Ishizu unlock missions

Ishizu Ishtar becomes available character by completing unlock missions. She appears in the Gate after you finish a trigger event, then you can have a duel against him and challenge missions to unlock her.

If there is inaccuracy, kindly let us know correct information by submitting comments or screenshots to a thread at the bottom of the page.

Trigger event

Summon LIGHT-Attribute monster(s) 200 time(s) in total

  • It does not count Set, Flip Summon, and Special Summon (unconfirmed).
  • Summoning a Light-Attribute monster in PVP Duels including, Ranked Duels, Casual Duels, and Friend Duels, is counted (unconfirmed).

Let's use Light monsters from the beginning

Here is a list of Light-attribute monsters that are easy to get and available from the early stage of the game. Build a deck that contains those monsters and summon them as much as you can even in the initial phase. See also the following 2 tricks:

  • Do not set, flip summon, or special summon them. It is said that only normal summon is applicable although that is unconfirmed.
  • If your Monster Zone is full with LIGHT monsters, conduct tribute summon. Or switch their battle position to defense, then standard duelists will attack your monster that have low DEF, and you can summon the next one.

How to increase Life Points

Set LP Boost skills to your deck and use cards that regenerate your Life Points to complete one of Ishizu unlock missions, win a Duel against Ishizu with at least 6000 LP remaining. Joey, Tea, and Mai can acquire LP Boost skills by leveling up, and other also can acquire them as drop (duel reward) skill.

Update: she just unlocked for me after I sent a message to the powers that be, so I don't know if they did it for me manually or if something changed. Best of luck!

I unlocked her today while i was im ranked pvp i was'nt even trying to get her. But shes awsome and shes my main chracter now :)
Ok guys,
I was as desprate as some of you are to get this b*tch unlocked. I started with a deck full of light monsters. Did like 300-400 summons. NOTHING happened. Then I read that you have to summon 1 Light Monster 200 times. I switched to a normal beatdown deck with 3 Summoners (search for Guardian) and 1 Guardian (normal light 1650ATK). I did like 15 duels against Standart Duelists summoning the Guardian nearly every time.
Suddenly Ishizu unlocked!
So i can tell that you dont have to summon 1 Light Monster 200 times, at least not the same one, cause i didnt. Also it does not make a difference if you play effect or normal monsters. The only thing i am unsure of is if Tributing counts. In my case i think it didnt, so i ended up having 190 or so summons without tributing included when i switched to the "normal" deck.
This was by far the worst thing to unlock and do in the whole game. So i hope it might help some people.
Maybe she is simply bugged and glitched as hell and you never know when you will unlock her. (also possible)

Most players I knew unlocked her without actually trying to go for it. It was like a gentle breeze passing by through your face, you didn't realize it was already there.

You are able to complete stage missions and character unlocks unless they say (gx) or (dm)

Just unlocked her recently. maybe you think you have summoned that much, but really isnt. You have enough light monsters in deck? I use Yugi with power of dark and Rogue Dolls (Pegasus), Element Magicians, and The Stern Mystic - these monsters are spellcasters and are from light element, didnt take me long to unlock her by using them.
Does it have to be pvp or can it be standard duels? Please help someone who managed to unlock!!:))

standard duels against cpu will definitely count, it's a safe bet compared to pvp.
Does legendary duels at gate counts?
<< Anonymous
dude Reply
I don't think it counts. I unlocked it by doing standard duels.
I'm honestly at my wits end with this character. I've used nothing but a light monster deck on low level legendary characters in the gate. Normal/tribute summoned over 300 monsters, spent well over 500 gate keys and even went from level 27-30 on Mako trying to unlock her so I can move on to the next stage.

Finally unlocked her. I started at just around 2500 normal summons, and ended at over 3000. It's a possibility that tribute summons don't count? As other than that, I was purely normal summoning 4 star light cards.
This shit is glitched. over 200 summons and no unlock mission and im on stage 35

I got it just fine, make sure you're normal summoning them and not face down though
