How To Play Turbo Duel Grand Prix

PvP matchmaking.PNG

For this event, particpation will lock you onto 5D's characters only, and all Duels for this event will be strictly PvP matches. As also mentioned, Duels under this event will be played under Turbo Duel rules.

Your Icon and your opponents will be based on your performance, but your starting placement will be based on your performance for the past 5 Seasons of Ranked Duels, as well as your placement during the most recent KC Cup.

An additional thing to note is that wins during the Turbo Duel Grand Prix count for collective Ranked wins, thus adding to the rewards for each win.

Turbo Duel Mechanics

PvP Turbo Duels.PNG

Turbo Duels play like a regular Duel, but there is a Speed Counter to take note of. Speed Counters are gained (up to a maximum of 12) whenever the following conditions are met:

Speed Counter Condition
+1 ~ +3 At the beginning of each Standby Phase
Bonus will increase by 1 each turn (max. 3)
+1 When you Normal Summon a Monster.
Special Summons and Flip Summons are not included.
+1 When you Synchro Summon a Monster

Gaining them will be extremely valuable, as you can spend your Speed Counters to activate the EX Skill Speed Spell , which is exclusive only to Turbo Duels in this event. This is completely separate to your character's equipped skill, so you are able to use both the equipped Skill and the EX Skill at the same time.

You can also activate each effect once per turn if you have enough Speed Counters to spend.

For this event, a select number of characters from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's has their own set of Speed Spells! Make sure to take into account each of ther abilities before jumping into a match!

Turbo Duel Grand Prix - Deck Watch

While this may be a 5D's-centric event, expect Decks that are normally not run with specific players or specific themes (specifially Synchro Summons) solely because of the event's PvP nature. Keep an eye out for these Decks that have been noted to appear frequently during Ranked matches.

Shooting Star Dragon

Deck Detail
Shooting Star Dragon Shooting Star Dragon
Rating: 44 /50
This deck has a wide variety of combinations to play around in terms of boss monsters, depending on the situation at hand. It revolves around Junk Synchron and the Shooting Star Road skill, opening the chance to Synchro Summon powerful monsters like Junk Archer, Junk Berserker and the titular Shooting Star Dragon as early as the first turn.

Blue-Eyes Lightsworn

Deck Detail
Blue-Eyes Lightsworn Blue-Eyes Lightsworn
Rating: 45 /50
The deck combines the sheer force of power seen from the Blue-Eyes decks, and the milling and searching prowess of the Lightsworn archtypes. It is a time bomb for both the user and the opponent; a powerfu deck that can last a short duel.

Red Nova Resonators

Deck Detail
Red Nova Resonators Red Nova Resonators
Rating: 47 /50
Getting Red Dragon Archfiend out to go for Red Nova Dragon is the Deck's gameplan. Going for an OTK via an unhindered direct attack is the main win condition, but there are other Synchro Monsters and Spell Cards to surprise the opponent with forms of control.


Deck Detail
Melodious Melodious
Rating: 45 /50
An unorthodox Fusion-based archetype that managed to get a massive boost thanks to the new wave of cards, Melodious Decks will have great control over the battlefield, especially in battle against Special Summoned monsters.


Deck Detail
Harpies Harpies
Rating: 44 /50
You want to try and put out your Cyber Slash Harpie Lady as quickly as possible. In order to achieve this, swarm the field with Harpie monsters. The Harpies themselves are a strong enough win condition that you don't need to focus on winning with your boss monster.


Deck Detail
Blue-Eyes Blue-Eyes
Rating: 45 /50
Blue Eyes is an agressive Deck that constantly places powerful monsters on the field to overwhelm your opponent.

Gimmick Puppet

Deck Detail

Rating: 42 /50
This Fusion Deck allows you to quickly summon different Masked HERO monsters that you can use to Fusion Summon from your Extra Deck.


Deck Detail
Chronomaly Chronomaly
Rating: 43 /50
Chronomaly focuses on the ability to Xyz Summon with ease through the ability to Special Summon its monsters one after another, and being able to match their levels through its effects. Rank 5 and Rank 6 monsters will be very much welcome in this archtype.

Gaia the Fierce Knight

Deck Detail
Galloping Gaia Galloping Gaia
Rating: 41 /50
Gaia can rush the field with very strong monsters without tributes, and has enough support to bring out powerful Fusion Monsters that can be summoned without the need of Polymerization.


Deck Detail
Yosenju Yosenju
Rating: 43 /50
All-out offense in one turn, get out of dodge literally moments later. The Yosenjus are known for their ability to constantly go in and out of the field, sometimes swarming the field to overwhelm the opponent. Not to mention, their focus on Level 4 monsters makes them prime candidates to have potent Rank 4 Xyz Monsters on the field at any given moment.

Six Samurais

Deck Detail
Six Samurais Six Samurais
Rating: 35 /50
Six Samurai Decks swarm the field with several aggressive cards that synergize well with each other.


Deck Detail
D/D/D Kings D/D/D Kings
Rating: 41 /50
A Deck that specializes in swarming the field with consecutive Special Summons to control the field, D/D uses nearly all the ways to Special Summon and is a great test to see how familiar a player is with each of them.
