Diabound was just about to destroy Dark Magician/Mahad, when Dark Magician Girl appeared out of nowhere and brought him to safety. Meanwhile, Priest Seto, Shimon, Karim, and Isis have finally arrived to provide assistance. Seto is immediately attacked by Kul Elna spirits, but Shada's "Two-Headed Jackal Warrior" protects him. As he continues to hold back the spirits, Seto & the others go to the underground shrine to help the Pharaoh.

Back inside the shrine, Mahad and Dark Magician Girl combine forces to attack Diabound, but still without any success: the spirits of Kul Elna are not only protecting it, they're increasing its strength. Exploiting this power boost, Diabound multiplies into three. This time, the magicians succeed at eliminating the duplicates, but the original unleashes its Helical Shockwave Mahad. He gets knocked back to the wall, causing the Pharaoh to lose part of his life energy.

Relentless, Diabound attacks again, but Mana activates a Spell similar to "Magical Hats," concealing herself & the Pharaoh. Diabound however has the power to attack all hats at once. The Pharaoh & Mana's hiding place is soon revealed, and they are cast back. Just as Diabound is about to deliver the final blow, it's attacked by a flying scimitar revealed to be Seto's Duos and its Aura Sword attack.

Isis summons Mystical Elf and restores the life energy of the Pharaoh. Karim summons Curse of Dragon, which gets immediately attacked by Diabound but dodges the attack. The Priests' Ka unite, with Mahad, Dark Magician Girl,"Duos, and Curse of Dragon all attacking at once on Diabound. However, its sheild still holds because of the spirits of Kul Elna.

At this point, Aknadin arrives at Kul Elna. He finds it hard to escape the wrath of its inhabitants' spirit, who hold him directly responsible for their fate so many years ago. He is however saved by Two-Headed Jackal Warrior. Then, Shada's Millennium Key senses a powerful force emanating from one of the houses. He and Aknadin enters to investigate, descending into an underground room. They are astonished to find the tablet of Diabound realizing that if the Tablet is attacked, Bakura's "Diabound" will be no more, Just as he's about to summon Two-Headed Jackal Warrior, however, Aknadin hits him with a big rock from behind. The Kul Elna spirits carry him away, as his Millennium Key is picked up by Aknadin.

The battle goes on, with Diabound using its Poison Fang Chain attack and destroying Mystical Elf. In the meanwhile, Bakura thinks that he'd rather wish that Yugi & co. find the 8th key soon enough. He knows it was a good idea to improve along the way and create a clone of his into Tristan. Up on the surface, Yugi & his friends are still trying to elude Bakura's rider servants. It is then that Tristan (who's really Yami Bakura who has taken control of him) suggests that they should try to do something useful.

Yugi agrees, and realizes they should be looking for the Pharaoh's real name. That's something they'd been searching for since a long time ago, even before coming here. Yugi goes on arguing why the was name of the Pharaoh erased from the Tablet of Lost Memories until it finally hits Tristan; it had to be erased. They then remember what Shadi said; if this world is supposed to recreate what happened 3,000 years ago, then the Pharaoh is destined to face Zorc again, meaning the Pharaoh's real name has to be the key to defeating it. They all agree that they should visit the town again, as they may possibly be allowed into the palace as they've met the Pharaoh.

Meanwhile, Duos attacks Diabound, but it once again counter-attacks for some heavy damage. Karim decides it is time to call upon the power of the Millennium Scale. Karim's Curse of Dragon and Seto's Duos then combine to form Duos Dragon, which then combines with Mahad's power for a Ka with triple their original individual strength. Duos Dragon uses its Burst Flame attack, with Diabound countering with Helical Shockwave. The two attack powers are equal, but using the power of Kul Elna's, the shockwave overcomes that of Duos Dragon.

Duos Dragon uses its Aura Sword to block the shockwave, but Seto and the Millennium Rod begin to be damaged, due to the fiery. wrath of the spirits of Kul Elna. Karim then orders a Burst Flame attack, which the shield of the spirits seems to block, but it begins to melt under the heavy heat. As both sides give it their all, Bakura summons yet another monster, Illushu (which seems like an ancient version of Meda Bat). It severely wounds Karim, allowing the Kul Elna spirits to seize the Millennium Scale.

Without the Scale, Duos Dragon splits back into Curse of Dragon and Duos. One final attack by Diabound wipes away the Kas and knocks everyone back. On the other hand, Bakura can now use the Millennium Scale to fuse Diabound and lllushu into an even more powerful monster. Finally, trying to protect everyone else, the Pharaoh walks forward and lets the spirits take him. Seto tries to convince him otherwise, but he insists on ending the grudge once and for all.

Kul Elna's spirits enter the Pharaoh's body and attempt to absorb his soul. However, the spirit of King Aknamkanon lives within the Pharaoh's heart, and he protects him. Aknamkanon absorbs all the dead spirits to lead them towards the Shadow Realm, where they belong. At the same time, Shada is released, and lacking the power of Kul Elna's spirits, Bakura's Diabound is weakened. The Pharaoh orders Mahad to destroy Diabound with one final point-blank Dark Magic Attack. Now, Diabound's sealing tablet is finally shattered.


  • Tristan has become possessed by the piece of Bakura's soul put in him in their last meeting. This is easily noticed as there is shadows around his eyes and his simple black irisis have enlarged and are now olive-colored. This possession also grants him the ability to read Egyptian.
