Orlando, known in Japan as Kabukid (カブキッド, Kabukiddo), is a Duelist who treats his Duels as theater shows and Duels only to impress his audience. Orlando Duels against Jaden Yuki in the Genex Tournament, only to be defeated and learn that Dueling is about having fun. His appearance ends with him giving a rather ridiculous, yet humorous victory dance to Jaden and company. On a side note, both Crowler and Bonaparte are adoring fans of Orlando.

Orlando's Linework

In the Japanese version, Orlando is a professional Cosplay Duelist obsessed with Kabuki, a form of traditional Japanese theater. He is also the champion of the international Pro League. His background story in the dub is altered to where he was a Broadway actor claiming to have starred in plays such as "Deck Side Story" and "Duelist on the Roof" (puns on "West-Side Story" and "Fiddler on the Roof" respectively).


Orlando's Deck is based on many aspects of traditional kabuki, especially the play Kanjinchou which contained Benkei, his lover Shizuka, and his opponent Yoshitsune. His strategy is to control the Duel right from the start, just like how every aspect of theater is planned and controlled from the start. His "Kabuki Stage" Field Spells can search each other out, and many of his cards utilize unique abilities that activate during battle. These effects are used to regain advantages quickly and work well in conjunction with the Field Spells. "Battle Claw Fox" can destroy monsters that attacks it, while "Shizuka the Heavenly Dancer" can heal Life Points under the same conditions. His ultimate card, "Gengis Ghan - The Emperor Dragon", though its effect isn't used, can deal damage to the opponent when it is destroyed by a card effect.
