The Chaos Duel Disk resembles a scythed blade. It could fold itself in, by sliding each Monster Card Zone and its corresponding Spell & Trap Card Zone under the one next to it until the field was completely folded into the hinged "spell trigger" part. It then folds into the central part of the Disk, creating a compact form.
- Not being able to use card protectors; this can ruin cards.
- The lack of a Fusion Deck Zone.
- Only having a maximum of 9990 Life Points, which is not too difficult to surpass.
- It folds in different, instead of the front tip folding into the center, the Monster Card Zone closest to the Field Card Zone is visible.
The toy does not fold up as much as the anime version. The Card Zones similarly slide under another, but the last two do not fold into anything.
The hinge on the toy is the whole of the first and second card spaces, which pushes to the back of the central part and though not as compact as the anime Chaos Duel Disk, it is still the most compact and light-weight of the toy Duel Disks.
