"The King of the Copycats, Part 2", known as "VS Yugi's Deck (Second Part)" in the Japanese version, is the nineteenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. It first aired in Japan on February 9, 2005 and in the United States on November 18, 2005.

Jaden's Duel against Yugi Muto's Deck, as used by Dimitri, continues. Unveiling more and more of Yugi's cards, Dimitri continually Summons monsters even stronger than "Dark Magician" (who was believed to be the strongest of the Deck).

Summary

Jaden Yuki continues to struggle against Yugi Muto's Deck, as used by Dimitri, who still has 4000 Life Points, while Jaden has been reduced to 1300. Dimitri has "Dark Magician of Chaos" on the field and Bastion Misawa doubts that Jaden will be able to find a way to make a comeback. Jaden draws "Winged Kuriboh", who seems eager to battle the monsters of his previous owner. Jaden Summons it in Defense Position and Sets a card. Dimitri opts to Summon the original "Kuriboh" in Attack Position. Dimitri attacks Jaden's "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" with the "Dark Magician of Chaos", but Jaden activates his face-down card "Super Junior Confrontation", which negates the attack and forces each of their weakest monsters to battle - in this case, "Winged Kuriboh" and "Kuriboh", with the latter destroying the former. "Super Junior Confrontation" then ends the Battle Phase. Dimitri Sets a card to end his turn. Jaden plays "Pot of Greed" to draw two cards, and then Summons "Elemental Hero Bubbleman" before activating "Skyscraper" and equipping "Bubbleman" with "Bubble Blaster", giving it an 1800-point attack boost. He attacks "Kuriboh", but Dimitri activates his face-down "Multiply", Tributing "Kuriboh" to Special Summon four "Kuriboh Tokens" in Defense Position, one of which Jaden destroys with "Bubbleman" before Setting a card.

Dimitri then activates "Card of Sanctity", letting both players draw until they hold six cards. One of the cards Dimitri drew is "Watapon", who is Special Summoned via its own effect. Dimitri Tributes it to Summon "Dark Magician Girl", who gains 300 attack due to the "Dark Magician" in Dimitri's Graveyard. "Dark Magician of Chaos" attacks "Bubbleman", with "Bubble Blaster" being destroyed and the battle damage negated. "Dark Magician Girl" then attacks and destroys "Bubbleman". Bastion believes Jaden is now cornered and that end is near. However, Jaden plays "Polymerization", fusing "Burstinatrix" with the "Avian" in his hand, Fusion Summoning "Elemental Hero Flame Wingman". He then plays "The Warrior Returning Alive", adding "Elemental Hero Sparkman" from his Graveyard to his hand, and then Summoning him in Attack Position. Jaden destroys "Dark Magician of Chaos" with "Flame Wingman", augmented by the power of "Skyscraper", and between the Battle damage and his monster's effect, reduces Dimitri from a full 4000 Life Points to just 900. "Sparkman" then destroys a "Kuriboh Token" and Jaden then sets two cards, one of which he sends to the Graveyard with "Emergency Provisions" to gain 1000 Life Points.

Dimitri is unimpressed, and switches "Dark Magician Girl" to Defense Position before activating "Spider Web, which lets him take "Emergency Provisions" from Jaden's Graveyard. He then Sets two cards and activates "Monster Reincarnation", discarding a card to add "Kuriboh" from his Graveyard to his hand. He chains Jaden's "Emergency Provisions" from his hand, sending his two face-down cards and "Monster Reincarnation" to the Graveyard to gain 3000 Life Points. Jaden destroys "Dark Magician Girl" with "Flame Wingman, putting Dimitri back at 1600 Life Points after its effect resolves. Jaden plays "De-Fusion", Special Summoning "Avian" and "Burstinatrix" from his Graveyard, and returning "Flame Wingman" to the Fusion Deck. He destroys the two "Kuriboh Tokens" with his newly Summoned monsters, and then attacks directly with "Sparkman", believing he's won, but Dimitri discards "Kuriboh", reducing the damage from the last attack to zero.

Dimitri declares he will show Jaden this Deck's true power, and states he is removing one DARK-attribute and one LIGHT-attribute monster in his Graveyard from play. Jaden, Syrus Truesdale and Chumley Huffington cannot think of a circumstance when this would Summon a monster, but Bastion realizes what Dimitri is doing. He explains that are two cards that can be Summoned in this way - "Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End" and "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning", and that the former has been banned from official Duel Monsters tournaments due to its attack strength and powerful effect, just like its real-world counterpart. However, the second monster has not been similarly banned, as people doubted that any copies of it remained in existence and that is what Dimitri is Summoning. Removing "Kuriboh" and "Watapon" from play, he Summons the most powerful monster of Yugi's Deck - "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning". It attacks and destroys "Avian", leaving Jaden with 800 Life Points. Since it successfully destroyed a monster in battle, its effect permits it to have a second attack, and Dimitri declares an attack against "Burstinatrix", with Jaden activating his face-down "Hero Spirit", causing the spirit of "Avian" to block the attack. Jaden explains he can negate the attack and damage if an "Elemental Hero" was already destroyed this turn. Jaden still believes he's done for, but the spirit of "Winged Kuriboh" manages to convince him continue, helping him remember that he's not facing Yugi, just someone using his Deck.

