Yugo, đánh vần là Hugo trong phiên bản Nhật Japanese, là một nhân vật trong anime Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V. Cậu là bản thể trong Thứ nguyên Đồng bộ của Yuya Sakaki (Thứ nguyên Chuẩn), Yuto (Thứ nguyên Xyz), and Yuri (Thứ nguyên Dung hợp) và là một trong các đầu thai của Zarc.
Anh ta là Turbo Duelist và thường hay bị nhầm lẫn bởi các thành viên của the Resistance như việc thường bị gọi là "Tay sai của bọn Dung hợp" ("quân lính" trong phiên bản Nhật) nguyên nhân chủ yếu là do tên của cậu nghe có vẻ tương tự như "Fusion/Yūgō" trong tiếng Nhật. Yugo kiên trì trong việc truy đuổi Yuri, tuy nhiên, do nhầm lẫn khuôn mặt giống nhau và những hiểu lầm, ban đầu cậu truy tìm Yuto trong khi tìm kiếm Rin, và chỉ được nghe nói về những nhầm lẫn của mình bởi Zuzu Boyle.
Xuất hiệnYugo has the same face as his [counterparts|dimensional counterparts]. Just like the three of them, his hair is dual-colored, with yellow bangs swept to the right and blue in the back. He has greenish-blue eyes. He wears a white jacket with red borders and yellow stripes on the sleeves, along with a white jumpsuit that has red, blue, and yellow stripes that meet in the center in a chevron pattern, white gloves, shoulder, elbow and knee pads, and white, red, and gray boots.
Yugo, and his dimensional counterparts' attire are all based on the color of the cards that their dimensions are based on. As such, Yugo wears white like the color of [Monster|Synchro Monster]s. Unlike his counterparts however, the color of his hair does not correlate with his dimension, being blue and blonde rather than white.
PersonalityYugo is very impulsive and short-tempered, especially when his name is pronounced incorrectly. Because of this, Yugo frequently got into many fights against others, including [], who incorrectly stated he was a pawn of Fusion, and the [Warrior Academy|Bandit Warrior Academy] []s who mistook him for [Sakaki|Yuya Sakaki]. However, he recognizes that his short-temper can go too far, and apologized to [Boyle|Zuzu] when it made her upset.Once he has set his mind on something, he becomes quite unaware of his surroundings, not noticing Yuya despite the latter talking throughout his Duel with Yuto, though he was able to recall him later after stopping and thinking about the event. This extends to his Dueling to the point that it can affect his performance, though as Yugo himself has noted when he is able to Duel seriously he does so with great skill. Yugo believes that a by-the-books strategy is the wrong way to go while Dueling and that the flow of a Duel can change any minute, to the point where he is willing to trust in and believe in luck if he needs to.
Yugo harbors feelings for his childhood friend, [], getting embarrassed and blushed when Zuzu thought Rin was his girlfriend. In the dub, he sometimes refers to Rin as 'RinRin'. He occasionally continues to mistake Zuzu for Rin, such as when he signed her up for the [Cup|Friendship Cup], and when he saw Zuzu wearing Rin's clothes. This confusion extends to another of Rin's counterparts, [].
Despite his short temper and rudeness, Yugo is a kind person at heart, especially towards Rin and Zuzu.
While Dueling, he shows a tendency to remain on his [Runner|Duel Runner] even if the Duel is not a Turbo Duel.
Yugo speaks in a rough and somewhat vulgar manner comparable to that of a delinquent, especially when he is angry (often referring to others as "Temē" and often using the curse, "Chikusho!", which are rude forms of "You" and "Damn" in Japanese). In the dub, Yugo's voice is somewhat similar to Yuya's but is deeper. He uses the personal pronoun "ore".
Yugo is able to travel through different dimensions with the power of "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]", though he has no control over when or where he travels to. Yugo believed that "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" felt his desire to save [] but later realized that "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" guided him to where [] and later [] were. Like his dimensional counterparts, Yugo can be []. Unlike Yuto and Yuya who appear unable to remember what happened when entering the state, Yugo appears to able to retain a glimpse of his memory while awakened as shown when he was able to remember Yuya who was protecting Yuto at the time. He is a highly skilled [Runner|Duel Runner] driver, he frequently does highly acrobatic maneuvers when Dueling and can do long jumps when riding outside Duels.
Yugo displays on occasion the strange ability to [(ability)|Synchronize] with his dimensional counterparts when he is Dueling. In this state, Yugo and his counterparts' personalities are mixed together, causing both parties to adopt some mannerisms of the other, including speaking the same words and moving in the same manner. The first instance of this happened with Yuya, where Yugo copies Yuya's catchphrase and grabbed an [Card|Action Card] in the same way Yuya would. When the Duel ends, both Yugo and his counterpart snap out of it and appear to be unaware of what transpired in that brief period of time. He later displayed the ability to synchronize with two, and even all of his counterparts on the same occasion.
