Fanservice is the sixteenth episode of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series.
Also known as "the episode only Kroze likes"...
And that's probably for the Keith fanservice.
In the dead of the night, the minor characters decide to seize their chance to shine and go off to have an adventure.
- The opening scene references Aqua Teen Hunger Force, which would frequently open with an establishing shot of a castle and Dr. Weird saying "Gentlemen, behold!" in an opening segment that had absolutely nothing to do with the plot.
- Tristan references The Goonies, with Bakura asking if he could be Corey Feldman, a lead role in the movie. Later in the episode, Tristan calls Pegasus One-Eyed Willy, the movie's antagonist.
- Téa references the late actor River Phoenix in the movie Stand By Me, which Feldman also shared a role in.
- Bakura's line, "I'm surrounded by wankers", references the famous line, "I'm surrounded by idiots", from The Lion King.
- "Oh Yeah" by Yello plays during Bandit Keith's obligatory fanservice scene.
- "By the way, this is a 2001 parody."
- The song being chanted by Pegasus and the ancient cult is "Hooked on a Feeling" by Blue Swede.
- Yami Bakura's line as his scene is cut by the ending credits is a reference to Monty Python's Spanish Inquisition sketch.
