Description in the game

After graduating from Duel Academy, Zane Truesdale was on the fast track to becoming the greatest Duelist in the pro leagues. However, his defeat against Aster Phoenix set him on a dark path where his only desire was victory - at any cost. As the master of the Cyber Style, Zane uses Cyber End Dragon to power his Underworld Deck with forbidden techniques.


Zane Truesdale (Ryo Marufuji in JP) is the top duelist of Duel Academy, being one of the few people who were able to beat Jaden in a duel, as well as the rival of Jaden Yuki in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. Later in the anime/manga, after experiencing several losses and losing hope, he participated in an underground duel where he is then forced to change his ways and eventually becomes "Dark Zane", becoming more aggressive and unforgiving with his playstyle.

A Fusion Summon of this card can only be done with the above Fusion Material Monsters. If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent.

His signature card is Cyber Dragon, which is an archetype consisting of mostly light attribute monsters. Cyber Dragon shares many similarities to Blue-Eyes White Dragon, with the exception that it is not a normal monster. After his personality transformation later in the series, Zane uses a different deck. While still focusing on Cyber Dragons, they mostly consists of their darkened version.

Previous Event

Zane is playable at Victory Carnival 2018

The Event was held on 15 July 2018 in Tokyo Japan and 22 July 2018 in Osaka Japan. Players will get to experience playing Duel Links in a large touch screen!

Zane Truesdale's Deck

During Jump Victory Carnival 2018, Zane Truesdale was included as a playable character for people who went to the event and tried Duel Links section. Here, Zane used a fusion based Cyber Dragon deck with Classic Cyber Dragon cards combined with more modern support. Particularly we saw cards such as Cyber Dragon, Cyber Dragon Core, Evolution Burst, Power Bond, Power Wall, Cyber End Dragon, and Cyber Twin Dragon which are still unavailable to Duel Links players as of now. This may suggest that they will soon be added to Duel Links, which has long been sought after by the community. This also may also suggest that Zane Truesdale himself will soon be playable and come with support focused around Cyber Dragons and not Cyber Dark Dragons.

Yo we need to add cyber dragon konami. It’s unacceptable to keep using cards that aren’t the real thing. It can’t always work like that because it can easily be destroyed by battle with its low attack points.

Not like that's the first or only time they've depicted a monster of a card type that doesn't exist in Duel Links in card art. That Wacky Magic! had Tempest Magician, a Synchro, well over a year before we got 5D's. It's not even the first to depict an Xyz, Gravity Blaster has Number 9: Dyson Sphere. Summon Gate has a Synchro, Xyz AND Pendulum in its art. Arrivalrivals even depicts a Link Monster.

But there is no Cyber Dragon related to XYZ archetype, though?

Only similar thing is that both are LIGHT Machines with Fusion as a boss....and there's also the Union monster Armored Cybern.

No, those are (obviously) part of the Cyber Dragon archetype, not the XYZ archetype.

It is possible, but you typically want to wait until you can farm lvl 40 Legendary Duelists with a high assessment score deck. At lvl 40, the generic trash cards are removed from their reward pool so you have a much better chance at getting the rare cards you want.

Except it's 2019 March and level 40 zane still drops trash in it. Seriously, I spend days farming him for his claw, horn, and everything NOT cyber dragon and he gives me a butt 🔥 ton of lizard soldiers.

The game will die if Konami won't do anything cool next box. They really have to stop add 5ds's ace monsters and give a look for other worlds. About 4 months and the meta still like how it was.

That was a test deck (silent magician and spellcaster beatdown) that I used in casual. I'm getting ready for whatever they might do to heroes.
<< Anonymous(Kaiser lover)
Lovely Aster Reply
Agreed. Synchro decks need to get better and we need more of the old favorites. But lately the boxes are just half-baked junk types with the aces thrown in. Same meta. No wonder there is so much antimeta.

Anyone know if or when he will be added to the gate?
