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.

destiny board just started today
All of Yami Bakura's skills have potential to be a very very good deck with dark necrofear, doomsday horror, veil of darkness, skull lair, chaos zone and of course, a lot of fiend monsters.. 3 kuriboh will be the combo more faster.. you have a lot of annoying combos.. dark necrofear banish 3 fiend monsters, it will be great to doomsday horror.. the veil of darkness will send a lot of fiend monsters to the graveyard.. the skull lair will destroy a lot of your opponent monsters, and in the same play, it will banish a lot of monsters.. giving chaos zone counters and more power to doomsday horror... if you banish dark necrofear, you can summon with chaos zone with some counters.. and you know what? if doomsday horror, for a reason, is destroyed, all the banished monsters GO BACK TO THE GRAVEYARD.. you know what it means? repeat the same combo with skull liar and the chaos zone hahahahahaha.. i'm testing this, it works VERY well

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.
Does anyone else also get a server error when trying to PvP with Bakura?
