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.

Can u open the app? If not then there's nothing much u can do. If you can u should set up ur konami data transfer account. Make sure u remember the details. Then uninstall ur ygodl. Reinstalling the app: Download a good vpn client. Open the app and connect to a country which has ygodl (default usa). Then delete playstore data. Try open playstore and see if anything changed. If u follow..

.. the steps above properly u should be able to dl the official ygodl from playstore. After u dl the app just use the button "data transfer" and you're set to go. Btw guise i need help i cant buy packs using my debut card (ygo also isnt available in my country)
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 ...

Imo PvP is gonna be a hard counter to get rid of him on turn 1-3, if used correctly. pve it has lots of potential to open up new farming methods due to an awesome tanker on turn 1.
<< 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.

no, level 57 std duelists such as equip and destroy or Insect fortress etc can easily wipe your 500LP in 1 turn .. especially Equip and Destroy deck..Gearfried + Black Pendant

Don't use paradox bros frequently during this event. They spawn for me every hour
So tbh The Brothers probably came in to make gate guardian not completely useless. It was nearly impossible to bring out before but now you could actually use it. Gate Guardian is close to useless anyways but being a 3750 beater second only to blue eyes ultimate, it may see some play other then against lvl 10 duelist cause there probably the only way you were going to summon him before

You could use a toon deck like I do I beat them lv 50
6000+ points, easy to customize, 100% win rate so far!
Check it out:
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.

Joey hasnt really dropped me anything ... (1 graceful) Oh well ... Paradox event done with in the day (3 of all sr's.) Seriously people ... its just like a starting hand ... just luck ...
For level 30 just use a deck that's good at getting strong monsters really fast to get over his labyrinth tanks. I used Gemini Fusion but kaibaman/red eyes/ should work well. Don't bother trying to farm level 30, level 40 is much easier.
