Featured Duel: Yami Marik vs. Yugi Muto - Part 4

Duel continues from previous episode.

Turn 13: Yami Marik
Yami Marik has just managed to take "Monster Reborn" card back from his Graveyard via "Mining for Magical Stones". He then Sets two cards and Normal Summons "Swallowtail Spike Lizard" (1900/700) in Defense Position. As long as it remains in Defense Position, Marik will receive 1000 Life Points during each of his Standby Phases.

Turn 14: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Normal Summons "Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts" (1500/1200) in Defense Position and Sets two cards. On the End Phase, "Bowganian's" effect activates (Yugi 1000 → 700).

Turn 15: Yami Marik
Yami Marik draws "Surprise Attack from Beyond". On Yami Marik's Standby Phase, the effect of "Swallowtail Spike Lizard" activates (Marik 700 → 1700). Yami Marik activates "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon "The Winged Dragon of Ra" from his Graveyard (0/0) in Attack Position. Marik transforms "The Winged Dragon of Ra" into Egyptian God Phoenix. Yami Marik then Activates "The Winged Dragon of Ra's" first special effect, paying 1000 Life Points (Marik 1700 → 700) to destroy "Obelisk the Tormentor", but Yami Yugi activates his own "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon "Slifer the Sky Dragon" from his Graveyard (X000 → 2000/X000 → 2000) in Attack Position and use it to intercept Ra's effect; "Ra's" effect destroys "Slifer the Sky Dragon". Because Ra was Special Summoned, "The Winged Dragon of Ra" returns to Marik's Graveyard. Marik activates "Surprise Attack from Beyond" to allow himself to repeat his Battle Phase and Special Summon "The Winged Dragon of Ra" back to the field (0/0) in Attack Position. "The Winged Dragon of Ra" is now in its normal form. Yami Marik then pays all but 1 of his Life Points (Marik 700 → 1), in order to activate "The Winged Dragon of Ra's" second effect, increasing its ATK and DEF by the total amount of Life Points payed ("The Winged Dragon of Ra": 0 → 699/0 → 699). This effectively "fuses" Marik with Ra. Yami Yugi activates "Soul Taker" to increase Yami Marik's Life Points by 1000 (Marik 1 → 1001) and allow Yami Yugi to use one of Marik's monsters as a Tribute immediately. 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. Yami Yugi then Tributes Egyptian God Slime (since it is treated as a double Tribute) to activate "Obelisk the Tormentor's" effect, destroying all of Marik's monsters and inflicting 4000 damage to his Life Points ("The Winged Dragon of Ra's" effect makes it immune, but Marik will 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). Yami Marik tributes "Bowganian" and "Swallowtail Spike Lizard" and pays all but 1 of his Life Points (Marik 1001 → 1), in order to activate "The Winged Dragon of Ra's" second effect, increasing its ATK and DEF by the total amount of ATK/DEF and Life Points tributed/payed ("The Winged Dragon of Ra": 699 → 3899 → 4899/699 → 2399 → 3399). Yami Marik then activates "Class System" to negate the effect of "Obelisk" since its Level isn't higher than the Level of "The Winged Dragon of Ra". "The Winged Dragon of Ra" attacks "Obelisk the Tormentor", but Yami Yugi activates "Magical Dimension", Tributing "Obelisk the Tormentor" and "Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts" to Special Summon "Dark Magician" (2500/2100) in Attack Position. Since "Obelisk" has left the field, the attack made by "The Winged Dragon of Ra" is negated as it has lost its original target. Yami Yugi is about to activate "Ragnarok", which will destroy "The Winged Dragon of Ra".

Duel concludes next episode.

Differences in adaptations

  • In the dub, whilst Marik is possessing 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.
