"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.

Summary

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.

Featured Duel: Aster Phoenix vs. Adrian Gecko

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 5: Adrian
Adrian has just activated the effect of "Ritual of the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" with Echo having agreed to offer her life force in exchange for the awakening of Exodia. Due to the effect of "Ritual of the Ultimate Forbidden Lord", Adrian returns "Exodia the Forbidden One" from his Graveyard to his Deck, discards "Right Arm of the Forbidden One" and "Left Arm of the Forbidden One" from his hand, and Special Summons "Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" (?/0) in Attack Position.

Since "Exodios" was Special Summoned through the effect of "Ritual of the Ultimate Forbidden Lord", a "Forbidden One" monster will return to Adrian's Deck if it was not sent to the Graveyard through the third effect of "Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord".[Notes 1]

Due to the fourth effect of "Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord", it gains 1000 ATK for each differently named "Forbidden One" monster in Adrian's Graveyard. There are two, so "Exodios" gains 2000 ATK ("Exodios": ? → 2000/0). In addition, if 5 differently named "Forbidden One" monsters are in Adrian's Graveyard and "Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" is present on Adrian's side of the field, Adrian can declare an automatic win.[Notes 2]

"Exodios" attacks "Destiny Hero - Disk Commander". Adrian activates the third effect of "Exodios" to send "Right Leg of the Forbidden One" from his hand to the Graveyard ("Exodios": 2000 → 3000/0). "Exodios" then destroys "Destiny Hero - Disk Commander" (Aster 4000 → 1300).

Turn 6: Aster
Aster draws "Destiny Hero - Malicious". He then sets a card. Aster then activates the effect of "Destiny Hero - Dunker" to send "Destiny Hero - Malicious" from his hand to the Graveyard and inflict 500 damage to Adrian (Adrian 1800 → 1300). Aster then activates the effect of "Doctor D" to Special Summon "Destiny Hero - Disk Commander" from his Graveyard in Attack Position (300/300). Since "Disk Commander" was Special Summoned from Aster's Graveyard, its effect activates, letting Aster draw 2 cards.

Aster then Tributes "Destiny Hero - Diamond Dude", "Disk Commander", and "Dunker" in order to Special Summon "Destiny Hero - Dogma" (3400/2400) in Attack Position. "Destiny Hero - Dogma" attacks "Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord". Due to the first effect of "Exodios", it is not destroyed, but Adrian still takes Battle Damage (Adrian 1300 → 900).[Notes 3]

Turn 7: Adrian
Adrian draws. During Adrian's Standby Phase, the effect of "Destiny Hero - Dogma" activates, halving Adrian's Life Points (Adrian 900 → 450). "Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" attacks "Destiny Hero - Dogma". Adrian then activates the third effect of "Exodios" to send "Left Leg of the Forbidden One" from his hand to the Graveyard ("Exodios": 3000 → 4000/0). "Exodios" then destroys "Dogma" (Aster 1300 → 700).

Turn 8: Aster
Aster draws "D - Mind" and subsequently activates it to Special Summon "Destiny Hero - Departed" (1000/0) from his Deck in Attack Position as he controls no "Destiny Hero" monsters. Aster then removes from play "Destiny Hero - Malicious" from his Graveyard in order to Special Summon another "Destiny Hero - Malicious" from his Deck (800/800) in Attack Position. Aster then Normal Summons "D3" (0/0) in Attack Position. He then Tributes "D3", "Destiny Hero - Malicious", and "Destiny Hero - Departed" in order to Special Summon "Destiny Hero - Plasma" (1900/600) in Attack Position.

Aster then activates "Drain Time" and declares Battle Phase for its effect. Now both players must skip their next phase of Aster's choice. Aster then sets a card.

Turn 9: Adrian
Adrian draws. During Adrian's Standby Phase, Aster activates "Plasma Roar", which gains a Plasma Counter due to "Destiny Hero - Plasma". Now if there are 2 or more Plasma Counters placed on "Plasma Roar", Aster can send "Plasma Roar" to the Graveyard, destroy 1 monster on the field and inflict half of that monster's ATK as damage to Adrian. Adrian then Sets a card.

Turn 10: Aster
Aster draws. During Aster's Standby Phase, the first effect of "Destiny Hero - Departed" activates, Special Summoning itself from Aster's Graveyard to Adrian's side of the field (1000/0) in Attack Position. "Plasma" attacks "Departed", but Adrian activates "Defense Seal Wall" to negate the attack and end the Battle Phase as he controls "Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord".

Aster then activates "Destiny Hero - Plasma's" effect to equip "Destiny Hero - Departed" onto it and increase its ATK by the ATK of "Destiny Hero - Departed" ("Plasma": 1900 → 2400/600).[Notes 4] Aster Sets a card.

Turn 11: Adrian
Adrian draws. During Adrian's Standby Phase, "Plasma Roar" gains another Plasma Counter. It now has a total of 2. Aster plans to activate the final effect of "Plasma Roar" on his next turn to destroy "Destiny Hero - Plasma" and inflict half of the latter's ATK as damage to Adrian.

"Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" attacks "Destiny Hero - Plasma", but Aster activates "Plasma Discharger" to destroy "Destiny Hero - Departed" ("Destiny Hero - Plasma": 2400 → 1900/600) and end Adrian's Battle Phase, however Adrian activates "Rage of the Forbidden One" to negate the effect of "Plasma Discharger". Adrian then activates the third effect of "Exodios" to send "Exodia the Forbidden One" from his hand to the Graveyard ("Exodios": 4000 → 5000/0). "Exodios" then destroys "Plasma" (Aster 700 → 0).

Since there are 5 differently named "Forbidden One" monsters in Adrian's Graveyard and "Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden Lord" is present on Adrian's side of the field, Adrian automatically wins the Duel.
