"Phoenix Rising!", titled "Phoenix Dance!!" (不死鳥舞ふしちょうまう!! Fushichō Mau!!) in the Japanese version, is the 249th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 190th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.

Dark Marik reveals the third power of "The Sun Dragon Ra"; "God Phoenix", planning to use it to devastate Jonouchi.

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

Duel continues from the previous chapter...

Turn 12: Dark Marik
Dark Marik activates the effect of "The Sun Dragon Ra" as it is in the form of "God Phoenix", paying 1000 LP to destroy "Gilford the Lightning" without damage calculation when "Ra" attacks it this turn (Dark Marik: 2400 → 1400). "Ra" attacks and destroys "Gilford". During the End Phase, the effect of "Monster Reborn expires due to the effect of "Ra", and it returns to the Graveyard.

Turn 13: Jonouchi
Jonouchi draws "Gearfried the Iron Knight" and subsequently Normal Summons it in Attack Position (1800/1600). Jonouchi is about to attack with "Gearfried", but he passes out due to the pain he suffered from the attack of "Ra", so the Duel ends. As Jonouchi is unable to continue, Dark Marik is declared the winner.
