Various Feuds (2014–2016) Edit
Animation Heavyweight Champion (2017–present) Edit
He is fairly condescending and scathing to everyone, with the exception of Mokuba, the only person he is consistently shown to treat with love and care. However, Kaiba has compassion for children—especially orphans (as he himself was one and knew what it felt like). He is also shown, deep down beneath his stony, ice-cold exterior, to be incredibly lonely, and wishes to be more open with people, but is unable to do so because of his belief that everyone is alone.
This portrayed personality is also very likely because of the years of systematic emotional and psychological abuse of his adoptive father (although this is played down in the English version of the anime). At various points during the series, he opens up momentarily, performing kind acts, though always covering them up with sarcasm, and denying them if asked. Like the Pharaoh, pride is Kaiba's strength and weakness, never backing down from a fight and giving everything in a Duel. This results in his sense of superiority and sense of arrogance, making it extremely difficult to earn his respect, and causes him to look down on and treat others as inferior until they do so.
Personal Life Edit
Seto Kaiba is the elder brother of Mokuba Kaiba.
