"God Falls!?" is the 176th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 117th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.

Thanks to the hint that he got from Kaiba, Dark Yugi sets in motion his infinite combo that goes beyond the limits of God.

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

Turn 20: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi has just Special Summoned "Buster Blader" from his Graveyard in Attack Position with the effect of "Monster Reborn". (2600/2100) The effect of “Buster Blader” increases its ATK by 500 for each Dragon-Type monster the Doll controls. ("Buster Blader": 3100 ATK) Since a monster was Special Summoned from the Graveyard, the effect of "Card of Safe Return" activates, so the Doll draws three cards. The effect of "Slifer the Sky Dragon" increases its ATK and DEF by 1000 for each card in the Doll's hand. ("Slifer": 13000/130000) Since a monster was Summoned, the second effect of "Slifer" activates, reducing the ATK of the Summoned monster by 2000. ("Buster Blader": 1100 ATK) "Buster Blader" attacks "Slifer", but the effect of "Jam Defender" activates, switching the attack target to "Revival Jam". "Revival Jam" is destroyed, but its effect Special Summons it from the Graveyard in Defense Position. Before the effect can resolve, Dark Yugi activates Spell Card "Brain Control" from his hand, taking control of a monster the Doll controls. He takes control of "Revival Jam", which is then Special Summoned under Dark Yugi's control. Since a monster was Special Summoned from the Graveyard, the effects of "Card of Safe Return" and "Slifer the Sky Dragon" both activate; the Doll draws three cards and "Revival Jam" loses 2000 DEF. Due to the effect of "Slifer", a monster whose DEF was reduced to zero is destroyed. ("Slifer": 16000/16000) The effect of "Revival Jam" Special Summons it to Dark Yugi's side of the field in Defense Position, activating the effects of "Card of Safe Return" and "Slifer". This cycle continues until the Doll Decks Out. ("Slifer the Sky Dragon": 28000/28000)
