As he takes out the Millennium Eye, it projects an image of current events inside the Dark RPG on top of the tablet.
Motives Behind Aknadin's Betrayal
Pharaoh: "Seto! Do not be deluded! Our duty is to protect this land and this country! And to accomplish it, we have to defeat Zorc! It's alright for you if this evil God comes out and takes over the motherland?"
Aknadin:"Great Dark Priest": "Hmpf! This motherland...? Then, I shall ask one thing... Who has protected this land and country until now? You lowlife? No. Wrong. Then, was it the father of you lowlife?"
Aknadin: "Not even my elder brother, Aknamkanon, could do such a thing. I! I, as his younger brother was...!"
Then, Aknadin/"Great Dark Priest" reveals his true motives for his betrayal: it is the jealousy and lack of appreciation received after defending the kingdom from invading armies. The Egyptian people revered and thanked King Aknamkanon for Egypt's victories, when in reality Aknamkanon was in favor of a more idealistic and peaceful approach, leaving war only as a last resort. It was actually Aknadin who pressed the king to mobilize the troops and attack first, and then created the Millennium Items after finding the Millennium Spellbook. In addition, Aknadin decided to be the shadow whilst his elder brother was the light even if he had to stain his hands in blood for that sake.
However, creating the Items was not exclusively beneficial to Egypt.
Shimon Muran: "But, even so...! Aknadin - dono...! If thou did care so much for His Majesty King Aknamkanon, why are thou betraying him now?"
Aknadin: "Shimon! Do not use words such as betrayal. The relationship between my elder brother and I...!"
Hassan: "You merely manipulated King Aknamkanon to your own ends and to be able to gain the Dark."
Aknadin: "What are you speaking about, Hassan!? If you really were the protector of the former Pharaoh, then you should know! The censured truth between Aknamkanon and I! We were twin brothers!"
Aknadin: "So, I merely became a helper to my elder brother. I had to abandon my wife and Seto... And soil my hands in blood. However! Even though after all those years, my loyalty remained intact! However... Seto. You finally returned... To my side. Seto! Cannot you feel it? Cannot you feel this Fate...?"
Priest Seto: "(thinking): I was told that my father perished in battle in the battlefield... I wanted to become a priest for the sake of this country and that of the Pharaoh... The one who assisted me in that was... Aknadin - sama... Thou were the one! I wasn't aware that thou existed as my father... However... Thou knew I was thy son... That is why thou did so much for me... But, in this current situation, why...? Thou are suppossedly my father..."
Aknadin: "Seto! Remember the White Dragon! It itself will be the one to guide you along Fate's pathways! Seto! You have been chosen by it!"
Priest Seto: "The White Dragon...? The White Dragon would guide my fate, allow for me the become the Pharaoh...?"
Pharaoh: "Impossible! If the Great Evil God Zorc is ressurected, then the world shall be destroyed and nothing will be left! What's the point in becoming King afterwards? Seto! Don't be fooled!"
The Pharaoh tries to run towards Seto, but Aknadin stops him with one magical attack. Seto looks at him again.
Aknadin: "You do not understand it, Seto? When the Great Evil God Zorc is revived, this country shall become the 'Dark World'! We merely needs to assist Zorc - sama in the creation of the new world! And the one who shall rule over it shall be... You! Seto! You shall become the Dark King!"
Hassan: "Pharaoh, I shall block him. I will not allow him to harm thou!"
Sensing Seto is slowly giving in to temptation, Kisara wakes up at the Royal Palace. Seto hears the cry of the "White Dragon". Kisara sets off to find Seto to prevent him to join the Dark. Yami Bakura as Honda smirks and sees her run off.
Yami Bakura: "(thinking): Yeah, hurry it up and run off. It'd be troublesome if ya couldn't join Seto."
Bobasa's Role is Revealed
Back at the Royal Palace, Bobasa is crying because... there's not a scrap of food left in the kitchens! And the search for the Pharaoh's real name is at a dead end. Yami Bakura questions Bobasa, wondering why he could move when he was using one of his Master Items and knows that he's an NPC. Bobasa merely begs to have more food. The others come in, and he tries to play the innocent, which they buy.
The others want to leave Bobasa behind, but Yugi decides they will help find Bobasa some more food. Yami Bakura is growing impatient.
Yami Bakura: "(thinking): What the heck are those guys thinking? Don't they realize that the guy is, strangely enough, too hungry?"
The find some grapes, and drag Bobasa to the tree. He thanks them and with replenished energy, then he... starts floating in mid-air?! He's turned into a means of aerial transportation.
Everybody jumps on Bobasa's back, and he starts floating towards the desert. Meanwhile "evil" Tristan Taylor thinks to himself (in Bakura's voice): "This dude is part of this game's scenario... It's a hidden switch devised to find the 8th key... Heh. Without Yugi & co., I'd definitely missed this switch."
Bobasa: "Bobasa is the one who should be thanking you guys. You were very kind to give me those grapes to fill up Bobaba's stomach."
The others also realize that they fill all stuffed up and realize that their 'feeling' of being hungry was because of Bobasa.
Bobasa: "Bobasa ain't hungry anymore and that's alright. But... (he begins to sing) ... Bobasa's "bo" is the "bo" of "kuishinbo" (glutton)... Bobasa's "ba" is the "ba" of "bangohan" (dinner)... Bobasa's "sa" is the "sa" of... sayounara."
And with those words, Bobasa vanishes into thin air .
Yami makes a grimace: he knows he's up to something.
Yami Bakura: "Well... The great mine's... No, the Great Evil God Zorc's countdown to ressurection is progressing... The climax is coming closer... But I'm sorry if we forgot 'bout how's the main cast doing like..."
