Leonard "Leo", Lua (龍亞 Rua?) in the Japanese version, is one of the main characters of the anime series Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. Along with his twin sister Luna, he aids Yusei Fudo, whom he adores and supports in his duels while making fun of fate. Leo is the older twin of the two and has a lively and blundering personality, being easily irritated by his sister's insults but does deeply care for his sister. Leo also has a funny ability where he can rotate his hand like a wheel when he is excited.



Leo's outfit is similar to his sister's; it consists of a short-sleeved light blue jacket over a sleeveless dark blue shirt with golden markings that differ from Luna's shirt. He also wears light blue shorts with a dark blue belt and blue sneakers of the same color. Leo also has a bracelet on each wrist, and his blue-green hair is pulled into a single, high ponytail with two shoulder-length bangs on both sides of his face but when he doesn't wear it up (like when he's sleeping) it looks like Luna's in the same situation. He carries a Duel Disk with a blue and white trim on his left arm, which was originally too big to fit until Yusei modified it.

On formal occasions, he wears a blue suit with a white shirt and blue bowtie under the jacket, and black loafers with white, knee-high socks.

Character outline



Leo lives together with Luna in the Tops resident area. They spend most of their time alone together as their parents are usually at work. They are educated via the Internet, so they spend most of their time inside. In the dub, Leo's actual name is Leonard, but he prefers to be called "Leo" for short.


Leo is shown to be one of the most carefree characters in the show. As said by his sister, "he would be the only one going to the Satellite like it was a picnic." Even though Leo has this cheery exterior, he is shown to not be as simple-minded as he is led to be. Though he doesn't show it to anyone, but his sister, he is discouraged by the fact that his sister is a signer and can talk to card spirits, but he can't. Before his duel with Sayer, Leo has it in his head that he must protect his sister and is a hero. After the duel though he feels completely useless, until his sister lets him know how much she needs him. After this talk, Leo takes up the role of her "hero" by going against a dark signer even though he is not a signer himself. He is a very confident duelist and very courageous when anything involves his sister. In both the dub and the original, Leo is shown to have a huge appetite, and according to his sister, "loves food as much as dueling, maybe even more." He is also shown to have problems with math, as he usually takes him some time to figure out math problems and usually counts on his fingers to do them. Leo acts really confident of himself and adamant, but is prone to crying if he loses a Duel. When he is very excited, Leo likes to spin his right arm like a wind-up pitch before launching a major attack on his opponents. As pointed out by Luna, he also likes to narrate his duels, which can annoy the opponents.

Deck & Duel Board

Leo plays a Morphtronic Deck that features an Archetype of monsters known as "Morphtronics" ("Deformers" or "D-Formers" in the Japanese version) whose effects are dictated by Battle Position. The monsters' appearances are derived from various household objects such as mobile phones, lighters, and magnets. In addition, Leo also has a Synchro Monster called Power Tool Dragon, who can equip a spell card from his deck. Its similarity to a dragon that appeared in a vision Luna had led Leo to believe he was the fifth Signer, but his notion turned out to be false. Power Tool, however, has shown signs of having a conscience, protecting Leo from attacks and understanding with others say. Whether there is a link between Power Tool and the fifth dragon is yet to be shown.

In the third season, he discovers Duel Boards, motorized skateboards that are compatible with Duel Disks, and asks Yusei to make one for him.

Plot overview

Fortune Cup

Luna was able to sense Yusei when he was shocked by the police officers so she and Leo rescue him after his duel with Trudge and take him to their home. Yusei wanted to leave, fearing he may place them in danger, but Leo talks him into a Duel. (In the English dub, Yusei had lost his memory, so he agreed to duel Leo to get his memory back.) After Yusei wins, they manage to get him to stay for the night.

Leo and Luna awaken the next morning to find that Yusei had left after modifying their Duel Disks to fit their small arms. Leo then leaves with Tenpei to find and duel the Black Rose. They eventually meet up with Yusei again and shortly afterward the Black Rose appears, but leaves after seeing Yusei's Dragon's Birthmark, which seemingly disgusts her. Leo seems to show fear for both the Black Rose and the Birthmark.

Luna was selected as someone to participate in the Fortune Cup, but she did not feel like participating, so Leo planned to disguise himself as her and compete instead. The next day, Leo enters the Fortune Cup in disguise as Luna, but quickly loses to Greiger after a hard-fought duel. Using Zigzix's Signer-detecting technology, Lazar determines that Greiger dueled Leo instead of Luna. During the consolation duel where Luna dueled Professor Frank, Leo was hypnotized along with his sister and later reveals to her that he had unconsciously given himself the task of protecting her while she protects the Duel Monsters Spirit World. He was awakened from his trance when the duel ended.

