A Duelist is the official term for a player of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. This term originated from the usage in the anime and manga of the franchise.

Essentially, a Duelist can refer to a player in a Duel, though the term is more widely used for anyone who frequently plays the card game.

Note, Since a Duelist refers to a person, the word is generally capitalized.
