Season: 1 2 3 4 All
-27. The Battle Starts! A Shadow Game!

Back in Egypt three men discovered the Millennium Puzzle. They were relieved that it wasn't stolen just yet. Something happened to them. Then we cut to a young boy named Yugi Motou, of Domino High School. It was lunch time; Yugi was building cards when one of his classmates asked him to play basketball with him. Yugi refused his offer b/c he knows he'll end up losing anyways.
Yugi said he always wanted to play with them, but he has so many games to play with. He remembers that he had the still unsolved Millennium Puzzle. Yugi said it was secret and now it would be revealed and asked us *the audience* what it was. He was being teased by his classmate Jounouchi. He was playing keep away with Yugi's box. He said keeping this golden box made him sick b/c he was so girly. Jounouchi said if he wanted the box back he must fight them like a man. Yugi shouted he hated violence and didn't want to fight with him. Jounouchi said he shouted like a girl. Honda comes in and told Jouounchi to give it back to Yugi. Jou teases Honda b/c he just changed classes from freshman year. Honda was saying something to Jou, but asked Yugi what was in the box. Yugi said he could look at it, but just don't lose the pieces inside of it.
Anzu took back the box, and said to leave Yugi's things alone. Jounouchi replied that they were just teaching Yugi how to be a man. A classmate of theirs, Miho didn't know that they were in the room. Miho said she wanted to get lunch but she saw the long scary lines that she didn't. She asked the boys to get lunch for her. Jounouchi yelled at Anzu some more, and Miho interrupted that she's really hungry; the guys said they were on their way and ran off.
In the hallway, Honda asked why he was coming along. Jouounchi replied he couldn't stand Anzu. They bumped into the hall monitor, Ushio. The bully asked if they were bulling a certain classmate. Jounouchi was going to reply, but Honda shut his mouth with his hand, and said they weren't. Ushio walked away, but told them to remember that the uniforms had to be buttoned all the way. Honda let go, Jouounchi yelled at him for holding his mouth shut. Honda said the hall monitor would have kicked their asses, if they said anymore.
Anzu and Yugi were in the classroom. Yugi said saying all that stuff to them, Jounouchi and Honda ran away. Anzu said to him he had to protect himself, but was happy to help him out. She said what was in the golden box. Yugi told Anzu to keep a secret of the what was in the box. He opened the box; Anzu said it was really beautiful. Yugi said it was a puzzle and it took him about forever to solve. He explained how he was digging around the shelves in the Game Shop and discovered the box. Grandpa was about to sell it, but Yugi liked it so much, Grandpa let him keep it. Yugi said it was from Egypt, b/c of the hieroglyphics on the box. Yugi believe the puzzle will grant a wish to whoever would solve it. Anzu wanted to know what was his wish, but of course he wouldn't tell.
Jounouchi showed Honda the piece of the puzzle w/ the eye. Jounouchi said he took it out from Yugi's box when he wasn't looking. Honda said he was mean and should give it back to Yugi. Jounouchi ignored his statement and asked he was supposed to be getting lunch for Miho. She leaned against the wall and cried out she was hungry. Honda ran to her and said he would get the lunch for her. Jounouchi threw the piece out the window, into the water.
It was after school, Ushio was coaching the other monitors exercises. He caught Yugi and asked if he was being bullied by some of the classmates in his class. Yugi denied it. Ushio said he didn't have to worry anymore, and from that point on, he would be his bodyguard. Yugi ran away and thought he was a weirdo.
Yugi comes home, and to his surprise, Anzu was there. She said she hasn't come over to play for such a long time. Grandpa asked if he was still solving the puzzle, he warned him that there was a curse among it. He said that whoever would solve it, would have to associate with the Darkness Games. Anzu said it was a bad idea to solve it now. Yugi told them he was curious what the Darkness Games were and still believe the puzzle would grant him the wish. Yugi said he was more determined to solve the puzzle. Grandpa told Yugi to give it back to him so he can sell it.
It was late, and Yugi was still solving the puzzle. Grandpa was eavesdropping Yugi solving the puzzle, but gave him props for trying to solve the puzzle, Grandpa said he tried to solve it himself and never could do it. He has faith in Yugi, but was afraid that he would find out the Darkness Games. Yugi fell asleep on his desk.
It was the next day of school. Ushio wanted to show Yugi that he beat up Jounouchi and Honda. Jounouchi accused Yugi of setting up him up. Yugi denied it, and never wanted it to be that way. The bully said he wasn't done beating Jouounchi and Honda into a bloody pulp yet. Yugi told him that they were his friends and shield them. He said they never teased him at all. He wanted to teach him how to be a man. The bully said his dues were up, and had to pay him 200,000 yen.
Yugi was at home, and counted the money in his piggy bank. Yugi didn't have enough, and had no clue where to get the money. Some how all the worries, made him piece the puzzle more and more. There was one piece missing, he started to freak out. He decided to go back to school and find the missing piece.
Jounouchi and Honda were walking away from school. Honda told Jounouchi that those monitors could have done more damage to them, if Yugi wasn't there. Jounouchi looked into the water way, and remembered that the piece of Yugi's puzzle was still in there. He jumped into the water.
Yugi was running to school, and the bully stopped him. Yugi said he didn't have the money yet and will pay him next time; he just wanted to look for something he left in school. The bully said the time was up, Ushio said he would have to beat him up.
Jounouchi found the piece of the puzzle. Honda threw him a towel, and said he didn't want to see his friend soaking wet, and just would return the towel back to him.
Honda saw Yugi following Ushio somewhere. Yugi was getting his butt whipped. Jounouchi and Honda stopped Ushio; they said they would take Yugi's place. Ushio said that they would never be able to win. They got their butt whipped too. Jounouchi put the piece into Yugi's hand. Ushio started to beat Jounouchi and Honda. Yugi said they got beat up for him, and realized the last piece was in his hand. Yugi put the last piece in. The puzzle started to glow; a large shadow appeared with the third eye on the forehead. A gust of wind blew...
Ushio turned around, "Hey, it's time to play a game." As soon as the bully knew it, his waist was tied with a rope on top of the school roof, and saw freaky, scary looking Yami Yugi. Yami asked if he wanted to play a game. Ushio agreed to play the game. Yami told him it was a special game, it was a Darkness Game. Yami had the rope tied to him too. Yami slid down the roof with a deck of cards sticking to the roof. The rope was tied to each of the player and the game was simple, he explained. Yami said, if he wanted the money he would have to win and get to the top where the pile of money was. Each player were to pick a card, the number on the card determined how many paces they had to walk to the top. Ushio drew a 10, Yami drew a king, Ushio drew a 2, Yami drew a queen, Ushio drew a 3, Yami drew a 9, Ushio a 6, and Yami drew a jack. Yami was almost up to the top. Ushio drew a joker, Yami said it didn't count, Yami drew an Ace, and he won. Ushio crawled to where Yami was, and tried to punch him. Yami missed the punch, but Ushio broke the rope between them and Yami fell onto the ground. Ushio found a deck of playing cards instead of money. Yami's third eye glowed; he had said to Ushio, he had lost the game. He was going to send him to his own dark place in his mind.
Early in the morning, students found him all freaked out. A bunch of girls were gossiping how Ushio went nuts.
Yugi was happy to have solved the puzzle, and saw Jounouchi and asked how he was. Jounouchi asked him the whole friendship riddle and asked Yugi if they could hang out some time. Jounouchi couldn't take the mushiness, and told Yugi he had to go class, and his shoe fell off. Yugi ran after him with his shoe.

-18. A Beautiful Teacher with Concealed Face

Yugi is walking home from school when Jounouchi and Honda join him. Yugi doesn't like Honda walking home with them but he doesn't say it out loud.
Then Jounouchi says that they have something to talk about with Yugi, Hondagoes crazy and tells Jounouchi not to tell Yugi. Yugi wonders if it's about Honda while Honda is stating the fact that Yugi's got a grudge against him and will tell the whole school. Jounouchi says that Yugi isn't that kind of person. So Jounouchi tells Yugi that Honda is in love with the student librarian, Miho Nosaka a.k.a. Ribbon. He then explains that they need a way to get Ribbon to notice Honda and was wondering if they could get something from Yugi's game shop. Yugi agrees and they buy a blank Jigsaw Puzzle from Yugi's grandpa. But Honda doesn't know what to write because he's never written a love letter before, so he asks Yugi to write it.

Later that night Yugi is stuck writing Honda's Love Jigsaw Puzzle and he ends up writing;
My beloved Ribbon
You look perfect in your yellow ribbon
I love you more than anything in the universe.
From Hiroto Honda.
In the morning the trio get together before school to put it in Ribbon's (Miho) desk. The scene then changes to Ms. Chono who's walking to her classroom right when the bell rings. All of the male teachers are talking about how they want to date her, and how she expelled 15 kids in just 6 months. Also that the students call her "The Wicked Witch of Expel".

The Vice Principal asks Ms. Chono how her date went, she says that he wasn't up to her standards and that she needed to get to class. Ms. Chono is now in the bathroom (well i'm assuming the bathroom since their's a sink and a mirror). Then she punches the mirror because the Vice Principal reminded her that her other date had dumped her. She gets angry but calms down because she needs to redo her make up.

At class Ms. Chono announces that it's 'Inspection Time', or time to empty your contents on your desk. Yugi and Jouncouhi freak out, but Tristan just stares with disbelief.

Meanwhile, Ribbon's found the gift in her desk and she wonders what it is. Ms. Chono then is happy because the students look 'terrified' and 'guilty'. Then she walks down the aisle to Ribbon's desk and picks up the present from Honda. Then Ms. Chono takes it to her desk, opens it, and starts putting it together. Then she asks who gave this to Miho (Ribbon, i like switching off names...) and Honda stands up to find out that Jounouchi and Yugi are standing too. Then Ms. Chono asks why all three of them are standing and then realizes that she can just finish the puzzle to figure out who sent it. Then Yugi lets Yami take over (no one knows the difference yet though) and he turns the Jigsaw Puzzle into a Shadow Game, so as much as she hurts others, she will hurt herself. Ms. Chono finsihes the puzzle and is announcing the name when her face clicks off in jigsaw puzzle pieces. The make up is removed and all that is left is Ms. Chono's ugly face, which the other kids in the class point out happily. She then runs out of the room and threatens to get them if any of them tell anoyone else her secret. Yugi then comes back with no memory of what just happened.

Later, Tristan screws up his courage and asks Ribbon out directly. But she refused him. The three are now friends! ;)

-3. A New Battle! Attack of the Handsome Boy

It was the beginning of school, Joey was so happy that the
tournament have gained him muscle.

Miho sees Bakura, "Hey, pretty boy Bakura, how've you been?"
Bakura's ring started to glow, and for a second, Yami
Bakura appeared, then Bakura changed back.

Yugi asked if he was getting used to the new school. Bakura
felt pain again, and excused himself to the bathroom.

Joey said that he's going to the bathroom because he had
diarrhea and was going to fart up a storm. xD

Miho didn't find it funny, so she slapped him. She said he
a big mouth, and should keep it to himself. Joey said, "Hey
you never know!"

Bakura was in the bathroom, ripped opened his shirt *He has
a thing with ripping opening his shirt*, still experiencing
pain and wondered why it was happening when Yugi was around
and something wants to come out of him. Yami B said
something, Bakura wanted to know whom it was. Yami B said
it was his other personality.

The boys were at gym class, and Joey was told he was
jogging to slow, and the gym teacher wanted him to hop like
a bunny instead of jogging. Tristan and Yugi were talking
how the teacher was being unfair to Joey. The teacher
caught them talking, and the two started to hop too.

Bakura was late to gym class, he said he wasn't feeling so
well. The teacher said he should stop making excuses for
flaunting himself to the girls and will have to run eight
more laps. Bakura said he wasn't lying; Joey, Yugi and
Tristan were standing up for Bakura.

The teacher told them, that they shouldn't be friends with
Bakura anymore b/c he's a troublemaker, by making his
friends crazy or even disappearing, that was why he
exchanged schools so many times.

The guys it couldn't be true, but Bakura said it was true.
Bakura said not to be friends with him anymore, and ran off
to jog.

Back in homeroom, the guys including the girls, said it was
gibberish that Bakura would do something like that, and
left school early because of his pain. Miho suggested go
visit him and prove to others that he wasn't a bad guy.

In Bakura's apartment you see rows and rows of dolls. He
was sitting at his desk, still wondering why he's in such
pain. Yami B talked to Bakura, less confusion, R (Ryou) is
Bakura and B is Yami Bakura. Here goes the conversation:

R: (Still in pain) Oh no, it's happening again. I have to
change schools again.
B: It's because of your friends.
R: It's the voice again.
B: It's that Millennium Puzzle that's causing your pain.
R: Who are you? Come out and show yourself.
B: I'm the other personality inside of you, in the
Millennium Ring.
R: Millennium Ring? (opens his shirt) You mean this thing?
B: Heheheh, you should know better. Once you put this thing
on, I went inside of your body.
R: I don't care what you are, what your intentions are, I
just want you out of my body, hurry get out!!
B: You want me out of your body? I've even helped you to
get friends. (Flashback of Ryou playing with sand as a
toddler) Don't you remember when you were a child, everyone
teased you and no one wanted to be your friend? And inside
you wanted friends so badly to play with you. I helped you
get friends and trapped them inside those dolls so you can
be with them forever.
R: All of my friends.are turned into dolls. because of the
Millennium Ring??
B: The Millennium Puzzle, has special powers inside, so
does the ring.
R: I know what your intentions are now, you want Yugi's
puzzle and hurt him. I won't let you hurt him.
B: I've been waiting in the Millennium Ring to take that
power, since you've put it on, now I have a vessel. Now I
can do my work.
R: What?
B: How about you take a nap just for a while?
R: What? No stop what you're doinggg!!!

Yami B comes out. The gym teacher was in the gym supply
warehouse. He sees Bakura.

Teacher: Heh, didn't you go home already?
YB: I'm going to send you to hell!!! (he points, a big
flash of light appears)

Back in Bakura's apt.
R: Huh, what just happened?
B: Don't worry about it. Heh, I feel the puzzle near by.
R: No! (feels pain again) Yugi you mustn't come up! (heads
to the door, rings the buzzer)

Yami Bakura takes over, the gang comes in, takes off their
shoes.
Miho asks if his pain has gone away, he replies that it was
nothing.
Joey notices all of his dolls, Yami Bakura said has
collection them.
Yugi said it was a game called Monster World, each time you
win, you win a doll. Yami B said it was his favorite game,
Yugi asks if he had it and wanted to play it. Miho said she
was excited and wanted to play too.
Yami B led them to the next room, where he had a whole
table set up. He told them to choose their characters, the
characters that looked them the most they should pick.
They went of to pick their characters, (heh, the dolls
looked EXCATLY like them.). Yugi thought something about
Bakura was different put couldn't put his finger on it.
Yami B thought to himself, that soon they play, he will get
their souls.

Yami B typed up the characters that were going to be played
onto the computer (I was surprised that he typed so fast).
Yugi was a magician, Tea was a magician, Miho was a gypsy,
Joey and Tristan were warriors. Joey with a sword and
Tristan with a gun.

Yami B explained how the game was going to be played. It
was like a RPG, there were two sides, the good and the bad.
The 5 were the good and if it wasn't predictable Yami B was
the bad. The guys were to find the demon, destroy it and
saving the king of the castle from the demon. They had to
ask people where the demon was, and go through forests and
such. If they were to counter the demon, they would have to
roll dice to play the number of the strength they rolled.
00 was the strongest counter to play and 99 you couldn't
attack at all.

Joey's doll walked into the tavern and asked where the
demon it was. To his surprise the guy looked like the gym
teacher. He told to look at the doll, and guess whom it
looked like. The doll spoke and said to save him, Joey
asked who called out his name. The doll said that they
shouldn't play the game before their souls get trapped too.
They ignored it and went on.

A demon appeared, Joey rolled a 13, killed the demon
They spotted a doll knocked down. Miho suggested help the
doll out. The doll said thank you for helping him up and
asked them to help find his saw for him in the forest. Yami
B set out the forest, and said there was 80% that the demon
would come out. The bunch of demons appeared in the forest.

Joey rolled the special dice; it was a diamond shaped die.
The red die was the first digit and the white dir was the
2nd digit. It was a 82, cannot attack
Tristan rolled the dice, it was 21, and attacked a demon.
Yugi rolled, it was 25, and turned one of the demons into a
cutesy fairy monster with a big pair of gloves, hehe it was
cute!
Miho rolled, 76, and got a sack of money
Tea rolled 00, and destroyed all the demons. I noticed her
wand looks like the DMG has.
They asked if they would see the demon soon.

The doll that lost the saw said they wouldn't have to look
anymore, it was their lucky day to be trapped in the game.
He turned into the demon, and it looked a lot like a Vorse
Raider w/ a face of a Summoned Skull.

YB rolled 00, he trapped her soul in the game. They asked
why he would do such a thing. He said it was beginning a
Dark Game. Miho was trapped in the doll and wondered why
everyone was so big, then she realized she became a doll.

YB explained they HAD to get 00 to save her.

Tristan rolled the dice and got 05, was body was trapped in
the doll too. Joey said he had to roll; his hand was
trembling, YB asked if he was nervous to roll. He said he
wasn't afraid of him and won't lose. Joey rolled a 99, YB
pointed, Joey went to Monster World.

YB was evilly laughing his pretty little head off and said
they have the worst luck and it was Yugi's turn to roll.

Yugi had a pissed off look on his face. Yugi volunteered
himself to be a doll because friends have to stick together
no matter what, and Tea volunteered herself as well. YB
said they were complete idiots for doing that. No one would
play for them, he has the this game. Then he saw Yami.

Yami said not to celebrate just yet. YB was surprised to
find another Yugi. Yami said he will take their place and
said to the gang they were in good hands, because why? He
was the king of the dice (huh???, That's what he said
*shrugs*). Then the recycled phrase, "Together we win, or
together we'll fall."

b: 26-Sep-1998

-2. A Violent Rival and a Greatest Pinch

Corrections: The gang doesn't find save the king, but they must find the demon that looked a lot like a Vorse Raider w/ a face of a Summoned Skull, as they call him the Demon King.

"Previously, on Yu-Gi-Oh."- Yami Yugi

Bakura had been experiencing pain because of his Millennium Ring, unbeknownst of him that his father gave him. After his first encounter of his `other', he discovers that Yami Bakura has been locking his friends in dolls in a game called Monster World. Because of it, poor Ryou has been changing school many times. The gang went to his apt. to prove to people he wasn't such a bad guy. Yami Bakura took over Ryou's body and played Monster World with the gang, all of them trapped in the dolls, Yami Yugi plays for the gang.

The gang encounters the Monster World Demon, they're all afraid of him, and the gang finally sees Yami Yugi for the first time, Tristan explains it's the spirit of Yugi's puzzle. Yugi said it was his first time meeting his other. Yami said they were in good hands, and they will win, he needs all of their faith and concentration on this dark game.

Yami Bakura sees the spirit of the Millennium puzzle. Yami told him to continue the game, this time YB said that the gang was in the dolls, he must roll the dice for them. They show each of the gang's HP, if they lose their HP, they die:

Tea: 18 Yugi: 22 Joey: 25 Tristan: 23 Miho: 15

Review of the game: Roll two special die, red and white. Red die, first digit, the white, and the second digit. If a player rolls too high of a # or 99 they cannot attack, and if they roll 00 or a very low # they have more power to attack. They must go to the castle find the Demon King and destroy him.

From earlier, the gang attacked the demon. Tristan shot a part of the demon's arm muscle. Now, that part of the muscle is now moving and transforming into two demons, one is an eye thing and another was a dragon, the gang now must destroy the two. The demon explains that inside of him has demons, and will leave his monsters to annihilate them. Joey stops and asks why he was leaving. The demon didn't want to destroy them now, b/c he has somewhere to go, and if they were to fight him, find him in the castle and flies away. Joey said no matter, he will defeat Bakura and his monster.

Yami interrupts and said it wasn't Bakura, but an evil spirit was taking over him. YB said to hurry up and roll the dice. Hehe, I like this part, the whole `you and me, no mercy!' eve on eye thing, and Yami just gives him straight out smirk and rolls the dice. The way Yami rolls it differently, he places the dice in between his fingers (like how Duke rolls the dice), and the dice spins onto the field, 00. Joey attacks, destroys the monsters. Miho and Tea said Yugi did a great job. Joey said he needs some recognition too.

YB snarled at him, and said it was impossible. Yami said, "How does it feel, Bakura? Well, aren't you going put the result in the computer?" It was Yugi's turn to attack; he used his magic to freeze the monster. YB was stunned how he rolls his dice, and hasn't fallen yet. First the red die was 8 (meaning Yugi cannot change the monster onto the good side), and the white one was still spinning, until the white die spun the red die into spin again, it stopped 02, Yugi turned the dragon into a good monster.

Bakura asks how he can roll a perfect # of the die. He said it was special die, and was made differently for more #, so it can spin, when the red die was down, he used his elbow and knocked the table so the white die can make the other die can spin again. YB said no more of the special rolling. Yami agreed and continued the game.

Now they enter the forest. Miho said she can't walk anymore, Tristan told her to climb on his back. Tea protested, she was tired of walking too, but no one was carrying her. They reach to the castle, Joey said to be careful, and b/c doesn't know what is inside those walls. YB opens the castle door, they walk in, and the walls open up.

The Demon King wasn't on his throne, and they must find him. Joey yelled out to the Demon to come and fight him.

Yugi walked into this chamber, inside was a stone with a half of a two-digit number; Yami said to them not to go in, it was trap that YB built, and he said that they already went in and cannot take another step. The ceiling of the chamber had spikes and it was falling on them. YB said it was unfortunate. Luckily, the gang held the ceiling from falling on them. Yami rolls, 04. YB tells Yami his challenge was to roll or guess the right number that belongs in the middle square.

Joey said put more strength into keeping the ceiling up. Miho said she can't put more of her strength b/c she's only a gipsy. Joey asked why she chose to be a gipsy; she replied that they get lots of money. Joey said all she can think about was money.

YB typed it into the computer; he said there was 30% of a chance of the Demon King to come out. YB rolled the dice, 28. He demon comes out. The demon said thee was no chance of them escaping. Yami rolled, 13, wrong #. YB rolled, 41, its not to good for them, the demon breathes fire to the gang. Yami said he won't lose, he used his puzzle for some `brain power', he figures the #s out its 00, 99,88 or 66. Yami rolls 66, wrong #. YB says it must be 99 in order to put wedge the stone in between. Miho glows off a pink bright light, the stone appears between the two stones, the gang doesn't have to hold the ceiling anymore. Miho's special ability has some kind of scapegoat ability, Joey said good job to her. YB rolls, he attacks, the demon has missed the gang. Yami rolls, 15, Joey attacks the demon's chest, rolls again 09, Tristan attacks his left arm, rolls a 13, Tea attacks. YB wonders why Yami is so good at rolling the dice, Yami rolls 08, Yugi attacks w/ his monsters. As the gang cheers for defeating the Demon King, he reappears. YB chuckles and said, "Fools!! Wrong time to strike!"

Yugi: get away, darned dragon, defense.

Seto Kaiba: then I will defend with dark (the rest of the name is in Jap so ill call it dark eye)

Darned dragon 2000/1500
Dark eye 1500/2100

Yugi: but defense is better than me. Casual attack will lead to self destroy. Then. earth dragon veins.

Seto Kaiba: what? Earth dragon veins?

Yugi: yes this card will supply monsters air energy. Then attack power will increase for 300 points. Heck fire, attack dark eye.

Jounouchi: won

Seto Kaiba: defending monsters are beaten down no influence on me

Note: Form here on IM going to no do the script.

Kaiba plays minatour and Yugi plays gaia the dark knight (note: this is a cool Shot of the two monsters having a little fight that takes 5-11 secs to finish) Kaiba plays blue eyes white dragon and kills gaia. Yugi uses his famous combo of dark pharmacist (dark/black magician) and magical hats and cursed hexagram to kill blue eyes white dragon Yugi gets hit by dragon # 2 than play Celtic guardian.

    2. The Gauntlet is Thrown

    Celebrating Yugi's victory over Kaiba, Yugi, Taya, Joey, Tristan, and Yugi's grandfather are at The Game Shop, discussing it, and talking about the game. Yugi has recently beaten Joey again, whose weakness is trusting in power over skill. After going home, Yugi and his friends watch the final round of this week's Duel Monsters tournament on TV. The duel is between Weevil, a small nerdy kid who uses bug cards, and Rex, who uses dinosaur cards. Eventually, Weevil ends up winning, and gets an award from Maximillian Pegasus, the creator of Duel Monsters. Later, Yugi gets a box with a video and a glove inside. On the video is Maximillian Pegasus, who can somehow talk to Yugi. He explains that because he beat Kaiba, the only champion who made it through the official tournament without losing a match, he wants Yugi to compete in the next tournament. The glove is an official Dueling Glove, for competeing in an official tournament. Pegasus then shows Yugi the Millenium Eye, which he wears, and says that he will give to Yugi if he wins the tournament. This is how he is communicating over a video. Its power is tempting, so Yugi agrees, and again becomes Yu-Gi-Oh. To prove his worth, Yu-Gi-Oh challenges Pegasus to a match. It goes down to the wire, but in the end, Pegasus wins. Because Yu-Gi-Oh lost, Pegasus uses the powerful Millenium Eye to capture Yugi's grandfather's soul. Pegasus will give Yugi both his grandfather's soul and the Millenium Eye to Yugi if he comes and wins the tournament.

    3. Journey to the Duelist Kingdom

    Joey gets a tape from his sister, Serenity, who he knew only for a short time as a kid. She has an eye disorder, but their dad can't pay for surgery to fix it. Joey vows to help her by winning the Duel Monsters tournament. When he talks to Yugi about Dueling, he hides the fact about why. Yugi decides not to help. But then, when he tries to sneak onto the ship bound for the Duelist Kingdom (the island where the tournament is held), Yugi gives him one of his two starting Dueling Stars, which show how many wins each Duelist has had. Each one starts with two, but they can give one out if they want to. If you lose all of your stars, you are eliminated. The first two to get ten stars compete in the final round. Tristan and Taya sneak on board, by hiding in a box of cargo. While on board, they think they see a kid from their school, but aren't sure. Meanwhile, Rex (the loser to Weevil from last week's tournament) is challenged by Mai, a Duelist who seems to have the ability to predict what card she will draw from her deck. The winner keeps Rex's fancy room, which he got for making it to the final round last week. Mai wins, and Rex gets booted out. Meanwhile, Joey and Yugi are trading with other Duelists to strengthan their decks. Weevil shows up, and throws Yugi's Exodia cards oberboard. Joey, who thinks that if Yugi wins, he will help pay for his sister's surgery, dives overboard and begins retrieving the cards. Yugi dives in after him. When Tristan and Taya pull them up, Joey only got two of the Exodia cards. He then explains about his sister, and Yugi says he's sorry. He remembered how he and Joey became friends. At first, Joey picked on Yugi, along with Tristan, but then Yugi helped Joey settle some other issues, and they became friends. Almost to the Duelist Kingdom, the two begin to discuss strategy.

    4. Into the Hornet's Nest (1)

    As the boat arrives at the Duellist Kingdom, all the duellists seem amazed by the huge size of the island. But as the duellists are amazed by the glory of the island, Tristan is concerned that he and Taya may be stopped as they get off the boat and be found out as stowaways. Fortunately, as the four friends get off of the boat, none of them are stopped to check their star chips.

    As the four head off for Pegasus's castle, where all the duellists are supposed to meet, Yugi notices that Joey has caught a cold from trying to rescue the pieces of Exodia. Joey vows that he is going to get Weevil back for what he did, but, as he is talking, Taya spots Bakura hiding in the woods. Having seen him twice now, Taya is sure that she isn't seeing things, but no one in the group can understand why he always seems to be hiding from everybody.

    As the duellists gather at Pegasus's castle, the general topic of conversation is Kaiba and the fact that he has dropped out of the tournament after being defeated by Yugi in a duel. However Yugi is more concerned about duelling Pegasus for the chance to rescue his Grandpa. At this point, Pegasus steps out onto the balcony of his castle to greet the competitors. He explains that the tournament will test their skills in new ways but that eventually one duellist will be crowned the King of Games.

    Pegasus explains that each duellist has been given a duelling glove and two star chips, and that the aim of the tournament is to wager star chips on duels in order to win ten star chips. Once a duellist has ten star chips, they will be eligible to enter Pegasus's castle and duel him for the title of King of Games. However Pegasus warns the duellists that the arenas on the island have intriguing new rules that will have to be learnt and mastered in order to win. As the duellists begin to prepare their decks before the duelling starts in one hour's time, Pegasus is pleased to see that Yugi has taken the bait and come to the island.

    Concerned that he isn't a good enough duellist to earn ten star chips, Joey decides to give Yugi back the star chip that he gave him, but Yugi insists that he keep it as he needs the prize money for his sister's operation. As fireworks light up the sky, signalling the start of the tournament, Yugi decides that he might as well begin by duelling Weevil. However as the group finds Weevil in the forest, he runs away from them, deep into the forest.

    As Yugi follows his opponent, he wonders why Weevil seems so eager to run away when he knows that Weevil wants to duel him. However as the group catches up with Weevil, he taunts Yugi, explaining that he has fallen into the trap that Weevil had laid for him. But as Yugi vows to make Weevil pay for what he did on the boat, the ground beneath them begins to shake as the duelling arena rises from under ground.

    As the two players prepare themselves for the duel, Weevil is confident about the match as he knows that he only has to risk one of his two star chips against Yugi's only chip. However when Yugi proposes an all-or-nothing duel, with Yugi's deck as a prize as a substitute for a second star chip, Weevil is perfectly happy to accept. As the two duellists prepare to duel, other duellists arrive to watch, amazed that they are getting to see Weevil and Yugi duel before the finals.

    For his first move, Weevil plays the Killer Needle, but Yugi counters with the Mammoth Graveyard. But as Yugi's Mammoth attacks, what should have been a stalemate causes his monster to be destroyed. As Yugi wonders what could have happened, Weevil relishes in explaining that each arena is split into field types that match its surroundings and that in this case, the arena is part wasteland and part forest.

    The different arena types give certain monster types a Field Power Bonus, causing their ATK and DEF to increase, and seeing as how Weevil's bug gets an FPB from the forest, it was stronger than Yugi's Mammoth. However as Weevil continues to gloat, Yugi comments that his Mammoth also receives an FPB from the wasteland, meaning that the attack was still a stalemate and that Weevil's Killer Needle will also be destroyed.

    Amazed to learn that Yugi has managed to use the field power bonus to his advantage as well, Weevil warns Yugi that there are other surprise rules that he doesn't know about yet. As Weevil plays the Hercules Beetle, Yugi counters with the Feral Imp, powered up with the Horn of the Unicorn. But as his Imp attacks, the attack is deflected by the Beetle, which then destroys Yugi's monster, reducing his life points to 1350.

    Weevil explains that any monster with an FPB has a resistance against magically enhanced attacks. As Yugi plays a monster face down, Weevil brings out his Basic Insect, powering it up with a Level 3 Laser Cannon and a Level 2 Power Boost. Weevil destroys Yugi's monster, but Yugi simply plays another, once again in defence mode.

    Confident that he has Yugi on the run, Weevil decides to play a trap card, which will activate as soon as Yugi next attacks. But as he begins to gloat, believing that the match is certain to be his, Yugi decides to set up a trap of his own. As Weevil continues to play more bugs onto the field, Yugi is able to set up the cards needed for his trap without Weevil even noticing. As Weevil announces that he is playing his last insect onto the field, Yugi realises that the time has come to spring his trap.

    Playing the Dark Magician in defence mode, Yugi successfully lures Weevil into attacking his favourite monster. But as Weevil's Basic Insect attacks, Yugi reveals his Mirror Force trap card, reflecting the attack back at Weevil and destroying all of his monsters, reducing his life points to 555. However as Yugi is confident that Weevil has no more monsters to play, Weevil reveals that he was in fact lying on that point. As he reveals that he still has one monster available to play, he warns Yugi that there is no way he will be able to stand against it.

  • 5. The Ultimate Great Moth (2)

    As the duel between Yugi and Weevil continues, Mai has arrived to watch the rest of the match, hoping to see Weevil pull off a comeback in spectacular style. However as she argues with Taya over who is going to win, Yugi seems unimpressed by Weevil's bragging.

    As Weevil plays a monster face down in defence mode, Yugi remembers that he still has a trap card in play and sees that Weevil is trying to lure Yugi into activating it. However Yugi is not so foolish and, playing Monster Recovery, returns all the monsters on his side of the field before playing Kuriboh in attack mode. Attacking Weevil's monster, Yugi activates the trap, destroying his Kuriboh and reducing his life points to 1050, but saving his other monsters from being destroyed in the process.

    However as Weevil reveals his monster to be the Larvae Moth, he seals it inside a Cocoon of Evolution. Trapped inside the cocoon, the Moth will begin to evolve over the next five turns until it becomes the Ultimate Great Moth. Weevil challenges Yugi to try and destroy the cocoon, but with the added strength of the field power bonus the cocoon seems indestructible.

    Playing Gaia, the Fierce Knight, onto the field Yugi attacks the cocoon, but the attack is deflected, reducing his life points to 750. His friends begin to cheer him on from the sidelines, but Mai tells them not to waste their breath, as Weevil is famous for using the Cocoon of Evolution and nobody has ever managed to destroy it. With four turns to go until the Moth is fully evolved, Yugi plays the Beaver Warrior in defence mode.

    As Joey cheers on from the sidelines, he tells Yugi to get fired up and, although only a figure of speech, the suggestion gives Yugi an idea. Playing the Curse of Dragon, he equips it with the Burning Land magic card before attacking the forest arena around the cocoon. With the forest burnt down, the cocoon loses its field power bonus, making it weak enough to destroy.

    Attacking the cocoon with Gaia, Yugi cracks it open, preventing the Moth from evolving fully. However the Moth has still reached the fourth stage of the evolution, making it stronger than it had been before entering the cocoon. And as it takes flight, Yugi realises that the only monster that he can use to attack it is his Curse of Dragon. As the moth destroys Yugi's Beaver Warrior, Yugi uses the Polymerisation card to fuse together Gaia and the Curse of Dragon to produce Gaia, the Dragon Champion.

    However as his Dragon Champion prepares to attack, Yugi realises that its DEF is getting lower because of the poison spores released by Weevil's moth when it attacked. Playing Makiou, the Magical Mist, Yugi washes the spores away, but the damage has already been done. As Weevil's attack destroys the Dragon Champion, Yugi's life points fall to 50.

    Back on the sidelines, Mai and Taya are still arguing, but as Mai insists that there is no way for Yugi to win, Taya asks her why Yugi is grinning. Yugi answers their question by warning Weevil that cheaters never win and, playing the Summoned Skull, he proves his point. Although Yugi's Skull is weaker than Weevil's Moth, the field is still wet from the magical mist. The Summoned Skull has an electrical attack, meaning that it will be more powerful as the water will conduct it. As Weevil and Mai watch on amazed, Yugi destroys Weevil's moth, reducing his life points to 0.

    As an impressed Mai looks on, Yugi tells Weevil that he is nothing more than a cheat and that he doesn't deserve his title of Regional Champion. As Yugi takes Weevil's star chips, Joey claims the duelling glove for his own. But with both duellists still in need of many more star chips, the road to Pegasus's castle looks set to be a long one.

  • 6. First Duel

    When Joey accepts a duel with Mai, the girl from the boat, his cacky attitude vanishes after just the first move; because Mai makes it without even looking at what card it was she played! Forgeting eveything he's learned about the game, Joey plays without thinking, because he mind is stuck on figuring out how Mai plays without looking.
    After taking some advice from Yugi, Joey closes his eyes and concentrates. While concentrating, he realizes how Mai can tell what card is what without flipping them over because she has sprayed them all with different perfume fragrances.
    Mai is angry that Joey has figured out her trick, but with her monsters multiplying on the field, she sees no way to loose. But Joey trusts in the heart of the cards, and draws the Time Wizard; a card Yugi gave him on the boat.
    Using it's time magic, it evolves Joey's Baby Dragon on the field into a powerful Thousand Dragon, and making Mai's monsters age.
    Joey attacks with his evolved dragon and wipes Mai's life points out in one blow. Before he leaves, he tells Mai that there's more to dueling than just beating the opponent; you need to learn to care about someone.

    7. Attack From the Deep

    Joey is gloating over his victory, when his stomach begins to groan. He and Tristan are so hungry that they sniff out some fish cooking on a camp fire. They devour them, and a guy who has been swimming near by jumps onto the scene and accuses them of stealing his meal. He introduces himself as Mako, the sea duelist. He lures them into a false sense of security by telling them of how when he was little, his father disappeared on a ship during a storm at sea. He noticed that the lifebaot was gone too, so he thinks his father is still alive. He challenges Yugi to a duel.
    Yugi accepts, and Mako shows him the arena which is 1/2 land and 1/2 water. Yugi and Mako wager 2 starchips and it begins. Mako summons a giant yellow squid, Fiend Kraken, but it's underwater and Yugi can't see it. Yugi plays Horn Imp in attack mode, but Fiend Kraken destorys it. Then Yugi uses Feral Imp with Horm Of Unicorn, believing that the electricity will beat it. Mako uses his Jellyfish card to absorb the electricity, and Feral Imp is destroyed by Fiend Kraken too. Nent, Yugi unwisely plays Silver Fang powring it up with Full Moon. Tihs is a mistake. The moon contorls the tides, so the high tide is used to his advantage when Mako summons Kairu-Shin. Silver Fang is gone along with all the land except a teensy bit. Yugi plays Giant Rock Soldier in defense mode, but it hardly fits on the little piece. Mako summons Great White to lead the other monsters, who will kill Yugi's monster next turn. Yugi has a brilliant plan. He uses his Rock Soldier and destroys the moon. This makes the tide recede and the entire field is land. Yugi sends out Curse Of Dragon, who destroys all of Mako's sea creatures. Mako gives up his starchips to Yugi, and Yugi wishes Mako good luck on finding his father.

    b: 10-Nov-2001

    8. Everything's Relative (1)

    Its now been six hours since the tournament started. Yugi has 5 star chips, and Joey has 2. At Pegasus's castle, a small, masked kid is escaping a cell. When a guard realizes, he tells Pegasus about him. Pegasus says to watch Yugi, who he believes the masked kid will want to duel. Meanwhile, while walking, Yugi and company encounter a guard keeping a kid hostage. Tristan, with his odd attitude, attempts to wrestle the guard down, but the guard explains that the kid, who has no star chips left, and must leave the island. After following him to the boat, where Weevil and other eliminated members are, he explains to Yugi that his star chips were stolen by a masked kid. Yugi returns to the scene of the crime, and finds the masked kid. He is the same kid who escaped the castle where he was held prisoner. He challenges Yugi. After using the Millenium Puzzle to become Yu-Gi-Oh again, he sends out a Winged Dragon, while the kid sends out a Man Eating Plant. After Yugi defeats it, the kid identifies himself as Kaiba's brother, Mokuba. He want to defeat Yugi, because Kaiba left town after Yugi's victory against him, and he wants revenge. But when he starts losing, he stals Yu-Gi-Oh's star chips instead, and runs away. Meanwhile, on the mainland, Kaiba is sitting in his office, when two of Pegasus's guards come in, and try to kill him. But Kaiba escapes by jumping out of his window. After chasing down Mokuba, and convincing him to work together to defeat Pagasus, who is the real enemy, they return to the boat with the kids stolen star chips, but it has already left. Then, the guard nearby steals the star chips of both Yugi and Mokuba, and throws them into the water. Now with drastically less chips each, Mokuba is once again captured. Yugi requests another duel with him later, and the guard agrees to bring him later. When they arrive at the holographic chamber, Mokuba is there with the guard. But so is... Kaiba! He challenges Yugi to a duel, and says "This time, you don't stand a ghost of a chance". TO BE CONTINUED...

    9. Duel With a Ghoul (2)

    Kaiba? Impossible! How could he have gotten there? The guard holding Mokuba captive claimed that two witnesses saw Kaiba jump to his death. This had to be Kaiba's ghost! But it wasn't. Kaiba was at that very moment lurking around his neighborhood. He had managed to grab onto a small plateu while falling from his office window. He found his secret office door, and went inside. After using his own computer to attempt to crack the Duelist Kingdom's security, he found that Yugi's files were encrypted. But, he wouldn't give up. He knew that if Yugi won, his company would be safe from Pegasus. But, after taking a look through Yugi's deck through his computer, the computer informs him that he somehow lost Exodia (stupid Weevil), which Kaiba thought of as Yugi's best hope of winning. Back at the duel, the battle starts out the same as Yugi's first battle with Kaiba. Yugi's Dark Magician attacks and does some damage to "Kaiba". But then, "Kaiba" sends out a Blueeyes White Dragon. Because Kaiba had the only three remaining Blueeyes White Dragons with him, this had to be Kaiba's deck. Mokuba however, insists that this isn't Kaiba. But the real Kaiba, back in his secret lab, hacked into the satalite that transfers data between the Duelist Kingdom and other locations. He altered its course to crash into the mainframe of Pagasus's Duelist Kingdom Computer. The system swtiched to the backup system automatically, but it lost the extra security over Yugi's files. Kaiba found where Yugi was dueling, but his computer couldn't get in. However, he inputted a virus, and overloaded the door. The next blocade was a password, but Kaiba, who had a feeling that Pegasus's arrogance would be involved, guessed the password correctly: PEGASUS. Meanwhile, Yugi managed to cover his Dark Magician in one of four hats. Confusing "Kaiba", Yugi explains that if he guesses the wrong hat, his something bad will happen to him. There is a 25% chance that "Kaiba" will guess it right. Will he? For that matter, who is this person impersonating Kaiba's ghost? TO BE CONTINUED...

    b: 24-Nov-2001

    10. Give Up the Ghost (3)

    Kaiba guesses the wrong hat twice, and Yugi's Dark Magician defeats the Blueeyes White Dragon. But, "Kaiba" sends out another Blueeyse White Dragon. All looks bad, until Kaiba, who is still sneaking around, realizes that Yugi is dueling an imposter of him. Kaiba uploads a virus into "Kaiba's" Blueeyes White Dragon, which makes its attack power lower, but Pegasus realizes that Kaiab is hacking into the system, and (while getting mad after realizing Kaiba isn't dead), stops the virus through his computer. Kaiba gets really mad, and his anger destroys the Blueeyes White Dragon somehow. "Kaiba" reveals himself as Kaiba's evil side, who was rejected by Kaiba after Yugi defeated him. He stalls Yugi for a while, and Yugi manages to get three monsters out, including a Mystic Elf, who he strengthans with a magic card for extra attack and defense points. But the evil side draws the final Blueeyes White Dragon, which will kill Yugi no matter how many monsters he has out. But Yugi plays a trap card which reflects the dragon's atatck. But the evil side dissolves the attack with a magic card. Yugi plays anothe rmagic card, which allows him to control a Blueeyes White Dragon. His Dragon is tougher then the evil side's, because his elf transfered its power to the dragon. The evil side is defeated, and vanishes. All seems good, but Kaiba is still on the run, and the guard has taken Mokuba away once again. And Pegasus begins to laugh in his office. He has something else up his sleeve...

