"One Point of Life!", titled "One Point of Strength!!" (１ポイントの命！！ Ichi Pointo no Chikara!!) in the Japanese version, is the 275th chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 216th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.
Featured Duel: Dark Yugi VS Dark Marik
Turn 15: Dark Marik
"The God of the Obelisk" has its ATK increased to ∞ after sacrificing "Metal Reflect Slime" and "Revival Jam". this effect also allows "Obelisk" to attack during the opponent's turn. Dark Marik then activates "The Sun Dragon Ra's" effect to pay all but 1 of his Life Points to increase "Ra"'s ATK and DEF by the same amount ("Ra 699 → 1699/699 → 1699) (Marik 1001 → 1). Dark Marik activates another of "The Sun Dragon Ra's" abilities, Tributing "Bowganian" and "Granadora" to increase Ra's ATK and DEF by the total of their ATK and DEF. ("Ra": 1699 → 4899/1699 → 3399). Dark Yugi orders "Obelisk" to attack. Since "Ra" is higher on the Divine Hierachy, the effect of "Obelisk" is negated by "Ra". (NOTE 1: In the manga, a hierarchy among God Cards is present. Ra has a higher rank than "Obelisk," and is thus unaffected by an attack boosted by the latter's effect). The effect of Obelisk resolves (∞ → 4000/4000). "Ra" continues its attack against "Obelisk", but Dark Yugi activates his Set "Dimension Magic" in response. Since he controls a Spellcaster-Type monster, he sacrifices "Obelisk" and "Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts" to Special Summon "Dark Magician" from his hand (2500/2100) in Attack Position. (NOTE 2: In real game, "Magical Dimension" only require 1 Tribute monster.) (NOTE 3: In the VIZ translation, it says to Special Summon the Spellcaster-Type monster from the Deck, whereas the original Special Summons it from the hand, which is similar to the real card) (NOTE 3: Replay is not applied during the battles in the manga. If one of the monsters in battle is removed from the field, it is treated as it "dodged" the attack and the battle is resolved with the owner not receiving any damage.) Dark Yugi activates "Dimension Magic's" second effect, combining Dark Magician's and Dark Magician Girl's power and granting them ability to destroy one Monster Card on the field during battle. Yugi targets "The Sun Dragon Ra". (NOTE 4: In real game, "Magical Dimension" destroys 1 monster on the field. In this chapter, it appears to grant 2 Spellcasters the ability to destroy any one monster by simultaneously attacking the target.)
The following cards were used in this chapter.
