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

He appears in-game after the player reaches Stage 13 of Duel World (DM), at which point his Character Unlock Missions become available. Prior to December 21, 2017, he was exclusive to the special event Fear the Deck of Terror! The Destiny Board of Doom, only being able to be dueled or unlocked during the event.

Black Gate Keys are normally required to Duel Yami Bakura at the Gate. During the special event Fear the Deck of Terror! The Destiny Board of Doom, 10-sided dice are required instead.

Description

When Yugi's classmate Bakura was possessed by the evil spirit within the Millennium Ring, he transformed into Yami Bakura. He is merciless and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal. Yami Bakura's Occult Deck focuses on Fiend and Zombie-Type cards.

Biography

Yami Bakura initially appeared in Duel Links during the event "Fear the Deck of Terror! The Destiny Board of Doom."

Upon arrival, he stated he only arrived to keep an eye on Yami Yugi. Upon being confronted by the latter, Yami Bakura stated he wasn't planning anything and simply wanted to not be forgotten.

When he encountered Seto Kaiba, Yami Bakura referred to him as "the game master" before stating he knows his place in Duel Links as an NPC. Kaiba neither confirmed or denied if Yami Bakura truly was one.

By the time the event ended, Yami Bakura disappeared while claiming that he "might ressurect some day."

  • In the voice lines found in the game files, Yami Bakura labels "Dimensional Fissure" as a Trap Card when in the actuality, it is a Spell Card.
