See: Category:Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses characters

Most of the characters are based on characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and manga, but given names and/or roles to portray a historical figure. Some characters simply have the same or similar names as their anime/manga counterparts and aren't based on historical figures. For example, the character Bakura isn't based on a historical figure named Bakura.


Yami Yugi assumes the identity of the head of the Tudor dynasty, Henry Tudor, while Seto Kaiba represents the head of the Yorkist forces as Christian Rosenkreuz.

The player assumes the role of the Rose duelist, who has been summoned to aid the Lancastrians by Simon McMooran, a Scottish Druid at Stonehenge. However, Christian Rosenkreuz shows up and then the player decides which side he or she is going to be a part of. In order to get back home the player needs all 16 of the "Rose cards." 8 Red Rose cards are held by the Lancastrians and the 8 White Rose ones by the Yorkists.

The player can choose the Red Rose for the Lancastrians, or the player can choose the White Rose for the Yorkists. Each side has different opponents and different endings, but there is an option to restart the game after completion to travel the path you did not choose the first time round.

Gameplay greatly differs from the real life card game. A Deck contains a Deck leader which can have certain effects on the duel depending on its ranking. The Deck leader can move around the board like map and Summon monsters. Monsters can move around the board and attack enemy monsters and Deck Leaders when within one square of them. Victory is usually aquired by reducing the enemy Deck Leaders Life Points to 0. Although other win conditions exist.

The player choses their Deck Leader at the start of the game. Their starting Deck corresponds to the chosen Deck Leader.