    11. The Dueling Monkey (1)

    Yugi and his friends have given up their search for Mokuba, and they go to find more people to duel. However, Mai is doing very well for herself. She has won 8 star chips, and when Rex Raptor returns to duel her, he has only 5 star chips. And, because of what Mai did on the boat (see Journey to the Duelist Kingdom), he wants a rematch. But, Mai is very mad, because she lost to Joey (see First Duel), and he is a rookie to Duel Monsters. She decides to agree to the duel, but only if Rex beats Joey first. Rex agrees at the thought of easy star chips. When Joey finds Rex and Mai, he decides to accept their challenge. But Mai says he can't have nay help from Yugi. He will have to beat Rex alone. The holographic projector is raised, and the match starts with Joey's Baby Dragon vs. Rex's Two Headed King-Rex. Rex calls Joey a "dueling monkey", because he has no idea what he is doing. This makes Joey really mad, and makes him want to win even more. The King-Rex beats the Baby Dragon easily. Yugi also leaves the area to check something out he sees nearby. Joey sends out a lion creature, and then he sends out an Axe Raider, which has a power bonus, and destroys the King-Rex. But Rex's next creature is very powerful, and he kills the Axe Raider. Meanwhile, Yugi and Tristan are talking about Joey. Tristan wants Yugi to help Joey, but Yugi says that they have to believe in him. Yugi reminds Tristan about Joey's sister, and how he needs to be able to win on his own. Back at the duel, Joey sends out his Time Wizard, and this brings memories back to Mai. The Time Wizard was what beat Mai, but she thinks that he can't use it without Yugi's guidance. After Rex defeats an ogre creature, Joey then sends out a Flame Swordsman, with the Time Wizard still in play. Mai sees Joey's strategy, and tries to warn Rex, but he ignores her. Fire is strong against dinosaur cards, and his Flame Swrodsman and his new Swamp Battleguard fight through Rex's deck like a hot knife through butter. But, Rex sends out a Sperpent-Knight Dragon, a promotional card, given to people who make it to the final round of regional tournaments. It wipes out Joey's monsters. Joey then draws a card Tristan gave him, and Joey enters a flashback to when Joey and Tristan were in a gang, and fighting rivals. Joey realizes Tristan is a true friend, and he looks down at his friedns, who have come back, and he sends out the card. Because Trsitan's card is related to one of Joey's cards, they look out for each other, like best friends, and deflects Rex's attacks. But, Rex sends out a shadowed creature, and tells Joey to prepare to be wiped out. TO BE CONTINUED...

    12. Trial by Red Eyes (2)

    Rex sent out a card, and Joey beat it right away with his green and red team. Rex, in anger, sent out the Redeyes Black Dragon, a card only a bit less powerful then the powerful Blueeyes White Dragon. He kills Joey's red and green monsters. Yugi says he knows what to do, but he can't tell Joey, because he can't give him advice, due to the rules of this duel. Joey begins to falter, but after support from his friends, he puts down a card. Mai tries to force Rex to do better, but Rex gets mad, and propses a bet: if Joey wins, he gets Rex's Redeyes Black Dragon, and if Rex wins, he gets Joey's Time Wizard. Mai gets mad, because Rex is breaking their deal, but Joey agrees. He sends out his Time Wizard, and attacks. The Time Wizard attacks by spinning a want roulette, and if it lands on a time marking, it drives back time. The roulette spins, and it lands on a time marking barely. The duel is driven back, his Redeyes Black Dragon is fossilized from the millions of years the Time Wizard. When Rex tries to attack, his Dragon falls apart. Joey won by himself! Rex loses his star chips and his Redeyes Black Dragon to Joey. After Tristan and Joey get into a fight (read the quotes) to show (in a bizarre way) how they are good friends, it has become night on the Duelist Kingdom. One day of dueling has passed. Yugi and company are walking through some of the woods on the island. They camp out, and start telling ghost stories (more like food stories). Joey tries to eat some poisonous mushrooms, but he is destracted by Mai, who comes up, and says that she would give them food if they did chores for her. While Yugi, Joey, and Tristan are getting wood and water, Taya takes a shower in a nearby shower that just happens to be there (strange isn't it). Mai is outside, and tells her to turn her back on her friends. But Taya refuses. Mai then expresses her opinion about males, that they are only good for chores. The five of them eat dinner, and Mai thinks that she iwll be able to get her final star chips during the next day, and be allowed into the Duelist Castle, where Pegasus is. Mai leaves to do something. When they hear rustling in the bushes, they investigate, and find Baccura, the kid Taya has been seeing around on the boat, and they talk about their favorite cards. Baccura reveals his favorite card as the Change of Heart card. They all put their favorite cards into Yugi's deck, as if they were all dueling together. Baccura challenges Yugi to a duel that has nothing to do with star chips. But, Baccura reaveals himself as the third Millenium Duelist, along with Yugi and Pegasus. Yugi has the puzzle, Pegasus has the eye, and Baccura has the ring. Baccura takes them all into the shadow world, where Pegasus frist took Yugi over that video tape before they went to the Duelist Kingdom. Yugi and his friends' souls are extracted, ust like Yugi's grandfathers was. Baccura tries to steal teh Millenium Puzzle from Yugi's body, but it alerts his soul to return. He transforms into Yu-Gi-Oh, and prepares to duel Baccura. TO BE CONTINUED...

    13. Evil Spirit of the Ring

    Yami Yugi and Bakura begin their duel, but Yugi realizes that this isn't Bakura at all! Its an evil spirit of some kind, that has the power of the Shadow Realm. Yami Yugi plays Tristan's favorite card, the Cyber Commander. When the card pops out, its a 6 inch tall Tristan. His soul has been trapped in the card. He is very confused and is almost immediately killed by the evil spirit's Magical Hat. Tristan goes to the card graveyard, and sees his name on a grave. Meanwhile, although Yami wants to avoid it, he knows he has to play the Flame Swordsman, Joey's favorite card. A 6 inch tall Joey pops out (read the quote, this is a hilarious scene).
    Yami begins to tell Joey what's going on, and Joey attacks the Magical Hat, and defeats it. But, then he defeats a card that makes all of the cards in Yami's hand cards useless. He discards them, and draws more, including the Dark Magician, Yugi's favorite card. Yami first plays a card that allows Tristan (Cyber Commander) to return to the game. Then he plays the Dark Magician. A 6 inch Yugi pops up. They wonder that if Yugi is down there, who is dueling. This is Yugi's first real concious awareness that Yami does exist, and is actually another conciousness. But the evil Bakura sends out another card that makes the rest of Yami's hand useless. He draws again, and gets Taya's favorite card. He plays it, and a 6 inch Taya pops up. The evil spirit sends out the Man-Eater Bug. Joey defeats it, but at the same time, he is deated, and lands in the graveyard. He finds the Duel Monsters equivalent of the Grim Reaper and he starts to run away. Back at the duel, the three that are left continue to fight, and Yami manages to restore Joey, just in time. But the evil spirit sends out the Change of Heart cards, which has the real Bakura's soul trapped inside. The Change of Heart card is supposed to make then opponent's cards turn against each other, but Bakura wants to help them, and inhabits the evil spirit's cards. Yugi manages to defeat the evil spirit, and all is returned to normal. But, just as soon as they come back out of the shadow realm, the hear Mai scream, and the FIVE of them (looks like Bakura joined the group) run to see what has happened.

    b: 26-Jan-2002

    14. The Light at the End of the Tunnel [a.k.a. Panik Attack] (1)

    Having heard somebody scream, Yugi, Joey, Tristan, Taya and Bakura run to see what has happened. Reaching a nearby duelling arena, they arrive just in time to see Mai's Harpy Lady Sisters be defeated in a duel. As Mai looks on in dismay, her opponent introduces himself as Panik, one of the Duellist Kingdom Eliminators.

    As Panik claims all of Mai's star chips, Mai warns the group to get away before Panik gets to them as well, but Yugi stands strong, challenging Panik to a duel to win back Mai's star chips. Mai tries to persuade Yugi not to duel Panik, unsure as to whether he would be able to win, but Panik seems eager to duel Yugi.

    He explains that Pegasus has offered a generous bounty to the eliminator who defeats Yugi, but warns Yugi that he would be willing to defeat him even if there wasn't any reward. As the two prepare to duel, Panik explains that there is more to duelling than strategy and Mai warns Yugi that Panik is a ruthless duellist, however Yugi is still determined to duel.

    As Yugi steps up to the duelling arena, his feet are clasped into place to prevent him from moving and then bursts of flame shoot out, barely missing him. As Mai and the others doubt that Yugi can win, he still seems confident in his chances.

    However as Panik plays his first card, the Castle of Dark Illusions, things don't seem to be going in Yugi's favour. As the Castle appears on the field, it smothers Panik's half of the arena in darkness, preventing Yugi from seeing which cards Panik has played. Panik explains that on this arena the only source of a field power bonus is the night.

    An uneasy Yugi plays the Celtic Guardian in defence mode, but as Panik plays a monster onto the field he attacks Yugi's Guardian, destroying it. Realising that he can't attack monsters he can't see, Yugi looks for a way to destroy the Castle of Dark Illusions, but with the field power bonus it is nearly impenetrable.

    As Yugi plays the Winged Dragon in defence mode, Panik senses that his opponent is beginning to fret as he plays a second monster into the darkness. However as Yugi's turn begins, he uses the Winged Dragon to attack the darkness, temporarily revealing the monsters that Panik has on the field. Even so, Panik attacks the Dragon, destroying it and reducing Yugi's life points to 1606.

    Panik begins to taunt Yugi, telling him that he can't win as long as the Castle of Dark Illusions is still in play, but Yugi is unfazed and begins to laugh at Panik, telling him that he knows exactly how to win. Showing Panik the Sowrds of Revealing Light, he tells him that he will use it to stop his monsters and dispel the darkness. As Mai watches on, shocked at the amateurish mostake Yugi has made in announcing his strateg, Yugi warns Panik that he will defeat him in five turns.

    As Yugi plays the Curse of Dragon in defence mode, he also plays a card face down, warning Panik that this card will make him see the light. Certain that the card is Yugi's Swords of Revealing Light, Panik summons the Reaper of the Cards to destroy Yugi's Magic card. However as the Reaper attacks, it is unable to finish the move as Yugi reveals that the card was not his Revealing Light but actually the Spell Binding Circle.

    With the Reaper of the Cards caught within Yugi's trap he is free to play his Revealing Light whenever he wants. As Mai looks on, amazed at Yugi's strength in such tough conditions, Yugi decides the time has come to play the Swords of Revealing Light. Playing one card face down, Yugi activates the Swords, flooding Panik's side of the field in a bright light which not only reveals his monsters but prevents them from attacking. However while Yugi seems confident that he can keep his promise to defeat Panik within the next four turns, Panik also seems sure that victory will be his.

  • 15. Winning Through Intimidation [a.k.a. Panik Attack] (2)

    With both duellists convinced that they can still win the duel, it seems like victory could go either way depending on the next few turns. With Yugi prepared to activate the Sowrds of Revealing Light, it could all be over for Panik's intimidation tactics, however every duellist must have a back-up plan.

    As Panik plays the King of Yamimakai, he attacks Yugi's Curse of Dragon, hoping to wipe it out. However sa the attack rushes towards Yugi's monster, it is drawn away by the Spell Binding Circle, destroying Panik's own Reaper of the Cards instead, reducing his life points to 494. With Panik's monster destoryed, Yugi decides the time has come to acitvate the Swords of Revealing Light, revealing all of Panik's monsters and sealing them where they are for three whole turns.

    With Panik's side of the field once again visible, Yugi is able to see what Panik's other two monsters are: Barroks and Dark Chimera. However as Yugi's plan begins to come together, Panik throws a spanner in the works as he plays equips the Castle of Dark Illusions with the Chaos Shield, a forcefield that protects his monsters from any attack Yugi might throw at them.

    As Mai worrites that Yugi won't be able to win, Yugi warns Panik that intimidation and cowardice won't help him win. A furious Panik activates the flamethrowers stationed either side of Yugi, but he dodges them with ease, hardly breaking a sweat. As a game of mental warfare begins, Yugi uses Polymerisation to fuse his Curse of Dragon with Gaia the Fierce Knight to form Gaia the Dragon Champion.

    Panik plays the Metal Guardian onto the field, but refrains from attacking with it, and as Yugi's final turn begins his friends wonder whether he will be able to defeat Panik after all. As Yugi plays the Catapult Turtle, he uses it to fire his Dragon Champion into the Castle of Dark Illusions. However as the smoke from the balst clears, Yugi's Champion is gone, reducing his life points to 300 while the Castle has merely lost its flotation ring.

    As Panik mock's Yugi's fruitless claim to defeat him in five turns, Yugi warns him that he will still win before Panik's turn begins. As Yugi finishes his turn, the Swords of Revealing Light begin to fade, releasing Panik's monsters from their paralysis. However as Panik prepares to make his move, Yugi points out that without a floatation ring the Castle is no longer able to stay airborn.

    As the Castle plummets to the ground, Panik's monsters are trapped by the Chaos Shield, preventing them from evading the Castle's impact. The impact destroys Panik's monsters, reducing his life points to zero. A furious Panik uses the flamethrowers in an attempt to destryo Yugi, but the power of the Millennium Puzzle protects both Ygi and his friends from the flames and as the flames clear, Yugi uses the Millennium Puzzle on Panik to seal away the dark side of him.

    With Panik defeated, Yugi tries to give Mai back her star chips, but she refuses to take them even though that was the only reason Yugi duelled Panik in the first place. But as Joey jokingly offers to take the chips instead, Mai gets annoyed with him and orders him to give them to her. Joey willingly does so, explaining that she should stop being so defensive and start trying to like people.

    With her star chips back in the duelling glove, Mai promises Yugi that she will repay him for what he has done and the two agree to look forwards to eventually duelling each other, whenever the time may come to do so.

  • 16. The Scars of Defeat

    Pagasus is in a meeting with his council of unknown people who want Pegasus to overtake Kaiba's company. They ask Pagasus what happened earlier that day with Mokuba, and Pegasus says everything's under control. It is also revealed now that only Pegasus can see these people through the millenium eye, so they must not really be in the room with him. Meanwhile, Kaiba is flying to the duelist kingdom with a helicopter, and he explains to us that he wants to save his brother. He lands right where Yugi, Joey, Tristan, Baccura, and Taya are sleeping. Actually, Yugi and Baccura are talking about Baccura's millenium ring, and they realize that it points to other millenium items. Kaiba tries to evade Yugi, but Joey insults him, and challenges him to a duel. Kaiba agrees, but only if they use his company's new holographic technology. Joey agrees as well. This new system is a small device that you download your cards into, then place on your hand. While playing, it spawns a very realistic duel monster or whatever card, making in very real loooking, especially sence its not surrounded by an arena. But, Joey does terrible against Kaiba, and loses quickly, and due to the realism of the fight, his courage is lost. Yugi and company get mad at Kaiba for staining Joey's confidence just when he staretd believeing in himself, but Kaiba heads toward the castle, ready to try and defeat Pegasus in a match. Kaiba flashes back to when he watched Pegasus duel a person, and he predicted every move he made with the millenium eye. It was the same way when Yugi battled him over the video tape before they came to the Duelist Kingdom. Yugi and company go back to sleep, ready for a fresh new morning for dueling.

    b: 09-Feb-2002

    17. Arena of Lost Souls (1)

    Joey is running along the clouds... chased by a giant Blueeyes White Dragon! All of a sudden, he sees Kaiba. He begs Kaiba to call off the dragon, and Kaiba says that Joey has to obey him like a dog. All of a sudden, Joey is a dog! Then light.... its morning on the Duelist Kingdom. Joey wakes up from his dream. His confidence is obviously still dmaged from his loss to Kaiba during the last night. Taya says that Mai, who was camping with them for the time, had left to continue dueling, but she left a note for Yugi that said "I owe you eight star chips". Little the five of them know that they are being spied on by three weirdos, and big strong dumb one, a red haired one, and a kid who looks like a zombie. They run back to their master, who is revealed to be Bandit Keith, the man who lost to the kid in the match Kaiba mentioned last episode. They inform him about Joey, and how arrogant he is. Bandit Keith takes his cronies to a cave, where Keith informs them about a hidden arena. He tells Bones (the zombie kid) to lure Joey into the cave to duel. He also gives bones lots of new cards to put in his deck. Meanwhile, Joey is out at a waterfall washing his face, when the big strong guy comes up and knocks him out. He wakes up in the cave, attached to a holographic arena. He never agrees to the duel, but Bones tells him that if he runs away, he'll be just a little dog. Remembering his dream, he accepts the challenge. In order to psyche Joey out, Bones calls this arena "The Arena of Lost Souls", and he says if he loses, he'll die and become a zombie. Bandit Keith is hanging out behind Bones, telling him what to do. The cave arena will give zombie cards a field power bonus, but the cards Bandit Keith gave Bones weren't zombie cards at all, just regular ones. Much to Bones' dismay, Joey's Axe Raider kills his first three creatures. Bones thinks that Keith wants him to lost purposely for some reason. Meanwhile, Yugi, Taya, Tristan, and Baccura are looking for Joey. Thewy find the cave, and go inside. Inside are real coffins and skulls, obviously a result of Pegasus's sick sence of humor. Back at the duel, Bones draws a card that allows all of his dead cards to return as zombies. Now he realizes that Bandit Keith was not trying to steer him wrong at all. He plays the card, and all three now zombie field power bonused dead duel monsters gang up on Joey's Axe Raider and Flame Swordsman. TO BE CONTINUED.

    b: 16-Feb-2002

    18. Arena of Lost Souls (2)

    Things were looking bad for Joey. With three zombie cards, and Bones adding all kinds over zombie power ups to them, Koey couldn't kill any of them without getting hurt himself. Meanwhile, Yugi and company were still searching for Joey. Baccura accidently steps on a switch, which triggers an Indiana Jonesish boulder scene to ensue. A HUGE boulder chases them all to a dead end. After it runs down Baccura, Tristan tried punching it, and it just pops, revealing itself to be aballoon boulder with a speaker. It would appear that Pegasus wanted to scare someone, and he got all the screaming on tape. Back at the duel, to make things worse, Bones sends out the Ghost King, which injects ectoplasm into the zombies to power them up even more (for thos who don't know, ectoplasm is a substance which often appears out of no where in so called "haunted houses"). Joey gets his time wizard, but the spinner hits the skull, and all of Joey's monsters are killed. Now, Yugi finally finds Joey, and helps him out. It goes down to the wire, but Joey wins. Bandit Keith, in a rage, steals all of Bone's and his other henchmen's star chips, and heads for Pegasus's castle, as he now has 10 star chips. Joey and Yugi only need a few more themselves, however.

    19. Double Trouble Duel (1)

    Yugi and his friends tried to push off the boulder, but they couldn't. Suddenly, Bakura's ring glow and it point the way. Yugi and his friends follow the direction the ring is pointing then they encounter Para and Dox known as the Paradox brothers.

    They announced that they have to duel together,then Yugi transform to Yami Yugi. Then Yami Yugi picked Joey to be his partner, then they also announced that if one duelist lose all 200 life points, the other person loses also.

    The Paradox brothers started by playing Labyrinth Wall which turns the field into a maze. But the catch is that the opponents' monsters can only move the number of steps corresponding to the level of the monster.

    Then Yami Yugi plays Beaver Warrior and it took six steps.

    Then Dox played Shadow Ghoul polymerize with Labyrinth Wall to make Wall Shadow which can glide on the walls and can strike anytime. Then it kill Beaver Warrior lowering Yugi's hp to 1600.

    Then Joey plays the Axe Raider and one card face down.

    Now it's Yugi's turn and he plays Celtic Guardian in attack mode.

    Then Para tells Wall Shadow to attack Celtic Guardian, but then Joey reveal his faced down card which was Kunai with Chain, now when the Kunai with Chain is active, Yugi and Joey's Monsters get 600 more attack points. Then Celtic Guardian destroy Wall Shadow, leaving Dox with 1800 hps left.

    Then Dox played Labyrinth Tank and Jurai Gimo a monster that lays his spider web on the labyrinth floor and whoever steps on the floor with the Jirai Gimo web symbol, that monsters get destroy by Jirai Gimo.

    20. Double Trouble Duel (2)

    The duel between Yugi and Joey versus Para and Dox continues. Yugi and Joey try to keep the Celtic Guardian, Flame Swordsman, Axe Raider and Dark Magician in a solid group, but Para plays Magical Labyrinth and Joey's monsters are cut off from Yugi's. Axe Raider accidentally triggers Dox's Jirai-Gumo and it destroys it. Yugi counters by playing Mystic Box on the Dark Magician, causing the Jirai-Gumo to be captured and switch places with the Dark Magician. Then Yugi destroys the Labyrinth Tank. Meanwhile, Kaiba is searching for Mokuba and captured Kimo, Pegasus' guard that captured Mokuba earlier, so he could enter the castle. Back at the duel, Para plays Saga of Thunder, the top part of the Trinity Gate Guardian. Joey then advances his Flame Swordsman again. Next, Dox plays Shujin and activates his Dungeon Worm in combination with Ingrovation, allowing it to destroy the powered-up Celtic Guardian, dropping Yugi's life points to 800. Yugi uses his Magical Hats to hide the Dark Magician and Flame Swordsman. Para plays the Monster Tamer to control the Dungeon Worm and have it attack a hat, but the hat was empty. Joey then lets his Flame Swordsman attack the Dungeon Worm along with Salamandra, taking away the bonus the Worm got from the Monster Tamer. Then Dox played Kanejin and the Trinity Gate Guardian was formed! Meanwhile, Kimo activated the alarm and Seto races off the find Mokuba. At the duel, Yuig lays two cards face down and ends his turn. Then the Gate Guardian attacks the Flame Swordsman.

    b: 23-Mar-2002

    21. Double Trouble Duel (3)

    With all three elemental guardians assembled, it seems the Paradox brothers are unbeatable with their Gate Guardian, a Trinity monster in the same class as Exodia. But Yugi and Joey are relentless in their battle to win entrance to Pegasus's castle.

    With Yugi's Dark Magician still protected in the magical hats, the water guardian's attack only succeeds in destroying Joey's monster. But with team work the two manage to destroy the first section of the Trinity. With the water monster gone, the Gate Guardian is weakened.

    Teamwork begins to pay off, as Yugi and Joey combine monsters to form the Black Skull Dragon, a combination of the Summon Skull and Red Eyes Black Dragon. But the flying beast is unable to move in the labyrinth.

    The two brothers play Ryoku, a card which steals the hitpoints from Joey and Yugi, but they counter it by reviving the water monster on their team. As the brothers destroy the monster with their Guardian, the tables are turned as Yugi switches monsters bringing forth the Black Skull Dragon and Joey replays Ryoku using a magic card.

    Together the two defeat the Paradox brothers and solve the puzzle of the doors, successfully gaining acces to the castle.

    Meanwhile, Kaiba finds his brother but Mokuba's soul is trapped inside a card by Pegasus. The only way he will release him is if Kaiba battles Yugi and wins. But can he defeat his old enemy when his deck was unable to in the previous rematch? Begin to find out in the next climatic episode.

    b: 30-Mar-2002

    22. Face Off (1)

    After solving the Paradox Brothers' puzzle, Yugi and Joey are on their way to Pegasus's castle for their final duels, but little do they know that their journey is far from over yet. Mokuba's soul has been trapped by Pegasus in a card, and the only way for Kaiba to free him is to challenge Yugi in a rematch. With the five star chips Kaiba has been given, his duel with Yugi will ether gain him access to a duel with Pegasus or eliminate him.

    Free from the labyrinth, Bakura's millennium ring is pointing towards the castle, being drawn to Pegasus's millennium eye. This doesn't bother Yugi, because they are heading there already. Taya has a flashback of how Yugi seems to be two different people, like the time when he was forced to duel Bakura in the Shadow Realm ("Evil Spirit of the Ring"). She them recalls how Yugi and Joey once helped her to find a warehouse to use as a dance studio (New 'flashback').

    As the gang arrives at the castle, Kaiba is waiting at the doorway. He tells Yugi that he won't let him pass unless the two of them battle again. Yugi wants to refuse, but Kaiba accuses him of being too scared to fight him without having Exodia. Joey agrees to fight, but Taya convinces him not to as he will only lose again.

    Yugi remembers his first battle with Kaiba ("The Heart of the Cards") and how he now seems different, like he has a purpose for duelling. He doesn't know about Mokuba and Kaiba is not willing to tell him. Yugi agrees to the duel because he is unable to refuse the heart of the cards.

    On the rooftop of the castle, the two enemies prepare for a duel using Kaiba's dueling disc system (from "The Scars of Defeat") as Bandit Keith arrives at the castle for his duel with Pegasus. The guard tells him that there is a match about to start and so he heads to the roof to watch the commencing duel.

    As the match starts, Kaiba leads Yugi into destroying his first monster in order to use its fallen life points to power up his next. But Yugi plays the Dark Magician and easily crushes the Sword Stalker. Kaiba then plays a genie monster, Lajin, and uses a magic card to defend it in a lamp. When Yugi attacks, the Dark Magician's attack is deflected, destroying his Curse of Dragon.

    With both duelists on 1500 life points, it seems like the match could be close. But Yugi does not know that Kaiba has one Blue Eyes White Dragon waiting in the wings, or that he is planning to do something no duelist has ever done before, polymerise all three Blue Eyes to form the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon.

    b: 06-Apr-2002

    23. Face Off (2)

    As the battle on the rooftop rages, both Yugi and Kaiba have 1500 life points remaining. But Yugi is beginning to worry because Kaiba seems different. He is not toying with Yugi as he did in their first match, but is getting down to business. As Kaiba makes his next move, he plays the 'Despell' card, destroying Yugi's 'Swords of Revealing Light', the card which shut down his Blue Eyes White Dragons the last time they duelled.

    But Yugi retaliates with a card which reveals Kaiba's hand, showing the Blue Eyes that he is holding. Yugi is concerned because Kaiba would have played this immediately last time they fought. He doesn't realise Kaiba intends to draw all three Blue Eyes and merge them.

    Using the 'Mystic Box' Yugi finally manages to destroy Lajin and the Magical Lamp, taking Kaiba's life points down to 800. But Kaiba plays his Dark Clown, trapped with the virus card Crush. As Yugi destroys the clown, the virus infects his monsters on the field, destroying them. Not only that, but it infects all monsters in his deck with an attack power of 1500 or more. If yugi tries to play one, it will be destroyed immediately.

    Forced to play weak cards in defence mode, Yugi is unable to protect his monsters from Kaiba's onslaught. But as Kaiba draws his second Blue Eyes, Yugi uses a magical combo to destroy one of Kaiba's monsters, taking his life points down to 400. But Kaiba is unphased as he draws his third Blue Eyes. Playing his 'Mystical Elf', he restores his life points to 900 before attacking Yugi with one Blue Eyes, taking Yugi's life points down to 400.

    As Yugi plays his next monster in defense, Kaiba draws the card he needed, 'Polymerisation'. Merging all three Blue Eyes, he forms the strongest monster in the game, the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon. With his stone soldier destroyed, Yugi prepares for his next turn. But will he be able to pull himself back from the brink of defeat?

    It seems like Yugi's hope is lost as Kaiba has managed to combine the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon. But as Yugi draws the card that could be his last, he begins to see a way out of defeat. Playing the Karebo, the weakest monster card in the game, he begins to multiply it with a magic card creating an unstoppable defence.

    As Kaiba attacks, the Karebo have multiplied into a defensive wall of hundreds of monsters, capable of stopping even the Blue Eyes' attacks. While Kaiba has the ultimate attack monster, Yugi has managed to create an ultimate defence to counter it. Not only that, but Yugi is beginning to spin a plan which will destroy Kaiba's Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon once and for all.

    Using a trick from Kaiba's book, Yugi uses a Polymerisation card to create a combination monster. But rather than polymerising with one of his own monsters, Yugi uses the Living Arrow to fuse his Mammoth Graveyard with Kaiba's Blue Eyes. The combination of dead and living monsters causes the Dragon to begin decaying and lose its life points

    Kaiba attacks once more, but the Karebo block the attack and continue to multiply. The Blue Eyes is down to only 900 attack points now and Kaiba is beginning to lose hope for ever rescuing his brother. Yugi calls forth his Celtic Guardian and attacks the Blue Eyes, wasting one of the decaying heads and reducing Kaiba's life points to 400. With the two duellists once again tied, it seems like Yugi could win the duel.

    But Kaiba is not so willing to accept defeat. In an attempt to win, he backs up towards the castle wall positioning himself behind his Blue Eyes. He warns Yugi that the blast from an attack on the Blue Eyes could knock him off of the ledge and kill him. Yugi is in a stalemate, unable to win without risking destroying Kaiba at the same time. Yugi and Kaiba both have loved ones at stake, but Kaiba is the more ruthless, willing to risk anything to win.

    Kaiba tells Yugi that the only thing to do is to surrender, but Yugi is not so sure. In order to make his decision easier, Kaiba uses Reborn the Monster to revive the lost Blue Eyes head. Now with one head at full strength, Kaiba is able to destroy Yugi on his next turn unless he has the willpower to attack Kaiba. A battle of consciences rages between the two Yugis. As the duellist Yugi orders the Celtic Guardian to attack, Taya pleads for Yugi to stop. Just as the Guardian is about to strike, normal Yugi prevails and shouts for it to stop.

    Kaiba begins to gloat as he attacks the Celtic Guardian, wasting both it and Yugi's remaining life points. Yugi breaks down and begins to cry as his only chance to save his grandpa is torn away from him. Taya tries to comfort him but he tells her that he is scared of the other presence inside of him and that he will never duel again. Meanwhile Pegasus is notified of the duel's outcome and authorises Kaiba's entry into the castle. With Yugi's spirit broken, Pegasus no longer has to worry about the only duellist truly capable of beating him.

    NOTE: From this episode onwards, new episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! were first being aired in a dubbed format on the UK channel Nickelodeon, however the dates quoted for the first airing are taken from the KidsWB broadcasts to avoid confusion.
  • In the dubbed version, Kaiba said that the blast would knock him off the edge of the the castle, but in the original Japanese version Kaiba threatened to jump off if Yugi ordered the attack.

  • 25. Shining Friendship

    After losing his duel with Kaiba, Yugi no longer has enough star chips to duel Pegasus in an attempt to save his Grandpa. Not only that, but the battle he had to wage with his other self has left him scared to duel ever again in case he can't control the presence inside him.

    His friends try to offer support, but Yugi is too lost in his own fears to hear them. Joey offers Yugi his chips, but Yugi is too stunned to answer. Just then Mai arrives, ready to duel Pegasus. Seeing Yugi, she teases him, asking why he hasn't yet entered the castle even though he has enough chips. Yugi's friends tell her about his duel with Kaiba and she tries to give him a pep talk, explaining that he shouldn't give up just because he's lost one duel.

    She offers him the star chips that she owes him (from his duel with Panik) but once again he refuses, too scared to ever duel. Mai challenges Yugi to duel her for the chips, but he is too afraid to duel her, or anyone, so Taya accepts instead. A duel begins between the two girls for Yugi's chance to enter the castle again.

    Taya plays the weak Petite Angel, but it is quickly crushed by Mai's Harpy Lady. On her next turn, Taya plays Fairies' Gift in attack mode, and a trap card, Wobaku, face down. Taya attacks Mai, but forgets that Mai had played a magic card on her previous turn, the Rose Whip. With the extra power of the Rose Whip, the Harpy Lady destroys Taya's monster and knocks her life points down to 1100. Mai then plays another magic card face down, the Harpy's Feather Duster.

    Tea draws her next card, Shining Friendship. She hopes that this card will be as strong as the friendship of her group of friends. She plays the card and Mai attacks, but Taya's trap card activates, reducing the Harpy's attack points to 0. Mai has been mocking Taya, claiming that she is too scared to win. Taya admits this, but tells Mai that no matter how afraid she is, she will never give up because she has her friends to help her out. Her emotional speech finally begins to get through to Yugi who begins to realise what is happening around him.

    Taya tells Mai that she has to fight on, for Yugi, and that she will duel even though she is scared. On her next turn, Taya plays the Magician of Faith in defence and then plays the Silver Bow and Arrow on Shining Friendship. But Mai counters with the Cyber Shield before using Despell to remove the Silver Bow. She attacks the Magician of Faith, meaning Taya gets to draw a card from her graveyard, the Silver Bow. Taya replays the Bow, along with the Elf's Light, but Mai is still confident that her monster is stronger and attacks before Taya is finished.

    Playing her own Despell card, Taya dispels the Cyber Shield, meaning that Mai's Harpy Lady is weaker than Taya's Shining Friendship. Taya attacks, reducing Mai's life points to 1600. At this point, Mai surrenders, claiming that Taya has destroyed her only strong monster. But both she and Yugi know that she could have easily won the match if she had played her Harpy's Feather Duster. Yugi tries to ask Mai about it, but she changes the subject, asking why he isn't racing to get back into the castle. Together, the friends with Mai head back towards the castle in order to duel Pegasus. But they'll have to wait for Kaiba to have his match first.

    b: 27-Apr-2002

    26. Champion vs. Creator (1)

    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?

    b: 18-May-2002

    27. Champion vs. Creator (2)

    As Kaiba continues his duel with Pegasus, Yugi tells the others about the power of Pegasus's Millennium Eye and how it allows Pegasus to see the cards Kaiba is holding. The others doubt what Yugi is saying, but Joey seems to think that if the Millennium Eye really has such powers there will be no way for Kaiba to win. Yugi disagrees with this, reminding Joey that Kaiba is the champion of the game and hopefully has a reserve plan to help him win from behind.

    Meanwhile, Kaiba is also beginning to realise the power of the Millennium Eye, but still believes that he can win by playing the cards in his hand. Playing a second monster in defence mode to aid his Rude Kaiser, the champion can do little but wait for Pegasus to make his move.

    As Pegasus begins his turn, rather than playing a card he decides to take a time out to reminisce about his favourite cartoon show, "Funny Bunny". As Pegasus recalls the mishaps of the cartoon bunny, Kaiba calls for him to stop talking and start playing, so Pegasus does just that, playing his next card, the Toonworld.

    With its new haven inside the covers of the cartoon world, Pegasus's Dark Rabbit is protected from all of Kaiba's attacks but can still emerge to attack. Crushing Kaiba's Battle Ox, the rabbit then retreats back inside the book until Pegasus's next turn. Kaiba, unable to attack the Dark Rabbit, plays one card face down and then ends his turn.

    Not content with the fortress-like protection of the Toonworld, Pegasus decides to show off the card's power further by playing the card that he took from Kaiba turns before. But as he plays the Blue Eyes White Dragon, it merges with the habitat of Toonworld and emerges as a Blue Eyes Toon Dragon, a cartoon monster with the power of its normal counterpart. The Dragon attacks the Rude Kaiser, destroying Kaiba's last defensive monster.

    Shocked but not yet beaten, Kaiba begins to realise that Pegasus can see the cards in his hand and so decides to discard his current hand, playing instead the top card from his deck. Trusting in the heart of the cards, his faith is rewarded as he draws a second Blue Eyes White Dragon. But as Kaiba attacks the Toon Dragon, another of the Toonworld's rules becomes apparent as the Toon dodges the attack. Pegasus informs Kaiba that like "Funny Bunny" in the TV show, his Toon Monsters cannot be damaged by any attack.

    From the sidelines, the gang questions the legality of playing with the Toonworld card. Yugi admits that the Toonworld card was never released on the open market because it was too powerful and that Pegasus's version must be the only one. Meanwhile it is Pegasus's turn again, but with Kaiba playing "blind", Pegasus turns his tactics to seeing into Kaiba's mind and his knowledge of his deck.

    Adding yet another layer to the Toonworld, Pegasus plays the Shine Palace, a card that energises all Toon Monsters with its radiant light. The powered-up Toon Dragon attacks, but is blocked by Kaiba's Negate Energy magic card. As what could be his last turn begins, Kaiba must place all of his trust into the cards. Playing the Shadow Spell, he successfully traps the Blue Eyes Toon Dragon before destroying it with the original Blue Eyes, reducing Pegasus's life points to 1200.

    Furious that Kaiba has destroyed one of his precious toons, Pegasus retaliates by playing the Dragon Capture Jar. Absorbing the second Blue Eyes inside, the jar's defence points rise to that of the Blue Eyes. Kaiba is unwilling to relent and plays a monster in defence, but on Pegasus's turn he plays the Dragon Piper. As the Piper begins to draw the Blue Eyes, trapped in the Dragon Capture Jar, under Pegasus's control, Kaiba attacks, hoping to shut down the Piper. But as the Sword Stalker prepares to strike, Pegasus reveals his Doppelganger card and uses it to clone Kaiba's Crush card. Infecting the Dragon Piper with the virus, Kaiba's attack leaves his entire deck infected.

    With every monster except for one infected by the virus, Kaiba has no choice to revive Saagi, the Dark Clown with the Reborn the Monster card. But as Pegasus prepares for his final attack, Kaiba realises that it is hopeless and that he is about to lose. As the Dark Clown is destroyed, Kaiba loses the last monster not infected by the virus and has to forfeit the match.

    As Pegasus gloats and taunts Kaiba for losing the only chance to save his brother, he reminds Kaiba that his soul now belongs to Pegasus. Drawing a blank card, Pegasus uses the Millennium Eye to seal Kaiba's soul within the shadow realm inside the card. Shocked and distraught at Kaiba's defeat, Yugi Yama threatens Pegasus, warning him that soon the duel between the two of them will begin and with it will come Pegasus's final defeat.

    Intrigued by the power of the Millennium Power, Pegasus reminds Yugi Yama that in order to earn the right to fight him, he must first defeat the other finalists in the last rounds of the tournament. But will Yugi be able to win the right to fight Pegasus when he must go up against his friends, Joey and Mai?

    28. The Night Before

    As night falls on the Duelist Island, after learning who will they will be dueling the next day, everyone begins preparing for the coming day in different ways. While Mai tries to strengthen up her deck for her duel against Yugi, Joey drifts into a deep sleep about donuts. Tea, Bakura, and Triston are searching around the dueling platforms, determined to find out how Pegasus defeated Kaiba so easily earlier that day. After finding a hole in the wall that pointed to the spot where Kaiba's cards had been, they head off to the tower, which lined up with the hole. Meanwhile, Yugi has found the three cards with his grandfather, Kaiba, and Mokuba's souls trapped inside. They warn him that he must unlock the secret of his millenium puzzle and defeat Pegasus. Tea, Bakura, and Triston are caught by Pegaus, and sent to the shadow realm. But just before they are trapped forever, Bakura's dark Yami side returns, and erases everyone's minds and sends them back to the real world. Bandit Keith steals Joey's qualifying card and Yugi wakes up, realizing that it had all been a dream. But he knows that his grandfather was trying to tell him something in the dream, but he is unsure as to what the secret of the puzzle is, and he's running out of time.

    29. Duel Identity (1)

    The duelist Kingdom playoffs begin, starting with the duel between Yugi and Mai. As Yugi's friends watch him from balcony, Yugi and Mai begin to duel, but Yugi is not willing to accept the help of the spirit of the puzzle anymore, afraid of what it might do to Mai. With Yugi only half concentrating on the duel, and also trying to keep the spirit under control, Mai imeadiatly takes the lead with the help of her Mirror Wall, a permanent trap that halves the attack points of any creature that attacks. Unable to touch her Harpie Lady, and still rejecting the help of the spirit, Yugi makes mistake after mistake while Mai powers up her Harpie. Yugi's friends begin wonder what is wrong with Yugi and why he is playing so poorly. After playing the Shadow of Eyes card, and forcing Yugi's Dark Magician to attack, Yugi's life points are reduced to 300, and Mai's are still at 2000. The spirit of the puzzle warns Yugi that if he doesn't let him help, everyone will lose!

    b: 24-Aug-2002

    30. Duel Identity (2)

    As the first playoff duel rages, Yugi has been reduced to 300 life points while Mai's life points remain at an untouched 2000. With the Shadow of Eyes card luring Yugi's monsters into attack mode and the Mirror Wall then reducing their attack points, Yugi seems helpless against the power of Mai's Harpy / Dragon team. Not only that, but he is struggling to resist the spirit of his Millennium Puzzle, fearing what it might do. But if he doesn't embrace the spirit, he may risk losing the only chance he has of rescuing his Grandpa.

    Mai's new strategy seems flawless and she owes it to Joey for teaching her the most important lesson of her life. When he defeated her in his first ever tournament duel, he forced her to look at herself in a new way, confronting her fears of her abilities and her trust in herself. Mai tells Joey that her defeat against him taught her more about duelling than any of her victories and forced her to face up to her fears. But now Yugi has the chance to do the same and he is bottling up his fears, scared of what might happen.

    As Yugi considers what Mai has said, the spirit of the Puzzle explains that he never meant to hurt Kaiba, but was just trying to save Yugi's Grandpa. He promises to work together with Yugi, not doing what he alone sees best again. Yugi agrees and the two begin working together once more.

    Playing Brain Control, Yugi takes control of Mai's Pet Dragon, but even under his control it still refuses to attack its master. Instead, Yugi plays one card face own and then plays the Catapult Turtle. Loading the Dragon onto the Turtle's back, Yugi fires it at Mai's Harpy Lady, destroying her Mirror Wall and reducing her life points to 850 in one attack. With Yugi's inner spirit working with him once more, Mai will have to play better than ever in order to win. Fearing Yugi's trap card, she plays the Elegant Egotist, triplicating her Harpy Lady to give a trio of the powerful monsters and then ends her turn.

    As Yugi's turn begins, he tells Mai that she should have attacked him on her turn. She argues that she isn't that foolish, but as Yugi turns over the card Mai realises that he was bluffing. Revealing the Monster Recovery card, Yugi tells Mai that an attack on her turn would have won her the match. Instead, he plays the Monster Recovery card to return all his monsters to his deck and then draw a new hand.

    But even with his new hand, he still has nothing strong enough to defeat the Mai's three Harpies. Instead he plays the one card that he can, the Mystical Elf, in defence mode. As a female monster, it is unaffected by the Shadow of Eyes and so cannot be lured into attacking. Mai is shocked, having forgotten the flaw in the Shadow of Eyes, but is unfazed as she plays Monster Reborn to revive her Harpy's Pet Dragon, now even stronger at 2900 attack points because of the three Harpies. Attacking the Mystical Elf with her three Harpies, Mai destroys Yugi's only possible defence card.

    With only one card left to save the duel, Yugi begins to lose faith in himself. But the strength of Yugi and his spirit, combined with the heart of the cards, prevails as Yugi draws the Swords of Revealing Light, shutting down Mai's monsters for three turns. Yugi's spirit tells him that there is only one way they can win, and that is through the Black Lustre Ritual. But the Ritual is risky and three turns may not be long enough to draw all the necessary cards. Even so, Yugi plays the first component of the ritual, the puny Karebo.

    Mai is amazed by Yugi's guts at playing such a weak monster, but he warns her not to mock the creature as it is the start of her demise. Mai draws one card and then ends her turn, but as Yugi draws his next card he is still missing the final component needed for the Black Lustre Ritual. However he is able to play the second part and using his own Monster Reborn card revives Gaia, the Fierce Knight. But with only two turns to go, can he draw the final card to activate the Ritual.

    As Mai's turn begins, Pegasus realises Yugi's strategy and is astounded by his foolishness. As Mai draws a second Harpy Lady card, she gloats to herself that Yugi will be crushed on her next turn when she attacks with four Harpies and the harpy's pet Dragon at a powered-up 3200 attack points. As she ends her turn, the Swords fade away, releasing their control over Mai's monsters.

    As he prepares to draw the deciding card of the duel, Yugi begins to doubt whether it is fair to risk the lives of so many of Yugi's friends on the draw of one card. But with the support of all his friends, the power of the two Yugis is stronger than ever, shocking Pegasus who has never felt such power. As he draws the final card, Yugi reveals the Black Lustre Ritual card. Activating the card, the ritual beings.

    As both of his monsters are sacrificed, their powers of light and darkness are combined, opening the Gates of Chaos in order to allow the Black Lustre Soldier to emerge. With a powerful attack, the Soldier destroys the Pet Dragon and reduces Mai's life points to 750. Everyone is shocked, especially Mai whose spirit is broken by the crushing defeat of her Dragon. Unable to revive it again, her strategy has fallen to pieces and she cannot see any way to win. Laying her hand over her deck, she concedes the match to Yugi, unable to face seeing her Harpies destroyed on Yugi's next turn.

