Abbreviated Story Mode Guide =============================== This is a bare, efficient guide to story mode. It starts with a chapter-by- chapter objective list, then provides checklists for exploring and unlockables. Notation: @ means required, + means note or optional ======== 1.0 Tips ======== -Save early, save often. You'll usually have to restart from your last save if you lose an important duel. You aren't forced into many duels, so run away and save at a nearby save point if there's an important duel about to start. -The fortune tellers in the shop tell you where to go next. This can be useful if you get lost, which you shouldn't if you're using this guide. When you start a New Game for the first time, you choose your name, country, gender, and character's appearance. Name, country, and gender cannot be changed. Appearance can be changed, although face can't be changed until beating story mode and the change is random. Hair style and color can be changed from the Options menu. Additionally, if you want to save yourself a lot of trouble, go into the "Options" menu, select "Duel Settings" at the bottom, and change "Display Card Details" to "OFF". I can only describe how annoying this feature is: it interrupts the duel and requires you to press A every single time your opponent plays a card. "Do you want to finish checking cards?" Yes, please. ===================== 1.1 Basic Walkthrough ===================== This is a procedural list of what's required to complete Story Mode. The AI isn't particularly difficult, but you may have to play around until you find something that works (or until you get lucky). I was able to complete story mode using just the starting cards and the cards from four structure decks: Zombie World, The Dark Emperor, Spellcaster's Judgment, and Zombie Madness. This section doesn't list the items you could potentially find during story mode. See the Unlockables Section 2.1.b of this guide if you're curious. Note that many of these items can't be found until you've beaten the game. =============== 1.1.a Chapter 1 =============== Chapter 1: Awakening - Arcadia Movement +I recommend going into the "Options" menu and turning OFF "Display Card Details" via "Duel Settings". You won't get those annoying pop-ups this way. @Duel Okita. @Talk to Liquid to warp to New Domino City. @Walk up to the Fortune Cup's front gate and talk to the guard to learn that you can't enter. @Talk to Liquid and Okita to initiate a block puzzle. @Go to the waiting room inside the Fortune Cup building. @Duel Tashiro.

Win with three different structure decks and solve three puzzles. +Pack unlocked: Structure decks (cycles through the ones you've won with; changes after every 10 duels). These are guaranteed to give you many good cards, so be sure to buy them regularly. I recommend winning with these four decks: Zombie Madness, Spellcaster's Judgment, The Dark Emperor, and Zombie World. They give the best variety of cards for building a good budget deck later in the game. @Return to your room. Duel Akiza. It doesn't matter whether you win or lose. @Go south and enter New Domino City. Head east and talk to Kawasaki to practice riding the Duel Runner. Clear the race. =============== 1.1.b Chapter 2 =============== Chapter 2: Blast from the Past - Old Memories, a Team's Bond @Change into the security uniform from the options menu. Talk to Crow. @Go up and into the security building. Go due east. Sneak past the guard (walk, don't run) and reclaim the decks.

Go up the stairs to the west. Sneak through the room and behind the guard. Talk to Yusei and enjoy the show. @Talk to Crow and go to bed. @Leave and watch the scene. Newly Unlocked: -Soul of the Duelist -Flaming Eternity -Cybernetic Revolution -Shadow of Infinity -Power of the Duelist -Strike of Neos -World Championship Duelists (also unlocks World Championship Edition 2) =============== 1.1.c Chapter 3 =============== Chapter 3: The Meeting - The Spirit World and New Allies @Check the tree on the right, then the staff on the left, then the tree again. @Solve a Minus Staff puzzle: 1) Stop the waterfall. 2) Cross the river and fix the bridge on the other side. 3) Start the waterfall. @Duel Torunka. @Go north.

Post Story Mode Unlockables Walkthrough ========================================== This part of the guide is dedicated to unlocking the rest of the goodies found in this game. =================================== 2.1 Unlockables found in Story Mode =================================== This is a breakdown of the unlockables found in story mode.

Structure decks are unlocked by winning structure deck duels in the Arcadia Movement Training Center or with Peko in lower New Domino City.

