"A Duelist's Power", known as "Duelist Potential" (決闘者デュエリスト可能性かのうせい Dyuerisuto no Kanōsei) in the Japanese version, is the 175th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 116th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.

Motivated by Kaiba's words, Dark Yugi continues to fight against Marik's "Slifer the Sky Dragon".

Featured Duel: Dark Yugi vs. The Doll (possessed by Marik Ishtar)[edit]

Turn 20: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi draws. Dark Yugi activates his Set Spell Card "Monster Reborn", Special Summoning "Buster Blader" from his Graveyard in Attack Position. (2600/2100) The effect of "Buster Blader" increases its ATK by 500 for each Dragon-Type monster the Doll controls. ("Buster Blader": 3100 ATK)
