Than Curse the Darkness, is the 217th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist in the English version and the 276th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! in the Japanese version.

Dark Yugi and Dark Marik conclude their duel in the last round of the Battle City tournament. Yugi defeats the "The Sun Dragon Ra." Marik, with his last Life Point, decides the outcome of the duel.

Featured Duel: Dark Yugi VS Dark Marik

... continued from the previous chapter

Turn 15: Dark Marik
"The Sun Dragon Ra" is destroyed by the effect of "Dimension Magic. This effectively destroys Dark Marik as well, since he is fused with Ra at the time. After the attack, Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl are sent to the Graveyard. (NOTE 1: In real game, "Magical Dimension" destroys 1 monster on the field. In this scene, it apparently grants 2 Spellcasters the ability to destroy any one monster by simultaneously attacking the target. In addition, both Spellcasters are discarded to the Graveyard after the attack.) At this point, the original Marik is able to regain control of his body, with the evil Marik now as the sacrifice. Marik forfeits the Duel, automatically dropping his Life Points to 0 (Marik 1 → 0).

Yugi wins.
