Bastion Misawa, known as Daichi Misawa (三沢 大地, Misawa Daichi) in the Japanese version, is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga.

Biography[edit]

Bastion Dueled against Chazz Princeton many times in tournaments and lost each time.

Bastion got the highest score in the Duel Academy entrance exam and was placed in Ra Yellow. The integrity of Chazz Princeton's direct placement in Obelisk Blue was question by other students, due to Bastion scoring higher than him.[2] However having faced Chazz many times before, Bastion respected his skill and believed that he deserved to be in Obelisk Blue.

Bastion took an interest in Jaden Yuki, who despite his Slifer Red ranking, managed to beat Vellian Crowler in a Duel during the entrance exam and had broken Chazz's winning streak, the latter of which was an honor Bastion had hoped to claim himself. While studying Jaden and Chazz's Duel in the video room, he was visited by Alexis Rhodes, who was not surprised to find him researching the Duel and asked if he was as surprised as everyone else that Jaden won. Bastion admitted that he knew it was possible and that he regretted not being the one to end Chazz's streak. He took at as his next goal to beat the person, who beat Chazz. With Bastion being the top player in Ra Yellow and head of his class, Alexis was interested in hearing Bastion's analysis of Jaden. Bastion considered him to be a jack-of-all trades and noted that most of his cards were "Elemental Hero"-related, but of scattered Types, but the tricky thing was his ability to draw the right card at the right time, allowing him to use the element of surprise. Bastion envied him and contemplated that he may be a genius. Alexis jokingly remarked "A careful analysis by Bastion Misawa the philosopher is concludes that... Jaden is a genius".[3]

As Alexis parted ways with Bastion, she received a phone call from Jaden, who was looking to borrow the Battle City DVD. Bastion, who had a crush on her and did not have her number, roared in frustration when she left the room. He spotted Jaden soon afterwards and asked how he knew Alexis' phone number. Jaden explained that Alexis sometimes lends him reference material and she once could not find him when she needed something immediately returned, so they exchanged phone numbers to make things easier. This further frustrated Bastion, since it was Jaden's callousness that led him to getting her number. Jaden then received a text from Alexis, which drove Bastion despair. He overheard that Jaden was looking to borrow Alexis' Battle City DVD, which she had currently lent to someone else. Since he had both the Battle City and Duelist Kingdom DVDs, Bastion offered to lend them, if Jaden could defeat him in a Duel. Jaden was annoyed at first, until Bastion asked if he was afraid. When Jaden asked what Bastion got for winning, without thinking Bastion shouted loudly, within earshot of other students, that Jaden would give him Alexis' contact info. As Jaden and Syrus Truesdale roared with laughter, Bastion grabbed them in headlocks and dragged them away to somewhere with less people.[4]

Bastion and Jaden went to the grove outside the Slifer Red dormitory to begin their Duel.[5] Jaden offered to give Bastion Alexis' contact information without Dueling, but Bastion asked where the fun was in that and that he would not accept having Jaden just give it to him. He mentioned that he was also interested in Dueling the person who beat Chazz and Jaden admitted that Bastion, as Ra Yellow's number one player, was also on his list.[6]

During the Duel, Bastion called a time out, when he learned that Syrus also had Alexis phone number. Following her call with Syrus, Alexis soon showed up, making Bastion anxious. Jaden ultimately won and Bastion considered that it may have been due to luck, but conceded that Jaden was a cut above him in tactics and deserving of the win.[7]

When Jaden asked Bastion for the DVD, Alexis assumed that they were Dueling over her Battle City DVD. Jaden told her that Bastion also had the Duelist Kingdom DVD. When she asked if she could borrow it, Jaden suggested that she and Bastion exchange phone numbers to make things easier. After doing so, Bastion went to his dormitory to get the DVD and invited Alexis to come, leaving Jaden to whimper about how he was supposed to get to see it first since he won.[8]

Bastion voted for Alexis in the Miss Duel Academy contest and was confident that she would make it to the finals and asked if Jaden voted too, reminding him that every vote counts. When Jaden decided to leave before the winner was announced, Bastion was surprised and told him he was missing the best part and believed Alexis was about to win. However Alexis tied first with Seika Kohinata and Jaden, being the only student who had not voted, was forced to Duel Alexis to determine how his vote was to be cast.[9] Bastion watched the Duel and cheered when Alexis was declared the winner.[10]

While Jaden and Syrus were reading about Syrus' brother, Zane Truesdale in the Duel Academy News, Bastion commented on how Zane and Atticus Rhodes where studying abroad and how nice that must be. Jaden asked why Syrus calls him "bro", when he has a real brother. Bastion and Alexis both expressed interest in hearing the answer too, but were interrupted by Vellian Crowler, who had mistakenly believed Syrus' scored 0 in a test. He threatened to expel Syrus, unless he could defeat Jaden in a Duel. Bastion figured in that case, Jaden could just let Syrus win, until Crowler said that due to his poor exam results, Jaden would have his Deck confiscated if he lost. When Syrus lost and Midori Hibiki pointed out that he had not actually scored a 0, Bastion danced with Jaden, Alexis and Syrus in celebration.[11][12]

Bastion expressed interest in participating in the Zane Truesdale homecoming tournament and Jaden offered to be his first opponent. Bastion declined, since he hoped to advance to the finals and thought it would be too risky to face Jaden in the preliminaries. However he still intended to face Chazz, regardless of how risky it may be. Alexis agreed with Bastion's aversion of facing Jaden at an early stage and said she would not like to face either of them. Bastion, Alexis, Jaden and Syrus then made an agreement to try and meet in the finals.[13]

In the preliminary stages of the tournament, Bastion sought out Chazz as an opponent. Chazz admitted to have been looking forward to them Dueling again, as much as Bastion had been. Bastion said that he had hoped to be the one to break Chazz's winning streak and Chazz asked if he was now looking down on him for losing to a Slifer Red student. However Bastion confessed that he had also lost to Jaden.[13] Bastion lost to Chazz, but won enough Duels to advance.

He wins against Reggie MacKenzie in the first round of the finals, although only because she held back in the last turn, and Duels Jaden. Despite how much he prepared, Jaden manages to defeat him. During the mini-tournament held between Duel Academy's students and the Overseas Champions, Bastion teams with Alexis to defeat Adrian Gecko and Jesse Anderson. Later, Bastion loses to James Crocodile Cook and suffers the effects of a Shadow Duel as a result. He is revived when Jaden and Chazz defeat Tragoedia, and witnesses Jaden's match against Koyo Hibiki years later.

Deck[edit]

Bastion plays a Yokai Deck, which relies on the Summoning of monsters from his Graveyard. The Yokai Monsters often have effects that activate in the Graveyard or when they are Special Summoned from the Graveyard. Bastion includes cards which send his own cards to the Graveyard such as "Card Destruction", "Spirits Rest" and "Foolish Burial", while reviving his monsters via cards such as "Vindictive Spirits", "Mezuki", "Night Parade of One Hundred Horrors" and "Ghostly Reinforcements". He also builds up enough monsters in his Graveyard to Special Summon his ace monster "Red Ogre" via "Enma's Judgment".
