Sid, known as Takaido in the Japanese version, is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. He is one of Bandit Keith's former henchmen, along with Bonz and Zygor. In the dub, he has an Australian accent.


Duelist Kingdom[edit]

In the Duelist Kingdom tournament, he is first seen with Bonz and Zygor spying on Yugi and his friends. When Zygor notes that only two people in that group are wearing Dueling Gauntlets, Sid dismisses the others as useless. But when Zygor recognizes Yugi, Sid suggests that they meet up with Bandit Keith before doing anything else. After the three explain the situation to Bandit Keith, the latter assures them that they'll all make it to Pegasus's castle. At this point, Sid and the others audibly reaffirm their trust in Bandit Keith. Afterwards, Sid accompanies Zygor in tracking down Joey, and watches as Zygor knocks out their target.

After Joey recovers and insults Bonz's appearance, Sid joins Zygor and Bandit Keith in laughing at his remark. When Joey considers refusing the Duel, Bandit Keith calls him a coward, and Sid reinforces this by clucking like a chicken. Once Joey accepts their challenge, Sid acts as a passive observer for most of the Duel, backing up Zygor's occasional comments. However when Yugi and his friends finally arrive, Sid and Zygor take a cue from Bandit Keith to deal with them, and he tells the new group that they won't be interfering with the Duel. When Tristan decides to fight them, Sid sneakily flicks a ball bearing at his forehead, setting him up to be finished with a punch from Zygor.

After the Duel concludes, and Sid helps seal Yugi's group in the caverns, he and Bonz are shocked at Bandit Keith knocking Zygor unconscious, and are subsequently knocked unconscious as well, with Sid's remaining Star Chips being confiscated by Bandit Keith.

Battle City[edit]

Sid, Bonz and Zygor are then seen right before the Battle City finals. The three reside in a nearby cemetery and trick people into giving up their Locator Cards. However, Yami Bakura is not intimidated by their act and challenges them to a Duel in which the winner gets all the Locator Cards, and thus goes directly to the Battle City Finals. Bakura wins in just a few moves, and then banishes them to Hell (the Shadow Realm in the dub).

Other appearances[edit]


Sid's only shown card in the anime is "Firewing Pegasus", which was seen on the screen of Seeker's laptop as he was searching for Duelists and their rarest cards.[2]
