"The Graduation Match, Part 2", known as "VS Kaiser (Second Part) - Final Fusion" in the Japanese version, is the fifty-second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. It first aired in Japan on September 28, 2005 and in the United States on April 6, 2006.

Jaden Yuki's rematch with Zane Truesdale continues, with them both unveiling counter after counter before the ultimate end of the Duel.


Zane Truesdale expresses his disappointment that his last Duel at Duel Academy had to end this way, and attacks Jaden Yuki's "Elemental Hero Wildedge" with his "Power Bond"-enhanced "Cyber End Dragon". Jaden activates his face-down "Soul Union", which adds the attack of the "Elemental Hero Bladedge" in his Graveyard to that of "Wildedge". Zane comments that that still isn't enough - Jaden's Life Points will still go from 1900 to zero with this attack. Jaden is flustered, as he has been using his head in this match, yet is still losing. The attack hits, and his Life Points go down to 100. He reveals that the chained his face-down "Emergency Provisions" at the last moment, sending "Soul Union" to the Graveyard to gain 1000 Life Points before the attack hit. He then activates his face-down "Hero Signal" to Special Summon" "Elemental Hero Bubbleman" from his Deck in Defense Position, drawing two cards via its effect. Zane Summons "Cyber Kirin" and immediately Tributes it using its effect. This negates any effect damage he would take during this turn, thus preventing the game-ending damage he'd have taken from "Power Bond".

Zane again reminds Jaden that using his head isn't something that comes naturally to him. Jaden realizes that in doing so, he's exhausted himself. He calls for Ms. Dorothy and asks her to bring him a snack. Zane allows him to take a break, and Dorothy brings out a rice cooker and prepares Jaden a snack, assisted by Sadie. After eating, the Duel continues, with Jaden playing "Pot of Greed" to draw two more cards. He then Summons "Elemental Hero Avian" in Defense Position, before playing "Spy Hero", which allows him to randomly discard two cards from his Deck in order to take a random Spell Card from Zane's Graveyard. It ends up being "Future Fusion", which Jaden immediately plays to fuse the "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" and "Elemental Hero Clayman" in his Deck to Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Rampart Blaster". The monster Summoned via "Future Fusion" cannot attack in the turn it is Summoned, so Jaden Sets two cards to end his turn. Zane Summons "Cyber Phoenix", whose effect allows him to negate a card effect that would target a single Machine-type monster on the field as long it remains in Attack Position. Zane attacks with "Cyber End Dragon", but Jaden activates his face-down "De-Fusion". Zane reiterates that "Cyber Phoenix" will negate an effect that targets "Cyber End Dragon", but Jaden splits his own "Rampart Blaster" into "Burstinatrix" and "Clayman" instead. A replay would then occur, but Jaden activates his face-down "Elemental Burst", Tributing the "EARTH"-attribute "Clayman", WIND-attribute "Avian", FIRE-attribute "Burstinatrix" and WATER-attribute "Bubbleman" to destroy all cards Zane controls. As this effect is not targeting a specific monster, "Cyber Phoenix" is unable to negate it, so both of Zane's monsters are destroyed, though the second effect of "Cyber Phoenix" lets him draw a card.

Zane activates "Time Fusion", which requires him to remove a card in his hand from play in order to Special Summon a Fusion Monster from his Graveyard during his next Standby Phase, while ignoring the Summoning conditions. Jaden simply Sets a card, and Zane begins his next turn. He reveals that the card he removed from play was "Card from a Different Dimension", which returns to his hand and lets both players draw two cards. "Cyber End Dragon" is then Special Summoned via "Time Fusion". However, the monster Summoned with "Time Fusion" cannot attack during the turn in which it was Summoned, so Zane Sets a card to end his turn. Jaden plays "Fusion Recovery", adding "Burstinatrix" and "Polymerization" from his Graveyard to his hand. He Summons the former, and then plays "Miracle Fusion" to remove it and the "Avian" in his Graveyard from play and Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Flame Wingman". He then uses "Polymerization" to fuse that with the "Elemental Hero Sparkman" in his hand to Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Shining Flare Wingman", whose attack increases to 4900 due to the seven "Elemental Heroes" in Jaden's Graveyard. He attacks and destroys "Cyber End Dragon", reducing Zane to 1100 Life Points. "Shining Flare Wingman's" effect would then activate to inflict damage equal to his destroyed monster's attack points to Zane, but he plays his face-down "Damage Polarizer", negating the damage and letting both players draw a card. Both draw the same one - "Battle Fusion". Jaden Sets his copy, and ends his turn.

