Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki

Alexis Rhodes, known as Asuka Tenjoin in the Japanese version, is a strong female Duelist from the Obelisk Blue dormitory at Duel Academy as well as one of Jaden Yuki's closest friends. She usually serves as the only female protagonist in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, though Blair Flannigan begins having a slight role as well near the end of the series.

An alternate universe version of Alexis appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V.[6][7]



Asuka Linework

Alexis's design incorporates multiple layers of clothing and a wide range of expressions. Depicted here is the Duelist in full Obelisk Blue regalia from front, side, and rear alongside views of her head from different angles.


Full-body shot of Alexis

Alexis' character design was overseen by Kenichi Hara. Her usual outfit consists of the standard sleeveless female Obelisk Blue uniform which consists of: a blue skirt combined with a belt colored in a light blue hue, white socks, blue boots, a sleeveless jacket made of white colored fabric with some blue marks around the collar and on the front side in chest level. Her attire also features an optional pair of fingerless gloves which reach from wrists up to her elbows.

Her long, dark blond hair is sporadically arranged, with a large portion trailing the upper part of the nape of her neck. She has hazel eyes. She carries an Academia Disk on her left arm. During her senior year, she carries a Duel Disk with blue trim representing the Obelisk Blue dorm on her left arm.


Alexis is generally very confident, sweet, caring, brave and strong willed, yet she does not follow the crowd nor does she regard herself as better than other people like many of her Obelisk peers, though she does show some respect for them, (like during her duel with Chazz).

Alexis is known well for her beauty, and many male characters throughout the show demonstrate infatuation with her. Because she is the most beautiful girl in Duel Academy while also a great duelist, she has earned the names "Madonna" and "Queen of Obelisk Blue". However, she is kind, humble and not prideful, and does not intentionally use her looks to her advantage, which most likely attracts the male students to her even more. Syrus Truesdale, Chazz, Pierre the Gambler, Harrington Rosewood, and Bob Banter have all gotten in duels and dilemmas for her affections. However, she has stated often that she does not want a boyfriend, and therefore has never gone through with anyone's interest in her.

Ironically, as the series progressed she actually developed a crush on Jaden Yuki, whom was one of the few males not to show infatuation with her. Her crush on him progressively became more obvious and stronger though she never had the courage to tell him. She finally wanted to confess her feelings to him at the end of episode 162, but decides not to and instead just says she was glad to have met him. She also displayed attraction towards Aster, as she tried to get close to him in his duel with Jaden by using the excuse of getting Mindy and Jasmine to stop cheering for him, and was visibly embarrassed when her ploy was quickly realized.

Alexis has put herself in danger to help her friends many times. She has strong confidence in her Dueling skills, but she does not act vain about it, unlike Chazz, Aster, and sometimes Jaden. Alexis also tends to act more quiet and reserved than Jaden's other friends. She tries to stay alongside Jaden and support him in defeating evil throughout the series, but often finds herself in trouble and needing his rescuing.

After Alexis lost her Duel to Chazz and was brainwashed into joining the Society of Light, her personality changed dramatically. She became extremely rude, arrogant and insulting towards Jaden and the others, and began making more sarcastic comments. She also began to call Jaden a "dork" and "loser" and saying he should "get a new line", and called Syrus and Hassleberry "dweebs". She talks back to her peers more frequently as well. This all ended when Jaden defeated her and undid her brainwashing, making her angry when Jaden jokingly mocked her brainwashing status, which implied she is a "hot-head."


Her and her brother's surname has been written as "Tenjouin", "Tenjōin", and "Tenjyoin" in Roman characters. Her given name in the Japanese version means "tomorrow's fragrance", and she is called "Tomorrow Girl" by Jim Crocodile Cook. Her English name means "helper" or "defender".




Alexis in her childhood

When she was young, she used to duel her brother but normally lost. "Swing of Memories" was used to represent her relationship with her brother. As she grew up, she met Pierre the Gambler. She and the class treated him like family, though he showed his true colors, as he loved gambling. Tired of this, she taught him how to play Duel Monsters and beat him. Being in love with her, he stole her mother's scarf, and used Duel Monsters to gamble as well. Shortly afterwards, Alexis and Atticus Rhodes attended Duel Academy together. Shortly after he disappeared, she tried doing anything she could to find him, but had no luck, resulting in her keeping Atticus' disappearance a secret for a while.

