The Unbreakable Duelist, is the 161st chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist in the English version and the 220th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! in the Japanese version.

With guidance from Dark Yugi, Mai is able to fight back against Dark Marik, despite his Shadow Game, only for Dark Marik to continue to press his attack.


Dark Yugi is able to soothe Mai's mental trauma, reminding her that the injuries are illusions. With her friends supporting her, Mai fights back, bringing out "Amazoness Chain Master." Dark Marik Summons a torture monster, "Viser Des," which is invincible for three turns, and crushes the head of "Amazoness Chain Master," forcing Mai to destroy her own monster. Dark Yugi's attempts to stop the Shadow Game are futile, and Dark Marik takes pleasure in torturing both Dark Yugi and Mai. Mai seizes the chance to use the effect of her "Chain Master" to take "The Sun Dragon Ra," from Dark Marik's Deck. Dark Marik immediately warns Mai that torturing her won't be enough now.
