"Yugi vs. Pegasus: Match of the Millennium, Part 2", known as "Attacks Useless!? The Invincible Army of Toons" in the Japanese version, is the thirty-sixth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. It first aired in Japan on December 26, 2000 and in the United States on September 21, 2002.
As the Duel between Yugi Muto and Maximillion Pegasus continues, Bakura, under the control of Yami Bakura, leaves the group to search for Tristan. He finds him with Mokuba's body and being cornered by two guards. Bakura uses "Chain Energy" to trap them, allowing him and Tristan to escape.
Back at the Duel, Yugi tries to use "Spellbinding Circle" on "Ryu-Ran", but Pegasus's "Trap Displacement" changes its target to Yugi's "Summoned Skull", allowing "Ryu-Ran" to destroy it. He then activates "Toon World", turning his monsters to Toon monsters ("Toon Mermaid", "Manga Ryu-Ran", and "Toon Summoned Skull"). This makes them invulnerable to non-Toon monsters. When Yugi goes on the defensive, Pegasus activates "Gorgon's Eye"; whenever a Defense Position monster on Yugi's side of the field is destroyed, half of its DEF is subtracted from his Life Points!
Now what can Yugi do? Attacking is useless, and playing monsters in Defense Position will damage his Life Points. To make matters worse, Pegasus can read his mind and know all of his moves. Meanwhile, Tristan and Bakura are once again cornered by guards on top of a stairwell. Can they escape them?
Featured Duel: Yami Yugi vs. Maximillion Pegasus
|This Duel uses Duelist Kingdom gameplay. Rules and card effects may differ from that of the TCG/OCG. See the individual card articles for more information.|
Yugi has 1800 LP remaining and controls a Set monster and no other Set cards.
Pegasus has 2000 LP remaining and controls "Ryu-Ran" (2200/2600) and "Red Archery Girl" (1400/1500) both in Defense Position and a Set card.
Turn 8: Pegasus
Pegasus draws. He then switches "Ryu-Ran" to Attack Position. "Ryu-Ran" attacks "Summoned Skull", but Yugi activates his face-down "Spellbinding Circle" to forbid "Ryu-Ran" from attacking or changing its battle position and decrease its ATK by 700 ("Ryu-Ran": 2200 → 1500/2600).
Turn 9: Yami Yugi
Yugi switches "Summoned Skull" to Attack Position. "Summoned Skull" attacks "Ryu-Ran", but Pegasus activates his face-down "Trap Displacement" to transfer the effect of "Spellbinding Circle" to "Summoned Skull". This forbids "Summoned Skull" from attacking or changing its battle position and decreases its ATK by 700 ("Summoned Skull": 2500 → 1800/1200, "Ryu-Ran": 1500 → 2200/2600).
Turn 10: Pegasus
"Ryu-Ran" attacks and destroys "Summoned Skull" (Yugi: 1800 → 1400 LP).
Turn 11: Yami Yugi
Yugi draws, then passes his turn.
Turn 12: Pegasus
Pegasus draws. He then activates "Toon World", transforming "Red Archery Girl" and "Ryu-Ran" into their Toon counterparts: "Toon Mermaid" (1400/1500) and "Manga Ryu-Ran" (2200/2600) respectively. "Manga Ryu-Ran" attacks and destroys Yugi's Set "Giant Soldier of Stone" (1300/2000). Pegasus then uses the effect of "Toon World" to hide "Manga Ryu-Ran" within its pages. This means that Yugi cannot attack "Manga Ryu-Ran" while it's within "Toon World". Pegasus then switches "Toon Mermaid" to Attack Position.
Turn 13: Yami Yugi
Yugi draws. He then Normal Summons "Celtic Guardian" (1400/1200) in Attack Position. "Celtic Guardian" attacks "Toon Mermaid", with Yugi intending to destroy both monsters in a Double KO as they have equal ATK. However, only "Celtic Guardian" is destroyed because Toon monsters cannot be destroyed by battle with non-Toon monsters. Pegasus then uses the effect of "Toon World" to hide "Toon Mermaid" within its pages. This means that Yugi cannot attack "Toon Mermaid" while it's within "Toon World".
Turn 14: Pegasus
Pegasus Sets two cards.
Turn 15: Yami Yugi
Yugi draws. Yugi's hand contains "Feral Imp", "Monster Recovery", "Magical Hats" and "Horn Imp". Yugi Sets "Horn Imp". Pegasus activates his face-down "Gorgon's Eye", flipping "Horn Imp" face-up (1300/1000) and turning it to stone. While "Gorgon's Eye" is face-up on the field, when a Defense Position monster Yugi controls is destroyed, Yugi will take effect damage equal to half that monster's DEF.
Turn 16: Pegasus
Pegasus draws. He then activates his face-down "Doppleganger" and targets Yugi's "Summoned Skull" for the effect of "Doppleganger". "Doppleganger" is Special Summoned as "Summoned Skull" (2500/1200) in Attack Position. "Toon World" then transforms "Summoned Skull" into "Toon Summoned Skull" (2500/1200). "Toon Summoned Skull" attacks and destroys "Horn Imp". The effect of "Gorgon's Eye" activates (Yugi: 1400 → 900 LP). Pegasus then uses the effect of "Toon World" to hide "Toon Summoned Skull" within the pages of "Toon World".
Turn 17: Yami Yugi
Yugi draws "Dark Magician".
- Before Pegasus activates "Toon World", his "Ryu-Ran" is shown to be horizontal, suggesting Defense Position, even though he just attacked Yugi's "Summoned Skull" with it.
