Monty Eggman

Hello. Monty Eggman here. Despite the username, I am indeed a brony. Currently working on a series based on Equestria Girls and Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL.


In Canterlot High School, every student is wild over the world's most popular trading card game: Duel Monsters! Every day, players of the card game, known as "Duelists", go head-to-head to see who among them is the best around. Among the Duelists in attendance at CHS, one of the best is a young teenager named Sunset Shimmer, a girl from another world...

Another crossover series, this time combining the worlds of Equestria Girls and the Yu-Gi-Oh! series. The series is basically a retelling of the story of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, from the point of view of the EG cast, taking place between Rainbow Rocks and Friendship Games.

The story follows Sunset Shimmer, who is credited as the strongest Duelist in Canterlot High School. However, her skills are put to the test when she unwittingly releases a dangerous power into her world; a power that alters the egos of those that come into contact with it. Now Sunset has tasked herself with trying to return that power back to where it came from, hopefully before that power creates a real world crisis. She'll need the help of her friends, and the power of her Deck, to see her through the tough battles ahead...

Though the story is based mostly on Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL's story, I have taken a few creative liberties, such as allowing a more heavy use of Synchro and Fusion Monsters in addition to Xyz Monsters (which are still mostly the main focus). Although none of the new Pendulum Monsters (or Link Monsters) will appear, expect to see a few cards from Arc-V (and VRAINS) to pop up.

All Duels shown use the current rules and rulings (excluding Link Summoning) at the time they were written. If you need a more detailed explanation of the game's rules, go to yugioh-card.com to find a digital version of the rulebook, as well as other vital information. With all that said...


Updates whenever I can finish a new Rank, always updating on the last full week of a month.

UPDATE: Rank 54 has been posted!!

Just wanted to ask, what is Sunset's Deck like?

Actually, theirs images of them on Google and they are artifacts.

Hooray, one of those rare Yugioh crossovers that actually seems to have some quality!

So, thoughts before the story:

The fact that you aren't using Pendulums is a little disappointing, but understandable. There's just not enough, either IRL or in the anime, to really use, and (speaking from experience) it's kinda awkward making your own. Though the fact that there's a possibility of other ARC-V cards being used fills me with hope that maybe there'll be one duel everyone can ENJOOOOOOYYYYY *laughs at his own stupid joke*

Thoughts after the story:

Holy hell, that was a pretty damn good introduction. I think you went a bit heavy on the description, though. We already know what the Equestria Girls Six look like, as well as Vinyl and Octavia, and you didn't even have them in outfits different from what we've seen them wear in the movies, so... Really, the only character you 'needed' to describe was Zecora. This same principle can be applied to when everyone started expositing about Sunset's Xyz Summon. Anyone who's reading this knows how to play the game, I can guarantee you. Having the characters start talking about the game mechanics out of nowhere like that when they (presumably) all already know how it works is just a tad annoying.

I like your choice for Sunset's deck. Chronomaly is one of my favorite archetypes and it's really fun to play. I also like your choices for the Numbers we're starting off with, and it intrigues me to see Number 80 showing up so early, considering the role it had in the show. Definitely looking forward to seeing who, if anyone, get Number 81 (also known as 'The Best F*cking Number').

I also have to wonder: will future chapters be about this long? Or will they be shorter?


To answer your questions:

The reason that the descriptions for the characters are so heavy was simply due to the fact that I wished to write this story so that anyone, including those who have never heard of MLP or Yu-Gi-Oh!, could pick up and read it. Feel free to ignore descriptions and explanations in the future (though there will be some new characters and old ones that have yet to recieve an EG counterpart appearing in later Ranks), but I just wanted to make sure that anyone who reads this will be able to get it.

And yes, I'm aware that Number 80 did show up early, considering its importance in the ZEXAL anime, but it was the best one to suit Octavia. Finally, future Ranks will tend to be a bit lengthy (the next one will be shorter, though), but I can assure you that, even though they may be long, you'll enjoy the journey through each one as you go.

