Decks

In Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, Honda's Deck consists of multiple copies of "Dark Plant", "Kuriboh" and "Skull Servant".

In Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters III: Tri-Holy God Advent and Yu-Gi-Oh! Dark Duel Stories, Tristan's Deck consists of various low-Level monsters.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2004, Tristan's Deck contains mostly low ATK and DEF Normal Monsters. His high ATK monsters include "Stone D.", "Hyozanryu", "Mikazukinoyaiba" and "Goblin Attack Force" and he has a number of Equip Spell Cards, which can increase ATK.

Tristan's WCT2005 deck is a big improvement over his '04 one. His strategy revolves around using equip spells and fusing monsters to form strong ones like Skull Knight and Meteor B. Dragon. He's one of the most challenging tier 1 opponents in the game, surprisingly enough, as he uses equip spells that can be put back at the top of his deck if they're sent from the field to the graveyard.
