Of the many stories and characters that have appeared throughout the franchise that is Yu-Gi-Oh!, it is the story of Yugi Moto and the ancient Egyptian Pharoah dwelling within his own head that usually sticks out the most for fans of the franchise. The protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, Yugi was a lot of fans' first introduction to the card battling franchise, mixing duels with magic as enemies and monsters from times long past were the focus of the day for each episode. With one of Yugi's most trusted duel monsters coming in the form of Dark Magician Girl, fans may be pleased to hear that a figure released years ago will be making a big return!
Dark Magician Girl is often played along with its titular benefactor in the Dark Magician, with Yugi normally calling out this pair during some dire circumstance. For a lot of Yugi Moto's battles, his duels were for keeps as combatants would sometimes be banished to the Shadow Realm should they be defeated. While Yugi's story has passed and the franchise has moved on to new locales and new protagonists, it's clear that the first phase of the franchise still holds a place in many Yu-Gi-Oh fans' hearts!
