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 Yu-Gi-Oh!. It aired in Japan on December 26, 2000, and in the US 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' "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 Toons ("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

Duel continued from previous episode.

Turn 7: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi Sets 1 card and Normal Summons "Summoned Skull" (2500/1200) in Defense Position.

Turn 8: Pegasus
Pegasus draws. He then switches "Ryu-Ran" (2200/2600) to Attack Position. "Ryu-Ran" attacks "Summoned Skull", but Yami Yugi activates "Spellbinding Circle" to forbid "Ryu-Ran" from attacking and decrease its ATK by 700 ("Ryu-Ran": 2200 → 1500/2600).

Turn 9: Yami Yugi
Yami switches "Summoned Skull" to Attack Position. "Summoned Skull" attacks "Ryu-Ran", but Pegasus activates "Trap Displacement" to transfer the effect of "Spellbinding Circle" to "Summoned Skull". This forbids "Summoned Skull" from attacking and decreases the ATK of "Summoned Skull" ATK by 700 ("Summoned Skull": 2500 → 1800/1200; "Ryu-Ran": 1500 → 2200/2600).

Turn 10: Pegasus
"Ryu-Ran" attacks and destroys "Summoned Skull" (Yami 1800 → 1400).

Turn 11: Yami Yugi
Yami draws. He then passes his turn.

Turn 12: Pegasus
Pegasus draws. He then activates "Toon World". Its magic power transforms "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 Yami Yugi's Set monster. It is revealed to be "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 Yami can't attack "Manga Ryu-Ran" while it's within "Toon World". Pegasus then switches "Toon Mermaid" to Attack Position.

Turn 13: Yami Yugi
Yami draws. He then Normal Summons "Celtic Guardian" (1400/1200) in Attack Position. "Celtic Guardian" attacks "Toon Mermaid". Yami Yugi believes that both monsters will be destroyed because their ATKs are equal. However, Toon Monsters cannot be destroyed by non-Toon Monsters, so only "Celtic Guardian" is destroyed. Pegasus then uses the effect of "Toon World" to hide "Toon Mermaid" within its pages. This means that Yami can't attack "Toon Mermaid" while it's within "Toon World".

Turn 14: Pegasus
Pegasus Sets 2 cards.

Turn 15: Yami Yugi
Yami's hand contains "Feral Imp", "Monster Recovery", "Magical Hats", and "Horn Imp". He then Sets a monster. Pegasus activates his Set "Gorgon's Eye". From now on, each Defense Position monster on Yami Yugi field will be turned to stone. Yami's Set monster is revealed to be "Horn Imp" (1300/1000).

Turn 16: Pegasus
Pegasus draws. He then activates "Doppelganger" and chooses Yami's "Summoned Skull" as the target for the effect of "Doppelganger". "Doppelganger" is Special Summoned to the field as "Summoned Skull" with the same stats 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". As a petrified monster was destroyed, Yami takes damage equal to half its DEF (Yami 1400 → 900). Pegasus then uses the effect of "Toon World" to hide "Toon Summoned Skull" within the pages of "Toon World".

Turn 17: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws "Dark Magician".

Duel continues next episode.