Jaden plays "Silent Doom", Special Summoning "Avian" from his Graveyard in Defense Position. He then plays "Double Spell", which lets him discard a Spell Card from his hand to use a Spell Card from his opponent's Graveyard. He chooses "Polymerization", fusing the two monsters he has on the Field to Fusion Summon "Flame Wingman" once more. With the boost from "Skyscraper", it destroys "Black Luster Soldier" and its effect reduces Dimitri's Life Points to zero. Dimitri collapses, and questions how he could still lose even with Yugi's Deck. Zane Truesdale and Alexis Rhodes appear. They reveal that they too had wanted to see the Deck early, and found the display case broken into. That lead them outside, where they found the Duel. They chose not to stop it, and other students emerge from all around the surrounding cliffside. They Duel had attracted a large audience, and all are grateful for being able to see Yugi's Deck in a Duel, and amazed that Jaden defeated it. They also all agree not to turn Dimitri in, and are extremely impressed that he used that Deck as well as he did after having it for such a short amount of time. He still believes he'll never be a good Duelist, and Jaden and Zane give him some advice. He lost because he wasn't able to believe in his Deck - because it was never his to begin with. They tell him to create a new Deck, with his own strategies. Dimitri returns the Deck, but he also misinterprets the advice, believing he must perfect his imitations of others even more. The next day, he dresses just like Jaden, wearing a brown wig and Slifer Red uniform. He then proceeds to completely misquote Jaden's catchphrases and signature pose much to Jaden's anger.

Featured Duel: Jaden Yuki vs. Dimitri

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 11: Jaden
Jaden draws "Winged Kuriboh" and subsequently Normal Summons it (300/200) in Defense Position. He then Sets a card.

Turn 12: Dimitri
Dimitri draws "Kuriboh" and subsequently Normal Summons it (300/200) in Attack Position. "Dark Magician of Chaos" attacks "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix", but Jaden activates "Super Junior Confrontation" to negate the attack and force the weakest monster controlled by each player to battle each other instead. "Kuriboh" attacks and destroys "Winged Kuriboh". After the battle, "Super Junior Confrontation" ends the Battle Phase. Dimitri then Sets a card.

Turn 13: Jaden
Jaden draws "Pot of Greed" and subsequently activates it to draw 2 cards. He Normal Summons "Elemental Hero Bubbleman" (800/1200) in Attack Position. He then activates "Skyscraper". Now when an Elemental Hero monster battles a monster whose ATK is higher, that Elemental Hero will gain 1000 ATK during damage calculation. Jaden then activates "Bubble Blaster", equipping it to "Bubbleman" and increasing its ATK by 800 ("Bubbleman": 800 → 1600/1200). Now if "Bubbleman" would be destroyed by battle, Jaden can destroy "Bubble Blaster" to prevent the destruction of "Bubbleman" and reduce the Battle Damage from the attack to 0. "Bubbleman" attacks "Kuriboh", but Dimitri activates "Multiply" to Tribute "Kuriboh" and Special Summon 4 "Kuriboh Tokens" (300/200 each) in Defense Position. These tokens can't be Tributed for a Tribute Summon. A replay occurs, and Jaden uses "Bubbleman" to attack and destroy 1 "Kuriboh Token". Jaden then Sets a card ("Polymerization").

Turn 14: Dimitri
Dimitri draws "Card of Sanctity" and subsequently activates it to let both players draw until they're holding 6 cards (One of the cards Dimitri drew" is "Watapon"). Since Dimitri added "Watapon" from his Deck to his hand via a card effect, he Special Summons it (200/300) in Attack Position. Dimitri then Tributes "Watapon" to Tribute Summon "Dark Magician Girl" (2000/1700) in Attack Position. Due to the effect of "Dark Magician Girl", it gains 300 ATK for each "Dark Magician" in either player's Graveyard. There is only one, so "Dark Magician Girl" gains 300 ATK ("Dark Magician Girl": 2000 → 2300/1700). "Dark Magician of Chaos" attacks "Bubbleman", but Jaden destroys "Bubble Blaster" to prevent his monster from being destroyed and reduce the Battle Damage he would take to 0 ("Bubbleman": 1600 → 800/1200). "Dark Magician Girl" attacks "Bubbleman". The effect of "Skyscraper" activates during damage calculation ("Bubbleman": 800 → 1800/1200). "Dark Magician Girl" destroys "Bubbleman" (Jaden 1300 → 800).

Turn 15: Jaden
Jaden draws. He then activates "Polymerization" to fuse "Burstinatrix" with "Avian" in order to Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Flame Wingman" (2100/1200) in Attack Position. Jaden then activates "The Warrior Returning Alive" to return "Elemental Hero Sparkman" from his Graveyard to his hand. Jaden then Normal Summons "Elemental Hero Sparkman" (1600/1400) in Attack Position.

