Yugi Muto is the main protagonist of the anime, manga, and card game of his name called Yu-Gi-Oh!
Like everyone else in the show, he is a duelist who relies on special cards that allow him to beat opponents. Some of his friends are Joey Wheeler, Tristan Taylor and Téa Gardner who all entered the championship to duel other powerful duelists.
It is shown that Yugi has a split side named Yami Yugi who often releases during duels and other times from his Millennium Puzzle, and he happens to be the modern reincarnation of Yami Yugi who's original name was Atem, and was a Pharaoh of Egypt five thousand years prior to the series.
