"In the Name of the Pharaoh", known as "In the Name of the Pharaoh!!" in the Japanese version, is the two hundred and nineteenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. It first aired in Japan on August 25, 2004 and in the US in May 6, 2006.
Yugi & Friends to the Rescue!
It seems as if Zorc has finally triumphed: all of the Pharaoh's Priests are gone, his troops have deserted him, and the city is in ruins.
Pharaoh: "The Light of hope... That's right! I can't give up now! For those who believed in me... For the sake of the companions who fought alongside me...!"
Zorc Necrophades: "Fool. You have not noticed it as of yet? The thing which spreads and gives me unending power is the humans themselves!"
Zorc Necrophades: "To recognize his own existence within the light... we have had to look at the Dark we project: our own shadows! By losing to the Dark, humans throw away their own existences! They keep on repeating their destruction forever! That is their instinct, something which has lead them since ancient times!"
Mahad/"Dark Magician" and "Dark Magician Girl" synchronize for a simultaneous Magic Wave on Zorc, but it doesn't even graze him. He counter-attacks immediately and the two Spellcaster Monsters just narrowly dodge it.
Yugi & his friends want to tell the Pharaoh his name, but there's a problem: it was written in ancient hieroglyphics so they could not interpret its meaning. Meanwhile Zorc continues to attack, having realized what's going on.
The Creator God of Light, Horakhty: "At that time, thou chose to seal thy own self along with Zorc. But, when Zorc has been revived, thou were... You have some friends to protect thee and some companions to support thy. That was the only manner in which you gathered the power to defeat Zorc. The strength of just one is not enough. When the power of everyone is gathered, all becomes possible."
Horakhty vanishes into the air.
Pharaoh Atem(thinking): "Atem... That's a weird sensation... Until now, I'd shared the name 'Yuugi' along with aibou... But now it's different."
Yugi Muto(thinking): "That's the proof that I'm no one else but me and that you're a whole person. Even if I feel a bit lonely, I'm glad of you."
The Pharaoh's Departure: Priest King Seto!
The rebuilding of the Egyptian capital can finally begin. The Pharaoh and Priest Seto (resurrected from his stone-like status) look on the repairs from the Royal Palace's balcony.
Pharaoh Atem: "The Dark has disappeared. But... The price to pay for it has been too high... And some irreplaceable lives have been lost... All that remains now for the living ones is to carry on that light and move into the future... Seto."
With that, Pharaoh Atem's body becomes translucent. He, Yugi and their friends "fly up" towards the inverted pyramid in the sky, to return to the "real world". Mana waves "sayounara" to them with tears on her eyes and keeps on calling Atem "prince". Seto looks at the skies and reflects upon the duty which has been given to him: an image of the "White Dragon" accompanies him.
