Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The fifth series in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, which first aired on April 6, 2014, and concluded on March 26, 2017, spawning a total of 148 episodes. ("ARC-V" is a double pun: it literally means "Story Arc 5", but the "V" shape also refers to the arc of a pendulum. note The term does have a meaning in the series proper, but said meaning is introduced very late into the story and constitutes a major spoiler.)In the world of ARC-V, significant developments in hard-light technology have given birth to "Action Duels": a new form of sports entertainment where Duelists fight alongside their monsters in spectacular fantasy arenas and aim to win the crowd as well as the fight.note Those duels include Action Cards, which can be found on the Action Field. Action Cards can be activated from the hand in any turn and they usually allow the player to escape from enemy attacks or to give their monster more offensive power. Action Traps have mostly a negative effect for the player.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Yuya Sakaki is an eighth-grader who aims to follow in the footsteps of his Disappeared Dad and become the most popular Entertainment Duelist in the world. When the pendulum pendant he received from his father suddenly begins to glow during a televised exhibition match, Yuya unlocks the incredible power of Pendulum Summoning: An unknown form of Summoning that could be Yuya's big break into showbiz... Or lead to a whole heap of unwanted trouble.Similar to previous series, there are Duel Schools which teach people how to duel and in different styles; though unlike previous series, those are afterschools and regular schools indeed exist. However, the Fusion, Ritual, Synchro and Xyz Summonings are taught only in elite schools, with the Leo Duel School (LDS) being the monopoly of the entire world. With Yuya's creation of Pendulum Summoning, a new Summoning method was born that had never been seen before. Despite being a student of the low-level You Show Duel School, he decides to prove that the school's Entertainment Duel style can compete with anything.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Then the Wham Episodes start coming. One right after the other.ARC-V evolves into a Deconstructor Fleet of many tropes and plot elements universal to the franchise, deconstructing and reconstructing them left and right. Reality Ensues with the hero having rare cards no one has seen before, the holographic systems are used for war, and the Serious Business aspect of the card game is justified. The result is a Darker and Edgier Yu-Gi-Oh! series that manages to be more realistic and serious while still staying true to the themes and morals the franchise is known for. Being that it is airing as the franchise celebrates its 20th anniversary, it also pays homage to all that has come before it in a way that is a massive Walking Spoiler.As of November 15, 2016 official subs are available on Crunchyroll. You can legally view it here.Warning: While a good few spoilers are hidden, some spoilers are left unmarked! If you wish to watch the series without any spoilers, you have been warned.

Anyone Can Die
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_1237828f
comment
Anyone Can Die: Or be turned into a card at any rate. Surprisingly for a Yu-Gi-Oh! show there is a lot of supporting characters that are sealed in cards. This includes Hokuto, Michio, Olga, Halil, Teppei, Hikage and the three Knight of Duels Carl, Ashley and Bram. Not even legacy characters are safe. Poor Crow and Asuka... Episode 144 revealed that Yuto, Yuri and Yugo and potentially all of the Bracelet Girl except maybe for Yuzu, the protagonists and major antagonists of the previous arcs, are gone because of Zarc's defeat. Subverted when it's revealed Yuto, Yugo and Yuri are inside of Yuya and all the Bracelet Girls return in episode 148 with Yuzu in control.

The Artifact
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_13d7a65e
comment
The Artifact: The 2000 Life Point penalty for entering a duel already in progress was an understandable rule introduced in the Battle Royale of the Arc League Championship. However, the mechanic has been retained in all duels since, even when it's a hindrance to the protagonists since almost any time they enter a duel in progress now, it's to help a friend against a villain. It's even less sensical in Season 3 when apparently Duel Disks from other dimensions have the same mechanic built into them.

Good friends can (potentially, if they're aware of the situation) provide emotional support for characters who are struggling through a Heroic BSoD, but that's about it. Even if you're dueling for someone else's sake, you're not likely to win unless you keep your head in the game.

Rescue Romance: Variation. Yoko and Yusho Sakaki met when he stepped into a duel she was having with a rival delinquent gang in order to rescue one of the members of her own gang they were keeping hostage. He showed up and rescued the girl, all while entertaining the perpetrators and winning her heart.

At the opposite end, Kurosaki, Kaito, and Reiji are all correct that they're in a Darker and Edgier anime, but the former two think that it's a Dark Age of Comics-like series where you have to Pay Evil unto Evil and the latter thinks that it's a Genius Thriller in the vein of Death Note and Code Geass that pushes the boundaries between shonen and seinen, where you have to be as much of a Chessmaster outside of a duel as you are in it. In a series like this, even these approaches aren't safe from deconstruction.

Does This Remind You of Anything?
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_14ed6ab7
comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: Being sealed into a card is a pretty clear metaphor for death or murder, considering its permanence and the trauma associated with witnessing it. Kurosaki even directly references the cards as the "graveyards" of his comrades in episode 75. Reiji and Himika's war speech that signaled the end of MCS. The audience's reaction changing from horrified to prideful as Reiji glorifies warfare comes off as extremely unsettling, especially in a children's show. Not that the main casts are happy about it. The situation in the Synchro dimension appears to be a mix of late-Tsarist Russia and the USA. The City's economic situation, specifically the lack of a middle class and Shinji's speech are based on the former while the City's beliefs and justifications for their corruption is based on the latter. It's even said that 99% of the wealth is controlled by 1% of the population. Sergey. Once again, Yu-Gi-Oh! gives us a villain who uses whip-shaped plants to show their sadistic, BDSM side. Only this opponent is also a masochist, as reflected in his dueling style.

You Can't Thwart Stage One
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_15385326
comment
You Can't Thwart Stage One: Arc-V showed an excellent use of this trope to build tension with the Yuya vs Yuri duel. The fandom knows that Zarc will obviously revive but because Zarc will revive no matter the result of the Yuya vs Yuri duel, that means there wasn't an obvious winner for once which caused the fandom for once to be generally divided on the winner.

Big, Screwed-Up Family
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_154aa477
comment
Big, Screwed-Up Family: The Akabas. Every single member of their family has so many issues. Reiji: He was once a normal kid that saw his family dissolve in front of his eyes. Once he found out his father became an interdimensional invader, he became the head of LDS at 13 and spent 3 years preparing a defense for his dimension and as a result is more than a little extreme in his desire to protect his home. Himika: She was hurt that her husband rejected her and become even more extreme in her desire to protect her home than even Reiji was as shown by her actions with Reira. Reira: He lived in a war torn country as a child alone, throwing away his sense of self to survive. He was adopted by Himika to be the perfect soldier. Only recently has he started to regain his sense of self. Leo: He blames himself for the destruction of the Original Dimension. After regaining his memories, he has dedicated his life to his goals of fixing his mistakes but at the price of seeing the Four Dimensions and the people living in them as mistakes and unable to see the Bracelet Girls and the Dragon Boys as nothing more than part of their original forms.

Genre Shift
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_177a6464
comment
Genre Shift: ARC-V started out as a light hearted anime with some darker undertones, not unlike GX. By the time the Tournament Arc was done, it became a dimensional war that deconstructs the Hard Light system that's been in place in the series for years, putting it on the same level as, or perhaps even more so than the Shadow Games from the first and second series animes, as well as taking a deeper look at the psychological ramifications it all has on the cast, sometimes verging on Gen Urobuchi levels of psychological breakage, especially in regards to the main protagonist. Plus from the Synchro arc on much of the plot is driven by the political manipulation various parties perform in order to achieve their goals. Come the Fusion arc, specifically episodes post 126 and 127, the series takes more cosmic horror aspects as the reveal of Zarc and Ray starts to drive the series more.

The Worf Effect
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_178ca149
comment
The second opening shows participants of the Junior Youth Championship in a prominent way, these includes the students from the various Duel Schools and the LDS trio. None of them is actually important to the tournament plot and they are eliminated pretty early, most of them off-screen or very quick. Particularly, the LDS trio, who are supporting characters, are highlighted with the rest of the supporting cast, but all of them besides Masumi, who was eliminated before the opening was first aired, suffer from The Worf Effect and they have lost their prominence in the show. Sora is also shown to among the ranks of LDS, which might foreshadow that he will eventually leaves You Show, but Sora never joins LDS and he even antagonizes them.

Defeat Means Friendship
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_19769f50
comment
Defeat Means Friendship: Zigzagged. Played straight for about three duels (all of which had the "antagonists" not being particularly bad people and changing their behavior before the duel ended). Also, in two of these it wasn't the actions of the protagonist but the actions of the audience that convinced the person to change, and the third one showed that the opponent in question didn't so much change as revert to the personality he used to have before he became a Fallen Hero. While the villains tend to mock, invoke or otherwise plan for this, later on the series plays it straight, resulting in Heel Face Turns en masse.

Poor Communication Kills: A justified example, the reason for Yuto and Yugo's rivalry. They both thought the other was Yuri who kidnapped Ruri and Rin, people very important to them. As such they were both angry and probably would never think that there was a second person that looked like them around.

Wrong Genre Savvy
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_20a14df0
comment
Wrong Genre Savvy: Several characters, most notably Yuya and his friends and family often believe they're in a regular Yu-Gi-Oh! show rather than an Urobuchi-style Deconstructor Fleet. Yuya in particular thinks he's in a typical gaming anime while he's actually in a Psychological Horror story similar to Tokyo Ghoul, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Kamen Rider Gaim, and the 2012 anime adaptation of Black★Rock Shooter. Likewise, Sawatari would have been his main rival in such a show, but here, he's treated with no respect and constantly overshadowed by almost everyone. At the opposite end, Kurosaki, Kaito, and Reiji are all correct that they're in a Darker and Edgier anime, but the former two think that it's a Dark Age of Comics-like series where you have to Pay Evil unto Evil and the latter thinks that it's a Genius Thriller in the vein of Death Note and Code Geass that pushes the boundaries between shonen and seinen, where you have to be as much of a Chessmaster outside of a duel as you are in it. In a series like this, even these approaches aren't safe from deconstruction. Much later, Yuya turns out to be correct, and several characters who were Unscrupulous Heroes learn to change their ways. It just takes a really, really long time to get there.