Like his dimensional counterparts, Yugo possesses an [Darkness|unknown darkness] inside him. However so far, Yugo's darkness has only appeared when he is in a synchronized awakening with his counterparts.
His name is a pun in Japanese, as 「ユーゴ」 (Yūgo) sounds very similar to 「融合」 (Yūgō: literally translates as "Fusion"). Because of this, Yugo is always offended whenever anyone calls him "Fusion" or even pronounces the word, and constantly believed that [] kept getting his name wrong whenever he referred to him as "Pawn of Fusion". In the dub, as the pun in his Japanese name doesn't translate, he is instead referred to derisively by variations of his own name (such as "No-Go" or "Slow-Go"). This pun is also reflected by his Deck's [], "[]", which is a sub-archetype of the "[]" archetype: A [Summon|Fusion Summon]-oriented archetype.
His English spelling in the Japanese version, Hugo, means "bright in mind and spirit" or simply "intelligent".For this character, his name is spelled in Katakana, so it has no actual Japanese meanings.
HistoryWhen Yugo was growing up, he and [] were raised as orphans and lived in the slums of [Domino City (ARC-V)|New Domino City] as [(ARC-V)|Commons], where they Dueled together as children. Since then, they decided to compete in the [Cup|Friendship Cup] and challenge the Duel King [Atlas (ARC-V)|Jack Atlas] to a [Duel|Turbo Duel]. They built a [Runner|Duel Runner] together in order to achieve their goal.
A few years later however, Rin found herself being targeted by an agent of [Academy (ARC-V)|Duel Academy], [], with Yugo desperately looking for her. By the time he found Rin, Yuri had already captured her, and Yugo was shocked to see that Yuri had the same face that he had. Yuri proceeded to activate "[Flash|Violet Flash]" and escape. Once they disappeared, Yugo's "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]" shined and transported him to a destroyed [City (ARC-V)|Heartland City], where he encountered []. Mistaking Yuto for Yuri, he []ed against Yuto. Yuto brought out "[Rebellion Xyz Dragon (anime)|Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon]", while Yugo []ed "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" in response, but fled when [Obsidian|Shay] and several [Resistance|other Duelists] arrived.
Arc League ChampionshipYugo arrived in the [Dimension|Standard Dimension], crashing into a streetlight with his [Runner|Duel Runner] and complaining about it. Recognizing [], he quickly challenged him to a Duel, having been waiting to defeat him for a while, completely ignoring the presence of [Sakaki|Yuya Sakaki], a third person who resembled him. Yuto called him a Pawn of Fusion ("no-go" in the dub), much to Yugo's annoyance, protesting that his name was Yugo. Dueling atop his [Runner|Duel Runner], he traded blows evenly with Yuto, claiming that he would take back what was precious that Yuto had stolen from him. He brought out "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]", which had guided him both to Heartland and the [Dimension|Standard Dimension], and deliberately left the required monsters for Yuto's "[Rebellion Xyz Dragon (anime)|Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon]" on the [] so that it could be Summoned next turn. Once both dragons were on their field, they eyes of their respective Duelists glowed, as if []. Despite the clear advantage the effect of "Clear Wing" had over "Dark Rebellion", Yuto was able to gain the upper hand. Yuya managed to stop Yuto from attacking further, but couldn't snap Yugo out of it. Yugo used the effect of "Clear Wing" to win the Duel the next turn, and was then released from his possession, unaware of what had happened. Yugo was [bracelet|transported] away by a bright light afterwards.Yugo later appeared in the Arctic Zone, having been transported by "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" during the [League Championship|Arc League Championship] Junior Youth [Royal|Battle Royal]. Seeing the frozen landscape, he wondered if he had traveled into the future, to a time when humanity was extinct. He then spotted [Warrior Academy|Bandit Warrior Academy] Duelists [] and [(ARC-V)|Taka], who mistook Yugo for Yuya, and they challenged him to a Duel. This angered him, and he defeated them both in their Duel before attempting to question them further. Unfortunately, both Nagi and Taka lost consciousness after the Duel, prompting Yugo to look for someone else.Yugo went to the Volcano Zone and was confused by the dimension's "unusual landscape", still unaware that it was [Vision|Solid Vision]. There he noticed the [Force|Obelisk Force] wiping out the Senior Team until only [Ravenwood|Kev Ravenwood] was left. He quickly identified the Obelisk Force as the ones who attacked the [Dimension|Xyz Dimension]. Angered, he barged into the Duel (strangely not taking the intrusion penalty) and saved Kev just before he was defeated as well. The Obelisk Force asked him who he was. Yugo introduced himself, and the Obelisk Force thought he was an ally and his name was "Fusion" (in the dub, the Force asked "Yugo? Yugo where?"). Out of annoyance that his name was mistaken yet again, he easily defeated the Obelisk Force by turning their "[Armageddon Gear|Ancient Armageddon Gear]" against them. (in the dub, his name was not mistaken for another, but thanks to the "You-Go" sounding of his name, he insisted that his name was "Yugo"). He asked Kev if he was okay, but he became irritated when Kev fled in fear without thanking him. He returned to the Iceberg Zone, where he found [Boyle|Zuzu] after mistaking her for []. He hugged her and called Rin's name out in joy, while Zuzu noticed the similarity of Yugo with Yuya. Remembering that [] mentioned Rin's name, Zuzu asked Yugo if he knew who Rin was, confusing Yugo. Yuya's arrival in the vicinity activated Zuzu's bracelet, teleporting Yugo and Zuzu away.
