Summary

(NOTE: for steps in the Yami Yugi and Yugi Muto Duel please see the Featured Duel section below)

Yugi's Final Attack

Mokuba Kaiba: "No way! He just defeated Slifer for the second time!"
Joey Wheeler: "Of all the cards to put in that box, how did Yugi know which one to pick?"
Tristan Taylor: "What do you expect? He's the 'King of Games' dude!"
Téa Gardner: "He must have had this plan from the beginning! I guess after spending so much time with the Pharaoh, Yugi knew exactly what he would play"
Yami Yugi: (thinking) "This was the greatest Duel of my life, it's been an honor Yugi." (to Yugi) "Go on, your move."
Duke Devlin: "I don't get it, what's Yugi waiting for? All he has to do is attack and the Duel's over"
Ryo Bakura: "That's just it. Once the match comes to an end the Pharaoh will be released. And we'll never see him again!"
Yami Yugi: (thinking) "It's all right Yugi... proceed."
  • Duel resumes.

Farewell Pharaoh Atem

  • In his final move of the Duel, Yugi uses "Silent Magician" to attack Atem directly and wins. Yugi falls to his knees in tears.
Final-Duel Yugi-crying-Yami-consoling

Yugi (right) bursts into tears after his victory. Yami consoles him

.
Yami Yugi: "Congratulations! Well done. (...) Yugi, a champion doesn't belong on his knees. You achieved a great victory for us both."
Yugi Muto: "I was focusing so hard on playing the game that I forgot what winning this Duel would actually mean. By defeating you I've sent you away... for good."
Yami Yugi: "No, you have opened the door for me! Thanks to you my spirit can finally be at rest once again: I'll be back where I belong. Fate brought the two of us together for a reason, and we fulfilled our destiny. We've protected mankind from the return of the Shadow Games and we've both grown tremendously along the way."
Yugi Muto: "I'm gonna miss you!"
Yami Yugi: "You do realize we'll never truly be apart right?"
Yugi Muto: "Huh?!"
Yami Yugi: "The gift of kindness you've given me and the courage I've given you will remain with us, and that will forever bind us together."

The Eye of Wdjat starts shining.

Tristan Taylor: "Hey look!"
Joey Wheeler: "What's up with the Eye?"
Ishizu Ishtar: "Now that the battle ritual is complete, the Eye of Wdjat that guards the door to the Spirit World has awakened, and the Spirit of the Great Pharaoh which was trapped within the Millennium Puzzle for 5,000 years is now free. (...) The time has arrived: tell the Eye of Wdjat your name."
Yami Yugi: "I am the son of King Aknamkanon, my name is ATEM"

The Eye of Wdjat opens and reveals a door. Yami starts walking towards it.

Everyone: "Pharaoh!"
Téa Gardner: "Don't go!'"
Tristan Taylor: "So that's how it ends huh? Nice! You think you can just go up and change everybody's life and then just leave?"

Everyone starts crying.

Pharaoh-Entering-Spirit-World

Pharaoh Atem's spirit enters the Spirit World and is finally laid to rest, rejoining the friends from his past

Yugi Muto: "What Tristan means is: we don't wanna say goodbye."
Téa Gardner: "Exactly. Pharaoh, I know walking through that door means your spirit will finally be free and it's all for the best, but it doesn't seem fair. I mean, I feel like we're all just getting to know you. In fact you were just beginning to get to know yourself, and now you're being taken away from us! I know we should be happy for you, but it's really hard to do that when you're losing your best friend and you just don't understand why it has to be that way.'"
Joey Wheeler: "I guess there are some things we're not SUPPOSE to understand. Just look at me: I go through half my life not understanding what's going on. But I know that true friends may be hard to leave, but they're impossible to forget. And even though his stay wasn't as long as we would have liked, we're lucky we knew him at all."
Yami Yugi: (thinking) "Thank you Joey."
Téa Gardner: (thinking) "Goobye Atem... and good luck.'"
Joey Wheeler: "Hey Pharaoh, I hate to break the terrible news to ya but you're not going anywhere, 'cause everything you've given us stays right here in our hearts!"
Yami Yugi: "Right!"
Yugi Muto: "Like we always say: 'IT'S YOUR MOVE'."
Téa Gardner: "He's gone.'"
Yugi Muto: "Well Pharaoh... goodbye."
  • Suddenly the ground and walls start to crumble. The Millennium Stone disintegrates and the Millennium Items fall down a chasm in the ground. As the group runs to safer ground towards the exit, the spirit of Shadi watches them leave as the walls continue to crumble.

A New Adventure?

Ishizu Ishtar: "Now that the Pharaoh has returned to the next world, the Millennium Items have been permanently sealed and our duty as the Pharaoh's tombkeepers is finally complete."
Tristan Taylor: "So this is the end? Feels weird..."
Joey Wheeler: "Yeah."
Seto Kaiba: "What were you geeks expecting?"
Joey Wheeler: "Fireworks... sappy music... something! At least make one of your little wrap-up speeches Yug!"
Yugi Muto: "Well, sometimes the end of ONE adventure is just the beginning of another."
Joey Wheeler: "Ah... much better!"