Adaptational Villainy: As noted on the Recycled Premise section of the YMMV page, the Tops / Common conflict seems to be identical to the dynamic between Satellite / Domino City dynamic, with one major exception: The separation is instigated by the Tops themselves rather than the Zero Reverse, like in 5Ds, making them look like even bigger assholes than before. Furthermore, their reaction towards the Commons comes off as much pettier, since THEY are the ones who left the citizens to dry, spreading crime and violence, rather than the Satellite residents needing to steal due to the scarcity of resources caused by the Zero Reverse. However, the Commons aren't much better. They fully support the messed-up system that pushes them down, buying in on the Bread and Circuses completely. Even Shinji's speech seems soon forgotten, and the citizens mock Yuya for daring to claim that the enslavement of losers is wrong, then they're thrilled when his duel turns violent. While they're still the victims, their status as Apathetic Citizens makes it hard to root for them. On top of that, the Commons are quick to violence and anger. At first it seemed righteous but when all hell started to break loose with Academia's invasion, they took the opportunity to revolt. What was discovered is that instead of pushing towards equality like those found in 5Ds they instead choose to try and flip the system entirely with themselves on top. Thus it's true they support the system, they just want themselves on top. In many ways they are no better than the Tops and went out of their way to cause harm and mayhem and even betray Crow who wanted to find a more peaceful solution. They didn't even care about Academia's invasion, putting their "revolution" above all else. Academia itself, being based on Duel Academy from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX is now an Academy of Evil for training brainwashed Child Soldiers, whereas the original was an Academy of Adventure largely aimed at teaching future pro-duelists.

Most of the Tops actually believe the lie that they are equals and friends with the Commons, when they're actually the oppressive ruling class in a Crapsack World.

 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_2260cfe3
comment
Like Father, Like Son / Like Father, Unlike Son: Yuya looks up to his father, using a Entermate archetype and a similar playstyle to his father to entertain the audience. Reiji, on the other hand, after finding out his father had abandoned his family and is planning to fuse the dimensions, has shown dislike towards his father and wishes to foil his plans. Gradually deconstructed as the series progresses with the tropes switching between the characters. There are times where Yuya struggles to use Entertainment Dueling and resorts to violence in order to win, only to later regret his actions. Even when he doesn't, his cheerfulness can come off as forced, if not ambiguous, much different from Yusho's dueling, which seemed more sincere. Meanwhile, while Reiji and Leo have very different goals, both use questionable methods, believing the ends justify the means.

Chekhov's Gun: The 2000 LP penalty if interrupted a duel that was introduced in the Fusion Dimension invasion arc, a In-Universe Scrappy Mechanic, ended up played a major role in bringing down Roget. To elaborate: He trapped Reiji in a cyber space that allows him to regenerate and duels everytime he lost to his opponent. Without this mechanic, Reiji's combo would not kill him infinite time.

As a group of Fire-Forged Friends who first allied in the middle of battle, the Lancers fall apart when they first arrive in the Synchro dimension as they don't really know how to interact with each other when not in battle (and really know very little about each other outside of dueling). But because the only time they ever worked together as a team was when it really counted, they can do so again when the City is thrown into chaos.

Game-Breaker: Invoked with Pendulum Summoningnote Place two Pendulum Monsters in the two Pendulum Zones, treated as Spell cards, and you can Summon as many Monsters from your Hand as you want at the same time, provided the Levels of the Monsters are between the left and right Scales of your respective left and right Pendulum Monsters. No tributing is needed; in fact, a Pendulum have special effect(s) while in a Pendulum Zone., which many characters in ARC-V consider to be akin to cheating. The groundbreaking aspect of Pendulum Summoning come from the fact that it allows you to summon several monsters at once, where past protagonists would typically bring out only their signature beast that might be supported by another weaker monster. As Yuya only has a few beatsticks such as Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, it does not seem as broken when he plays the mechanic. It may also because that for quite a while, Yuya is the only Pendulum user in public. This is what happens with you let the Big Bad create a summoning method.

The MCS arc includes sub-tournaments in different age classes, most notably the Junior Youth Championship, where the majority of duels are shown. The story gives a lot of build-up for this tournament, and it is stated in episode 26 that this is not going to be just a normal tournament. As a part of the Deconstruction, the Junior Youth Championship is cancelled after the round where the top 8 were determined.

Hufflepuff House: Ritual Summoning. The four dimensions are explicitly based on the four types of Extra Deck Special Summons, so while Ritual Summoning is technically the fifth Special Summon type, it gets very little attention and isn't seen as an advanced technique like the other methods are. Mieru and Asuka use Ritual Monsters, so they do have some representation, but it's far lower than the other four monster types.

Master of None: Standard was this compared to the other dimensions before Yuya invented Pendulum summoning. While they had access to the various extra deck summoning methods, they weren't as skilled as the duelists that came from the other dimensions. Makes sense when you learn they didn't originally have these methods.

Withholding the Big Good: Due to Leo's impatience, he screws up Ray's revival just as Zarc fully revives. As a result Zarc spends episodes 136 to 139 tearing through the Lancers, their allies, who are the strongest duelists of their respective dimension and Leo easily. Even Reiji despite putting up a good fight goes down and if it wasn't for Reira channeling Ray at the last second, Zarc would have won.

Lampshade Hanging: In addition to pulling a lot of Subverted Tropes in regards to series staples, the anime also hangs a lot of lampshades on stuff that's still played straight. For example... In episode 55 when Yugo and Yuzu get into a riding duel with Security, Yuzu points out just how incredibly dangerous "card games on motorcycles" would be in real life, even without the Hard Light making the attacks real and possibly causing a wipeout, and even suggests stopping and dueling him normally for safety reasons. Doesn't stop Yugo from continuing the duel though, nor does it stop him from scaring Yuzu silly with half the stunts he pulls during it. The Lancers also get in on this quite a bit.

comment
Different in Every Episode: Before each Action Duel, a sequence plays out where various characters introduce the concept, with different animation and characters each time it's done. The animation is different based on who is introducing the concept and the relationship between the characters. Example includes Gongenzaka and Ankokuji having a sparring match during theirs. Also Fusion Chants, they vary based on the monsters used in the fusion. So for Fusion monsters with more lax requirements, the chant is pretty different each episode.

comment
Gratuitous English: While this is common in this franchise, attack names are often entirely in English. However, we list here the attack names of the Four Dimension dragons (including evolutions) because they are a mix of Japanese and English words, a possible nod to Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Red Daemon's Dragon and the two Galaxy-Eyes dragons, Photon and Tachyon. This also includes the attacks of certain dragons based on the dragons from previous series. Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon's Rasen no Strike Burst. Odd-Eyes Dragon's Spiral Flame is entirely in English instead. Rune-Eyes Pendulum Dragon's Rengeki no Shiny Burst. Beast-Eyes Pendulum Dragon's Hell Dive Burst is entirely in English instead. Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon's Shakunetsu no Mega Flame Burst. Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon's Hangyaku no Lightning Disobey. Clear Wing Synchro Dragon's Senpuu no Hell Dive Slasher. Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon's Hanki no Gekirin Strike Disobey. Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon's Reppuu no Crystallos Edge. Dark Requiem Xyz Dragon's Shinkon no Disaster Disobey. Red Daemon's Dragon Scarlight's Shakunetsu no Crimson Hell Burning. Red Daemon's Dragon Tyrant's Gokuen no Crimson Hell Tide Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon's Senmetsu no Cipher Stream. On another note, quite a few characters (Yuya, Sawatari, Dennis, Halil) are prone to exclaiming things in English even outside of the usual Duel lingo, as are the opening/ending themes. There's so much that one almost starts to wonder whether English networks could get away with airing it without even needing a dub.

Yuya in particular thinks he's in a typical gaming anime while he's actually in a Psychological Horror story similar to Tokyo Ghoul, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Kamen Rider Gaim, and the 2012 anime adaptation of Black★Rock Shooter. Likewise, Sawatari would have been his main rival in such a show, but here, he's treated with no respect and constantly overshadowed by almost everyone.

Evolving Credits: After the third episode, the first opening reveals Sawatari's three hidden Darts Shooter cards. After Episode 37, the second openings changes from scenes of Yuya's duel with Sawatari and Yuzu's duel with Masumi to scenes of Yuya and Yuto holding their dragons and a scene of Yuzu and Serena each with their own bracelet. Also, Clear Wing Synchro Dragon and Yuri's face are no longer hidden. After Episode 54, the third opening changes the opening from Action Duels to Riding Duels, showing Yuya being chased by Security after he arrives in the Synchro Dimension with an overview of Jean Michel Roget, showing the preparations of a Riding duel, showing Crow and Jack when Odd-Eyes and Clear Wing are fighting. And then showing Roget and two new characters and seeing Jack unsilhouetted. Since episode 65, Jack's dragon is also unveiled.

Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_372bc105
comment
Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: ARC-V goes all over the scale. On one side the show does not tip toe around the harsh realities of war. But the show goes out of the way to show that violence isn't the answer and while difficult, the only way to end war is with communication. This reaches a head in the endgame, where Yuya causes people to turn good left and right and many tropes previously deoncstructed are played straight, leading to a happy ending.

Not Drawn to Scale
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_37ea4a73
comment
Not Drawn to Scale: In episode 24, Hidekazu Ebina (the episode's animation director) said that he intentionally made Yuto taller than Yuzu despite that he's supposed to be shorter than her. His reason was that this was supposed to give Yuto's exposition a sense of seriousness. Gongenzaka's height varies on occasion, mostly when it is funny for him to be towering over someone else. Off-Model can also be to blame, however.

Crapsaccharine World: The City in Synchro Dimension, full stop. In the third opening, pictures of it looked incredibly stunning and beautiful, if a bit lacking in color. Come episode 54, however, it is revealed that 99% of the population lives in the slums, while the last 1% lives in Tops, a city built high above the ground. It's almost as though the people of Tops are flaunting their status for all to see from the ground below. And as it turns out, the Commons aren't much better, not caring about the fates of the defeated in the Friendship Cup and cheering on duels with bloodlust. Losers and problematic people are sent to an underground trash facility.

Take That, Audience!: Zarc's backstory Yuya's Awakened state has plenty of fans who wanted to see him utterly annihilate places such as the Synchro Dimension and Academia due to his ability to cause real destruction. Zarc became a bloodthirsty monster who fused himself with his dragons and gained power on par with a god because of a similar sort of fans who wanted to see more bloodshed and carnage from him after he accidentally injured someone in a Duel.

