Don't break into Yuya's memory without asking! I'm the one who protects him!

— Yugo to Ren[1]

Yugo is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga. He is one of the four personalities that share Yuya Sakaki's body.

Design

Appearance

Yugo looks almost the same as his anime counterpart: His face semi-identical to his counterparts save his navy blue hair with yellow bangs swept to the right and aqua-colored eyes. He wears a white jacket with red borders and yellow stripes on the sleeves, along with a white jumpsuit that has red, blue, and yellow stripes that meet in the center in a chevron pattern, white gloves, shoulder, elbow and knee pads, and white, red, and bluish-grey boots. Whenever he possesses Yuya or briefly emerges from him as a spirit, Yugo is wearing Yuya's gold and red lined white school jacket.

As a Turbo Duelist, Yugo rides a Duel Runner model called "TK2000PS".

Personality

Like his anime counterpart, Yugo is rather hot-headed and can lose sight of the big picture once he has sets his mind on something like being the best Turbo Duelist. But this can be detrimental to his performance, like nearly crashing when upset over Ren being more skilled with Duel Runner than he is. Among his counterparts, Yugo is the most dedicated to protecting Yuya even if it means sacrificing his own past to ensure Yuya's happiness.

Abilities

Like his counterparts, Yugo is able to control Solid Vision technology. In his case, he is able to materialize his Duel Runner via the Solid Vision system programmed in Yuya's Duel Disk. Yugo appears to have the highest pain tolerance among his counterparts as he was able to ride normal after the amount of damage done to their body by Sora, the damage severe enough that both Yuya and Yuri barely manage to stand.

Biography

History

Yugo is Turbo Duelist from twenty years in the future. According to Ren, Yugo was the city's Turbo Duel Champion. Before arriving in the past, he lived with his father Yusho Sakaki and his brothers YuyaYuri, and Yuto. At Yuya's birthday, Yugo was participating in a tournament with the intent to seize the winning trophy and give it to Yuya as a birthday gift. However, the tournament was stopped when Duel Monsters card Genesis Omega Dragon went on a rampage after his father's friend, Leo Akaba, materialized its power for his experiment. This resulted with the beginning of destruction of the world. Under their father's instruction, Yugo and his brother intended to go to his lab to meet him using the escape pods that will send them directly to the lab. En route back to their house where the escape pods were, Yuya pushed his brothers out of the way from a falling debris, rendering him unconscious so Yugo had to carry him. When they arrived, three of the escape pods were destroyed by falling debris. Yugo, Yuri, and Yuto decided to place their unconscious younger brother into the pod, saving Yuya's life. Yugo and his two brothers spent their last moments together by sharing a meal and throw roses while wishing Yuya happy birthday before they perished and then the time was regressed through a phenomenon called World Illusion that Yusho enacted using a portion of G.O.D's power.

However, due to yet unknown reason, the impact of World Illusion allowed Yugo and his two brothers' spirits to survive and lived inside Yuya. The impact also caused Yuya unable to remember the full story save that his father sent him back in time to find G.O.D, including his relation to his older brothers whom he thought are his alternate personalities created from the impact of World Illusion that has messed up his mind. Yuto, Yuri, and Yugo decided to play along with Yuya's belief and erased all memories regarding them as to not make Yuya sad for their deaths. They then spent the first six months after arriving in the past to look for any clue about G.O.D before finally hacking into Leo Corporation.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V

Yugo was first seen riding around Yuya's mind with Yuri while hunting down memories, Yugo assuring Yuri that Yugo would cover for them if Yuya starts to questioned their absence. Yugo then finds a crystalized shard of Yuya's memories, shattering it while he and Yuri both agree that it is for the best Yuya does not remember them as they were. At the same time, after explaining his three other "personalities" to Yuzu and Shuzo, Yuya questioned Yuto on where Yugo and Yuri were since he hasn't seen them of late. Yuto covers for his counterparts by claiming they were probably going on a tour or something, with Yuya assuming Yugo and Yuri are having a road trip in his mind.[2]

Following Yuya's duel with Sora, Yugo takes over Yuya's body the moment he starts passing out while materializing his Duel Runner. After seeing Yuzu and asking if she's Yuya's girlfriend, he spirits he back their hideout. From there, contemplated their next move with his counterparts, Yugo attempts to cheer up Yuri as he blames himself for letting Yuya talk him into dealing with Sora. But Yuri provokes Yugo into an heated argument when the former tells him that his encouragement is making him feel worse, Yugo lashing out at Yugo when he tries to calm them down. The trio's prattle ceases when Yuri notices someone is hacking Yuya's mind via his Duel Disk, Yugo deciding to deal with the intruder after they failed to prevent him from entering Yuya's mind on his own.[3]

