Duel Worlds (WC08-VG)
From the main menu there are two options - one of them is "Duel World". In this mode, the player travels through different Duel Spirit worlds, dueling with various opponents and completing events to unlock packs. Duel World is the "story campaign" of the game and is where the player makes the most legwork in unlocking opponents in World Championship mode.
The World of Grace is the first Duel Spirit World from where the player commences their journey.
The Colosseum is the Structure Deck Colosseum, where the player will have to face Amazoness Paladin using one of the thirteen structure decks. Amazoness Paladin will also be dueling the player using a randomly chosen structure deck as well. Defeat her using all decks to unlock Bastion Misawa in World Championship Mode, get the Amazoness Duel Disk in the wardrobe and get the Amazoness card set.
- The structure decks are:
The tent is where the player can pay 50DP to Crystal Seer to get a fortune - this fortune can help the player proceed through the Duel World storyline if the player gets stuck.
There are also some Duel Spirits against whom the player can duel in this world. Defeat each duelist 5 times to unlock an opponent in World Championship Mode.
- Skull Servant (unlocks King of the Skull Servants)
- Nightmare Penguin (unlocks Reaper on the Nightmare)
- Elemental Hero Knospe (unlocks Elemental Hero Lady Heat)

Once the player has beaten everyone at least once, the player will see Curse of Vampire bullying Gigobyte. Talk to Gigobyte to gain the attention of Vampire's Curse. He will only duel you if you wager a rare card. Defeat him, and the player unlock Vampire's Curse in World Championship Mode, and Gigobyte will show the player to the gate.
Green Guardian - Embust, the guardian of the first Gate, will present the player with 5 different decks to duel against. Beat 3, and he will open the gate, allowing the player to enter the next world - the World of Sunlight. Defeat all 5 decks to unlock Syrus Truesdale in World Championship Mode.
If the player returns afterwards, the player will sometimes see White Magician Pikeru - she'll ask for a cute card. Give her one, and she will disappear, and there may be a chance that Ebon Magician Curran will appear to duel. After beating her, she will disappear - the player will have to give Pikeru another card to restart the process. Beat Curran 5 times to unlock Dark Magician Girl and give Pikeru 5 different cute cards to unlock her in World Championship Mode.
Once you've done all of the above, a stone monument depicting Master of Oz will appear. To properly unseal this stone tablet, you will have to summon Master of Oz in a Duel and win. This unlocks Tyranno Hassleberry in World Championship Mode.
In this world, the player will see Guardian Sphinx guarding a pyramid. Talk to him and the player will be presented with 5 Duel Puzzles. Complete any 3 to enter the pyramid, complete all 5 to unlock Maximillion Pegasus in World Championship Mode.

After beating each duelist (not including Molten Behemoth) once, head back to the World of Grace and talk to Ojama Black. Then, go to the pyramid in the World of Sunlight and talk to Ojama Green - he'll duel the player. Win or lose, head back to the World of Civilization to find Ojama Yellow being attacked by Blowback Dragon.

After beating each team once, Alien Infiltrator and Alien Shocktrooper will challenge the player to a brainwashing duel - this one is completely computer-controlled. It may take the player a few tries to beat them. After the player beats them, they unlock themselves as World Championship opponents, and reveal the gate to the next world.
Once again, the player has to face the guardians, Dark World Guardian - Gigori and Underworld Guardian - Moley, and their five deck combinations. Beat three to proceed, and beat five to unlock Aster Phoenix in World Championship Mode.
The World of Order is filled with opponents that require the player to meet certain conditions on top of a Duel victory to proceed.
The first two Duel Spirits have no stipulations with their initial Duels.
- Thunder Nyan Nyan (unlocks Injection Fairy Lily)
- Absorbing Kid from the Sky (unlocks Marie the Fallen One)
Soul of Purity and Light will, like Molten Behemoth in the World of Civilization, offer the player a card if the player manage to duel and win.
Kaibaman also appears here if the player's Deck contains Blue-Eyes White Dragon. He'll request that the player summons the mighty Dragon in a Duel on top of defeating him. Do so, and the player unlock the real Kaiba in World Championship Mode.
Layard the Liberator guards the gate, and must be defeated using a Deck whose monsters are all Fairy monsters. Do this, and it'll expand the map, and Gellenduo will come by talking about a card they lost. Two more unconditional challengers appear in the surroundings.
Talk to Nyan Nyan and Absorbing Kid, and they will mention a strangely coloured cloud. A new duelist, Cloudian - Poison Cloud will appear over the hole in the clouds. Beat it, and the player can travel beneath the clouds to find more duelists.
For these three Duel Spirits, they will impose a stipulation to the first time you challenge them.

The player's reward is the Nova Summoner card that Gellenduo has dropped. Also, beating each Duel Spirit five times will unlock the monument, which requires that the player win using the effect of Exodius. Doing this task will unlock Adrian Gecko in World Championship Mode.
After the player is done, it opens the gate - up ahead is Airknight Parshath, and a couple more duelists:
Talk to Parshath and give him the Nova Summoner card, but he claims that the player stole it. The player will be tried in court, and have to duel Voltanis the Adjudicator. Win or lose, the player will still be declared guilty until Gellenduo comes in to testify to the player's innocence, earning their freedom. If the player won the duel against Voltanis, the player will unlock both Voltanis and Parshath in World Championship Mode.
Up ahead at the next gate is Harvest Angel of Wisdom, who will only let you pass if he is defeated while taking at least 8000 damage in a single turn. This will unlock the final part of the map, leading the player to the base of a tall tower.
At this point, if the player has beaten every regular duelist here 5 times, the player will unlock a stone monument requiring Rainbow Dragon to be summoned. Beating this will get the player Jesse Anderson in World Championship Mode. Card Trader will also show up, and he does exactly as his name suggests - give him a card, and he'll give a random card in return.
Meltiel, Sage of the Sky will approach the player and congratulate them for making it this far, and states that there is a gate on top of the tower. However, to reach it, the player will have to face several duelists along the way, each with their own condition to meet:
- Alkana Knight Joker - Activate 10 Spells
- The End of Anubis - Activate 10 Traps
- Arcana Force Extra - The Light Ruler - Win with 5 or less cards in the deck
- White Night Dragon - Make it discard 10 cards

Once the player has beaten all five challenges, the final gate awaits, guarded by Sky Guardian - Sefolile. She will challenge the player to a 5-round survival duel - just like Ferrario's, but longer. After the player finishes this, the credits roll, and the player unlocks several things at once, including Dark Zane in World Championship Mode, and the last world - the World of Chaos.
Several Duel Spirits await the player, as usual.
