"Isolated in Cyber Space, Part 1", known as "Deck Master - Deepsea Warrior" in the Japanese version, is the ninety-ninth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. It first aired in Japan on March 19, 2002 and in the United States on November 8, 2003.
Yugi must construct his Deck from scratch by choosing from a supply of virtual cards, and Egyptian God Cards are not in the available database. (This is true for all Duels in this arc.) He also must choose each card wisely because once he chooses a card it remains in his Deck until the end of the Duel.
Téa wanders through a canyon-like wasteland and is attacked by a group of Hitotsu-Me Giants. During the ambush she sustains a small cut on her cheek despite that everything is supposed to be an illusion. The terrified girl attempts to flee from the monsters, but another of them blocks her escape and strikes her down.
Kaiba and Mokuba, walking down a forest path, find a virtual door. Inside the door is an image of the orphanage where they used to live.
Turn 3: Gansley
Gansley draws "Ipiria" and subsequently Normal Summons it (500/500) in Attack Position. The effect of "Ipiria" then activates, allowing Gansley to draw a card. Gansley then Flip Summons "Ashingray" (500/500). This activates the Flip Effect of "Ashingray" and Yugi discards "De-Spell".
"Quick Attack" appears out of nowhere in Yugi's hand. He didn't have it in the previous turn and the card he draws that turn is "Polymerization".
Differences In adaptations
Gansley doesn't introduce himself in the Japanese version, and the image of his face overlaying with that of "Deepsea Warrior" doesn't occur.
In the Japanese episodes, throughout the 3 parts of this Duel, Yugi can understand what "Kuriboh" is saying while in the dub he can not.
In the Japanese dub, when Anzu is being chased by the Hitotsu-Me Giants, she calls out for Yugi to help her. In the dub however, she just calls for someone to help her, probably to downgrade the extent of her crush on him, for maturity reasons.
The small rock that strikes Anzu's face when she is attacked by the Hitotsu-Me Giants leaves a small gash in the original. This is digitized out in the dub.
The following cards appeared in this episode. Cards in italics debuted here.
