"The Forbidden Ritual, Part 2", known as "Summon - Ultimate Sealed God, Exodius!" in the Japanese version, is the one hundred and forty-fifth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. It first aired in Japan on July 18, 2007 and in the US on May 24, 2008.

In his quest to release Exodia, Adrian continues his Duel with Aster, intent on using the power of Exodia to escape from Yubel's influence.


Echo willingly steps forward to be sacrificed by Adrian in order to release Exodia's seal during the latter's Duel with Aster. Aster questions how Adrian can claim to love Echo but still be wiling to sacrifice her. Adrian refuses to respond, and Exodia's hand appears and grabs Echo. Aster states he won't continue the Duel, but Adrian responds that they can't stop now - neither can leave until one of them loses. Adrian Summons "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" and Aster comments that it's "a different Exodia". This card actually makes it beneficial to send Exodia pieces to the Graveyard - if all five are sent there via it's effect, Adrian can declare an automatic win.

Jaden comments that Adrian is just like him - they are both willing to risk everything to gain power. In the Japanese version, Aster specifically says that this isn't a sacrifice - it's murder. Adrian freely agrees with him - it is murder. Aster attempts to counter Adrian's strategy by playing cards that skip Adrian's Battle Phase, which would prevent him from sending Exodia pieces to the Graveyard. However, Adrian ultimately wins by playing "Rage of the Forbidden One", negating Aster's "Plasma Discharger". This allows him sacrifice Echo, win the Duel, and release Exodia - who becomes his servant. With Exodia's power, Adrian is free from Yubel's, and thus the Devil Arm fades away and is replaced with his own.

With Aster about to lose, he urges the rest of the group to flee before Exodius attacks. The attack hits, and Aster fades away as Jaden, Syrus, Dr. Crowler, Zane and Ojama Yellow barely make it out in time. Outside, Exodia slowly lumbers away, with Adrian perched on it's shoulder. Adrian taunts Jaden as they pass calling him "The Supreme King's cast-off shell" and "not worth Dueling". Adrian then vows to dedicate his future victory over Yubel to Echo.

  • Aster activates "Plasma Roar", which can only be activated during the Standby Phase while he controls "Destiny Hero - Plasma". A Plasma Counter is placed on "Plasma Roar" after its activation. (Also, after 2 or more Plasma Counters are placed on "Plasma Roar", Aster can also send it to the Graveyard, which will allow him to destroy 1 monster Adrian controls and inflict half its ATK to him as damage.)

  • Sends "Exodia the Forbidden One" from his hand to the Graveyard and continues his attack with "Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" (5000/0).
