Téa Gardner

In Yu-Gi-Oh!, the childhood friend of Yugi Muto and Joey Wheeler, Téa Gardner (Amy Birnbaum / Maki Saito) is an amateur duelist and aspiring ballerina. She is a sweet-natured girl who fiercely advocates for the bonds of friendship, and most of her dueling deck is comprised of cute cards and cards around the topic of faith. She is involved in a rather odd love triangle involving herself, Yugi, and Yami Yugi.

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.
