"Duel For Redemption", known as "Damaged Pride" in the Japanese version, is the one-hundred-and-twenty-fourth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. It first aired in Japan on August 25, 2010 and in the United States on July 2, 2011.
The Duel between Team 5D's and Team Ragnarok begins. Jack and Dragan, both Teams' First Wheelers, who have a past and fated connection to one another, betting their pride on the line, as the battle becomes intense from the first turn onward.
Jack and Dragan start off the duel with plans to settle things between them once and for all. To their shock, their hand is the extact same as it was during their first duel as well as the order of their deck. Both speculate that fate wants them to have a true rematch, thus enabling them to truly settle things between them.
Turn 3: Jack
Jack draws. During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World 2" activates (Jack's SPC: 1 → 2; Dragan's SPC: 1 → 2). Jack Normal Summons "Power Breaker" (4/1900/0) in Attack Position. He then tunes "Power Breaker" with "Top Runner" in order to Synchro Summon "Red Dragon Archfiend" (8/3000/2000) in Attack Position.
"Red Dragon Archfiend" attacks "Garmr", but Dragan activates his face-down "Nordic Relic Brisingamen" to make the ATK of "Garmr" equal to the original ATK of "Red Dragon Archfiend" ("Garmr": 800 → 3000/1900) until the End Phase. Dragan tells Jack that if "Garmr" destroys a monsterby battle this turn, the ATK of the destroyed monster will be inflicted to Jack as damage. As a monster's ATK was changed, Jack activates his face-down "Reaction Summon" to revive "Top Runner" (4/1100/800) in Attack Position. Due to the effect of "Top Runner", the ATK of Jack's face-upSynchro Monsters increase by 600 ("Red Dragon Archfiend": 3000 → 3600/2000). "Red Dragon Archfiend" destroys "Garmr" (Dragan 4000 → 3400).
As a monster Dragan controlled was destroyed by battle, Dragan Special Summons "Tanngnjostr of the Nordic Beasts" (3/800/1100) from his hand in Defense Position via its own effect. "Top Runner" attacks "Tanngnjostr", but the attacks ends in a stalemate (Jack did this to prevent "Top Runner" from being destroyed by the second effect of "Red Dragon Archfiend" during his End Phase). Jack Sets a card.
Turn 4: Dragan
Dragan draws. During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Speed World 2" activates (Jack's SPC: 2 → 3; Dragan's SPC: 2 → 3). Dragan switches "Tanngnjostr" to Attack Position. As the battle position of "Tanngnjostr" was changed, Dragan activates its second effect to Special Summon "Tanngrisnir of the Nordic Beasts" (3/1200/800) from his Deck in Attack Position. Since Jack controls a Synchro Monster, Dragan Special Summons "Guldfaxe of the Nordic Beasts" (4/1600/1000) from his hand in Attack Position via its own effect. Dragan then tunes "Tanngnjostr" and "Tanngrisnir" with "Guldfaxe" in order to Synchro Summon "Thor, Lord of the Aesir" (10/3500/2800) in Attack Position.
Dragan activates the effect of "Thor" to negate the effects of "Top Runner" and let Thor gain those effects ("Red Dragon Archfiend": 3600 → 3000/2000) ("Thor": 3500 → 4100/2800). "Thor" attacks and destroys "Red Dragon Archfiend" (Jack 4000 → 2900).