Many of these items don't appear until after beating the game. ===Satellite: Slum=== --Outside Factory * Chip (in box on right behind gate) --Factory / Team Non-Securities Hideout * Chip (first floor, hidden behind stairs) Twister (second floor after clearing the Hideout) 200 DP (second floor below stairs) * Chip (third floor, scrap heap in bottom left corner) 200 DP (third floor, left of the save point) Flamvell Guard (third floor, right of Torino and Mitchie) 1500 DP (third floor puzzle room bottom right chest) * Chip (third floor puzzle room top right chest) * Chip (third floor puzzle room middle chest) 1000 DP (third floor puzzle room top left chest) Rock'n Roller wardrobe (male) / Worn-out Clothes wardrobe (female) (third floor puzzle room middle left chest) Penguin Soldier (fourth floor, bottom of right platform) Lightning Vortex (fourth floor, top left corner of right platform) --Outside Duel Runner Shop Dust Tornado (clothesline near west entrance) --Inside Duel Runner Shop Colossal Fighter (give Rossi the Wing SP found on old Daedalus Bridge) --South of Duel Runner Shop 1500 DP (southeast corner) ===B.A.D.=== --Entrance Area Wing SP (on top of Daedalus Bridge) * Chip (in shack below Daedalus Bridge) --Crow's House Forbidden Chalice (chest) --Outside Card Shop 200 DP (in box below shop) --Enforcers Hideout 200 DP (chest left of entrance) * Chip (in left corner on second floor) 300 DP (chest on fourth floor) Enemy Controller (inspect map on fourth floor) --Bowling Alley / Team Dirty Works Hideout * Chip (machine in southeast corner) Defender, the Magical Knight (northeast corner) Prime Material Dragon (southwest corner) Shrink (second room behind counter) * Chip (second room at end of northwest lane) --Team Black 'n' Blue Hideout Magical Hats (first floor right room) * Chip (second floor right room cabinet) Counselor Lily (second floor left room) 300 DP (third floor left room top-left crates) Black Horn of Heaven (third floor right room chest) Rough Style wardrobe (both) (basement puzzle room, nearest chest) 1000 DP (basement puzzle room, chest under stairs) 1500 DP (basement puzzle room, chest in southwest corner) Krebons (basement puzzle room, chest along bottom wall) Magical Android (basement puzzle room, chest in northeast corner) * Chip (basement puzzle room, chest in southeast corner) 2000 DP (hidden chest in room-spanning north tunnel) --Securities Building Southeast Confiscation Room Mist Wurm Flamvell Magician The northeast room is unlocked via a terminal in the northwest room. --Securities Building Northeast Confiscation Room * Chip Securities Disk D.D. Crow Breaker the Magical Warrior After beating the game you'll be able to find Sumetana outside the Securities Building. Duel him to get the key to the southwest room. --Securities Building Southwest Puzzle Room 1500 DP (chest in northeast corner) * Chip (make a one-block bridge) Rose Disk (make two three-block bridges) 1000 DP (chest in southwest corner) Suit Style wardrobe (male) / Career Suit wardrobe (female) (chest hidden above south switch) To get the Rose Disk, use every block but the block along the southeast wall and the block nearest the northeast corner. Push them onto the lifts and use the switches to bring them up. Those last two treasures are a chore to get. Without crossing to the north section, bring two blocks from the south section to the west and make a two- block bridge between the north and south halves. You can now push all the blocks in the north section up the lift and across the bridge to the south, then down the west lift and into the northwest corner to make a five-block bridge. If you do this correctly, the only block that you don't use in the two bridges will be a block stuck along the southeast wall. ===B.A.D. Southern Field=== --Entrance Zeman the Ape King (chest in west corner) Metal Reflect Slime (above south exit) --West Area Zoma the Spirit (chest in top left corner) Big Bang Shot (chest in top right corner) --South Area Future Visions (chest in bottom right corner) 500 DP (examine pillar) --Southwest Area 500 DP (chest in lower left corner) Psychic Lifetrancer (chest left of pillar) --Outside Dome Mausoleum of the Emperor (chest left of stairs) --Inside Dome * Chip (left cross) Underground Arachnid (top cross) ===Arcadia Movement=== --Entrance Nobleman of Crossout (chest in right corner) * Chip (inspect rubble near destroyed entrance) --Training Facility Thought Ruler Archfiend (chest in back) --First Floor (before destruction) 600 DP (northeast corner of east wing) --Second Floor (before destruction) 600 DP (bed in west room of east wing) ===Goodwin Mansion=== Gold Sarcophagus (chest left of Lazar) Discord (chest right of Lazar) ===New Domino City (lower)=== --Entrance * Chip (bottom of screen, obscured by fence) --Blister's Building Fissure (first floor chest) * Chip (left of second floor) Nobleman of Extermination (bed in left apartment) --Outside Card Shop Magic Drain (in crates near bottom) Skill Drain (east of shop, beat Peko in three consecutive structure deck duels) --Card Shop You can trade with Helio every once in a while.

