Hmmm...
To do:
  • Add changes to the card art.
  • See if there are any other notable differences between characters' Decks.
  • Check if characters that can't appear in Matches (e.g., most of the Ghouls) have dialogue for Matches.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel is the first Yu-Gi-Oh! game released for the Game Boy Advance in Europe. It builds on the previous game by adding a world map, challenges, achievements, and multi-language support.

Unused Graphics

The Masked Beast Mask of Restrict
YGOWWE The Masked Beast.png YGOWWE Mask of Restrict.png

Certain characters have monsters that appear beside them outside of a Duel. (For instance, Dark Magician appears beside Yami Yugi and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon appears beside Seto Kaiba.) Graphics for The Masked Beast and Mask of Restrict are stored when Umbra & Lumis appear. Presumably, they were meant to appear alongside the duo outside of a Duel. The two cards appeared alongside Umbra & Lumis in the Japanese version of The Eternal Duelist Soul.

YGOWWE Eye of Wdjat.png


If no monster appears alongside a character outside of a Duel, Yugi's Dark Magician is used as a placeholder in the game's memory. However, Ishizu has an Eye of Wdjat instead. (Yami Marik, her brother's alter ego, has a distorted Eye of Wdjat in his background.)

YGOWWE Sheep Token.png


The Sheep Token, which can be summoned with the card Scapegoat, normally can't be seen in the localized version of the game. However, it can be seen through a glitch.

Obscured Graphics

These graphics appear in normal gameplay, but are obscured by the characters.

Millennium Puzzle Millennium Rod
YGOWWE Millennium Puzzle.png YGOWWE Millennium Rod.png

The Millennium Puzzle appears in the background when Yugi and Yami Yugi switch places, while the Millennium Rod appears when Marik and Yami Marik switch places. Strangely, the Millennium Ring doesn't appear when Bakura and Yami Bakura switch places.

Duel Monsters 6 Worldwide Edition
YGODM6 Hexagram.png YGOWWE Hexagram.png

In Duel Monsters 6, a hexagram appears in the background when a monster materializes by a character or when a Rare Hunter is unveiled. The hexagram was removed in Worldwide Edition.

YGOWWE Yami Marik Eye.png


A distorted Eye of Wdjat appears behind Yami Marik in the Pyramid.

These are leftover strings from The Eternal Duelist Soul.

Tristan Taylor

Tristan doesn't appear in the game. However, he was an opponent in The Eternal Duelist Soul.

Localized Version Only

These strings aren't used in the localized version, as they correspond to cards that only appear in the Japanese version.

(card) has been designated as the attack target. Do you wish to exercise this creature's effect and select your opponent's monster to substitute as the target?

This is an effect prompt for Ancient Lamp.

Select an opponent's (Type) monster that you wish to control.

This is an effect prompt for Electromagnetic Bagworm, which allows the player to take control of a Machine-type monster.

Ticket
Divine-Beast
DIVINE

These strings are for the three ticket cards (The Monarchy, Set Sail for the Kingdom, and Glory of the King's Hand) and the Egyptian god cards.

Regional Differences

The game was initially released in Japan as Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 6: Expert 2. It was later rereleased worldwide as Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel. (The title of the Japanese rerelease is Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters International: Worldwide Edition.)

Duel Monsters 6 refers to the original Japanese version, while Worldwide Edition refers to the localized version (including the Japanese rerelease).

  • Duel Monsters 6 indicates that the player can switch between tabs with the L and R buttons.
  • Like in previous Japanese games, the cards are numbered in Duel Monsters 6. All cards are filtered by their number by default in Duel Monsters 6 and filtered by their name in Worldwide Edition. The option to filter cards by number was changed to filter cards by name.
  • The font for ATK and DEF is thicker in Worldwide Edition.
  • The icons for "List Filter", "Statistics", and "Exit" are different between versions.

Link Trade

YGODM6Setting1Trade.png

In Duel Monsters 6, the player can trade with Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 5: Expert 1 or another copy of Duel Monsters 6. In Worldwide Edition, the player can only trade with other copies of Worldwide Edition.

Password

Duel Monsters 6 Worldwide Edition
YGODM6 Password Machine.png YGOWWE Password Machine.png
  • It costs 500 Duelist Points (DP) to enter a password in Duel Monsters 6. If the password doesn't work or if the player leaves the menu, the DP isn't refunded. Players can enter passwords for free in Worldwide Edition.
  • The password menu was redesigned.
  • In Worldwide Edition, players can obtain alternate art cards by taking the first four digits of a card's password, and adding a 0 after each of them. For instance, the regular version of Tiger Axe can be obtained by using the password 49791927, while the alternate version of Tiger Axe can be obtained by using the password 40907090. In Duel Monsters 6, most alternate art cards can only be obtained in the Ultimate Random Pack, which contains every card in the game.

