Now Duel Monsters shall perish, and buried deep beneath its ashes will be you three and all the monsters and cards you hold so dear!
~ Paradox

Paradox is the main antagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D Bonds Beyond Time. He is a time traveler aiming change his destroyed future by killing Maximilian Pegasus.

The Paradox seen in the movie was an android replica given the memories of the real Paradox, who had died of old age before the events of the film. He is the only one of Z-one's comrades to not guard a Planetary Particle as he was defeated before then. Sherry LeBlanc replaces him as the third guard of a Planetary Particle.

He was voiced by Atsushi Tamura in Japanese and Sean Schemmel in English.


Paradox was one of mankind's last four survivors in an apocalyptic future, along with Z-one, Aporia and Antinomy. Unlike his fellow survivors, not much of his backstory prior to meeting the other survivors is shown.

At one point Paradox died of old age, followed soon by the other survivors except for Z-one. Z-one then built androids with the appearance and memories of the deceased survivors and sent them to the past with the goal of changing the apocalyptic future.

The android based after Paradox was given the mission to kill Maximillion Pegasus, as his death would cause Duel Monsters to be eliminated therefore the future would never be destroyed by it. Paradox traveled to the New Domino City, during Yusei Fudo's time. He interrupted a Turbo Duel between Yusei, Crow Hogan and Jack Atlas. Yusei has just Summoned "Stardust Dragon", but Paradox absorbed it into a blank card. He showed Yusei the corrupt card, when confronted, before vanishing through time again.

He traveled further back in time to Venice, during Jaden Yuki's time. Once there he started stealing cards from various classmates of Jaden, including Jesse Anderson's Rainbow Dragon. Causing massive destruction, Paradox attacked Jaden with "Cyber End Dragon" and "Rainbow Dragon". "Elemental Hero Neos" protected Jaden, so Paradox Summons "Stardust Dragon" to fight off "Neos". However, Yusei who has traveled back in time with help from the Crimson Dragon arrived and saved Jaden. Paradox left and jumped back in time again.

This time, Paradox visited an event where Pegasus is giving cards to young children, in Yugi Muto's time. Paradox used "Cyber End Dragon," "Rainbow Dragon" and "Stardust Dragon" to attack the area, killing many people, including Pegasus and Solomon Muto. Yusei and Jaden arrived in this time and recruit Yugi, who survived Paradox's attack to fight Paradox.

Yusei, Jaden and Yugi traveled back in time to exactly thirty minutes before Pegasus' event and confronted Paradox before he could attack the crowd again. He faced them in a 3-on-1 Duel. Paradox used "Malefic World" and his corrupt "Malefic" counterparts of existing monsters. Yusei, Jaden and Yugi managed to retrieve "Stardust Dragon" from him, and by combining it with their cards, they destroyed Paradox's "Malefic Truth Dragon" and won the Duel, which destroyed Paradox in the process.



  • Yugi Muto
  • Yami Yugi
  • Jaden Yuki
  • Yusei Fudo
  • Yubel


  • His name is derived from the concept of "paradox" in the theory of time. According to it, a paradox is created if the past is altered which then changes the future entirely. This references his mission of changing history by destroying the game of Duel Monsters to prevent his own terrible future from happening, which would have caused catastrophic and drastic changes to the future had he succeeded.
  • Paradox could have simply killed Pegasus easily prior to him ever visiting Egypt and meeting Shadi, thus inspiring him to create Duel Monsters.
    • The domino effect if he succeeded would have gone like this:
      • Without Duel Monsters the Legendary Dragons wouldn't have been able to help fight the Great Leviathan.
      • With no Egyptian God cards, the Pharoah wouldn't unlock his memory and stayed trapped in the puzzle.
      • Kaiba wouldn't found Duel Academy.
      • Ener-D would never get invented.
      • People born as a result of Duel Monsters bringing their parents together would cease to exist.
