Dark Signer Kalin Kessler is a playable Legendary Duelist in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links who appears in Duel World (5D's). This is a video game depiction of Kalin Kessler, a character from the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime, as a Dark Signer, as seen in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. His appearance after being a Dark Signer is a separate Legendary Duelist, Kalin Kessler.

Blue Gate Keys are required to Duel him at the Gate.

He appears in-game after the player reaches Stage 6 of Duel World (5D's), at which point his Character Unlock Missions become available. Prior to January 14, 2020, he could only be unlocked through the special event Raid Duel - The Flames of Vengeance: Ccapac Apu! Prior to being made available as a playable character, he had also appeared during the special event Mark of the Dark Signer as a roaming opponent.

Description[edit]

As a Dark Signer, Kalin has the Mark of the Giant. In "happier" times, Kalin teamed up with Yusei and Jack to form The Enforcers - the most powerful Dueling team in Satellite. When he was captured by Sector Security, he mistakenly blamed Yusei for his imprisonment. These dark days turned Kalin into a Dark Signer. With his zero-card handless combo, Kalin used "Earthbound Immortal Ccapac Apu" to punish Yusei for his misdeeds.
