"The Undying Grudge!", titled "Soul of Grudge!!" (怨念の魂!! On'nen no Tamashī!!) in the Japanese version, is the 205th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 146th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.

Dark Yugi and Dark Bakura continue their Duel in the first of Battle City's quarter-finals, with Dark Bakura having just lured Dark Yugi into allowing him to Summon "Dark Necrofear".

Featured Duel: Dark Yugi vs Dark Bakura[edit]

Continued from previous chapter...

Turn 7: Dark Bakura
Dark Bakura has just Special Summoned "Dark Necrofear." He Sets "Destiny Board."

Turn 8: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi draws. He Tributes "Baphomet" to Summon "Dark Magician Girl." (2000/1700) Dark Yugi activates his Set Spell Card "Magic Formula," and equips it to "Dark Magician Girl" to increase her ATK by 500. (2000 - 2500 ATK) "Dark Magician Girl" attacks "Dark Necrofear" and destroys it. (Bakura: 450). Since "Dark Necrofear" has been sent to the Graveyard, its effect allows Dark Bakura to target one of Dark Yugi's monsters during each of his turns, and if that monster declares an attack, Dark Bakura will gain Life Points equal to half the ATK of the "possessed" monster, and Dark Yugi will lose the same amount. "Gamma the Magnet Warrior" attacks Bakura's Life Points directly, but Bakura has targeted it with "Dark Necrofear's" effect, resulting in the attack being negated, Dark Yugi losing Life Points equal to half of "Gamma's" ATK (Yugi: 3250) while Bakura gains that amount of Life Points (Bakura: 1200). Since "Dark Necrofear" is in Dark Bakura's Graveyard, he can activate his Set "Destiny Board." During Dark Yugi's End Phase, it spells out a new letter of "DEATH," so it spell out the letter D. After all five letters have been spelled out, Dark Bakura can declare an automatic win.

Turn 9: Dark Bakura
Dark Bakura draws, then he activates Permanent Spell Card "The Dark Door." Dark Yugi is now only allowed to declare one attack per turn. Dark Bakura Normal Summons "Earthbound Spirit" (500/2000) in Defense Position.

Turn 10: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi draws, then he Normal Summons "Kuriboh" in Defense Position. "Dark Magician Girl" attacks "Earthbound Spirit," but Dark Bakura has targeted her with the effect of "Dark Necrofear," so the attack is negated and Dark Yugi takes damage equal to half the ATK of "Dark Magician Girl." (Yugi: 2000) while Bakura gains the same amount of Life Points. (Bakura: 2450) During the End Phase,"Destiny Board" spells the second letter, E.
