Top 10 Best Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Characters

The Top Ten
1 Jaden Yuki

Jaden Yuki is honestly the best duelist and he only had three losses in like nearly 200 episodes. His allies are Syrus, Alexis, Bastion, Atticus, Chazz, Aster, Zane, Axel, Jim and Jesse. He is definitely the next King of Games.

Second place for me goes to the Jaden Yuki.
Because he's inteligent, humble, funny main character, who doesn't hate anyone and protects his friends throughout the whole anime series and isn't afraid of a unknown danger. He proves that through his every duel.

The Main Protagonist Jaden with his Elemental Hero and Neo Space Deck.

Better Get Your Game Om cause the Duel isn't over till the last Card is played

He can See Duel spirits and has the power of the Supreme King also he can apparently see the inner spirits of people. No one knew what to think if this kid who came late to his entrance exams and was forced to duel Crowler instead of and easier opponent. He pulled off a massive upset over the Weird ( man I think) teacher which gained him a lot of attention for others and many doubters. From that day one he kept proving others wrong and improving the people thoughts of him time and time again. He has shown he's do anything to help a friend and is willing to forgive even the craziest of people. His spirit and passion for duelling in very cool to see. For a long time Duelling to him was nothing but fun times and a game ( even having a fun time duelling in a Shadow Duel).

Until later on when more duels he fought the more danger he was in and so were his friends.

He Saves the day nearly all the time and loves Dueling. Though he's a great Duelist his grades aren't that great mainly cause he's not paying attention or he's sleeping through class but his ability to pull a rabbit out of his deck to win duels is whats kept him from being expelled on many of occasions. Professor Crowler has been making Jaden Jump over hurdles to just survive and that was only in season 1. He's had to battle so many Crazy power hungry villains Like Satarious, Viper, Shawdow Riders, Yubel, Supreme King and more how he's kept that smile is shocking to most.

He's even beaten The Sacred Beasts twice.

He's also merged with Yubel to once again be together again but to also stop Yubel from causing anymore damage after leading Jaden and his friend into a dark world to search for Jesse who was under the control of Yubel after their 2 on 1 duel against her.

Other than his Grades of lack there of his main... more

2 Zane Truesdale

Zane is a great character throughout the series. One of the strongest duelists ever. I didn't really like him when he became evil but he was really good at duelling then as well. I love how he realises that he was wrong about his little brother Syrus. Also, the way he decided to stand down in the duel against Camula was very brave of him and he lost that duel for Syrus. He has nice hair and eyes.

He's a humble and brilliant duelist.
I like towards the end of season 3 where he was dueling Dark Jesse and actually said Syrus he's proud of him even thou he kinda mocked him before.
I mean he's his brother after all so , that's nice of him.
I do love his Cyber dragon deck.

Great duelist and humble

3 Alexis Rhodes

Alexis is a good character. One of the smartest students in Duel Academy. She has definitely become more fond of Jaden. A lot of the guys are falling for her. She has beaten Chazz, Atticus, Titan.

I like Lexi , because she has interesting looking deck.
Her Cyber girls are strong and ritual monsters too.
She's Obelisk blue definitely for a reason.
In the anime I really don't remember her winning any duels :P but I think she did.

This attractive & strong female Duelist is one of the most talented on Duel Academy. She's also overly Popular and she's everyone's eye candy. She's also a really almost perfect student she rarely causes trouble.

Shes has many Female Warriors and Ritual Cards. She is quite the smart Duelist too. I'd want to have her support if I ever was in a duel and needed help.

She doesn't have many downsides other than her popularity ( even if she doesn't acknowledge it too often)

She's always supporting her friends but she can also get very angry and depressed.

She is quite fond of Jaden since she first saw him make waves in the school and beat her in a forced duel in comeback fashion and in the last 2 seasons she's really looking out for him even when he's beating himself up. Oh also cause Jaden saves her darkness ridden Brother Atticus from the control of the shadows.

