"Shining Friendship", known as "Duel of Tears! Friendship" in the Japanese version, is the twenty-fifth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. It first aired in Japan on October 10, 2000 and in the United States on April 27, 2002.

Summary[edit]

The group is outside Pegasus's castle, but Yugi still won't respond to anyone. He is unable to get over what happened between him and Seto Kaiba. Mai Valentine shows up and offers him some of her Star Chips, but Yugi won't move. She challenges him to a Duel for the chips, but Téa decides to take his place. The duel does not start off very well for Téa, as Mai's "Harpie Lady" pounces on her monster and she still does not know some of the rules of the game. She uses a combination of "De-Spell", "Silver Bow and Arrow", and "Elf's Light" on "Shining Friendship" to destroy Mai's "Harpie Lady". Mai is about to activate "Harpie's Feather Duster", but decides not to. She then purposely forfeits the Duel. Yugi snaps out of it, accepts Mai's Star Chips, and everyone heads towards the castle.
