Featured Duel: Yugi Muto vs. Yami Bakura

Yami Bakura explains the rules of the Duel:

  • Each person has 40 cards in his deck.
  • The Deck's cards become according to the Duelist's imagination. In other words, each player has no idea about what cards constitute his Deck until he draws them.
  • This is a Shadow Game: the loser must sacrifice his life.
  • If Yugi wins, Bakura will return Tristan's body and allow Yugi & his friends to leave.

Turn 1: Yugi
(Yugi's Deck: 40 → 35) Yugi draws a card and subsequently sets it (Yugi's Deck: 35 → 34). He then sets a monster.

Turn 2: Bakura
Yami Bakura draws. He then Normal Summons "Doomcaliber Knight" (1900/1800) in Attack Position. "Doomcaliber Knight" attacks Yugi's Set monster. It is flipped face-up and revealed to be "Marshmallon" (300/500). Since "Marshmallon" was flipped face-up, its first effect activates, inflicting 1000 damage to Yami Bakura (Bakura 4000 → 3000). Due to the second effect of "Marshmallon", it isn't destroyed. Yami Bakura Sets a card.

Turn 3: Yugi
Yugi draws a card and subsequently sets it (Yugi's Deck: 34 → 33). He then Normal Summons "Silent Swordsman LV0" (1000/1000) in Attack Position. Yugi then activates his face-down "Marshmallon Glasses". Now as long as "Marshmallon Glasses" and "Marshmallon" remain face-up on Yugi's side of the Field, Yami Bakura can only attack "Marshmallon".

Turn 4: Bakura
Yami Bakura draws "Call of the Earthbound". He then activates "Negate Defense" to switch "Marshmallon" to Attack Position and forbid Yugi from changing its battle position. "Doomcaliber Knight" attacks Yugi's "Marshmallon". Due to the second effect of "Marshmallon", it is not destroyed (Yugi 4000 → 2400). Yami Bakura then Sets a Card.

Turn 5: Yugi
Yugi draws (Yugi's Deck: 33 → 32). On Yugi's Standby Phase, the effect of "Silent Swordsman LV0" activates, increasing its LV by one and increasing its ATK by 500 ("Silent Swordsman LV0" → Silent Swordsman LV1: 1000 → 1500/1000). Yami Bakura activates his face-down "Call of the Earthbound" and chains his face-down "Zoma the Spirit" to its activation. The two cards resolve in reverse order. First "Zoma the Spirit" is Special Summoned as an Effect Monster (1800/500) on Bakura's side of the field in Defense Position. Next "Call of the Earthbound" forces Yugi's Silent Swordsman to attack Bakura's "Zoma the Spirit".

Silent Swordsman then destroys "Zoma the Spirit". The effect of "Zoma the Spirit" activates, which will inflict damage to Yugi equal to double the ATK of the Monster that destroyed it, but Yugi activates "Turn Jump" to skip right over this turn's Battle Phase and negate the effect of "Zoma the Spirit" as well as move the Turn Count forward by three ("Silent Swordsman LV1" → "Silent Swordsman LV4": 1500 → 3000/1000).

Silent Swordsman LV4 attacks & destroys Yami Bakura's "Doomcaliber Knight" (Bakura 3000 → 1900). "Marshmallon" attacks directly (Bakura 1900 → 1600).

Turn 6: Bakura
Yami Bakura draws. He then activates "Spirit Sword of Sealing" to remove Yugi's "Silent Swordsman LV4" from play. Yami Bakura then Normal Summons "Disgraced Mage" (1700/1400) in Attack Position. "Disgraced Mage" attacks Yugi's "Marshmallon". Due to the second effect of "Marshmallon", it is not destroyed (Yugi 2400 → 1000).

Turn 7: Yugi
Yugi draws "Blocken" and subsequently Normal Summons it (100/300) in Defense Position (Yugi's Deck: 32 → 31).

