In the dub, Gore's manager speaks in a Southern accent.
Gore's manager was forced to calm Gore down as he threw his weights in anger at Playmaker's rising popularity. He encouraged Gore to learn about the new and popular Speed Duels so that he wouldn't be left behind. SOL Technologies' Akira Zaizen arrived at the warehouse, though neither Gore nor his manager recognized him until Zaizen provided Gore's manager his business card. Zaizen expressed surprise that Gore lacked a more lavish home, a choice that Gore's manager defended. Zaizen provided them with data, which the manager recognized as a Duel Board for Speed Duels. Zaizen explained that he wanted The Gore to defeat Playmaker, and Gore's approved of Zaizen's offer, but asked for Gore's opinion as well. To his surprise, Gore rejected Zaizen's offer. As Zaizen left, the manager commented that Zaizen acted like he knew everything and told Gore that the offer was also a threat.
As The Gore and Playmaker Dueled, his manager visited Gore's orphanage, intending to watch the reactions of the children there with their teacher. He noted that he didn't mind the children's change of heart as they were honest in supporting the coolest hero, and The Gore would regain his popularity among the children if he won. When Gore lost half his LP, he reassured the children's teacher that Gore pretending to be at a disadvantage to exaggerate his opponent's strength. Sure enough, Gore Link Summoned "Gouki The Great Ogre", and he confirmed that Gore's style entertained his viewers as well as his opponents. As The Gore counterattacked, he agreed with the children's teacher that Gore would win, but privately felt there was something amiss with Playmaker. He was pleased when Gore saved "The Great Ogre" from destruction from Playmaker's "Decode Talker", though The Gore was eventually defeated, and he joined the children in congratulating Gore at his warehouse.
