"The Wrath of Rebecca", known as "The Girl who Came from America" in the Japanese version, is the forty-first episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. It first aired in Japan in February 6, 2001 and in the United States on October 12, 2002.
In Pegasus' Castle, Yugi and his friends are reunited with Bakura and Mokuba. Croquet gives Yugi the check for the three million dollar prize, then Yugi gives it to Joey. Outside the castle, the gang meet up with Seto, who is grateful to see Mokuba, but warns Yugi they will Duel sooner or later. He then offers everyone a ride home on his helicopter. A few days later, Solomon is released from the hospital. Yugi and his friends take him home, where they find an American girl waiting for them. She introduces herself as Rebecca, a twelve-year old (an eight-year old in the dub) prodigy Duelist who is accusing Solomon of stealing her "Blue-Eyes White Dragon". She demands it back, but the gang and Solomon have a problem with this as Seto ripped it up in the first episode.
Rebecca challenges Solomon to a Duel for it, but since he just got out of the hospital, Yugi (not Yami) takes his place. They duel at the new arena in KaibaLand. During the Duel, Solomon notices Rebecca's Deck and strategy is very similar to an old friend of his named Arthur Hawkins. Finally, Rebecca reveals herself to be his granddaughter, but continues to accuse him. Will she defeat Yugi and learn the truth about what happened to her card?
Featured Duel: Yugi Muto vs. Rebecca HawkinsEdit
Turn 2: Yugi
Yugi Muto draws. He then Normal Summons "Celtic Guardian" in Attack Position (1400 ATK / 1200 DEF). "Celtic Guardian" attacks and destroys "Witch of the Black Forest" (Rebecca 2000 → 1700 Life Points). Since "Witch of the Black Forest" was sent from the field to the Graveyard, its effect activates, allowing Rebecca Hawkins to add 1 monster with 1500 or lower DEF from her Deck to her hand.
Turn 4: Yugi
"Celtic Guardian" attacks and destroys "Sangan" (Rebecca 1700 → 1300 Life Points). Since "Sangan" was sent from the field to the Graveyard, its effect activates, allowing Rebecca to add 1 monster with 1500 or lower ATK from her Deck into her hand.
Turn 6: Yugi
Yugi Normal Summons "Summoned Skull" in Attack Position (2500 ATK / 1200 DEF). "Summoned Skull" attacks Rebecca's Set monster. It is revealed to be "Millennium Shield" (0 ATK / 3000) DEF). Since the DEF of "Millennium Shield" is higher than the ATK of "Summoned Skull", the attack fails (Yugi 2000 → 1500 Life Points).
Turn 7: Rebecca
Rebecca draws. She then activates Equip Magic Card "Ring of Magnetism", equipping it onto "Millennium Shield" and decreasing its DEF by 500 ("Millennium Shield": 0 ATK / 3000 → 2500 DEF). Now if Yugi's monsters attack, they will be forced to attack "Millennium Shield" as long as it is equipped with "Ring of Magnetism".
Turn 10: Yugi
"Summoned Skull" attacks "Cannon Soldier", but due to the effect "Ring of Magnetism", the attack is redirected to "Millennium Shield". Since the DEF of "Millennium Shield" is equal to the ATK of "Summoned Skull", the attack ends in a draw.
Turn 11: Rebecca
Rebecca draws "Shadow Ghoul". She then Normal Summons another "Witch of the Black Forest" in Attack Position (1100 ATK /1200 DEF). She then activates "Cannon Soldier's" effect, tributing "Witch of the Black Forest" to inflict 500 points of damage to Yugi (Yugi 1500 → 1000 Life Points). Since "Witch of the Black Forest" has been sent from the field to the Graveyard, its effect activates, allowing Rebecca to add 1 monster with 1500 or lower DEF from her Deck to her hand.
- When Rebecca Summons "Cannon Soldier", in both versions it is shown to have 400 ATK instead of 1400.
- "Millennium Shield" is shown to be an Effect Monster, whereas in the real game it is a Normal Monster.
Differences in adaptationsEdit
- Cut from the dub where Yami Bakura says 'Millennium Eye got!' and licks the eye.
- The Japanese version shows Rebecca getting weepy, and then making a rude gesture, while the US version is changed to show Rebecca looking upset while she rails at Yugi after he destroys "Sangan".
- All the sweatdrops on Yugi's head are removed in the dub.
