Commander Koda, known as Kodo Kinomiya in the Japanese version, is a participant in the Fortune Cup. In the Japanese version, he was also known as the "Duel Profiler".

He wins his first match against the Yliaster plant, Professor Frank, but only because Frank threw the match so he could get into the Consolation Game. His opponent in the semifinals is Akiza Izinski. During the duel, Kodo attempts to throw Akiza off by revealing images of her past 16 years, only to lose. In the dub, Koda was given a more personal reason for wanting to defeat Akiza; he, along with Akiza, were students at the Duel Academy from GX, where she, a Slifer Red student, defeated and humiliated him, an Obelisk Blue student (despite this, the dub shows a flashback to their duel, in which the two are clearly wearing uniforms of The New Domino City Duel Academy). He also works as a detective in the dub and has a warped idea that "justice is revenge".


Opponent Outcome
Professor Frank Win
Akiza Izinski Lose

Koda plays a Profile Deck, which focuses on the mentality of his opponent. By researching information about his opponent, his deck changes to match against theirs, similar to how Bastion Misawa builds his decks. During his duel against Akiza, many of his cards are based on gaining Life Points or dealing Burn damage, making it so he rarely has to actually battle. He also employs cards themed around guesswork and knowing what his opponent will play before they play it.