Card Limitations

Duel Monsters 6's default card limitations are based on Japan's May 2001 banlist. Worldwide Edition features an updated banlist.

Card Differences

Card Layout

Duel Monsters 6 Worldwide Edition
YGODM6 Card Layout.png YGOWWE Card Layout.png
YGODM6 Rock.png YGOWWE Rock.png

The card layout is different between versions.

  • Duel Monsters 6 uses the Series 2 card layout. Worldwide Edition uses the Series 3 card layout, which features a single box for monsters' card text and statistics and features a taller box for Magic and Trap cards' effects. The layout for the rock symbol in rock-paper-scissors, which is based on a monster card, was changed accordingly.
  • The blue box that indicates a card's properties was shrunk in Worldwide Edition.
  • The first 12 characters of a card's name are listed on the card image in Worldwide Edition.
  • In Duel Monsters 6, Tokens use white font for their ATK and DEF in a card's description. In Worldwide Edition, Tokens use blue font for ATK and purple font for DEF.
  • If the text is set to Japanese in Worldwide Edition, card names don't display furigana.
(Source: Yugipedia for the furigana note)

Removed Cards

Duel Monsters 6 has 1,111 cards (excluding Tokens). Worldwide Edition has 29 cards less, for a total of 1,082 cards. Cards listed in bold appeared in all versions of The Eternal Duelist Soul.

Notes:

  • The Egyptian god cards and the three Ticket cards can't be used in Duel Monsters 6.
  • Scapegoat's removal affects mind-controlled Joey's deck. In Duel Monsters 6, the deck uses the combination of Cannon Soldier and Scapegoat to inflict heavy damage.
  • Although Scapegoat was removed from Worldwide Edition, the Sheep Token is still in the game.

Changed Effects

  • In Duel Monsters 6, Toon World has the following effect:

You must pay 1000 Life Points to activate this card. During each of your Standby Phases, you must pay 500 Life Points or destroy this card.
If this card is destroyed by another card’s effect, you regain all of the Life Points that you paid during your Standby Phase to keep this card in play.

In Worldwide Edition, the player simply has to pay 1000 Life Points to activate Toon World. However, if the language is set to Japanese, Toon World's original effect is listed in its description.

Text Changes

  • In Duel Monsters 6, a character that appears for the first time is listed as "Unkown." This typo was fixed in Worldwide Edition.
  • In Duel Monsters 6, some of the dialogue uses red, green, or blue text. Most notably, the protagonist's inner monologue after the Pyramid scenario uses blue text. In Worldwide Edition, all of the dialogue uses black text.
Duel Monsters 6 Worldwide Edition
YGODM6 Colored Text.png YGOWWE Black Text.png
  • In Worldwide Edition, a blank text box occasionally appears after a duel, and the opponent won't speak until the A button is pressed. This can also happen to Yami Yugi before he is faced in a Match.
  • During the Pyramid scenario in Duel Monsters 6, the game indicates that the player can press A to proceed to the next room or press L / R to edit their Deck between rooms. The text was removed in Worldwide Edition, but the functions are still available.

Opponent Changes

  • Mokuba Kaiba is unlocked after 10 losses in Duel Monsters 6 and 5 losses in Worldwide Edition.
  • In Duel Monsters 6, some opponents can open with fixed hands. Most notably, Yami Yugi and Seto Kaiba open with hands that allow them to defeat the player on the first turn. This "feature" was removed in Worldwide Edition.

  • In Duel Monsters 6, "DRAW Press R" appears over the player's Deck during the player's Draw Phase. Also, the icon for drawing a card is slightly different.
Duel Monsters 6 Worldwide Edition
YGODM6 Draw.png YGOWWE Draw.png
  • The opponent is listed as "Rival Duelist" in Duel Monsters 6 and "Opponent" in Worldwide Edition.
  • The fonts for the phases and surrendering are different.
Duel Monsters 6 Worldwide Edition
YGODM6 Surrender.png YGOWWE Surrender.png
  • A couple of changes were made to Chains in Worldwide Edition.
    • In Worldwide Edition, the Chain window doesn't appear if there is only one card in a Chain. For instance, if a player activates Pot of Greed and their opponent doesn't respond, then the card will immediately resolve. However, if a player activates Pot of Greed and their opponent Chains Magic Jammer, then the Chain window will appear.
    • The Chain window is slightly different in Worldwide Edition. "Block" uses a different font, and the text is closer together.

