Gloria Tyler (グロリア・タイラー, Guroria Tairā) is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. She is a member of Duel Academy who was sent to the Xyz Dimension to eliminate the Lancers with her younger twin sister Grace.
Gloria is a fair-skinned woman with red eyes and long blonde hair that hangs over her forehead in three pointed locks; the central one extending to her nose and the other two to chin length, while the back portion of her hair extends down her back and curves up in a short point. Gloria wears a more military outfit than her sister. She wears a tight blue coat with a white front that is patterned with vertical lines and topped with purple curves. She dons gold-lined grey shoulder pads over her coat, white elbow-length gloves, and a magenta sashes that curve over each of her upper arms and attach to her shoulder pads. Gloria also wears short blue shorts with similar patterning to the front of her coat and black cuffs over white leggings and thigh-high black boots with golden soles, upturned golden toes, and three diagonal magenta lines near each cuff.
Gloria is more serious and blunt than her sister. She is confident in her skills and dissatisfied with weaker opponents, though not above praising good moves even if they are not up to her standards, but she was insulted when the Professor sends the Obelisk Force as backup in case they lost and she was eager to jump in to assist them. She can also be quite stubborn and impatient at times, but she also takes her job and mission very seriously, in comparison to both her sister and Mamoru Noro. Gloria dislikes disloyalty; chiding both her sister and Mamoru for supporting Yuya Sakaki during his Duel against Aster Phoenix for different reasons. After her defeat by Yuya and Shay she shows interest in Yuya's Dueltaining, but unlike her sister Grace she tries to hide it.
After hearing Mamoru's report that claimed to have detected Pendulum Summoning, the Professor assigned Gloria and her sister Grace to go to the Xyz Dimension with the mission of defeating the Lancers. While walking through Heartland, Gloria and Grace found Sayaka and mistaking her for a Lancer, prepared to bring her back as a present for Aster and Mamoru. When Allen arrived to protect Sayaka, Gloria and Grace challenged them to a Tag-Team Duel. Gloria Tribute Summoned "Amazoness Queen" but was unable to destroy "Ruffian Railcar" because of "Construction Train Signal Red". During the Duel, Gloria wondered why Allen and Sayaka didn't use Pendulum Summoning, and Grace suspected that they were underestimating them. After "Fairy Cheer Girl" failed to destroy Amazoness Queen" by battle, Gloria and Grace realized Allen and Sayaka were not their targets and must be from the Resistance, before revealing that they were the Tyler sisters. When Allen used the effect of "Heavy-Armored Train Iron Wolf" to attack the Tyler sisters directly, they explained that the effect of "Liger" would negate the attack. Gloria then Special Summoned "Amazoness Swords Woman" after Grace used "Amazoness Substitution" to change the attack of "Iron Wolf" to "Amazoness Swords Woman". Just as the effect of "Swords Woman" was about to force Allen to take the damage the Tyler twins would have taken, Sayaka used "Fairy Rail" to turn the damage into ATK for "Cheer Girl", to the sisters' surprise. Gloria then Fusion Summoned "Amazoness Empress" and used "Liger" to attack "Cheer Girl", with the effect of "Empress" inflicting piercing damage. Gloria dealt the final blow with "Empress", defeating Allen and Sayaka. The twins prepared to seal them into cards until Gong and Sylvio arrived. When they learned Gong and Sylvio were Lancers, Gloria and Grace entered into another Tag-Team Duel.
After defeating Gong and Sylvio, Gloria and Grace spotted Yuya and Shay arriving. They thought Shay was a scared Resistance member who fled when he recognized their "Amazoness" Decks until Yuto through Yuya) told them things would've been different if they were there. The Tyler sisters told them not to overestimate themselves. The Tyler sisters challenged them to a Tag-Team Duel and Gloria activated "Quiet Life" and Fusion Summoned "Amazoness Empress". When Yuya Pendulum Summoned, she activated "Amazoness Hall" to gain LP from Yuya and Shay Special Summoned monsters ATK. Gloria told them they ordered by the Professor to eliminate the Lancers. The Tyler sisters gained more LP Shay when Pendulum-Xyz Summoned "Raidraptor - Rise Falcon", but while they were surprised by the effect of "Rise Falcon" they were able to protect their monsters from destruction with their effects. Grace admitted that Shay was above average for a Resistance member but Gloria claimed that their effect was for naught. She then activated "Amazoness Hot Spring", gaining back the LP they lost and "Amazoness Magic Mirror", to prevent further battle damage. Gloria attacked "Rise Falcon" with "Liger" but Shay ranked it up into "Raidraptor - Blaze Falcon", though Gloria was able to destroy it. When their LP surpassed 10,000, the Tyler sisters started to get annoyed with the Lancers and told them to surrender already. When Yuya activated "Miracle Rocket Show" and "Smile World" they were surprised by their effects. Even when Yuya and Shay used "Rise Falcon" and "Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon's" effects to weaken "Empress" and "Liger", Gloria pointed out that the damage would still be negated. However, Yuya used the last effect of "Miracle Rocket Show" to inflict damage to the sisters equal to the battle damage that was reduced to 0. Though defeated, Gloria and Grace were amazed by the Duel.
