Marik Ishtar

Duel Links Breaking News
New pack: Aerial Assault
update 18/04/2017

Table of contents


Marik Ishtar is a character that's suspected to be coming soon. There are several files found in the game showing a character selection icon, and a player profile icon. Similar to Yugi Muto, he has an alter ego called Yami Marik. His Yami version is more likely to be an unlockable character to avoid having 2 of the same character. Marik Ishtar might make an appearance through a mini event just like the Yugi Muto event.


Based on the anime, Marik Ishtar takes control of other people and use their decks to duel and does not duel himself, unless he is in his Yami Marik form. If he were to appear, he could be bringing other gravekeeper monsters like Gravekeeper's Descendant, similar to Ishizu and Odion's duel rewards.

Seriously? Konami added Honda-kun, but didn't Marik? Why? Why, Konami, WHY?! He's trying to be cool, to be best for you, Konami... Whyyyyyy?

Only chance it seems of him being added now is next anniversary.

I guess he's never going to be released.

2 Years and 3 Worlds later and still no regular Marik, I honestly don't think they have any plans to add him at this point.

I'm pretty confident that they will, it's just that they know he's a fan favorite so they want to space it out to keep people hyped up for new characters. Duke, grandpa Yugi, Marik and others are very popular characters so they probably don't want to release them all at once

So basically, they are treating these characters like hero cards.
I have lost all hope of seeing him in duel links.
Where's Shadi?

I'm pretty sure the only ones included in the game are those we've definitively seen duel.
Lol there are so many references to regular marik (umbra & lumis dialogue and now Solemn Odion) that I'm pretty sure the character will be added sooner or later.

Everyone forgets the mind-controlled duels (Keith, Strings, Joey) on purpose. It doesn't matter how many times it is pointed out. Well, they are "forget" or are a bit slow.

Poor bandit keith, he was all wasted when he was controller. He reminded me of the leader of some bikers called Skull Flames in the 5d's manga. Yusei defeated him too, just like Yugi/Joey defeated keith.

IF he becomes unlockable, it'd probably be from a Battle City finals Chronicle repeat. Emphasis on "if".

It makes sense, all battle city chronicles events ended with his silhouette.

But honestly, they should keep him unreleased, because people are kinda bored of battle city right now.
Please do make him a unlock able character too the game.?

This card has always had a presence in TCG meta, even if it's not an "aMaZiNg" car...
Well, it gets semi-limited now :p
Someone: hey, this box kinda sucks Konami: lets lets dump a couple good generic synchros that do...
