Before Syrus could play "Power Bond", Zane called the duel off and gave a rare card to the bully to ensure that he will not tell anyone about this duel and that he will stop bullying his brother. The bully noticed how rare and powerful the card Zane gave to him was and accepted Zane's offer. After the bully left, Zane revealed to Syrus that the bully set this card. Zane explained to Syrus that if he had played "Power Bond", the bully would have activated this card to immobilize his Fusion Monster and the effect damage from "Power Bond" on the End Phase would have caused Syrus to lose the duel.
