Keith's Machinations, Part 2, known as Travel Through Time! Red Eyes Black Metal Dragon in the Japanese version, is the thirty-second episode of Yu-Gi-Oh!. It aired in Japan on November 28, 2000, and in the US on September 7, 2002.

Bandit Keith and Joey Wheeler continue their Duel, with Keith eventually having to contend with Joey's mimicry of his battle strategy and the more powerful "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon".


The second Duel of the Duelist Kingdom finals continues between Joey Wheeler and Bandit Keith. The Duel remains close until Keith Summons "Barrel Dragon", a 2600 ATK monstrosity with the effect of being able to destroy up to three monsters in one attack. Not even Joey's "Time Wizard"/"Baby Dragon" combo can defeat it.

However, Joey turns the Duel around by using "Copycat" as "Magic Metal Force", transforming his "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" into a "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon". It destroys Keith's "Barrel Dragon", leaving just the Red Eyes and Keith's "Slot Machine" on the field. The Duel goes back and forth with each Duelist powering up his own monster while trying to destroy his opponent's. Keith uses "Pillager" to take Joey's "Shield & Sword", which makes "Slot Machine"'s ATK greater than "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon". However, Joey activates "Graverobber" to take "Time Machine" from Keith's Graveyard, Special Summoning his "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" back to the field with its ATK now higher than that of "Slot Machine". Joey attacks and wins the Duel.

Keith demands the Duel be declared void since Joey used Mai's card. Joey admits this is true and asks how he could have known that. Pegasus, at this point declares that Keith stole Joey's card. Joey calls him a snake and Pegasus also says that Keith cheated by hiding two of his "7 Completed" cards beneath his wrist band. Pegasus orders his guards to take Keith away, but Keith knocks them out cold, jumps towards Pegasus, and points a gun to his head (the gun is removed in the U.S. version), demanding the prize money. Pegasus activates a trap door on the ground, sending Keith through a tunnel and out into the ocean. With Joey the winner, he now has to face Yugi in the next Duel before the final match against Pegasus.

Featured Duel: Joey Wheeler vs. "Bandit" Keith Howard

Continued from previous episode.

Turn 12: Joey
Joey draws. He then passes his turn.

Turn 13: Bandit Keith
Keith draws. He then Sets 1 card and Normal Summons "Barrel Dragon" (2600/2200) in Attack Position. Each of "Barrel Dragon's" 3 revolvers have a 50% chance of attacking. For each revolver that succeeds, it will attack and destroy 1 of Joey's monsters. Two of the revolvers succeed, so "Barrel Dragon" attacks and destroys "Axe Raider" and "Garoozis" (Joey 1150 → 850).

Turn 14: Joey
Joey draws. He then Normal Summons "Baby Dragon" (1200/700) in Attack Position. He then plays "Time Wizard" as a Magic Card instead of a Monster Card. Joey then activates the effect of "Time Wizard". He succeeds in the effect. Since the effect of "Time Wizard" was successful, it transforms "Baby Dragon" into "Thousand Dragon" (2400/2000) and decreases the ATK and DEF of "Barrel Dragon" by 800 ("Barrel Dragon": 2600 → 1800/2200 → 1800). "Thousand Dragon" attacks and destroys "Barrel Dragon". Keith activates "Time Machine" to negate the Battle Damage he would take and Special Summon "Barrel Dragon" as it was during the previous turn (2600/2200) in Attack Position.

Turn 15: Bandit Keith
"Barrel Dragon" attacks and destroys "Thousand Dragon" (Joey 850 → 650).

Turn 16: Joey
Joey draws. He then Sets a monster.

Turn 17: Bandit Keith
Keith draws. He then Normal Summons "Slot Machine" (2000/2300) in Attack Position. "Barrel Dragon" attacks and destroys Joey's Set monster. It's revealed to be "Kojikocy" (1500/1200).

Turn 18: Joey
Joey draws. His hand contains "Armored Lizard", "Rock Ogre Grotto 1", "Shield & Sword", and "Red-Eyes Black Dragon". He then Sets 1 card. Joey Normal Summons "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" (2400/2000) in Attack Position.

Turn 19: Bandit Keith
"Barrel Dragon" attacks "Red-Eyes Black Dragon", but Joey activates "Copycat" and uses its effect to copy the effect of "Magic Metal Force" which transforms his "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" into "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" (2800/2400). "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" destroys "Barrel Dragon" (Keith 1100 → 900). Keith Sets 1 card and switches "Slot Machine" to Defense Position.

Turn 20: Joey
Joey draws. He then Sets 1 card. "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" attacks "Slot Machine", but Keith activates his Set "7 Completed" to equip the latter onto "Slot Machine". Keith then chooses to increase the DEF of "Slot Machine" by 700 ("Slot Machine": 2000/2300 → 3000). The attack fails (Joey 650 → 450).

Turn 21: Bandit Keith
Keith draws. He then takes another "7 Completed" from his wrist band while making it seem as if he "drew" it. Keith then switches "Slot Machine" to Attack Position. He then activates "7 Completed", equipping it onto "Slot Machine". Keith chooses to increase the ATK of "Slot Machine" by 700 ("Slot Machine": 2000 → 2700/3000). Keith then Normal Summons "Blast Sphere" (2900/1400) in Attack Position. Keith then activates the effect of "Blast Sphere", equipping it to "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon". At the end of the turn, it will self-destruct; destroying "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" and then inflicting damage equal to the difference in ATK to Joey's Life Points.[Notes 1]

Keith ends his turn, but Joey activates "Dragon Nails" to equip the latter to "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" and increase its ATK by 600 ("Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon": 2800 → 3400/2400). This makes it stronger than "Blast Sphere". Because of that, Keith takes damage equal to the ATK difference between "Blast Sphere" and "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" (Keith 900 → 400).

Turn 22: Joey
Joey draws. He then passes his turn.

Turn 23: Bandit Keith


7 Completed is activated.

Keith draws "Sword Slasher". His hand contains "Ancient Tool", "Gatekeeper", and "Sword Slasher". Keith takes his last "7 Completed" from his wrist band and then activates it, equipping it onto "Slot Machine". Keith chooses to increase the ATK of "Slot Machine" by 700 ("Slot Machine": 2700 → 3400/3000).

Turn 24: Joey
Joey currently holds (from left to right): "Armored Lizard", "Rock Ogre Grotto #1", "Shield & Sword", and "Lava Battleguard". Joey draws. He then Sets 1 card.

Turn 25: Bandit Keith
Keith draws "Pillager" and subsequently activates it to take 1 card from Joey's hand. Keith chooses to take "Shield & Sword" and add it to his hand. Keith then activates "Shield & Sword" to switch the ATK and DEF of every monster on the field ("Slot Machine": 3400 → 3000/ 3000 → 3400; "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon": 3400 → 2400/2400 → 3400). "Slot Machine" attacks and destroys "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon". Joey then activates "Graverobber" to activate Keith's "Time Machine" from the Graveyard as his card, negating any Battle Damage he would have taken and Special Summoning "Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" as it was during the previous turn (3400/2400) in Attack Position.

Turn 26: Joey
"Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon" attacks and destroys "Slot Machine" (Keith 400 → 0).

Joey wins.
