"Divine Light, Divine Shadow", titled "Heavenly Thunder vs. Heavenly Darkness!!" (てんいかずちvsてんやみ!! Ten no Ikazuchi Bāsasu Ten no Yami) in the Japanese version, is the 301st chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 23rd chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium World. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.


Using the Magus of Illusion's Magic Blast, Diabound terrorizes the city. Slifer then swoops down to take the blasts, protecting the citizens. With Slifer unable to move without jeopardizing the people below, Diabound starts to build up an energy ball for its Spiral Wave attack. However Slifer launches a Lightning Strike at the ground, propelling itself into the air, where it rapidly launches a second Lightning Strike, smashing Diabound's energy ball.

Fearing the safety of the citizens, the pharaoh orders Slifer to take the battle to the sky. Slifer seizes Diabound's wrist with its tail and drags Diabound into the sky. Diabound is unable to phase through walls while in the air, and Slifer's Divine Lightning is even stronger. The pharaoh orders Slifer to attack Diabound. The God launches a Thunder Force attack, but Bakura reveals another of Diabound’s abilities; Diabound is able to blend in with its surroundings. In this case, it becomes one with the darkness.

The invisible Diabound attacks the city, while Bakura laughs away. The pharaoh tries to devise a plan before Diabound can continue, but the creature launches a Spiral Wave at Slifer from behind. Bakura laughs and claims that not even the Gods can defeat Diabound in the field of shadows.