There's no way to enter. --Stadium Waiting Room Foolish Burial (heater in top right corner after receiving Bolt's challenge) * Chip (right cabinet) --Stadium Top 1500 DP (chest in lower right corner) ===Spirit World=== --Main Square * Chip (in fountain) Anti-Spell Fragrance (talk to Torunka after beating all four shadows) After getting the Anti-Spell Fragrance, you can randomly change your face by beating Torunka in a duel. There are some faces you can get that couldn't be selected when you created your character. --South Minus Staff Puzzle Dark Bribe (chest in northeast tree, only when entered from north entrance) * Chip (chest in south tree, only when entered from southwest entrance) --Entrance (south of square and through the puzzle) Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter (chest under tree) --East Minus Staff Puzzle Divine Wrath (north chest in first screen, only when entered from East Forest) --East Forest (after the puzzle) * Chip (inspect the rock) --Zeman's Castle (entrance) Creature Swap (chest behind staircase) Burial from a Different Dimension (chest in northwest corner) --Zeman's Castle (prisoner's room) Necro Gardna (chest) Iron Chain Dragon (under the bed) --Zeman's Castle (puzzle room above prisoner's room) Card Trader (west of entrance) * Chip (hidden behind the first staircase, push top block to the right) * Chip (hidden in tunnel behind the north staircase, push block east to enter) Junk Synchron (middle of room) Dimensional Prison (southwest corner) Stuffed Collar Uniform wardrobe (Male) / Sailor Uniform wardrobe (Female) (northwest corner, push block west from under hidden opening) Royal Decree (along west wall, push blocks north from nearby staircase) --Zeman's room Dark Resonator (chest behind southwest pillar) Grave of the Super Ancient Organism (chest in upper right corner) Burden of the Mighty (chest right of Zeman) =========================== 2.2 Duel Runner Unlockables =========================== There are three kinds of unlockables here: Races, cards, and parts. You'll know you've gotten all the parts of a certain type once a red dragon head appears to the left of its bar on the customization screen. -Races are accessed from the computer in the Duel Runner shops. -Rank is based on time. -The S-Rank times are 30 seconds under the target time. -A common mistake is to put more parts on the Duel Runner than it can handle. An overloaded cart drives slowly and handles poorly. If the stat pentagon turns red, take parts off until it turns blue. ================ 2.2.a Race Times ================ This customization worked for S-Ranking all the races. It's convenient because it focuses on acceleration, so crashes have less impact on your time. ===My Duel Runner=== Frame: Gamma Frame III Engine: DWE-4000 CPU: KPC-900 F Parts: None S Parts: Feather IV R Parts: None I Parts: Accelerator IV ===Time Attack=== 1) Highway Very Hard S-Rank Time: 50" 2) Old Highway Very Hard S-Rank Time: 50" Strategy: Fall in the second hole. Stay in the center of the track to dodge the boulder and the fourth/fifth holes. 3) Old City Very Hard S-Rank Time: 45" Strategy: Head right at each junction. Brake if the laser is going to hit you. It's better than getting hit. 4) Geoglyphs Very Hard S-Rank Time: 40" Strategy: Hug the inner walls to dodge the hazards. Dodge Ccapac Apu's hands by zigzagging left and right with good timing (turn when they jump up). 5) Goodwin Mansion Very Hard S-Rank Time: 1'20" ===Battle=== -S-Rank times are three times the Time Attack S-Rank times. -Use whatever part setup worked in the Time Attack track. ===================================== 2.2.b Race-Exclusive Turbo Duel Cards ===================================== These cards are only found on Duel Runner tracks. If you don't get the specified card, you'll get a random card from one of the Acceleration packs. From my experience, using the DWE-CG engine greatly increases the incidence of the Ultra Rare race-exclusive cards. Highway: 1) Speed Spell - Confiscation 2) Speed Spell - Fissure 3) Speed Spell - Half Seize Old Highway: 1) Speed Spell - Delinquent Duo 2) Speed Spell - Cold Wave 3) Speed Spell - High Speed Crash Old City: 1) Speed Spell - The Forceful Sentry 2) Speed Spell - Curse of Fate 3) Speed Spell - Synchro Defuse Geoglyphs: 1) Speed Spell - Harpie's Feather Duster 2) Speed Spell - Metamorphosis Goodwin Mansion: 1) Speed Spell - Raigeki 2) Speed Edge 3) Speed Spell - Speed Jammer ======================= 2.2.c Duel Runner Parts ======================= Most parts can be bought after beating story mode. The marked parts have specific requirements. DWE-CG increases the chances of picking up a race-exclusive Ultra Rare. KPC-DG triples the DP you get from picking up coins in races. --Frame Alpha Frame I Alpha Frame II Alpha Frame III Beta Frame I Beta Frame II Beta Frame III Gamma Frame I Gamma Frame II Gamma Frame III @Omega Frame: In shop after A-ranking all Time Attack and Battle races @Yusei Frame: S-Rank all Time Attack races. @Wheel of Fortune: S-Rank all Battle races. @Blackbird: Buy/unlock all other frames. @Giganto L: Bought from Chihiro in story mode. @B-Chariot: Talk to Trudge and catch the ghost.