When the Obelisk Force challenged the Lancers to a Duel, Gloria and Grace learned from Mamoru that the Professor sent them in case they lost. Gloria was shocked, but Grace admitted they did lose. Gloria asked Grace if she wasn't frustrated, but she didn't care as she wanted to see Yuya's Dueltaining. Gloria wondered whether they should join the Duel, but Grace told her the Obelisk Force wouldn't lose easily. Grace was impressed by Yuya's counters, but Gloria asked her if this was really the time. When the Obelisk Force Fusion Summoned "Chaos Ancient Gear Giant", Gloria wondered if they were trying kill them by bringing it out. When Kite Tenjo arrived and saved Yuya from "Chaos Giant's" attack, Gloria recognized him as the Duelist with a bounty on his head. She was surprised when Kite defeated the Obelisk Force and Aster Phoenix arrived with a squad to defeat Yuya.
Gloria tried to tell Aster that they were personally ordered to deal with the Lancers only to be silenced. Gloria watched Aster's Duel with Yuya, but wanted to assist the squad Dueling Kite. However, Grace was too entranced by the Duel. After Kite defeated the squad, Gloria criticized Mamoru for letting the Lancers escape. She was displeased when Yuya Fusion Summoned "Brave-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" and when Mamoru was pleased with Yuya defeating Aster, she caught him siding with the enemy. After Aster's counterattack, Gloria believed that it was over for Yuya, but Grace claimed that he would entertain them more. Yuya was able to save himself, and Gloria asked Mamoru whether or not he was pleased with Yuya's defeat when he thought it was over. She noted that the combo of "Destiny HERO - Dystopiaguy" and "Urban Demise" wouldn't be defeated easily. She wonder why Yuya would attack with "a weak monster", Grace told her its part of his Dueltaining. Once Yuya's LP reached 100, Gloria claimed that he was on the edge of a cliff. She caught Mamoru siding with Yuya again when Yuya activated "Smile World" again. Grace was happy to see the card, but Gloria just commented that Yuya was using the card again. When Mamoru thought Aster couldn't beat "Laugh Maker", Gloria reminded him about the "Urban Demise" combo. Yuya brought back "Brave-Eyes" to attack and Gloria noted that Aster couldn't use the "Urban Demise" combo since the effect of "Dystopia" could only be used once per turn. She watched as Yuya defeated Aster, annoyed that the Lancers kept defeating them. She was worried about the Professor finding out, but Mamoru reassured her that he had called in reinforcements.
To her and everyone's surprise, Aster defended Yuya as he now shares his belief that Dueling is not a tool for conflict but instead to bring happiness to people, going as far as discarding the mantle that signified him as Commander-in-Chief, showing his willingness to betray the Professor. To make her shocked even further, her sister thought that Aster's decision to betray Duel Academy was cool, prompting Gloria to ask did she also intending to become the Lancers' ally. Grace corrected Gloria's statement to be Yuya's ally and pointed out the fact that Gloria was also charmed by Yuya's Dueltaining, flustering Gloria. Under Grace's urging to be honest, Gloria and her sister also decided to join Yuya. The Resistance's arrival and Aster's speech forced Mamuro to surrender and the Duel Academy soldiers to follow Aster's plan to rebuild the Xyz Dimension.
Now allied with both the Resistance and Lancers, Gloria, her sister, and other former members of Duel Academy helped the refugees in the Resistance's hideout by distributing foods, medical supplies, and rebuilding residential houses for free to atone for what they have done. Gloria and her sister helped in making and distributing foods, making Gloria questioned why she has to do this, to which Grace answered that making people happy is part of Entertainment, so they should think about it as a training.
Following the battle against Zarc, Gloria, Grace, Mamoru, and Aster appeared during Yuya and Dennis McField's Duel. Gloria believed Dennis had won when he used the effect of "Performage Trapeze High Magician" but Grace reminded her that Yuya would go for an Action Card. She and Grace noticed three kids who wanted to watch the Duel, and Gloria suggested that they go up front to watch it. Gloria noted that she could see Yuya's victory when Yuya weakened "Trapeze High Magician", but expected Dennis to use the effect of "Trapeze High Magician" again to protect himself. She applauded at the end of the Duel after Yuya won. Gloria watched Yuya's Duel against Jack Atlas with Grace, Mamoru, Aster, Kite, Allen, and Sayaka. She also watched Yuya and Declan's Action Duel. Gloria was happy when Yuya won both Duels and was sent to the Pendulum Dimension by Ray Akaba to witness her revival as Zuzu Boyle.
