Featured Duel: Dark Yugi vs. Masumi Momono
Turn 2: Yugi
Yugi Normal Summons "Bau the Black Dog Beast" (1800/1200) in Attack Position. It attacks and destroys "Tellus". The effect of the latter card activates, Special Summoning a "Tellus Wing Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. Yugi Sets a card.
Turn 3: Masumi
Masumi Sets a card. He then Tributes the "Tellus Wing Token" to Normal Summon "Krepaal" (2200/1800) in Attack Position. It attacks "Bau", but Yugi activates his face-down "Negate Attack", negating the attack and ending the Battle Phase.
Turn 4: Yugi
Yugi Sets a card. He then Tributes "Bau" to Normal Summon "Dark Red Enchanter" (2300/2200) in Attack Position.[Notes 1] It attacks "Krepaal", but Masumi activates his face-down "Polarizing Prism", destroying "Dark Red Enchanter"
Turn 5: Masumi
Masumi Sets a card and attacks directly with "Krepaal" (Yugi 4000 → 1800). Yugi activates his face-down "Stairway to the Underworld", Special Summoning "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness" (2700/2500) and "Kaien the Emissary of Darkness" (2500/2700) from his Deck in Attack Position, as he took damage from a direct attack while he controls no monsters.[Notes 2]
Turn 6: Yugi
Yugi attacks "Krepaal", but Masumi activate his face-down "Refracting Prism", Tributing "Krepaal" and Special Summoning two "Refraction Tokens" with half of stats of "Krepaal" (1100/900 each). "Gorz" and "Kaien" each attack and destroy a token (Masumi 4000 → 1000). Masumi activates the effect of the "Tualatin" (2800/2500) in his hand, Special Summoning it as two of his monsters were destroyed simultaneously. Its effect destroys all DARK monsters on the field, so "Gorz" and "Kaien" are destroyed. Yugi Sets a card, but Masumi activates his face-down "Disarm" to destroy it. Yugi activates his face-down "Domain of the Dark Ruler", negating "Disarm". It will negate any Magic or Trap Card activated as long it remains face-up. As Yugi negated a card effect, he may Special Summon "Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord" (2800/2500) from his hand in Attack Position. As it was a Trap Card that was negated, "Tualatin" is destroyed.[Notes 3]
Turn 7: Masumi
Turn 8: Yugi
"Van'Dalgyon" attacks directly (Masumi 1000 → 0).