    As Mai turns to leave, Yugi thanks her for teaching him to confront his fears and weaknesses. Mai admits that she also has a lot to learn, both about duelling and herself, but warns Yugi that they will meet again and next time she may not be so easy to defeat. Even so, Yugi must still defeat the winner of the next duel in order to earn the right to duel Pegasus and save his Grandpa. But will he be strong enough to defeat his opponent if he is pitted against his closest friend?

    31. Keith's Machinations (1)

    Just as the duel between Joey and Bandit Keith is about to begin, Joey realizes that he doesn't have his qualification card. The refeer gives Joey five minutes to find the card. Joey searches his room for it, but, of course, he can't find the card because Keith stole it. Just as Joey's about to give up, Mai appears and gives Joey her qualification card, as he needs it more than she does. Joey returns to the area, and Bandit Keith wonders how Joey got the card. Keith starts of the duel by placing a monster facedown. Joey does the same. Keith flips face-up his Pendulum Machine (1750/2000) which destroys Joey's facedown Battle Warrior (700/1000). Joey summons Giltia The Magician Knight(1850/1500) and it attacks Keith's Machine, but the attack does nothing. Keith then reveals that his machine monsters are immune to magical attacks. Keith summons Launcher Spider (2200/2500) which destroys Giltia (JLP 1650). Joey plays Axe Raider in defence mode and ends his turn. Keith is about to play a card facedown, but he 'accidentally' drops it onto the field, revealing it to everyone. Keith then picks up the card and puts it facedown. He also plays another card facedown. Yugi feels it's a trap, but Joey summons Flame Swordsman (1800/1500) and powers it up with Salamandra (2500) and it attacks the facedown Zoa (2600/1900), but Keith activates the Magic Metal Force trap card, turning Zoa in Metal Zoa (3000/2300), making it immune to the Flame Swordsman's attack. On Keith's turn, he has Metal Zoa attack and destroy Flame Swordsman (JLP 1150). Joey places a card facedown and ends his turn. Keith plays Stop Defence to switch Axe Raider to attack mode. Metal Zoa attacks Axe Raider, but Joey activates the Spiked Pit trap. Metal Zoa falls into the pit, thus destroying it, and dealing 1/4 its attack power to Keith's Life Points (KLP 1250). Joey then summons Garoozis (1800/1500) in attack mode and it destroys the Pendulum Machine (KLP 1200). Joey also places a card facedown. Keith has Launcher Spider attack Garoozis, but Joey activates Kunai With Chain, ensnaring the Launcher Spider and increasing Garoozis' attack by 500 (2300). Garoozis then destroys Launcher Spider (KLP 1100). Tea says that she's never seen a duel when the Life Points were this close, but Keith vows to defeat Joey.

    32. Keith's Machinations (2)

    With Joey in the lead, Keith gets really angry and sends out the mighty Barrel Dragon who annihilates Joey's Axe Raider and Gerusies. Joey tries his Time Wizard and Baby Dragon combo, and it worked! But Keith used his trap card Time Machine to bring back the Barrel Dragon at full power. Joey plays Red Eyes Black Dragon and uses his Copycat card to get the Magic Metal Force and activate it, creating the Red Eyes Metal Black Dragon! He destroys the Barrel Dragon, but Keith plays his Slot Machine in defence and uses the Seven Completed to power up it's defence to 3000. Then he slips another out from his wrist band and plays it to raise the Slot Machine's attack. But as it attacks Joey plays his Dragon Nails, powering up his Dragon to 3400. But Keith cheats yet again and uses his last Seven Completed to raise the Slot Machine's attack to 3400. Then Keith steals Joey's Shield and Sword using his Pilager card. He activates it, making his Slot Machine's attack 3000 and the Red Eyes Metal Black Dragon's 2400. But as the dragon dies, Joey uses his Grave Robber to get the Time Machine and revive his dragon with an attack of 3400. It destroys Keith's monster and his Life Points. Keith accuses Joey of cheating, but Pegasus claims to have known that Keith stole Joey's entry card and cheated with his Seven Completed cards. Keith is dragged away, but breaks free and threatens Pegasus. Pegasus activates a trap door and Keith is tossed out of the castle into the sea below. Now Joey and Yugi must duel to see who battles Pegasus.

    Yugi and Joey prepare to duel. Joey thanks Yugi for all his help on getting to where he is but Yugi says Joey had the skills to do it all along. Yugi leads with Celtic Guardian but Joey counters with Guiltier the Knight and the Guardian is destroyed. Yugi can't believe didn't do anything but just play a monster that turn so and says a mistake like that should not go unpunished. Then he plays Gaia the Fierce Knight and Guiltier is beaten. Joey then plays Armored Lizard in defence. This suprises everyone. Yugi plays Summoned Skull and destroys the Lizard. Joey smiles and plays the Flame Swordsman with the Shield and Sword card, reducing Summoned Skull's attack to 1200! The Flame Swordsman easily crushed the Skull. Yugi congradulates Joey on a good move then plays Curse of Dragon. Then Yugi uses Polymerisation to create Gaia the Dragon Champion and it destroys the Swordsman. But Joey counters by first playing Red Eyes Black Dragon, the the Grave Robber to get the Summoned Skull, and finally Copy Cat to copy Yugi's Polymerisation card to make the Black Skull Dragon! It destroys the Dragon Champion but Yugi is unfazed as he obviously has a plan to make the supreme dragon fall!

    b: 14-Sep-2002

    34. Best of Friends, Best of Duelists (2)

    Joey seems unstoppable with the Black Skull Dragon, but Yugi isn't about to go down. He plays the Dark Magician with Magical Hats. Joey then attacks an empty hat. Then Joey plays Gerusies in an attempt to lure Yugi into attacking but Yugi doesn't. Then Yugi plays a card hidden in another hat. Joey attacks and once again hits an empty hat. On his third try, Joey hits the hat with the Spell-Binding Circle and His Dragon's attack is lowered to 2500 while he switched Gerusies to defence. Then Yugi played the Book of Secret Arts to power up the Dark Magician to 2800, thus destroying Joey's dragon. But then Joey played Baby Dragon and another card face down. Yugi thought it was the Time Wizard, so he attacked. But it was Kunai with Chain and the Dark Magician was captured by Gerusies. Then, using the heart of the cards, Joey drew and played Time Wizard. The Time Roulette suceeded and a Thousand Dragon and Dark Sage were created. But the Thousand Dragon's attack was blocked by the magic effect of the Dark Sage, allowing Yugi to play any card in his deck during either player's turn! After using Mokiou Mist to shut-down Joey's attack, Yugi used Reborn the Monster to bring back the Black Skull Dragon, thus ending the duel. After, Yugi gave the three million dollars to Joey for his sister. Now it's time for Yugi to duel with Pegasus.

Yugi plays a facedown card then switches to Yugi-oh so the latter has to trust in Yugi's plays...but Pegasus can't read his mind to find out the cards.

    Using the Mind Shuffle, they prevent Pegasus reading what cards they have played, and use the Magic Hat and Living Arrow to protect their Dark Magician long enough to destroy the Toonworld and its inhabitants with the Mirror Force trap. With Yugi now in the lead, Pegasus decides to move the game up a notch, and prepares to shift the arena into the Shadow Realm and take the Millennium Puzzle piece.

    Meanwhile, Bakura opens himself to the spirit of his Millennium Ring, letting him summon real monsters to defeat the guards, then informs Tristan that he wants Mokuba's soulless body as a new host body and will send Tristan to the graveyard along with the guards.

    Pegasus is enraged that Yugi has mastered his Millenium Puzzle and developed the Mind Shuffle. Pegasus takes them both to the Shadow Realm and so begins a true Shadow Game. Pegasus plays Dark Eyes Illusionist, a card with no attack or defence points! Pegasus created the monster just for the tournament, so Yugi doesn't know its effect. Yugi descides to attack with Curse of Dragon. Unfortunately, the Dark Eyes' effect paralyzes all monsters that attack! Then Pegasus plays the Black Illusion Ritual Call that sacrifices the Dark Eyes Illusionist to summon another specially-created creature: the mighty Relinquished! The monster consumes the Curse of Dragon. When Yugi attacks with his Dark Magician, the Curse of Dragon appears as a shield to protect Relinquished. The Dragon is destroyed, and Yugi loses Life Points! As the Relinquished assimilates the Dark Magician, Yugi changes back to normal to draw one card and play it face down. Then the power of the Shadow Realm takes its toll and little Yugi collapses. Now the Spirit of the Puzzle must fight alone to avenge Yugi but Pegasus plays a self-destructing Bagadan that will destroy every creature on the field...but wipe out Yugi's life points in two turns.

    Meanwhile, Tristan discovers that the Millenium Ring took control of Bakura again and it wants Mokuba as it's new host! Tristan attacks and knocks the possessed Bakura out.

Yami Yugi sacrifices Dark Magician and the captured Jigan-Bakudon to summon his Magician of Black Chaos!

    Pegasus polymerizes his Relinquished with a Thousand-Eyes Idol to get his best monster, the Thousand-Eyes Restrict! As the Restrict captures the Chaos Mage, it also catches the two cards Yami Yugi played, Karebo and Multiply! Thousands of Karebo swarm over the Restrict then self-distruct due to the Jigan-Bakudon, weakening the Restrict so the Magician of Black Chaos can destroy it. Yugi wins the duel!

Shadi uses his own Millennium Key to unlock Yugi's mind and discover Yami Yugi. Shadi reveals that an ancient pharaoh trapped the power of the Shadow Game within the Millennium Items and Yami Yugi lets Shadi into his unconscious mind - a labyrinth of traps and doors. The pure spirit of Yugi comes to Shadi's rescue and they both confront a mental projection of the Dark Magician, another mental defense. Yugi pleads to the Dark Magician, confirming to Shadi that Yugi is the "Chosen One" of ancient prophecy, fated to solve the Millennium Puzzle and prevent evil from unleashing the chaos of the Shadow Game.

    41. The Wrath of Rebecca (1)

    Pegasus has freed Grampa, Mokuba, and Kaiba's souls, Joey has his prize money, and Kaiba and Mokuba are back together. Yugi talks to the spirit of the puzzle and they congardulate each other. They all hitch a ride home from Kaiba, and Bakura in his evil state thinks that he has the best prize of all: Pegasus's Millenium Eye. We don't see him again.
    Back at home, Grandpa is fully recovered. They run into Rebecca, a girl who is only eight but claims to be a world champion and prodidgy at Duel Monsters. Joey and Tristan are very skeptic since she has a teddy bear with her, and she pretends he can talk. Yugi says he read about a Duel Monsters child prodidgy once, so it's possible she's that person. She says that Grandpa stole her Blue Eyes White Dragon, and she wants to duel to get it back. Tea remembers that Kaiba ripped it up in the first episode. Yugi claims that his Grandpa is most certainly not a thief, but she wants to duel anyways. After pulling a few strings with Mokuba, the gang borrows a hologram projector for the duel in Kaiba's amusement park, Kaiba Land. Yugi says that his Grandpa is in no state to duel after just getting out of the hospital, so he duels Rebecca instead.
    Rebecca's frist card is Witch of the Black Forest. Yugi uses Celtic Guardian and destroys it. Rebecca is distraught. Then she pretends that her teddy bear is telling her something. She says that the bear told her that now she could take a card with 1500 or less defense points from her deck since her witch went to the graveyard. She chooses a card. Then she sends out Sangan, and Celtic Guardian destorys it. She acts upset again, but then her teddy "tells" her that she can take a monster from her deck with 1500 or less attack points. She chooses her card and plays a monster face down. Suddenly, she drops her "llittle girl" act and has an attitiude of a pro. She uses a crad that allows her to discard a monster from her hand, and get rid of Yugi's Celtic Guardian. She does this. Meanwhile Grandpa is beginning to remember a duel he had almost exactly like this one. He warns Yugi to be careful. Yugi has Summoned Skull attack the face down card on the field. It's the Millenium Sheild and Yugi loses 500 life pts. She then plays the Ring of Magnetism on the shield, bringing its attack down to 2500 and then plays Cannon Soldier (400/1300). Yugi is worried because Cannon Soldier can attack his life points directly if she sacrifices another monster. Yugi orders Summoned Skull to destory Cannon Soldier, but the Millenium Shiled takes the attack because of the Ring of Magnetism. Then Rebecca plays another Witch of the Black Forest and sacrifces it, causing her to draw another card from her deck. It also lets Cannon Soldier attack Yugi's life points directly. Grandpa now remembers that he played the exact same duel with a friend, Arthur Hawkins. Rebecca says that she is Arthur's Granddaughter. The score is currently: Rebecca 1300 Yugi 1000. Rebecca says that it's hopeless for Yugi, and the episode ends as a cliffhanger.

    42. The Ties of Friendship (2)

    As the duel continues, Yugi's grandfather reveals how he and Rebecca's grandfather Arthur Hawkins and he played a Duel Monsters game while sealed in a pyramid in Egypt. Although Yugi uses the Catapult Turtle and Brain Control to eliminate Rebecca's Millennium Shield and Cannon Soldier, she responds by sacrificing her monsters and plays the Shadow Ghoul, which gains extra attack from each of her monsters in the graveyard. But their game contines to parallel the one Yugi's grandfather and Hawkins played in the crypt.

    Yugi stalls with the Swords of Revealing Light but surrenders just as his grandfather did against Rebecca's grandfather. Then Arthur arrives and we discover that Yugi would have won but chose to let Rebecca win so she'd learn a lesson. In recognition Yugi gives her his Ties of Friendship card.

    With Keith using rare monsters as well as machines, Yugi isn't sure of how he can win the duel but is determined to keep on fighting. Drawing the Koumori Dragon, he plays it in defence mode where his life points will be unharmed if it is destroyed. However as Keith begins his next turn, the person controlling Keith is determined to push Yugi to his limits in the hopes of forcing Yami to appear.

    Playing Seiyaryu, Keith uses Stop Defence to force Yugi's monster into attack mode and then plays one card face down. Attacking Yugi's Dragon, Keith destroys it, reducing Yugi's life points to 400. Keith once again demands that Yami appear, but Yugi still refuses, fearing for his partner's safety. Playing a monster face down, Yugi passes back to Keith who destroys the monster with Seiyaryu. As Keith plays two cards face down, he switches Zera to defence mode and ends his turn.

    Wary as to what Keith is planning, Yugi plays the Dark Magician in defence mode and then plays the Magical Hats, concealing his Magician from Keith's monsters. However as Keith begins his turn, he reveals Magic Jammer, destroying the Hats, and then plays Demon's Ritual to switch the modes of every monster on the field. As Zera attacks Yugi's Magician, Yugi counters the attack with Mirror Force, but Keith pays half of his life points to negate it using Solemn Judgement, destroying Yugi's Magician in the process.

    Outside the warehouse, Bakura senses the dark presence within and uses the Millennium Ring to remove the darkness. Meanwhile with Yugi down to 100 life points and Keith resting at 250 the match could still sway either way. Playing one card face down, Yugi places a monster onto the field face down as well. As Keith's turn begins, he plays Hand Reaching Out to the Dead to destroy Yugi's monster, but Yugi activates the Living Arrow card, causing Zera to be destroyed instead.

    As Bakura enters the warehouse, he senses that Keith is being controlled by another person and uses the Millennium Ring to break the link between the two, but the shock of being set free leaves Keith confused and startled. As Keith's controller tries to take control once more, Keith suspects that the Millennium Puzzle is to blame and smashes it against the side of the arena, shattering it into its separate pieces.

    Bakura knocks Keith away and he and Yugi collect up the pieces of the Puzzle, but Yugi is afraid that it may take him years to reassemble all the pieces. As Yugi remains determined to reassemble the Puzzle, no matter how long it may take him, Yami Bakura is still holding one of the pieces. Bakura recalls how in ancient times the pharaoh and six priests sacrificed themselves to seal all the evil within the seven Millennium Items. Bakura wants Yugi to collect all seven items so that the evil will be released again, but he wants to be able to explore the secrets of the Puzzle until that time arrives.

    Using the power of the Ring, Yami Bakura transfers a small amount of his soul into the piece of the Puzzle and then hands it back to Yugi. As Yugi gathers up all of the pieces of the Puzzle, Bakura heads off for school, however as he leaves Yugi finds that the main piece of the Puzzle is trapped on the hook that attaches it to the arena. Meanwhile Bandit Keith is coming to, still confused, and in an attempt to escape manages to set fire to the warehouse.

    Elsewhere in the town, Joey, Taya and Tristan are still looking for Yugi when they spot smoke rising from a nearby building. Rushing to investigate, they find the last of the arrows that Yugi was following and realise that he must be inside. As Taya heads off to find help, Joey and Tristan try to help Yugi. As Yugi realises that he must assemble the Puzzle inside the warehouse, a race against time begins as the flames spread through the warehouse.

    As Tristan and Joey break down the door to the warehouse, Keith runs out still confused and the two head over to help Yugi, who has managed to reassemble the Puzzle. However as his friends try to get him to leave, Yugi refuses to go without the Puzzle, not wanting to leave Yami behind. As Tristan grabs Yugi's deck from the arena, Joey tries to knock the hook off with a pole but it unable to dislodge it, however just as he is about to give up Yami talks to him, telling him to pull the hook out with the pole. With the hook free, Tristan and Joey have to carry out the unconscious Yugi and as they get out they find Taya waiting for them as a fire crew is tackling the blaze.

    When the gang goes to visit Yugi in the hospital, Yugi explains that he felt like Yami was helping him in the fire and Joey agrees, explaining what happened to him. Tristan thinks that they're both nuts, but Taya comments that the important thing is that they are all safe. However Taya has other things on her mind as she thinks about the two Yugis, realising that Yami is not inside Yugi, but a part of him that rests in the Millennium Puzzle.

However as the two continue to talk, Step Johnny arrives and challenges Taya to another contest, but this time he wants to play her at Duel Monsters. As Taya is stunned by the challenge, Yami accepts the duel in her place, but Johnny warns him that if he loses he must stay away from Taya forever.

    As the duel begins, Yami is determined to teach Johnny a lesson about respect for dancing, and as Johnny plays the Sound Maiden Yugi easily defeats it with the Celtic Guardian, reducing Johnny's life points to 1800. As Johnny plays his second monster, the Water Dancer, Yami realises that Johnny is using fan cards, not seriously intended for duelling but more a set of cards for collectors who like music and dancing.

    However as Yami passes play back to Johnny, his opponent plays the Spirit of the Harp in defence more before increasing it's DEF by 500 through the power of the Soothing Song. Surprised by the play, Yugi plays Curse of Dragon, destroying the Water Dancer and reducing Johnny's life points to 1200, but Johnny retaliates with the Witch of the Black Forest, fusing it with his Lady of Faith to form the Musician King.

    As the Musician King attacks, Yugi's Guardian is destroyed, reducing his life points to 1650, and as Johnny ends his turn he plays one card face down. Yugi attacks the Musician King with his Curse of Dragon, but as he does so Johnny reveals his Magic Metal Force, transforming his monster into the Heavy Metal King, destroying Yugi's Dragon.

    As Yugi plays the Giant Soldier of Stone in defence mode, the power of Magic Metal Force increases the Heavy Metal King's ATK to 2700 and Johnny destroys Yugi's Soldier. Shocked by the King's ability to increase it's ATK for each monster that it has destroyed, Yugi realises that he can still win the match as he summons the Dark Magician and orders it to attack.

    As Johnny reminds Yugi of his Metal Force, Yugi informs his opponent that the Trap's powers only work when Johnny is attacking, not when he is being attacked. As the Heavy Metal King is destroyed, Johnny is shocked to realise just who his opponent is and surrenders, realising that there is no way for him to win.

    As Johnny tries to leave the arena, Taya confronts him, telling him not to give up on his dreams. Johnny explains that he gave up trying to become a dancer when he failed an audition, but Taya tells him that he shouldn't have given up after just one try and that if he keeps on trying then he will eventually succeed.

    As Johnny promises to keep trying, Taya and Yami decide to visit the museum, but when the two arrive Yami is apprehensive about going in, not sure if he is ready to have his questions answered. But with Taya by his side Yami has the confidence he needs to find out who he really is.

    NOTE: it may just be me, but Johnny Steps kinda gives off a 'DJ Professor K from Jet Set Radio Future' vibe.
  • When Yugi walks out of the card shop it shows the close - up of lightforce sword, but behind it is flying kamakiri #2 and kiseitai, probably a warning of joey's duel with weevil.(those two cards are use by weevil in playing with a parasite 1)
  • The dancing arcade game music is the Yu-Gi-Oh theme song sped up.

  • 54. Obelisk the Tormentor

    Deciding that the time has come to find out who he really is, Yami enters the museum, with Taya by his side, in the hopes that he will find the answers he seeks. As the two walk around the exhibit, Yami spots a cordoned off area that leads down to a sub-level of the museum and decides to investigate.

    Reaching the bottom of the stairs, Taya is confused to see the stone tablet with the carving of Yami as the Egyptian Pharaoh, but Yami is relieved to finally know who he is, the soul of the pharaoh. As the two study the tablet Isis arrives and explains that she knew that the two were coming because her Millennium Item, the Millennium Tauk, had shown it to her.

    As Isis and Yami talk, she explains that Yami must gather all seven Millennium Items together in order to restore his memories. However Isis warns Yami that somebody else is also after all of the items and that Yami will have to face this new adversary before he can recover his memories. As Isis tells Yami to go to the plaza where his quest to recover his memories will begin, Yami wants to know why his soul was sealed inside the Puzzle, but is distracted when he spots the carving of Kaiba on the tablet.

    Elsewhere, at Kaibacorp's Research and Development department, Kaiba is preparing to run the final test on his new Duel Disk system. As the systems prepare, Kaiba is proud of his new invention, a version of the disk that doesn't require throwing to project the images but instead uses projectors that are released when the duel begins. As the disks are used, all of the data is processed instantly using Kaibacorp's satellite systems, making it possible to duel absolutely anywhere.

    As the computer system launches, the Robo Duellist's challenge level is set to maximum, a challenge that will give even Kaiba a run for his money, and a perfect chance for him to try out the God of Obelisk. As Kaiba inserts his deck into the disk, the life points are set to 4000 and the projectors are released to the sides.

    As both Kaiba and the Robo Duellist draw their opening hands, the Robo plays a monster face down before passing play back to Kaiba, who plays one card face down before summoning the Battle Ox. But as Kaiba's monster attacks the Robo reveals the Cyber Pod, destroying both monsters but allowing each player to search the top five cards of their deck for any monsters of level four or below.

    As the Robo plays two monsters face down in defence mode, Kaiba summons four monsters, however as his opponent takes it's next turn it tributes the two monsters in order to summon the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Kaiba remembers how the new rules mean that tributes must be paid to summon a high-level monster like the Blue-Eyes, and is impressed at the way the Robo used the Cyber Pod to set up the tribute.

    Sacrificing the Hitotsu-Me Giant, Kaiba summons the Dragon Slayer, hoping to use it to destroy the Blue-Eyes, but as the Robo's turn begins it plays a card face down before summoning the Lord of Dragons, preventing all destructive attacks from affecting dragons on the field. As Kaiba switches his monsters to defence mode, Mokuba is worried about how his big brother can win as the Robo uses the Flute of Summon Dragon to play the other two Blue-Eyes, before fusing them to form the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon.

    As Mokuba learns that the disks are set to inflict combat damage, he is worried that his brother could get seriously hurt, but fortunately the new rules state that a fused monster must wait a turn before attacking. Face-to-face with the powerful monster, Kaiba senses the fear that Yugi must have felt going up against the Ultimate Dragon, but as he puts his trust in his cards he successfully draws the card that will win him the match, God of Obelisk.

    Sacrificing three monsters as tributes, Kaiba summons the God onto the field, but as he sacrifices two more monsters to increase the ATK of the God, the computer systems begin to overload. Attacking with the powerful beast, Kaiba destroys the Blue-Eyes and wins the duel, but although he is amazed at the power of just one God card, the power it displayed makes him eager to reclaim the other two.

    As Yami and Taya arrive at the plaza, Yami asks Taya not to tell Yugi what has happened and she agrees, but as the two continue to talk Yugi senses a strange aura to the plaza. As he prepares to mention the fact to Taya, Mai arrives, teasing Yami and Taya because she realises that they are on a date together.

    As Mai finishes teasing the pair, Yami asks Mai why she is here and she is surprised to learn that Yami is at the plaza even though he hasn't heard the news. Mai explains that news has been leaked over the internet that something will be happening at the plaza and explains that that is why so many duellists are about.

    As Yami looks around the plaza he spots a number of familiar faces; Rex Raptor, Weevil Underwood and Mako Tsunami and Mai catches sight of Esper Roba, another talented duellist. As the duellists scout out the rest of the competition, all of the video screens turn on as Seto Kaiba prepares to make an announcement to the crowd.

    Kaiba explains that that in a week's time a new tournament will take over the city and that each duellist taking part needs a new Duel Disk system and a deck of 40 cards that includes a number of rare cards. As a helicopter arrives in the plaza, Kaiba gets out and is pleased to see that Yugi has turned up. He announces that the duels will use a new set of rules and that the winner of each duel will have the right to claim one rare card from the loser. Shocked to hear the news, both Mai and Yami realise that this tournament will be nothing like Duellist Kingdom.

    As Kaiba announces that the city will become Battle City, a robed figure is watching the proceedings from an unknown location. Realising that all the best duellists will be in one place, Malik decides that the time has come to put things into action and he orders the Rare Card Hunters to make their way to the tournament to claim the pick of the cards.

    b: 30-Nov-2002

    NOTE: The Battle City rules are a much closer representation to the real life rules of Duel Monsters, with the exception that the Battle City duels start with 4000LP not 8000LP

    55. Stalked by the Rare Hunters

    When Joey finds out about Battle City, he and Yugi head to the Game Shop where the duelling systems can be obtained. But while Yugi is ranked as a 5 star duellist and qualifies for the tournament, Joey is only a 1 star duelist, and is not eligable for the tournament, until the store owner sees that he has a Red-Eyes in his deck and changes his rank. However as Joey heads over to the hospital where Serenity is about to have her operation, he is attacked and challenged to a duel using Battle City rules. Joey thinks he is doing well until his opponent manages to summon Exodia and then takes his Red-Eyes as the reward. Devastated, Joey doesn't turn up at the hospital and Serenity refuses to have the operation until Tristan finds her brother and brings him to her.

    b: 14-Dec-2002

    56. Yugi vs. the Rare Hunter (1)

    The episode begins with Grandpa complaining that Yugi hasn't done his chores. He then gets excited and closes the shop to watch the Battle City Tournament. Everyone goes foward to the starting points and Kaiba flies over in his blimp explaining the rules. He starts the tournament and Joey tells Yugi that that's the Rare Hunter is the one who took his Red Eyes Black Dragon. Joey wants a rematch but the rare hunter declines but he challenges Yugi because he wants his Dark Magician. The duel begins and Joey tries to tell Yugi the Rare Hunter's strategy but the Rare Hunter says if he tells him his strategy he'd rip his Red Eyes. Yugi begins the duel with Beta the Magnet Warrior(1400/1700) in attack mode along with two cards face down. On the Rare Hunter's turn Yugi activated Light of Invertention preventing the Rare Hunter to play cards face-down. The Rare Hunter doesn't care since he already has two pieces of Exodia and then he played Graceful Charity to draw three cards and then discard two. He now has three pieces of Exodia and he summons Stone Statue(300/2000) in defense mode and ended his turn. Yugi countered by sacrificing his Warrior to play Berfomet King of the Mythical Beasts which also summons Gazelle King of the Mythical Beasts. Then he fused both of them with Polymerization to form Chimera the Flying Mythical Beasts(2100/1800). Since Battle City rules says Fusion Monsters can't attack same turn summoned so Yugi simply ended his turn. The Rare Hunter played another Gracful Charity giving the Rare Hunter four pieces of Exodia. Next the Rare Hunter played a Fortress(800/2200) in defense mode. Using his x-ray contact lense he sees he's about to draw the final piece of Exodia. Joey tries to tell him his strategy but stops him. He reminds Joey the time when Weevil threw his Exodia pieces into the ocean. Just then Yugi figured out the Rare Hunter's starategy but how will Yugi win when the next card he draws is the final piece of Exodia?

    b: 11-Jan-2003

    NOTE: This episode marks the premiere of the new opening sequence. The music is simply a different section of the full Yu-Gi-Oh! Theme (found on the Music to Duel By soundtrack) while the clips in the new opening go all the way to the end of Battle City and include clips from the first three Japanese openings (Voice, Shuffle AND Wild Drive).

    57. Yugi vs. the Rare Hunter (2)

    Yami Yugi begins by putting one card faced down and use Chimera to destroy defense monster. Now when the Rare Hunter is about to draw the final piece of Exodia, Yami Yugi reveals his trap card which was Time Seal, which makes the opponent skip his drawing phase. That move may have help Yugi for one turn but he better think up of another plan though.

    Then Yami Yugi plays Lightforce Sword(he got this card in Stepping Out) and Lightforce Sword dstroys one card for three turns, but the Lightforce Sword attacks randomly, Yami Yugi stiill took the risk and to his surprise, the Lightforce Sword destroy the right arm of Exodia, the Rare Hunter is now piss and then Yami Yugi summoned Summoned Skull by sacrificing Chimera.

    Instead the Rare Hunter played Swords of Revealing Light therefore makes the Summoned Skull unable to attack! Then the rare Hunter drew a card and it was the head of Exodia, Exodia the Forbidden One, not the card he needs to summon Exodia.

    Then Yami Yugi summoned Magnet Warrior, then Yami Yugi explain that there is a big fault in the Rare Hunter's deck because his deck is based on Exodia then puts a card faced down. The Rare Hunter drew another card but it was Left Leg of Exodia, again not the card he need. But the rare Hunter doesn't have any defenses and since he has two heads of Exodia on his hand right now, he instead plays the Head of Exodia in defense mode, doing that activates Yugi's faced down card which was Chain Destrution, Chain Destrution will destory the monster on the field and will destroy the same copies of the monster out on the field, meaning Head of Exodia, so all the Rare Hunter's Head of Exodia are now destroyed making it IMPOSSIBLE to summon Exodia now. But the Rare Hunter said that Swords of Revealing is still in play so Yugi can't attack, but Yami Yugi, instead played Dust Tornado, which destroys one magic crad on the field, now with Swords of Revealing Light destroyed, both Summoned Skull and Magnet Warrior can attack the Rare Hunter's life points directly, Yami Yugi also use Monster Reborn to reborn Chimera and then he use Summoned Skull's attack points and add it to Magnet Warrior, so now Magnet Warrior have 4100 attack points since he originally had 1400 attack points. The Yami Yugi use Magnet Warrior to attack the Rare Hunter's life points directly and the Rare Hunter lost.

    Then Yami Yugi approach him and search his deck for Joey's Red Eyes Black Dragon, but something was wrong, he feels the inks on the Rare Hunter's Exodia cards slip off his hand and then he realized that teh Exodia cards are marked with invisible ink and therefore it is fake, so Yami Yugi simply rip them up pieces to pieces.

    Meanwhile the Rare Hunter started paniking saying to his master let he go, he is sorry for losing! But then the Rare Hunter started floating up and move like a windup doll and then a yellow eye appears on his forehead like Yami Yugi's. Yami Yugi then said that that is the Millennium Sign and the "master" started talking using the Rare Hunter's body as a speak through dummy, he reveal himself as Marik, he reveal to Yami Yugi that he owns the Millennium Rod and it brainwashes people and he desires to own all 7 Millennium Items. Then Marik talk about how he is going to get all the ancient Egyptian God card, Yami Yugi didn't know what it was until Marik explain it to him and now Marik said that he will get revenge eventually then he stopped talking.

    Yami Yugi tries to give Joey back his Red Eyes but Joey won't take it unless he can win it in a duel. Joey also said that with the Red Eyes in Yugi's deck, it will be like Joey's spirit is also in Yugi's deck, plus he also remember that Yugi gave him the Time Wizard and the Time Wizard is his current rarest card. Then both walk away in different directions.

    b: 18-Jan-2003

    58. Espa Roba - The ESP Duellist (1)

    Joey is out looking for a duel on the second day of battle city. He finds Rex Raptor who was just beaten by a duelist by the name Of Espa Roba. Rex warns Joey about Roba's ESP, but Joey challenges him anyway.

    Meanwhile, Triston is visiting Serenity in the hospital. He brought a laptop so they could watch the tornament on the internet. Triston seems to forget that Serenity can't quite see yet from time to time. To make matters worse, he dosn't know how to turn the computer on!

    Yugi is also looking for a duel. He hears about Joey dueling and goes off to find him.

    Back at the hospital, Triston got a nurse to get the computer working and is telling Serenity about Joey's duel.

    Joey is about to make a move when Roba calls for his phsycic powers. Joey ignors him and plays Giltia the Knight. However, his move is stopped because he needs to sacrifice a monster. Espa also predicts the top card in Joeys card, and gets it right. Roba attaks and takes a big chunk out of Joey's life points.

    Yugi who is watching from a balconey sees a group of boys, who look alot like Roba, speaking into a wakie-takie. They are telling Roba what Joey's cards are. The boys see that Joey drew a Graceful Dice card an tell Roba. They also see another dice card in Joey's hand and think it's also a Graceful Dice. What they don'tknow is that it's Skull Dice, not Graceful Dice.

    Joey figues out that Roba was almost right when he said Joey drew another Graceful Dice and decides to trick him. First he places one monster on the feild. Then he put's both Dice cards on the field and figures that Roba wil think they are both Graceful Dice. Roba dose think just that and dose not think that the second one is a thret. He says that Joey can only use one Graceful Dice per turn.

    Roba sacrifices a monster to call out a stronger one. Joey activates Graceful Dice and it lands on a three, bringing his monster's attack to 1500, not nearly enough to bring down Roba's monster. Roba attak, and is shocked when Joey playes the other face down card, Skull Dice. The dice lands on five, bringing Roba's monster down to 440 attack power. Thats when Joey figures out that someone is telling Roba what Joey's cards are.

    Mokuba also finds out and tries to bust the cheaters. But they tell him that their big brother is dueling for them. Roba dose it so when older kids pick on his brothers, they will stop because they respect his dueling talents. Mokuba belives their story and dose not stop the duel. He figures this is alot how Seto protected him, and cuts them a break, as lond as they stop cheating. (The only other person who saw this was Yugi.)

    Back at the duel Roba denies everything and tells his brothers to read the cards right next time. It's too bad he dosn't know that they wont tell him anymore because of what Mokuba told them.
    So Espa plays one card face down and ends his turn. Joey attacks Roba's life points whith Aligator Sword. He tries again with his other card, but is stopped by a trap card, Mind Control. Joey sees that the only reason Roba wants that card is so he can sacrifice it, so he plays a trap card to stop the monster that Roba is going to bring out. Roba sommons a monster by sacrificing Joeys card, and the monster can destroy all trap cards.

    59. Espa Roba - The ESP Duellist (2)

    As the duel continues Espa plays Amplifier to raise Jinzo's attack to 2900. But on his next turn it'll raise another 300. Roba attack's Jeoy's Aligator Sword reducing him to 1200 life points.

    Espa Roba's brother still cheer him on while Yugi says Joey can win.

    Roba tells Joey to give up bur he refuses and he draws the Baby Dragon. Joey plays him and Rex remebers the same move. Roba laughs at his move and joey then plays Time Wizard. Roba also realizes his combo and Joey does it any ways. He knows that Jinzo will rust and Baby Dragon will grow up. The time rulet lands on a time machine and the Baby Dragon turns to a Thousand Dragon. But Jinzo isnt rusted. Espa tells Joey Jinzo has a special armou so he cant rust.

    Yugi still thinks Joey can win though.
    Espa attacks Joey's dragon with destroying it and bringing him down to 700.

    At the hospital Tristen has to lie again to Serenity and says Joey is winning. She belives him and he is worried. The nurse comes in and Tristen leaves fo a while. He has an idea and leaves. Serenity asks the the nurse to tell her who is winning the duel.

    It then shows Tea' and Grampa sneaks up on her and she almost breakes his nose. She gets a call from Tristen telling her to find Joey.

    Roba tells Joey he has lost but Joey refuses to believe it and plays Scape Goat to stall for time. Roba laughs and agin tells him to give up. Rex also tells him to give up but Joey doesnt listen.
    Back at the hospital Serenity tells Tristen not to lie about the duel and that she knows Joey has been loseing. Tristen says sorry and she forgives him and says he'll win cause she'll help him in spirit.

    Its Roba's turn and he summons Reflct Bounder(something like that) The monster reflects attacks right back at Joey and Joey tells him to attack. Jinzo's attack raises to 3200. Espa orders Jinzo and Reflect Bounder to attack the scape goats. Two are dead. Roba laughs at Joey and says he's a gonner. Joey tels himself he has to win.
    Yugi tells him to keep trying.

    Joey then starts telling himself he cant win and that he'll lose but then Tea shows up. She tells him that Serenity says that they'r a team forever and she believes in him. Joey smiles and says he's not giving up. He is gonna beat Espa Roba. Grandpa tells Joey he can win and Joey believes. He draws and what he drew was the Rulet Spider. The spider attaches itself to Jinzo. Joey says that Jinzo will walk to the center of the duel. Espa asks whats happening and Joey says " for a duelist with ESP you sure ask alot of questions" Joey tells Espa that Jinzo will spin around and when Roba tells it to stop it'll stop and what ever it stops on it will attack it. Rex says the idea is stupid and it wouldnt work. The spider spins and spins and Espa is afraid to tell it to top. Eventually he does and it stops on his Reflect Bounder. Jinzo attacks and attacks Reflect Binder. It kills it but also reflects the attack back at Jinzo. They both have died lowering Espa's life points to 0. Joey has won.
    Espa is being picked on by the crowd and Joey asks for Jinzo and the locator card. Espa freaks out and refuses. He says people count on him to win and that he doesnt get it. He has to win cause he's dueling for his brothers. If his reputation as a loser spreads his brothers will be picked on. Joey asks if he needs help but Roba refuses. Joey starts to walk off but they all hear Roba's brother in the ear piece. His brothers say that he isnt a loser and he's the best.
    Yugi walks away.

    Roba gives up Jinzo and the locator card and says sorry. Joey accepts the apology. Joey walks off with Tea and Gramps.

    Yugi tells himself Joey has gotten better. Joey also tells himself he'll go farther in the tournament and that he did good for his first duel.

    60. The Master of Magicians (1)

    Its still the second day of the tournament and a duelist is pbeing pushed around by another. He says he should take two of the kid's rare cards for winning but the kid refuses. The winner grabs him but then the great Mokuba shows up and repots a violation. The champ tells him to get lost but Mokuba says no and that he's the comistioner. The man tells him to get lost or he'll hurt him but then Kaiba Shows up. Kaiba challenges him after giving him the rarest cards to add to his deck. Its Kaiba's turn and he some how brings out Obilisk and beats the kid in one turn!

    Marik then finds out that Kaiba has played Obilisk. He tells how he used to rob temples for the other two cards and that his siter Ezhezu has been trying to beat him all along. He had threatened to use his Millennium Rod against her if she stands in his way again. He knows she gave Kaiba Obilisk and thats why the Battle City Tournament has taken place. He plans to weaken Yugi by sending a man named Arkana to deal with him.

    Tristen leaves Serenity to stay at the hospital and she asks that when she gets her bandages removed if he will take her to Battle City to see Joey duel. He promises and leaves.

    Joey, Tea' and Gramps are walking in the streets. Tea' tells Joey his duel with Espa was awesomeand Gramps says he's impressed at how his dueling skills have improved. Then Tea and Gramps go in search for Yugi.

    It shows Yugi holding Joey's Red Eyes and he says he's glad he has it and its like Joey is with him. He says he hopes Joey can get through the tournament without it and Yami says he will.Then Yugi wanders where Marik will strike next when a clown looking guy appears out of no where. Yugi asks who he is and the clown says to go to a tent ahead to duel his master. Thats when Tea' and Gramps show up and call out to Yugi but he doesnt seem to hear and walks into the tent. Ahead is a box that Yugi has used in duels and the clown comes out of it. He says his master is waiting and to come inside.
    Yugi walks in and Tea and Gramps call out once mre but he ignores them again and dispears into the box.

    Kaiba and Mokuba realize the tracking device cant track Yugi and Kaiba tells Mokuba to check the signal again.

    Yugi then appears out of the box into an office. Then theres a computer telling his stats for dueling and that he has 5 star ranking and his rarest card is the Dark Magician. Then the Dark Magician appears but in a shade of red not purple. It tells Yugi he is not worthy of having him in his deck. Then Arkana appears in front of Yugi. He says Yugi's Dark Magician will soon be in his deck and that only a true master can hold a Dark Magician. Arakan challenges Yugi and he accepts. Yugi says that his Dark Magician is connected to him and he wont lose him. Arakana leads him to a dueling arena below. Yugi suspects that Arakana works for Marik and cautiously follows. The duel starts as the floor beneath them both start to move backwards and shackles appear around both of their feet.Arkana then tells him that whoever lose will be touched by a Dark Energy Disk they will lose their mind to the Shadow Realm. Theres a key box that will open when someone has won and then the winner can escape.
    They draw cards Arakana Reveals that he has a Dark Magician in his hand and that he trimmed the edges of his Dark Magicians so that they would each fall on top. Yugi goes first by playing a card face down and Alpha the magnet warrior in defsne mode and Arkana plays a monster in defense mode and says he's gonna tribute for his Dark Magician but the Yugi plays Card Destruction. They discard their hands and draw new ones. Yugi uses his face down card Brain control and takes Arkana's defense monster and tributes his and Arkana's for his Dark Magician. Arkana is now shaken up and Yugi attacks directly reducing his life points to 1500.Arkana gets mad as the dark energy disk gets closer and that he'll be playing harder and Yugi will lose.

    b: 08-Feb-2003

    NOTE: Arkana is Pandora in Japanese version.
  • It should be noted that in the original version (i.e. the Japanese original) of this episode, the loser of the Duel would get his legs cut off by a buzzsaw, not have his mind sent to the Shadow Realm by the Dark Energy Disk.

  • 61. The Master of Magicians (2)

    This episode starts off with the duel between Arkana and Yugi. Yugi tells Arakana to give up but he refuses and that he will win and get the Dark Magician.

    Tea' and Gramps are still searching for Yugi and that they gotta find him. Gramps says they will.

    Arkana starts off his move with Mystic Tomato is defense mode and a card face down. Yugi thinks that he should summon another monster and Arakana wants him to. Yugi plays Beta the magnet warrior and Arkana activates a trap card that lets him sacrifice Yugi's Alpha and the mystic tomato to bring back a monster from the grave yard...the Dark Magician. Its Dark Magician vs Dark Magician and if they attack eachother they'll both die. Yugi plays four cards face down and Arakana copies him. Arkana activates Mystical Guitine to kill the Dark Magician. The blade falls toward the Dark Magician's head as Yugi activates Magical hats and saves his favorite monster.
    Arkana then plays Thousand Knives and his Dark Magician thows the knives at the middle hat where Yugi's Dark Magician is. Yugi then activates Curse Breaker(which looks like De-Spell.) Curse Breaker destroys all magic cards(even the Magical Hats even though its really a trap.) Yugi tells Arkana that destroying his Dark Magician wont be easy. They each oder their Dark Magicians to attack eachother and they die but then they both activate Monster Reborn and bring them both back. Its a true stalemate. Yugi tells Arkana to finish the duel with honor but he refuses. Yugi asks Arkana why he led him down here and trapped him.
    Arkana then pulls off his mask and Yugi sounds discusted. Arkana tells Yugi his past and how he was a magician with fame, glory and love(like pegasus i guess.) He says that when he did a routine escape trick it failed and he was seariously hurt. When he was in the Hospital he drove Kathrine(his love)away and she disapeared. Thats when he found Marik who promised to return Kathrine useing the Millennium Rod.
    Yugi told him that working for Marik wont help get Kathrine back but then there was a curtain behind him. It hid Kathrine. Yugi told him he should of never trusted Marik and that he should believe in his slef and his deck. Arkana says that they'r just cards but Yugi says they have spirit. The only reason why Arkana made his deck was to just destroy Yugi.