YGODM5 Coin Tails.png YGOEDS Coin Tails.png
  • In Duel Monsters 6, a pentagram appears in Exodia's cutscene. In Worldwide Edition, the pentagram was replaced with a green Eye of Wdjat and the runes were changed to the runes on the Japanese version of Spellbinding Circle.
Duel Monsters 6 Worldwide Edition
YGODM5 Exodia Summon.png YGOEDS Exodia Summon Background.png
  • In Duel Monsters 6, certain characters have special dialogue during Duels. For instance, Mai has a special line when she activates Elegant Egotist, while Pegasus asks the player if they like cartoons when he activates Toon World. None of the characters have special dialogue during Duels in Worldwide Edition.

Booster Pack Changes

Pack Designs

  • Most of the booster packs in Duel Monsters 6 are based on real Japanese booster packs. In Worldwide Edition, the packs were redrawn to feature a monster and the Yu-Gi-Oh! logo, and the names of the booster packs aren't listed at the bottom of the screen (or anywhere for that matter).

Notes:

  • Ironically, the cover cards from the Gate Guardian and Great Moth packs were removed from the packs in Worldwide Edition.
  • In Duel Monsters 6, Toon World only appears as an Ultra Rare card in the Pharaoh's Servant pack. In Worldwide Edition, Toon World can be obtained at every rarity except Common.
  • In Worldwide Edition, the purple Millennium Puzzle pack adds cards that were removed from the other packs. It also adds some cards that are hard to obtain in Duel Monsters 6:
    • In Duel Monsters 6, the added alternate art cards and Dark-Eyes Illusionist only appear in the Ultimate Random Pack, which contains every card in the game. (The starter deck also includes a copy of the alternate art Dark Magician.)
    • In Duel Monsters 6, Anti-Magic Fragrance only appears in the KONAMI Selection pack (which only appears once every four weeks), the TRAP Selection pack (which contains every Trap card in the game), and the Ultimate Random Pack. The same applies to Riryoku, though it's found in the MAGIC Selection pack instead of the TRAP Selection pack.
    • In Duel Monsters 6, Ultimate Offering only appears in the TRAP Selection pack and the Ultimate Random Pack.
  • In Worldwide Edition, the rarities for Kazejin, Metalzoa, Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth, Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon, Sanga of the Thunder, Suijin, and Thousand-Eyes Restrict were changed from Common to Ultimate Rare in the purple Millennium Puzzle pack.
(Source: Yugipedia for pack contents)

Limitation Tournament

  • In Worldwide Edition, once the player beats a Limited tournament, the player receives one copy of each card they don't own that conforms to the tournament's restrictions. For instance, once the Dragon-type tournament is cleared, the player will receive all Dragon-type monsters that they don't already own.

Bugs

Bug Fixes

  • Duel Monsters 6 has a glitch where the game won't accept any passwords for cards 1087 and higher. This glitch isn't present in Worldwide Edition, which features 1082 cards. (The Egyptian god cards and the ticket cards are also located after card 1086, but they aren't affected by the glitch since they don't have any passwords.)
Duel Monsters 6 Number Affected Card
1087 Red Medicine
1088 Lady Panther
1089 Royal Guard
1090 Skull Guardian
1091 Lord of D.
1092 Novox's Prayer
1093 Spellbinding Circle
1094 Rocket Warrior
1095 Key Mace #2
1096 Worm Drake

1101 Uraby
1102 Remove Trap
1103 Waboku
1104 Laughing Flower
1105 One-Eyed Shield Dragon
(Source: Yugipedia)
  • In Duel Monsters 6, multiple copies of Scapegoat can be activated in one turn, even though Scapegoat prevents the user from summoning any other monsters for the rest of the turn. Since Scapegoat was removed in Worldwide Edition, the glitch isn't present in that game.

Bugs Added

  • The purple Millennium Puzzle pack, Challenge Cup special pack, red Millennium Puzzle pack, and yellow Eye of Wdjat packs can contain glitch cards. The glitch cards can morph into any card, including a Token, or simply cause a graphical glitch. (The yellow Eye of Wdjat pack can only get glitch cards that cause a graphical glitch.) The glitch arises since the game tries to load cards that are only available in Duel Monsters 6.

Oddities

Yugi and Bakura's Monsters

Kuriboh The Earl of Demise
YGOWWE Kuriboh.png YGOWWE The Earl of Demise.png

Regular Yugi and Bakura each have a monster associated with them: Kuriboh appears alongside Yugi, while The Earl of Demise appears alongside Bakura. However, these monsters don't appear if the player loses to one of these characters in a regular Duel; they only appear if the player loses or draws against one of the characters in a Match.