Dark Signers

At the end of the first day of the Fortune Cup, it is shown that Yusei would be paired against Greiger the next day. As Tanner wondered what kind of Duel Runner he has, Leo remembered something and ran off. He was surprised that Greiger's Duel Runner is much bigger than Yusei's.

After the Fortune Cup, Leo and Luna learn what a Signer is. When Yusei goes on his own to Satellite, Leo begins to worry about him. After Yusei's duel with Kalin, Luna has a vision of the Fifth Dragon, which Leo assumes is his card, Power Tool Dragon, and believes himself as a Signer. Leo, believing that the Signers should work together to fight the Dark Signers, learns of the Arcadia Movement and goes to find Akiza. When he gets there, he is captured, chained, and forced to duel Sayer to get to her, losing in the process. He is eventually rescued by Tanner and Yanagi.

Later on, he is told about the situation between the Signers and Dark Signers by Goodwin. Despite not being a Signer himself, he decides to help Luna and the others in their cause. When one of the Dark Signers, Devack, shows that he has the Ancient Fairy Dragon card, Leo, Luna and Trudge head over to where he is. On the way there, Luna is transported to the realm of Duel Monsters Spirits. When Leo goes looking for her, he runs into Devack and is caught in a shadow duel. Whilst Devack is somewhat uninterested due to him not being a Signer, Leo is determined to fight in order to save Luna. However, when Devack summons his Earthbound Immortal, it is Luna who comes back to save him, and together they defeat Devack and reclaim Ancient Fairy Dragon.

After Crow's Shadow Turbo Duel against Greiger ends, Leo along with Luna, Trudge and him are all currently witnessing the rematch between Yusei and Kalin. After the extreme duel between the 2 finally ends, Leo, Luna and Trudge accompany Yusei as he decides to go to the Original Enerdy Reactor directly in order to duel against Roman one more time.

He watches the Duel between Yusei and Roman with Yusei winning. He watches in horror as Roman blows up the bridge and drops Yusei into the Enerdy Reactor. Leo at first believes that he is dead, but like everyone else in there is surprised, when Yusei returns, though unconscious. And after he wakes up and that everyone eventually go up through the same stairs they use before, they all notice in the distant the purple sparks. As then they figure out that not only Jack has won but also has activated the third Tower.

Knowing that the last Tower to be activated is Akiza's task, Leo, Luna, Trudge and Yusei all go to where it is. Arriving at and old and abandoned carnival the twins began looking for her and Mina. After Sayer awakes Akiza's power and is transformed once again into the Black rose, they notice the tornado that is materialized after she summons Black Rose Dragon. As they then get to the area where the duel is taking place, they both notice Akiza's powers having once again manifested even stronger. After Mina and Trudge arrive they all watch the outcome of the match, with Akiza emerging victorious. However they notice that its too late for the last Tower to be activated, as the sun has already set.

And therefore they see the Condor geoglyph that has appeared on the sky. Thus after the King of the Underworld not only revives, but also is heading towards the formed Condor geoglyph which is on New Domino City. However as with this, the Crimson Dragon appears once again just to take everyone to Rex's Goodwin mansion. Where he reveals to them its identity as the final Dark Signer, and then declares that a Shadow Turbo Duel will be held within Condor geoglyph as a ritual to welcome the King of the Underworld.

As Yusei, Jack, and Crow accept the Duel in order to stop the resurrection of the Underworld Ruler, Leo, cheers for them along with as his sister and the rest who can only support them by watching while hoping they win.

World Turbo Grand Prix

After the Dark Signers' defeat, peace returns to the city and Leo attends Duel Academy with Luna and his friends. When a boy named Lucciano enrolls into Duel Academy, Leo is instantly annoyed with him and becomes jealous of him hanging around Luna. Noticing Lucciano giving her a Duel Board, a motorised skateboard that can be used for Turbo Duels, Leo gets Yusei to make him one. When Lucciano, actually a member of Ylliaster, forces Luna into a Turbo Duel, Leo joins in, and they both find themselves against Machine Emperor Sukiel. Despite his best efforts to defend, Leo is beaten by Lucciano and knocked off the bridge. He is saved when the Signer marks summon out the Crimson Dragon. Following the duel, they find that Lucciano had disappeared and wiped the memory of the Duel Academy students.

Appearances in other media

Recently, Leo has been confirmed to appear in the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie: Super Fusion! Bonds that Transcend Time, along with his sister Luna. What his role will be in the film is currently unknown.
