Yami Marik (Nightmare Troubadour)
|Japanese translated||Dark Marik|
|Video game debut||Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour|
Yami Marik surfaces when the player defeats Odion, taking control of Marik's body. He is the final opponent to be faced in the storyline, after the player undoes Marik's brainwashing on Joey. He has to be defeated by the damage dealt from the attack of an Egyptian God Card, and defeating him in other ways will simply make the player have to challenge Yami Marik again.
Yami Marik himself does not appear again after the player defeats him for good, but the player can duel against him and most of the Rare Hunters as part of the third Duel Course in the Duel Base, which becomes accessible when the player reaches Level 20. Finishing the third Duel Course also earns the player Yami Marik's Deck Recipe.
