Itsuwari no Nanbāzu
Barian Numbers, known as Fake Numbers in the Japanese version, were artificial "Numbers" manufactured by Don Thousand (in addition to the "Number 10X" also created by him) in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime. According to Vector and Trey, approximately one million of them were released into the Human World at the beginning of the Barian Emperor Onslaught.
In Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, Don Thousand used the Fusionizer in his hidden palace to mass produce artificial "Numbers" which were contained in the device. Mr. Heartland describes the effect the Barian "Numbers" could have as a "bravo" one. Under orders from Vector, Heartland scattered the Barian "Numbers" across the Human World. Barian Numbers were shown as blank cards of pink energy when they rained upon Heartland City. Similar to the real "Numbers," Don Thousand's artificial creations possessed corrupting abilities that manipulated the personality of their hosts.
Unlike a real "Number", however, each person who picks up a Barian "Number" gains a Barian Emblem on their forehead in the same manner as those controlled by "Rank-Up-Magic Barian's Force". The ultimate effect of the Barian Numbers were to drive the citizenry of Heartland City to riot, increasing the hatred of the people in the Human World until it could be matched and fused with Barian World in Don Thousand's agenda. Heartland also notes that those influenced by a Barian Number resonate a unique "frequency" that could be used as a tracking method, as seen when Heartland used the frequency given off by Flip Turner to locate the Numbers Club. The victims of the Barian Numbers were later revived following the defeats of Don Thousand and Nash.
