Major Events

  • The Four-way free duel continues. The first two duelists to lose will face each other in the semi-finals and so will the victors.
    • Kaiba follows his plans to duel Yugi in the semi-finals to get his "Slifer the Sky Dragon (Original). But then realises that the first two people to lose wil duel. Not able to let himself lose the duel on purpose, he decides on defeating Marik and Joey Wheeler.
    • Yugi also realizes a bit that he would also need more power to stand against Marik's Egyptian God Card. Therefore, he goes after Kaiba, as not wanting to Joey.
    • Joey is determined to duel Marik in the next round, as he had made a promise to Mai to bring her back (revealed later). So he wants to make sure that he and Marik lose this duel.
    • Marik is not too keen to duel anyone and only attacks them who are vulnerable, as he is sure that sooner or later, he will have his revenge against the Pharaoh.
  • Meanwhile, Serenity gets worried about Mai's Condition and Joey's Duel.

Duel continues from previous episode.

Turn 6: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws. He then Sets a card and Normal Summons "Lord Poison" (1500/1000) in Attack Position. Yami Marik then switches "Newdoria" (1200/800) to Attack Position. "Newdoria" then attacks "Vorse Raider". "Vorse Raider" destroys "Newdoria", but the effect of "Newdoria" then activates, destroying "Vorse Raider". Yami Marik then activates "Spell of Pain" to redirect the Battle Damage he would have taken to Joey instead (Joey 4000 → 3300).

Turn 7: Yami Yugi
Yugi draws. He then chooses not to pay the Maintenance Cost for "The Regulation of Tribe", so it is destroyed.

"Beast of Gilfer" attacks Seto directly, but Seto activates "Attack Guidance Armor" to redirect the attack to Marik's "Lord Poison". Marik activates "Mirror Force" to destroy all Attack Position monsters on Yugi's side of the field, but Yugi activates "Seven Tools of the Bandit" to negate and destroy "Mirror Force" by paying 1000 Life Points (Yugi 4000 → 3000). "Beast of Gilfer" then destroys "Lord Poison" (Marik 4000 → 3300).

Turn 8: Joey
Joey draws "Gearfried the Iron Knight" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1800/1600) in Attack Position. "Gearfried the Iron Knight" then attacks Kaiba directly (Seto 4000 → 2200). Joey Sets a card.
