intense conversation with Jack Atlas, which made it clear that she was in love with him.

But in season three they are seen working together now as a pair. Placido getting ripped in half as he crashes in his duel with Yusei. He got better, though. Crow too, except he's male instead of female. Aporia does it to show off Z-One's deck to Yusei. Jack originally coming from Satellite is revealed right off the bat in the series.

During their second duel, Yusei calls Aki by her given name to grab her attention. Which makes sense, as in Japan, you only ever refer to someone by their first name only That is, without the suffixes such as -san, -chan, -kun, etc.

Doing so otherwise is usually considered disrespectful. For the Dark Signer arc we have Demak and Bommer The Dark Chick: Rex Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Rua is the foolish one and Ruka is the responsible one. Though not particularly subtle or anything. In Episode 29, it is predicted that one of the main cast will die soon. Sure enough, 9 episodes later. A slightly more subtle version appears in the second ending sequence, when Carly is inexplicably shown with the rest of the Dark Signers.

At first it looks grossly out of place, but then Not to mention the completed bridge in the last shot of the second ending. Godwin's podium in Episode 15 1st episode of the Fortune Cup.

When Godwin shows Jack the resting place of the Jibakushin, the Nazca Lines, is it any coincidence that the camera focuses on the Hummingbird Geoglyph? Jose stated once in an early season 3 episode that Luciano reminded him of his younger self and that's because they are indeed the same person, as Aporia. While it was stated that Paradox, the villain of the 10th anniversary film, would have his origins revealed in the series, nothing else was known about him.

Then again, when you compare his outfit and motorcycle to the outfits of the Three Emperors and Primo's motorcycle, it was obvious that there was at least some connection between them.

Forgot About His Powers: End your damn turn, Jean! Yusei falls victim to the same thing in that episode. The card he used in the last turn, Summon Tax, had been in his hand for some time.

If he had set it when he set Cosmic Blast, he was guaranteed a win. If it's still Cosmic Blast destroyed, he can activate it after summoning Dragoequites, and if Jean summons Voltic Bicorn he loses, so he wouldn't and thus would have to take a lethal direct hit. When he struggles against the Meklord Emperors, he eventually discovers Accel Synchro to counter their ability to steal Synchro monsters. However, he already had 2 ways of countering them, Turbo Warrior whose ability lets it ignore the effects of monsters who have a lower level; the Meklord Emperors are all level 1 monsters, and Turbo Warrior is a level 6 monster and Dragon Knight Draco Equiste who, as a Fusion Monster, was immune to the Meklord Emperors by default , and never uses either of them.

Z-One's computer screen in shows how Yusei's future would have turned out without Yliaster's interference. Among the things it mentioned is a card called Cosmic Blazar Dragon, the Delta Accel Synchro evolution of Stardust Dragon never shown in the actual story.

Other stuff mentioned is tournaments he won, and how he was actually the one who invented Accel and Delta Accel Synchro summoning. Much to Z-One's surprise though, when he skips Delta Accel Synchroing with what was suppose to be his ace monster and going even further then his alternate self by doing a Limit Over Accel Synchro to summon Shooting Quasar Dragon.

Friend or Idol Decision: Yusei had to make this one. Guess what he choses? Since friendship is one of its main themes, its no surprise this happens a lot. The king of this trope is pretty much the entire last episode, where it's so heartwarming that you might burn up from the friendly love. Duel Monsters has become so ingrained into society that there are entire separate lanes built onto highways for people who want to play card games on motorcycles.

Godwin's plan involves sending out the Signers to duel the Dark Signers and reseal the towers, and hoping that they will succeed at the former and fail at the latter, otherwise everything falls to pot. Textbook instance of planning for events that you can't control or anticipate, with an incredibly narrow margin of success. Lotten's deck theme, most prominent with Gatling Ogre, which is capable of dealing Life Points of damage at once with it's effect.

