"A Duel With Interest", known as "Terror! Loan Token Hell" in the Japanese version, is the sixty-ninth episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. It first aired in Japan on July 29, 2009.

Yusei and Crow have worked hard to prepare their Duel Runners for the World Racing Grand Prix. However, Jack hasn't worked at all, and Crow tells him to learn to be serious. But Jack apparently has another problem he must solve first. Carly learns of a loaner named Don Piero, who rips off people. Jack also learns about what he does to people and therefore challenges him to a Duel, betting his "Red Dragon Archfiend" and Phoenix Whirlwind in the process.

Featured Duel

Jack Atlas vs. Don Piero

Turn 1: Piero
Piero Draws "Upstart Goblin" and subsequently activates it, drawing 1 card from his Deck and increasing Jack's Life Points by 1000 (Jack 4000 → 5000 Life Points). The card Piero draws is "Endless Loan". Piero then Special Summons "Nefarious Trader" (0/0) in Attack Position since Jack's Life Points are higher than his. He then Normal Summons "Toichi the Nefarious Debt Collector" in Defense Position (800/1300). Piero then places 1 card face-down in his Spell & Trap Card Zone and ends his turn.

Turn 2: Jack
Jack draws. He then Normal Summons "Power Invader" with no Tributes in Attack Position (2200/0) as Piero controls at least two monsters. Piero activates "Endless Loan". Now whenever Jack summons a monster, Piero can Special Summon a Loan Token onto Jack's side of the field. Jack can however send one card from his hand to the Graveyard to destroy the Loan Token. Since Jack summoned "Power Invader", the effect of "Endless Loan" activates, Special Summoning a "Loan Token" onto Jack's side of the field in Defense Position (0/0). Because there is a Loan Token on the field, "Toichi the Nefarious Debt Collector" can't be destroyed in battle. "Power Invader" attacks and destroys "Nefarious Trader" (Piero 4000 → 1800 Life Points). The effect of "Nefarious Trader" activates, allowing Piero to Special Summon another Loan Token onto Jack's side of the field (0/0). Jack can destroy this token by sending a card from his hand to the Graveyard. Jack places 2 cards face-down in his Spell & Trap Card Zone and ends his turn.

Turn 3: Piero
Piero draws "Illegal Business Practices" and subsequently activates it, equipping it onto "Toichi the Nefarious Debt Collector". Now once per turn, Piero can double the effect damage that Jack takes from the effect of "Toichi the Nefarious Debt Collector". Piero activates the effect of "Toichi the Nefarious Debt Collector", allowing him to inflict damage to Jack's Life Points equal to the number of Loan Tokens Jack has times 1000. Since there are two, Jack takes 2000 damage. "Illegal Business Practices" then doubles the Effect Damage Jack takes (Jack 5000 → 1000 Life Points). Piero ends his turn.

Turn 4: Jack
Jack draws "Smile Kid". Jack then discards 1 card from his hand to Special Summon "Smile Kid" in Attack Position (0/0). The effect of "Endless Loan" activates, Special Summoning a third "Loan Token" onto Jack's side of the field in Defense Position (0/0). Jack then activates "Compulsory Recoil Device". Now Jack can send one card from his hand to the Graveyard to select 1 monster he controls and return it to its owner's hand. He then uses the effect of "Compulsory Recoil Device" to send one card in his hand to the Graveyard and return "Smile Kid" back to his hand. Jack then discards one card from his hand to Special Summon "Smile Kid" in Attack Position (0/0). Since Jack's Monster Card Zones are full, "Endless Loan" cannot summon anymore Loan Tokens onto his side of the field. Jack then activates "Zero Hole", allowing him to destroy every card on the field when he has no cards in his hand. Jack then activates "Smile Kid's" effect, allowing Jack to Special Summon "Smile Angel" in Attack Position (1800/300). "Smile Angel" then attacks Piero directly (Piero 1800 → 0 Life Points).

Jack wins.

Differences in adaptations

  • In the English dub, Don Piero is said to be a mob boss, when in the original, he was just a loan shark.
  • The scenes where Jack tries and is fired from several jobs receive some alterations in the English dub. For example, the restaurant that fired him was changed to just a pizza restaurant instead of a regular lunch service and when working at a store, he is fired for mistaking the deliveryman bringing a stock of magazines for his Chinese take-out deliveryman (In the original he complained to the man that his magazines didn't feature him in them).
  • In the original, Stephanie still has a crush on Jack after he gets fired from working at the cafe with her. In the English dub, she says Carly can "have him."
  • The scene at the beginning where one of Don Piero's goons hits a child to the floor in the original is cut out in the English dub.
  • In the last scene where Jack gets fired from Cafe la Green, Crow stated in the dub he better pick up a double shift tonight. In the original, he stated Jack hasn't changed much,having believed Jack changed a lot in a previous scene.
