Espa Roba is a playable Legendary Duelist in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. This is a video game depiction of Espa Roba, a character from the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime.

He first appeared during special events as a roaming opponent. He also appeared as an opponent during the special event Duelist Chronicles: Battle City Begins!

Prior to December 18, 2018, he was exclusive to the special event Espa Roba's Duel Carnival, only being able to be dueled or unlocked during the event.

Green Gate Keys are required to challenge him at the Gate.

Description

The psychic Espa Roba channels the energies of the universe to read his opponent's hand during a Duel - or so he claims. Unfortunately, Joey debunked his cosmic powers as a hoax during Battle City. But what isn't fake are his Dueling skills, punishing Joey with his ace monster "Jinzo"

Roba Deck

Roaming Duelist (first event)

During his Duel with Bella, he proclaimed that he was going to showcase his real non-psychic abilities, and that he is no longer the psychic Duelist. However, he felt himself using ESP, and questioned why as he didn't bring his brothers to Duel Links. He thought the universe must've gave him ESP just recently, and announced that he is now an actual psychic Duelist. Bella thought to herself that he should end his turn.
