With ten star chips each, Yugi, Joey, Mai and the others head back to Pegasus's castle ready for their chance to duel him. As the three submit their star chips to enter, the guard stops Tristan, Bakura and Taya as they don't even have duelling gloves. But determined to get in, Mai flirts with the guard and they all sneak in, shutting the guard outside. Inside the castle they find Bandit Keith who is also waiting for his duel with Pegasus. He tells them that they'll have to wait for the current duel to end first, a duel between Kaiba and Pegasus.

As the gang looks down, they see Kaiba awaiting Pegasus's arrival so that they can duel. Pegasus enters the room and begins to taunt Kaiba, but he is unfazed. He is here to rescue his brother and nothing else matters. Pegasus points out to Kaiba that they have an audience and Kaiba spots Yugi and the gang. Kaiba is shocked but not surprised to see that Yugi has managed to regain the star chips he needed and Pegasus is also pleased that Yugi has passed all the ‘tests' he has been set.

Kaiba challenges Pegasus to use the duelling disc system, but Pegasus plays with it, arguing that it wouldn't be fair as he doesn't even know how to use it. He agrees to duel with the system, but only if Kaiba lets another player play the cards in Pegasus's place. Kaiba is confused but things become clear as two guards drag in Mokuba. Pegasus tells Kaiba that Mokuba (still missing his soul) will duel in his place.

The others are shocked to learn that Kaiba is not just fighting to rescue his brother, but that Mokuba's is at stake. Yugi now realises why Kaiba was so desperate to win the duel they fought on the castle roof. Pegasus warns Kaiba that if he loses this battle, his soul will also become trapped inside a card forever. Kaiba refuses to duel against Mokuba and agrees to use the traditional duelling simulator.

As the room changes and an arena descends, Yugi warns Kaiba that he must trust in the Heart of the Cards and that he should be careful of the Millennium Eye, but Kaiba ignores him. Pegasus begins his turn by playing two cards, a monster in defence mode and a second card, both face down. On Kaiba's turn, he has a Blue Eyes White Dragon in his starting hand but is uneasy about playing it yet. Instead he plays a card face down but also plays the Rude Kaiser in attack mode and destroys Pegasus's monster.

Not concerned by the attack, Pegasus begins to taunt Kaiba as he plays the Parrot Dragon. But as Pegasus attacks, Kaiba activates the Mesmeric Control, reducing its attack power by 800. Once again unfazed, Pegasus continues to toy with Kaiba, just as he did when duelling Yugi. Kaiba begins to wonder whether Pegasus has known what he is doing before he does it.

Determined to crush Pegasus, Kaiba decides to play his first Blue Eyes, but as he does so Pegasus interrupts to activate his magic card, Prophecy. Like a guessing game, if Pegasus can guess if the card's attack power is above or below 2000, it will become Pegasus's. Not only guessing the card's attack power, Pegasus also announces what the card is, shocking Kaiba who does not understand the power of the Millennium Eye.

He then decides to use the Millennium Eye to scout out Kaiba's hand. Learning that Kaiba has both Crush and Saagi in his hand, Kaiba plays a card face down, ready to counteract the combo that shut down Yugi's attack force during Kaiba's last duel (Face Off: Part 2). As Kaiba plays the combo, Pegasus's Negative Energy card increases the Dark Clown's attack points meaning it is too strong to host the virus. He then plays the Dark Rabbit which, powered up by the Negative Energy, destroys the Dark Clown and halves Kaiba's life points in one attack.

With Kaiba's life points down to 1000 and Pegasus sitting at an untouched 2000, does the Duel Monsters champion have any chance of defeating the game's creator, especially with the Millennium Eye helping his opponent?
Taya:"But you have to let us in! We're the cheerleaders!"

Kemo:"Oh no, ya don't! Whad'dya think this is, a high school football game!"

Kaiba:(To Pegasus) "Where's my brother?"
Pegasus: "What? No 'hello'? No 'how are you'? I thought we were friends Kaiba-boy. Don't tell me my kidnapping Mokuba and siezing control of your company has put a rip between us; it was nothing personal.

