So the cream puff thing with Bakura is a real, offical, thing.
… Actually. The only thing different about Yami Bakura from Ryou is the little tufts of hair (which I suppose could be explained away as a particularly stubborn bout of bedhead, and I highly doubt it looks that stylized if it were in real life, as I supposed ages ago with Mrs Mouto’s hair), and possibly the eye colour.
However, it is known for eyes to change colour based on extreme mood changes (anger, lust, etc - eyes really do “flash” but it’s a much more subtle effect), and red eyes are a permutation of brown pigment combined with how light refracts it so also depends on others’ perceptions. This leads to some very interesting headcanons about albinism for YB and Ryou, in particular, but that’s about it.
For Yugi and Yami, their main difference (aside from the height, and that’s mostly in the anime/Duelist Kingdom, but I digress) is the hair. I imagine that Yugi is like any other individual and still has a latent habit of running his hands through his hair sometimes.
Of course, the very front, middle bang of his is too short for it to look like Yami’s. That might be attributed to magic, as Atem’s hair had the long middle bang that went straight up (probably as a result of styling), and if I were to stretch a guess, Yugi tugging on it and playing with it when he’s stressed. That would fracture that hair and possibly even provoke a bit of a bald spot if he worried at it too badly.
Should that be the case, then Yugi’s hair would end up either the way of his grandfather:
With the lock permanently short from either genetics (baby hair, as some adults never outgrow it around their temple) or stress (I have no doubt that Sugoroku had a high stress life and continued to have one as the result of the general meddling of the Millennium Items).
Or like Atem:
As he toyed with the hair less from a reduced amount of stressors in his life after Yami/Atem died, it would grow to the length of the rest of his bangs.
The stylization of their eyes - being either tsurime (slanted and sharp) or tareme (big and wide) - is a tool that used in both mangas and animes to visually represent personality characteristics at a glance for one’s audience and nothing more. Though there are eyes similar to Yugi’s - bell-shaped - in general someone would draw these characters according to where best their ethnic origins are. Japanese people would have almond-shaped eyes, the Ishtars would have roughly the same, but would be influenced by the locals of the region, etc etc.

I beat Bravely Default tonight, and I beat the extra dungeon. Now I am going through playing as the classes I think the characters would choose at any given time. I’m also writing short ficlets all centered around asterisk choices and such. Maybe I’ll post some sometime.

…I have to admit, I hate it when super hard extra bosses who push you to the brink don’t actually give you anything decent when you beat them. How is a useless bragging rights item in any way motivation for me to ever EVER want to fight the extra boss of Bravely Default ever again? At least in the Tales series you get some of the best weapons in the game or extra storyline stuff during extra boss battles. This just felt like an easter egg with little further point, which makes me sad because this is probably the only major complaint I’ve had about this game the entire time I’ve played it, and so close to the end too…
