Yusei Fudo continues his Duel with the man with the spider mark. His opponent reveals himself to be a Dark Signer. The reporter Carly Carmine tries to get a scoop as she watches the Duel. Meanwhile the other Dark Signers influence people to stand with them in their fight against the Crimson Dragon.
Dark Signers meetingEdit
The Duel fieldEdit
Carly Carmine arrives on the scene of Yusei and the Dark Signer's Duel. After catching her breath, she is puzzled by the purple wall of light around the Duel, but assumes it could be the Solid Vision. She spots Yusei, grabs her camera and begins to think up headlines. She sees the glow on Yusei's arm, but also notices his opponent has one too.
After Yusei is thrown back by an attack from "Frozen Fitzgerald", she begins to doubt that the Solid Vision that is causing the strange behavior.
Yusei asks his opponent if he's a Signer. As this goes unanswered, Yusei vows to fight him with the belief in his cards, regardless of who this guy is.
As Yusei faces difficulty with the effect of "Frozen Fitzgerald", his opponent reveals himself to be a Dark Signer as he states that together with is dark mark, a Dark Signer can come back as many times as he wishes. He claims that before long, Yusei's Mark of the Dragon will be dyed pitch black.
Not tolerating his opponent, Yusei explains that when he duels, neither the bonds with his friends or the hope of victory vanish from the field, until the end of the end, after asked about the effect of "Sonic Chick". With that in mind, the Dark Signer attempts to simply take out his Life Points instead. He uses "Drain Strike" to allow "Fitzgerald" to get at Yusei's Life Points, while unable to destroy "Sonic Chick".
With Yusei so far behind in Life Points, Carly foresees a great scoop. The Dark Signer sees Yusei's low Life Points as an indication of the fate he depends on and informs him that Satellite is nearing its hour of destruction, but believes Yusei will be unable to witness it.
Enraged, Yusei quickly fills up his field with four monsters and uses them to Synchro Summon "Nitro Warrior". He equips it with "Junk Barrage". Using "Frozen Fitzgerald's" effect to his advantage, Yusei attacks it twice with "Nitro Warrior". The Battle Damage combined with the Effect Damage from "Junk Barrage" takes out all of his opponent's Life Points.
After the DuelEdit
Carly is impressed with how the new King duels, but is more so pleased that she managed to get an exclusive scoop on this action.
Yusei rushes over to his opponent demanding answers. But the boy has no recollection of what just happened. Yusei notices his dark mark has vanished. Carly rushes over, recognizing Yusei's opponent as Grady, now that his hood has been tossed off.
After Carly is introduced to Yusei she takes out her microphone to interview him. A glowing spider flees from Grady's body and his Deck begins to glow for a second. Yusei and Carly turn to him. Carly tries to ask him a few questions, but Yusei looks at Grady's Deck. He notices both the Dark Synchro and Dark Tuner monsters have disappeared.
Carly tries forcing some memory out of Grady. After telling him to follow that "mental thread", the word "thread" reminds him of seeing thread shortly before he blacked out. Although unaware to him, that thread was a line of web that let the spider into him, back when he was listening to the Dark Signers preaching.
The three of them hear Sector Security approach. Yusei gets up and flees, leaving the other two. Carly tries to follow him, but Grady catches her by the ankle causing to her fall forward. He asks her not to leave him. Carly's camera slides away from her over to the Securities. One of them picks it up and points to a car that was tossed onto another as a result of the Duel and asks if they're responsible. Carly frantically shakes her head and immediately puts her hands up. Grady's arms follow suit.
Other reactions to the DuelEdit
A spider dark mark missing two legs is shown. One of the legs reappears. The owner pulls his glove over the mark on his arm. They deduce that one of their target Signers got away. However, they're not too worried as they anticipate the Signers will soon be caught in their web.
A spider hangs from a piece of web over Jack's hospital bed.
