"The Combo of God!!" is the 174th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 115th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.

Marik's "Slifer the Sky Dragon" continues to overwhelm Dark Yugi, who refuses to lose and continues to fight back.

Featured Duel: Dark Yugi vs. The Doll/Marik[edit]

Turn 13: The Doll
"Slifer the Sky Dragon" attacks and destroys "Buster Blader" (Dark Yugi: 4000 → 2100 Life Points).

Turn 14: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi's hand contains "Dark Magician Girl," "Spellbinding Circle," and an unknown monster card. Dark Yugi draws "Magic Cylinder." Dark Yugi Tributes "Kuriboh" to Tribute Summon "Dark Magician Girl" in Defense Position. (2000/1700) Since Dark Yugi Summoned a monster, the effect of "Slifer the Sky Dragon," activates, reducing the ATK or DEF of "Dark Magician Girl" by 2000, depending on the Battle Position of the Summoned monster. Since "Dark Magician Girl" was in Defense Position, it loses 2000 DEF. Dark Yugi activates his Set "Magical Hats," causing four hats to appear on the field and hiding "Dark Magician Girl" in one. The effect of "Slifer" misses the target. Dark Yugi Sets two cards under the same hat that "Dark Magician Girl is located.

Turn 15: The Doll
The Doll draws ("Slifer": 5000 → 6000 ATK, 5000 → 6000 DEF). The Doll activates "Infinite Cards", allowing both players to hold an unlimited number of cards ("Slifer": 6000 → 5000 ATK, 6000 → 5000 DEF). "Slifer the Sky Dragon" attacks the hat containing "Dark Magician Girl" and both of Dark Yugi's Set cards. Dark Yugi activates both cards, "Magic Cylinder" and "Spellbinding Circle". "Spellbinding Circle" prevents "Slifer" from attacking and reduces its ATK by 700 ("Slifer": 5000 → 4300 ATK). Since Dark Yugi controls a Spellcaster-Type monster, he can activate the effect of "Magic Cylinder", changing the attack target to a monster the Doll controls. He attempts to redirect the 5000-ATK attack at the now 4300-ATK "Slifer", but the effect of "Jam Defender" activates, changing the target to "Revival Jam". "Revival Jam" is destroyed, and then its effect Special Summons it from the Graveyard, activating the effect of "Card of Safe Return" ("Slifer": 4300 → 7300 ATK, 5000 → 8000 DEF). The effect of "Spellbinding Circle" expires, as the effects of Spell and Trap cards only affect God cards for a single turn ("Slifer": 7300 → 8000 ATK).

Turn 16: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi passes.

Turn 17: The Doll
The Doll draws ("Slifer": 8000 → 9000 ATK, 8000 → 9000 DEF). "Slifer" attacks and destroys "Dark Magician Girl".