Friendship CupZuzu's bracelet transported her and Yugo back to the [Dimension|Synchro Dimension], Yugo's homeland. Concerned for Zuzu's safety, he tried to wake her up, and was unprepared for her startled response to him being close to her, resulting in Zuzu pushing Yugo into his [Runner|Duel Runner]. After checking up on his Duel Runner, he warned Zuzu to be careful around it, and when prompted, explained that they were in [Domino City (ARC-V)|New Domino City], his hometown. He was pleased when Zuzu got his name right and then angered when she asked if he was allied with the [Dimension|Fusion Dimension], realizing that she wasn't Rin, since Rin wouldn't have gotten his name wrong. Zuzu mentioned [Duelist] who had kidnapped Rin, much to Yugo's interest. He asked where the Duelist was now, but Zuzu admitted that she didn't know and explained that he'd vanished when Yugo showed up.Yugo explained to Zuzu that she was in the Synchro Dimension, and reassured her that he'd been surprised the first time he'd crossed dimensions as well, which had been after Rin was kidnapped, upon which he'd found himself in the [Dimension|Xyz Dimension]'s Heartland City. Zuzu informed Yugo that Yuto hadn't been the person that had kidnapped Rin, and that he was in fact trying to find [Obsidian|someone] precious to him as well, like Rin was to Yugo. Yugo was quite surprised, and he denied, blushing, that Rin was his girlfriend when Zuzu asked him about it. Yugo explained to Zuzu that "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]" had transported him across dimensions, and they realized that the Duelist that had kidnapped Rin must have been nearby the first time he Dueled Yuto. Zuzu explained about her and Yugo's dimensional counterparts, suggesting that those with the same face may be drawn to one another, and Yugo remembered in shock that [Sakaki|the Duelist] that had been with Yuto had had the same face as him. Zuzu explained about the [Dimensions|Four Dimensions], as well as the goals of [Academy (ARC-V)|Duel Academy] and [Akaba|the Professor]. Pleased that he knew where Rin was, Yugo suggested that they storm Duel Academy using Zuzu's bracelet, but Zuzu explained that it only worked when Yuya was around and broke down in tears. Yugo apologized, handed Zuzu a handkerchief and admitted that he couldn't control "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" either, and that he needed Rin to keep him in line.They were interrupted when the [] finally noticed them, and they fled on Yugo's Runner. Yugo explained the competitive society of the City to Zuzu, as well as the history of the Duel King, [Atlas (ARC-V)|Jack Atlas], whom he and Rin had idolized and built their Duel Runner for the purpose of Turbo Dueling. [227|Officer 227] arrived, and Yugo attempted to outpace him, explaining that their trespass would mean being sent to the [(ARC-V)|Facility] if they were caught. The Duel Chaser forced a Turbo Duel, and Yugo asked for Zuzu's name, since he hadn't before. Telling her to hold on tight, he began the Turbo Duel. Yugo took the first turn and quickly Summoned his "[Kendama (anime)|Hi-Speedroid Kendama]" to deal 500 [damage|damage] to his opponent. Zuzu quickly complained that it'd be dangerous to Duel while driving. [Trail|Melissa Trail] soon appeared to broadcast the Turbo Duel, prompting Yugo to ask 227 to not keep the audience waiting. 227 used his "[]" [Monster|Synchro Monster]s to steal Yugo's monsters, much to his annoyance. When Yugo was seemingly about be defeated by his own "[Chanbara (anime)|Hi-Speedroid Chanbara]", he countered with "[Roll Battle (anime)|Dice Roll Battle]" to bring out "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" and force 227's monsters to attack it. Yugo also used the effect of "Chanbara" to activate the effect of "Clear Wing" and defeat 227. [Security (ARC-V)|Sector Security] had prepared a barricade to stop Yugo, but he effortlessly jumped over it and escaped. Yugo and Zuzu were branded as wanted fugitives in New Domino City afterwards.The next day, Yugo and Zuzu attempted to warn New Domino City about the [Domination|Interdimensional Domination] but no one believed them, prompting Yugo to prove their claims by attempting to travel dimensions with "Clear Wing" only to fail embarrassingly. For a few days the duo posted some flyers about the upcoming War between dimensions, which seemingly didn't work either. Yugo signed up himself and Zuzu for the [Cup|Friendship Cup] without telling the latter, when he did he accidentally listed Zuzu as "Rin" but then corrected himself. Later he offered Zuzu to stay at Rin's room and commented that she'd stink if she kept wearing the same clothes for a while (in the Dub, this is replaced by a more suggestive comment with Yugo jokingly said that "her clothes will walk away on their own"), earning him a smack in the face from Zuzu's paper fan. When he saw Zuzu wearing Rin's clothes, he once again mistook her for Rin, and explained that the Friendship Cup would be a good chance to earn credibility about the war between dimensions.Yugo rode recklessly with Zuzu to the [Palace|Duel Palace] where the Friendship Cup would be taking place, annoyed that they were missing the opening and reassuring Zuzu that the [Chasers|Duel Chasers] wouldn't arrest participants in the Cup. He arrived eagerly in time for Jack Atlas's exhibition match, and to both his and Zuzu's surprise, they learned that Yuya Sakaki was Jack's opponent, confirmed when Zuzu's braclet reacted to the presence of Yuya and Yugo and when Yuya performed a [Summon|Pendulum Summon], which Yugo witnessed for the first time. Yugo was excited for the Duel, but sensitive enough to feel sorry for Yuya, who would likely be utterly defeated by Jack in a deliberate show of power. True to Yugo's word, Yuya was indeed defeated. Zuzu ran down to Yuya in worry with Yugo following her. Sector Security officers attempted to arrest them, but they were saved by servants of the [Council|High Council] and taken to their quarters for the tournament. Yugo was appreciative of the luxury of the quarters, failing to notice his "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" reacting to the presence of the nearby "[Pendulum Dragon (anime)|Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon]" and "Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon". He was worried about Zuzu during her Duel with [Tokumatsu|Chojiro Tokumatsu] given her inexperience on a Duel Runner, and relieved when she won, though he noted that Zuzu hadn't talked about the dimensional war. Yugo was disappointed that he didn't get to Duel on the first day, but he was appreciative of the dinner given to him by the High Council.He was surprised when Yuya revealed the fate of the losers in the Friendship Cup the next day: being sent to the [Labor Facility|Underground Labor Facility]. Yugo was finally up to Duel the next day, facing [Sawatari|Sylvio Sawatari], vowing to talk about the dimensional war. Both Duelists told the other not to hold back, and Sylvio accidentally managed to pass Yugo for the first turn, opening up with a Pendulum Summon. Yugo commented that Sylvio wasn't all talk, and he brought out "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" on his first turn, and then backed it up with [Trap Card|Continuous Trap Card]s to protect it in combination with its effect. Sylvio managed to bypass these restrictions by using his low-Level "[Actor|Abyss Actor]" monsters and protecting them from the effect of "Clear Wing", before eventually lowering the ATK of "Clear Wing" to 0. During the Duel, Yugo's mind [(ability)|synched] with Yuya's, with both of them making Yugo's moves, and Yugo using some of Yuya's mannerisms. Knowing that he needed to draw a specific card, Yugo (and by extension Yuya) drew "[Double Yoyo (anime)|Speedroid Double Yoyo]" to revive the [Monster|Tuner Monster] "[Red-Eyed Dice (anime)|Speedroid Red-Eyed Dice]" to bring out "[Hagoita (anime)|Hi-Speedroid Hagoita]". He used its Level-modification effects to allow "Clear Wing" to destroy all of Sylvio's monsters and attack directly for the win. The experience caused Yugo to forget his promise to talk about the war. Sylvio came over to tell him to answer to the crowd's cheers, and then finally realized that Yugo resembled Yuya. Before they could talk further, the staff came over and removed Sylvio from the arena. Yugo later grimly watched the brutal Duel between [Obsidian|Shay Obsidian] and [McField|Dennis McField].
