The vagabond is neither a standard duelist nor a legend duelist. He is a man of few words and looks the player character in the other Yu-Gi-Oh game, the Tag Force series.
Where to find
The character appears in Duel World randomly. Have a duel against him when you find him fortunately.
Great amount of EXP
By winning a duel against the vagabond, Players can gain EXP by about three times the amount usually gained.
Since players can gain a lot of EXP by winning a duel, the vagabond does not show up often. Additionally, players are assigned challenges during a duel. For details of conditions, see the list below.
List of Challenges

Starting a Duel with 3 Monster Cards on the Vagabond's field
Starting Hand Reduction
Use versatile cards to win a duel with the challenge. Combos and summons, such as fusion summon and ritual summon, is not easy to use in a duel with less hand.
Spell/Trap Zone Reduction
Build a deck with less spell/trap cards, and fight with mainly monster cards.
Negate Monster Effects
Only your monster card's effects are negated on the field, in the hand, and in the graveyard. Monster cards with low lever, high ATK, and negative effect, such as Nuvia the Wicked and Giant Orc, will work well,
Starting with set 3 Spell/Trap
The degree of difficulty of the challenge depends on what cards are set on the vagabond's field/spell zones.
Starting with 3 Monsters
Maybe the most difficult challenge. The 3 monster cards on the vagabond's field are randomly selected. That means high level monster can be there. You may want to use cards increasing your monsters' ATK, such as Riryoku and Metalmorph。

Each time he comes with the 1000lp challenge, I always lose by his second or third round. By the same strategy, with his cards coming in the same order. I feel like his deck is hand-built so he never loses with the 1000lp challenge. It's a bit disheartening. Any suggestions or tips to win against this.
He will say BEFORE the duel, who sent him (introduced him) to you.

Is it just me or the Vagabond suddenly became a joke? Since yesterday, he plays like a lvl 10 duelist and I keep beating him with no difficulty, even with the 1-card challenge! (not complaining, but he was such a challenging bad*ss it feels weird!)
He takes a deck from a random player, so yes, there's indeed a good chance for him to have a crappy deck.
Same thing with the daily challenge: really funny, giving someone who's facing lvl 45 AI a starter Yugi/Kaiba deck... >_<

people say it is better to pick the "1 card" restriction for friends since it provides the highest exp even you lose. Is that true? and any other alternative is also good with the EXP?
Yeah... For those who dont know Red, read Pokémon manga
I had Big Shield Gardna with the "Negate Monster Effects" challenge but his effect worked like normal and he switched to attack position after an attack. Is it because I got Gardna through the "Conscription" trap?
Then, some one should remove Giant Orc's effect being negated, because its activation is similar to Big Shield Gardna's. Their effects activate automatically. Also The Unfriendly Amazon requires a tribute despite the effect negation.

"Negate Monster Effects" means an effect you activate by tapping the monster during the main phase (ex. Barrel Dragon)
