Bonz appeared as one of the antagonists in the original series of Yu-Gi-Oh! First seen in Duelist Kingdom tournament as one of Bandit Keith's servants. Bandit Keith just used him to extract his revenge against Pegasus. Later in the series, he was seen in a cemetery before the Battle City finals. He's tricking people to gain their cards.
Call of the Haunted
His deck mainly consist's Zombie type monsters. Utilized by Pumpking the King of Ghost, which increases the attack of his Zombie type monsters and his rarest card Call of the Haunted, which lets him revive his monsters in the graveyard as Zombie types. These cards have different effects compared to the OCG/TCG.
I am 99% sure it is not going to be this guy and that it will be ARKANA. The reason is that he HAD BEEN playble for limitied time in a specific place.So the data in the game is allready INN. And they never even said anything about Bonz... I mean he is just a character who played 1 or 2 duels in the whole seires ( Like arkana did ) But arkana has game data for allready existed character IN GAME. Its my personal opinion but i think it is going to be arkana.
I had assumed he was a NPC event duelist. But seeing him listed here makes it look like he is playable. So, if he really is just mind-controlled Joey, then what is the point of that? It's just Marik dueling in someone else's body.
I can sort of understand why you think that the two Mariks are not that different, since Yami Marik is probably his personality disorder, so they are linked. But the Yugis and Bakuras are completely different people. Marik did reform eventually, though. Yami Marik never would have done that, despite what a lot of fanfiction writers seem to like to believe.
I get what you are saying. We should have the original duelists who recurred a bit like Bonz did and/or had important themes. Wouldn't be surprised if Espa is next. But Marik is hot, and I can't help wanting him!
If he can give us a free Mystic Plasma Zone and other dark support, then I am willing to welcome that ugly lipstick wearing freak aka Panik.

Oozy imagine the animation if his signature IS Pumpking...
Graveyard at night, some creepy fog starts to roll in and the ground trembles then BOOM BOOM BOOM! Vines start shooting upward from underground then slam back down onto the surface, then up rises Pumpking with bits of dirt falling off
Yes I'm aware pumpkins don't grow underground, but I think all this would be AWESOME
For those crying about why Bonz will be the character for the October event: Its because...oh I dunno... HALLOWEEN MAYBE????
The whiney children always crying on this site and that play this game have made me change my views and I'm now a supporter of eugenics.
Bonz is a cool duelist. People should just stfu bc you won't like everyone added but if you level them it is gems and coins. They could give us no new characters. Be grateful for fucks sake. It does not matter if they are good or if they dueled a lot. We don't even have to have seen them duel. Many of these characters who were established as a duelist have been in Konami games.
Jean-Claude Magnum is a good examole. He is the number one most forgotten character in the first series and he has been in two Yugioh games as a duekist. Tristian dueled a lot but he was a closet duelist and did not want to duel in front of people. If the lerson is canon to have a deck and be a duelist then theycan be added reguardless if we. Like it or not. I do not get why people care so much.

I don't think it'll be an unlockable character. It doesn't say anywhere that it's a new unlockable character coming to Duel Links.
I disagree. If it said duel him for treats or something like that then I might believe it. I feel in an effort to keep it short yet word it to imply he is tied into the overall Halloween theme and likely will represent the holiday season for Duel Links similar to the way the main NPC of a holiday event hosts said event in other online games, they likely didn't use the word obtainable.
Obviously they could simply not have him unlockable, but they xould have made it more obvious by adding a line of text telling you to duel him for trick or treats. They did not but rather hinted at and implied his holiday tie in. That changed the sentence structure and I believe they fekt it was extra to add, "and he will be obtainable." Usually we are told to duel for rewards or something similar

Why yall think about Bonz/Arkana. What about Yugi's other teammate, Tristan Taylor?
I mean, he's really kind of forgettable. He doesn't have a real deck, we just know he likes the Cyber Commander, a lvl 2 normal DARK Machine monster with 750 attack. Not much else to say. It would be nice to see him, but I don't think he'd be that good as a playable character.

Oh man...Call of the Haunted UR as his signature card?
Regardless of his weak effect, I've always found Pumpking to actually have some rather intimidating artwork, as Yugioh cards go. I mean, it's a giant pumpkin that can grab you with its vines and eat you. Besides, Vampire Lord got an animation too, and he isn't even a signature card.
