Marik Ishtar (Duel Monsters 4)
Marik (マリク Mariku), is a character in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 4: Battle of Great Duelist. This is a video game depiction of Marik Ishtar from the manga.
Marik is one of the opponents in the Dark Stage, which is unlocked by defeating Maximillion Pegasus five times. Only one opponent is available at time in the Dark Stage. In the Yugi Deck and Kaiba Deck versions of the game, the player can change the opponent to Marik by using the password,
45565702. He cannot be fought in the Joey Deck version of the game.
Marik's absence from Joey Deck is of particular significance, because defeating him is the only way to get the God card, "The Winged Dragon of Ra", which can only be used in Joey Deck. As with each version of the game, the player must trade with another version in order to obtain their version's usable God card.
Marik's presence in the background of Strings' image, indicate he is controlling Strings.
A copy of this Deck appears, unused, in the ROM for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards
The following cards can be won, by defeating Marik. The chance of winning a card is indicated by the "%" (chance out of 100) and "2048th" (chance out of 2048) columns.
With the exception of "Raigeki", "Dian Keto the Cure", "Tremendous Fire", "Swords of Revealin", "Megamorph", "Widespread Ruin", "Sengenjin" and "Change of Heart", all cards that can be won from Marik were used by Katsuya Jonouchi in the manga.
