Featured Duel: Yami Yugi vs. Arkana, Part 2
Turn 5: Yami
Yami Yugi draws. He then Normal Summons "Beta The Magnet Warrior" (1700/1600) in Attack Position. Since Yami Yugi summoned a monster, Arkana activates his face-down "Dark Renewal" to Tribute both "Beta The Magnet Warrior" and "Mystic Tomato" and Special Summon "Dark Magician" from his Graveyard (2500/2100) in Attack Position. Yami Yugi Sets two cards.
Turn 10: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Sets one card. Arkana then activates his face-down "The Mystical Guillotine" to destroy Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician", but Yami Yugi activates his face-down "Magical Hats" to create four Hats, hide his "Dark Magician in one of them and shuffle the hats up. "Mystical Guillotine" destroys a "Hat", but it turns out to be empty.
Arkana activates his face-down "Thousand Knives" to automatically destroy the hat that contains Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician", but Yami Yugi activates his face-down "Cursebreaker" to negate and destroy both "Thousand Knives" and "Magical Hats".
Arkana's "Dark Magician" attacks Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician". Both monsters are then destroyed in a Double KO. Both Arkana and Yami Yugi then activate their face-down "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon their respective "Dark Magician" from the Graveyard (2500/2100 for both) in Attack Position.
Turn 11: Yami
Yami Yugi draws. He then passes his turn.
Turn 14: Arkana
Arkana activates his face-down "Beckon to the Dark" to send Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician" to the Graveyard, but Yami Yugi activates his face-down "Mystical Refpanel" to negate the effect of "Beckon to the Dark" and use the effect of "Beckon to the Dark" on Arkana's "Dark Magician" instead. Arkana then activates his face-down "Nightmare's Chains" to negate "Mystical Refpanel's" effect and destroy it. The secondary effect of "Nightmare's Chains" also forbids Yami Yugi "Dark Magician" from attacking or changing its battle position. Since Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician" is the only monster he controls, the third effect of "Nightmare's Chains" allows Arkana's monsters to attack Yami directly. Arkana's "Dark Magician" attacks directly (Yami 4000 → 1500).
Turn 16: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Normal Summons "Doll of Demise" (1600/1700) in Attack Position. He then activates "Ectoplasmer", which will let the turn player choose two types of monsters to be converted into ectoplasm, with half of the turn player's Tributed monsters' ATK being inflicted as damage to their opponents during each of their turns. Arkana activates the effect of "Ectoplasmer" and selects "Fiend" for its effect, which causes "Doll of Demise" to be Tributed (Yami Yugi 1500 → 700).
Arkana activates the effect of "Ectoplasmer" and selects "Spellcaster" for its effect, which causes his "Dark Magician" to be Tributed, however Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician" is also Tributed too and the damage that Yami Yugi would take is nullified.
Changes to the dub
- "Dark Renewal's" star is given five more points in the dub.
- "Mystic Guillotine's" blade has a glow added to it in the dub.
- A bit showing Pandora/Arkana running from the flames was cut from the dub.
- In the original, "Nightmare's Chains" chained "Dark Magician" to a cross. In the dub, this cross was changed to a slab.
- "Doll of Demise's" axe and knives are obscured in the dub to make it look like its weapons are part of its arms.
- Although both versions eventually state that both of the Dark Magicians were affected by the Ectoplasmer because each player controlled one when the magic card was activated, the Japanese version also makes Yami Yugi's card choose to sacrifice itself for him, instead of just the magic card affecting both.
