So, I saw a rant on Deviantart about how confusing the Yu-Gi-Oh! timeline is, and I decided to try and make sense of it all. I haven't got this completed though, since I'd like to see input and possible debate on the subject.

8000 B.C.
Corruption of the people of Atlantis by the Orichalcos. Battle of Atlantis, resulting in one of the first recorded instances of the appearances of Duel Monsters on Earth. The 5000 year battle between the Crimson Dragon and the King of the Netherworld takes place, and ends in its first disturbance with the apparently permanent sealing of Red Nova in the serpent Nazca Line.

3000 B.C.
The 5000 year battle between the Crimson Dragon and the King of the Netherworld takes place again. The Earthbound Immortals are sealed in the Nazca Lines, but Ancient Fairy Dragon is taken captive.

1185 B.C.
Creation of the Millennium Items, and the birth of the power of Zorc Necrophades after the massacre of Kul Elna. The first recorded Shadow Games. In addition, the power of Duel Monsters becomes widespread.

1000 B.C.
Attacks by Bandit King Bakura, who claims all seven Millennium Items and releases Zorc. Sealing of the Shadow Games and the memories and souls of Pharaoh Atem and Zorc in the Millennium Pendant, which is shattered and becomes the Millennium Puzzle.

I don't know if adding ARC-V events in a linear timeline with the other series is a correct assumption, unless we find out later in the story that the 4 Dimensions used to be 1 and fragmented for some reason (which has a 50% probability of being true in my opinion)

I have other minor complaints like Zexal being a continuation of 5D's instead of a parallel timeline but since that's anybody's guess then it doesn't really matter for me.

Also, the ARC System? It's the first time I've heard about it.

It is based on an assumption that they're set in the same continuity.
Thus why ZEXAL takes place quite a while after 5D's.
The ARC System is the dub name for the Real Solid Vision System - the solid vision with mass.

Ohh I see, in that case it's fine. I feel like a 10 year difference between the events of 5D's and Zexal is too little though, but that's probably just me.

As do I. Hence why it's longer. Ener-D was also worldwide by then, so that presumably helped quite a bit in the technological development.

I always though that because ZEXAL world was created by a card, it was actually a offspring from the main timeline, but no one can say for sure. Aside from that and the ambiguity that Arc-V has show us until now, it's a pretty good timeline.

Where does Paradox from the movie come into all of this? I know some people don't even count the movies but if we were to then where would he be fitted?

Paradox was canon, BBT occured before Crash Town and he was mentioned in a flashback. POL is non-canon. DSOD is from the Manga continuity so it doesn't count in this timeline.

Nightshroud actually used a card as a metaphor when he explained the creation of the universe to Jaden. One could argue that he wasn't being metaphorical.
Paradox is during the second year of 5D's and after Crash Town I believe (either after or just before), and presumably inbetween either Battle City and Waking the Dragons or Grand Championship and Dawn of the Duel. As for the GX time, I'd place it in my timeline at 2008.

I know this is all speculation. But you're saying Yugi has the God Cards after winning the Battle City, while Jaden in 2008 has probably graduated, and Yusei is getting ready for the WRGP. So middle of DM, end of GX, and near the end of 5D's?

Sanokal

Yes. The wiki timeline places Jaden as graduating in 2007.

I didn't watch GX properly (just the 1st season and some random episodes from the 3rd) so I didn't know that. Thanks for the info, I'll look more into it.

I'm working on a theory for the cosmology of Yu-Gi-Oh. the crux of it is based of what's been said here before, that the universe has both a light and dark side, that are inexorably linked. Whenever the forces of darkness try to take over, the forces of light rise up against them. And until their opponent is defeated for good, both must remain, abiet dormant.

My main issue is trying to map out both the timeline, and the related dimensions (if I can figure out how Zexal connects to DM/GX/5D's, that will tell me where I should put the Astral & Barian Worlds in relation).

Sanokal

Sounds about right. 5D's and ZEXAL both refer to such a contest, don't know about GX, but it may have.

First of all, a very nice piece of work, congrats.

We all know that DM-GX and 5D's are in same timeline.
The first question is whether Zexal is in the same timelne or not. In Roku's Duel Sanctuary, there are statues of Dark Magician, Blue-Eyes,Red-Eyes, Flame Swordsman, Neos,etc... and these are called Legendary Monsters. Also Roku himself play with Arcana Deck. Since these monsters are from past series and called legendary, we can say that Zexal is in the same timeline but at a very distant future. (to become a legend tale)

Also, like the dystopia future of GX and 5D's resemble each other, beginning of time of GX and Zexal resemble each other. ( In Gx : A card, In Zexal : Card => Numeron Code)

However, the common sense about Arc-V is that it show us what if Yugi, Judai,Yusei or Yuma didn't exist.( I also support this idea) So , I think it is wrong to start Arc-V timeline after Zexal. Briefly, it is a parelel universe story.

Last note, you can also extend the timeline by including the past events.

Adding them in now.
ARC-V is an interesting case. There's nothing to say that it ISN'T part of the main timeline, but it would be nice if we could get some clarification.

By your logic, Arc-V Jack Atlas is 60 years old. Crow, too.

Sanokal
29th January 2016, 02:54 AM
Seriously? They're different characters.

So they both reincarnated, Atem-style? Or what?

Sanokal
29th January 2016, 03:26 AM
Currently they're being regarded as alternate incarnations, whether or not one classifies that as reincarnation. They both have different backstories to the 5D's Jack and Crow however.

Updated, finally. Guess the original world is gone for good. Sigh...
