Character Description: Esper Roba

Esper's first appearance is in episode 58, where Yugi's pal Joey challenges him to a duel (in Battle City). During the duel, he throws Joey and the spectators off by acting like he has ESP, which makes Joey frustrated and nervous.

Joey managed to figure out Roba's tricks in episode 58 when Roba mistakenly thought Joey had two Graceful Dice [Angel's Die], when in fact one of them was a Skull Dice [Devil's Die]. Joey used that fact to trick Roba and reveal that someone else (one of his brothers) was eyeing his cards from above. This forced Roba to play fair and resort to his best card: Jinzo [Jinzo Psycho Shocker]. Roba lost when Joey gambled (and won) on a Roulette Spider card that made Roba's monsters destroy each other.

When Joey beats him and he falls to the ground, Joey sees that a fallen ear-piece is there too. Esper explains that he cheats in duels to gain a good reputation, so he could defend all his little brothers from bullies. In conclusion, Esper gives Joey his Jinzo, locator cards, and his promise never to cheat again.

Esper lives with his four younger brothers, and his family comes from a line of carnival folk.
