While duelling as himself he uses a mixed deck with monsters displaying weapons or military-themed designs. His ace monster is Super Roboyarou which really doesnt do much and lacks power. Although he does have Sengenjin, which is a much better monster.

While possessed by the Big Five he used a deck which is a mix of cards used by the Big Five, with their combined ace monster Five-Headed Dragon

This is stupid. Espa Roba or Duke Devlin would be a better unlockable. Especially Duke with his dungeon dice monsters like ogorth the tormentor and strike ninja. But Tristan? Out of all his duels in the series I think swamp or lava battlegaurd was his strongest monster. Lol

Slight correction, it's "Orgoth the Relentless".

Yep. He tried relenting one time, but it turns out he can't do it. He is relentless.

Tristan is funny, and I like having all of Yugi's friendship group in the game, but I'm not going to use him to duel with.

....there's nothing interesting about that
Tristan is most likely our last, or second last DM character, depending on whether they will give us one more character or not.

There's just not enough space anymore for the "dots" in the Gate for DM characters, at most it can only contain 2 more "dots". Tristan will occupy one of them since he's not in the Gate yet, so there's only 1 space left. Whether that 1 space will be used or not, we still don't know.

Yeah except there's no space either for that. After Tristan and Lumis-Umbra are in the Gate, even if they put the "dots" closer together there's still not enough space for another one.

I didn't see any dots and you won't even post a f**king screenshot. So they can do whatever they want.

Way back yonder there was som files people discovered that had Marik(good) and Grandpa Moto as future Duelists so if what you say is true they could be the last 2.
I thought the character sucked, but now I see he gets Freed and Crusader which are possibly sleeper cards.
So Tristan does suck, but his rewards might become meta in the future.
LVL 40 Tristen and still no skill drops, Konami, please fix this. It is unfair that I been bussing my behind farming him, and it feels like it has been worthless now. Thank you.

So does he have any animation or not?

When was this?
They should’ve just added the big five in Tristan’s body as a playable character. Their skills could be variations of their deck master skills

I'd be down for a Tristan event where the Big Five took over. Especially if Tristan gained a Five-Headed Dragon animation out of it.
Can we have his event back again
Has anyone played 100 duels with him yet?

Probably no new monster sleeves/mat. I got him almost at Lv31 and still nothing. I usually get them at around Lv25, at most Lv27 for the other characters.

Well, he has no ace, of course he has no monster sleeve/mat.

Yes, just listen to your credit card and make some purchases. Whatever you buy you cannot go wrong.
So bad it's too late for red-eyes darkness dragon, it won't see play. My favorite card...
Then let me tell you that the real life card game, the TCG/OCG version of Yugioh, uses 5 zones in...
