The Konami Code is a cheat code that appears in many Konami video games, including several Yu-Gi-Oh! video games. The "normal" version of the code is ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A, though a number of variations have been used.
- In Yu-Gi-Oh! 7 Trials to Glory: World Championship Tournament 2005, the code can be used to view the credits.
- In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Falsebound Kingdom, it can be entered to get extra money.
- In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force, the code ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → × ○, when entered in the Card Shop, unlocks the Midday Constellation (Noon Star) pack, which costs 5730 DP. "573" is the goroawase pronunciation of "Konami".
- In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 2, the code can be entered to unlock the Midday Constellation pack.
- In Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Duel Transer, entering the code ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → □ △ during character creation unlocks an additional design for each gender: one based on "Dark Magician" for the male avatar, and on "Dark Magician Girl" for the female avatar. Choosing one of these designs also gives one of two special Starter Decks, depending on the chosen avatar gender.
- There was a function in the code of Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM to handle the Konami Code, that presumably would have unlocked "Gradius" if entered in the correct place in-game.
in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 4, instead of the Konami Code, the code → → → → → □ □ □ □ □ □ □ Select Select Select (→ ×5, □ ×7, Select ×3) can be entered in the Card Shop to unlock the High Noon Constellation pack. This code references the "573" goroawase pronunciation of "Konami".
Anime and manga
The second effect of the anime and manga versions of "Enemy Controller" is a possible nod to the Konami Code, although the button combination is significantly shortened (←, →, A, B to Tribute an opponent's monster).
- Konami Arcade Games - a number of cards reference a variety of Konami's other video games, primary among them the Gradius series.
