Turn 9: Mask of Light
Mask of Light activates "Mask of Dispel" by targeting Yugi's "Multiply".

With the effect of "Multiply" negated, the copies of "Kuriboh" disappear. Mask of Light then Normal Summons "Grand Tiki Elder" (1500/800) in Attack Position, then uses it to attack Yugi's "Kuriboh". "Kuriboh" is destroyed.
Turn 10: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi takes 500 damage due to the effect of "Mask of Accursed", and another 300 due to the effect of "Mask of Dispel" (Yugi: 3500 → 2700 LP). Yugi draws "Chain Destruction", then Sets a card.
Turn 11: Mask of Darkness
Mask of Darkness activates "Curse of the Masked Beast". He Tributes "Grand Tiki Elder" and "Shining Abyss" to Ritual Summon "The Masked Beast" (3200/???). He then attacks Yugi directly using "The Masked Beast", but Kaiba uses his "Gadget Soldier" to take the attack instead. "Gadget Soldier" is destroyed. Yugi then activates his face-down "Card Destruction", forcing all players to discard all cards in their hands, then draw the same number of cards discarded. At this point, the effect of Yugi's "Archfiend of Gilfer" activates from the Graveyard, decreasing the ATK of all monsters by 500 ("The Masked Beast": 3200 → 2700 ATK), but no players other than Yugi know this yet.
