While browsing at a Japanese bookstore in Tokyo last year, I stumbled upon 
V Jump's official guide for the Yu-Gi-Oh GX  Gameboy Advance game (which 
wasn't even out in the U.S. at the time). "Free E-Hero Mudball Man!!" it 
screamed on the cover. The following thoughts immediately crossed my mind: 

* "Engrish" is alive and well in Japan
* I wonder if someone at Konami was inspired by the Beavis and Butthead 
golf ball episode where Butthead noticed Beavis' muddy golf balls and said: 
"Beavis, go wash your balls, they're filthy ".
* Why does this tiny book with only one free card cost 952 yen (about $9) 
while V Jump's heftier Variable Book 8, which comes with two cards -- Bakura'
s Death Cavalier Knight and Yugi's Dragon of Destruction Gandora -- cost 
only 857 yen?

Anyway, I figured this horribly named card might make a good collector's 
item and more than pay for the price of the book someday so I decided to 
get it. 
And now that I just got the American version of the game, I finally started 
reading the book and noticed it has a section about the game's 33 "Special 
Events." I figured I might as well translate it so I can enjoy this game 
a bit more.

I warn you, though: My Japanese isn't exactly great and I have barely started 
the game, plus I have a Japanese guide but am playing the American version, 
so the potential for mistakes is a bit high. I have yet to verify the majority 
of these events to make sure I translated them right; I will go ahead and 
indicate which events I've verified so far and, hopefully, update this guide 
as I (or some of you) verify the others. 
***Also, stuff and cards with names in [brackets] are those whose English 
names I'm not sure about yet.

Comments, verifications and corrections may be sent to [ishingun@hotmail.com] 
and I'll try to answer them when I have time (Don't expect a lightning fast 
response since I'm quite busy. Put Yugi GX FAQ in the subject line to speed 
up the process.)

For those who are interested in the book for some reason or -- gasp -- long 
to get their dirty, little hands on E Hero Mudball Man (6-star fusion of 
E Hero Bubbleman and E Hero Clayman, ATK 1900, DEF 3000, no effect except 
making you snicker), the book is:

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Mezase Dueru Kingu!
(Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters GX: Awaken Duel King!)
Publisher: V-Jump Books
ISBN: 4-08-779342-7

If you're interested in the Variable Book 8 that I also mentioned, the ISBN 
is 4-08-782099-8 (It's basically a catalogue of cards from Ancient Sanctuary 
to Elemental Energy).

If you live in the U.S. and don't know anyone in Japan, just copy and paste 
the info above via e-mail to one of the U.S. Kinokuniya branches and ask 
them to special order the book/s for you.

Now on to the guide...


YU-GI-OH GX DUEL ACADEMY EVENTS


Event 1: School Registration (Verified)

Event 6 UPDATE: Here's an e-mail I got from Dan
"I have just completed event 6: Pride Of The Elite, where you unlock cards
and chazz's (manjome's) e-mail. Unlike how your book might (have) mentioned,
when I did it, the event was basically the same as event 13 where you get
alexis's e-mail. You do get the rewards that were in your book, but you
have to duel chazz's 2 lackies before you can take him on, and you don't
get a choice to duel him or not. Also, for both events 6 and 13, you have
to duel 2 lackies before you take on alexis/chazz."

[1 in 3 chance event will trigger if you duel Sho (Syrus) in the morning]
Beat Sho (Syrus) in a duel after he summons his fusion monster Steam Gyroid. 
This is actually like a timed duel where you must find out how to beat him 
within 1 turn. You'll notice that you're actually using Jaden's deck. Summon 
E Hero Thunder Giant, use his special ability to destroy Steam Gyroid, then 
attack directly for the win. Sho will run away and Asuka (Alexis) will arrive 
and talk to you about Sho and his brother Ryo (Zane). She will then ask 
you to go to the Ocean at night. (You can still do whatever during the

When you visit the women's dorm at night, Asuka (Alexis) and her friends 
end up suspecting you of being a card thief. Clear your name by winning
