Yu-Gi-Oh! trivia from PsychoSpaceCow
#1
Ever heard of a gem called Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories? It was the only Yu-Gi-Oh! game for the playstation one, and it plays completely differently from the main game, going by different rules involving celestial bodies, different spell/trap card effects (for example,in the card game, dark hole destroys all monsters on the field and sends them to the graveyard. In this game, an actual black hole opens up and takes away all cards, not just monsters)(and monsters outright don't have effects), using a different system of fusion, and completely ignoring the star rules all together. Rather fun, albeit difficult game honestly, but that's not why I'm here.

This game, which was released on December 9th 1999 for Japan actually created some characters that would be used in the anime later on, actually creating an entire arc of the series based around the main cast's ancient egyptian incarnations.

Shimon Muran (Simon in the game) first appeared in this game as the pharoah's tutor. He would go on to make his first appearance in episode 201 "Memoirs of the Pharoah which aired April 21st 2004 in Japan.

Priest Seto (the incarnation of Kaiba) and Pharaoh Atem (Yami/Dark Yugi, you play as him) appeared in this game originally. Their first appearance was on a museum wall in episode 52 which debuted April 24th 2001 in Japan.
Ishizu Ishtar first appeared in this game and episode as well.

Maximillion Pegasus appeared on the first episode of the second series of Yu-Gi-Oh! and he still appeared first in this game. (there was an original series which didn't focus on the card game. It has the card game, but it was more about Yami Yugi killing generally bad people in games, literally)

Same with weevil, Rex, Mai, and Bandit Keith

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Mai_Valentine (episode 3)
http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Keith_Howard (episode 16)

This is likely because Yu-Gi-Oh! as a brand was going through a transitionary stage, from Bandai to Konami and as a result, nothing would really have been set in stone.

Another fun fact is that this game has some cards that never made it to the international release of the game, becoming exclusive to Japan.
This is an example of that.

Another fun fact is that some of these exclusives were recently printed for the international releases. This is a good example.

Personally, I never knew Crimson Sunbird wasn't in the game until I heard they were printing them.

As opposed to making a new thread, I just renamed this one for my Yu-Gi-Oh! finds.

The card "Getsu Fuhma" is based off the protagonist of the Japan-only Famicom game released by Konami in 1987, Getsu Fūma Den.
The card "Ryu Kokki" is based on the last boss of the Japan-only Famicom game released by Konami in 1987, Getsu Fūma Den. In the game, it transforms two times (it has three forms), and the card illustration depicts its final form.

There are two Moai cards which quite likely are referencing Gradius, one's description saying it shoots laser blasts from its lips, one actually doing that.

There's also a few Goemon cards.

This doesn't really pertain to trivia but I thought it was amusing.
Yae got a breast reduction on her way to the international market.

Also, for the Sasuke cards.

Yes, he looks exactly like a Castlevania character. I don't think he is based a specific one though, but some Castlevania characters have taken similar poses.

Considering they're both made by Konami, this could be more than just a coincidence.

Well, the trivia part says the castlevania castle is the one in the background and that the card is a reference to the Belmonts.

Since the card is named Vampire Hunter, he may be based on the character Vampire Hunter from Castelvania: The Arcade.

I don't think so. He doesn't really look like him and Yu-Gi-Oh! labels different cards by type/attribute/ archetype (which is in the name).
So, he is Warrior/dark/vampire.
Its meant to fit with the other vampire cards, or as a counter to them.

You can use him with these.
I haven't built vampires but it'd be a good option to side deck (a deck you can change cards from in a 3-duel match) if your opponent uses dark monsters.

Or it could be named after the whip the Belmonts carry around.

That is true, its original translated name is Vampire Killer. I can see why the International version would get a name change.

Hey guys, thanks for the help with the vampire hunter card. I never got past the first couple areas in a castlevania so I don't know too much about it. I just recognized the art style and castle.

It also states these cards are based off of the goemon characters on the goemon wiki.
