Yugioh Abridged is a parody series created by Little Kuriboh, it’s been running for many years and even the latest episodes are still fresh with rib-tickling scenes. By far the main reason for Yugioh Abridged’s success is the characters, the creators got the voices and personalities absolutely spot on. Throughout the years, we’ve been subject to hilarious lines and the characters have grown on us. As a small tribute to Little Kuriboh, I’ve ranked the top 10 best Yugioh Abridged characters of all time!
This list will of course be my own opinion but I’m confident I chose the right characters.
When Shadi first emerged in the series, I expected him to be the only ‘serious’ character in the show. Boy, was I wrong. His introduction was hilarious, as was all other lines we hear him speak throughout the show. Such a minor character in the main Yugioh series is one you want to see more of in Yugioh Abridged.
9. Rex & Weevil
Little Kuriboh was genius to incorporate the hilarity of Beavis & Butthead with the pathetic endeavors of Rex & Weevil. These duelist were known as small antagonists in the main series while in Yugioh Abridged, they were reduced to mere comic relief.
8. Mokuba Kaiba
Lets be honest, the Mokuba in Yugioh Abridged is treated exactly like everyone wishes he was in the main series. Almost completely ignored, told to shut-up whenever he speaks and portrayed as a spoilt little boy.
7. “My hair” guy
Whatever this guy’s name is, I call him the “My hair” guy due to his obsessive nature of spouting sentences beginning with “my hair”. Understandable really, his hair is glorious and I’m sure it does have a mind of its own, or maybe his hair is the real him and his body is just under its control?
6. Pharoah/Yami Yugi
Pharoah’s badassary translates well from the original series to the Abridged one, although Little Kuriboh has given him a ‘no ****s given’ attitude as well as a seemingly homosexual nature. Yami doesn’t take any insults from anyone, he always has a card up his sleeve, ready to hit his foes right back. Such actions are epic, few characters can compare to the Pharoah in Yugioh Abridged.
5. Seto Kaiba
Seto Kaiba is arguably the most down to earth character on the show, I love how Little Kuriboh didn’t give him a funny voice and idiotic personality. This is what makes Yugioh Abridged so great in my worthless, disgusting opinion. Although he is quite different from his main show counter-part, Abridged Kaiba is prone to hilarious lines and even more epic actions.
4. Yugi Moto
He does kind of lack the amusement as others but he contributes heavily to the plot and who doesn’t love Yugi? His constant lack of disposition towards his friends and grandfather is quite funny though, overall the show would miss him if his personality was changed.
3. Yami Marik
2. Tristan Taylor
Well, this entry is more for Tristan’s voice than his entire character. His voice is beautiful, mesmerizing and articulate. It even grants Tristan superpowers, like the ability to remain quiet in a full suit of armor as well as giving him super strength at times. The death of Tristan’s voice was a traumatic experience but we managed to pull through eventually.
1. Joey Wheeler
Joey takes the number 1 spot due to his constant barrage of hilarious faces, famous lines and friendship with Tristan. No other Yugioh Abridged character is as amusing as Joey, Tristan is very close but he lacks the facial expressions of the Wheeler!
