Welcome to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia, feel free to ask me if you have doubts. You may also like to take a look to our FAQ if you have questions. --Dragon Slayer (Contribs Count) 19:48, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Nice Work

Wow, just gotta say you're doing an awesome job with the Arabic names. -- Deltaneos 10:51, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I'm always glad to help with what I can ^_^ -- Melik el-Al'ab 11:39, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Throwing in a "me too" here. Good job :) Danny Lilithborne 08:00, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you as well! Just doing my job =D -- Melik el-Al'ab 08:01, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I also have to say, you've been doing a great job. So many cards to give names Speedball 19:47, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Aww c'mon guy, I'm turning red :$ -- Melik el-Al'ab 19:58, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Arabic GX?

I notice you added the Arabic names for Yu-Gi-Oh! GX characters. I didn't know it was dubbed in Arabic, was it? -- Deltaneos (talk) 18:26, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Aha, indeed it was! Yu-Gi-Oh! actually began airing in Arabic 5 years ago! (Can you believe it?) The entire Yu-Gi-Oh! second series has been dubbed, along with a chunk of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. I've seen the entire second series anime in Arabic, but I didn't follow the Arabic GX due to time constraints. (In case you're wondering, what's currently being aired is the 3rd -probably- rerun of the Waking the Dragons season, usually they'll rerun old seasons as fillers until new seasons are dubbed) I'm not sure to what season GX has been dubbed, but the last time I saw it the Arabic dub has already reached the Jaden vs. Kagemaru duel (right after the Jaden vs. Amnael duel), do you know what season that was? -- Melik el-Al'ab 19:02, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
That would be season one. Back when I used to see Yu-Gi-Oh! GX on tv, they played reruns of the last half season before showing they got new episodes. Although I would really have prefered reruns of Yu-Gi-Oh!. Now they don't show either. One more favour, could you add the channel it's shown in Arabic to the network other sections of the infoboxes in the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX pages? -- Deltaneos (talk) 19:21, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
It's already there! (And has been there since I first came to this Wiki! Wouldn't blame you if you didn't notice it, though.) The network's name is MBC 3, you probably didn't notice it because it has the flag of the United Arab Emirates (the country of broadcast, in Dubai to be precise) instead of the flag of Saudi Arabia. MBC 3 airs all sorts of kids shows 24-7. I grew up watching Pokémon, Digimon (1-4), and Yu-Gi-Oh! (all have proved very popular here). From Dubai, the channel airs all across the Middle East and some other parts in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Ever been to Dubai? It's a tourist-magnet! Did you know that Burj Al Arab in Dubai is the tallest hotel in the world? -- Melik el-Al'ab 19:34, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
Heh, whoops. I don't know if this makes it better or worse, but I had noticed it was there before and forgot since. No, I've never been to Dubai, but I have heard of the Burj Al Arab, being the tallest hotel in the world. -- Deltaneos (talk) 19:59, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
Hehe... Well, I recommend considering Dubai as a vacation stop some time. Oh by the way, they're gonna open a new hotel even taller than Burj Al Arab, it's called the Rose Tower also located in Dubai, and is 3 meters taller than its unfinished competitor, the Ryugyong Hotel of Pyongyang, North Korea. Woohoo! Go Dubai! -- Melik el-Al'ab 20:19, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Dark Magician Knight

It appeared, when Yugi and Joey duelled the Big Five, at the very end of the duel. -- Deltaneos (talk) 19:35, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Hmm... I think you're right, but either way I can't really remember its name. I vow to add it as soon as I find out its name for certain! -- Melik el-Al'ab 17:52, 29 July 2008 (UTC)


Hey, I have seen you a lot here and I have never found a reason to talk to you (not trying to be rude, but it would be awkward to just say hi). But I found are reason: I know you watch the show but do you have a deck? Dmaster (Contribs Count) 04:57, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Hey there, Dmaster! That's an interesting question, actually. Technically I don't own a proper deck now since my original deck got lost. My old deck had a Spellcaster theme with cards like Silent Magician LV8, Magical Marionette, and Magician's Circle, as well as some useful cards like Riryoku, Negate Attack, and Ekibyo Drakmord. I also kept a few Dragons in there, such as the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Oh, and I almost forgot the Dark Blade and Kiryu combo! Yeah, it might have been a little weak strategically, but it sure was what I could've called my deck, since I had to scavenge every single card in it from here and there. Even so, I made my deck like that merely out of circumstance. If I had the choice and freedom of picking my cards, I would have made a Toon Deck!. I've loved Toons ever since I first saw them in the posession of Pegasus when I was 12 years old. I even got the Starter Deck: Pegasus just so I can at least own (but sadly never use) some Toon Monsters as well as Toon World. Relinquished was quite a helpful card as well. Anyway, as I said my old Spellcaster deck went missing, and eventually cards stopped selling here (authentic cards, at least), and so I was never really able to build another working deck.
Although, the virtual world of video games has gotten me back into the game! It started when I began building decks on YVD, and eventually when Yu-Gi-Oh! appeared on the DS. I now have a virtual Toon Deck (Almost a dream come true), as well as some other decks, including a Machine Deck and a -failed- Light Deck, among MANY others. I am interested in making an Egyptian-themed deck as well. I am also fascinated by the Vehicroids, Crystal Beasts, and the Aliens.
So as you can see, I don't currently have a working deck. I have a virtual Toon Deck which I love and wish to build in real-life. Besides Toons though, I have no real likes and dislikes among card types. Oh my, I seem to have been rambling on for too long, I really apologize. Sorry ^_^;
By the way, I wouldn't mind a friendly "hi!" for no reason. Heck, I'd probably do it. Love the "Seto Stands Up For it" GIF on your page, by the way! Hilarious xD Oh look, I've written half a book and I still can't end this x] anyway... lemme just stop. -- Melik el-Al'ab 10:31, 13 August 2008 (UTC) فلتكن التنانين إلى جانبك - May the Dragons be with you!
    • What I write in two sentences you reply with four paragraphs XD. I liked toons when they came out, most of all Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon (3000 direct attack unless your opponent has a toon...when doea that ever happen!). You mention the DS...what game do you have on it? Dmaster (Contribs Count) 15:37, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
      • I have Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour. A bit behind the times, yes, but each time I want to get a newer game like Spirit Caller or World Championship 2008, something always gets in the way, to the point where I swore I'd get the next game no matter what! -- Melik el-Al'ab 16:55, 13 August 2008 (UTC) الصبر مفتاح الفرج - Patience is a virtue.
        • I have all three of those so if I can get my Wi-fi to work and if you have wi-fi, theoretically we could duel. :) Dmaster (Contribs Count) 16:59, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
          • Yes, I do have Wi-Fi, and an across-the-globe duel sound like fun! I'll be looking forward to that in the future, inshallah! -- Melik el-Al'ab 17:38, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Happy Fasting!