In Season 4 Alexis wasn't sure what she would does after graduating but it took a Tag Duel with Jaden to help her figure out what she wants to do and they both skip around the real words but they are both grateful for meeting one another.

There are manys things that make Alexis the great duelist and strong person and the make her gain a lot of attention when she is nearby. She wears her emotions on her sleeve and she's easy to connect with as a character. Now as you can she she's very good looking beautiful is the word and there is good quality to her but she's more than just a body she's a strong Woman with passion for duelling and friends.

Important Cards - Cyber Blader, Etole Cyber, Blade Skater, Cyber Prima, Cyber Tutu, Cyber Angel Benten, Cyber Angel Dikini, White Veil, Fusion Gate

Cyber Warriors is her Recipe

Closets Allies She has lots of friends but is only Close with few people Atticus Rhodes, Mindy, Jasmine, Zane & Jaden

Her Nicknames are Lex, Lexi, Queen of Obelisk Blue

4 Bastion Misawa

The smartest character in Yugioh Gx.
His decks revolve around calculations and studying of his opponents carefully.
I like that he's that kind of guy and he really is smart , he shows that many times.
I do love his bonding h2o deck with Hydrogedon and Oxygedon and Water Dragon his signature monster.

He did get a little bit lost in the shuffle for a while but early on he was really really big!

He's basically a Duelling Genius. His IQ is beyond any other Student at Duel academy. He duels by relying on Science and not Instincts. He is looked at as #2 To only Jaden when it comes to duel skills cause he hasn't beaten him. His two down sides are not being noticed more times than not and his weakness to focusing around women and female cards. He was once so distracted by Shadow rider/Amazon Woman Tania he lost focus to her power and fail to beat her and lost the key.

His brain is outstanding it can figure out a problem in no time and he also took time to work with Dr Eisenstein to improve his knowledge. He's a complete duelling package with everything but being number 1.

Important Cards - Water Dragon, Oxeygeddon, Magnet Warriors, Blade Knight, Hydrogeddon, Plasma Warrior Eitom, Doom Swordsman, White Magician Pikeru,

His recipe is um well he actually has many different decks for the different monster types

Closest Allies are Few and far between but His best pals are Jaden, Syrus & Tania ( Amazon Woman)

His Nickname is Niban, Misawy.

5 Aster Phoenix

Third place goes to the Aster Phoenix.
I love him because he gives his life to protect his friends, in one episode, which is in fact a sad one for me.
Also his destiny heroes are also nice looking.

Aster Phoenix is definitely good-looking. He is a good duelist but has been beaten by Jaden, Chazz, Sartorius, Adrian. I actually thought he was going to beat Adrian but I guess I was wrong. Aster's cards: Destiny hero plasma, destiny hero doom lord, destiny hero dogma, diamond dude, captain tenacious. He has beaten Jaden and Zane. That was literally Zane's first defeat.

6 Chazz Princeton

You know the cheer. Chazz it up! He has definitely grown as a duelist and person. He defeated Alexis the second time. He also defeated Aster Phoenix which surprised me. He saved Duel Academy by beating his brother Slade in a duel.

He might be a little arrogant, but he is an amazing duelist. If I ever could, I would make a reboot of GX with Chazz as the main character who is super nice and selfless. At the end of the show Alexis would kiss him.

Even thou he's a Jerk character in the beginning of the anime, he changes and grows as a duelist and a person as time goes on and during second season.

7 Tyranno Hassleberry

This Dinosaur Blooded Sargent Duelist we met in the 2nd season but he's become a really important Character.

Cool fact he actually has Dinosaur DNA in his body cause in his leg there is a dino Bone. Hasselberry's bullying was were put to a halt by Jaden and it seems to change Him for the best cause he looked at Jaden as a true friend and a hero. His Downsides are He speaks and acts like a Army Sargent nearly all the time and he's so loud. Also he always talks how he'll exact revenge on an enemy but often time he backs down.

