Millennium Scale

The Millennium Scale (せんねんばかり Sennen Bakari, aka 真理を量る天秤 "The Scales of Truth") is a Millennium Item.


Ancient Egypt[edit]

The Scale was originally owned by Karim, and after being stolen by Bakura, was used to resurrect Zorc Necrophades.


A faction of the Tomb Keepers watched over the Scale, along with the Key, Eye, and Ring. After the Eye and Ring were given to others, Shadi kept the Key and Scale.

In the first anime series, Shadi uses this to play the Trial of the Mind Shadow Game with Kanekura.

In the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga, the Scale was used by Karim's predecessor to judge Tragoedia's heart.

The scale appears with the rest of the items in the artwork of "Ma'at". Its silhouette appears in the artwork of "Millennium Seeker".


Thief King Bakura with the Scale

The scale's power is the ability to weigh a person's sins against the Feather of Ma'at. If a person lies while being interrogated by the owner of the scale, or is revealed to be truly evil, the side opposite of the feather will lower, as if weighed down by the person's sins, and if the side without the feather drops to the bottom, the person's soul will be eaten by Ammit, causing death. By placing the scale close to the heart of a person, if the scale tilts, then the person is noted to have darkness in his heart. The Scale has its limits regarding individuals with extremely evil hearts; Bandit King Bakura was so evil that the Scale fluctuated when Karim tried to weigh his evil, while the absorbed heart of Tragoedia turned the white "Winged Kuriboh" dark.

This item also contains the power of fusion. It has been shown to Summon Rabid Horseman, Duos Dragon, and Dragon Master Knight by fusing ka.
