Kaijudo Wiki

The Original Duel Masters were the first Duel Masters shown in flashbacks in the Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters series.


When a war between humans and Kaiju that threatened to destroy the entire world erupted, five human wizards banded together with the Creature Monarchs to end the war.

The Creature Monarchs willingly sacrificed their mana energy, so that the Duel Masters might create the mystical veil that has since separated the human and Kaiju worlds.

It appears the plan was originally to allow the Monarchs to recover their strength and awaken before sending them across the Veil so they might rule their respective civilizations again, but it was revealed that at some point, the Order of the Kaijudo Duel Masters betrayed the Kings' trust by periodically siphoning off their mana, keeping them in hibernation for millennia. The Quest for the Gauntlet storyline reveals that the Duel Masters used the original mana taken from the Monarchs to create the First Gauntlet, which was used to shape the Veil; however, it proved dangerously powerful, resulting in the demise of the first Darkness Civilization master.
