Kaiba faced Yugi in the second semi-final. He created a holographic Colosseum of spectators around the top of the tower for the Duel.
Kaiba tried to Summon "Obelisk the Tormentor" at an early stage, but Yami Yugi manages to counter both his attempts. Kaiba stole "Slifer the Sky Dragon" from Yugi's Deck using "Lullaby of Obedience". However Yami took it back with "Exchange", which he had been planning to use on "Obelisk". Yami and Kaiba each managed to Summon their respective Egyptian Gods. The two constantly altered the Gods' ATK or blocked each others attacks, preventing the other from destroying their God. Kaiba attempted to win using "Obelisk's" effect, tributing two monsters to inflict 4000 damage to Yami, but Yami discarded "Kuriboh" to protect himself. Eventually the two Gods attacked each other and after a number of alterations each ended up with 4000 ATK and destroyed each other.
The battle of Gods caused Yami Yugi and Kaiba's consciousness to be transported to an ancient city. Here they saw "Obelisk" and "Slifer" turned to stone, while elsewhere, the Sorcerer Seto and Nameless Pharaoh battled. The Sorcerer told the Pharaoh that he's powerless in the face of the darkness and the land will soon meet the fate of its destruction. When questioned as to why he joined the forces of darkness, the sorcerer replied that he and his followers had allegiance to neither the Dark One nor the Pharaoh. The Sorcerer Summoned Blue-Eyes White Dragon from a tablet and the Pharaoh countered with Dark Magician. The two returned to present time. Kaiba asked if Yami had the same vision as he did. Yami claimed that their Duel is related to the one from 3000 years ago (5000 years in the English dub), and Kaiba said their Duel is destined. (In the English version, Kaiba calls the vision an illusion.)
Kaiba and Yami continued the Duel. They quickly Summoned "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and "Dark Magician" respectively. Kaiba used "Lord of Dragons" and "The Flute of Summoning Dragon" to bring out his other two "Blue-Eyes White Dragons". Yugi used it to Summon Joey's "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" from his own hand. Yami blocked the attacks from two of the three dragons, destroying one of them and "Lord of Dragons" in the process. Kaiba used "Monster Reborn" and "Polymerization" to Summon "Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon", but Yami played "Double Spell" copying Kaiba's last two Magic Cards, allowing him to Summon "Dark Paladin". Yami told Kaiba that if he stands at the top filled with hatred, he won't find real victory. He'll only have to find new hatred, and his future will be filled with endless hatred. Kaiba attacked "Dark Paladin" with "Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon", but Yami used "De-Fusion", splitting the "Ultimate Dragon" into three "Blue-Eyes White Dragons". He used "Diffusion Wave-Motion", allowing "Dark Paladin" to attack all three of them, winning the Duel.
