"The State of Syrus", known as "Sho's Determination! "Proof of Friendship"" in the Japanese version, is the one hundred and thirty-seventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. It first aired in Japan on May 23, 2007 and in the US on February 7, 2008.

Syrus wanders, not able to face Jaden. He ends up in the company of Ojama Yellow, and meets with his brother, who gives him some indirect advice.


Jaden Yuki and Syrus Truesdale are shown Dueling at the main arena in Duel Academy. Jaden uses "Elemental Hero Tempest" to defeat Syrus. However, it's shown to be a dream, and Syrus wakes up in a dark cave by himself. Syrus hears someone yelling for help outside, and goes to assist them. It ends up being Ojama Yellow, who is in a river being carried downstream by a violent current. Syrus saves him and the two exchange information. Syrus ultimately leaves Ojama Yellow behind after he mentions Jaden, stating that he doesn't want to be with anyone right now.

Wanting to forget about Jaden entirely, Syrus throws his Duel Disk away, believing that he'll always remember Jaden if remembers Dueling. Syrus then encounters Doom Dozer, who is chasing Ojama Yellow, intent on making him it's next meal. Syrus attempts to leave, remembering he had vowed not to care for anyone else, but can't bring himself to do it. Despite not having a Duel Disk, he runs at Doom Dozer and distracts him long enough for Ojama Yellow to escape. This almost results in his own death, but he is saved by Zane Truesdale, who summons "Cyber End Dragon" and destroys Doom Dozer. However, the blast also knocks out Syrus.

Zane recovers Syrus' Duel Disk and departs once Syrus awakens, but thanks him for the concern he had shown towards and for trying to save him from himself. Zane meets back up with Aster Phoenix, as the two had been traveling together since they ended up in the same area of the dimension when they entered. He thinks he has little time left, and something important he still needs to do. Syrus finally makes his decision - he decides he needs to watch over Jaden, regardless of the latter's actions, he can't deny their friendship.

Differences in adaptations

Though the overall events in this episode remain the same, the English version has Syrus make numerous references to starting a "Syrus spin-off show", with him narrating his own actions as if he is such a show.


In the dub, Jaden mistakenly tells "Elemental Hero Avian" to attack when he was attacking with "Elemental Hero Tempest".
