Synopsis
Arkana is certain that he will win the duel as he plays one card face-down. Yugi summons Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts, hoping to direct damage Arkana. However, Arkana flips his face-down card, which can destroy monsters so that each player has same number of monsters on their sides. Since he doesn't have any monsters on the field, Yugi's two monsters are destroyed.

Arkana then plays a magic card, Dark Magic Curtain. It lets both players give up half of their Life Points in exchange to summon a high-level monster without having to sacrifice. Arkana gives up half of his life points (750) and summons another Dark Magician (obviously, he has more than one) and orders him to attack Yugi. It seems hopeless, but Yugi points out that Dark MAgic Curtain works for everyone, and plays his Dark Magician Girl (after giving up half of his Life Points 350). Dark Magician Girl only has 2000 ATK points and Arkana commands his male Dark Magician to attack the female one. What Arkana didn't realize was that Dark Magician Girl gets 300 extra points from each Dark Magician in the graveyard. Arkana still thinks that his Dark Magician should've won, but then he sees his own Dark Magician (the first one) behind the Dark Magician Girl. Yugi tells him that Dark Magician Girl gets the boost from Dark Magicians from the both Graveyards. Arkana loses, and the Dark Energy Disk is getting closer to him. Yugi unlocks himself and finds a Locator Card in the box as well. Arkana screams, but then he reveals that he has an extra key up in his sleeve. He takes it out, but his hand suddenly becomes frozen! Marik then sends Arkana's mind to the Shadow Realm. Yugi and Marik have a long talk. Marik says that he should have the Pharaoh's power. He explains that he needs the three Egyptian God Cards and the Millenium Puzzle to rule the world. Yugi asks him where the three cards are, and Marik tells him that he already has two of them and knows where to find the third one. Marik also tells Yugi that he'll send another one of his mind-slaves to Battle City to duel and defeat Yugi. He tells him to beware of the Quiet One (The Rare Hunter). Marik also says that the Quiet One will use an Egyptian God Card! Yugi's friends then bust the door and rush in to rescue Yugi. Meanwhile at his place, Marik tells his friend Odion (yet another Rare Hunter) to send the Quiet One to destroy Yugi Muto. Then... even worse... Marik takes off his cape... (Marik is naked when he takes off the cape) and says something weird about... how... he... willl... rulllllle... the... world...
Notes
  • Marks the first time Yami calls on the Dark Magician Girl.
  • Quotes
    Arkana: Bu.. but! I was told you only had one Dark Magician!
    Yami Yugi: Well you're partially right, but mostly misinformed.

    Yugi: Not even you deserve to be put in the Shadow Realem!

    Goofs and Nitpicks
  • At one point, Pandora said he had set a Monster card when he had actually set a Trap card.
  • How could Marik see the Hieratics on Ra if they can only be seen through Ra's Light itself?
  • After Arkana attacked Yugi's Dark Magician Girl it's attack was 2600. Arkana sent a Magician of Black Chaos to the graveyard at the beginning of the duel after Yugi activated Card Destruction. Dark Magician Girl's attack should have been at 2900 since she gets 300 extra ATK point for every Dark Magician and Magician of Black Chaos in either players graveyard. Arkana's Magician of Black Chaos' right elbow sticks out and is clearly indentable in the middle of his first hand.
