Jersey, George

George Jersey (ジョウジ・ジャージ Jōji Jāji) is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GO RUSH!! anime. He is an alien from the Jersey Devil Planet, currently residing in the Alien Residential Area of Mutsuba Town alongside his younger brothers.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Full-body view of George with his brothers, Jouge and Ofuruno: George is on the left.

George is a large, greenish blue furred demonic-looking alien with a horse-like head, scarlet wings, horns, small and clawed arms and a forked tail, inspired by the Jersey Devil. He wears a red jersey zipped up, purple pants and white shoes, with a white Deck box strapped around his left thigh.

Personality[edit]

George has a typical Japanese delinquent personality, acting tough and menacing in front of strangers, but is actually quite kind to people he likes or respects and is even a little dim-witted. Just like his younger brothers, George easily becomes touched when someone recognized their obscure home planet.

He seems to have a distaste to aliens originating from "urban" home worlds like the Velgear Star Cluster. However, as pointed above, once somebody gains his respect and affection, he shows friendliness and respect in return regardless of their origin.

Just like many other aliens in the show, George often ends his sentences with a tic relating to his character, in his case "jersey".

Abilities[edit]

George has the ability to fly using his wings.

Biography[edit]

Jouge, George and Ofuruno saw Yudias Velgear, Yuhi Ohdo and Yuamu Ohdo, recognizing them from the Rush Duels against Manya Atachi and deciding to teach them a lesson for being involved with Manya. They confronted the group and introduced themselves, but Jouge and Ofuruno were struck by Yudias recognizing their homeworld, the Jersey Devil Planet. Jouge was impressed to learn Yudias was from the Velgear Star Cluster, though this revelation only made George dislike him further and challenge him to a Rush Duel. Jouge took the time to explain Duel Power to the Ohdo twins. George and Yudias Rush Dueled, Jouge and Ofuruno initially mocking him for his inability to understand costs, but they admitted George had missed the chance to win when he misplayed until George yelled at them. To Jouge's shock, Yudias used card effects to set up the requirements for his own costs, and he defeated George. After the Duel, the twins shared their bento with the brothers and Jouge tearfully remarked it reminded him of Big Mommy Jersey's cooking. The twins explained they were looking for a human girl, Yuna Goha, and asked if the brothers had seen her: Jouge hadn't, but suggested that if she wasn't lost in the streets she might be on the dark side of town and suggested they look for the Informant for more information on it.[2]

After the Duel with Yudias, the Jersey Devil brothers were inspired to go to the Coruffium to raise their ranks. However the competition proved too brutal for them and they were stripped of their jerseys, while George was badly injured. Jouge and Ofuruno were rushing George to get medical aid when they ran into Yudias, Yuhi and Yuamu in the hallway and explained what had happened, and Jouge and Ofuruno took George away once George had regained enough strength to tell Yuhi where the Coruffium facilities were.[3]

Afterwards, the brothers were able to reclaim their jerseys. To their surprise, the Ohdo twins came to them with a fragment of the Informant, Navel Number 81, explaining they were unable to move due to losing all their Duel Power to Yuna Goha and requesting some of theirs, though the brothers initially believed the twins wanted their jerseys. The twins explained that Yudias had gone missing and they believed he had gone to Badloon Castle, an area Jouge didn't want to go to, but George gave the twins some of his Duel Power to allow them to move, telling them they would have to try on a jersey to see if it fit and agreeing to help them. After Ofuruno demonstrated what happened to those who tried passing the Total Muscle Gate without a Macho Rank, the group instead infiltrated Badloon Castle through the vent Number 81 had escaped through, Jouge and Ofuruno flying Yuhi up to the vent. Once inside they avoided the Rovian Bandits but accidentally alerted one, who Jouge recognized as Hachiro Miro. George used his jersey to distract Hachiro, and Jouge and Ofuruno joined him, buying time for Yuhi, Yuamu and Navel Number 81 to get away.[4]

Later, when a strange spaceship appeared from a wormhole during Yudias' Duel against Rovian Kirishima, George can be seen Dueling against Nomura as the latter's chapeau alien partner Damas reacted to the approaching vessel.[5]

Deck[edit]

George uses a Jersey Deck, comprised out of parodies of classic DM-era monsters, donning jumpsuits similar to the one he is seen wearing. His Deck directly supports monsters with 500 DEF and his ultimate strategy is to summon his ace monster, "Black Luster Soljersey", while powering it up and protecting it with Monster effects, Spells, and Traps with varying costs.