Alexis Rhodes, along with Zane Truesdale and Chazz Princeton, became one of the top students at the Academy. She is regarded as the "Madonna" and "Queen of Obelisk Blue", yet she does not follow the crowd nor does she regard herself as better than other people like many of her Obelisk peers, though she does show some respect for them (like during her duel with Chazz).

Seven Stars[]

Alexis meets Jaden for the first time

Alexis meets Jaden

Alexis and Zane first see Jaden beat Dr. Crowler at the entrance exams and are intrigued by his skills. She first meets Jaden when defusing a heated moment between him and Chazz in which advises Jaden not to bother with him. She later watches Jaden's midnight Duel against Chazz in the Obelisk Blue dormitory in which she becomes impressed with his moves. Security arrives just as the Duel is about to end, forcing them to stop the Duel and leave. Alexis talks to Jaden afterwards saying she believed it could have gone either way, but Jaden reveals his next draw as "Monster Reborn" which would have let him win. Alexis is shocked and becomes interested in knowing more about Jaden's Dueling skills.

In attempt to get Jaden expelled, Dr. Crowler plants a fake love note in Jaden's locker from Alexis to meet her at the Obelisk Blue female dorm, which is illegal for males to enter. Syrus Truesdale stumbles upon the note instead and heads to the female dorm hoping to become an item with Alexis believing she loved him, but is discovered by Alexis and her friends. Alexis and her friends correct Syrus that the letter was sent to Jaden, even though it was a fake letter in the first place. Alexis decides to use the situation to test Jaden's Dueling skills by holding Syrus captive unless he agreed to Duel her. She also threatens to expel both of them for crossing into the female dorm if they lost. She puts up a good fight, but in the end Jaden wins but Alexis reveals in her thoughts that she never would have had them expelled anyways if she did win, because she felt the school year would be much more interesting with them, much to Jasmine's dismay. When she takes her test, she wonders if Jaden will really pass due to the fact that he was late. Later as Jaden duels Chazz as part of his field test, she gets concerned when Chazz pulls out his rare cards. But when Jaden wins her faith in his skills grows more.

When Jaden, Syrus and Chumley Huffington go to investigate the Abandoned Dorm at Duel Academy, they meet Alexis there searching for her missing older brother, Atticus. Alexis enters the dorm by herself but gets kidnapped by Crowler's hired mercenary, Titan. In the dub, he claims he sent her to the Shadow Realm. Jaden wins and frees Alexis. He also offers her his help in finding Atticus, but he leaves before she replies.

After this event, Crowler threatens to expel Jaden and Syrus for visiting the abandoned dorm unless they can beat two extremely difficult Duel opponents (the Paradox Brothers) in a Tag Duel. Alexis offers to take Syrus' place because she was there too and Syrus has little confidence in his Dueling skills, but it is refused. She still aids Jaden in preparing Syrus for the Tag Duel and trying to help him believe in himself.

Alexis soon begins to become good friends with Jaden and Syrus after they win the Tag Duel. She begins to accompany them on occasion during their adventures, showing more signs of interest in Jaden. She is also there watching along side Jaden's friends cheering him on during his duels. At one point she becomes the object of affection to Harrington Rosewood much to her dismay. After Jaden beat him in a duel he agreed to be Alexis' fiancé. However Jaden didn't know what it meant until Alexis told him it meant friend for now.

Mummified friends

Alexis and her friends mummified by the grave keepers.

However, she still continues spending much of her time searching for clues regarding Atticus' disappearance, with the help of Zane. When Chancellor Sheppard reveals the Shadow Riders' plot to take over the world using the seven Spirit Keys, Alexis is one of the seven chosen to hold the Spirit Keys along with Jaden, Dr. Crowler, Professor Banner, Zane Truesdale, Bastion Misawa and Chazz.

