Joey Wheeler and Johnson faced each other in a game of Duel Monsters, during the Battle City arc, in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. It is based on Katsuya Jonouchi and Big 3's Duel in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Manga.

Prior Events

Joey Wheeler searches a mansion to try and find a way out, while Yugi Muto and Téa Gardner search for the others in the frozen region. Joey kicks down a wall and finds a door, which seems to lead back to the hanger where the KaibaCorp blimp is. Once inside the blimp, Joey comes across the unconscious body of Mai Valentine, which seems to wake up. Joey is happy to see "Mai" awake until she speaks with a male voice. Joey realizes this is a trick and the imposter sheds his disguise, revealing himself to be Johnson, KaibaCorp's former legal adviser and an expert layer for The Big Five. He proposes that he and Joey duel and if Joey loses the latter's body will belong to the former. As Joey accepts, Johnson changes the setting to one befitting him, a courtroom. Johnson then transforms into his deck master, "Judge Man". Duelists are to select cards from the Virtual Card Database, and Joey sticks with what he knows. Joey selects Flame Swordsman as his deck master.