Turn 8: Bakura
Yami Bakura draws. "Disgraced Mage" attacks Yugi's "Marshmallon", but Yugi activates the effect of "Blocken" to force Bakura's "Disgraced Mage" to attack it instead. "Disgraced Mage" destroys "Blocken". Since "Disgraced Mage" destroyed a monster by battle, its first effect activates, returning "Blocken" to Yugi's Deck instead of sending it to the Graveyard. Since "Blocken" was destroyed in battle, its effect activates, letting Yugi Special Summon "Lengard" (300/100) in Attack Position. Yami Bakura sets three cards.

Turn 9: Yugi
Yugi draws (Yugi's Deck: 31 → 30). "Marshmallon" attacks Bakura's "Disgraced Mage". Due to the second effect of "Marshmallon", it is not destroyed. Yugi then activates the effect of "Lengard" to destroy it and negate all Battle Damage he would have taken. Since a monster was destroyed and sent to Yugi's Graveyard, "Silent Swordsman LV4" is returned to the field (3000/1000) in Attack Position and "Spirit Sword of Sealing" is destroyed.

"Silent Swordsman LV4" attacks and destroys "Disgraced Mage", but Yami Bakura activates the second effect of "Disgraced Mage" to return it and his entire hand to his Deck in order to negate all Battle Damage he would have taken.

Turn 10: Bakura
Yami Bakura draws "Pot of Greed" and subsequently activates it to draw two cards. Yami Bakura then activates "Cursed Twin Dolls" to force Yugi to pick between the Red or the Black Gift-Box. After Yugi chooses his box, Bakura will get the other Box. Yugi picks the Red Gift-Box, so Yugi's Life Points will increase by 200 for each card sent from his hand or Deck to the Graveyard.

Yami Bakura gains the Black Gift-Box and this causes his Graveyard to be removed. It also causes all of Bakura's cards to become Phantoms, which are treated as being on his side of the field. Phantoms do not count towards the Monster or Spell & Trap Card Zone limit, cannot attack or be attacked, have their effects negated, and are unaffected by all effects. Yami Bakura then Normal Summons "Necro Soldier" (0/0) in Defense Position.

Turn 11: Yugi
Yugi draws "Silent Magician LV0". On Yugi's Standby Phase, the effect of "Necro Soldier" activates, allowing Yami Bakura to Special Summon another "Necro Soldier" (0/0) in Defense Position. The effect of the recently summoned "Necro Soldier" then activates, allowing Bakura to Special Summon a third "Necro Soldier" (0/0) from his Deck in Defense Position. The effect of "Silent Swordsman LV4" activates ("Silent Swordsman LV4" → "Silent Swordsman LV5": 3000 → 3500/1000). Yugi Normal Summons "Silent Magician LV0" (1000/1000) in Attack Position.

"Marshmallon" and "Silent Magician LV0" then attack and destroy two "Necro Soldiers". Yugi attempts to use "Silent Swordsman LV4" to attack the third "Necro Soldier", but Yami Bakura activates his face-down "Narrow Corridor" to prevent Yugi from attacking with more than two monsters during each of his Battle Phases. The two "Necro Soldiers" return as Phantoms.

Turn 12: Bakura
Yami Bakura draws "Counterbalance". The effect of "Silent Magician LV0" activates, increasing its LV by one and increasing its ATK by 500 ("Silent Magician LV0" → Silent Magician LV1": 1000 → 1500/1000). Yami Bakura activates "Counterbalance". Now during each player's End Phase, the turn player must send cards equal to the number of monsters on the field from the top of their Deck to the Graveyard. However, the effect of "Counterbalance" will not affect Yami Bakura as he doesn't have a Graveyard.

Yami Bakura then Normal Summons "Necro Mannequin" (500/500) in Defense Position. He then activates his face-down "Necro Cycle". Now once during either player's turn, Bakura can use this card to Special Summon a "Necro Mannequin" from his Deck. Yami Bakura then activates the effect of "Necro Cycle" to Special Summon another "Necro Mannequin" (500/500) in Defense Position.