Featured Duel: Pharaoh Atem vs. Yugi Muto - Part 4

Duel continues from previous episode.

Turn 20: Yugi Muto
Yugi draws. He then Sets a monster and switches "Curse of Dragon" (2000/1500) to Defense Position.

Turn 21: Pharaoh Atem
Atem draws "Thousand Knives" and subsequently activates it to destroy Yugi's face-down "Marshmallon". Because "Marshmallon" was flipped face-up due to an effect, its effect doesn't activate. "Dark Magician" attacks & destroys Yugi's "Curse of Dragon".

Turn 22: Yugi Muto
Yugi draws. He then Normal Summons "Blockman" (1000/1500) in Defense Position and Sets a card.

Turn 23: Pharaoh Atem
Atem draws "Dark Spear" and subsequently activates it, equipping it to his "Dark Magician" and granting "Dark Magician" the ability to inflict Piercing damage. "Dark Magician" attacks Yugi's "Blockman", but Yugi activates "Soul Shield" to pay half his Life Points (Yugi Muto 800 → 400) and prevent his monster from being destroyed as well as negate all Battle Damage he would take from the attack. Because of that, the attack fails.

Turn 24: Yugi Muto
Yugi draws. He then activates "Gold Sarcophagus" to select 1 card from his Deck and remove it from play face-down. If Atem later activates a card of the same name, Yugi can negate the effect of Atem's card by revealing the card that he removed via "Gold Sarcophagus". Yugi then Activates "Blockman's" effect, Tributing it to Special Summon a number of "Block Tokens" equal to the number of turns that "Blockman" has been face-up on his side of the field. Since it has been two turns, Yugi Special Summons two "Block Tokens" (1000/1500) in Defense Position. Yugi then Tributes his two "Block Tokens" to Summon "Gandora the Dragon of Destruction" (0/0) in Attack Position. He then activates the effect of "Gandora", paying half his Life Points (Yugi Muto 400 → 200) to remove all monsters on the field from play, but Atem activates "Dark Illusion" to protect his "Dark Magician" from the effect of "Gandora" and allow Yugi to draw one card. After the effect of "Gandora" resolves, it is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard. Yugi sets two cards.

Turn 25: Pharaoh Atem
Atem draws. "Dark Magician" attacks Yugi directly, but Yugi activates "Magician's Circle" to allow both players to Special Summon a Spellcaster-Type monster that has at most 2000 ATK" from their Decks in Attack Position. Yugi Special Summons "Silent Magician LV0" (1000/1000) in Attack Position while Atem Special Summons "Dark Magician Girl" (2000/1700) in Attack Position. A replay occurs, and Atem uses "Dark Magician" to attack Yugi's "Silent Magician LV0", but Yugi activates "Spell Textbook" to discard his entire hand and draw a card. If it's a Spell Card, Yugi can activate its effect immediately. Yugi has no cards at this point, so he just draws 1 card. Yugi draws "Card of Sanctity" and immediately activates it due to "Spell Textbook's" effect, forcing both players to draw until they have 6 cards in their hand. The effect of Yugi's "Silent Magician LV0" then activates, which increases its LV by one and its ATK by 500 for each card Atem draws. Since Atem just drew 5 cards, "Silent Magician LV0" becomes LV5 and it gains 2500 ATK ("Silent Magician LV0" → "Silent Magician LV5": 1000 → 3500/1000). Atem then activates "Magicians Unite" to make the ATK of "Dark Magician" become 3000 for this turn only ("Dark Magician": 2800 → 3000/2400). The attack continues and destroys "Dark Magician" (Yami Yugi 700 → 200). Due to the last effect of "Magicians Unite", "Dark Magician Girl" is destroyed.

Atem then activates "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon "Slifer the Sky Dragon" from his Graveyard (X000/X000) in Attack Position. Since Atem has four cards in his hand, the ATK and DEF of "Slifer" both become 4000 ("Slifer the Sky Dragon": X000 → 4000/X000 → 4000). Atem intends to attack Yugi's "Silent Magician LV5" with "Slifer the Sky Dragon" right now in order to win the Duel. The effect of Yugi's "Gold Sarcophagus" then activates, revealing the face-down card Yugi selected to Atem. The card is revealed to be "Monster Reborn". Because Atem activated the same card Yugi removed via "Gold Sarcophagus", Atem's "Monster Reborn" is negated; "Slifer the Sky Dragon" goes back to the Graveyard.

Turn 26: Yugi Muto
Yugi draws. "Silent Magician" attacks Atem directly (Pharaoh Atem 200 → 0).

Yugi wins.
