Syrus Truesdale is a main character from the YuGiOh GX series. He is the brother of Zane Truesdale and similarly uses a machine themed deck. Throughout the series we can see his ranking in Duel Academy rise, as he goes from the Slifer Red dorm to Ra Yellow and finally to the Obelisk Blue Dorm, all the while remaining as one of Jaden's closest friends.

How to Unlock



Syrus uses a Vehicroid deck, consisting of Machine-type monsters that are based on Vehicles. Although the effects of these monsters vary and there is no coherent strategy among them, they are able to support each other and fusion summon into bigger more powerful Vehicroids.

Sorry for asking what is probably a dumb question but what is his signature card for Duel Links? I wanted to see the animation for the summon but I was distracted when I unlocked him. I never saw which card is his signature and it is not written in his biography.

I have summoned all kinds of roid monsters with him but have yet to find his signature card.

Super Vehicroid Jumbo Drill (the only 1 copy available atm). His starter deck also contains 1 of each roid needed for the fusion, so you don't have to worry about getting those as drops from him!

It's Jumbo Drill, but he may have special dialogue for Cyberdark since it becomes his card in Season 4

He may have special dialogue for Cyber End Dragon too, he takes all the Cyber cards in Season 4

Is there a specific Duelist that I have to go against using Syrus to get the Training Wheels skill? I am asking this because I noticed that when dueling with a certain character against another certain character, you are granted a skill. Example when i duel a Joey Wheeler player using Bandit Keith, I got the Baggy Sleeves skill for him.

You could do 3 of those in one duel, the Thunder Giant, Using a Spell/Trap 3 times, and win 1 duel against level 30 Syrus. And farm level 10 Paradox brothers for the comeback and 3 wins with a BS Machine deck
How do you get a comeback victory against paradox bros with jaden to unlock Syrus? I can’t find them do you need to unlock them?

You need to unlock them in DM before you can duel them in GX

You just need to have lower life points than the paradox brothers (it could just be 50 lp nothing drastic) and you have to make sure to finish them off in that turn that you have lower lp.
In which phase i unlocky him at the gate?
Syrus is my most favourite character
How so you unlock him now that he is at the gate!

I dont know if the ability has changed, but Check out my ride! says that you draw a roid monster of your choice, not randomly. Which makes Fusion Reserves- roids pointless.

With 'Check out my Ride!', you give up your normal draw to get a Roid monster of your choice.

But with 'Fusion Reserves - Roids', you keep your normal draw while still getting a Roid monster of your choice.
Sirius always attempts to save mechanical draco from his own self-destruction.
I just got him in the unlock event and thank god he was one of my favorite characters in GX I am grinding to get his skill at 9200 points
We get a New card if we win a duel.. hm

Power bond?
Limiter removal?
