Trivia

  • Ishizu Ishtar, Tristan Taylor, and Officer Tetsu Trudge are the only Legendary Duelists who do not have a cutscene for when they Summon their ace monster(s).
    • However, Trudge is the only one who does have an ace card: Goyo Guardian, whereas Tristan and Ishizu don't have any.
  • Tristan's dialogue for Acrobat Monkey and the monkey sound effects he makes are references to how he was turned into a similar looking robot monkey during the Virtual World arc in the anime.
