A Duel Disk (デュエルディスク Dyueru Disuku) is a piece of Dueling equipment attached to the left forearm within the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise. They use a portable hologram generator to display Duel Monsters cards and in the case of the Mark 1, the player's hand. Cards that are played are placed on the Duel Disk's blade. Since their introduction in the anime and manga, they have become a fundamental necessity among Duelists.

The main body of the Disk retains the touch screen and single Magic and Trap Card Zone seen in D-Pads, while the Monster Card Zones and Pendulum Zones are located on the arm blade is composed of energy (likely the same "touchable Solid Vision" used in Action Duels) and is aligned parallel to the main body of the Disk. It is notably much lighter due to the streamlined body and virtually weightless Monster Card Zone. This enables duelists to run and jump without difficulties during Action Duels.
When it is used in conjunction with a larger Solid Vision Projector, and if that projector is damaged, the holograms disappear. However, normal Duels can occur without the use of a Solid Vision Projector.
If the user has no idea which card(s) he or she should pick, the duel disk generate a picture of those available cards on the screen, the user can swipe between those cards to pick card(s) he/she wants. In addition, players can use the touch screen to check the contents of their Extra Deck. Other details, such as Opponent's field and Graveyard, can also be checked.
These Duel Disks are also multipurpose tools with internet and communication functions, similar to tablets in real life. The hologram screens used to make video calls are also used to communicate with opponents from far across a Duel Field.
The disks have Auto-Eject function. The card(s) chosen by an effect will automatically be ejected by the disk so the user can pick it out.
The blade can be customized to be either a straight parallelogram, a shape resembling the layout of a D-Pad's card zone, or resemble a sword. It is currently unknown how much it can be customized.
It seems possible that one could set their Duel Disks to generate various visual effects when certain actions are done. One such example is when drawing a card, colorful stars and streaks of light appear along the card's trail, as seen when Yūya draws.
The Disks belonging to members of the Lancers have been modified to allow interdimensional travel (using Xyz Dimension technology as a reference) and initiate Action Duels without the need of a large Solid Vision Projector.
The Standard Dimension disk is a rectangular model with angular blade. The Deck Zone, unlike other Duel Disks, is placed diagonally pointing towards the thumb rather then parallel to the sides of the disk, while the Extra Deck is placed in a similar direction towards the body on the back, and both zones are stored within the Duel Disk while it is deactivated. The Graveyard is behind the blade, facing away from the Duelist as it was in previous Duel Disks, while the Magic/Trap Zone is located on the opposite side of the disk. Before Leo Akaba reinvented the Solid Vision, the people of the Standard Dimension are seen using Duel Disks that greatly resemble the *KaibaCorp Duel Disk.
The Deck Zone is stored within the Disk and unfolds when the Disk is activated (and like most Disks, the Deck Zone is on the top of the wrist). On the other side opposite of the Deck Zone is the Extra Deck Zone, a compartment where players store their Extra Deck into.

You Show Duel School
The You Show Duel School's Disks' overall design is similarly reminiscent of the Academia Disk in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. The difference is the colored borders covering the left and right slides, with the Graveyard slot aligned at the front border, as well as the "sword handle" on the end of the blade that is closest to the hand when active that is standard for all Fusion Dimension Disks. The tip of the sword blade is shaped like that of the Academia Disk, giving the blade an overall appearance of a scimitar.