In a more personal level while everyone that was carded is back, Reira is now a baby due to his Heroic Sacrifice and the Dragon Boys and Bracelet Girls are stuck as one person for each group.

The Magic Poker Equation
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_4159744
comment
The Magic Poker Equation: A series staple; many characters have a very convenient opening hand. Consider, for instance, the number of times Kurosaki opens with three copies of Vanishing Lanius, or the number of situations that make Smile World (a recurring card that looks mediocre on paper) work. Surprisingly enough, there is actually some aversion to this trope when looking at the deck types used in the series. Hokuto and Yaiba, who use the Constellar and X-Saber archetypes respectively, make pretty standard plays in respect to how the real Yu-Gi-Oh! card game is played. With those Archetypes, getting out one or two monsters with 2500+ ATK on the first turn is pretty normal, especially when it's shown that characters carry multiple copies of cards. It's also noteworthy that there's one character who is famous in-universe for this, so much so it's part of his canon nickname. Also noticeable is that he frequently does a chant and concentrates before drawing, which hints that, like the Shining Draw in ZEXAL, his luck might actually be some sort of supernatural ability.

Gongenzaka quickly calls her out on not telling anyone about him back when Yuya took the blame for his actions, then goes for What the Hell, Hero? when he thinks she didn't say anything because she doubted Yuya and suspected he was behind it for real.

Worthy Opponent: This is everywhere. Nearly every match ends with the opponents respecting the other's skill. Then the plot gets started and this trope is sadly averted more than played straight. Averted in the Sora vs Kurosaki duel. With Kurosaki attempting to steal Sora's soul afterwards and Sora refusing to admit defeat to an Xyz user. Also averted in the Yuya vs Kachidoki duel. Where Kachidoki refused to take Yuya's hand after Yuya defeated him. Averted in any of the duels that have to do with the interdimensional war. The Academia laugh at their victory and their opponents are just trying to survive or have become just as bad as them. Averted in the Synchro Dimension as well. Security looks down on everyone, while their opponents are trying to escape.

Adult Fear
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_46118dc5
comment
Adult Fear: So much. In Episode 4, Yuzu and the kids of You Show Duel school are literally hanging on for dear life. How would their parents react to that!? In Episode 32, Yoko watched the building her son was in collapse on top of him. He got away, but for a second she thought she saw her son be seriously hurt or worse. Everything about what Kurosaki said in #33 and #34. One day, you are minding your own business, and then invaders from another dimension come and attack you for no reason, as you watch as everyone you care about getting sealed in cards. Another one for Yoko. Imagine yourself going to drop off some kids home when you get the call that says your son is in a coma. The Battle Royale sub-arc is filled with this. Your son or daughter is in a tournament and after a while any feed of your child is cut as they are forced to fight for survival against invaders from another dimension while you have no idea. The worst part has to be when the tournament is over and you find out your child was carded. You are told your child is in another dimension and you have no way to get to them. That is a nightmare Shuzou is currently facing. You look away for a second and a small child you are looking after disappears. You are arrested and forced to leave your three young children without any guidance, protection or support. You later spot your children sneaking into a high-profile event, being chased by the guards, and you can do nothing to help. Imagine being arrested for shoddy reasons and having brain surgery performed on you without your consent or knowledge. You find out that your kid, whom you believed to be receiving a prestigious education in an academy, has been turned into a brainwashed soldier, raided another city, killed huge amount of people and is possibly dead himself. There is also an inversion in Episode 133 where you watch your father die in front of you. Your daughter sacrifices herself for the greater good, and you're the only one who knows what she did.

Interdimensional Travel Device: Several of them are around, from the duel disks of the Fusion and Xyz dimensions inhabitants, and after Reiji got ahold of Yuto's duel disk he was able to implement the same feature on the Lancers' (Standard) Disks using cards to set up coordinates. During the first season it was already known that Yuzu's bracelet note It's unknown if the other bracelets have a similar feature could warp people away, but during the Battle Royale it warped her and Yugo to the Synchro Dimension.. In the same vein the Yugo's Clear Wing Synchro Dragon has been doing that to him for a while now, its implied that the four Dimension Dragons have the same power as well, because they are drawn to each other

Leaning on the Fourth Wall
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_4a3e547f
comment
Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Gongenzaka justifies his use of Synchro Summoning to his father by proclaiming that dueling is constantly evolving, and even Steadfast Dueling must evolve or be left behind in a new era where everyone else has moved on. This is pretty much exactly what happens in the real life card game, with old archetypes like Harpies and Cyber Dragons getting new support cards to allow them to use new strategies and summoning methods introduced after their original runs. The recurring theme of the three main protagonists seeking to evolve their dueling styles with new strategies to keep up with opponents could also be a nudge to real life players that dislike the new summoning methods like Synchro and Xyz. In episode 60 and 61, Yuya is back into a corner by a card called "No Cheating Allowed", which bounces any special summoned cards back to the opponent's hand whenever a Cardian monster is on the field, making his Pendulum Summons useless until he can get rid of it. A character on the sidelines quickly comments on how as long as that card's on the field, Yuya's Pendulum summoning will be treated as cheating. This seems to mirror a lot of veteran players reactions to when Pendulum Summoning was introduced in the actual card game, with many considering it broken and cheating. In episode 64, when the public of the Synchro Dimension is introduced to Action Cards, some complain that it seems unfair, not unlike how the fandom at first felt about them.

Big Good
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_4a852458
comment
Big Good: Arc-V is unique as there are technically three Big Goods throughout the show. Reiji is the first one shown and arguably fits the role closest despite his morally ambiguously ways in the start of the show. Reiji is the founder and leader of the Lancers, the main heroic organization of the series as he leads the charge against Big Bad, Leo Akaba. In the final arc, he prepared and organized the plan that allowed Yuya to pacify Zarc. Yusho is the second one shown and while Reiji fits the leadership part of the role, Yusho is more the charisma. Yusho's ideals play a big part of the show due to Yuya's attempt to live up to them. Yuya being able to fulfill the ideals allowed him to not only bring peace to the Synchro Dimension and end the invasion of the Xyz Dimension but even redeem Zarc. Also due to Reiji's deep respect for Yusho, Reiji will listen Yusho's orders giving Yusho a degree of command over him. Yusho fully steps into this role from 130 to 133 when he rallies the good guys that can move to stop Zarc's revival before facing Yuri himself. Ray is Zarc's opposite thus the strongest good guy in the show. While Zarc regards everyone's attempt to stand up to him with amusement, Ray's arrival strikes fear in him. It is due to her intervention that the Lancers, their allies and Leo are finally able to defeat Zarc after he spent the past few episodes tearing through them.

Personality Powers: Most character's decks reflect who they are in some way, Yuya's Performpals, are goofy and support each other, Kurosaki's Raid Raptors are better at fighting things stronger than them, and Sora's Fluffal deck is a cute and non-threatening deck that hides a much darker side. Reira's use of card that mimic his opponent likewise hint at his lack of a sense of self.

Versus Character Splash: Before the start of a duel, there is a VS screen when both duelists shout "Duel!". The names of the duelists are shown on-screen, but only either the first name or last name, depending with which they are referred to. The screens also show the spellings of certain names that differ from the "fan-spelling". This include Syuzou/Shuzou, Layra/Reira or Ute/Yuto. But whether the spellings are official or not is another question.

comment
Wham Shot: Although it can no longer be considered as such, the first shot of Heartland let the viewers know that this series is not like the others. Episode 39 has Yuya with Glowing Eyes of Doom. From episode 45, Dennis has Polymerization in his deck. Episode 46 has Dennis welcome Yuri. The third opening sequence has a rather big one, with a brief silhouette of what appears to be Jack Atlas with Red Dragon Archfiend Scarlight behind him. Episode 59 has Tsukikage appearing out of nowhere to rescue Reira. Episode 67 has Reira attached to wires. Episode 70 has a shot where Duel Chaser 227 pulls out a Goyo Fusion monster out of the envelope Roget had sent him. Zigzagged with Episode 74. It was already expected from previews that Dennis would use Fusion Monsters against Kurosaki, revealing his allegiance to Academia. Said monsters being Antique Gear monsters, however, were not. The preview for Episode 75 features the return of Sora. At the end of episode 86, we see Yuri in the Synchro dimension. At the end of episode 123, the Academia student who is guiding Yuya is seen smirking evilly, which reveals that Doktor's speech on controlling the students aren't just empty words. In 135 as Yuya stands over Yuri, he starts to radiate a black aura showing that Zarc has taken over Yuya's body.

Harsher in Hindsight: Invoked by Reiji. When Yuya tells him that he got his two Fusion dragons because of Yuzu, who in turn asked Sora to learn Fusion Summoning, Reiji points out that Sora indirectly influenced Yuya and that the power of Rune-Eyes and Beast-Eyes originated from Academia.

Full-Circle Revolution: The Synchro Dimension was dangerously close to this. At the later parts of the Synchro arc, Shinji's revolution would simply switch the rulers between the Tops and Commons while keeping the same mindset. It wasn't till the Lancers interfered that they finally buried the hatchet and started a more healthy revolution.

Smug Snake: Played with in LDS. While they are very skilled, they underestimate their enemies and think they are the best. When Kurosaki, Yuto, Yuya and Yuzu have all beaten some of their aces. There are some exceptions though, such as Reiji and there are some who are implied to be nice, such as Tio.

The Obelisk Force often times uses strategies similar to real life competitive players: lots of cards that remove monsters from the field and prevent their opponent from counter attacking. They are also Smug Super whose methods are treated as dirty, underhanded and disgraceful.

comment
Magic Versus Science: Unlike past Yu-Gi-Oh! series, science has the main focus. Due to advances in science, holograms have real mass and being sealed in cards are purely scientific, making the threat purely scientific. In addition, the Four Dimension Dragons and the mysterious powers in the Yuyas and Yuzus' possession are completely mystical in nature, and magic doesn't exist at all. Finally subverted when it was revealed that Duel Monsters have souls and is the main catalyst behind the creation of Zarc.