Defeat Princess Pikeru through Izanami three times each to get World Championship Edition 1. For World Championship Editions 5-10, you're going to have to unlock the regular duelists and tag teams listed below. It takes a while, but you should be able to unlock 41 single duel opponents and 24 tag teams without much trouble. From there, you can farm DP to get 90% card completion and unlock Recipe Duel Mode. The hardest duelist requirements are made easier by unlocking Recipe Duel Mode and making the opponent use a "punching bag" deck with only unplayable high-level monsters. By the time I finished unlocking all the duelists (save the 50-hour and 100- hour mark duelists), I had played 43 hours and 498 duels. I played those duels with an insta-win code on, so to adjust for actual play I'll assume each duel takes an additional 5 minutes, for a grand total of 85 hours. Add in time spent farming DP, building decks, and actually playing and you'll easily pass the 100 hour mark. For DP, I was scoring somewhere on the order of 500-700 DP for every duel. This means that some 300,000 DP is amassed just from unlocking stuff. Unfortunately, that isn't nearly enough to get one copy of every card from buying packs. Here are my estimates of what it costs to get a single copy of every card from every pack. ---100% Completion DP Requirement Calculation When you buy a whole set of 50 packs you get 5 Ultra Rares, 10 Super Rares, 35 Rares, and 200 Commons. Same numbers every time. If you only buy packs in sets of 50 until you get all the cards in the set, my math shows that it will cost you an expected value of 1.17 million DP for all the packs. In comparison, if you just bought the All at Random pack you would pay around 2.6 million DP (348 boxes) to get one copy of all the cards. For three copies of each card, you'd have to buy around 2.33 million DP of individual boxes, or 4.37 million DP (583 boxes) of All at Random. To obtain an additional 2 million DP, you're going to have to farm. Duel Runner races and normal CPU duels give roughly 600 DP a minute (takes 55-60 hours to get 2 million DP). Since the rating cap is only 5000 in this game, DP ghosts are only slightly better than racing. Pity. Conclusion: If you want all the cards quickly, use an Action Replay. Sure, the suggestion goes against the spirit of this guide, but it's worth 60 hours of your life. The next fastest DP method is to pick up DP in races for around 60 hours (around 20 hours if you have the Wi-Fi download KPC-DG engine). ===================== 2.3.a Single Duelists ===================== Tier 1 is available from the start. Tiers 2-6 are unlocked through story mode. Tier 7-12 duelists have individual requirements. Some of the duelists require you to do something in a duel. Recipe Duel is the best way to do this, but you need 90% card completion to use it. The next best option is a weak duelist (like Itsuki) in story mode. -1- Princess Pikeru Herald of Green Light Fortune Lady Light Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes Nanobreaker Izanami -2- Clear Vice Dragon B.E.S.

