[TK03] Those Tokens featuring anime characters

Totally forgot about these.

This is not really news, the pack came out on June 2021 which feels like a million years ago. It has always been hard to compile pictures of all of them, and it still is. This post is an attempt to compile them and have translations for the quotes. Of course, the name of all these cards is just “Token” and the text at the top part of the description box is the usual “This card can be used as a Token”.

Yami Yugi Token (TK03-JP001)

(In response to Yami Marik rhetorically asking Yugi if he has any means to defeat him in after sacrificing Obelisk during Battle City)
Yami Yugi: “I have friends…and in the same way, my Deck contains servants that have fought to the bitter end, in whom I can believe!”
(proceeds to play Magical Dimension to control both Dark Magician Girl and Dark Magician)

Seto Kaiba Token (TK03-JP002)

Seto Kaiba: “The Utlimate Creature of Destruction!”
(Note: This quote is a series of 3 adjectives, [Tenacious!³], [Invincible!³], [The Strongest!³], which Kaiba uses often. It was turned into an actual Trap Card, which is where this localization comes from. As a note, in the manga, these adjectives feature a “cubed” (³) exponent to express the triple power of Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, which is replicated in this card)

Anzu Masaki/Tea Gardner Token (TK03-JP003)

Anzu Masaki/Tea Gardner: “I’ll never lose to someone like you!”
(To Crump, during the Virtual World arc, as soon as the Duel begins, in which Anzu/Tea chooses Dark Magician Girl as her Deck Master)

Yubel: “You’re not alone at all, I’m right by your side.”

Chazz/Jun: “1, 10, 100, 1000, Armed Dragon Thunder!”

Aster/Edo Phoenix Token (TK03-JP009)

Aster/Edo: “In order to put an end to destiny, the card that became the origin of destiny is most appropriate…Come on! The ultimate D-HERO, Plasma!”

Syrus/Shou: “I don’t need you to hold back!”
(To Missy/Ran Kouchou. She taunts him as being inferior to his brother, and announces she won’t be holding back on this Duel, so she can get a chance to be promoted to a higher category, where she can meet Syrus/Shou’s brother, to which Syrus/Shou angrily responds there’s no need for her to hold back in the first place. In this Duel, Syrus/Shou refuses to use Power Bond, his brother’s key card, and uses Super Vehicroid Connection Zone instead to Summon Super Vehicroid Jumbo Drill)