The dub removes everything after the end of Yusei's duel against the Three Emperors of Yliaster, eliminating the Arc Cradle storyline. Most of the show takes place in a futuristic city. Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! Used by Jack to get Yusei back into fighting form.

Fudo Yusei's father has a round with Yusei and does this for him. Getting Crap Past the Radar: In the dub Rally: We've had enough of your BULL- ying tactics! Jibakushin Uru , a big damn spider. Also the larger, bullet-proof version of Rudger's regular spiders.

Giving Someone the Pointer Finger: How did it take this long for this trope to get on here? Crow and Jack both - and more recently, Ruka.

Although not precisely a pointer finger, Yusei has a habit of throwing his hand forward in a gesture similar to the traditional pointed-finger pose. Glowing Eyes of Doom: Bommer, Carly, and Misty, upon trying to defy their respective Jibakushin; their eyes glow purple when possessed.

Bruno demonstrates these too in episode 93 while being attacked by Sherry, displaying physical prowess not seen before. A God Am I: Z-One to a degree as well, as he feels being the last survivor of humanity and his suffering has pushed him to this, as well as his Temporal Machine God deck based on the Sephirot of Judaism.

Played for a joke in the fandom, then actually executed with Rex Godwin when he becomes a Dark Signer. Going for the Big Scoop: Has Carly written all over it. Gonna Fly Now Montage: Jack has one in episode before his duel against Yusei, where he takes down Sherry, Kiryu and Bommer one after the other.

Good Is Not Soft: Yusei's a good guy no doubt about it, but seeing that he's older and more built than his predecessors Yugi and Jaden, he's not afraid to use his fists if he has too like a pair of Godwin's guards found out. Dark Signer Misty , even one of her monsters has the word "gorgon" in its name Gratuitous English: The main characters' "ace monsters" all have names in English, as do many others. When Yusei is in a Riding Duel and his opponent summons, the information from that opponent's card is shown inside his visor - in English.

Several, though not all, information holoscreens are in English - Yusei's prison record and the duelist information screen Ghost pulls up on him are two examples. The majority of monster attacks are called in English. The Japanese for "card" is never used, in spite of 5Ds being about a card game ; instead, the characters use the Japanese pronounciation "kaado" from the English "card.

The few legible records for the Arcadia movement are in English. Team Unicorn is actually hinted being from Spain, showing flashbacks of signs in Spanish and Andore even says 'Gracias' at one point. Gravity Is a Harsh Mistress: Rather, gravity ceases to apply the moment a character gets on a motorbike. It should not have taken several minutes to fall down a three story elevator shaft. They did talk a lot. In Episode 64, there should not have been nearly enough time for the Savior Star Dragon to catch both Crow and Jack before they hit the water.

The half of Episode 6. Yusei does this to his revolver-shaped duel disk in the Crashtown arc. But since the gun can't shoot bullets safety isn't an issue. Half the Man He Used to Be: Placido after losing his duel with Yusei, having been torn in half by Shooting Star Dragon.. A little when Yusei takes Aki rollerskating as part of Riding Duel training. Lampshaded in the English dub: Do you feel like a third wheel? This isn't a date , Leo. By the end, she admits that, yeah, it's a date.

It's only effective for 1 episode. Heart Is an Awesome Power: Ushio, after Martha taught him how to be nice and useful. Also Aki at the end of episode All of the Dark Signers by episode As they have now come back to life, and Carly, at least, has reverted to her former personality. After two violent defeats, Aporia has turned against Z-One by dueling him for the sake of Team 5Ds, because they gave him hope for the future for the first time in his life since the future was ruined.

Aki and Yusei do this towards the end of Episode Old Momentum Hero Antagonist: All of the teams in the W. Team Ragnarok even shares the same goals as Team 5D's but refuses to work with them because Yusei's father created Momentum. Not only is the closest thing Yusei has to a love interest a redhead Aki , so is his best friend Crow. Crow's a redhead who cares about a redhead - his littlest girl, with whom he seems to share a special bond, is redheaded in many shots.

