Bernie (バーニー, Bānī) is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. He is an elite student of the Fusion Dimension's Duel Academy.
Bernie wears the standard blue uniform of Duel Academy students. He has a large tuft of red hair; the sides of his head are trimmed.
When the Lancers burst onto Duel Academy and engaged by the vanguard, Sanders asked Bernie and his fellow students how they should progress in capturing them. Bernie suggested that they could defeat the Lancers one-on-one, but Sanders chastised him for trying to defeat the Lancers when their mission was to capture them. Bernie was selected by Sanders to take part in a Survival Duel alongside Ted, Ethan, Emma, and Jacob against the captured Lancers Yuya Sakaki, Gong Strong, Crow Hogan and Moon Shadow. Sanders deployed Bernie and his fellow students into the "Predaprimal Jungle", and Bernie eagerly rushed into the jungle, planning to defeat the Lancers first. He spotted Moon Shadow and another Duelist, and challenged the latter, believing it to be a Lancer, but to his shock it was another Duelist, who defeated Bernie and sealed him into a card so swiftly that his classmates didn't notice the change in numbers, believing his screams to be that of a Lancer. Yuya and Gong later found the card containing him.
After Z-ARC's defeat, Bernie was freed from his card.
