Different Dimension, usually abbreviated D.D., and called げん (Ijigen) or ディーディー. (Dī Dī) in the Japanese version, is a series of cards that focus on banishing cards, often including themselves once they are defeated, thus sending them to a 'different dimension' as opposed to just destroying the enemy. Although they were released in different sets, a large amount of "Different Dimension" monsters were released in The Dark Emperor Structure Deck. Alien of Light used some D.D. cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime and Nelson Andrews used some in Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL.

Lore[edit]

Playing style[edit]

A D.D. Deck revolve around card banishment, commonly used in conjunction with other cards such as "Golden Homunculus", "Gren Maju Da Eiza", the Helios cards, "Caius the Shadow Monarch", etc. Other cards also return themselves from banishment: "D.D. Survivor", "D.D. Scout Plane", etc.

Because D.D. is often associated with the "Sparrow Family" the D.D.'s strongest monsters overall are "D.D. Esper Star Sparrow" with 3000 ATK, and their strongest monster is "D.D. Jet Iron", with 4000 ATK. However, these two cards are much more affiliated with the "Sparrow Family" than D.D. and do not share the D.D.'s usual banishing strategies. Beyond them, however, D.D. monsters are rather weak in terms of offense, with no other monsters in their family having ATK higher than 1800. Furthermore, while there are D.D. Spell and Trap cards, the series lacks any D.D.-specific support. This lack thereof, combined with a low average ATK, make it difficult to create a Deck with only D.D. cards.

Weakness[edit]

These cards are not without their weakness however. "Imperial Iron Wall" will effectively shut down nearly all D.D. cards (with the exception of a small few like "Different Dimension Dragon".)
