Top 10 Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds Duels of All Time
It’s time to rev it up! Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for Top 10 Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Duels of All Time.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the best card games on and off motorcycles that 5D’s has to offer, including ones that were not dubbed in English. Also, since some duels include integral plot points, a spoiler warning is in effect.

#10: Yusei VS Jack

Through trials and tribulations, Yusei was able to win his way to the championship match of the Fortune Cup. Dueling Jack Atlas, his former best friend turned rival, this duel was an intense show of strategy while also delivering the much needed backstory as to why Jack would betray his friends. Additionally, seeing the Crimson Dragon appear was quite the sight to see as he all four current Signers on a trippy journey to learn more about their role in this tale. In the end, Yusei ends up the victor and is dubbed “Satellite’s Shooting Star.”

#9: Yusei VS Primo

After Yusei foils Yiliaster’s plan to overrun Neo Domino City with Duelbots, the hot-headed Primo appears to drive Yusei back. Utilizing a monster that haunts Yusei, the powerful Meklord Emperor Wisel, Primo plans to wipe the floor with him. The match is intense as Yusei must not only face a monster he hasn’t been able to defeat, but he also must perfect Accel Synchro to conquer this beast. Watching as Yusei’s dueling ability grow by leaps and bounds throughout this duel is one of the most satisfying aspects about it. Plus, Primo wanting Yusei to dance like a Bee is truly bizarre.

#8: Crow VS Greiger

Mistaking Crow for a Signer, Greiger, revived as a Dark Signer, challenges Crow to a high-stake duel for their souls. As the two duelists clash in battle, their backstories are also shared between them, making them realize that they have more in common than they thought. This match had the perfect balance between action and emotion as we learn about Crow’s childhood and what keeps him going, despite being from the Satellite.

#7: Team 5Ds VS Team Ragnarok

It’s the semi-final of the World Racing Grand Prix and Team 5Ds faces their most menacing foe yet: Team Ragnarok! Throughout the match, you learn that Team Ragnarok is written to be a mirror of Team 5Ds. Both teams have a powerhouse duelist, a wildcard, and their stoic leader to carry the group to victory. Keeping that concept in mind, the duel is chock full of tricky card effects and effective teamwork. And, despite it being the longest duel of Yugioh 5Ds, the faceoff managed to keep everyone on the edge of their seats in anticipation for the next move. In the end, Team Ragnarok’s Nordic gods fell to the overwhelming might of the Crimson Dragon’s chosen one.

#6: Rex Goodwin VS Yusei, Jack, and Crow

The finale of the first season is the power-hungry Rex Goodwin dueling against Yusei, Jack, and Crow to become the ultimate Signer and Dark Signer combo. And as every corrupt leader does, he seeks to become the ruler of this world, but of course, the heroic Signers aren’t going to let that happen. This nail-biting duel explains Rex’s role and what he planned to accomplish, while keeping audience members entertained with an unseen and formidable Earthbound Immortal. As the duel goes on, one-by-one, each hero loses their Life Points, leaving Yusei on his lonesome. The duel finally turns around when Yusei gains the Head of the Dragon mark, allowing him to finish off Goodwin with his Majestic Star Dragon.

#5: Yusei VS Akiza

The last duelist standing in Yusei’s path to Jack is Akiza, the Black Rose Witch. Everyone has seen what her psychic powers can do, and Yusei’s plan is to save Akiza from herself. The duel is an emotional roller-coaster as Akiza unveils her fear of her own powers and how alone she feels in a world that doesn’t accept her. As a person from the Satellite, Yusei understands Akiza’s plight, and tries his best to befriend her during this duel. Despite her overwhelming might and hostility, Yusei breaks Akiza’s physical and metaphorical mask and ends up the victor.

#4: Jack VS Carly

Jack has been seeking to save Carly from her dark fate, and the opportunity finally arises when he duels her to save the world. Carly is a sly duelist, using not only warped versions of her old monsters, but also emotional manipulation to get what she wants out of Jack. She even goes as far as brainwashing Jack into believing he’s lost the duel and in turn is a Dark Signer. However, the illusion is shattered, and Jack is able to dissipate Carly’s mind games to win the duel. The ending pulls your heartstrings as Jack and Carly share an embrace before she disappears.

#3: Yusei VS Z-ONE

The final duel against the true mastermind of Yiliaster has finally arrived. This duel is not only a tough challenge for Yusei, but it contains a huge twist for the audience as well. We were all led to believe that Z-ONE is Yusei from the future, but instead he is a nameless scientist who surgically turns himself into a Yusei replica in order to bring hope to the people of his time. So it’s Yusei versus Yusei-clone as a battle to save the future rages on. Z-ONE’s seemingly impenetrable Timelords prove a challenge, but Yusei and his Shooting Quasar Dragon swoop in to save the world.

#2: Yusei VS Kalin

Yusei has a poor track record with his buds staying friendly, as another one of his old pals has gone rogue. Kalin, an old friend from his younger days, appears as a Dark Signer, ready to duel Yusei for revenge. Not only are we treated to the past of Team Satisfaction, but we’re given a hard hitting duel that kept out eyes glues to the screen. It serves as a good introduction to what the real Dark Signers are capable of and to flesh out the cut-throat world of the Satellite. We also get to learn the dangers of card games on motor cycles.

Before we get to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Aporia VS Jack, Leo, and Luna

Yusei VS Jack

#1: Yusei VS Aporia

The sci-fi elements were strong with this duel as all of Team New World combines to become their true form: Aporia, and Yusei must fight this mechanical monstrosity on his own. Not only does he face each of the Meklord Emperors, Yusei must also fight their wormy overlord, Meklord Astro Mekanikle. This duel has not only the championship at stake, but also the entire city as Aporia brings the Ark Cradle, an upside-down replica of Neo Domino City, crashing down upon everyone’s heads. This epic match shows what Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds is all about: high octane action, world-changing risks, and the power of never giving into despair.