Although she was more of a grudging heroine at the time, Aki seemed rather attached to her mentor, the redheaded character Divine. It may be over now, but Ruka's first canon crush was on the redheaded villain Lucciano. Ruka suffers a near-fatal one when Aporia, albeit temporarily , kills Rua. Forced in episode 46, where Rally, had to either kill Yusei or sacrifice himself. In episode 63, Crow shouts that "It doesn't matter how bad I'm hurt, as long as Yusei goes on!

The end of episode Carly forces herself to lose the duel, killing herself, and foiling Jack's plan for them to die together. Doesn't Yusei's father saving his son instead of himself count for anything? Crow is convinced that Yusei survived the fall into Old Momentum in Episode Sure enough, only an episode later Jack and Yusei; good buddies, and only that. Also, Crow and Yusei. And Kiryu and Yusei. Actually, every single male character and Yusei. Translations vary "lovebirds," "married couple," etc.

Clearly, they are just friends at first sight. And Aki gets pissed off that scene becuase Yusei found a person that is as significantly important as her or a D-Wheel upgrade more significantly important than her Physics homework. She even told off the twins particularly Rua for suggesting that she might be jealous of Bruno.

While Yusei's in the Underworld, having fallen into Old Momentum, he's seen walking for a short distance with his eyes covered. After employing a strategy of Deck Destruction to reduce the size of Yusei's deck to 0, the last member of Team Unicorn loses because he allows Yusei to convince him that winning on such a technicality is dishonorable and attacks Yusei's monster, allowing Yusei to activate his Stronghold Guardian and increase his monster's defense points, reducing his opponent's life point's to 0.

For those unfamiliar with the rules, all the opponent would have had to do was end his turn and Yusei would have lost due to the fact that he couldn't draw a card during his Draw Phase. When Yusei tries to Accel Synchro, but thanks to Placido's Hannibal Lecture , he loses his nerve, and the summoning fails.

Thankfully said failure is only temporary. A brutal one is when Z-One, after literally changing who he was to think, look, and act just like Yusei and managing to start saving the World bit by bit, has everyone he's ever saved or known die horribly or fall to their death because he couldn't do enough before a Zero Reverse happened. Andore of Team Unicorn has, what a shocker, a horn shaped bang of hair shooting up from his head.

Yusei's dad and Yusei himself, post-timeskip. This pretty much sums up Wiraqocha Rasca's anime effect. Divine does this to Aki in episode During Yusei and Aki's first duel, Yusei calls Aki beautiful, but she denies it, though this only happens in the dub. A minor example, from Yusei of all people. In his second battle with Andore, the latter has revived Thunder Unicorn during Yuesi's Battle Phase because of an [anime-only] special ability.

So what does Yusei do? Waste his own monster, Max Warrior, in order to defeat Thunder Unicorn instead of simply not attacking and letting it suffer from its own effect. Justified , as Andore's deck generally revovles around removing monsters from play and re-summoning them from the Removed From Play zone. I Have a Family: When faced with sudden death in 82, Jaeger pulls out a photograph of his wife and kid, who both look exactly like him. I Kiss Your Hand: Jack does this to his adopted mother, Martha.

Said by many people throughout the series. Yusei, Jack and Crow are regulars. Kiryu also has his moments in Crashtown. Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: After wiping out from his duel with Kiryu Yusei winds up with a piece of his D-Wheel impaled in his gut. This is changed to him having internal bruising in the dub, though they did miss a blink and you'll miss it shot of some blood pooling on Crow's backseat from his wound.

Particularly Divine in episode Someone has to tell that guy he's not Brittanian. Then there's Jack's hilariously ornate outfit in episode Makes him look like something out of a modern day Dumas.

