Block AttackBlock Attack----


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

Yes, I would love Gagagigo the Risen.
Idiots! They have a lot of interesting chars to bring to duel links and they choose this moron...

Well, probably most of the cards we will get from him will be trash, so I don't even know why people are so eager to have him in the game. They could add other chars period even though Tristan is a main character or not.

Okay, now that I turned on the game, I see that he actually is here on the 31st. But holy crap, he is everywhere! LMAO I am kind of disappointed that we can't duel him, though. With the way he yells, it looks like I'm just mugging him for gold.

Noah, zigfried, dartz, etc. are all from glorified filler arcs, and most of their cards either don’t exist in real life or are already in duel links. They’re almost certainly never going to be added.
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.
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

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

If any character deserves a spot in Duel Links, it sure isn't Goza-bastard-buro. I have no idea why anyone would want him as a playable character. Noa on the other hand would be a wise choice. Unlike Gozaburo, he's actually dueled a time or two and knows what he's doing.

Gozaburo is in the shadow realm.
He can't fight anymore because Seto kicked his 🔥 very badly.

Any idea of who is his Ace Card?
<< Anonymous(Kikaio)

His UR drop is Panther Warrior, but not only he doesn't play the card, he also never use it in both anime and manga, or any other game.

Super Roboyarou on the other hand, was his Deck Master in the Virtual World arc of the anime.

But then there's also the strange case of Gagagigo being special for Tristan when again, he never use the card in both anime and manga, or any other game.....

You're wrong on the Gagagigo point. It was the ONLY monster he ever used in the manga. (He never dueled in the manga, but he did use it as a spirit in the memory arc.)

As for Panther Warrior... I'm not at all surprised Super Roboyarou wasn't Ultra. It's not an especially strong card, and the fact Super Robolady also exists made it far less likely. My guess is that his "signature card" will be Command Knight if he's ever available. As for Panther Warrior... Not too surprised he got a Joey card as a drop, but I do wonder why they chose Panther Warrior over Unity.

To be fair, I forgot anyone else besides Joey used a spirit in the memory arc XD

All I remember was Joey using REBD, which is notable because the physical card is most likely still with Yugi at that time, as there's no way Joey can win that duel against Yugi.

It is extremely broken both in TCG and in duel links
or how the heck is that pic still used for this article when there are much better pics available...
^ Agree. A good start to fix Union (without that busted Union Carrier link that should be banned...
the difference you're talking about is completely irrelevant in duel
