Yami Yugi, Joey Wheeler, Seto Kaiba and Yami Marik's Battle Royale


Yami Yugi, Joey Wheeler, Seto Kaiba and Yami Marik faced each other in a game of Duel Monsters, during the Battle City arc, in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. It is based on the same duel from the manga.

Prior Events

After the events of the Virtual World arc, which Seto Kaiba proclaimed never happened, the Semi-Finals of the Battle City Tournament can now begin. To determine turn order, the four semi-finalists, Yami Yugi, Joey Wheeler, Seto Kaiba and Yami Marik, will have a battle royale, to determine who will face who in the tournament. The rules were simple: the first two duelists to lose will face each other in the first match, while the last two will face each other in the second match.

The rules:

  • Each duelist must play with no more than 40 cards.
  • Each duelist can attack whoever they want, but can not attack until one turn has passed.
  • Each player must select one monster to determine turn order and the monster with the highest ATK gets to go first, but the card they select must be removed from play until the battle royale is finished.

The duel commences.


The matchup for the semi-finals have been determined. Joey will face off against Yami Marik, while Yami Yugi and Seto Kaiba prepare for their rematch.
