Uncover the stories behind the cards!

— In-game description

Solo Mode is a single-player mode in Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel. The player learns about famous Archetypes by completing Campaigns, called Gates.

The first two Gates, Tutorial and Duel Strategy teach the player some of the basic rules of the game and puts them into practice.

Each Gate after those provides the player with the lore and background story of the respective Deck Types, as well as Dueling Challenges to showcase their styles of play. After completing the gates related to each archetype, the corresponding Secret Pack is unlocked for 24 hours.

At several points in the Gates the player will find locked "doors" that can only be unlocked with the Attribute Orbs obtained by completing chapters in various Gates. Unlocking these will open access to other Duels and make additional rewards available.

See Master Duel card storylines for the cutscene scripts of each Gate.

The player is taught the very basics of the game here, and is rewarded with a Starting Deck to use. Full completion of the Tutorial also lets the player pick between one of three additional Starters - Link Generation, Power of the Dragon, or Synchro of Unity - to expand their collection. The other two Decks that were not selected can be obtained later on by reaching Duelist Levels 5 and 10.
