The real Dark Yugi's consciousness left to the underworld, following the Ceremonial Battle. Dark Yugi's rival, Seto Kaiba, was still eager to face him in another Duel and made attempts to communicate with him, including building a virtual reconstruction of him, using his own memories.
At the KaibaCorp space station, Virtual Dark Yugi and Kaiba Dueled in a church-like virtual-reality setting. Kaiba eventually won, but was disappointed, since he believed he had not accurately recreated Dark Yugi.
Virtual Dark Yugi's Deck is based on the Deck used by the real Dark Yugi.