He eventually becomes a very strong minded and very reliable soldier of sorts for The Duel Academy when is came under The Duel ghouls and the dimension change. He's a natural born leader and with his din senses he's one heck of a awesome duelist.

He's shown little interest in love though at times he'll comment about girls

Important Cards Black Tyranno, Ultimate Tyranno, Gilasaurus, Dark Driceratops. Black Stego, Jurassic World, Big ...more

8 Jesse Anderson

Jesse Anderson is like Jaden. He has a bond with his cards and can talk to duel spirits. He has a passion for duelling too. He has a legendary deck the Crystal Beasts. Luckily, he got the Rainbow dragon which I think is a great card. When Jesse was possessed by Yubel he used a dark crystal beast deck. He was trapped in the rainbow dragon card but thank goodness Jaden saved him. He is my second favourite character to me. He has beaten Adrian and Zane. He is so good-looking. He has got nice teal hair and nice eyes. His accent is cute.

My favorite character in whole yugioh gx.
I love all crystal beast cards.
I love that crystal beast cards are like a family to him and that he can talk with Ruby Carbuncle and Ruby Carbuncle is super cute monster.
And I do love his theme of deck are crystals. One thing I love too that I do have some of the Crystal beast cards in real life.

This Special Kid named Jesse has a unique bond with his Cards and spirits. He Treats his Cards known as the super rare Crystal beasts cards like a Family he duels in a way which protects his beast from the graveyard. He usually always brings them back to the field. There that and his beats special ability that when they are attacked they will stay on the field in the spell and trap zone shaped like crystals to in which leads to a crazy strong power. Jessie's Dueling skills are technically better but very similar to Jaden. In ways of his love for duelling even in dangerous situations and having a spirit follow him just like Jaden Called Ruby. He's got a southern accent and charm to him which makes him very noticeable but in a good way. Rumour has it the Crystal beast card chose him Pegasus noticed this himself and had Jessie obtain the cards. He acquired all but the one most powerful Crystal in which hadn't been made yet at the time until much later when Jesse and friends were stuck in the weird dimension created by Yubel.

After many rough challenges of trying to sustain there duel energy at the same time trying to not become Duel Ghouls for Marcel who was being controlled by Yubel. After time pasted it was discovered where the Rainbow Dragons tablet was and after searching throughout the desert for it Pegasus created it and was able to transfer it to the place Jesse and friends were trapped in after Jesse was able to give enough of his duel energy in a duel against Zane which opened a portal to get the Dragon to him. Once Jesse found the All mighty Rainbow he gave Jaden a big hand in the duel against Yubel and helped take down the Sacred beasts but in duelling so he sacrificed himself to the darkness to get Jaden and others back at the real Duel Academy. Sadly Yubel somehow took control of Jesse which sent the last parts of season 3 into one of the darkest parts of the series involving Jaden being consumed into the Supreme King.

Eventually after a lot... more

9 Jim Crocodile Cook

I love Jim. He is good-looking, has a cool Australian accent and honestly I love his pet crocodile Shirley.

Well Hello there Mate. That's how Jim Greets most people. Coming from South Academy and a transfer, Now Jim Cook is a very unique character. For a few reasons, He's got a pet/partner Crocodile name Shirley who he's protected for his entire life from poachers and gained her trust.

He uses Shirley to figure out if he can trust someone depending how she reacts to them. She can also sense weird vibrations in the ground which has helped big time when Viper was causing energy drainage.

Now he also have a unique power called the eye of Orichalcum which had to do with a comet & it can give him the ability to look into people's Mind and soul and whats happening within. He gained this power by risking his life to save Shirley from a trap and fell into a river. He used this power to try and reach into Jaden mind when he was at the time the Supreme King and the darkness was at it's strong point. Jim had helped the Eye covered in bandage until the time was right and that was now so ...more

10 Dark Magician Girl

That's literally one of my favorite cards! I love Dark Magician Girl!

