Winged Kuriboh assimilated Tragoedia's sins and rested in one side of the Millennium Scales. The Feather of Ma'at was placed in the other. The side of sins, Winged Kuriboh's side, immediately hit the ground and the magnitude of the sins was so much that Winged Kuriboh turned from white to black.[1] White Winged Kuriboh v Feather of Ma'at

Dice game Dark Yugi and the ZTV director played a simple die roll game. Whoever rolled lowest won. If it was a draw the director won. Dark Yugi rolled a 6. The director threw the die at Yugi on his turn, but Dark Yugi blocked it by holding up the Millennium Puzzle. This caused to die to break and land on a 1 and a 6, totaling 7. Dark Yugi inflicted the Mosaic Illusion Penalty Game on he director for losing.[3] YGO-002 Die game
Silence game Dark Yugi and Sozoji sat at opposite ends of a table with Sound Pierrot dolls in front of them. The dolls dance upon hearing noise. The first one to make their doll dance lost. Sozoji thought he was going to win, as he noticed the jack from Dark Yugi's headphones ready to fall. However he got anxious, causing his heart to beat, while he was holding his microphone next to it. The sound of his heart was amplified on a speaker beside Sozoji, causing his doll to dance. Dark Yugi inflicted the Beat Festival Penalty Game on Sozoji for losing.[4] YGO-003 Shadow Game
One finger BATTLE! Dark Yugi and the escaped prisoner were each allowed to only use one of their ten fingers. The player to die loses. The prisoner chose his right index finger, so he could shoot Dark Yugi with his gun. Dark Yugi chose his left thumb and lit a cigarette lighter with. He was allowed to light the cigarette in the prisoner's hand before being shot. But after doing so, he placed in the lighter on the prisoner's left arm, which was pouring vodka. If the prisoner pulled the trigger, the lighter would fall into the overflowing vodka, setting him on fire. His cigarette fell into the vodka, incinerating him.[5] YGO-004 Shadow Game
Paper Crash! A bottle of chloroform was placed on a number of sheets on the center of a table. Players took turns pulling sheets out from under the bottle, trying not to break the bottle. One one of his turns Dark Yugi managed to cause the the bottle to stop partly over the edge of the table. He said if Kokurano really was a psychic, he should be able to make the bottle levitate. Kokurano tried this, but only imagined the bottle floating. He pulled a sheet causing the bottle to smash and got knocked out by the chloroform.[6] YGO-005 Shadow Game
Griddle Ice Hockey Griddle Ice Hockey was an air hockey-like Shadow Game Dark Yugi played against Goro Inogashira. A giant heated grill and spatulas were used as the field and bats. A test tube of explosive chemicals embedded in a block of ice was used as a puck. Players used their bats to hit the chemicals towards their opponent. If the chemicals touched the hot grill, a player could be injured by the explosion. Goro initially had the upperhand as he dealt powerful blows, but Dark Yugi managed to crack the ice, such that it broke next time Goro hit it, causing the chemicals to explode in front of him.[7] YGO-006 Shadow Game
Dark Puzzle Ms. Chono put together Hiroto Honda's love jigsaw puzzle for Miho Nosaka in front of the class and threatened to expel the sender. Dark Yugi used the Millennium Puzzle to change the nature of the jigsaw puzzle to a Shadow Game. As Ms. Chono solved the jigsaw, she hurt herself as much as she hurt others. This caused the make-up on her face to peel away like pieces of a jigsaw and revealed her ugly face.[8] YGO-007 Chono works on the puzzle
Coin in sneaker A scorpion and ten coins were placed inside an Air Muscle shoe. Each player took turns trying to grab coins without getting stung. For the first few turns, each player got one coin at a time. The Junky Scorpion owner then tried killing the scorpion by sticking a knife into the shoe and grabbing all the remaining coins. However he failed to kill the scorpion and by grabbing too many coins, his fist was too big to fit back out of the foot hole. The scorpion then proceeded to sting the owner.[9] YGO-008 Shadow Game
Duel Monsters
(Dark Yugi and Kaiba)
Dark Yugi and Seto Kaiba played a Shadow Game of Duel Monsters, where the monsters Summoned came to life and the cards were destroyed when the monsters were killed. Kaiba cheated in the Duel, by slipping in the "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" card he had stolen, from his pocket to his hand. However when he tried attacking "Blue-Eyes" refused to obey as its loyalties lay with Sugoroku, so it destroyed itself and Dark Yugi resurrected it with "Monster Reborn". Dark Yugi won and inflicted the Experience of Death Penalty Game on Kaiba.[10][11] YGO-010 Blue-Eyes refuses to attack
Landmine Search Network Dark Yugi allowed himself to be beaten around a bit by Hirutani's gang, while he made a makeshift trap; he positioned an unconscious gangster's arm holding a stun gun on a vertical bar over a puddle of water. He tied his Millennium Puzzle to a chain over the gangster's forehead and stood on a tire over the puddle. He warned the gang that there was a time bomb and they would suffer a Penalty Game if they didn't find the switch.
The gang initially believed their own stun guns to be the switch, since they were standing in water and covered in water and would shock themselves by switching them on. However water dripped from the Millennium Puzzle to the unconscious member's forehead, causing him to wake up and drop his stun gun in the puddle, shocking the other gangsters.[12]
Landmine Search Network
