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 Brother's
Required Maze Keys (QTY)Acquired Points
105DA x1
2010DA x2.5
3020DA x7
4040DA x18
50-DA x20
Note: DA = Duel Assessment

Door Challenge

Paradox Brothers may spawn outside the gate, duelists may challenge them as they bring new challenges not just by having a LVL 50, but also challenges like "Smaller Monster Zone", "Smaller Trap/Spell Zone" "No Monster Effect Activation", etc, offering a higher score or duel assessment upon winning, but it can also decrease your score if you lose.

Event exclusive skill

At level 20, he will start the duel with Shadow Ghoul on the field.

At level 30, he will start the duel with Labyrinth Tank on the field.

At level 40, he will start the duel with Labyrinth Wall on the field.

Hot New Top
Well, now I can see that what people really like is to COMPLAIN:

- Muto's event: Meehhh, awful spawning rate, shitty drops, I want 7 Gandoras, 11 Valkyrions, 15 UA!

- Paradox Brothes' Event (wich will bring us more free direct and indirect gems): Meh, they dueled only twice in the anime, shitty cards, I want Marik, Yami Marik, blablabla.

I bet when Marik's event show up: Meh, shitty event, I wanted to duel every rare hunter, shitty drops, shitty rewards, I want Winged Dragon of Ra, blablabla.

Please, just enjoy the game or stop playing.

Noah could make an interesting event and character since he only exists is virtual realm. He also has spirit monsters, and most of his spirit monsters are already in the game. Rafael would be even better.

But most Alister,Valon and Dartz card never really make into a real card
A question about gate guardian: when you have sanga , kazejin , suijin on the field why should you tribute them to summon gate guardian !!!?i know that has a high power but no effect ...
<< Anonymous(ali.v)

One reason you might want guardian is because the opponent has the chance to win off deck drain. For example they play a blue eyes but keep it in attack mode and dont attack. The kazejin,suijin and sanga effect is now useless creating a potential stalemate. FIrst one to run out of cards wins.

The games biggest mistake wasn't the release of the Paradox Brothers.

It was the release of Odion & Ishizu Ishtar.

The game should have followed the anime characters as they appeared on the TV Series.

They should have released the characters as they appeared in the anime.

Odion & Ishizu should have been Bones & Panik.

The release of the Paradox Brothers would have than followed the same time frame as the Anime Time Frame.

The problem is the game released Odion & Ishizu which never appeared in the season 1 Anime.

They appeared in the season 2 Anime.
People are expecting Marik because the game has set the time frame as season 2.

The release of the Paradox Brothers now seems absurd to people because they are going backwards to season 1 instead of continuing down season 2.

I love the Paradox Brothers.
I love the duel in the anime with Panik.
I love the duel in the anime with Bones.

However, I completely understand why people are upset.

The game should have never skipped over them to begin with.

It's all about game plans. Paradox Brothers are released for tag team duel plan.

and do not overrated Paradox Brothers. They're not that great. Like another characters, they all have both advantages and disadvantages.

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.

I know newer players are constantly coming to the game but for an older player like me these events are getting really boring. I have an idea - Konami should start releasing more often all the characters from the original anime they want as playable, then at the end of the year(or why not sooner) have a HUGE event, where players can unlock all the characters they don't have. Then start fresh - with GX or whatever they want, just stop repeating these events every month. I guess it would be difficult, to design more characters with skills which don't brake the game(like 3SD) but it's bad that a game like Yu-Gi-Oh, with so many cards and possibilities, gets stale and boring so quickly.

lol so you're telling me you dont think the events in this game are insanely repetitive? they are literally all the same event, just reskined. the only differences between events in this game is whether or not they appear at the gate or spawn randomly. a game being free to play doesnt suddenly mean every decision they ever make is perfect lol. you should shut up because i dont agree with you!!! XD

so how is asking for any kind of diversity at all asking for too much? is it my fault that im getting bored of reskined events that have been going on since the release of the game, almost a year ago? good games dont just repeat the same event constantly, they actually try different things over time. i dont get how you can try to act like this game isnt lazily made lmao.

Well, I've been 6 months on the game but due to satanic RNG, I could not get any SR besides 17 Labyrinth Walls from consistent 8k assessments from this event before. This is a very welcome event for old players, usable farming cards and free gems are always welcome.
hi does Cerberus deck work with or some other deck to farm them

It's definately foreshadowing something. Either a larget standard field, or additional Extra Deck summon types.

I think so but larger field with swarm of red-eyes is a bit ..meh. And also changing field image, handling code of larger field/special kind of summon (location/mechanic/etc) need a lot of work why they don't give a card at that time instead. Seem to be troll for now anyway lol
