update 21/12/2017


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.

Yami Bakura unlock event

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.


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

Is a bakura slifer deck viable? If so, an example deck would be extremely helpful. Keep in mind i have some og pack cards and a shit ton of electric rising pack cards but very little aanything else

Sorry another question I am still dueling Bakura at the gate I go first play my cards then on turn 3 I can't draw a card this has happened more times than it doesn't also if I go 2nd I am supposed to be able to draw and can't. how the hell am I supposed to win when I lose my first draw. I contacted konami twice but no reply I guess they are too busy helping other people. So any help would be much obliged. Thanks Sal.

I don't have so many cards and Aroma cards you could get from the trader so that is the deck I'm trying to use and it said to use restart still it's hard to get 6-7000 with the cards

It was one of the most used skill the last fe months (and more). To keep the game more balanced, Konami made it less appealing by adding a condition like giving up the draw next turn.
You could still farm with aromages by using LP boost Alpha. For Example:

Again thank you very much for the reply I will try to use life points boost thanks. I can't believe Konami just destroyed the skill I'd be willing to bet nobody uses it now with the condition anyways thank you.

I'm trying to get dark necrofear and have beaten him many times at lv 40 how many times do you have to win before you get dark necrofear from him?

The correct answer is : until you get lucky...

Number of times you duel, win or lose, doesn't affect the drop rewards.

You can be really lucky; like lose against Bakura Level 10, still get Necrofear


really unlucky, keep winning with duel assessment over 8K, but still don't get the rewards you want.

Doesn't matter, just vs legendary duellists or play Casual/Ranked duels with him without surrendering. (Bakura main player)
Why is Bakura the only character that doesn't gives out 50 gems when we level it up to 30?
<< Anonymous(Anonymous)

Because he is evil and does not want people to have the gems. Just kidding. I don't know. I think I have seen this with some of the other event characters, too. Probably laziness on Konami's part.
one of his unlock missions is to "use level 3 or lower monster cards 3 times in a duel against him" i have already summoned 3 different level 3 monsters in a few duels but still failed. what is it supposed to mean?

Legendary duellists and/or casual/ranked duels
I think I've seen some Bakuras with Restart. Is this character able to get it?

If I duel him at le 10 dose he drop necrofear card reward or only if I duel him at higher lvls

He can, but the chance is far lower.

Level 40 is the best, which is why people are farming the Level 40 one, not the Level 10 one.
Should I be worried?
Finally I got this skill !!
