How to unlock Bakura

Obtainable by unlocking him from the Yami Bakura event.


The Fiend Archetype

Although there is plenty of Fiend-type monsters, they do not receive enough support cards to be made into a decent and versatile deck in the current card pool.

Dark Necrofear

You will automatically be able to get your hands on a copy of Dark Necrofear. It is a very strong card with a strong ability that can change the flow of a game. The only drawback is that it should be used in a fiend deck to special summon it as early as possible.

Tether of Defeat

This is a very good skill due to the fact that you can choose whether you want to mill you or your opponent's deck. This skill is versatile as it can be used to mill your opponents deck to win or send cards into your graveyard for specific reasons, e.g. - Dark Necrofear, Shadow Ghoul, Desert Twister.


Note: More skills are expected! Report Skill name and details by submitting comments or screenshot at the bottom of the page.

Yami Bakura has appeared twice in the game. The first was the unlock event when he appeared in the gate as well as the duel world. His next event was duel world appearance only, where he had slightly different rewards than the first event. It is unclear whether he will have all cards as rewards for his next appearance or not.

Fiends, and needle creature. Any way to get ur life to 2000 and dark necrofear into the graveyard. I play RPGs, I treat him like a dark night. Use zoa as ur physical kill card, since necrofear will be dead

Now it would sound silly but I want them to release Ryou too. I know he's not even a duelist but..... you know just add him or something. He's super cute.

I agree. He is one of my favorite characters and has been featured in other previous YGO games before.

I had to look them up but he has been in: Dungeon Dice Monsters (GBA), Destiny Board Traveler (GBA), The Falsebound Kingdom (GC), Capsule Monster Colosseum (PS2), and The Dawn of Destiny (XB). So nothing super recent but in various older titles they did have him as a lower, first-tier duelist.
You'd think Bakura would have the Yami field skill too, since his entire 'thing' is fiend cards.

Man, I really wish he had it. That'd have some real potential.
Once there are better counters to beatdown otks Destiny Board might become viable.
Loool in germany they wrote "tether of defeat" can only be use if u lose 1000hp
