  • Whenever Arkana summons "Dark Magician", a cut-in frame of Arkana will appear, and he'll say "Hahahaha! Here comes the greatest magician of all!" If he hasn't already Summoned "Dark Magician" during that Duel, a cutscene of "Dark Magician" being Summoned will play afterwards.
    • When attacking with Dark Magician, most of the time he'll say "Dark Magician serves me - and only me! Dark Magic Attack!"
  • Whenever Arkana summons "Malice Doll of Demise", he announces "This monster should strike you with fear! Malice Doll of Demise!"
    • Whenever Arkana attacks with "Maclice Doll of Demise", he announces "Malice Doll of Demise attacks!" followed by "Cleaver Heaver!"
    • Whenever Arkana activates the effect of "Malice Doll off Demise", he announces "Malice Doll of Demise! Activate your effect!"
  • Whenever Arkana summons "Mystic Tomato", he announces "This card'll do! Mystic Tomato!"
    • When its effect activates he'll say "I tricked you! Mystic Tomato's effect activates!"
  • Whenever Arkana summons "Legion the Fiend Jester", he announces "Brace yourself for Legion the Fiend Jester!"
    • Whenever its effect activates, Arkana will say "Legion the Fiend Jester's effect activates!"
    • Whenever Arkana attacks with "Legion the Fiend Jester", he announces "Attack, Legion the Fiend Jester!"


  • When activating "Dark Room of Nightmare" he'll say "I activate my Continuous Spell! Dark Room of Nightmare!"
  • When activating "Thousand Knives" he'll say "This card slices and dices! Thousand Knives!"
  • When activating "Ectoplasmer" he'll say "This Spell Card drains the very soul of my monster to create pure, concentrated energy! The Continuous Spell, Ectoplasmer!"
    • When activating the effect of "Ectoplasmer", Arkana will say "My monster will be turned into a hollow shell, but I don't care as long as I win! Fire its ectoplasm!"
  • When activating "Dark Renewal" he'll say "I activate my Trap Card! Dark Renewal!"


  • Currently, Arkana is the only character who can Summon a monster that causes a different cutscene to play than its original counterpart; in this case "Dark Magician".