Alexis' shadow duel

Alexis faces off against Titan

While the seven begin defending their keys against the Shadow Riders, Jaden becomes involved in a Duel with a figure known as Nightshroud. Alexis suspects that Jaden would be the first Key Keeper to duel against the Shadow Riders. Nightshroud turns out to be Atticus brainwashed after Jaden defeats him, but his memories are gone. Alexis thus searches for a way to recover them and is offered a chance by Titan when he challenged her to a duel which if she wins Atticus' memories can be restored, but if he wins will claim both her and her key. During the duel, Alexis seemed to be doing well against him at first, but when the duel becomes a real shadow game she begins to feel real pain from the attacks of Titan's monsters that are also draining her both body and spirit. She starts to give in to the fact that she may never get Atticus back to normal again and collapses believing she does not have the strength to go on, though with Atticus' strong words of courage, she ultimately wins and restores them. Later on she, Jasmine and Mindy dress up as the Harpie Lady sisters during Duel Monsters Spirit Day. When Jaden loses support after beating the Dark Magician Girl she tells him that most girls like the bad guy.

After this, she meets her old "friend" Pierre, who decides to duel him in order to get back her mother's scarf. He was able to gain the upper hand due to his monsters effects, which involved flipping a coin. Alexis realized that if it wasn't for his Second Coin Toss, he would've lost everytime, and then was able to win thanks to Cyber Prima's effect. Pierre revealed that the whole reason why he did this was because he loved Alexis.

Along with Chazz, Alexis loses her Duel against the final Shadow Rider, Amnael. As a consequence, she is sent to an alternate dimension along with the others who lost where she remains unconscious. Jaden manages to free them by finally defeating Amnael, returning them to Earth.


Alexis in Chazz's imagining of their marriage

Chazz comes out about his infatuation with Alexis after Jaden defeats Amnael. Atticus helps Chazz with his crush and he steals all seven spirit keys in order to force Alexis to Duel with him. Although Chazz plays suggestive cards such as "Hidden Wish" and "Love Letter" to show her how much he cares, Alexis wins in the end, stating that she cannot return his feelings, because she's "in love with Dueling". In this Duel Alexis introduces her "Cyber Angel" series, which she uses to defeat Chazz. Due to Chazz stealing the keys they awaken Kagemaru the leader of the Shadow Riders. Jaden beats him and life returns to normal. She watches Chumley Huffington duel Crowler and seems impressed by his dueling than watches Jaden and Zane duel although their match ends in a tie.

Chazz's crush on Alexis continues throughout the series, although after having his free will sapped by Sartorius, his interest fades, until he is rescued by Jaden and returned to his former self.

Society of Light[]

At the beginning of season two, she joins Syrus and Chazz to watch Jaden duel Aster Phoenix seeming impressed by Aster's skills though he lost to Jaden on purpose. The next day she, Syrus and Jaden watch Chazz duel Reginald Van Howell III where she learns that Crowler made Chazz the star to increase publicity much to her confusion. Chazz gives a speech about no matter the rank he will still win causing Alexis to feel impressed by his change in character. She later decides to move into the Slifer Red dorm with Jaden, Syrus, Chazz and Tyranno Hassleberry because Dr. Crowler begins constantly pressuring her into becoming a pop star Duelist with Atticus. She and the others learn that Syrus will duel Missy to advance to Ra. Alexis says she has heard of Missy and that she is a good duelist. When seeing her duel Syrus she admits she finds her creepy, causing her to feel satisfied when Syrus beats her. The next day, she and the rest of Duel Academy watch Zane go up against Aster. Chazz originally believes that Zane would win because Aster was using the Elemental HEROs that Zane beat in his first duel with Jaden. She and the rest of the school get shocked after seeing Aster defeat Zane. Alexis is later present to watch Aster's rematch against Jaden. She and the others learn that Aster's dad was killed (kidnaped in the dub) and that Aster duels with vengeance. Aster defeats Jaden and takes away his ability to see his cards much to Alexis's shock. She and the others look after Jaden in the hospital and get concerned when Jaden loses his cheerful attitude. While they wonder how to protect the Slifer dorm, Attcius arrives and forces her to be a pop star. Alexis refuses each of his attempts to make her famous. So, Atticus challenges her to a duel, where if she loses, she and Atticus will become a pop singing group named "Bro-bro and Sissy", if she wins, they will stop pressuring her to become a pop star. She wins, and show cases all of her "Cyber Angels" series. After she tells Atticus to "let go of his dream". The next day Jaden leaves Duel academy causing Alexis and the rest of Jaden's friends to find him, but get no such luck. After they all return to the Slifer dorm, they see Chazz in a white outfit. Chazz says soon the school will be bleached white by the Society of Light, causing Alexis and the others to feel confused. The next day, she stops Hassleberry and Syrus from fighting over Jaden. Chazz then appears on the Slifer roof bragging about how Jaden "never saw the light" and telling them to quit worrying about him. Chazz then falls down much to Alexis's annoyance. Alexis later warns Hassleberry not to duel Don Simón else the Slifer dorm would be torn down if he lost. Hassleberry however accepts the challenge and she is forced to watch hoping he can win. Later in the duel Don's mask comes off showing that he is Sartyr. Alexis, Syrus, Bastion, Chazz, and Hassleberry do not seem to know him so he tells them that he is Ra Yellow's head. He then continues the duel which ends up in Hassleberry's victory. Alexis and the rest of the students enjoy some curry together.