Yusei returns to the hideout and reports what happened to Tanner.
Rex Goodwin watches Yusei and Grady's Duel on a monitor. He dismisses it as he is contacted by another man on a screen behind him. Goodwin was aware the Dark Signers would appear. The other man asks Goodwin if he'll be okay.
In Satellite, two figures in Dark Signer regalia start preaching about hope for Satellite. They say that the Crimson Dragon that appeared in New Domino City is a wicked god who will bring disaster to this world; Those gathered round them will be saved from this. The threads from a large web above them drop onto these people too. The people begin to chant against the Crimson Dragon.
Rally and Nervin appear carrying shopping bags. Rally tells the group to quit this. Nervin tries to calm him down, but Rally continues and tells them that Yusei is now King; A Duel King has been born out of Satellite; The Crimson Dragon appeared during Yusei's Duel and he's sure it brings good luck. Nervin covers Rally's mouth. The crowd menacingly approach Rally and Nervin. Nervin tells Rally that they shouldn't get involved like this. Rally argues that it's the truth and tells the crowd to check for themselves. Blister watches them in secret as they do this.
Back at their base, Rally looks up an article about Yusei, but is angered because it refers at him as "the alleged King", and implies that he cheated during the duel. Blitz, Tank and Nervin aren't impressed either, knowing that the inhabitants of Neo Domino City never give anyone born in Satellite a chance. Blister enters their joint, telling them that he's been looking for them.
Carly is enraged that Angela didn't get one comment from Yusei, but she's wrote a "half-baked" article. A man opens a door and calls in to Carly to keep quiet until her turn to be questioned.
Carly draws another card, "Fortune Fairy Chee", from her Fortune Telling Deck, which says her fortune for today is "super pinch", but she might gain an edge over her competition, so cheer up. Angrily she asks how she's supposed to cheer up in here of all places. The man opens the door and yells at Carly to keep quiet again.
At Blister's hideout, Yusei still hasn't heard from Blister about his friends since they were aid to be released. Worried about what he's heard about Satellite, Yusei plans to go back. Leo and Luna advise against this as it's too dangerous and Yusei had said Signers should stick together. Yusei walks over to them and says that Signers are always bound to meet again.
A number of Securities appear outside the building, lead by Trudge. Trudge calls Yusei a Satellite scumbag and says that the city is no safe refuge for him. Himuro/Tanner calls this bad timing, but Yusei sees it as quite the opposite. He walks out to Trudge and says he needs to speak with Rex Goodwin anyway.
Featured Duel: Grady vs. Yusei FudoEdit
Turn 3: Grady
Grady has just managed to Dark Synchro Summon "Frozen Fitzgerald". He then activates "Dark Tuner Catastrogue's" effect, destroying "Junk Warrior". Grady enters his Battle Phase and attacks Yusei directly with "Frozen Fitzgerald". Yusei tries to activate "Descending Lost Star", but "Frozen Fitzgerald's" effect prevents its opponent from activating any face-down Spell or Trap Cards until the end of the Damage Step. Because of that, the attack continues (Yusei 3700 → 1200 Life Points). Grady ends his turn.
Turn 4: Yusei
Yusei draws "Turret Warrior". He then activates his face-down card, "Descending Lost Star" to Special Summon "Junk Warrior" in Defense Position with its effects negated, its Level reduced by 1, and its DEF reduced to 0(2300/1300 → 0; Level 5 → 4). Yusei then Tributes "Junk Warrior" to Special Summon "Turret Warrior" in Attack Position (1200/2000). Since Yusei Special Summoned "Turret Warrior" by Tributing a Warrior-type monster, its effect increases its ATK by the ATK of "Junk Warrior" ("Turret Warrior": 1200 → 3500/2000). Yusei attacks and destroys "Frozen Fitzgerald" with "Turret Warrior" (Grady 4000 → 3000 Life Points). Grady Special Summons "Frozen Fitzgerald" in Defense Position (2500/2500) via its own effect. At the end of the Battle Phase, the effect of "Frozen Fitzgerald" destroys "Turret Warrior" since it attacked "Frozen Fitzgerald". Yusei activates "One for One" from his hand, sending "Quillbolt Hedgehog" from his hand to the Graveyard to Special Summon "Sonic Chick" from his hand in Defense Position (300/300). Yusei ends his turn.