Question of Truth Shadi performed the Weighing of the Heart on Curator Kanekura. Shadi placed the Feather of Ma'at on one side of the Millennium Scales and asked Kanekura a series of questions. If Kanekura told the truth, the side with the feather would lower. If he lied the other would lower. The side of lies hit the table after a few questions and Kanekura suffered a Penalty Game, which killed him.[13] Shadi performs Kanekura's weighing
Labyrinth Treasure Hunt Shadi searched Dark Yugi's soul room to find the true power of the Millennium Puzzle. However Dark Yugi turned the search into a Shadow Game and revealed that his soul room was a maze of stairs and doorways filled with traps. After finding the true soul room, Shadi would see the power he was looking for. However he eventually fell into one of the traps, but was saved by Dark Yugi.[14] Labyrinth Treasure Hunt
Trial of the Mind Shadi redecorated Anzu's soul room, turning her into a mindless doll. He stood her on a board suspended over the side of a building by four ropes strung through a fence and tied to four ushebti. The four ropes were also strung through the Millennium Key, which was held up by a fifth ushebti. If the first four ushebti broke, the board would lose its support and Anzu would fall to her death. If the fifth ushebti broke first, the Millennium Key would slide along the ropes and touch Anzu's hand, returning her to normal.
The four ushebti supporting the board represented Dark Yugi's heart and would break if a weakness in his heart was detected. The other ushebti represented Shadi's heart and would break if a weakness was detected in it. Shadi put Dark Yugi through a number of stages to try and expose weakness in Dark Yugi's heart, but in the end Dark Yugi and his friends showed Shadi the power of unity, which caused Shadi's ushebti to break.[15]
Weighing of the Mind
Hell Quiz This riddle was the first stage Shadi used to try to expose a weakness in Dark Yugi's heart. Shadi created the illusion of zombies breaking out of the ground and grabbing onto Dark Yugi. The only way for the illusion to disappear was for Dark Yugi to determine the true nature of the illusion using the riddle "What creeps on the ground and clings to the pillars?". Dark Yugi was the pillar for the clue and the zombies were what clung to him. The answer to the riddle was a shadow, so the zombies were his shadow.[16] Hell Quiz
Concentration or Death Concentration or Death was the second stage Shadi used to try to expose a weakness in Dark Yugi's heart. An illusion of Ammit appeared out of the ground and grabbed onto Dark Yugi. Although she was an illusion her bite could still kill Dark Yugi. Nine face-down plates appeared before Dark Yugi. The plates represented a mirror and contained four pairs and one extra. Dark Yugi needed to say what the extra plate depicted within five minutes or he would be bitten by Ammit. Since the plates represented a mirror, Dark Yugi realized that the four pairs were four visible parts of Ammit that she had two of; eyes, ears, nostrils and arms and the odd plates was something she had one of; her mouth.[17] Concentration or Death
Game of Death The Game of Death was the last stage Shadi used to try to expose a weakness in Dark Yugi's heart. An illusion of Jonouchi, who had his old bully persona, was created. The Jonouchi illusion took the Millennium Puzzle from Dark Yugi and a bottomless pit appeared around them. The players were to take turns tossing the puzzle, which would cause their opponent to move two tiles in the direction it landed pointing, with the intention of making them walk over the edge. This stage succeeded in breaking two ushebti, as regular Yugi briefly had a moment of control of his body and wept seeing Jonouchi in his old persona. Dark Yugi refused to take his turns and relied on his trust that his friend wouldn't kill him. This caused the illusion of Jonouchi to stop playing and disappear.[18] Game of Death (Shadi)
Maze of Fire Dark Yugi sprayed paint along the ground as he got chased by thugs with knives. Meanwhile, a cigarette butt burned away on the ground. Once the thugs cornered Dark Yugi, he directed their attention to the paint and the cigarette, which was being used as a fuse. The flame from the cigarette hit the paint, setting it on fire. The created a "Maze of Fire" separating the thugs from Yugi. With the legs of their trousers on fire, the three thugs ran away and leaped into the nearby canal.[19] Maze of Fire

Red Paint Lottery Dark Yugi played a Shadow Game against the ZTV technician, who on behalf of the producer had rigged The Get the Million Game for Jonouchi to lose. Dark Yugi and the technician tied their hands to ropes, one of which was tied to an overhead paint bucket. The two of them pulled their ropes at the same time. The paint bucket turned out to be attached to the technician's rope and landed on his head. This made him unable to press the button which rigged Jonouchi's game. The director was also unable to push the button, as the switchboard had been covered in paint, preventing him from distinguishing the necessary button from the others. Dark Yugi inflicted the Mind on Air Penalty Game on the director, causing him to run out on set and demand the viewers to sent him money.[28] YGO-042 Wet paint game
Monster Fighter
(Dark Yugi VS Nagumo)

Dark Yugi won the first round by taking advantage of Nagumo slipping his attention from the game as he attempted to make an outside interference. Nagumo won the second round by cheating, so Dark Yugi upped the level of the Shadow Game from 1 to 3 for the final round. This time Nagumo was unable to cheat as his monsters held him back.