Once inside, Yugo encounters Ren and proceeds to Turbo Duel him for answers. Yugo managed to take the first turn, but Ren proceeds to overwhelm the youth with his skills and what the older Duelist considered not one of his best Duel Runners. Yugo's obsession to not be outdone caused him to get reckless before he ran off course and off a cliff.[1] Luckily, Yuya's conscious the course so Yugo can safely land on another part of the track. Though Yugo appeared to have placed himself as a major disadvantage when activated a trap to prevent Synchro Summon while Ren activated a spell to prevent non-Synchro monsters, Yugo used his bond with Yuya to Pendulum Summon "Clearwing Fast Dragon", whose status as a Synchro/Pendulum monster allowed him to win. However, as Ren droved off as he got the confirmation that Yuya possesses the Adam Factor, Yugo realizes the Duel stirred up Yuya's memories of the two of them as children. Breaking down while seeing the one memory Yuya must never see appear, Yugo has his dragon quickly destroy the memories.[4]

The strain of the Turbo Duel got to Yugo, telling Yuto and Yuri everything he knew about Ren to them before he takes a rest to recuperate. Following Yuya's duel with Reiji Akaba, being only one of Yuya's counterparts to not participate, Yugo began feel the effects of the Adam Factor slowly disconnecting him from Yuya. Thus while they fall off the grid following their hideout being destroyed, Yugo, Yuto, and Yuri train Yuya in an underground waterway to better hone their skills. Yuto and Yuri both note Yugo being hard on Yuya to master riding a D-Wheel. When asked about his recent behavior, Yugo reveals to being due to the Adam Factor inside Yuya is starting to interfere with their presence and wishes to teach Yuya what he knows in case they are not able to help him.[5] Yuya would later call out Ren, with Yugo quickly taking over his body to settle things with the masked man.[6] But Yugo is forced to have Yuya continue the duel in his place when their connection is disrupted.[7]

Relationships

Yuya Sakaki

Yuya is Yugo's younger brother. Ever since they were children, they are close and supported each other like the former cheering Yugo whenever he was turbo dueling. Following his death that led his spirit to live inside Yuya's mind, Yugo reluctantly acts to suppress Yuya's memory alongside their brothers to spare him from sorrow of knowing his older brothers' death. During such an influx of memories he manages to deal with, Yugo expressed that he could not forgive anyone who would make Yuya sad. Yuya become Yugo's main motivation to continue fighting. Remembering Yuya's cheer was enough to stir Yugo's spirit when he was close on giving up and reaffirming his determination to always protect his younger brother.

Yuto and Yuri

Yugo has a somehow friendly relation with his older brothers, though he is prone to argue with Yuri while considering Yuto to be loud and annoying. They also have brotherly rivalry over Yuya's affection, competing to get Yuya's attention the most at his birthday. Regardless, the three of them cares for one another, showing concern when either one of them is in trouble. They would work together despite their differences, especially when Yuya is involved as the three of them shared the same determination to always protect their younger brother.

Yuzu Hiragi

Yuzu is the first person Yugo met since arriving to her timeline who was not with Leo Corp and became one of Yuya's closest friends, considering her a friend as consequence. However, he ignored Yuzu's pleas to consider Yuya's wellbeing when he proceeds to duel Ren a second time. After first meeting her, Yugo confined to Yuto and Yuri that Yuzu vaguely resembles someone from their past.

Ren

Yugo and Ren's relationship is a rivalry based on the latter's attempt to hack into Yuya's mind, Ren revealing he knows who Yugo was when he was a separate being from Yuya and outclassing him with a Duel Runner unable to showcase his full skills. Since then, Yugo was bent on settling things with Ren in the physical world. But the reason for Ren's in-depth knowledge of Yugo is that he is the youth's descendant, Yuya noting the strong resemblance between the two when Ren unmasked himself.

Deck

Like his anime counterpart, Yugo runs a Speedroid Deck focusing on Synchro Summon.

Like his other counterparts, Yugo's Deck has been influenced by Yuya, evolving his "Clearwing Fast Dragon" into a Pendulum Monster.