This soon changes when Chazz becomes brainwashed into the Society of Light by Sartorius. Chazz begins Dueling Obelisk Blues to brainwash them into following Sartorius as well, and succeeds by using his powerful "White Veil" card that Sartorius gave him. Thus, Alexis feels it's her responsibility as an Obelisk Blue to Duel Chazz and win against him so she could restore him as well as the other Obelisk Blues back to normal, despite Atticus' warnings. During the duel, she starts doubting her dueling skills because Chazz is outsmarting all of her moves and guesses, thus meeting the same fate as her fellow elites.

Asuka Apostle of Light GX

Alexis as member of the Society of Light.

Although she remains brainwashed by Sartorius for the majority of season two watching Jaden duel members of the cult such as Lorenzo, Princess Rose and Bob Banter (a guy who had a crush on her), she finally begins to show some resistance by refusing to play the "White Veil" card given to her by Sartorius during her Duel against Maitre' D in the Genex Tournament. During that Duel, Chazz, Syrus, and Jaden (who are watching) also point out that she is standing up for Obelisk Blues despite that she was now under Sartorious' control in the Society of Light, perhaps suggesting she was trying to break free. Additionally, she vaguely begins to remember the times when she and Jaden were friends when Sartorius orders her to Duel Jaden for his satellite key. However, Sartorius notices this and thus strips Alexis of her mind completely, rendering her a lifeless and empty puppet.

During her Duel with Jaden to get the key for Sartorius, Jaden tries to break Sartorius' control on her and remind her of their friendship by playing cards that Atticus and Chazz would often use ("Swing of Memories" and "Ojama Black", respectively). However, she does not listen to anything Jaden tries convincing her of because her mind was completely stripped by Sartorius, thus she had no memories either. Jaden still manages to win which restores her mind back to normal. Upon being returned, she has no memory of ever entering the Society of Light or being brainwashed but notices that she and Jaden were in a Duel. When she asks Jaden who won, he says she definitely did (as she was now herself again).

Alexis spent the rest of the Genex Tournament recovering from her brainwashing. She eventually got better and joined Sryus and Hassleberry in watching Jaden duel Prince Ojin and beating him. She later witnessed Chazz win the tournament and defeating the rest of the Society of Light: she did, however, point out Chazz having lost to Jaden but he managed to convince her that Duel didn't count as no medals were exchanged. She soon witnessed Blair Flannigan return and challenge Chazz for the last Genex medal she had.(here, it was most evident her brainwashing had taken its toll on her as she tried to remind Chazz who Blair was, forgetting that Blair came to Duel Academy long after Chazz left). Chazz soon beat Blair, though Alexis commented on how close she was to winning and how much she had improved.

Dimension World[]

During season three, Alexis accompanies Jaden, Syrus, Axel Brodie, Jim Crocodile Cook, Jesse Anderson and Hassleberry in solving the mystery behind the new professor, Thelonious Viper's new bio bands that appear to be sucking the energy from Dueling students. When Viper finally collects enough energy to transport Duel Academy to a different dimension, she aids Jaden, Axel, Bastion, Blair, Jim, Jesse, and Hassleberry in fending off the rest of the school, who have been transformed by Yubel into Duel Ghouls though there are times where she needs to be rescued by Jaden.

