- Robot-monkey Tristan accidentally flicks a switch on the back of his head which allows him to speak normally. Joey and Duke don't trust him and believe he may have been sent by The Big Five.
- Leichter accuses Kaiba of betraying The Big Five and his brother and stepfather. He reveals how Kaiba gained leadership of KaibaCorp.
- When Seto passed his test set by Gozaburo, he and Mokuba won membership in KaibaCorp, including 2% each of KaibaCorp's stock.
- Seto went on to recruit all of the Big Five in an attempt to buy up 51% of KaibaCorp's stock, which would allow him to replace Gozaburo as owner of the company. However, Gozaburo learned of the plot and began buying up shares also.
- Kaiba accused Mokuba of telling Gozaburo of the plan and brought his brother in front of the Big Five, denouncing him for betraying them. Listening to Leichter's story with Noah in the present, Mokuba remembers that day as the worst day of his life.
- Mokuba then went to Gozaburo, confused and distraught. Gozaburo gave him support, knowing that having Mokuba on his side meant 2% more of the stock for him. As he and Seto each owned 49% of the company, this brought him to the desired 51%.
- After this scandal, Seto and the Big Five called a meeting with Gozaburo, claiming to hold all the shares they needed to vote him out of office. Gozaburo, knowing they only held 49%, prepared to have them all fired for their betrayal until Mokuba appeared and announced his support for his brother. This swayed the 51% majority to Seto, completely devastating Gozaburo.
- Back in the present, Leichter accuses Kaiba of being callous, using his own brother as a pawn in the knowledge that Mokuba would always stand by him, no matter how poorly Seto treated him. By letting Gozaburo think he he had won over Mokuba with his support, Gozaburo became so confident that he stopped buying shares. Kaiba is unfazed by these revelations, as he had made his choices to make a better life for him and Mokuba.
- Kaiba goes on to attack Leichter's combo, but Leichter continues to block him out. Still, Kaiba musters all his cards together, breaking apart Leichter's strategy and then summoning his ace monster to deal the final damage to Leichter and win the duel.
- Mokuba, having watched the Duel and listened to Leichter's accusations, is glad that his brother won, to Noah's shock. Noah had hoped that the new insight into Mokuba's past would create bitter feelings toward Seto. Even though it was a painful time for the two of them, Mokuba stands by Seto's decisions in taking over KaibaCorp.

Turn 9: Leichter
"Injection Fairy Lily" attacks "Twin-Headed Behemoth". Leichter activates the effect of "Injection Fairy Lily" to pay 2000 Life Points (Leichter 3600 → 1600) and increase the ATK of "Injection Fairy Lily" by 3000 ("Injection Fairy Lily" ("Injection Fairy Lily": 400 → 3400/1500) during damage calculation only. "Injection Fairy Lily" destroys "Twin-Headed Behemoth". After damage calculation, the effect of "Injection Fairy Lily" expires ("Injection Fairy Lily": 3400 → 400/1500). "Twin-Headed Behemoth's" effect activates, allowing Kaiba to Special Summon "Twin-Headed Behemoth" from his Graveyard in Defense Position with only 1000 ATK and DEF ("Twin-Headed Behemoth": 1000/1000).
Leichter then Sets a card ("Spring of Rebirth"). He then activates "Emergency Provisions" to send his set Card to the Graveyard and gain 1000 Life Points (Leichter 1600 → 2600). On Leichter's End Phase, "Satellite Cannon" gains 1000 ATK ("Satellite Cannon": 0 → 1000/0) due to its third effect.
Turn 10: Kaiba
Kaiba draws "Heavy Storm" and subsequently activates it to destroy every Magic and Trap Card on the field, but Leichter activates his face-down "Imperial Order", which negates the effect of all Magic Cards while it is face-up. During each of Leichter's Standby Phases, he must either pay 700 Life Points or destroy "Imperial Order".
Turn 11: Leichter
Leichter draws (Leichter 2600 → 3100). On Leichter's Standby Phase, the effect of "Life Absorbing Machine" activates (Leichter 3100 → 4100). Leichter then pays 700 Life Points to keep "Imperial Order" in play (Leichter 4100 → 3400). "Satellite Cannon" attacks and destroys Kaiba's face-down monster. It's revealed to be "The Wicked Worm Beast" (1400/700). After damage calculation, the ATK of "Satellite Cannon" is decreased to 0 ("Satellite Cannon": 1000 → 0/0) due to its fourth effect. On Leichter's End Phase, the third effect of "Satellite Cannon" activates ("Satellite Cannon": 0 → 1000/0).
