The D-Wheel (Duel Runner). The next evolution of the Duel Disk, this machine goes full throttle in a Riding (Turbo) Duel. Overflowing with speed and thrill this is the ultimate show and symbol of freedom.

— The phrase recited before the Japanese opening themes for the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime, during the Friendship Cup arcs.
A Duel Runner.

The Duel Runner, known as D-Wheel (D・ホイール, Di Hoīru) in the Japanese and German versions, is a special Duel Disk extension utilized for Turbo Duels. It was introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's and also appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V and Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS.


Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's[edit]

In Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, Duel Runners were introduced by KaibaCorp as unique Duel Disk extensions which are used for Turbo Duels. They are equipped with a screen which shows Duel details such a the current field and Life Points. It can approach speeds of up to 220 kilometers (136.62 miles) per hour during a Turbo Duel. In addition, other equipment like the helmet visor serves to display various information, such as the stats of a monster.

In each Duel Runner, there are two specific cards integrated: the Field Spell Cards "Speed World" and "Speed World 2". If this card is activated then the Duel screen on the Runner will appear. Furthermore, all other information irrelevant to the Duel can be switched off. This card's activation automatically activates the Runner's Duel Disk. Sector Security is capable of forcibly activating the "Speed World" cards of other Duelists in order to force them into Turbo Duels.

Certain Duel Runners are known as "hybrid models". These Runners allow a Duel Disk to be attached to them, rather than have the Duel Disk connected directly to the interface. This allows a Duelist to use the same Duel Disk in both Ground and Turbo Duels.

There are also Duel Boards, customized skateboards built to allow children to participate in Turbo Duels.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL[edit]

A Speed Loader

In the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL manga, the Speed Field allows Duelists to compete in a Speed Duel, a type of Duel similar to a Turbo Duel. During a Speed Duel, both Duelist race around the track in Speed Loaders, a vehicle similar to a Duel Runner.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V[edit]

In Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Duel Runners are reintroduced into the series with the introduction of Yugo, a Synchro Duelist who resembles Yuya Sakaki. A new Field Spell Card, "Speed World Neo", is also introduced but it does not possess any kind of unique effects such as Speed Counters and the exclusive use of Speed Spell Cards. Turbo Duels are later combined with Action Duels via the Field Spell Card "Crossover Acceleration"; where Action Cards are placed at specific points on the track to be obtained.

Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS[edit]

Phoenix Whirlwind in the Goha Duel Museum

The Phoenix Whirlwind appears in the Goha Duel Museum. Yuro Goha uses a hovering machine that resembles a Speed Loader during his Turbo Rush Duel with Yuga Ohdo; Yuga rides a modified air-conditioning device he powered with Kaizo.
