Skills are special effects that each player can only use once per Duel. They may possess a number of effects, like improving a draw, increasing one's LP or enhancing a monster's ATK. They can be used during either player's turn. Skills appear to be procedurally-generated, though rather than being generated randomly like they would be in real world video games, they appear to be generated to fit a Duelist's deck and/or Dueling style. As seen with Playmaker and Revolver, multiple Duelists can share a given skill.
Skills can be hacked to do previously unheard-of abilities, such as the Double Draw skill used by a Knight of Hanoi.
The Duel Links Legend Deck Guide listed certain Skills as suggestions for casual play using the Legend Decks in the guide.
List of Skills
|This article is currently incomplete. Needs: Missing in-game skills exclusive to various characters from Duel Links; see https://ygorganization.com/lmaotea/ for starting point. Don't some characters also have additional skills exclusive to special timed events?|
(ダブルドロー, Daburu Dorō)
|Unnamed Knight of Hanoi||The user draws 2 cards for their normal draw during their Draw Phase.|
(ストームアクセス, Sutōmu Akusesu)
|If the user has 1000 or less LP, the user randomly obtains a Link Monster from a nearby Data Storm and adds it to their Extra Deck. The more intense the Data Storm, the stronger the obtained Link Monster will be. The obtained card can then be materialized in the real world with the proper equipment.|
|Go Onizuka||The user Special Summons all "Gouki" monsters that were destroyed by battle this turn.|
(トリックスターフロード, Torikkusutā Furōdo)
|Blue Angel||During the opponent's turn, the user discards 1 "Trickstar" card to make the opponent draw until they have 3 cards in their hand.|
(シークレットキュア, Shīkuretto Kyua)
|Ghost Girl||The user excavates cards from their Deck, sending non-Monster Cards to the Graveyard until a Monster Card is revealed. That monster is added to the hand and both players gain LP equal to that monster's ATK.|
