Bonz is a playable Legendary Duelist in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. This is a video game depiction of Bonz, a character from the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime.

From February 13, 2018 onwards, Bonz appears at the Gate once the player reaches Stage 13 in Duel World (DM). At that time, the character missions to unlock him become available. Prior to that, Bonz was only obtainable by earning 1900 points in the special event Bonz's Spooky Zombie Party, with Bonz being referred to as Spooky Bonz throughout the event.

Prior to being made available as a playable character, Bonz had also appeared during a special event as a roaming opponent, and during the special event Duelist Chronicles: Set Sail for the Kingdom.

Yellow keys are needed to duel Bonz in the Gate.

Biography

Picking up from his appearance in the anime, Bonz survived his ordeal with Yami Bakura and enters Duel Links looking to make a name for himself amongst a strong assortment of Duelists. He aims to beat Joey after his previous defeat and take revenge on Bandit Keith. Meanwhile, he's scared of Yami Bakura and keeps his distance.

While exploring Duel Links, Bonz found that Bella had dropped one of her cards and tried to return it to her. Unfortunately, the meek girl mistook him for a ghost and ran off in terror. Yugi and Joey found Bella and decided to investigate, eventually finding that the "ghost" was actually Bonz. Joey impulsively assumed that Bonz had deliberately scared Bella to steal her card and challenged him to a duel.

After the duel, Bonz explained himself and returned Bella's card, while also giving her his Pumpking of Ghosts. Bonz revealed that he was leaving Duel Links, since every duelist either intimidated him or was scared of his appearance. Fortunately, Bella changed his mind by offering to duel him. Having restored his faith and made new friends, Bonz decided to stay in Duel Links after all.

Description

Bonz puts the fright in his foes with a Ghost Deck full of Zombies. Though he faithfully served Bandit Keith during Duelist Kingdom, his loyalty was rewarded with betrayal when Bandit Keith ditched Bonz after losing to Joey. Bonz also entered in the Battle City Tournament, but Yami Bakura quickly spooked him out of the prelims.
