This RP account has gone through many changes.


In the forty years he's been alive, Yuugi Mutou has done many things. Becoming the world's greatest player of Duel Monsters was, for a long time, his greatest accomplishment. However, when the creator of Duel Monsters, Pegasus J. Crawford, suddenly announced he was banning them due to the trouble they caused, Yuugi realized there was really nothing else he'd taken the time to develop in his life.

Sure, he had many game-related skills, but finding himself 22 years old, unmarried, and without anything save card games and knowing an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh to his name made him rethink his life. Luckily, Anzu Mazaki was there to help him. They realized they were far stronger together than apart, blah blah blah, and a few years down the road they got married.

Sadly, despite wanting to have a child with Anzu, their marriage began to crumble soon after Yuugi was hired to work in an important business location in Japan. Anzu had already decided to pursue her career as a dancer overseas and simply couldn't wait for Yuugi to continually let her down with failed attempts at arranging time to meet her. A long distance relationship, with little to no time for one another, simply didn't work for either of them. In the end, the two divorced despite loving one another very much.

Yuugi grew older and his work grew more and more tiring. His apartment was cleaned, his food was cooked and eaten, but nothing in his life brought him joy anymore. Everything was old and mundane. Everything was black and white. Nothing was vibrant. Nothing was happy. Every sunny day might as well have been cloudy.

At 41, living in a penthouse apartment with a small fortune does nothing for Yuugi as he finds himself unable to really decide what to spend his money on, let alone when to regain control of his life.

And then he was dragged into the DR.


Meeting so many strange and interesting variations of himself threw Yuugi for a loop, even driving him to temporarily change his name to avoid disturbing his own mother! Despite her being the much younger mother of his youth, she found no ill in him upon learning who he was and even welcomed him. Restoring Yuugi's faith in who he was were many people, including meeting a Bakura who seemed to think it pertenent to tell him to act more like himself. He met real Duel Monsters, child versions of himself who loved life and the many games that came with it, Atems galore... he even met his ex-wife!

And then, all at once, he was swept back to his dreary life. Unable to stand for it anymore, and having made a promise to his friends in the DR to right his life, Yuugi quit his desk job and took the money he'd saved to buy back the Kame Game store. He started it up again and managed to get in touch with friends, relatives, even his father, asking for help in reviving it.

He made up with his mother, inviting her to come live with him again as he cleaned up the game shop. She accepted this, wondering why he hadn't answered her many phonecalls and letters, having never truly been angry with him and finding his disappearance a tad fishy. Once this was done, the two of them managed to revive the old store, selling games from the new and the older days. His grandfather had insisted on tradition, but then again, he'd also been a sucker for some of the fad-toys like Monster Fighter from way back when.

In under five years, and at the age of 45, Yuugi Mutou was able to become well known again as the King of Games from his childhood, only in a somewhat more acceptable manner. As an apology to his grandfather, he'd help revive the store. As an apology to his mother, he'd continue the gaming business. As an apology to himself and to the Pharaoh who'd given him so much?

He'd start to play the game of life again...
And he wouldn't lose.
