RewardsParadox Brothers and event exclusive rewards
RequirementStage 4 or above

Paradox Brothers: Guardian of the Gate is an event in Duel Links to unlock the Paradox Brothers. It is similar to the other unlockable character events, collect Maze Keys by dueling the duelists that appear in your duel world to duel Paradox Brothers at the gate and get event points to get exclusive rewards.

What makes this event different than the others is the choosing of a door. The Paradox Brothers will sometimes appear in your duel world, asking you which door you want to choose from 2 different doors. One leads to a high level of 50/40 with an added bonus to score, but also comes with a decrease if you lose the duel.

Event flow

1Collect Maze Keys by winning duels against Standard Duelists, Legendary Duelists, and the Vagabond.
2Challenge the Paradox Brothers at the Gate once you obtain required amount of Maze Keys.
3Earn "Points" after duels against Paradox Brothers based on Duel Assessment to unlock them and get exclusive event rewards.

Required Maze Keys and acquired Points

The amount of event points that you get is not the Duel Assessment from dueling against the Paradox Brothers, it is instead a multiplication of that DA score depending on what level you are dueling.

Paradox Brothers level 50

After unlocking level 30 of Paradox Brothers on the gate, they can sometimes spawn in your duel world, asking you which door to choose. The one on the left can be either level 50 or 40, offering a higher score if you are able to win, but decreases your score if you lose. The door on the right offers no bonus.

Anyone remember the name of the trap card he plays when they have a face down labyrinth wall?
When played, it makes all opponents face up defense position monsters go to attack position and also makes them all attack the labyrinth wall.

Based on what you are saying, there are two cards like this...but neither were used by the ParaDox. The 1st would be Amazon Archers Trap that does literally what you said, but the other is Staunch Defender and doesn't have the position change effect (which I could've sworn it used to, in the game at least).
This event has ended now, See you next time papa bros, Nice event and rewards :)

@Anonymous There is no shame in spending money on a game! The game is your hobby & you are spending a few bucks on your hobby. There is nothing wrong with that! In fact, The game needs people to spend money on the game so they can remain in business. They depend on repeat customers! Thousands of people spent money on duel orbs/ boosted duel orbs. Don't let the negative people upset you!

Who cares if he did. I have 170 orbs (which you can't buy) because I hardly need them. I save my level ups for events in case I need more keys to beat it or farm cards.

Just wait the event to come back. Basically, pegasus already has 2 event, so surely they will repeat the same for this paradox bro.
Someone care to explain to me how the paradox brothers I just duled against, instantly summoned three elements to the gate gardian and destroyed me on their first turn!!

The cards in this event suck, but it hardly matters, we got new playable characters with some pretty cool abilities.
I started this game at the end of the Pegasus event and barely got enough points to unlock him, for this event I'm at almost 4mill points, do the extra points or keys get converted into anything after the event ends?

No the keys dont get tranfer into anything so be sure to spend em all! and there is one card that is awesome for bakura DECk: ARCHFIEND PARA... (FIeLD CARD)

Key will convert into gold. If not mistaken 3 gold per key, but for me it is better to spend all the key because you can more gold if you use your key than keep it

The gems and gold drop rate in this event is fairly high, so I don't mind the reward cards suck.
VahnManX uploaded a great video regarding the drop rate of SR event cards. 4:25min and worth to watch for those who agree that the prize card system is broken:

Yeah same here, I got a couple of everything but no dimension gate. There is another C or R card that has a similar effect though you can use.

The only SR that has eluded my grasp is the DNA one, got countless (useless) labyrinth, though <.<
I just won my LAST duel against Paradox Bros, used my last 40 keys, racked up as much points as possible, and as soon it ends they decide to reboot so I can't see my rewards.. Anyone know if ill still get them, or be able to see what I got? Or did I just lose whatever rewards I would've gotten?
