Téa Gardner, known as Anzu Mazaki in the Japanese version of the anime and manga, is a protagonist in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime/manga series. Téa does not usually play games with Yugi Mutou and his friends, but in the beginning of the anime, she could beat Joey Wheeler in Duel Monsters, and was later shown to be more than competent against others. Téa is also very good at dancing and wants to be a professional dancer when she grows up.
In the Fiction Wrestling Multiverse (FWM), Gardner is a professional wrestler currently signed to Apex Caliber Wrestling (ACW) on the Ignition brand.

At the beginning of the manga, Anzu has a spunky, tomboyish personality and was able to scare away Joey and Tristan after they bully Yugi. She's very kindhearted, strong-willed and supportive.
In the second series anime, she is usually shown to be cheering her friends and standing up for what she believes in; it is also shown that she will do anything to help her friends. She plays the role of the strong, down-to-earth, caring, compassionate voice of reason of the group.
She is also shown to have more affection towards Yugi than the Pharaoh in this series (hinted at during the final Duel, and during the Waking the Dragons arc). She is also shown to get easily jealous, such as when Mai (initially), Rebecca and Vivian flirt with Yugi—sometimes to the point where she has an explosive outburst.
Despite her strong bond of friendship, Téa is not above keeping the others, mainly Joey and Tristan, in line when they get out of control or act foolishly. She often says "I need more female friends", yet she loves them deeply.
Personal Life Edit
Gardner is in a relationship with fellow Yu-Gi-Oh character and ACW professional wrestler Yugi Mutou.
In Wrestling Edit
Téa has a gift when it comes to wrestling under hardcore rules as she's a decent brawler and willing to take risks like she did back in the Blood & Ink Division of ECW. She's also well-talented as an experienced technical wrestler and high-flyer.