Anyway, thanks to all of you for the faves and comments. I'm very glad that you all enjoyed this one. Keep checking back every month for new installments!

interesting though I personally would not give Sunset a Chronomaly deck but that's just me oh and I think that it would be perfect for Rainbow Dash to get her hands on Number 44: Sky Pegasus.


I went through several ideas for Sunset's Deck, but nothing else seemed to really fit her. I went with Chronomaly because I wanted to involve her with something mystic and unique, or something to that effect.

I will also say that her Deck isn't a straight Chronomaly, as I've included a few other neat cards as well (both in the story as well as the Deck I have in real life) that also fit her nicely as well.

I wander how sunset will get the other two Chronamaly Numbers


I've already got most of it figured out, so just keep an eye out for new episodes and you'll see very soon.

I think this story is doing good so far. I don't know what your plan is but if you plan to have Flash duel eventually I would recommend his deck based on the Heroic Challengers, or Rock and Roll based cards, either of them can fit with him really. Good luck with the rest of the story.


I actually have already built his Deck for the series. You'll have to wait and see what it is when it comes up, but I can assure you that, even if you don't like the "official" Flash Sentry in the cartoon, you might like mine a little bit better.

No problem. I'm actually a big Flash Sentry fan and I look forward to see how you portray him here.

From 0 to 10, you got a 10!!! Keep it up! :twilightsmile:


Thanks. I'm glad you liked it so much. As per your request, I shall, indeed, keep it up. :twilightsmile:

I was actually wondering how Sunset was gonna get the other Chronomaly Xyz monsters when I started this chapter. What a wonderful coincidence.

Gem Knights seem to be the choice deck people like to give Rarity and I no problem with and the fact that her number is based on the Rarity vs Giant Crab meme was funny when I realized it.


Heh... I have to be honest, I didn't know anything about a Rarity vs. Giant Crab meme when I chose her Number card. I simply chose that one because it was jewel-related. But now that you've told me about this, I'm even gladder that I made my choice.

Gotta love those happy coincidences. :twilightsmile:

I have to say, having been following this story since you started it, I've been inspired to write my own crossover story. Of course, that will be on the backburner behind the four stories I'm currently working on.


Well, good luck on that. And thanks for reading my series. :twilightsmile:

Is it just me, or is sunset dueling just like trey from yugioh zexal? Same deck (obviously), same strategy, everything!

Also so much irony because I'm binge watching yugioh zexal right now.

Curious to know what zexal morph will look like with sunset shimmer!


Well, considering that she does use a Chronomaly Deck, she does duel similarly to him. Of course, she does have some differences, such as having a few Synchro Monsters in her Deck.


I got featured? Awesome! :pinkiehappy: Thanks for the congratulations!

Could you use my character next?

His name is shining spoon,

he has orange skin, light blue eyes, and red and blue hair.

He likes to cook, so you could set him up with a deck based around fire and number 59: crooked cook. I would really appreciate it, as I am currently loving this story!


Well, it won't be in NEXT one (I write several episodes ahead of time), but I'll see what I can do for a future episode, as I'm always looking for new ideas.

I can't make any promises, but I'll try and do what I can.

So, when Sunset inevitably gets a rival in the Number hunt, may I make a request for his deck? I'd like to see him playing either Deskbots (whose level variety allows for the summon of Xyz monster of all ranks) or Rank 10 Trains (because they're a very overlooked archetype in general, I feel).


Well Deskbots won't show up due to the fact that most of their good cards are Pendulum Monsters, which won't appear at all. However, while they won't be a recurring rival, I do plan for someone to use the Level 10 Trains, since they'll have their own Number to use with them.

As for the rival, I've already come up with who it will be and what Deck they'll use. In fact, I've already written the episode they'll appear in. Just keep reading and you'll see them very soon.