Shades of Conflict
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_53e36b34
comment
Shades of Conflict: As a war story, ARC-V has various conflicts that fly all over scale. White And Black Morality: The series at first seemed to be setting this up with You Show as the White and LDS as the black, but this was thrown into a loop with Yuto and Kurosaki started to act. Same for the Synchro Arc with the Commons as the White and the Tops as the dark which was subverted when we understood more about the series. So far the only conflict that plays this straight is the Xyz Dimension vs the Fusion Dimension. Gray and Grey Morality: The true shade for the Synchro Dimension conflict, both the Commons and Tops are bloodthirsty and believe in complete competition a large difference in morals from the main protagonists. The only true difference is the Commons are effectively enslaved by the Tops. Black and Grey Morality: The shade for the Xyz and Fusion arcs. While the You Show Characters are purely white, the Lancers as a whole are much more morally ambiguous with Reiji allowing teenagers to fall for his plans and Kurosaki believing in Pay Evil unto Evil. The Academia so far are sadists that openly enjoyed destroying the Xyz Dimension. The final two conflicts are A Lighter Shade of Grey and Evil Versus Oblivion, with three sides all fighting each other. On one side there's Zarc, who wants to destroy the world. To combat him, Leo Akaba instigated the inter-dimensional war so he'd be able to revive Ray, the only person able to stop Zarc. Reiji, the Lancers, and Yusho are fighting both of them by trying to prevent the apocalypse without stooping to the same level as Leo.

Immune to Mind Control : Yuya. One of the Doktor's Parasite Fusioners attempted to crawl into Yuya's brain, but it was burnt to a crisp as Yuya's Superpowered Evil Side (actually Zarc) briefly emerged. Ironically, Roget intended to do something similar to him earlier but due to a lack of time went with the electric shock device instead, effectively forcing Yuya into Berserk Mode. Good thing Roget didn't go with the first solution.

comment
Creator Thumbprint: The series director, Katsumi Ono, also directed 5Ds, which makes a lot of story elements from ARC-V seem familiar — Yuya has issues concerning his vanished father, Yuzu has a larger role than usual female leads, there's a plot-significant series of Dragon-types, and Action Duels are centered around Action Field Spells similar to Turbo Duels and Speed World. And then the whole Synchro Dimension storyline is similar to the first season of 5Ds. The thumbprint gets even larger in Season 3 when it is revealed the real Big Bad is Yuya's original self, Zarc, paralleling Yusei and Z-one from 5Ds.

comment
The Conspiracy: LDS has restricted advanced Extra Deck Summoning techniques and cards (Fusion, Synchro and Xyz) to only their top students and not the general public. They also control almost all Duel Schools around the world as a means to achieve some kind of goal. Their goal is later revealed to be stopping Leo Abaka and defending their dimension. Reiji is using the MCS to weed out powerful duelists to "serve as Lancers to protect the world", whatever that means. Turns out he's recruiting the finalists to fight in the war against Academia.

Central Theme: "Bring smiles with your Dueling" and "Forgiveness is the only way to end the war". Those words were said by Yuto and Yuya respectively. The fifth opening further reinforces this: Aside from these two themes, there is also a hidden message for the entire series itself: A Friend in Need. In this case, if Yuya helps out anyone he encounters solve their inner problems, then it's their turn to help him in return.

Befriending Yuya and Yuzu doesn't directly lead Sora to pull a Heel–Face Turn, but he does begins looking for ways to follow orders without hurting Yuya or Yuzu because he cares about them. This gives Yuya and Yuzu an opportunity to point out some of Academia's darker traits, eventually leading Sora to doubt Academia and slowly pull a Heel–Face Turn.

Serious Business: Wouldn't be a Yu-Gi-Oh! show without it. But ARC-V tends to do a bit more to justify it than other series. The reason for other people trying to steal Yuya's Pendulum Monster cards are because they are one of a kind tools needed for an entirely new Summoning method when they were created. The high stakes of Duels are more reasonable, as due to advances of technology, Duelists are really in danger- and spectators too, as used to chilling effect when Yuya duels Sawatari. Yuya freaks out when Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is destroyed during his Duel with Sora, and everyone treats his impending loss as a terrible blow, even though there are no real stakes. This one is less due to the consequences and more due to Odd-Eyes being Yuya's Living Emotional Crutch. Also, he didn't know that Sora would still manage to stick around at the time. The series does a very good job justifying why Dueling is used for fights to the death. If you could make real monsters physically attack your enemies, conventional weapons are worthless. Powerful duelists are pretty much people of mass destruction as Kurosaki showed in his duel against Sora, he easily destroyed an entire city. Special mention goes to the special summons. While Pendulum Summoning being a big deal is justified in that it's brand new and starts off exclusive to one person, it almost seems like any other type of summoning is damn near impossible to learn unless you have a proper teacher. Yuzu takes multiple episodes before she can learn even the most basic of fusion summoning, and Gongenzaka's father initially thought he stole Synchro summoning from another school. This is later justified as Standard originally didn't have any extra deck summoning methods and Leo introduced them to the public due to his subconscious memories of them from the Original Dimension. Episode 36 reveals that duelists from the Fusion Dimension conquered the Xyz Dimension with Duel Monsters. As a form of Call-Back to Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, Yugo stated that dueling is the fastest way to create a comfortable life for yourself in the Synchro Dimension, unlike Standard, which is treated more like a sport than anything.

The third opening depicts a vicious battle between an angry Yuya and Yugo, using Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon and Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, respectively. Presumably, it was setting up a war between them, as Yuya is on a mission to rescue Yuzu, who Yugo accidentally whisked away. In the show proper, not only does Yuya not use Odd-Eyes Rebellion during the span the show used this opening except at the beginning, but he and Yugo never duel. Their only meeting came at the end of episode 91, and they never spoke - they just dueled their opponents in the same room. What's more, neither of the two bear any ill will towards each other; in fact, Yugo seems to think Yuya's a pretty cool guy if Yuzu thinks so highly of him. Furthermore, Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon has never fired a Breath Weapon during the entire series so far.

Special note of the Lancers, who despite being the good guys are made up of differing kinds of moralities. Yuya and Gongenzaka are obviously White, being the kindest characters on the team who are deeply opposed to the war. Sawatari and Serena are Light Grey, Sawatari seems more focused on the pride of being on the Lancers than the actual war while Serena has her heart in the right place, she's done some horrible things when still loyal to the Academia. Reiji and Kurosaki are Dark Grey, while still having good intentions, have done some horrible actions and aren't stopping anytime soon. Dennis is Black, being an Academia spy. Reira and Tsukikage are unaffiliated, simply following Reiji's orders for differing reasons.

In episode 55 when Yugo and Yuzu get into a riding duel with Security, Yuzu points out just how incredibly dangerous "card games on motorcycles" would be in real life, even without the Hard Light making the attacks real and possibly causing a wipeout, and even suggests stopping and dueling him normally for safety reasons. Doesn't stop Yugo from continuing the duel though, nor does it stop him from scaring Yuzu silly with half the stunts he pulls during it. The Lancers also get in on this quite a bit.

Casting Gag: In the English dub, Sawatari's father is voiced by Mike Pollock, very clearly channeling Jean-Louis Bonaparte from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX's English dub, ironic considering they're both short, fat, balding men with a Hair-Trigger Temper.

When Reiji tries to get them involved in the war, the council refuses on the basis that it doesn't benefit the competitive system the City runs on.

Culture Clash
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_70ade2c4
comment
Culture Clash: The council at least claims this is at the core of the issues the protagonists face in the Synchro dimension. For example: Deliberate Values Dissonance: The Synchro dimension holds values and beliefs that create a terribly unstable society, but because everyone agrees with these values the protagonists cannot inspire change by appealing to the people's better nature. Shinji is able to rally the crowds because he holds the same beliefs, and his arguments align with the values held in the City and the idea of a better world. Your Normal Is Our Taboo: Nobody cares about the institutionalized slavery because of how it functions. Culture Justifies Anything: The City has 99% of it's people living in squalor, but the cultural beliefs mean that almost everyone thinks this system is fair. When Reiji tries to get them involved in the war, the council refuses on the basis that it doesn't benefit the competitive system the City runs on.

Jigsaw Puzzle Plot
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_715704e5
comment
Jigsaw Puzzle Plot: The Yu-Gi-Oh! version. It starts out with Yuto, the Dark Duelist, mostly about who he is, why does he look just like Yuya, how does he know Yuzu and what happened to him. For a while we only got bits and piece like Yuzu looked like a friend of his Ruri that was kidnapped and some group called the Academia was his enemy. This eventually was shown to have been planned from the start as his story was revealed to be a huge interdimensional war between dimensions that resembled previous Yu-Gi-Oh! series. While we have gotten a lot of answers, many still remain from why Yuya and Yuzu are the only characters with an Identical Stranger, what are they and why does Leo want to fuse the dimensions. Also, what exactly is the "ARC Area Project"? Why is Yusho so important that people kept sending him to other dimensions? Ultimately, some answers are provided in a near literal jigsaw-like way; the answer to one mystery connects it to a different plot thread, until it's clear how almost every isolated "puzzle piece" fits into the main plot. (Ex, the solution to mystery of why Yusho vanished three years ago also explains what secrets Reiji has been keeping and what his true motives are.)

Idiot Ball
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_7286e96d
comment
Idiot Ball: Invoked in some of Yuya's dueling opponents, likely due to the fact that like all main Yu-Gi-Oh! characters, Yuya needs to win most, if not, all of his important duels. Dennis and Sawatari seem to lost all of their sense to keep secret about their advantages over the Synchro Dimension when arriving there as Shingo told the Security about Action Spells even when he wasn't asked or tortured, directly hampered Yuya as a result while Dennis used Pendulum and Xyz Summoning in a joke duel against Gongenzaka even though he doesn't have anything to gain for winning. But as Dennis is The Mole, it could be on less stupidity and more on purpose. To be fair to Dennis, unlike Sawatari, he had no idea that they were currently pitted against the Synchro Dimension. Surprisingly enough Crow in episode 87,who attributed Yuya's sudden shift in behaviour and desire to duel him rather than escape to help his friends, to mean Yuya lied to him and really is working with Roget. Instead of the fact that Yuya was clutching his head and screaming in pain, right in front of him.

Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: The characters with the "Yu" prefix all have color schemes that go along with their respective Extra Deck cards: Yuya wears a blend of orange and green, just like Pendulum Monsters. Not to mention his hair. Yuzu, Yuri, and Serena have several shades of purple to match the purple Fusion monsters. Isao Kachidoki also has purple hair and uses a Fusion monster as his ace. Roget wearing purple also hints at his true origins. Yuto has a darker color scheme, like the black Xyz monsters. Yugo wears white to go along with the white Synchro monsters. Incidentally, so does Gongenzaka. Mieru and Asuka, the only confirmed users of Ritual Summoning in the show, incorporate a few shades of blue to their designs.