Turn 12: Kaiba
Seto draws "Spirit Ryu". He then switches "Twin-Headed Behemoth" to Attack Position. Next he Normal Summons "Spirit Ryu" (1000/1000) in Attack Position. "Spirit Ryu" then attacks "Injection Fairy Lily", but Leichter activates "Injection Fairy Lily's" effect to pay 2000 Life Points (Leichter 3400 → 1400) and increase his "Injection Fairy Lily's" ATK by 3000 ("Injection Fairy Lily": 400 → 3400/1500) during damage calculation only.
Kaiba activates "Spirit Ryu's" effect, discarding two Dragons ("Hyozanryu" and "Cave Dragon") from his hand in order to increase "Spirit Ryu's" ATK by 1000 for each Dragon discarded ("Spirit Ryu": 1000 → 3000/1000). "Injection Fairy Lily" destroys "Spirit Ryu" (Kaiba 1200 → 800). After damage calculation, the effect of "Injection Fairy Lily" expires ("Injection Fairy Lily 3400 → 400/1500). "Twin-Headed Behemoth" attacks and destroys "Injection Fairy Lily" (Leichter 1400 → 800).
Turn 13: Leichter
Leichter draws (Leichter 800 → 1300). On Leichter's Standby Phase, the effect of "Life Absorbing Machine" activates (Leichter 1300 → 1650). Leichter chooses not to pay the cost of "Imperial Order", so it's destroyed. He then Sets a monster. "Satellite Cannon" attacks "Twin-Headed Behemoth". Since "Satellite Cannon" can't be destroyed in battle by monsters who are Level 7 or below, only "Twin-Headed Behemoth" is destroyed. After damage calculation, the ATK of "Satellite Cannon" is decreased to 0 ("Satellite Cannon": 1000 → 0/0) due to its fourth effect. On Leichter's End Phase, the third effect of "Satellite Cannon" activates ("Satellite Cannon": 0 → 1000/0).
Turn 14: Kaiba
Kaiba draws "Possessed Dark Soul". He then activates "Pot of Greed" to draw two cards. Kaiba then Normal Summons "Possessed Dark Soul" (1200/800) in Attack Position. "Possessed Dark Soul" attacks Leichter's face-down monster. Leichter reveals his face-down monster to be "Dreamsprite" (300/200), whose effect allows Leichter to redirect the attack to "Satellite Cannon". As "Possessed Dark Soul" is not a Level 8 or above monster, "Satellite Cannon" is not destroyed and Leichter takes no Battle Damage.
Turn 15: Leichter
Leichter draws (Leichter 1650 → 2150). On Leichter's End Phase, the third effect of "Satellite Cannon" activates ("Satellite Cannon": 1000 → 2000/0).
Turn 16: Kaiba
Kaiba draws "Blue-Eyes White Dragon". He then Sets a monster. Next Kaiba activates his Deck Master's ability to pay 500 Life Points (Seto 800 → 300) and allow himself to Normal Summon another monster this turn. Kaiba then Tributes both of his monsters in order to Tribute Summon "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" (3000/2500) in Attack Position. "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" attacks and destroys "Satellite Cannon", whose ATK is treated as 0 during the opponent's turn (Leichter 2150 → 0).
Differences In Adaptations
- In the dub, Kaiba wonders how he can stop a weapon ("Satellite Cannon") that is so far out into space. In the Japanese version, only a level 7 or above monster can destroy "Satellite Cannon."
- Cut from the dub is a short bit where Shizuka feels sorry for the robot monkey, and Honda reaches out for her, but Otogi grabs him and tells him to stop.
- Right before finishing off Leichter in the dub, Kaiba proudly and arrogantly stated that Leichter should have thought twice before challenging him. In the original, Kaiba was more modest, as he stated his dreams of creating games would not lose to a weapon.
- In the English dub, during his confrontational meeting with Seto, Gozaburo fired the Big Five and prepared to send Seto back to the orphanage. In the original, he planned to transfer all their assets to a subsidiary of KaibaCorp and declare bankruptcy to make Kaiba's stocks worthless. This, ironically, seemed a less drastic punishment than the dub, something that rarely happens between adaptations.
- In the dub, the edits and placement of the "Injection Fairy Lily" card is inconsistent throughout the episode. Some shots show the artwork edited to show a rocket rather than a needle, some shots show the "Solemn Wishes" Trap Card in its place, and at least one shot has the needle on it blurred out.
- Leichter's "Dreamsprite" is given a dress to wear in the dub.