Turn 5: Grady
Grady draws "Drain Strike". He then switches "Frozen Fitzgerald" to Attack Position. Grady then equips "Frozen Fitzgerald" with "Drain Strike". Grady attacks "Sonic Chick" with "Frozen Fitzgerald". "Sonic Chick" is not destroyed because of its effect. Due to the effect of "Drain Strike", "Frozen Fitzgerald" inflicts halved Piercing Damage to Yusei (Yusei 1200 → 100 Life Points) and increases Grady's Life Points by the damage Yusei took (Grady 3000 → 4100 Life Points). Grady's hand contains "De-Synchro" and "Pot of Avarice". Grady ends his turn.
Turn 6: Yusei
Yusei draws "Nitro Synchron" and subsequently Normal Summons it in Attack Position (300/100). He then Special Summons "Quillbolt Hedgehog" in Attack Position (800/800) using its own effect. He then activates "Graceful Revival" to Special Summon "Speed Warrior" in Attack Position (900/400). Yusei then tunes "Nitro Synchron", "Speed Warrior", "Quillbolt Hedgehog", and "Sonic Chick" together to Synchro Summon "Nitro Warrior" (2800/1800) in Attack Position. Since "Speed Warrior" has been removed from the field, "Graceful Revival" is destroyed and because of the effect of "Quillbolt Hedgehog", the latter is removed from play. Yusei then draws "Junk Barrage", due to "Nitro Synchron's" effect. Yusei equips "Junk Barrage" to "Nitro Warrior" and because a Spell Card was activated this turn, "Nitro Warrior" gains 1000 ATK for its next attack only ("Nitro Warrior": 2800 → 3800/1800). Yusei attacks and destroys "Frozen Fitzgerald" with "Nitro Warrior" (Grady 4100 → 2800 Life Points). Junk Barrage's effect then inflicts damage to Grady equal to half the ATK of "Frozen Fitzgerald" (Grady 2800 → 1550 Life Points). "Nitro Warrior" then loses the boost it got from its own effect since its attack is now done ("Nitro Warrior": 3800 → 2800/1800). Grady Special Summons "Frozen Fitzgerald" in Defense Position via its own effect (2500/2500). Grady intends for Yusei to end his Battle Phase, so that the effect of "Frozen Fitzgerald" will destroy "Nitro Warrior", allowing Grady to attack Yusei directly with "Frozen Fitzgerald" on his next turn which will win him the Duel. Yusei then uses "Nitro Warrior's" effect to switch "Frozen Fitzgerald" to Attack Position and attack it again. "Nitro Warrior" destroys "Frozen Fitzgerald" (Grady 1550 → 1250 Life Points). "Junk Barrage" then inflicts damage to Grady equal to half the ATK of "Frozen Fitzgerald" (Grady 1250 → 0 Life Points).
Differences in adaptationsEdit
- In the English dub, Angela's article is changed to Latin with all the Latin in different terms of translation, font, lines, and style of the letters than the original Japanese text. The same "Latin" paragraph is repeated all over the article. The top title, the part of the site it is on, and the Japanese kana, as well as part of the monitor's frame are erased as well.
- When Yusei Tributes "Junk Warrior" to Summon "Turret Warrior" he said the latter card gains 2000 ATK when it actually gained 2300.
- When Yusei looks through Grady's Deck, there is a "Karate Man" that is at least Level 5.
- When Grady is holding Frozen Fitzgerald the card has 3000 attack and defense points