Yubel is eventually driven from Marcel and the school returned to Duel Academy island but Jesse was left behind. Alexis joins Atticus, Jaden, Chazz, Bastion, Jim, Axel, Hassleberry, and Syrus in finding him by going through a dimensional warp, but are transported to a different dimension than before this time. Jaden desperately searches for Jesse after arriving, regardless of the village elder whom they meet's warning not to search at night but to wait for day, as night is when the evil Duel Monster Spirits strike. The others feel it is their responsibility as a team to follow him as well.

However, Jaden becomes so obsessed with finding Jesse that he doesn't notice when Alexis, Atticus, Chazz and Hassleberry all fall behind. The four begin to think that Jaden doesn't care about them anymore and decide not to follow. They are eventually captured by Brron, Mad King of Dark World, and sacrificed by him to create the "Super Polymerization" card. Before Alexis is sacrificed, she sadly says while her emotions are amplified by the spell on her "I thought we were friends. Guess not. It's sad to know that..."

It is later discovered by Bastion that they are not dead, but simply transported to an alternate, lifeless and cold dimension. Jaden would still be able to rescue them if he defeats Yubel in a Duel. Jaden instead decides to make up for all the wrongs he did, to Yubel and his friends, by fusing his spirit with Yubel's so they could be together again. This consequently restored the dimensions' balance to normal, releasing his friends.


During the fourth season, Alexis finds Jaden's new and serious personality to be abrasive and sullen, especially when he tried interrogating Atticus despite her brother's troubled state in the hospital, and claims Jaden had changed. She especially gets mad when Jaden coerces her injured brother into a Duel using the Nightshroud mask, until she discovers it was Atticus' idea. In general, Alexis and Jaden's friendship seems to have become strained in season four. Alexis once tries to make amends with him, saying they are still friends despite what occurred in the alternate dimension, also inviting him to the Duel Academy party. Jaden simply says he may go ("only if I want to") then walks away.

At the party, Alexis begins to doubt that Jaden will ever come as time goes by, and also that things will ever be right between them again. As she is about to leave, Jaden finally shows up, and Hassleberry pairs them as a Tag Duel for the Tag Duel tournament assuming they chose each other. Though they win all of their Duels, Alexis begins to get angry because Jaden continues to ignore her cards and only thinks of his own.

During the final Tag Duel against Blair and Hassleberry, Alexis agrees to switch partners and become Hassleberry's partner when Blair plays "Partner Change" due to Jaden's disregard for her feelings and cards. Alexis eventually decides to destroy "Partner Change" and become Jaden's partner again after Jaden refers to their first duel and shows that he's now listening. Alexis uses their cards together to win the Tag Duel. Afterwards, Jaden and Alexis have a talk alone, repairing their friendship. Alexis also starts to tell Jaden how she feels about him, but decides to keep it to herself. It is also through this last duel with Jaden that Alexis makes up her mind to study abroad at the Duel College in North America.


Alexis at the Graduation Party.

Later, a mysterious duelist, who refers to himself as "Trueman" begins to invade Duel Academy and sends the Duelists he defeats into the World of Darkness. Alexis is one of the last students standing, along with Atticus, Mindy and Jasmine. She is eventually Dueled and defeated too, and she and her deck are engulfed in darkness just as Jaden arrives.

In the World of Darkness, Alexis greatly begins to doubt her abilities in her teaching career at Duel Academy. She has nightmares where the students continue to mock her and insist on how awful of a teacher she is while refusing to attend her classes. Like the other students, she eventually becomes completely consumed by the darkness of her thoughts, until Jaden's words inspire her and return her to Duel Academy after telling her "students" about him.

At the Graduation Ceremony, she gave a heart warming speech at Graduation about how no matter how tough something is, we can always overcome it with friends by our side. During the party, she, Jesse and Axel have a conversation outside, confident that they will see Jaden again. She is likely now teaching, as she stated that as everyone will move on, she will not be left behind, allowing herself to move on from the past and heading towards the future. She then attends the graduation party with the others where she wears a dress causing Chazz and Syrus to blush. Later after the party she, Jesse and Axel stand by the lake and wonder where Jaden went and talk about how they will all see each other again.

Other appearances[]

In the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga, Alexis is the same in terms of ranking, strength, and motivation. She longs to be viewed as a Duelist by her peers, rather than simply a female.


