Major Events

  • This is a Shadow Game played between Yami Yugi and Yami Marik. As each player's Life Points decrease, their respective hosts (Yugi Muto and Marik Ishtar) will have more and more of their body wiped out.
  • When a player loses, both spirit and host will be sent to the Shadow Realm. However, in the comics, Yami Marik would not be sent to the Shadow Realm along with his "host's" spirit if he lost, since he was an alter ego that Marik created himself, whereas Yami Yugi is a completely different spirit living dependably inside Yugi's body with Yugi's own spirit.
  • Before the match begins, Kaiba gives Yugi a card which will help him win the duel, "Fiend's Sanctuary".

Featured Duel: Yami Marik vs. Yami Yugi - Part 1

Turn 1: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws "Vampiric Leech" and subsequently Normal Summons it (500/1200) in Attack Position. "Vampiric Leech" then attacks Yugi directly via its own effect (Yugi 4000 → 3500). Yami Marik then Activates "Vampiric Leech's second effect, discarding "The Winged Dragon of Ra" to switch "Vampiric Leech" to Defense Position. Yami Marik's hand is shown to contain "Dark Spell Regeneration", "Juragedo", "Zombie's Jewel", and "Vengeful Bog Spirit". Yami Marik Sets a card.

Turn 2: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws "Exchange". He then Normal Summons "Queen's Knight" (1500/1600) in Attack Position. "Queen's Knight" attacks & destroys "Vampiric Leech". Yami Yugi Sets 2 cards.

Turn 3: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws. He then Normal Summons "Juragedo" (1700/1300) in Attack Position. "Juragedo" attacks & destroys "Queen's Knight" (Yugi 3500 → 3300). Yami Marik then Sets 2 cards.

Turn 4: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. Yami Marik then activates "Left Arm Offering" to discard his entire hand and add "Monster Reborn" from his Deck to his hand. Yami Yugi then activates "Exchange", which forces both players to take one card from their opponent's hand; Yami Yugi takes "Monster Reborn" from Marik's hand while Yami Marik takes "De-Fusion" from Yami Yugi's hand. (Other cards that were shown in Yugi's hand at this point include "King's Knight", "Kuriboh", and "Ragnarok"). Yami Yugi then Activates "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon "Queen's Knight" (1500/1600) from his Graveyard in Attack Position. Yami Yugi then Normal Summons "King's Knight" (1600/1400) in Attack Position. Since "Queen's Knight was on the field when "King's Knight" was summoned, the effect of "King's Knight" activates, allowing Yami Yugi to Special Summon "Jack's Knight" (1900/1000) in Attack Position.

Turn 5: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws. He then Sets a card (Yugi's "De-Fusion"). Yami Marik then activates "Card of Sanctity" to make him and Yugi draw until they both have 6 cards in their hand. Yami Marik then switches "Juragedo" to Defense Position.

Turn 6: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws "Slifer the Sky Dragon". Aside from "Slifer", Yami Yugi's hand contains "Ragnarok", "Kuriboh", "Dark Magician Girl", "Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts", "Magical Dimension", and "Dark Magician". Yami Yugi then Tributes "Queen's Knight", "King's Knight" and "Jack's Knight" to Summon "Slifer the Sky Dragon" (X000/X000) in Attack Position. Since Yugi has 6 cards in his hand, Slifer's ATK/DEF becomes 6000 ("Slifer the Sky Dragon": 0 → 6000/0 → 6000). "Slifer" attacks "Juragedo", but Marik activates "Dark Spell Regeneration" to activate "Monster Reborn" straight from Yugi's Graveyard as his card, allowing Marik to Special Summon "The Winged Dragon of Ra" from his Graveyard (?/?) in Attack Position. Yami Marik then transforms "The Winged Dragon of Ra" into Egyptian God Phoenix (0/0).

Duel continues next episode.