Once More, with Clarity!
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_7374ab13
comment
Once More, with Clarity!: In episode 54, the flashback Yuto had in episode 18, is once again shown from Yugo's perspective, solidifying that their conflict was not only a misunderstanding but quite possibly planned out by Yuri. It happens again in episode 80 Yuya finally gets to talk to Sora about him getting away when the rest of the cast realized that Yuzu was missing, this scene was played out as Sora running away to avoid capture or being questioned about her whereabouts, but in Sora's flashback of the same events, we see that Sora, (thinking the Obelisk Force had captured Yuzu instead of Serena) went back to Academia to search for her and presumably bring her back to Maiami City, making very clear he would never let anyone take Yuzu prisoner.

Arc Words
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_7464705c
comment
Arc Words: "The fun has just begun" seems to be a recurrent phrase, as it shows in the plot, openings and endings mostly by Yuya. It has also been used by some of the more morally ambiguous characters as well. For Yuto and Kurosaki, "Hangyaku" (Rebellion). It's mentioned in their summon chants for both of their ace monsters. "Smile" or also commonly known as "egao", which has been repeated a few dozen times. "Become One" or "hitotsu ni" is repeated throughout the show with its meaning changing based on the side that uses it. When the Academia or Zarc use it, the phrase means a forceful physical fusion like the Academia trying to fuse the dimensions or Zarc trying to fuse his counterparts to revive. When the good guys use it, it means someone was able to emotionally unite the audience through their dueling.

The complex morality, Anyone Can Be Carded and Loads and Loads of Characters reflects realistically an interdimensional war, unlike many other series which only focus on a relatively small group of characters that aren't justified by being The Chosen Ones. Likewise, the characters that do get singled out by various parties are chosen either because they have magical powers, or because they're extremely famous and able to convince the masses to take certain actions because of their popularity.

The Big Bad Shuffle
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_77eeb348
comment
The Big Bad Shuffle: For the first season it seems like Leo Corp, particularly Reiji, are the villains. Then in the second half of the season after the reveal of the parallel dimension plot, it turns out Reiji is fighting his father Leo, the real villain. Then in Season 2 Leo becomes a distant Greater-Scope Villain while the Arc Villain for the season, Roget, takes center stage. Roget is hinted to be working for Leo but it turns out he has betrayed Leo and is an independent force. Then once Roget is defeated and we get to Season 3, Leo is once again the main Big Bad. Until the whole backstory concerning the original dimension comes out; now Leo is part of a Big-Bad Ensemble with Zarc, an even greater threat that Leo is working to destroy in ways that still make him an antagonist. But being that Zarc is currently still dead, his reincarnation Yuri is trying to help speed up his revival.

The Game Come to Life: A big reveal in episode 126 was real solid vision actually created bodies for the monsters to inhibit thus every monster in the show is alive. This turns out to be a cruel deconstruction as the monsters got sick of the Original Dimension's vicious dueling and grew to hate humanity as a result, feeling like their toys. Rewatch the show and you see plenty of monsters reacting to their environment and not just Yuya's monsters or the Four Dimension Dragons.

Good Counterpart: By episode 52, LDS is this to the Academia.

Episode 127 reveals the Four Dimension Bracelets are this to the Four Dimension Dragons. Leo created the cards that would become the bracelets to absorb the willpower of life to continue as the opposite of the power of hatred the dragons have.

Leo Akaba, the only known survivor of the original dimension even lost his memory as a result of the split. Zarc's second defeat and seal turns the Standard Dimension into the Pendulum Dimension, allowing duelists to Pendulum summon. But no one has any memory of it with the exceptions of Reiji and Yosho, and Reira is reborn as a baby.

Breather Episode: Episode 38, while not entirely light has comic relief that was absent after the incredibly dark Episodes 34 through 37. After a series of relatively high intensity and serious episodes, Episode 57 cooled things off a bit by having Dennis and Gogenzaka become impromptu street performers. Episode 73 has no on-screen duels and is basically politics and character development with one side-plot being mildly explored. Reiji is proven to have been taking well-calculated moves to save the Lancers who have been enslaved over the past few episodes instead of heartlessly throwing people aside, and Yuya gets a letter through to Yuzu. Comes right before the extremely intense Dennis vs Kurosaki duel.

Continuity Cavalcade: Everything about Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend's summon sequence screams 5Ds, to the point where it's effectively a recreation of Red Nova Dragon's summon sequence, including the Double Tuning schtick, the flaming red Tuning rings, Scarlight's pose during the animation, and the Crimson Dragon's cameo in the background. Tyrant Red Dragon Archfiend even looks aesthetically similar to Red Nova Dragon.

Alternate Universe: This is the explanation for the alternate dimensions, which were split into four from the original dimension due to Zarc and Ray. The Fusion Dimension's Academia is based on GX's Duel Academy with Obelisk Force as their elite warriors, the Synchro Dimension has the D-Wheel and a classist City similar to 5Ds, and the Xyz Dimension has Heartland City as in ZeXal. It is implied that Standard dimension was originally the Duel Monsters dimension, without any special Extra Deck summoning methods, but later research led to their creation.

New Rules as the Plot Demands
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_867c3744
comment
New Rules as the Plot Demands: Subverted. When Yuya literally creates the new Pendulum Monsters and Pendulum Summons mechanic out of nowhere in the middle of his duel in the first episode, Strong Ishijima actually asks if that is legal. The only reason he lets it slide, is because the SYSTEM considers it legal. And even then once the public realize Pendulum Summoning requires special cards, they consider Yuya a cheat. Since Yuya doesn't fully understand the Pendulum mechanic himself, it feels like this when a part of the mechanic occurs that he himself didn't know. That said, this only happens a few times and had already been explained in real life.

Black and Gray Morality: The conflict within the Synchro Dimension is this. Shinji represents the lighter end of the scale with his desire for fairer treatment from Tops and lack of regard for those who stand in his way. The Executive Council is a Darker Gray that will do anything to maintain the status quo (up to and including allying with Academia). For Black, Roget wants power and will use any means necessary to get it.

The first arc utilized this, splitting up Yuya and Yuzu to have the latter interact with the Dark Duelist until the two lines merged at the Tournament Arc. The Tournament Arc itself utilizes some Third Line, Some Waiting and Four Lines, All Waiting due to splitting up the focus between various groups, as well as to avoid Arc Fatigue by giving all of the focus characters a chance to have screentime and develop.

Revisiting the Roots: ARC-V stands out of the Yu-Gi-Oh! spin-offs because it shows the older ways of advanced summoning (Fusion, Ritual, Synchro and Xyz) alongside the newest (Pendulum) and considers them as much of special. It also brings back old school's monsters and past archetypes, pleasing many fans. Turns out the series also returns to the settings of the past series as well.

The Battle Royale sub-arc has a total of 15 note 7 from the Youth Division Lancers, the three Knights of Duels (Carl, Ashley and Bram), Hikage, Michio, Teppei, Halil and Olga characters carded, all of them teenagers on the good guys' side. While we do have assholes mixed in, the vast majority were people that just wanted to defend their home. Yuri making an appearance, Yuya suffering from a lot of Break the Cutie moments and Yuzu being chased around by Yuri for a night and being teleported away. Finally culminating in Yuya having his biggest break the cutie moment when he finds out Yuzu is missing or maybe even carded.

Reiji is the first one shown and arguably fits the role closest despite his morally ambiguously ways in the start of the show.

In the final arc, he prepared and organized the plan that allowed Yuya to pacify Zarc.

Rewatch Bonus: A LOT. Due to the extensive foreshadowing in the background, a lot of harmless or odd sentences become a lot more damning with a rewatch. The Mieru vs Yuya duel for example starts with Mieru using a coin with a dragon and demon on opposite sides for some reason. We later learn of Yuya's original self, Zarc who is described as the Demon Duelist and became a dragon himself.

Boring Yet Practical: Action Cards. Compared to many of the complex cards used in duels, their effects are simple and straightforward; negate an attack, negate a card's destruction, boost/lower a monster's stats, and so forth. But when seized and activated at the right time, they can swing the momentum in a duel.

They do this again when Mieru shows up in front of Yuzu. Fortunately, they hold her back.

Merchandise-Driven: Very downplayed, while the show like all other spinoff was created to sell cards, plot and characters come first. There have been times when duels have been skipped or just shown the end like Sora and Kurosaki's rematch to continue the flow of the plot. Yuri's duel with Asuka in episode 123, where he suddenly chooses to use an Ancient Gear deck instead of his own, can be seen as the most blatant form of this trope. In his first turn he quickly busts out and utilizes nearly every new card to be featured in a Structure Deck that would also be released near the time of the episode's airing.

Good Parents: ARC-V shows the You Show School children's parents as supporting and caring towards them. Yusho constantly encouraged Yuya in his flashbacks, Yoko is always watching over him, Shuzou is seeing worrying over his daughter's troubled behavior and Futoshi's and Ayu's parents took time out of their agendas in order to be in the stadium to cheer for their children. Even Gongenzaka and Reiji are frequently seen with a parent. Averted with Mr. Sawatari and Leo Akaba, though...

comment
Mood Whiplash: One of the biggest example could be the MCS arc; it started like any Tournament Arc until Sora vs. Kurosaki's duel, where 31 episodes of friendship and sport-like dueling were introduced to the concept of dueling as war, where only the strongest survives, in only one episode. Episode 39 takes the cake, we start out with a normal duel with Yuya even being the Butt-Monkey in the beginning. The duel slowly gets darker due to Kachidoki's actions, till finally Yuya's Super-Powered Evil Side awakens and we head straight into Nightmare Fuel.

Ascended Extra: Little Fairy. No, seriously: the minor card from Zexal was a major part of two major duels in the series, after cameoing as normal for older cards in a single duel like much more famous cards like Dark Resonator, Gale the Whirlwind, Legendary Fisherman, and Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth.

comment
The Lancers are a subversion. Most of them barely know each other and have trouble working together as a result. Only Yuya and Gongenzaka are really close, Sawatari is The Friend Nobody Likes with most of the team ignoring him, Kurosaki likes to work alone, Reira, Reiji, and Tsukikage form another group where Reira and Tsukikage are loyal to Reiji for reasons other than friendship, Serena is very confrontational, and Dennis is The Mole. By the end of the series they play this straight due to the trials they overcame. To the point they rushed to face Zarc to help each other out.

