Yu-Gi-Oh! | 2001
Japanese "anime" series based on the comic book series that follows the adventures of Yugi, a smaller than average high school student -- and an easy target for bullies. When his grandfather, a local game shop manager, gives him an ancient Egyptian riddle called the "Millennium Puzzle," Yugi pieces it together and unexpectedly becomes the powerful "Game King," an alter-ego. When Yugi gets into sticky situations, the "Game King" takes over and protects Yugi and his friends.