Zane activates "Power Bond", and declares he'll Summon "Cyber End Dragon" once more, despite not having any copies of "Cyber Dragon" to use as Fusion Material Monsters. He activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Cybernetic Fusion Support", which lets him pay half of his Life Points to remove Machine-type Fusion Material Monsters in his Graveyard from play to perform a Fusion Summon. "Cyber End Dragon" is Summoned, with its attack doubled via "Power Bond". Zane then activates "Limiter Removal", doubling its attack points again. He attacks "Shining Flare Wingman", but Jaden activates his face-down "Battle Fusion", increasing the attack of "Shining Flare Wingman" by that of "Cyber End Dragon", for a total of 20,900. Zane chains his own "Battle Fusion", increasing "Cyber End Dragon's" attack by that of "Shining Flare Wingman", for a total of 36,900. Zane and Jaden both compliment each other, and Jaden activates "Final Fusion", which deals damage equal to the attack of the monsters currently engaged in battle to the Life Points of both players, meaning they both take 57,800 points of effect damage, thus ending the Duel in a DRAW. The gathered crowd all rise and begin to applaud.

Featured Duel: Jaden Yuki vs. Zane Truesdale

Turn 7: Zane
Turn continues from the previous episode.

Zane has just Fusion Summoned "Cyber End Dragon" with "Power Bond", and because he used "Power Bond" to summon "Cyber End Dragon", its ATK is doubled. "Cyber End Dragon" attacks Jaden's "Elemental Hero Wildedge", but Jaden activates his face-down "Soul Union" and his face-down "Emergency Provisions" with their effects activating in reverse order.

"Emergency Provisions" resolves first, sending "Soul Union" to the Graveyard and increasing Jaden's Life Points by 1000 (Jaden 1900 → 2900). "Soul Union resolves next (since it was sent to the Graveyard without being negated), targeting the "Elemental Hero Bladedge" in Jaden's Graveyard and increasing the ATK of "Wildedge" by the ATK of "Bladedge" ("Wildedge": 2600 → 5200/2300). "Cyber End Dragon" then destroys "Wildedge" (Jaden 2900 → 100).

Jaden then activates his face-down "Hero Signal" to Special Summon "Elemental Hero Bubbleman" (800/1200) from his Deck in Defense Position. Since "Elemental Hero Bubbleman" was summoned while Jaden had no other cards on his side of the field, its second effect activates, allowing Jaden to draw two cards. Zane Normal Summons "Cyber Kirin" (300/800) in Attack Position. He then Tributes "Cyber Kirin" in order to prevent himself from taking any effect damage this turn.

Turn 8: Jaden
Jaden draws. He then activates "Pot of Greed" to draw two cards. Jaden then Normal Summons "Elemental Hero Avian" (1000/1000) in Defense Position. He then activates "Spy Hero" to send two random cards from his Deck to the Graveyard and add Zane's "Future Fusion" from his Graveyard to his hand.

Jaden then activates "Future Fusion" to send "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" and " Elemental Hero Clayman" from his Deck to the Graveyard and Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Rampart Blaster" (2000/2500) in Defense Position. Jaden Sets two cards.

Turn 9: Zane
Zane draws "Cyber Phoenix" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1200/1600) in Attack Position. While "Cyber Phoenix" is in Attack Position, it can negate the effects of any Spells or Traps that specifically target one Machine-Type monster that Zane controls. Zane then uses "Cyber End Dragon" to attack "Elemental Hero Rampart Blaster" with the intention of having "Cyber End Dragon" inflict piercing damage to Jaden, but Jaden activates his face-down "De-Fusion" to send "Elemental Hero Rampart Blaster" to the Graveyard and Special Summon "Burstinatrix" (1200/800) and "Clayman" (800/2000) from his Graveyard in Attack Position.

Before a replay can occur, Jaden activates his face-down "Elemental Burst" to Tribute all four of his monsters ("Elemental Hero Clayman" of EARTH, "Elemental Hero Avian" of WIND, "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" of FIRE, and "Elemental Hero Bubbleman" of WATER) and destroy all cards that Zane controls. As "Cyber Phoenix" was destroyed, its last effect activates, allowing Zane to draw a card ("Time Fusion"). Zane then activates "Time Fusion" to remove from play one card in his hand and Special Summon "Cyber End Dragon" from his Fusion Deck during his next Standby Phase, ignoring the Summoning conditions, but that Fusion Monster will be unable to attack that turn.