Friendship Cup FinalsYugo eagerly watched the Duel between Zuzu and [Volkov|Sergey Volkov]. Although he was proud of Zuzu, he was apprehensive, knowing that Sergey must have had a strategy planned. He was proven right when Sergey turned the tables and violently defeated Zuzu, with the impact throwing her body into a building. With Zuzu's fate unknown to him, Yugo was reduced to tears, and he vowed to carry on her feelings.Prior to his Duel with [], he vowed to win the Duel for both Rin and Zuzu. When he saw Celina in person for the first time, he mistook her for Rin and attempted to hug her multiple times, each ending with Celina punching or kicking him. He then started off the Duel with a rocky start, with him Summoning only "[Den-Den Daiko Duke (anime)|Speedroid Den-Den Daiko Duke]". After getting attacked by Celina's "[Cat Dancer (anime)|Lunalight Cat Dancer]", Yugo managed to regain his focus and gave his all in the Duel. He remembered Rin's advice and recounted to Celina what Rin often told him. During the Duel, he debated with Celina over the value of an adaptive strategy rather than a planned one. The course began changing when Celina was in a pinch, forcing Yugo to use the manual setting of his Duel Runner to prevent himself from crashing. After Celina Summoned "[Panther Dancer (anime)|Lunalight Panther Dancer]", Yugo was forced to try his luck in Synchro Summoning "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]" with "[(anime)|Re-dyce-cle]" and he succeeded. After Summoning his dragon, Yugo [(ability)|synchronized] with Yuya again and yelled the latter's catchphrase.After Yugo defeated Celina, he noticed [] and recognized him as the one who kidnapped Rin. When Yuri left, Yugo started to chase him but escaped after jumping off the truck onto a passing boat. While he was searching for Yuri, Yugo felt his chest burning and "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" began to glow, which caused Yugo and all of his [counterparts|counterparts] to [] and synchronize with Yuya during his Duel against [Hogan (ARC-V)|Crow Hogan]. While he was in sync with his counterparts, Yugo began to exhibit a [Darkness|dark aura] around his body and he passed out after Yuya won the Duel.Yugo found Yuri on the rooftop and was infuriated when Yuri pronounced his name wrong. Yugo demanded Rin's location, and Yuri in turn asked about Zuzu's whereabouts. Tearfully remembering Zuzu's fate, Yugo replied that Zuzu was in his heart. Annoyed at this, Yuri replied that Rin was there too and activated "[Flash|Violet Flash]" to flee from Yugo again. Yugo found Yuri again in an abandoned subway and challenged him to a Duel, but Yuri refused, claiming that he was busy. Yuri's comments alerted Yugo to Celina's presence, surprising Yugo as he had believed Celina to be sent underground after her loss to him. Upon learning that Celina had lost to Yugo, Yuri accepted Yugo's challenge. Yugo began by Synchro Summoning "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon", and Yuri summoned "[Venom Fusion Dragon (anime)|Starving Venom Fusion Dragon]" in response, and with all of the [Dimension Dragons|Four Dimension Dragons] present on the field, they both ended up awakening and synchronizing again with Yuya and Yuto. While synced, Yugo and his counterparts began shouting that they had waited for this time to revive and become one. Zuzu arrived looking for Yuya, and her bracelet teleported Yugo and Yuri away, leaving their Duel unfinished. Owing to his absence, [Roget|Jean-Michel Roget] declared him disqualified and his spot in the [Cup|Friendship Cup] was taken by [Atlas (ARC-V)|Jack Atlas].
