Alexis Rhodes, known as Asuka Tenjoin (天上院明日香, Tenjōin Asuka) in the Japanese version, is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga.
Alexis' manga-counterpart is the same as her anime-counterpart in terms of ranking, strength, looks, and motivation, though the only key difference is that she doesn't display any romantic feelings for Jaden, but is the object of Bastion Misawa's affections. She does also feel awkward for her older brother's playful/unserious attitudes, usually reacting with a facepalm and sighs heavily each time other characters are referring to Atticus's weird habits/characteristics. What does make her feel embarrassed/awkward the most is when people call her brother by his self-given nickname "Rhodie" (in the English version)/"Fubu-king" (Japanese original version) or when somebody asks Alexis who "Rhodie"/"Fubu-king" would be, like Syrus once did so.
Alexis longs to be viewed as a Duelist by her peers, rather than simply a female, and goes out of her way to take Seika Kohinata's place in a Duel against Jaden. Though she loses, she still becomes Miss Duel Academy, as Seika withdraws from the competition, feeling unable to accept the title after seeing how much acclaim Alexis won for her Duel. Alexis participates in the tournament hosted at Duel Academy. She fights Reggie MacKenzie in the preliminaries and loses. She later Duels David Rabb in the finals; while she is frustrated by the loss, she sees it as an opportunity to motivate herself to become a better Duelist.
Alexis plays an Ice Deck based on the distribution of Ice Counters through the usage of several cards. The placement of Ice Counters on monsters triggers the effects of various support cards, giving Alexis access to a myriad of effects ranging from the negation of card effects to immobilizing her opponent's monsters. Several of Alexis' cards also display a strong relation to ice or cold even if they don't rely on "Ice Counters", such as her "Ice Queen" and "Twin Pillars of Ice."
