Yuya and Jaden have been compared a lot and I can certainly see why. Both of them started out as very enthusiastic duelists who just played the game to have a good time. Both of them were then forced to meet their inner darkness when villains took their friends hostage and increased the stakes. Jaden conquered his inner darkness and continues to use it to fight the good fight and Yuya appears to be taking the same path. Yuya has even learned how to fusion summon as he follows in the legendary hero’s footsteps. Yuya’s done a good job, but he’ll never surpass the original fusion master. Still, he’ll put up a good fight and will provide a nice show for the fans. Jaden wins.
