Major events

  • Many abilities of "The Winged Dragon of Ra" are revealed.

Featured Duel: Yami Bakura vs. Yami Marik, Part 2

Duel continued from previous episode.

Turn 6: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws "Vengeful Bog Spirit" and subsequently activates it. Now monsters on the field can't attack the turn they are summoned.

Turn 7: Yami Bakura
Yami Bakura's hand contains "Premature Burial", "The Portrait's Secret", "The Winged Dragon of Ra", and Spirit Message "N". Yami Bakura draws. He then Tributes "Headless Knight", "Goblin Zombie", and "The Earl of Demise" in order to Tribute Summon "The Winged Dragon of Ra" (????/????) in Attack Position, but Yami Marik activates his face-down "Joyful Doom" to decrease the Tributed monsters' ATK to 0 before they are Tributed and increase his Life Points by the total decreased amount (Yami Marik 4000 → 8550). "The Winged Dragon of Ra's" original ATK and DEF is equal to the ATK and DEF of every monster used for its Tribute Summon ("The Winged Dragon of Ra": ???? → 0/???? → 3450). Yami Bakura switches "Puppet Master" and "The Winged Dragon of Ra" to Defense Position.

Turn 8: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws. "Drillago" attacks and destroys "Puppet Master". Yami Marik's hand contains "Monster Reborn", "Makyura the Destructor", "Rope of Life", "Card of Last Will", "Pot of Greed", and "Holding Legs".

Turn 9: Yami Bakura
Yami Bakura draws. He then Tributes "The Winged Dragon of Ra" in order to Tribute Summon "Dark Ruler Ha Des" in (2450/1600) Attack Position. Yami Bakura then Removes from play Gernia, Headless Knight, and Puppet Master from his Graveyard to Special Summon "Dark Necrofear" in (2200/2800) Attack Position. Yami Bakura then activates "Premature Burial" to Pay 800 Life Points (Yami Bakura 1900 → 1100) and revive "The Earl of Demise" (2000/700) in Attack Position as well as equip it with "Premature Burial".

Turn 10: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws. He then activates "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon "The Winged Dragon of Ra" from the Graveyard (0/0) in Attack Position. He then activates the Instant Attack and Point-to-Point Transfer effects of "The Winged Dragon of Ra" to allow Ra to attack this turn, pay all but 1 of his Life Points (Yami Marik 8550 → 1) to increase its ATK and DEF by the paid amount ("The Winged Dragon of Ra": 0 → 8549/0 → 8549) as well as allow "Ra" to attack every monster Yami Bakura controls once each. "The Winged Dragon of Ra" attacks and destroys all of Yami Bakura's monsters (Yami Bakura 1100 → 0 → 0 → 0). "The Winged Dragon of Ra" then attacks directly (Yami Bakura 0 → 0).


  • In Part 1 of the Shadow Game, the Millennium Puzzle is on the left of Yugi's pillow, but in this episode, it is on the nightstand to the right of the bed.
  • In Part 1, the Millennium Rod is seen only once with Yami Marik (in the back of his pants' belt, but it disappears after that one scene), but then in this episode he somehow shows it to Yami Bakura and the regular Marik. However, the Rod is once again not seen for the rest of the duel after he shows it to them in the duel and the flashback.

Differences Between Versions

  • When Tea begins to be controlled by Marik, a yellow glow is added around her head in the English version.
  • During Ishizu's dream of Marik being consumed by the Shadows, the English version's flames of Ra are purple instead of regular ones, making Marik and his gold bands look more purple, his hair lighter, and his shirt white.
  • When Marik, in Tea's body, goes to Ishizu, the English Marik asks her for help but doesn't reveal what it is onscreen, while his Japanese version just begs her to save Odion from his darker self.
  • When Yami Marik tries again to get rid of Odion, the blade inside the Millennium Rod is once again digitized out in the English version.
  • A shot of Yami Bakura engulfed by Ra's flames is removed from the English dub. Ironically, the said scene appears much later on in the dub, but with the flames recolored purple.