Joey: (to Kimo) Would you mind tellin' housekeeping I like my pillows extra fluffy?
Mai: You're a doll!

(When Kaiba is about to play his first Blue Eyes)

Pegasus: Stop right there, I would like to play a little guessing game.

Kaiba: WHAT? We are in a middle of a duel here.

Pegasus: I know, BUT that is exactly what my trap card says. I play Prophecy, it allows to guess whether the card my opponent is about to put down's attack power is over or under 2000.If I am right, I get the card my opponent was gonna play. I say higher!

(Kaiba was surprised)

Pegasus: But wait, I see Blue, I see White, could it be? Could it be the Blue Eyes White Dragon? Is it? Am I right?


Mai: So basically, this is going to intimidate us.
Croquet: Why would he do that?
Joey: Cuz he's a grade A nutcase.

Kaiba: Okay, we will duel with my new duel disk system!
(Then throws the disk system to Pegasus)
Pegasus: What is this? Do I roll it?
(Then rolls the disk)
Kaiba: Errrrr, cut the theatrics!
Pegasus: Ooo, he is serious boys.

Pegasus: " Watch youself Kaiba your in my world now."

Bandit Keith:Well,Well,Well...If it isn't Joey and his little Punk Squad!

Joey:You slimebucket! Come here!

Goofs and Nitpicks
  • In this episode, when Kaiba is waiting for Pegasus, he has a few new flashbacks about Mokuba. In the second flashback, i think, it shows Mokuba saying, "I miss you, Kaiba." Why would Mokuba call his own brother by his last name?
  • When Seto summoned Sagi the Dark Clown, his attack power was 900 when it's suppose to be 600.
  • There was a major goof in CVC 1 and 2. When Kaiba destroyed Pegasus's Parrot Dragon, Pegasus's life points should have gone down to 1400, but they stayed where they were. Later in CVC 2, when Kaiba destroyed the Blue Eyes Toon Dragon, Pegasus's life points went down to 1200. You can see them going down from 1400 there. If you think it really did go down but they just didnt show it(like in Yugi V Joey when Yugi destroyed the Black Skull Dragon) you're wrong. At the end of this episode, Yugi says Kaiba is already 1000 points behind, but hes really only 400 points behind. A lot of goofs having to do with Life Points in these episdoes.
  • In the 8 past episodes, Bakura has left his Millennium Ring hanging outside his sweater but in this episode the ring is in his sweater, what's up with that?
  • When Pegasus plays his trap card "Prophecy", I tis actually a magic card by the color of the card.
  • For Mokuba calling his brother "kaiba" I think it was a script change that they missed. Kaiba's name is really Kaiba Seto and his brother is Mokuba Seto. So they forgot to change it one time. If you read the manga in Shonen Jump you'll see.
  • CORRECTION: Kaiba is their last name, not Seto. In

    Previous Episode

    s, Yugi reffered to Kaiba as "Seto Kaiba", so Mokuba did goof when he called his brother Kaiba instead of Seto
  • CORRECTION:Kaiba WAS his first name in the Japanese version. In the Japanese version it is "Kaiba Seto". In the English version it is "Seto Kaiba".--Don't correct something unless you know what you are talking about.
  • CORRECTION-Actually, Seto is his first name in Japan as well. The only reason his name is Kaiba Seto in Japan is because last names come first in Japan. So his last name is Kaiba and his first name is Seto, even in Japan. So don't go talking about things YOU don't know about.
  • comments on Correction: In Japan, you state your last name before your first, so for instance you'd say last first, if it was your name, so since Kaiba is the family name, you say the family name first, Kaiba Seto ((family, first)) In America however, you say the first name first, then family name, so Seto Kaiba... It's just that in Japan you state family name, followed by personal name... ^_^ Just the way it's done ^_^
  • Comment on the Corrections: most of the Asian nations (eg, China, Korea, Japan, etc) put their family name first and then their first name second.
  • Actually, Prophecy isn't a trap card, it could be a Quick-Magic card which can be played in the some of the same situations as trap cards.