Also, I like the fact that you made Manny Roar the Manticore a person in your story! Yay!:yay:
That is all.

This was another great chapter. I like how you made Sunset's strongest card a regular monster instead of an Xyz or number card to mix things up. What's funny is I read another yu-gi-oh crossover fanfic awhile ago where at the end Sunset said her favorite card was The Surpremacy Sun. Can't wait for the next chapter.


I'm glad you liked it. Making a human Manny Roar came as a result of me wanting to give Sunset a proper home to live in. The idea, as you read, was that Celestia and Luna would be the ones to give her a home. I chose Manny to be the apartment building's landlord due to several reasons: The first being that, since his counterpart is a manticore, he'd naturally be tough, so he'd be perfect for enforcing the rules of the building. The other reason was that I wanted him and Luna to be longtime friends, since Luna's Equestrian counterpart had long ago befriended a manticore, according to the Journal of the Two Sisters.

It's a bit complex, but I felt that would work out well.


That's pretty interesting that someone else also thought of that card as her favorite as well. I felt it fit her with the whole "Sun" theme that it had (it's also why she has Sun Dragon Inti and Moon Dragon Quilla in her Deck).

Where is this other crossover story? If it's on here, I'd love to see what it looks like.

7522179 It's titled Sunset vs Bakura. It's from an author named Shadow Kick who specializes in Equestria Girls yu-gi-oh crossovers. This is the first of several he's done so far, I think they're pretty good. Check them out if you want.


Well, she's more talkative in the fandom, so I felt safe having her speak here.


I actually have it all planned out. Just keep reading on as it updates and you'll find out. :raritywink:

Not everyone can write a Duel and make it interesting, but you have it down to a science. Loving the combos with Sunset's deck, and the assigned Number Cards to various characters. Also, I enjoy the Chronomaly reference to Sunset being "otherworldly". Looking forward to seeing the next chapter. Screw the watch list, this story is going straight to my favorites section.


Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. And the best is yet to come.

My progress in writing the duels came from hours of both watching the various Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, and reading the manga. I studied how the Duels were written very carefully so that I could accurately write them myself and make it very action-packed. And yes, Sunset being from another world was part of the inspiration for her Chronomaly Deck.

Three cheers for Fluttershy.


:yay: :yay: :yay:

...And an extra one for good luck. :yay:

Glad you liked it.

I FRIKIIIN LOVE IT!!!! and by no means i am saying this because I'm a naturia user myself. Great chapter thought waiting for the next one with great anticipation.
No seriously this is the first time I giggled like a fangirl towards something.
Fluttershy with clear wing was a great touch.
Keep the good work!

Woohoo! Two of the Arc V dragons for the win! Dark Rebellion Xyz and Clear Wing Synchro totally stole this chapter. Love the story how Rainbow got that card and gave it to Fluttershy. Even if Pendulum Summoning and Pendulum cards don't appear in this story, that was enough to make up for it.

It's certainly not fresh-cut spring flowers spewed across a babbling brook with a hint of lemon..." She then looked ahead and added, "And yes, everyone... the whole point of this scene was to make a reference to Ed, Edd, n' Eddy.

Also, that was hilarious and epic. Any Ed, Edd, n' Eddy reference automatically is.


Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. I was quite ecstatic about putting this chapter up, as it's one of my personal favorites so far. Keep an eye out next month for the next episode. :twilightsmile:


I had to put the reference in there, as Ed, Edd, n' Eddy is one of my favorite cartoons as well. And it's like I said: Although no Pendulums will appear in this series, other Arc-V cards will have a chance at showing up, and I couldn't leave out CWSD or DRXD for any reason.

Fun fact: Fluttershy's Deck (along with most of the others) is based on one of my real-life Decks that I've built, and I got the CWSD card for it from buying only ONE pack. Just one, and it was in there.

7581744 Wow, you are lucky. How many decks do you have in real life?
