The '''Topsiders''', also shortened to '''Tops''', refers to the upper class of [[New Domino City (ARC-V)|New Domino City]]'s society. In the Japanese version, they are known as simply the '''Tops'''. They appear in the ''[[Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V]]'' anime.
== Etymology ==
Topsider is derived from the word ''Top'', meaning "high".
New Domino's society is entirely competition based, where the "winners" stand to gain everything, and the "losers" stand to lose everything. The upper 1% of New Domino's population is known as the Topsiders. They control 99% of the city's wealth, and live in a magnificent cityscape of highways, skyscrapers, villas, and even smaller metropolises that tower high above the slums the [[Commons (ARC-V)|Commons]], or the remaining 99% of the population, reside in. It is patrolled by [[Sector Security (ARC-V)|Sector Security]], who will apprehend any Commons that are in Topsiders-exclusive areas without authorization. The Topsiders openly discriminate against the Commons, with the possible exception of Commons who are able to achieve great things and become Topsiders themselves, such as [[Jack Atlas (ARC-V)|Jack Atlas]], who won the [[Friendship Cup]] and became Duel King. <ref name="ep54">{{episode|Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V|54|ref}}</ref> Even their places at tournaments have a clear divide; Commons sit in an ordinary stadium, while Topsiders generally have private boxes and rooms separate from Commons, though there are exceptions.
During the [[Arc League Championship]], [[Yugo]] and [[Zuzu Boyle]] were transported to a Topsiders-exclusive area by [[Zuzu's bracelet]], where the two explained to each other their knowledge of the events that had transpired before they were discovered by Topsiders residents, prompting them to flee on Yugo's [[Duel Runner]] only to be forced into a [[Turbo Duel]] by Sector Security.
During a Sector Security raid, the Topsiders that were present were escorted from the scene while the Commons were all arrested, as seen with the [[Underground Dueling Arena]].
After the [[Friendship Cup]] Duel between [[Yuya Sakaki]] and Jack, the concept of the Topsiders was dissolved, as per [[White Taki]]'s announcement of the [[Executive High Council]]'s disbandment.
