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 2 separate events. The first is the unlock event, where he appears in the gate as well as the duel world. The other event is 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.

Is it possible to get trap cards from marik like jam defending, wheel of nightmare etc when facing duelist lvl 40?
Anonymous 18days ago
So I just got Fiend Farewell and Destiny Board back-to-back against Yami Yugi lvl 30 and Rex lvl 40 and I started leveling up Bakura last week. And yet that damn Last Gamble after months of farming is nowhere in sight.

You just need to get lucky honestly just use bakura to vs any lv40 legendary duelist you can get a lot points on for higher chances

Sadly I didn't have had installed the game when the Bakura event was around. I want to unlock his character so badly or at least to duel with him. I hope there is a stage or another event to offer me a chance to encounter him.

Don't worry, events always come back, you will have the chance to unlock him in the future! For now, try to unlock Marik and, at the end and middle of this month the Paradox Borthers and the new mysterious Legendary duelist!

I'm sure he will return. The Paradox Brothers did.
I'm loving tether of defeat with vampire lord/lady, get to really fuck up someone's deck when you destroy a monster or do damage or both. Can be sending 2 of your opponents cards to the grave a turn works amazing

We are expecting him in late December,or 2018
I need his destiny board skill lol. Use mirror wall then berries to get your health points back up and use wander balloons to send Necrofear to the graveyard. A lot easier now since we have 2 of them. then have a lot of security orbs and other monsters along thoughs lines.
How do you get lvl 50
