"The Dawn of Battle!", titled "Battle of the Sun!!" (決戦の陽は昇る!! Kessen no Hihanoboru!!) in the Japanese version, is the 238th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 179th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.

The airship arrives at Alcatraz, where the Duel Tower to hold the semi-finals and finals is located. Rather than the use of a lottery to decide the semi-final match-ups, the match-ups will be decided by a four-way Battle Royal Duel.