Deliberate Values Dissonance: The Synchro dimension holds values and beliefs that create a terribly unstable society, but because everyone agrees with these values the protagonists cannot inspire change by appealing to the people's better nature. Shinji is able to rally the crowds because he holds the same beliefs, and his arguments align with the values held in the City and the idea of a better world.

Dramatic Irony: In Episode 33, Sora underestimates Raid Raptors — Rise Falcon. The LDS trio snarks to not underestimate it. It's almost Black Comedy as before they lost their memories, they underestimated that very monster before Kurosaki beat them down with it. Dennis' status as The Mole has was revealed to the audience fairly quickly after his introduction, but none of the heroes were aware until episode 74. Prior to his duel with Serena, Yugo makes a promise to Yuzu in heaven. This is immediately followed by a scene cut to Yuzu sneezing while sitting in an alleyway with Frank, Tanner, and Amanda.

comment
Soundtrack Dissonance: The openings are always incredibly positive, but the second opening played during the incredibly dark and downright depressing Battle Royale sub-arc. While the third opening and ending are incredibly happy and joyful, episode 50, where these songs were first shown, was a dark and depressing episode when Yuya finally breaks. That being said, the latter two do demonstrate a reasonably serious tone. This is taken up to eleven when the fourth opening and ending are incredibly positive and heartwarming but they played during some of the darker episodes of the series with Yuzu being thrown off a highway and Yuya being electrocuted, triggering his and his counterparts' Super-Powered Evil Side, Zarc.

 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_ac7b87df
comment
Off-Model: Episode 9 has characters with bad drawn faces. Episode 12's animation isn't fantastic when looking at the characters, though the monsters were well-done. Episode 29 has some animation errors, even though the duel is rather well animated. Most notably the crowd characters suffer from bad animations, blatantly with Hokuto and Yaiba's facial expressions. Episode 35 is rather badly animated. Maybe because of the previous episode. Episode 46 suffers a similar case. The previous episode was an Animation Bump, but this episode was not so good in terms of animation, especially the first half. However, the animation of Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon was the highlight of the episode, which might be another justification why the rest of the episode wasn't animated so well. Episode 61's animation and proportions are absolutely horrendous, with several characters looking like they have slanted faces, Gongenzaka looking squashed in every group shot, a lot of background characters having "dead eyes" and having a Dull Surprise expression on their face when their not over exaggerating their emotions to a ridiculous degree, and even the monsters themselves are draw rather "derp"ishly. Unlike the above examples, it doesn't have the excuse of the previous episode being an Animation Bump or all the budget going specifically to one monster summon. It turns out that the next episode would have an animation bump. Episode 71 had some very strange facial proportions for many shots of Yuya and Yuzu. One shot has Odd-Eyes Saber Dragon look very round and cartoony. The following episode was an animation bump. Despite the Animation Bump in episode 72, there are a few shots with questionable quality, especially this one. Episode 80 has a problem with hands. While the faces weren't as badly drawn as some of the other off-model episodes, Yuya's limb proportions in many shots leave much to be desired. Episode 81, despite having Ebina as the animation director, shows Roget with his nose drawn horribly. In episodes 87-88, the faces of Yuya and his counterparts and some other characters aren't drawn very well at some occassions. The non-CG appearances of Odd-Eyes Pendulum, Dark Rebellion and Odd-Eyes Rebellion are rather horrendous. Episode 89 had awesome art for facial expressions, but not when the faces are zoomed out◊. Episode 102 had lackluster art. The faces of many characters who aren't Kaito are often drawn badly. Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon's non-CG appearance is horrible. With the well-drawn stock footage in-between, it's really jarring. And then there is the big size issue with Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon. Yuzu and Asuka are drawn rather badly after the duel in episode 106. Like episode 46 though; this may have been due to the impressive debut of Starve Venom Fusion Dragon. Episode 114 had possibly the worst shot in franchise history with the shot where Yusho catches Dennis's card. The proportions of the character are positively awful. Episode 118 has some emotionless faces in inappropriate situations, like Gongenzaka's during the Tear Jerker moment. Episode 119 had apparently not enough budget for most of episode's art and animation when they spent their money on Kurosaki's Falcons. The animation dump of the next episode doesn't help.

Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_b0004332
comment
Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: ARC-V is filled with Dragons due to the Four Dimension Dragons and previous rivals' aces. Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and its evolutions, Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon, Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, Yuri's Dragon, Jack's Red Demon's Dragon Scar-right, and if one feels like stretching it, Constellar Ptolemy M7, which is a Machine-Type in dragon form. Later on, there's also the biggest dragon in the show, the Supreme Dragon King Zarc, which is literally a fusion between Odd-Eyes, Dark Rebellion, Clear Wing, Starve Venom, Yuya, Yuto, Yugo and Yuri (although at this point, Yuya had absorbed Yuto about 100 episodes earlier, Yuri had absorbed Yugo a few episodes earlier, and Yuya absorbed Yuri (and as a result also Yugo) just moments before, thus becoming Zarc only to summon Astrograph Magician to fuse himself with his 4 Dragons.) Yuya and his alternative selves have dragons as their aces with the third word in their name referring to the type of card that they are. Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon, Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, and Starve Venom Fusion Dragon and their various evolutions.

Luxury Prison Suite: Enjoy Chojiro had one as he gets fine food and accommodations due to being the Boss for 10 years. While not necessarily luxurious, Serena was much better off compared to the male Lancers during the Security Prison Arc. Especially compared to Kurosaki who was the only other person captured that was separated from the main group (though this was because the former was going to be the subject of interrogation while the later got there because of the fights he started up) Ruri and Rin are revealed to have been living very nice rooms while in the Fusion Dimension. Makes sense when you realize they're parts of Leo's daughter

Duels Decide Everything
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_b2919411
comment
The main and supporting characters generally act more realistic and actually try to solve their problems outside dueling, averts Duels Decide Everything. See Reality Ensues. Likewise, duels are only ever important because of the franchise-set rules about dueling being a conductor for supernatural forcesnote Specifically, dueling is used as a tool of war because it allows people to steal their opponents souls, and about dueling being extremely popular to the massesnote The MCS tournament was used to warn the entire Standard dimension about Academia because people would be watching it worldwide, and the Friendship Cup was used to put a revolution on hold because some people would stop fighting if they could watch a really interesting duel.

Magical Accessory: Yuya's pendulum pendant. In the very first episode, it turns some of his Effect Monsters into Pendulum Monsters... and that's about it. Even after 90 episodes, that's the only thing it has ever done. Yuzu's bracelet, and by extension the bracelets of all of her dimensional counterparts, fit more in line with this trope, as they resonate in response to bad things happening to Yuya and his dimensional counterparts.

Gilded Cage: Academia is this for Serena though she is known for her attempts in escapes. In the Synchro dimension, the Lancers were held here for the Friendship Cup. They can only leave if they have a match and must return back if they win. Though it's more smaller than most examples as it's closer to a high class hotel than a mansion but due to the class division between the Tops and the Commons, it is easily seen as this.

 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_b53077b3
comment
Take That!: While watching the duel between Gongenzaka and Synchro user Yaiba, the children comment on Yaiba's large amount of Special Summoning with something akin to distaste and mention it's like he's "playing solitaire". Synchro Summoning was seen by many casual players as a point where the game began losing a lot of player interaction as the game began focusing more on Special Summoning and began regarding it as boring. There are two moments regarding playing monsters in Defense Position. When Gongenzaka Tribute Summons his Superheavy Samurai Big Benkei in face-up Defense Position, a confused Yaiba wonders how he did this; Gongenzaka explains it's because of his monster's effect. Previous series (barring ZEXAL) ignored the fact that Monster Cards cannot be Normal Summoned in face-up Defense Position. Later, Yuya is surprised that Mieru sets a monster in face-down Defense Position, a nod to the fact that since GX nobody ever set a Monster Card in face-down position (again, barring ZEXAL). The first time Yuzu attempts to Fusion Summon, her Duel Disk gives an error because she accidentally shuffled her Fusion Monster into her Main Deck rather than her Extra Deck. Previous series before 5D's didn't have Duel Disks with Extra Deck Zones, heavily implying that Duelists would just put their Fusion Monsters in their Main Decks. Even in 5D's, the Extra Deck Zone on a Duel Disk was only ever accessed once in the series, and Jack and Yusei were both constantly shown to put their Synchro Monsters in their Main Decks. The Obelisk Force often times uses strategies similar to real life competitive players: lots of cards that remove monsters from the field and prevent their opponent from counter attacking. They are also Smug Super whose methods are treated as dirty, underhanded and disgraceful.

Conspicuous CG: Some of the bigger monsters, just like Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon or DDD Great Death Lord, Hell Armageddon. Many sequences during Riding Duels in the Synchro Dimension. Literally every single Dragon that appears on-screen is done with CGI. No exceptions. It doesn't matter if it's Odd-Eyes, Dark Rebellion, Clear Wing, Starving Venom, the Supreme King Servant Dragons (Zarc's versions of the four Dimension Dragons) or even Supreme Dragon King ZARC himself!

Dull Surprise
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_c1b2c63f
comment
Episode 61's animation and proportions are absolutely horrendous, with several characters looking like they have slanted faces, Gongenzaka looking squashed in every group shot, a lot of background characters having "dead eyes" and having a Dull Surprise expression on their face when their not over exaggerating their emotions to a ridiculous degree, and even the monsters themselves are draw rather "derp"ishly. Unlike the above examples, it doesn't have the excuse of the previous episode being an Animation Bump or all the budget going specifically to one monster summon. It turns out that the next episode would have an animation bump.

Cutting the Knot: It happens pretty often for a Yu-Gi-Oh! Show. During the LDS vs You Show school duels, the protagonists research their opponents in order to learn more about them. Episode 46, Gongenzaka and others hold down Yuya's Super-Powered Evil Side, and Yuya just tries to get his cards back by kicking their asses. Episode 50, Yuya is so pissed off by Reiji's actions that instead of challenging him to a duel, he just tries to sucker punch him.

