Featured Duel: Dark Yugi vs. Maximillion J. Pegasus
Pegasus Sets a card. Yugi switches to Dark Yugi.
Dark Yugi's Turn
Dark Yugi attacks "Dark-Eyes Illusionist" with "Curse of Dragon", but the special ability of "Dark-Eyes Illusionist" activates, paralyzing "Curse of Dragon" and rendering it unable to attack.
Pegasus Normal Summons an unnamed monster and activates "Black Illusion Ritual", tributing both of his monsters to Ritual Summon "Relinquished" (ATK 0). "Relinquised" absorbs Yugi's "Curse of Dragon", making its ATK and DEF the ATK and DEF of "Curse of Dragon" (ATK 2000/DEF 1500).
Dark Yugi's Turn
Dark Yugi attacks "Relinquished" with "Dark Magician", but "Relinquished" uses the absorbed "Curse of Dragon" as a shield; "Curse of Dragon" is destroyed instead of "Relinquished", and Yugi takes the resulting battle damage (Yugi LP 400).
Pegasus activates the effect of "Relinquished", absorbing "Dark Magician" and making its ATK and DEF the ATK and DEF of "Dark Magician" (ATK 2500/DEF 2100). Dark Yugi switches to the normal Yugi.
Pegasus attacks and destroys "Feral Imp" with "Relinquished". At this point, the normal Yugi passes out.
