No matter how big of a challenge you are facing in Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel, players don’t technically have to go into these battles alone. The card game offers a particular type of item called Mates, which ultimately act as cheerleaders on the duel field. There are more than a dozen of these to collect, but each bears its own distinct reaction animations that change based on how you are performing in a match.

Mates can be collected through three different methods in Master Duel: purchasing them from the Shop menu, completing mission milestones, and finishing the Duel Pass. As every Mate is exclusive to one of these three routes, here are all Mates that are currently available and how you can earn them.