New Powers as the Plot Demands
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_c26e2b1
comment
Characters build their decks much more realistically — they run multiple copies of cards, use simple but effective combos with them, and staple cards are common. There's also significant drop of new cards appearing from nowhere, and an increase in the same cards appearing over and over as duelists rely on them.

True Companions: Yuya, Yuzu and Gongenzaka are this. The three have been friends since they were children and have deep loyalty to each other. The Lancers are a subversion. Most of them barely know each other and have trouble working together as a result. Only Yuya and Gongenzaka are really close, Sawatari is The Friend Nobody Likes with most of the team ignoring him, Kurosaki likes to work alone, Reira, Reiji, and Tsukikage form another group where Reira and Tsukikage are loyal to Reiji for reasons other than friendship, Serena is very confrontational, and Dennis is The Mole. By the end of the series they play this straight due to the trials they overcame. To the point they rushed to face Zarc to help each other out.

Hope Spot: In episode 37, Yuto and Yugo fall into some sort of trance after both of their dragons are summoned, which makes them both duel more viciously than normal. Yuya is able to bring Yuto back to his senses, and tries to snap Yugo out of it as well. When Yugo uses a monster effect on his own dragon rather than Yuto's, Yuya briefly thinks Yugo has returned to normal, but it turns out there was an additional effect to Clear Wing Synchro Dragon's monster effect that Yuya wasn't aware of that powered it up before delivering the finishing blow. A rather cruel one in Episode 48. Michio and Teppei join in the tag match of Tsukikage, Serena, and Kurosaki vs the Obelisk Force. And through their teamwork, they are able to halve the life points of the Obelisk Force. Till they turn it around and defeat both Michio and Teppei, sealing them both into cards. Episode 135 has Yuya defeat Yuri using Odd-Eyes, Dark Rebellion and Clear Wing, giving the idea that Yuya, Yuto and Yugo successfully repealed Zarc. Only for Zarc to reveal he was able to take over Yuya's body at the last minute and fully revive.

Cliffhanger
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_c6b8d37a
comment
Cliffhanger: A meta example. After the gruesome battle in episode 34, there's a one week hiatus leaving the awaited episode 35 on hold. Another meta example that there is another one week hiatus between episode 84 and 85 which is also the duel between Yugo (to an extend, Yuya due to Synchronization) and Serena. There's a week of hiatus between episode 87 and episode 88 due of New Year's holiday. Averted with Episode 64-65. Episode 64 ends with Yuya being thrown off his bike to land on his neck, but the immediately following preview reassures the audience that Yuya is unhurt. Episode 77 ended with Yuzu being thrown through a window, with billowing smoke from her crash landing blocking any view of the damage she was dealt. The audience was left with no idea of how hurt Yuzu was.

Bait-and-Switch Credits
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_c76b215e
comment
Bait-and-Switch Credits: The first opening shows Sawatari holding his three Darts Shooting cards. However, since he replaces them for another deck in episode 7, three episodes after they are revealed in the opening, they have become meaningless. The second opening shows participants of the Junior Youth Championship in a prominent way, these includes the students from the various Duel Schools and the LDS trio. None of them is actually important to the tournament plot and they are eliminated pretty early, most of them off-screen or very quick. Particularly, the LDS trio, who are supporting characters, are highlighted with the rest of the supporting cast, but all of them besides Masumi, who was eliminated before the opening was first aired, suffer from The Worf Effect and they have lost their prominence in the show. Sora is also shown to among the ranks of LDS, which might foreshadow that he will eventually leaves You Show, but Sora never joins LDS and he even antagonizes them. The third opening depicts a vicious battle between an angry Yuya and Yugo, using Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon and Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, respectively. Presumably, it was setting up a war between them, as Yuya is on a mission to rescue Yuzu, who Yugo accidentally whisked away. In the show proper, not only does Yuya not use Odd-Eyes Rebellion during the span the show used this opening except at the beginning, but he and Yugo never duel. Their only meeting came at the end of episode 91, and they never spoke - they just dueled their opponents in the same room. What's more, neither of the two bear any ill will towards each other; in fact, Yugo seems to think Yuya's a pretty cool guy if Yuzu thinks so highly of him. Furthermore, Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon has never fired a Breath Weapon during the entire series so far. The fourth opening features Yuya's rematch with Jack Atlas. Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon is fighting Red Daemon's Dragon Scarlight in the opening, but Yuya does not summon it during the rematch. The entire third ending shows the Lancers getting along and getting into shenanigans. The only thing that reflects the content of the show is Yuya in a (different) riding suit. The final ending shows the counterpart pairs hanging out with shots of all eight at the end. First Yuri and Serena aren't friends like the other three pairs and finally since Yuto, Yugo, Yuri, Serena, Rin and Ruri lose their bodies at the end of the show, all eight can never physically hang out like the ending.

Two Lines, No Waiting
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_ca7ec334
comment
Two Lines, No Waiting: The first arc utilized this, splitting up Yuya and Yuzu to have the latter interact with the Dark Duelist until the two lines merged at the Tournament Arc. The Tournament Arc itself utilizes some Third Line, Some Waiting and Four Lines, All Waiting due to splitting up the focus between various groups, as well as to avoid Arc Fatigue by giving all of the focus characters a chance to have screentime and develop. The line splits again after a dimensional portal mishap at the end of the Synchro Dimension arc sends Yuya, Kurosaki, Gongenzaka, and Sawatari to the Xyz Dimension, while Yuzu is sent to the Fusion Dimension.

 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_cc7fae30
comment
Outside-Context Problem: Academia to everyone. First they caught the Xyz Dimension completely off-guard and used the element of surprise to decimate them. Then Reiji specifically avoided this trope by calling the Standard dimension's attention to Academia directly after their first minor attack, convincing them to militarize so they wouldn't be caught off guard the same way. Finally, nobody in the Synchro dimension except the Council and Roget believe Academia exists, leading to characters who have already been told about the inter-dimensional war making false assumptions about the protagonists based on what they know to be true in their own dimension.

Spoiler Opening: The second opening shows the Professor's machine with that glowing green light, which first appears in episode 36. In this opening and everytime we see it in the anime, the machine is absorbing cards — the souls of people trapped inside them. The second ending heavily hints at Yuto fusing with Yuya a good 5 episodes before it happened. The second ending and the third opening give subtle hints that Yuya was either going to acquire Yuto's powers or gain access to the Real Solid Vision system without the large projectors that are normally required. Turns out it's the latter. The fourth opening has Leo drop the Bracelet Girls into the huge machine behind him. Turns out that is exactly what he does.

Unexpected Character
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_cfd5cbd3
comment
Unexpected Character: The appearance of already existing mainstream archetypes, including some that appeared in the Duel Terminal series, something that has never happened in an anime barring 5D's with the Allies of Justice. Heck, the very fact that the other Extra Deck monsters were showing up frequently and as plot points was an unexpected move. Yuto and Kurosaki count as well: there was no indication early on aside in-series that they would show up, but they took over the plot quite quickly. Then came Academia. Then there's Yosenju. Although since Sawatari (with his lackeys) did the commercial narration for Tribe Force (an OCG-only special booster which introduced them), this came mostly unexpected to the Western viewers. The inclusion of in-archetype cards previously introduced in the manga and the OCG. It started small, with Performapal Silver Claw and D/D Proud Chevalier, and then actually included very useful cards like Death-Toy Scissor Tiger, D/D/D Oblivion King Abyss Ragnarok, and Raid Raptors - Force Strix, and these aren't always cameos either. Ok who expected Jack and Crow? Kaito appearing in the Xyz Dimension was already expected by many fans; Asuka and Edo, however, is a whole other story. No one was expecting a cameo of The Crimson Dragon The appearance of new Earthbound Immortal cards caught a lot of viewers by surprise. No one expected Gladiator Beasts to appear, as a major antagonists decktype! Let alone TWO major antagonists decktypes!

comment
Cerebus Syndrome: ARC-V itself started very lighthearted with some dark elements here and there as per the Yu-Gi-Oh! standard; with the arrival of Yuto and Kurosaki, things started to get progressively darker and more continuity-based. By episode 39, the series' focus is an interdimensional war. The series lightened a bit for the first few episodes of the Synchro Dimension arc before promptly diving back into darker territory and the entire premise of the Xyz Dimension arc makes it even worse. The Fusion Dimension arc gets even darker when the backstory of the series is finally revealed.

This actually gets Played for Drama in the Synchro Dimension arc where a character greatly misinterprets what Jack Atlas was trying to tell him when he handed him a low level card. He completely overlooks the obvious fact that he was just handed a tuner monster with additional abilities. He then comes to loath Jack, thinking him a traitor to the commons who has just called him worthless.

Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: The Fusion Faction hunted Heartland's Xyz users for fun and profit. Made worse with the reveal that the war was started in order to kidnap a single girl.

Hoist by His Own Petard: At the beginning of Episode 63, three Elite Mooks pursuing Yuya and his crew intend on overwhelming the party by summoning a Zerg Rush of Goyo monsters. After the party is backed into a corner, Kurosaki pulls a Big Damn Heroes by dropping out of the sky and pulling a two-card combo with his opening hand that summons Raid Raptors - Rise Falcon. He uses one Overlay Unit to add the combined ATK of all seven Special Summoned Monsters controlled by the mooks to Rise Falcon, jacking its ATK to 7900. He then proceeds to attack all monsters on the field for a triple OTK.

Living MacGuffin: Yuzu and all of her alternate dimension counterparts are the overall targets of the chessmaster characters; Leo Akaba is gathering them for some unknown reason, Reiji intends on protecting them from the other chessmasters, and Roget wants them so Leo can't have them. Their actual function in the grand scheme of things has yet to be revealed, however. Later revealed that they are parts of Leo's daughter Ray, who defeated Zarc. His quest is to revive her and have her finish Zarc.

Rescue Arc: The Fusion arc involves around the Lancers and Yusho's forces going on a rescue mission to retrieve the remaining three bracelet girls (Serena, Ruri, and Rin), who are already corrupted by Academia. However, they're not the only ones: Yugo is doing the same thing as well, and has an Unfinished Business with Yuri.

comment
The final two conflicts are A Lighter Shade of Grey and Evil Versus Oblivion, with three sides all fighting each other. On one side there's Zarc, who wants to destroy the world. To combat him, Leo Akaba instigated the inter-dimensional war so he'd be able to revive Ray, the only person able to stop Zarc. Reiji, the Lancers, and Yusho are fighting both of them by trying to prevent the apocalypse without stooping to the same level as Leo.