Turn 10: Jaden
Jaden draws a card and subsequently sets it.

Turn 11: Zane
Zane draws. Since "Card from a Different Dimension" was removed from play on Zane's last turn (due to him using it for the cost of "Time Fusion"), its first effect activates, returning it to Zane's hand during the Standby Phase. After that resolves, the second effect of "Card from a Different Dimension" activates, allowing Zane and Jaden to draw two cards (Zane draws "Cybernetic Fusion Support" and "Limiter Removal" while Jaden draws "Miracle Fusion" and "Fusion Recovery" (which is incorrectly shown as "De-Fusion")). At the same time, the effect of "Time Fusion" activates, Special Summoning "Cyber End Dragon" (4000/2800) from his Fusion Deck in Attack Position. Zane sets a card.

Turn 12: Jaden
Jaden draws "Elemental Hero Sparkman". He then activates "Fusion Recovery" to add "Polymerization" and "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" from his Graveyard to his hand. He then Normal Summons "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" (1200/800) in Attack Position. Next Jaden activates "Miracle Fusion" to remove from play "Burstinatrix" and "Elemental Hero Avian" from his field and Graveyard in order to Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Flame Wingman" (2100/1200) in Attack Position.

Jaden then activates "Polymerization" to fuse "Flame Wingman" with "Sparkman" in order to Fusion Summon "Elemental Hero Shining Flare Wingman" (2500/2100) in Attack Position. Due to the effect of "Shining Flare Wingman", it gains 300 ATK for every "Elemental Hero" in Jaden's Graveyard. There are currently eight ("Shining Flare Wingman": 2500 → 4900/2100).

"Elemental Hero Shining Flare Wingman" attacks and destroys "Cyber End Dragon" (Zane 2000 → 1100). Since "Shining Flare Wingman" destroyed a monster in battle and sent it to the Graveyard, its second effect activates, inflicting damage to Zane equal to the original ATK of "Cyber End Dragon", but Zane activates his face-down "Damage Polarizer" to negate the effect of "Elemental Hero Shining Flare Wingman". After "Damage Polarizer" resolves successfully, its second effect activates, allowing Jaden and Zane to draw one card (They both draw "Battle Fusion"). Jaden Sets a card.

Turn 13: Zane
Zane draws "Power Bond" and subsequently activates it to Fusion Summon a Machine-type Fusion Monster by sending the appropriate Fusion Material Monsters to the Graveyard. As Zane is about to Fusion Summon a Machine-type Fusion Monster, he activates "Cybernetic Fusion Support" to pay half his Life Points (Zane 1100 → 550) and remove from play his three "Cyber Dragons" from his Graveyard and use "Cybernetic Fusion Support" as the substitute for the Fusion Material Monsters used for the Fusion Summon done by "Power Bond". "Power Bond" then Fusion Summons "Cyber End Dragon" in Attack Position with its ATK doubled (4000 → 8000/2800).

"Cyber End Dragon" attacks Jaden's "Shining Flare Wingman". Zane then activates "Limiter Removal" to double the ATK of "Cyber End Dragon" again ("Cyber End Dragon": 8000 → 16000/2800), but "Cyber End Dragon" will be destroyed on the End Phase. Jaden then activates his face-down "Battle Fusion" to increase the ATK of "Shining Flare Wingman" by the ATK of "Cyber End Dragon" ("Shining Flare Wingman": 4900 → 20900/2100). Zane then activates his own face-down "Battle Fusion" to increase the ATK of "Cyber End Dragon" by the ATK of "Shining Flare Wingman" ("Cyber End Dragon": 16000 → 36900/2800). Jaden then activates his face-down "Final Fusion" to inflict damage to both players equal to the combined ATK of their battling monsters (Jaden 100 → 0; Zane 550 → 0).


Differences in adaptations

In the Japanese version, Judai and Kaiser make references to the latter being "perfect". Just before the Duel ends, Kaiser tells Judai that he will one day surpass him. While Kaiser has reached his limit of "perfection", he states that Judai has "infinite potential".


  • For almost 8 years, "Cyber End Dragon" held the record for the highest achieved finite ATK in the series in this episode. This record was broken with the airing of episode 98 of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime, where "Number C39: Utopia Ray V" and "Number 104: Masquerade" achieved 83200 and 41700 ATK respectively, both topping Cyber End Dragon's record of 36900 ATK in this episode.