Heartland CityYugo was transported to the [Dimension|Fusion Dimension] and he continued his search for []. He found him at the docks of a [(Fusion Dimension)|City], but his arrival activated the power of [bracelet|Zuzu's bracelet], transporting Yuri away. When Yugo noticed [Boyle|Zuzu] he was delighted and tearfully attempted to hug her, but instead earned a smack from her paper fan. Yugo expressed his relief that she was alive as he thought that she had died in her Duel against [Volkov|Sergey]. Yugo informed Zuzu that [Academy (ARC-V)|Duel Academy] was located near the city, and thus [] was also present, and Zuzu added that [Obsidian|Lulu] and [] were also at Duel Academy, explaining that Celina had been recaptured in the [Dimension|Synchro Dimension].Yugo went with Zuzu and Alexis to [Show Duel School (Fusion Dimension)|You Show Duel School], where they convinced [Sakaki|Yusho Sakaki] to battle Duel Academy. [McField|Dennis McField] arrived with squad of Duel Academy soldiers to capture Zuzu; Yugo recognized Dennis from his Duel with [Obsidian|Shay Obsidian] and was prepared to Duel him when Dennis challenged Yusho. Yusho distracted Dennis during their Duel, allowing everyone to escape. Yugo and Zuzu fled on Yugo's [Runner|Duel Runner], but they were quickly cornered. Zuzu dismounted to Duel and Yugo vowed to protect her, but Zuzu's bracelet activated and teleported him away.Yugo found himself teleported into a classroom and he yelled at the teacher that his name was not []. Breaking out and speeding off while wondering where he was, he eventually arrived at the harbor and hid behind a shipping container. Yusho and Alexis arrived with [Tenjo (ARC-V)|Kite Tenjo], and when Kite was about to run off, Yugo called out to him. However, Kite was a member of [Resistance|the Resistance] and mistook Yugo as a Fusion follower, and he pinned Yugo to the ground. Yugo angrily protested that his name was Yugo, not Fusion, and Kite released him and told him to hurry before running off. Alexis asked Yugo how he arrived before they did, and he explained that Zuzu's bracelet teleported him. Alexis explained that he was at Duel Academy and that Rin was in the Eastern tower. Yugo immediately sped off to the top of the tower where [] was guarding the entrance, who challenged him to a Duel. Apollo [Summon|Fusion Summon]ed "[Protector|Sun Protector]" and used its effect and his [Shield Token|Protector's Shield Token]s to weaken Yugo and "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]", but this allowed Yugo to use "[OMK Gum (anime)|Speedroid OMK Gum]" to [Summon|Synchro Summon] "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon]" and power it up through a draw of chance. He defeated Apollo, and broke down the door to Rin's room. Reunited with Rin at last, Yugo ran to hug her only to be kneed in the gut for being late to rescue her. Rin tearfully hugged him, and Yugo reassured her that it was all rightAs Yugo talked about his participation in the Friendship Cup with Rin, Rin cut him off and challenged him to a Duel, throwing him off the tower. Yugo landed on his Duel Runner, much to his horror and he checked to see if it was damaged. Rin approached him with a Duel Academy [Disk|Duel Disk] and she told him to ignore it. Yugo was shocked at Rin disregarding the feelings that she and Yugo had put into the Runner, and he eventually agreed to Duel her. Rin's first turn was as ruthless as Yugo remembered; Yugo took 1500 effect damage from Rin's "[]" monsters. He followed Rin down the steps on his Runner and wondered if Duel Academy did something to her. He brought out "Clear Wing Synchro Dragon" and asked her if she remembered it only for her to use "[Wind (anime)|Bewildering Wind]" to negate its effects and halve its ATK. Seeing this, Yugo decided to make Rin remember since she was not the same person he knew anymore. Rin [Summon|Special Summon]ed "[Fusioner (anime)|Parasite Fusioner]", and Yugo wondered why she had that monster and was shocked when she Fusion Summoned "[- Crystal Bell (anime)|Windwitch - Crystal Bell]". The attack of "Crystal Bell" destroyed both "Clear Wing" and Yugo's Duel Runner, much to his utter horror. Rin ordered him to stand up as their Duel was still going on, and Yugo became furious and screamed at Rin for forgetting their dream. He begged her to remember, but Rin told Yugo to surrender as his LP was close to 0 and his Duel Runner had been destroyed. Yugo refused as he had finally found her after traveling through dimensions. He picked up the [Disk|Duel Disk] from his destroyed Duel Runner and equipped it to his arm, declaring that he would bring Rin back to normal. He Synchro Summoned "Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon" and destroyed "Crystal Bell", blasting Rin away. Yugo ran to her and held her in his arms. Much to his joy, Rin apparently regained her senses and called out to him. However, Rin activated the effect of "Crystal Bell" to bring back "Winter Bell" and "Parasite Fusioner" and Fusion Summoned a second "Crystal Bell". Noting a dark aura surrounding both Rin and "Parasite Fusioner", Yugo wondered if "Parasite Fusioner" was the reason why Rin acted like this. Rin defeated Yugo with the effect of "Crystal Bell" and left him lying unconscious outside the tower. [Phoenix (ARC-V)|Aster Phoenix] found Yugo as he woke up, and he explained to Yugo that Rin and [Obsidian|Lulu] were both being controlled and that they would have to defeat [Doktor|the person] controlling them. Yugo mentioned to Aster that [Monster|a bug] was controlling Rin, causing Aster to remember something. Yugo and Aster headed into Duel Academy, running through the hallways.
