Summons "Swallowtail Spike Lizard" (1900 ATK / 700 DEF) in Defense Position. As long as it remains in Defense Position, Marik will receive 1000 Life Points during each of his Standby Phases (NOTE: in the real game, "Swallowtail Spike Lizard" is called "Granadora" and it increases your life points by 1000 when you summon it to your side of the field and decreases your life points by 2000 when it is sent to the graveyard from the field).
"Bowganian's" effect inflicts 300 damage to Yami on the End Phase (Yugi: 1000 → 700 Life Points). (NOTE: Bowganian's effect inflicts 600 damage to the opponent, and its effect also only works during the controller's standby phase.)
Yami activates Spell Card "Soul Taker", allowing Marik to gain 1000 Life Points (Marik: 1 → 1001 Life Points) but also allowing Yugi to use one of Marik's monsters as a Tribute. He chooses "Egyptian God Slime" and, according to Battle City Rules, a Fusion Monster is treated as a number of Tribute Monsters equal to its number of Fusion Material Monsters. Yugi Tributes Egyptian God Slime and, since it is treated as a doubleTribute, Yugi can activate "Obelisk the Tormentor's" special ability: destroying all of Marik's monsters and inflicting 4000 damage to his Life Points ("The Winged Dragon of Ra's" special effect makes it immune, but Marik would still lose 4000 Life Points). (NOTE: To represent how destructive the effect is, Obelisk's ATK is shown to increase to ∞ while it activates it).
In the dub, whilst Marik is possesing Téa, yellow light has been added to Téa's eyes.
When Marik is thinking how Yami could be so forgiving after all he has done to him, Marik's flashback is changed in the English version to show Marik on his ship, then Lumis and Umbra and various Rare Hunters, before showing mind-controlled Téa and Joey. In the Japanese version, the flashback shows Pandora, then the Silent Puppet.
As in previous episodes, cut is a shot of Marik wagging his tongue.
