The Jokers are a series of creatures that are created by Joe Kirifuda under the help of Deckie.


They are creature spirits that often serve Joe in their daily life, but come with many flaws and quirks that they are sometimes very unreliable.


The Jokers are created when Deckie befriended Joe and Joe had him create a deck for him. The process of Deckie creating a card goes by the following:

  1. Joe creates a drawing of the creature.
  2. Joe sticks the drawing in Deckie's mouth and Deckie forcefully swallows it.
  3. Deckie does a Samba dance.
  4. Joe inserts a key into Deckie's rear hole.
  5. A creature appears from Deckie's mouth.

Deckie can also turn these creatures into cards when Joe shows him to the creature and Deckie emits a light. Using this, Joe makes an entire deck of Jokers. However, no jokers resembling Dragons can be made by Deckie as the fallout caused by Dormageddon X, Forbidden Armageddon in the previous season had wiped them out.

In order to make the Jokers spirits alive, hot water must be poured on the card. Therefore, Joe carries a canister of hot water just in case. However, in the creature world, rubbing the card or calling them was needed to make the Joker's come alive.

While they are of the Zero Civilization, unlike past Zero Civilization creatures, they have emotions and are friendly towards humans because they originated from the human world. In episode 15, it was revealed that the Jokers reside in another creature world planet far away from the main planet. In the anime, the planet is a paradise that has everything Joe desires as opposed to the increasingly harsh environments in other civilizations, while in the Manga, it is just a small grassland with a few creatures inside. It was also revealed that the Jokers celebrate holidays like Christmas and New Year.

Depending on the civilization lands that the Jokers were in, their abilities and properties of the specific task changes, which was proven as the food made by The Ramen and Chocolate House was unusually hotter than the ones made in the human world when in the Fire Civilization lands.

By gaining the mark of the civilization, Joe was able to create Jokers based by the mark of the civilization given. So far, Joe gained the Fire mark by fixing up Bad Brand. Also when Deckie consumes part of Kabutoki's horn, he's able to create Nature Civilization creatures.

Just like other creature spirits in Katta's Era such as Hamukatsu and Katsudon, when Jokers appear outside duels, they appear in 2D. In duels they appear in 3D CGI animation.

Jolly the Johnny

CV: 小林親弘 (Chikahiro Kobayashi)

The first Joker created by Joe. He was based on Joe's obsession with cowboy shows. However, when he was created, he started shooting in Joe's room and Joe has to convert him into a card in order to prevent further harm. He can speak only one sentence so far: "There's no second chance to pull the trigger, once is all!"

In episode 15, Johnny went off to find his horse, which results in his card being blank and a note left on the card itself, much to Joe's dismay. He returned to assist Joe in a true duel against Boltz. It is also shown to be capable of saying other sentences other than the aforementioned sentence. He can appear outside of duels in the human world to assist Joe. Due to the actions of the Darkness Civilization, Johnny witness the skies becoming dark and that the tide of the wind had changed.

Despite being Joe's main creature, Johnny has freedom of thought. This was shown during the Valentine's day duel as he refused to conduct a direct attack on Pyonko-Hime as she have a crush on him, even saying it in front of the group via the Duel Table screen. He also develops a rivalry with Joe's new dragon Joragon.

In a gag episode, it is revealed that under Pali Nights' clothing is a human-like body.


CV: 木島隆一 (Ryuichi Kijima)

A Jokers that appears as a red door that can take enemies away with his hands. Joe uses it to transport into various areas, but it has no ability to go back to the place where Joe originated and it also requests Joe to pay a price equal to the transport fees required to go the area.

The Ramen

CV: 佐々木拓真

While it makes delicious ramen, the ramens it makes use Limestay, Strange Stone, Deathmatch Beetle, Octopa, Sublime Knowledge and Zaessa, First Squad as ingredients, and if Joe eats all of its ramen, it gets extremely furious and will go as far as lashing against him. However, the Ramen grows back. Unfortunately, it is Vanilla and is thus useless in duels.

When Joe was in the Fire Civilization lands, the ramen that it made was unusually hotter than the regular ones.


CV: 髙坂篤志 (Atsushi Kousaka)

A Jokers that resembles a Shinto shrine connected to a table holding a crystal ball. It is capable of foretelling events and whereabouts of people, but it is extremely greedy and won't serve Joe unless he pays for its services. Therefore, Joe has to send out The Ramen to force it to do so for free. In a duel, it is a spell that can destroy all creatures equal or less than the cost of the Jokers in Joe's mana zone or battle zone as a Super Shield Trigger bonus, easily destroying swarms of low-cost creatures.


CV: 林大地

Baron Gelacho

CV: 鈴木 琢磨 (Takuma Suzuki)

Todai Sensei

CV: 櫻井 トオル (Tooru Sakurai)

A Jokers that is created by Joe in order to help him face a test. While claiming it has the knowledge of a professor from Tokyo University and forced Joe to study by tying him up on top of it, it is actually extremely dumb that Deckie answered a few questions and it answered something completely different. This has resulted in him not sleeping the whole night and failing the upcoming test along with his school bully Hunter and resulted in Lulu getting very mad at him.

When Duel Warrior I am reveals itself, Todai Sensei was summoned to take care of an unconscious Uraraka Momo.

Hakushon Mask

CV: 小林 親弘

It was used in Joe's duel against Pyonko-Hime by stopping her creatures from attacking as a Super Shield Trigger.

Chocolate House

A Jokers created by Joe in order to have free desserts. It appears as a house made of a wafer with Chocolate and Candies on top of it. However, it charges ridiculous prices for making them and it's prediction skills are very bad and thus it guesses candies that are only 10 yen as 10000 yen candies. It is also prone to running away. However, It was proved to be useful in mana acceleration in a duel.

When Joe was in the Fire Civilization lands, the desserts that it made was unusually hotter.


A Jokers that resembles a helmet with a helicopter propeller. Joe made him fly to the Desolate Ramen store, but it refused and made Joe dizzy instead when lifting him in the air. Then he asks Joe to draw Tenkuuoh which flies him to the ramen store. It was quite talkative about its own affairs to the point that Joe converts it into a card. It was proven incompatible to carry humans and objects around as it tends to spin the carried recipient and itself.

Tenkuuoh, Super Extreme Class

It was Johnny's horse. It was first drawn along with Johnny as a single card. In episode 15, Barrett ran away, prompting Johnny to search for it. It was given by Joe before his battle against Boltz. Barret has a different appearance since it was called back and mostly matches its own card artwork. It can be quickly summoned if the objectives are met and accelerate the summoning of other Jokers from the deck.

One of the Jokers that helps Joe in physical training. It was created when Keshikasu-Kun questions Deckie's abilities to create cards and helped inflate Keshikasu's underwear until it explodes. In a duel, it functions as a Neo Evolution creature that gives other creatures additional effects and extra power boost at the cost of being unable to cast spells.

Khan, Absolute Sound

CV: 高坂 篤志 (Atsushi Kousaka)

Gekishinoh, Super Z Class

A fire Joker that is drawn by Joe to rebuild his mother's store. However, as it was too big and might attract attention, Joe drew Caterpillar Master as an alternative. It acts as one of the finishers in a duel as a mass breaker.

After correcting its name, it gave a gift to Team Usagi, prompting them to duel against each other in a multi duel to see who will get the present.
