Exclusive Story: The Legend of Chaos

Remember how a couple of days ago I said that I was working on a surprise? It is now completed. Up on the page list you will notice a link called “Exclusive Story: The Legend of Chaos.” That will bring to a new page with a story not published on fanfiction.net, a story exclusively for you guys. The story tells the legend of the first Lord of Chaos and the First Chaos War, the events which are alluded to in the first half of Season 3: Guardian of the Balance. Enjoy.

In other news, I start writing Season 4 tonight, so stay tuned.

Until next time, duel on!

Sorry…

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here, and I’m sorry about that. I’ve been pretty busy lately and haven’t had as much time as I would have liked to have had to type. However, I am working on a pretty exciting surprise for you guys now, and it should be done in the next two or three days. After that I’ll go straight to writing Season 4.

Until then, duel on!

Wyrms

Just a little piece of new to share, the new type, Genryuu, has been confirmed to be called the Wyrm-Type in America. For those who don’t know, a Wyrm is a variant of the mythological European dragon. It typically has no limbs or wings, but that doesn’t seem to apply to the monsters of this type. With this announcement, I have updated the Special Episode with this new information, replacing all references of Genryuu with Wyrm.

May the Force be With You…

For those who don’t know, today is May 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day (Get it, May the 4th be with you?). Two of my favorite things in the world are Yu-Gi-Oh and Star Wars, so I always love it when I find Star Wars references in Yu-Gi-Oh. Some of you readers who pay close attention might have noticed that one of the cards I made was called Chaos Relic: Twilight Sabers of Glintos, that was no coincidence. Anyways, I’d like to talk about three real cards that contain Star Wars references.

LightswornSabre-AP05-EN-C-UE

“This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster, an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.”
―Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi

The first time I saw this card, I was laughing for several minutes afterwords. It is such a blatantly obvious reference, its shocking that Lucas Films (or Disney) doesn’t sue. It even looks like an elegantly designed lightsaber. I don’t have much to say about the card’s effect itself. It’s a fairly bland card, if not for the Star Wars reference.

“You don’t know the power of the Dark Side.”

―Darth Vader

I’m sure a lot of you are thinking, what does this completely random Alien card have to do with Star Wars? The answer is all in the Japanese name. This card in Japan is known as Alien Vader. That’s right, in Japan, this card is named after the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader. Take a good look at his design. His head appears as if its some sort of helmet, with a breathing apparatus attached to it. In fact, the entire monster’s body looks as if it is covered in some sort of armor. This monster’s effect is interesting and actually has a funny story behind it. Back when this card, along with a few others, came out in the pack Cyber Dark Impact, Konami wanted to push effects like these, but the problem was that no one in the Yu-Gi-Oh community wanted to worry about tracking what zone their monsters where in, so this card never saw any usage.

ForceResonator-LC5D-EN-C-1E

“So be it… Jedi!”

―Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious

That’s right, this little guy is the Emperor reborn as a Yu-Gi-Oh card. Just look at it. He uses Force Lightning in the exact same manner as Palpatine and he wears black robes. Not to mention, his name is Force Resonator. Another point of interest is the orb behind him. This may be stretching things a little bit, but it vaguely resembles Darth Vader’s helmet.

Until next time, may the Force be with you…always…
