Joey Wheeler

Joey Wheeler (Wayne Grayson / Hiroki Takahashi) is one of the main protagonists in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, and is one of the close friends of Yugi Muto and Téa Gardner. He is also a love interest for one of the gang’s Duel Monsters rivals, Mai Valentine. In the English dub, Joey speaks with a very noticeable New York accent that accentuates his tough-guy attitude and demeanor. Despite this, he is quite affectionate towards his friends and family.

Mai Valentine

In Yu-Gi-Oh!, a beautiful and largely arrogant duelist, Mai Valentine (Haruhi Terada / Megan Hollingshead) is a rival of Yugi Muto (Shunsuke Kazama / Dan Green) and his friends. She cons and seduces men out of money and victories with her faux-psychic powers and her Harpies deck. After spending more time with the protagonists of the series, however, she becomes less cold and hesitant to the idea of having actual friends.