Turn 13: Yugi
Yugi draws. On Yugi's Standby Phase, the effect of "Silent Swordsman LV5" activates ("Silent Swordsman LV5" → "Silent Swordsman LV6": 3500 → 4000/1000). Yami Bakura then activates the effect of "Necro Cycle" to Special Summon another "Necro Mannequin" (500/500) in Defense Position.

"Silent Swordsman LV6" attacks & destroys Bakura's "Necro Soldier". "Silent Magician LV1" attacks & destroys Yami Bakura's first "Necro Mannequin". "Necro Soldier" and "Necro Mannequin" then return as Phantoms.

On Yugi's End Phase, the effect of "Counterbalance" activates (Yugi's Deck: 28 → 17) (Yugi 1000 → 3200).

Turn 14: Bakura
Yami Bakura draws "Necro Wall" ("Silent Magician LV1" → "Silent Magician LV2": 1500 → 2000/1000). Yami Bakura then Normal Summons "Necro Wall" (0/0) in Defense Position. Yami Bakura then activates the effect of "Necro Wall" to Special Summon two "Necro Wall Tokens" (0/0 for both) in Defense Position (one for each Zombie-type monster on the field other than "Necro Wall").

Turn 15: Yugi
Yugi draws. On Yugi's Standby Phase, the effect of "Silent Swordsman LV6" activates ("Silent Swordsman LV6" → "Silent Swordsman LV7": 4000 → 4500/1000). "Silent Swordsman LV7" and "Silent Magician LV2" attack & destroy Yami Bakura's two "Necro Wall Tokens".

Yugi then activates "Aria From Beyond" to target "Spirit Sword of Sealing" from Yami Bakura's Removed from Play Zone, and activate "Spirit Sword of Sealing" on his side of the field. Yugi then uses the effect of "Spirit Sword of Sealing" to target "Silent Swordsman LV7" and remove it from play.

On Yugi's End Phase, the effect of "Counterbalance" activates (Yugi's Deck 16 → 5) (Yugi 3200 → 5400).

Turn 16: Bakura
Yami Bakura draws "Necro Jar" ("Silent Magician LV2" → "Silent Magician LV3": 2000 → 2500/1000). Yami Bakura then Normal Summons "Necro Jar" (1100/800) in Attack Position. "Necro Jar" attacks "Silent Magician LV3" (Due to its first effect, "Necro Jar" is unaffected by "Marshmallon Glasses"). "Silent Magician LV3" destroys "Necro Jar" (Bakura 1600 → 200).

Since "Necro Jar" was destroyed in battle, its effect activates, forcing Yugi to send one Card from his Deck to the Graveyard for every 300 Battle Damage that Yami Bakura took. Yami Bakura took 1400 Battle Damage (Yugi's Deck: 5 → 1). (Yugi 5400 → 6200). Yami Bakura then activates the effect of "Necro Wall" to Special Summon another two "Necro Wall Tokens" (0/0 for both) in Defense Position.

Turn 17: Yugi
Yugi draws (Yugi's Deck: 1 → 0). He then Tributes "Marshmallon" and "Silent Magician LV3" in order to Tribute Summon "Gandora the Dragon of Destruction" (0/0) in Attack Position. Yugi then activates the effect of "Gandora" to pay half his Life Points (Yugi 6200 → 3100) and remove all monsters on the field from play. After the effect of "Gandora" successfully resolves, it is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard.

Due to the effect of Spirit Sword of Sealing", "Silent Swordsman LV7" (4500/1000) is returned to the field in Attack Position. "Silent Swordsman LV7" attacks directly (Yami Bakura 200 → 0).

Yugi Muto Wins

Mistakes

  • When Yami Bakura activates "Cursed Twin Dolls" in order to destroy his Graveyard, one of the showed spirit that was lying in his Graveyard is shown to be "Disgraced Mage", even though it has been returned to the Deck via its own effect.
  • In the dub, when Yugi uses "Spirit Sword Of Sealing" to remove "Silent Swordsman LV7" from the field, "Silent Swordsman LV6" is seen being pinned to the wall instead (with 4000 ATK instead of 4500).
