"The Dark Spirit Revealed, Part 3" known as "Shatter the Darkness - One Hit of the God!" in the Japanese version, is the eighty-fourth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. It first aired in Japan on November 27, 2001, and in the United States on September 13, 2003.
Yami Yugi has 750 Life Points and controls "Gamma The Magnet Warrior" (1500/1800), "Dark Magician Girl" (2500/2000), and "Dark Necrofear" (2200/2800) in Attack Position, "Big Shield Gardna" (100/2600) in Attack Position, and "Magic Formula" (equipped to "Dark Magician Girl").
Yami Yugi prepares to attack, but Odion disguised as Marik appears and uses his Millennium Rod to turn Yami Bakura back into Bakura Ryou (in reality, the real Marik Ishtar persuaded Yami Bakura to release the real Bakura). Yami Bakura tries to use Bakura as a shield to prevent Yami Yugi from attacking and winning the Duel, but eventually Yami Bakura takes over and decides to take the hit instead of losing his host. "Slifer the Sky Dragon" attacks directly (Yami Bakura 1200 → 0).
Changes to the English Version
Cut from the English version is a closeup shot of "Dark Necrofear" and her baby going to the graveyard.
Cut from the English version is a shot of Mai goggling at "Slifer" and questioning if this is really the Egyptian God Card she heard of.
The three God cards are added to a closeup of Ishizu in the English version.
Cut from the English version is a shot of Joey making rude gestures with his arm.
The blood on Bakura's arm is removed from the English version.
After Odion walks away, in the English dub he thinks he must do what Marik tells him because Marik knows what's best, but in the original version, he expresses an internal pain from what Marik is telling him to do.
Yugi explaining Bakura's plans are replaced with flashbacks of the duel between Yami Yugi and Yami Bakura.
Some flashbacks of the duel, like the first showing Odion as Marik to the left of Yami Yugi, who is on top of the arena, are not shown in the English version's actual battle.
The scene at the end of the episode where Teá falls under Marik's control is given a golden glow in the English dub, and laughter from Marik and then herself is heard when she holds the Millennium Ring.
When all of Yugi's friends run up to Bakura after the arena is lowered, Marik (disguised as Namu) is not seen with them, but after Tristan has Bakura on his back, Marik is finally seen next to Duke, walking away with the rest of them.
With the Millennium Ring at the edge of the playing field and no one taking it as the group walked away to Bakura's room with him on Tristan's back, (since they didn't notice it was gone until they were in the room), Tea (even in Marik's control) would not have been able to have it, since she was with them until the others went to talk to Kaiba about medical help.
This is both the first time Yugi Summons an "Egyptian God Card" and the only time he does so by Tributing three distinct monsters as opposed to monsters from a set or multiples of the same Monster Token.
After Yami Yugi attacks Yami Bakura, the Millennium Ring goes flying, and Bakura Ryou is knocked out. If you look closely after Yami Yugi ran up to see if Bakura was okay, the Millennium Ring can be seen near the edge of the playing field.
