Gate Key

Needed to See Legend Duelits

Players can have a duel against legend duelists, such as Yami Yugi and Kaiba Seto, by visiting the Gate in Duel World and using required gate keys. Gate keys are required per duel.

Required Keys by Character

Players need both the neutral gate keys and the colored keys. Required color is different by character.

Gate key / corresponding legend duelists
Black Gate Key
White Gate Key
Red Gate Key
Blue Gate Key
Yellow Gate Key
Green Gate Key
Neutral Gate Key
  • All legend duelists

Required Quantity

The number of keys to meet duelists is based on their level. Players have to use the more number of keys as the duelist's level is higher.

How to Get

Duel reward

Players can obtain gate keys as rewards for winning duels. Having duels against standard duelists will be the main way to collect the items. Standard duelists take 30 minutes to reappear after defeated, and players can get them to show up immediately by using the Duel Orb.

Weekly/Stage Missions

Gate keys are also rewards for completing weekly and stage missions.


Players can gain the items by defeating other players, although they will be stronger than standard duelists.

Card Trader

You can also convert no-colored gate key into the colored one by meeting Card Trader. However this way is undesirable relative to other ways noted above, since so many neutral gate keys are required to have a duel against legend duelists.

Me to bro this Game is fuckn broken
At what stage does Yami Yugi become available in gate? Currently I'm stage 25 and have a mission to defeat him for times to advance to 26. I'm gold 1 in rank and PvP will literally take forever to complete the mission..

Lol u surely using yugi as ur character, u need to change ur character other than yugi
Anyone knows how to get a specific color gate key? I mean, without trading with the Card Trader.

I need specificly the blue one, but I can't get any of them from the NPCs on Duel World. I already have tons of the others, but don't receive (in prizes) the specific color I need.

I don't think there's another way to get a specific color key. You just need to farm AIs and make it 4k assessment and above if u can.
I hope we can convert the neutral keys to colored keys as many as we want, instead of just 10 in at least 12 hours... Come on why the hell do we need 10??? it costs 56 to use for once

Cause your name is anoymous and you only need 5 keys, sillybilly
I click on the gate and I just get the back drop but can't interact or go back. I have to quit the game. Anyone else have this problem?
is there a method to obtaining specific colored keys? For example, is there a way to increase likelihood that I receive black keys? If I play as Yugi or Odion, does that increase the chance of me receiving a black key?
Is the number of gate keys as prize increasing with a higher player stage?

You can hold 9999, and after that they put the gate keys in the gift box for you. You have a month to claim them. So basically you wont lose gate keys unless you max them out, and keep farming only SD for a full month. Personally, I saved them in the gift box until i got to stage 27, and then started using gate keys to farm LD 40. Don't bother farming LD30 and under.
White gate key is for Seto only and Yellow is for Ishizu and Rex