Jaden Yuki[]

Many fans believe that Alexis has a crush on Jaden, which was first evident at the beginning of the series because of Jaden's Dueling skills, she became flustered about him, even challenging him to a Duel, much to Jasmine's dismay.[1] She was willing to follow him wherever he went, even if it lead to a series of unfortunate events, Jaden was still there to help her. She was also there to cheer him on during his Duels, and tried cheering him up when things were bad.[8][9] At times when Jaden put himself in danger, she would always get angered for his reckless actions.

During the Dimension World arc onwards, their relationship became more complicated because of Jaden's obsession with finding Jesse. She wanted to support him and have faith in him although the others began doubting him. As Jaden's obsession got worse, she eventually came to agree with the others that all Jaden cared about now was Jesse, and she and his other friends were insignificant to him. As she was being sacrificed, she sadly said while her negative emotions were being amplified by a spell "I thought we were friends. Guess not. It's sad to know that...".[10]

In season 4, their relationship has generally grown apart, due to Jaden's new personality.[11] But they were able to turn things around during the Duel Academy's Tag Duel tournament as Jaden started acting like his old self again.[12]

Alexis' interest in Jaden is shown more explicitly in the English version; in the original, Asuka never shows romantic interest towards anyone, which leads to her brother's repeated attempts to get her to notice someone. But in season 1, Alexis was shown staring, smiling at Jaden after he mocked Crowler. In episode 161 when she's seen thinking about him, and more strongly indicated in the next episode on two occasions. The first is when she's clearly frustrated with Jaden getting along with Blair during the pair Duel, and later after she tells him about her decision based on his influence; she just says she was glad she met him, but has a lot of trouble assembling her words, and blushes while she's speaking. But as Jaden leaves, a tear runs down her cheek, implying that she truly does have a crush on Jaden.

In the dub, Alexis' affections toward Jaden can be traced as early on as episode 3. Her dormmate, Jasmine wondered if Alexis was "falling for that Slifer", the "Slifer" being referred to as Jaden. In the Japanese version, Alexis merely refers to Jaden as "interesting". Alexis consistently will respond to another female showing interest in Jaden. For example, in episode 106 when Blair give Jaden a flirty wink, she is clearly not pleased this is also present in the original version. Similarly, in dubbed episode 37, Chazz remarks that Tania might be Jaden's "type" after all. Alexis then vehemently denies this, retorting, "...no way Jaden would ever date that thing". The notion is furthered when Jaden and Syrus Duel the Paradox Brothers. Alexis tells Bastion that she "is happy that Jaden gets to stay at the Academy." Bastion corrects her by assuming that she meant Jaden and Syrus, and presumably figures out that Alexis has a crush on Jaden when Alexis tries to change the subject. A similar situation also ensues when Mindy, Alexis' good friend and roommate, exclaims that she would never let a Slifer Red stay on campus. In episode 15, things take a turn when Harrington Rosewood challenges Jaden to a Duel with the prize of being Alexis' fiancé. Despite Jaden winning the Duel, his naiveté allows Alexis to downplay the role to one of friendship in the English version, stating, "...it means friend, at least for now, big guy."; in the Japanese version, Asuka instead calls Judai an idiot for not knowing the definition of the word "fiancé". Another example of Alexis' affection towards Jaden is in episode 42 after Jaden wins against the Dark Magician Girl. Everyone else is mad at Jaden for winning and Jaden says "It's not easy being the bad guy." Alexis then replies "Aw, sometimes the girls like the bad guys," but then quickly tries to cover it up. In addition, after Jaden nearly gets killed in his Duel with a Duel Monster Spirit in the alternate dimension, Alexis later confronts him personally and is mad at him for unnecessarily putting himself at risk of dying. However, while Alexis is controlled by Sartorius she shows a great deal of dislike for Jaden, referring to him as a "dork" and "loser" multiple times.

On the other hand, Jaden shows some slight affection for Alexis in the original Japanese for the first few episodes. For example, in episode 2, Alexis warns them that Chazz and his friends were all just a bunch of jerks. Jaden asks if Alexis was worried about him because she fell in love with him at first sight, causing her to giggle. In the dub as well, they would occasionally flirt. In episode 3, after she destroys one of his monsters, Alexis asks if he was impressed. Jaden replies cheekily, "Impressed? I think I'm in love." Alexis replies with, "You're sweet, too bad I have to crush you."

