Notes

  • Quotes
    Kaiba: Yugi! You....You saved my life-points!
    Yami Yugi: I activated my trap card 'Multiply', blocking your attack, and leaving my teammate unharmed!

    Mask of....Light?: Accepting this duel was a HUGE mistake!

    Mask of Light: You won't be seeing your little brother again, Seto Kaiba.
    Mask of Dark: But where your going, that will be the least of your worries. Shining Abyss,ATTACK!
    Say hello to the Shadow Releam!
    ***Kuriboh's pop up***

    Kaiba: You! You saved my life-points!
    Mask of Light & Dark: WHAT HAPPENED?!?! Yami Yugi: Its quite simple really. You activated my magic card, "Mulitply" which mulitplied my Kuriboh. Now your attack won't affect my teammate!!

    Yugi: (thinking) Card Destruction! This card can be useful...it allows all players to discard their hand. But what if Kaiba has a strategy? This could ruin the duel for both of us!

    Yami Yugi:Kaiba! If you don't save me like how I saved you,I'll fall into the shadow relm!

    Kaiba:(thinking)Then Good Ridence...

    Goofs and Nitpicks
  • Kaiba used the Ring of Destruction in this episode, however in the GBA games the card is called Bell of Destruction. The card was changed because Bell of Destruction features a ring made up of hand grenades, and this was probably deemed inappropriate given recent events.
  • In the card game, Mask of Restrict prevents all players from tributing any monsters for any purpose, however in the show Mask of Restrict only prevents Yugi and Kaiba from tributing their own monsters. It doesn't prevent Umbra and Lumis performing tributes, nor does it prevent Yugi and Kaiba from tributing Umbra and Lumis's monsters. (Not actually a goof, but I'm posting it to stop people posting that it is one)
  • When Yugi summoned Kuriboh and set Multiply, the set card appeared first however the first card he placed was actually the Kuriboh.
  • If you look closely, Kuriboh was already on the duel disk before Yugi even played it.
  • The Mask of Dispell card states that it can be used on a face-up magic card, and decreases the lifepoints of the player by 500 each turn. It never says that it negates the action of the magic card, yet it negates Yugi's multiply card.
  • In regards to the confusion about Mask of Ristrict, Umbra sets the magic card that prevent him for taking any negative effect from his own cards - So wouldn't that explain why aren't they effected by Mask of Restrict? That is not a goof
