The United States The King of Duelists was a Duel Monsters tournament in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, won by Maximillion Pegasus, who humiliated Bandit Keith in the final. Its finals took place in the New York Duel Stadium.

In the English dub of the anime, the events from this tournament are said to be the Intercontinental Championship.

This tournament finals are based on an event from the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, where Keith challenged Pegasus to a Duel.


In the final, Pegasus did not touch any of his cards. He instead performed a Mind Scan on Keith, learning all his strategies and then wrote down instructions on how to counter them. He handed them to a child from the audience, Sam, whom he got to Duel in his place. With the instructions, Sam defeated Keith.
