"The Legendary Dragon" is the third chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga. It was first printed in Japanese in the V Jump magazine on February 10, 2006 and in English in the Shonen Jump magazine. Both of which were printed in volume 1 of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX graphic novels afterwards.
Jaden continues his Duel with Chazz, impressed with Chazz's Summoning of "Dragonic Knight" on his first turn. Jaden Summons "Elemental Hero Terra Firma", but Chazz removes it from the field using "Reverse-Time" and also depletes nearly all of Jaden's Life Points. Chazz tells Jaden that Duelists should rely on their own strength, not their cards. Jaden replies that Duelists who stop caring for their cards are doomed, but Chazz remains unconvinced, thinking that he is facing a dilemma of fighting alone or with his partner.
Jaden Summons "Winged Kuriboh", and states that he trusts his card. Chazz says that cards are just tools, and plans on destroying "Winged Kuriboh", but Jaden uses "Transcendent Wings" to evolve Kuriboh to "Winged Kuriboh LV10", and uses its special ability to destroy all of Chazz's monsters and defeat him.
After the Duel, Jaden believes that he saw a dragon watching the Duel. Chazz sees the dragon, and realizes that his "partner" was watching the Duel. Chazz realizes that he was afraid to lose with his partner, but now wants to Duel alongside him again.