Tier 4-6 tag teams have individual requirements. Some of the duelists require you to do something in a duel. Recipe Duel is the best way to do this, but you need 90% card completion to use it. The next best option is a weak duelist (like Itsuki) in story mode. -1- Reverse Effects Deck Crushers New & Old Dinosaurs Ojama Concert Skill Drain Love Tuner or NOT -2- Protect & Burn Darkness + Fiends Angels & The Fallen Cyber Dragunity Explosive Tag Love Reptiles? -3- Fusion & Synchro Armityle Summoning Order in Chaos Synergy and Unity Water & Fire Removal Guys -4- Lo and Behold: Beat Team "Protect & Burn" 3 times E & D Impact: Beat Team "Darkness + Fiends" 3 times Cyber Regeneration: Beat Team "Angels & The Fallen" 3 times Simochi Study: Beat Team "Cyber Dragunity" 3 times Grinder Summoning: Beat Team "Explosive Tag" 3 times Legend's Anniversary: Beat Team "Love Reptiles?" 3 times -5- Storm of Darkness: Beat Team "Fusion & Synchro" 3 times Mausoleum's Legend: Beat Team "Order in Chaos" 3 times Child of Chaos: Beat Team "Water & Fire" 3 times Dual Duel: Beat Team "Removal Guys" 3 times Fish-the-World: Activate 200 spells and 200 traps Duel Ritual: Complete 300 Single Duels -6- Gadget Emperor: Complete 150 Tag Duels To the Graveyard: Complete 75 Turbo Duels Trago Genex: Summon VWXYZ - Dragon Catapult Cannon Dragon & Dragon: Summon Five-Headed Dragon Zombie Path: Win by attacking with Skull Servant Earthbound Crystal: Summon Rainbow Dragon ================== 2.3.c Tag Partners ================== You unlock most of these by beating the respective character in 3 Tag Duels, or 3 regular duels for the duelists you can't tag duel. Talk to Ogura at Bootleg in lower New Domino City to switch your story mode partner. To switch your World Championship partner go to "Tag Settings" under the "Free Duel" menu. I don't know if this is a complete list, but it's what I had after running all over story mode. It includes all 18 story mode duelists who tag duel plus Jack, Akiza, and a second Crow. -1- Yusei Crow (1630) Igusa Hashinoshima Torino Mitchie -2- Itsuki Annie Leo Luna Akiza Jack -3- Blister Bolt Figaro Corse Angie Morrison -4- Liquid Okita Crow (920; World Championship only) ================== 2.4 Pack Checklist ================== This is what your card shop will look like after unlocking all the packs.

If you're having trouble getting a bonus, do it in Recipe Duel mode after getting 90% of the cards. A weak duelist in story mode (Itsuki comes to mind) is appropriate before unlocking Recipe Duel. Monsters have to be summoned normally, and spells/traps have to be activated. Destiny Hero - Diamond Dude's effect works with the Normal Spells and will unlock the bonus. Future Fusion works for most of the fusions.

Credits ========== ~~c0rps3's Card/Pack List FAQ~~ This had all the duelist and pack unlock requirements, which helped me greatly in writing a pack unlock walkthrough. I used it for pack requirements in sections 2.1.a and 2.3 of this guide, and single and tag duelist requirements in sections 2.3.a and 2.3.b. ~~u4120119~~ For providing emblem names and requirements for Average Duel Disk, Typical Duel Disk, Thousand Dragon, and the Wi-Fi medals. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=978594&topic=53983396 ~~CyberDragon10K and others~~ For noticing an error in the "Whirlwind of Dragunity!!" unlock condition. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=978594&topic=54083814 ======== 7.
