Turn 7: Dark Bakura
Dark Bakura has just Special Summoned "Dark Necrofear." He Sets "Destiny Board."

Turn 8: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi draws. He Tributes "Baphomet" to Summon "Dark Magician Girl." (2000/1700) Dark Yugi activates his Set Spell Card "Magic Formula," and equips it to "Dark Magician Girl" to increase her ATK by 500. (2000 - 2500 ATK) "Dark Magician Girl" attacks "Dark Necrofear" and destroys it. (Bakura: 450). Since "Dark Necrofear" has been sent to the Graveyard, its effect allows Dark Bakura to target one of Dark Yugi's monsters during each of his turns, and if that monster declares an attack, Dark Bakura will gain Life Points equal to half the ATK of the "possessed" monster, and Dark Yugi will lose the same amount. "Gamma the Magnet Warrior" attacks Bakura's Life Points directly, but Bakura has targeted it with "Dark Necrofear's" effect, resulting in the attack being negated, Dark Yugi losing Life Points equal to half of "Gamma's" ATK (Yugi: 3250) while Bakura gains that amount of Life Points (Bakura: 1200). Since "Dark Necrofear" is in Dark Bakura's Graveyard, he can activate his Set "Destiny Board." During Dark Yugi's End Phase, it spells out a new letter of "DEATH," so it spell out the letter D. After all five letters have been spelled out, Dark Bakura can declare an automatic win.

This Chapter was redone in the end of episode 82 and few at the start of episode 83 of the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. a number of changed were made include:

  • During the Duel, Bakura was still wearing his jacket.
  • In the Manga, Dark Magician Girl's breasts was bigger and her cleavage reveal them much, compare to the anime also in the anime the hexagram she wearing was changed to a pentagram. (in fact, those changes in Dark Magician Girl always happened during the whole series).
  • In the manga, Bakura wasn't forced to Sacrifice monster to keep the dark spirit so he didn't sacrificed Earthbound Spirit and it remains for long time in the duel.