What do you think? When Jack uses his 'Burning Soul' powers for the first time, not only does his hand catch fire but when he Synchro Summons, the Tuning Rings catch fire as well. Whenever a true Dark Signer duels, the Nazca Line geoglyph corresponding to their birthmark appears.

When a possessed person "Shadow Drone" in the English dub duels, a generic circle of fire appears. He repeatedly mispronounces it, in spite of being repeatedly told that the word he wants is "customised. To stop them, he tells them "you guys lack a little something called 'delivery' around a girl's feelings," only to have the wind taken out of his sails when Blitz points out that Crow means "delicacy. Z-One's sacrifice was effectively to stop Yusei suiciding to stop the Arc Cradle, which he called his "last duty".

In the Name of the Moon: Almost all duelists invoke this as a little introductory speech for their synchro monsters. Carly, but also one of the more developed characters in the show. Too bad she can never hold on to a scoop, though. Subverted in that the Signers didn't get a fair victory against the Dark Signers until Yusei managed to defeat Kiryu. Crow not a Signer and the Wonder Twins both dueling at the same time managed to pull out victories before this, but not on anyone important to the plot.

Worth noting that the first one to fall, Demak , is defeated about 25 episodes the first season was 26 episodes long after the Dark Signer arc actually began. Crow has lost three duels onscreen, but in two cases he has chosen to lose, and it was a gigantic plot point that's lampshaded when the peanut gallery for the duel pretty much has a collective heart attack because WTF CROW LOST. It is now finally averted in that Crow lost fairly to Team Taiyou, completely and utterly without holding back.

Played straight in season three, Yusei has taken apart of the majority of the duels and has yet to lose any of them. Most noticeable in Team Unicorn's duel.

Jack Atlas never lost a duel in the two or so years he was King, making it an in-universe example. But this is Fridge Brilliance as revealed much later in the series,that Godwin was actually paying off strong duelists who could actually be a threat to him, such as Dragan. Team Catastrophe was able to get away with their blatant cheating because Muggles can't see Hidden Knight Hook slashing at their opponents' tires. The Ark Cradle was like this at first, until it appeared for real in episode Before then, Carly, despite being a Muggle , could see it by touching Jack, a Signer.

It's All My Fault: In episode 57, a distressed and tearful Yusei blames his father, and ultimately himself, for causing Zero Reverse, and indirectly, the deaths of Jack's and Crow's parents. While it's true that his father was the head scientist on the Old Momentum projects, it was Rudger who lead a coup against Dr. Fudou and smashed the button that caused Zero Reverse.

Occurs in Episode 65 when Crow turns down Ushio's request for help in arresting Ghost. As a result, Ushio confronts Ghost himself and gets seriously injured. Crow is quite upset about this, but he perks up after Yusei decides that the three of them should hunt Ghost down. In episode 78, Luciano finds out that when you mess with one of the twins, the other one will open a can on you. Or, at least, attempt to, but considering he had them pretty much in a no-win situation Yusei pulls one of these to get into Security's Impound Centre and get his D-Wheel back towards the beginning of the series.

Ushio acts like his old asshole self during his Riding Duel with Aki in an attempt to show how unforgiving they can be. Godwin also became Goodwin, which is rather silly considering that Godwin is a real Anglo-Saxon name that's been around for a thousand years. However, this, like the Savior Dragons, this was a real life TCG name change that 4Kids mainly followed for consistency. Although with 5Ds airing alongside the original Yu-Gi-Oh! Just Like Robin Hood: Crow, who steals Security's cards to give to his orphans.

A shame they Never Found the Body. Afterwards Divine comes back only to be horrifically eaten by Misty's Earthbound God for killing her brother. In Episode 64 it's stated that all those killed, except the Godwin brothers, have returned to life. A promotional book for the 10th anniversary movie indicates that Divine was also revived and is in jail.

