Skill (スキル, Sukiru) is a special rule characteristic of Speed Duels featured in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime.

Skills are special effects that each player can only use once per Duel. They may possess a number of effects, like drawing extra cards, increasing one's LP or enhancing a monster's ATK. While still ambiguous, it seems that each Duelist has a unique kind of Skill.[1]

On most occasions, Skills are activated by the line around the user's clothing glows, and the effect applies.
