Skill (スキル, Sukiru) is a special rule characteristic of Speed Duels featured in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links and the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime.

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS

In Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, Skills are special effects that each player can activate at any time and during either player's turn.[1] Skills appear to be procedurally-generated that generally are designed to fit a Duelist's deck and/or Dueling style. They may possess a number of effects, like improving a draw, increasing one's LP or enhancing a monster's ATK.[2]

Regardless how many Skills a duelist may have obtained, they can only perform a Skill once per duel. As seen with Playmaker and Varis, multiple Duelists can share a given skill. While normally this ability is reserved for Speed Duels, as shown from Bohman, an advanced enough hacking can be used to perform a Skill even during a Master Duel.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

In Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, each character can assign one skill to each of their Decks. Non-player characters normally do not use skills, but they occasionally do during special events.

Each character can unlock 3 skills by leveling up. Characters can also obtain skills as drops when defeating Legendary Duelists. One Skill, Joey Wheeler's Fields of the Warriors, is obtained from Mission Bingo.

Skills that a character has already obtained from a previous drop can still be dropped, but they are automatically converted into 15 Gems instead (they do not get a different skill).

Along with the game's Forbidden and Limited lists, skill effects are subject to change to maintain balance.

The Duel Links Legend Deck Guide listed certain Skills as suggestions for casual play using the Legend Decks in the guide.