Yugo and [Phoenix (ARC-V)|Aster] found [] preparing to seal [Perse|Sora Perse] into a card. Yugo confronted Yuri and told Aster to go find Rin while he defeated Yuri. Infuriated when Yuri pronounced his name wrong again, Yugo quickly brought out "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]". He entered a [(ability)|synchronized] [] with his counterparts when Yuri brought out "[Venom Fusion Dragon (anime)|Starving Venom Fusion Dragon]" and they started shouting that they would become one again. Elsewhere, [Sakaki|Yuya] brought out "[Pendulum Dragon (anime)|Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon]" and "[Rebellion Xyz Dragon (anime)|Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon]", causing "Clear Wing" to resonate with them and "Starving Venom" while he and Yuri continued shouting that they would become one.Yugo negated the attack of "Starving Venom" with "[Sonic|Burning Sonic]" and raised the ATK of "Clear Wing". Aster returned with [Tenjo (ARC-V)|Kite] and the awakened Yugo warned Aster and Kite not to get in his way, but they joined the Duel. Although Yugo was able to inflict damage, Kite countered all of his moves and took control of his and Yuri's dragons with the effect of "[Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon (anime)|Neo Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon]". Yugo was able to use the effect of "[Glasskull (anime)|Speedroid Glasskull]" to defend himself. Aster and Yugo traded blows through card effects after Aster [Summon|Fusion Summon]ed "[HERO - Dystopia (anime)|Destiny HERO - Dystopia]", and Aster reminded Yugo that Dueling was for bringing smiles and urged him to remember Rin, causing Yugo to start showing signs of breaking free from his awakening. Yugo brought out "[Fiendmagnet (anime)|Speedroid Fiendmagnet]" and used the effect of "Fiendmagnet" to take back "Clear Wing" to Synchro Summon "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon]". Yugo proceeded to attack "Dystopia" with "Crystal Wing", with the two monsters' effects clashing until Kite's "[Guard|Split Guard]" protected "Dystopia". Aster explained to Yugo that he and Yuya were [person] before and should have the same spirit for desiring Duels with smiles, but Yugo protested that the statement made no sense. He continued his attack, but Aster used the effect of "[HERO - Dreamguy|Destiny HERO - Dreamguy]" from the [] to protect "Dystopia" and Special Summon itself. While the effect allowed "Crystal Wing" to attack again, Aster fused his two monsters into "[HERO - Duskutopiaguy|Destiny HERO - Duskutopiaguy]", defending himself from "Crystal Wing". Yugo looked at the shining form of "Duskutopiaguy" and he fell to his knees. Breaking out of his awakening, he snapped at Aster that his name was Yugo. Yugo admitted that that had been dangerous as he had come close to forgetting himself, and he warned Yuri that he would defeat him for taking Rin. To his surprise, Yuri used "[Polymerization (later anime)|Super Polymerization]" to Fusion Summon "[Venom Fusion Dragon (anime)|Greedy Venom Fusion Dragon]". When Yuri used the effect of "Greedy Venom" on "Duskutopiaguy", Yugo used the effect of "Crystal Wing" to negate the effect of "Greedy Venom" and destroy it. However, Yuri used the second effect of "Greedy Venom" to destroy every monster on the field and inflict damage equal to their original ATK. Aster used the effect of "Duskutopiaguy" to prevent the destruction of "Crystal Wing", but he and Kite were defeated. Yugo called out to Aster, who told him to win, and Yugo told Yusho, who had arrived not long ago, that Kite and Aster didn't waste anything while vowing to Yuri once more that he would defeat him.As the effect of "Crystal Wing" wore off, Yugo attacked "Greedy Venom", using the effect of "Crystal Wing" again. Yuri reminded him of the effects of "Greedy Venom", which destroyed "Crystal Wing" and inflicted its ATK as damage and let Yuri Special Summon "Greedy Venom" again by banishing another of its Fusion Materials. Yugo told Yuri that Aster and Kite taught him that victory didn't come without pain. Yugo used "[Shave Reborn|Extra Shave Reborn]" to bring back "Clear Wing", then Special Summoned "[5-6-Plane (anime)|Speedroid 5-6-Plane]" and used its effect to weaken "Greedy Venom". However, he then used the effect of "Clear Wing" to negate the effect of "5-6-Plane", destroy it, and strengthen "Clear Wing". "Clear Wing" destroyed "Greedy Venom", but Yuri used the effect of "[Drosophyllum Hydra (anime)|Predaplant Drosophyllum Hydra]" in his Graveyard to banish "[Flytrap (anime)|Predaplant Flytrap]" and return "Starving Venom" to the Graveyard to halve the damage. He was surprised when Yuri used "Extra Shave Reborn" and the effect of "Starving Venom" to negate the effect of "Clear Wing" and steal it. Yugo was defeated by Yuri, who used the stolen effect of "Clear Wing" against him.