You could have just asked Yusei for Stardust Dragon. He would've certainly given it to you! Godwin refuses to evacuate Satellite, despite the whole prophetic vision that shows it blowing to bits , so that Yusei is forced to defeat the Dark Signers, if only to save everyone in town. Remember, this is our Mentor character. It's still hardly idealistic, but rather a choice of the lesser evil. Oh yeah, and it's also part of his secret season-long Evil Plan to eliminate the other Dark Signers and consolidate the powers of the Earthbound Gods and Crimson Dragon for himself so he can become a god.

Then he convinces Aki that it's all good. Then there are the experiments he performed on individuals with psychic potential. He does get what's coming to him, though. Rudger does Rex the dubious favour of failing to fill his younger brother in on any of the Signer vs. Dark Signer stuff until Rudger has forcibly taken over the Momentum project and presented Rex with his severed left arm and an edict to gather the Signers to come back and kill Rudger.

This act is the basis for a lot of Rex's issues throughout the story. Even the fourth wall isn't immune to a dog-kick: The ending credits 5th version do this to Aki. Sure, she may not have been as prominent in the team as the others, but did they have to be so blunt as to slap "Benchwarmer" on her!? Kill the Ones You Love: Jack was forced to do this with Carly. Yusei would've had to do this with Rally, if he didn't kill himself first. Most certainly Crow, who's just brimming with bravado.

When he and Jaeger eventually duel, they spend most of it trying to out-ham the other. Jack also qualifies for this trope - as he says in the very first episode, "The King's duels must be entertainment for all! And the Jack-Roid turns this Up to Eleven. With his brief ascension to godhood, Rex Godwin 's previous personality has gone out the window. Aki's father, Hideo, now qualifies after waving a giant flag back and forth in the stands of the WRGP.

Brave definitely qualifies, considering his '"Oh noes my life points!!! Along with all his other dramatics. Inflicted to the resurrected Dark Signers and the entire population of Neo Domino City with a few expections much to Carly's annoyance. Kiryu somehow avoids this, as does Bommer.

Also occurs to the students at Duel Academy after Luciano's duel with the twins. Last Episode Theme Reprise: The final episode features the opening theme for the last season. Last of His Kind: The title of episode is 'The Last Human: While not a spacesuit, Jack's riding outfit is unnecessarily form-fitting. While also not a spacesuit, Aki's riding suit is also rather form-fitting, which is lampshaded when she comments on how strange the whole thing feels.

Placido seems to wear a pretty tight coverall as well. Not sure if it really is a spacesuit. Letting Her Hair Down: Inverted with Aki; when her Power Limiter hairband falls out and lets her bangs down, it's because she's upset and unable to control herself. Sherry at the very end Episode Until the moment when she lets her hair out of her helmet, her duel with Yusei is deadly serious - but from that point forward, she's taken on a slightly playful air, but Sherry's default mode still seems to be deadly serious.

Compared to the Dark Signer Arc, the W. Arc seems to be shaping up to be this. Its been subverted more recently lately, as much of the lighter and softer elements were a facade for what might be disaster far worse than Old Momentum, or what Rex Godwin tried to accomplish. Episode supports this.

Definitely Subverted with The Ark Cradle and the ruining future. Yusei's the worst in this trope. To date, his core outfit the black shirt with jeans has not changed at all, and the only variations have been his Team Satisfaction vest, jacket, and poncho.

Jack however, subverts this and probably has more outfits than the rest of the main cast combined by now. Crow also subverts in S3 by actually having clothing changes that make some moderate amount of sense a work jacket, riding gloves, and helmet while he's delivering things; pajamas in the middle of the night, unlike the entire rest of the cast; a riding suit for the WRGP , although many of these are just accessory changes e.

Yusei finally gets a brand new outfit in his riding suit for the WRGP Yusei does get a new outfit, as do Aki, Crow, probably the twins after the Time Skip in the last 3 episodes. Although it looks like Jack doesn't. Lonely at the Top: Rex reveals that he acted as he did because his life since Zero Reverse has been one of complete loneliness, and that he believes loneliness is an inescapable part of life. Z-One does this to himself, to make himself into a perfect copy of Yusei.

