"The Master of Magicians, Part 1", known as "The Black Magician User - Pandora" in the Japanese version, is the sixtieth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. It first aired in Japan on June 19, 2001, and in the US on February 8, 2003.

Major events

  • Kaiba faces off against a Battle City Duelist who was harassing another. He uses "Obelisk The Tormentor".
  • Marik now knows where "Obelisk The Tormentor" is after Kaiba used it. He remembers how he stole the other two Egyptian God cards from a cave in Egypt and threatened Ishizu for the final one, also revealing in the flashback that he is her brother.
  • Yami Yugi is told to enter a circus tent by a harlequin whose "master" is wating inside.
    • Yugi enters a real life Mystic Box and disappears into an underground chamber, which blocks the transmission to the KaibaCorp building.
  • He meets Arkana, who also has a "Dark Magician" in his deck, but this one looks different to Yugi's. He challenges Yugi to a Duel.
  • Both Duelists have their ankles locked so they cannot escape. As they lose life points, a Dark Energy Disc will approach them and send them to the Shadow Realm if they lose. A box holding a key will open for the winner.

Featured Duel: Yami Yugi vs. Arkana, Part 1

Turn 1: Yami
Yami draws. He then Sets 1 card and Normal Summons "Alpha The Magnet Warrior" (1400/1700) in Defense Position.

Turn 2: Arkana
Arkana's opening hand contains "The Mystical Guillotine", "Mystic Tomato", "Beckon to the Dark", "Doll of Demise", and "Dark Magician". Since Arkana cheated in shuffling his Deck, he has his own "Dark Magician" in his hand. Arkana draws "Legion the Fiend Jester" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1300/1500) in Defense Position. Arkana intends to Tribute his "Legion" and another monster on his next turn to summon "Dark Magician".

Turn 3: Yami
Yami draws. His hand contains "Card Destruction", "Celtic Guardian", "Kuriboh", "Beaver Warrior", and "Full Moon". Since Yami doesn't trust in Arkana's shuffling, he activates "Card Destruction" to force both players to discard their entire hand and draw cards equal to the number of cards they just discarded. Arkana draws five cards while Yami draws four. Yami then activates "Brain Control" to take control of "Legion the Fiend Jester" until the End Phase. He then Tributes "Legion the Fiend Jester" and "Alpha the Magnet Warrior" to Tribute Summon "Dark Magician" (2500/2100) in Attack Position. "Dark Magician" attacks Arkana directly (Arkana 4000 → 1500).

Duel continues in the next episode.

Differences in adaptations

Dark energy disc

The Japanese saw (left) and the English dark energy disc (right).

  • In the Japanese version, the loser will have their legs cut off by a buzzsaw. In the English dub, the saws are replaced by the Dark Energy Discs
    • The saws glow in the English dub to make them look like Dark Energy Discs.
  • A scene of Zeus sealing the box and Pandora opening it, and tiny little hope left in the bottom of the box, is cut from the English version.
  • Numerous changes were made to shots of the hands of both Duelists, including the addition of Egyptian Gods it would be impossible for them to have. Pictures and details can be found here.
  • The harlequin that points out where Yugi has to go is silent in the Japanese version. In the English dub, he speaks to Yugi while pointing but doesn't move his mouth.

Errors

  • In the English version, many cards in each Duelists' hands are changed to cards that are impossible for them to have.