Are you a moslem? If you are, I just want to say happy fasting! -- J0V1 P4RD0MU4N S14G14N the Keyblade Master 12:26, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Heh, thank you J0V1, indeed I am. I wish you happy fasting as well! ;-) - Melik el-Al'ab 13:54, 31 August 2008 (UTC)


when you use future fusion is the fusion monster still summoned after you to stand by phases even if the monster are removed from you grave Catface 18:34, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Umm... Honestly, I'm not sure. It seems that it doesn't matter what happens to the Fusion Material Monsters after they're sent to the Graveyard, but I'm not in any position to confirm this. You'd better ask someone else, or discuss it in the Future Fusion's Discussion Page. Sorry! -- Melik el-Al'ab 19:32, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Happy Idul Fitri

Happy Idul Fitry, Melik. Minal 'aidin wal fa'idzin (did I write it wrong?). Do you celebrate Idul Fitri today? Because i'll celebrate it tomorrow. -- J0V1 P4RD0MU4N S14G14N the Keyblade Master 10:51, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Thank you very much, J0V1! Yes, we celebrate today, and yeah you got it right! =D Happy Idul Fitr to you to! Kul 'am wa ant bikheir! Have fun! -- Melik el-Al'ab 10:57, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
Umm,what does the last sentence mean? -- J0V1 P4RD0MU4N S14G14N the Keyblade Master 10:59, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. "Kul 'am wa ant bikheir" (كل عام وأنت بخير) Literally it would mean "Every year and you're okay" meaning "I hope you stay healthy every year (as in, all the time)". It's one of many phrases commonly said in various occasions, especially in Idul Fitr and Idul Adha. =)
Oh, thanks! -- J0V1 P4RD0MU4N S14G14N the Keyblade Master 11:21, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
You're welcome! -- Melik el-Al'ab 13:31, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Card names while speaking Arabic

Curiously, if you were speaking in Arabic with someone about Yu-Gi-Oh!, would you use the cards' Arabic or English names? -- Deltaneos (talk) 22:36, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

  • That's a good question actually. The fandom refers to cards by 3 ways:
  • Official Arabic names, when referring to the Arabic anime, or when the person is influenced by it. (This is especially common with the younger fans who got hooked to Yu-Gi-Oh! through the Arabic anime.)
  • Unofficial Arabic names, when referring to cards that don’t have official Arabic names while using official Arabic names, or when unsatisfied with the Arabic anime and its translations. (This is found in three groups: 1-Fans playing the card game in Arabic with cards they don’t know the names for, especially young fans trying to mimic the characters in the Arabic anime. 2-Disgruntled fans who are unsatisfied by the Arabic translations. 3-Arabic fans of the Japanese or English animes and mangas.)
  • English names (This could happen for many reasons, including the person’s irrelevance to the Arabic anime, either intentionally distancing themselves or if they got hooked through outside sources such as the Japanese or English animes or mangas. Also, older fans or young fans who are not influenced by the Arabic anime playing the card game might use the English names because they are written on the cards, if not deciding to play the entire game in English.)
It is worthy to note that on forums and other written media, people will write the Arabic name (official or not) followed by the English name in brackets. This is because Arabic names are not common among non-Arabic-anime-watchers, because names in the Arabic anime can change, and because few people can guess the card if the name was translated.
If you were referring to me, I rarely discuss Yu-Gi-Oh! in Arabic nowadays. I talk about Yu-Gi-Oh! in English unless I’m referring to the Arabic anime, and also duel in full English most of the time. In my younger days (I feel so old saying that, I’m only 16 now >_>) I used to duel in Arabic more though. Ah, nostalgia!
The reason for this mess is definitely because no official Arabic card game exists, and so there is no unified list of Arabic names for the cards (something which I dream of). Y’know I saw a guy carrying Arabic cards once. I could only get a glimpse though, but I recognized Dark Magician. -- Melik el-Al'ab 13:43, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
