The Not-So-Super Roba Bros. is the twenty-ninth episode of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series and the seventh episode of Season 2.


Apparently one side-effect of inbreeding is the development of fake psychic powers.

While Tristan attempts to get to first base with Serenity, Joey duels an extremely loud character named Espa Roba whose entire family both look and sound exactly like him for no adequately explored reason. Apparently psychic powers are a byproduct of inbreeding. Episode is also available to watch at! (Sadly, not a real website)


  • The exchange between Joey and Rex where Joey says he took the Red-Eyes Black Dragon from Rex, but Rex doesn't remember it, is a reference to their duel in "The Plot Thinnens". Joey did win that card in the original series, but that wasn't mentioned in the abridged version.
  • Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha from Vegeta 3986 and MasakoX's Naruto The Abridged Series make a special guest appearance.
  • The Tristan x Serenity AMV was also uploaded to LittleKuriboh's YouTube account at the time. It was reuploaded here.
  • The ending bit is a spoof of how LittleKuriboh actually proposed to his first wife Abigail ("Safty") on the internet.