The Contenders
11 Atticus Rhodes
12 Jasmine
13 Syrus Truesdale

Jaden's closest friend and a character who lacks confidence and courage in the beginning.
But I like that he manages to get to Ra Yellow further on.
He's humble , looks up to his friends.

His deck is good he even beat jaden once!

This little guy's name is Syrus and he's the younger broth roof Zane who is also haunted by the way Zane treated him when he was younger cause Syrus used bad language when he got in over his head in duels and Ever since Then Syrus has been afraid to use his most powerful spell card Power Bond cause he didn't know how to play it right.

Syrus isn't as bad a duelist as he keeps saying to everyone his problem is the self doubt that prevents him from shining most of the time. Syrus has a hidden but strong side to him when he finds that little ounce of belief in himself he can hold his own in duels and he's even won quite a few. In many ways Jaden helped Syrus so many times and got him out of trouble. Jaden always showed that he believe in Syrus and has his back. One of the first true signs of this was Syrus and Jaden's Tag duel against Para and Dox set up by Crowler to try and teach Jaden a lesson and force syrus to duel along side him knowing syrus in his mind was a weak duelist. The duel was getting worrisome for Syrus and Jaden but Through the help of Jaden's friendship to Syrus he was able to overcome his fears and help Jaden win the Tag duel. Also at some point over time Syrus finally used Power Bond in the right way and it ended a lot of his self doubt. To the point he Tried Dueling against his Brother Zane who at this time was A much darker and ruthless dueler.

This duel didn't go Syrus's way but it did make him stronger and made Zane realize Syrus has become better.

Through think and thin Syrus has been the best friend of Jaden even when times were hard when Jaden was the Supreme King. In many Ways Syrus was one of the main reason Jaden was able to get free format he dark.

Syrus has a,so elevated from Slifer to Ra to Obelisk showing he's really grown stronger.

His other downsides are he's super scared and petrified almost every single time something goes wrong. Also he can Scream for a long time which hurts my... more

14 Vellian Crowler

I didn't thought I would put this character on this list at all but here he is.
I do have my hates for this character,mainly because in the whole first season he's working that Jaden gets expelled from the school and actually acting as such a jerk professor and kind of a villain, but not really.
But I like that he changes during the end of first season, while dueling Camula.

Thought he was a real jerk at 1st. But that all changed when he went up against camula.

15 Axel Brodie

He was very intriguing and became super important as the season 3 went on

16 Lyman Banner

As Amneal he devastated most of the high end duellist on this list with ease and pushed Jaden to become stronger then ever. Also his ability to be chill and funny was awesome

17 Adrian Gecko
18 Yubel
19 Chumley Huffington

Well all I can say is This guy has Lisichus skill for designing Card and Skiil for eating Grilled cheese and he's not a terrible Duelist by any means, but Chumley lacks in the motivation department and isn't a good student as in he was held back due to his grades. He's a very big guy with a good heart when it comes to his Designing and his love for his Koala Cards. Eventually after Jaden and Syrus came along he started doing a lot more then just being a lazy student. He was having a lot of fun with his new friends but then after a call to Sheppard it was discovered that's Chumley's Hot Sauce working Dad was coming to the island to take his son back home cause he wasn't doing good enough with his grades. So Jaden decided to give Chumley a hand in the duel against his dad where if he lost he'd be force to leave Duel academy. Chumley showed he's not a pushover dueller but he still couldn't beat his dad but before Chumley was saying goodbye his dad left a note saying he sees how good of ...more

20 Blair Flannigan

Blair , she's a interesting one..
I do have on DVD that episode where she dueled Jaden for the first time and boy was it good.
I like her cause she showed her emotions for Zane at first , but in fact she loved Jaden, even thou she was still 8 year old at a time when he faced her for the first time.
Her deck is interesting and she is just helpful during the whole anime series.
Also grows a lot later on as a duelist.

She is underrated