Carly does this to Jack during their duel, putting Jack in a world where they are the rulers of a world gone to hell, after he lost their duel and became a Dark Signer, but snapped out of it once he realized the Carly he knew would never be that evil. Love Makes You Evil: The possibility of a future with Jack is what caused Carly to slip into her Dark Signer persona for a second time.

The English version of course, many times over. It just wouldn't be a 4Kids dub without it. Aporia explodes magnificently after his first defeat and crashes into the ocean. Yusei has crashed, been tasered, stabbed, beaten with vines, slammed into the ground And yet, he consistently shakes it off and keeps going.

How does one survives a close-range dynamite explosion AND a free-fall down a steep canyon? In episode 12, Yusei and Ushio fall down an elevator shaft for over a minute and land safely at the bottom with no forward momentum.

Jack has taken several D-wheel spills that should have snapped his neck in two. Slightly subverted in that two instances of this land him in the hospital , and one puts him out of commission for the rest of a tag duel.

Crow claims to break a couple of ribs in Episode 52 after a nasty fall, but they healed pretty quick, seeing as he never mentions it again, nor does he appear to suffer any pain at all after the initial comment. Averted though when he wipes out in episode 97 and actually breaks his arm. Although he is able to briefly battle Team Castrophoe in episodes and , other than that, he is pretty much out of comission for over 15 episodes afterward.

Completely averted with Aki; one bad spill on her D-Wheel puts her in a coma. Ruka can travel to and fro there. In this case, it would be the Spirit World. The Magic Goes Away: With the city permanently safe, and the main characters all having one last goodbye on the road, the Crimson Dragon removes the birthmarks and flies away, its duty fulfilled. Sherry's skirt in episode How this thing was able to cover anything during her fighting sequence, the world will never know.

Sleeping Giant Thud is an incredibly powerful monster, but his crippling summoning conditions turned him into an "useless card" as judged by the masses. In the anime, Team Taiyou are the only ones who ever managed to actually summon Thud.

In the dubbed version of episode 6 Yusei is branded with a criminal marking , he only remarks with "Is this supposed to tickle? Although the English version makes the laser into a spray of sorts whereas the Japanese version had the laser burn the marker onto his face, plain and simple. Jack Atlas is the only character in fiction who can make crying over the beauty of Cup Ramen bringing people together through tough times,seem manly.

Mark of the Beast: Dark Signers, who are handily identified by their red facial markings and purple birthmarks. The Signers too, if you count the Crimson Dragon as a beast, except there are no facial markings and the birthmarks are red.

Luciano and Placido have demonstrated the ability to create illusions through unknown means in order to impersonate others or otherwise change their appearances. Subverted by Carly in the second season; although she tries to disguise herself as both a nurse and a cleaning lady, she's easily recognizable. Her attempt at disguising Jack in Episode 31 is a hilarious failure, too. Yusei's name is derived from the Planetary Particle Yusei Ryushi his father discovered. Like the Planetary Particle which connected every other particle, Professor Fudo wished his son to a person able to connect people through bonds - and that's exactly what he turned out to be.

Rex' full name, "Rex Godwin," means "the king who is the friend of gods. Is named after a figure in Peruvian myth or history with the possible but not certain exception of Chacu Challhua. Ready to have your mind blown? What about Fire Ant Ascator? Azcatl the Japanese name of Ascator is "ant" in Nahuatl. And Godwin uses it, keeping in line with his Inca theme. In a case of Shown Their Work , chaku is the Quechua traditional Andean language word for "hunting" while challwa is the word for "fish".

Izayoi Aki roughly means ' the moon on the sixteenth night of autumn'. This is the time during which the rites of power for the Sumerian Lady of Roses are carried out, and Aki's theme is roses. Bommer's dub name, "Greiger" or, rather, "Krieger," means "Warrior" in German.

