"Dark Signs, Part 3", known as "Dark Synchro! Come Forth, One-Hundred Eye Dragon" in Japan is the thirty-fourth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. It first aired in Japan on November 19, 2008 and in the United States on July 4, 2009.
The Dark Signer Kalin Kessler and Yusei Fudo continue their Duel. Kalin then Summons his trump card, the Dark Synchro Monster "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon", hoping to get rid of his former friend once and for all. Also, flashbacks are shown that reveal why Kalin hates his former team.
"Infernity Archfiend" was about to attack Yusei, which frightens Jack and Crow, but Yusei activates the Trap Card, "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow", which negates the monster's attack. Kalin is disappointed. After his activation, instead of going to the Graveyard, it turns back into face-down mode again. Jack and Crow are satisfied that Yusei managed to escape the monster's attack.
Kalin sets 1 card face-down and end his turn. Kalin thinks Yusei should have been dead by now and guess he'll use any means to keep himself alive. He said to Yusei that he hadn't change a bit. Yusei tried to said something, but Kalin said it's now Yusei's turn. Yusei draws a card and Summons "Junk Synchron" with 1300 ATK. Both Duelists' SPC goes to 3. Yusei uses the effect of "Junk Synchron" to Summon back "Speed Warrior" with 400 DEF. He then uses "Junk Synchron" and "Speed Warrior" to Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior" with 2300 ATK.
Kalin said to Yusei to go all out twice. Yusei then activates the Continuous Trap Card, "Shard of Hope", in which when a monster he control inflicts Battle Damage to his opponent, he can draw a card. And if it is a Trap Card, he can activate it from his hand. Kalin tell him it depends if he can inflict Battle Damage on him. Yusei remembers the effect of Kalin's Continuous Trap Card, "Depth Amulet". But he also remembers that Kalin has 2 cards on his hand and 2 monsters on his field. Yusei thinks it's a good thing Kalin try to preserve his hand. Kalin smirked.
Yusei sends "Junk Warrior" to attack "Infernity Beast". But Kalin sends 1 card from his hand to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Depth Amulet" effect, thus the attack. Kalin laughs sinisterly. Yusei wonders if Kalin going to reduce his hand even further. Kalin thanks Yusei for the consideration. Yusei ends his turn.
It's now Kalin's turn. He draws a card and both Duelists' SPC goes to 4. He Tributes "Infernity Beast" and "Infernity Archfiend" to Summon "Dark Tuner Nightmare Hand" with 0 ATK. By seeing this, Yusei remembers his Duel with Grady, which only mean one thing : Kalin can summon a Level two or lower monster from his hand. He then Summons "Infernity Dwarf" with 800 ATK. After that, he uses "Dark Tuner Nightmare Hand" and "Infernity Dwarf" to Dark Synchro Summon. Yusei knew it was going to happen and wonders what will come out of this Dark Synchro Summon. The monster coming out of this Dark Synchro Summon revealed itself as "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" with 3000 ATK. Yusei said this monster is a negative level eight monster with an attack power of 3000. Yusei asks if this creature is his ace monster. Kalin refuses to respond.
Carly and Jack are shocked by this monster. Crow wonders what kind of creature "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" is since that monster was never in Kalin's Deck before. Kalin sends "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" to attack "Junk Warrior". Jack and Crow are concerned by it. Yusei tried to use the effect of "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow", but Kalin said that his monster's effect is activated. He said when this card is in face-up position, it gains the effect of a DARK Attribute monster in the Graveyard. The monster then copies the effect of "Infernity Beast" in the Graveyard; when the monster attacks while its controller has no cards in their hand, the opponent can't activate any Spell or Trap Cards. Yusei wonders if that was Kalin's plan all along. The effect of Yusei's Trap Card is negated. "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" destroys "Junk Warrior", which causes Yusei to lose 700 Life Points and to lose control of his Duel Runner. Kalin laughs and tells Yusei to be thrown into the flames. Yusei manages to regain control of his Duel Runner. Kalin says that is the way, but he can't drop dead just yet. He says that he will put Yusei through into so much more anguish that it'll kill him. He then ends his turn.
Now it's Yusei's turn. He draws a card and both Duelists's SPC goes to 5. He then summons "Rockstone Warrior" in Defense Mode with 1600 DEF. Kalin wonders if using a monster in Defense Mode is Yusei's back-up plan. After that, Yusei places a card face-down and ends his turn. Kalin says that Depth Amulet is destroyed after his opponent's third turn. Yusei knows that the Trap Card has already served its purpose. Kalin smirked.