    Mean while, Tea' and Gramps are still searching for Yugi. They searched the streets lake every where and still no sign of him.

    At Kaiba Corp Mokuba and Kaiba still are searching for him on the computer so the find a bunch of copmuters that are capatable with Battle City computers and to track dowmn Yugi. Mokuba says he will go to the streets and to radio him when they find Yugi.

    Back at the duel Yugi tells Arkana to make his move and he plays a card face down. Its Yugi's turn and he plays two cards face down. Arkana activates his magic card which will destroy Yugi's Magician but Yugi counters yet again saving his Magician. Arkana then says that was his plan all along and he activates a trap card which traps the Dark Magician out of the field on the side lines.(like Light Force Sword.) Arkana then attacks Yugi directly with his Dark Magician reducing his life points to 1500. They are now tied. The Dark Magician watches helplessly actually looking like he is alive. Its Yugi's turn and he draws.

    Tea' and Gramps have given up on finding Yugi when Mokuba shows up and tells them he knows where Yugi is and to follow him and they'll find him.

    Yugi plays a monster in defense mode with a defsne of 2600. Arkana teases him but then plays Doll of Demise and then plays a magic card called Ectoplmer which takes the spirit of a monster and attacks Yugi directly. Yugi is surprised. Arkana says that he'll beat Yugi. Yugi says that his monsters will be zombies and Arkana says he doesnt card and his Magician also seems to be thinking for himself as a real creature instead of a hologram.
    The Doll of Demises spirit hits Yugi reducing his life points to 700. The Dark Energy Disk gets closer to Yugi and his Dark Magician looks at his friend helplessly. Arkana then uses Ectoplasmer again but on his Dark Magician and the spirit goes at Yugi directly. Then all of a sudden Yugi's Magician's ectoplasma is activated and blocks the direct attack. Arkana and Yugi arte both surprised by this act. Yugi says that since Ectoplasmer wa used on Arkana's Magician it also does it to Yugi's saving him from losing.

    62. The Master of Magicians (3)

    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...

    gs: Veronica Taylor (Kenta)

    Maia and Yugi are waiting for Joey in the town square when he finaly shows up. they show each other's locator cards. Mai has four, Yugi 3 while Joey only has two. Joey promises he'll catch up and they all split up. Yugi knows the Marik has something watching hi m and he guesses right. A weird looking guy was on his left a few feet away watching him.

    Tea and Tristen go to see Yugi but he had already left and Tea says they would of seen him but Tristen was on the phone flirting with Serenity. Gramps says that he'll get his shoes and he'll help find him.

    Joey is walking the streets loo,king for a duel when a kid calls his name. He asks for Joey's autograph to give to his sister,Jessica. The Kid also asks to try on the Duel Disk. As Joey starts to right his naem he notices the kid has run off. Joey high tails right after him.
    Tristen, Tea and Gramps see two kids running and they find out its Joey running after a kid with a Duel Disk. Tristen jumps down and grabs the kid by the shirt. He asks why the kid has Joey's Duel Disk and Joey said he stole it.
    I'm guessing in the town square the kid says sorry for taking it and that he had finaly made a dueling deck when a kid stole it. He said the kid had bug eyes, and a head that looks like a beetle. Every guesses it was Weevil. The kid said that Weevil was by the fountain and they all run off to find him. The kid then grinns evily.

    The kid is running down an alley and finds Weevil. Weevil aska if the plan worked and the kid nodded and sai they believed his every word. The kid then asks for the rare card Weevil promised and Weevil gives him a card everyone has. The kid gets mad but Weevil sprays him with goo.
    Weevil then walked away saying that Joey has taken the bait and has fallen into his trap.

    At the hospital Serenity hears her door open and looks around even tho she cant see. A nurse comes in and asks if she's seen a boy named Kenta. She says no and the Nurse leaves. She tells the boy to come out and he does. Kenta was supposed to get an x-ray but he's scared and Serenity tells him its not all scary. Kenta feels better and says that he wants to repay her and she asks him to look up Joey's duel.

    Joey, Tea, Tristen, and Gramps arrive at the town square and look for Weevil. He finaly shows up and Joey says thta he stole the boy's cards. Weevil denys it. Tristen gets ready to fight and says he'll refreash his memory ut Joey stops him and challenges Weevil to a duel. Tea tells him to be careful as Weevil is a cheater. Weevil tells her to watch out as his bugs may bight her fingers off. Weevil says they'll duel for two locator cards if Joey even has two. Joey gets mad and accepts and sasks how many Weevil has. Weevil also has two and Joey says he'll kick him out of the tournament like Yugi did.
    Joey, and Weevil activate their duel disks and Joey plays Swordsman of Landstar and a card face down. Weevil plays a monster with an attack of 1400 and def of 900. Joey activates his Sword and Shield switching the attacks and defenses. Joey's monster's attack is now 1200 while Weevil's is 900. Weevil's life points go down to 3700. Joey starts to celebrate but Weevil's destroyed monster lets him summon and stronger monster to the field.

    At the hospital Kenta is looking up Joey and sees he's dueling Weevil a regional champ. Serenity tells him not to worry as Joey came in second at Duelist Kingdom.(we hear about that a lot) Kenta is surprised.


    Joey isnt worried about Weevil's new monster as he just drew Jinzo, his newly won card. Jinzo attacks the new monster reducing Weevil's life points to 2800. Weevil gets mad and Joey's friends cheer him on. Weevil plays another monster in defense mode and wants Joey to attack. Joey tells him to set them up and he'll knock him down and Jinzo attacks the defense monster. It was a weird type of monster that attaches itself to the first monster that attacks it and gives Weevil 1200 extra life points every time its Joey's turn.
    Weevil plays a monster in defense mode and he gets 1200 extra life points raising him back to 4000 as its now Joey's turn. Joey attacks Weevil's defense monster and destroys it. Weevil then gets more life points. His life points increased by 500 cause of the destroyed monster. Gramps tells Tea and Tristen that bug type monsters are real tricky. Weevil then plays another monster in defense mode and his life points go to 5700.

    At the hospital Serenity finds that Joey is dueling good but Weevil keeps turning the duel around. Serenity still believes in him and Kenta starts to too.

    Joey plays Panther Warrior and sacrifices Jinzo to get rid of the leech monster and attacks the defense monster. The gang cheers Joey on. Weevil then says its time to start to play for real and he plays Larva Moth and Joey reconizes the monster. Weevil then plays Cocoon of Evelution. In five turns the Great Moth will come alive but this time in its perfect form that has never been seen by the gang.

    Kenta and Serenity see the move Weevil made. Serenity tells Kenta not to worry. Kenta says that Joey better hurry and make a great move.

    Joey and Weevil continue dueling and Weevil says that Joey has a Parasite monster in his deck and plays Reckless Parasite toi bring it out. Joey says that he doesnt have any insect cards in his deck when the parasite pops out. Weevil laughs and says looks like he does. Jeoy thinks back and realizes the kid must of put it in there. Tea is grossed out by the site of the bug.
    Now Joey's monsters will now be infected. Weevil plays one last card face down. Joey then says he's gonna attack with his Panther Warrior but Weevil says he cant cause h has to sacrifice but Joey's monsters cant be sacrificed cause of the parasite.Joey says he has another plan and plays Tiny Guardian andit gets infected. Joey then sees that Weevil's cocoon has 0mattack points. Weevil says that the cocoon has a hard defense so it cant be penetrated but then realises that its in attack mode. Joey's Tiny Guardian attacks the coccon but Weevil isnt worried and he activates Insect Barrier. The magic card protects all attacks from Joey's insects. Joey's monster's are hosts for the parasites makeing them insects.
    Tristen and Gramps tell him to be careful. Weevil says its hopeless as the cocoon will soon open up in four turns for the Great Moth.

    Serenity asks Kenta whats going on and Kenta says that Joey's monsters are still infected. She then asks about the Larva Moth and Kenta says theres four more turns before it turns into a Great Moth and that its gonna take a miracle for a win.

    Weevil says that since the barrier is up Joey cants attack and says he'll begin taking down his life points. Joey says he knows he can win and maybe he can use the parasite to his advantage. ZWeevil then plays Legul a monster that can attack Life Points directly and it does that reducing Joey's Life Poinst to 3700. Joey switches his monster's to defense mode and Weevil attacks with his Legul directly again and again until theres one turn left before the moth comes out. Joey's life points are now at 3100 While Weevil stands at 5700.
    Tristen tells Weevil to stop talking about his moth but Joey tells him to stop. He remembered when he tried to help Yugi with his duel with the Rare Hunter. He says that he has to try and win alone. Joey then plays Aligator Swrod in defense mode and a card face down. His new monster is now infected. Weevil laughs and his Moth starts to come out. This time the moth is bigger, uglier and more powerful with an attack of 3500.

    gs: Veronica Taylor (Kenta)

    As the duel between Joey and Weevil continues Joey still ahs his monsters as Parasites and still cant attack because of the Insect Barrier. Tea, TRisten and Gramps still believe in Joey while Weevil says to say good bye to Battle City. The Great Moth attacks the Alligator Sword. Joey's life points still stands at 3100 while Weevil's stand at 5700. Tristen makes a remark making Weevil ask if he's Joey's pom pom girl. Tristen gets all mad and threatens he'll go over there and beat him up. Weevil reminds them that Joey's monsters stoill are infected by the parasite which will block his attacks. He also says that nothing can beat the Great Moth except Gate Guardian and the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon which Joey doesnt have.

    Back at the hospital Kenta pushes the labtop out of the way and lies down saying there isnt hope for Joey. Serenity still believes in Joey and says he can win. Kenta says that even Joey's best moves arent good enough and maybe he should just run away. Serenity reminds Kenta thats what he did and Kenta still doesnt want his x ray taken and that he'll stay in Serenity's room.

    Back at the duel Joey still hasnt gotten an idea on how to beat Weevil's Moth. He draws a card he needs and plays one card face down and switches his monsters to attack mode. Everyone is shocked and Tristen thinks he's gone nuts. Weevil draws his next card and lays a monster in defense mode and Leghul attacks directly again. Joey:2800. Weevil is gonna attack the parasite monster with his Moth reducing Joey's life points to 0 but Joey has other plans. He activates Skull Dice which lands on a two reducing the Moth to 1750. Weevil doesnt mind but then Joey activates his Graceful Dice raising the Parasites attack to 2000. The Moth is destroyed and Weevil's life points go to 5450.
    Kenta and Serenity cheer for Joey as a new hope comes.

    Weevil is now mad but gets over it as he plays Insect Soldier of the Sky and then Plays a bug spray magic card destroying his Hiphopper. Hiphopper lets Weevil bring any monster from his hand to field and plays Insect Queen. Weevil then tells that the Insect Queen absorbs every insects attack on the field. The Insect Queen's attack raises to 3200.
    Kenta gets worried again because of the new monster but Serenity says that they can help him as she had helped her go through her eye operation. Kenta asks if Serenity will be his friend and she laughs and says yes.
    Back at the duel Weevil sacrifices Leghul attack the Insect Queen destroys the Tiny Guardian lowering Joey's life points to 1000. Then the Queen lays an egg leting her store her attack points. Joey frantically searches for a way to win as he draws his next card. He lays the card face down but Gramps realizes Joey forgot to switch his monsters to defense mode. Weevil laughs and yet again attacks after sacrificing the Caoch Roach Knight. Joey then activates a trap letting him take one of Weevil's monsters to block the attack reducing Weevil to 3250.
    Kenta celebrates agin as Serenity quietly tells herself she knew he could hold on.
    Joey then switches his monsters to defense mode as Weevil draws the caoch Roach Knight again and sacrifices it to feed the Queen. He attacks the Panther Warrior, killing it. Joey doesnt want to summon a new monster as the parasite will take it over. Joey then starts to tell himself that he cannot win but Tea tells him not to give up. Tristen reminds Joey that he needs to duel for bis sister as she looks up to him for strength. This gets Joey's attention. He says that she was there for him when he dueled Espa Roba and that he cant give up.
    Kenta cheers saying that Joey can win if he trys. Serenity freaks out but Kenta says that they gotta keep cheering.
    Tea once again says not to give up and Weevil tells him to give up but he refuses and draws a card which may help Joey. He then plays a card face down and summons GearFried the Iron Knight which cant be taken over by the Parasite as it cant feed off of metal. Everyone cheers and Joey has a plan as he's going to attack the eggs. Gearfried does. Joey makes fun of Weevil now as the eggs are defenseless. Weevil plays soldier ant and makes ten of them. Weevil then orders the Insect Queen to attack but Joey reveals his trap Grave Robber. He takes the bug spray thonger Weevil used earlier and kills the Queen. Joey orders Greafried to attack the egg ending the duel.
    Weevil begs for mercy so he doesnt have to give up his 2 locator cards and the Insect Queen. Joey refuses and taks the cards.
    At the hospital Kenta tells Serenity that he wont run any more and he'll get his x ray.
    In the city people were watching Joey's duel on a big tv. Yugi says Joey has gotten better and won with out his Red Eyes. Near Yugi is the weird mime guy and he tells Yugi to watch out cause he's coming.

    65. Mime Control (1)

    Having defeated Weevil's powerful Insect Army, Joeyis still psyched from the win, however Tristan is confused as to why Joey took Weevil's Insect Queen when he could have chosen the more powerful Ultimate Great Moth. However as Joey explains that he didn't take the Moth because he doesn't have the Larvae Moth or the Cocoon of Evolution, Tea suggests that he took pity on Weevil and couldn't bear to take his most prized monster.

    As Joey tries to convince Tea that this isn't the case, Solomon explains that such actions are what have made Joey a true duellist who might even be able to beat Yugi one day. Flattered by the remark, Joey decides to find another opponent while he is still excited from his last victory, but, as the gag head off, Tea is worried about how Yugi is doing, not realising that she and the others are being tracked by one of the members of GURUS.

    Elsewhere, Marik Ishtar is on his way to Domino by boat and is contemplating his upcoming duel with Yami. Although Marik did not wish for Yugi to get involved in the conflict, since their conversation when Marik took control of Pandora it has become clear that Yugi will not stand by and let his partner be defeated. As a member of GURUS comes up from below deck, he suggests that the time has come for Marik to take control of hip puppet and begin the duel with Yugi.

    Somewhere in Domino, a Mime Artist is perched unmoving on a park bench with people gathered around him out of fascination. However as passers by try to get the mime to move, they do not realise that he is Strings, the puppet that Marik intends to use to duel Yami. As Marik takes control of its body, the Mime Artist runs off in search of its prey.

    Unaware of the events going on around them, Yugi and Yami are talking by the side of the river. Yugi tells Yami that if it wasn't for him, yugi would have never made all the friends that he has, but Yami claims that this isn't true and that Yugi would have made friends anyway. However as the two continue to talk, Yami senses Strings coming and before the two know what is happening Strings has leapt over the bridge and landed in front of them.

    As Yugi realises that Marik must be controlling the puppet, Marik is surprised that Yugi still remembers him after their previous meeting. However as goes on to explain that he is in complete control of String' body, Yami is furious that Marik is abusing his Millennium Item and challenges him to duel. Marik is pleased to be finally duelling the pharaoh, but warns him that the puppet has been ordered to kill him when he is defeated. Unphased, Yami is persistent to start the duel, even when Yugi warns him that Strings has one of the God Cards in his possession.

    Over at the museum, Ishizu senses that the duel is about to begin, and worries that she could have done more to try and stop Marik before things got this bad. Meanwhile, Yami Bakura's Millennium Ring has drawn him to the museum and to ishizu's Millennium Necklace, however while he is unsuccessful in tracking down Ishizu's item, he is intrigued to find the tablets describing the ancient battle between Yugi and Kaiba.

    As the duel between Yugi and Marik begins, Marik sets one card and then summons Universal Mud in attack mode. Surprised that Marik has played such a weak monster, Yugi is sure that his set card must be a trap and decides to do the same, setting one card before summoning Gazelle, King of Mythical Beasts. However as Yugi ends his turn without attacking, Marik accuses his cautiousness as nothing more than cowardice and, playing the Dorek Worm, Marik also plays Polymerisation to fuse his two monsters together..

    As the Humanoid Dorek appears, Yugi is confident that he can find a way to defeat the monster before it can attack on Marik's next turn. Revealing that his set card was not a trap card but actually the Rapid Attack card, Marik uses the card's effect to allow his fused monster to attack, however Yami reveals his own trap card, Fusion Cancel, separating Marik's Humanoid Drake back into its two separate monsters.

    Yugi explains that he had realised Marik's plan when he played Universal Mud, a card known for its use in fusions, and had worked out how to combat it. Pleased to see what kind of a player Yugi really is, Marik warns Yugi that although he has depth to his skill levels he can still be defeated. But as Yugi summons Beta the Magnet Warrior, both of his monsters attack, destroying both the monsters on Marik's side of the field and reducing Marik's LP to 3000.

    Although Yugi is confident that he is turning the tables, Marik is still sure that victory will be his. As he plays Revive Slime, Marik also plays the Slime Bearer, a machine which produces a Slime Token (500/0) every turn. Realising that Marik plans to use the Slime Tokens as a tribute to summon Slifer the Sky Dragon, Yami sacrifices both of his monsters to summon Buster Blader and attacks the Revive Slime. However while the Slime is destroyed temporarily, it immediately regenerates and Marik's life points are untouched.

    As the first Slime Token is generated, Marik sets a card and warns Yugi that in three turns time he will be done for. However Yugi is confident that he can win by defeating Marik's Slime Tokens and warns Marik that he can win in just two turns. However as Buster Blader prepares to attack the Slime Token, Marik reveals his set card, Defend Slime, allowing his Revive Slime to block the Blader's attack.

    Explaining that he had already covered the weakness of the Slime Tokens, Marik uses Slime Bearer to generate another Slime Token, leaving only one more left before he can summon the God card. However in order to stop Yugi from interfering any further, Marik also plays the Nightmare Fence, trapping Yugi and his monsters within an impenetrable cage.

    With only one turn left until Marik summons Slifer the Sky Dragon, it looks like there is nothing that Yugi can do as long as the Nightmare Fence is on the field. But even against the awesome power of a God card, Yami isn't prepared to give up just yet.

    66. Mime Control (2)

    With Yugi trapped within the Nightmare Cage for two turns, there is nothing he can do to prevent Marik from summoning Slifer the Sky Dragon, especially as Yugi is sure that marik already has it in his hand ready to summon it on his next turn. But as the duellist frantically seeks a way out of the situation, KaibaCorp's computers are still scanning all of the Duel Disk systems for any signs of the God cards, and although their attempts have proven fruitless so far, they do not realise how soon that will change.

    Having just been informed that there is still no sign of Slifer or Ra, Kaiba is surprisingly happy, knowing that the two remaining Gods will turn up eventually as the Rare Hunters have already taken his bait by taking part in the tournament. Back at the duel, Marik is confident that he will be victorious now that he is about to summon Slifer the Sky Dragon, but Yugi refuses to give up as he won't let his friends down, especially Joey who is counting on a rematch to try and win back his Red-Eyes.

    However there is nothing that Yugi can do and as Marik's next turn begins he summons a third Slime Token and prepares to offer all three in order to summon Slifer onto the field. As the summoning of the God card begins, the sky clouds over, thunder begins to rumble and streaks of lightning streak down through the sky. As one of the bolts strikes the Slime Bearer it shatters into tiny fragments, some of which begin to gather in a cloud of light.

    Shooting upwards through the clouds, the stream of light opens up into a vortex and the massive Sky Dragon emerges. Amazed at the power of the God card, Yugi is so overwhelmed by it's power that he is unable to move, even within the Nightmare Cage. Marik explains to Yugi that Slifer's stats are set by the number of cards in his hand and as Marik has two cards in his hand, Slifer's stats are currently 2000/2000. However as Marik plays the Pot of Greed, he draws two more cards increasing Slifer's stats to 3000/3000.

    Although this power makes Slifer stronger than any card in his deck, Yugi seeks some consolation in the fact that the most cards Marik can have in his hand is 6, meaning that Slifer's stats cannot rise higher than 6000/6000. However little does he realise that Marik has a way to get around this if the need arises.

    With his Buster Blader's own stats also raised by 500 points because of the presence of a Dragon on the field, Yugi could defeat Slifer if he was able to attack this turn, however with the effect of the Cage still active he sets two cards and then summons Kuriboh into Defence Position. As Yugi's turn ends, the Nightmare Fence crumbles, leaving Yugi open to attack, and as Marik draws another card, Slifer's stats increase to 4000/4000, making him more powerful than Yugi's Blader.

    However as the God prepares to attack, Yugi reveals his Lightforce Sword, using it to remove one of the cards from Marik's hand for three turns. With Slifer's stats reduced to 3000/3000 once more, Yugi is sure that his Buster Blader will be able to destroy it, but as the monster attacks the damage is blocked by the Revive Slime. And as Marik reveals his Eternal Magic card, he explains that it allows him to draw three cards every time his Slime regenerates. Drawing the three cards, Slifer's stats rise to a massive 5000/5000.

    Back in Domino Town, Joey and the others are exhausted after their search for another opponent for Joey and while Tristan can't see why Joey won't duel anybody that they have met so far, Joey explains that he is looking for somebody stronger than he is in order to become a better duellist ready for his rematch with Yugi. Although impressed with Joey's sense of honour, Solomon explains that he will need to duel somebody eventually if not he will never get the last two Locator cards he needs to enter the finals.

    As the gang prepares to head off in search of a duellist who Joey is willing to duel, Kaiba arrives and begins quizzing Joey as to why he is wearing a Duel Disk when he is only a Level 2 duellist. Furious at Kaiba's remarks, Joey challenges Kaiba to duel him right then and there, but as an amused Kaiba prepares to accept the duel a helicopter arrives, informing him that one of the God cards has been picked up on the tracking systems.

    As Kaiba climbs into the chopper, he is furious to learn that Yugi is the opponent to the Rare Hunter using Slifer the Sky Dragon, not wanting Yugi's defeat to be delivered by anybody other than himself, and as Yugi's Buster Blader is destroyed by Slifer, reducing his LP to 2100, it looks like Kaiba's rival may be done for before he even arrives. However never one to give up, Yugi puts all his trust in his deck and as he draws the Magical Cylinder he believes that he may have found a way to defet the God card.

    However as Yugi tributes Kuriboh to summon the Dark Magician Girl, Slifer's second moth opens, firing a blast at the apprentice magician. Marik explains that whenever a monster is summoned, Slifer will attack that monster with 2000 points worth of damage, and for that Dark Magician Girl that will be fatal as she only has 1700 ATK points. However as Yugi flips one of his set cards, the Magical Hats, his Magician is safely hidden under the hats as Slifer attacks the wrong hat.

    Determined to never give in, Yugi sets two cards into the Hats and ends his turn. As Marik's turn begins, he draws another card increasing his hand to 6 cards, the maximum that a duellist can have at any one time. However as he plays the Limitless Hand card, he explains that this card allows him to have as many cards as he wants in his hand. To make things even worse, as Marik orders Slifer to attack Yugi realises that Marik has chosen the right hat.

    But as the blast destroys the hat, Yugi reveals that the two cards he set were also placed into that hat; the Magical Cylinder and the Spellbinding Circle. With Slifer paralysed, and his ATK reduced to 4300, the Magical Cylinder reflects the attack back at the God, but once again the blast is deflected by the Revive Slime and Marik draws three more cards.

    Drawing another card as his turn begins, the Spellbinding Circle fades and Slifer's ATK increases to an immense 9000. As the God tears through Yugi's Magician Girl, destroying er with ease, Yugi falls to his knees, exhausted and unable to see any way of winning the duel. However as he prepares to throw in the towel, Kaiba calls out to him not to give up, determined that nobody will beat Yugi until Kaiba takes his revenge first. But even with the support of his rival, is there really anything that Yugi can do to beat one of the three God cards?

    67. Mime Control (3)

    The episode starts out with Kaiba saying that Yugi should be able to beat Slifer the Sky Dragon.

    Yami Yugi has see that Slifer's attack power is too high. Yami Yugi then plays Big Shield Ganard in defense mode and puts one card faced down, doing that will activate Slifer's second effect, it's second mouth opens and shoots Ganard, now he has only 400 defense points left. Now Slifer simply destroys Ganard. Suddenly, Kaiba concoct up a plan that Slifer CAN be defeated but he wonders if Yugi knows that. Marik then draws another card and Slifer just grows stronger. Then Mokuba said to Seto that Slifer has 3 time sthe power of his Blue Eyes White Dragon.

    Now Yami Yugi plays Monster Reborn to reborn......Buster Blader and puts another card faced down, his attack power is 3100 since Slife is on the field. Now Yami Yugi orders Buster Blader to attack Slifer; Mokuba thought Yugi is crazy since how can a Buster Blader with 3100 attack power defeat Slifer while he has over 10,000 attack points. But again, the Revive Jam blocks Buster Blader's attack and Marik draws 3 cards again.

    Now Slifer's second effect activates again, draining Buster Blader's attack points to 1100. Marik then informs Yami Yugi that Slifer cannot be control since he is too powerful and magic cards are ineffective when it's played against Slifer. Kaiba thinks that Yugi might have figure out how to defeat Slifer. Now when Slifer is about to attack Buster Blader again, doing that activates Brain Control, Yami Yugi's faced down card, now Marik again tells Yami that he CAN'T control Slifer but Yami Yugi claims that he is not going to control Slifer but the Revival Jam. Yami Yugi controlling Revival Jam will activate Slifer's second effect, now Slifer attacks Revival Jam and he reforms and since he is Marik's monster, he draws 3 cards, then when Revival Jam refors, Slifer just keeps attacking it, Marik realized he can't control his OWN Egyptian God card and the process keeps going of Slifer attacking Revival Jam and he reforms then Marik ran out of cards to draw. Mokuba then claims Yugi the winner of this duel then he went to pick up the God card, Mokuba wishes he can't keep Slifer but Yugi won it, so it is Yugi's. Mokuba also gives him the Locator Card.

    Then Kaiba walks towards Yugi and congratulate him BUT now him and Yugi is gonna duel. Yugi accepts but then Strings started talking, well actually Marik, he said that it doesn't matter if he has lost one god card because he has another one which is stronger(The Winged Dragon of Ra). He also informs Yami Yugi that he has Rare Hunters all over Battle City and his next brainwashed victim will be one of Yugi's friends. Yami Yugi then threatens Marik to leave his friends alone because they never done anything to Marik and if Marik has a score to settle; settle it with him, Yami. Now Marik arrives to Battle City and cruises through it with his motorcycle. Yami Yugi then runs off so that he can get to his friends before Marik does. But when he runs off, Kaiba told him to STOP! They are going to duel right now; but Yami Yugi says that he has to go saved his friends; the safety of his friends are more important than dueling.

    Then Yami yugi runs off and Mokuba said Good Luck; while Kaiba said that you can't turn down a challenge!

  • 73. Double Duel (4)

    Yami and Kaiba are barely hanging on as Yami's life points dip to 1500 and Mask of Light and Darkness have summoned a monster with 3200 attack points!

    Mask of Light contemplates what he should do. Destroy the Blue Eyes on Kaiba's side, destroying their last hope of winning, or simply put Yami out of his misery right then.

    Kaiba manages to persuade them to attack the Blue Eyes rather than Yami and on Yami's turn, he summon Magnet Valkon with an attack power of 3800.

    Kaiba tells yami to attack imeadiatly, still soar about having to sacrifice his dragon. Yami isn't sure, as he suspects the monster has a special effect.

    He tells Kaiba that he should calm down for a minute and think clearly. That anger and revenge are the causes of defeat.

    Kaiba doesn't understand what Yami is trying to say, as he always believed revenge and anger were what a duel was all about. He thinks for a moment and then tells Yami to attack.

    Magnet Valkon destroys their monster, but it leaves behind a mask which is equiped to Magnet Valkon. Magnet Valkon then becomes their creature.

    As Mask of Darkness takes his turn, he plays a card allowing him to control the Magnet Valkon. But as he does that, Yami activates de-fusion, which seperates Magnet Valkon into the three magnet warriors, and the mask disappears.

    Kaiba then activates cross-sacrifice, sacrificing their three magnet warriors to summon Obelisk. He then attacks, and reduces Mask of Darkness's life points to zero.

    The bomb goes off, but the mask of darkness activates a parachute and lands unharmed.

    Yami offers Mask of Light the chance to surrender, but Malik takes over him and tells Yami that Joey and Tea have become his prisoners.

    Kaiba demands to know where his brother is, as they won the duel, but Malik just laughs. A few minutes later, however, Kaiba's helecopter flies over to the roof and Mokuba jumps out.

    He tells Yami and Kaiba how Tea helped him escape, but when he went back to help her, she was gone. Kaiba tells Yami to get in the helecopter so they can help find Tea, but he tells Yami he's only doing this to repay Tea for helping Mokuba.

    The three get in the helecopter, but will they be able to find Joey and Tea before it's too late?

    As Yugi and Joey continue their Death-Duel, Triston is taking Serenity to watch Joey duel, unaware that he is currently possessed and fighting to the death with his best friend.

    Triston tries to call Tea, but her phone rings busy, as it's still sitting smashed on the side walk from the encounter with the Rare Hunters. So Triston decides that they'll just have to walk around town and find them.

    Back at the duel, Yugi has agreed to take over and try to get Joey to take control, and manages to draw the red eyes Black Dragon. Hoping to get Joey to start remembering, he plays exchange.

    Joey comes over to take one of Yugi's cards and sees the Red Eyes. Malik insists Joey take it, but as he reaches for it, he finds he cannot take it from Yugi's hand.

    He pulls a card out, and Yugi is relieved to see it wasn't the Red Eyes. It was only card destruction. Malik covers up for this by claiming he didn't need a monster but is shocked Joey didn't follow his orders.

    Yugi is pleased, however, because Joey hadn't forgotten his promise back when Yugi won the Red Eyes. Yugi plays the Red Eyes Black Dragon, but it is soon weakened by Joey's Rocket Warrior.

    Meanwhile, Triston and Serenity are ambushed by a group of Rare Hunters and they run to an alley where they are cornered. Triston tries to fight, but can't leave Serenity alone.

    77. Friends 'Til the End (3)

    As Yugi returns to his side of the duelling arena, he hopes that the Millenium Puzzle will help Joey break free from Marik's control, however with only 21 minutes left until the anchor drops he hopes that they won't run out of time before that is able to happen. With the Millennium Puzzle acting like the Red-Eyes Black Dragon, a sign of Yugi and Joey's friendship, Yugi is sure that Joey can break free as Marik is not able to control his heart, however as he appeals to Joey to break free Marik contacts Joey mentally, instructing him to destroy Yugi.

    Determined to destroy Yugi, Marik informs Joey to throw the Millennium Puzzle into the sea where it will remain until Yugi has been destroyed, however as Joey removes the central piece from the Puzzle and prepares to throw it into the sea, he remembers how he stole that same piece of the Puzzle when he first met and befriended Yugi and is unable to bring himself to do it again, knowing how much it hurt Yugi the first time.

    Although Marik is infuriated that Joey is resisting him, his mind puppet is still determined to crush Yugi and demands that Yugi makes his next move. As Yugi's turn begins and his Red-Eyes' ATK returns to 900, Yugi realises that he only has 14 minutes left to break Joey free or lose the duel. Determined that neither of them will lose, Yugi sets two cards before summoning Beta the Magnet Warrior (1700/1600) to the field.

    As Yugi ends his turn without attacking, Marik hopes that Yugi is giving in and, as Joey draws his Panther Warrior, Marik sees the perfect chance to win the duel and defeat Yugi once and for all. However as Joey summons Panther Warrior (2000/1600) and Marik orders him to use it to destroy Yugi's Red-Eyes, Joey instead orders his Rocket Warrior, in its invincible mode, to attack Yugi's Magnet Warrior.

    Furious that Joey has resisted his order once again, Marik can only watch as Yugi activates his Magic-Arm Shield trap card, redirecting Joey's attack at the Panther Warrior. As the two Warriors collide, Joey's Panther's ATK is reduced by 1500 points thanks to his Attrition magic card and is then reduced by a further 500, to zero, thanks to Rocket Warrior's effect. As Yugi is sure that Joey resisted Marik's control in order to make that attack rather than attacking the Red-Eyes, Yugi is hopeful that he can still free his friend from Marik's control however Marik does not care if Joey resists as long as Yugi ends up being dragged into the sea.

    Oblivious to what is happening to their friends, Serenity, Tristan and Duke are still trying to find out where Joey and the others are but as Tristan tries to assure Serenity that Joey is alright Duke suggests that the caped creeps that attacked them may be after Jey as well. Furious that Duke is upsetting Serenity like this, Tristan decides to try and find a duellist who knows where the finals are going to be held in the hopes that he will find Joey there.

    Back at Domino Pier, Joey's Panther Warrior's ATK returns to 500 as he ends his turn, but as Yugi's turn begins he sacrifices his Magnet Warrior to summon the powerful Beast of Gilfar (2200/2500), using it to destroy Joey's Rocket Warrior (J's LP: 1700). As Yugi hopes that the attack may have freed Joey from Marik's control, he is shocked to learn that he hasn't succeeded and begins to worry that, even with Joey's Red-Eyes still on the field, Yugi might not be able to save Joey with only 10 minutes left until the end of the duel.

    Astounded that none of the duellists around know where the finals are going to be held, Tristan is jealous as he sees Duke holding Serenity's hand and immediately steps in to break the two apart. However as the three continue their search for a qualified duellist the three thugs that have been after them catch up with them and the three are forced to run away once again. As the three run out into a busy street, Tristan tells Duke to take Serenity and run while he goes back to take on the three thugs and as the two run off they are almost run over by the driver of a blue car who seems sympathetic to their plight as Serenity explains what has happened.

    With less then 10 minutes left ntil the end of the duel, Marik reminds everyone that Ta is only safe as long as nobody tries to interfere with the duel, unlike Yugi who is far from being safe. Meanwhile, back in the town, Tristan has taken out all three of the thugs and as he learns from one of them that Joey is at Domino Pier the blue car pulls up and the driver, none other than Mai Valentine, calls for Tristan to climb in.

    As Mai explains that the thugs sound like the Rare Hunters that people have been talking about, she explains that they are probably targeting Yugi and Joey in order to get their Rare Cards. However as the car continues to head towards the location of the finals, Tristan remembers what the Rare Hunter told him and calls for Mai to turn around and head for Domino Pier where Joey really is. Spinning the car in a sharp U-turn, Mai puts her foot to the floor as the car speeds off in the direction of the pier.

    Beginning to look forward to seeing Yugi defeated, Maik is pleased as Joey draws Skull Dice, realising that it could come in handy if he decides to defeat Yugi by eliminating his Life Points. However even with only 8 minutes remaining on the timer Yugi is still hopeful that he can free Joey from Marik's control and as he calls out to his friend to remember how he entered Duellist Kingdom to help his sister, Joey starts to recall supporting his sister at the hospital and the promise he made later on to help Yugi crush Marik and the Rare Hunters.

    Even so, Marik's control seems as strong as ever as Joey sets two cards and calls for Yugi to attack him. As Yugi begs for Joey to try and break free of Marik's control, he sets one card before ordering his Beast of Gilfar to attack Joey's Panther Warrior. Glad that Yugi has fallen into his trap, Joey flips his two set cards, Skull Dice and Graceful Dice, however as he prepares to make his dice rolls Yugi activates De-Spell, destroying Joey's Graceful Dice.

    As the Skull Dice rolls a 2, the Beast of Gilfar's ATK is halved to 1100 however it is still enough to elminate Joey's Panther Warrior (J's LP: 1100). Meanwhile, Mai and the others have arrived at the pier and as they turn a corner they are surprised to see what looks like a duel going on. With only five minutes left on the timer, it looks like it is too late for Yugi as the four arrive and ask what is going on. Mokuba explains everything that has happened so far and Serenity, hearing that her brother is in trouble, goes to take her bandages off.

    Unable to bear Serenity's first sight of Joey being one of him under Marik's control, Ta calls for Serenity not to take off her bandages yet however Joey's little sister is still worried, even as Mai tries to reassure her that everything will be alright. With such a large crowd now gathered to watch the duel, Marik decides that it is only fair to let them see Yugi defeated in a duel, and as Joey draws his next card, Meteor of Destruction, Marik is confident that his next move will finish Yugi once and for all.

    78. Friends 'Til the End (4)

    As Joey informs Yugi that he is about to lose the duel and his life, Yugi refuses to give up, hoping that he can still free Joey from Marik's control before it is too late. However as Marik orders Joey to activate Meteor of Destruction, the gang, all watching on the sidelines, are despreately looking for a way to help Yugi and Joey without putting Ta at risk. Mokuba asks Kaiba if he can do anything and as Ta calls for them to forget about her and help the others the Rare Hunter reminds them what will happen to Ta if they do interfere.

    Although unable to do anything at the moment, Kaiba gets in touch with somebody over an intercom system connected up to his trenchcoat in the hopes that he can still save Ta and repay her for rescuing Mokuba. Meanwhile, Yugi calls out to Joey once again to try and free him from Marik's control, and, as Marik orders his mind puppet to play Meteor of Destruction, Joey begins to remember things.

    As his memories of Duellist Kingdom and Battle City begin flooding back to him, Joey remembers, once again, how he promised Yugi that he would help defeat Marik and the Rare Hunters. Sensing that the real Joey is back in control, Yugi calls out to Marik, informing him that now that he has no control over Joey he has no way to win the duel and claim Yugi's God Card and Millennium Puzzle. However as Yugi taunts Marik to try and attack, Marik uses the Millennium Rod to take full control over Joey's body, forcing him to activate Meteor of Destruction.

    As the meteor hurtles towards Yugi with the strength to eliminate the last of his Life Points, Joey successfully breaks free of Marik's control once and for all. Glad to see that his friend is back for good, Yugi activates his trap card, Mystical Ref Panel, to stall the meteor's attack while he decides who it should attack. As a confused Joey tries to work out what has been going on, Yugi explains that their friendship broke Marik's control over Joey and that now he is free again.

    While the two friends reunite briefly, a Kaibacorp helicopter arrives and, under remote control, flies towards the crane which is suspending the crate over Ta's head. As the Rare Hunter prepares to push the switch, Kaiba draws his Blue-Eyes White Dragon card and, throwing it at the Hunter, knocks the switch from his hand and then grabs him before he is able to recover. As the chopper pulls the crane into the sea, where the bomb detonates safely, the gang rush over and free Ta from the chair where she had been secured before running to help Yugi and Joey.

    However time is running short for Yugi and Joey and as Yugi explains that he won't let both of them be dragged under he tearfully asks Joey to look after the Millennium Puzzle for him as he orders Mystical Ref Panel to direct the attack at him. As the full impact of the meteor hits Yugi, wiping out the remainder of his Life Points, the force causes Yugi to collapse while Joey's box opens revealing the key that will free him.

    As Yugi bags Joey to save himself in the thirty seconds that remain before the anchor drops, Joey refuses to let his friend be dragged under and orders the Red-Eyes Black Dragon to attack him, wiping out the remainder of his Life Points as well. As Yugi's key box also opens, Serenity senses her brother's courage and removes her bandages to see the world for the first time in a long time.

    With ten seconds left on the timer, Joey drops the Millennium Puzzle to the ground and then, using the chain attached to his foot, swings across to Yugi's platform in the hopes that he can grab Yugi's key before the two are pulled under. As the timer counts down to zero, Joey wonders if he will make it and barely does before the anchor is released, dragging both Yugi and himself into the water.

    As the two are pulled deeper and deeper underwater, Joey swims over to Yugi and unlocks his chain leaving him free to float back up to the surface. However as Yugi surfaces and Tristan pulls him out, Mokuba realises that Joey never grabbed his own key before he was dragged under. As Tristan goes to get the key and dive back down to save his friend, the gang are shocked to see Serenity, key in hand, dive into the water to save her big brother. Trying, without success, to use Yugi's key to unlock his own chain, Joey can't believe it as he sees somebody swimming down to save him, and as Serenity arrives and unlocks his chain he can hardly believe that his sister is here until she explains how Tristan and Mai brought her to find him.

    As Yugi and Joey are glad that they are both safe, Joey is embarrased at how he let himself be controlled by Marik and even as Yugi tells him that it wasn't his fault he is still upset by what he did under Marik's control. However as Mai tells him that he shouldn't be embarrased after the courage he showed Joey explains that he was hardly the big brother that he wanted to be for Serenity but Tristan reminds him that it was his courage and strength that gave Serenity the courage to go through with the operation.

    Realising that Serenity is able to see again, Joey is less upset, especially as she tells him that he has been her inspiration to keep on going and that the two of them will support each other no matter what happens. With brother and sister reunited at last, Joey returns the Millennium Puzzle to Yugi and thanks him for being such a good friend and Yugi in turn thanks Yami for letting him duel on his own.

    Tired of all the talking that is going on, Kaiba heads off for the Battle City final and as he does so Yugi calls and thanks him for his help. Not one to accept people's gratitude, Kaiba reminds Yugi that they still have to have their rematch and that he looks forward to it being part of the Battle City finals. However as Kaiba heads off into the distance, Yugi is sure that he hasn't yet seen the last of Marik even though the finals are about to begin.

    79. Shadow of a Duel

    Emotions are running high after their last encounter with Marik, however while Joey is psyched at having broken Marik's mind control, Yugi is sure that they haven't seen the last of their nemesis and fears that their next encounter will be face to face. With the heat of the moment behind him, Joey is thrilled to see Serenity is alright and hhas her bandages off and thanks her for saving his life. However as he tells her that she can now see him win the Battle City Finals, Mai pulls her aside and tells her that the only victory Serenity will see is Mai defeating Joey in the first round.

    Unsurprisingly annoyed by the comment, Joey reminds Mai of who was the winner last time they duelled, but Mai responds that Duellist Kingdom is ancient history now and that she is in Battle City to win. Joey is still insistent that he will win, confident that the Finals will be a piece of cake compared to what he and Yugi have been through so far. With the bickering out of their system, Joey takes out his six Locator Cards and inserts them into his Duel Disk which immediately reads the card before producing a holographic mad of the stadium where the finals will be held.

    Elsewhere in the city, Bakura is resting in the hospital as Marik enters his sleeping mind. Marik congratulates Yami Bakura of his success in helping Marik earn the trust of the group under the guise of Namu but warns his partner in crime that he will only give up the Millennium Rod if Bakura keeps up the other end of the bargain and claims the two remaining Egyptian God Cards from Yugi and Kaiba. Marik warns Bakura that he will need a spot in the Finals if he wants any chance of getting the God Cards and that there are only a few spots remaining in the final rounds.

    As Yami Bakura becomes increasingly frustrated by Marik telling him what to do, he senses that Solomon is trying to wake Bakura up and takes control of the body, waking it. Solomon excitedly tells Bakura that Yugi and Joey have both qualified for the finals but when Bakura asks where the location of the finals is Solomon realises he forgot to ask in all the excitement. Infuriated that he will have to find the finals on his own, Bakura gets out of the hospital bed and, as Solomon tells him that he needs to rest, Yami Bakura uses the power of the Millennium Ring to put Solomon to sleep before heading out into Domino to find the location of the finals.

    Finding a guy with a Duel Disk in the street, Yami Bakura steals his Locator Card and Duel Disk but throws his deck back at him, disgusted by his weak deck. Realising that he will have to earn five more Locator Cards some how, Bakura hears some people talking about how there are already six people qualified for the finals already and demands to know where he can find Battle City duellists. The group are annoyed by his direct approach, but as he threatens them they tell him that there have been reports of duellists hanging around the cemetery.

