Description in the game

As a Dark Signer, Kalin has the Mark of the Giant. In "happier" times, Kalin teamed up with Yusei and Jack to form the Enforcers - the most powerful Dueling team in the Satellite. When he was captured by Sector Security, he mistakenly blamed Yusei for his imprisonment. With his zero-card handless combo, Kalin used "Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu" to punish Yusei for his misdeeds

I think the sprite of Dark Signers is already made, but I just hope they give Kiryu an Evil and Twisted looking one just like in this pic.

There's no such thing as "hidden so deep in the game files that no one can find it".

Putting one data separate from all the same kind of data is just terrible game development.

If a character image is not in where all the other character images are stored, then it's not anywhere in the game file. They simply have not put the data in yet.

They simply don't want to spoil future releases anymore, and they might be also keeping the game 'light' in terms of disk space.

I think the dude wasn't asking who had such appearance, but why instead.
Hats off to this guy, one of the absolute best Yu-Gi-Oh! characters I’ve ever seen.
Way better than Bakura who seems to be possessed during the whole show while being a villain, never acting through his own will, better than Yubel who seems to have some... 🔥 vibe around, better than Sartorius who is always hiding behind his twisted and goofy cult he created after (again) being possessed by an external entity.
Last but not least, far better than Kaiba (despite the fact I don’t consider this guy a villain) because Kaiba focus his whole life on another person; which is very ironic, someone who is supposed to be full of confidence an arrogance, is always thinking about defeating another guy: “I need to defeat this other person, I need to be better than him, I need to have better cards, I need to demonstrate in front of everyone I’m the real winner, the real champion”, how do you call that? pretty much the embodiment of insecurity.

Kalin or Kyosuke Kiryu (Jap version) is completely the opposite; it doesn’t matter if he doesn’t have a penny in his pocket, it doesn’t matter if he is outnumbered or if he is all alone, HE WILL STILL ATTACK, that’s a given and he doesn’t care if no one supports him. Kaiba couldn’t fight his stepfather as a child, Kaiba couldn’t fight anyone while having no cash at all. Kalin, on the other hand, he is a living hand grenade. But on the top of that, HE WAS MATURE ENOUGH TO CHANGE. The spirit inside the Millennium Ring can’t do it, too much ego, too much stupid hatred and sadly, the same thing happens with Kaiba or Darkness (GX)

Arc-V had Sergei who inflicted self harm on himself to best enjoy duels though none of his cards have been printed. Zexal had Vector who is a vicious troll and Quattro who was a very sadistic duelist who used the creepy gimmick puppets.

What happened to this dude, why does he have the eyes of Kid Buu? I thought he was put in jail, but he looks like he was transformed into a supernatural being or something alike

To be a Dark Signer you must die and become a zombie, Kalin Kesller starved to death in prison.
<< Anonymous
:'-) Reply
Worst prison ever then, there are laws that do not allow the police to 🔥 prisoners nor make them suffer starvation to death.

That aside, I didn't know Kalin was a Zombie (at least as a Dark Signer) kinda poetic, because he dueled Yusei while being an apparition? I guess he was dead already in the time both dueled. Sad story.

Kalin thought yusei betrayed and was put in jail
He has beaten up and wasnt given food
Then the earthbound immortals offered him to take revenge on yusei so he gave up his life and reborn a dark signer
I place my bet we’re getting the worse Infernity cards, or even worse 2 Infernity cards and a bunch of one off cards he used for his roaming event in May. Just like how Jack Altas dropped golem pieces in his roaming event

so i heard Kalin will be an roaming duelist (untill they add him to the gate if they do), that means we getting 4 to 5 new cards (as with other roaming events till now). One of them might be the earthbound immortal, meaning there wont be much infernity cards in this event ...

Don’t think so, I’ll think we will get:

Garbage rewards in this roaming,
Decent cards in his first unlock event with Infernity archfiend and hundred eyes dragon locked behind a skill and later released as box URs,
Earthbound immortal given to us in his second unlock event, similar to how marik dropped Ra in later events

Decent cards? Did jack even drop anything worthy in his roaming and two unlock events? At least hassleberry gave us survivals end, jack gave us nothing. I’m not sure if Kalin is going to give us anything good.

I based my prediction list on Jack's first event, which was also a roaming event.

I highly doubt we'll get any Earthbound Immortal stuff aside from maybe Ccapac Apu (hey, spelled it right first try!) itself. Also, the event summary itself specifically mentions Infernity cards, meaning they're likely the focus. It also doesn't mention Ccapac Apu at all, so I doubt it will be obtainable.

You need to do an assisted Duel. When you get +320000 damage points acquired. Then you unlock him
Man, Kiryu Kyosuke turned into Kalin, damn, such a weird and boring name, hope someday I can use the original names even playing in another language

They must use the name "Yusei", they want every single Yugioh protagonist to keep their "Yu" across different regions.

Even Judai keeps his last name ("Yuki") outside Japan, since that's where his "Yu" is.

And Kiryu Kyosuke is not a cringy as 🔥 name? Might as well call him Stud Eagleman.

He has "ryu" (dragon) in his name, so yes, not cringy at all. It's a cool name.

Heck there's actually a monster with the name "Kiryu" in Yugioh, it's just not in DL yet.

What if we ask for a 5ds story in the future? Maybe the battle of the dragon signers (Yusei, Jack, Akiza, Luna and Leo, and Crow) against dark signers (Roman Goodwin, Carly, Devack, Misty, Kalin, Greiger and Rex Goodwin)

If you are talking about duelist chronicles... they recently recycled DM's Battle City finals arc BUT before that they had GX's Society of Light arc. If i may, im guessing they will at least complete the GX stories first, i should imagine one last one i.e. with the Duel Monster worlds, before they move on to 5Ds stories
His redemption story in the Wild West was really cool! Some of the best yugioh episodes I've seen!

They kinda have to, considering Infernity Death Gunman outright point (and implied to shoot) a gun right to Lotten's head.

It's just a solid vision, but still....

Oh, and I always thought the guys DIED dramatically after losing a duel with Yusei.
yo this guy has a monster that allows you to reduce your LP completely to 0 and still not lose the duel (i don't remember infernity monster)

I doubt we'll get it on his first event, though

not really, since Infernity Zero states you can only take damage 3 times before you actually lose the duel.

Not to mention that it only works if lp was dropped to 0 by effect damage
