"Slifer vs. Ra!", titled "Confrontation! Osiris vs. Ra!" (げきとつ!!天空竜オシリスVバーSサス太陽神ラー!! Gekitotsu!! Tenkū Ryū Tai Taiyō Kami!!) in the Japanese version, is the 267th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. The kanji in the Japanese name is normally read as Gekitotsu!! Tenkū Ryū Bāsasu Taiyō Kami!!, meaning "Confrontation!! Sky Dragon VS Sun God!!", while the furigana makes it Gekitotsu!! Oshirisu Bāsasu Rā!!, meaning "Confrontation!! Osiris vs. Ra!!".

In its first English printing, this chapter was numbered as the 208th 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 Marik continue their Duel. Dark Yugi summons Slifer the Sky Dragon, but Dark Marik uses face-down card, capable of Summoning "The Sun Dragon Ra" from the Graveyard.

Featured Duels: Dark Yugi VS Dark Marik[edit]

... continued from the previous chapter

Turn 4: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi chooses not to attack with his three knights and ends his turn (due to Marik's face down card).

Turn 5: Dark Marik
Dark Marik's hand contains "De-Fusion." Dark Marik draws "Card of Sanctity" and subsequently activates it, forcing both players to draw until they are holding six cards. (NOTE 1: In the real game, "Card of Sanctity" removes all the player's cards in the hand and from side of the field, in exchange for drawing until one holds 2 cards.) One of the cards that Yugi draws is "Slifer the Sky Dragon". Dark Marik Sets a card and switches "Juragedo" to Defense Position.

Turn 6: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi draws. He then Sacrifices "Jack's Knight", "King's Knight" and "Queen's Knight" in order to Tribute Summon "Slifer the Sky Dragon" in Attack Position (X000/X000). The effect of "Slifer" increases its ATK and DEF by the number of cards in Dark Yugi's hand x 1000. There are currently six ("Slifer": X000 → 6000/X000 → 6000). "Slifer" attacks "Juragedo", but Dark Marik activates his face down "Revival of the Dark," allowing him to activate a Spell Card from Dark Yugi's Graveyard immediately. He activates "Monster Reborn" from Dark Yugi's Graveyard in order to Special Summon "The Sun Dragon Ra" (????/????) from his graveyard in Defense Position. Dark Marik chooses to Summon "Ra" in its "Egyptian God Phoenix" mode. Since "Ra" was Special Summoned in Defense Position, its effect activates, switching Slifer's Attack target to itself. The attack fails, as "Ra" cannot be destroyed while in "Phoenix" mode.
