Duel Recap

  • 3rd Duel of the Battle City Quarter-Finals.
  • The two Duel in a Dark Game. When a monster is destroyed, its owner will lose pieces of their memory.
  • Mai gets hold of "The Winged Dragon of Ra", but can't use it because her blood is not part of the Royal Egyptians and therefore, can't read the hieratic text on the Card.

Turn 13: Mai
Mai Sets a card ("Gravity Bind").

Turn 14: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws. He then Normal Summons "Holding Legs" (800/600) in Attack Position.

Yami Marik then Special Summons "Sacred Stone of Ojhat" (?/?) in Attack Position as he controls "Holding Arms" and "Holding Legs". "Holding Arms" and "Holding Legs" attack Mai directly (Mai 2100 → 1300 → 800). Marik then chants the ancient text on "The Winged Dragon of Ra" to gain control of it and unlock it ("The Winged Dragon of Ra": ???? → 5400/???? → 3900). "The Winged Dragon of Ra" attacks Mai directly (Mai 800 → 0).
