Differences in adaptations[edit]

  • The dub cuts a shot of Yugi and his friends walking down the street.
  • The dub cuts a scene showing Joey telling Mai to stop wasting time and to think about the finals. She says she knows! Then he tells her to keep fighting with their support.
  • The dub cuts a scene showing Serenity reminding her brother that he just said he was a big fan of Magnum's, and he says that was five minutes ago.
  • The dub removes the scene of Joey kicking the car.


  • When Yugi mentions "Harpie's Feather Duster" in the dub, he says that it cancels out the effects of all Magic Cards. The card does not negate, but destroys, all Spell and Trap Cards the opponent controls.
  • In some shots, Mai's lipstick is missing.
  • When Magnum was explaining the effect of "Ninja Smoke Ball", he had three cards in his hand when he should only have two.
  • After Joey saves Mai by catching her and Magnum offers to help her up, causing her to slap away his hand, her detached sleeve is missing upon slapping him, but returns in the next scene.