Many of the characters with Western names have names startlingly fit to their roles: Martha means "lady of the house," Jaeger is German for "hunter," and Jack is a diminutive of John, which means "God is gracious" - with his mentor's surname meaning "friend of God.

Jack's name has potentially up to three meanings, actually - it's also a medieval name meaning, simply, "man," with Carly's name meaning "woman.

Is it too much to hope they'll sing? Someone on Janime Forums pointed out that Crow's full name as given in the third season ending, "Crow Hogan," may be a play on words from the important Japanese historical figure Minamoto no Yoshitsune, who had a title that romanizes as "Hogan".

According to legend, Yoshitsune was trained in swordmanship by a Tengu , a Japanese crow-demon. Crow's orphans have names in the credits, and his girls' names Hikari and Kokoro, "light" and "heart" in Japanese fit the pattern as well - with "my heart" and "light of my life" being English phrases for the thing a person holds most dear, something that certainly holds true with Crow and his kids.

Sherry LeBlanc's name means "darling white one" in French. Sherry is French, has pale blonde hair and a white riding suit Rua's English dub name Leo suddenly makes a lot more sense when he and the lion spirit Regulus simultaneously attack the Ape King in different planes.

Regulus is the brightest star of the constellation Leo the Lion. Bruno's real name Antinomy, means logical paradox, showing how he has to turn against his friends. Martha is a Meddling Adoptive Parent, pulling on ears for emphasis. Aki's dad, Izayoi Hideo, by pretty much telling her to attach herself to Yusei as her new daddy figure while she's in Satellite.

Her old glasses still have some relevance later. She gets them back after being revived. Perfect example is Carly Nagisa, with one Euro name and one Japanese name. This show exists mainly to promote a card game. As it turns out, the Yliaster Trinity falls under this trope as well, as they are actually 3 aspects of the same entity, Aporia. Ruka wears these a few times while under spells. Ruka's duel with Professor Frank. It's accomplished with psychology themed cards, no less. Kodo Kinomiya tried to do this to Aki.

The end of Episode Yusei, Bruno who's been revealed to the audience as being a Ridiculously Human Robot , and Sherry get sucked into some sort of electronic plane where they're scanned by Z-One at the time, just a mysterious figure before getting spat back out quite a distance from where they were originally. Yusei's journey to Z-One's world qualifies. The Ark Cradle arc is being considered as this. In the English version of episode 52, after the second time Crow tries to make heavy bits of surrounding infrastructure fall on and crush Bommer rides out of the murk declaring that Crow has scratched the paint job on Bommer's D-Wheel, and that Crow will "pay".

In Episode 35, Yusei gets surgery after his D-Wheel turns over and part of it breaks off, lodging in his abdomen. In the dub this scene is not cut, but the metal fragment has been airbrushed out, and we are left with the sight of Martha and Dr.

Schmidt in surgical masks while a bare-chested, untouched Yusei grimaces on a surgical table because of "heavy bruising on the left side. One of the earliest examples, the end of episode 5. After all the Crimson Dragon disappears and Yusei and Jack come up from the wreckage. In the Japanese version, Yusei winces and looks at his arm, which is glowing with the Dragon Tail Birthmark. Silently, he pulls his glove up and his sleeve down to reveal that yes, it is coming from his arm.

In the dub however, he's screaming his head off in pain from the burning on his arm. Completely opposite from the Major Injury Underreaction example in the following episode previously mentioned. Jack's duel against a robot clone of himself with the exact same deck, including three Red Daemons' Dragons Monster Clown: Jaeger, assisted by his use of a clown-themed deck.

Edge of the Uncanny Valley, indeed. His wife and child have the exact same appearance as he does. Shooting Star Dragon has an effect that falls along these lines, as Yusei proves when he uses said effect against Placido.