    As another duellist arrives at the deserted cemetery he is frightened by the eerie atmosphere, especially as a trio of zombies rise from the ground and surround him, demanding that he give up his Duel Disk and leave. Terrified by the trio, the duellist does as he has been told and runs off, leaving his Disk behind. However as he leaves the sight of the tree zombies, they remove their masks to reveal that they are actually Bandit Keith's lackeys from Duellist Kingdom; Bonz, Syd and Zygore.

    Celebrating the acquisition of their fifth Locator Card the gang are pleased to have done so well without having to participate in a single duel. As they tell themselves that they deserve to get into the Battle City Finals after having their Star Chips stolen by Bandit Keith at Duellist Kingdom, they hear somebody else approaching and prepare to attack. As Bakura approaches the trio attack but he dodges and unmasks all of them, challenging them to a duel. Bonz is confident that he can win one legitimate duel but Zygore warns him that Bakura seems familiar from somewhere.

    As the two prepare to begin the duel, Bakura suggests that Bonz puts all five of his Locator Cards at stake and while Bonz is initially apprehensive he agrees when Bakura explains that time is running out and that if neither of them qualifies this evening then it is likely that neither of them will qualify before all the slots in the finals are filled. Sure that Bakura can't be very good, seeing as he only has one Locator Card after so long, Bonz accepts to the duel, however as the duel begins the arena becomes shrouded in a purple fog.

    Preparing to take his first turn, Bakura informs the trio that the cemetery is haunted by a knight who lost his head, and as he summons The Headless Knight (1450/1700) and sets one card Bonz is freaked by the monster. Even so, he wastes no time in summoning Snakehair the Sorceress (1500/1200), attacking and destroying Yami Bakura's Knight (YB's LP: 3950). Although his monster has been destroyed, Bakura is not fazed as he flips Shallow Grave, reviving his Knight from the graveyard in Defence Mode before sacrificing it to summon the Earl of Demise (2000/?).

    Destroying Bonz's Sorceress (B's LP: 3500) Bakura is confident that he will easily win the duel, however Bonz is also confident of his skills as he summons Dragon Zombie (1600/0) before playing Premature Burial at a cost of 700 Life Points (B's LP: 2700) to revive his Sorceress. With his two zombies on the field, Bonz activates Polymerization, fusing his two monsters to form the Great Mammoth of Goldvine (2200/?) before setting one card.

    As Yami Bakura draws his next card, Bonz activates his trap card, Skull Invitation, a card which deals 300 Life Points of damage to any player whhen one of their cards is sent to the Graveyard. Deciding to help Bonz with his strategy, Bakura discards all five cards in his hand at a cost of 1500 Life Points (YB's LP: 2750) however while the move pleases Bonz it pleases Yami Bakura more as he reveals his Magic card, Spiritualistic Medium. Explaining that the card increases the ATK of one of his monsters by 500 for every card he has discarded from his hand, Bakura uses the power to increase his Earl's ATK to 4000 before destroying Bonz's Mammoth (B's LP: 900).

    As if the attack was not enough, the destruction of his Mammoth activates the effect of Skull Invitation (B's LP: 600). Confident that victory will soon be his, Yami Bakura informs his opponents that they will soon be trapped in the Shadow Realm with the other lost souls in the cemetery. Worried by the prospect of an eternity spent in the Shadow Realm, Syd tries to escape from the cemetery but finds himself back at the duel from the other side of the cemetery. As Bakura explains that the only way to escape is to beat him in a duel, Bonz plays Nightmare Steel Cage in the hopes to give himself two turns to find a way to win, setting a card to help him in his plan.

    Amused at the futile attempt to stop him, Bakura takes great pleasure in playing Ectoplasmer, turning his Earl of Demise into a spirit able to attack Bonz's Life Points directly, reducing them to zero and winning Bakura the match. Having lost the Shadow Game, the trio are sucked into the ground as Bakura claims their Locator Card. With six now in his possession he prepares to enter the Battle City Finals in order to keep his deal with Marik and claim the Millennium Rod for his own.



    NOTE: As with the first season, while the US second season ended with this episode, the UK and Canada's second season ran until episode 97.

    Season 3

    80. Lights, Camera, Duel

    On the way to the location of the Battle City finals, Mai stops the car two blocks away from the stadium and tells the gang that they'll walk the rest of the way so that when the finals are over they won't get caught in traffic when all the crowds leave. As Joey becomes excited about the prospect of meeting the other finalists, he teases Mai about their results at Duellist Kingdom, however she is sure that she will be victorious this time, showing off her skills in front of a sold-out crowd.

    Quickly changing the subject, Joey asks Mai why she gave him her Tournament Entry Card, Glory of the King's Hand, at Duellist Kingdom and she tells him that she was touched by his story and wanted to help. However as Mai tries to justify her actions, Joey has been distracted by a poster for Jean-Claude Magnum's latest ninja movie and is no longer listening to what Mai is saying. Infuriated by Joey's short attention span, Mai prepares to confront him as a white limousine bursts through the poster in front of Mai and Joey.

    Startled by the limo, Mai grabs Joey for support but then backs away embarassed as Joey prepares to confront the owner of the limo, however as the door opens and the passenger gets out, he is thrilled to see that it is none other than Jean-Claude, the same guy from the poster. As Joey introduces himself as Jean-Claude's number one fan, the movie star is only interested in Ma, however while he appears to know Mai she does not recognise him. Joey can't believe that Mai knows Jean-Claude however as she insists that she doesn't know him Magnum reminds her of their encounter one year previously.

    Somewhere at sea, on a cruise ship, a duel between Mai and Magnum comes to a close as Mai uses her Harpie Lady combo to win the match. Stunned by such a powerful opponent, Magnum is infatuated with Mai and proposes to her, wishing to spend the rest of his life with her. Amused by the request, Mai shuns Magnum's proposal but jokingly offers that she will marry him if he can ever beat her in a duel.

    As Mai realises that Magnum did not sense that she was joking when she made the offer, Joey suggests that she should accept the proposal as she is unlikely to ever find a better one. Although she doesn't want to marry Jean-Claude, Mai agrees to the duel in order to teach her suitor a lesson, however Yugi tells her that she doesn't have to duel if she doesn't want to. As Duke warns his friends not to anger Jean-Claude in case he pulls any of his kung-fu moves on them, Ta is sure that Mai will beat Magnum without any problems.

    Ready to start the duel, Mai calls for Joey to lend his Duel Disk to Magnum however he reveals that he already has a Disk, as well as five Locator Cards. Realising that Magnum intends this to be an official Battle City duel, Mai knows that losing the duel will mean losing her place in the finals however she refuses to pull out of the duel, determined to teach her arrogant opponent a lesson.

    While Yugi is shocked that Mai has agreed to the terms of the duel, it is too late for Mai to pull out as Magnum summons a monster, Ninja Commander Akousa (700/700), a monster which, when summonned, calls Ninja Soldier Katana (400/400) to the field. Not worried by Magnum's multiplicity combo, Mai summons Amazon Swordswoman (1500/1600) and easily crushes Jean-Claude Magnum's Ninja Soldier (JC's LP: 2900).

    As Mai accuses Jean-Claude of duelling like an amateur, he smugly responds that Mai is agressive as ever as he summons another Ninja Commander Akousa (700/700), using its special effect once again to summon a second Ninja Soldier Katana (400/400). Impressed by Mai's skills so far, Serenity tells Joey that she thinks that Mai is really cool, however joey disagrees beliving Mai is too full of herself. Angered by the comment, Mai orders her Swordswoman to attack, destroying the second Ninja Commander (JC's LP: 2100).

    Confident that victory will soon be hers, Mai is concerned as Magnum explains that she has fallen into his trap and now that he has two ninjas in his graveyard he need only sacrifice one of his Ninja Soldiers to summon his most powerful ninja, Ninja Master Shogun (1600/1600). Unimpressed with his new ninja, Mai discovers that it packs more of a punch than the others, with the ability to not only summon another Ninja Soldier Katana (400/400) but also Ninja Commando Kibouki (700/700). Not only that, but Magnum's Ninja Commando allows him to summonn Kounoichiyayami the Ninja Girl (300/300).

    With so many ninjas on the other side of the field, Mai is naturally concerned as the Ninja Master destroys her Swordswomam before the other four ninjas attack her Life Points directly (M's LP: 1800). As Jean-Claude is confident that he is about to win the duel, and Yugi and the others worry that Mai may not be able to turn things around, Magnum sets one card and then ends his turn.

    Summoning Cyber Harpie(1800/1300) to the field, Mai orders it to attack Magnum's Ninja Master however he activates his Ninja Smoke Ball trap card blocking the attack. Although infuriated that her attack was blocked, Mai isn't disheartened as she sets a card and ends her turn. Amused at Mai's attempt to defeat him, Magnum plays the Great Kite of Ninja, lifting his Ninja Master high into the air, safe from all attacks and Magic cards.

    As if being protected from attacks was not bad enough, Magnum explains that he can sacrifice one monster in order to allow his Ninja Master to attack Mai's Life Points directly. Tributing his Ninja Soldier, Magnum uses the power of his Kite to attack Mai directly (M's LP: 200). Down but not out, Mai refuses to give up and as Joey asks Yugi if there is any way that Mai could win, his friend suggests that Mai could eliminate Magnum's Kite is she could play Harpie's Feather Duster.

    Calling out to Mai to ask if she has the Feather Duster in her hand, Mai snaps back that she would have already used it if she did have it. However as Yugi suggests that she could also stop Magnum from attacking her directly if she could eliminate all of his ninjas, Mai sees a way to stop Magnum in his tracks as she draws and activates Elegant Egotist. As her one Cyber Harpie is transformed into three Mai attacks and destroys all three of his Ninjas.

    As Magnum becomes furious that Mai coould be turning the tables once again, Joey informs the movie star that he is no longer impressed with his skills as an actor or his personality as a person. However as Mai sets a card and ends her turn, Magnumm summons another Ninja Girl (300/300) only to discover that Mai had prepared for the move as she activates her Grave Arm magic card to destroy the Ninja Girl.

    Unable to attack directly with no ninjas left on his side of the field Magnum has to end his turn, and as Mai begins her turn she gladly informs Magnum that his Ninja Kite prevents his monster from defending as well as being attacked. As her trio of Cyber Harpies attacks Magnum, Mai eliminates the rest of his life points winning her the match.

    As the monsters disappear from the field, Magnum is surprisingly unconcerned at having lost the duel as he points out that his Ninja Master and Ninja Kite have not disappeared from the field as they were not holograms. As the Ninja Master swoops down and scoops Mai up in a net Magnum explains that he is determined to have Mai one way or another. As the Ninja flies off with his catch, Joey runs after Magnum who is chasing after Mai.

    Determined not to remain captured, Mai struggles to get free and the Ninja Master drops her and she has to grab on to a pole sticking out the side of a building to prevent hurting herself in the fall. As Magnum panics about what to do, Joey offers to catch Mai but as she lets go she ends up landing on top of him. Approaching Mai to try and help her up, Magnum is shunned by Mai once again as she accuses him of being nothing more than a cheap phoney and a poor actor.

    Getting to her feet on her own, Mai tells Jean-Claude that the only hero here is Joey and as she thanks her duelling rival for helping her she informs him that she didn't want to marry Magnum because she wants to beat Joey in the finals. With what will hopefully be their final distraction now out of the way, the gang heads on towards the stadium where the finals will be held ready to see what Kaiba has in store for them.



    81. Let the Finals Begin!

    As Copter 1 lands in the centre of the open-top, empty, Kaibacorp Stadium and Kaiba and Mokuba disembark, Kaiba looks forward to the arrival of the seven other Battle City finalists, however he does not realises that Marik and Odion have already arrived and are talking in the empty stands. Marik informs Odion that his plan to claim the pharaoh's power is coming together and that once he claims the Millennium Puzzle and the two remaining Egyptian God Cards he will be able to drain Yami's power and banish him to the Shadow Realm forever.

    However while things are coming together it is important that nobody knows Marik's true identity and so he orders Odion to pretend to be the real Marik while he uses the guise of Namu to get close to Yugi and his friends. As the two continue to discuss their plans, Kaiba senses that somebody is in the stadium and orders the lights to be turned on however as the stadium is filled with light there is nobody to be seen.

    Before Kaiba has a chance to look into things further, Yugi, Mai, Joey and the others arrive however they are all confused to see the stadium empty and barely constructed. Even so, the trio of finalists present their Locator Cards and are given Tournament ID cards which will gain them access to the finals. As the gang asks where the other finalists are they are informed that so far only Seto Kaiba and themselves have arrived.

    As the group await the arrival of the next finalists, wind begins to howl through the stadium as the next entrant arrives. Although Yugi is suspicious of the new arrival, as well he should be, Joey and Ta are both surprised to see their friend Namu who helped them out when Bakura was injured. While Namu asks how Bakura is doing, Joey is somehow creeped out by him however as Ta introduces Namu to Yugi Joey starts to calm down as they explain how Namu found Bakura after he had been attacked.

    As Namu announces that he is honoured to be meeting the great Yugi Moto, Marik is pleased that nobody has worked out who he really is. However before any of them can get talking Bakura staggers into the stadium, clearly still weak from the injury he suffered. As the gang questions how Bakura found them Yugi spots that Bakura is wearing a Duel Disk and everyone is stunned as their friend reveals that he is the sixth finalist. While Yugi is suspicious that this may not be their friend, Bakura distracts them by pointing out that the next finalist is arriving.

    Shrouded in a dark robe, the tattoo-faced finalist enters the arena and as Joey recognises him from his encounter when he was captured they realises that this must be Marik, leader of the Rare Hunters. As the robed figure introduces himself as one and the same Kaiba warns Marik that he could have him disqualified for hacking his way into the tournament however he won't do that because he wants to defeat Marik and claim his Egyptian God Card.

    Now that seven of the finalists have gathered, the tournament officials announce that although the Locator Cards lead the duellists to this location, it is not actually where the finals will be held. As everyone wonders what they could mean by this, the stadium lights are angled upwards as a large blimp, Kaiba Craft 3, lands in the center of the stadium. While the finalists look on in amazement Mokuba explains that the finals will be held 4000 feet in the sky.

    As a door onto the blimp opens, the finalists begin to board and are informed that the ship will take off as soon as the eighth finalist arrives. However while Yugi wonders who the eighth finalist will be Ta. Tristan, Duke and Serenity are blocked from boarding as none of them are qualified for the tournament. As the four friends plead to be let onto the ship, Maokuba tells the officials to let them on, pointing out that he isn't qualified either and yet he will be boarding.

    With everybody else on board, Kaiba informs the officials to take off even though the last finalist has not arrived, however as they wonder whether they should wait or follow his order the last entrant, Ishizu Ishtar, arrives and Kaiba Craft 3 takes off into the skies. As the blimp reaches the crusing altitude of 4000 feet, the gang are amazed by the view of Domino from so high up, however as Serenity thanks Joey for bringing her Joey is distracted by Kaiba who insists that Joey qualified through luck not skill. While Joey is left reeling from Kaiba's remarks, Kaiba tells Yugi that he must use his God card in the finals as Kaiba claims to win it when he defeats him in a duel.

    As the finalists are asked to go to their rooms to prepare for the first round, Serenity is impressed with Joey's room and thanks him for helping her regain her sight so that she could see all the wonderful things he has shown her so far. However as the two do some brother-sister bonding they are rudely interrupted by Ta, Tristan and Duke who are looking for a place to crash until rooms can be found for them.

    While Joey is furious that he won't be able to focus with the others around, Tristan plans to ask Serenity to look at the view with him but Duke beats him to it. Unable to get close to Serenity, Tristan apologises to Joey for bothering him, explaining that they didn't want to distract Yugi while he was preparing for the finals. Reminding Tristan that he is also supposed to be prepping for the finals, Joey goes on to thank his friend for looking after Serenity while he was duelling in Battle City.

    As Kaiba prepares his deck in his room, Mokuba sees the officials approaching his room and tells them to stop, warning them that Kaiba may well have them fired if they interrupt him while he is preparing. The officials apologise and explain that they only wanted to inform Kaiba that the eighth finalist arrived before the ship took off, however Kaiba does not look like he would be concerned by this as his only interest is destroying Yugi and Marik and claiming their Egyptian God Cards.

    Elsewhere on the ship, Mai is psyched about the finals, sure that she will do better than she did in Duellist Kingdom, while Odion is determined not to fail his master. Marik is also confident that success will be his, especially as he has control over Ta and Bakura, although his control over Bakura will not be needed as long as Yami Bakura agrees to keep up his end of their bargain.

    Yugi, meanwhile, knows that Kaiba was right and that he will have to use Slifer the Sky Dragon is he is to have any hope of winning the finals, however he fears that Slifer may be too dangerous for some opponents to handle. As Yami agrees that Slifer is their only chance of beating Marik he warns Yugi that the finals will turn into a clash of all three God cards, however Yugi is more concerned about Bakura, worried that the evil spirit that controlled him at Duellist Kingdom has somehow returned even though Tristan got rid of the Millennium Ring.

    Pointing out the the Millennium Items work in unpredicatble ways Yami agrees that he senses something different about Bakura. However neither of them know just how climatic the finals will be, unlike Ishizu who knows that everything is in place for the final clash between Yugi and Marik to begin. As all the finalists finish their preparations, an announcement comes across requesting everyone's presence in the main hall.

    Leaving his room, Joey sees Kaiba coming along the corridor and the two exchange insults before Joey and Namu meet up. While Namu tells Joey that he never thought he would make it to the finals, Joey warns him that he won't make it much further once the two of them meet on the duelling field. As the two make their way to the main hall, Yugi also sets off knowing that the fate of the world lies in his hands.



    82. The Dark Spirit Revealed: Yugi vs. Bakura (1)

    As everyone gathers in the main hall, Mai tells Yugi that she is eager to get started, confident that she will go all the way to the final round this time. However while she gets psyched about the tournament Joey is more excited by the all you can eat buffet until he bumps into Bakura and discovers that he forced Bonz into giving up all five of his Locator Cards after defeating him in a duel.

    As a freaked out Joey backs away from Bakura, hoping that he won't have to face him in a duel, he asks Kaiba what the hold up is. Kaiba explains that the eighth finalist has not yet arrived, however as he sends one of the officials off to collect her he decides to begin the proceedings anyway and as a large lottery machine appears at one end of the room the other official explains that the machine will randomly choose the pairs of duellists who will compete against each other.

    However unlike Duellist Kingdom, the second pairing will not be chosen until after the end of the first match, meaning that none of the duellists will know who they will be duelling until just before the match starts. As the duellists wait for the first two numbers to be chosen, they are all reminded of their numbers in the tournament; Kaiba (1), Joey (2), Yugi (3), Mai (4), Namu (5), Bakura (6), Marik (7), Ishizu (8).

    As the official arrives at Ishizu's room to request her presence in the main hall, she explains that her presence will not be required as her number will not be chosen, however as the official leaves Ishizu worries that the fate of the world depends on the victory of one of the two duellists who will be chosen.

    Back at the hall, the lottery machine starts up and chooses the first duellist for the opening match; Bakura. Surprised to see that he has been picked for the first duel, Bakura is eager to see who his first opponent will be and is pleased when it is Yugi's number which is drawn as his opponent. As Yugi and Bakura are lead away to the Stratos Duelling Arena the rest of the finalists are invited to make their way to the spectator platform to watch the proceedings.

    As the elevator carries Yugi and Bakura up to the top of the ship, Yugi is suspicious of Bakura , sure that he is still after the Millennium Items. Meanwhile Kaiba is eager to see how Bakura will cope against the might of Slifer the Sky Dragon, assuming that Yugi uses it in the duel. Arriving at the Stratos Arena, Yugi is determined not to lose the duel as the fate of the world is at stake, and as the other finalists arrive Kaiba informs them that the strong winds and cold temperature of the altitude are intended to test the true limits of the duellists.

    Confident that he will be the victor, Bakura asks if Yugi is ready to lose, however Yugi demands to know who is really in control of Bakura. As Yami Bakura reveals the Millennium Ring around his neck, Yugi realises that his opponent is the same opponent he fought in the Shadow Realm at Duellist Kingdom. While Tristan is shocked to see the Millennium Ring after he threw it into the woods of Duellist Kingdom, Namu and Mai do not understand what all the fuss is about until Ta and Joey explain how Bakura's Millennium Item contains an evil spirit.

    As Joey hopes that they won't end up dragged into the Shadow Realm again, Namu is amused that none of the others realise he is really Marik, but as Yugi asks Yami Bakura why he is duelling Yami Bakura suggests that he is not intent on taking the Millennium Puzzle but has his sights on something more powerful. However as Yami Bakura goes on to taunt Yugi, explaining that not everybody is who they seem on the ship, Marik contacts Yami Bakura mentally and warns him that he is giving too much information away.

    With the duel about to begin, Yugi and his friends are sure that he will win however Yami Bakura is confident that victory will, in the end, be his however as his first turn begins he summons The Portrait's Secret (1200/1500) in attack mode. As Yugi wonders what Yami Bakura could be up to he summons Gazelle, the King of Mythical Beasts (1500/1200) and destroys Bakura's monster (B's LP: 3700) before setting one card.

    Not bothered by the loss of his first monster, Bakura summons The Gross Ghost of Fled Dreams (1300/1800), once again in attack mode, and while Joey is freaked out by the creepy monster Yugi s unimpressed by such a weak card. Sensing that Bakura must be wanting him to attack, Yugi realises that his only hope is to wipe out Bakura's Life Points before he can start his strategy and, summoning Gamma the Magnet Warrior (1500/1800) orders both of his monsters to attack Bakura (B's LP: 2000).

    With half of his Life Points already gone, it looks like Bakura will be easily crushed in the next turn and as he summons The Headless Knight (1450/1700) it seems like there is no way for him to turn the tables and win the duel, especially as both of Yugi's monsters attack once again (B's LP: 450). Confident that he is about to win, Yugi doesn't realise that he has been reeled into Bakura's trap until his opponent explains that he needed three monsters in his graveyard to summon his most powerful monster.

    As Yugi realises that Bakura played him like a fool he is shocked as Bakura summons Dark Necrofear (2200/2800). As Bakura explains that Dark Necrofear possessed some very special powers he sets two cards and then ends his turn, much to the surprise of Yugi who thinks that Bakura must have been worried about his set card. Deciding to put Bakura out of his misery Yugi sacrifices his Gazelle to summon the Dark Magician Girl (2000/1700) before activating his set card, Magic Formula to increase her ATK to 2500.

    Now more powerful than Dark Necrofear, the Magician Girl attacks and destroys it (B's LP: 150) however Bakura is glad, explaining that Yugi has once again fallen into his trap. With Dark Necrofear in the graveyard, Bakura activates his Dark Sanctuary magic card and, as he does so, the arena is shrouded in a red fog filled with mysterious eyes. As Yugi looks on bewildered Bakura explains that there is no escape from defeat now that Yugi has fallen well and truly into his trap.



    83. The Dark Spirit Revealed: Yugi vs. Bakura (2)

    Having lured Yugi directly into his trap, Bakura thanks Yugi for all his help so far but his confidence seems misplaced with no monsters to defend himself and only 150 Life Points. However as Yugi's confidence grows strong Yami Bakura informs him that the evil ghost of Dark Sanctuary will protect him from any of Yugi's attacks. While Yugi is unimpressed with the threats, Bakura warns him that his naivety will get him nowhere in this duel and taunts his opponent to attack him.

    Taking the bait, Yugi orders Gamma the Magnet Warrior to attack, but as he does so the Evil Ghost counters the attack and Yugi suffers in the recoil. As Yugi wonders what has happened, Bakura explains that Yugi's Magnet Warrior has been posessed by the evil ghost. While Yugi wonders whether any of his other monsters have been posessed by the spirit as well, Bakura informs him that the Dark Sanctuary has other effects as well as the ones that Yugi has experienced so far. Bakura explains that whenever a posessed monster attacks, half of its ATK is deducted from Yugi's Life Points and added to Bakura's Life Points (Y's LP: 3250, B's LP: 900)

    Although taken aback by the attack, Yugi isn't concerned by the spirit's effect however as Bakura activates the Destiny Board things start to look grim. As Yugi wonders what the Destiny Board does, Bakura explains that the Ouija Board which has appeared on his side of the field is able to communicate with the lost souls of the Shadow Realm, and as the board moves to the letter "F" Bakura explains that over the next four turns the board will spell out a five letter word and when the word has been spelled out in full Yugi will automatically lose.

    While the gang and Mokuba are worried that Yugi might not be able to win, Kaiba's only concern is whether Yugi will use Slifer the Sky Dragon or not. However Yugi's turn has not yet begun and Bakura continues by playing The Dark Door, a magic card that prevents Yugi from attacking more than once per turn. Summoning Earthbound Spirit (500/2000), Bakura sacrifices it, explaining that he has to offer one monster as a tribute each turn in order to keep the evil ghost of Dark Sanctuary in play.

    Realising that he needs to finish things quickly if he is going to win the duel, Yugi is confident that if he attacks with Dark Magician Girl he will win the duel, however he is concerned about Bakura's set card and begins by summoning Kuriboh (300/200) in defence mode. With a line of defence to protect him if Bakura's face down card turns oout to be a trap, Yugi orders his Dark Magician Girl to attack, however as it does so the evil ghost counters the attack (Y's LP: 2000, B's LP: 2150). As Bakura relishes in informing Yugi that the spirit posesses a different monster each turn, hiis turn begins and he activates the second letter of the Spirit Message - I.

    While Bakura is confident that the duel will be over in three moore turns, Yugi informs him of a flaw in his plan, that the Duel Disk only has room for five magic and trap cards and Bakura only has space for two more letters thanks to The Dark Door. Bakura isn't too concerned by this though as he explains that Dark Sanctuary allows him to use his monster slots to play more magic and trap cards meaning that he still has plenty of room for the rest of the Spirit Message. While Bakura is confident that Yugi only has three turns until he will be defeated, Mai is sure that Yugi will be able to turn the duel around if he can only work out which monster the evil ghoost has posessed.

    As Bakura summons and sacrifices Sangan (1000/600) to maintain the effect of Dark Sanctuary for another turn he uses its effect to draw another monster from his deck before ending his turn. As Bakura watches the evil ghost repossess Yugi's Dark Magician Girl, Yugi has no idea which monster has been possessed although he doubts that it is his Kuriboh. Apprehensive as to which monster he should attack with, Yugi is frustrated that the only monster in his hand is Big Shield Gardna (100/2600). Although it has a weak ATK, Yugi summons it in defence mode just in case he will need it however Bakura tells him that any attack will be futile, and as Yugi orders his Magnet Warrior to attack Bakura activates his trap card, Dark Spirit of the Silent, forcing Yugi's possessed Magician Girl to attack (Y's LP: 750, B's LP: 3400).

    While Duke and Serenity worry that it might be too late for Yugi to turn the tables, Tristan tells them to stay positive for Yugi's sake, however while Yugi himself is not confident of his ability to win their support may be for nothing. Even so, as Yugi sets two cards he warns Bakura that the evil ghost will soon be no more but as Bakura activates the next letter of the Spirit Message - N and summons Souls of the Forgotten (900/200), which he then tributes to Dark Sanctuary, he taunts Yugi to try to attack him however Yugi is happy to take the bait on this occasion.

    Explaining that he does not need to guess where the ghost is hiding, Yugi activates his trap card, Collected Power to gather the effects of all equipment cards on to Kuriboh. While Kaiba wonders what Yugi is planning, everything becomes clear as Yugi activates Exile of the Wicked to destroy his Kuriboh and all cards equipped to it, including the evil ghost of Dark Sanctuary. Even though his evil ghost has been destroyed, Bakura is still confident that he will win in only two more turns, but Marik is not so confident and he contacts Bakura mentally, reminding him that if he loses the duel then their deal will be off.

    Although Bakura is still confident that he can win the duel, things start to go from bbad to worse for him as Yugi activates Monster Reborn to revive Dark Necrofear (2200/2800) from Bakura's graveyard, negating the effect of Dark Sanctuary in the process. With the evil ghost gone and Bakura now only allowed to have five magic and trap cards on the field things are looking up for Yugi as he uses Dark Necrofear to attack Bakura's Life Points directly (B's LP: 1200). As Bakura activates the penultimate letter of the Spirit Message - A, Yugi realises that the word being spelt is FINAL however he informs Bakura that he would have to discard The Dark Door during this turn in order to activate the end of the Spirit Message during his next turn, and this would leave Bakura open to a three-way attack which would wipe out the remainder of his Life Points.

    Although Bakura is furious at how the tables have been turned, Kaiba doubts that Yugi will find victory quite this easy and as Marik contacts Bakura mentally once again and suggests that he should take control of Bakura in order to win the duel, Bakura refuses to give in as he draws what could be his final card. Looking at the card he holds in his hand, Bakura is delighted with it, sure that it will seal Yugi's defeat. But as he prepares to play it, both Yugi and his friends are naturally uneasy as to what is in store for Yugi in what could be the final turn of the duel.



    84. The Dark Spirit Revealed: Yugi vs. Bakura (3)

    Excited with the card that he has just drawn, Bakura takes great pleasure in summoning it, Jowgen the Spiritualist (200/1300) to the field. Although Joey and Yugi both have no idea what the monster can do which makes it so useful, Bakura explains that if he discards one card from his hand he can destroy any monster whiich was specially summoned to the field, namely Dark Necrofear. As he discards one card, Necrofear is destroyed and, as it is sent to the graveyard, the magic of Dark Sanctuary returns to the field.

    With the ability to play magic cards in his monster slots available to him once more, Bakura reminds Yugi that he now has room to activate the last letter of the Spirit Message at the start of his next turn. However while Joey and Yugi are both confident that Yugi will somehow be able to pull through and win the duel, Bakura is also confident that victory will be his as he sacrifices Jowgen to revive the evil ghost of Dark Sanctuary. As he sets one card and ends his turn, Bakura warns Yugi that there is no way for him to win, as attacking with the possessed monster would wipe out the remainder of Yugi's Life Points. Not only that, but Bakura's set card is Dark Spirit of the Silent meaning that there is no way for Yugi to not attack with the possessed monster.

    Unable to win whether he attacks or does not attack, Yugi is unable to see any way to win with the cards that he holds in his hand. As Duke suggests that Yugi may be unable to win, Tristan tells him to stop doubting Yugi but Mai agrees with Duke telling Tristan that things may be too bad for Yugi this time. As Serenity also begins to worry that Yugi might lose the rest of the gang continues to cheer him on and Yugi realises that there is still one card that could win him the duel; Slifer the Sky Dragon. As Kaiba hopes that Yugi is planning to try and summon the Egyptian God Card, Yugi puts all his faith in the Heart of the Cards and successfully draws the card, immediately sacrificing all three of his monsters to summon it to the field.

    As Slifer the Sky Dragon (X000/X000) appears on the field, it's massive body wrapped around Kaiba Craft 3, Yami Bakura is worried by the sight of the powerful beast, as are Yugi's friends, however Kaiba is glad to finally see Yugi using the card. Seeing Slifer's body from the window of her room, Ishizu senses that everything is going as the Millennium Necklace predicted it would and that Yugi is on track to win the duel. However Yami Bakura is still not willing to give in and even as Marik contacts him mentally once more he refuses to accept help, sure that the evil ghost of Dark Sanctuary will be able to control Slifer the Sky Dragon.

    The ghost prepares to enter Slifer the Sky Dragon, however as it does so it is destroyed by the powerful Egyptian God and Bakura begins to realise the true might of the legendary beast. As Yugi prepares to attack, things seem helpless for Bakura but Marik refuses to give in so easily and Odion, who everyone else believes is Marik, approaches the duelling arena with the Millennium Rod in his hand. As 'Marik' approaches, Joey is furious and prepares to make him pay for what he has done, however 'Marik' ignores him as he explains that he controls Bakura and the evil spirit of the Millennium Ring.

    'Marik' explains that he is going to force Bakura back in control of the body which is currently being controlled by te evil spirit, and as he says this the real Marik tells Yami Bakura that he has to relinquish control of Bakura's body if he seeks to win the duel as Yugi would not risk attacking his injured friend. As Yami Bakura releases Bakura from his control, Bakura collapses to the ground confused, injured and scared. As 'Marik' warns Yugi that Bakura will not survive the force of Slifer's attack, Bakura calls out for Yugi to help him but as Yugi goes to approach him the umpire warns him that contact with his opponent will result in him being disqualified.

    As Yugi struggles to choose between attacking and possibly destroying his friend or forfeiting the duel and leaving the world to suffer the wrath of Marik, Kaiba tells him to attack and be done with it. Angered by the fact that Yugi iis unable to help Bakura, Joey calls to the umpire to halt te duel but he refuses, warning Joey to back off lest he be disqualified from the tournament as well. However as Yugi debates what he should do, Yami Bakura senses that he is not going to give up the duel and regains control of Bakura's body, not able to risk it being destroyed. Realising that the evil spirit has regained control of Bakura's body, Yugi orders Slifer to attack, but as the powerful blast elimiinates the last of Bakura's Life Points he warns Yugi that he hasn't seen that last of him yet.

    As the injured Bakura collapses to the ground, Yugi and the others rush over to see if he is alright and, while weakened, he is still conscious. Tristan picks Bakura up and, carrying him on his back, leads him back to his room to rest, however while the rest of the gang follows him Yugi stays behind and contacts Yami. The two discuss what has happened and they both sense that Yami Bakura needs Bakura somehow, like how Yami needs Yugi. However Yugi explains that while Yami and he support each other, Bakura and his evil spirit are at constant conflict with each other and that in the end it will be Yugi and Yami who are victorious in Battle City.

    Heading off to see how Bakura is doing, Yugi is stopped by the umpire who tells him that he can take a card from Bakura's deck but Yugi refuses, more worried about his friend's well-being. As he reaches Bakura's room, he and the rest of the gang all agree that Bakura needs to get to a hospital as soon as possible, but while they are gathered together talk turns to what happened between Bakura and Marik and Ta suggests that Marik and the evil spirit of the Millennium Ring may be working together to achieve some common goal, although none of them hhave any idea what that might be.

    As Tristan and the others head off to try and get Kaiba to land the ship at the hospital, Ta offers to stay and watch over Bakura, however as Yugi prepares to leave he realises that the Millennium Ring has gone missing. Deciding not to worry about that now, Yugi also heads off but as he does so Marik takes control of Ta and reveals that she has the Millennium Ring, keeping it safe until Marik sees fit to return it.



    85. Rage of the Egyptian Gods

    With the first duel complete, a half hour intermission begins before the selection of the two duellists for the second match, however while Mai, Marik, Namu and Ishizu while away the time in their quarters, Yugi and the others head off in search of Kaiba to get him to land the blimp so that Bakura can get medical attention.

    Arriving at Kaiba's quarters, the gang are stopped by Mokuba who tells them not to disturb his brother's preparations for the next duel, however Joey ignores him and bangs on Kaiba's door, demanding that he let them in. As Kaiba opens the door and warns Joey not to cause any more trouble, Tristan and Yugi intervene to beg Kaiba to land the ship. Kaiba refuses to land, heartlessly suggesting that Bakura's current status is his own fault for leaving the hospital before he had fully recovered, however as Serenity begs that he land the ship he relents slightly, calling for a medical team to be sent to Bakura's room.

    As the gang look on slightly bewildered, Mokuba explains that Kaiba Craft 3 has medical staff on board who far surpass that of Domino Hospital. Pleased that their friend will be alright, the gang leave Kaiba's room and Tristan and Duke once again begin competing for Serenity's affections. As Joey and Yugi wonder how Bakura is doing, the gang remembers that the Millennium Ring has yet to be found and Tristan volunteers himself and Duke to go search for it up at the Stratos Duelling Arena. While Yugi and Joey offer to help, Tristan tells them that they need to focus on the duels as he drags Duke off towards the top of the blimp.

    Up on the top of the ship, Tristan and Duke begin to argue once more as their search for the Ring proves fruitless. However as Duke accuses Tristan of being scared of a little competition when it comes to Serenity, a fight between the two breaks out and the two rivals stumble over the edge of the ship. As Tristan does his best to hold onto the ledge, Duke is trying his best to hold onto Tristan lest they fall. Calling for help without success, things look bad for the pair as Tristan begins to lose his grip, however just as his hand slips from the ledge it is grabbed by a man wearing white robes, Shadi.

    As Tristan and Duke are pulled back up onto the blimp, Tristan goes to thank the robed stranger who saved them but he is nowhere to be seen. Meanwhile Yugi is sorting his deck ready for the next round and is worried that somebody else might get hurt if he has to use Slifer in the semi-finals, however before he is able to reflect further on the true power of his God Card Shadi enters the room. As Shadi explains that Yugi is starting to comprehend his fate, Yugi explains that he doesn't know very much other than the fact that Yami was an ancient egyptian pharaoh.

    While Yugi tries to get some straight answers out of Shadi, the mysterious man explains that he has only come to Kaiba Craft 3 because he senses a misalignment of the Millennium Items. As he goes on to inform Yugi that all the items required to save or destroy the world are gathered upon the ship, he warns Yugi that if the God Cards and the Millennium Items fall into the hands of the wrong people then a catastrophe similar to that which occurred when Maximillion Pegasus first created Duel Monsters might occur once again.

    "After Pegasus met Shadi and was given the Millennium Eye, he discovered the origin of the Shadow Games and became obsessed with them, seeking to resurrect their ancient powers. As he discovered the legend of the Egyptian God Cards, Pegasus became determined to find and recreate these three ancient beasts however he had little success until Shadi came to him once again, offering to help him find the tablets that he was looking for."

    "Intrigued, Pegasus followed Shadi to an ancient tomb beneath the sands where an underground city was located. Recording everything that he saw on camera, Pegasus was amazed when Shadi used the Millennium Key to prevent the search party being discovered by the many guards in the city and eventually, after many hours of walking, the party arrived at the tomb where the God tablets resided. Although Shadi would not let Pegasus remove anything from the tomb, Pegasus was exstatic and gathered all of the data he needed in order to reproduce the three Gods."

    "As Pegasus returned to America to begin producing the prototype God Cards, Shadi was not certain whether Pegasus would be able to control the power of the three beats although he knew that it was his destiny to unseal them. As the project continued, Pegasus learned that all of the people working on designing the God cards had met with unfortunate accidents and, going against Croquet's wishes, decided to finish production of the cards on his own."

    "Weeks later, Pegasus finished the paintings of the three Gods and had yet to meet with any unfortunate accident, however as he fell asleep in front of the canvas he had a terrifying dream in which he saw the three Gods destroying Egypt. Realising that it was not Pegasus's destiny to control the God cards, Shadi convinced him to seal the God cards away and so he did so, handing all three cards over to Ishizu Ishtar for safe keeping."

    As Shadi warns Yugi that Marik must not be allowed to gather all three cards together, Yami promises him that such a thing will never happen. Honoured to be in the presence of the pharaoh once again, Shadi is confident that Yami will be able to end the chaos like he did in ancient times. Before Yami can ask anything else, he is distracted by an announcement requesting all finalists to proceed to the main concourse, and by the time that he has turned back Shadi has vanished. While Yugi and Yami prepare to head off for the main hall, they hear Tristan discussing having seen a robed man but decide not to mention anything.

    Meanwhile, Shadi arrives at Ishizu's room where she explains that although she is ashamed that Marik is to blame for everything that has happened she is determined to save him before it is too late. Over in Bakura's room, Marik still has control over Ta as he decides to keep control of both her and the Millennium Ring for the time being. Nobody in the room notices Shadi as he enters, however as he does so he senses that this is where the disturbance in the Millennium Items is the most strongest. Realising that Marik is behind the disturbance, Shadi can but hope that Marik will be stopped before it is too late.



    86. Awakening of Evil (1)

    With the finalists once again gathered in the main hall, the selection for the second duel begins as the numbers of the six duellists yet to compete begin to rotate within the lottery machine; Kaiba (1), Joey (2), Mai (4), Namu (5), Marik (7), Ishizu (8). As the first ball, number 2, appears from the machine, Joey is excited that he won't have to wait any longer for his chance to shine, and as his opponent is revealed to be duellist 7, Marik Ishtar, Joey is thrilled to be getting the opportunity to take Marik down in the first round.

    As everyone makes their way to the duelling arena, Yugi is worried that Marik may use the Millennium Rod to help him with the duel however this doesn't concern Joey who, although angry at Marik for everything that has happened, is sure he will win. As the gang worries that Joey may find it hard to stay focused, Serenity is nervous about seeing her brother duel for the first time but the gang reassure her that everything'll be alright. However as the two duellists make their way to their sides of the arena, Joey begins to get cocky as he announces that he will defeat Marik in exactly nine turns.

    While the gang can't believe how lame Joey is acting, Serenity is amazed at how professional her brother is, already having planned exactly how he is going to defeat his opponent. Completely unfazed by the comment, Marik withdraws the Millennium Rod from his belt but then puts it away again, a sign that he intends to duel fairly. As Namu, the real Marik, looks on he is amused at how easily the others have been fooled into believing that Odion is the real Marik. However while he is not worried by Yugi or Joey, he is concerned as to what Kaiba's role in the ancient destinies is and why the stone tablet depicting the final duel between the sorceror and the pharaoh showed Kaiba with the Millennium Rod in his posession.

    Confident that Kaiba does not realise the true potential of the God Cards, Namu is sure that as long as Odion continues to fool people into thinking that he is Marik they will be able to defeat both Yugi and Kaiba without any major problems. Kaiba, meanwhile, is eager to see the true power of The Winged Dragon of Ra and merely hopes that Joey will survive long enough for Marik to summon it to the field.

    As the duel prepares to begin, Namu contacts Marik mentally and tells him that he must win, and as Marik promises to defeat Joey, the duel begins and both duellists are confident that victory will be theirs. Cheering Joey from the sidelines, the gang is shocked to learn that Joey still hasn't taken back his Red-Eyes Black Dragon. Hoping that Joey will be able to keep his cool against an opponent like Marik, the gang are horrified as Joey, distracted by the prospect of defating Marik and being proclaimed a hero, has the cards from his hand blown away by the wind.

    Safely recovering his cards before they are blown away, Joey realises that he will have to be more careful and, focusing on the duel, summons Gearfried the Iron Knight (1800/1600). Although Joey has summoned a strong monster on the opening turn, Marik is not concerned as he activates a Field Magic Card, Temple of the Kings. As an Ancient Egyptian temple appears behind Marik's side of the duelling arena he explains that the Temple will restrict the number of Magic or Trap cards that Joey can play to just one per turn.

    However while Joey is restricted Marik faces no such limit as he sets two cards face down and ends his turn, challenging Joey to attack him. As Duke summises that Marik is trying to lure Joey into a trap, Yugi is worried about the full power of Temple of the Kings. Trying his best to keep his cool, Joey sees that he has Giant Trunade in his hand and is confident that he will be able to use it to destroy all of Marik's monsters when the time is right.

    Summoning Tiny Guardian (1400/1800) Joey ends his turn without attacking and as Marik's turn begins he sets two more cards before ending his turn. As Yugi and Mai are dumbfounded by the fact that Marik is trying to use such an old strategy to win, Joey is confident that victory is about to be his as he summons Hayabusa Knight (1000/700). With a total attack strength of more than 4000 points at his disposal Joey plays Giant Trunade, hoping to blow away all of Marik's trap cards leaving him open to a direct attack.

    As the Trunade closes in on Marik's cards, the gang are sure that Joey is about to win, however at the last minute the Trunade's effect is blocked. As Joey wonders what went wrong, Marik explains that he knew his trap cards were vulnerable and had therefore set a counter trap, Judgement of Anubis. As all of the monsters on Joey's side of the field are destroyed, half of their total ATK is deducted from his Life Points (J's LP: 1900).

    Understandably furious at having fallen into Marik's trap, Joey tries to shun the move by claiming that he knew all about Marik's counter trap and was merely testing him. However while the gang do not believe this even for a second, Serenity has full faith in her brother. As Marik sets two new cards on the field, Joey's is beginning to lose his cool as he summons Alligator's Sword (1500/1200). Sure that Marik will activate another trap if he attacks, Joey sets one card and ends his turn however Marik simply passes.

