Differences in adaptations

  • A shot of Tristan holding up Joey and telling him to cheer for Yugi is cut from the dub.
  • A scene of Mokuba thinking Yugi has no chance and his brother is definitely going to win is also cut.

Mistakes

Dub error 6

This arrows show the error.

  • In the original version, Joey's dream is actually a flashback to a tournament he entered before Duelist Kingdom, but he uses "Shield & Sword", which he obtained on the boat to the island through trade.
  • In the dub, the text "Attack" and "Defense" shouldn't be on the the colored auras.
  • When Joey's opponent shows his "Lesser Dragon" card, it's a Level 5 or higher monster when it's actually a Level 4 monster.
