Yami Bakura is a character in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. This is a video game depiction of Yami Bakura, a character from the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime.

He appears in the "Fear the Deck of Terror! The Destiny Board of Doom" event, where players collect 10-sided dice to challenge him to a duel, similar to Maximillion Pegasus' Toon World event. He can additionally be unlocked as a playable character, and similar to Yugi, events where he appears in Duel World as an NPC have also been scheduled.

As an event opponent he has the special Skill "Destiny Board of Doom," letting him start with Dark Necrofear in his Graveyard and Destiny Board active. Prior to the 1.7 update this applied to Dueling him at any level as opposed to only Level 40 and up, and he would additionally always go first, but this was removed.


When Yugi's classmate Bakura was possessed by the evil spirit within the Millennium Ring, he transformed into Yami Bakura. He is merciless and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal. Yami Bakura's Occult Deck focuses on Fiend and Zombie-Type cards.