    Realising that Marik is trying to force him into attacking, Joey also passes but as Marik passes for a second time Joey cracks and as he summons Rocket Warrior (1500/1300) and orders it to attack. Although surprised that Joey cracked so soon, Marik is pleased as he activates his Eye of Oujot Trap Card, taking control of Joey's Rocket Warrior and redirecting its attack at Joey's own Alligator's Sword.

    However Joey is prepared for Marik's Trap as he reveals his Fairy Box, concealing his Alligator within one of many holes. As the Rocket Warrior attacks, it finds itself attacking an empty hole. Having successfully avoided one of Marik's traps, Joey becomes confident that Marik has no monsters in his deck, however Marik's begs to disagree as he explains that while he may have no ordinary monsters, he does have a rare breed of Trap Monster.

    As Marik reveals his Embodiment of Opopis, the gang are concerned as to what monster it will summon. However thing go from bad to worse as Marik reveals that he has set not one but three of these traps and as he summons three Opopis Snakes, each with an ATK of 1600, Joey looks done for as Marik prepares for a triple attack that will wipe out almost all of his remaining Life Points.



    87. Awakening of Evil (2)

    Clearly intimidated by Marik's Opopis Snakes, Joey refuses to give in even though things look hopeless for him. Setting Scapegoat face-down he changes his Alligator's Sword to Defence Mode, hoping that together they will be enough to block Marik's attack, at least until he can think of a way to win. As Marik orders his three snakes to attack, Joey activates Scapegoat however Marik counters it with Magic Jammer. As both of his monsters are destroyed, Joey takes the full impact of the third snake's attack (J's LP: 200) and begins to wonder whether he has any chance of surviving another turn.

    Unable to see his friend struggle alone any longer, Yugi calls out to Joey, telling his friend that he has to defeat Marik for everybody's sake. While this comment amuses Namu, the real Marik, Kaiba is furious that Marik will win without summoning Ra to the field. As Marik tells Joey that he may as well give up now, Mai calls out to tell Joey not to give up and to stay strong until the very end. Not one to back out no matter how bad things look, Joey's spirits are raised by the support of Mai and the others, especially as Serenity tells him that she is sure that he can win, reminding him that he inspired her to not give up when things got tough. With all his friends behind him, Joey gets back up and informs Marik that his friends are what will keep him going.

    As Joey remarks that Marik probably doesn't know what friendship is, his opponent remembers a time when he did feel such warmth, when he was rescued by the real Marik's mother after being deserted by his own parents. With both duellists as determined as ever to win, Joey remembers his Battle City duels against Mako, Espa and Weevil and as Yami reminds him of the promise he made to help defeat Marik, Joey begins to weave the plan which could help him win the duel. Setting two cards, Joey summons Swordsman of Landstar (500/1500) in defence mode and ends his turn. However as Marik orders his trio of serpent swordsmen to attack, Joey reveals the first of his two set cards to be Foolish Burial. As he uses his Magic card to send one card from his hand to Marik's graveyard, Joey activates his other set card, Graverobber

    Summoning his own Jinzo (2400/1500) from Marik's graveyard, Joey uses his monster's special ability to destroy all three of Marik's Trap Monsters. As Joey remembers how Espa Roba used Jinzo against him back in his first duel of Battle City, Joey is pleased that the monster is now coming in useful although Marik still seems worryingly confident that victory will be his. Pleased that Joey may now survive long enough for Marik to have to summon The Winged Dragon of Ra, Kaiba begins to take interest in the duel once again as Joey summons Battle Warrior (700/1000) in attack mode. Switching his Swordsman of Landstar into Attack Mode as well, Joey's trio of monsters attack Marik directly (M's LP: 400) taking a big chunk out of his Life Points.

    With the scores almost level, Joey and the others are confident that he might be able to win after all, however Marik's Temple of the Kings still poses a possible problem. As Namu contacts Marik mentally and orders him to destroy Joey, Marik is confident that he can render Joey's monsters useless as he plays Swords of Revealing Light. As Joey hopes that Marik won't be able to recover during the three turns he has bought himself he tributes his Battle Warrior to summon The Legendary Fisherman (1850/1600). Determined to use it well, as he promised Mako he would, Joey switches his monsters to Defence Mode as he ends his turn.

    Hoping to draw a card which could help him win, Marik is shocked as he draws The Winged Dragon of Ra. As Namu explains that he slipped the card into his deck in case it was necessary to reinforce the fact that Odion is the real Marik, Odion is worried that he won't be able to control the powerful God. As Marik sets one card, Namu orders him to seal Ra within the Ancient Ark of the Temple of the Kings, however as Marik considers whether he should use the card or not Ta notices that he has been acting weird since he drew that last card.

    Yugi has also noticed this and suggests that it might have something to do with the Temple's Ark and as Joey calls for Marik to make his next move he confirms this as he seals a card within the Ark. While Yugi is worried that the card Marik sealed might have been The Winged Dragon of Ra, Joey takes the opportunity to strengthen his defences as he uses Monster Reborn to revive his Alligatro's Sword before tributing both it and his Swordsman of Landstar to summon Insect Queen (2200/2400) in Defence Mode.

    With all three of his Battle City prize cards on the field, it is apparent that Joey's deck has grown more powerful since he entered the tournament, however as Marik's Swords of Revealing Light fade away Marik explains that Joey will soon be defeated. Playing Cup of Sealed Soul from his hand, Marik activates his face-down card Seal or Serket along with the special ability of Temple of the Kings to summon the Mystical Beast of Serket. As the huge beast appears on the field, the gang are all freaked out by it's grotesque appearance, however Marik informs them that although this beast is powerful there are more powerful monsters in his posession, namely The Winged Dragon of Ra.



    88. Awakening of Evil (3)

    With Marik's Mystical Beast on the field, things look bad for Joey however he refuses to give up even thoguh the monster's stats (2500/2000) make it stronger than any of his monsters. As Marik is intrigued by Joey's determination, Serenity is worried for her brother however Yugi reassuers her that Joey can still win this as long as Marik refrains from summoning The Winged Dragon of Ra.

    Meanwhile, Marik once again contacts Namu to ask why he put Ra in his deck and Namu explains that the card is not the real one but merely a copy. Namu explains that the Rare Hunters spent months perfecting the copying process and althogh some problems occurred when the early copies were tested he is sure that Marik will have no problem using this copy. Although honoured that Namu has such faith in him, Marik is sure that he can defeat Joey without needing to use Ra and as Joey passes, having drawn Polymerisation, Marik decides to show off his monster's power.

    Attacking Joey's Jinzo, Marik's Mystical Beast absorbs the monster along with half of it's ATK points (MB's ATK: 3700). As Joey realises that Marik's monster is only going to get stronger as the turns go on, he is forced to pass, allowing Marik to absorb his Insect Queen (MB's ATK: 4900). As Serenity starts to worry that her brother may be about to lose, Joey calls to her to be strong explaining that she is his biggest inspiration.

    Touched by the bond between Joey and his sister, Odion remembers how he was rescued by Marik's mother when he was abandoned as a child. "Although Odion lived peacefully with Mr and Mrs Ishtar for a time, things became complicated when Odion learned of the Tomb Keeper's Initiation and how the Ishtars needed an heir to pass their heritage down to. Although Mrs Ishtar suggested that Odion could partake in the ritual, her husband refused to go against tradition."

    "Some time afterwards, Ishizu was born and the Ishtars were pleased although as they still had no male heir Mrs Ishtar informed Odion of the Initiation, hoping that she may be able to convince her husband to let Odion take part in it before his twelfth birthday. However as Odion's twelfth birthday grew close Mrs Ishtar gave birth to Marik meaning Odion would no longer be needed to take part in the Initiation."

    "As Mrs Ishtar died in labour giving birth to Marik, Odion was given the task of making sure he remained safe as he grew up. The task was hard and whenever Marik injured himself Odion was blamed by Mr Ishtar and often beaten, however Odion devoted his life to protecting Marik and the two grew close like brothers. Forced to devote his life to the pharaoh and the scriptures, Marik grew bitter about the prospect of having to live in the tomb forever and Odion offered to partake in the ritual in Marik's place."

    "Furious at this suggestion, Mr Ishtar refused Odion's offer and forced Marik to take part in the painful ritual. After the Initiation, Marik was furious at Odion until his friend revealed that he had performed his own ritual to show his loyalty for his master. Although the hatred towards Odion faded, Marik's anger remained and he seemed somehow changed, as if infused with an evil side".

    As Namu (Marik) orders Marik (Odion) to hurry up and make his next move, Marik is sure that he will defeat Joey and his opponent is starting to doubt his chance of winning as well. However as Joey refuses to surrender Mai is worried that he is about to be defeated although Yugi doints out that Joey seems more confident than ever, even with the odds stacked against him. As Joey's Legendary Fisherman is absorbed (MB's ATK: 5825) Joey is upset at having let Mako down and as he passes he challenges Marik to attack.

    With no cards on Joey's side of the field, victory seems assured for Marik however Joey is still confident that he will not be defeated, and as Marik orders his Mystical Beast to attack Joey announces that he does not believe that his opponent is the real Marik Ishtar. As everyone looks on confused, Joey explains that while the Marik from Battle City was evil and ruthless, this Marik has fought a fair duel since the beginning.

    Accusing his opponent of being an impostor, Joey angers Marik and Namu and Yugi agrees with Joey explaining that he too has his doubts that Joey's opponent is the real Marik. As the gang wonder who Marik could really be if he is not Joey's opponent, suspicion is cast towards Namu until he orders Marik to summon Ra to convince everybody that he really is Marik. Although worried that the God Card may prove to powerful for him to handle, Marik has little choice but to obey unless he wishes to face the wrath of the real Marik.


    89. Awakening of Evil (4)

    As Marik begs Namu not to make him summon Ra, Namu insists that he do it as a sign of his loyalty towards the Tomb Keepers. While the gang looks on, confused as to why Marik has not yet attacked and finished Joey off, Marik brings out the Millennium Rod once again, announcing that he will summon The Winged Dragon of Ra as proof as to who he really is. Sacrificing the Mystical Beast of Serket, along with half of his Life Points (M's LP: 200) Marik calls forth The Winged Dragon of Ra from the Ancient Ark within Temple of the Kings.

    Pleased that he will finally see the power of the third and final God Card, Kaiba is impressed as the Ancient Ark opens and the sky lights up as Ra is called to the field. As Ishizu senses that Ra has been summoned, Kaiba is in awe as he looks upon the most powerful of the three God Cards. Determined to get the duel finished quickly, Marik explains that Ra adopts the ATK and DEF of the monsters used to summon it, making its ATK an immense 5845.

    Although worried for Joey, the gang hopes that he still has some way to win however Namu is not so sure, confident that everything is going according to plan and that soon Joey will be defeated. But as Marik orders Ra to attack, both Namu and Ishizu sense that something has gone awry as Namu's real God Card begins to glow, as if angered by the use of a fake version. As Namu realises that Marik is not strong enough to control the copy of the card, a storm begins to brew above the duelling arena as Ra's wrath bears down on the duellists.

    As lightning bolts begin to strike the field, Odion, the duellist who everyone believed was Marik up until now, is struck down and as he does so his fake Millennium Rod is shattered. As Odion apologises to Namu, the real Marik, for failing him the gang realise that they have been duped by somebody. As Joey tries to cross the arena to see if Odion is alright, Yugi warns him to be careful but it is too late and Joey is also struck down by lightning.

    As the gang prepare to see if Joey and the fake Marik are alright, the referee stops them from entering the arena while the duel is still in progress. Furious that Kaiba is allowing the duel to go on with both players unconscious, the gang is even more angry as Kaiba announces that the first person to stand up in the next five minutes will win the duel, unless neither stand up in which case they will both be disqualified.

    With only three minutes remaining until both players forfeit the duel, Ishizu senses that the evil presence within Marik is growing once again and remembers how the only thing that had been sealing it away was Odion's loyalty to his master. Although Ishizu is determined to revive the goodness within Marik, things look bad as Marik struggles to fight the evil within him and although Odion begins to stand up he then collapses once again. With two minutes remaining until their friend is disqualified from the tournament, the gang call for Joey to stand up not realising that he is deep in a dream at the present moment.

    "Sleeping at his desk at school, Joey is woken by Ta, Tristan, Duke, Yugi and Bakura who tell him that he has to get up because time is running our for the most important duel of his life. As a dazed Joey tried to ready his deck he drops all of his cards on the floor but the gang helps him to pick them up, offering to help him prepare his deck as best they can. Kaiba calls to Joey to give up but he refuses, handing Tristan a list of the cards in his deck."

    "As the gang continue to gather up the cards, Joey sees Serenity and Mai helping gather the cards and they explain that they weren't going to miss the biggest duel of his life. However as Joey tries to make sense of everything Tristan pulls him to one side and points out that the list he handed him was blank. Joey is confused but thanks Tristan for being such a great friend considering everything that has happened and as the two return to help sort the deck Yugi hands Joey the finshed pile of cards."

    "Now ready to head off, the gang makes for the classroom door but Joey is unable to stand up and calls for some help only to find every one of his friends offering to help him stand up." As Joey stands up in his dream, he wakes to find himself standing on the arena with his opponent lying unconscious on the other side of the arena. Remembereing everything that has happened, Joey is pleased as he is announced the winner of the duel.

    As Joey rushes over to his opponent to see how he is doing, Kaiba wonders what went wrong as Odion apologises to Joey for everything that has happened. As Joey and his opponent agree that they fought an honourable duel, the gang see Namu struggling to fight something and realise that he is clutching the real Millennium Rod.

    Announcing that he is indeed the real Marik Ishtar, Marik informs Yugi that he will take great pleasure in defeating him however as Odion begins to lose consciousness once more he tries to warn Yugi and Joey that there is a presence within Marik that is more evil than the nemesis they have been facing so far. As Odion collapses unconscious, the evil presence within Marik takes control of Marik's body and warns Yugi that soon he and his friends will be banished to the Shadow Realm for eternity.

    As the new Marik explains that only a chosen few people can successfully control a God Card Ishizu senses that her brother is no longer in control of his body. However this new spirit seems more confident than ever that he will defeat Yugi and claim the power of the Gods and the Pharaoh and it may be that even Yami will be unable to defeat him when the final battle begins.



    90. Mind Game (1)

    As Odion's condition begins to stabilise as he recovers in his room, Ta tells Joey that he is lucky to be alright considering the mental strain that Odion suffered during the duel. Although the gang want to know more about what Odion was doing pretending to be Marik, they are unable to ask any questions while Odion is in his current state and while Joey is furious that Marik has shown no interest in how Odion is doing Mai asks him what he expected from their main rival.

    As Mai comments that they will all need their friends more than ever now, Joey remembers the dream he had during the duel and tells the gang about it, however as the group head off to see the selection for the next duel Mai asks Joey if she was in the dream and he claims that she wasn't, not wanting Mai to know that he was dreaming about her. Although Joey thinks he has done the right thing, Ta sees that Mai has been hurt by the remark and confronts Joey to tell him how much of a jerk he had just been.

    Believing that Joey doesn't think of her as a friend, Mai decides that she can go it alone from here on in and makes her way to the main concourse, however when she gets there she discoveres that Marik and the eighth duellist are yet to arrive. As Joey demands that Marik should be disqualified from the tournament, Kaiba refuses, stating that the tournament is about skills and not names. Kaiba also muses that if Marik were to be disqualified then there would be no way for him to claim The Winged Dragon of Ra, however he does not mention this to anybody else.

    As the selector statrs up to decide choose the final two pairings for the first round, Kaiba wishes to be pitted against Marik and as Mai's ball is the first one to be picked the pairing could still go one of three ways. Not concerned with who her opponent will be, Mai makes her way up to the duelling arena before the second ball is picked and as Yugi and the others go to follow her she tells them not to bother.

    Meanwhile, as the doctor leaves Odion room, Yami Marik takes control of his mind forcing him to hand over the key card to Odion's room. Entering the room, Marik prepares to send his old friend to the Shadow Realm as an announcement over the tannoy system calls for him to make his way to the duelling arena to participate in the third duel. As Marik arrives at the arena, Mai is waiting for him, confident that she will be able to defeat him, however Yami Marik is also confident that victory will be his.

    As she makes her first move, Mai summons Dunames Dark Witch (1800/1050) in attack mode, ending her turn, however as the gang arrive at the spectator's box Yugi is worried to see that Yami Marik has made a familiar first move, summoning Revival Jam (1500/500) in defence mode and then avtivating his Jam Breeding Machine. As Mai asks the gang why they bothered coming, Joey explains that they wanted to support their friend, but as Yugi tries to warn Mai about Yami Marik's strategy she tells him not to interfere.

    Amused by Mai's confidence, Yami Marik looks on eagerly as Mai attacks his Revival Jam only to see it return to the field unharmed. Playing Pot of Greed, Yami Marik draws two more cards before using his Jam Breeding Machine to create a Slime Token (500/500). Setting one card face down, Yami Marik is sure that he will be able to render Mai's monsters helpless, however as she activates Harpie's Feather Duster she destroys both his set card and his Jam Breeding Machine before destroying the Slime Token which Yami Marik had produced (YM's LP: 2700).

    Not realising that Yami Marik is lulling her into a false sense of security, Mai sets one card and ends her turn. Summoning Melchid the Four-Face Beast (1500/1200), Marik sacrifices it along with his Revival Jam to summon the Masked Beast Des Guardius (3300/2500). However as Marik's monster attacks, Mai activates her Mirror Wall and Yami Marik's monster is destroyed (YM's LP: 2550). As Marik's Masked Beast is destroyed, it leaves behind a mask which gives Marik control of Mai's Dark Witch and with Mai's monster under his control, Marik plays Remove Trap, destroying Mai's Mirror Wall.

    Althoguh Tristan is unsure as to whether Mai will be able to pull back against Marik, Joey is confident that she can win however as he tries to offer support Mai tells him not to bother. However as the two argue, Yami Marik is confident that soon all of Mai's friends will be helping him as he uses the Millennium Rod to send the duel into the Shadow Realm. Worried about what could happen not that a Shadow Game has begun, the gang fear for Mai's safety however she refuses to give up, not realising the severity of the situation.

    Setting one card on the field, Mai summons The Unfriendly Amazon (2200/1000), however as she does so she notices that there is a purple aura surrounding her monster. As Yami Marik explains that the aura is a sumbol of Mai's mind and that if the monster is destroyed some of Mai's memories will be taken with it. As Mai triea to make sense of what Yami Marik is saying she attacks her Dunames Dark Witch, now under Marik's control, and destroys it (YM's LP: 2350).

    However as the monster is destroyed, Yami Marik explains that because the monster was originally Mai's then it is her memories that will be erased. Taking the opportunity to elaborate on what he means, Marik explains that each of their monsters contains the memories of one person that they know and as Mai looks on Marik reveals that her Dark Witch contained her memories of Ta. As Mai tries her best to resist she finds her memories of Ta slipping away and she is quickly not even able to see Ta standing on the sidelines cheering for her.

    As Marik informs Mai that she has no chance of being victorious in the Shadow Game and that soon she will be alone in her mind the gang worries whether Mai will be able to survive much longer, knowing that things will only get worse as the duel continues.



    91. Mind Game (2)

    As Mai tries to work out what Yami Marik has done to her, she can hear Ta's voice calling to her but is unable to make out where the voice is coming from. As the gang wonder why Mai is ignoring Ta, Yugi realises that Yami Marik was telling the truth before and that he has erased Mai's memories of her friend. Amused to see that the others are beginning to work out what is happening, Yami Marik is confident that soon all of Mai's memories will be gone forever.

    Setting one card, Yami Marik summons Makiura the Destructor (1600/1200), equipping it with the Black Pendant to raise its ATK by 500 points. As Yami Marik prepares to attack, announcing to Mai that she has no chance against a duellist with his experience, Mai activates her Amazon Archers trap card, reducing Marik's monster's ATK by 500 points making it weaker than her Unfriendly Amazon.

    As the two monsters clash, Yami Marik's monster is the one that is destroyed (YM's LP: 1950) along with his memories of Strings however Yami Marik merely thanks Mai for removing his memories of his servant explaining that he wants to be alone. Although the attack may have finished, Yami Marik is far from finished as he explains that the Black Pendant deals 500 points of damage to his opponent when it is sent to the graveyard (M's LP: 3500). He then goes on to explain that when Makiura the Destructor is destroyed he is allowed to activate a Trap card from his hand.

    Playing his Rope of Life, Yami Marik revives his Destructor with an extra 800 ATK points and uses it to destroy Mai's Amazon. As Mai's monster fades away she senses her memories of Joey beginning to fade away and tries her best not to lose them. Remembering how she has been alone all her life, with her parents moving around so often when she was a child, the only time that Mai found true friendship was after she met up with Yugi and the others at Duellist Kingdom.

    Unable to break Marik's Shadow Spell, Mai's memories of Joey fade completely and she is unable to see him as he calls to see if she is alright. Confused as to why Mai isn't answering him, Joey looks to Yugi for answers and he explains what Yami Marik is doing. Determined not to let the twisted game go on any longer, Yami decides that the time has come to show Mai that she is not alone and, using the power of the Millennium Puzzle, he is able to penetrate Marik's Shadow Magic.

    Discovering Mai wandering alone in the darkness, Yami calls out to her like a beacon of light and tells her than everything she believes to be real is merely an illusion which will fade if only she can defeat Yami Marik in the duel. Although Mai is unsure as to whether she has the strength to win she hears Joey's voice calling to her again and decides to keep on going in the hopes that she can still win.

    As Mai regains some of her confidence, Yami Marik is furious that Yugi managed to break his spell. Summoning her Amazon Chain Master (1500/1300), Mai sets one card and taunts Yami Marik to attack her, however her new found confidence seems misplaced as Yami Marik summons Holding Arms (500/0) and uses its effect to prevent Mai's Chain Master from attacking for three turns. Fearing for Mai's safety, Yugi tries to convince Yami Marik to stop the Shadow Game and duel normally however he insists that the two games are intertwined.

    Confident that she is not yet defeated, Mai calls out to Yugi to have faith in her as she activates Grave Arm. While Yami Marik informs her that his Holding Arms cannot be damaged by anything during the next three turns, Mai reveals that she is using the card on her own monster. With Mai's monster sent to the graveyard because of her own move none of her memories are destroyed. Not only that, but her Amazon also allows her to draw a card from Yami Marik's deck.

    Knowing exactly which card she wants, Mai chooses Marik's God Card, The Winged Dragon of Ra, however while she is pleased to have the chance of test driving it before she claims it as her prize Yami Marik is not concerned, sure that she will be unable to control the card if she does manage to summon it. Also, with no monsters on her side of the field and two monsters on Marik's side, Mai realises that gathering enough monsters to tribute won't be easy.

    Nonetheless, Mai is not dissuaded as she sets two cards and summons her Amazon Fighter (1500/1300). Amused that Mai is still relying on her weak Amazon monsters to win, Yami Marik attacks, but as he does so Mai activates Amazon Magician, swapping the ATK points of their two monsters and destroying Yami Marik's revived Destructor (YM's LP: 1050).

    As his memories of Arkana fade away, Yami Marik reveals that he set Mai up as he activates his Trap Card Card of Last Will, a card which allows him to draw five cards when the ATK of one of his monsters is lowered. Not only that, but Makiura's effect is activated once more and Yami Marik plays Nightmare Wheel. However before Marik's Trap Card can begin to take effect, paralysing Mai's Amazon and dealing her Life Points 500 points of damage each turn, Mai activates Rescue Operation to call her Amazon Fighter back to her hand.

    Annoucing that her card also allows her to Special Summon one monster from her hand to the field, Mai explains that she isn't foolish enough to summon Ra that way as its ATK and DEF would both become 0. Instead she summons Cyber Harpie (1800/1300), hoping that she will draw Elegant Egotist in order to triple her Harpies and summon Ra. Drawing and playing Graceful Charity, Mai is fortunate enough to draw the card she needs.

    Activating Elegant Egotist, Mai transforms her one Cyber Harpie into a trio of the winged beasts. Sacrificing her three monsters she summons The Winged Dragon of Ra, however as the wind begins to build up and the sky lights up with the glow from Ra's body, Mai is horrified to see that the God card is locked inside a spherical ball which she has no idea how to open.



    92. Mind Game (3)

    Amused by Mai's futile attempts to control The Winged Dragon of Ra, Yami Marik informs his opponent that he is the only one capable of unsealing the monster and that soon her mind will be trapped in the Shadow Realm forever. As Yami Marik explains that only those with knowledge of the ancient scriptures is able to read the and text on Ra's card, Mai is shocked to see that the previously blank card now has a number of lines of ancient writing printed on it.

    Going on to explain that the person who reads the card text will gain control of the monster, Yami Marik offers to let Mai have a go at deciphering it before he takes control. However while Mai is unable to decode the text, Kaiba informs Mokuba to scan the card and begin translating what the text says. As Mokuba heads off, Yami Marik announces that the writing is a form of heiroglyphics known only by high ranking officials in Ancient Egypt and mockingly informs Kaiba that he should be able to read it.

    Explaining that very few people on the ship will be able to translate the card, Yami Marik informs his audience that even Pegasus himself did not understand what the text said and that he simply copied them onto the card. As Mai summises that her attempts to decipher the text are futile, Yugi realises that Yami Marik set the whole duel up in order to get Mai to summon the God Card. Setting one card, Gravity Bind, Mai ends her turn and passes to Yami Marik.

    With his final turn now at hand, Marik summons Holding Legs (800/600) and uses its effect to return Mai's Trap Card to her hand. He then proceeds to use the special ability of his two monsters to summon the Sacred Stone of Oujah, a mystical stone tablet that appears on the field behind Mai. As the two monsters attack Mai directly they grasp her arms and legs before pinning her to the Sacred Stone, preventing her from moving or reaching her Duel Disk.

    Amazed at the power of the holograms, Mai is shocked to be told that these monsters are actually real. As Mai feels the full force of the attack (M's LP: 800), Joey calls out to her but she is still unable to see him or recognise his voice, and before she can do anything else Yami Marik begins the chant that will gain him control of Ra:

    Great beast of the sky, please hear my cry,

    Transform thyself from orb of light and bring me victory in this fight.


    As the orb containing Ra begins to glow brighter and open, Yami Marik continues to chant:

    Envelope the desert with your glow and cast your rage upon my foe.

    Unlock your powers deep within so that together we may win.

    Appear in this Shadow Game as I call your name...

    Winged Dragon of Ra


    With the chant complete, a winged, golden dragon appears on the field as Marik successfully unlocks The Winged Dragon of Ra (5400/3900). Sensing the immense power of the God Card, Yugi knows that Mai will be destroyed if she is hit with the full strength of Ra's attack and tells Yami Marik to leave Mai alone as his dispute is with him. However Yami Marik is enjoying the duel too much to give up now and is determined to cause the Pharaoh as much pain as possible before he is destroyed, even if it means targetting his friends.

    As Yami Marik orders his Winged Dragon to attack, Joey decides that enough is enough and rushes over to Mai to try and help her break free before Marik's God attacks. Calling out to his friend, telling her that she will be alright, Joey starts to break Marik's spell and Mai's memories of him begin to return to her. Realising how much of a jerk he had been earlier, Joey tells Mai that she had also been in the dream he had and that he thinks of her as a friend.

    Realising that she is not alone, Mai breaks Marik's spell and is able to see Joey again, however things may be too late for her as Ra's attack is unleashed with her still chained to the Sacred Stone. As Joey refuses to leave Mai to face the force of the attack, Yami jumps onto the arena and uses his body to shield his friends from the force of the attack. Hoping that he may have defeated the pharaoh much sooner than expected, Yami Marik is furious to see that Yugi has survived the attack and that all three friends are still alive.

    As Yami Marik is declared the winner of the duel and the Shadow Magic fades, Joey tries his best to wake the unconscious Yugi as Yami Marik approaches and threatens to send his nemesis to the Shadow Realm. As Joey tries to stop Marik he uses the Millennium Rod to paralyse Joey before approaching Mai and using the Rod to seal her mind in the Shadow Realm.

    Stunned by the light, Mai finds herself trapped inside a large hour glass and as she looks down she can see Yugi, Joey and the others playing at the beach. Calling out to them, Mai finds that they canot hear her although Yami Marik can. As her opponent taunts her he informs Mai that she will be trapped in the Shadow Realm, alone, for eternity and as he reclaims Ra from the center of the hourglass sand begins to fall into Mai's half and her memories of her friends begin to fade away once again.

    With her mind gone, Mai's body collapses, lifeless, and as Yami Marik prepares to walk off Joey demands to know what has happened to her. As Joey's anger builds and he prepares to attack Marik, Serenity tells him not to, worried about what might happen to her big brother. Leaving the group of friends to pick up the pieces, Yami Marik walks off content in the fact that he grows stronger with every mind he sends to the Shadow Realm.

    Desperately trying to wake their friends, the gang are glad to see Yami waking although they are still concerned about Mai. As the gang explain to Yami what Marik did to their friend, Mokuba contacts Kaiba over their personal intercom system to inform him that there are other texts printed on Ra that were not revealed during the duel. As Kaiba tells Mokuba to continue translating the text he orders Yugi and the others to clear the field, determined to get his duel over and done with as quickly as possible.



    93. Kaiba vs. the Future (1)

    Kaiba begins his duel with Ishizu. He appears to have the upper hand, as she falls for the crush card and he iliminates eight of her magic cards from her deck. But Ishizu has seen the future, and claims she has seen Kaiba's defeat, and that Obelisk will be his downfall. She secretly is fighting to save her brother from Yami Malik, the evil spirit who has taken control of her brother ever since Lishto was knocked out in the duel with Joey. But as Kaiba feels he has got the game won, she reveals her strategy:
    A card that switched the deck for the graveyard of both players. While her grave is very full of powerful monsters and magic cards, his grave only contains six cards. Can he win the duel in just six turns?


    94. Kaiba vs. the Future (2)

    Things look grim for Kaiba as he draws his first of only six cards remaining in his deck. Ishizu, however, activates a trap card that forces him to discard the card he drew. Kaiba serches for a way to use the cards in his hand to win, and realizes he has Obelisk and Soul Exchange. He waits for Ishizu to bring out three monsters, and then tributes them all for Obelisk.

    With nothing guarding her life points, it looks like an easy way to victory, but Ishizu isn't worried. She's seen the future, and in it is Kaiba's defeat. Unknown to him, one of the monsters he tributed for Obelisk has attached itself to him. If he calls for an attack, it will backfire against him, giving Ishizu the victory.

    Kaiba prepares to attack, but Yami Malik uses the Millennium Rod to stop him and force him to see images of his previous life as an egyptian priest. Part of the vision includes the stone tablet of the Blue EYes White Dragon. When Kaiba returns to the real world, he notices he has a Blue EYes in his hand.

    He tributes Obelisk and one other monster to summon his faithful monster before attacking and wiping out Ishizu's life points. But the attack was not seen in the future Ishizu saw, and she is stunned, but also glad the future is still unknown.

    Now she can still believe there is hope for Malik: That one of the finalists can beat the evil spirit and help her brother.


    95. The Grave Keeper's Secret

    Ishizu visits Yugi and his friends and explains to him how Malik aquired the evil spirit.

    After Malik was forced to undergo the custom ritual, he created a Yami self, an being composed of the anger and hatered Malik had for the people who had done this to him.

    One day, Malik managed to convince Ishizu to let him see the outside world, which was strictly forbidden to do. Ishizu and Lishto agree, so one morning, the two sneak outside.

    They wander around the village taking in the sights when they run into Shadi, who warns them of great danger. They quickly return home and find Lishto on the ground, beaten. Malik's father tells Malik that what he has done was very wrong, and that it is his turn to be punished when the Yami takes control of his body. He takes the Millennium Rod and uses it to kill their father. THen, he is about to kill Lishto when he wakes up and the regular Malik returns, unaware of what just happened.

    He asks who did this to his father, when Shadi appears, stating that is was the pharaoh who has brought this fate to the household. Malik then decided he must get revenge on the pharaoh for what he did.

    Ishizu finishes by giving Yugi the Millennium Necklace, as she can no longer use it's power.

    Meanwhile, Mokuba shows his brother the ancient egyptian pictures of Ra, and Kaiba is shocked to learn he can read the egyptian writing on the picture.

    Ishizu tells Yugi that when he puts all the Millennium Items back he will have to let Yami go. Yugi is upset about this, but doesn't let his alter ego see his sadness.

    Meanwhile, Malik takes over Tea once more and she returns Bakura's Millennium RIng to him, and he becomes possessed again. Yami Malik is about to kill Lishto again when Yami Bakura stops him.

    They agree to Shadow Duel and the looser will remain trapped in the shadow realm...forever...


    96. The Two Faces of Marik (1)

    As Yami Bakura and Yami Marik prepare to duel, everyone else aboard the vessel is fast asleep. Joey dreams that he is seeing Mai back on her feet, and as he heads toward her he sees her bound up by the Holding Arms and Holding Legs to the Stone of Ojark, as happened in her previous duel against Yami Marik. Joey wakes up in a cold sweat, madder than ever at Yami Marik.

    Meanwhile, Yami Marik laughs at the fact that even though Yami Bakura has the spirit Marik Ishtar backing him up, Yami Marik has switched most of the cards in his deck already. However, Yami Bakura is confident, as he has learned the secret of the Winged Dragon of Ra from Marik. This doesn't faze Yami Marik though, who only laughs and says that Yami Bakura will never be able to use the Winged Dragon of Ra.

    Marik steps in and says to Yami Marik that since a part of Marik's soul inhabited Tea for a small amount of time, he was able to hear the story Ishizu told Yugi and the gang, and says that though at first he thought it was Shadi that sent his father to the Shadow Realm, it was really Yami Marik, who was born right when Marik received the tomb keeper's initiation.

    Yami Marik shrugs it off, bringing them to the Shadow Realm with the Millennium Rod and begins his duel with Yami Bakura. Yami Bakura leads off the duel, setting one card face-down and play Terrifying Goblin Zombie (1100/1050) in attack mode, ending his turn. Yami Marik counters by setting one card face-down himself and playing Labravo (1600/1100) in attack mode and commanding it to attack the Goblin. However, Yami Bakura activates his face-down Trap card Fearful Earthbound, a continuous Trap that will decrease Yami Marik's Life Points by 500 every time Yami Marik attacks, and increase Yami Bakura's Life Points by 500 every time one of his monsters are destroyed. Yami Marik is not worried, though, as he activates Remove Trap and destroyed the Fearful Earthbound. Labravo then completes the attack, destroying the Goblin Zombie (B's LP: 3500)

    Yami Bakura watches in horror as a piece of his right arm fades away into the Shadow Realm, and Yami Marik takes the time to mention that in this Shadow Duel every time a duelist loses Life Points, he will also lose a small part of his body.

    Meanwhile, Yugi is asleep beside his Millennium Puzzle and his new Millennium Necklace when the Puzzle begins to glow, and Yugi finds himself within his own mind once again (he first did it in "Aftermath"). He leaves the small chamber of his mind and enters the large, complex chamber of Yami's mind, finding Yami and confiding in him that he is afraid of the great evils that threaten the earth. Yami mentions he still cannot unlock the secrets of his mind, but Yugi is confident that together, they can pull through.

    As Yami Marik and Yami Bakura continue their duel, Yami Bakura sets two cards face-down before summoning Girnia (1300/1200) in defense mode. At that, he ends his turn, saying that the Winged Dragon of Ra will soon be in his possession.

    Yami Marik remains confident and plays Card of Sanctity, causing both duelists to draw cards until their hands have six cards. After drawing, Yami Marik is frustrated that he still hasn't drawn the Winged Dragon of Ra, and Marik Ishtar tells Yami Bakura that he is perfectly safe from Ra. As Yami Bakura's turn begins, he plays Chasm of Destruction, causing both players to discard their hands and draw brand new ones. However, Yami Bakura loses 100 Life Points for every card he sends to the Graveyard (B's LP: 2900). Plus, monsters cannot attack the turn they are summoned. He then watches as his left arm begins to fade away.

    Confused at this tactic, Yami Marik sets one card face-down and ends his turn. Now Yami Bakura's turn once again, he sacrifices Girnia to summon Puppet Master (0/0), then activates its special effect, sacrificing 1000 Life Points (B's LP: 1900) in order to revive three monsters from his Graveyard to the field. As Yami Bakura's chest fades away into the shadows, the Earl of Demise (2000/700), Headless Knight (1400/1700), and Clown Zombie (1350/0) emerge on the field. Yami Marik realizes that reviving three weak monsters means he wants to use the Winged Dragon of Ra, but is still not worried.

    Yami Bakura then plays Dark Decimator, which allows him to send one card from Yami Marik's deck to his hand, thus taking the Winged Dragon of Ra and putting it in Yami Marik's hand. Then, Yami Bakura activates Exchange, so Yami Bakura takes the Winged Dragon of Ra from Yami Marik's hand and Yami Marik takes Monster Reborn from Yami Bakura's hand. Still, Yami Marik is not flustered.

    Excited that Yami Bakura has the Winged Dragon of Ra and at the chance of getting his body back, Marik is confident that it will be the Winged Dragon of Ra that will trap Yami Marik in the Shadow Realm forever.

    97. The Two Faces of Marik (2)

    As Yami Marik and Yami Bakura continue their Shadow Duel atop the KaibaCorp blimp, Tea awakes to find herself in Bakura's room. However, she is shocked to see that Bakura is gone. Tea figures that Yugi might know where he his, so she goes down the hall and over to Yugi's room. Yugi wakes up, and decides that it is possible Bakura and Marik could be dueling. Tea and Yugi go to the top of the blimp to see the dueling field covered in the purple fog of the Shadow Realm, and calling upon Yami, Yugi prepares to enter the looming fog.

    Meanwhile, Yami Marik and Yami Bakura's duel continues as Yami Bakura has lost most of his body and Yami Marik's Life Points are untouched. Yami Marik takes his turn by playing Vengeful Bog Spirit, a Magic card which prevents monsters from attacking the turn they are summoned. Ending his turn, Yami Marik is still confident that he will win.

    Marik Ishtar tells Yami Bakura to play the Winged Dragon of Ra, so Yami Bakura sacrifices the Earl of Demise, the Headless Knight, and the Clown Zombie, but as he does, Yami Marik activates his face-down card, Terror Strike, which saps the attack power of the three monsters and adds them to his Life Points (M's LP: 8550). Shocked and horrified, as The Winged Dragon of Ra (????/????) appears on the field, he finds it has 0 ATK. Switching it and his Puppet Master to defense mode, Yami Bakura reluctantly ends his turn.

    Yami Marik laughs at Yami Bakura and as has Labravo destroy Yami Bakura's Puppet Master, saying that the Winged Dragon of Ra is next. Marik Ishtar is worried, but Yami Bakura manages to keep his cool.

    Meanwhile, Kaiba is still working away at his computer, confused about the Winged Dragon of Ra. He can understand the text on the card, but does not know why. In addition, he knows there are several other effects the Winged Dragon of Ra has that are not written in the text. Figuring he must get the Winged Dragon of Ra as soon as possible, he thinks that once he has the Winged Dragon of Ra, Slifer will be an easy target.

    Yami Bakura begins his next turn by, in a shocking move, sacrificing the Winged Dragon of Ra to summon The Dark Ruler Ha Des (2450/1600) in attack mode. Yami Marik does not understand the tactic, but Yami Bakura mentions that Trap cards are useless against Egyptian God cards and that Magic cards only last one turn on Egyptian God cards. Therefore, the Winged Dragon of Ra is basically eliminated from the match, as if it is revived it will be only revived for one turn. Then, because of Vengeful Bog Spirit, it can't attack in the turn it is summoned, so it will have been completely useless.

    Yami Marik says that despite this, it will the Winged Dragon of Ra that will bring him victory, but Yami Bakura remains confident and sacrifices three monsters from his Graveyard to summon Dark Necrofear (2200/2800) in attack mode. He then plays Premature Burial and pays 800 Life Points (B's LP: 1100) in order to revive the Earl of Demise (2000/700) in attack mode. Since all three of his monsters were summoned that turn, he cannot attack and he ends his turn.

    Marik Ishtar gets angry at Yami Bakura, saying that he is being reckless with "our" Life Points. Yami Bakura argues that it is he in control, and not Marik. Yami Marik laughs that the two "partners" are arguing so much.

    Yami Marik says that this turn will be the last, as he plays Monster Reborn to revive The Winged Dragon of Ra (????/????). However, since no monsters were sacrificed to summon it, it has 0 ATK.

    Yami Bakura laughs and says that Yami Marik wants to lose, as the Winged Dragon of Ra can't even attack and will be destroyed next turn, as Monster Reborn will only last one turn. However, Yami Marik activates the Winged Dragon of Ra's special ability, Instant Attack, which allows it to attack in the same turn it was summoned. Marik, confused, thinks that he had known all of the Winged Dragon of Ra's abilities when he still had it, but is surprised to see this new one.

    Yami Marik then activates the Winged Dragon of Ra's second ability, Point-to-Point Transfer. Yami Bakura is confused to see that Yami Marik is fading away in the shadows, with just a portion of his head remaining. Yami Marik mentions that he paid all but one of his Life Points in order to enfuse the rest of his body with the Winged Dragon of Ra, increasing its power (M's LP: 1). Yami Bakura watches in horror as the Winged Dragon of Ra now has 8549 ATK/DEF, and Yami Marik commands the Egyptian God monster to destroy all of Yami Bakura's monsters (B's LP: 0). Yami Bakura then watches as the Winged Dragon of Ra strikes Marik Ishtar, trapping him in the Shadow Realm forever.

    As Yami Bakura fades away into the shadows, he laughs and says that even though he was defeated, he can never be destroyed, and he fades completely away, leaving the Millennium Ring behind.

    As the Shadow Realm fades away, Yami Marik picks up the Millennium Ring and sees Yami and Tea standing at the other end of the dueling field. Yami Marik mentions that Bakura is trapped in the Shadow Realm for eternity, then leaves. Yami, furious, leaves as well, and as Tea prepares to leaves, the portion of Marik Ishtar's soul that is still within her takes control, and sends her to Ishizu.

    As Yami Marik enters Odion's room again to send him to the Shadow Realm, he is furious to see Odion's bed empty. Blaming his sister, Yami Marik goes out for the hunt.

    Meanwhile, sitting in the labyrinth-like chambers of Yami's mind, is Yami Bakura. He says that he truly cannot be destroyed, as a part of him inhabits the Millennium Puzzle from when he transferred some of the power of the Millennium Ring into a piece of the Millennium Puzzle, back when Bandit Keith dueled Yugi.

    Mokuba awakes to find Kaiba still working on the computer, and says that he should get some rest for the rest of the tournament tomorrow. Kaiba says he is getting ready, and declares that the next destination is the dueling tower on KaibaCorp Island, where his and Mokuba's stepfather was last seen. He says the dueling tower represents the beginning of a new era for the Kaiba family - that he is the strongest duelist in the world and that it is his empire now.

  • 98. The Unknown Challenger - Giant Mobile Fortress Surfaces

    Morning dawns on the battle ship, but it isn't starting out to be a good day. Though the Alcatraz Duel Tower, the place where Kaiba had built a dueling tower in place of his foster father's military base after he died, is within distance, the blimp is acting funny.
    A boy named Noah has taken it over and has redirected it's destination to a large metal object floating in the ocean. The blimp lands inside and Noah, he is viewed from the screen in the blimp, "invites" Kaiba and "the other duelists" to get off the ship. Kaiba decides it's not safe and that he should go alone, but no sooner does he make the statement then the cannons begin firing at the blimp. Kaiba gets off, followed by Mokuba, Yugi, Joey, Tea, Triston, Duke, and Serenity. Yami Malik watches from the top of the blimp as Noah fires more cannons at the ship as more people attempt to get off. Kaiba and the others walk into a room where they see the figures of the former directors of Kaibacorp; the directors that attempted to trap Kaiba in the Virtual World. After Yami and Kaiba defeated them, they were trapped in the virtual world. They propose that each of them duel them in the virtual world and if they lose, then the member of the "Big 5" can switch places. They take over the loser's body and the loser must stay in Virutal Reality forever. They transport everyone to the virtual world where they wander around for a minute before another Kaiba walks out and he and another virtual person duel using the "Chief of the Card Set" rules. If the chief card, chosen by the dueler, is ever destroyed, then so is the dueler themselves, even if their life points are not 0. The 5 return them to the real world to see their response, but point out that they really have no choice. If they refuse, they can never leave. That, they inform the group, is their revenge...