Red Herring
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_dbca2c99
comment
Red Herring: There were a lot of hints along the way that Reiji's Ambiguously Evil status was because he was either going to become an antagonist in some manner. These hints particularly intensified with the reveal of Zarc, who has similar silver hair as Reiji, is also a master of the Extra Deck summoning methods, and is referred to as a "Demon Duelist"; Reiji's deck theme D/D/D stands for "Different Dimension Demon." However, by the end of the series nothing came of this, and any similarities between Zarc and Reiji and hints the latter may turn evil somehow are just this trope.

Tangled Family Tree: The Akabas are revealed to have one hell of a family tree. At first it was pretty clean with Leo as the father, Himika as the mother and Reiji and Reira as their children. Then we have the reveal that Reira is adopted, not too shocking. It gets really confusing when Ray is revealed to not only be Leo's daughter but also the original form of the Bracelet girls. Making Yuzu, Ruri, Serena and Rin Reiji's half sisters technically. And that's not counting how the tree extends to Yuzu's dad or Kurosaki.

Tiger Versus Dragon

comment
Tiger Versus Dragon: The duel between Yuya and Kachidoki seems to represent this. Kachidoki is straightforward and focused on the prize, willing to plain old assault his opponents in order to slow them down, representing the Tiger. Yuya is more soft in his dueling, as he looks to have a connection with both the opponent and the audience and tries to use duels in order to bring people together, representing the Dragon (which also is his Animal Motif). It's also shown that Kachidoki holds a grudge towards Yuya, who is oblivious and Kachidoki considered their duel to be the work of fate.

Pretext for War: Of the "these guys are evil, so we need an excuse to attack them" variety. While it's true that Academia is an evil, dimension-invading genocidal child-soldier employing military force, Leo Akaba has never actually tried to take over Standard. He sent a small squadron there with the intent of capturing two girls, but he didn't give a crap what happened to any other people in Standard. Reiji and Himika take the footage of this squad butting heads with the MCS participants to make it look like Academia has already tried invading and that their world is in immediate danger in order to whip the world into a frenzy.

Gameplay and Story Integration: Reiji is trying to reverse-engineer Yuya's Pendulum monsters to create his own, but it's taking effort. The first time he uses the cards he's created, D/D Savant Kepler and D/D Savant Galilei, they malfunction, because he hasn't perfected them yet. This is represented in-game with their extremely detrimental Pendulum effects that cause them to become almost unusable after one turn — their Pendulum scales change to a much narrower spread, and they then destroy any monster their controller has in place with a Level not within their scales.

Dennis and Sawatari seem to lost all of their sense to keep secret about their advantages over the Synchro Dimension when arriving there as Shingo told the Security about Action Spells even when he wasn't asked or tortured, directly hampered Yuya as a result while Dennis used Pendulum and Xyz Summoning in a joke duel against Gongenzaka even though he doesn't have anything to gain for winning. But as Dennis is The Mole, it could be on less stupidity and more on purpose. To be fair to Dennis, unlike Sawatari, he had no idea that they were currently pitted against the Synchro Dimension.

Crossover: There is a kickass V-Jump wallpaper, showing Yuya with Beast-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and Super Saiyan Son Goku with Shenron/Shenlong from Dragon Ball. It was also a spoiler, since it was published before Beast-Eyes' debut. In-canon, it has become one with every past spin-off; Asuka and Edo from GX, Crow and Jack from 5Ds, and Kaito from ZEXAL, are now involved in the plot. The three other dimensions are based on the same spin-offs. However the dimensions aren't the same as the worlds that they were based on. Episode 73 was the 777th episode of the franchise, which was celebrated with a special opening featuring all other YuGiOh protagonists, as well as Yuya.

One Steve Limit: Averted. There are two You Show Duel Schools, but they're in other dimensions: one in Standard and one in the Fusion Dimension.

 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_ef3d1b57
comment
Technician vs. Performer: It seems that, despite Action Duels being more interactive and being meant to be entertainment, few people take the idea of making it a show seriously, with some only doing it by having flashy Monsters. Technicians play more traditionally, letting their Monsters to do the fighting, unlike Yuya and his dad, who are Performers to the core and move around the arena with their Monsters and like to keep their audience in suspense. Overall You Show characters are taught to be performers. One of the main points of the school is for duelists to interact with their monsters and use Action Cards to their fullest.

Drama-Preserving Handicap: Invoked. When Dennis and Kurosaki decide to hold an underground gambling Riding Duel to see who gets to go to the Friendship Cup, the latter starts with a measly 1000 LP in order to make sure his opponent might actually win the duel. They still manage to tie up at 100 LP by the end of the episode.

Edo falls into the latter category, and once he finally breaks out of it he manages to abuse the aforementioned Undying Loyalty of the Academia soldiers to convince his subordinates to pull a mass Heel–Face Turn.

Earth Is Young: It's revealed near the end of the series that the 4 Dimensions were created not that long ago. It's debatable how long ago considering we know that Zarc and Ray can manipulate memories but the four dimensions are at least 14 years old.

War Is Hell
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_f1d6144a
comment
War Is Hell: The series does not pull its punches when showing the realities of war. With the Akaba's using realistic propaganda to draft soldiers, child soldiers being sociopaths because they were mislead by adults or because they were forced to kill to survive and realistically showing that anyone can die in a war, even the civilians. Not to mention characters who have been on the frontline having varying shades of PTSD, including Reira, who was orphaned as a child in a war that involved guns and bombs instead of duel monsters. And this was all before the story went to an actual battlefield, discounting flashbacks and the MCS championships, since there were only a handful of soldiers and civilians present. The actual battlefield has helpless refugees being hunted down and infants being carded. Not to mention from Asuka's backstory we learn that deserters of Academia are killed on sight, and anyone caught draft-dodging is considered disposable.

The Earth-Prime Theory: Episode 36 revealed that the ARC-V dimension, Standard is the basis for all the other dimensions. Subverted. Episode 127 revealed that the original dimension was actually destroyed and Standard is just one of the four dimension created in the wake of Zarc's defeat.

Darkest Hour
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_f91d1d4f
comment
Darkest Hour: The Battle Royale sub-arc has a total of 15 note 7 from the Youth Division Lancers, the three Knights of Duels (Carl, Ashley and Bram), Hikage, Michio, Teppei, Halil and Olga characters carded, all of them teenagers on the good guys' side. While we do have assholes mixed in, the vast majority were people that just wanted to defend their home. Yuri making an appearance, Yuya suffering from a lot of Break the Cutie moments and Yuzu being chased around by Yuri for a night and being teleported away. Finally culminating in Yuya having his biggest break the cutie moment when he finds out Yuzu is missing or maybe even carded. Episode 92 has Barrett able to recapture Serena at the last second while Sergey is able to defeat Yuya and capture Yuzu, putting her under Roget's control. Episode 135 has Zarc finally reviving while Leo has successfully started Arc-V, starting the fusion of the four dimensions. But for some reason Ray isn't reviving due to Leo's rush. It continually gets worse as the Zarc arc continues as the Lancers and their allies, made up of the various dimension's strongest duelist failing to both defeat Zarc and make Yuya react from inside of Zarc.

The Power of Friendship
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_faece9aa
comment
While The Power of Friendship is mocked and doesn't have the same, magical-therapy or card-game-winning effect it did in previous series, good friends can take steps to remind each other You Are Not Alone and help each other pull through times of despair. Befriending Yuya and Yuzu doesn't directly lead Sora to pull a Heel–Face Turn, but he does begins looking for ways to follow orders without hurting Yuya or Yuzu because he cares about them. This gives Yuya and Yuzu an opportunity to point out some of Academia's darker traits, eventually leading Sora to doubt Academia and slowly pull a Heel–Face Turn.

Living Emotional Crutch
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_fbd1aeb
comment
Yuya freaks out when Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon is destroyed during his Duel with Sora, and everyone treats his impending loss as a terrible blow, even though there are no real stakes. This one is less due to the consequences and more due to Odd-Eyes being Yuya's Living Emotional Crutch. Also, he didn't know that Sora would still manage to stick around at the time.

Friendly Rivalry: The You Show Duel School and the Gongenzaka Dojo are considered to be rivals. But there seems to be no hard feelings involved. Gongenzaka, the heir to the Dojo is best friends with Yuzu, daughter of the current headmaster and Yuya, son of the school's founder. It is also said that the Gongenzaka Dojo students helped Yuya a lot, mostly because the majority of his duels are with them.

Alternate Self: A big plot point is that Yuya and Yuzu have 3 alternative selves. A throwaway line by Roger implies that Yuya and Yuzu are the only people to have this. With episodes 126 and 127 reveals that is because the the Dragon Boys and the Bracelet Girls original selves, Zarc and Ray were split into four when the four dimensions were created.

Reiji: He was once a normal kid that saw his family dissolve in front of his eyes. Once he found out his father became an interdimensional invader, he became the head of LDS at 13 and spent 3 years preparing a defense for his dimension and as a result is more than a little extreme in his desire to protect his home.

Theme Naming
 Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V / int_fd94c4ac
comment
Theme Naming: In keeping with the protagonist's name starting with Yu, only we now have eight of them at once this time! (Yuya, Yusho, Yuzu, Yuto, Yugo, Yuri, Yuzo, and Yuu) Man, this page is gonna get confusing to read... Yuzu is an Odd Name Out, since the U in her name is shorter. Yuya, Yuto, Yugo and Yuri are intentional since they are apparent alternate selves from four different dimensions. Of course, it works only well with the fan-spellings, but the apparent official spellings (Ute for Yuto and Hyugo for Yugo) defy it a bit. All of the Yuzus's names share connection with the other four heroines from previous Yu-Gi-Oh! Series. Yuzu (Citrus) and Anzu (Apricot) are both fruits, Serena (Moon) and Asuka (Bright Sun), Rin (Groove, Cold, Loneliness) and Aki (Autumn, Emptiness). As for Ruri, the kanji for her name is also part of several bird names when written in Japanese such as Red-flanked bluetail and Blue-and-white flycatcher, giving her a bird theme like Kotori.
