Anime and manga

During the Battle City tournament, it is stated that players can only have one copy of "Monster Reborn" in their Decks. This influences Yami Yugi and Yami Marik's Duel, in which Yami Marik is forced to recycle his only copy of "Monster Reborn" in order to Special Summon "The Winged Dragon of Ra" from the Graveyard.