Yusei knows that Kalin's strategy is nothing like him at all in the past. He then remembers one of Kalin's duels and knows it all been changed. Kalin says yes and thanks to Yusei. Yusei wonders why are they fighting. Kalin refuses to respond.
Kalin remembers back when he, Yusei, Jack and Crow were still The Enforcers. He asks if they can make themselves satisfied. The team is seen battling Duel Gangs like a first one with baseball motives, a second one with kimono on them and a third one on a stage. Kalin says that he doesn't need tricks and that he'll keep pushing on with overwhelming might and guts. Yusei, Jack and Crow were then satisfied by Kalin's confidence. They managed to take over most all of Satellite's sector until only Sector M is left. Kalin says to them that they'll dominate all of Satellite. The team agreed with him.
The group is seen walking down the streets of Satellite. A Duel Gang is spying on them. The Enforcers knows they are been watched. Kalin smirked and tell the Duel Gang to come out now. The Duel Gang seems to have 20 or more members. Crow says that it's unfair. Kalin laughs and says he doesn't see any harm. He also says any less and they'll be unsatisfied.
The Duel begins. Crow managed to handcuffed four members. Jack uses "Twin-Sword Marauder" to attack one of the members' "Goblin Attack Force", thus defeating him. Jack throws the same handcuff to another member, saying he's next. Kalin defeats one member on the stair of the building. He then attack another member.
Yusei defeated two members and battles a third one. Yusei guesses the third one is the leader of the rival Duel Gang and says they were the ones who sullied the duel and he'll make them pay their just dues. He throws a handcuff at him. The leader says a match is all about winning and winning means beating the opponent. He drove Yusei to the other building and tried to make him fall from the previous building, saying to Yusei to go to hell. He removes his Duel Disk and lets him fall to the ground. Jack and Crow are worried by it. But Yusei is saved thanks to Kalin who throws a handcuff at him.
Both Duelists' SPC goes to 6. Kalin draws a card and activates the Spell Card, "Speed Spell - Power Baton", a Speed Spell that can only activate once his Speed Counters are at six or above. By selecting one monster card from his Deck and sending it to the Graveyard, one monster on his field will increase in ATK for the Damage Step equal to that monster's ATK. And the monster he's sending to the Graveyard is "Infernity Destroyer" with 2300 ATK. By sending this card to the Graveyard, "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" gains 2300 ATK -> 5300 ATK. After that, his monster's effect activates. It gains the effect of "Infernity Dwarf" in the Graveyard. Once his hand is at 0, if its ATK is greater than a Defense Mode monster's DEF, "Infernity Dwarf" inflicts damage to the opponent equal to the difference. Kalin says here lies the power of his zero-card hand Handless Combo. Kalin sends "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" to attack "Rockstone Warrior".
Kalin says to Yusei to be ready for 3700 in piercing damage. Yusei says he doesn't think so and the effect of "Rockstone Warrior" reduce all damage caused by battle to 0. But Yusei's monster is destroyed by Kalin's monster. Kalin laughs madly and says that Yusei almost didn't make that one and what's in store next. Yusei has no more monsters to shield him on his field and he only has 2 cards in his hand. He wonders if any of the two cards that Yusei holds in his hand be the means to defeat Kalin's "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon". Kalin laughs madly and tells Yusei to doubt, suffer, and beg for his life. Yusei says that's enough and that Kalin never used to be like this.
He remembers that Kalin saved him from the fall back then. He asks him to let him go. If he doesn't, he be dragged down with him. Kalin says he will never abandon him and he is his friend. Yusei is overwhelmed by this. Kalin says this isn't the end and that the effect of "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" effect activates the effect of "Infernity Destroyer" in his Graveyard, which is when his hand is at 0, if it destroys a monster by battle, it inflicts 800 points of damage to the opponent. He sends "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" to attack directly.
Kalin and Crow save Yusei from the fall. Yusei thanks Kalin. The rival Duel Gang leader escapes, but he is stopped by Jack. They defeated the rival Duel Gang and took over their sector, thus the Enforcers were now masters of Satellite. The team was happy of their conquest and laughs happily. Kalin throws the map to the air and says that the Enforcers are the best.