By checking the top 5 cards of his deck, Shooting Star gets a number of attacks equal to the number of Tuners among them. The number of Tuners he reveals? Bommer fits this role during the Crimson Devil mini-arc. Yusei has built 3 D-Wheels comepletely out of salvaged parts from Satellite: The first one White was created after seeing one on TV.

After Jack stole it in his bid at escaping Satellite, He created the second and current Red one which is apprently named ''Yusei Go''.

Not only that, but he also reverse engineered Rua's D-Board after being told about it overnight. After the Dark Signers arc, this appears to be his trade. Does anyone in this show actually look Japanese? The show has a hefty dosage of this trope, yet conducts all of the insanity that crops up in a completely straight-faced, almost deadpan manner. For example, in the World Championship games, you can set any card in your deck to be your "Key Card".

Nothing, except add some nice effects when you use that card. Problem is, it can be ANY card. So, thunderbolts fall, and the whole field gets dark as you summon your ultimate card, the most destructive thing in the entire game: Setting a card in your deck as a key card does have a small purpose: A small bonus in Dual Points whenever the card is used in a match.

You will either think that Aporia's introduction is either cool, or the most ridiculous fucking thing ever. Also his D-Wheel looks like a cat's face. My Horse Is a Motorbike: Inverted in the manga, in which the Skeleton Knight uses a horse instead of the motorcycles that everyone else uses while dueling. My Significance Sense Is Tingling: Aki sharing a name that starts with the letter A like the other main female characters, Anzu and Asuka.

Jack wearing a jacket with huge coatails like Kaiba's post Duelist Kingdom wear. Lampshaded in the dub, where the duelist is Jonouchi's cousin and has the same voice. A random screen in the first episode list duelists that Jack defeated during his reign as King, and their names are all parodies of characters' names from the original series.

Jack's seiyuu voiced Honest in Yu-Gi-Oh! Jack's "Savior Demon Dragon" card has an effect similar to Honest's card form. Like Yugi, Yusei has an alternative self but it's inverted.

His alternative self is from the distant future and is the Big Bad. Until said Big Bad turns out not to be Yusei, but you know Yusei calling out Z-ONE for not caring about his friends, and Z-ONE reminding him that Aporia and Antinomy as well as Paradox were only Androids with their memories, but not the real ones, who had already died is very similar to Yami Bakura and Yami Yugi's discussion during the Memory Arc, where Yami Bakura reminds him that the characters in the game aren't the real people who had, obviously, died several centuries prior to the begining of the series, only given form due to Yami's memories.

It's Yu-Gi-Oh , what did you expect? Subverted when Crow wipes the floor with a handful of Security Officers in about one turn. This gets infuriating when Yusei manages to win against Rudger in a duel when he was reduced to 50 lifepoints not long after the begining. To be fair, he's won many of his duels like that. Mostly in the first few episodes. Rex first takes Crow's LP down to one and disables his bike, then does the same to Jack. He proceeds to take Yusei down to one without disabling his bike, and his victory appears imminent until Yusei summons Deus ex Machina - excuse me, I mean Savior Star Dragon, and does some fancy trap-activation with his friends' remaining cards on the field.

Quite a few season three's duels are turning out this way. But special mention to Lotten's duel against both Yusei and Kiryu. Seriously, he wipes out ALL of Kiryu's life points on the first turn, with but one card keeping him alive.

After that Kiryu and Yusei struggle to so much as defend themselves against him, before finally getting the upper hand using not only the all-too-common epic draws not that Lotten was immune, see Gatling Ogre , but actually bluffing a few times and taking advantage of Lotten's dislike of gambling. The all-time franchise champion of this has to go to the Team Unicorn duel. First Jack gets flattened by Andre after Team 5D's falls victim to a Gambit Roulette , Aki puts up a better fight, but ends up being cornered into a loss, leaving Yusei with the task of defeating all three duelists, his deck being reduced to only three cards towards the end.
