Major Events

Featured Duel: Yami Yugi vs. Seeker, Part 2

Duel continued from previous episode.

Turn 5: Yami
Yami Yugi draws. He then Sets 1 card. "Chimera the Flying Mythical Beast" attacks and destroys "Stone Statue of the Aztecs".

Turn 6: Seeker
Seeker is about to draw "Left Arm of the Forbidden One", but Yami activates "Time Seal" to skip Seeker's Draw Phase. Seeker passes his turn.

Turn 7: Yami
Yami draws "Lightforce Sword" and subsequently activates it to remove 1 random card from Seeker's hand from play for 3 turns; Yami Yugi removes the "Right Arm of the Forbidden One" in Seeker's hand from play. Yami then Tributes "Chimera the Flying Mythical Beast" to Tribute Summon "Summoned Skull" (2500/1200) in Attack Position. "Summoned Skull" attacks and destroys "Gear Golem the Moving Fortress".

Turn 8: Seeker
Seeker draws "Left Arm of the Forbidden One". He then activates "Swords of Revealing Light". Now every monster Yami controls can't attack for 3 turns and every monster he controls must be face-up.

Turn 9: Yami
Yami draws. He then passes.

Turn 10: Seeker
Seeker draws "Head of Exodia". He then passes.

Turn 11: Yami
Yami draws a card and subsequently Sets it. He then Normal Summons "Alpha The Magnet Warrior" (1400/1700) in Attack Position.

Turn 12: Seeker
Seeker draws "Right Leg of the Forbidden One". Seeker's hand contains two "Heads of Exodia", two "Right Legs", "Left Leg of the Forbidden One", "Left Arm of "Exodia", and "Giant Soldier of Stone". He then Normal Summons "Head of Exodia" (1000/1000) in Defense Position. Since Seeker Normal Summoned a monster, Yami activates "Chain Destruction" to destroy every copy of "Head of Exodia" in Seeker's Deck and hand. Yami then activates "Dust Tornado" to destroy "Swords of Revealing Light".

Turn 13: Yami
Yami draws. He then activates "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon "Chimera the Flying Mythical Beast" (2100/1800) from his Graveyard in Attack Position. "Chimera the Flying Mythical Beast" attacks and destroys "Head of Exodia". "Summoned Skull" attacks Seeker directly (Seeker 4000 → 1500). "Alpha The Magnet Warrior" then attacks Seeker directly. Due to the effect of "Alpha the Magnet Warrior", it gains 200 ATK during the Damage Step as "Summoned Skull" had already attacked ("Alpha The Magnet Warrior": 1400 → 1600/1700). The attack then hits Seeker's Life Points (Seeker 1500 → 0).

Yami Yugi wins.

Epilogue
Yami takes back Joey's "Red-Eyes Black Dragon" and a Locator Card. He then destroys the rest of Seeker's Deck as they are all counterfeit cards. (In the dub, it was because the cards were marked with invisible ink.)

Changes to the English Version

  • In the Japanese version, Joey wants to Duel Yugi in the Battle City finals. In the dub he wants to help Yugi save the world.
  • In the Japanese version, Joey gives "Red Eyes Black Dragon" to Yugi and says that he will accept it back once he defeats him. In the dub, he gives him the card because he might need it to defeat Marik.
  • Cut from the dub: Téa spotting Yugi and Joey shaking hands at the plaza.
  • Cut from the dub: Téa chasing Yugi and Joey.
  • In the English anime, the five pieces of "Exodia" show two "Right arms".
  • In the English anime, all of Seeker's cards were real, but they were all marked with invisible ink.
  • In the English anime, when Chain Destruction is activated, the chain piercing Exodia's head (and subsequently Seeker's Deck) is obscured by a flash of light.
  • In the Japanese, when Yugi explains Exodia's weakness, all five cards are shown behind him but in the dub, some of those 5 cards are duplicates.

Errors

  • After Seeker draws the second head, his hand is shown with all five pieces in his hand. Obviously, this was not the case.
  • At one point in the Duel, Seeker knows what "Exodia" piece is coming next and he thinks it's the exact one he needs to win by "Exodia's" effect but in the dub, it's the same one as one already in his hand.

Trivia

  • This is one of the few, if not the only, Duel where Yugi's/Yami's Life Points are not reduced to a critical low. In fact, Yugi/Yami didn't lose ANY Life Points this Duel, as Seeker's entire strategy was to stall with high defense monsters until he obtained all the pieces of "Exodia".
  • This is also one of the few Duels where a rule was made up that didn't seem necessary for plot, advantage purposes, or dramatic/comedic effect. Technically, Yugi/Yami didn't need to activate the made-up effect of "Summoned Skull" to power up "Alpha The Magnet Warrior", as he could have instead used "Alpha The Magnet Warrior" to destroy Seeker's "Head of Exodia", then use "Summoned Skull" and "Chimera the Flying Mythical Beast" to defeat Seeker in one turn.
