Chazz Princeton's Deck changes gradually throughout the Seasons of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. His ever-changing Deck is a parallel to his ever-changing philosophy on Dueling and his place in the world. His manga counterpart uses a different Deck entirely, composed of Dragon-Type monsters and their support cards, with his ace card being "Light and Darkness Dragon".


Seven Stars

Chazz's Deck goes through a large amount of changes in this season alone, as he rarely uses the same Deck for more than one Duel.


Opponent(s) Episode(s) Outcome(s)
Jaden Yuki 2 No result
Bastion Misawa 12 Lose

Chazz originally played a "Chthonian" Deck. "Chthonian" is an archaic word literally meaning "of or relating to the Underworld" and was used as a replacement for "Hell" when the TCG cards were released and the series was dubbed.

Chazz is given rare "VWXYZ" cards by Vellian Crowler that he uses against Jaden for the duration of one episode. Though the Deck itself is only used once, all of the cards in it are shown again when Chazz starts combining separate Deck concepts in Seasons 2 and 3.

After becoming the top-ranked student at North Academy by defeating all fifty other students, including their top-ranked student Czar, Chazz is gifted with the "Armed Dragon" Deck by North Academy's Chancellor Foster to use against Jaden Yuki in the "School Duel", an annual match between a nominated member of the student bodies of North Academy and Duel Academy.

Chancellor Foster forgets to take the "Armed Dragon" Deck back after Chazz opts to remain at Duel Academy (in the dub this line is changed to him bemoaning the fact that he didn't get a kiss from Ms. Dorothy). Despite this, Chazz keeps the cards and the issue is never brought up again.

It is around this time in the original version that he debuts his nickname "Manjoume Thunder." The name is a pun in Japanese, but was considered untranslatable. The chant is simply changed to "Chazz it Up" in the dub.

He ceases using this Deck late in his service to the Society and begins to use it again after being freed from Sartorius' influence by Jaden Yuki. Some of the cards from his "Chthonian" Deck were also featured in the opening theme and also discarded via card effects.

"Infernal White" and "White Veil" were given to Chazz by Sartorius and in his mind represented this servitude to the Society, so he ceased using them after his exodus from the group. He also begins calling himself "Manjoume White Thunder" in the Japanese version, signifying his devotion to Sartorius.