"One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" attacks Yusei directly, causing him to lose 800 Life Points. He again loses control of his Duel Runner. Kalin says to him to make sure he burns this time. Crow begs Kalin to stop. Jack is also worried for Yusei. Kalin laughs more madly than ever. Yusei managed to yet again regain control of his Duel Runner. Kalin is very disappointed. Then Yusei remembers something.
Satellite on a rainy day. Sector Security agents patrol Satellite, hunting down the Enforcers. Kalin is seen covered in blood coming from one of the agents. He murdered one of the Sector Security agents. Yusei witnessed it and the two friends fight. The patrol arrives and Kalin calls him a traitor. Kalin, very angry, calls him a traitor just like in the past.
Featured Duel: Kalin Kessler vs. Yusei Fudo
Turn 3: Kalin
"Infernity Archfiend" has just attacked directly, but Yusei activates his face-down "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow" to negate the attack. After that resolves, "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow" resets itself face-down. Kalin sets a card.
Turn 4: Yusei
Yusei draws "Junk Synchron". During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World" activates (Kalin's SPC: 2 → 3; Yusei's SPC: 2 → 3). Yusei then Normal Summons "Junk Synchron" (1300/500) in Attack Position. He then activates the effect of "Junk Synchron" to revive "Speed Warrior" (900/400) in Defense Position with its effects negated. Yusei then tunes "Speed Warrior" with "Junk Synchron" in order to Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior" (2300/1300) in Attack Position.
Yusei then activates his face-down "Shard of Hope". Now when a monster Yusei controls inflicts Battle Damage, he can draw a card. If the card is a Trap, he can activate it from his hand by destroying "Shard of Hope", but if the activation requirements of that Trap are incorrect or if the drawn card is not a Trap Card, then the drawn card will be destroyed and sent to the Graveyard.
Turn 5: Kalin
Kalin draws. During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World" activates (Kalin's SPC: 3 → 4; Yusei's SPC: 3 → 4). Kalin then Tributes "Infernity Beast" and "Infernity Archfiend" in order to Tribute Summon "Dark Tuner Nightmare Hand" (0/0) in Attack Position. He then activates the effect of "Nightmare Hand" to Special Summon "Infernity Dwarf" (800/500) from his hand in Attack Position.
Kalin then Dark Tunes "Infernity Dwarf" with "Dark Tuner Nightmare Hand" in order to Dark Synchro Summon "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" (3000/2500) in Attack Position. Due to the first effect of "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon", it gains the effects of all DARK monsters in Kalin's Graveyard.
"One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" attacks "Junk Warrior". Yusei attempts to activate his face-down "Scrap-Iron Scarecrow" in response, but due to the effect of "Infernity Beast", Yusei cannot activate Spells or Traps until the end of the Damage Step. "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" then destroys "Junk Warrior" (Yusei 3300 → 2600).
Turn 6: Yusei
Yusei draws "Synchro Destructor". During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World" activates (Kalin's SPC: 4 → 5; Yusei's SPC: 4 → 5). Yusei's hand is shown to contain "Hyper Synchron", "Rockstone Warrior" and "Speed Spell - Final Attack". Yusei Normal Summons "Rockstone Warrior" (1800/1600) in Defense Position and sets a card. On Yusei's End Phase, "Depth Amulet" is destroyed due to its last effect.
Turn 7: Kalin
Kalin draws "Speed Spell - Power Baton". During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World" activates (Kalin's SPC: 5 → 6; Yusei's SPC: 5 → 6). Kalin then activates "Speed Spell - Power Baton" to send "Infernity Destroyer" from his Deck to the Graveyard and increase the ATK of "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" by the ATK of "Infernity Destroyer" ("One Hundred-Eyed Dragon": 3000 → 5300/2500) until the end of the next Damage Step. Also, Kalin will be forbidden from conducting his next Draw Phase.
"One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" then attacks and destroys "Rockstone Warrior". Although, "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" would inflict piercing damage at this point due to the effect of "Infernity Dwarf", Yusei takes no Battle Damage due to the first effect of "Rockstone Warrior". Kalin then activates the effect of "Infernity Destroyer" to inflict 800 damage to Yusei as "One Hundred-Eyed Dragon" destroyed a monster by battle and sent it to the Graveyard (Yusei 2600 → 1800)[Notes 1]
