"Double Duel, Part 1", known as "The Mask's Curse - High-Rise Duel" in the Japanese version, is the seventieth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. It first aired in Japan on August 28, 2001, and in the United States on May 3, 2003.


When a player's Life Ppoints reach 0, the glass floor under them will break, causing them to fall to their death. (In the English dub, they would fall into a vortex that would suck them into the Shadow Realm.)

Joey Wheeler, Téa Gardner, and Mokuba Kaiba are taken hostage.

Featured Duel: Yami Yugi and Seto Kaiba vs. Lumis and Umbra, Part 1[edit]

Turn 1: Lumis
Lumis draws. He then Sets two cards.

Turn 2: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Normal Summons "Beta The Magnet Warrior" (1700/1600) in Defense Position.

Turn 3: Umbra
Umbra draws. He then Normal Summons "Shining Abyss" (1600/1800) in Defense Position. Lumis then activates his face-down "Mask of Brutality", equipping it to "Shining Abyss" and increasing its ATK by 1000 as well as decreasing its DEF by 1000 ("Shining Abyss": 1600 → 2600/1800 → 800). During each of Lumis' Standby Phases, he must pay 1000 Life Points or else "Mask of Brutality" will be destroyed. Umbra then activates "Masked Doll" to negate the cost of "Mask of Brutality".

Turn 4: Kaiba
Kaiba draws. He then Sets two cards. Kaiba's hand contains "Saggi the Dark Clown", "Monster Reborn", "Vorse Raider", and "Battle Ox". Kaiba then Normal Summons "Vorse Raider" (1900/1200) in Attack Position.

Duel continues in the next episode

Differences in adaptations[edit]

  • The blood on Bakura Ryou's bandage is edited out in the dub.
  • When Solomon Muto loads Bakura into the taxi, the word "TAXI" appears on the door and was erased in the dub.
  • Most of the fight between Joey Wheeler and the Rare Hunters is cut, including the part when Marik is attacked multiple times by his servants to make him seem more convincingly like their friend Namu. The scenes not cut out are switched around a little, such as when Joey is first punched in the original and lands at Marik's feet before Marik is grabbed, this happens after Marik is grabbed (without showing the strike) to show Joey is "out cold" in the dub. Also, when the fight ends and the Rare Hunters grab Tea's cell phone, Joey is out cold after being attacked more than once in the original, but in the dub after landing at Marik's feet, he actually isn't unconscious yet and speaks to them about taking her phone and other matters when lying on the ground.
  • In the dub, you can hear Mokuba calling for Seto Kaiba's help when he is captured, but in the original, the helicopter drowns out Mokuba's voice and you only see his mouth moving.
  • In the Japanese version, when a player loses, the glass underneath them breaks and they fall to their death. In the dub, if a player loses, the glass underneath them breaks and they fall into the Shadow Realm.
  • A pair of explosives affixed on each Life Point box are removed in the dub.
  • The cracks on the glass are made glowy in the dub.
  • The words "TO BE CONTINUED" are added at the end of the dub episode.


  • When Lumis pointed to the building as to where the Duel will take place, the building (not counting the windows) was gray-colored. During every other subsequent shot of the skyscraper, it was in a more yellowish tint.
  • In the dub, before Umbra plays "Masked Doll", a shot of his Duel Disk shows "Shining Abyss" on the field. Due to what looks like a greenish tint on the "Shining Abyss" card, it seems that it might of been mistakenly labeled as a Spell Card.
  • After Kaiba summons "Vorse Raider", there are 3 cards left in his hand, another shot shows him holding only 3, but then he has more, and this is before his next Draw Phase.
  • In the dub, Umbra says that "Masked Doll" negates the effect of his "Mask of Brutality", but Lumis was the one that activated it.