    -REEDITTED BY JACK LIN


    NOTE: Note to the summary: Although the subtitles say it is the "Cheif of Card Set" the Japanese voices actually say, "Deck Master."

    99. Deck Master - Deep Sea Warrior (1)

    Everyone accepts the dueling challenge and are transported to the virtual reality world in different places. Yugi finds himself alone in the middle of the forest, Tea in the middle of the dessert, Duke and Triston in a corridor, Serenity by the lake, Joey in a castle, and Kaiba and Mokuba in another part of the forest.

    Yugi finds one of the Big 5 members dressed as the Deep-Sea Warrior. He challenges Yugi and Yami takes over to accept. Cards appear before him and the Deep-Sea Warrior instructs him to choose his deck-cards and one Cheif Card.

    As Yami is browsing through his choices, he decides to choose the Dark Magician as his cheif card, but Kuriboh pops out instead!

    Stuck with Kuriboh, one of the weakest creatures in the game, Yami begins the duel.

    Meanwhile, Kaiba and Mokuba find a door in the forest. Considering it an exit, they open it, to find the orphanage where they grew up. They watch as parts of their past begin to play by them.

    Tea wanders around the dessert for a while, until she meets up with a crew of Hitopsume Giants, who take her captive.

    Back at the duel, Yami is informed that for every attack given to him, the brain will consider it real and the players will feel pain. If attacked too many times, regardless of life points, the player will die.


    100. The Scary Regeneration Combo (2)

    Yami continues the duel with Kimara, the Flying Mythic Beast and the Retained Celtic Guardian on his side. His opponent, the Deep-Sea warrior, has done little but defend the entire game.

    But as he calls an attack on the opponents life points, he activates a special Cheif of Card Set ability which shoots Yami's monsters back at him!

    Weakened from the various attacks, Yami begins to wonder how he can win this duel.

    Meanwhile, Duke and Triston, tired from running down an endless corridor, spot an ax and decide to chop their way through the wall. As Triston picks it up, however, Duke wonders how he is able to touch it in virtual world, as before, Tea couldn't hold the flowers in the demo.

    Seto and Mokuba are still watching images of their past. They watch as the young Mokuba is sitting on a swing in an empty park. Young Seto comes and tells his brother that they should go back.

    Mokuba explains that he was there because he remembered visiting there with their parents, and that he hoped he could bring things back the way they used to.

    His brother tells him that there isn't much good in crying, and that Mokuba shouldn't worry because he'll always be there to take care of him.

    While the two Kaiba brothers watch on, Joey is banging his way around the castle looking for one of the five to duel. As he shouts out that he has better things to do than waste time waiting for a duel, he remembers Mai, and how he needs to beat Malik in order to save her.

    Back at the duel, the Deep-Sea Warrior appears to have the upper hand, as Yami begins to get weak from all the attacks, but he mangages to find a way to reduce the warriors life points.

    But with so many rules and catches he doesn't know, can he win the duel and keep Yugi's body safe from the 5?


    101. The Rainbow Arch Strikes Back (3)

    Yami is cornered with no way out of a direct attack that will surely kill him, but as he falls to the ground, he manages to have the strength to get back up again.

    The warrior is surprised, but doesn't really care. Yami's life points stand at 400, and he is confident that he will win.

    Meanwhile, Duke and Triston chop their way through the walls and find themselves on the roof of a castle. They look down at the field below and spot Serenity, running away from a Mad Sword Beast.

    Triston jumps off the castle roof and onto the beast while Duke runs and gets Serenity out of the way. As Triston climbs out a river where he led the beast, he sees that Duke has already taken the credit for Serenity's rescue.

    Seto and Mokuba watch as the young Seto challenges the owner of Kaibacorp, and 6 time champion chess player, Kazoboro Kaiba to a game of chess. If he wins, he and Mokuba become his adopted sons.

    As they watch from outside through a window, the real Mokuba remembers that after that game of chess, Seto never was happy again. He runs over to the door, in an attempt to change the past and keep his brother the way he used to be.

    Seto tries to convince Mokuba that this isn't the past that it's just an illusion, but Mokuba opens the door anyway and starts to fall down a large hole.

    Seto grabs him just in time and after pulling him to safety calls out to Noa, who is watching every move they make, asking him what he is after.

    Noa doesn't answer, just smiles, and Seto and Mokuba walk away in the forest to find an exit.

    Tea wakes up in a large cave and spots Hitopsume Giants down at the bottom, boiling a kettle of water. Getting the feeling they're preparing for dinner, and not wanting to be main course, Tea spots a penguin who has drapped a vine down.

    She starts to climb up, but makes a noise that alerts the giants. She runs out of the cave after reaching the top, but meets a dead end. Either cross the shakey bridge over a long drop, or face the giants.

    She starts to walk across, but the giants attempt to follow and the bridge snaps in two. Luckily, Tea was on the side that will lead her to safety and begins to climb up to the top.

    Back at the duel, Yami realizes the power of Kuriboh and he combines it with the Rainbow Card to form a bridge directly over to the Deep Sea Warrior's life points.

    Using Gai, he marches across the bridge and destroys the Deep-Sea Warrior and his remaining life points.

    Yami thanks Kuriboh, who dissappears, and Yami heads off to find Tea and the others, before they are challenged by the remaining 4...


    102. A Duel on Ice - Anzu Under Attack (1)

    Tea collapses after reaching the top of the bridge and looks up at the sky. As she gazes upwards, she notices a peguin. She follows the penguin to a raft in an icy river.

    She gets on and is led to a large hallway. There, she spots what must be the lead peguin, and also another member of the 5. The Penguin points out that Tea is not a very good environmentalist and tells her all the terrible things she has done, like littering and forgetting to turn off the lights, which harm the penguins.

    Tea tries to run away, but is caught up on a large ice block which rises up. The penguin rises up on another and challenges her to duel.

    After Tea chooses her deck, she fishes through her cards to find a Cheif. She chooses the Dark Magician Girl, as she remembers how she wanted to play that role in a play someday when she grows up.

    But as the Penguin starts to question her choice, Tea realizes she forgot to put a Dark Magician in her deck, making Dark Magician Girl not a very helpful monster.

    Tea ingnores this and draws her opening hand. Meanwhile, Yugi is running desperately to get to Tea before she is challenged. Noa is alerted to this and decides to put Yugi in a maze.

    Yugi and Yami run through the maze as Tea's voice echoes in their ears asking them to help her.

    Back at the duel, Tea plays a monster in attack mode and Mirror Force face down.

    The Penguin begins his turn with Cold Wave, which forbids any magic or trap cards to be played or activated for one turn. Then, he attacks her monster with a water monster, that gets a power boost from himself, as he is the Cheif of his card set.

    As Tea looses life points, her feet freeze to the ground. The Penguin explains that for every life points lost, part of themselves will freeze.

    Tea shivers and the Penguin comments that she ought to buy better clothes next time she goes shopping. She ignores the penguin and draws a fire monster.

    She plays it which heats her and the Dark Magician Girl up. Then, she attacks the penguin directly. But on the Penguin's next turn, the fire girl is destroyed and Tea's feet freeze again.

    The Dark Magician Girl holds her hand for encouragement, but even with her support, can Tea win before she freezes to death?


    103. Shine! Wiseman's Jewel (2)

    Seto and Mokuba are walking through the forest and spot a cabin on a hill. They decide to rest and open the door cautiously, remembering what happened back at the last illusion.

    After opening the door, the cabin transforms into their house, but years earlier. They see themselves, years younger, walking through the house. They both recognize it as the day they were adopted...

    ... on the day they were adopted, they were taken to Kaiba's house where Seto got to start long and tiring school lessons. The people teaching him said he had to catch up with Kaiba if he ever wanted to be the owner of Kaibacorp.

    That evening at dinner, Kaiba asked Seto what he wanted to
    do when he became the owner of Kaibacorp. Seto responded
    that he wanted to build a paradise and Mokuba adds that
    Seto wants to build something like a Disney Land for kids
    like them who don't have anything.

    Kaiba thinks this idea is ridiculous and says that games
    are stupid. Seto is outraged by this and says that games
    are great and pure. Kaiba then tells his employee to take
    all Seto and Mokuba's games and toys away.

    That night, Seto goes to his room to rest before his
    lessons start in 1 hour! (the people said he didn't have
    time for sleep!) Mokuba is standing out in the hallway and
    hands someone a book and tells them to give it to his
    brother.

    The person gives Seto the book and when he opens it, he
    finds duel monster cards in a hole in the book. Mokuba said
    that they should keep him company since the brothers have
    two different rooms. They are all weak monsters except for
    a drawing on notebook paper of a Blue Eyes White Dragon.
    Seto vows that someday, he'll get the real Blue Eyes White
    Dragon...

    Noa then appears and Seto demands to know why he is showing them this. Noa responds that he just wants it fresh in their memory, and that Seto will get it for what he has done. Seto ask what Noa means but Noa laughs and disappears.

    Back at Tea's duel, she draws a card and plays it in defense mode. Freezing, she ends her turn. The penguin attacks her defense and then attacks her directly with a torpedo penguin.

    Meanwhile, Yugi and Yami have figured out the secret to the maze and that they must use one of their monsters and run through each of the four doors before they can find Tea.

    At the last door, the four star door, Yugi picks up the Dark Magician, one of the last cards in his duel tray he hasn't used.
    Yami tells him not to use the Magician yet, so Yugi chooses four star lady-bug of doom, and destroys the mosnter.

    They run through and end up behind a thick sheet of glass facing Tea's duel. Yugi tries to break through, but can't and realizes they are too late to help. Yami tells him that he believes in the Dark Magician Girl, and that she will help Tea.

    Tea plays Maha Vailo, and powers him up to 2550. But he is destroyed and this shatters Tea's last bit of hope. Then, the penguin attacks her directly again and plays a 2450 defense monster.

    Tea looses faith in herself but the Dark Magician Girl summons herself to the field claiming she can use her powers to win. But Tea tells the Magician Girl that she has no dark Magician to help her with.

    Dark Magician Girl then uses her powers as Cheif of Card Set. This allows Tea to draw cards up to the number of monsters in her graveyard.

    Tea draws The Stone of the Supieror and plays it, which allows Dark magician Girl to call her master, Dark Magician. Since Yugi had not played him yet, the Dark Magician is summoned from his duel disk out to Tea's field and the force shatters the ice wall behind which he was trapped.

    Tea attack and wins the duel. Then, she blacks out. She wakes up later with Yugi beside her, and she hugs him, thanking him for rescuing her.


    104. Deck Master - The Judgement of Judge Man (1)

    Joey is still wandering around the castle looking for a duel when, frustrated, he kicks the wall, which promptly collapses. Behind it, is a door, which Joey opens and finds himself back at the hanger where the Battle Ship is.

    Overjoyed at being free of the Virtual World, he boards the ship and searches for the others. He finds no one, but notices that Mai's door is open. Sadly, he walks inside and sees her, still asleep.

    He vows that he will defeat Malik, and let her awaken, when all of the sudden, she does wake up!

    She sits up, but as a stunned Joey asks her if she's really okay, she replies in a deep voice and turns into one of the Big 5. He apologizes for scaring Joey like that and challenges him to a duel.

    Joey accepts, determined to make him pay for making Joey think Mai was alright. The room transforms into a court room and Joey is standing in the accussed chair. The man turns into the Judge Man, and announces that this will be his Cheif Card.

    Joey chooses the Flame Swordsman, knowing he can trust him. The Swordsman appears, and tells Joey that his special ability is raising warrior monsters attack power by giving them bits of his own.

    The duel begins and the Judge Man plays Hysteric Angel in attack mode. Joey counters with Gearfried, and raises it's attack power by 500 with the special effect of the Flame Swordsman. He destroys the angel.

    The Judge Man defends, and Joey destroys the defense with Gearfried and has his Feather Warrior attack directly. The man then plays Mystic Elf in defense.

    Joey attempts an attack, but the man activates the Judge Man's special ability, Death Sentence, which destroys all of Joey's monsters on the field at the cost of 1000 life points.

    The man then fuses Mystical Elf with another creature to form a very weak fusion. After activating a magic card that allows 800 life points to return to the owner of a fusion monster when it gives damage to the opponent.

    The man's life points raise to 1000 and Joey's drop to 2700. Meanwhile, Tea and Yugi and walking around the artic world. Yugi lends Tea his jacket as they walk through the freezing weather for the others.

    Duke, Triston, and Serenity are also milling about while Kaiba and Mokuba recieve yet another flashback. Young Seto in angry with K. Kaiba because he is using Seto's inventions, originally created for pleasure and fun, for warfare.

    Seto is upset with this and demands that K. Kaiba stop, but K. just has his guards drag Seto out of the room without speaking to him.

    Back at the duel, Joey attempts to use Graceful Dice, and at first it lands on a six, but changes strangely to a 1, doing nothing for Joey's monster.

    Is there any way for Joey to beat the Judge Man, or has Joey's luck finally run out?


    105. Gamble to Victory (2)

    The duel between Joe and Big 3 still continues. Being cornered after Big 3's counterattack, Joe aims to turn things around in his favor by using "Devil's Die" and "Angel's Die" but fails.
    The next thing at Joe's hand is a trap card called "Gamble." This card becomes activated once there are minimum of 6 and 2 cards at hands of the opponent and the player respectively. The player is allows to guess heads or tails of a coin. If he guesses right, he gets to draw until he has 5 cards at hand. If he guesses wrong, he misses his next turn. This is the last chance for Joe because he is in a real fix of not having cards or monsters. Would this gamble get Joe out of the woods?


    106. Tristan's Suicidal Attack (1)

    Now there are only two opponents left, as 3 out of Big Fives are defeated. The mysterious boy Noah's next target is a trio of Tristan, Serenity, and Duke. Still wondering in the virtual realm, they open a door that floats above field. Behind the door is a place that is much like a factory. There they find Big 4 waiting. He is Ota Soichiro the former manager of Kaiba factory for military equipments.
    Big 4 challenges the three to have a 3:1 duel with him. Tristan and Duke defend an inexperienced Serenity and declare to have 2:1 duel. But since Big 4 is after all three bodies, he does not allow Serenity to withdraw from the game. It is then Serenity accepts the challenge and joins the duel.
    Big 4's deck-master is "Mechanic Sergeant." Using its special deck-master attack called "Backup bombardment," Big 4 attacks each player and reduces their life powers by 500 per machine-type monster card that has discarded from the hand. In addition, Serenity becomes an easy target since she doesn't know the rules to duel.


    107. St Joan's Trinity Attack (2)

    Joey, Yugi, and Tea are running through the cave when Serenity's shrill cry sounds through the cave. Joey runs ahead, toward the sound of his sister. Yugi and Tea follow.

    Serenity falls to the floor and starts to cry. Duke tries to get her to take her turn, but she's lost in her own mind, and shocked at Triston's sacrifice.

    The Machine tells Duke to take his turn instead, so Duke plays Dimension Hole, making his Machine Dark Assailent disappear and then tributes his Yoronzo and 13th grave for Orgoth, the Relentless.

    Then, he plays Dice Field and Dungeon Dice. Orgoth and Machine King are transported to the dice field where the players must role the die to determine the moves.

    Since dice is Duke's specialty, he rolls and manages a six, which doubles his attack power. The Machine man roles a one, lowering his attack by 1000.

    Duke attacks with Orgoth and destroys the monster. The machine man summons himself to the field and recalls why he hates Seto Kaiba so much.

    After being forced to destroy his own machine factory, Kaiba ordered a duel tower to be build, and told the man the only thing he needed to do was not get underfoot during construction.

    Humiliated and angered by this, the man is determined to get revenge on Kaiba for what he did.

    They are transported to the dice field where Duke rolls a one and he rolls a two. The Machine Man defeats Duke's Orgoth and Dungeon Dice disappears.

    Serenity's turn approaches again and despite Duke's efforts to make her get up, she simply sits there with a blank face. Duke finally tells her to remember what Triston told her about duel monsters.

    Serenity remembers on the train to Battle City, Triston had been explaining rules like tributing for 5 stars and over, and how to fuse monsters with polymerazation.

    Right on cue, Joey bursts in and calls down to his sister. Serenity looks up and smiles. Duke explains to Yugi and Tea what happened, and Joey offers to play in Serenity's place.

    The Machine Man says he cannot allow them to do that, and that Serenity must play. Joey then tells Serenity, like she watches his duels, he'll watch hers.

    Serenity stands up and Tributes one of her monsters for the Fallen Angel. Then, The Goddess of Third Eye, her cheif, tells her she can subsititute for a fusion card as long as Serenity puts one card in the grave.

    Serenity does this and fuses to form a new monster with an ATK of 2800. Duke activates his Cheif card's special effect, to turn over and activate the face down card of Triston's.

    It raises the fused monster's attack power enough to destroy the Machine Man. The Machine Man already has a body though, so it doesn't matter, he calls out to them before he vanishes.

    Joey leaps down and runs over to Serenity, who breaks down and starts crying. Joey hugs her in an attempt to comfort her, and Yugi points out that Triston is still in virtual world somewhere, so they must go find him.

    At the same time, in another part of the world, a small robotic monkey wakes up...


    108. Kidnapped Mokuba - Kaiba vs. Jinzo (1)

    Okay, the episode (the first part) begins where Ota, (The
    big 5 memeber who has taken over Triston) attacks Kaiba
    using Triston's body and kidnaps Mokuba.

    He jumps on a motorcycle and rides away, and Kaiba of
    course finds a motorcycle and follows him.

    However, he looses the trail (his motorcycle crashes) and
    he runs into Jinzo, who says he cannot pass until he duels.
    So Kaiba agrees.

    Jinzo starts with one monster in defense mode. Kaiba
    attacks on his turn with the "Spear Dragon" which does
    damage even if the monster is in defense mode. The monster
    in defense turned out to be "Hiro's Shadow Scout" which
    forces Kaiba to draw out three cards, and any magic cards
    among them are discarded, so Kaiba must discard one card
    I'd never seen, and "Virus-Eliminating Cannon."

    On Jinzo's next turn, he plays defense and a card face
    down, which Kaiba finds odd as Spear Dragon must go into
    defense mode after attacking, and his defense is zero.

    Kaiba plays "Giant Germ" in attack mode and switches Spear
    Dragon to attack mode. He then orders and attack, but the
    card face down activates, putting a strange mask on Kaiba.
    Kaiba then must choose his attack target, but the mask
    confuses him and he ends up attacking his own Giant Germ.

    He is allow to draw out another Giant Germ, due to the
    effect, and ends his turn. Jinzo simply plays another
    card, "Solemn Wishes" which allows him to gain 500 life
    points each time he draws a card, and ends his turn. Kaiba attacks, but it turns out to be Cyber Jar.

    Cyber Jar destroyed all the monsters on the field and Jinzo
    summoned out Lily, the Injection Angel and Kaiba summons
    Blood Vorse and Doldra.

    Lily only has 400 attack power, so Kaiba feels it was silly
    to let it stay in attack mode, so he attacks with Doldra.
    Jinzo activates the special ability of Lily, sacrificing
    2000 lp to raise her attack power to 3400. Doldra is
    destroyed, and Kaiba's lp is reduced, but he activates
    Doldra's special ability, which allows it to be returned to
    the field in defense mode with it's attack and defense set
    at 1000.

    Jinzo takes his turn and taunts Kaiba about his V. reality
    system still being used for war. Kaiba ignores this and
    Jinzo plays a magic card which reduces the selected monster
    by it's level x 100. Therefore, Blood Vorse is reduced to
    1500. (-400)

    He then activates Life Squeezer, which allows him to take
    back any life points that he spent last turn.

    Kaiba takes his turn and I believe he plays Giant Trunade,
    but Jinzo activates Imperial Order, which negates all magic
    cards at the cost of 700 life points per turn. Kaiba then
    switches Blood Vorse to defense mode and ends his turn.

    Jinzo sacrifices his defense monster to play "Satilite
    Cannon" which appears up in the outer space of the Virtual
    Reality world. No monster with an level lower than eight
    and no monster that cannot fly can attack it.

    And as the first part ends, the satilite cannon locks onto
    Kaiba...


    109. Attack From Space - Satellite Cannon (2)

    I forgot to mention in the last ep. summary, that Noa found
    Mokuba and took him back to his "place." The two are
    watching the duel from one of Noa's TV screens.

    So Kaiba takes his turn and tries to defend from Lily.
    Every turn, Jinzo will continue to get back life points to
    use for Lily's attack, so it's useless to try and attack
    her with anything below 3400.

    Kaiba plays one defense monster and ends his turn.

    Meanwhile, Yugi and his friends and riding in some old
    truck Joey has found and they're riding down the same
    highway that Kaiba and Jinzo are dueling on.

    Jinzo goes into the whole flashback of the year-long test
    when Seto was a kid.
    As Mokuba looks on, Jinzo tells Seto a story to refresh his memory of past events.

    Okay, on Seto's birthday one year, he was given as a present a test. (What IS it with these Yugioh! people and these life-changing birthday presents??!!) He and Mokuba would each recieve two shares of Kaibacorp. Seto had to get more than half of the shares of Kaibacorp by his birthday the next year and then he would become the successor.

    Seto went to all lengths to win, because K. Kaiba was using his own inventions for evil, to hurt people. Seto had to stop him. He succeeded in secretly turning the Big 5 against K., but someone told K. what had happened and Seto blamed Mokuba! (This is where I think things get a bit far-fetched)

    Seto told Mokuba to stop getting in his way, so Mokuba went to K. Kaiba's side for the battle.
    On Seto's birthday the next year, Seto has 49% of the shares, K. 51%, but just as they are about to call Seto the looser, Mokuba breaks in. He explains two percent of the shares are his to use, and he chooses to give them to Seto, switching the scores and giving Seto the victory.
    *
    Also, Mokuba doesn't believe that his brother would use
    him, although Noa keeps trying to get him to think that.
    (This is where I get stuck. Is it true that he used him? Or
    was he mistaken?)

    Anyway, Jinzo activates the Satilite cannon's effect, which
    destroys the monster Seto played into defense mode.

    Yugi and his friends arrive just as the cannon hits the
    monster. It causes a major explosion, but Seto doesn't
    really get hurt by it. (i think that last thing was just to
    make the cliff-hanger even worse for the viewers.)

    Lily then destroys Blood Vors. Kaiba takes his turn and
    plays a new monster. (I'm sorry, I forget the name) He
    manages to power the monster up to 3200, but Jinzo thinks
    this is ridculous, as Lily still destroys it.

    But as Kaiba looses 200 lp, he laughs. Lily costs 2000 lp
    EACH time a monster attacks her, so now, with less than
    2000 lp left, Jinzo cannot activate her special effect,
    leaving her very vulnerable to Doldra's attack.

    Kaiba wipes out lily, but the Satilite Cannon is still a
    problem. It destroys Doldra, and despite Seto's open lp,
    Jinzo plays Dreamsprite in defense mode.

    Kaiba summons a fire-type monster and attacks Dreamsprite,
    but Jinzo activates her ability; transfer the attack order
    to another monster on the field, namely the Satilite Cannon
    that cannot be attacked by any monster lower than 8 stars.

    Kaiba takes his next turn and starts with Pot of Greed. He
    draws two more cards and plays a monster in attack mode.
    Then, he activates the Lord of Dragons special ability as
    the Cheif of Card set; pay 500 life points to summon a
    dragon type monster to the field.

    Kaiba sacrifices his two monsters for his Blue Eyes, and
    it, having both 8 stars and the ability to fly, destroys
    the Satilite Cannon and the remainder of Jinzo's life
    points.

    Kaiba rushes over to Jinzo and demands to know what
    happened to Mokuba, but Jinzo replies he doesn't know and
    dissappears into the atmosphere.

    Noa asks why Mokuba is so happy Kaiba won, when he betrayed
    him before. Mokuba says he doesn't care about that, and
    that he just wants to help his brother.

    Back with Kaiba, he just looks up into the sky and calls
    out Mokuba's name...


    110. Ever Intensifying Mystery of Noa's True Identity

    Seto looks for Mokuba and sees a tunnel. He follows it and Tea and Yugi rush after him. Joey and Duke debate whether to go or not, but decide too late, as the door to the portal closes, leaving them, along with Serenity and Monkey-Triston alone on the bridge.

    Inside the tunnel, Seto runs madly after the fading voice of his brother. Then, he sees a light in one side of the wall and sees Noa and Mokuba.

    Noa tells Seto that K. Kaiba has him try to defeat Seto because Noa wanted an opponent, someone he could compete against. If he can beat Seto, he will be the rightful heir to Kaibacorp.

    Seto ignores this, walks past Noa and takes Mokuba's hand and starts to lead him out, but Mokuba slaps Seto's hand away and tells him he isn't going with him. He's staying with Noa, his brother!

    Seto is angry at Noa, because he knows he brainwashed him change Mokuba. Meanwhile, Yugi and Tea run down the tunnel, but end up in front of the Kaiba Mansion. They enter and hear a baby crying.

    Yugi wonders if they have gone back in time to when Seto was a baby, but that can't be, as Seto was adopted at the age of 10. Yugi then finds a dusty photo, which shocks him. He carries it with him and he and Tea soon find Seto.

    He shows the picture to Seto who finds it shocking as well, as Noa and K. Kaiba are in the photo, but K. looks younger! And earlier, Noa looked the same in another photo, but K. was older! How can Noa stay the same but others age?

    Seto doesn't get his answer, as Noa leaves, taking Mokuba with him.


    111. Revenge of the Big Five (1)

    Kaiba is going to go search for Mokuba but tells Yugi and his friends that it's not there busness and to stay out. Tea gets in front of Kaiba's way and tells him: "Mokuba is our friend and we worry about our friends!"
    Then Tristan's body apears behind them. Kaiba: "Then you should worry about him." and then he leaves. Tristan's body (which is being controlled by all the big five) chalenges Yugi to a duel. The STAKES: If Yugi wins they give Tristan's body back if he loses everyones body will become theirs!
    Yugi accepts but Joey says that it's unfair to have a 5 against 1 duel so he wants to play too. The big five agree if they get 8000 life points and Joey and Yugi only get 4000.
    When they are picking their cards again Joey picks Harpie Lady and many of Mai's cobonations to remember her.
    The game begins with the Deep Sea worrior playing for the big five. The Deep sea worrior plays the field card Atlantis which lowers a star on every water card so if it was a 5 star monster it would be a four star so you could play it with out a sacrafice. The deep sea worrior plays The Legenday fisherman which hides under water. Yugi and Joey stick to playing defence for a while: Joey plays Alagator sword in Def and Yugi plays Gazzle the king of mythical beasts in def. When it gets back to the Deep sea worriors turn the big five start arguing again to let somone else take over for dueling so the Pengiun Nightmare takes over (he increases water monsters) and plays Catapult turtle in defence and has the legendary fisherman attack Gazzle the king of mithical beasts. On Joeys turn Joey plays Harpie Lady SB in attack mode and switches Alagator sword into attack mode and then plays a card face down. On Yugi's turn he plays the Mystical elf in defence.
    On Penguin Nightmares turn they start arguing again but the Penguin gets another turn. The Penguin Nightmare plays a defence monster and has the Legendary fisherman attack the Mystical elf but Joey uses Cuni with Chain. Then Joey starts telling the penguin that "This isn't a duel all I hear is Yugi this Yugi that! What about me?" On Joey's Turn he plays Harpie's feather duster which gets rid of Atlantis! Then Joey has Harpie lady attack the legendary fisherman and Alagator sword attack his other defence which turns out to be the Magician of Faith! So the Penguin gets Atlantic back in his hand! On Yugi's turn Yugi plays Kuriboh in Defence and plays Card destruction sending Atlantic once again to the grave! Tea, Duke, Serenity, and Tristan-Monkey are standing there when Tea notices that Tristan is starting to sound like a monkey. Tristan gets very upset at this "Oh no I never noticed that, I'm turning into a monkey!!!"
    While all this is going on Kaiba is walking around looking for Mokuba and Noah when he spots Kabia Land.


    112. Target: Joey - Victory in Teamwork (2)

    Kaiba walks to his Virtual Kaibaland building. The door is locked by a chessboard. Kaiba looks at it, takes one move and checkmates the other side. The door is unlocked and Kaiba walks inside. He is shown a movie of Gozaburo and Noa together, as well as Noa's funeral.

    As of yet, no one's life points have been dented. The Big 5 in "Tristan" still have their 8000 life points while Yugi and Joey both hold their 4000. After some discussion, Big-3 switches over into Tristan's body, allowing his deck-master Judge Man to come out. He pays the 1000 life points (Big-5: 7000) to remove Yugi's Mystical Elf and Kuriboh as well as Joey's Cyber Harpie and Alligator Sword from the game. 1000 damage is done to both of them (since they each had two monsters out on the field.). (Yugi: 3000, Joey: 3000). After deciding to focus on removing Joey first, he then plays Hysteric Angel in attack mode (attack: 1800) and attacks Joey directly. (Joey: 1200). Then he loads the Angel onto the Catapult Turtle to launch it at him and do 900 damage to him. (Joey: 300). To end his turn, Big-3 places one card face down and plays a Magic Card that resembles an Altar.

    Joey's turn comes up. He draws and plays the Rocket Warrior in attack mode, and then activates the Flame Swordsman's Deck-Master ability to reduce the Swordsman by 1000 attack points and raise the Rocket Warrior by that amount (attack: 2500). He then attacks the Catapult Turtle and destroys it. But then Big-3 activates his face-down card: a Magic card that allows him to sacrifice the Rocket Warrior to summon his own monster: Machine King.

    After some thinking, Yugi Special Summons a Rock Spirit by removing Buster Blader (an Earth-type) from his Graveyard. He then sacrifices it to summon Death Volstargaf in attack mode (attack: 2200) and places the Mirror Force trap down. However, it is extremely obvious to Big-3 that the fact down card is a trap (a fact that Joey tries to warn Yugi about), but Big-4 wants to play. So after switching, he plays Heavy Storm to destroy it (but not destroying the Altar card). He then attacks the Volstargaf. The other members of the Big-5 try to warn him, but Big-1 has fallen into Yugi's real trap. The Volgstarf destroys the Machine King. Yugi explains that every time a Magic card is played, the Volgstarf gets a 200 point bonus (attack:2400). Volstargaf also does 500 more damage when it destroys a monster, leaving the Big-5's life points now at 6400.

    Joey draws and gets a Panther Warrior, but since he doesn't' have any additional monsters to sacrifice for it to attack, he plays it in defense mode and lays a trap card down. Yugi then draws, attacks Big-4 directly with the Volstargaf (The Big-5: 4200), and places a Big Shield Gardna in defense mode.

    The Big-5 pull another switch. After "Tristan" draws, Joey tries to activate his trap Drop Off, but it gets destroyed because the person inside of Tristan's body is now Big-5 (with his deck master Jinzo, negating and destroying all opponent's traps). Big-5 then plays Pot of Greed, allowing him to draw two cards: Sebek's Blessing and Gravity Bind, but it also raises Volstargaf's attack to 2400. Big-5 then plays Injection Fairy Lily and pays the 2000 life points to make her attack 3400 in the damage step after attacking the Volstargaf. (The Big-5: 2200 Yugi: 2000). Big-5 then chains with Sebek's Blessing from his hand, allowing him to gain the damage he did to Yugi to his own life points (The Big 5: 3200), and then plays the Gravity Bind card face down.

    Joey's turn comes up, but Big-5 activates his Gravity Bind trap. Joey chuckles and summons HIS OWN Jinzo, destroying the Gravity Bind trap. He wants to target Lily, but is aware that Big-5 could still use her effect. With a little help from Yugi, Joey realizes that Lily can only use her effect if she's in attack mode. He then uses Block Attack to switch her to defense mode and destroys her with Jinzo. Yugi's turn comes up. He sacrifices the Gardna to summon his Dark Magician Girl and attacks Big-5 directly (Big 5: 1200).

    Big-5's turn comes up. He draws and starts laughing maniacally, because the card he drew is...


    113. Defeat It! Mythic Dragon! (3)

    Yugi & Joey VS big 5 continues. In the third turn Big 5 activates a "Misty Altar" to initiate a ritual to revive an evil dragon. This ritual requires sacrificial monsters of five attributes, the earth, water, fire, wind, and darkness from either the field or hand. Completion of this process takes up to 5 turns. "Our victory was decided when this monster was summoned," Big 5 says and summons a "Five-God Dragon" using the five deck masters. The Five-God Dragon is a mighty monster with attack points of 5000. Yugi & Joey are soon put in a tight spot. Cornered Joey summons a deck master the Flame Swordsman and leaves the rest to Yugi, who in turn summons a deck master the Black Magician. They also unite the deck masters and summon "the Black Flare Knight" with attack points of 2200. Making an attack against the Five-God Dragon with the Black Flare Knight seems suicidal. But.


    114. Noa Vs. Seto - Duel of the Creators (1)

    Joey is shaking monkey Tristan, who is upset, believing his must remain a monkey forever. Duke finds a secret pannel on the back of the monkey's back, and inside are 6 buttons.

    Joey presses one, and the monky sprouts wheels and starts racing around them. Duke presses another, and the monkey sprouts propellers and begins zooming around Yugi, Tea, and Serenity.

    Meanwhile, Seto has found Kaibaland, and walks inside to find a railroad track. As if to "welcome" him, as Seto puts it, a BEWD train comes by and Seto boards it.

    Yugi finally presses the Red Button and the monkey goes into Emergency Mode, (which is not Tristan at all) it leads them straight to Kaibaland.

    Meanwhile, Seto has reached an odd lava-world, and steps out of the train onto a piece of rock. Noa is waiting for him on another rock surrounding the lava.

    Seto tells Noa that he found out the truth; that Noa is dead. Noa realizes that Seto saw the clip, and meanwhile, Yugi and his friends are watching it themselves.

    Noa explains the situation to Seto. That when Noa was young, he was being trained to be a sucessor of Kaibacorp, but was hit by a car and was killed.

    K. Kaiba put Noa's mind into a Virtual Computer, and transfered all his memories there. Noa woke up thinking everything had been a dream, but when he can't open his door, a screen pops up and K. Kaiba is there.

    Noa asks his father to let him out, but K. explains that Noa is dead, and must live in the computer world now. Noa isn't too happy to find out he has died already, but he sees a cat on the floor, and pets it.

    Noa explained that the VW was slowly expanded, but it was still virtual, and the people were limited. (For example, the hot dog vender never said anything to him other than, "Hello, Master Noa, what would you like?)

    He made adjustments to the V world to make it more life like (too life-like. His cat got really wild and he had to put a muzzle on it!), and also figured out plans for his father, but he wasn't interested in listening.

    Then, Seto and Mokuba were adopted. Noa explains that everything Seto did was just so someday he would compete with Noa.

    Seto can't believe that everything he has acomplished was just for someone else, and tells Noa to start the duel.

    Meanwhile, Yugi and his friends discover the tracks. (Tristan turns back into Triston-Monkey again)
    Triston scurries down the tracks and finds a little train-car equip with a handle-bar that Joey and Duke begin pumping to make it go.

    However, they go too fast, and when Tea suggests the brake, Joey admits he has broken the brake! So they speed away down the tracks and are deposited on another rock near where the duel is begining.

    Seto appoints a reptile monster as his Deck Master and plays Giant Germ in attack mode, and the Crush Card face down. Noa summons a warrior monster, uses it's effect to destroy the Crush, and then takes down the germ.

    Although Seto loses some life points, Noa loses 500 due to Giant Germ's effect, and Seto is allowed to summon out another Giant Germ.

    He sacrifices it for Vampire Lord and attacks Noa's warrior. It is destroyed, and due to Vampire Lord's special ability, Noa must give up one card from his deck of Seto's choosing, and his chooses monster card.

    Noa discards the Giant Soldier of Stone. He then plays Fissure to destory the vampire, and attacks Seto directly with another warrior monster reducing him to 1400.

    Seto activates Vampire Lord's second ability, allowing it to revive itself if it was destroyed by a card effect of the opponent.

    He then summons Newt. 1900/400. Noa activates Earthshaker, choosing the attributes Wind (Newt) and Dark (Vampire). Seto chooses to destroy the Dark monster, as he'll get the Vampire back next turn.

    He then attacks Noa's monster.

    Noa begins his turn by playing a Flood card. (Can't recall the name) It washes all the monsters on the field and the graveyard into Noa's cheif card, The Miracle Arc.

    He then tells Seto he must be aware of the special abilities of the arc. In 7 turn, something great will happen and in 3 turns, something will happen to "shock Seto's existence."

    While he wonders what this could mean, Noa activates the 1st turn of the arc....


    115. The Miracle Ark (2)

    Seto plays Spear Dragon in attack mode, and attempts a
    direct attack on Noa's life points, but Noa activates one
    of the numerous effects of the arc, allowing him to take
    one monster from the arc and make it be in defense mode.

    The arc chooses Vampire Lord, and Spear Dragon destroys it,
    however, Spear Dragon does damage even if the monster is in
    defense mode, so Noa loses a few life points, though not
    many.

    As Noa's turn begins, he activates the arc's 1st turn,
    which makes the surrounding environment look as it would
    have in the age of the dinosaurs. To go along with the new
    theme, he plays Giant Rex, which destorys Spear Dragon.

    Seto begins his turn by playing Cloudy Dragon in defense
    mode, and due to the effect of the Deck Master, light
    monsters requiring Tribute can be summoned with one less
    tribute than usual. Cloudy Dragon, requiring one tribute,
    doesn't need any now.

    Noa starts his 2nd turn and plays a meteor like card, which
    clouds the Virtual sun and causes an ice age to come about.
    (which freezes and kills his dinosaur, by the way.)

    He then activates Ice Age Panick, which causes them both to
    loose half their remaining life points bringing Seto down
    to 700. Noa then special summons Last Mammoth, which is
    going for a direct attack! (atk power = 800)

    But Seto activates the ability of the Cloudy Dragon, which
    means it will never be destroyed by Magic or Monsters. But
    Noa explains the Last Mammoth's effect.

    The damage Noa will get from an attack to a monster with
    higher defense will be deducted from SETO'S life points!
    Cloudy Dragon, with a defense of 1500, would cause him to
    lose exactly 700 life points!!!

    But he activates the Destruction wheel on the mamoth, and
    defends his own life points with Defense Wheel which the
    mammoth is destroyed and Noa looses the attack power of the
    mammoth.

    Seto then takes his turn and uses Thunder Dragon's special
    effect: Discard it from the hand to bring out 2 thunder
    dragons, and he fuses the two into the Twin-Headed Thunder
    Dragon. He then calls an attack, causes Noa to summon two
    monsters in defense mode from the arc.

    Seto then activates a trap, allowing for 1 turn differences
    in defense to be delt with in damage. (As if the defending
    monster was in attack mode)

    He orders Cloudy Dragon to attack Noa's first monster, but
    before the Twin Headed Dragon can attack the last monster
    and wipe out Noa, Noa calls for Seto to stop, and Mokuba
    appears.

    He steps in front of Noa and spreads out his arms to
    protect him.

    Noa explains that if Seto attacks, Mokuba might not
    survive. He then laughs and tells Seto that his prophecy
    has come true: Something happened in the third round
    to "shock his existence."...


    116. Save Mokuba! The Seventh Turn of Fate (3)

    Seto is shocked to see Mokuba standing there...on someone else's side. Noa tells Seto that Mokuba thinks Noa is his real brother and that Seto is the enemy. Mokuba says that any enemy of his "brother" is an enemy of his.

    Seto ends his turn, definately not willing to risk losing Mokuba for the attack. Yugi calls out for Seto to keep fighting, and that to remember when he fought Joey under similar circumstances.

    Seto doesn't want to accept Yugi's help, but realizes that there is one card to prove his and Mokuba's relationship. Noa activates the next day's effect, causing the ice to vanish and the modern world to appear.

    He activates Dark Hole, getting rid of all the monsters, except Cloudy Dragon, of course, who must stay.

    He then plays Gradius, and equips it with Cyclone Laser and and the Modifyer, allowing every attack made by the monster to be 100 points higher than the defense of the other monster, meaning each turn, Seto will lose 100 life points. He is attacked and is brought down to 600.

    He begins his turn, hoping for the card, but doesn't draw it. He instead thinks back to the promise he made Mokuba, that he would protect him no matter what, that he would be his father...

    Then he thinks to how he treated him back when he had to take the test, and explains that he didn't USE Mokuba, but knew that no matter what, he would always keep Mokuba in his family, that he would never abondon him.

    It was the relationship between the two of them that only they could understand that beat K. Kaiba.

    Seto then ends his turn, and Noa activates the Choice card, allowing it to copy his Gradius and allowing two attacks. One attack brings Seto to 500, and another knocks him off his feet and he collapses on the ground.

    Yugi shouts over to Mokuba. He asks him if he really wants to see Seto treated like this. Mokuba starts to remember a little, but doesn't do anything yet.

    Seto stands up and tells Mokuba that when he was first adopted, it was a nightmare. He was about the crash, and the only thing that saved him was the card that Mokuba drew him...the blue eyes white dragon. He made a promise to become a man who would deserve that card...and then asks Mokuba if he has done that. He asks him if he is worthy of the dragon, and being his brother.

    Seto then draw the Blue Eyes White Dragon, sacrifices Cloudy Dragon for it, and plays a card face down.

    Mokuba remembers everything now. He remembers drawing the picture for Seto... and how he imagined riding the dragon with him...

    Duke and Joey shout for Mokuba to run out of the way so Seto can attack, and he runs away from Noa. Seto attacks the Gradius and Choice is destroyed as well.

    Noa begins his turn, and Seto activates the card that will decide the game...LAST BATTLE.

    Both players choose one monster, and abondon everything else on the field and in their hand to the graveyard. The two monsters battle, and the one that survives the turn is declared the winner.

    Noa chooses the arc, and BEWD attacks it. Seto declares himself the winner, but Noa laughs and tells Seto, "Did you forget? It is the 7th turn...and now my real cheif appears."

    A large monster with wings appears and kills the Blue Eyes White Dragon.

    Noa fuses himself with the winged chief card and tells Seto that he is the loser. Seto falls to the ground, and Mokuba runs toward him, apologizing for what he didn't even realize he had done...

    Noa then curses both of them, and turns them into stone, sadly staring at each other with their hands inches apart...

    Yugi and everyone else runs over to them and as they arrive, one tear falls out of the stone Mokuba's eye. Noa names the "work" Wonderful Brotherhood, the two brothers who will never touch.

    Yami takes over and shouts at Noa for what he has done. He tells Noa Seto could have made the duel a tie, but not summoning Blue Eyes but using Cloudy Dragon, who cannot be destroyed by a monster.

    But Seto chose to awaken Mokuba's heart instead. He tells Noa that the duel cannot count as a victory, and shuffles Seto's remaining cards into his own deck.

    He tells Noa he will take over, 400 LP vs. 7400 LP, and if he wins Noa will release the two.

    Noa laughs and all of Yugi's friends beg him not to do it, but he has made up his mind. He will defeat Noa!


    117. Change of Decks, Yugi Vs. Noa (4)

    Noa (bonded to Shinato) and Yami start their match, with Yami shuffling in the rest of Kaiba's deck into his own. However, the match must start as if it were Kaiba making his next move. This means that in addition to having the life point totals as they were before (with Noa at 7400 and Kaiba at 400), Yami cannot start with any cards in his hand and must rely on the cards he draws. He also must keep Kaiba's Deckmaster (the Kaizer Seahorse), which is useless to Yami since most of his monsters are Dark Monsters. Tristan points out that if Yami does not draw a monster card on his first turn, he is finished, as Noa's monster Shinato (with an attack of 3300) is on the field.

