Playing with a Parasite, Part 2, known as The Steel Knight - Gearfried in the Japanese version, is the sixty-fourth episode of Yu-Gi-Oh!. It aired in Japan on July 17, 2001, and in the US on February 22, 2003.

Featured Duel: Joey Wheeler vs. Weevil Underwood - Part 2

Duel continues from previous episode.

Turn 18: Weevil
Weevil has just managed to summon his "Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth". "Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth" attacks and destroys "Alligator's Sword".

Turn 19: Joey
Joey draws. He then Sets 1 card. Next Joey changes "Panther Warrior" (2000/1600), "Parasite Paracide" (500/300), and "Little-Winguard" (1400/1800) to Attack Position.

Turn 20: Weevil
Weevil Underwood draws a monster and subsequently sets it. "Leghul" attacks directly via its effect (Joey 3100 → 2800). "Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth" attacks "Parasite Paracide", but Joey activates "Skull Dice" to roll a die and divide the ATK of "Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth" by the die result. The die result is a 2, so the ATK of "Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth" is halved ("Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth": 3500 → 1750/3000). Joey then activates "Graceful Dice" to roll a die and multiply the ATK of "Parasite Paracide" by the die result for this turn. The die result is a 4, so the ATK of "Parasite Paracide" is quadrupled ("Parasite Paracide": 500 → 2000/300). "Parasite Paracide" destroys "Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth" (Weevil 5700 → 5450). On Weevil's End Phase, the effect of "Graceful Dice" wears off ("Parasite Paracide": 2000 → 500/300)

Turn 21: Joey
Joey draws. He then passes.

Turn 22: Weevil
Weevil draws. He then Normal Summons "Insect Soldiers of the Sky" (1000/800) in Attack Position. Next Weevil activates "Insecticide" to destroy his Set monster: "Pinch Hopper". Since "Pinch Hopper" was sent from the field to the Graveyard, its effect activates, allowing Weevil to Special Summon "Insect Queen" (2200/2400) from his hand in Attack Position. Due to the effect of "Insect Queen", it gains 200 ATK for each Insect-Type monster on the field. There are currently six ("Insect Queen": 2200 → 3400/2400). Weevil then Tributes "Leghul" in order to allow "Insect Queen" to attack ("Insect Queen": 3400 → 3200/2400). "Insect Queen" attacks and destroys "Little-Winguard" (Joey 2800 → 1000). Since "Insect Queen" destroyed a monster by battle, her effect activates, Special Summoning 1 "Insect Monster Token" (100/100) to Weevil's side of the field in Attack Position.

Turn 23: Joey
Joey draws a card and subsequently sets it.

Turn 24: Weevil
Weevil draws. He then Normal Summons "Cockroach Knight" (800/900) in Attack Position. He then Tributes the latter monster so "Insect Queen" can declare an attack. Since "Cockroach Knight" was sent to the Graveyard, its effect activates, returning it to the top of Weevil's Deck. "Insect Queen" attacks "Panther Warrior", but Joey activates "Magic Arm Shield" to change the attack target of "Insect Queen" to "Insect Soldiers of the Sky" instead. "Insect Queen" destroys "Insect Soldiers of the Sky" (Weevil 5250 → 3250). The effect of "Insect Queen" then activates, Special Summoning 1 "Insect Monster Token" (100/100) in Attack Position to Weevil's side of the field.

Turn 25: Joey
Joey draws. He then changes "Panther Warrior" and "Parasite Paracide" to Defense Position.

Turn 26: Weevil
Weevil draws "Cockroach Knight" and subsequently Normal Summons it (800/900) in Attack Position. He then Tributes "Cockroach Knight", so "Insect Queen" can declare an attack. "Insect Queen" attacks and destroys "Panther Warrior". The effect of "Insect Queen" activates, Special Summoning 1 "Insect Monster Token" (100/100) in Attack Position to Weevil's side of the field.

Turn 27: Joey
Joey draws "Gearfried the Iron Knight". He then Sets 1 card and Normal Summons "Gearfried the Iron Knight" (1800/1600) in Attack Position. Due to the effect of "Gearfried", the effect of "Parasite Paracide" can't change its Type, so it can't become an Insect-type monster. "Gearfried the Iron Knight" attacks and destroys an "Insect Monster Token" (Weevil 3250 → 1550). The ATK of "Insect Queen" becomes lower as an Insect-type monster has been removed from the field ("Insect Queen": 3200 → 3000/2400).

Turn 28: Weevil
Weevil Normal Summons "Soldier Ant" (500/1200) in Attack Position ("Insect Queen": 3000 → 3200/2400). He then activates "Ant Reproduction" to Tribute "Soldier Ant" and Special Summon 10 "Army Ant Tokens" (500/1200) in Attack Position ("Insect Queen": 3200 → 6000/2400). Weevil Tributes an "Army Ant Token" ("Insect Queen": 6000 → 5800/2400) (although it seems like he Tributed all 10), so "Insect Queen" can declare an attack. "Insect Queen" then attacks "Gearfried the Iron Knight", but Joey activates "Graverobber" to activate "Insecticide" from Weevil's Graveyard as his card, allowing Joey to destroy "Insect Queen".

Turn 29: Joey
"Gearfried the Iron Knight" attacks and destroys an "Insect Monster Token" (Weevil 1550 → 0).

Joey wins.

Errors

  • The "Parasite Paracide" card can be seen several times on Weevil's side of the field, on his Duel Disk, and on the laptop readout in place of "Reckless Parasite".
  • In the English dub, Joey calls Gearfried "Gearfield" just before his final attack.
  • After Joey activates "Magical Arm Shield" and Weevil's Life Points decrease, we go back to the hospital and on the laptop we see Weevil's Life Points get decreased to 3250, but then his Life Points suddenly become 0 for a brief second .
  • The scene with "Insect Queen" eating "Leghul" is shown twice when the 2nd should be "Insect Queen" eating "Cockroach Knight" as we see that monster's armor drop to the ground afterwards.
  • Weevil says to Joey that the only cards that have enough attack points to defeat his Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth are Gate Guardian and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, however, even at the time the episode aired, Obelisk the Tormentor could defeat it.
    • It is, however, possible that Weevil was simply unaware of Obelisk's existence at the time, or that he was mentioning notoriously powerful monsters (that he knew Joey wouldn't be able to summon) in an attempt to intimidate Joey.
