Dark Yugi and Maico's Duel was a Project R.A. Duel in Yu-Gi-Oh! R between Dark Yugi and Maico Kato.


Prior events

Macio was one of the thirteen Card Professors hired by Yako Tenma to face Yugi Mutou during Project R.A.

After defeating Kirk Dixon, Yugi reached a point where his key card couldn't take him any further. He looked around for a Duelist and spotted Maico. At first, he didn't think Maico was a Duelist and asked her if she'd seen one. He pointed to his Duel Disk and asked if she'd seen anyone with something like that attached to their arm. Maico replied that she hadn't, but showed knowledge of Duel Monsters and soon identified herself as his opponent. A Duel Disk floded out of a compartment on Maico's wheelchair and Yugi switched to Dark Yugi.

Dark Yugi said it looked like Maico was a real Duelist after all. Maico replied that she was happy to hear that from the Duel King himself and wondered what she would buy for her grandchildren when she won the cash reward. Dark Yugi apologized and said that he was the one going to win.

Dark Yugi's turn

Dark Yugi Summoned "Jack's Knight" (ATK: 1800) and got it to attack "Leprechaun". However Maico activated "Deep Forest", allowing "Leprechaun" to hide from the attack.

Maico's turn

Maico Set a card in the Spell & Trap Card Zone.

"Leprechaun" attacked "Jack's Knight" and the effect of "Posion Crossbow" destroyed "Jack's Knight".

With a member of the Forest family destroyed (In the English manga, the requirement was a Beast-Type monster), Maico was able to pay 1000 Life Points (Maico: 2500 → 1500 Life Points) Special Summon "Green Baboon, Defender of the Forest" (ATK: 2600). Maico explained that the woods were weeping the death of one of its residents and this caused the forest's guardian to appear to get revenge.

Maico's turn

Dark Yugi thought he would be safe as he could use the effect of "Deep Forest" to hide "Gazelle" from attacks. However "Maico" equipped "Chameleon Colors" to "Green Baboon" camouflaging him into the forest and allowing him to attack Dark Yugi directly (Dark Yugi: 4000 → 1400 Life Points).
