"The Hymn of Hell" (地獄じごくうた Jigoku no Uta) is the 244th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 185th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.

Dark Marik has turned his Duel with Jonouchi into the same Shadow Game as he did during his Duel with Mai. Vowing to rescue Mai, Jonouchi goes ahead with the Shadow Duel.

Featured Duel: Katsuya Jonouchi vs. Dark Marik[edit]

Duel continues from the previous chapter...

Turn 2: Dark Marik
Dark Marik Sets a card.

Turn 3: Jonouchi
Jonouchi Normal Summons "Rocket Warrior" (1500/1300) in Attack Position. As Jonouchi Summoned a monster, Dark Marik activates his Set "Hidden Soldiers", allowing him to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower monster from his hand. He Special Summons "Viser Des" (500/???) in Attack Position. The effect of "Viser Des" activates, preventing it from being destroyed for three turns after it is Summoned and allowing it to attack one of Jonouchi's monsters. "Viser Des" attacks "Panther Warrior", but it is not destroyed due to its own effect and it reduces the ATK of "Panther Warrior" by its own ATK ("Panther Warrior": 2000 → 1500 ATK). Jonouchi activates the effect of "Rocket Warrior", preventing it from being destroyed by battle when it attacks. "Rocket Warrior" attacks "Helpoemer", but it is not destroyed via its own effect and it reduces the ATK of "Helpoemer" by its own ATK ("Helpoemer": 2000 → 500 ATK). "Panther Warrior" attacks and destroys "Helpoemer" (Dark Marik: 4000 → 3000 LP). As it was destroyed by battle, the effect of "Helpoemer" places it in Jonouchi's Graveyard. At the end of the Battle Phase, the effect of "Helpoemer" activates, discarding a random card from Jonouchi's hand.

Duel continues in the next chapter...
