Major Events

Featured Duel: Yami Yugi vs. Strings, Part 3

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 18: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi's hand contains "Berfomet", "Big Shield Gardna", and "Alpha The Magnet Warrior". Yami Yugi draws "Monster Reborn" and subsequently Sets it. He then Normal Summons "Big Shield Gardna" (100/2600) in Defense Position. Since "Big Shield Gardna" was summoned in Defense Position, the effect of "Slifer the Sky Dragon" activates, decreasing the DEF of "Big Shield Gardna" by 2000 ("Big Shield Gardna": 100/2600 → 600).

Turn 19: Strings
Strings draws ("Slifer": 9000 → 10000/9000 → 10000). During Strings' Standby Phase, the effect of "Lightforce Sword" expires, letting Strings return the card that "Lightforce Sword" removed from play back to his hand ("Slifer": 10000 → 11000/10000 → 11000). "Slifer" attacks and destroys "Big Shield Gardna".

Turn 20: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws "Brain Control". He then activates his face-down "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon "Buster Blader" (2600 → 3100/2300) from his Graveyard in Attack Position. The effect of "Card of Safe Return" then activates ("Slifer": 11000 → 14000/11000 → 14000). Since "Buster Blader" was Summoned in Attack Position, the effect of "Slifer" activates, decreasing the ATK of "Buster Blader" by 2000 ("Buster Blader": 3100 → 1100/2300).

"Buster Blader" attacks "Slifer", but the effect of "Jam Defender" redirects the attack to "Revival Jam". "Buster Blader" destroys "Revival Jam", but "Revival Jam" automatically revives itself (1500/500) in Defense Position due to its effect. The effect of "Card of Safe Return" then activates ("Slifer": 14000 → 17000/14000 → 17000).

Infinite loop

The infinite loop in effect: attack, revive, draw three, repeat.

By anime mechanics, Yami Yugi activates "Brain Control" to take control of "Revival Jam" as it is reviving, Special Summoning it to his side of the field. The effect of "Slifer" then activates, decreasing the DEF of "Revival Jam" by 2000 ("Revival Jam": 1500/500 → 0) and destroying it as its DEF was dropped to 0. "Revival Jam" then automatically revives itself (1500/500), by anime mechanics, to Yami Yugi's side of the field in Defense Position due to its effect. The effect of "Card of Safe Return" activates ("Slifer": 17000 → 20000/17000 → 20000). (Note: From this scene, it can be conjectured that "Slifer's" anime effect does not activate whenever a new monster enters Yugi's field, but rather "Brain Control's" anime mechanics allow it to take control of a monster that is in the middle of being Special Summoned. If the former were true, Yugi could have activated "Brain Control" immediately after drawing it, without having to Summon a monster to attack "Revival Jam".)

The effect of "Slifer" activates again, decreasing the DEF of "Revival Jam" by 2000 and then destroying it as before. "Revival Jam" then automatically revives itself (1500/500) to Yami Yugi's side of the field in Defense Position due to its effect. The effect of "Card of Safe Return" activates ("Slifer": 20000 → 23000/20000 → 23000).

Deck Out

Strings Decks out.

The effect of "Slifer" activates again, decreasing the DEF of "Revival Jam" by 2000 and then destroying it as before. "Revival Jam" then automatically revives itself (1500/500) to Yami Yugi's side of the field in Defense Position due to its effect. The effect of "Card of Safe Return" activates ("Slifer": 23000 → 26000/23000 → 26000).

The effect of "Slifer" activates again, decreasing the DEF of "Revival Jam" by 2000 and then destroying it as before. "Revival Jam" then automatically revives itself (1500/500) to Yami Yugi's side of the field in Defense Position due to its effect. The effect of "Card of Safe Return" activates ("Slifer": 26000 → .../26000 → ...).

The above infinite loop continues until Strings Decks out. (For dramatic effect, "Slifer" is shown collapsing as though defeated, though it was never touched.)

Epilogue

Yami Yugi" obtains "Slifer the Sky Dragon" and a Locator Card from Strings as per the Battle City Rules. Kaiba then demands a Duel to see who gets to keep "Slifer the Sky Dragon", but Marik briefly regains control of Strings to tell Yami Yugi that he is on his way to Battle City and that he is now going to target Yugi's own friends to turn them into his mind slaves and get what he wants. Yami Yugi calls off his Duel with Kaiba for the moment, so he can find his friends before Marik does so first.

Changes to the dub

  • When Téa teases Joey about being scared of Dueling Kaiba, in a scene with his back to her as she hold up one finger, the first yellow marks of being annoyed do not appear in the dub, although the second smaller yellow marks do appear in both versions during a scene with his face shown to her as she turns her head to Solomon.
  • The final shot of Marik riding away up the street is overlaid with a shot of Marik and Yugi facing each other in the dub.

Trivia

  • If Strings was using the minimum Deck size of 40 cards, "Slifer's" maximum ATK would have been 28,000 before Strings Decked out. (This is because of the 5 cards on Strings' field and the 7 he already played.) The manga did the math correctly by replacing "Pot of Greed" with the card "Lightforce Sword" banished.