    Yami draws, gets Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts and promptly puts it in face-up defense mode. Noa draws but doesn't get a monster that he can play, so he attacks Gazelle with Shinato. However, Shinato's effect is that if it destroys a monster in defense mode, it cuts Yami's life points in half, placing him at 200. What's more, Noa gains whatever life points Yami lost, placing Noa at 7600.

    Yami draws and places his monster in face-down defense mode. Noa draws and plays Yata-Garasu (which will prevent Yami from drawing cards in his draw phase when it does damage to his life points). To clear the way for Yaga-Garasu, Noa attacks the face-down card with Shinato. However, the card is the Retrained Celtic Guardian, which cannot be destroyed by any monster with an attack power greater than 1900, so it survives. However, Noa plays the card that Pegasus gave him: Spring of Rebirth, which gives him 500 life points whenever a monster is returned to a player's hand. Since Yata-Garasu is a Spirit monsters, it returns to Noa's hand at the end of his turn and sets his life points at 8100. Noa mentions that all Spirit Monsters return to a player's hand at the end of the turn and that they cannot be Special Summoned. The Spring of Rebirth was thus designed to help players who played Spirit Monsters.

    Yami draws and places another card in defense mode. Noa then takes his turn, draws and plays Asura Priest Fairy, a Spirit Monster with an attack of 1700, which can attack all of the opponent's monsters on the field. Its destroys the Guardian and destroys the face-down monster.which was the Cyber Jar, which destroys all the cards on the field. Before Noa loses Shinato, though, he "unbinds" himself from Shinato by using its final effect: Noa can recall Shinato back to the Deckmaster position if it is going to be destroyed, but he can never summon Shinato again.

    Since Spirit Monsters can't be Special Summoned, Noa gets nothing from the effect of the Cyber Jar. Yami, however, gets Sangan and Gamma the Magnet Warrior onto the field. On his next turn, Yami sacrifices the two to summon the Dark Magician and gets a Big Shield Gardna into his hand through the effect of Sangan. He attacks with the mage and reduces Noa to 5600. Noa is furious, and on his next turn plays a magic card called Next Life. It allows him to Normal Summon a monster that has the same level as one of his opponent's monsters on the field. Noa plays Yamata Dragon (with an attack power of 2600) and destroys the Dark Magician. Yami lost 100 life points (setting him at 100), but the effect of Shinato still activates (even though its in his Deckmaster position), so Noa gains the life points Yami lost since his monster was in attack mode (100 life points) as well as an additional 500 life points through the Spring at the end of his turn, setting him at 6200. Noa says it looks hopeless for Yami, but Tea and co. cheer Yami on. This gives Noa the idea that Yami only has hope because of his friends, so he comes up with an idea.

    Yami then plays Swords of Revealing Light, halting Noa from attacking for three turns. He plays Kuriboh and attacks Noa directly, but the damage is minimal. Noa still has 5900 life points. Noa plays a monster in defense mode. Yami draws and gets the Dark Magician Girl, but plays Big Shield Gardna in defense mode and switches Kuriboh to defense mode as well. Noa plays another monster in defense mode and plays one card face down. Yami then places one card face down. Noa begins mocking Yami, but Tea and co. cheer him on. Noa takes his turn and turns Duke to stone. He activates his trap card: Destiny Clock, which speeds up time by one turn, destroying the Swords. He starts by switching Otohime (which was face-down) to attack mode, a princess that can switch the mode of one of Yami's monsters. Noa switches the annoying Kuriboh that bit him into attack mode and then sacrifices Otohime and the face-down monster to play the Yamata Dragon again. He attacks Kuriboh, hoping to finish Yami.


    118. 10000LP Vs. 100LP (5)

    The attack went through, but Yami activated the trap card Nutrient Z, which gave him 4000 more life points (if the damage done to him was greater than 2000) before the attack. Now Yami now has 1800 life points. However, since Yami lost 2300 life points, Noa gains them, setting him at 8200. He then chains with a Quickplay Magic card from his hand (since it was his turn): Sebek's blessing, which lets him gain the damage done to Yami, setting his lifepoints at 10,500. BUT then the turn ends and the Yamata Dragon returns to his hand, setting off the Spring, which makes Noa's life points 11,000.

    Yami plays Alpha the Magnet Warrior in attack mode and attacks directly, making Noa's life points 9600. Noa then turns Tristan (in monkey-form) to stone. He explains that one person will be turned to stone during the end of each of Yami's turns. Noa draws and plays Inaba White Rabbit (with an attack power of 700) which can attack directly, setting Yami at 1100. He ends his turn, recalls the Spirit monster, and gains 700 life points from Shinato and 500 life points from the Spring, setting him at 10,800.

    Yami takes his turn, plays one card face down and sacrifices Alpha to summon the Dark Magician Girl. Her attack power goes to 2300 because of the Dark Magician in the Graveyard, and she attacks Noa directly, placing him at 8500. Noa turns Serenity to stone, takes his turn and plays Inaba White Rabbit again.BUT Yami activates the trap card Dark Renewal, sacrificing the Gardna and the Rabbit to revive the Dark Magician (although the attack of the Girl becomes 2000 again). Noa then places one card face down.

    Yami plays the Dark Magic ritual and sacrifices Valkyrion from his hand to summon the Magician of Black Chaos, which means all three of his major magicians are on the field. He attacks with the Magician of Black Chaos, but Noa activates his trap card. It takes the Dark Magician Girl as a shield (making Yami destroy it, lose 800 life points (300) and lets Noa gain it, setting him at 9300) and ends the battle phase. Noa then turns Joey to stone. On his turn, he plays a monster card face down and places one card. He takes another card from his hand and shows it to Yami before he places it (because, as Noa says, "You're going to die"). The card is a trap called Land Worship, which will allow Noa to return one Spirit Monster from the graveyard into his hand. He will choose Inaba White Rabbit, which he will use to attack directly, ending the duel.

    Yami draws, but Noa activates Land Worship, returning the Rabbit to his hand. Yami then plays the card he drew: Card Destruction, sending Noa's hand to the graveyard and making him draw a new one. He destroys the face-down card with the Magician of Black Chaos, but it was another Otohime. Since she was flipped, she switches the Dark Magician to defense mode. Noa then actives his other trap: Shadow Utensil, which revives the Otohime in defense mode. Noa then takes his turn, draws, and turns Tea to stone. He then plays Change of Heart to steal the Dark Magician for one turn (since it's Yami's favorite monster). He then sacrifices Otohime and the Magician for Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi (with an attack of 2800), and equips it with the "Hell Sword," giving it 200 more attack points for one turn. It punches the Magician of Black Chaos, setting Yami at 100 and Noa at 9500). But Noa also gains another 500 life points from the Sword when it goes to the Graveyard, so he's now at 10,000. He finishes his turn by playing Spiritual Energy Settle Machine, which allows the Spirit Monsters to stay on the field (as long as he discards a card from his hand at the end of his turn, which he does).

    Due to the punch, Yami is on the ground and is unsure if he can win, as he has no cards in his hand. Through the Puzzle, though, Yugi shows Yami another room, which contains all the memories of his friends. Everyone that was turned to stone (even Kaiba and Mokuba) are there, and they tell him to keep fighting.

    Yami gets up and draws the "Lottery Heaven" card (which is probably "Coins from Heaven"). He plays it, allowing Noa and Yami to draw until they both have six cards from his hand. As Yami draws, he feels the six spirits of his friends giving him each one card. Afterward, Yami tells Noa, "You have no next turn." He starts by playing Monster Reborn, reviving the Blue Eyes White Dragon in the graveyard from when Kaiba ended his game. He then plays Polymerization, fusing it with the other two Blue Eyes in his hand to play the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon. After playing the Rapid Attack card (allowing the Ultimate Dragon to attack on its first turn), it attacks the Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi and reduces Noa to 8300. Then Yami chains with his Quickplay magic card De-Fusion, separating the Ultimate Dragon into the three Blue Eyes. They attack directly, doing 9000 damage to Noa, ending the game. Yami wins.


    119. Darkness of the Kaiba Family (1)

    Noah's life points drop to zero, and he falls to the ground, realizing that not only did he not defeat Yugi, he didn't really defeat Seto either, as Yugi took on Seto's will when he challenged Noah. Seto lost to save Mokuba.

    Everyone is restored, and Seto and Mokuba embrace each other. Tea and Duke then inform Seto of what happened; how Yugi took over and beat Noah with Seto's deck.

    Noah is angry at this, and tries to take over Yami's body, but the shocking scenes in Egypt Noah sees in Yami's deep memory, and the Millennium Puzzle protecting Yami, prevents him from doing so. Yami, on the other hand, sees images of the VR pods where he and everyone else's bodies are.

    Noah demands to know who Yami really is, but Yami doesn't get a chance to answer, as Gozaboro Kaiba appears at that moment. No one is too happy to see him, except Noah who is quite please...until Gozaboro tells Noah that he has failed, and that he has no use for Noah anymore.

    Then he explains how he only adopted Seto to be used as a body for Noah. Seto finds this very shocking, that not only was he just adopted to be used, but it wasn't even due to his intelligance.


    120. Miraculous Escape - Blue-Eyes Vs. Exodia Necros (2)

    Yugi and co. are upset because Noa has separated them from Kaiba. Suddenly they are surrounded by Duel Monsters (such as the Skull Night and the Cosmo Queen). Yugi and Joey begin to deal with them by pulling cards out of their deck and summoning them into battle like they did in their previous trip to the Virtual World.

    Noa (in Mokuba's body) prepares to blow up the area in which Kaiba, Yugi and their friends are still trapped. However, Yami Marik wanders into the power source and begins using his Millenium Rod to emit electric bolts which shut down the power source. However, an emergency source gets the system back online. Noa successfully sends his command to the satellite. In thirty minutes, the Virtual World will be destroyed. Noa heads for a helicopter to escape from the imminent explosion, but suddenly begins thinking of how Mokuba had talked to him about the possibility of Kaiba giving him a new body provided that he change his evil ways and about how he and Mokuba were brothers. Noa chuckles, saying Mokuba was an idiot and that soon he will destroy them all. But as he prepares to take off, he begins to have second thoughts.

    Meanwhile, Seto Kaiba has gone to the Kaibacorp building in the Virtual World to meet his stepfather Gozaburo Kaiba, who had (apparently) placed the monsters in front of Yugi and co. via his chessboard. Seto demands that Gozaburo release all of them from the virtual world, but Gozaburo wants to play against Seto in a game. He suggests that they play Duel Monsters, since that is the game that Seto is best at. Seto accepts.

    In the virtual stadium, Gozaburo takes his first turn by playing Painful Choice. He draws five cards from his deck and shows them to Seto. Seto will pick one for Gozaburo to keep and all the others will go the Graveyard. However, the five cards that Gozaburo draws and shows Kaiba are the five pieces of Exodia. Seto's in shock and is puzzled as to why Gozaburo would show him those five, since four of the pieces would go to the Graveyard and thus would be useless to him in summoning Exodia. He decides to play it out and see what his stepfather's strategy is. Seto lets Gozaburo keep the Left Arm of the Forbidden One. Gozaburo then plays one card in defense mode and ends his turn. Seto plays one card face down, summons Vorse Raider , and attacks the card in defense mode.which was the Left Arm of the Forbidden One.

    Finally, Gozaburo draws and announces his trump card: a ritual Magic card called "Pact with Exodia" that could only be activated once all five pieces of Exodia were in his Graveyard. After paying 2000 life points, Gozaburo summons (via the Pact) a dark "dead" version of Exodia called Exodia Necros, but it only has an attack strength of 1800 and a defense strength of 0. Nevertheless, he attacks the Vorse Raider (which has an attack of 1900). Seto thinks that Exodia Necros should be destroyed, but it does not. Gozaburo explains that Exodia Necros is immortal and gains 1000 life points for each battle it has with a monster, True, Gozburo loses 100 life points, placing him at 1900, but the attack power of Exodia Necros becomes 2800.

    Seto then tries to get around by summoning a "Spirit Dragon" (with a defense of 1000) and activates his face down card, which allows him to offer Spirit Dragon as a tribute to destroy all monsters with a defense power of 1000 or less. Since Exodia Necros has a defense of zero, it should be destroyed but it stays alive. Gozaburo then explains that in addition to gaining 1000 attack points each time it does battle with a monster, Exodia Necros cannot be destroyed by battles, magic or trap cards, thanks to its five pieces in the Graveyard. Seto immediately switches his Vorse Raider to defensive mode and plays one card face down.

    Meanwhile, Noa is trying to stop the missiles from being fired, which will be launched in ten minutes. He quickly tells Yugi and co. (who are battling) and Kaiba and Gozaburo that he has Mokua's body and that the Virtual World will be destroyed soon.


    121. Miraculous Escape - Blue-Eyes Vs. Exodia Necros (3)

    Noa then tells everyone that they can escape from the Virtual World by using the portal in the Game Room in the Virtual World. Gozaburo can't do a thing about it, since Noa is the one that controls the system. Most of the gang escapes through the Dancing Machine, but Noa asks Yugi to rescue Seto and to bring him back. Yugi agrees.

    Meanwhile, Gozaburo is infuriated after hearing what Noa has done. He changes into a hideous monster and tries to take Seto's body, but Seto makes a suggestion: they'll finish their battle and the winner will be the one allowed to go back into the real world. Gozaburo agrees. He promptly attacks Vorse Raider, but Seto activates Negate Attack, preventing Exodia Necros from destroying it and from gaining 1000 attack points. Seto has realized that although Exodia Necros cannot be destroyed by magic or trap cards, but it can still be affected by them.

    He then takes his turn. First, he activates Shrink, which cuts Exodia Necros's attack in half for one turn, making its attack 1400. He then sacrifices the Vorse Raider for the Emerald Dragon (with an attack power of 2400) and attacks Exodia Necros. Although he does not destroy it, he still does damage to Gozaburo's life points, bringing his total down to 900.

    However, since Exodia Necros was in a battle, after the effects of Shrink wear off, it gains 1000 attack points, making its attack 3800. On Gozaburo's turn, it attacks the Emerald Dragon and reduces Seto's life points to 2600. The attack power of Exodia Necros becomes 4800 as a result of the battle. Seto's turn comes up, and he draws Pot of Greed, which lets him draw two more cards. He plays it and then promptly places a card face down and another monster in defense mode. Gozaburo attacks with Exodia Necros and destroys the Ancient Lamp. He laughs, because Exodia Necros' attack just became 5800. Seto just says that Gozaburo is a terrible player. Seto's turn comes up and he draws the Blue Eyes White Dragon. He plays Monster Reborn, resurrecting the Ancient Lamp. The Ancient Lamp allows him to Special Summon La Jinn from his hand. He tributes them both for Blue Eyes White Dragon, and then activates his trap card. It allows him to remove an unlimited amount of cards from the graveyard out of play, but he must pay 500 life points for each card removed. He pays 2500 life points to remove the five pieces of Exodia from the Graveyard. Exodia Necros becomes "life-like" and looks like its original form, but it only has an attack power of 1800. He then attacks with Blue Eyes White Dragon and wins.

    Gozaburo is upset and changes into his monster form and tries to take Seto's body. Yugi rescues him in time, and although Gozaburo traps them on a building, they jump and Noa creates an exit in the air to bring them back to the real word. When they wake up, they realize that Mokuba's body is in one of the pods. This is because Noa is giving Mokuba his body back, stating that his true place is with his father in the Virtual World. Gozaburo is upset with his son, but Noa has destroyed all the exits and does not permit his father to leave.

    Tea, Joey, Duke, Tristan and Serenity are on the blimp, but it needs to take off since the missiles will be hitting soon. As they take off, Yugi, Kaiba and Mokuba run out. They get them on the blimp just as the missiles hit. Gozaburo tries to engulf the blimp in flames, but Kaiba speeds them out.

    As everyone else mourns the "death" of Noa (except for Yami Malik who is laughing because of the destruction), Kaiba reminds them that they have a tournament to finish. They now head for Alcatraz and the Duel Tower there, where the finals shall take place.


    122. Place of the Finals - Alcatraz (1)

    Kaiba announces that the remaining 4 duelists will have a 4 way match. The 2 duelists who are eliminated will face eachother, and the winners will face eachother after.

    After explaining the rules, the duel begins. However, Malik and Kaiba seem to be focusing on Joey, him being the weakest of the 4. With 2 duelists working against him, how can Joey possibly survive?


    123. Battle Royal! (2)

    Kaiba and Malik are still working together to take out Joey. However Yami has had enough, and backs up Joey's moves! Not only does this help Joey, but does damage to both Kaiba and Malik.

    Instead of a 4 way, this has turned into an all out tag team! But with with all 4 working on teams, how will they be able to decide this match?


    124. Their Respective Opponents (3)

    The duel rages on, yet not one of them has been eliminated yet!
    However, this soon changes when Kaiba turns on Malik! All 3 then quickly gang up on Malik, eliminating him from the match! Malik vows they will all be crushed for this/

    So now the match continues between Joey, Yami, and Kaiba. Joey put's up a good fight, but in the end is overpowered, and eliminated. But Joey seems unphazed, actually glad because now he get's his chance for revenge on Malik.

    Malik seems amused, as he believes Joey will be no challenge to him.

    Kaiba is also glad, as he will now be able to defeat Yami and take his egyptian God card!


    125. Joey Vs. Marik (1)

    Joey enters bravely in his match against Marik.

    Malik informs Joey that this is a dark game now, but Joey says he's willing to go through with it, and that he will make Malik pay for what he did to him and Yugi (taking control of Joey)and the pain he's caused Mai. Marik toys with him by playing a card that will take a card from Joey's hand every turn and discard it. Does Joey have a chance of beating Malik before he runs out of cards, or has his best cards discarded?

    (T.B.C.)


    126. Joey Vs. Marik (2)

    Malik's card continues to steal cards from Joey's hand, if he dosen't do something soon, he'll run out of cards!

    However, things look brighter for Joey as he summons his Jinzo, and delivers damage to Malik, and destroys Malik's card(the one that kept discarding cards from his hand)

    But Malik is worried little, for he has Ra in his hand, and all he needs to do is find a way to summon it.

    Can Joey stop Malik from summoning Ra? If Malik does manage to summon Ra, will Joey be able to stop it?


    127. Turning the Tide! Warrior of Thunder (3)

    Malik has Ra in his hand, but now must find a way to summon it.

    Malik keeps up his defenses well, even when Joey get's 2 other monsters onto the field.

    But Malik can't seem to be able to keep 3 monsters on the field to sacrafice as Joey keeps destroying them.

    Could Joey actually defeat Malik?


    128. Joey's Death (4)

    Things are looking up for Joey now. Everyone is cheering Joey on. Kaiba seems shcoked that Joey has the upper hand against Malik.

    Things look even better as Joey somehow get's Ra into his hand! However, he remembers what happened with Mai, so won't play it.But the tides turn as Ra's power strikes Joey down!

    With his heart in the cards, Joey draws the Iron warrior, which would win him tyhe match, but he has suffered FAR too much damage, and thus Malik wins by default.

    Yugi loses his fighting spirit as Joey lays in the hospital bed, but he uses Ichizu's necklace to see in the future, and sees Joey telling him to win the tournament and take out Malik, so Yami takes over, and heads. It's Yugi Vs Kaiba!

    Note:In this dark game Joey didn't die!

    Yami eventualy draws the Red eyes, but is reluctant to play it.

    Joey wakes up, and rushes out to watch the duel. He tells Yami to go ahead and play his Red eyes. Yami plays it in defense mode, but Kaiba plays Defense Poralysis which forces his monsters to attack.

    Yami has nothing in his hand that can help him.


    133. Destoy the Hatred! Black Paladin (5)

    Thinks look bad for Yami, but instead of attacking with all 3 of his Blue eyes, Kaiba fuses them all into the Blue eyes Ultimate Dragon!

    Yami plays Swords of revealing light to stall for time, hoping to find a way to stop Kaiba's Blue eyes. Joey tells Yami not to give up, and that he can beat Kaiba, he's proven that to him 3 times. Kaiba reminds Joey he won the 3rd time, but Joey says that's because Kaiba cheated.

    Yami sacrafices his Red eyes for Dark Magician, and plays the Magical hats.

    Is Yami merely deleaying his inevitable defeat?


    134. Destoy the Hatred! Black Paladin (6)

    After another turn or so, Kaiba's Ultimate Dragon is freed, and now he has to find Yami's Dark Magician.

    But he misses twice, leaving only one empty hat leaft, and Yami still has nothing in his hand that can fend off Kaiba's Ultimate Dragon, and with Defense Poralysis on the field, his Dark Magician will be leaft in attack mode. This will devestate Yami, and wipe out a good portion of his lifepoints, as well as one of his best monsters!

    Yami seems ready to quit, when Joey tells Yami how he always believed in him, and how he won't give up on his best friend.

    So Yami believes in the heart of the cards, and is able to transform the Dark Magician into Dark Magician sage!

    Kaiba tells Yami how big of mistake he made, unaware of his effect.

    But just when Kaiba's Ultimae Dragon prepares to attack, Yami plays Defusion.

    Yami explains to a shocked Kaiba his monster's special effect. Then he plays a card that wipes out all monsters on the field. He then sacrafices his Sage for a stronger monster(can't remember who) and wipes out the rest of Kaiba's lifepoints. Kaiba reluctantly hands over Obelisk, and walks out in rage.

    Joey follows, as he believes now that without his God card, he can take Kaiba.

    Malik is pleased, as now he will use his Ra to take the 2 remaining God cards and Yami's puzzle!


    135. The Common Folk's Path of Flames - Joey vs. Kaiba (1)

    Yugi could win Kaiba by Black Paladin. In fact, he won the monster in Kaiba's mind or his hate. Joey was proud of himself that he was a part of Yugi's victory. Without Red Eyes Black Dragon, Yugi would have lost. Anyway, Kaiba still didn't believe in friendship power. He believed only in future. Thus, Joey challenged Kaiba to have a duel with him to prove that. They played this game outside Duel Tower on ground of Alcatraz.

    Kaiba started first. He summoned a monster and faced down 2 cards. He was going to use his professional technique, virus. Turn to Joey, he summoned Gear Freed and attacked Kaiba's monster. Then Kaiba opened a card that decreased halp of attack power of his monster. His monster had attack power below 1,000 points. When Gear Freed destroyed the monstter, virus trap card activated. This card could be activated with monster having attack power below 1,000 only. So Joey couldn't summon any monsters having attack power more than, 1,500 any more. Then Kaiba could summon another monster and attack directly Joey. His LP was 2,200. At his turn, Joey summoned Lanstar Warrior and combining with Angel's Dice. Lanstar Warrior was power up destroyed Kaiba's monster. Kaiba had LP 2,800 left. Yugi really believed in Joey's strength as a real duelist.

    On the other side, Tea having Malik's spirit separted her friends and went to see Isis. He realized everything he had done with Istar family and would like to get rid of a shadow Malik himself. Then he, in Tea's body, ran to see him at the duel battle on the top of Duel Tower.


    136. Blue-Eyes White Dragon vs. Blue-Eyes White Dragon (2)

    Kaiba was surprised that he ws attaced by Joey. Kaiba's turn, he summoned a monster to destroy Landstar Swordman of Joey. When turn came back to Joey, he summond a monster and intended to use his magic sword card to power up his monster's attack power. Suddenly, Kaba openned his trap card to steal that magic sword for his own monster. At the other side on the top of duel tower, Yami Malik was fighting the spirit of Malik in Tea's body. The Millenium puzzle reminded Yugi that Tea was under Malik's attack. Yugi hurried to help and left Joey with Tristan and Duke. He also believed in Joey. Turn back to Kaiba turn, he used his magic card, controller, to control the opponent's monster by lossing his 1,000 LP. Kaiba controlled Joey's monster and sacrifice to summon Blue Eyes White Dragon. Blue Eyes White Dragon attacked Joey, then opened his card, Scape Goat, to be the first targets. There were 4 scape goats,one was destroyed by Blue Eyes White dragon. However, Kaiba used his additional monsters to destroy all of the scape goat.

    At the duel on duel tower, Tea with Malik's mind, was in danger but Isis and Yugi appeared to save her in time. Yugi and Malik were almost fighting by power of millenium items but Malik stopped and told Yugi that the final battle was starting soon. He didn't have to hurry.

    Joey hasn't lost all hope yet. He drew a magic card that allowed him to draw 2 more cards. He used Grave Robber to steal a magic controller card from Kaibas graveyard. He lost 1,000 LP for using this card, so he had only 100 LP left. Joey used this magic to control Blue Eyes Whit Dragon of Kaiba and Destroyed it. Then he used Reborn Monster to regenerate Blue Eyes from the graveyard. Blue Eyes White Dragon of Joey's destroyed Kaiba's monster. Before ending his turn, he placed a monster into a defense mode and faced down a card. Turn back to Kaiba, he summoned Blue Eye's White Dragon and attacked Joey's Blue Eyes White dragon. Both dragons were destroyed each other with the equal power. Anyway, Kaiba used his Reborn monster to regenerate Blue Eyes White Dragon again.


    137. The Path of Duelist's Mind (3)

    Taken from March 2003 Newtype USA-
    Junouchi hopes to turn the tables on Kaiba by using his baby dragon/time wizard combo, but he's defeated. Isuzu asks Kaiba to lend his strength to Yugi, who's fighting with Marik, but Kaiba refuses.


    138. Final, Yugi vs. Marik (1)

    After perswasion Kaiba reluctantly gives Yami his Devil's Santuary card. Despite the hurt he faced loosing to Kaiba yet again(who still treats him like dirt) Joey joins the others anc cheers on Yugi as he stares down Yami Malik.

    Yami Malik says this will be a very special Dark Game, as he shows his flashes of Mai, regular Malik, and even little Yugi trapped! Yami demands to know what he has to done to Yugi. Yami Malik explains that if Yami wins, Mai and Little Yugi will be freed, and regular Malik will die. If Yami Malik wins, Mai, Little Yugi and regular Malik will ALL die and so will Yugi's friends(so either way regualr Malik will die)

    Yami excepts and the duel begins. As before, Yami sacrafices his 3 knight cards to summon Orisis and Malik is damaged by Orisis but it dosen't matter to Yami Malik as he summons Ra on his next turn and topples Orisis. Yami has faith that there's a card in his deck that can help him but Ra seems unstopable. Can Yami defeat Ra for the very first time ever?


    139. Devil's Sanctuary Arises! (2)

    Yami has nothing in his hand to take down Ra, and is fearful of what Ra's special ability might be, as if having 5400 attack strength wasn't enough.

    Yami Malik summons another monster and sacrafices it.

    Yami is confused when he dosen't see another monster apear on the field.

    Yami Malik tells him to look at Ra's stats and saw they rose! Yami Malik explains that Ra's special ability allows him to sacrafice monsters, and the sacraficed monster's attack and defense combine together and add to Ra's attack and defense power.

    Yami Malik keeps using this ability and raising Ra's attack power higher then anything Yami has ever faced and Yami Malik tells him to surrender but with so much at stake Yami refuses to quit, even though he can't see a way to win, especialy since his Egyptian God is gone!

    However Yami draws Devil's Santuary card and uses it to turn the tables on Yami Malik but it won't be enough to win him the match!


    140. An Eternal Wall, God Slime! (3)

    Yami Yugi has just used Obelisk to attack Yami Malik's life points directly. Things look bad for Yami Malik but...

    Yami Malik isn't worried at all, even though his life points are now at 700. He tells Yami Yugi that such an attack was what he was waiting for.

    Since Yami Yugi took more than half of Yami Malik's life points in an attack, Yami Malik is now allowed to activate a trap called Metal Reflect Jam. It turns into a clone copy of Obelisk, but it is placed in defense mode with a defense of only 3000.

    Yami Malik then plays Revival Jam and uses Polymerization to fuse his Revival Slime and his Metal Reflect Jam into a God Slime. However, it still only has a defense of 3000.

    Yami Yugi then takes his turn, places a Big Shield Gardna in defense mode and attacks the God Slime with Obelisk, but the God Slime just splatters and reforms. The new God Slime has the same effect as Revival Jam.

    Yami Malik takes his next turn. He places one card face down and summons a Bowgunian to the field, which will do 300 damage to Yami Yugi's life points at the end of his turns.

    Yami Yugi then takes his turn and sacrifices the Gardna to summon the Dark Magician Girl. He attacks the Bowgunian with her, but Yami Malik activates the Jam Defender, placing the God Slime in the way of the attack. As a result, Yami loses 1000 life points, bringing him down to 1300. Yami ends his turn and gets shot by the Bowgunian, reducing his life points to 1000.

    Yami Malik then takes his turn and activates Magic Shard Excavation, which allows him to discard two cards from his hands to put one Magic card from his graveyard into his hand. He chooses Monster Reborn. Soon, Ra shall appear...


    141. Obelisk's Anger, Soul Energy Max! (4)

    Yami Malik has just used a card called Magic Shard Excavation, which allows him to discard two cards from his hand to put one magic card from his graveyard back in his hand. The card he chooses is Monster Reborn. However, instead of resurrecting Ra immediately, he brings out a new monster (with an attack power of 1900) that allows him to gain 1000 life points, setting him at 1700. He then ends his turn.

    Yami Yugi starts his turn. However, he is trying to decide how to save Malik. After a chat with Yugi, they decide that Ra is the weakness of Yami Malik, as Yami Malik must combine his soul with Ra's when performing the One Turn Kill move. Yami then brings Gazelle onto the field and places a card. Since his turn is over, Malik's Bowgunian card shoots Yami, reducing his life points to 700.

    On his turn, Yami Malik uses Monster Reborn to resurrect Ra. He then pays 1000 life points to destroy Obelisk. Yugi then activates his own Monster Reborn, resurrecting Osiris and putting it in the way of the attack. Osiris takes the hit and Obelisk is unharmed.

    However, Malik then activates a card that gives him another battle phase and brings Ra back onto the field (as the card states that any monster that was summoned and attacked previously on the turn could come back). This time, Malik begins to use One Turn kill. First, he starts chanting, reducing his life points to 1 and makes Ra's attack 699.

    BUT at this instant Yami activates his Soul Taker card, which allows him to sacrifice one of Malik's monsters (but at the same time gives Malik 1000 life points). Malik thinks that Yami will sacrifice Ra, so he laughs since Ra cannot be sacrificed through special effects. However, Yami sacrificed Malik's slime monster. It sets off Obelik's special ability to destroy all monsters on the field and do damage to Malik's life points. This normally requires two sacrifices, but the slime monster counted as two since it was fused from two creatures.

    Obelisk's fists fire at Ra, and...


    142. The End of Battle City! (5)

    Before Obelisk's fists hit, Yami Malik uses Ra's ability to sacrifice the rest of his monsters to increase Ra's attack, and then sacrifices the additional 1000 life points he got from Yami's Soul Taker card. This makes Ra's attack 4899. It seems pointless but...

    Obelisk's fists hit Ra, but bounce off and do not destroy Ra or do any damage to Yami Malik, who laughs because he states that Ra cannot be destroyed by the special effect of Obelisk. He prepares to attack Obelisk and wipe out all of Yami's life points...

    BUT Yami counters again with his Dimension Magic card. It allows him to sacrifice two monsters to special summon a Spell-caster to the field if another Spellcaster is also on the field. Since Yugi has his Dark Magician Girl on the field, he sacrifices Gazelle and (in a surprising move) Obelisk to bring the Dark Magician onto the field to join his young apprentice. The two Magicians can now automatically destroy one monster on the field. Yami picks Ra and destroys it.

    When the cloud settles, everyone sees that the normal Malik is back in his body while Yami Malik is now chained on the field. What happened was that since Yami Malik had been combining his soul with Ra's while performing One Turn Kill, he was weakened. When Ra was destroyed, it severely weakened Yami Malik, allowing the normal Malik to reclaim his own body. However, a sacrifice had to be made, so Yami Malik was put in his place.

    Malik realizes now what he needs to do. He forfeits the match, causing Yami Malik to disappear completely.

    Yami Yugi is now the official winner of Battle City.


    143. The Destruction of Alcatraz

    Yugi and his friends are seeking for the Kaiba Brothers while Alcatraz is being destroyed in a few minutes. The other side, Battle Ship also has some problem that makes it unable to fly.

At present he decides to follow his road again. Yugi and his friends change a plane from Battle Ship to carrier plane that first was called to take Joey to the hospital.

Yugi will get them back if he can win. However, he will lose his soul if he is defeated at this game. Yugi realizes that this power is similar to the power of the Millennium eye of Pegasus (but little does Yugi know that Pegasus doesn't have his Millennium eye) that can transfer a soul into a card. Anyway, with a combination of Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl, he can win this duel. His opponent sends Obelisk card back to those mysterious guys before his soul is sealed into a card.

    Yugi and friends go to see Professor Holfskin, grandfather of Rebecca and friend of Sugoroku, at Domino Meseum. Professor knows about past life of Yugi as nameliss Pharoah. Also, he is a person who travels around the world and studies about history and archeology especially details about ancient Eygpt of Yugi. Yugi asks him how whatever he found matches the current situation. Professor give Yugi some pictures of carved stone in Duel Monster images. He found them at the temple during his exploation. They represents that Duel Monsters might really exist in the world around 10,000 years ago and also involve with Eygpt 3,000 years ago. Tristan disagrees with him because he believes the Duel Monsters are created by technology of Kaiba Corporation. Anyway, Professor reminds him that the real creater is Pegasus whose inspiration came from the monster tablets in Eygpt. Rebecca is getting furious when her grandfather's theory is rejected. However, Joey strongly believes that opinion because after the battle against a shadow game and god card, he feels the existence of Duel Monsters. Rebecca additionally explains in difficult knowledge. It is hard to believe that such a child like her can understand the Rebecca shocks everybody when she says that she is University student by her genius. Then, Yugi lets Professor see a glowing stone he got from the duel ysterday. Professor feels that it is similar to the glowing stones embeded in the eyes of woman statue found inside the temple. Anyhow, he would like to keep and learn more about it. When he gets any further information, he will let Yugi know. Before leaving the museum, only Yugi hears some girl voice asking for help.

    The 3 warriors submits 3 god cards they got to his leader, Dartz who needs power of 3 gods and souls of duelists to awaken the queen.

    At that nigt both Yugi are getting so much anxious that they can't sleep. Original Yugi hears the girl voice asking for help again. It comes from the millennium puzzle. Both Yugi get up inside Yugi's maze mind. They together help to find the source of that sund but they get nothing. Suddenly, Kuribo appears in Yugi's mind and leads them to the real door. Behind the door, both of them are brought to the Duel Monster world that is being treatened by giant eye monster. Both Yugi go inside the castle and see the 3 sealed dragons. Then, the owner of voice appears. That is Black Magician Girl. She lets them know that they are in Duel Monster world now being in danger. The evil monster absorbs he friends into itself until there are a few monsters left in the castle. Three dragons, the monsters protecting this world, are also sealed. Only chosen warrior with heart of duelist can unseal them. Thus, both Yugi together help unsealing the dragon by drawing the sword. When the dragon is awaken, it is named by both Yugi as Timaeus. Then, Yugi wakes up and notices that there is an aura appearing on the night sky. He hurries to go into the Domino City with his Duel Disk. The aura is shaping as green crystal and cracking out into a giant monster that Yugi saw in his Duel Monster World. Person who is behind this monster is Dartz. This monster is absorbing the Duel Monsters supposed to come out from Duel Monster Game into itself. Yugi comes to see his friends at Domino City. Anyway, Dartz lets the monster strongly attack to that nameless Pharoah. Anyway, Yugi sees a light going into his deck in duel disk. When he draws that card, it is Timaeus.

The evil monster is destroyed into green glowing pieces falling down to the earth.


    148. Pegasus's Invitation

    News about strange aura and duel monsters are spreaded all over the world. Yugi and his friends are discussing about that in Yugi's room. They have no idea where to start. Whatever trace they have is only Timaeus card. Then, Grandpa comes in with a mailing package from America to Yugi. Everybody thinks that it may come from Duke. Anyway, sending address is from Industrial Illusions, the company of Pegasus in America. Everybody is frightened because the same situation of duel against a shadow game of Pegasus may occur (but they don't know that Yami Bakura took Pegasus millennium eye). Yugi still decides to open it. It is news from Pegasus who also has no idea about the curret situation of duel monsters coming out from the game. However, he has something to tell Yugi and also needs his help. Pegasus asks Yugi immediately to come to America and he is waiting for him there. Thus, Yugi decides to go to America, all of his friends do to. Outside, Yugi's room, Rex and Weevil are intercepting his conversation. They understand that Pegasus invite Yugi to America to give him a large amount of rare cards. So, they plan to follow them.

    Dartz is thinking when he was facing nameless Pharoah. He hadn't expected that Pharoah ham Timaeus in his hand. Also, he gives his order to his warriors to get the duelists' souls. Amelda chooses to hunt Kaiba's soul because he has some painful backround agaisnt Kaiba Corporation. Then, Varon chooses Joey. He is also doing something for his girl. The last remaining target is Pegasus. At Industrial Illusion company, Pegasus is getting anxious and waiting forward for coming of Yugi. A shadow of unexpected girl, Mai, appears with the scream of Pegasus.

    At night, Tea, Joey and Tristan are preparing their baggages for the trip to America. Yugi sees the card of something. Then, he notices that his other character Yami Yugi is very quiet and inactive. The reason comes from this trip and Pegasus. In fact, both of them much worry about this trip. Next day, everybody is ready at airport. Yugi wonders if he will see Kaiba in America. This is a personal trip by Industrial Illusion Plane from Pegasus. No one realizes that Weevil and Raptor follow them by hiding themselves in the baggage for all trip. When they reache America, they continue the trip by car of the company. Tea notices that there is over amount of baggage. Thus, the officer takes it out. Certainly, it is the luggage haveing Weevil and Rex inside.

    At Kaiba Corporation in America, Kaiba is seriously in trouble if monsters really come out from his technology. He tries to refuse Kaiba Corporation doesn't involve with that situation. Anyway, he gets contact from Pegasus to have a duel against him if he would like to know the truth. Kaiba reminds himself that a related person other than Kaiba Corporation may be the creator as Pegasus. He also suspects where Pegasus has been after losing to Yugi at Duelist Kingdom. Thus, he dicides to go seeing Pegasus to find the answer. Kaiba goes down to the underground and takes out his deck and card. Then his prepares himself to fly to Duelist Kingdom with Mokuba to find the answer from Pegasus.


    149. The Nightmare of Toon World

    Yugi,Joey,Tea and Tristan are travelling by car through San Fransisco city in California. This is the first time of everybody to come to America, thus everyone seems to be excited with new scenery. Anyway Yugi is getting very anxious about Pegasus, stolen god cards, 3 warriors etc. until he doesn't feel happy with the others.

    Kaiba and Mokuba fly to Duelist Kingdom because of Pegasus's invitation. After landing at Pegasus's castle, both of them enter the castle inside where no one seems to exist. Kaiba reaches the duel field in the castle and shouts to let Pegasus appear. Pugasus has been waiting for him there. Kaiaba accuses Pegasus that other than Kaiba corporation, there is only the game creator like Pegasus who is the answer of the current situation why duel monsters come out from the game. Pegasus tells him to win the duel first, then he will know the truth. Kaiba reminds himself when he was defeated last time and captured inside a card with Mokuba. This time he is confident that he must win. Kaiba uses his own duel disk link to battle Pegasus in the duel. Also, Mokuba leaves both of them and watches the duel from a distance.

    Weevil and Rex have still been hiding themselves in a baggage during the trip to America. The baggage was separated and carried on truck. However, it is accidently dropped on the road. When both of them get out off the baggage, they find themselves in a weird slum where they haven't been before.

    The duel between Kaiba and Pegasus starts. Pegasus uses his professional technique of Toon World. Kaiba doesn't let him easily use the same style with him again. Before the duel, he had already prepared the plan to handle that kind of deck. Kaiba sacrifices monsters and summons Blue Eyes White Dragon while Pegasus summons Toon Blue Eyes. Under Toon World, and any attack can't effect a Toon Monster. Kaiba can only defend himself. Pegasus changes a monster from Roon Blue Eyes to Toon Black Magician Girl. Kaiba realizes that the weakest point of this technique is at Toon World. Thus, destroying it is the best solution for Kaiba. Kaiba uses his magec card to destroy all the Toon Monsters and Toon World. At this point, Kaiba feels that his opponent isn't really Pegasus. That is true. Pegasus reveals himself as Amelda, one of the 3 warriors. Amelda tells Kaiba that the real game is starting from now on. Then, he draws a card and activates it. It is The Seal of Orable Curse. The curse ring appears and covers the battle field. Besides, under The Seal of Orable Curse, the loser must sacrifice his soul at the end.


    150. Critias Awakens

    Amelda uses The Seal of Oracle Curse cover the battle field. One way to get out off this curse ring is to win the duel. Also, the loser must sacrifice his soul. Kaiba wonders what technique Amelda is using or if he is kidding him. In duel, monsters of Kaiba are changed into dark monsters and controlled by Amelda. Amelda shows Kaiba a piece of toy robot that belonged to his younger brother. Kaiba and Mokuba are shocked when Amelda tells them that his brother was killed by Kaiba Corporation. His brother had been unlucky to be attacked by military planes of Kaiba Corporation. One thing left was a burnt robot of his brother. Whatever he remembered was Kaiba Gonsaburo and the military planes of Kaiba Corporation. Then he heard the voice of Dartz from the darkness tell her to memorize that. That is his resentment to Kaiba Corporation anyway, Mokuba tries to say that his brother is different. Current Kaiba Coporation focuses on game development and future. Kaiba tells Mokuba to be quiet. It is worthless to defend themselves. Then the duel continues. Though Kaiba can summon Blue Eyes White Dragons, they are controlled as dark monsters on Amelda's field. Kaiba thinks if he is going to lose before drawing the last card. Suddenly, his mind is brought to the other world on where the rest of sealed dragons are located. Kaiba draws the sword out to awaken a sealed dragon, Critias. Then, his sense comes back to current time. When Kaiba draws the card, it is Critias. He wonders if what he saw hadn't been a dream and how there is an unknown card in his deck. However, Kaiba decides to use and summon it. Amelda is amazed how Kaiba got that card. Rendering power of Critias, Kaiba strongly attacks group monsters of Amelda. Anyway, Amelda uses his trap card to save himself and let both LP become 0 at the same time. Then, The Seal of Oracle Curse disappears from the field as well as Amelda. He tells Kaiba he will certainly come back soon. Both of them still remains.

    Yugi and his friends are during his trip on a car. Yet, the car stops out off the city and the driver gets off the car with saying nothing.


    151. The Next Challenger

    After defeating Amelda, Kaiba meets up with Yugi and the others. As they talk about what's going on, Mai enters. Everyone seems suprised and happy at first. Mai then challenges Joey to a duel, one in which the loser will die!

    Everyone is quite shocked, and while Joey does what he can to snap Mai out of it, Mai demands Joey duel her. With no choice Joey does so.

    Joey duels his hardest, and keeps trying to revive the Mai he knew like when yugi helped him when they duled under the control of Malik(or Marik) However it dosen't seem to be working. Can Joey help Mai like Yugi helped him?


    152. Mai is Falling in Darkness

    As the duel between Joey and Mai continues, she tells her former friends what happend to her...
    After Battle City, Mai kept having dreams that Marik trapped her in her own mind again and that Yugi and Joey didn't seem to care! Later on in the flashbacks, Mai is seen running down this alley where it is raining because she is afraid that her nightmares would come true. She slumps down beside a wall and begins to cry. Then, Varon finds her and tells her that he will protect her from now on.
    Then, both of them return to Varon's "head-quarters" where the leader puts that dreadful Oracle symbol on her forehead.
    Mai then tells Joey to make his move.
