Jesse Wheeler (unnamed in the Japanese version) is a character who appears in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime.



Jesse is similar in appearance to Joey Wheeler, sporting dirty blond hair and the same sporadic hairstyle. He also possesses a criminal mark. However, he appears alongside a Duelist who resembles Frost, indicating he was intended as a reference to Frost's partner, Thunder, who also happens to resemble Joey.


Like Joey Wheeler (with whom he shares voice actor Wayne Grayson), Jesse speaks with a Brooklyn accent.


While Dueling in the Daimon Area, Jesse defeats his opponent's "Giant Orc" with "Lycanthrope", telling him to try harder after the Duel ends. In the dub, a spectator asks if Jesse is in fact Joey Wheeler, to which another promptly replies, "No man, that's his cousin Jesse Wheeler".

In the Japanese version, Jesse was unnamed and not stated to be a relative of Joey Wheeler.
