Noah speaks with The Big Five. Nezbitt is ready to leave the Virtual World in Tristan's body, but the rest are in danger of dismissal for their failures. They beg Noah for one more chance.
Noah gives them their opportunity, and as their final chance for escape, the Big Five challenge Yugi, each taking turns speaking through Tristan's body.
If Yugi wins, they will give back Tristan's body. If the Big Five wins, they gain the bodies of Yugi and all his friends.
Joey declares five against one to be an uneven match-up, so he demands to also be in this Duel.
The Big Five speak privately with one another, initially inclined to reject this addition to the deal. However, Johnson believes that Joey will merely be a burden to Yugi. When Leichter points out that Joey beat Johnson, the latter persists and decides to use Joey's presence to give them an advantage.
Speaking to Yugi and Joey, Johnson accepts this on the condition that the Big Five begin the Duel with 8000 Life Points, while Yugi and Joey begin with 4000 each.
Kaiba broke away from the group before the challenge so he could search for Noah and Mokuba. He is surprised to discover an exact virtual copy of Kaiba Land when he hasn't even shared the plans with anyone yet.
Featured Duel: Yami Yugi + Joey Wheeler vs. The Big Five, Part 1Edit
Turn 1: The Big Five (Gansley) Gansleyactivates "A Legendary Ocean". As long as this card is on the field, all WATER monsters on the field and in both players' hands have their levels reduced by one and in addition all WATER monsters gain 200 ATK and DEF. Then, he Normal Summons "The Legendary Fisherman" in Attack Position (1850/1600) without a Tribute due to "A Legendary Ocean's" effect decreases its Level by 1. As the name of "A Legendary Ocean" is treated as "Umi", "The Legendary Fisherman" cannot be attacked and is unaffected by Spell Cards (because of this it does not get the increase from "A Legendary Ocean").
Turn 4: The Big Five (Crump)
Because of "Nightmare Penguin" the ATK of "The Legendary Fisherman" rises (2050 → 2250). "The Legendary Fisherman" attacks and destroys "Gazelle". Then, Crump Normal Summons "Catapult Turtle" in Defense Position (1000 → 1400/2000 → 2200).
Turn 5: Joey
Joey Sets a card. Then, he Normal Summons "Cyber Harpie Lady" in Attack Position (1800/1300).
Then, he switches "Alligator's Sword" to Attack Position.
Turn 6: Yami
Yami Normal Summons "Mystical Elf" in Defense Position (800/2000).
Turn 7: The Big Five (Crump)
"The Legendary Fisherman" attacks "Mystical Elf". Joey activates "Kunai with Chain", switching "The Legendary Fisherman" to Defense Position and adding 500 ATK to "Cyber Harpie Lady" ("Cyber Harpie Lady": 1800 → 2300). Crump Sets a monster.
Turn 9: Yami
Yami Normal Summons "Kuriboh" in Defense Position (300/200). Then, he activates "Card Destruction". Each player discards their hand and draws the same amount of cards they discarded. Crump is thus forced to discard "A Legendary Ocean" along with his other cards.
Cut from the English version is a shot of Robot Monkey Honda, moved to tears by Jounouchi's insistence on fighting for him.
Another sequence with Robot Monkey Honda and the gang is cut from the English version. First, Honda tearfully urges Yugi and Jounouchi on. Anzu tells him not to worry, and Otogi says he'll soon have his body back. He thanks them, and Shizuka, who encourages her brother. Honda melts rather goopily in her arms.
