Due to the effect of "The Winged Dragon of Ra", its ATK and DEF are equal to the ATK and DEF of the monster(s) Tributed ("The Winged Dragon of Ra": ? → 5825 /? → ???). (NOTE: Normally, 3 tributes are required and no Life Points are needed to Tribute Summon an Egyptian God Card but in the original, Odion explains that since "Mystical Beast Serket" destroyed 3 monsters, it can serve as 3 tributes; the dub makes it seem like an ability of "Temple of the Kings").

Odion orders "The Winged Dragon of Ra" to attack directly, but since it is a counterfeit copy created by Marik, it disobeys. Instead, Odion's actions anger the real "The Winged Dragon of Ra" (from inside Marik's Deck), causing it to summon bolts of lightning that knock out both duelists, and destroying Odion's replica Millennium Rod. With both duelists unconscious, Kaiba declaires that if neither duelist can stand up in the next few minutes they would both be disqualified. Joey has an encouraging dream and manages to stand up before Odion and is declared the winner.

Aftermath

Kaiba realizes that the "Winged Dragon of Ra" that "Marik" used was a fake when it didn't attack Joey when he ordered it to. With Odion's sham exposed, he congratulates Joey for dueling honorably, Even though he shares the same sentiment, Joey tells him to come clean. Odion then points at Namu and tells Joey and Yami that he is only a servant to the real Marik. With Marik's secret also exposed he proclaims he will finish what his servants couldn't. Suddenly, a dark force begins to emerge from Marik. With Odion slipping out of consciousness, he says a great evil from with Marik is about to emerge. When Odion falls unconscious, the evil within Marik takes control and becomes Yami Marik, who says he will do whatever it takes to claim Yami's power.