Syrus Truesdale[]

Alexis and Syrus are good friends. Although in episode 3, Syrus finds a fake love letter in his locker and thinks that Alexis wrote it to him and eventually falls for her that he goes to the Obelisk Blue girls' dorm to see her, only to be caught by the other girls and be held hostage be Jasmine and Mindy. However, after Jaden won the duel against Alexis, she and Syrus still remain as friends. Syrus still has a crush on Alexis seeing how he and Chazz fought over who would be her partner in the tag duel tournament in season 4.

Bastion Misawa[]

In the manga, Alexis doesn't display any particular romantic feelings for Jaden, but is the object of Bastion Misawa's affections. Throughout the manga, Bastion shows a lot of interest in Alexis, becoming extremely fidgety and often nervous when she is around. He is noted as being shy with Alexis, and lacks the courage to ask her for her cell phone number. Alexis is also possibly more flirtatious in the manga, since Syrus Truesdale is quoted as calling her a "siren." In the anime, she and Bastion are good friends. In Season 1, she called his Water Dragon a "total washout" and said that her Etoile Cyber was strong, even though it wasn't nearly as powerful as Bastion's Water Dragon.

Atticus Rhodes[]

Alexis and Atticus are siblings and in the past they were shown to be very close to each other with Atticus teaching her how to duel and it is all thanks to his teachings Alexis was able to grow strong. Alexis at times is shown to get annoyed by Atticus celebrity thing but as a brother and sister they care for each other. Alexis is shown to be very concern for Atticus and cares for his well being. Before the events of the anime after he mysteriously disappeared in a old abandon dorm, she desperately tries to find him with the help of Zane and when he was comatose after being saved from Nightshroud influence by Jaden, she stays by his bed side and is desperately worried.

Zane Truesdale[]

Among Zane's friends, Alexis is the one who is seen hanging out with him the most. During her first year, she would often been seen talking to Zane in the Lighthouse and he also helped her in finding clues about Atticus while he disappeared and while Atticus disappeared, Zane acted as an older brother figure to her and is shown to care for Alexis and her well-being and she is shown to be grateful for his help. Although they never talk again after Zane graduates.

Chazz Princeton[]

Alexis finds Chazz vain and isn't willing to date him. In Season 1 Episode 2, she told Jaden that Chazz was a jerk. However when she defeated him in a duel near the end of Season 1, she walked up to him, smiled and said "Still friends?" In a Season 3 episode, Chazz has a can of blue paint spilled on him. She walks up to him and says, "Why so blue?" Chazz was also the reason why Alexis joined the Society of Light in the first place.


Cyber Girl[]

Alexis uses a "Cyber Girl" Deck, comprised of monsters that are based around dance-related sports. She originally focused on utilizing her "Cyber Blader" while increasing it's abilities through cards such as "Fusion Weapon". She also likes to use a combination of "Etoile Cyber" and "Doble Passe" to inflict large amounts of damage to her opponent whilst protecting her monster, which she later uses as Fusion Material or a Tribute for her stronger monsters. Alexis later incorporates the "Cyber Angel" archetype into her Deck, with more of a focus on Ritual Summoning. To quickly acquire the necessary cards, Alexis uses cards such as "Cyber Petit Angel" and "Ritual Sanctuary" while supporting them through "Fulfillment of the Contract" and "Ritual Weapon". Alexis also uses her "Cyber Prima" with "Prima Light" as a contingency if her original strategies fail.

White Night[]

While being stripped of her free will and controlled by Sartorius, Alexis ran a "White Night" Deck, which was based on the physical feeling of cold, as it focused on slowly exhausting her opponents while preventing them from countering her attacks. She was highly protective of the cards in this Deck, especially "White Veil", because when Jaden destroyed it in episode 94, she vowed to Jaden that he would pay. (In the Japanese version, she is quoted as saying, "My sacred 'White Veil'… how dare you do that to it!")


During several flashbacks, Alexis is shown Dueling her childhood classmate Pierre (episode 43) and her brother Atticus (93). Her Deck is also shown during flashback in episode 41.