"Elemental Hero Flame Wingman" attacks "Dark Magician of Chaos". The effect of "Skyscraper" activates during damage calculation ("Flame Wingman": 2100 → 3100/1200). "Flame Wingman" destroys "Dark Magician of Chaos" (Dimitri 4000 → 3700). After damage calculation, "Flame Wingman's" ATK goes back to normal ("Flame Wingman": 3100 → 2100/1200). Since "Flame Wingman" destroyed a monster by battle and sent it to the Graveyard, Dimitri takes damage equal to the ATK of his destroyed monster (Dimitri 3700 → 900). "Sparkman" attacks and destroys another "Kuriboh Token". Jaden then Sets 2 cards. He then activates "Emergency Provisions" to send 1 of his set cards to the Graveyard and gain 1000 Life Points (Jaden 800 → 1800).

Turn 16: Dimitri
Dimitri draws. He then switches "Dark Magician Girl" to Defense Position. Dimitri then activates "Spider Web" to add "Emergency Provisions" from Jaden's Graveyard to his hand. Dimitri then Sets 2 cards. He then activates "Monster Reincarnation". Dimitri then activates "Emergency Provisions" and chains it to the activation of "Monster Reincarnation". The effects of both Spells resolve in reverse order. "Emergency Provisions" sends "Monster Reincarnation" and Dimitri's two set cards to the Graveyard and increases his Life Points by 1000 for each card sent this way. Since three were sent this way, Dimitri gains 3000 Life Points (Dimitri 900 → 3900). Due to the effect of "Monster Reincarnation" (since it was sent to the Graveyard without being negated), Dimitri discards 1 card to add "Kuriboh" from his Graveyard to his hand.

Turn 17: Jaden
Jaden draws. "Elemental Hero Flame Wingman" attacks "Dark Magician Girl". The effect of "Skyscraper" activates during damage calculation ("Flame Wingman": 2100 → 3100/1200). "Flame Wingman" destroys "Dark Magician Girl". After damage calculation, "Flame Wingman's" ATK goes back to normal ("Flame Wingman": 3100 → 2100/1200). Since "Flame Wingman" destroyed a monster by battle and sent it to the Graveyard, Dimitri takes damage equal to the ATK of his monster (Dimitri 3900 → 1600).

Jaden then activates "De-Fusion" to return "Flame Wingman" to the Fusion Deck and Special Summon "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" (1200/800) and "Elemental Hero Avian" from his Graveyard in Attack Position. "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" and "Elemental Hero Avian" attack and destroy the last two "Kuriboh Tokens". "Elemental Hero Sparkman" attacks Dimitri directly, but Dimitri discards "Kuriboh" from his hand to make the Battle Damage from "Sparkman's" attack 0.

Turn 18: Dimitri
Dimitri draws "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning". He then removes from play "Kuriboh" (a DARK monster) and "Watapon" (a LIGHT monster) from his Graveyard in order to Special Summon "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning" (3000/2500) in Attack Position. "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning" attacks "Elemental Hero Avian". The effect of "Skyscraper" activates during damage calculation ("Avian": 1000 → 2000/1000). "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning" then destroys "Avian" (Jaden 1800 → 800). Since "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning" destroyed a monster in battle, "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning" may attack again. "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning" attacks "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix", but Jaden activates "Hero Spirit" to negate the attack as an "Elemental Hero" was already destroyed this turn.

Turn 19: Jaden
Jaden draws "Silent Doom" and subsequently activates it to Special Summon "Elemental Hero Avian" from his Graveyard (1000/1000) in Defense Position. Jaden then activates "Double Spell" to discard a Spell Card and activate Dimitri's "Polymerization" as his card, allowing Jaden to fuse "Avian" and "Burstinatrix" together and Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Flame Wingman" (2100/1200) in Attack Position.

"Elemental Hero Flame Wingman" attacks "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning". The effect of "Skyscraper" activates during damage calculation ("Flame Wingman": 2100 → 3100/1200). "Flame Wingman" destroys "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning" (Dimitri 1600 → 1500). After damage calculation, "Flame Wingman's" ATK goes back to normal ("Flame Wingman": 3100 → 2100/1200). Since "Flame Wingman" destroyed a monster by battle and sent it to the Graveyard, Dimitri takes damage equal to the ATK of his monster (Dimitri 1500 → 0).

Jaden wins.

Differences in adaptations

  • The dub cuts a short scene after "Dark Magician Girl" is Summoned, in which Sho blushes horribly. "Dark Magician Girl" then flirtatiously winks at him, and he blushes even more, before stating he almost wants to root for Kaguarazka (Dimitri) because of her.
    • A short scene after her destruction is also cut, in which Sho tearfully says goodbye to her by saying "Sayonara, Black Magician Girl".
  • Dimitri makes several references to the Heart of the Cards in the dub, which was not present in the Japanese, as that term was never used.
  • In the dub, the music used for Dimitri (as Yugi) is taken from Yu-Gi-Oh! Capsule Monsters since it differs somewhat from the music usually used during the original series (though some of the music used for Yugi's monsters are kept from the original series).
