Main characters

Names are in Western order, with the surname after the given name. The name used in the English-language versions of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX follows the original Japanese name.

Unlike the English-language editions of the original manga series, the English-language Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga uses the English-language anime names employed by 4Kids Entertainment [1]. Characters exclusive to the manga, such as Mr. Ryuga, use their original names.

  • Judai Yuki (遊城十代 Yūki Jūdai) / Jaden Yuki - Jaden Yuki is the main character of the series who lives in the worst dormitory of Duel Academy, Slifer Red. He receives the Winged Kuriboh card, which becomes his spirit partner, from Kouyou Hibiki. He uses Elemental Heroes(Nature Theme) in his deck, his strongest card being Elemental Hero Terra Firma.
  • Asuka Tenjouin (天上院明日香 Tenjōin Asuka) / Alexis Rhodes - Alexis Rhodes is a strong female duelist of the Obelisk Blue dormitory. She plays an ice themed deck.
  • Sho Marufuji (丸藤翔 Marufuji Shō) / Syrus Truesdale - Syrus Truesdale is a Slifer Red student and a friend of Jaden's. Syrus looks to Jaden as an "older brother," and therefore calls Jaden "Bro"(Aniki in the Japanese versions). Syrus uses a roid deck
  • Jun Manjoume (万丈目準 Manjōme Jun) / Chazz Princeton - Chazz Princeton is a strong duelist from the Obelisk Blue dormitory. He greatly dislikes Jaden, though as the series continues, they come to a truce of sorts. He plays various decks. In the manga, he was given a past as a dueling prodigy, and he plays a dragon deck, his main card being Light and Darkness Dragon.
  • Cronos de Medici (クロノス・デ・メディチ Kuronosu de Medichi) / Vellian Crowler - Vellian Crowler is the professor of the Obelisk dormitory. At first, he holds a grudge against Jaden who he believes to be a slacker, and tries to get rid of him on many occasions.
  • Daichi Misawa (三沢大地 Misawa Daichi) / Bastion Misawa - Bastion Misawa is an analytical duelist of Ra Yellow. He plays a Yokai deck. In the manga it's hinted he has somewhat of a crush on Alexis Rhodes because he dueled Jaden to get her phone number only to recieve it after his defeat.