Yuri complimented his Dueling, and Yugo asked him who he thought he was. To his surprise, Yuri apologized to him for dismissing him and his "Clear Wing" as it resonated with "Starving Venom". Yugo awakened and he declared that they would become one before being absorbed by Yuri. During Yuri and Yuya's Duel, Yugo's spirit awakened again when the Four Dimension Dragons resonated with each other. Yugo continued to declare that they would become one as Yuri urged Yuya to surrender and become with them. When Yuya [Trap Mimic|took control] of "Clear Wing", Yugo appeared next to him to help him defeat Yuri. He was then absorbed by Yuya to [Sorcerer (anime)|fuse] back into the [King Dragon Zarc (character)|Supreme King Dragon Zarc].
Rin[] is Yugo's childhood friend and met when they were raised in a facility together and became best friends. They built Yugo's [Runner|Duel Runner] together. He blushed and stammered after [Boyle|Zuzu] made the assumption that she was his girlfriend.
Whenever Yugo finds one of Rin's counterparts he immediately attempts to hug them happily thinking they're Rin, often to their annoyance.
[Boyle|Zuzu] was saved from [] by Yugo after he mistook her for []. Yugo and Zuzu developed a quick friendship during their time in the [Dimension|Synchro Dimension]. Yugo attempted to help out Zuzu with the issue of the [Domination|dimensional war], such as trying to warn the citizens about the [Dimension|Fusion Dimension] and getting annoyed when others laughed at her. He also signed her up for the [Cup|Friendship Cup], believing it would be a good idea to convince others about the threat.
Zuzu has been frequently annoyed by Yugo, due to him mistaking her for Rin, causing her to use her fan to hit him, or threatening to do so.
Like Yuya, Yugo also cares about Zuzu as his friend. After witnessing Zuzu brutally losing to [Volkov|Sergey Volkov] and watching her crash into a building, Yugo started to cry but said that he would carry on her feelings. He is seen crying again when he discusses it with Yuri. When he found her in the Fusion Dimension he tearfully attempted to hug her, relieved that she was alive.
Yugo and Yuto's relationship was a hate-filled rivalry based on misunderstanding. When Yugo and Yuto first met, Yugo assumed he was [], who had just kidnapped []. Because of this, and [] getting his name wrong, Yugo and Yuto engaged in a Duel that was cut off. Yugo demonstrated an intense rivalry with Yuto for his perceived crimes, though he was not above complimenting him. Later, [Boyle|Zuzu] rectified the mistake by explaining about [Obsidian|Lulu] and Yuri to Yugo, much to Yugo's horror.
After learning about [] and that he was []'s true kidnapper, Yugo transferred his hate of [] to Yuri. Yuri is also one of the reasons why Yugo went after Yuto due to them looking alike. When Yuri returned to the [Dimension|Synchro Dimension], Yugo went to chase him after noticing him above the [Palace|Duel Palace], and after they were both transported to the [Dimension|Fusion Dimension] he continued his search for him.
Yugo and [Sawatari|Sylvio Sawatari] were opponents in the [Cup|Friendship Cup]. They were friendly to one another and they complimented each other's Dueling skills. They left on friendly terms when Sylvio encouraged Yugo to answer the cheers of the crowd after their fiery Duel.
Upon meeting [] for the first time, Yugo mistook her for Rin and constantly tried to hug her, despite her constant rejection. His confusion actually affected his performance initially in their Duel, but he soon got himself on track. Yugo finds Celina's by-the-books strategies to be the wrong way to Duel, explaining to her the justification of his perspective on Dueling.
[[File:Yugo and Clear Wing.png|thumb|Yugo and "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]Yugo uses a "[]" Deck, focused on [Summon|Synchro Summon] tactics. He primarily uses cards such as "[Double Yoyo (anime)|Speedroid Double Yoyo]" and "[Terrortop (anime)|Speedroid Terrortop]" to [] the [] for multiple Synchro Summons. He also includes several cards that allow him to Synchro Summon using [Material|materials] in the [], as well as cards that [] "Speedroids" from his Graveyard for various beneficial [effect|effects]. By his own admission, Yugo is more willing to trust in his luck and expect the flow of a Duel to change than have a set plan at the start.
After Summoning his signature "[Wing Synchro Dragon (anime)|Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]", he focuses on using it in [] strategies with cards like "[Bind (anime)|Dragon's Bind]" and "[Wing (anime)|Follow Wing]". He also attempts to activate the effect of "Clear Wing" as many times as possible, even by targeting it with his own monster effects or giving the opponent's monsters an effect and then forcing them to activate it.
